[3][4]Professor Oddenstein's location

Talk to Veronica standing just outside the courtyard of theDraynor Manor. She wants you to find her fiancé, Ernest, who had gone to the manor an hour ago for help and has not come back yet.

Enter the manor and climb up the staircase and then climb the spiral steps to the west to reach the top floor. Talk to Professor Oddenstein, who will explain that Ernest was turned into a chicken, when he was helping on an experiment with his 'pouletmorph' machine. However, to change him back, the professor needs parts that were stolen and hidden by the poltergeists in the manor.

You need to help him find a pressure gauge, a rubber tube, and an oil can, in any order you wish.



To get the pressure gauge, you will need some fish foodand poison. The fish food is in a blue box, found on the1st floor[help], in the room across the staircase. To get thepoison, you need to go to the small north-western room on the ground floor.

Once you have obtained both items, use the poison with the fish food to create some poisoned fish food. Go outside the manor through the east door and look for the fountain on the south-west corner of the garden. Use the poisoned fish food with the fountain to kill the piranhas and search the fountain to get the gauge.


[6]The locations of the tube and compost heap.

From the fountain, head north and look for a compost heap; search it with a spade to obtain a grimy key. Return to inside the manor and go to the room behind the staircase.

Unlock the door to the room and a skeleton (level 16) will attack you if you get within a square away from it. Take the rubber tube and leave the room, killing the skeleton if you wish.


[7]Pulling the candle sconce.

Go to the western-most room on the ground floor. Search the the left bookcase next to a candle sconce to gain access to a secret room. Look for a ladder that leads downwards, and climb down into the basement. There will be doors and levers around you. Follow the steps given below to obtain the oil can.


  • Players can reset the levers by home teleporting and going back.
  • It is not possible to use telekinetic grab to pick up the oil can.


All levers start in the "down" position.
