        If you take the "The one most worth is already here" bluff option and succeed, and proceed to wait several times, Areshkagal will leave due to the paradox of the One Most Worthy both being present and not present at the same time.

          Can someone explain the logic of these puzzles? I get that its dominoes, but there are multiple solutions to make all the tiles fit.

          The only thing that I figured out is that the symbols on the "outside" area (where you place 1 symbol blocks) that are touching the "inside" area (where you place two symbol blocks) must match the furthest symbol in a straight line on the "inside" area. However, in one of the puzzles, this logic is not the case for one block.

            If you completed Nenio's quest before, you can show the Areshkagal copy the mask of nothing and order her to leave. After you wait several time, she will disappear due to the contradictory orders she received and you will finish the quest as usual.

              After you complete the puzzle, a portal to "Secrret Passage" opens. If you've completed Nenio's quest and are wearing Areshkagal's mask, you want to take it off BEFORE going in the portal.

              And guess who's here? Areshkagal.

              Areshkagal: "One most worthy. You are late." The sphinx's voice is tranquil and unchanging. Her masked gaze stares out indifferently somewhere above your head. "We've been waiting for you a long time, but the age of the Earthfall has ended, and along with it, our patience."

              Areshkagal: "The secrets of Creation will remain unknown. Leave."

              You can go through the various dialogs. There are a lot of (Chaotic) choices, some of which require the Trickster path. Others require moderate to high Bluff. Sooner or later you will have to choose [Attack] to get anything out of this encounter.

              This aspect of Areshkagal has relatively low AC, decent SR, Energy resistance 20 Electricity, 10 Acid/cold/fire, and is immune to poison, electricity, and being prone.

              Dispatch pseudo-Areskagal and your friendly Ancient Ghost appears and says, "I have been imprisoned by that cursed sphinx for thousands of years, but now I am finally free. There will be no more encounters with wandering travellers. I will never again have to lure them into a trap with the promise of great mysteries. I must reward you for my freedom, adventurer. Although I have been dead for thousands of years, I was once a thief, and a goo dthief always has some loot stashed away. Take this as a token of my gratitude."
