Close up of a tinderbox

Tinderboxes are tools used to ignite light sources such as wax candles, torches, lamps and fires. Tinderboxes can be found all around Castle Brennenburg, but they're usually found in chests & drawers or on the floor. There are 145 tinderboxes found in the game. While tinderboxes are much more common than lamp oil, they can only be used to light stationary light-sources, such as torches. Tinderboxes should be used in areas the player travels around regularly, so as to make the most of them.

Tinderboxes can also somewhat be used as a means of helping with navigation. In areas with a very low light level, the player can use tinderboxes to light torches - not only as a means to light the area up, but also to remind the player if they have already visited this area. This is especially useful in the prison and Choir.
