You’ll find that one of the door indentations already contains a Lithograph Stone, but you’ll need to rummage around the room to pick up the other three stones in order to solve this puzzle.
- Stone 1: Lithographic Stone B — On the table by the puzzle door.
- Stone 2: Lithographic Stone C — On the stack of books by the door.
- Stone 3: Lithographic Stone D — On the display case in the corner of the room. Break the glass to get it.
Pick up each of these Lithography Stones and return to the door. Surprisingly, you insert the stones in a set order that you can’t choose. Only after they are initially placed can you move them to the correct positions.
Each stone for the lithography puzzle has two sides and can be turned over. Each stone also has a dark image and a light image of either a sword, helmet, shield, or armor. Also, it is important to note that each image on the stone is surrounded by either a square or hexagonal outline.
With that in mind, take a look at the inside of the indentations where you placed the stones. These communicate the symbols you need to match on each of the four sides.
For example, the top indentation is a shield with a square. The other three will give you more incomplete information, but the solutions are below:
- Left slot: Helm and hexagon
- Upper slot: shield and square
- Right slot: Sword and Square
- Lower slit: Armor and Hex
