# Right Bottom Drawer – 3 number lock and colour markings

Solution3 colours4 book on the large box of drawers, in the bucket, in the cauldron

Hint7 arrows go where the arrows indicate

Hint8 arrows2 go to the corridor and look upstairs

Solution4 arrows3 there’s a marking on the beam supporting the trapdoor and markings on the ceiling. If you position yourself correctly they will form a number

Hint9 substitute the numbers to get the answer

Code 668

There are 4th of 9 drawings, 4th of 10 namecards and 9 bowls inside.

# Bowls

Hint1 what to do with them? you can put them inside the 8 drawers

Hint2 there are 3 more bowls

Hint3 on top of the cupboard, on the shelf below the chemical apparatus

Hint4 the hintcard #1 we got earlier

Hint5 on the right side there are some {} markings that can be found somewhere else in the room

Hint6 + 5th of 10 namecards on the drawer on top of the boxes in the corner. Inside of the drawer’s there’s a namecard

Hint7 side symbols explanation horizontally placed drawer = horizontally placed drawer – bowls on the same level can be placed in either drawer and the result will be the same

Hint8 bowls are marked with numbers

Hint9 numbers indicate on which level of the drawers you should put the bowl but there are more bowls than drawers per level

Hint10 use hintcard #1 to eliminate the incorrect bowl

Hint11 roman numbers correspond to the numbers on the bowls

Hint13 II green < pink but there’s something else about <

Hint14 I orange grains are bad

Solution III, II, I, IV don’t use the bowl with blue dots, don’t use the bowl with the green goo – < indicates both the green goo is bad and the colour indicates the white flour, don’t use the orange grains, don’t use the bowl that is different than other two

Hint16 place bowls from top to bottom or the other way?

Hint17 red pointing finger inside the cupboard

Solution2 4 is the highest level, 1 is the lowest level of the box of drawers

# The Tybur Family Tree – biggest challenge

Hint1 namecard #5 if you missed it inside the pickable drawer on top of the boxes

Hint2 namecard #7 behind the top box where #5 was

Hint3 namecard #8 on top of a barrel back in the corridor

Hint4 namecard #9 on top of the desk

Hint5 namecard #10 below the books on top of the chair next to cauldron and barrels

The family tree is difficult. Understanding the rules is the first key and eliminating possibilities for a spot until only one remains is the best way to make sure you are correct.

Hint6 dotted line spouse marrying into the family

Hint7 pink/blue dots female/male

Rule1 in every generation but the bottom one there’s at least one person whose name ends with A

Rule4 the only way to determine when someone is definitely older is when the person is an ancestor of the other person. This rule is equivalent to Tom is John’s ancestor

Rule7 blood-related means there’s a common ancestor. People marrying into the family aren’t blood-related to family members that aren’t their descendants

Rule8 hint this is the only rule that shouldn’t be taken literally, as indicted by it being a joke

Rule8 hint2 names, genders and rules are the only sources of information needed to understand the meaning behind this rule

Rule8 hint3 focus on names and substring “son”

Rule8 explained the great-grandfather has 2 sons and a daughter named Sonia

Rule9 if at least one of Willy’s children had a name longer by at least one letter. Use this when you are missing only 2 name placements

Rules 1, 4 and 5 are extremely useful. I may skip some parts of the explanations of the solutions but I feel this ruleset is sufficient to solve the riddle.

Willy’s father hint rule 3 and 6

Willy’s father solution George, to the right

Willy’s mother hint rule 3 – there are only 2 possibilities

Willy’s mother hint2 it’s either Kate or Rhea. Use rule 5 and 1

Willy’s mother solution it’s Kate because if we a*sume it’s Rhea then using rule 5 Willy’s final child is Lilia but his final child’s name can’t end with an A

Willy’s wife hint Use rule 7, 6, 5, 8

Willy’s wife solution It can’t be Lilia because Rhea is her ancestor. It can’t be Sonia because she’s Willy’s aunt. It can’t be Rhea because Willy’s child is not Lilia. It’s Marina.

Lilia hint Use rule 5, 8

Lilia solution Lilia can’t be great grandfather’s daughter because her name is Sonia. Lilia can’t be the great-grandmother because Rhea wouldn’t be her ancestor. It means Lilia is Willy’s cousin.

Great-grandmother’s name solution the only woman left is Rhea

Lilia’s father hint rule 6

Lilia’s father solution Isaac

Great-grandfather hint rule 4 and 6

Great-grandfather solution No matter where you place John, Tom is the great-grandfather. He’s to the left as he didn’t marry into the family

Great-grandmother solution Rhea is to the right as she married into the family

Sonia solution the only place she fits is being Isaac’s wife

John and Rob hint use the final hint

John and Rob solution John is Willy’s son and Rob is Tom’s son

Solved line1 Tom Rhea

Solved line2 Kate George Rob Sonia Isaac

Solved line3 Marina Lilia

Solved line4 John

This probably was the single hardest riddle and testing it was mentally exhausting. The chest opens. Inside of it lies the 6th of 9 pictures and a sword.

Sword hint wall

Sword solution insert it into the picture above the chest a secret room opens

# Skeleton

Hint1 some of the bones are marked with roman numbers and there’s a poster which tells you how are the bones named

Hint2 Do you see something about the names? Where do you have to input the solution?

Hint3 Remember the chessboard?

Solution First letter of the name of the bone and the number written on the bone. Put the chess pawns that are next to the board in the corresponding places on the board.

Code C2 C7 H4 F3

7th of 9 pictures appears.

# Corkboard

Hint1 There are no diagonal lines

Hint2 It looks like a seven-segment display

Solution Symbols made up of complementary lines to the lines in one colour give you numbers. There are 5 different colours.

Code 1 3 4 5 6

Inside the chest there’s 8th of 9 pictures.

# The Maze

Hint1 pick up the map. There are colours on the map and the map is separated into numbered parts

Hint2 red arrow on the barrel

Solution map segments are rotated. Arrow indicated the correct direction

Hint3 2nd segment after you reach the end of the segment look for hints that can be seen from the current room

Solution2 2nd segment purple arrow on the roof behind a beam

Solution3 3rd segment crack on the floor is shaped like an arrowhead and there’s something yellow inside

Hint4 4th segment the green arrow is very far away

Solution4 4th segment you can see the green arrow back in the original room with the desk

Maze correct path let’s a*sume red arrow indicates UP direction, left of the arrow is LEFT, right of the arrow is RIGHT, opposite of the arrow is DOWN. Segment 1: UP LEFT DOWN LEFT UP UP RIGHT. Segment 2: RIGHT RIGHT DOWN DOWN RIGHT UP Segment 3: UP UP LEFT LEFT Segment 4: UP LEFT LEFT DOWN LEFT

Follow the corridor until the end to reach the final picture.

# The Finale – Pictures

Hint1 there’s only one place left where you can place the pictures

Hint2 the blackboard with the drawing of tower. What does the tower indicate?

Hint3 you are supposed to sort the pictures by height of the titans on them. The tower indicates the higher the picture is placed the taller the titan is

Hint4 apart from the pictures there are 2 things that differentiate the pictures

Hint5 the size of the pictures

Hint6 and the number of red lines

Solution3 sort by the number of lines (the more the taller) and the size of the picture (the bigger the taller)

Correct order 4 lines, 3 lines big picture, 3 lines medium picture, 3 lines small picture, 2 lines big picture, 2 lines medium picture, 2 lines small picture, 1 line big picture, 1 line small picture

Congratulations, you have heard a sound.

What happened? Final hint under the desk there was a chest which just opened and a journal fell out

Congratulations, you have solved the room.
