Grandad - as Meph says lighting the fire should get you a bit further but you can also use one of your items on the happy gargoyle - have you "examined" the books properly as they give you good clues.

Meph - you need to use the miracle of the feast on the stone but you also need the item you want to multiply...

Meanwhile I seem to be getting nowhere fast on level 2, I have only solved the conflict witch and a couple of tarot cards (hanged man and magician) and don't seem to be able to unlock anymore areas. I was confident that the tins on the string went on the crystal of noise but apparently not!!

Addicted - Think what you used to use 2 tins on a string for as a child - when you find the correct place, it will be obvious where to use them. Similarly there will be an logical thing to use on the crystal of noise

Thanks for that (I can't wait to use them now!) - my problem is that I don't seem to be able to open any new areas and I can't get past the trap in the ground to get through to the other side of the path. I only have the crystal of noise and the mystical rings of saturn open to me at the moment...

I am (hopefully) near the end of the level, and I havent found a way to disable the traps yet, but eventually you will be able to get around that one, so dont worry about it - i think you must be missing some objects somewhere - unfortunately, this level is so large and so many items that i cant remember what comes next, sorry - but i do remember that you can solve the crystal of noise early on

I've got the flower, cnd badge, bird of prey, needle, vow, matches, wax, raw meat, prayer and 8 books. I've literally gone round dropping/using every item on the monk, hungry man, the baker, father, son, holy, soldier, immaculate conception shrines, the 3 gargoyles and every bleedin' drain ...and shaken every bush another time, just in case. The flour has gone into the baker's shrine and the logs are on the fire ...and have used blue, yellow, brown, red and purple keys. :v2_dizzy_mad:
You need to read the books closely as one item you have can be used on a gargoyle

sounds like you need to get into the alchemists hut - there is something near the mystics hut which will help

find a stone you have previously used, that looks like what you are trying to do (any ideas?). use it down under.

that's quite funny actually. As you can actually use it anywhere. You don't need to use it anywhere in the conventional sense of the word - it will light if you use it, no matter where you are in the level. ;)
