** You also have to complete the wizard's tasks within (entirely reasonable) time limits (the game pauses the clock anytime you are typing or in the spell preparation screens), or he punishes you non-fatally. Events are very specific. When he assigns a task there is always three minutes to complete it. He usually assigns it after five minutes of hanging around the house. He normally only hangs around the house for five minutes, unless he has a task to assign which he adds another three minutes to his time spent in the house.

* MagicWand: You need to "[[KleptomaniacHero borrow]]" Mannanan's wand to progress. Just be sure to return it before he comes back, or it's GameOver for you. Interestingly, you don't actually use the wand to cast spells. Instead, you use it to "inject" magic into other objects, which are then used to cast spells.

** The AGD remake includes all the spell formulas in a book in Mannan's basement, forgoing the CopyProtection aspect, and the gameplay shift from a text parser to a point-and-click interface makes preparing spells a little easier. The game also includes a timer in the HUD with indicators warning the player when Mannanan's going to return home.

* DigitalPiracyIsEvil: That so many people remember being frustrated by this game is a sign of how widespread piracy was even back then: the game is ''remarkably'' easy if you have the actual game manual which contains the spell formulae. Gathering the ingredients and casting the spells covers about two-thirds of the game. There is actually a debate on if the manual was intended as copy protection, but rather a feature, as at least two hintbooks reprinted the manual in complete form including page numbers (with one only leaving out a couple of optional counter spell phrases), and ''VideoGame/KingsQuestIIIToHeirIsHuman'' had its own software based copy protection on the disk itself..

* AdultFear: Graham paralyzed by grief. His son was kidnapped from his cradle and enslaved by his enemies ''somewhere,'' his kingdom has been burnt to cinders by a dragon that his best efforts cannot defeat with innocents suffering and dying on his watch...and then his only remaining child offers herself up as a HumanSacrifice. The canonical game shows this towards the end and its explained by Rumplestiltskin and Rosella, and in the ending.
