  1. In the rocket launcher room, press on the wall between the bookshelves to reveal a teleporter. Take it to get a megasphere and a box of rockets at the southeast end of the central courtyard. (sector 23)
  2. Open the left of the two blue doors, then go to the northern room with the steps and climb up to the west. In the next room, look south and shoot at the skull beyond the blue door, which will lower the column in the middle of the room you are in. The column contains a megaarmor. (sector 317)
  3. In the northern room with the steps, press on the side of the steps with the candle to lower two walls to the south. Go through them to get rockets, a stimpack, a box of rockets, a box of shotgun shells, and two boxes of ammo. (sector 319)
  4. Enter the building and head west, then northwest towards a brown face on the wall. Use it to find a megaarmor. (sector 831)

  6. After opening the hall leading to the balcony overlooking the blue key courtyard, press on the face north of the door in the hall to find a switch. After using it, open the door and take the teleporter at the southeast end to get a soul sphere. (sector 1230)
