PLEURGHBURG: Dark Ages - WALKTHROUGH.
20th February 2002.             Len  Green.             lengreen@hotmail.com

                           GENERAL  NOTES.

[A]    This walkthrough has been written for the (new) second version of the game ... V1.1.  It should however be applicable also to the previous original version V1.0.
N.B.    Saves made on V1.0 *cannot* be used on V1.1 and vice versa!
[B]    There is one excellent ending, two 'reasonable' endings and one 'bad' ending ... all very different and finishing with considerably different point scores.  All four endings are dealt with in this walkthrough.
The game branches near the middle [ see (099) below ] and gives the possibility of two very different paths ... which rejoin later.  This walkthrough deals with both of these routes.
[C]    At the end of each action, or series of actions, I have included {in curly brackets} MY point score.  By subtracting from the previous score, it is easy to see how many points were achieved for each such action(s).
My final score is most probably a few points less than the absolute maximum possible, since I've more than likely missed out on some non essential but point scoring actions &/or paths!  However, in general, I don't think that the score is to be taken TOO seriously, but simply as an indication of vital progress, since essential actions (and maybe also some arbitrary ones) are always scored.
[D]    As with all Quest/Adventure games, grab everything which is not nailed down.  Look at, manipulate & interact with everything possible ... including all items in inventory.  Combine suitable items inside inventory wherever appropriate.  Talk to everybody you meet and carry on until you exhaust all conversational possibilities ... but take care; sometimes an inappropriate dialog choice can cause a blockage of further topics with subsequent loss of points! etc.
[E]    Save as often as possible.  You are frequently in dangerous situations &/or those in which you can get killed.  Also there are MANY different paths you can take, and you may wish to backtrack to try out a previous option.  There are only 9 save slots but you can overwrite them when they are full.  It is easy to save previous batches of 9 saves ... you can zip them to reasonable sizes for more permanent saving if you so wish.
[F]    For some action sequences it's worth while (maybe even *essential*) to reduce walking speed in the options window to minimum ... then returning to 'normal' afterwards.
[G]    Occasional scenes are VERY dark ... generally in the 'evenings'.  Many players will have to turn up their monitor brightness, maybe even to maximum, for such scenes.
[H]    Some computers &/or monitors may have trouble with the "Fog" effect.  If so, simply switch it off in the options window.
[I]    There are quite a few pretty gruesome 'pictures'. Some are amplified even more in closeups, which, if you are squeamish, you can eliminate by turning off "Extra Gore" in the options window.
[J]    Sometimes you just walk out of a location and you are 'on the map'.  However, whenever Jake's car is present you MUST use the key(ring) on the vehicle in order to access the map.
[K]    Sometimes this walkthrough will tell you to perform an action (e.g. combining items in inventory) before you absolutely need to do so ...  occasionally WELL before!  You can either do what is suggested, or leave it until some later time when you are *obliged* to do so.
[L]    If you're stuck, look at the "Hints & Tips" in the game's manual.
Also you frequently have to go to the PDA & talk to your boss in order to progress.
From time to time it is wise to go to Jake's home & switch on the computer :-  there is sometimes essential incoming email ... and occasionally you may have to search for details on a name you have obtained previously.

Your boss wants to know if you intend to continue your investigations "by searching the sewers under the crash site" or "At a Publisher (Hyper Print)".

                                S  A  V  E     H  E  R  E !!

*~*~*~*~*~*    At this point (099) the game splits into two different paths i.e. "Sewers" & "Hyper Print".  The two paths join up again at (109).
After you continue from here, you cannot get onto the alternate track without returning to this Save (and with whatever point score you have achieved up to here).
Since "The Sewers" yields more points, I am continuing with that route here.  If/when you wish to take the "Hyper Print" path, return to this Save, go to the very end of this walkthrough and implement (100 H-P) thro' (108 H-P)  [ instead of (100) thro' (108) ].  You will then be able to continue from the same joint section (109) but with 10 (I think) points less at every step afterwards.    *~*~*~*~*~*

THE "SEWERS" PATH.

(100)    Choose "searching the sewers" --- Your boss tells you it's too dangerous to continue alone & instructs you to get someone to follow you --- Return to ground floor & take sec-2 elevator to the 3rd floor --- Talk to Jennifer Parker --- She agrees to accompany you --- You are taken automatically into the sewers .................... {199}

Wow! Too hot to handle --- Return to pipe valves ... only one is helpful in this situation --- Interact with 2nd valve from the right ... fairly low down --- Return to the gap ... now the pipes will be cool enough to help you cross --- Look at the body parts & clothing floating on the 'water' --- Search the blood-soaked piece of a robe at the edge of the wall --- Get the rusty old key --- Return to the steel door ... use the set of pipes again --- Use the rusty key on the door ... it doesn't work ... there's some gunk clogging up the keyhole .................... {200}
(102)    Take Ahatma's pickles from inventory & pour into the sewage ... you get an empty jar --- Put empty jar underneath the strong acid dripping down from one of the pipes ... get a jar containing acid --- (If using any pipe valve has caused the acid drip to stop, renew it by interacting with the 3rd pipe valve from the right) --- Put the acid on the door ... it cleans it .................... {206}
(103)    Open door with rusty key --- Enter underground office .................... {208}

<<<<<<    A number of players have had (considerable) difficulties with this shoot-out at Samuel's.  You may need some patience if you have to repeat many times, but if you persevere you will almost certainly succeed eventually.  If you are manipulatively challenged and just CANNOT do it, in V1.1 (but not V1.0) you can bypass the shoot-out completely by interacting with the small green window "Skip Scene" at bottom right screen, albeit forfeiting the 2 points score for so doing!
There are doubtless different ways of winning.  This is the way I eventually found to succeed (almost) every time ... you may find a better method!
(a)    Adjust monitor gamma setting, or brightness & contrast, so that the rock(s) behind which the baddie is hiding can be seen *clearly*.  [ I also found it helpful to play this part of the game in near darkness. ]   (b)    Although I managed to succeed at maximum speed, it is helpful to set the speed [ in options window ] to minimum.   (c)    I did not jump to the side of the screen at all.   (d)    As soon as you get control, identify the cleft between the 2 rocks where the baddie's HEAD appears ... not a little to the left of this where the gunshot flashes appear!   (e)    As soon as you get control, VERY QUICKLY move the cross-hairs onto this spot and  fire off 2 or 3 shots at the guy's head as fast as you can.   (f)    Do not move the cross-hairs ... i.e. from this position keep your mouse stationary --- As soon as his head appears again, fire off as many shots as you can, and as fast as you can.
This should kill the member of the Order.   >>>>>>
Redstone Park.
(123)    Back in the Park --- It's dark, so neutralize the panther again ... see (088) --- Go to the large rock with the hole & the stick, the landscape with the old mansion surrounded by trees, etc. ... see (096) --- In inventory, put either the pair of lenses or the spectacles into cardboard pipe making a spyglass --- put spyglass onto the forked twig ... it's now steady --- Spy on mansion ... nothing worth seeing! .................... {264}

**~**    An optional "SHORT-CUT PATH".
The Davidson house is now on the map --- You can enter it if you like since there's nobody there ... you'll get no points for this, and no 'penalty' either --- But unless you *deliberately wish* to end the game prematurely, do NOT open the warning message on the desk ... if you do, a short-cut will FORCE you into the second-rate endings described later on, with VERY many points less than the maximum achievable ... See "Endings ~ (i) & (ii)" [ at section (130). ]   **~**
PDA.
(126)    Use sec-1 elevator to go up to 4th floor --- Talk to boss ... Jake is close to finding Order's HQ --- Go again to Redstone Park.

(127)    The panther won't trouble you during the day! --- Go to the large rock with the hole & the stick and put spyglass onto the forked twig ... [ see (123) ] --- Spy on mansion --- NOW you see a member of the Order ... Hooray; you've found their HQ!! --- Exit Park.
PDA.
(128)    Use sec-1 elevator to go up to 4th floor --- Talk to boss ... Jake tells his boss that he's found the Order's HQ! .................... {268}
DAY 4; EVENING.
You're taken automatically to the mansion.
N.B.    There IS  NO  "Day 4; Afternoon"!

The mansion (HQ of the 'Order').
(129)    Ignore the robed guard in the hut, at least for now --- Walk West & round that side of the mansion --- Look at the open window ... the bottom left hand one --- Enter (interact with) that window ... dark inside; a good place to sneak in .................... {269}

ENDINGS ~ (i) & (ii).
(130)    These are the 'bad' ending & the 'not too good' ending.  Many actions can set you onto this route during this last section of the game ... e.g. talking too much or too long to the outside guard; gatecrashing the Order's meeting unrobed; recklessly opening a creaking cupboard inside the mansion; etc.  One 'frequent' path to these endings is described as follows:-
(131)    Enter 1st door on left ... a bedroom --- Look at robed Order member sleeping on bed --- Open creaking cupboard.
(132)    Too noisy ... seized by Order members --- Jake is tied up in an attic ... stripped of ALL inventory items.
(i) ~ Very bad ending.
(133)    Shuffle forward along right hand wall ... floor makes loud creaking noise --- repeat 3 or 4 times --- Floor collapses --- Everything & everybody, including Jake, blown up and killed in bomb explosion --- Pleurghburg suffers but eventually recovers --- FINITO! {269 points}
(ii) ~ Mediocre endings.
(134)    After (132), shuffle along to the left until you touch the bookcase --- Bump into (interact with) the shelf 3 or 4 times --- Statue head falls on guard & neutralizes him .................... {271}
(135)    Shuffle back right to rusty old pipe --- Interact with pipe; i.e. scrape rope bonds against pipe ... when freed take Order member's robe & exit attic .................... {273}
(136)    Descend stairs (near mid screen) --- Enter door on the far  left --- Enter door on the very far left --- Enter door again on the extreme left ... (where you may have heard voices) --- As a member of the Order, participate in the meeting ... planning to overrun Pleurghburg .................... {275}
(137)    Grab matchbox from table .................... {276}
(138)    Throw burning match from inventory into trash can --- Fire --- Everybody exits --- All members of Order captured --- OK; a (moderately) happy ending, with fairly lengthy concluding sequences! {276 points}
(139)    If you are a 'point-score-enthusiast', you can actually whip up 6 extra points by performing actions which are only REALLY relevant to the better endings, BEFORE you execute step (138)!
You can exit the conference room and collect some chloroform from the bathroom {+1 point} & a handkerchief {+1 point} from upstairs.  You can combine the two in inventory to obtain a chloroformed handkerchief {+2 points}.  You can exit the mansion & obtain a screwdriver from the (now empty) guard's hut {+2 points}.
If you need hints on any of these, look at sections (141) thro' (145).
You can then return to the conference room and proceed with section (138).
The above will raise this ending's point score to {282 points}

(144)    Walk down stairs --- Enter door on extreme left --- Walk out of mansion through the front door at the bottom of the screen (directly opposite the poster).
(145)    Outside the mansion walk East to the shed --- Talk to the robed guard just to get his attention --- Quickly use the chloroformed handkerchief on him --- Search the incapacitated guard & take his key ring --- Look at toolbox in hut ... Take screwdriver .................... {279}
(146)    Return West & enter mansion through window as in (129) --- Enter 1st door on the left --- Use chloroformed handkerchief on sleeping robed guard --- Open the wardrobe & take one of the Order's robes ... you put on robe & exit bedroom .................... {287}
(147)    Enter door on extreme left ... (inside, you don your robe automatically) --- 'Participate' in meeting of Order --- Look at matchbox on table & take it --- Exit room ... you need to visit the bathroom; hehehe ... (you disrobe automatically outside) .................... {290}
(148)    Look at the white steel door ... locked --- Use steel key that the old alcoholic gave you (from inventory) on white door ... enter mansion basement.
(149)    Look at poisonous green liquid in barrels --- Take some liquid from the barrel in the corner ... can't; it's dangerous --- Use plastic bag from inventory to get a sample of green liquid --- Open oven ... but adjusting controls won't help! .................... {292}

(152)    Look at green box & open it ... can't it's locked --- From inventory, use guard's key ring to open box --- Look at bomb inside ... it's unarmed, but leave it well alone! --- Look at crates & try opening them ... no go; you need something more than bare hands --- From inventory use iron pipe to prise open one of the crates ... full of weapons ... however, you can't take or use any --- Exit storeroom .................... {298}
(153)    Enter door at far right --- Enter door to the right of the stairs ... can't; it's locked --- From inventory, use guard's key ring to unlock door & enter what is probably just a closet  --- Meet George Anderson --- Untie him (i.e. interact with him) --- Talk to George & quiz him as to everything that's happened --- Exit closet .................... {300}
(iii) ~ Good ending.
(154)    Enter door at far left --- Enter door at extreme left --- Re-enter the white door to the basement ... you have to use the steel key again.
(155)    Throw chloroform (from inventory) into the fire in the boiler --- Everybody anaesthetized --- Jake manages to escape outside ... all members of Order captured --- Wow! ... Happy ending! {300 points}
