Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Head into the cave at the start and take a left at the fork. Look towards the right to find a white pentagram wall with a candle on it. Use it to open a door nearby where you can get a backpack. (sector 439)
  2. After the lift past the blue door, from the plasma gun, go south to the red stairs. Drop to your right, but do not take the teleporter. Press on the brown wall to lower it, and take the lift up for a soul sphere. (sector 354)
