Although not a famous scholar, he is certainly respected by both his students and peers. Maximillian is a somewhat portly man in his mid-fifties. His wife passed on years ago, after fighting consumption for many years. His three children, themselves now adults, visit him from time to time. More often than not, though, he remains alone in the family estate, left to his own devices. His children fear for his sanity - they believe it is unhealthy for an old man to be left alone in such a large house. They may be right... -Dr. Edwin Lindsey A.D. 1983 - Angkor Thom Region, Cambodia Edwin discovered this temple through a radar sateillite, but his adventure is a lot like one of the Indiana Jones's movies, The Raider of the Last Ark or was it the Temple of Doom?

As the fire explodes, he is being sent flying and fell into an underground temple. Shocked he was, as his other people are dead and he sees a monument, full of dead people covered in cement, a ghost of Roberto gives him the essence, but Michael has some other objectives that need to be done. ============================================================================== @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@ Enemies @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@ ============================================================================== -Zombie -Easy to kill, take off their head and they will stand there cluelessly and swing their arms around. Finish them off once laying on the ground. -Mummy Zombie -Limbs regrow as "phantom entities" when severed, causing deep rooted insanity on the observers...The wrappings of the mummy are highly combustible, and catch fire easily. -Mantorok Zombie -A living human corpse, it has no special attributes or weaknesses. It is very weak - composed of dried sinew and skin. -Transparent Zombie -Like the other zombie, but this one is transparent and it holds a rune inside its body, to receive the rune, you must put the zombie's life to an end. -Horror -its eyes are its weakness. The creature is highly dependent on sight, rather than sound. Sometimes Horror are a pain to fight against, especially two in the same room. If one electrocute you, you lose control of your character for a short while. Hack/Shoot all three of its heads to defeat it. -Trapper -A small insect or an arachnid that takes you to the Trapper Dimension, to avoid this creature, press X and sneak pass it. (In the Trapper Dimension, you can refill either your sanity, health, or magic, then exit the dimension.) -Bonethief -The creature wears the skins of people to protect itself. So annoying, and so fast. It can disguise itself in one's body, kill the disguise to reveal a Bonethief, kill it before it leap and attack you. -Smaller Guardian -A curious lack of internal organs means no way of inflicting critical damage. No obvious vulnerability. Sometimes this guardian can be trapped inside a force field and you have to cast a Dispel Magick on it to release the creature. Use a powerful weapon and enchant it and then aim at the monster's body or torso as some of you may call it, couple swings or shots at it will end its life. -Larger Guardian -This huge monster can be found in Peter's chapter, you have to go through three stages to beat this monster. ============================================================================== @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@ Walkthrough @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@ ============================================================================== Some few important things before you progress into the game: -Health Meter This meter represents LIFE ENERGY. Every time a character takes DAMAGE the lever will get lower. When it reaches zero, the character will die. -Sanity Meter KEEP THE LEVEL HIGH! or else you will hear or see things that isn't really happening and the camera angle will tilt. Your sanity level will lower when a monster sees you, run around it and start attacking. -Magick Meter The easiest way to refill your magick is to run around in circle, you need magick to cast a spell if you have enough. :::Turn on your GameCube with the Eternal Darkness mini-disc inserted::: As the game starts up, a piece from one of Edgar Allan Poe's poems. " Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering... fearing... doubting... " The scripting above is from Poe's "The Raven", although one guy sent me the whole poem of The Raven, but I feel that it isn't part of the game, but I did read the poem, intense! Thanks to those guys who gave me the answer to my question about the script. After you start a new game, Dr. Edward Roivas speaks: ........................................................ Flesh. Bone. Bound together with the oddest magickal incantation. This wretched book is where it all began so long ago. Before time, before humanity. I am Doctor Edward Roivas. I am a clinical psychologist. I am also dead. This is not my story, nor even the story of the Roivas family. It is the story of humanity. Like it or not, believe it or not as you will. Your perceptions will not change reality, but simply color it. Humanity has been on the edge of extinction for two millennia. Ignorant of so much, and dependent on so few. The Guardians grow restless Their time once again near. Whether by fate or misfortune, My family has crossed their path and they didn't take kindly to it. Their attention turns to my granddaughter, for she is the last of my line, and the last hope for humanity. ........................................................ --------------------------------Alexandra Roivas------------------------------- The game starts of in a room where you have to kill the zombies, and it turned out to be a dream. (ringing phone) A police inspector, named Legrasse, called Alexandra and told her that there is an accident with Alex's grandfather. Alexandra told him that she will be on the next flight out. Legrasse showed the body and Alexandra was in shock and Legrasse asked her if it was her grandfather, and Alexandra said it was, and he is wearing the family ring. Legrasse wanted Alexandra to find clues and the cause of her grandfather's death. "Shocked by her grandfather's mysterious death and frustrated at the incompetence of the local police, Alex vows to uncover the truth. She decides to search the mansion - the place where Edward conducted his research. If there was a tie to his past, and possibly a tie to his murderer, it would be here..." You are now in control. The only item you have right now is the Second Floor Key, and it looks very old and worn. Do not use this key on the double door at the top of the steps, or it will break. Go in the area between the two stairs and you will see a clock, ticking. Examine the clock and you get the Dresser Key. From the middle of the room, go right, through the door and you will be in a room full of books. We'll call this room the Library. If you checked one of the shelves on the west, inside Alex sees a shaky handwriting that says "3:33". Go to the northeastern part of the room and you will see a grandfather clock, examine it. You are allowed to adjust the hands, remember the 3:33?, tilt the control stick to the right and have the small hand AT 3, a little before 4, and the long hand a little after 6 until a door to a passageway opens up. Go in the secret passageway and into the room. A cut-scene showed that Alex is shocked from the look of this room. We'll call this room the Secret Room, since you opened up the secret passageway. Is that ok? Take the Gladius from the west wall and equip it. Open the book on the desk, something hits Alex and the cut-scene follows: *CHAPTER ONE* -------------------------------Pious Augustus--------------------------------- The Chosen One Ancient Persia, 26 B.C. You start out in an ancient chamber, with the east wall decorated with ancient cultures and a symbol with gold and gems on the floor. Go down the ladder and after a few steps you will see an item and a zombie come to life! Kill this zombie, 2 more will join. Grab the GRANITE BLOCK #1. Go through the door in the southwest. Two more zombies will come after you, kill them and grab the GRANITE BLOCK #2 and go through the door in the southwest. There are many zombies in this room, run around (don't run too much) and decapitate one's head off, one at a time or you'll be in for a little trouble. Once you clear up this room, take the GRANITE BLOCK #3 and go through the south door. Kill the lone zombie in this hallway and turn south. In the middle of the room is GRANITE BLOCK #4 and the final one, but, there are plenty of zombies around, protecting the stone, fend off one at a time and try to avoid trouble. Take the GRANITE BLOCK #4 in the middle of this room. Go to the north wall with the and slide each of the the colored block in their own colored slot. After you put all of the blocks in, a barred door will be unbarred. Go into the room that was barred and a lone statue stands in the middle of the room. Go up to the statue to start a training session, if you success, go into the next room ahead. A glowing symbol on the wall caught your attention, but zombies comes after you, kill them and go to the symbol, push the button and step into the glowing in the middle of the room and you will be transported to another room. In this room, you will see three pedestral, each have their own color and their own artifact. I have listed the difference between all three: Blue - Build your magickal power, and enemies explodes when they are being Ulyaoth bothered. Red - Tougher enemies, if a body part of theirs fell off, it can Chattur'gha regenerate one back. Green - Your sanity meter will play the role, danger lurks around the Xel'lotath corner. -------------------------------Alexandra Roivas------------------------------- After you finish the chapter, Alex received the TOME OF ETERNAL DARKNESS. There is a page inside a glass frame behind you, take it and use it, you will be onto the next chapter. *CHAPTER TWO* ------------------------------------Ellia------------------------------------- The Binding of the Corpse God Angkor Thom Region, Cambodia 1150 A.D. Go to the statue in the west wall and grab the necklace from it. The north passageway will be blocked. Instead go to the south into the next chamber. In this room, deads are all over the floor, go into the hallway in the east. In this hallway is full of traps! AVOID STEPPING ON THE LIGHTER PART OF THE FLOOR or you will receive damage! If you successfully made it through, go into the next chamber ahead. The door will close behind you and your sanity meter will appear! Chop this mummy's head off and once you finish him off, your sanity meter will rise. Go to the altar with the lit candles, press X to blow the RIGHT candle, and part of the door will open, then take the Bronze Necklace. Go back through the hallway full of traps, and back to the first room. Place the Bronze Necklace on the statue and the blocked door to the north will be unblocked. Go north into the room, then west in another hallway full of traps, avoid stepping on the LIGHTER PART of the floor, or you will activate the trap. Go into the room and the door will close behind you, leaving you to face off against a red zombie, chop his head off with your Short Sword and keep hacking him down, finish him off. Go up to the candles and extinguish the left and right candles, by pressing Y and X. Go south, through another set of traps in the hallway, run through and once you get in the middle part, turn east and you will find a Blowgun here, take it, then you fall through the trap. You have fallen into a secret passage in the temple, but your sword has been shattered to pieces. There are two zombies in this reoom and a guard, DON'T KILL THE GUARD, because if you do, you won't have your Short Sword repaired. Go through the hallway, avoid stepping on the LIGHTER part of the floor and go into the next room, kill the two zombies in here and go east, this is a long hallway full of traps, just RUN through smoothly, avoid stepping on the LIGHTER PART of the floor. In the next room, there are different types of zombies and they attack each other, let them fight and finish off whoever is down, this way, you don't have to worry about wasting ammos for your blowgun. ------EMAIL FROM EDUARDO Actually, the broken sword is not useless as you said on your faq. Right after you fall to the ground and your short sword gets broken, pick it up and quickly slay the two zombies before they kill the guy on one corner of the room. Fight the temptation to kill him yourself and instead talk to him. He will fix the sword for you. Go north into the next room and watch the cut-scene about the Mantorok and a mysterious man want you to hold his heart and guard it well. After the cut-scene, go up to the statue in front of Mantorok and take the Metal Staff. Go back to the room where the different zombies attack each other and the room before the long hallway of traps. Place the Metal Staff in the slot and it opens the door behind Mantorok, go all the way back into that room and go around Mantorok and into the next room. Go through the door in this room to end the chapter. -------------------------------Alexandra Roivas------------------------------- As soon as you end the chapter, the candles lit up in the north wall. Go over to it and inspect the table. There is a picture frame behind it showing the sun rising on the left side and darkness on the right, press A and X to entinguish the middle and right candles. A secret opens below it and grab the Message Tube and open it. You found a chapter page titled "Suspicions of Conspiracy". Watch the cut-scene, then use the chapter page. *CHAPTER THREE* -----------------------------------Anthony------------------------------------ Suspicions of Conspiracy Amiens, France 814 A.D. You start off in a cathedral, go to the eastern part of this room and open the casket, inside is a dead body. One of the monks will give you the Scramasax and tell you to find the Bishop and warn him. Go up the stairs in the northwest corner. Examine the statues, does those names look familiar? Go to the end of this walkway, the floor turns into many screaming faces and the hand opens up, revealing the Tome of Eternal Darkness on its palm, grab it and watch the cut-scene. You will be back in the first floor again, go back upstairs. Go to the west wall and grab the Blue Urn from the bookcase and use it, you will find a Magickal Rune. Go to the east and grab the Circle of Power from the middle desk. Go behind the desk and examine the bookcase in the middle and move the book, this opens up a secret passage to the basement. Once in the basement, a transparent zombie with a rune inside its body comes after you, attack this beast and finish him off while grabbing the rune. Two more zombies comes to life at the end of this hallway. Go into the next room and take a good look on Anthony's face, is he turning into a zombie? A monk tries to torch the zombies away, but he couldn't do it, run over and grab the torch and burn the remaining zombies and save the monk told you about the bishop and then he gave you the Two-Edged Sword. Go north and pick up the Broken Green Urn, there are 2 more around the area. Mix them together and go through the door in the north. A zombie wonders around at the bottom of the stairs, kill this zombie with one touch of your torch and grab the rune from his see-through body. Go back up and grab the Codex (Magormor) then through the door at the bottom of the stairs. The mysterious power has turned Anthony into worse. 3 Zombies in this room but 2 will squared off at each other, bun them all and pick up the Red Urn and another Codex (Ulyaoth) and torch the tapestry on the west wall and go through the door. Torch the lone zombie in this hallway and go through another door. A limping monk went into a secret passage, who is he? why is he up this far in the basement? Pick up the codex on the bookcase in the east and grab the scroll from the table, this is a spell scroll titled "Enchant Item". Assign the Enchant Item spell to one of the buttons and use it on the Green Urn and the Blue Urn as well. Go back to the room where you burn the tapestry and fill the Blue and Green Urn with water. Go back to the room where the limping monk was. On the floor is an iron plate with three circles, use all 3 urns on them and the secret passage will open up again, allowing you to go through. Run down the hallway through another door. In this room, you will meet up with the Bishop, but he doesn't look good. Use your Two-Edged Sword and chop his head off and the two other zombies as well. The Bishop dropped something! Pick it up and you receive the Bishop's Key, run back to the church, but one of the hallways brings out a little monster, called Trapper. Sneak past them using the X button. Go all the way back to the ladder into the cathedral. But, before doing so, use the Enchant Spell on the Two-Edged Sword, because you will fight a big monster. To immediately put this beast to history, go around him to avoid the bolt he shoots at you. Hacks his head a couple time to end his life and the sealed door will go away. Go down the step and go to the north wall and use the Bishop's Key on the door. It is too late to warn or save Charlemagne, however a monk talk strangely and a creature jumps out of its body. This ends the chapter for Anthony. -------------------------------Alexandra Roivas------------------------------- Do you still have that Second Floor key? Good, now, go back to the main room and up the stairs, use the key on the double door. The key broke into half, and I'm sure you know what to do. Use the Enchant Spell on it to fix the key back together. You have entered the second floor hallway, go through the door in the east, ignore the moving head. There isn't much to do in the room for now, grab the .38 Revolver ammo on the floor next to the bed. Go in the bathroom in the northwest corner of the room and pick up the page and it is from the Journal of Maximillian Roivas. Leave the bathroom then the bedroom into the hallway. Run to the other side of the hallway and go through the door on your right into another bedroom, we'll call this Bedroom #2. Take the ammunition from the dresser and turn around and take a look at the picture on the wall, there is a chapter page stashed behind the picture frame. Grab it and go onto the next chapter! *CHAPTER FOUR* ------------------------------------Karim------------------------------------- The Gift of Forever Persia, 565 A.D. Go down the ladder in the west side of this room. You will be in the room with the walkway to the screaming faces and a large hand, take the Tome of Eternal Darkness from the hand. You will be back in the same room, but many zombies comes to life, kill them all. Climb back down the ladder again. Grab the white statuette at the corner of this hallway and continue east. A transparent zombie holds a rune, put him out of the mystery and grab the rune from him, then climb up the ladder. You appear in a room with three large circular designs on the floor with a shrine in the middle. You hear a sound when you step on one of the circular designs, its telling you that you must weigh something on it, would the statue be a help? sure, place the statue on the circuar design and go to the green barrier with the rune symbol on it, you automatically grab the rune and then go down the ladder. Run down the narrow hallway and fight off three zombies. Take the codex with Xel'lolath scribbled on it. Grab the statue and go back up the ladder. Place the statue on one of the last two circular platforms and stand on the last one, be careful now! Four Trappers has been hiding in the elevator and are now skittling around in the room. Use your Chakram wisely and kill them. Stand in the elevator and you will go down. Dead bodies are are over this hallway, one of the bodies has a Tulwar sword stabbed through the back, grab the sword and you'll be able to use the Dual Tulwar now! The dead body has comes to life, destroy him and a strange little monster has come out of its body, put this monster's life to an end and then go through the door. Destroy the enemies in here and grab the "Recover" Spell Scroll from the floor in the northwest area. Go through the door in the east. Kill all of the zombies in here and go through the door on the left and prepare for a battle. Its that beast again, but its transparent and you can see the rune. After you defeat it, grab the rune from the ledge in the south, exit out of this room and go to the yellow barrier in the hallway, it will vanish. Climb down the ladder and a cut-scene will occur. After the cut-scene go right and go in the room. Hey, isn't this like that Excalibur sword where you have to pull it out of the stone? Pull the Ram Dao out of the pedestral and own it! But...you just have activated a long and deadly battle, more than 10 zombies, plus 2 large zombies and 2 little critters, annoying battle with the Ram Dao as it takes a while to swing your sword again, but it can kill a small zombie quickly. One of the large zombies holds a rune. Kill all of the enemies in this room and the locked door will open up. Go back in the hallway and grab the Narokath rune, and you discovered a new spell! Recover! Go back up to the room where you got the Recover spell from and enchant the Ram Dao to green, not blue, and this will unlock the bar that blocks the door. Go through the door and you will end up in a long hallway. Fight off a couple of zombies and go up the first ladder in this hallway. In this room, kill of the Trappers or if you need to replenish your meters, just walk up to them. Pick up the Ruby Effigy on the platform next to the brazier. It is important to pick up this item. Go back into the hallway and at the end will be a pile of debris, climb over them and at the end of the hallway will be another one of that huge beast, kill him with your Ram Dao. Go down the ladder. The gate blocks you from proceding ahead, inspect the sculpture and use the Tome of Eternal Darkness in the shrine with the bones. This raise the gate, grab the book and continue east in this hallway. You will enter another class of zombies and big zombies and leaving the huge beast last. Kill them all and an item appears on the pedestral, grab it and this ends the chapter. Watch the cut-scene. ------------------------------Alexandra Roivas-------------------------------- You appear back in the secret room, go back out to the main hall and go through either one of the two doors in the west. Inspect the door in the south and you'll see a green insignia and a slot. Enchant your Gladius to the green alignment and slide it in the slot. This removes the plaque. Open the door and except the shelves, you'll see a Spice Jar, take it. Open the jar and you found a Chapter Page, and then use it. *CHAPTER FIVE* -----------------------------Maximillian Roivas------------------------------- The Lurking Horror Rhode Island, 1760 A.D. You appear in the future Bedroom #2, but this is Max's. Grab the ammo from the desk and head out through the door in the south. Go to the door in the west, the door CLOSEST to you. You will be in the servant's room, grab the ammunition from the desk, and talk to the servant if you want to. Go back out in the hallway and run to the farthest door to the east, while picking up the ammo on one of the tables. You appear in a bedroom, grab the codex that is on top of the fireplace. Talk to the servent if you want to, then grab the letter from the nightstand. There is nothing else to do in the room, head back out in the hallway and go through the door and down the stairs to the kitchen (go through either one of the west doors). Grab the codex from the countertop, then head to the cabinet and grab the pistol ammunition, then head into the small room in the south. Grab the Pump Handle here. Head back out into the Main Hall and go through the door in the northeast. You appear in a fancy dining room, inspect the frame above the fireplace, and you will select a alignment, I don't know if picking one will affect the game? I picked the red symbol and it opened the path. Go through the secret passageway and into a secret room. There are two weapons in this room, take both the Flintlock Pistol and the Sabre. You now have Dual Flintlocks, and perform the "akimbo" style, which I don't know how that goes, and a blade. Grab the Reveal spell from atop the boxes in the northwest corner. Then grab the book. A beast drops from a portal into the Main Hall, a letter dropped out from the book, Maximillian picks up the letter. Exit out of this room through the secret passageway. Be careful! The servant in this dining room is attacking you! Hack him down and a Bonethief monster jumps out through his body, defeat this monster and Maximillian will perform a new move. You might want to ENCHANT your sword before you exit out of this room into the hallway. Three slices should kill the Horror. Go up the stairs into the Second Floor hallway and head left to the end of the corridor. SEARCH behind the small countertop on the left and you will find a letter stashed behind it. Read it and you receive the Basement Key, go back down to the main hall, but you will have to fight the Horror beast again, but this is important. Defeat the Horror to get your last alignment rune. Go to the east and stand in front of the wall with the symbol on it, use the OPPOSITE alignment on it using the Reveal spell. Use the Basement Key on this door and go through. In the basement, there are two zombies. There is an ammunition for the Flintlock along the crates in the north wall, pick up the "Damage Field" spell next to the water pump. Use the Pump Handle on the water pump to drain the water. Climb down to the second part of this basement. Defeat the lone zombie here and take the Bankorok rune, and you discovered the Damage Field spell! Proceed ahead and on the balcony, overlooking the city, then go back out to the stairs and the Bankorok seal will fade away. Continue down the stairs and heal yourself, sanity and health. Boss Battle: You will face a Guardian of your alignment. It doesn't attack or run/walk around, instead it casts magic spell. Flintlock Pistol is the best weapon for this type of battle, 5-10 shots of this gun kills this monster. But you have to be CLOSE to the monster to be able to finish it off quickly. The beast will sometimes cast zombie out into the field to go after you. After the battle ends, watch the cut-scene. Xel'lotath path: Shoot at it with your Flintlocks, you can enchant it with the Chattur'gha alignment if you want. Ulyaoth path: Shoot at it with your Flintlocks, you can enchant it with the Xel'lotath alignment if you want. Chattur'gha path: Shoot at it with your Flintlocks, you can enchant it with the Ulyaoth alignment if you want, plus, I feel that this guardian for this type of path is stronger than the other two. -------------------------------Alexandra Roivas------------------------------- Alex returns back in the secret room behind the library, exit out of the room and then the library too, into the Main Hall. Go up the stairs and turn right into Bedroom #1. Head over to the dresser in the north and use the Reveal Invisible spell on it, using the opposite alignment of the alignment on the dresser. Once you perform the spell, this removes the alignment and reveals the lock. You have the Dresser Key, right? Use this key on the dresser. Yay! Finally something for protection in this scary mansion, and a Chapter page too. Use the Chapter page to move onto the next chapter. *CHAPTER SIX* ------------------------------Dr. Edwin Lindsey------------------------------- A Journey into Darkness Angkor Thom Region, Cambodia, 1983 A.D. Watch the cut-scene at the beginning of this chapter, and Pious has released a guardian of your alignment on you, it is a bird-like monster. Shoot at it with your Shotgun, ONLY when its wings are open and spreaded out. Search the middle of the room and use your Archaeologist brush to clear out the dust. You have discovered a Bronze Bracelet, grab it and use it on the statue in the western par tof this room. This open the passage to the south. Go through it. You will end up in a room with a walkway and a large hand at the end, holding the Tome of Eternal Darkness. Grab the book and you will return in the same room again, go through the hallway. Two zombies in this next room, but they will fight each other, use the Kukri to finish one out and kill the other. Go east, into the hallway and use your pistol on the Trapper in here. In the middle of this hallway is a Metal Bracelet laying on a ledge, grab it and continue down to the end of this hallway until you see a cobweb in the corner. Use the Archaeologist brush on it, you will find a tablet scribbled "Tier" on it, take it, then proceed into the next room. This room contains a Horror, but it is blocked in a shield, grab the Bronze Medal sitting close to it and then go back to the first room. In the first room, place the Bronze Medal on the statue and this opens another passage, but up north this time. Enter this part of the temple and take the Silver Bracelet from in front of Naja, a snake-headed statue and this activate a trap. There is no way out...hope you have that Metal Bracelet with you, use it on the statue and this opens the way out. Go east, into the hallway of traps, just RUN down and you'll meet up with some zombies, kill them and inspect the cobweb in the corner, a tablet with "Nethlek" scribbled on it, take it. Go into the next room. 4 zombies patrols this room, kill them all, one of them holds a rune. Go all the back to the room with the Horror stuck inside a shield, since you got the Nethlek rune, you can create a new spell with Redgormer and Nethlek in it and use the alignment that is strong against this shield. This removes the shield that holds the Horror, defeat the Horror and enter the hallway up north, run through the traps and in the middle of the hallway, use your Achaeologist brush on the cobweb and grab the scroll. This is a Dispel Magick scroll. Across from where you got the scroll is another statue. Use the Silver Necklace and Silver Bracelet on the statue, and this open the secret passage behind you. Go down the stairs, killing zombies along the way, one of them holds a rune. There will be a bird-like monster at the bottom, kill it with your shotgun, only when its wings are spreaded out, then proceed into the next hallway. Turn north through the trap and into the room with the Horror and a red shield with the pedestral in the middle, cast the Dispel Magick using the strongest alignment on it and this will take away the shield. Then go to the cobweb in the northern part of the room and use the Archaeologist brush on it, take the Necklace. Go into the hallway to the east, through the trap, but it also has poisonous gas that filled the second half. Just RUN through it into the next room. Two red zombies secures this room, kill them both. Then use the Dispel Magick using the strongest alignment on the shield. Run through the hallway to the south into the next room. This room also has a shield, use the green alignment to get rid of it and kill the zombie in here as well. There is a small basin in the south of this room, use the Necklace in the basin and the acid will help clean the necklace, and then the necklace turns into a Gold Necklace! Go west and run through the hallway of traps into the next room. Once you enter this room, it looks like someone is actually standing there, but its just a statue. There is another statue across from it holding an item. Step onto the circular platform on the floor behind the standing statue, and RUN and SNATCH the item that the goddess statue was holding. Go back through the trap, into the room, then through another trap, but stop in the middle of this hallway and QUICKLY use the Gold Necklace and Gold Bracelet on the statue, why quickly? because there is poisonous gas filling this hallway up, lowering your health. Once you place both items on, exit out of this hallway into the secret passageway behind you. Go down the stairs, fighting off a pair of zombies and a Horror. Proceed down until you enter the next room, turn and go north, through the traps into the next room with a large face of a statue on the floor, kill off the zombies here and inspect the cobweb on the side of the face, get rid of it with your Archaeologist brush, you will find a rune with "Aretak" scribbled on it. Go west through the traps into the next room. This room is filled with red zombies, kill all of them and go south through another hallway of traps and into the next room. This room holds two zombie and another one holding a rune inside its body. Kill all three and grab the rune from one of them. Go east and run through another hallway of traps into the next room. This room is also filled with zombies, kill all of them and grab the spell from the middle of the room. Go all the way back upstairs and then turn south, then west. Stop in the middle of this hallway and examine the wall where the purple shield was. Use the Summon Trapper spell here. Send the Trapper into the small hole, make the Trapper to cross the bridge and stand on the purple symbol on the other side. This opens a door, take control of Edwin again and grab the Mantorok rune from behind you. The debris explodes and a Horror comes after you, take a good aim at it with your Shotgun and kill it. Go into the room and kill the other Horror. Go all the way back downstairs, through all the rooms and hallways into the very last room with the huge Mantorok. Watch the cut-scene and enter the door behind Mantorok, and watch another cut-scene to end this chapter. -------------------------------Alexandra Roivas------------------------------- At the end of Edwin's last cut-scene, a scientist look-a-like hid the heart of the Mantorok in the bookcase and this place looks like a library. Go to the library and look at one of the bookcases with "The Demon and the Khmer" as the title of one of the books. Search behind it and you will find a heart inside a glass dome, take it. Go into the Main Hall and up the stairs, turn left and go to the stained glass window with some kind of a shield. Use the Dispel Magick on it and you will see an object float in the air, take it and you found the next Chapter page, titled "Heresy!", use it. *CHAPTER SEVEN* ---------------------------------Paul Luther---------------------------------- Heresy! Amiens, France, 1485 A.D. You start out in the cathedral where you were playing as Anthony..but...it has changed a lot. Go inside and run down towards the casket and a cut-scene will play. After the cut-scene, you are taken back in a cell. Search the painting and grab the Emerald from it and another cut-scene will occur. A monk wants you to meet him in the bell tower, go through the door. You will be in a chamber of statues of other dead people you've played as, except for Edwin. Take the book from the hand and you will be taken back in the same spot. Go through the door again and run straight to the west, do not go in the cathedral yet. Go up the stairs through the door, run straight across and ignore the zombie, and through another door. Go up the steps and ring the bell. The monk will come, talk to him and he will give you the key to the Old Tower. Exit out of this bell tower area and enter the cathedral, follow the red carpet towards the end and turn left and go through the door at the end. Search the closet in the room to find a Podium Key. Open the chest to get the Crossbow, then leave the room. On your way down, grab the torch from the wall on the left. Stop in the middle of this red carpet and get on the podium, inspect it and use the Podium Key on it. You found the first page of Andrew's Diary inside. Go north and down the stairs, turn left and go through the door in the corner. Pick up the quiver on the floor then grab the Book of Reliquaries. Go around the hallway and pick up another quiver of Crossbow Bolts by the barrels and grab the Mace across from it. Go back upstairs and once you reach on the main red carpet, go right and use the Old Tower Key on the door. Inside, a Bonethief will attack a monk. Kill the monk and the Bonethief inside as well and in the east of this room on a table lies a scroll. This scroll is titled "Shield" and you already have the runes for it. Go upstairs and another Bonethief lurks here, kill it and search the bookcase in the corner in front of the stairs to get a Sheet of Music, and page 2 of Andrew's diary from the desk. Go back downstairs and don't go through the door yet, instead there is another door in here, go through the rows of bench up north and through this door. Inside, you will see the remaining of Anthony's body, hes still alive!! Use the Shield on you and enchant your Mace and finish him off! After the battle, you will receive a red ruby and the Two-Edged Sword. Exit out of this Old Tower area back into the Main Hall with the red carpeting. Go to the piano to the left of the podium and play the piano, by pressing A, B, Y, X, B, Y, A. This opens the cabinet to the right of the podium. Grab the Five-Point Circle of Power when you are there. Go down the steps behind the podium again and head straight down and turn left into a wine cellar. Check the second wine from the right and this open a secret room. Make sure you use Shield and enchant your two-edged sword, then proceed into the secret room. Inside will be a Horror, after you defeat it, you will receive a Sapphire. Go to the pedestral and place all three rubies in the indentations. This opens a secret stairway to the basement. Three zombies in this hallway, kill them, then go through the door at the end of this short hallway. One giant zombie...holy mackeral, this zombie is HUGE! but he holds a rune inside him, along with 3 other zombies, kill all of them, especially the huge one, but the easiest way to kill the big zombie is with one touch of your torch. Go through the door in the west and down the stairs through another door. In this room, two Horrors of different alignment will fight each other, don't worry, just let them fight it out and beat the winner, but fighting two Horrors in the same room would be a pain. Pick up the quiver of bolts here and go through the door in the west, through this long hallway into the next room. Two red zombies patrols this room, kill them both and keep continuing into the next hallway. Two zombies in this hallway, kill them and head into the room ahead. A lone zombie secures this room, finish him off and grab page 3 of Andrew's diary in front of the shrine and a Pargon codex from the ledge to the right. Go all the way back to the bell tower with all three pages of Andrew's diary. Talk to the monk when you get there, he will give you the Sacrifical Knife. Are you out of breath yet? because you are going to go all the way back to the room where the two Horrors fought each other. Oh great! At one corner of this room is an effigy of a monk, slide the Sacrifical Blade in it and this slides the wall, revealing a secret door behind you. Go through the door and you will see a barrier with five different signs on the floor. Create a NEW spell using the five-points. Set it up like this - any alignment, Pargon, Pargon, Redgormor, Nethlek - and you will create a powerful Dispel Magick. Perform the spell and this removes the barrier. Go around the room until you see a body on a platform. Inspect it and watch the cut-scene after it. Two Bonethieves attack you, put an end to their life and then go back around the room again into where you used the Sacrifical Knife. Go through the door that you hasn't gone through yet, which is the northeast door, where the monk just went through. Go through the hallway and through the door, head down the stairs and go through another door. Watch the cut-scene and the end for Paul's chapter. -------------------------------Alexandra Roivas-------------------------------- After the chapter, you receive a note from Edward. If you read it, Edward order you to look for the 88 keys to continue on the journey. Does he mean to find 88 keys? or 88 keys in a ring? or the 88 keys of the piano? Exit out of the library and across the Main Hall into the Dining Room through the north door. Stand in front of the piano and play the same key that you played when you were Paul Luther - A, B, Y, X, B, Y, A - then the top of the piano opens, revealing the next chapter page inside. Use it whenever you are ready to go into the next chapter. CHAPTER EIGHT -------------------------------Roberto Bianchi-------------------------------- The Forbidden City Middle East, 1460 A.D. After the cut-scene, you found yourself in some kind of a underground temple beneath the monument. Run to the end of the narrow corridor and climb up the ladder, run across the room and go down the ladder. Go around the corner and climb up another ladder. Talk to the guy here and do his survey. Take the crossbow bolts near the ladder and grab the Saif near the ladder on the other side. Then go down the ladder. You will enter a room with a little puzzle. There is a lever in one of the corners in this room, pull it to raise the first gate, this one has one blue zombie after you, kill it and go in the cell, pull this lever and the gate across from it will raise, releasing two red zombies, kill them as well, then pull the lever in this cell. The front gate will raise halfway while the gate ahead will raise all the way up. Go through and climb up the ladder. Grab the crossbow bolts from near the ladder and the Crossbow sitting on the ledge in this room. Survey the site in the north where the large gong hangs in the air. Go across the room and head down the ladder. You will be transported to the part where you pick up the Tome of Eternal Darkness from the hand again and a new addition, the statue of Paul Luther. Back in the same room again, go down the ladder and several Trappers patrols this hallway, sneak all the way to the end and climb up the ladder. In this room will be a Gatekeeper, a zombie and a trapper. Kill the Gatekeeper first, then the zombie or the Trapper. Grab the Summon Zombie scroll in the middle of this room. This scroll is titled "Summon Zombie". Climb down the ladder in the south of this room and fight with some Horrors. Run to the end of the hallway and through the door. Inside, a dumb red zombie walk into the trap, and got pancaked. So..you know what NOT TO DO, don't go in that trap. But...instead use the Summon Zombie spell and summon a zombie, walk your zombie and act dumb and walk into the trap, hey! this zombie isn't dumb! he just raised the gate, allowing you to move on! Go down the ladder, you will see a Gatekeeper patrolling this hallway. Kill this enemy and any other creature that it summoned. Continue down and watch the cut-scene. Pick up this Essence of Ulyaoth and a Ruby Effigy if you got it as Karim, then survey this area before you move on. Go back to the room where the dumb red zombie was. Go through the door to the left of the trap. In here, four blue zombies lurks in here, kill them all and then climb down the ladder. Couple Trappers skitters around in this room, sneak past them and through the door to the left. A Horror and a zombie secures this room, kill them both then stand in front of the pedestral in front of the entrance where you came in. Use the five-point Reveal Invisible spell on it (Any alignment, Pargon, Redgormor, Narokath, Pargon) and this makes the path visible to get to the center of this room. Pick up the Forgotten Corridor Key on the stone block. Exit out of this room and before you go up the ladder, grab the Sapphire Effigy on the left. Once you are back in the hallway, a quiver of bolts sits on the ledge to the left of the ladder, grab it if you want to. Go through the door on the left (not the double door) and create a new five-point Damage Field spell (Any alignment, Pargon, Redgormor, Bankorok, Pargon) and perform it in here. Survey the room and the slaves will go after you, once defeated, a Bonethief hid inside each one's body, kill them as well. Once you are done, exit this room and prepare another new spell, a five-point Shield spell (Mantorok, Pargon, Santak, Bankorok, Pargon) and go through the double door using the Forbidden Corridor Key. Run through the hallway, and don't stop, until you go through the door at the end. Go in this large chamber with a pit in the middle. To the right is a rope, target it and chop it down with your Saif and this drops the bridge down. Two worms will spring up, with one swing of your Saif will kill them, then continue to cross the bridge and pull the lever at the end. Survey the area on the bridge and this is the last survey you have to do. Go all the way back to the beginning to end the chapter. -------------------------------Alexandra Roivas-------------------------------- In the secret room, go to the part ACROSS from the desk, there is a poster on the wall, survey the area there. There is a chapter page titled "A War to End All Wars" tucked behind the poster. Use it to go into the next chapter. *CHAPTER NINE* ---------------------------------Peter Jacobs---------------------------------- A War to End All Wars Amiens, France 1916 A.D. You are in the same cathedral when you were Anthony and Paul Luther, just a little change, but the rooms are the same. Behind you is a letter from a soldier waiting to be sent home. Grab this and head north to the altar. On the altar is a Sealed Envelope, open the envelope and you found the Soldier's Orders. Run south through the aisle and through the door at the end. Go right and pass the medical supplies here to the door. Run across the room and through another door, on one of the crates is another one of Pvt. Jackson's letters, grab this and head back down to the ground floor. Go up to the guard who is standing in front of the door, give him the Soldier's Orders and he will move out of the way. Go through the door here and pick up the Revolver in here. When you leave, you will be transported to the chamber where you have to take the book from the hand again, and a new addition in the chamber as well, a statue of Roberto Bianchi. Exit the room where you got the Revolver and go into the first room, but be careful, couple of Bonethieves and even the hospital staffs are after you, either stun them with your Flash Pan or run down to the altar and pick up the Shotgun on it and go down the stairs behind it. Go take the first left and through the door, pick up the ammunition for your rifle in here then leave the room. Run around the hallway and pick up two more ammunitions for your rifle here. Go through the door in the south and then take a left through another door. You will be in the boiler room, examine the boiler and turn the wheel to start, then go through the door to the west, but something is on the other side of the door, but what is it? Hmm...summon a Trapper and send the critter through the hole in the wall and go right, you will see a dead soldier fallen against the door, target him and send him away. Try the door again, Aha! Now you got through. In here, grab the Seven-Point Circle of Power from the pedestral. Exit this room and the boiler room as well, run across this hall, what used to be a wine cellar, through another door. Pick up the rifle ammunition on the crate here. Go to the wall and examine it. Here lies a fusebox, but its missing a fuse, hmm, you have to be lucky to find the fuse....did I say lucky? Why, yes I did! Use the Lucky Penny on the fusebox and this gives power to the circuit. Go all the way back to the first room, but run to the Old Tower, which is to the right. Avoid the Bonethieves here and go up the stairs, in here you will find another ammunition for your rifle and the Two-Edged sword. Go back down the stairs and kill the Bonethieves here. Go into the first room and head for the piano, grab the Sheet of Music that is sitting on top if it, then play the piano by pressing the buttons that was shown on the sheet (A, B, Y, X, B, Y, A). This triggers the cabinet doors to open, go to it and grab the Door Handle out of it. Go all the way to the left until you stand in front of the seven-points sign on the wall, use the seven-point Reveal Invisible spell on it and make the door visible. Use the Door Handle on it and then open the door. In this next room, grab the two boxes on the crate for your Revolver and another one across from them for your Shotgun. Climb down and go through the door at the end of this corridor. Couple zombies comes after you in this room, some hides Bonethief in their body. Go through the door in the north and down the stairs and prepare yourself for another battle. Two zombies and a Horror walk around in this room, kill them all and go through the door to the west. Two Trappers patrol this hallway, either go into the Trapper Dimension to replenish your health/sanity/magick or sneak pass them into the next room. A lone Bonethief awaits you here, kill it and pick up the Soldier's Letter on the floor. Go across the room adn through the door, through this corridor into the next room, a zombie and a trapper here, kill them and grab the Binding Hall Key here. Go all the way back to where you fought the two zombies and a Horror, take the door to the south. Go around the balcony here and pick up the Magickal Elixir on the stone. Exit out of here and use the Binding Hall key on the east door, go through it, and there will be three zombies in this hallway. Kill them and go through the door at the end, down the steps and at the end is a spell scroll on the wall titled "Magickal Attack". Prepare yourself before you go through the door here. You will fight a Greater Guardian and one of the longest battles in the game so far: ------------------------------XEL'LOTATH PATH---------------------------------- First Battle: After the Greater Guardian casts its green bolts on you, move out of the way and then attack back by casting a three-point Magickal Attack of an alignment STRONGEST against the Guardian's alignment. Keep doing it until he move the green barrier closer to you. Second Battle: The green barrier got closer and he now casts 3 zombies to go after you, this is easy, after the THIRD ZOMBIE appear, cast a five-point Magickal Attack spell of an alignment STRONGEST against his. Keep doing it until he move the green barrier closer between you and him. Third Battle: He will shoots a powerful green bolt at you from above, keep running/walking out of the way until he stops for a while, this is a good time to cast a three-point Magickal Attack on him, and keep running from the green bolt he shoots at you until he tires again. Do the same process until you defeat him. ---------------------------------ULYAOTH PATH---------------------------------- First Battle: The Guardian will shoots three energy or blue balls at you. Run around and avoid being hit by the balls, or you can shoot them off if you want to. When the Guardian rest, perform a Magick Attack of three-point with Xel'lotath, do this a couple time until he perform the next battle. Second Battle: He will now raise the deads, this is just the same battle strategy as the one on the Xel'lotath path, cast a Magickal Attack of five-point with Xel'lotath, only do this when the third zombie fully appear, keep doing this until the guardian make his next move. Third Battle: This is even more dangerous, the guardian uses its feet to squash you like a spider...I wanna see Eight Legged Freaks, anyway, run around until he stops stomping, this is the good time to cast a three-point Magick Attack with the Xel'lotath alignment. -------------------------------CHATTUR'GHA PATH------------------------------- First Battle: This path against the guardian is the toughest! The guardian shoots out energy balls and if you get too close to the enemy, it will use its tongue to damage you or its claws too. After he stop shooting energy balls, quickly perform a Magickal Attack with a three-point Ulyaoth, do this a couple times until he plan out his next battle strategy. Second Battle: Same second battle as the one in the Xel'lotath and Ulyaoth path, after the third zombie show up, cast a five-point Magickal Attack with the Ulyaoth alignment, keep doing this until he begin his final battle. Third Battle: The guardian will now squash you like a mosquito with its huge claws. When he get tired from doing this, this is a good time to perform a Magickal Attack of three-point with the Ulyaoth alignment, do this a couple times to end its life. Take the essence and this ends the chapter. Watch the cut-scene. -------------------------------Alexandra Roivas------------------------------- You found the Lucky Penny in the back of Peter's chapter. Leave this room and go into the library and a ghost appears, asking for help. As you go and talk to her, she says she can't get the blood out...out of what? Grab the Basement Key and exit out of the library into the Main Hall. Once here, use the Basement Key on the north door and go down. Take a left when you reach the floor and you will see a Shotgun mounted on the wall, take it. Go all the way to the right and open the fuse box on the wall, use your Lucky Penny on it and this will light up one of the rooms upstairs. Go all the way to the second floor and turn left at the T-intersection and go through the door STRAIGHT AHEAD, not the one on the right. You will appear in another bathroom, grab the journal on the chest. Examine the sink and open the cabinet, inside is a Chapter page, use it to proceed into the next story. *CHAPTER TEN* ------------------------------Dr. Edward Roivas-------------------------------- A Legacy of Darkness Rhode Island, 1952 A.D. You start out in the middle of the library, take the Historical Journal on the fireplace mantle. Go in the back of the library and a ghost of Maximillian Roivas will appear, watch the cut-scene, when its done, pick up the Magick Pool spell on the chair. Don't adjust the clock yet, instead go to the Dining Room and grab the Sabre mounted on the wall, exit the Dining Room and head upstairs into what was Maximillian's Room and grab another section of the Historical Journal. Head back downstairs and in the library, in front of the grandfather clock, inspect the book and you will find the Hour Hand inside and the Minute Hand in the other one. Go in the secret room and pick up the book and at least 4 ammunitions here, Edward is one dangerous man. It is wise to enchant your sword, leave this room and into the library, you will see a monster that sucks blood from a servant like a vampire, hey, we'll call this new monster Vampire. The servant has become one of them, chop her head off with your sabre and pick up the bottom half of the key on the floor around the broken vase. Go into bedroom to the right of the T-intersection upstairs, a Vampire continues his killing spree, but SAVE THIS SERVANT! He will give you the key to the gun cabinet if you save him. There are some ammunitions laying around here, pick them up and head for the gun cabinet! Use the key on the gun cabinet and grab this powerful Elephant Gun with the strongest kick in the shoulder. The Vampire will come in the room soon, so enchant the sabre and hack it in the head a couple times until it runs away. Equip the Elephant Gun and go downstairs, the vampire is still on its spree, but this time, the good position would be to wait in front of the library door, facing the basement door up north, when you see the Vampire, SHOOT IT with this amazing gun and the vampire will drop the Top Half of the key. Mix the key together and it will become the Broken Basement Key. Enchant the key and it will become the Basement Key. Enchant your sabre and use the basement key, then go down. In the basement, you will be battling the vampire. Before battling the monster, take a couple swings on the gravestone thing in the well so that way the vampire won't replenish its health. Battle the vampire alone with your enchanted sabre and take a couple good hacks at it until its defeated. Finish it off. Ammunitions are everywhere in the basement, take them all and the double shotgun on the wall. Grab the Summon Horror spell scroll on the bookcase. Go down the ladder in the well. Cast a Shield spell and enchant your weapon, go all the way down the stairs and at the base, kill the two Horrors with your Shotgun. Go down the stairs and kill another Horror here and the Lesser Guardian. Once you kill them both, go through the double door. In this weird room, walk across the small bridge and go to either one of the blue switches to turn on the transporter. Step into it and you will be on one of the towers in the city. After placing the runes in or the alignment, you'll be transported into a room and defeat different type of monster you've faced before, such as Trapper, Horror, Lesser Guardian, Zombie, etc. and pull the lever in the back of the room. I've summarized how the arrays thing worked out from left to right: 1st: Pargon 2nd: Redgormor 3rd: Pargon 4th: Pargon 5th: Alignment (Red beat green, green beat blue, blue beat red) 6th: Pargon 7th: Pargon 8th: Nethlek 9th: Pargon Once all of the arrays are completed and the nine-point circle of power is completed, it is time to leave the place, exit out of this chamber and the other chamber as well, go up the long stairs back towards the basement. A cut-scene will occur at the middle of the stairs. This ends the chapter. -------------------------------Alexandra Roivas------------------------------- You will automatically receive a note from Edward that was in the book. Exit out of this room to the basement. Grab the Pickax in between the barrels, you have to search the area though, Go all the way back upstairs to the second floor and turn left Examine the wall, you will notice that it isn't even with the hallway. Use the Pickax here and enter the secret room. Use the Dispel Magick spell in the middle of the room using the alignment against it to remove the barrier in the middle. Pick up the Stethoscope and a page from Maximillian Roivas' Journal. Go all the way back to the basement, but watch out for Bonethieves and Zombies. Go to the safe and use the Stethoscope on it. *CHAPTER ELEVEN* --------------------------------Michael Edwards------------------------------- Ashes to Ashes Middle East, 1991 A.D. You start out in a room with the monument in the center where Roberto got cemented, he gave you the essence, and two effigies if you collected them as Roberto and Karim.

Go back down the ladder and continue down to the last ladder in the corridor and in this room, place the staff in the hole. You get to control the staff and burn the two buildings in the model then the big one in the middle and this opens a secret passageway. Once you go down, you will be in the chamber where you have to take the Tome of Eternal Darkness from the hand. Once you appear in the same room again, go down the new passageway. Inside, three Trappers patrols this room, kill them all with your pistol. Go up the ladder at the end, in this room, two Horrors will attack you, use the assault rifle and take a good couple of shots at their head. Go down the ladder at the other side of the room. You will appear in a hallway, go pass the ladder and at the end, equip your pistol if you want to, and shoot the weird-looking tentacles and cast a five-point Dispel Magick spell to remove the barrier. Grab the emerald effigy and go up the ladder in the middle of this hallway. In this room will be some enemies, such as zombies and a single Horror. Climb down the ladder in the middle of the room. There will be a Gatekeeper after you in this hallway, kill it and proceed through the door at the end. There will be 4 Trappers in this room, go through the only door in here and through the door on the right, next to the ladder. In this room, there are three bas-reliefs of different colors. Place the Sapphire Effigy under the green Scholar, Emerald Effigy under the red Warrior, and finally the Ruby Effigy under the blue Sorcerer. This opens a new stairway back in where the four Trappers was. Go back in that room and down the stairs, grab the auto-enchanted Gladius, you cannot use this weapon as Michael, I wonder who. Go back up and through the door to the east and stand in front of the obelisk. Summon a Trapper here and use the Trapper to target the obelisk and send it away, revealing a ladder behind it. Go down the ladder and down another ladder at the end here in this short hallway. Grab the Bind spell scroll behind you and go around the corner. You will see two Horrors behind a barrier, create a seven-point Bind spell with the alignment stronger than the colored barrier. The Horrors will fight against each other and kill the winner. Grab the Plastic Explosive in the back behind them, exit out of this area by going up the ladder, through the hallway and up another ladder. Go all the east and stand in front of a curtain and cast the seven-point Reveal Invisible spell on it. Go through the hallway here and you will see a corpse on the ground, pick up the Detonator Caps from his hand. Shield yourself with a seven-point Mantorok and RUN through this electrified/yellow hallway into the next room. Go walk on the bridge and kill the tentacles that pops out with your pistol. Now, mix the Detonator Caps with the C4 (Plastic Explosive) and enchant it with a seven-point of an alignment that is against yours. RUN! RUN! RUN! all the way back to the room after the room you start the chapter in, but you have to take a little detour: Exit out of the electrifying hallway, run pass the Horror into the next room. Avoid the zombies and exit out of this room too. In the next room with 6 or so zombies, the door on your way out is blocked, OH THANK YOU GOD! THANK YOU! but no worry! take the door to the right of the door you came in through. This here is a little detour. Avoid all of the baby zombies run through this corridor here and up the ladder at the end. In this dark room, run to the left and down the ladder at the southern end of this room. Next, AVOID FIGHTING the two Horrors in this narrow corridor and up the ladder. Once here, just go for the exit behind you, ending this chapter. -------------------------------Alexandra Roivas------------------------------- From this secret room, go out to the Main Hall while killing zombies on the way. Once you are in the Main Hall, you will heard a noise, and a cut-scene goes to the front door and you will see a Brown Paper Parcel, pick this up and inside will be the last essence you need and the Enchanted Gladius if you picked it up as Michael Edwards. Exit out of the foyer and go into the library and go through the door in the south in which look like an Observatory. Got that crankshaft from the safe in the basement? Good, now use it on the telescope and tilt the control pad to the right until it hits the mirror on the wall. When it does, adjust the mirror on the wall until it hits another mirror on the wall. Go to that mirror and adjust it so that it hit the globe on the floor, once completed, a secret hatch below the floor will move, revealing a hole. Exit out of the observatory and go to the basement. In here, go through the door to the right of the well, and then climb down the ladder. Go down the long stairway until you are in the next part of the big area. Just run through the area and go down the steps into the blue hallway. You will get a message about summoning an ancient to fight Pious the Liche and she need the power of the three artifacts (two essences and the Mantorok essence) to have the power. This room's floor is covered with electricity. Shield yourself with a seven point Mantorok and RUN to the end and go to the right on the top of the steps where the area is clear of the electricity. Here, cast a even-point Dispel Magick with the Mantorok rune and this removes the barrier in front of the door ahead. Cast on yourself with a small three-point Shield and run to the door and go through it. In here, pick up the two Pedestral Fragments that are laying on the floor and mix them together and then enchant it. Use it on one of the three pedestrals here. Then put one essence on top of each pedestral, this turns on the array. Here, you have to do the whole tower thing again like what you did when you were Edward. Here is how it goes from left to right: 1st: Pargon. Go forward and up the steps in this chamber, cast a seven-point Reveal Invisible spell here using the strong alignment to reveal a brigde over the pit, go left to exit out of this chamber. 2nd: Aretak. Couple Trappers in this chamber, kill them and exit out of this chamber. 3rd: Pargon. This is a weird chamber, but simple. Summon a Ulyaoth Trapper in the circle, and same with the Chattur'gha zombie and Xel'lotath Horror. 4th: Pargon. Do not run or walk on the purple floor, or a worm will leap out and drain your sanity. You know what to do, SNEAK to the exit. 5th: Alignment strongest against the current path you are on. The chamber has several Trappers, kill them off with your pistol. 6th: Pargon. This chamber will contains invisible Trappers, there are at least 7 or 8 of them, kill all of them then exit the room. 7th: Pargon. A small scene will show 3 alignments and a purple shield blocking your exit. This is an easy one, cast a seven-point of any alignment using Magickal Attack and this will rtemove the purple shield. 8th: Tier. In this chamber, the floor is filled with electricity, go around the stone block and you will see a shield blocking your exit. Do a seven-point Dispel Magick with the Mantorok to remove the shield. Cast Sheld on yourself and go for the exit. 9th: Pargon. This chamber has a large shield with three Horrors inside. Cast a level seven Bind spell twice to make all three Horrors attack each other, leaving the winner left, kill the winner and exit out of this final chamber. After you have completed all of the towers, prepare for a battle, and this time, it is against Pious! the Liche! If you have the Enchanted Gladius, it make the battle more easier. If not, you'll have to gain your magick somehow. Pious gives a big swing at you, avoid the swing and attack him after he miss. Once you hit Pious, the essence will appear in the back, go up to it and hack it with your sword. Do this two more times and you will be Ellia, you can't do much as a ghost character, go to the essence and hit it, you will return as Alex, have Alex take a swing at Pious and Pious will call the essence back and hack the essence again, this time, you will be Anthony, have him hit the essence and then you'll be Alex again, do the same process for Karim, Maximillian, Paul, and Roberto. After the essence explodes, enchant the shotgun to a Mantorok alignment, and start blasting off at Pious, about 10-15 shots will finish him off, but if you do it from close range, it can go less than 10 shots. Kill him to end the game! ============================================================================== @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@ Weapons @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@ ============================================================================== -.303 Rifle Ammo -A box of .303 Rifle Ammunition (Peter) -.38 Revolver Ammo -A box of .38 Caliber Revolver Ammunition.

I began to watch them carefully... Days ago I watched one of them stretch his neck. I could have sworn I saw it twist in a most peculiar direction, and a bulge of muscle tissue collect and grow in the most incorrect of manners, as if a bone was being displaced from its proper location and something else moving in its place. I stumbled away knowing that I was surrounded by unholy creatures that wore the skins of mortal men and women! I had to take action! Dear God, let my hand be swift and merciful, lest the world see more of these diabolic creatures!" -Letter #1 (Maximillian) A letter, written with some precision, in longhand: "Dear Friend, The antiquity of which you ask is indeed the Tome of Eternal Darkness, or a copy of it, at least. Its secrets are still hidden from me, for I have been unable to read it, as have most scholars who have tried. It will remain within the sanctity of the mansion, for in the wrong hands it would be a powerful weapon. Peruse it if you will, but beware its magick...It is a harsh mistress. Aaron Roivas." -Letter #2 (Maximillian) A letter, scrawled by a panicked hand, with clotted ink: "Dear Friend, The house has been forsaken by the Ancients - I dare not enter it for fear of my mortal soul. I would suggest that you leave also. Bring the book. It is a far more potent tool than you have learned, and may well swing the balance in our favor. Aaron Roivas." -Letter #3 (Maximillian) A letter, scrawled almost indecipherably by a wavering hand: "Dear Friend, As I suspected, the Ruins of Ehn'gha - that blasted necropolis - lie deep under the site of the mansion! The accursed servants of Xel'lolath are so close I can almost hear their chittering!! There is a secret opening in the basement, and from there we can gain access... I urge you to gather some men and seal it, or better still destroy that damned place!! I have stowed something that you will find useful on the upper level. Look to the light, and you will find it. I wish that I could be at your side, but my ailment worsens daily and I know that my time is short... Aaron Roivas." -Letter #4 (Maximillian) The letter, written in a scrawling hand, reads: "Dear Friend, As I expected, the beasts are drawing closer to our discovery. They want the book for themselves it seems, and do not want us to have it in our possession. I have taken steps to ensure that their ilk will not touch the key in this envelope, should you fall prey to their claws. The envelope containing the basement key has been sealed with a corrosive magick - if one not aligned to us tries to handle it, it will be released inflicting painl, suffering and a grievous blow to their sanity, should they have any left! Be swift with your task! Aaron Roivas." -Letter from Edward (Alex) Dear Alexandra, If you are reading this Alex, then I am surely dead. Knowing that the police will contact my only living relative, I made sure to leave this message for you. As I write this letter, Pious Augustus is waiting for his chance to strike me down for what I have done to the Guardian City. I believe I have slowed Augustus' plans, but not stopped them completely. He will still try to bring his Ancient into this world. You must continue what our ancestor Max has started. You must gather the Artifacts and call forth an Ancient to combat what Augustus brings into this world. Of the artifacts there are four, but one of these is in the cluthes of Pious himsdelf. They are: The Black Heart of Mantorok The Claw of Chattur'gha The Sigil of Xel'lotath The Veil of Ulyaoth Your skill in the arcane science will not be as strong as Pious', who has had two millennia to prepare his gate. You will need all the remaining artifacts to match his power. It all rests with you my dear. I wish you well in this desperate act. I wish I had more guidance for you but I am at my wit's end and feel I am running out of time.

Reginald Jackson to his love Margaret: "I was admitted to this hospital on Tuesday. The damage caused to my legs was slight, but there is no way that I could ever walk normally again. I hate this place - every day I am reminded that I will never be able to do the things I love. The hospital is a very strange place. Converted from an old cathedral, there is an odd atmosphere around it. Silent but for the words of the wounded, calling out in the night. There is no doubt it is haunted. What I find most odd in this place is that you never see anyone leave during the day. It's not right - no good-byes or farewells. Just an empty bed when you wake." -Soldier's Letter #2 (Peter) Second Letter from Pvt. Reginald Jackson to his love Margaret: "I've been here for over a week now, and there is no word when I will be allowed to leave. Strange things have happened. At night the sounds of the hospital change - echoes of voices that don't belong to anyone haunt the walls and corridors. The restless ghosts perhaps, or sounds of movement, or whispers. I have seen war firsthand and the sounds at night in this hospital scare me more than I ever thought possible. What is going on here at night? Why do I feel so threatened? My fear are worsened by the talk of the other young soldiers... One said he had heard cries for help in the middle of the night - cries that were only answered by snarls of rage, and not compassion. Another said Lance Corporal Haskill had not been discharged but had gone missing. I stare at his empty bed, with a sense of unholy dread, gnawing at my heart." -Soldier's Letter #3 (Peter) Third Letter from Pvt. Reginald Jackson to his love Margaret: "It's been two weeks since Haskill went missing, and I'm afraid to go to sleep. More than once I saw shadows of people moving past my bed, peeking through the blinds to see a wounded soldier being taken from his bed, drugged and delirious in the dead of the night, never to be seen again... As Haskill was, perhaps as I will be... What happened to them, I don't know... I am afraid to ask what happened, for I know that I would surely be the next one to be taken into the darkness." -Soldier's Orders (Peter) An official note, on Army regulation stationery. The note reads: "Pvt. Thompson, By order of Lt. Hargraves, on behalf of H.R.H. George V, you are to leave your post of duty, and rally in the street outside Oublie Cathedral. Further orders will be presented at the rallying point. God save the King!" -Spice Jar (Alex) -A firmly sealed glass spice jar. The faint aroma of Arabian spices is tantalizingly emanating from it. There is a piece of paper inside it. -Staff (Mike) -A long staff made from hardwood. Its finish, once clean and resplendent, is now dented and cracked. One end of the staff is merely bare wood, indicating that something was once attached to the end. -Staff with Amulet (Mike) -A long staff made from hardwood. Its finish, once clean and resplendent, is now dented and cracked. It is topped with a gold amulet, inset with a lens. -Statuette (Karim) -A crudely sculpted statuette of a man. It seems particularly heavy for its size. -Stethoscope (Alex) -An antique stethoscope made of brass. Used for amplifying the sound of a beating heart. This one is probably two hundred years old. -Strange Necklace (Ellia) -A Strange Necklace, fashioned from a dark ancient stone and engraved with weird designs. It can be used to cast a Healing spell when Ellia is standing still. -Talisman (Karim) -An ancient Talisman that has been in Karim's family for many generations. It is said to bestow long life on those that have kept it. This item can be used to restore health. -Tome of Eternal Darkness (Alex) -This is the Tome of Eternal Darkness, where experience, spells and enchanted items can be stored for future use. It has been made from fragments of human skin and bone, and endowed with magickal powers. -Top Half of Basement Key -This is the Top Half of the key to the (Edward) mansion's basement. The bottom bit is apparently missing. -The Diary of Brother Andrew, Page 1 (Paul) "I have finally arrived at Amiens, and my pilgrimage to see the Hand of Jude draws to a close. I cannot wait to lay eyes upon the sacred relic. My journey here has been arduous and it shall be good to relax for a while in this peaceful village. Amiens is full of good people, strong in their faith and their role in our world. If the blight of witchcraft is present in this world, then I doubt it is in Amiens." -The Diary of Brother Andrew, Page 2 (Paul) "... I suppose it is understandable that they will not show me the Hand of Jude on such little notice, but I must confess that the preparations they make are most unusual. No acts of consecration, no daily prayer or worship are demonstrated by this strange order. One wonders if they are holy at all, let alone being under the auspices of the Grand Inquisition. Perhaps it is my naivete of our faith. There are many practices associated with it, and they differ greatly from region to region. Perhaps Amiens is merely more eccentric than others." -The Diary of Brother Andrew, Page 3 (Paul) "... with a shudder my heart turned to ice. I came to the brutal realization that the entire order were heretics and that I was in incredible jeopardy! Who knows how long they had kept their dark secret - masquerading as custodians of the Hand of Jude, when in fact, they guarded a damnble relic - the Essence of the unholy Chattur'gha? And used IT to lure potential victims to their hideous sacrifice! I felt sick, and despite my faith, I felt intense fear and hopelessness. I know that I must escape this place before they suspect my knowledge. I must warn the world and nitify the real Inquisition of their presence. Knwing death is just around the corner and fearing every moment, I commit these words to paper. Augustine will find this book. I will remove certain pages and hide them, so that all who may follow might discover the truth before it is too late." ============================================================================== @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@ Spell List @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@ ============================================================================== These are all of the spells that are found in the game, and Marc made me a three-point, five-point, and seven-point spell for each spell, thanks Marc!

If I missed out on a location, please contact/email me and tell me. -Alexandra Roivas------------------------------------------------------------- -Picture on left and right of double door, on the left and right wall and in between the stairs. Portraits of the ancestral Roivas line the foyer walls. Their faces reveal a dark, brooding edge. There is something about each one that gives the viewer an unsettling feeling. -Windows on left and right walls The last weak rays of sunlight fight the shroud of darkness. It lends an eerie feel to the last few week's events. As the sun sets, Alex will be alone in this house, with nothing but the spirits of old for company. -Front Door The call of the mansion beckons to Alex, drawing her back to uncover the family secrets it hides. Alex will not leave till she has learned what happened to her grandfather. -Clock A beautiful carriage clock. The hands appear to be stuck, yet the clock continues to tick, with the time permanently set to three-thirty three. There is a key in the back of the clock, presumably for winding it. -After examining it Alex picks up the desk clock, and pulls the key from it. However, there is something odd about the key - it isn't for winding it at all! It looks like a Dresser Key! -Painting on the east wall In the warm glow of candlelight, the Roivas family tree hangs from the wall - shadows flitter across its surface, obscuring the detail. If one looks closely, the family's secrets are revealed. -Shelves of books on the west wall These books contain a history of the Roivas family - genealogy, birth and death records, deeds and writs. The Roivas history is a troubled one: As Mediterranean immigrants, the early Roivas were shunned by other settlers in North America. Suspected of witchcraft, the Roivas were convicted during the witch-hunts, forcing them into hiding. As memories faded the Roivas rebuilt their lives. -Displaced book on west wall Sorting through the books, Alex sees one that seems to be placed differently than all the others, as if drawing attention to itself. Curious, she examines it. Upon the inside cover, shaky handwriting shapes the number "3:33". She replaces the book. -Books in northwest corner The books in this corner seem to focus on the supernatural. The writings of Poe, Lovecraft, the poetry of Blake, the art of Bosch... Everything with a tie to ethereal horror or fantasy. It is all here, a reference library to the arcane. Was this Alex's grandfather's secret hobby? -Bookshelf in northeastern part of the room A slight draft can be felt issuing from beneath the bookshelf. Almost as though a vent or empty space is behind it. -Grandfather clock This looming clock seems to stand ominously in the corner, gazing on this empty room with an almost patriarchal air. Use < and > to adjust the clock hands. (use the control stick and tilt it to the left or right to adjust the clock hands) -Shrine in north wall A small "shrine" of candles. Their placement appears to be very deliberate, matching the etchings on the table and the wall's illustration. The candles are unlit. (after Chapter 2) A small "shrine" of candles. Their placement appears to be very deliberate, corresponding to etchings on the table and an illustration upon the wall. Some of the candles have been lit. -Picture on northwestern corner A diabolic drawing of a stack of human bodies, each one cemented into place! What twisted psyche could have executed this drawing? Though disturbing, it is meticulously rendered down to the subtlest detail: the precise anatomy of fractured bones and the convolutions of spines and ribs entwine into a mesmerizing sight. -Glowing sword: An ancient Roman weapon, a Gladius, is on display above the fireplace mantle. Another token of eclectic junk. -Picture on west wall: This is a bizarre drawing of a cyclopean city, its immense architecture bathed in an unnatural fog. The detail is incredible - as Alex studies it, she can almost imagines the city's inhabitants. -Picture on south wall: A painting of a jungle - shrouded building. It seems to be a temple in Asia, perhaps from Thailand or Cambodia. -Mask in southeast corner: This looks like some kind of mask. The face is serene in composure, with a faint hint of a smile tugging at the corners of the mouth and eyes closed in deep meditation. -Picture on east wall: This gothic cathedral is silhouetted against a stark light. The image is vicious and devoid of subtlety. Every brush stroke echoes the spikes of the architecture, imbuing a violent feeling, as though the building itself is a harsh imposition on reality. A grim picture, indeed. -A page inside a glassed frame on east wall: An aged page set inside a glass frame hangs on the wall. An insane scribbling covers the page, incomprehensible to Alex. Perhaps, if Alex had some kind of Tome it could be deciphered (after Pious's chapter) Strangely, with the Tome of Eternal Darkness in her possession, Alex can read the page - it is a Chapter Page from the Tome itself. -Large book on the desk: A large leather-bound antique book rests upon the cluttered desk. -Desk Edward Roivas' study is filled with arcane knick knacks - mementos of yesteryear and other cultures. The odor of ancient texts is faintly noticeable under the peppering of dust that covers every surface, except one... The desk had been the center of activity, and not a mote of dust is on it. Here, Alex's grandfather had worked perhaps even hours before the end. -Second Floor Hallway large picture A serene painting of a luscious mountain valley, delicately rendered in oils. Time has taken its toll on the surface, which is soiled with dirt and scratches. -Bedroom picture Alex questions the presence of a lush landscape amidst these other morbid pieces. Could it be a single ray of hope encircled by the encroaching darkness..? -Bedroom Dresser One of the drawers in the Dresser curiously has no keyhole. In its place is a small triangular design flanked by a magickal symbol! -Bedroom #2 A musty aroma hangs in the air, and a layer of fine dust lies on all surfaces of the room. It seems as if no one has been in here for a long time. It's almost like a museum... -Bedroom #2 picture frame An oddly proportioned painting of a man in somewhat Napoleonic garb. Obviously an intentional exaggeration, it gives the painting an oddly quirky feel. -Kitchen Sealed Door A wooden plaque is fastened to the door, taking the place of the lock. A colored sigil is carved into the wood above a wide slot. The slot is just wide enough to insert a narrow blade. -Kitchen Pantry The kitchen is as empty as the library is full - a reflection of her grandfather's attitude. Always learning, reading, studying - rather than eating. -Library Book Alex discovers a pulp novel, written by one Dr. Edwin Lindsey amongst the books on the shelf. This is where the Tome of Eternal Darkness indicated that something of value was hidden, behind this book. -Stained Window The stained glass depicts a glowing medieval maiden, luminous even with the faint light of the setting sun. The maiden clasps a piece of parchment in her hands. The window gives Alex a strange feeling, almost as if it is magickal, and not really there... A glowing field of energy protects the window. -Basement (Edward's port) A stockpile of Edward's port. One of his many eccentricities, his taste for port went hand in hand with his appetite for knowledge. No doubt his quests were fueled by this "little" cache. -Safe The safe is large and old-fashioned, made in the days when security was derived from the heavy metal construction eather than secure locking mechanisms. It doesn't look like it would be too difficult to break the combination, if only Alex had a Stethoscope to hear the tumblers more clearly. -Fuse Box A fuse box and circuit breaker array is situated upon the wall. All but one of the fuses are intact. The absence of this one is suspicious and until it is replaced the circuit connected to it is useless. -Bathroom Cabinet Inside, an array of unctions, potions, pills and ointments to cure all ails, including hypochondria. Edward was quite nervous about his health, as if the whole world depended upon it. -Wallpaper The wallpaper in this section of the hallway is oddly marred, as though the wall it sits on is not even with the rest of the room. -Obversatory crank socket A crank socket is mounted in the telescope, and appears to be linked to a mirror supported by a brass pedestral. A curious contraption to be sure - what purose can it possibly serve? -Brass Framed Mirror A brass-framed mirror is set into the wall. The mirror's direction can be adjusted by means of two crankshafts set below it. A curious device, is it related to the telescope in some way? -Globe on floor A globe cradled in a wooden frame. Its glossy surface is painted in the likeness of an ancient map. A lens is situated in the northern hemisphere, above a label that reads: "There be dragons here." -In front of telescope As the alignment of planets draws near, a narrow stream of pale light is focused onto the telescope through an amethyst-like gem set into the wall. -Lid Removed With the lid removed, some kind of well-like entranceway is revealed. A ladder leads down into the murky darkness. Was this Edward's route into the Guardian City? -Overlooking Ehn'gha As the Tome had suggested by Edward's and Maximillian's words, the city exists, and is far more incredible than Alex had thought. Here are the ruins of Ehn'gha - the corpse city, parasitized by the Guardians of Xel'lotath... Nine great towers dwarf the surrounding buildings. It would appear these towers serve as some kind of focusing array, channeling great tides of energy into the city itself -Array area Long ago, Edward Roivas used the arrays to destroy the denizens of the Guardian City. Alex needs to match the power of the Liche and destroy the Ancient he plans on bringing into this world. -Stone block in one of the chambers A huge, stone block, etched with bizarre etchings dominates the room. Is it art? A memorial? A tomb of the original inhabitants, or a bastardized interment of its loathsome conquerors? -Pious Augustus--------------------------------------------------------------- -First chamber -West wall The decorations on the wall are a mixture of ancient cultures-civilizations that have long since turned to dust. Perhaps this dungeon is all that remains of them. -Port in the middle of floor (not the ladder) The dais on the floor is finely crafted - inlaid with gold and gems that Pious can't identify. A strong linear design is situated in the middle, and is equally unknown to the Roman soldier. -Ladder A ladder leads into the dank heart of the labyrinth. Danger lurks beneath, yet Pious' courageous resolve does not buckle. -Granite #4 room (the 4 signs on the north wall) This wall is prominently decorated with a strange lined Symbol carved into the granite. Cut into the wall is a square hole lined with scratches as though something has been removed from it. (after you place the block in) The hole is filled with a granite block. It cannot be removed, as though it is magickally sealed into place! -Glowing symbol A Button attached to a small pylon softly illuminates the room. A bizarre energy seems to radiate from it. -Pedestral Room -Green An effigy resembling a warped angel, shaped from dark green emerald, hovers effortlessly above the pedestral. -Red A strange sculpture resembling a red-clawed worm mysteriously floats above the pedestral. -Blue Shaped like a delicate dome, a pale blue statuette floats gracefully above the pedestral. -Ellia------------------------------------------------------------------------ -First Chamber Door The door is firmly closed, sealing the temple! Perhaps thgere is another exit somewhere inside? -Triangular Design in the middle of the floor A triangular design is carved into the floor. The etched grooves are filled with colored sand. These symbols appear to be related to each other, with one having precendence over another. -Goddess statue A statue of a goddess, delicately sculped from sandstone. It casts an alert eye over everyone who enters the temple. There is a Strange Necklace about its neck. -Red light room (middle of the floor) Engraved on the floor is a striking design featuring the sun sinking below the edge of the world. -Southeast wall in the red room The design on the wall appears to depict a time of the day. Perhaps the candles do too? -East of hallway of traps -Middle of floor Engraved on the floor is a striking design featuring a brightly burning sun. -Chamber #4 Engraved on the floor is a striking design featuring the sun rising above the edge of the world. -Chamber #5 Engraved on the floor is a striking design featuring a starry sky filing the heavens. -Hallway with Blowgun A small pedestral covered with decorative etchings stands before the wall. The Blowgun upon it must have some special significant for it to be the focal point of this display. -Mural on the south wall This mural depicts a skeletal demon befriending the ancient Khmer people by denoucing one of their fertility gods. -Statue with slot in it There is a hole in the device, as though something can be inserted. Perhaps a key or a lever. -Mural on the wall in the southeastern part of the temple This mural depicts one of the ancient Khmer deities being tortured and killed by a skeletal demon. Anthony----------------------------------------------------------------------- -Cathedral Casket Peering inside the casket, Anthony sees the body of a monk. His raiment is that of his order, stained with blood that has seeped from many grievous wounds. It is a truly disturbing sight. -Hand and Screaming Faces Cradled in what appears to be a leathery hand lies a mysterious book. It is bound in human skin and intricately decorated with shrunken bones. It beckons and yearns to be possessed. -Upper Floor windows Faint, warm sunlight filters into the room through these windows. Tiny dust motes drift, caught in the rays of the dying sun, fighting the growing shadow. -Upper floor middle bookcase Amongst the tomes and manuscripts, a book brings attention to itself. Oddly pristine on the dusty shelf, it doesn't quite belong... -Upper floor right bookcase A bewildering array of books and tomes sorted neatly on a set of shelves. Mostly books of a religious nature, they sit beneath a skein of dust, as if no one has touched them... -Water Fountain A disturbing rendition of a monstrous devil! It is contorted into what appears to be a fountain. What sickly liquid is this draining into the pool, trickling from a scum-encrusted spout? -Tapestry An aged Tapestry hangs on the wall. It is soiled from the dank atmosphere of the room, and the corruption about it. -Bookcase in basement Religious texts of an unspeakable nature, written in languages utterable only by monsters or corrupt humans... -Iron Plate An iron plate in the floor is carved with three curious circles. Dried splashes have marred its pockmarked and worn surface. -Books on table Amongst the books on the table rests an ancient scroll of what appears to be a paper. -Shrine A shrine to a god that bespeaks of an ancient evil that graced the earth before mankind walked its valleys. Karim------------------------------------------------------------------------- -Dead Body A man's corpse lies fallen. Wounds cover the exposed flesh of his body, where his armor has failed. -Statuette A Statuette vaguely resembling a man, stands atop a low pedestral. -Barrier blocking Rune A corruscating barrier blocks Karim's progress down the ladder. Its shimmering energies creates the vision of a Rune upon its surface. -Shrine in middle of the room An arcane shrine dominates the room. Braziers surround its edge, while a larger one tops its summit. No doubt each one would be filled with incense to facilitate prayer to insidious deities. -Dead Body #2 Lying in a pool of cold blood is a dead soldier. He is the victim of an unseen battle. Perhaps this man died from the claws of the monsters of this place. It is difficult to tell. -Dead Body #3 A man lies dead, annoited in blood from the ravages of a Tulwar sword. The wounds, deep and numerous, seep fresh blood. Precise, yet powerful - the result of a man's actions not a monster's. -Door with Green Sigil A metallic plaque replaces the lock. A Colored Sigil is engraved in the metal above a wide slot. The slot appears to be wide enough to insert a large blade. -Dead Body #4 Another dead man. Who were these men whose corpses litter the dungeon - unwary soldiers who stumbled inside? Or grave robbers looking to plunder it? A crumpled scroll lies under the dead man's curled fingers. -Ram Dao on pedestral A large Ram Dao broadsword protrudes from a solid pedestral made of stone. It awaits its next owner. -Long corridor Along the length of the corridor, the ceiling has given way and collapsed, littering the floor with debris. -Sculpture A blasphemous sculpture made from human skin and bone. A trestle of bones is cradled within this "shrine", like a nightmarish bookstand, beckoning to be used... Maximillian Roivas------------------------------------------------------------ -Room #1 Bookcase A small collection of Maximillian's medical journals, references and reports. -Servant Room ? A state of the art interior outhouse! Polished teak and mahogany finish, it is truly a sight to behold and experience... -Hallway A gritty portrait of a man with an overbearing countenance. Hardly a reassuring soul, Maximillian wonders if that trait was prevalent in his ancestors. -Hallway large frame The painting has a quaint, reassuring feeling behind the brushwork - which is probably why it has been kept in the family for as long as it has. -Tablet on top of fireplace A stone tablet, carved with strange pictograms is displayed on the mantlepiece. An odd conversation piece, to be sure. -Fireplace A luxurious fire warms the master bedroom, its flickering light giving both a soft aura to the room's somber decor, and an ominous side to the shadows. -Servant The servant mutters under his breath, not realizing that Max is nearby. He appears to be distressed at his lot in life, working all the time. -Servant in Main Hall Bidding Maximillian a courteous good day, the servant returns to his duties. -Windows Cold moonlight filters in through grime-stained windows. Even with servants cleaning every day, the house never seems to get very clean. As if the very nature of the house itself is soiled. -Servant in Kitchen Whilst going about her duties, the servant casually remarks about a strange quality hanging in the air. This odd comment makes Maximillian feel like something is quite amiss. Why would she say that? -Fireplace in kitchen A cozy fireplace is the focal point of the kitchen, lending a good deal of warmth to the austere room at night. -Servant #2 in Kitchen With a kind smile, she asks if Maximillian has an appetite, as she is preparing a heartly meal for the evening. -Servant in Dining Room The servant inquires if Maximillian requires anything of service. -Dining Room portrait (above the fireplace) There is something written beneath the image: "When Darkness spreads its wings before my Master (symbol) Xel'lotath's greatest foe, the path to the truth will be opened." -Secret Room picture above fireplace This appears to be a wax rubbing of some kind of carved pattern. The central point is an odd, lined design - a symbol of something? -Flintlock Pistol on wall An aged Flintlock Pistol rests on a display stand fixed to the wall. -Secret Room frame behind desk This gothic cathedral is silhouetted against a stark light. The image is vicious and devoid of subtlety. Every brush stroke echoes the spikes of the architecture, imbuing a violent feeling, as though the building itself is a harsh imposition on reality. A grim picture, indeed. -Sabre on wall An ornamental Sabre is displayed on the wall. -Symbol on invisible door The design is oddly reminiscent of a Circle of Power mentioned in the Tome of Eternal Darkness. It probably refers to some kind of spell, and its alignment. -Second Floor hallway A stained glass window, resplendent with bright colors and exquisite workmanship. There is something odd about it, perhaps the curious detail of its shapes and content. -Basement Water Pump A rusted pump stands by the well. Its handle appears to be missing. -Balcony overlooking city Max is incredulous at the sight - a desolate ruin of a fantastic city, built into a huge, naturally formed cave! Jutting spires and looming buildings poke through the dense dog. Light ebbs through the city, crackling in the wake of the energy spilling from a light source held aloft by unseen forces. Edwin Lindsey----------------------------------------------------------------- -Statue in Room #1 A statue of a seated goddess. Where her neck and wrists should bear jewelry, there are merely worn grooves and flecks of Bronze dust... Had they been stolen by grave robbers? -Trying to leave Lindsey has no intention of leaving the temple yet. He is determined to get to the artifact before Augustine does. No one crosses Edwin Lindsey! -Middle of Room #1 A thick layer of dust obscures the tiles of the floor. -Middle of Room #1 after brushing away dust A Bronze Bracelet has been discovered under the dust covering the floor. -Middle of floor in southeast part of temple This carving represents the growth of the human race. Its rise to intelligence and the development of society. It foreshadows the decline of Humanity. This is Humanity's "Dusk." -Corner in southeast part of temple An alcove carries an array of candles. They are arranged to reflect the time of the day. Curiously, they are still lit! How is it possible? -Cobweb in corner of hallway The corner is shrouded with dense cobwebs casting it into shadow, perhaps even hiding something? -Middle of floor in northeast part of temple This particular depiction represents the birth of the human race within the Universe. This is Humanity's "Dawn." -Naga A stone statue of a Naga, a snake-headed demon, stands guard in the corner of the room. A raised platform stands before it with a Bracelet on it. -Middle of northwest room This design depicts Humanity's fall into decadence, corruption and ultimately oblivion. This is Humanity's "Night." Our time. -Middle of southwest room This particular depiction represents the prosperity of Humanity and its domination over the world. This is Humanity's "Day." -Statue in middle of hallway Hiding in the shadows a statue watches over the room. A brief inspection reveals flecks of Silver metal marring the statue's wrist and neck, possibly indicating that a decoration used to be there... -Basin There is a small basin, or font, situated beneath the statue. Beside that, an orb-shaped button sits on a panel of stone. -Statue A statue of carved granite, depicting a ceremonial temple guard. It appears to be keeping watch on the seated goddess in the corner of the room. -Goddess Statue A statue of an unknown goddess, seated in a classical pose. She appears to be carrying something valuable. -Mural The eroded mural appears to depict the arrival of a strange godlike entity before an ancient human tribe. Lindsey cannot recognize the god in the mural. He is mystified. -Mural #2 A damaged engraving on the wall depicts a skeletal demon befriending the ancient Khmer people. To Lindsey's eyes, the demon looks exactly like Paul Augustine's undisguised self. -Mural #3 Lindsey find's this mural frighteningly familiar. It is the scene he saw in the Tome of Eternal Darkness. The fertility god must be Mantorok and this temple must be its tomb. -Purple Shield There appears to be a hole in the wall. It is large enough for a small dog to pass through. Paul Luther------------------------------------------------------------------- -Cell Emerald The painting captures Paul's attention. A small Emerald disguised as part of the painting, glints in the candlelight, as though it has some value beyond being a precious gem. -Latin verse on wall A framed fragment of written verse. It is in Latin, and makes references mostly to diabolical entities, and how man is dominated by them if he strays from the rites of protection. -Portrait of Monk A somber portrait of a monk stares icily from the wall. Something about those grim, staring eyes sparks doubt and suspicion in Paul. Is this the face of a holy man? -Bell Paul is nervous about ringing the bell, fearing his own capture. It is the Custodian's task to ring the bell at appropiate times. Perhaps he will be by later to ring it? -Portrait on wall in Robes room The woodcut shows an act of blasphemy: a host of demons prey upon humans like they were playthings. Disemboweled by mocking demons, eaten or tortured by other carnal, deviant acts. -Robes closet The rack carries robes and cloaks for ceremonial use. As Paul draws the robe back, something tumbles from inside. -Portrait behind chest A woodcut depicting the effects of a plague. The spirit of Death incarnate casts final judgment over a wealth of victims. -Podium A simple podium and lectern provides a platform for a priest giving a sermon to his congregation. There is a drawer recessed inside it. -Spartan Bed This spartan bed shows how the order treats its visitors. There is no sign of the order's own quarters and this chills Paul to the bone. The only man that doesn't need a bed is a dead one... -Mechanism The bellows mechanism supplies the organ upstairs with air. It requires an expert hand and attention to keep in working order. -Altar The altar benefits of holy adornment. No crucifix, no bible, no sacrament of any kind... Paul is disturbed by this sight. What faith does the order practice? -Piano By means of bellows and pump, the pipe organ is able to play deeply moving music. It has the power to inspire faith and to influence hearts beyond the control of the mind. -Tabernacle The tabernacle is almost empty. There are none of the things that should be there, such as holy water and other ritualistic items. Only a Circle of Power lying on the lower shelf. -Wine Barrels A Wine Cask used for maturing wine. The wine inside this one must be very strong, for it seeps through the cask, filling the air with a heady aroma. -Pedestral This pedestral has three small indentations adorning its top, arranged in a circular formation. Each socket appears to be waiting for something. -Effigy of Monk An effigy of a monk reclining on a sacrificial altar. A deep groove bisects its chest. The monk's face looks almost exactly like the Custodian! The inscription reads: "Only when they friend is sacrificed, when his cries fill the air, will the great doors be open to thee." -Table filled with paperwork As further proof of the heresy within this dark cathedral, a table bears arcane documents. Diagrams and sigils pertaining to demonic craft are scattered across the recently used table. -Bookcase Arcane documents and treatments of the demonic arts. Paul daren't touch them for fear of the taint of evil. -Shelf This shelf appears to be recessed into the wall, not quite as flush as the others in the room. Almost as if it coud...slide inward? -Shrine A blasphemous shrine stands at the end of the room. Dedicated to an unholy god, Paul can sense its evil and finds it difficult to approach. -Alcoves in Mausoleum Hidden in the alcoves of this mausoleum lie the remains of departed monks. Some have turned to dust, others have grotesquely withered, leaving husks of bone and leathery skin. -Barrier Paul's progress forward is blocked by a corrosive spell. Obviously, someone wants to keep intruders at bay, and this lethal magick is just the way to do it. -Dead Body Lying in a pool of his own blood is the Custodian - Paul's only ally in his fight against the Darkness. His soul no doubt lingers, fused to the altar on which his life has been taken, watching over his own rapidly cooling corpse. Feeling all hope escape him, Paul's situation is suddenly a thousand times more desperate than before. Now he is alone - alone against the Darkness! -Last Door in the catacomb This door is decorated more than most within the catacombs. Sensing an immense evil behind this door, Paul wonders if the ceremony the monk had mentioned earlier is taking place behind it. Roberto Bianchi--------------------------------------------------------------- -Foundation The foundation for the monument has been constructed, but it has suffered some damage. The rest of the complex is unknown, and Roberto must discover if construction can continue. -Survey Area #1 The structure around here shows signs of stress. It is far from sound. Perhaps with some reinforcement, it might be able to suit the requirements of the monument. -Frantic Worker A frantic worker, looking for answers to questions that can't be answered. He hopes Roberto is there to save them and longs to see his family and friends once he escapes. -Coward Worker The worker is surprised to see Roberto. He confesses to cowardice, as he stayed behind while others ventured further into the complex. When the screams of the others echoed from the walls. he dared not move. -Survey Area #2 Dust and rock falls from the roof through a fault in the stone. It is difficult for Roberto to assess how sturdy the place is, but it needs a lot of reinforcement if it is to be built upon. -Dead Body Another worker's corpse. This time slashed from behind as he ran from his attacker, hoping for escape. -Dead Body #2 Ravaged corpses litter the room. Their flesh has been devoured in places, and decomposition has already set in. -Artifact Roberto can feel the acidic touch of the Artifact's magick reaching toward him. Using a shred of cloth from his robes to shield his hands, he retrieves the hovering Artifact. -Survey Area #3 The room appears to be an incredibly ancient shrine to the Ancients, as noted in the Tome of Eternal Darkness. Could this be what Roberto's captor seeks to preserve with his monument? -Rubble Stones and rubble from the collasped ceiling prevent any passage in that direction. -Survey Area #4 Although crumbling in places, the structure of this area could be braced to provide enough of a foundation for the monument. -Monolith A hideous bas-relief adorns the monolith: humans thrown into a nest of huge worms. The people have been sacrificed - ingested by the worms to fuel some unknown, unfantomable process. -Monolith #2 This carving depicts a man's skeletal remains in the cruel embrace of a multitude of worm-like creatures. Are these the things that killed the men in this room? -Survey Area #5 The delapidated roof appears to be collapsing in several areas and will need a lot of reinforcement. The workers will have a daunting task ahead of them. Peter Jacob-------------------------------------------------------------------- -Aisle of beds Covered with blood-stained sheets, these poor souls have passed from this world. For them, the suffering is over, but for those around them, the ordeal continues. -Curtain around the bed The faint sound of moaning emanates from behind the linen veils. Whispered utterances, frantic prayers to loved ones - words offered only by those who face their mortality. -Nurse #1 With a motherly voice, the nurse advises that Peter get some rest. -Soldier in bed The soldier is rather distressed. Perhaps he has lost a lot of friends to the trenches of the Somme. He confides that the only stories are sad ones, and that the only true heroes are in the mortuary. -Altar The altar is cleared of all valuables, not only to prevent looting, but also to afford space for medical supples and even as an operating table should the need arise. -Trying to leave With the war being so close, a curfew has been imposed. Traveling outside the hospital is not a safe thing to do, since intruders will likely be shot on sight. Peter decides to remain inside. -Crates Stacked deeply on the landing, crates of medical supplies await use. Syrettes of morphine, bandages, tourniquets, antiseptics... The list goes on and on. -Guard The guard shifts about, obviously bored with his duty and awaiting a replacement or perhaps a call to arms. -Posters Designed to muster patriotic feelings, these posters declare that the allies are fighting the good fight. It's small comfort for the occupants of the room, whose spent corpses line the cold cathedral floor. -Corpses Stacked like logs, Peter stands before the price of human war. The bloodied corpses of young men who have made the ultimate sacrifice to defend their own countries and those of others. -Desk A desk kept meticulously clean. Peter is surprised that it is not more chaotic for a frontline hospital. After all, isn't this where the death certificates are written? -Pipe Organs The workings of the pipe organ have remained mostly the same since installation. Originally, the bellows were driven manually; now they are steam-powered, and the organ controlled electricity. This might be one of the oldest restored pipe organs in the world. -Boiler Old, rusty, but faithful for many years, a coal-burning boiler provides heat and steam to the cathedral complex. There is currently no pressure being diverted to the generator. -Fusebox Perched on the wall beside the generator is an open-faced fusebox. A fuse appears to be missing. There is no sign of where it could be. -Dead Guard A guard lies dead at the foot of the steps, viciously assassinated by the creatures now infesting the cathedral. He went quickly and without much of a struggle. -Seven-Point on wall An odd collection of colored lines decorate the wall. Below the design steps appear to lead up into the wall, going nowhere... -Door with no handle After the magick has taken hold, a heavy oak door is revealed. Scratches and dents infest the wood, telling a long dark story. It is missing its Handle. There seems to be no way to open it... -Shrine An array of lit candles bestow an eerily dark light upon a bas-relief on the wall. Strange, primitive and disturbing imagery covers the shrine, evoking a sense of ancient evil. -Ancient Stone The ancient stone is drenched with blood, scarred by the countless strikes of a sacrifical knife. The stone reeks of the pain and torment inflicted upon it. The air is cold - filled with lingering spirits. Peter can feel their sullen despair as they witnessed every sacrifice with horror and disgust. They writhe in the dank air with his every breath, begging for help he cannot give - for release from their unholy tomb. -Dead Body on Stairs A soldier's cold and stiff body lies sprawled on the steps. Peter attempts to flip the corpse over to discover his identity, but all that is left of the man's face is a ruined mass of eaten flesh. Edward Roivas------------------------------------------------------------------ -Library This part of the library is reserved for the entertaining of the house's more scholarly guests. A simple, yet elegant layout affords quiet drink and conversation. -Reading Chair Edward's favorite reading chair faces a healthy, warm fire. No doubt many cold nights are ahead. -Servant As Edward nears, the servant stops mumbling to herself and asks him if he thinks the weather will clear up before the Solstice. Edward finds the reference to the "Solstice" rather odd and ponders. -Servant saved by you from Vampire Shaken by his brush with death, the servant gives his thanks. He warns that the creature might still be around, and extra firepower would be handy. Reminded by his own words, he fishes a key from his pocket and gives it to Edward. -Basement port A couple of barrels of vintage port. No matter how bad life gets, one can always look to the brighter side of things with the old scarlet rush! -Plinth These plinths look like the ones Pious had encountered in the Forbidden City - where he found the Essence of the Ancients. Edward briefly wonders what their purpose could be. Michael Edwards--------------------------------------------------------------- -Corpse A desiccated corpse lies sprawled on the temple floor, dressed in desert combat fatigues. A rifle, pistol and a variety of ammunition lie about him. The soldier appears to have gone down fighting... -Model of City It looks like a scale replica of the area. The model its made from clay and seems brittle. Some of the buildings appear to have been coated with a reflective glaze. -Bas-relief of Warrior The bas-relief depicts a good Warrior. The image is very strong, dominating this part of the room. Below the design, a small ledge protrudes from the wall, as if awaiting something. -Bas-relief of Scholar The bas-relief depicts a female Scholar. Her authoritative glare dominates this part of the room. Below the design, a small ledge protrudes from the wall, as if awaiting something. -Bas-relief of Sorcerer The bas-relief depicts a Sorcerer casting a spell. There is an air of authority about him, conveyed by his dominating visage. Below the design, a small ledge protrudes from the wall, waiting for something. -Obelisk A strange obelisk made from a dark granite-like material. It appears to be blocking the way forward, but the obelisk appears to be impervious to all damage. -Curtain An onnocuous paneled wall caps this end of the room. It is conspicuously empty by comparison to the other walls of the room. -Pit For centuries, evil has been channeled through this pit. Countless souls sacrificed to the Darkness. Someone must end this madness... A bomb placed here would be enough to pull the already collapsing city down into oblivion, destroying everything inside. ============================================================================== @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@ Credits @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@ ============================================================================== Nintendo - For making this game available in US and once again for publishing this game.
