The letters A to H in the map represent the items. Each letter corresponds to a type of item. They vary from play to play, but if you know which item was in which room you can look at the table above to find out where the all the other items are.

For example, if you find in a room marked with letter A, you see that items are distributed like in the 2nd column of the table above, so for example can be found in rooms marked with letter C.


Cauldron wants the items in a specific order. When you enter the cauldron room as a human you see the required item blinking above the cauldron. Don’t enter the cauldron room as a werewolf!
