Talk to Auguste north of the Herblore shop on Entrana. He will tell you he wishes to leave Entrana by means of a hot air balloon. After a bit of discussion, he will send you out to collect items for his experimentation: three sheets of papyrus, one ball of wool, one full sack of potatoes, and one unlit candle.
Take the requested items to Auguste and he will tell you to construct an origami balloon. To do this, use your ball of wool on a papyrus sheet, then on your unlit candle. Give this to Auguste and you will get a cutscene where you release the origami balloon, which flies, then burns. Give him your remaining supplies for a second test. This one will fly steadily until a "flash mob" (a mob of angry peasants) destroys it.
Auguste is now ready to produce the real thing, and needs you to collect even more materials for him: Yellow dye, red dye, ten pieces of silk, a clay bowl, and eight sandbags, which are made by filling sacks with sand from a sandpit. He will also give you a willow sapling and a basket of apples to pay for its growth, so you can collect 12 branches from it for the platform; however, you do not have to use the tree he provides you, you may use your own. If you don't know where to find items, you can ask Auguste (for example, a bowl spawn can be found upstairs in the glassblower's house on Entrana.) Give him any items you have brought, then collect the rest and bring them to him. Use the willow branches on the platform to construct the platform. After doing so, Auguste will construct the balloon.
Talk to Auguste, who will tell you that the balloon is theoretically ready for its maiden voyage. He will now tell you that it will be you piloting the balloon, not him, and he will instruct you on how to control it. You will need to bring 10 logs and a tinderbox to get the balloon started up. Bring these and get ready to pilot!
To correctly pilot the balloon, take these steps:
Once you have landed, talk to Auguste, who will give you a jacket and cap as thanks for flying with him. You will now be able to return to Entrana and pilot the balloon through a few more puzzles in order to establish more routes throughout the game.
