    Misinterpreting, which also happened to me. Try reading the description of the hourglass in your journal. Specifically, you need to

    have a character equip the hourglass, then walk backwards through the corridor.

  2. I haven't read this entire thread. But, are there any missing things in the game that should appear in Grimoire II?

    I figured you had to walk backwards, but when I saw the item had charges I assumed I had to use it, not equip it. Not sure that would've occurred to me, thank you

    Using them releases a powerful NPC who you can then recruit. There was originally supposed to be an Entropy Flute, too, but I don't think it made it into the game.

    sword ego. After a while he dies on his own (even if he completely naked). He does not have negative conditions. Just in case, I store his container (sword) in the inventory. All the same, he dies.

    Gosh darn, I tried dragging them onto the 'use' button but you have to click 'use' and then click on the item.
    Thank you!

    I can not guess how to open a stained-glass window in front of the chest at Domain of Grendel. Has anyone realized?

    Check for secret buttons nearby, or use Detect Secret as I remember. I loaded old game and chest is opened.

    There's a button around there. Looks like either 4 squares north of your position or 2 squares to the left of the marker you placed

    Thx to all. For some reason I decided that the blinking of the indicator of secrets refers to the secret wall behind which the desired button is located.

    Oh, 100 IS enough, it's just not "on the very first attempt"-enough. You just do it, like, 20 times in a row - and then, maybe, it unscrews. But, yes, it can be unscrewed.
    The same also goes for that Ancient History tablet at the bottom of the Vault of the Ancients. 100 is enough. Just not "on the very first attempt"-enough.

    Ha, yes. Like in Alex kids in High-Tech World. Just have to pray 100 times.

    The character's STR is also involved in the inspection check. Not sure about the actual numbers, sadly.

    Little rosy looked perfect for the job. Tried 10 times, no luck.
    So I edited the skill value to give her 100, for testing purpose - sorry, no time for grinding.

    From memory so may be wrong, but superhigh (75+) inspection did seem to work on the first try.

    One of my frontliners is lycanthrope and fuck it's since forever. :negative:
    I don't know what to do. He is now constantly hides in the battle and party effectively lost third of its attack strength.

    Does someone knows how to cure lycanthrope, btw? One of my characters had it, but he recovered by itself, but it may be from a fountain, can't remember if I drank anything that recovered that. I was used to lycanthrope after a while so I hardly looked to see if my characters was normal again.
