When the world of magic and the world of logic combine you can expect dangerous results, but a true adventurer would cherish such things... wouldn't they?

He will ask you to convice his builders that they should keep building the tower because it is not weird.

Talk to Bonafido, who is lying down near a tree.

Ask him if you can go inside the tower, and he will tell you that you are not dressed properly, and that you should look like a builder.

Gathering Builders Clothes

You will now have to speak to the builders to get some clothes.

  • No Fingers - Talk to him, and then pickpocket him to get boots.
  • .The Guns - Give him a beer for his shirt.

How do you whistle?

Whistle for attention.

What's a good sign that you need to replace your trousers?

After you have answered these questions, he will let you into the tower.

Fixing the Tower

Head into the tower. You will have to search the crates for supplies. You need:

  • 4 Coloured Balls
  • 3 Metal Sheets
  • 4 Valve Wheels
  • 6 Rivets
  • 4 Pipes
  • 5 Pipe Rings
  • 5 Metal Bars
  • 4 Binding Fluids

After you have got your supplies, head upstairs and you will see the pressure machine. Make sure you have 4 Coloured Balls, 3 Metal Sheets, and 4 Valve Wheels, and choose to fix the machine.

After you have fixed it, you will have to calibarate it. Do this by filling the leaks with the Coloured Balls. You have to turn the valves left and right until the ball falls into the hole, then turn the valve until the water reaches the top.

Pipe Number Method
2 Pull down the left lever, and then turn the second valve left twice. Turn it right until the pipe is filled with water.
4 Pull down the right lever, and turn the fourth valve right twice, and then left once. Turn it right until the pipe is filled with water.
3 Lift the right lever back up, and turn the third valve right twice and then left once. Turn it right until the pipe is filled with water.
1 Lift up the left lever and turn the first valve left twice. Turn it right until the pipe is filled with water.

Now climb upstairs, and make sure you have 6 Rivets, 4 Pipes, and 5 Pipe Rings, and fix the Pipe Machine.

After you have fixed the machine, you will have to make the pipes match up. Do this making the pipes line up so water can pass through.

Now climb upstairs again to the third floor, and make sure you have 5 Metal Bars and 4 Binding Fluids, and fix the cage.

Once you have fixed the cage, you have select the bar sizes that will fit inside of the purple spaces. The way to solve this is to guess the size with trial and error.

Once you have fixed it, you will get a message telling you that the tower is now in order.

The Tower is in Order!

Go talk to Effigy, and he will ask you to meet him at the top of the tower.

You will now see a cutscene of a beast being summoned into the cage. The beast will get angry, and everyone will flee.

Go back to Effigy and he will ask you to go and talk to the Creature.

Head back up to the top of the tower and talk to the Creature. It will tell you that is confused and you will have to answer 7 questions to make it see through either magic or logic.
