    Skeleton is Library Policeman, but it only gives you bunch of reagents and potions. I'm trying to find code right now.

    I've travelled to Moravia VII, drunk from fountain and looks like I'm hale again! Needs some testing, though.

    How about shitton of Arcana and Eldritch books? It's the reward itself.


    Also I'm 185 hours in Grimoire. And for two weeks I've played it without Internet connected because of these save corruptions.

    This is the worst puzzle in the game, partially because solving it requires you to just be wrong. (Grimoire thinks eggplants are black, despite the fact that "aubergine" is the name of a deep purple color.) Grapes also come in three of the six available colors, and the order and starting position seems to be completely arbitrary.

    blue, red, purple, yellow, black, green

    They're pretty straightforward on their own. If you need a hint, check the well in the Museum of Magic back in Crowl.

    Thank you, it works!
    Indeed. I thought that eggplants are purple and grapes are black (because cucumbers are green).

    Like all great RPG puzzles. the Harmonium code just requires a little extra intuition to get right.

    For super combat heavy blobbers is it really above par. Seriously, you can't think Wiz7's was better. Could it have been better? Certainly. But it also could have been way, way worse.

    Kayerts found in the decompiled scripts the true name of the djinn. I followed his example and also found this name. Its

    Agdulhanish
    . The djinn obeys this name, it works. But in the palace treasury on one of the mosaics another name of the djinn is written. Its
    Show Spoiler
    Axashazzar
    . But in the game`s script this name is used as a command that returns an easter egg only. I already named the djinn and spent all three desires, and I cant check it. Maybe someone will check second name?

    I stuck at the end. In the Moon Abyss, I set up a cube, but party can not climb into it, Reality Hijinx merchandise is needed. Whats this? I thought that a magazine or pages from it, but they do not fit.
    The clock in cromlech is set. The rest of the doors are closed.

    It does remind me of the puzzle in World of Xeen that was only solvable if you spelled "beggar" as "begger." :lol:

    Show Spoiler

    The magazines refer to two Reality Hijinx products. You've interacted with one of them. What's the other?

    It's the Havoc Seed.

    Check other areas through the teleporters in the Cromlech.

    I guess I do not notice some obvious thing, but I can not open any doors. Everyone is locked up. There are 2 rooms with a pair of levers in each, but the levers immediately return to their original state, if they are pulled, and do nothing.

    Each of
    Show Spoiler
    the 4 levers opens a different door, leading to 4 separate areas, one of which is the Moon Abyss that you already explored. Use a different lever to open a different area
    and keep exploring.

    This, of course, is logical and natural, but they did not open anything to me. I checked the cache of the game on the steam (one file was downloaded), and after that the doors opened. I apologize for taking the time.

    I have done the Moon and the Spring endings, did the Outworld and Haunted Wastes and can't find how to finish, also is it individual levers that open the skull doors or is it all to do with combos of the four levers?

    Having finished two endings where is the special save game file located?

    good ending, imho, is:
    Show Spoiler
    1. Take seed from Haunted Wastes.
    2. Put it in the clock. (levers that open the skull doors will unblocked).
    3. Go to Plateau.
    4. Defeat Ahriman (if he is still alive)
    5. Go to the flying saucer and fly away.

    I still did not understand why the owl asked me to take milk and jelly.
