Other points of interest[edit]


  1. The south-east indoor area has a C-shaped staircase which has a secret door on the south wall of its south-west corner (marked with a different texture). It leads to six armor bonuses, a medikit, and a box of shotgun shells. (sector 409)
  2. The south-east indoor area has a room in its north-west containing two boxes of shotgun shells on a bed. There is a secret door to the north of this bed leading to a box of bullets, a box of shotgun shells, a computer area map and a soul sphere. On medium and hard skills there is also a skeleton captain. (sector 343)
  3. On approaching the red key, you will teleport to a cage. Teleport again to reach a small room. There is a secret door on the north wall here leading to a crossbow and two arrows. (sector 272)
  4. The back wall of the red key area is a secret door leading to two clips, a torch, some gunpowder, and (on hard skill) two invisible skeletons. (sector 486)
  5. North of the exit is an area with an armor. The north-west of this area has a fireplace. Pressing the visible fire section causes the wall to lower, allowing access to the fireplace, where there is an four-legged soldier, a box of shotgun shells, and a soul sphere. Note that the secret sector itself is very narrow. (sector 514)
