It is the last page for the

transformation magic potion. Close the inventory screens when you have read this
page and then walk back to the right and enter the kitchen through the large

left in the corner. A Fireball "floats" above the fireplace.
with your magnifying glass on the fireball and you will learn that this is the
place to brew the metamorphosis potion, provided that Lydia has all the
ingredients for it. And she does not have that yet. To the right, behind the
cupboard, is the door to the storage room of the kitchen. So walk to the right
and then enter the storage room through the gate. In the gray back wall is the
goods lift with which things are brought up from the cellar. Walk to the
refuses this, so Lydia just
creeps in the elevator and together with Zak we end up in the:
Below, on the left of the stairs, you see a door. Now, however, continue to the right. On the next screen you see another large wine barrel.
Walk to the large wine barrel and .... you have now found the Wine
Barrels of Mustavio.
The wine barrels of Mustavio are to the left of the large wine barrel. Zoom in to let Lydia really find the barrels now. (otherwise she has not found the barrels).
Zoom out again and go back to the first 2 large wine barrels and the
stairs. Now descend the stairs and then walk to the left.
Such a cooking pot would be useful to brew the metamorphosis potion, but this pot is too heavy and Lydia cannot take with her. Now walk on to the wall with the niches.
You will see that door again. Click with your Gears on the door and
Lydia will end up in the:
Zoom in on the lever and click on it with your Gears and ....
you will see the elevator coming down.
However you cannot go there.
Lydia has to go all the way back to where she found the Pop van Celeste to go through the door again to the Storage Basement to open a secret passage to the Wine Cellar.
So ...... follow the route back, via the stairs and then at the wine barrels to the left, to the kitchen elevator and go back to the storage room via the elevator.
Go through the kitchen to the dining room and via the stairs to the upper room of the dining room. Go through the upstairs room and out through the Wooden Door.
Lydia is again at the top of
the stone staircase. Double-click, in front of the green bed, at the bottom of
the screen and Lydia will walk via the
stairs , the platform and then stand in front of the green bed at the top of the
garden stairs.( in the Steam version Lydia walks further to the place where she
found the doll)
the Storage Cellars again through the door. Go down the top stairs via the
bottom right corner and double click in the corner at the top center of your
screen. Go down the second staircase and click on the 3rd stairs, at the bottom
left of your screen. Lydia is again at the top of the 3rd stage.
In Chapter 2 you went in the front arch, where the box stands, down the next stairs. You are not going to do that now. Walk to the back arch. You have to go through 2 times to get there.
In the back wall you see a "Blue
Eye" and under the "eye" you see 3 blue letters. Zoom in on that.
You are in the:
The "Eye" is the lock of the passage to the Wine Cellar and you have to open it now. You see the letters m, s, k underneath. Hula .... on the parchment that you found in the Administrator's Office there were also 4 Blue Letters? And there should be 6 letters.
the parchment are the letters: m, b,?, f,?,
x. So you search for the letters that belong to the place of the 2
question marks. So you search for a combination of 6 letters, but you already
know m, b, f and x.
you click on the m, s or k with your gear, 3 different letters will appear each
time and you can click on them again to bring out 3 other letters. There are
many combinations possible. Play it here and make sure that the letters m, s, k
are on the wall again. This is best done by zooming out of the puzzle and then
zooming in on it again. If you have the letters m, s, k on the wall again you
solve this puzzle in the following steps:
You have now opened the secret passage to the wine cellar. Step through the passage for a moment and see that you have ended up at the cooking pot in the bottom wine cellar.
Step right back through the passage.
You have found the wine barrels of Mustavio and you have now opened the
passage between the storage cellars and the wine cellars. So Mustavio can now
pick up his wine barrels without any problem. Before we tell him that, we will
first make a bridge over which Mustavio can cross the river with his trade. You
now have to go back outside to the Weight Puzzle at the big water wheel.
see the corner behind the barrels and there are leaves on the floor. Zoom in on
that. They are Taxes leaves and you need them for the metamorphosis potion.
Bridge for Mustavio:
Continue through the
gate and the stairs to the outer bridge behind the large water wheel. Then go to
the left and to the wall with the 2 niches where the weights hang from the

is scared again and runs away and Lydia now gets her 3rd vision
We see the
Ent tree. The Ent tree is the talking and walking tree you
read about in the last page of the notebook. We see Celeste, now as a teenager,
and she has a portrait of her mother. Mother and daughter are looks-alike of
each other. Then we see Celeste and Lydia, as a little girl, at the grave of
Celeste's mother. Nathaniel is also there and slowly but surely you now realize
what a heart-moist man Nathaniel is.
the vision, Lydia is standing in a clearing in the forest. Zak has disappeared.
Behind Lydia is the Entree. You can go to the Ent tree and then click on it with
your question mark. The Ent tree will not talk but if you follow the talk options
then you know that Lydia must use Celeste's music pendant on the Ent tree to
bring the tree to life. But then Lydia must first repair the hanger and she
needs new parts.
back from the Ent tree screen through the middle below and Lydia is back on the
open spot. Now go a screen to the left via the arrow that you just above the
green plus button and ..... Lydia comes to a tree trunk that lies over a ditch. Zak
is hidden behind a tree and there is a little conversation between Lydia
on the tree trunk and Lydia comes to stand right in front of it. Now cross the
bridge, via the arrow on the right and then follow the forest path to the right
and after 2 or 3 screens Lydia is back at the river and at the direction
indicator. So at the place where she had her 3rd vision. Walk to the pole.
Your screen changed. Lydia and Zak are now at the pole and you see that there is an island in the river. Zoom in on the pole now.
There is a strange green jut on
the pole. It is a piece of a Creeper. Click on it with your gears and ........
see what happens.
The Creeper on the pole grows and grows and .......grows to a beautiful Creeper bridge over the river. So cross the bridge, through the bottom right and you're back at Mustavio.
Talk to Mustavio and say,
"I have the wine barrels you
asked for. Mustavio!". Lydia explains how Mustavio can get his wine barrels
and as a reward for all her hard work she now gets the 2 Figures for the Minotaurus
Labyrinth game. Close the inventory screen and notice that you can no
longer talk to Mustavio.
Now that you've got the 2 figurines of Mustavio you can play the Minotaurus Labyrinth game. So go back to the forecourt of the Academy. So follow the route through the forest through the middle below. Do not go back over the Creeper bridge. Then enter the Central Hall again via the gigantic front gate and go back to the Right Central Staircase.
Climb the 3 stairs again and then follow the
route from the Book Chest hallway back to the Bay window and zoom in on the
table where the Minotaurus Labyrinth game is located.
The Minotaurus Labyrinth:
The 2 figures
are of course placed on the game board.
So there are 64
Here is the solution:
It is the Seed for the Nigilis Tree that you
must now plant and grow. Lydia takes the Seed ball automatically and talks about
it with Zak.
