The Twelve Heads of St. John the Baptist/Spoilers

From IFWiki

WARNING: This page contains spoilers for The Twelve Heads of St. John the Baptist (Jake Wildstrom; 2007; Z-code).


To determine which head is the true head of St. John the Baptist, you need three clues which are randomly determined for a play session:

  1. look up john in volume:
    • "be clothed in the gold he denied himself in life" (gold)
    • "not be sullied with base gold" (no gold)
  2. examine sheet:
    • "...the skull of St. John..."
    • "...the mummified head of St. John..."
  3. show custard to chef:
    • "By the empty eyes of le Baptiste!" (no eyes)
    • "By the crimson eyes of le Baptiste!" (red eyes)
    • "By the verdant eyes of le Baptiste!" (green eyes)
