Level 5 could probably use a more explicit hint about how to begin. I spent a lot of time searching for hidden switches before I finally got desperate enough to start pulling torches off the wall.

Two small bugs I've found my 2nd characther says something about the poison bolts and poison is mispelled

The second one was in the room where the warden stores things, I grabbedthe ornate key and stepped on the teleporter and the torch burning sound got crazy loud, I had to save and reload to get it to stop

Loving it so far

Ah my bad, I was balancing it with 4 items at 6 each, (missed the bladed gear sitting in my inventory)

@jkcarrier: (continued from previous comment)
What to do with those:
Riddles:
Place a RIDDLE scroll into the central column (in the room with those two texts). Anywhere. You can put 1 scroll and solve it, or you can place all of them first and then try solving them.
Alphabet:
Each riddle has a 5-letter answer, which you must either guess, or find. When you have a possible answer, put its letters into the 5 alcoves on southern wall, and if it's correct, the riddle will be solved. If you get horribly stuck, you should go to Floor 6 and find a chamber where goromorgs are moving behind grates. Find a secret switch and get past the goromorgs -- somewhere there you will find "possible answers".

@jkcarrier:
At the very beginning of the level, there was a message right in front of the staircase.
There are four RIDDLE scrolls in the level, and 16 ALPHABET scrolls. Explore and collect these -- each burning uggardian holds one letter of the alphabet, and each locked room holds 1 riddle. No secrets need to be unlocked to find everything, it's fairly simple.

Aggresive-russian: Fireballs punish you if you try to take any of the 5 original pieces away.
There are 5 pieces originally on the "scale" plates, and they must be on one of them when you press the button. You need to re-arrange them, not take any away.

1) If you take any away and press button --> Fireball punishment (and a message that says you're a thief, I believe)
2) If you fail to balance it and press button --> poison bolt
3) If you balance it and press button --> green light and a reward.


Further hint:
The total weight of the 5 pieces is 14 kg, so to balance it, you need 7 and 7 on each plate. Look at object description and use simple math.

Ok in the first maintence hall I balance the two plates (I assume you have to make the weight equal) but I get fireballed ehen I hit the switch what anm I doing wrong?

Wow I feel stupid, I just did the maze where you have to be worthy or be punished for forgiveness, I spent ages trying to walk through all the red light in every combination, until I finally realized I was susposed to avoid it!

The update fixed the crashing problem, thanks.
Level 5:
"Find the 16 letters held by the flaming guardians"
"Place a riddle on the central column"
I don't understand what either of these mean.

Issue fixed, sorry, stupid mistake in untested code.

I've also added some dialogue clues to Floor 2 and made sure the player visits the Maintenance Halls first.
