  • The grave of Paulette Tootsbury immediately to the left can be dug up with a shovel for skull chips (x3),
  • Further to the left there are some floating bones guarding a group of cultists who are trying to reanimate a skeleton. To get past the barrier of bones you can either crush them (Muscle 20), dispel them (Mysticality 20), or shoot them (Moxie 20), receiving 30 - 32 XP however you do it.
  • Past the bone barrier you can either fight the group of cultists, or just wait around and see what happens.
    • Choosing to wait will eliminate the cultists, as the skeleton they are attempting to animate goes on a rampage, killing them all, scratching its name in the ground (GRUTCH) and disappearing. You receive no XP for this option.
    • Once the cultists are gone, you can retrieve a Nex-Mex book from the pedestal, and a clue for the Necromancer Journal (requires Stench Resistance) from the outhouse.
  • To the right there are a several gag graves, but you can dig up Stanrietta Minkleston with a shovel to get handful of loose teeth (x3).
  • At the extreme right you can find a non-threatening skeleton, Bernard, who would rather not be reanimated by the cultists. Once you have taken care of the cultists he will give you the worry stone.

Puzzles[edit | edit source]

Granddaughter Puzzle[edit | edit source]

The first puzzle in Reboot Hill is to figure out which of the cemetery's inhabitants was a ghost's favorite granddaughter, via a logic puzzle. The hints given about the granddaughter are:

The old woman (who is now a ghost) died at age 95. (Her tombstone is to the right of the gate to Plot #2)

  1. She was born when the old lady was somewhere between 37 and 42 years old.
  2. Her first name ends with a vowel.
  3. Her first name was longer than her last name. (More than 5 Letters)
  4. She's not buried next to any of the old lady's daughters. (Going by the dates of birth, these are Farrah, Lillith, Margaret, and Pearl, who are born 15-20 years earlier than the 3rd generation)
  5. She died at the same age as Becky who was in poor health. There are 4 Beckys, who died at 16, 24 or 23 [1], 38, and 50. It also can't be a Becky, since no Becky had the same age.
  6. She likes knitting and by deduction is the same person who has a dormitory locker in Kellogg Ranch.
    • Reading the diary will reveal one of two clues, either that her name has fewer than eight letters, or that is is longer than seven letters.

Here's all of the information from the relevant tombstones (assuming it's not randomized for each playthrough):

  • Rebecca Smith 1800-1895 (95) - This is the old woman's grave.
  • First Becky 1837-1875 (38)
  • Little Becky 1843-1859 (16)
  • Mezzo Becky 1838-1888 (50)
  • Penultimate Becky 1840-1864 (23)
  • Faith 1834-1859 (25)
  • Farrah 1816-1867 (51)
  • Faye 1841-1856 (15)
  • Fidelity 1836-1885 (49)
  • Fiona 1839-1878 (39)
  • Leilani 1849-1864 (15)
  • Lenore 1847-1863 (16)
  • Leslie 1840-1859 (19)
  • Lillith 1822-1859 (37)
  • Linda 1845-1880 (35)
  • Madeline 1836-1875 (39)
  • Magdalene 1840-1863 (23)
  • Margaret 1819-1884 (65)
  • Melissa 1842-1880 (38)
  • Meredith 1837-1874 (37)
  • Pamela 1841-1857 (16)
  • Patricia 1838-1862 (24)
  • Paula 1845-1850 (5)
  • Pearl 1820-1875 (55)
  • Penelope 1836-1886 (50)
  • Rebecca Smith 1800-1895 (95) - This is the old woman's grave.
  • First Becky 1837-1875 (38)
  • Little Becky 1843-1859 (16)
  • Mezzo Becky 1838-1888 (50)
  • Penultimate Becky 1840-1864 (23)
  • Faith 1834-1859 (25)
  • Farrah 1816-1867 (51)
  • Faye 1841-1856 (15)
  • Fidelity 1836-1885 (49)
  • Fiona 1839-1878 (39)
  • Leilani 1849-1864 (15)
  • Lenore 1847-1863 (16)
  • Leslie 1840-1859 (19)
  • Lillith 1822-1859 (37)
  • Linda 1845-1880 (35)
  • Madeline 1836-1875 (39)
  • Magdalene 1840-1863 (23)
  • Margaret 1819-1884 (65)
  • Melissa 1842-1880 (38)
  • Meredith 1837-1874 (37)
  • Pamela 1841-1857 (16)
  • Patricia 1838-1862 (24)
  • Paula 1845-1850 (5)
  • Pearl 1820-1875 (55)
  • Penelope 1836-1886 (50)

Eliminating possibilities based on the clues, there actually appear to be several people who fit the description. The number in parentheses is the difference between death and birth years, but DOES NOT necessarily indicate the person's age at death, since they may have died before their birthday in that year.

The personnel files in Fort Cowardice will further narrow down the exact birth and death dates of some of the Smith clan.

If you guess incorrectly, the old lady will be overcome with grief and will not allow you to guess again until the next day.

The answer will be either Magdalene or Melissa.

  • If you previously read the diary in Kellogg Ranch the correct answer will be based on whichever clue was randomly given in the diary.
    • "fewer than eight letters" implies Melissa, while "longer than seven letters" implies Magdalene.
  • If you did not previously read the diary, your first choice is guaranteed to be incorrect.

Successfully solving the puzzle will reward you with 90 - 96 XP, and a ghost flower.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  1. Now it appears that Penultimate Becky was 24 as her grave says (1840-1864), but upon further inspection she is actually 23. By looking through Fort Cowardice's records you can see that Becky didn't live to see her birthday in 1864, thus making her 23. She also had 0 sick days which means that it can't be her the ghost lady is referring to. (Or at least that's how it was in my game)

Tombstone Puzzle (Plot #2)[edit | edit source]

On the right side of plot #2 are a few normal tombstones and a "tontine" puzzle involving three big and fancy tombstones.

Each tombstone contains a key fragment, and a letter sequence.

The key fragments can be assembled into the tontine key by clicking on any of the fragments, which will then prompt you to reassemble it.

The puzzle solution is to line the letters up in a grid like so:

B T L I T R
O H L G H E
O I E H T E

And then read it down columns and then across by rows - which spells out BOOT|HILL|EIGHTH|TREE.

Head back down to the entrance of Reboot Hill and go to the eighth big black tree from the left of the edge of the area (or 3rd from the right of the entry to Plot #1). Click on the tree and a prompt will show up to put in the key. This will reveal the tontine treasure chest, and in the box is an unbreakable ruby (sell price of 2000 meat) which can be turned into jewelry
