ARR! Now we bury ye tray-shure! *wields spade* :P

I believe I know where this comes from.... it's in the genie's cave in QfG2. You find it after you pass through a door, but to do that, you have to SPEAK THE NAME OF POWER!!! :P

Quest For Glory 2 2015-09-23 at 8.21.29 PM.png


That's the one!

When I loaded an old save to get the screen, I had to use a walkthrough to find out that blasted 'name of power' again! :( The name didn't ring any bells either- where on Earth did it come up during the game?

Anyways, your turn, Rath!

Ad Avis uses the name when he's reciting the prophecy to open the door: "By the name of Suleiman, so shall this be!"

The name "Suleiman" is quite easy to remember if you know fairly elementary Arabic. ;) I don't remember who mentions it - perhaps the Sultan? - but someone mentions the name "Suleiman ben Daoud", which is Arabic for "Solomon, son of David", aka Solomon the Wise, the greatest king of the ancient Israelites. His name is mentioned both in the Bible and in the Qur'an.

In QfG2, the legend is that Suleiman had power over the djinn, and when Iblis was unleashed 1,001 years prior to the events of QfG2, it was Suleiman who bound Iblis to the statue in the ancient city. According to apocryphal and magical literature and legends, the "real" (or Biblical) Suleiman had power over both good and evil spirits. These occult traditions are not, of course, compatible with the Bible, but the Qur'an mentions that he had power over the djinn (such as He Who Waits Behind) and the marid (evil djinn, like Iblis etc.)

Anyway, let's try this quiz for size... ;)

Hey! No fair! :P

No, it's not QfG5. But now that Collector has shown us all the answer, I guess I have no choice but to quit this one. :|

Haha, I guess I was too late! Before I saw his response, I was planning on saying "It's Collector's hair!" :P

:shock:

I'm going to guess the Simbani Village in QfG 3. It could be from QfG 1 though (the green might be too green for the savanna). ;)
