Zeddas - Servant of Sheol Getting Started Explore and get used to the castle layout, including the second floor. At the beginning of the game, the most important areas are the chapel and the library. Read the books, take notes and copy the pictures; they contain explicit hints for puzzles. Grab the pages from the back of the book, and take them each (one by one) to the witch in the chapel for some general hints. Notes: o Don't worry about the courtyard well and the door behind it; the well's use will become apparent later. o Inside the castle, you will pass between two doors you can't open. Leave them alone for now. o Find the fireplace on the ground floor and set fire to it with the Eternal Light (candle). o In the upstairs dining hall, talk to Valkuria (the general in the painting). -- Getting the Ring and Freeing Valkuria Hints: In a book in the library is a picture of the ring Valkuria needs. The picture is surrounded by a knife and fork... The cutlery indicates food... Food is found in a kitchen... Have you found anything out-of-the ordinary in the kitchen? SOLUTION: Returning from the second floor, if you turn to the kitchen table you will see a scroll materialize. Click on the scroll and you'll activate a trap. You have to click on the pots and pans that fly towards you. If you miss too many you die; if you hit enough you'll uncover the ring. Once you have the ring, give it to Valkuria and follow her instructions. -- Getting the Light of Strength (Copper skull) Hints: Read the book with on its cover - have you seen something similar to these shields in your exploration? >From the second floor stairwell, turn right and enter the room with three shields. To move a sword to a new position, click and drag it over another sword, then hold it there until it clicks into place. SPOILERS: The swords hanging on the shield consist of three pairs: two long-swords (straight blade), rapiers (thin blade) and sabers (curved blade)You need to move each pair of swords to the appropriate shield. The book in the library comes in helpful here. SOLUTION: Move both longswords to the shield with this insignia: /| | Move both rapiers to the shield with this insignia: | | Move both sabers to the shield with this insignia: |/ /| -- Getting the Mars key Hints: Look through the book with on its cover. You'll see a chandelier - have you seen something similar in your exploration? Take the page of this book to the witch to get it translated.

SOLUTION: Set fire to the candle holder with your candle. -- Exploring the Bell Tower From the castle entrance, unlock the left door with the Mars key. There are four floors to the tower. A book in the library provides some hints about solving the puzzles in this area. Level One Click on the fountain heads to reveal six buttons. They should look familiar from the book in the library.

You could try each recipe, one after the other. One of them's bound to work... Have you noticed that each recipe in the book is marked a certain way? Take a closer look around the room. Maybe somebody's left a hint somewhere... SPOILERS: On a wall near the entrance is this sign: o o o SOLUTION: Go to the library. Search the books for a recipe marked with the above sign. Put the ingredients from that recipe into the pot. Level Three Go to the desk with the tarot cards, and play around with them for awhile... Looks like you had to copy down all those pictures from the book in the library. Hints: Once you've uncovered all the cards, and know their positions, then you can solve this one. The two pages in the library book are two separate hints. You have to uncover the cards twice. SOLUTION: Once you know where the cards are, uncover in order: the top left, top right and bottom cards depicted on the left page of the book. This will give you the key to unlock the door to the dungeon. The cards will then be shuffled. After you've uncovered all the cards again to find where they are, click on the top left, top right and bottom cards from the right page in the book. Level Four A hint to solve this puzzle is found in the library book. Take the page to the witch for another hint. Hints: Tried ringing the bell? Just once...? SOLUTION Ring the bell thirteen times. Then hold the candle to it. Voila: the silver skull. -- The Dungeons Throughout the dungeons are wandering goblins and demons, all of whom will kill you upon sight unless you have the ring (located in the kitchen). Drag the ring over the monsters to banish them.

Lots of nice animations to be found, including a crossbow-shooting arcade game. Dungeon Level Two The scantily-clad temptresses on this level are almost all BAD NEWS. The one exception to this is Domina... look for her bedroom. Locate Gando and the Witch's head for some useful hints. A step- ladder takes you down to the mining cart, which will transport you to the opposite corner of the maze. In two places on this dungeon level you will find a chain hanging from the wall. Pull the chain to open a trapdoor; you will fall to the third dungeon level.

If you answer her questions correctly, she will move from the fireplace, revealing the key. Dungeon Level Three Tavern: Talk to the gnome and the maudlin drunken knight for some hints. Hints: You need to insert the three skulls into the recesses to open a secret door. The underground water channel will drain, allowing you to enter the lower level. You will need to have the key in your possession. -- Killing Zeddas Once you have the ring and all the keys and skulls, visit the witch's head. Listen carefully to what she has to say about Zeddas. Hints: The demon guard can be banished with the ring. Once you've entered the cell where Zeddas lies, you will need to use the Eagran sword to kill him. Wield the sword and drag it over the demon's face. You will here a thud every time the sword makes contact... SPOILERS: There are two endings to the game. To kill Zeddas, instead of merely driving him away, you need to follow the witch head's advice. SOLUTION: Direct all your attacks at the blue eye of Zeddas. Slice at it from all angles.
