Zork Grand Inquisitor Walkthrough
When the game starts you are standing at a crossroads. To the left is Port Foozle, to the right is an old well, and behind you is the path to the Monastery (now the Inquisition Headquarters). Head toward Port Foozle. At the fish shop on the edge of town look at the controls near the loudspeaker. Turn the volume on the Inquisition loudspeaker to maximum. Look at the display case in front of the store. While the speaker is spouting propaganda grab the stuff in the display case (Light Mead and a plastic six-pack holder).
Turn around and go to the dock. Use the winch a few times to hear everything the magic fish has to say. Place the six-pack holder on the hook and use the winch again. After the fish leaves get the Lantern from the Box.
Go to Antharia Jack's shop and show him the lantern (Use the lantern with the door). After he lets you in he'll offer you a cigar and go looking for his wrench. Take a cigar from the box. Jack will fiddle with the lantern (and hit it a few times) then send you back outside, keeping the lantern for himself.
Go to the end of the street. Look at the Talking Grand Inquisitor doll and light it with the cigar. Turn around and jump inside the barrel. After Jack gets hauled away by the Inquisition Police return to his shop and pick up the lantern. While in the shop you can also find a computer that is running Planetfall (Although you can't play).
After getting the lantern leave Port Foozle and head to the Monastery. Read the signs on the fence and get the rope from the Frobozz Electric Totemization Counter.
Now go to the well in the forest, use the rope to climb down the well. After meeting Dalboz (who's trapped in the lamp) and talking to Gael the Enchantress you will have your spellbook and be standing outside one of the secret entrances to the Great Underground Empire.

Turn to the left. Next to the entrance is a small case that contains a hammer, a Sword, and a map. Open the case and take the hammer, then close it and use the hammer to break the glass. You can now get the Sword and Map from the case.
Look on the ground to the right of the entrance. You will find Griff's Totem there -- pick it up.

Match the sections so that the entire window is visible, ignoring the rest of the image. Click on the window that appears to enter GUE Tech.
Move around the fountain to the left and read all the notices on the bulletin board. Continue around the fountain to the hallway entrance.

Enter quickly before it changes back and go down the hallway and listen to all four parts of the message from Belboz.
Head back to the fountain and exit GUE Tech using the door. Turn around and go back up the stairs. The teleport station for GUE tech is to the left. To the right is a pile of dirt. Use the shovel to dig up the KENDALL spell, then use the teleport station to return to the Crossroads.

Head toward the broadcast tower. Use the VORZER spell to close the guard tent, then use MARGI to reveal the invisible fence. Unplug the fence, and then cut it with the sword. You now need to place the artifacts in the correct positions on the tower. The Skull goes in a box at the bottom of the tower, the Cube goes in the hole halfway up the tower, and the Coconut goes in one of the cups at the top of the tower. After you place the Coconut Dalboz will have you balance the cups using the lantern.
After placing all the items look up and cut the wire using the sword. Once the Grand Inquisitor starts climbing the tower cast the spell to bind the parts of magic.
