Talk:Puzzle item


Everything on one page[edit]

Since there isn't much to say about the majority of these artifacts, would it not be better to have all the descriptions on this page, as with Hexen keys? If so, I'll transfer the information from the two existing pages (Flame Mask and Heart of D'Sparil) and write a short description for the rest. Stubbsy 16:43, 14 August 2008 (UTC)

I agree that the content of Flame Mask and Heart of D'Sparil should be moved here. I attempted to write a description for the rest of the puzzles that require special items. Opinions? --Jartapran 23:41, 1 January 2012 (UTC)

Yorick's Skull[edit]


I checked HEXENBETA.WAD [1] and its entries STWNA0, ARTISKLL and ASKUA0. Judging by them, an early idea for the puzzle really seems to have been entirely from Hamlet. However, only Yorick's name survived in the ultimate puzzle, which, undeniably, ended up being easier to solve than the one in the beta version.

In addition, in HEXEN.WAD, the lump STTWA0 is the statue (STWNA0 in the beta version) with the human's skull in its hand. It is used as a decoration, and is found at least in the Forsaken Outpost. --Jartapran 15:31, 17 January 2014 (UTC)
