Have you tried turning the light on in the room? Right after entering the room, turn towards your right and walk, hugging the wall. The lamp is higher up on the wall. My note says, R from D, F 1X, slight L - 1 step walk straight point slightly R. Unfortunately the lamp doesn't stay on long, you should be able to see enough to get to the ax, you can see the holes on each side of you. The way back is harder, I did not take notes, too busy trying not to fall in. It is a matter of aiming at the correct door and taking only one step at a time. After you get the axe, turn to the L, arrow pointing at the R door, Step 1X. Turn L some more, you will be pointing at a hole, L of the doors, step 1X only. Then turn R, pointing at the middle of the doors, go R towards the light, hugging the wall until you reach the exit. This last is from Tally Ho's w/t here on GB, he has screenshots to help, somehow I remember doing something else. Sorry I don't have any of my saves on the computer.
What kind of magic spell to use?
