stuck & confused

Hey guys, little help, please.

I have the parts to the orb, and the mucus bone, blood, and mushroom. I was trying to combine the tonic ingredients, but it said the bone was too big, and the blood needed purifying.

I went through the central door, thinking all would be fine since I went in there before I even fixed the levers to the two side doors. I'd gotten past the monster (he glitched a bit) and looked through those three rooms in the big hall w/ blue fire. Imagine my surprise when the monster was back, and hit me when I wasn't even close to him.

I woke up in a cell, and I have the bucket of water that should have a key in it, but I can't do anything with it.

So, three things: Did I mess up my game by going through that middle door when I wasn't supposed to, how do I combine the three things for the tonic (or is it too late), and why the hell can't I just dump out the water from the bucket??

Oh, and a fourth, unrelated thing, I've been carrying around a "lever for a machine" for half the game, never used it. Does it ever come into play?

RE: stuck & confused

You have not messed up your game, don't worry. Smile

You cannot combine the items yet - you will be able to when you next find a laboratory.

HINT
Spoiler below!
You have to find the right place to use the bucket. The key is NOT in the bucket, the water is used elsewhere.

SOLUTION
Spoiler below!
Look around for a broken pipe on a wall (to the right of the exit). You can either either pour the water down the pipe to wash the key out, or take the iron bar and knock it out.

Thanks, that's a relief. I just looked at the hint,, I'll try and figure it out again.

(although replying to this comment almost made me read the solution, because it shows what's inside spoiler tags when it quotes)

When you progress out of your cell. Make your way back to Agrippa and the torture table to the left of Agrippa will be gone and a HUGE hole will be there. The Lab will be on the other side. You can figure out the rest there.

The prisoner's note didn't say the key fell down the well, and keys don't float so you wouldn't be able to get it anyway. Re-read the note.

Tonic will solve itself don't worry.

The monster is one of those "supposed to die/lose" game moments, the monster doesn't actually exist its a script that activates when you commit certain actions to advance the plot.
