Hello,
I figure those six valves on the 6 stuctures re-direct steam in different directions,but I cant figure out how to power up the selector buttons on the 2 large main pipes.I dont see a source of power anywhere.Can someone give me a hint.

Geo, you should have gotten a symbol for "heat" earlier--that might have something to do with all this....

You all are way out ahead of me. I just barely got the ice cracking.

I've been puttering about in the Great Shaft. Nice to get to know more about what's going on with Yeesha.

Geo,

SPOILERS...

You can leave the slate on the podium any time you need to climb something. When on the podium, the Bahro won't come and take it away.

Did you try the heat solution? It has a "thawing" effect on switches...

So I dont have to get the slate near the hut podium? I can just draw anywhere,like the cave,and leave it there?

Geo, if you notice the podiums, once you've marked the slate with the sign on that podium, it shows up on all of them, and all you have to do to go to one is to click on the sign on whichever podium you are near. So you can get to the one near the hut just by drawing the sign on it to the slate.

Does that make any sense... think

Phew! I have been going nuts climbing back to the place I THINK I should put the slate with the symbol I THINK is appropriate..but nothing is happening. Assuming a thaw comes from nature, where on earth should I try to put the slate???

Kate(tearing out hair trying to control this slate...)

KateVa,

Spoiler!


If you have the correct symbol, the Bahro must come to read it (i.e., drop the slate and back away) and bring the warmth. After he does, pick up the slate again in case you need to make it warm again.

TY Dadguy. Gotta tell you this poor Bahro is getting really tired of me right now. He stopped just scratching his head at me, and screamed. I have made interesting fog and spurts of steam in several places, so I guess I have the right symbol. Question still is, just where does this slate go! Tried the end of the pipes, the "button" spot on the two big pipes, even near the place I see the drawing (that was a great one to watch) but all of them seem to have no effect on the buttons and swiches. Perhaps I have missed something else..or is this timed?

Ok, I drew the symbol and dropped the plate.He looked at it threw up his hands as if he finally got it and there was a flash of light.I went to the bridge and all kinds of steam was coming up ahead.Good I thought,but I could not cross the bridge.About a minute later the steam stopped and I was able to cross the bridge.When I went to the switches nothing had changed.No power.I am getting frustrated.A game is no fun when you get frustrated.

edit- I think kateva and I are having the same problem.Also I think you assume we know more than we do about what to do.We need a push not a hint.

Geo! Great news! I have been carrying the slate all over and dropping it in all the likely places I could find. One of them, dropping it by the frozen "grid" (the pipes in the pond) in the middle, has popped up the buttons on the big pipe on the left!!! Onward!!!

I cannot get the slate in my possesion from any pedistal other than the one in the cave.Of course I cant take it very far from there.If I leave it on the pedistal in the cave I cannot get it from any other pedistals.Perhaps I have a glitch.

Geo, when you mark a symbol on the slate and drop it, the bahro picks it up and puts it on the pedestal. At that point, the symbol you drew on the slate should be marked on the pedestal, and you can travel there from any other pedestal by clicking on that mark. If you have already gotten the steam to rise, you should have at least two symbols on the pedestals...
