You will end up receiving an office key. Examine the locked tower door to the right and take the purple marble. Back out of the sacristy and use your office key on the left door. Take an angel (11/21) from the chair on the left, and also collect 2 weights, a purple marble, a green marble and a rope. Look at the table and find a purple marble and a coin. Read the Book of Dark Rituals here as well, and click on the Latin text to get a translation. Now examine the large cabinet along the back left wall. Insert your 4 purple marbles into the 4 slots. Now you need to turn all the marbles green. The trick is that the middle green marble will turn green alone if all others are already green. The shortest solution is as follows::

  • Large top right
  • Large bottom left
  • Small middle

You will end up receiving a green marble. Back out twice and examine the dark tile in the floor, then smash it with your hammer. Examine the new puzzle and insert your coin to activate it. Now you must solve this puzzle by turning off all the lights; the easiest way is just to click every light exactly once. You will receive another green marble when you are done. Turn left to see the mausoleum door. Attach your rope to the hook at the top, then place all 5 of your weights on the pedestal to the left and head through the door.

Pick up a green marble, then go left and pick up an axe. Go back and then right, and collect a torch from the left. Light your torch using one of the torches on the wall. Go back and now approach the grate straight ahead. Use your axe to break the lock, then go forward. Place your lit torch in the sconce on the right so you can see. Now collect the angel (12/21) from the pot on the floor. Also pick up the letter, cross key and another green marble. Go back and right, then approach the skeleton. Look at the box under its arm, and open this with your cross key - you will get a drawing and the final green marble. Now go back twice and left. Read the letter in your inventory and note the symbols at the top right. Now approach the puzzle and set the bird symbols to match those from the letter. You will receive a small key.

Return to the central part of the church and turn right, then look at the wall safe to the left of the office door. Use your small key on the padlock, then open the safe cover. Solve the puzzle by activating the appropriate boxes according to the numbers (the easiest way is to activate the entire right column, and then just work your way down activating the appropriate number in each row to make a flag symbol). You will get the tower key.

Enter the office through the door on the left. Look at the board up behind the desk and examine the 3 colored symbols. Back out of the office and go through the right door into the sacristy, then look at the door on the right and open it with your tower key. Approach the left cross, insert 4 green marbles, then click on them to turn them all blue. Approach the middle cross, insert 4 green marbles, then click on them to turn them all red. Finally approach the right cross, insert 4 green marbles, then click on them to turn them all yellow. Now examine the chest on the floor. Insert your 2 black pyramids on the corners, then examine the buttons. From their starting colors as shown below, press the buttons the number of times indicated by these numbers:


Take the spear from inside the chest. Leave the church and talk to Bertold.
