There does not appear to be any key to the first gate online. If you have closed yourself in, you will have to figure out how to open it on your own. I did this too, twice, in fact. But always managed to open it again.

RE: Dialogical scheming
You get that ending when you give the crolna to Pelagon.
That works for me, in Sheepshaver. But on Windows.
What is Ayrit?
Does anybody intend to log the responses you get from your various party members when you use "ask about" and click on an item? A lot of the responses are just standard, for example "looks like a strange device", and might not be very interesting. But some other responses are.
This is all very exciting.

RE: An Analysis of the Strange Device
As Pallas said, it is based on a toy. Gandreas stated a long time ago that he had this toy in his childhood, and that it kind of shaped him into the kind of person that he is today.

RE: Omen again
My theory is that they can only truly become people that are dead. And when they have, they are stuck in that form until they are truly determined to take another. All other shape shifts are temporary - they can only be held for a short time.
It is also what happens in the game. He only becomes Halos for a short time and he only becomes Magpie for a short time.
At a later time, when killing Alaric, he was truly determined to become him.
What the Wizard says is exactly what I meant: I always assumed the crolna had been tainted by the undine for a very long time. And that whoever tainted it was inside it. That is what the seldane speak about, that the crolna was the cause of corruption or something such. I don't remember exactly.

RE: Omen again
I just think it seems unlikely that anybody other than Pelagon killed Opheltius. Because if another undine did it, why would that undine first have the shape of Pelagon upon entering Cademia (becuse again, Stentor did see him)?
Also, the thing about Pelagon being Omen's master, yes it does sound likely, but I still do not firmly believe it. Why? If you re-enter the grotto when you have the four shards, Pelagon is still there. How can he be in the shard and in the grotto? Granted, this may be a bug, because when you enter it again, Pelagon still moves up to you, and brings up a dialogue, except this time he does not have anything to say.
Another thing that bothers me is that the Seldane seems to know that the crolna is tainted. But how can it be tainted (by Pelagon) while he is still moving around in the world? I think it would seem more likely if another undine has been tainting it all along.

RE: Omen again
"Welcome, Human, to my little test for you. It is not hard to pass, and will give you some of the skills you need to survive (though you may feel like a creature in a cage). I hope that Omen did not startle you. His appearance is strange, but don't let that deceive you. "
Who wrote this scroll? Probably Omen's master. But who would that be? Is he the one you kill when you purify the crolna?
Also, I think Pelagon really is the murderer. Why? Because he travels through the sea. Stentor saw him in Cademia (and I want to recall him saying he was dripping, but I might be mistaken), and Stentor is always standing by the sea, so that would probably be how he saw Pelagon. Someone came out of the sea to plant the crolna in the fountain in Catamarca (ever noticed the hidden tunnel between the sea and the spring?). Someone came out of the sea to kill Antiphus (he was drowned and was covered in kelp).
I think Pelagon is behind all of these acts.
