  1. Your missing a Hidden Side Quest, there is a cave through the blue portal that has some bones, straw mattress, and a note that if you make a proper burial site (dirt and gravestone over his bones) you can have his treasure. It is an accessory that allows you to double jump!!!

  2. Justen is correct, There is a cave (which cave exactly is random for everyone), where there is straw floor, a pot, a bed and some bones. Place dirt over the bones then place a tombstone over the dirt. My cave was one of the ones near the Garden side quest. Other people’s are closer to the castle. But it should always be located within the Blue Portal area
