Connections and "true" ending will be in a separate guide

Award
The Abbey
Levers
From the first pannel you should now know which position refers to which symbol
Solution:

Levers with a Friend
Simply go forward and figure out which symbol is about you and which symbol is about your new friend

Enter the Abbey
A new friend appears in the south east of the area

Solution:
The Frontier
Where to start?
There is a hole at the right of the entrance:

Build a bridge
You need a tool
There is a spear in the previous room

Pass the guards
Here I won't explain how to precisely move in each room as it's linked to timing and a bit of skill. Just try some steps and from trial and error you should reach your goals.
In this area:

you need to get this box in order to make a bigger wall to hide in the elevator platform:

Disguise
The right disguise is sword / long helmet / armbands
From there you can move much more easily in the fortress, congrats!

The Observatory
Memorize the shape here:

As the title say in this area simply follow the orders:

Where is the light?
In the left of the room you should be able to pick up the lignt to use it downstairs:

This pillar can rotate:

and this is your goal position:

Treasure room
Which object to choose?
Remember the shape of the lens in the observatory?
You must pick the lens in the 2nd lign / 2nd column:

You can pick fruits in the trees around:

Go downstairs
Where does this woman go?

The right tool
You must pick the hammer:

The mill
Simply follow the path in order to get the torch

You know where to put this torch if you explored well, there is a door on the west of the area with the shape of the torch in it

Mini games
First game is Flappy Bird so maintain the button to make the bird fly through the holes
Second game is a "find the intruder" game, if you hit the grey blue face each round you should be able to fill the gauge at the top, it may take some time as it's a rapid game but eventually you'll get your token

Look at the symbol on the token
It's your entrance to the theater!

The theater
you got the token to enter from the mini games at the east of the area

The sewers
You have to reach this room under the agora:

There you have to pick something which fell in the sewers
It's a compass:

The "labyrinth"
Remember the theater play? and the book with directions in it?
You must follow west, north, east, south, west
In order to accomplish this at each step you should put the red arrow of the compass on the north like this, and then go the direction you want:
The Galleries
The monster
The monster seems to dislike light
Use the levers in the level to bring some light

Elevator machine
What are theses stickers for?

Here is the right order:

The restaurant
At what time do we eat?
There is a clock on the left[/spoiler] look at it closely
You have to wait for the clock to be on a fork symbol and follow the scientists inside:

There you'll be able to use this machine to melt the cutlery:

Here is how it works:

Yeah you get silver!
You can also get gold from a room nearby:

Where can you use these "access" cards?
It can be used in the terminals next to doors, with a red light above and a card slot

Lighter
After using your punched cards you save a scientist, there you can find a lighter:

Did you notice a candle before?
You can use the lighter here:

Door code
The code can be found in the library:

It's cystercian system and here is the answer:

Forge the key
Behind the door code you find a "solution":

Zoomed version:

As mentionned before this area use cystercian system for numbers, so the number at the top left is the thousands digit, the top right is the hundreds digit, the bottom left is the tens digit and the bottom right is the ones digit, leading to this:

You now need to go to the forge room and adjust the weights accordingly to these values, here are the 3 answers:

Small correction, the Lens is used in The Church , not the Abbey.

Hi, thank you so much for your kind guide. It actually helped me a lot to complete this game even with less spolier!
Therefore, I want your permission for me to translate your guide in Korean. I will maintain you forms (spolier hidings) as well.
And I am plan to add you on my guide as a collaborator or link this original guide. If you prefer other methods for credit inform, tell me that way I'll follow.
Sincerely, yours.

Nice guide, not too spoilery!

Thanks!

@ujif I'm going to assume that you understand how to decode the numbers in the system so you can write it in our decimal notation. If you don't then just say and I'll explain.

The weights on the bottom shelf are multiples of 100 (which you can see because the numeral glyph is in the top right which signifies how many hundreds in the number). There are two 500 weights a 200 weight and a 100 weight. So you can make 1400 by adding all of those weights to the scale. You can make 800 by adding one 500 one 200 and one 100.

The top shelf has 4 weights that are 10 (you can tell because they say 1 in the tens spot) some 1s and a 5. I think you can probably work out how to make the weight using those. But I can explain more if needed.

I hope that helps!

Puzzle in which the Cistercian system is used is a very difficult one. I still don't understand how the "weigh" answer works lmao.
The Sojourner Sep 8, 2023 @ 9:13pm
Nice guide! Though I thought I'd elaborate on some things:

For the Church (Abbey) door puzzle, there's a little card game elsewhere that can help you deduce the hierarchy.

There are a few more areas for slipping past the Warriors, before what you first show, and it's not just timing and skill. For the first, just follow in their footsteps and try to remain hidden. For the second, you need to first use the marching army as cover. Then you need to use the gong so you can slip past to the other side, all while hiding carefully. Finally, wait until the army is marching through the doors. The last area is straightforward, though you should pause anyway so you can learn more of the language. I'd also suggest you outline a path in the last (large) stealth area, before you reach the Armory, as it's not entirely obvious, and some Warriors can spot you outside of your FOV (!).
