I'm new here either and need same help. Don't know/understand the table puzzle. And also having trouble with another puzzle:
Click to reveal..
there is a time you have to paint a canvas for the arch-mage. Do I really need to paint it, exactly? Or there is another way? Because I’m a terrible painter, and every time I show the canvas that I paint with the grapes and bottle of wine to him, he tells me that it’s no good.
Help, please!.

OK I solved the table puzzle with the help of my girlfriend who has seen similar puzzles before. Let's see if I can solve the puzzle of how to post hints. :)
Click to reveal..
What I wasn't getting is that the symbols around the table in some cases match the points of the star. Those are the ones you have to 'turn on' and from there it's mostly trial and error. Let me know if you need more help.


I can't help with your second part because I'm still looking for materials :)

You read the piece of paper, right?

- The right symbol you get from Mary. Of course, only one symbol makes any sense even if you don't know the answer.

- The middle symbol comes from the mirror. The three missing words are probably "on the mirror."

- I got the left symbol just by scrolling through the options after setting the other two symbols correctly.

I'm currently stuck in Chapter 3 trying (I think) to clean a window.

If you haven't figured out how to polish the ice Petra may have something that would help.

I'm actually a little farther along than that. I'm an intern on the submarine, and I can't figure out what to do next. I can't pull the lever, I can't clean the window, and I can't get Critter on board.

There's something Nate refuses to do, so you have to use Critter instead.

From inside the engine room your next step is to
Click to reveal..
clean the porthole
.

More explicit solution:
Click to reveal..
Use Cleaning Solvent and Newspaper - you get the newspaper from the evil leader's room and if you've gotten this far you should already have the solvent. I forget where I picked it up but I used the label off the can to get the brandy.

You have to create an opening. This is actually the puzzle the hint I gave before applies to.

I'm still confused about where I'm stuck. I have a canister of water, and it and the newspaper don't do anything useful. I don't see any cleaning supplies anywhere.

I should point out I'm playing on Normal so that might be the difference, but here goes, re: engine room

Click to reveal..
I had a canister of cleaning fluid and a bottle of water. I put the canister in the hole in the ice where the critter was fishing in an earlier chapter (where the Mary was wrecked), and the label came off. I then stuck that label onto the bottle of water. Since it was a yellow label (I guess?) Laylah didn't notice when I swapped the bottle of water for the bottle of brandy in the hideout.

That left me with an unlabeled canister of cleaning fluid.

And I can't for the life of me remember where I originally picked that up, either. Sorry I can't be more help.

I figured it out. It turns out this is one of the places where Normal differs from Hard:

Click to reveal..
To clean the porthole on Hard, you have to re-swap the brandy bottle to get back the original bottle. Then when you examine the bottle, you notice it has fermented apple juice inside, and it's powerful enough to cut through the grime on the porthole (perhaps with the help of the newspaper, but I'd already used newspaper on the porthole several times).
