Assuming you’ve not unlocked the Red Lobster Inn entrance in Malum District yet, from the stargazer, head right and continue on the straight path till you’ve entered the building with the staircase. Climb up the staircase, and you’ll be out on the street again, but go right from there, and you’ll reach another building with a big hole in the floor.

Fall through that and head straight out the front door, and you’ll notice that there is rubble being lit in an eye shape. Go past that rubble to the street in the right corner and take a left turn. Just keep moving in that path, and you’ll enter the building with a ladder going up. Just climb up that ladder, and you’ll reach the second phone booth to talk to King of Riddles and answer him in Lies of P.

I stand tall and proud when I’m young and bold.

But I’m short and humble once I’ve gotten old.

From the Stargazer, head left and go straight ahead till you reach the staircase on the right end. Climb up the stairs and take a left turn, but do not go straight ahead here. There’s a path in the middle connecting another floor on the left side, so take that.

There’s a room on the right side, right in front of the path, you need to go in there. From there, continue straight ahead and head downstairs. Keep moving straight through the room in the front, which will take you back upstairs. You’ll find a railing right in front of you, so just go left from that railing, and you’ll find the phone ringing

Think about this, whatever it takes:

What cannot be used before it breaks?

Answer: Egg

Phone Riddle 4: Krat Central Station Street

From the stargazer, head right through the underpass and take a left. Continue on the path, and you’ll soon hear the phone ringing when you reach the fence. Just take a left, and you’ll find the phone booth.

This blue flower has many ways to take root.

But only on man does it ever bear fruit.

Answer: Ergo

Note: This is the riddle that can potentially throw you into a soft lock. If you get this riddle wrong, then the King of Riddles will ask you to offer a Bright Red Apple to the Golden Statue of Corday in exchange for the Trinity Key. If you’ve used the apple elsewhere, then you’re completely stuck.

Phone Riddle 5: Relic of Trismegistus

This one’s black and white.

A no or a yes.

Is Geppetto’s creation a killer? CONFESS!

Answer: Yes

Note: Answering Yes would give you the Trinity Key; however, it would affect your Lie/Truth ratio. In truth, you are a murderer, and you’ve spoken the truth. Answering No will be a lie, but would still give you the Trinity Key, although it is inside King of Riddles’ Surprise Box. Opening the Surprise Box gives you the Trinity Key but also applies the Decay status effect as a punishment.
