I guess everyone else has had no trouble figuring this one out since I'm the first to post, but I need a hint!

Seriously, I haven't been able to do anything but read the nice introduction and pick up some tools and then stand around with a confused look on my face.

I had some trouble with this one too. Without giving too much away, you need to be fairly specific about what you want to do and which tool you want to use, and then just be persistent.

I've got it now. :) I had the general idea already, I just wasn't being specific enough.

Edit: ran into a few more problems, but I just now realized it's not password protected...

Some hints, in case anyone wants it, now that the deadline is so close:


Items needed: (highlight here) [color=white]Trowel, hammer, twine, spikes

What to do first: Dig with the trowel, x3

What to do in the underground chamber:move the rocks
and: hit the bricks with the hammer
and: dig in the depression

What to do in the tunnel:Dig in the dark patch to reveal air shaft (so you don't die later)

What to do in the carved chamber: dig under the stone
and: put stakes behind the stone
and: put twine around the stone
and: pull twine
