Today I was playing the game when it .. well here is what happened I had this game about as far as it would go before seeing the king for the first time and between seeing the king and reporting about the rock slide being cleared up I confronted Carlos about the letters I had his copy in hand when I went in to see the king cut scene where Felnor and the librarian were discussing the danger of a general collapse then I went in and told the king that the slide had been cleared then normally Carlos would run in and tell the king that there was another incident this time by the air duct. but no Carlos and the scene just hung till the game stopped.... fun. Thankfully I backed up just before confronting Carlos. so on we go. If there were only some way to break in to the sacred dagger cave I could finish the entire game before ever seeing the King.
