"Scared of Shadows" is a quest given to the player by Etel. The quest is completed predominantly in the Ice Cave.

Conditions[edit | edit source]

The following conditions must be met for Etel to give the player this quest:

Completing the Quest[edit | edit source]

Etel will task the player with finding the Ice Lagoon and clearing it of imps.

Finding the Lagoon[edit | edit source]

An entrance to the Ice Lagoon will spawn at a random location in the fourth room of the Ice Cave. The entrance is covered by a cobweb - the player cannot enter without using the lantern to burn the cobweb. As with other cobwebs, this will consume a small portion of the player's lantern fuel.

Clearing out the Imps[edit | edit source]

The Ice Lagoon consists of a single map-wide puzzle. As with the other puzzles in the Ice Cave, the core mechanic involves the player sliding on frictionless ice until they hit ground or a block. Additionally, until the imps are removed, there are several imps which can knock the player backwards. As a result, and unlike the other puzzles in the Ice Cave, this one requires careful timing by the player.

Throughout the Ice Lagoon there are 5 torches. Unlike other torches in the Dark Cave, these do not have a timer, and are permanently lit once activated by the player. Lighting all 5 torches will cause the imps to immediately disperse.

  • This quest can be completed without first receiving it from Etel but only if Barnabas is alive. If Barnabas dies before the player has received the quest, the quest cannot be turned in.
  • This quest can also be completed without returning the question to Etel. No rewards are given, but other quests (such as Residue) will still be triggered.

Rewards[edit | edit source]

Rewards for this quest are dependent on the state of the current game.

  • If Barnabas is still alive when the player returns to Etel, the player is rewarded with a Permanent Extra Minute, and the quest "Den of Darkness" begins.
  • If the player receives the quest from Etel, but Barnabas dies before the quest is complete, the player receives no reward but "Den of Darkness" is still triggered.
