  3. I make the tea,Athena makes me invisible,but I can't get to the palace.Nothing happens except losing the objects required to make the tea.

    Any advice?

    1. Well, I played this game a long time ago, but from my notes it says that you AUTOMATICALLY exit to the palace. Since not only is that not happening, and you're ALSO losing your tea ingredients, looks to me like you have a buggy version of the game. But the game is linear so you cannot move ahead without it. Maybe you can try loading an earlier save game, or restart your PC and then see. I'm assuming here that you have the original game and not a cracked version. Worst case, you can always write to the devs.
