Hint 1

If you've looked at Lily's trunk, you saw that it has an unusual lock; instead of a key or a keycard, you need a number overlay -- a piece of transparent film with numbers printed on it.

Hint 2

Actually, you need two of them, since the overlay somehow got ripped in half. So keep your eyes open for something like that.

Hint 3

You'll find the first half in tunnel 5, which you'll find when you solve the bird tile puzzle in the ceiling above the cat tomb.

Hint 4

The second half of the number outlay will be given to you during a conversation with --

Hint 5

-- Jamila, quite late in the game. After you've gotten into Abdullah's trunk --

Hint 6

-- and gotten into Jamila's bag a second time --

Hint 7

-- go talk to Jamila about everything. She'll give you the other half of the overlay at the end of this conversation.

Hint 8

Now go back to Lily's trunk and look at the lock again. If you've read the flyer you can see on the floor at the left, you have an idea of what you're doing here ... right? Well, read to the end of this hint for a picture showing the solution to the puzzle.

Hint 9

The deal here is that you need create a block around each number containing that number of squares. For example, a 3 will have four squares in it, a 4 will have four squares, and so on.

Hint 10

There two difficulties here: you have to use every square in the puzzle, and the blocks all have to be squares or rectangles; you can't have L shapes or T shapes.

Hint 11

To create the block around a number, click on the number and hold down the mouse button as you drag the color in the pattern you want. If you have to go in two directions (for example, if you want to put two spaces to the right of a 4 and one space to the left in a line), do one side of the block, then click on the number again and do the other side.

Hint 12

In the case of odd numbers, the block is always going to be a line rather than a square or rectangle. After all, you can't make a solid square with an odd number of pieces; you'd have a block missing.

Hint 13

If you get totally flummoxed and annoyed by the thing and want to start over, click on the Reset button on the upper left to blank out your work, then heave a sigh and start again.

Hint 14

Here are the solutions. The actual colors are different every time you play, but the numbers and the layout is always the same, so look at the shapes rather than the colors.

Hint 16

Hint 17

Inside you'll find a number of really interesting items, enough to make you really doubt this lady's integrity in a number of ways. The only thing you can take is --

Hint 18

-- the piece that was missing from Jon's notes. Thief!

Hint 19

When you pick up that item, the wind starts to howl.
