Hello, everyone!
I’m stuck with the symbols on the Town Square.
Spoiler: show
I know I’m supposed to put the eagle on the perch and the gift over dann, but the eagle and the gift are both on the innermost ring and the other two on the outer and middle rings.

Use spoiler tags, please!

Town Square
Spoiler: show
You seem to have misinterpreted the clue, but that's understandable; the clue is highly ambiguous. Truth be told, I solved this puzzle by aligning the inner ring and then brute-forcing the rest.

Spoiler: show
Line up the eagle with something an eagle would normally perch on.

Spoiler: show
Line up the eagle with the tree. Then you can either brute force it or correctly comprehend "its gift."

Spoiler: show
"it" refers to the eagle; it arguably should have been written as the "eagle's gift"

Spoiler: show
Line a gift from the eagle over daan


Spoiled solution:
Spoiler: show
Put the inner ring with cross in the second position "Point the mark towards the cross"
Code:
WOODPECKER|CROSS     |FISH      |EAGLE     |PIG       |EYE

Spoiler: show
Turn the outer ring to put the tree over the eagle. "Find the eagle a perch"
Code:
WOMAN     |FEATHER   |BLACKBIRD |TREE      |SPARROW   |CUBE

Spoiler: show
Turn the middle ring so daan appears beneath feather. "Put its gift over daan"
Code:
WOMAN     |FEATHER   |BLACKBIRD |TREE      |SPARROW   |CUBE
JI        |DAAN      |SHI       |AAK'EE    |HAI       |TLÈÈ
WOODPECKER|CROSS     |FISH      |EAGLE     |PIG       |EYE


When the puzzle is in the correct combination, do this to solve it:
Spoiler: show
"say ahe'hee"

I’ve restarted the game a couple of times to try to solve the town square but every time I say the word I either get no response from the man or the game tells me I can’t talk to myself. Is there something else i’m supposed to be doing?

Town Square Man

Spoiler: show
Talk to him and ask him about a few subjects.

Spoiler: show
He’ll eventually go away if you talk to him enough.

I don't think that's the main puzzle there, though.

Spoiler: show
You're supposed to arrange the central shape in a certain way.


Spoiler: show
The poem you got (assuming you got a poem) will give you clues about how to do that.


Spoiler: show
That's when you say the magic word.


Spoiler: show
Punctuation is important.


Spoiler: show
More clues from Dan above about this.


Spoiler: show
I was able to complete the game without ever getting the man to go away.

I’ve tried several times with the man either there or not and it does’t make a difference. I’m thinking it might be another glitch like I had with the studio where I wasn’t able to complete it in any of my playthroughs without dying and undoing a specific amount of times

Hallway South

The coffee cup suggests that I have everything I need to solve whatever issues remain here, but when I enter
Spoiler: show
a Liminal space
it suggests I need to go elsewhere to solve that puzzle.

I haven't a clue how to proceed. Hint please.

The coffee cup is correct in Hallway South--the other thing is a bug (or oversight)

Spoiler: show
Or maybe just telling you you need to head back to Hallway South.


To solve this

Spoiler: show
Read the description of Liminal Space carefully.


Spoiler: show
This is a little easier if you know the Inform 7 language, but hopefully it's possible to read even if you don't.


Spoiler: show
The description of Liminal Space is the source code for Hallway South.


Spoiler: show
Notice anything in the source code that wasn't described in Hallway South?


Spoiler: show
Go back to Hallway South and you can interact with it.

Carol's Room

A hint please about
Spoiler: show
how to distract Carol. Is it a use of a magic wor/phrase, or another action?
