One of the notes you can pick up give you instructions for the first 3 summoning-rituals - very detailed step-by-step stuff. It's somewhere in the library, I'm pretty sure of it... if you've picked it all up there, check your files and see if you don't have it.

Thing is, I noticed that there's a 4th summoing-circle, even after completing the other 3... I've got no idea how, or even if, you activate that one.

As BlackDragon said, one of your codexes (in the quest related section) will detail what you need to do (ie what items to activate). It's in the library, where the three summoning circles are on the ground.

Can someone baby step me through the 3rd summon or at least tell me how to do the first step???

I don't know how to inform the higher up Magi on it like the note says to start it... Where is this first step located???

BTW loved extorting the closet mage for 75K :D

Thanks spine will try that tonight!

Glad the first step was weird because I totally didn't get it... I was going back to the circle anyhow so this will finally wrap it up!

I still don't get that fourth one. Are you supposed to just figure that one out through trial-and-error experimentation?

Its the First set of instructions, followed by the second set, followed by the third.

What is the point of the fourth step? All I get is this mage saying he shouldn't be here and that it is "not right at all" before disapearing again. Neither does the basement open that someone mentioned?

When you go to the room that has the babies where you first meet Wynne, try to open the door and a demon should pop up behind you to fight.

BlackDragon

No, that's an entirely different summoning-ritual, which you have to perform a couple of floors up...

But yeah, this 'hidden 4th ritual' is just weird. Arl Foreshadow? I'd exected he would at least, ya know, FORESHADOW something before disappearing again.:p

Another source says to pickpocket him before he dissapears. Unfortunately that skill seemed utterly useless to me (lvl4, even stealing during combat, still getting a few coppers and never anything else) and my rogue skipped raising it this time around.

If anyone get to pick his pockets, what did he have, and did it justify the ludicrus Steal skill?

BlackDragon

Damn, I didn't even think of that... I always have Leliana tag along for her trap-disarm and lockpicking-skill anyway, and she usually have at least two levels in Steal when you get her.

Actually, though, I've been experimenting with Pickpocketing, and it seems there's a number of 'marks' in the game - NPC's with no other purpose than getting pickpocketed from, who have rare and valuable items. For example, on the Denerim marketplace, you can find an arrogant noblewoman - her name's in yellow, so you know there's SOMETHING about her - and pickpocket her for a Tiara, a unique gift. Probably goes over well with Morrigan, or whatever.

I just pickpocketed him and all you get is a note.No idea what was in it due to the crappy inventory system in the game not making it clear which note he gave me.Not much of a reward but ho hum.Also,when doing the summoning,you need to do it fairly fast as if you take too long the ritual will reset.

As soon as I get to the carving I get zapped.

Nothing Im doing is working so looks like Im jsut going to skip this and not waste anymore time on it.

This is just an easter egg referencing a joke in the Baldur's Gate series, for us old PC gamer fogies :P No real reward besides a pittance of XP and silver.

The game makes use of the Select button (Or BACK if you look at the controller) to go to whatever just got updated in the bottom left of screen (usually). If it says new codex, it'll pull you right to that entry, or if it says quest updated it'll pull you there. Though it could have been better implemented.

Forshadow was also a guy in Baldur's gate. He was a lord. This game uses Arls (Like an Earl) instead of lords.

I have seen the summonings written out but I'm not sure where. There are four that you can do. Three of them are actually in your inventory. If you go to the quest section and look up in the 'notes' it will be one note with a set of three instructions. Each one is longer than the last. When I find the page that had all four I'll let you know.
