Nostradamus's Onion Sandwich

Serious guess the author's mind problems in this one. If you drop the onion, you can't pick him up again. If you hold onto the onion too long, you'll die from his fumes. Yes, the onion's a "he". No, I don't know why.

>x counter. x dispenser. push button. (This improves your sense of balance.)

>search counter. x onion. e. nw.

>look west. (Very hard to guess this action. It isn't hinted at in any way.)

>give onion to prophet. (Nostradamus can't be called "Nostradamus" or "man". Only "prophet". And nowhere in the game is he referred to as "prophet". Very unfair.)

>x me. x house. x tower. put house on tower.

Sorry, but I can't explain what's going on here. I don't understand what any of Nostradomus's statements are supposed to mean. I did understand the "You have won" message, though.

>x tower. d. w. ask man about tower. g. e. u. w.
