a bit late I know and don't know how long the wiki fanpages have been around but found this site immensely helpful and informative

https://tales-from-the-tower.fandom.com/wiki/Florentine%27s_Journal#Second_Part

and also alt+c or alt+v can be helpful for added or decreased brightness ingame. Use these however when ingame playing and not in usermenu or inventory mode.

Thank you for the great compliment! I mainly just started this wiki out of appreciation for this game. There's probably a lot of errors and incomprehensible stuff in there, but if you find some use in it, then I'm most happy to hear. Thanks for the hint regarding brightness adjustment, too! I hope some people will find it helpful. Take care!

Fabulous wiki fansite sir (or lady, I am presuming SIR! A HUGE compliment!! One of my alltime favourite games I've loved and played since it came out. Of course have several hard copies, dutch(english) and german and on GOG and even Steam. Recently finished the oopmf time playthrough, still gives me chills. I constantly forget to backup the saves so end up overwriting them and lose the chance to backtrack for different cutscenes and such. I always thought the adversary in the circular puzzle rooms with flamethrower was Belial but oviously not since the showdown with him comes later. No idea who this chapterboss might be. I read in old magazines (of which I have even more than your fantastic fansite) that the designers had to discard an HOUR of extra gameplay for it to fit unto 3 of 4 discs and be sellable. Imagine what might have been (the large house and the graveyard i.e.). They allready had the sequel planned but poor sales prevented that. What a shame but what a marvelous game!!

I hate to correct you, but I'm a female creature. ;-) It's wonderful to hear that there are people out there who are at least as enthusiastic about this game as myself. And I agree, some things in ROTH are still puzzling to me to this day and I wish they would have had more time (and disk space) to elaborate on that. As for the chapter boss you mentioned: I think I stated in the wiki that he is supposed to be Pyrichiel (hence the flame thrower cf. Greek πυρ (pyr) fire). He is mentioned by name in the official Interplay walkthrough. Anyways, thanks again for your kind words and interest in this game. Take care!

Wonderful dear Lady. Always a pleasure to find fellow-Roth-lovers with such extended depth of knowledge. Even ancient greek, which I had to study for 6 years -along with latin, german, english and french apart from my native dutch- at grammarschool, now fortunately a very long time ago. I'll start reading your marvelous Wiki a bit more indepth. Currently deepsearching web.archive for related articles and software, finding german, spanish, polish, french sources and even finnish as well. Most I can read or translate, but polish and finnish is beyond me :) Of course downloading all scans hires and even some cdroms as iso that date back to the game (pre)release.
I also found that to change the brightness ingame, just c or v will suffice, as was stated in the original game manual.
I also found a german 1997 mag with some nice HEX-edits to get more ammo and healing potions, image attached. AUF in german means TO, i.e. CHANGE TO

What a fun coincidence: I had most of those languages you mention in school as well (Latin, French, English, a bit of Spanish; wish I could have picked Greek too) and to be honest, I enjoyed most of them. Everyone has their preferences, I guess. I'm not very good at physics for instance. I understand that an apple will fall to the floor (under normal terrestrial conditions), but that's about it.

That sounds like a great idea. I'll probably have to go check if there's any other magazine scans or material I haven't entered in my list yet. Is it okay if I add your screenshot as well? I'll make sure to credit you of course. Anyways, have a good rest of the week & stay safe!

Me too, had to choose between alpha and beta, and psysics biology etc were wasted on me, so obviously the languages. It helps in reading other languages immensely. Sure you can use the screenshot and once I am done organising I can make all the scans, iso, etc available online for you to use as you will. Will keep you posted. I am almost done browsing 400+ magazines from the web.archive as well as cdroms and websites. Stay safe as well. Getting my skates on again pretty soon what with the coldspell over here....

I just found this one as well. Gives a pretty good insight into the story. Always wondered about the menhirs/stones with magicals seals. Seemed to be the same 7 seals later on and this storyline apparently confirms it. Still no a real clue where the soulstone came from in the first place, viewing the intro movie again and again, but obviously well guarded by a winged angel? and later on the Knights.

Hi there, I just uploaded to my Google-drive my own folder of magazine scans I've gathered over the last months, other than your wonderful collection at Wiki. I've added a link at the Facebook-group and can of course let you in as well if you're interested. Had to open up some space for it though on my drive, about 1.7 Gb. Many non-englsh and some you have but higher resolution. Many however you have were taken down from the web-archive and no longer accessible.

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1SS6ug8qXlJHFCii80uRy3MeQ8xXit3ND?usp=sharing

I have loads more, but no space at the moment. The folder can only be accessed if you drop me a line and I "grant" admission. This goes for any other interested ROTH-fan as well :)

Thanks so much for offering insight into your collection. Take care, my fellow ROTH ally! ;-)
