"It is not a question about what the Law is, but rather what it is not. The Law
is neither noble, nor an end in itself. It is not for the weak-minded or the
squeamish. The Law is simply a means for those who control it, namely me, to
acquire that which I want. One with your wealth and connections, who is
prepared to sacrifice to have a troubling problem resolved, need only describe
to me in detail the favor you are requesting."

Section 1: The Latest From Taffer
The three prisoners in Mission 3 that have lines...I've done my best to
translate them, but each one still has a small section that I cannot quite
understand. I've done my best, but if anyone knows for sure what it is that is
said, please let me know so I can fix their entries here.

You're probably wondering just what the heck this is. Well, it's a sort of
"Companion Guide" to Thief II. Basically what I've done (and will try to
continue to do) is to document here the text of every document, scroll,
parchment, plaque, letter, report, announcement and palimpsest that I have been
able to find in the game. (I'm also attempting to include conversations of
note, but I'm undecided if this will continue or not, as it takes nearly a half
hour or more do to each long conversation.)

The idea for this came at a point while I was doing the Thief Gold FAQ, but not
until late in the game (sometime after I had finished "The Lost City"), and
despite my desire to do it there as well, I did not relish the prospect of
going through all those missions again to find everything a third (sometimes
fourth or even fifth!) time, particularly the undead missions.

I may still go back and do it, although it would be a very slow process, since
it would be done while I was also doing the Thief II FAQ. If there is anyone
else who wishes to undertake this monumental task, they are more than welcome
to do so in my stead.

Since I am doing this Companion Guide as I do the FAQ for Thief II, I will
attempt to make the version number for each document identical. I will keep
updating the Thief II FAQ version number as I normally do, and simply copy that
version number here.

Please note that this is a COMPANION GUIDE only. It is not required to either
play the game, nor to use the FAQ I am writing. It's simply just a "bonus

As always, despite my attempts to be as thorough as possible, something is
bound to get by me every now and then. If there's anything missing from this
guide that you know of, please let me know about it, and I'll do my best to see
it gets included.

Please write in and let me know how you like this Companion Guide. If I get
enough of a favourable response, I just may continue doing it! :)

Section 2: Opening Notes Regarding This Guide
This guide does not cover the entire game at the moment. It only covers up to
mission four, "Ambush!". Other missions will be added every now and then, at
irregular intervals.

This Companion Guide is based on the PC version of the game. Does another
version exist? I don't know.

2.1: Reading This Guide
I have had a few people email me saying that they had trouble reading the Thief
Gold FAQ through certain programs (such as Internet Explorer). They say they
can't read it through their standard viewing programs, as the lines run off the
screen. This has so far only come from people who are on my mailing list.

When I type up the guide, I use the WordPad program which came with Windows 98.
I have the View/Options set to "Wrap to ruler". Then I type merrily away,
without having to worry about hitting the "Enter" key. Unfortunately, when the
document is later viewed in certain other programs, it prints the entire line
of text until the end, sometimes continuing off the screen (as described

If you are having this problem viewing the guide, then I suggest you do one of
two things:

1) Use WordPad to view it, with the View/Options set to "Wrap to
2) Go to www.gamefaqs.com and download the guide from there.

Apparently (and I don't know how), when the webmaster puts the guide up on his
site, this problem of lines not wrapping disappears.

I'm afraid that's all I can suggest at this time.

2.1.1: What This Guide Contains:
This guide contains:

1) Conversations between people that are (basically) one-time "trigger events"
(example: the two guards in mission one (Running Interference) when Garrett
extinguishes a nearby torch),
2) Anything "written" found in the game, that you need to "use" in order to
3) Anything Garrett says.

2.1.2: What This Guide Doesn't Contain:
This guide does NOT contain anything said by someone that is a common
occurence, such as things the guards say when they are chasing you, or looking
for you, or just standing around bored. It also does not contain anything
written that you can read without using, such as (for example) writing on the
side of a crate, or the words on a wanted poster. (I don't know if such things
exist in the game...I'm just giving examples of what won't be included.)

NOTE: If something is relevent to the mission, and not just put in for
atmosphere, then I will probably include it, even if it is something that I
normally wouldn't.

2.2: Contacting the Author
You can contact me either through email, or through ICQ.

2.2.1 Contact Through Email
My email address is: [email protected]

Please note that this is a new email address. I got a cable modem on July 3rd,
and as a result had to change my email address. The old one was kept active up
until July 9th. My apologies to anyone who tried to email me at the old address
after that time.

I do read all your emails, and I try to reply to every one of them. Sometimes I
am unable to reply, simply due to the great number I receive, time constraints,
and any number of other reasons. However, any questions sent to me that are
already answered in this guide will be ignored.

There is a very simply reason why I ignore these emails. I don't read them.
These missions are not included in the guide yet because I have not PLAYED them
yet. And a lot of the emails I used to get like this would say things like "How
do I do X on Mission Y? I've done A, B, C and D, and found that J and K are
hidden here, but X is still eluding me!" Congratulations, you've just ruined
some surprises for me on that mission. Because of this, I now delete a message
as soon as I see it is heading in that direction.

I hate having something ruined for me...I like playing the game and finding
things out for myself. So do not waste your time or mine by sending in
questions for missions not yet covered...they will not even be read.

2.2.2 Contact Through ICQ
If you want to contact me through ICQ (all single ladies welcome! ), my ICQ
number is: 82595656. My handle is "Taffer". Please note that this is a new ICQ
number. Please do not try to contact me at the old one, as I no longer access

Note that the same rules for email apply to ICQ as well. Also, if you have a
lengthy amount of information to send me, I would appreciate it if you would do
so using email.

Please Note: I do not use the "Chat" mode on ICQ. I only use the messaging
feature. My ICQ settings are currently set up to automatically decline any chat
requests. Unauthorized Adding on ICQ
This refers to people who add me to their contact list using some sort of a
hack or crack program, without receiving my authorization first.

WARNING! Do not, I repeat, DO NOT add me to your contact list WITHOUT receiving
my authorization first! Several people appear to think it's a real laugh to do
this. Well, the first time someone did that to me, they erased my hard drive.
So consider this your first and only warning: Do NOT add me in this
manner...request authorization like everyone else. ANYONE who adds me without
requesting my authorization will IMMEDIATELY get placed on my ignore list. I
will not even bother reading any messages that person may have sent. (This may
seem harsh...but if you had had YOUR hard drive erased, I'm sure you would
understand completely.)

2.2.3: Thief II FAQ Mailing Lists
There are TWO mailing lists for those who wish to be notified of updates: a
"Zipped" list, and a "Notify" list.

Anyone who wishes to be put on a mailing list will have to tell me which one
they wish to be on. One list of people will receive a zipped email attachment
of the FAQ (the "Zipped" list). The other list of people (the "Notify" list)
will only be receiving an email stating that the FAQ has been sent up to
www.gamefaqs.com (and ONLY to www.gamefaqs.com ...anyone else posting the FAQ
does not necessarily have the most up to date version, but I always send the
latest release to the address given above!). Anyone requesting to be put on a
mailing list without stating which one will default to the "Notify" list.

Please note that this does not mean that the FAQ has been POSTED there
yet...only that I have sent it up to BE posted. There may sometimes be a delay
in the posting.

Emails will be sent out AS THE FAQ IS UPDATED AND RELEASED.

Anyone who is on a mailing list that would like to be switched over to the
other list will have to send me an email stating so. Likewise, if you want to
be removed from either mailing list, you'll need to send me an email stating

Anyone who is on the "Zipped" list automatically receives, at no extra cost,
the updated Thief II Companion Guide.

Anyone who was put on one of my mailing lists for my Thief Gold FAQ has
automatically been put on a similar mailing list (either "Zipped" or "Notify")
for this FAQ, unless they requested otherwise.

I have no intention, now or ever, of distributing these email addresses to
anyone, nor will they be used by me for advertising or "spamming". It is simply
to get the FAQ out to those who are waiting for it. Bounced Emails
Once when I sent out a FAQ to those on the mailing list, one of the emails
bounced back. Apparently, someone changed their email address and didn't inform
me. This is not good. Fortunately, it was only one person.

What's my point? Oh yes...from this point on, anyone who's email account
bounces back to me will be removed from the mailing list. Seems fair, since
they aren't getting the attachment anyways.

Section 3: Running Interference (Mission 1)
"Reliance upon others is weakness for the strong, but strength for the weak.
Wisdom and balance lie in knowing your own nature over time."
     -- Chronicle of the Metal Age

I've always equated "feelings" with "getting caught"...they both get in the way
of my money. Unfortunately not everyone is as committed to their work as I am.
An old associate of mine...Basso, the Boxman...wants to marry Lady Rumford's
chambermaid, Jenivere...and live happily ever after. Guess prison life spoiled
his taste for thievery.

Too bad for Basso that Lady Rumford has other plans...marriage would void
Jenivere's indentured service contract, so Rumford is keeping her confined in
the estate with the rest of her "worldly possessions".

Basso has asked for my assistance on getting her out...since infiltration is my
specialty. I make it a policy never to take a job so sentimental, but the
Rumford manor could be a lucrative opportunity for a man like me. It would also
mean that Basso would owe me a favour...And in this line of work, you can never
have too many of those.

I'll sneak in after dark, and clear a path for Basso, so he can rescue his
"damsel in distress". Along the way I'll pick up a few "souveniers" for the
local pawn shops. That should make all this aggravation worthwhile. Otherwise,
I'll make Basso wish he was still rotting in Cragscleft. Huh! This proves
it...going legit is more trouble than it's worth....

3.1: Garrett's Words
Upon entering the butler's quarters:

"Good thing the butler's out for the night...he left his lights on."


Upon discovering Jenivere's cell door:

"Well, that's her door. Guess Basso can open it...he's not much of a sneak, but
he can sure handle a lock!"

3.2: Spoken Lines
Basso, start of the mission:

"I sprung the lock on the side door for you, Garrett. It's the only good way


Two guards, when Garrett douses a nearby torch:

Female: " Damn torches! Always sputtering out!"
Male: "Well don't just make taff over it! Light it up!"
Female: "I lost my tinderbox. Wh-why don't you do it?"
Male: "I ain't the one that's complaining, am I now?"
Female: "Huh!"


Basso and Jenivere, upon her rescue:

Jenivere: "Basso!"
Basso: "Shhhh! Come with me!"


Basso, upon exiting the manor with Jenivere:

"Shhh! Come with me!"

3.3: Written Material
Basement, servants quarters, scroll on bed:

"Dunya -
Sometimes I think I miss the days when "crime ruled the streets", as the
Sheriff would have it. Either way, we walk in fear -- but before, we lost at
most a purse, while now we may be shut up in irons simply for seeing the wrong
thing at the wrong time. Give me the old days back again, and a pox upon Truart
and all his thugs!"

Section 4: Shipping ... and Receiving (Mission 2)
"Blessed be the forge, which gives shape unto metal, and steam unto the boiler.
Blessed be the fire of the Builder and the Forge of Karras."
     -- Mechanist Common Prayer

Business has been kind of slow these days, thanks to Sheriff Gorman Truart.
He's been coming down hard on my competition (and anyone else he deems
"unlawful"). I've been playing it safe by keeping a low profile, but as my
landlord recently reminded me the rent is late. He says he's gonna pay me a
visit tomorrow to collect...so I'll have to go amateur for some quick cash.

The warehouses by the docks should fit the bill. In addition to the usual
shipping traffic there's also a small smuggling operation, sponsored by the
local underground. Not too many guards, lots of dark corners, and several
points of entry should make this job painless, and profitable.

Maybe I'll even have something left over for myself, once the rent is paid.
Huh! Wasn't that long ago that I was planning on my retirement...now the only
thing that's getting retired is my standards. If things get any worse I'll have
to go back to picking pockets in the streets....

4.1: Garrett's Words
Upon entering Bay 0457:

"This place looks like an inventor's shop...there's probably a valuable gadget
or two around here."


Upon falling into the elevator well inside Lord Porter's Bay:

"If I aim right I could hit that button with an arrow and activate it."


Upon entering Bay 0928, or reading the plaque besides its door:

"Jerm is the man that makes those magic lenses. There's probably some valuable
lenses in here."


Upon approaching the ship:

"That looks like Captain Davidson's cargo ship. He's a shady guy...into
smuggling and piracy."


Upon entering Bay 5188, or reading the plaque beside its door:

"I hear this guy's quite a popular musician...his unpublished work should be


Upon reading Sven Mynell's plaque:

"Mynell makes the best steaks in the entire city...his recipes may catch me a
pretty penny."


Upon releasing the large Spider from the cage in Mynell's:

"Eeewwww! So THAT'S Mynell's secret ingredient!"

4.2: Spoken Lines
Hammerite and dealer, outside Bay 0590:

Dealer: "You must be Yurielle. Well, you're late! I thought I made it
        clear to you Hammers that I don't like to be kept waiting!"
Hammer: "Be thankful I treat with thee at all, unbeliever! 'Tis late,
        and I seek to finish here quickly, that I may return to my
Dealer: "Well, my cranky friend, head this way and I'll show you to
        your shipment. You know, you Hammers used to bring a lot of
        money my way, but I haven't seen you around lately."
Hammer: "I require but a fourth part of my usual order...'tis all we
        are needful of. For our numbers have fallen since the rise of
        the accursed heretics!"
Dealer: "Heretics? You mean the Mechanists, right?"
Hammer: "Speak not that accursed name to me! They follow not the way of
        the Master Builder, but a false prophet, who twists holy
        scripture to his own selfish desire! Nay, worse still, those
        infidels would raise his lies to the level of holy word!"
Dealer: "I've been hearing a lot about them lately. Don't know what to
        think of them yet, but seems like they've got plans to improve
        the city...making life better for people like ME. Which is more
        than you Hammers ever did!"
Hammer: "The heretics are not but a trial for the faithful of the
        Builder. They know nothing of devotion...of faith...of
        crafstmanship, or skill...and blindly follow the path of lies,
        greed, and deception! Markest thou my warning: At the forge of
        the Master Builder, He will separate steel from dross, and
        those who follow falsehoods instead of faith will be forever
        cast aside!"
Dealer: "Yeah, yeah...whatever you say...let's just go and finish up
        our business."


Guard and Dealer, outside Bay 0928:

Guard: "Evening Dante. You look exhausted! You should get some sleep!"
Dante: "I remember what it was like to sleep. Boss left this morning
       and put ME in charge of unloading and catalogueing ALL the
       incoming shipments for the Mechanists. Every single bloody thing
       they order is made out of metal. I've been lifting heavy crates
       all day long, and I think my back is about to break!"
Guard: "Buncha taffers in this city! *I* live near Dayport, and I useta
       have a nice view of the mountains. I useta watch the sun rise
       with my wife EVERY morning! But now...that metal monstrosity
       casts a permanent shadow over my house!"
Dante: "Oh, the Mechanist's Tower, you mean? The city has CERTAINLY
       changed over the last year. A lot of that's cause of the
       Mechanists. I was in Dayport just last week...ALL the trees are
       gone, and there are giant chimneys spewing up foul soot!"
Guard: "My whole neighbourhood stinks of that blackened air! My house
       USED to be white but now it's gone gray with that smudge! And
       my son coughs constantly!"
Dante: "Well...there's more to the Mechanists than just factories.
       While I was in Dayport I had to stop by the Mechanist's Tower to
       pick up a payment. I couldn't believe what I saw! They had these
       mechanical faces that watched me! It sent shivers down my spine,
       I tell you!"
Guard: "Yeah...I know all about those metal watchers! They installed
       some here, in the Building B the other day. I hear they plan on
       replacing us guards with them cuz they don't need to give them
       pay at the end of the week! I heard rumours that we're all gonna
       be fired! If that's true...then I'll have to live in the woods,
       like a Pagan!"


Two civilians, outside Bay 7933:

  Male: "I hear Captain Davidson came into port about four hours ago."
Female: "That's what I heard. I hope that dirty smuggler brought us
        some spice! There's none to be found anywhere within this
        cursed city anymore!"
  Male: "I know what you mean. I used to grow my own spice...as well as
        fruits and vegetables...but all my crops died months ago, and
        won't grow back no matter WHAT I try."
Female: "It's as if...all the plant life in this city just up and died!
        Have you noticed that all the trees in Eastport are wilted and
  Male: "Maybe Davidson will smuggle in trees next. Heh. I don't know
        where he's getting the spice from, but his prices are steep!
        He's quickly becoming a rich man."

"Our tenant, Lucky Selentura, has not paid his rent in quite a while. No one
has seen him for weeks, and I've seen wanted posters in the city streets with
his picture on it lately. I've been suspicious of him for quite a while, and
I'd bet you his golden dice that he was running a gambling ring out of that
space. I don't think he'll be back with the Bluecoats looking for him. I have
put an eviction notice on his area, 0266, and I plan on clearing out the place
in a few days to rent it to Gonzalez. I felt bad that we had to throw Gonzalez
out to make room for Capezza, so I cut him a deal on this space seeing that
it's smaller than his old area. Speaking of Capezza, could you ask him to keep
the noise down?

business, but now I rarely make anything for them. Their orders started to fall
off about a year ago, and I became concerned about my future finances. My
concerns didn't last very long because I was contracted by the new City Watch
to produce their swords and armor. The only problem I have now is I have

I don't know what is happening to my business. Every attempt to gain extra

month's overseas export to Governor Horridge was supposed to make us rich, but
the ship never made it to its destination. I suspect piracy. I had to take out
a loan just to cover last month's losses. I was hoping to have this reshipment
to the Governor out the door two days ago, but my workers seem to have a hard
time toting that barge and lifting that bale when I really need them. I would
fire them all in a second, but I wouldn't be able to find anyone to work for
what little I can afford to pay. I just finalized the Governor's shipment, and
I had my secretary run over to Bramrich's office to grab the shipping label so
that it can be attached to the outgoing crate. I'm going over to the Crippled

"Profits for our dockside warehouses have been tremendous ever since my brother
Jason convinced me to let the Mechanists use Building-B for their needs. They
have taken over and converted all four storage bays to contain their machinery
and incoming cargo. This has really hurt my shipping contracts. I lost 12
contracts recently because the cargo had to be stored outside instead of the
now occupied storage bays. Mechanists are now using my work force to move their
cargo and assist in their various projects, and I have barely any workers left
to handle my remaining contracts. They have more than compensated us for our
losses, but still, they worry me. They threatened me harm when I refused to
evict Gonzalez, one of the longtime tenants of Building-A, so one of their
inventors could set up a machine shop. The new machine shop happens to be right
under my poor brother's office, and he's been complaining about the noise
constantly. I guess I should be happy about the money the Mechanists are paying
me, but I feel like they are taking over and I don't even get a say as to what
happens on my own property anymore."

     -- Collected Sermons of Karras

Last night an unusual opportunity knocked on my door. Naturally I was a little
suspicious but my visitor said the job was too sensitive to go through the
usual channels. He claimed that an old contact of mine told him where to find
me. I was about to ask him WHO our mutual friend was when he managed...to
distract me.

The job is to break into Shoalsgate Station -- headquarters of the City Watch
-- and quietly frame a certain Lieutenant Hagen for robbing the evidence vault.
Hagen is Sheriff Truart's number two man...and has no doubt made life difficult
for someone he shouldn't have.

My unusually resourceful employer has given me all the information I need to
pull this off, including a very detailed map of the building. All I have to do
is choose a way in, plan my route, and get back out...without alerting the

I realize that breaking into Shoalsgate is like looking down a Burrick's mouth
with a lit match...but it would pay me enough to lay low for a while. And it
doesn't hurt to be giving the police some dirty laundry to deal with either.
Besides, with my luck if I don't take this job I could end UP in there

  Guard: "Okay...let's take it from the top. What happened?"
Rumford: "Well...my servant Jenivere is missing. Now, she had no reason
         to run away, I treated her like my own daughter. Who'll take
         care of me now?"
  Guard: "Ma'am, I'm sorry to interrupt, but you're drifting off the
         subject again. Just stick to the facts please."
Rumford: "Are you going to help me, or not? I'll have you know, I am a
         personal friend of Father Karras. He has a great deal of
         influence, you know. Where do you think all your fancy new
         devices came from? I doubt he would be pleased to find out you
         were neglecting to help one of his friends."
  Guard: "Excuse me ma'am...I'm just trying to get to the bottom of
         your problem as quickly as I can. Sooner we're done here, the
         sooner we can start looking for your servant. Why don't you
         calm down and collect yourself, while I go over what we have
         so far."
Rumford: "I-I'm sorry, officer. Thank you."


Artus: "The Watcher is ready and operational. Now 'twill activate the
       alarm whenever an intruder doth approach."
Guard: "How does it know the difference between US and an intruder?"
Artus: "To find the answer to that question, thou must attend the
       Mechanists seminary and join our order. The wisdom of Karras is
       not for the eyes of the common man."
Guard: "What about maintenance for all these contraptions?"
Artus: "Thy Sheriff did insist that all information for thy security
       systems be left in the care of Lieutenant Hagen. Instructions
       are locked in thy secure records area."
Guard: "WHAT secure area?"
Artus: "The Sheriff requested us to construct a records hall, that only
       he and his lieutenants may view. 'Tis no doubt to keep them from
       the eyes of incompetents such as thee!"

I appreciate your memo regarding the Warden Affairs Division. I have personally
investigated the matter and have found no evidence to support your accusation.
They have ongoing investigations on the remaining Wardens and have made steady

for the missing evidence, my search has determined that they were simply
clerical errors.
However, I have discovered that several thefts from the vault have recently
occurred. These thefts are in no way linked to the Warden Affairs Division. I
want you to find out who is responsible.
Start making inquiries into the other divisions but stay away from Warden
Affairs. Also discuss this with no one, especially Lt. Mosley. Mosley's

am saying this in a journal, but I think that the Sheriff is somehow involved
in this. I have seen Truart enter there on more than one ocassion. But is he a

appears to be a liquid filling the iris. The knocking is heard a third time.
The picture changes again to show some tools, and hand lifting out a

[The image changes to show a rounded surface, a screw sticking out partially
from it. A screwdriver is placed against the screw, and turns, driving the
screw into place. A voice is heard while this happens.]

Keeper #1: By order of the Council of the Keepers, YOU must come with us.

[The view changes to show Garrett's mechanical eye, held in a gloved hand. A
second gloves hand polishes the eye with a rag, as another voice speaks.]

Keeper #1: Garrett, be reasonable. Logic dictates....

Garrett: [interrupting] LEAVE!

[The image changes to show Garrett's face, one eye socket empty.

Keeper #1: But we must....

Garrett: [interrupting] NOW!

[The silhouette of Garrett's hand is brought up to the empty eye socket. He
winces slightly.]

Keeper #2: Has your wealth of knowledge grown so vast, that you've lost all
hunger for more?

[As the Keeper speaks, the image changes to show Garrett's silhouette,
reflected in a burning lamp. It changes again to show Garrett in silhouette, a
burning lamp in front of him, turning towards the voices.]

Keeper #2: Is there no more trust between us then?

[Garrett shakes his head, and sighs. He stands up, and moves away from the

Garrett: Let's make this fast.

[The scene changes. The image shows books on a bookshelf, then changes to show
several shadows moving across a long bridge at night. The image changes again,
to show an old woman in the background. She speaks in a foreign tongue. Then a
small girl speaks on top of her, translating her words. She is drawn into focus
when she starts to speak.]

Translator: My hand is copper, my brow is lead. Suffer me in a red patina,
swept along in a molten flow to a sad eternity.

[The image changes to show Garrett and some Keepers, looking up at the child
and the old woman. They continue, as the camera draws closer to the men's

Translator: My stride interrupted, my thoughts untimed. My tears are become
drops of silver....

[The image changes, showing the old woman's hand on a page of an old book, two
fingers extended, flowing over the script. She is obviously reading the words
she speaks. The letters seem to glow as her fingers cross over them.]

Translator: ...That shatter the crystalline fern. I plead the wind to sweep us

[The image changes to show Garrett and the Keepers in silhouette, all looking
up at the two women. As the men speak, the translation continues in the

Garrett: Nice poem.

[One Keeper's silhouette turns towards Garret.]

Keeper #1: Not poetry. Prophecy.

[The image changes to show only Garrett and the Keeper speaking.]

Keeper #1: The metal age is upon us.

[The image changes to show all the men in silhouette again. Three are looking
up at the women. The one who was speaking to Garrett turns to look up also, and
the translation continues.]

Translator: I pick the gilded apple from the iron tree.

[The image changes to show the old woman's face in profile. She continues

Translator: I wipe the rust from my brow.

[The image changes to show the men in silhouette again. As they speak, the
translation continues in the background.]

Garrett: [disbelieving] Iron trees? Not in my part of town!

[The Keeper turns to speak to Garrett again. As he speaks, the image changes to
show only himself and Garrett's silhouettes.]

Keeper #1: Find the humour if you must, but can you tell me truly Garrett...are
there any trees in your part of town? *I* will answer for you: There are NOT!

[The image changes to show all the men in silhouette again, the one Keeper
still looking at Garrett.]

Translator: Destiny and danger are still focused on the one....

[The image changes to show something like an iron gate, with a spider sitting
in its web it has built among the pattern of the iron.]

Translator: ...The renegade who is both brethren and betrayer.

[As the translator speaks, a shadow moves across the spiderweb. The image
changes to show a closeup of the spider, as the shadow jostles it. Several legs
fall off of the spider, and a gaseous substance escapes from its body. The rest
of the spider falls to pieces, and fall to the ground.]

[The image changes to show the men in silhouette again. As they speak, the
translation continues in the background.]

Garrett: Well, you got the danger part right anyway. Tell you what. You Keepers
can plant a few shrubs about town, and...I'll take care of ME.

[As he speaks, the image changes to show the four silhouette's looking up at
the women.]

[The image changes to show only Garrett's and the one Keeper's silhouette.]

Garrett: I'll find my own way home.

[Garrett turns to leave, the one Keeper turning to watch him go. The image
changes to show Garrett walking away on the bridge, the Keeper watching. In the
background can be seen many books on shelves...we are looking at a bridge built
near the top of a huge library.]

Keeper #1: You're a fool! Do you not understand what is at stake?

[The image changes to show the three Keepers watching Garrett leave. As they
speak, their body language changes to indicate who is talking, and to whom.]

Keeper #3: Did you not hear the interpreter's words?

Keeper #2: Yes, Keeper Orland, he HAS heard. Do not despair. Let me go after
him. Alone. Not to persuade, but to leave the door open between us.

[One Keeper detaches himself from the group to follow after Garrett. The image
changes to show Garrett at a distance, walking through an archway. The Keeper
walks into the scene, and stops. Garrett stops as the Keeper speaks.]

Keeper #2: One more moment if you will, Garrett.

[Garrett turns to face the Keeper. As he does so, the Keeper starts forward.]

Garrett: [exasperated] ONE moment.

[The image changes to show Garrett's silhouette up close. An insect flies
around in the light of a nearby burning lamp.]

Keeper #2: You have trouble, my friend.

[The image changes to show the Keeper's silhouette approaching. As he enters
the light, his face is revealed. The insect continues to fly around in the

Keeper #2: Danger from someone who hired Truart to kill you.

Garrett: [impatient] Yes?

[The Keeper raises his hand to give what appears to be a letter to Garrett. The
scene changes to show Garrett's silhouette, the Keeper's hand now shown in

Keeper #2: Then take this.

[Garrett reaches forward. The image changes to focus on their hands in the
light. Garrett's is gloved, the Keeper's is bare. Garrett takes the letter as
the Keeper speaks.]

Keeper #2: The sooner you are done with YOUR business....

[The image changes to show Garrett's silhouette, up close at first, walking

Keeper #2: ...The sooner you will help US.

Garrett: Don't count on it.

[As he walks away, the old woman's voice is heard again. The translation

Translator: My heart it ceases....

[The image changes to show the scene where the men had looked up at the women.
The men are no longer there.]

Translator: ...My breath undrawn....

[The image changes to show a close up of the old woman's eyes.]

Translator: ...My eyes forever focused....

[The image fades to darkness.]

Translator: ...On the sanguine metal...dawn....
