It´s strange but i can´t use the books somehow.

How do i do that?

I´m just missing 2 silver rewards and one gold reward to complete the crof manor but somehow i´m stuck in the study.

Btw just out of curiosity does that trap in the floor near the stairs in the hallway work?
WHat about those blue lookalike doors that has a symbol and a C in the middle...does that work?

If you're talking about the colored books, you have to find some riddles to be able to mess around with the books.

Oiy... There are a few hidden riddles around the mansion you have to figure out to get the gold reward.

If Im correct, you have to look at it and press the 'interact' button and she'll read it out loud.

I've nearly finished the croft mansion as well. Looking for the last silver reward but i'm also having trouble trying to locate the gold one..
Found the riddle in the secret passage, recognised what it was alluding to, went to the two twin statues of athena above the swimming pool where I found the face behind them and I clicked that.
Then nothing.
Am I supposed to get another riddle there? Or somewhere else?

The panel between the dual Athena statues in the swimming pool rotates twice. If you cross their weapons, the face will appear and it opens an underwater tunnel to the gym, but if you put them back to back a panel with the riddle appears.

I thought of that and tried it already i.e I pushed back the statues to their original positions.
It's not working..
Game defect?

Actually you have to rotate them all the way around, till their poles are pretty close to the wall to reveal the riddle panel.

If you already have got the Golden reward you can't read the riddles you didn't solve before getting it. I could't read the riddle in the library so I replayed it from the begining without getting the Gold and it was there.I wrote down what it says but I lost the paper1:D

These are the riddles:

1. Above the Waters, Twin Sisters turn their backs upon the other to leave the Ambages unguarded.

2. Within the Hall of Knowledge, Tomes of Cerulean, Topaz, Viridian, and Crimson in turn reveal their Arcanum.

3. Above the Hearth, revealed visage and countenance touched in haste raise up the Steward.

4. The risen Athena turns to face the Sun, whose burden then reveals the Golden Laurel.

Unless Im missing something here...
