Do you mean the bottle of syrup that you get from the pharmacy on Citadel Island?

"If Twinsen follows the instructions on the captain's log of the pirate LeBorgne, when completing the last steps, he will end facing the Maritime Museum, and a sphero will appear, who will give him the coffee pot and tell him to return it to its owner, Lanktir, who lives in the house next to the bazaar in Proxim-City. If Twinsen gives Lanktir his cofee pot, he will recieve the list of locations of clover leaves and boxes in return."

Doesn't have much use really.

"The book can be found in the library, but there is a Grobo reading it. Still, he can read a few passages from it if he is asked."

He can tell you the directions, if this is the guy you where thinking of

Grobo? You sure you don't mean Sphero? The Grobo in the library will talk to you, of course freezing you like it would in any other dialogue.
The Sphero will walk up to you, noting that you have the map, and ask you to return the coffee pot.

Thanks for the link!

I wonder how the game works with regards to recognizing that you're actuallyfollowing the steps and not just moving around. And spawning the sphero out of nowhere.

Maybe it checks that you've started walking in discreet mode from the right direction ?

Out of curiosity I have just checked in the scripts: the Sphero will be spawned if Twinsen walks in discrete mode on the pathway section between the trash can and the lamp post. Of course only if the task has not been given yet.

Strange though, I don't remember having gotten this coffee pot any of the times I have played the game. But I remember the list of clover leaves...

I meant: only if the task of taking the pot to its owner has not been given yet. So it won't appear twice.
And perhaps there are other conditions (apart from the LeBorgne's treasure task), but they are too difficult to trace.

You should be looking for a sphero, not a grobo...

that's strange. there must be some triggers before you can talk with him? maybe you need to talk to some people about the treasure of leborgne, before you can actually ask the grobo about it. i'm not really sure which people you need to talk with though, but they must be around principal island.

Ah, that grobo ! You need to ask around for the treasure of Leborgne first, their is a grobo in the Old Burg's tavern on Principal Island that directs you to the Library. From there, ask one of the rabbibunnies working there (don't remember which).

(I love how we played that game so much we don't remember how it should be completed normally )

I always figured that the game triggers for the Sphero to be able to spawn only after you speak to the Grobo in the Principal Island library.
