Buffalo Pile is a map location and dungeon. Inside the pile is a circular series of 5 rooms. The right doorway leads to the next room in the sequence, eventually wrapping around back to the first room. The left doorway in each room (initially) leads to a major fight; once that is complete, the left doors connect to the preceding room in the circular sequence.

Room 1 (Entryway)[edit | edit source]

You can inspect the cards on the table. Each has a brief randomized description.

  • If you freed Grutch, the cards are ripped up and may not be inspected.

Room 2 (Vat Room)[edit | edit source]

On a table you can find oversized chemical beakers. Against the back wall are 4 vats of liquid (left to right): blood, milk, ichor, and lemonade.

You can use the vats to fill your beaker with combinations of liquids. You can find clues for valid combinations by eavesdropping on cultists in room 5. There are, however, only 3 valid mixtures, as follows:

Note that order is important; for example, using lemonade, milk, milk will result in a ruined concoction instead of fudge.

You can acquire a new beaker once you've used one. However, note that the 3rd time you add something to a beaker you destroy the last tank accessed (for the rest of that playthrough). So ideally you would make a beaker of buffalo reanimating fluid (destroying the ichor tank), and then your choice between fudge and lemonade (as either will destroy the lemonade tank).

On the laboratory table you can assemble Buffalo Buffalo Buffalo Bill. For this you need the buffalo soldier bones, and the beaker of buffalo reanimating fluid. The bones are acquired here (on the shelf), but first require you get the buffalo soldier diagram from the footlocker in room 5, for which you will need the Buffalo Pile locker key found here in a robe hanging on a rack (you could also use Lockpickin' 3 and a needle). The beaker of buffalo reanimating fluid is manufactured in room 2.

The holding cells contain an infinite supply of combats for your grinding pleasure. Other items can be found by searching the shelf full of crates of bones, human and buffalo:

Room 4 (Bathroom)[edit | edit source]

Two toilets can be found, a good one and a bad one; both may be flushed.

Room 5 (Sleeping Quarters)[edit | edit source]

Hiding in the wardrobe allows you to gather clues for using the vats in Room 3 (if you have not yet killed the guards at least).

  • blood after ichor, fail and turn to liquor,
  • milk after ichor might as well reanimate wicker,
  • milk before ichor, soldier wakes up quicker,
  • blood before milk as obsolete as the word thilk,
  • ichor after milk rituals smooth as silk,
  • ichor after blood way to go stud,
  • ichor before blood bad idea bud,
  • milk after blood rituals a dud.

A few additional items can also be acquired.
