After successfully completing the "Castle's entrance" quest, go up the stairs and start attacking the dragon. After a short time, a conversation will start. If you choose the "Candies" option, you can now unlock an extra question from the cyclops at the lighthouse.

In order to obtain the The P stone, a complex puzzle must be solved, that looks something like this:

 _____ _____ _____ _____ _____ _____ _____ 
|     |     |     |     |     |     |     | 
|  1  |  2  |  3  |  4  |  5  |  6  |  7  |
|     |     |     |     |     |     |     |

|     |     |     |     |     |     |     | 
|  41 |  42 |  43 |  44 |  45 |  46 |  47 |
|     |     |     |     |     |     |     |

When you first start, only fields 24 and 7 will be visible. The idea is to activate the symbol on square 7

The meaning is the symbols is as follows:

T: activate the square above

>: activate the square to the right

<: activate the square to the left

V: activate the square below

#: the amount of "charges" left on your active square

This means the square in the middle has all direction symbols (T, >, < and V), but only 3 charges to start with.

On square 25, you'll unlock one that looks something like this:

  _____
 \     /
 /  V  \ 
 \ --> /
 /_____\

This one means that the line below (31-37) will move one square to the right. So whatever is on place 31 goes to place 32, 32 goes to 33 and so on. Whatever was on square 37 goes to 31.

A similar version will become visible at square 12:

  _____
 \     /
 / < T \ 
 \   | /
 /_____\

This one moves the column to the left (1, 11, 21, 31 and 41) one square up. So 41 goes to 31, 31 goes to 21 and 1 goes to 41.

Lastly, to activate empty fields, you need charges on your active ones (symbol #), but you CAN run out of charges. This means you must be careful about what you click, since running out of charges on a bad place or missclicking may force you to reset. Luckily, there are special fields that can add extra charges to your active squares. They will appear as pairs on square 2-3 and 16-26 and look like this

  _____
 \     /
 / <3  \ 
 \  <3 /
 /_____\

Clicking on these will give 1 extra charge to all adjacent squares (up, left, right, down) and since these are in pairs you can click them back and forth to add as many charges (up to 5) as you wish.


Completing the puzzle[edit | edit source]

  • 24, 14, 15, 24, 24, 23, 13 (uncover the first "<3" block)
  • 25, 25, 36 (uncover another "<3" block)
  • 26, 25, 37, 27, 17 (get a pair of "<3" blocks)

Move the "T" block so that we can charge it:

  • 16, 26, 16, 26, 25, 25, 25, 25, 25
  • 16, 26 (charge the "-->")
  • 25, 16, 26, 16, 26, 16, 26

Move the "T" block one again so we can build another block.

  • 25, 25, 31, 21, 11, 1

Uncover the "T> |" block:

  • 25, 32, 22
  • 3, 2, 12, 3, 2, 12 (charge the "T")
  • 16, 26, 25, 16, 26, 25 (move the ">" block out of the way, and a "T" block into place)
  • 41, 31 (uncover the second "-->" block)

Move a charging block underneath "? ?":

  • 3, 2, 12, 3, 2, 12 (move the "-->" into place)
  • 3, 2, 1 (Move the "<3" block underneath "? ?")
  • 17 (charge the "? ?" block)
  • 7 (done!)
