if you haven't played up to this part, dont read on.
I'm on the swamp of Oblivion playing with Keats. At the part where I choose to go either to swamp or the other place. Well once i go down spiral platform that brings you to the entrance to swamp where there are some under water citizens and the doctor, you're at a save spot and go go on. well the first room i come to has a barrier in front of it. even after defeating all the enemies it is still there. what am I missing? the pause screen says I need to defeat the folk and save Herve, but can't continue.

Folklore, Swamp of Oblivion. help needed
Wow, what's wierd is I didn't think you used Keats to save Herve at the swamp. He sends Ellen to save him and Keats ends up fighting the Folklore. Try not going to the swamp and heading towards the Folklore to see what happens there.
Thanks, Yip-Man, for the SP!
Make sure also that you talk to the doctor.
I think there might be a 2nd exit in that first room that's blocked. Check to see if there is. I have the game myself but haven't played it since it in months, but I think there is a 2nd exit in that area you're talking about.
If you kept different save games, do you have one before the fork choice? Then maybe try the other choice since you are on the first pass (first character). I know, not the best option.
I went and looked up the guide for you. The start (a non-fighting room where the fork choice dialog occurs) is really more like a corridor turning on itself that leads to the palace and to the swamp. The corridor starts with a save point, as you proceed around the turn you get to an entrance (north), this leads to the Palace. If you continue going around, at the very end you get to a second much smaller entrance, this one leads to the swamp.
The very first room when entering the swamp is roughly shaped like an hourglass. You enter from the south at the bottom of the hourglass. You proceed through the thin neck and end up at the top of the hourglass. That section of the room has a large entrance at the north and a smaller one on the right side (east). If the north is blocked, you must go east.
The very first section of the hourglass is described as having 2 Selkies and 2 Afrancs. Then you fight 3 Aughisky. After defeating all 7 of them, you take the east exit.
In the next room, you will need to defeat the enemies and then go east again. Once that is done, then you can come back to the first room (hourglass) and the north path should be open now.
So basically once you enter the swamp as Keats, you must go east, east, west (come back one), west (come back one), north (from the first room).
This was my post on the issue many months ago...
I couldn't fight the boss and was running around the underwater stage like a headless chicken until i discovered 1 thing.
Check your Picture book and LOOK at EVERY folk in the picture book to make sure u have them.
I killed ever folk in the swamp level but when i checked my picture book there was i pic of 1 folk i hadn't collected (Ogma i think) and he was in the fairy realm. I had to leave that undersea/swamp level and go to where that folk was i needed and i obsorbed his ID then when i returned to the swamp the barrier was gone.
So check the picture book properly coz chances are u haven't collected someone from a previous real who is needed to defeat the folklore in the undersea/swamp stage
Hope that helps
Catashtrophe above has a very good point. To defeat the Folklore as Keats , the folks listed are Selkie, Ogma, Excedra and Gargantua.
