All of the above can be done in any order as long as you have the prerequisites (item, spell). The remainder of the Walkthrough must be done in this order:

    • Get 2nd note from tavern (earlier).
    • Spy on brigands at archery range from the side (not bottom) entrance.
    • Throw dagger at remaining brigand.
    • Walk around until you receive 2 points (not south).
    • Walk to other archery range entrance (bottom) and get key off of the brigand.
    • Go to area with Antwerp.
    • Search rocks for keyhole (Antwerp will bounce like crazy).
    • Use key.
    • Before entering, say secret word (Hiden Goseke).
    • Walk through maze to bottom right, SAVE.
