According to the story, the Magic Mirror is said to have swindled from the King by a sorcerer promising fertility to the King's wife, many years before Graham's adventure begins. It is said to be guarded by one of the sorcerer's beasts, but there is no other information about it's location.

The mirror is being guarded—by a large green fire breathing Dragon. The Dragon sleeps in a cave that is sealed by a large boulder blockading the door. You can go into the Dragon's cave and find this bolder by venturing into the cave opening in E4. You will not, however, be able to reach the Dragon's Lair from this entrance.

Before going after the Magic Mirror, you should first collect as many of the items around Daventry as you can get. You don't need them all to get the Mirror, but it's not a bad idea to have everything you need right from the beginning. You should have at least these items before you attempt to retrieve the Magic Mirror:

Step 1: Get the Bucket

Once you have these items, proceed to the well in F5. If you brought the dagger, you can get the bucket by using the dagger on the rope around the bucket.

Step 2: Lower the rope into the well

Once in the water, use an action on the water again to dive. You will end up in a cavernous area. The chest on the ground has nothing of value in it.

Walk to the left into the Dragon's Lair. You will find the Magic Mirror next to the sleeping Dragon. It is not advised to wake the Dragon—he's a little cranky.

Step 10: Throw the bucket of water at the Dragon

Throw your bucket of water at the Dragon by using the bucket on him. The Dragon will wake up as you do this and the water will hit him in the face. He will cough a lot and surround himself in a cloud of smoke. After that, he will exit the room, leaving behind the mirror.

Step 11: Pick up the Magic Mirror

Once you have the mirror, you can exit though the door the Dragon opened up. This door will take you to the cave you could enter though E4.


You now have the first lost treasure!

The protection spell will deflect the dragon's fire allowing you to get the mirror.

I killed the dragon with the dagger, but I didn't think it was the best way to go. I'm not sure, but I might have lost a point, and I lost the dagger. The bucket of water sounds much wiser!

You can also steal the mirror by using the magic ring, which makes you invisible. But for some reason I can't find the condor. Maybe I should have just used the water technique. I'm kinda stumped now. Help?
