er...have pulled it a lot. Should I keep focusing on the same pillar I found the symbols? I see what looks like a door behind some kind of tram thingee...and I can see a pedestal on one side of that pillar. Keep pulling the lever and the switch, huh? Sigh...

How do I open the 2nd locked gate to get on Direbo to get to Todelmer Island? I can get the first one open but there is no way I can see to open the second one.

KateVa,

A bigger nudge...

Actually, you need only pull it once when the top switch is in the right position. The goal is to get the cable wheel up top to rotate to allow you a view of a second remote pillar from the telescope (the second pillar is to the left of the one with the three symbols) that is blocked by the big wheel. It allows an important view of something.

Dutch,

The only way to the right "island" on Direbo to access Todelmer is to go back to the Great Shaft. There are four link books there that allow access to the different "islands" you see on Direbo. When you get to Direbo, unlock the bridge gates and eventually you'll have free access across them mear the end of the game.

That's what I would like to know Kate I could ask him to run over to the 3rd pillar and copy the symbol and bring it back to me!!!!!. I KNOW I have set the big telescope to the right coordinates but I still cant see the darn 3rd pillar slate through the brackets. Can anyone describe what the symbol for the 3rd pillar looks like I have tried for hours and still cant get it to work. Thanks DG. Thanks for any help given. thanks thanks thanks thanks

Do Bahro sleep after a hard first age?
I cannot get a Bahro to pick up the slate with the upside down birthday decoration. I'll admit to being the world's worst artist, but this is getting frustrating. What am I missing...there's three of them, right? one long, two short?

Dutch, I can email you a sketch if you want. Describing it is hit or miss. Let me know.

Bishop, the Bahro will pick up the slate whether you have the symbol right or not. You must give it more space (i.e., back away farther). If he still doesn't recognize the symbol, erase and try again. By the way, I cannot imagine which symbol you mean when you say "upside down birthday cake".

Dadguy-I qualify for the Dumb Blonde Award on this one. I see a pillar with a pedestal (three rings attached to a fourth) and a telescope...but I don't seem to see much of anything change from my rooftop scope after I pull the lever across the "bridge" and pull down the handle. The top lever has only two positions...far right and far left. Is that correct???

KateVa,

Yes, the lever to the right pulls the tram toward you when you click the switch, and the lever to the left pushes it away from you.

But the important part is that when you started this Age, the gear up on the roof was blocking your view of that pedestal on the far left pillar. If you can now see the pedestal just over top of that gear, you have what you need to get to it!

I presume you know what to do to get to that pedestal now, right?

ROFL! Yes, TY Dadguy...I was so intent on figuring out how to get the tram thingee across, I missed the obvious. Chalk it up to a White-haired moment!

The 3rd Bahro symbol was a toughie to find. But since im on the other end now, I cant find anything else :\

This age is a really tough one..

@Dadguy: He means the rain symbol wink


EDIT: [blip] hard to find those 2 missing co-ordinates. Looks like its a fine toothbrush time with those telescopes O_o

Guess I got better with my scopes, since I found the third pedestal without too much trouble. Now, am trying to figure out how to get into that cable car thing. Door on third pedestal locked..and can't jump down to platform. I had hoped the lever on the first platform would help but no go. Is the map on the wall supposed to be an aid for this? Other than showing a green line...

Kate cry

I got that symbol, and I moved the cable car, but I cant get power to that area. Ive set the levers right im sure, but no power frown

You have to set the lever on the tram controls, the upper to the left and keep pulling down till it wont go anymore, and then goto the 3rd pillar and you should be able to get inside.

But meh, still cant get the power going :\


EDIT: Hurrah got power going, was very very pernickerty lol

KateVa,

You'll have to move the tram all the way back to the LEFT (i.e., top lever to the left, then pull the swithc until it won't go any farther). Then you'll get into the tram from the remote pillar side.

Waaah!!! What did you do to finish it? I have three settings for the scope machines...and no clue what to do next. I assumed that the numbers for the third scope would bring something new..but I have failed to find it. Should I be at that scope looking for a final set of numbers for the broken scope?

(And TY guys for getting me on the cable car!)

Did you not notice a new symbol for our magical buddies? smile

Ok what to do is this.

Set the Telescopes. Then use the tablet with the new symbol you found (in the area you climbed onto the cable car).

This shifts the planets around. Keep watching on the telescope screen that has the planet on it, and use full magnification, after if nothing is shown, use the tablet again. Keep going till something happens smile
