You reach out and place your hands on the black orb, concentrating deeply as
you do so. You feel your mind escaping from your body, flowing into the black
orb. Like stepping out of a portal, you arrive inside a small but comfortable
room in a house in Gont. You see a dark-eyed woman who is cooking dinner. She
pauses and frowns slightly at the recipe she is following. Your vision becomes
blurry, and you return to your body with a jerk, instinctively removing your

Anyone got a figure for how long you have to wait till the tide goes from high to low?
It seems like quite a long time, an hour real time maybe?

Re did this quest with a second and to be honest I found it extremely annoying.
1. It is time dependent, that is not that big a deal in itself, but
2. The <dig for clams> command takes time to complete 20 secs or so, it could be a lot faster!
3. Even when you have the timing correct the rate you actually find clams at is low, meaning a lot more searches attempts are required.
"You cannot find a clam.
You stop digging and rise."

I dug once on every room on the beach at low tide and found nothing at all!!! Sure this tip is correct?
Then I started digging multiple times in the same room then. No better luck. No other holes were about ie someone not gone just before me.
I was LD for a bit then cam back and it was halfway to low-tide.
Then I found some clams, trying once in each room again.
I still had to go up and down the beach several times to fill the bucket. It was like 60 searches (digs) plus in total to get 10 clams, which was enough for her.

It is a long and tedious quest, but the experience was nice. Fantastic at adventurer.
