Hi, I also got stuck after solving the gallery stuff.

Spoiler: ShowHide

I'm in the beach and I already took the bottle from the boat but I have no idea what to do next. I guess I should clean the shield to light the beacon but I don't know how to do it (the shred is not working). I tried actions like use dagger on flowers but is not working either (not even a message). Is possible that is caused by a but?


Thanks in advance :smiley:.

 Yes, I took everything from the boat. My inventory is: dagger, shield, ring, shred, rope with resin, bottle.

There is

Spoiler: ShowHide
 something green and natural in the cove that may be of use for cleaning the shield. You've missed it, but it's there



Does anyone know

 What the hell I'm supposed to do at the bunker. I've found the sundial and I know it's related to the poem on the calendar. Someone mentioned something about a walking cane at one point, but I have no idea where that is

If you haven't got the cane, you need to focus on other things first. Maybe do a little detective work.

You can leave the journalist's place? You should be able to walk out as soon as you've talked to him and gotten the camera.


Unless you mean

Stuck on top of the bunker? In which case... you should also be able to just leave

Well, I'm stuck again, in the bunker...

Spoiler: ShowHide


...with the cane and the sundial. I'm sure that each verse from the poem in the calendar points to a number
- wonders (7 wonders but only one stands?) - I try to use number 1 and number 7 for that
- raiders (4 horseman of the Apocalypse?)
- Works of ancient hero (it must be Hercules' 12 labours)
- Seas (7 seas?) - I try using 7 and going from 1 to 7, one by one

Nothing happened. I'm doing something wrong but I do not know what. A clue or hint should help.

This one had me stuck for a long time. One of the numbers isn't right. Which one? Well, there's a way of checking the numbers...


Want to know more?

Spoiler: ShowHide
Check the library. Some of those books are somewhat relevant...


Hopefully this gets you on the right track. :)

Hi guys, I'm stuck in the bunker:

Spoiler: ShowHide
 After putting the sack and the gas on the fan and the door closes, I need to discover the panel code in order to open the right door. The signs on the wall kinda look like numbers, but I already put over a hundred combinations, and so far none worked.


Could someone help me?

Have you gotten the item from the ship?


I'm stuck on this also. Maybe I'm being thick, but I know the answer is to

Spoiler: ShowHide
pre-load with one of the well waters first then give the bottled water to the dragon


But the game won't let me. It says that if I did that, there'd be

Spoiler: ShowHide
nothing to offer the dragon


I've missed something haven't I.

I have bottle of water, bowl w/ water from first well, sticky rope, dagger, and ring.

Just got past this puzzle myself, and had the same problem. Your logic is correct, but you need to first fill the bowl with drinking water, then use the bottle for the poisoned water. (I suppose it could be clued better, e.g. saying that the dragon would notice you refilling the bowl or something).

Thanks folks.

I'm now stuck again with the priest. It won't let me

hide in the closet or use the buttons to wedge the back door to the sacristy open, despite these being eminently sensible things to do


EDIT: Actually, scratch that. I've cracked it.
