Dragon Flute

The Dragon Flute is an item in Shadowgate 64: Trials of the Four Towers. This magical instrument is found behind the door with a dragon emblem in the Disciples' Tower lobby. The door cannot be opened until the main character, Del Cottonwood, receives the Ring of the Kingdom. Two of the flute's main abilities are to either to open the doors to the Dragon Tower or to call down the last dragon for a ride (though, this is only done in a cutscene).


  • The tune played by the dragon flute is an excerpt from "The Melody of Flight".
  • The dragon flute is the item last visibly used in the game. Del uses it in a cutscene to call down the dragon in order to escape the collapsing Castle Shadowgate after the destruction of Talimar.
