The dome is unclimbable.

Nope. It's the nugget specifically that is making the stairs unclimable. It could be that it's just that heavy, but I'm going to say it's magic instead. Maybe it's actually a dwarf egg.

Hall of the Mountain King


Low N/S Passage


At "Y2"


Inside Building
You are inside a building, a well house for a large spring.
A solid golden chain lies in coils on the ground!

You can also see an emerald the size of a plover's egg, a ming vase, a velvet pillow, a nest of golden eggs, a selection of rare spices, a jeweled trident, a wicker cage (which is closed) (in which is a little bird), a glistening pearl, some precious jewelry, some diamonds, a treasure chest and some bars of silver here.

>drop nugget
Safely deposited.

Yeah, we kind of trivialized that puzzle based on the order we did the game in. Usually the nugget is one of the first items one encounters, way before you know about plugh. So it ends up being sort of like the vase, where you're lugging it around for ages trying to figure out how to get it out. (And it can make you a bit more claustrophobic near the beginning of the game, since you're trapped inside the cave as long as you're holding it.)

Only a couple of options left now, guys. Where to?
