  1. I’m not sure where I went wrong. On day 13 when asked for Trimblehuff, I don’t have the entry in my book. The hint just says “I’m not sure what to do”. I do have the plant, after seeing what it looks like here. I don’t know how I missed getting the book entry for it.

  2. Epilogue for me:
    A card with a triangle, some circles, and an X. Line it up on the map with Whitbarrow mountain for the triangle. X marks N28 [N27 for me, NOT N28] for two new plants.
    Also, the Black Veil Monastery is at i12 for me, not l12.

    hope this helps!

  3. i figured out the widow’s woe! you’ll be given a box with a flower and a keyhole in the centre. you have to open it with clavilium. inside, there’s a few pieces of paper, with one of them talking about “follow the duddon tributary to its source”. you have to go to L13 and that’s where you get widow’s woe. not sure why the guide is missing this crucial info!

  4. i have no idea how, but i completely missed widow’s woe! if anyone knows where to find it, please let me know ? also, the location for the source of river esk is actually C14, not C15 as listed in this guide!

    • Seems to be a Day 6 bug, where you’re supposed to collect Eyebright but the collect button doesn’t work. Going back and re-playing Day 5 seemed to fix it for me.

      Specifically, I had another problem on Day 5 that seemingly had to be fixed for Day 6 to work. The card I got overnight (about the abbey and the castle) had randomly disappeared the first time then showed up the next day. When I re-did Day 5, the card showed up and I made sure to do it right away, then everything worked. I also remember originally on Day 6 the overnight card about the Old Man didn’t dissolve the first time I used it. The second time through, it did, then everything worked from there.
