Special objects


  • Essence of Cunning
  • Essence of Magic
  • Essence of Constitution (open the coffin in the room with A Maiden in Distress)


  • The skeletons here typically rise from the corpses on the ground or emerge from coffins. This is triggered by proximity. However, if they can detect no characters (e.g., a single Rogue under Stealth entered the room), then some will not activate. However, the minimap may still show all skeletons -- even those not activated and which therefore cannot be interacted with.
