Dr. Watson is having a recurrent nightmare. He calls for Holmes to help him. He recounts the story of what happened to bring him to this state.


London 6th of September, 1894

At 221b Baker St., Dr. Watson arrives to eat breakfast. Holmes is undergoing one of his 'tedium' moods due to lack of a mystery to exercise his brilliant mind. Watson mentions that he should visit Barnes Bookstore and leaves.

As Holmes, look out the window to see a newspaper boy. Turn to the writing desk left of the window and pick up the matches. See that an icon appears at top right to show that a new item is in inventory. Right click to open the portfolio and then select items at bottom left. See a knife and the matches. If you click on an item and then right click to exit the page, see that the item will be at top right of the screen. To remove the item from the gameplay screen, go back to the items page and click that item again and then exit. Look around to get familiar on game movement - left click-hold move forward where you direct the mouse. Exit through the door on the left of the room. Go down and exit the building.

Go to the newspaper boy, one of the Baker St. Irregulars. Face him and click to talk to him. He mentions the latest news about a Scandinavian princess. Holmes gives him an errand. A newspaper is placed in the portfolio. Read the Strand in documents to learn about an event that will happen soon, an alignment of 7 stars. In this event a mysterious 8th star known as Formahaut might be observed.

Turn around and walk toward Sergeant Rufles. Learn that Barnes Bookstore is right and then left from Baker St. Go forward and turn right at Melcombe St. Talk to Miss Fleming, the flower seller standing at the corner of Glenworth St. Take a left and enter the bookstore on the left.

Barnes Bookstore:    Go close to the ladder and click the eye icon. Holmes will state that someone must have fallen off after seeing the scuff mark. Talk to Barnes at the counter. He mentions what and where the books for Holmes are. Go left of the counter to the table in front of the bookcases. Take the book on underwater fauna-fishes and to the right, take the Desperate Pirate book. Read both of them in documents. Go back to the counter and look at the flower on the window display - it is a sorry sight. Talk to Barnes again. Watch Holmes' brilliant deduction at work. Exit the store.


A mystery unfolds:

Capt. Stenwicks' house:    Walk back towards Baker St. but get hailed by Dr. Watson at Melcombe St. Talk to Watson and then enter the gate of his patient. Talk to Capt. Stenwick and learn about his missing Maori manservant, Baowpa. Talk to Sgt. Rufles twice to learn that this is just one of the cases of missing poor immigrants and his thoughts about the case.

Shed:    Go left of Rufles and go around to the back. See a shed that is the living quarters of the missing manservant. Look at the door and see that it is not forced. Look up to the lintel of the door and take a piece of cloth that got caught on a nail.

Enter and check the Maori drawing on the ground. It is of a man escaping waves that have flying fishes. Look close at the bowl at far wall. Zoom in and use the magnifying glass to see a ball. Take the ball. Read Holmes' observation under report in the portfolio. Exit the shed.

Grounds:    Check the back of the shed close to the wall. Look down and see footprints. Look close at the footprints. Use the magnifying glass and examine the prints. Measure the footprint. Take note that the right footprint is missing a nail. Move the lens to see and take a fish scale at top left of the prints.

Look up and see something caught in one of the twisted metal on top of the wall. Go around to the front, exit the garden, go left and around the corner.

Go forward and look at the other side of the wall with the twisted metals. Look down and see the footprints. Follow it to a gate that Holmes would say 'he doesn't need to go there'. Take the ladder. Use the ladder on the broken metal above the wall. Click on ladder to climb up and then take the fibre.

Go back to talk to Stenwick. Holmes deduces that there were 2 men; one of robust size and a young Hindu that kidnapped the Maori.

Analysis:    Automatically be back to Baker St. After ordering Watson to talk to the newspaper boy, he should go to the book store to find information about Maoris customs.

Click on the chair to start the analysis and get a close up of the table.

Piece of cloth - Take the piece of cloth in items and then click on the microscope with the gear icon. Once in close up view, click on the piece of cloth and Holmes will say 'interesting'. Right click to exit the scope view. Read reports to learn what Holmes observed about the cloth. The cloth is now gone from inventory.

Fish scales - Take the fish scales from items and click it on the microscope. Use the tweezers on the fish scales. Holmes will say that it is from a perch, a saltwater fish that is good for commercial sales. Read the report and see that it is now gone from inventory.

Plant fibre - Take the plant fibre from items and click it on the microscope. In close up, use tweezers to get a piece of stained rope. Holmes says to check it for the origin of the stain.

Place the stained rope on small plate of the analysis setup on the left. Take the bottles of water, solvent, acid and spirit of alcohol from the table. Click the solvent on the fibre on the plate and see it dissolve. The machine starts to analyze the dissolved fibre. Read the report and learn that it is coal soot.

Ball - Take the ball from item and place it under the microscope. Use the scalpel to cut it in two pieces. Holmes makes a comment that the mustard seed didn't completely ignite. Use the tweezers to get compound from ball.

Place the compound from ball on the plate of the analyzer on the left. Use acid on the compound from ball that is on the plate. See it dissolve. Use the match to light the candle and heat the dissolved compound. Watch the analysis. Read the report and learn that it is opium with some morphine and some unknown elements.

Click the chair to finish analysis. Holmes will now say to look for Watson.

As Watson:    Talk to the newspaper boy and learn that the Scandinavian princess' big bodyguard disappeared on the first day she arrived. After Watson tipped the newspaper boy, proceed to the bookstore.

At the bookstore, talk to Barnes and get reprimanded about patient confidentiality. Go to the middle bookcase and take the People at Earth's End from the table. Read it under documents to learn that notable dreams are drawn on the soil and that Maoris place significance to those dreams.

Go back to Baker's St. either by walking or use the map to jump from one point to another. See that the points are labeled. Talk to Holmes.

Quiz - From what part of London does one of the two kidnappers of the young Maori come from? Type using your computer's keyboard - Docks or Wharf or Thames. Click arrow or press enter key.

Find the kidnappers:    Open the map and jump to Wharf #13 by the river Thames.

Cursed Mermaid Pub:    Enter the bar on the right. Talk to the bartender about a sailor on boat with a coal fed boiler. He says to talk to Harper; his house with an anchor sign is after the bridge. Find out what ails the man drinking at the bar. His package of a wooden hand should have been delivered yesterday and it didn't come.

Harper's house:    Exit the bar and turn left. Go forward pass the bridge, down the stairs and forward to a brick building on the left. Check the door and see that it is locked. Go to the sacks at right of door and take the rope.

Nepalese house:    See a boy peeking out the window on the house across Harper's house. Enter the house and talk to the crying Nepalese woman. Harper went on a boat last night. Her 16 yrs. old son is missing and last seen with a man who works here and has a silver eye. Look close at the altar and take the silver Pelican medallion. Exit the house and turn to the other end of the road.

Postman:    See a man stagger and gets sick by the crates. Talk to the deliveryman and find out that he was forced to drink a bottle of something by a group of thugs. He woke up with his package gone. The bottle of moonshine is in items. Holmes says that the moonshine is made from turnips.

Cursed Mermaid Bar:    Use the map or walk back to the bar. Talk to the barman about the man with silver eye. Find out that it is 'Dirty' Sommers. He was hiring men for his boat to leave last night. He was edgy and had a knife in hand. Enter the first private curtain in the back of the bar. Look close and take note of the etching on the table.


Where are the kidnapped victims:

Smugglers:    Use the map to jump to Nepalese house. Go forward pass the sick postman. Turn right from the tower. Go forward and up the stairs. Enter the alley between the 2 buildings at the end of the path. Walk on the plank that is on top of a hole. See the yard littered with bottles and turnips under tarp. Holmes makes a comment about hiding under the left tarp.

Take the moonshine bottle from items and then click to open the door. Talk to the moonshiner. Click on door again to get parcel.

Take the medallion from items and then click on the door. This time the moonshiner says that Brannoch was given one by a dockworker with a red cap and harelip. Brannoch has now gone missing. The dockworker is at warehouse 12.

Cursed Mermaid Pub:    Use the map or walk back to the pub. In items, combine the knife with the parcel and get a fake hand with scraper. Give the fake hand to the drunken man. Take the hook he left on the bar.

Warehouse 12:    Go back to the tower close to the mailman who is now gone or use the map to go to the Nepalese house. Take the path left of the tower and right of the ship with the big wheel. Go forward to see a green door. Check the warehouse number at top right of the building. Turn right, forward and again turn right to the next path. Go forward to the 2 green doors across each other. Try to open the left green door - #12.

Open the door - While standing close to the door, look up and see a destroyed screen above the door.

In items, combine the hook and rope. Click the rope on the hole on the screen. The active spot of the broken screen is a bit touchy. Move around to get the hand cursor.

Now, it's Watson's turn. Talk to Holmes. Go to the right side of the building, around the corner and see dirty windows. Click-hold and move to wipe the window clean. See the green door inside the building.

The puzzle appears. You should see a padlock on the floor, the rope and hook and the lever lock of the door.

The object of the puzzle is to hook the padlock that is on the floor. Then click-hold-move the caught padlock to hit the lever of the door lock. The lever flips up. Enter the green door.

Note: I had a video glitch here even with the patch installed, game options and computer adjustments. I did not see the rope and hook. I moved the mouse down and then up. After the third try, I saw a floating padlock. I moved the padlock to hit the lever and I got through.

Take the iron bar on the floor at right. Go forward and look close at the items on the floor between 2 crates-boxes. It is an American passport for an Amos Colby. There's a demon drawn with blood. Check documents. Look close again and take the hatpin on the left. The point is bloody. Use the iron bar on the 2 crates.  The right box has sails. Take Bullseye lantern from the left crate. Holmes makes an observation that Watson caught on; the boxes are used as coffins.

Big door on the floor - Go to the big door on the floor. Examine the footprints below the big double doors on the floor. Click on the doors and note that there is no way the 2 heroes can open it. How can we open that?

Look up to the hanging things and around the room to see the makings of a possible solution. There is a rope over 2 pulleys, hanging cauldron and a faucet beside it.

Climb up the planks below the hanging cauldron. Move the cauldron to be under the faucet. Check by going down and see where the cauldron is positioned.

Go to the wall behind the metal contraption right of the door. Turn on the faucet close to the floor. This fills the cauldron with water.

Climb the plank, move forward and that pushes the cauldron as close to the ramp at far wall.

Climb the ramp by far wall and click on the rope hanging on a pulley. Then click on the cauldron and this ties the rope to the water filled pot.

Go to the door on the floor. Click the end of the rope and then click on the door. This ties the other end of the rope to the door on the floor.

Climb up the planks where the cauldron is located. Use knife on the rope that is hanging vertically. The cauldron drops and the door opens.

Temple:     Climb down and go forward until a chamber with a stand at the center.

Open temple door:    Use the lantern, place a hand over the stand at the center. See the cursor change to a glyph. On the walls are several written glyphs.

Move the glyph cursor over each of those 3 glyphs on one wall. See if the superimposed glyph looks familiar. If not, go to the other side of the stand and place hand over stand. Again superimpose the C looking glyph on the 3 glyphs on the wall.

One of the glyphs, bottom left of left wall when combined with the cursor glyph looks like the third symbol etched on the table by Dirty Sommers. So the wall drawings have only part of the glyphs.


Go to the door of the temple. On each side of the door are 3 glyphs. They are also incomplete glyphs etched by Dirty.

Press the glyphs in sequence etched by Dirty:    

Press the middle glyph left (half of the wing of the first glyph) of door.

Press the top glyph (part of Sommers second glyph) right of door.

Press the bottom glyph (part of Sommers third glyph) right of door.

Press the top glyph (part of Sommers fourth glyph) left of door. The door opens.

Inside temple - Look around the temple. See bizarre drawings on walls, mattresses of prisoners and strewn labels or pieces of paper.

Go to the left of the door and see pelican trinkets on the table. Holmes says they are decoys.

Go to the other side of the door and at the corner beside a mattress is a box of coal. Take some coal.

Walk the center aisle and at second to last right column, click and look close on the floor at the black drawing in the dust of a square with a cross inside.

At the other side of the column see clothes. Look close at the clothes and get an advertisement for Northwood Agency. It has a fingerprint on it.

Turn around and go to the corner at other side where there is a work bench. Check the spilled powder from a flask and Holmes says it is opium. Take the metal box with flower (Edelweiss) from the table. Holmes will investigate the contents later. Check the pitcher of water on the other bench and Holmes will say the water contains opiates.

Altar - Go up the steps and see a naked body on the sacrificial altar. He was tortured. Click the eye icon on the neck.

Look close on the right hand and use the magnifying lens to see that one of the fingers has dust on it. Looks like the fingerprint on the advertisement from the clothes below.

Look close on the left hand and use magnifying glass on the tip of the finger. See a puncture mark done by a hatpin and used to draw the picture on the American passport.

Pick up the broken statuette on the floor by his head. It is similar to the big one.

Look-click on either stele by the wall. Holmes wants to make a copy of the message. Use the advertisement on the drawing. Then use coal to get a tracing of the message. Listen to Holmes summarize what has happened.

After all are done here at the temple, see what happened to the victim's body. <shivers>

Baker St.:    Automatically be back at Holmes' apartment. Holmes sends off a copy of the message on the stele to brother Mycroft at the Diogenes Club.

Analysis of the black box with flower - Click on chair by the work bench to start analysis.

Open the box with flowers with the knife to get white powder. Use white powder on the microscope. Use the tweezers on the powder to get compound.

Place the compound on the plate on the analyzer on the left. Use match to light candle and Holmes says that it is similar to the compound tested from Stenwick's place - opium with morphine.

Holmes talks with Watson. Watson gives a clue about getting medical supplies and how they are delivered from other countries. Customs passes the crates-boxes with medical label and does not look closely on the contents. If they can get an intact label they will know which country sends these medical supplies.


Look for labels of illicit drugs:

Cursed Mermaid Pub:    Use the map to go back to the Pub at Wharf 13. Talk to the bartender about custom agent. Learn that Beddoes is usually at the pier near a ship.

Customs House:    Jump to the Nepalese house and turn around. Go to the Customs house on the left pass the house with anchor. Go to the middle aisle and take the letter tacked on the box from Philo to O'Reily as to why he is not there. Look at the register and learn that the special import goods are stored in Warehouse 16.

Warehouse 16:    Use map to jump to the pub or wharf 13. Go to warehouse 16 at right side of the dock. The door has 'general strike' and 'factory closed' signs on the door.

Look down and close on the footprints on the tar. Use magnifying lens at top shoeprint to see that it is missing a nail. Look close again and measure the footprint. It is also size 7 like the one at Stenwick's place. Use lens on the key at right to take it.

Follow the tracks of the footprints. Go down the stairs to a door close to the water. Use the key on door. Enter and then look down to take a crate tag-label. It has the Black Edelweiss Institute on it. Check documents to see the label.

Baker St.:    Go back to Baker St. There's a letter from Mycroft on the table. Holmes summarizes what happened and who the victim is at the temple.

Quiz - Where should you go to continue your investigation? Type in using your keyboard - Switzerland. Click arrow or press enter key.

Watson is to book 2 for the continent and check if there is a Black Edelweiss in Switzerland. The game is on.

Train:    Holmes tells Watson that they will part company in Lyon. Watson is to continue to Black Edelweiss Institute and Holmes will investigate from the other side. If Watson needs help, contact Superintendent Bilger at the Valley.


Black Edelweiss 11th of September, 1894

Watson arrives at Black Edelweiss in a carriage. Knock on door and Kuntz welcomes Watson. You are to talk to Fraulein Muller. See a female patient meet her visiting parents. Talk to Fraulein Muller.

Watson, while talking to Dr. Gygax about learning their treatment procedure, sees a man approach the desk and announces himself as Amos Colby. Watson tells Gygax that that Amos is a fake and as an explanation admits to Dr. Gygax his reason for coming here - to check for an employee that is dealing in dangerous trade. Watson was sent off to come back tomorrow. Watch how Gygax in a few moments diagnosed the fake Amos to have a personality breakdown and related paranoia. The man was taken away by the male nurses. This event has untoward effect on the female patient.

Examination room (Leitung):    The female patient is on the table and is being treated. You as fake Amos are leaning forward on a table. Take the bottle of sedative. Take the syringe with sedative and then use it on the glass of water.


Learn if the London kidnappers have accomplices here:

Cell:    Holmes says to learn if the London kidnappers have accomplices here. Holmes has removed his Amos disguise. In items, see the hat, topcoat and hairpiece. In Documents, read Answer from Mycroft and Strange Poem, the translation of the temple stele message.

Check the other occupant of the cell. Take the meal tin and spoon above the sleeping man.

Make a fake body - Go to the empty mattress. Place the yellow jug and bolt of blanket on the mattress. Place hat on 'head' and coat over the 'body'.

Lock - Use the spoon on the lock. See the lock on close up

The object of the puzzle is to arrange the numbers in the right order from 1- 10.

The rows immediately above and below the numbers allow insertion of multiple numbers. The top and lowest rows allow only one number.

The numbers have to be inserted in sequence. Click hold and insert a number in a row. Below is one solution. Door opens.

Laboratory (Labor):    Exit the cell. The door on the left is locked. Turn to right and go forward pass an archway on the right. Turn left on the corner and see a note on the left by the laboratory door. Read the note by Dr. Gygax. Enter the lab and Holmes warns about being careful or finding a way to neutralize the nurse, maybe put him to sleep. Press the Ctrl key to crouch down as seen by the silhouette at bottom left of screen.

Crouch forward to the first workbench on the right. At the bottom shelf, take 3 syringes: 12mm, 15mm and 18 mm in diameters. Crouch around and see a scale on the top of this work bench and a doll on the left by the wall. The male nurse is in the grilled chemical-drug room. Exit the room.

Maurizio:    Go left - you can uncrouch now; press the Ctrl key again. Maurizio got hold of Holmes. Talk to him; he wants the crowbar left by the workman that fixes the pipes at the maintenance room at end of corridor. If you do not give him the crowbar, he will announce your presence. The key to that room is on a crack by the door.

Maintenance room:    Go forward to end of the corridor. Read the note by the door. Click on the crack left of the door to get key. Use key on door and then enter. See an anvil on the floor on the right. Pick up the crowbar from floor.

Something to neutralize the male nurse in the lab - Go to the box right of door and pick up the caliper.

Go to other corner of room and see 4 pipes on top of boxes. You can only pick up one pipe at a time.

Measure each pipe using the caliper and see that there are a 10, an 18, a 16 and a 22 mm in diameter pipes.

You have a 12, a 15 and an 18 mm in diameter syringes. You need a bit of space to place the syringe in the pipe. Take the 16 mm in diameter pipe.

Combine the sedative and the 15mm syringe. Then combine that 15mm syringe with sedative with the 16 mm pipe to get a blowpipe. Exit the room.

Maurizio:    Go back to Maurizio and give him the crowbar. Watch as he breaks the lock and warns Holmes not to get caught or they will take you down below, to the depths of Hell. Hear the male nurses spot Maurizio.

Laboratory (Labor):    Enter the lab and crouch down. Take the blowpipe from items. Crouch to the middle of the workbench closest to the nurse. Automatically, Holmes uses the blowpipe. The nurse goes down for the count.

Enter the drug-chemical room. Look close at the sleeping nurse and take the note-letter from his body. Read the letter in documents and learn about Gygax and stones. Look at the 2 canisters right of the nurse. The one on the right is potash which can be used to make a spectacular smoke.

Look at the shelf and see pink crystals. Take the Black Edelweiss metal box similar to the ones sent to London behind the pink crystals. So, this confirms the source of the drugs in London. To the right of the shelf are chlorine bottles. Turn around and read the ledger-book left of the gate. It has a letter from Schnitzer of Grasshopper Company of Zurich to Dr. Gygax concerning a discount of items usually ordered by Gygax that they overstocked for future transactions with the doctor. Exit the lab.


Take care of the men in white:

Examination room:    Time to check to see what happened upstairs after Maurizio's incident. Go right to the corner and take the stairs on the left. Pick up the bunch of keys on the floor by the left door. Go to the other door across the stairs. Holmes warns about needing to not be noticed. Go to the cabinet on the left and see that it is locked. Use spoon to open the cabinet. Take a white coat and automatically be wearing it.

Aviary-garden:    Exit through the door right of cabinet and enter the aviary-garden on the left. See talking birds in a cage at center of the room. Talk to the female patient - Gerda. She is upset because Bauer has taken the bird feed and the birds have not been fed for 2 days. Listen to Bauer, he says he wants to free the birds so that the men in white will run around and not notice him. Hmm...

Look around and see a water fountain on the corner left of the door to main reception room. To save time later, use the meal tin on water to get a meal tin with water. The other exit has a male nurse standing reading a note on the wall. Exit out of garden and look at the doors across the corridor.

Read the name above the door on the left and see that it is Fraulein Muller's room. Exit back to the examination room through the door at end of the corridor.

Check other patients:    Go down back to the lower patient cells and turn left. Use the bunch of keys on the door left of your old cell. Talk to Gerda twice at far left cell. Heidi left her. The door to the laundry is not accessible.

Go back through the door and turn left pass the lab. Go left pass the maintenance room and use the key to unlock the door at end of the corridor. Go pass the first left aisle and go forward. You might see a male nurse going around. Holmes says to take care of the nurses so that he can freely talk to the patients and go around. Let's see if we can put into action what Bauer at the aviary wanted.

Becker - Go left to first cell on the left of the second corridor. Talk to Becker. He's wearing a straightjacket! He wants pink crystals. Go to lab and now you can take some pink crystals. Go back to Becker and he says that pink crystals needs to be dissolved in water. If you haven't yet, go back to the garden aviary and use the meal tin on the water at the fountain. Combine the pink crystals with the meal tin with water to get Becker's medicine. Give Becker his medicine.

Talk to Becker and Becker says that the girl that wants the doll knows where the key to the aviary is located.

Gerda - Go back to the lab and now you can take the doll. Go back to Gerda that wants Heidi. Her cell is through the door left of Holmes' old cell. Go right of the lab and pass through the door and talk to the patient at far left.

Give Gerda the doll. Learn what she did to the bad man and why. Find out that the aviary key is in the bad man's room across the aviary. But it is the female's room now. The key to that room is hidden in Heidi's stomach so that the bad man will not come back. Heidi gives Holmes a present - the key to the female's room.

Fraulein Muller's room - Go back up the stairs and out to the corridor across the garden. Look up to read which room is Frau Muller's.

Use the key to open door. Look around the room. Take the hanging macramé pot holder right of desk. Take the macramé wrapped bottle, paper on desk and spectacles. Read the paper-note in documents. Go to the last room with the cabinet. Take the key from the white shirt hanging in the cabinet.

Time to free the birds - Go to the aviary and use the key on the lock on the cage left of Gerda. Oh My - what a ruckus! At least Bauer is insanely happy!


Search the rest of the asylum:

Holmes says that it is time to search the rest of the asylum.

Kitchen:   Go around to the other corridor across the garden. Read the note left of the door to the kitchen (kuche). Seems like they have problems with fire here. Try entering and Holmes says something about a making smoke to cause Frau Mayer to leave.

Make a smoking device - Go to the fountain and fill blue bottle with water of fountain at the garden.

Go down to the lab and enter the chemical room where the nurse is.

Use the meal tin on the potash to get meal tin with potash. Take bottle of chlorine from shelf.

Go to the workbench close to the door. Use the meal tin with potash on the scale. Now that has the correct amount.

Place the bottle of water on the scale to know the capacity of the bottle.

In items, combine the measured bottle of water with chlorine to get bottle with chlorine.

Combine the measured meal tin with potash to the bottle with chlorine water to get smoking device.

Go back to the kitchen and click the smoking device on the door. Hear the cook yell 'fire'.

Enter and look around. Take the truss for roast beef on the table and the note on the table by the left wall. Read the note to learn the bell signal for the tray - 3 short then a long will send the lift back to the doctor's office. It will be blocked at the first basement and have to go down to pick it up.

Second basement:    Go down to  first basement and talk to Becker. Learn about the foreigners that arrive and disappeared. They speak different dialects and not understanding each other. None are mad. Later when they were downstairs, they would speak one language repeatedly.

Enter through gate - Go to the gate at end of corridor. Study the 2 levers: the left one opens the near gate and the right one opens the far gate. It needs 2 people to get through to hold the levers.

Go to the maintenance room and pick up the anvil. Take the trolley right of Becker's cell.

Hold down the right lever - Place the trolley under the right lever. Use the macramé pot holder on the right lever. Use the anvil on the pot holder. Now they are supported by the trolley.

Use the truss on the trolley and it will automatically be stretched out on the floor to the inside of the gates.

Pull the left lever to open the gate here. Enter through and then pull the truss rope on the floor to pull out the trolley holding the anvil up. The anvil drops and pulls the lever to open the far gate. Voila!

Go down the winding stairs.

Wolff:    Try to talk to Wolff, another patient in a straightjacket at first cell. He does multiplications. He talks only to a Professor Schwartz. Holmes says maybe seeing his medical files would be helpful.

Go to the corridor on the right and forward to the end. See Dr. Gygax' office is locked.

Disposal Room:    Go back to the nearest intersection of corridors and turn right. Right to another corridor and try to enter the room after Sigmund's.

Lock - This is the same principle as the lock in Holmes' cell. Use the spoon and see the numbers.

The object of the puzzle is to arrange the numbers in the right order from 1- 10.

The rows immediately above and below the numbers allow insertion of multiple numbers. The top and lowest rows allow only one number.

The numbers have to be inserted in sequence. Click hold and insert a number in a row. Below is one solution. Door opens.


Enter and look at gruesome things. Look down the well and see where the victims are disposed. Take the key on the ground left of the door. Exit and go back to Dr. Gygax' office at the end of parallel corridor.

Dr. Gygax' Office:    Use the key on door. Enter and take the poker left of the fireplace. Go right of door and see a table close to the sink. Check the 'Worship of Ghouls' book and the skinned head.

Open the cabinet left of the head and read Wolff's record. Get a photo of Prof. Schwartz.

Go to the other side of the desk. Take the classroom key and the note. Read the Burgher's letter to Dr. Gygax in documents to learn about the Swiss bank's auction of Gygax' jewels and the amount collected. Use the poker to open the top right drawer of the desk. Take and read the notes in documents: Letter from various banks concerning more stone transactions and about a handwritten letter concerning the master. It smells of iodine. Read the personal notes of Holmes.

Experiment room:    Use the poker on the door left of the cabinet. Enter the room and look at the blackboard. It has phonetic lessons.

Look at the surgical bed's head brace. Go to the other side and see the battery with crank starter to stimulate patients.

Sign of the Great Old Ones - Climb the stairs and at the landing look down. See the pentagram and the leviathan at the center. Go up to the next floor and Holmes says that 'belief is his strength, perhaps it is also his weakness'.

Pick up the white panel on the left close to the stairs. Holmes needs blood. Use the white panel on the pool of blood at top of stairs.

Sign puzzle - See bloody squiggles on the left and blank space on the right. Click on a squiggle and it is reproduced on the blank space.

The aim of the puzzle is to draw the sign of the Great Old Ones. Click the squiggles that were in the yellow X of the picture below.

Go forward towards Ashmat. Watch Holmes use the sign and chants. Ashmat collapses.

Go to the top of the lighthouse - Climb up and be blocked by a door. Use iron bar on door.

Enter and a Hindu goes down to meet Watson. Meet Dirty Sommers. Dirty taunts Holmes that while his friend the Hindu is alive, no one can find the key. Before Dirty falls through the window, he says 'He has it deep and safe in his own'.

Climb up and take the paper on the table. Read the Directive of Sect in documents.

Climb up to the top and check the door. Automatically, Holmes and Watson are back down to the lower level.

Quiz - Where did the Hindu hide the key? Type in - stomach. Click enter key or the arrow.

Holmes talks to Watson about the key. Sword! Watson did the deed and gives Holmes the key.

Top of lighthouse:   Climb up again. Use the key on the door. Exit and meet Lord Rochester. Watson cannot delay the hooded men.

Light - Light destroys darkness.

Review the Directive of the Sect in documents - ...turn off the lighthouse so that the light of the master replaces it. Otherwise, the dream will not be fulfilled.

Face the light source of the lighthouse. See a green bottle on the left and blue bottle on the right.

Pick up the empty bottle from the floor.

Face the blue bottle and put the empty bottle at the bottom ring. Turn the wheel to upend the blue bottle. Take the blue bottle.

Face the green bottle and place the blue bottle on the bottom ring. Turn the wheel to get the blue bottle on top.

There is light.

Watch Lord Rochester be taken by the Light of Abyss.

Back at Baker St., Holmes summarizes what happened.


Did genius create evil or evil create genius?

What troubles me more is the future. A ticking bomb, waiting.

A danger wearing a face I know far too well.
