Level Four

The fourth level of the Castle Wulf was the residential floor of the King. There are bedrooms, kitchens and libraries. Much of it has become very bizarre since the fall of the king and a host of demons have taken up residence here at Dianos's bidding. The aim of the level is to get 4 gold keys which will allow you to reach level 5.
The first section involves the old bedrooms of King Wulf and the secret chambers his wife used while carrying on an affair with Lord Carolus. The objective of this section is simply to get past it. In the next section, the old Kitchens, the task is to break open a stone ball, this is done using a combination of objects and puzzles and will reward you with your first Gold key.

Section 3 is a strange collection of mental puzzles and gambling. This is where Wulf and Dianos would be found relaxing. One of the Gold keys is easily attained here, however there are a number of diversionary quests that should keep you occupied for some time. The final section is the old Libraries of the Court. The main task is to rebuild the Planetarium, to do this you must find 5 planets.

A final note on the demons. These ungodly creatures must firstly be made vulnerable to attack. If there is a red circle in front of them you must drop a candle within it. If there is no red circle cast a dispel evil spell.
