Hi y'all,

Stuck here, missing the obvious, I guess.

I can get the guard to help me open the door and blow the horn. Great.

Soldier comes for help, but will never stand still on the plate long enough to let me go to the cracked orb.

The other solution would be to wait for the brain to be killed by the soldier and leave the plate just in time to step on the door and exit the room. I'm one move short for that, however. Is there a way to somehow force extra sword turning?

Yeah, this room's a bit awkward.

What you have to do is get the guard and soldier in a repeating pattern where neither of them kills the other, and do that in such a way that they hit the pressure plate at some point during the "dance".

I can check my demo for details if you need more help, but I pretty much got it by just messing around until that happened.

Let's dance, then. Will give it a try, but another day.

Tnx so far.

As I recall, all you really have to do is start dancing with the guard yourself first and everything pretty much works itself out if you get out of the way when it's obviously time for the soldier to step in.
