The Onion of Destiny
by Jason Dyer

The Onion of Destiny is a Hugo interactive fiction game and is © 1999 by Jason Dyer. It was an entry in the Speed-IF 4 event.

You have come to the top of the Eiffel Tower to prevent a catastrophe. Nostradamus's writings have told you that unless you cut an onion with a ceremonial knife before 10 this morning somewhere up here, the world is doomed.

This solution is by David Welbourn.

Thank You to my Patreon supporters

This walkthrough is provided free of charge since I wrote this walkthrough prior to January 2015 when I began my Patreon account, and also because the work it's based on has less than fifteen locations (so I wouldn't have charged for it anyway). I've since reformatted this walkthrough to use my currently preferred style. I hope you enjoy it!

I'm still creating new walkthroughs! Larger ones too! Please visit my Patreon account if you're interested in helping me create more interactive fiction walkthroughs. I appreciate all the help I can get! Thanks again.
