All would agree a welcome sight
With bells in the wind do swing
Heralding the start of spring.

Answer: Flower (White bell-shaped top, seen during spring)

The second from left panel says:

Make things harder, make things softer
Make a rich man, make a pauper
Not too close, but love me too
Too close, and I'll devour you.

Answer: Fire

The second from right panel says:

Sails I have, but sail I don't, at least on the sea.
Round and round and up and down, working hard for thee.
Grinding up with my back teeth, as I said,
The main ingredient which you need to make your daily bread.

Answer: Windmill

It adorns the trees, makes old men wheeze
On the stove it melts, from grey skies it pelts.

Thus the red symbol of the slabs in the chamber corresponds to the red symbol of the trap's symbol panel.

Darren has to identify which trap is linked to which slab in order to deactivate 4 out of 4 slabs in the chamber. Then 4 slabs will be left for the four people present.

Go down to the chamber. Note the red symbol of the 7th slab, the one with the stone weight.

Return to the trap room.

The red symbol of the 7th slab matches the symbol column of the third rope from the right.

Note ALL the 5 characters and their colours of the corresponding symbol panel of the third rope.

Mini-Game: Trapped!

Solution:
This is a visually difficult game due to the complex characters used. Darren has to recreate a particular symbol set in the description panel, using which he can activate the 4th trap harmlessly.

In the panel, there are 5 rows of symbols. Each row can be slid right and left by clicking in the empty space in their slots on either side. There are two vertical columns. The aim is to place a symbol from each row inside a column, and then use the switch to select the left or right column as applicable. The symbol panel of the third rope has to be recreated bottom upwards in this manner, starting with the red symbol in the lowest row.

Once the symbols are set, click the white button at bottom left. If the set is correct, then the trap to be activated displays beside the button.

Click here for the solution.

The third rope is confirmed to be the one attached to the stone weight over the 7th slab.

Darren needs a knife to cut the rope.

Exit to the chamber.
