LOL: Throne Of Chaos

I'm in Castle Cimeria in the CD version of LOL: Throne of Chaos.  I can't seem to get the fourth statue so that I can free king Richard.  The walkthru at The Spoiler Centre says that it is a Unicorn, and that I need to pick a lock to get it.  The question is, how can I improve my lockpick skill enough so that I can open this door lock?  My character with the best lockpick skill only has a skill of 2.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

1) I'm not sure, but here is kinda alternative solution:
Look for a small key then run through the swinging door, making sure you time your passage carefully. Look for
Dawn and free her using the diamond by clicking it on the crystal ball. Look for a niche housing a cobra and exit
the room by jumping into the pit, if you entered from the south. If you entered from any other direction, place
something in the cobra's niche after you've grabbed it.
In the pit room place objects on the floor to find four floor pads which, when all are activated, will open a secret
passageway leading up stairs. In the next room there is a secret switch on the east wall. Throw something at it and
it will activate a transporter. Throw something into the transporter to close the pit.
We're almost there now! Emerging from the transporter grab the key to open the door to the north. Then, in the
Room of Darkness, place four figurines on each of the four pedestals - the light will move when you've got the
right combination. Finally, put the four pyramid keys on each corner of the blue shroud - the correct key will stay in
place.

2) UNICORN STATUE: BEHIND LOCKED DOOR ON EAST SIDE OF LEVEL.
YOU WILL NEED GOOD ROGUE SKILLS. REMEMBER THE JADE NECKLACE AND
THE "MASTER" GRAND AXE WILL INCREASE YOUR SKILLS +1 EACH.

Thanks a lot Busuka!  This is exactly what I was looking for!  The saved game editor at Happy Puupy didn't help when I first tried it, though.
