Bigger Than You Think (zarf) - hint required

hi, i’m stuck in zarf’s new CYOA ( ). need a clue about what to do with the black crystal or the umbrella, and what to do at the temple door. thanks!

I struggled with that as well! If I remember correctly, the key insight is that after going down twice and seemingly dying, the game actually allows you a chance to take another action – strictly speaking, you haven’t hit the bottom of the pit yet!

[Edited to add: Once you’re past that, my hope is that the other points you mentioned will fall into place on their own.]

perfect, thanks! finished it just now :slight_smile:
