--Grail tablet for the Endless Corridor

The Endless Corridor (無限回廊, Mugen Kairō) is a field within the ruins. As the name implies, if the player reaches one "end" of one of the corridors in the area and attempts to go further, he or she will be taken to the other end of the corridor.

Initially, the player can only access the topmost floor of the Endless Corridor. The player will need to retrieve the Endless Key from the Confusion Gate in order to drop down to lower levels.

[edit] Overview

The Endless Corridor is accessed from the Mausoleum of the Giants. It also serves as a one-way exit from the Dimensional Corridor.

The Corridor bears an Arabic motif; a bizarre-looking Arabian skyline dots the background.

There are five corridors within the Endless Corridor.

To go from the top corridor to the next highest corridor, the player needs to get the Endless Key first. Doing so summons a ladder connecting the two.

To go from the 2nd highest corridor to the 3rd, the player must light up the lanterns associated with the "end of the 5th year of the Aztecs" (2012, as stated in the manual).

To go from the 3rd highest corridor to the 4th, the player must place a weight on the pedestal at the entrance, then run quickly to put a weight on the dragon. Alternatively, a secret passage in the right-hand wall (suggested by the tablet) lets the player solve this very quickly.

To go from the 4th level to the 5th, the player must solve a series of block puzzles. In the first room, break the pots and clear a path to push the blocks. Throwing Knives or Spears are necessary to break some of the pots. In the second room, arrange blocks above the platforms, then put a weight on the pedestal to drop them all at once. Several platforms in this room collapse here, so be careful. In the third room, break a wall near the collapsing platform, push the top block down and quickly move it across the collapsing platform. Then move a block onto the top platform so you can drop the final block onto the goal. In the last room, break the first stack of pots to drop the block down and reveal a pedestal. Weighting this pedestal reveals a pillar. Push the top block out once, then break the pots under it until you can stand on it and push the last block across the pillar to the platform.

After reaching the lowest level, the player descends into the Shrine of the Mother.

Ye who runs needlessly.
Thou art a fool.
Thou art a fool.
Thou art a fool.
Thou art a fool.
