You can find it on the plaque that sits opposite from the door to the puzzle room. It reads: “Women are blind to male advances, but the poor shall take their chances / to give their lord their bounty sown, so that soon the wine may flow.” If you’ve played any horror game ever, you’re already familiar with the nonsense-rhyme puzzles; this just basically tells you which direction to turn the statues in.

  • Beggars – turn the statue to face the Horse.
  • Maiden – turn the statue to face the Lady.
