After reaching the Entrance Hall, you can speak to a young girl named Beca. She warns you that you shouldn’t be there and advises you to talk with the First Witch immediately. She also cautions you to answer the First Witch honestly and that things should turn out okay (emphasis on “should”). Continue heading to the right, and you’ll find the First Witch by the fireplace.

The First Witch will ask you three questions (these questions will always remain the same even if you start your game over). How you answer them will determine whether you continue your conversation with her or meet a gruesome demise and proceed to Chapter 1.
