    • I have previously started this quest, later abandoned it. Now I restarted it again but when I get to the Wine Cellar, I cannot find any way to Unlock the False Cask Passage. :( And the Hint I get before entering the Mannor is: 'Ask the Speaker for help'... what Speaker?!!?!? WTF....?!?! Anyone who solved this issue? Thank you
