During the first act of Inscryption, you usually handed your pelts to the Trader in exchange for cards. Once you reach the closing stages of the game, your old pal will have an entire different function. Here’s our Inscryption Act 3 guide to help you find the Trader and Holo Pelts.

Inscryption Act 3 guide – Where to find the Trader and Holo Pelts
There are five Holo Pelts found in the Botopia zone in Act 3 of Inscryption. The game itself doesn’t use a world map this time, but the items are still fairly easy to find:
- Four of these are located in rooms/screens/areas in Botopia’s main zones and dungeons. My advice is to always check the four cardinal directions (north, east, south, and west). There are times when an arrow might be hidden, and you could actually reach a new room if you can click on it.
- In these four locations, you’ll find a rabbit jumping around. Click on the beartrap when the rabbit is jumping over it to turn it into a Holo Pelt.
- One Holo Pelt can be purchased from a “shopping area,” likely the first one that you’ll see from the starting point. It does cost a pretty penny, so we advise you to farm some Robobucks first. Also, you’ll want to purchase the Nano Armor consumable first since it’s more useful for battles. You can worry about the Holo Pelt later.
As for the location of the Trader in Act 3 of Inscryption, this fella is actually well-hidden. You have to progress further in the campaign until you reach Golly’s zone.
In the mini-dungeon, you should see a lock symbol. You might be thinking that a doorway would open (similar to the secret keys that we used). But, no, surprisingly enough, nothing happens.
Well, nothing happens in “the game within a game.” But, all you need to do is stand up and move away from the table. You should see that the door to your left has opened.
You’ll find the Trader in this small room. He’ll let you choose one tarot card for every Holo Pelt that you offer. These actually offer clues about Inscryption‘s meta/background lore (i.e., a cursed video game that has led to deaths, people trying to keep it under wraps, and Luke Carder’s role in all of this). There are also numerical sequences at the bottom of the cards, but I’ve yet to figure out their significance. But, hey, at the very least, this nets you the “Forgotten Lore” achievement.
