A normal sight of moon rise.... on the moon?
|It seems the wizard's gravity spell made you fall all the way through space, landing on the moon itself. Weird.|

In order to acquire both Quicksalt and Zork Rinds to complete Brie's Hearty Zork Stew Recipe in Recipe For Disaster, you must climb the tower and be sent to the Moon by Astralaus' magic.
Points of Interest
After arriving on the Moon in the crash site of an alien spacecraft, travel over the ridge to the southwest to reach the most prominent feature of the Moon's surface, a small colony of an alien species called "Humyns". The settlement consists of several futuristic, subterranean habitats and greenhouses, and is populated by diminutive Humyns as well as a variety of Wybels, as can be found in other places like the Wybel Island in the Sky Islands. There is also a refinery which can be used to process Quicksalt into Zork Rinds and "Burnmilk", as well as a small rocket which can be powered with Burnmilk to return to Gavel.
The Regular Humyn is the only NPC in the settlement. During the quest, it explains how the Humyns crashed and temporarily settled on the Moon, and directs you to acquire and refine Quicksalt in exchange for the other items you need.

|The Moon |
A road leads northwest out of the Humyn settlement crater, and across the otherwise barren lunar surface to the Quicksalt mine. The mine is a long, winding cavern filled with collapsed rocks; at the end is a barrier, with a warning that the cavern is in danger of collapse, which can be walked through into a dark cavern where Quicksalt spawns. After collecting 18, begin to leave, and the mine will start to collapse. If you don't escape fast enough, you will be crushed and will have to wait a short time before retrying the escape sequence.
Throw 6 Quicksalt into each of the three hoppers in the Humyns' refinery, and you will receive Zork Rinds, Burnmilk, and one Quicksalt back. Afterwards, you can enter the small rocket nearby to return to the northeastern edge of the Sky Islands.
- Regular Humyn: For many salts given by you, we obtained just right for burnmilk. For work by strangeling, we present you gift times two! Walk to the space boat close by for return home.
- Regular Humyn: Keep extra salts and carry this zorks rinds of consecutive feastings!
- The Humyns are probably space-travelers who in a series of bad events crashed and got stuck on the moon.
- Wybels are for some reason spawning on the moon, confirming the Wybels class teacher from The Order of the Grook that the wybles came to earth from outer space.
- Don't take the coords above in the moon overall info seriously, if you didn't get it yet, the combination of both x and z value there are equal to the average moon distance from earth in meters in real life.
- There is a "Vibe Zone" at 2418 -5263, just inside the boundaries of the area you are allowed to travel.
