The door sure does rattle,
but it's stuck tight.
A secret is hidden out
of your sight!
You may be thinking,
"What could it be?"
You'll need five magic cards
if you want to see.


What to do, then,
with all these?
I'll tell you straight
and I won't tease--
Just as long as
you say "please".


Now the first thing you must know
Is that there's something
in each row.
But that is not the half of it:
Three would be too hard to fit.


The upside-down man
under the ground:
To his right, to his left,
there's no one around.
Leave him alone, though
his tears are profound.


The moon is up above the sky,
Full or crescent, floating high.
Twinkling light sits like a crown
On the head of a crazy clown.


Your Excellency,
praying to God most high
Do you think you
can tell me why
You always look up
at the night sky?


Do you have it now?
You didn't forget?
One major point you
must not omit.
And now at the last,
before you take a whack
Here's one more hint to
help keep you on track.


Scary and hateful, that
thing in the night
Better be careful --
it's not on your right!
Turn to the left and
you'll keep it in sight.


So you'll open the door?
I'm just sure that there'll
Be nothing beyond it but
frightening peril.
Forget about that!
Just stay and play!
Or else I'll be left
here alone all day.



So what do we do with so much crazy stuff?

The door sure does rattle,
but it's stuck tight.
A secret is hidden out
of your sight!
You may be thinking,
"What could it be?"
You'll need five magic cards
if you want to see.

--
So we have 5 Tarot Cards, magic cards, which are the following:
Hanged man, moon, fool, eye of night and highpriestess. And these will let us in now.

What to do, then,
with all these?
I'll tell you straight
and I won't tease--
Just as long as
you say "please".
--
So what do we do? Let's try to make some sense of these lines: I'll tell you straight and I won't tease... yeah, sure!


Now the first thing you must know
Is that there's something
in each row.
But that is not the half of it:
Three would be too hard to fit.
--
This is easy still, in every row there is at least one card, so in every one of the 3 colums and rows there is at least one card.
-> Three would be too hard to fit.
And a maximum of 2 in every column or row, which means 2 rows have 2 and one 1 has 1.


The upside-down man
under the ground:
To his right, to his left,
there's no one around.
Leave him alone, though
his tears are profound.

--
The upside down man is of course the hanged man
under the ground, means, he is in the bottom row.
-
To his right, to his left,
there's no one around.

mean that he is in the middle of the bottom row and noone else is there, so, no other card is there.
-
Leave him alone, though
his tears are profound

means that not even above him there is someone, so the middle colum stays empty except for the hanged man.
This also explains which are the last 4 fields to be filled, now the question is how.

The moon is up above the sky,
Full or crescent, floating high.
Twinkling light sits like a crown
On the head of a crazy clown.

--
The moon is up above the sky,
Full or crescent, floating high.

means that the moon is in the top row.
-
Twinkling light sits like a crown
On the head of a crazy clown

means that the light of the moon shines on the fool's face, so the fool is below the moon. But to the left or to the right?

Your Excellency,
praying to God most high
Do you think you
can tell me why
You always look up
at the night sky?
--
Your Excellency
is the highpriestess.
-
praying to God most high.
means she is below something.
-
can tell me why
You always look up
at the night sky?

means that the eye of the night is above the highpriestess.
But we still don't know which pair is on the left and which on the right.

Do you have it now?
You didn't forget?
One major point you
must not omit.
And now at the last,
before you take a whack
Here's one more hint to
help keep you on track..

--
The whole paragraph means only that we still don't know which pair is on which side... let's hope the next paragraph tells us more.

Scary and hateful, that
thing in the night
Better be careful --
it's not on your right!
Turn to the left and
you'll keep it in sight.
--
thing in the nightt is the eye of the night
-
it's not on your right!
Turn to the left and
you'll keep it in sight.
... so, it's on the left!

All this leads to the conclusion that the Tarot Cards have to be aligned like the following in the normal riddle mode:

         Eye     X X      the
         of       X       Moon
       Night     X X

        the      X X      the
       high       X       Fool
    priestess    X X

        X X     hanged    X X
         X        man      X
        X X               X X


This was the solution for the normal riddlemode.
For the easy riddle mode you just have to have a look at the children's book on the bed and you will find the solution in it. It looks as follows:
         the     X X      the
        Fool      X       Moon
                 X X

        X X      Eye      X X
         X       of        X
        X X     Night     X X 

      hanged     X X      the
        man       X      high
                 X X    priestess






For the hard riddle mode you are given a scheme with some insane letters in it and nothing more.
ING    WXX    NXA
OEI    IFI    VII

MOX    NOT    XVH
XON    HNG    III

XAA    CXX    CCX
JII    IEI    IHT
You have to delete all letters that are no roman numbers, so only I, V, X, L, C, D and M stay.
What's left is:
II     XXII   XVII

MXX    0      XVIII

XII    CXXII  CCXI

The 0 in the middle is there because there is no roman number in the middle. Now have a look at the tarot cards and voila, they all have roman numbers. According to the scheme you put them in and this leads the the following alignment in the hard riddle mode:
        the      Eye      X X
       high      of        X
    Priestess   Night     X X

        X X      the      the
         X       Fool     Moon
        X X                

       hanged    X X      X X
        man       X        X
                 X X      X X


So, now the Silent Hill 3 Tarot Card Puzzle should be solved and the door should finally be open, save one last time and then enter the dark hallway opening up for you.

Stairs
Walk this way. I can't tell you more and you don't want to hear more. Or read.

Ventilation Room
You reach a huge door through wich you will go now.

Vincent and Claudia have a little fight

After you are able to do something again you use the TALISMAN (PENDANT) from your father.

Now it gets weird and ugly but also cool somehow...

Jump into the hole that opens up and you will fight the final fight against the final boss.
