You don't need to start over.
This is a very non linear game. You can do anything and go anywhere you want to.
That standing stone can appear anywhere he-it wants too also. So be prepared. eek
As for going forward - just go somewhere else and check other places. Later, you can come back and see if it is still there. Turn around and go back to the path. Go to the service station or go left of the main road to the west side of town.

MaG Hi I am at the same place as deliterman and hope I understand the advise. Can I avoid the stone and go my merry way. Go to other areas and tasks and then return to the Sentery Stone area. Will it be gone so I may continue on the path that time???? I have seen enough vegetation to last me awhile. Ha. I would appreciate any clarification. Jim

The stone apparently moves around, Jim--I've been running into it all over the place. So just go to another area, work on some other puzzle, and then try back again... wave

Hi Jim,

Yes - turn around from the 'hot rock' as Sue calls it and check other places; do other puzzles, talk to Ben; go west of town where there are puzzles to do and clues to pick up.
Not a back to nature calling for you, eh... laugh

Deliterman have you read everything that concerns the blessing? Did you find the sheet music? Be sure that you light the blue candle first and then the brown one. I think the "brown" candle you need to light is more toward the lower center of the set of candles.
Good luck

Hi guys,

I've finally gotten around to the four stones to the left of the lighted path and no "hot rock" is standing my way. The WT says to look close at the pile of soil left of the hanging strainer frame. Derned if I can find a pile of soil or anything that looks like a strainer frame. I don't even know what a strainer frame is! Maybe Marita could be a little more specific?

Love yez,

Go forward pass the 4 stones to the Soil Heap area. You will see a strainer frame at right side of the path - you'll recognize it when you see it.

I'm glad you figured it out Deliterman! I thought it was a wonderful game. I had a blast playing it and the cracking of the leaves as I was walking through the wooded areas completely creeped me out.

Hi guys,

I'm at the seven stones and trying to make the appropriate offerings to each but lost track of what the different offerings are in the row of cups at the top of inventory. Can someone tell me what they are? From left to right? This game identifies nothing in inventory. Also, is there any way short of going to the last save, that this puzzle can be reset?

Please and thankyou,

Jerry I thought the cursor near the egg cups would tell you what was in them.
If not, the order to place them in is fish, oil, plant, barley,blessed water, fruit juice and salt. I don't remember how they are arranged in inventory but the colors or textures of the ingredients should help you arrange them.
The puzzle can not be reset. If you put an incorrect offering on a stone, you will know immediately and will go back to a prior area before you started placing them.

In OPTIONS you can turn on the Identification of the Inventory. laugh
