I am here again begging for help. I know what and who the text is refering to, I know where to find it but I have no idea what I am looking at. I have even tried the book that contains his name. Zooming in doesn't help although if you invert the colours the 'thing' disappears.

Fear not, you are not alone. Not least because 4 others are similarly troubled at the moment.

You are nearly there, you just need to think a little bit more at exactly what you are looking at.

I feel exactly like Gordon felt in his post above. And I can't work out what, if anything, the image is for... Love the puzzles anyway though, despite constant stuckness!

You will use the image once you have worked out what the text is referring to. From your guesses so far, you are heading vaguely the right way...

Concentrate more on the text...

Glad you are enjoying the puzzles, stuckness is what it is all about!

Well, stuckness is certainly what this level is all about, for me at least! I don't think I've made even an inch of progress on it all day. I'm sure I'll kick myself when I get it. Eventually... Rolling Eyes

If you have worked out what the text is about, you are part way there.
If you look at the image in the puzzle, you have the other part.

All you really need to do is put the two together...

I think it's working out what, specifically, the text is about that is my problem. I understand a few of the references, but the thing that automatically springs to mind is apparently only vaguely in the right direction, from the post above. And a few of the lines (eg the wailing and shouting) I haven't used at all. Which makes me think that I'm somehow missing the point...

Go back to your last guess and work from there...you've worked out all the text needs to tell you...

Finally got it, thanks! I actually worked out what I wanted ages ago, but my answer wasn't specific enough and so thought I was doing something wrong. I'm so annoyed with me!

I feel like i'm at the end of the race a foot from the finish line but i'm out of energy to make it across. In other words I'm stuck but i'm pretty sure i have most of the details except the room 13 i tried to find it but i think the "thing" was moved to a different room and i'm not sure what the answer should be?

Still in room 13 at time of posting.

PM me with your thinking so far and I will confirm everything is in the right place.

Not sure where to go with what I have. I'm pretty sure I know what the poem is referring to but I'm not sure how I'm supposed to use that with the picture.

Aaaagggghhhh. I am pretty sure that I've figured out the poem. I've even done a virtual tour. I know which thing it is about and where it is. What I cant figure out it how Bimbogami thinks this has anything to do with the image in the clue. Confused

I thought I was doing a bit better recently too Crying or Very sad

Is there any help out there for a mystified puzzler Question
