There seems to be some bug here. If you go up you enter the chapel which is the location you saw on
the print. If you drop the sapphire and the ruby (the bluish haze and the reddish hue you saw on the
print), the sword excaliber should rise from the granite and fall to the ground. However this
doesn't happen as the sword Excaliber is already in the location of the lake at the beginning
of the game and you loose the ruby and sapphire by doing this which you both need for their points.
So I guess you just have to skip this. 

E, N, N, NW, D, D, SE, S, S, SW, SE, SW, SE, S, S, W, DROP ALL (you drop all through the opening in
the wall), E, N, N, NW, NE, NW, NE, N, N, NW, U, U, SE, S, S, E, U, SW (you find all the objects you
threw through the opening in the bakery), GET ALL, D (you return to the location with the clock).

Back to the mansion
N, D, D, PUSH LEVER, S, S, SW, SW, SW, GET ALL, U, U, U, W, D, E, E, GET EXCALIBUR, THROW EXCALIBUR
(into the lake).


You have 336 out of 411 points.




Actions which are not needed to solve the game:
-If you EXAMINE SHELVES in the library you find a book on photography for beginners, but you do not
need it. You can OPEN BOOK and READ BOOK.
-If you OPEN DOOR in the games room you can enter the cupboard.
