House of Secrets is a location in the Crow's Nest district of Aleroth that can be accessed during the events of Divinity II: Flames of Vengeance. The house is situated east of the Forgotten Crypt and north of Decimus' House, south of the district's waypoint shrine.
The House of Secrets is free of both people and enemies. In the front area of the house you'll find a handful of containers that may contain random loot, and some food on the dining room table. At the rear of the building is a small maze with 16 locked rooms, arranged in a 4×4 formation. Before beginning to navigate the maze, interacting with the pedestal results in this conversation:
"You venture in a maze of hidden treasure, so take your time and explore at leisure.
Tread wisely the paths of this little maze, and for long its riches you will praise."
Most of the doors in the maze are "Troublesome Doors" that require a "Troublesome Key" to unlock. These are found in chests, either alone or in pairs. The four westernmost rooms are color-coded, and require the correct color key to unlock the door (blue, green, purple, or yellow). There is one of each color key in the maze. Within each of the westernmost rooms is an unlocked treasure chest containing gold or a unique-quality item.
Use the maps below to plan your route. From the entrance go north or south until you're east of the colored room you'd like to end at. Proceed in a straight line, going directly west to your destination. You will not have any extra Troublesome Keys to deviate your route. Each one of the small rooms is different, and it may be worthwhile to reload and explore the maze a little bit to see them all if you're interested.
The north-south doors between the chest rooms are lockpickable. If your character has a lockpick skill of 5 or lower, he/she can only obtain one treasure. With lockpick skill 6 or higher, he/she can obtain all four treasure chests by unlocking the doors between the treasure chests. (In the Dragon Knight Saga version the door between Green and Blue requires level 7.) You can upgrade your lockpick skill with Caroline at the Ministry, or gain one point by mindreading Mysus at the Black Market.
