In the room with the candle, Charlie will stop before another rift. This time, when we try to push him, he will initiate an encounter with us [1]. Due to the fact that this is our ally, we try not to hit him too much, just counter his attacks and break from grips. After a short struggle, he will begin to strangle us [2] and in the end we will be saved by other comrades.

Our task is to get to the other side of the room in such a way that we are not eaten by the small beasts. In order to do this, we need to set subsequent braziers on fire and jump towards them so that their light repels the spiders. The first brazier is slightly below us. We throw a torch at it so that it is set on fire [1] and then we jump over to the illuminated pillar.

Thanks to our actions, we will be able to rotate the stone globe. We run up to it, get on the landing and start thinking. We have to set the globe so that the illuminated areas merge with the contours on the globe. The stars located both on the stone ball and in the shafts of light will help us to configure the globe. Note that you can use both analogs to rotate the globe. When we have the correct position [1], a hidden passage will be revealed on the upper floor.
