Part 2: The Upper Floors of the Academy

Chapter 10: The Secret Library  

Click with your cursor on the door and ..... Lydia and Zack end up in the Library. Zack tells something about this enormous space. You have ended up in the:

  Central Room of the library.

Lydia and Zack have enteredthe room over the staircase thatis right in the middle of the room. Around the stairs is a balustrade. In each of the four walls of this Central Room there is a large, but closed, gate. Behind each of these closed gates there is a secret room.  It is therefore the intention that you open each of the 4 gates.  

In the walls, next to each gate is a wooden door. At 2 of the gates there is only one such door, but the 2 other gates each have 2 of those doors. Those doors can be opened and then you can put a Glass Globe behind those doors in the niche and then the gate will open. So you need Glass Bulbs and to be precise ... you need 4 Glass Bulbs.

So via the 4 Gates you arrive in 4 side rooms. But thatís not all because in each side room there is again a gate that you have to open with the help of the Glass Bulbs. You will end up in 4 Very Secret Rooms. In each of these 4 Very Secret Rooms a tapestry hangs in a gate. You have to look at each of those 4 tapestries and click on them. You need the knowledge of those tapestries to solve the coming puzzles in the Observatory, the Smithy, the Solarium and the Art Room.

  Lydia and Zack are now at the front of the staircase balustrade and you now see Gate 4 and Gate 1. 

Now click on the rear pillar of the balustrade. Lydia runs to the right and she is standing next to the rear pillar of the balustrade. In the wall you can still see Gate 1. On the pillar is a Glass Globe surrounded by 8 round blue lights. Click with your magnifying glass on the pillar of the balustrade. Zack explains, but says that no one ever succeeded in picking up the Glass Globe. You zoom in on the Glass Globe. The 8 blue lights are burning so grab the Glass Globe now.

 You zoom out yourself. In the wall, on the left of Gate 1, you see a wooden door. Click with your magnifying glass on that wooden door.

 Lydia then walks towards it and you zoom in on the wooden door. Click with your gears on the wooden door and it slides open. In the niche you will see the Holder for the Glass Globe, just like on the pillar of the balustrade. Click with your gears on the Holder and Lydia places the Glass Globe in the holder. 

You zoom out and Gate 1 is now open. Go through the Gate. You will end up in the:  

Dark blue room:

In the middle of the room there is a Pillar and there is another Glass Globe. In the right wall, however, you see another Gate. Call this Gate 5. First zoom in on the pillar and then grab the Glass Globe.  

Zoom out again. You now have 2 glass balls, but 1 of them is in the doorway of Gate 1. Click on the wooden door, left of Gate5.  

Lydia walks to Gate 5 and you now see that this gate has two wooden doors, left and right.  

To open this gate you therefore need 2 glass balls. Walk back, via 2 times in the middle, and Lydia is back in Gate 1.  

Central Room:

Zoom in on the wooden door of Gate 1 and then take the Glass Globe back out of the holder.  

Zoom out again. So you now have 2 glass balls. Never forget, when you leave a room to take the Glass Globes back out of the niches. Gate 1 is closed again and Lydia stands for Gate 1. Walk through the lower right hand corner again to the back of the staircase balustrade. You will now see Gate 2 and Gate 3.  

You see that both Gate 2 and Gate 3 have 2 wooden doors. Go to Gate 2 by clicking on the left wooden door of Gate 2 with your asterisk.  

Open the left and right wooden doors of Gate 2 and place a Glass Globe in the holder in both niches and Gate 2 opens.

Go through Gate 2. You are now in the:

  Pink Room:  

In the middle of this Pink Room is the 3rd Glass Globe on the pillar. Behind the pillar you see Gate 6. Zoom in on the pillar and then grab the Glass Globe.

Gate 6 has only 1 wooden door, left of the gate. Click with your cursor on it and Lydia walks towards it. Zoom in on the wooden door, open the door and place the Glass Globe, which you just took from the pillar, into the holder.  

Zoom out. Gate  6 is now open.  

Go through Gate 6. You are in the:

  Light blue room:

The Central Pillar is located in the middle of the room. There are chairs around this pillar. Find your white asterisk on one of these chairs and then click with it and Lydia runs through and ends up behind the Central Pillar. You see another Gate and in this Gate there is a tapestry.  

Walk towards it and then zoom in on the tapestry. On this Tapestry you see 16 coloured circles and in every circle there is a symbol.

  Click again with your magnifying glass on the tapestry and you will get a copy of this tapestry in your documents inventory. This is the 3rd tapestry.  

  Close the inventory screen and zoom out. Go back through the bottom screen twice and you will see Lydia in Gate 6 again. Z

oom in again on the wooden door, left of the gate, open the door again and grab the Glass Globe back out of the holder.  

Central Room:

Gate 6 is now closed again. Zoom out and then go back to the Pink room to Gate 2.

  Make sure you see Lydia again in Gate 2 and zoom in on the two wooden doors of Gate 2 and grab the two Glass Bolls back from the holders.

 

Gate 2 is closed again Now go through the Central Room back to Gate  1, via 2 times in the middle. Place a Glass Globe in the holder behind the wooden door of gate 1 and gate 1 opens again. 

Go through Gate 1 again into the Dark Blue Room and immediately walk to the right, to Gate 5 by clicking on the left wooden door of Gate 5. 

Open both wooden doors of Gate 5 and place a Glass Globe in the holders. Gate 5 now opens. So go through Gate 5 and you end up in the:  

  Red Room:

Gate 5 is closed again and Lydia is back in the Dark Blue Room.  

Go back through the Dark Blue Room until you see Lydia in Gate 1 again and then grab the Glass Globe back from behind the Wooden Door of Gate 1.  

Gate 1 is closed again. Now go back to the back of the staircase balustrade via bottom right. You will then see Gate 2 and Gate 3 again.  

Click on one of the 2 wooden doors of Gate 3. Lydia then comes right in front of Gate 3.

  Open the two wooden doors and place a Glass Globe behind each door. Gate  3 is then open. Go through gate 3. You are now in the:

 

Light gray Room:

Also a Central pillar with chairs. Walk to the back of the Central Pillar and you will see Gate 7.  

Gate 7 has 1 wooden door and that comes out well, because you now have only 1 glass ball with you. Go to Gate 7.

Open the Wooden Door of Gate 7 and place the Glass Globe in the holder. Gate 7 opens.

Gate 3 closes GAIN. Now to port 4, in the wall opposite the front of the stairs. Make sure you end up there.  

If you have Lydia at the front of the stairs, click with your white asterisk on the floor just in front of Gate 4 and Lydia will be right in front of gate 4.

Gate 4 has only one wooden door. Open the wooden door and place a Glass Globe in the holder. Gate 4 opens.  

Go through Gate 4. You are in the:

  Dark gray room:

  this Dark Gray Room has 2 side chambers, so 3 gates, namely Gate 4, Gate 8 and Gate 9. First go to Gate 8, which you can see directly behind the Central Pillar in the wall.  

Gate 8 has 2 wooden doors. Open them and place the Glass Globes in the holders. Gate 8 opens. 

Go through Gate 8. You are in the:

Brown Room:  

In the middle of this Brown Room is the little pillar on which you will find the 4th Glass Globe. Zoom in on the pillar and grab the Glass Globe.

Zoom out and go back in Gate 8. Grasp the Glass Globe from the holder behind the wooden door of gate 8. Gate 8 closes again and Lydia is back in the:

 

Dark gray room:

Now go, from Gate 8, through 2 times in the middle below to the other side of the Dark Gray Room. You will then see Gate 9. Go to Gate 9.  

Place the 2 Glass Bolls in the holders behind the 2 wooden doors again and Gate 9 opens.

Go through gate 9. You are now in the last Very Secret Chamber and this is the:

Yellow Room:

  Walk back to the back of the Central Pillar and then continue to the Gate where the Tapestry hangs.  

Zoom in on the tapestry. A Riddle is written on this tapestry.

  "Once the gift of a life is considered self-evident

Ultimately, even the heart of the strongest will be hurt.

The spirit will be poisoned by grief and pain.

Until the happiness is only tangible in swirling beautiful memories "

  Click again with your magnifying glass on this tapestry. This is the 1st Tapestry.  

  READY. Go back to Gate 9 and grab both glass balls from the holders. Then go through the Dark Gray Room to Gate 4 and also grab both Glass Bulbs from the holders of Gate 4.  

 

Lydia is now back in the Central Room. Now open your Items Inventory and your Documents Inventory.

 

 

You now must have the 4 glass balls and the 4 copies of the 4 tapestries. If that is not the case then you have forgotten something along  the way. You cannot continue without the 4 Glass Globes and the 4 tapestries, so if you miss a Glass Globe then open all the wooden doors until you find the missing Glass Globe. Do you miss a tapestry ... well .... then you really have to go over and over again to all secret rooms.

 

Go back to the stairs via the middle below and click on the stairs. Lydia and Zack are now leaving the Library and are once again standing outside on the balcony of the small  tower. Go to the right and then over the connecting bridge back to the Lookout. In the Lookout you go to the Yellow Teleporter. Use the Yellow Teleporter. 

 

 

We end up in the Statues Room of the Eastern Tower. The Blue Ball floats to the right of the Yellow Teleporter. Click with your Magnifying Glass on the Blue Ball. 

 

 

Lydia walks there, via the stairs, and you zoom in on it. Click with your gears on the Blue Ball to activate it after pronouncing the Dragonus Enferitis spell. 

 

 

Zoom out. By activating this Blue Ball you have now activated the Glass Globe, left behind the Group of Statues. But we will leave that for now. That will come later. 

 

 

Now go to the Blue Teleporter on the balcony behind the Sculpture Group. Use the Blue Teleporter and Lydia Zack and you end up in:
