A large zombie resides inside circular building where also key lays. There's a hole in ceiling, obviously unreachable. Try to use zombie as a ladder (you may get some unpleasant whipping damage from this and zombie won't stand still all the time) or use Boots of Jumping to get up. Spiders rush to attack you when you put your head up there.

In small courtyard with monks and zombies is a shovel (near house). Pull the shovel, so a hedge opens at front of you. There's a stoned guy which is a perfect target for pitchforking.

Stop just before the archway and tune your audio equipment so that you hear all sounds loud and clear. Walk thru the archway and follow the path to the right. Continue a short while. Turn from a corner and continue again slowly. Now, you should hear some humming. As you approach next corner, the humming comes slightly louder.

There's no visible sign and no other clue than the sound which reveals the SUPER SECRET.

    Thanks to Stuart Sibley for finding the SUPER SECRET!

    How to scavenge cheat codes from Blood?

    You can read all cheat codes from the Blood Executable file without problems if you have proper programs to display all file contents. Some disk editors or some file viewers could be handy. I used Directory Controller for DOS to view the file and then simply searched all text strings by pressing A. Well, near 1300000 bytes from the start of the file seems to be some interesting stuff. If you remember how alphabets go, you can read easily cheat codes, try for example LARA CROFT or FUNKY SHOES to help you, if you won't get any enlightment by writing them to paper...

    Worth of trying:
    During my experiments I invent a way to do very high leap. You have probably noticed that whipping wall with napalm launcher won't push you into air as in Quake. Try to jump directly upwards with jumping boots and when you're near the highest point, drop remote detonator with Alt-Fire and quickly blow it up. You get some damage unless you have god mode on and you really fly upwards more.

    At the ledge after the jump exercise from the ice block to ice block, you'll note a crack in the far wall. Blow it up.

    Contains: Box with TNT, shotgun, tommy gun

    There's a tower with hole on the ceiling. Use Boots of Jumping to get there.
    Contains: 2x promixity bombs, 3x remote detonators

    After very big jump over fiery chasm turn to right. There's some debris, when you investigate more closely, you discover passage beyond.

    When you must go to the underwater, first use your diving suit to flip large wooden lever at the left to open a passage. Then go back and investigate right side corridor and rise to the surface.
    Contains: Diving suit, some other misc. stuff

    E2M8: The Lair of Shial

    It seems that there are no official secrets. Some items are lying around but you can find them pretty easily. And anyway it's useless to greed everything with you because this is the end (of Shial, of course).
