Bainespal said he couldn’t [spoiler]get into the mess hall. I found the mess hall okay, as it is not in a locked area (get onto the battlements, then follow them south - they will take you on a loop around and through the mess hall, eventually ending at a locked door to the guardhouse.
My problems are:
I can’t unlock the door to the guardhouse. I tried the gold key again, and also using the knife.
I haven’t been able to get past the dog. Whether I give it the sausage or throw it the sausage, it immediately returns to its post after eating my sausage.
A hint mentions ‘under the kitchen’ but I assume I haven’t seen the kitchen because it’s past the dog?[/spoiler]
Any player guidance appreciated.
EDIT - Oops wait! Re: the dog, I just solved the problem by throwing the sausage south (into the pit.)
