The game begins at St. George’s Book Store, located in the French Quarter of New
Orleans, Louisiana. After you’ve watched the opening scenes, talk to Grace
Nakimura; the gal sitting at the desk. Get all of your messages (the last one
will be from Gabe’s pal, Mosely). When you’re done, pick up the tweezers and
magnifying glass that are on the table near the bottom of your screen.
Walk over to the bookshelf and use the HAND icon on the upper left corner of the
bookshelf to find a book by Heinz Ritter. When Gabriel has finished reading it,
click on the opposite corner to find a book about snakes. When he’s finished
reading that book, open up the cash register and take the red gift certificate
you find inside. Walk back over to the table and read the newspaper and this
will become pretty much your daily routine throughout most of the game.
Leave the shop and let’s get familiarized with the map. To get from place to
place, click on the corresponding icon, it’s as simple as that. There’s also a
button to the left and right sides of the map that says ‘New Orleans Map’, you
would have to click on this if you have to go somewhere outside the French
Quarter. Our first stop is to Grandma Knight’s house, and to get there, click on
the ‘New Orleans Map’ and click on the icon that looks like a portrait of
Grandma Knight. Gabe will hop on his motorcycle and drive on over there.
After Gabe and Gran have sat down, use the QUESTION icon on Gran and ask her
about Gabe’s parents and grandfather until she can say no more about them. After
that, leave the dialogue tree and go up the stairs near Gabe to the attic. In
the attic, there’s a book that’s sitting on the chair near Gabe, so pick it up
and then go into your inventory. Use the READ icon on the sketch book and take a
look at the pictures you see inside.
Leave the inventory and use the OPERATE icon on the clock that’s sitting
underneath the skylight. In the close-up view, use the PUSH/PULL icon on the
clock hands and set it so it shows 3:00 and then move the dial around the clock
face until the icon that looks like a dragon is above the 12. Use the OPERATE
icon on the key and a small drawer should open. Get the photo and letter that
you find inside and go into your inventory and read the letter.
Go downstairs and speak to Gran about Heinz Ritter until she can’t tell you
anymore. Leave the house, and on the map, click on the French Quarter icon and
the click on the PD Badge icon to go to the New Orleans Police Station.
When you arrive at the station, use the QUESTION icon on the desk sergeant. His
name is Frick. Ask him about Detective Mosely and then ask him about the
photographs. Exit the dialogue tree and you’ll get the photos.
Go into your inventory and open up the manila envelope and look at the murder
picture. You can also look at the other picture if you want, but anyway, leave
the station and go to Jackson Square (the icon looks like a park bench). Go to
the northwest section of the circle (one screen west, one screen north) and here
you can see a mime who likes to follow people around whenever they walk too
close to him.
As the saying goes; monkey see, monkey do. Walk close to the mime so that he
starts to follow you. Head back to where you saw the motorcycle cop, but be
careful not to let other people get too close to the mime, otherwise he’ll lose
interest in Gabe and follow them and you’ll have to start over.
Once you finally make it over to the cop, the mime will start acting like a
monkey and the cop will chase him off. While he is gone, use the OPERATE icon on
the motorcycle and you’ll overhear a conversation between the dispatcher and a
paramedic who got lost. When you’re finished, leave Jackson Square and head to
the crime scene (click on the New Orleans map button and then on the icon that
looks like police tape).
When you arrive, watch the sequence. You’ll get to meet a woman named Malia
Gedde, who comes from a wealthy family. When it’s finished, look at the vévé
marks on the ground near where the uniformed cop was standing. Do you see that
patch of grass on the right side of your screen? They may be hard to notice, but
there are some marks in the grass that I need you to look at. Use the magnifying
glass on those marks once you find them. Bring out your tweezers and use them on
what appears to be a scale that you find there.
Leave the close-up view and use the sketchbook on the vévé marks. Go over to the
lakeshore and pick up some clay, and then leave the crime scene. Go to the
police station. Ask Frick about Mosely and he’ll let you go on back. Use the
OPEN icon on Mosely’s door, and inside, use the QUESTION icon on Mosely and ask
him about the patterns, and then ask him about the other six patterns. Leave
Mosely’s office for a moment and talk to female officer, Franks, and when the
list of choices comes up, ask her to get a file for you.
If you want, you can go into your inventory and open up the folder to see what
is inside. When you’re finished, put the file on Franks’ desk and go back into
Mosely’s office. Use the QUESTION icon on him again and ask him about the
photographs. Tell him that a cop/author photo might be nice, and Mosely will go
and bring in Officer Franks. Watch the little sequence and when a list of
choices comes up; say that you need to go check your hair.
Take the file off of Franks’ desk and then use it on the copier near Mosely’s
door. After that, put the file back on Franks’ desk and go back into Mosely’s
office. When you are able to, leave the station and go to the Dixieland Drug
Store (the icon looks like a voodoo doll).
When you’re inside, read the sign that is sitting to the far left side of the
counter and then use the murder photo on the man. Make a note that he says the
phrase, ‘cabrit sans cor’. Leave the shop and go to St. George’s Book Shop (the
icon looks like a suit of armor). When you arrive, talk to Grace and ask her to
do some research on Malia Gedde. Leave the dialogue tree and the first day will
come to a close.
Watch the opening scene and then go through your daily routine. Leave the
bookstore and head over to the police station. Ask Frick about Mosely and then
use the OPERATE icon on the thermostat that the maintenance worker was playing
with when you first entered. Change the temperature so that it is at least 75
degrees (setting it higher than that is okay too). Go into Mosely’s office and
ask him for some coffee. While he’s gone, take the badge off of his jacket.
Leave Mosely’s office and waltz on over to Jackson Square.
Go to the northeast corner of the Square. Leave this section and then reenter.
Watch as the wind blows the artist’s painting away. Head over to the southwest
corner and notice that there is a boy tap dancing for the hot dog vendor. Use
the gift certificate on the vendor and you’ll get a Lucky Dog. Use the hot dog
on the boy and he’ll help you out whenever you need it. Use the TALK icon on him
and ask him if he can fit through the bars that are around the statue.
He’ll get the painting that ended up behind the bars and give it to you. Take
the painting to the northeast corner and give it to the artist. He’ll help you
out whenever you need it as well, so use the six patterns drawing on him and
then use the pattern that you got from the crime scene at Lake Pontchartrain.
Leave Jackson Square and go to the Gedde Estate (click on the New Orleans map
button and then on the mansion icon).
When you arrive, use the OPERATE icon on the door and the butler will answer the
door. Tell him that you would like to see Malia Gedde and that you DO have
official business. When he asks who you are, show him Mosely’s badge and he will
announce you. When Malia enters the room, use the QUESTION icon and pick these
choices in order:
1) Voodoo (ask her about this twice)
2) Lake Pontchartrain
3) Flirt with her
As a result, Gabe will be kicked out of the house, so leave the estate and go to
the Voodoo Museum (go to the French Quarter and click on the African mask icon).
Here, you’ll get to meet Dr. John. Ask him about Voodoo, and then ask him about
Current Voodoo until he repeats himself. Do the same for Historical Voodoo and
Marie Laveau. Leave the shop and go to the St. Louis Cemetery #1 (Click on the
angel statue icon).
When you get there, use the QUESTION icon on the watchman and ask him about
Marie Laveau until he repeats himself and then ask him about Other Marked Tombs.
Use your sketchbook on the symbols that were left on the Laveau tomb. When
you’re finished, leave the cemetery and go to Magentia Moonbeam’s residence
(click on the crystal ball icon).
At Magentia’s, use the QUESTION icon and ask her about these topics in order.
2) St. John’s Eve
A problem that some people have with this part is that they can’t get the Snakes
topic to come up. In this case, just ask her about Voodoo and St. John’s Eve
until she starts repeating herself. When you ask her about Grimwald, ask her to
show Gabe how she handles the snake and you’ll be treated with a dance from
Magentia Moonbeam. While she’s dancing, you’ll regain control. Take the
snakeskin that is sitting in the snake’s cage and when she’s all done dancing,
show her the tomb message you got from the cemetery and she’ll translate it for
you. However, she’ll get hung up on the words ‘fwet kash’.
After that, go into your inventory and use the magnifying glass on the
snakeskin, and you’ll discover that it doesn’t match the scale that you found at
the lake. Leave here and go to the Dixieland Drug Store.
When you enter, an elderly lady named Madame Cazaunoux will follow you in.
Listen as she explains to Willy that one of her neighbors’ as been torturing her
with some weird Voodoo stuff, and when she leaves, ask Willy about animal masks
and then about Willy Jr. He will tell you that he’ll sell the mask for no less
than $100. Leave the shop and go back to the bookstore.
Once there, ask Grace to do some research on Madame Cazaunoux. After you leave
the dialogue tree, the second day will end.
Watch the opening scene (notice that it appears to be the same thing every time,
but you get to see a little bit more than the previous time). Ask Grace for all
of your messages, and be sure to ask for Wolfgang Ritter’s phone number. Go
through your daily routine, and if a man named Bruno walks in and asks about the
painting, sell it to him.
Go through the curtain near Grace’s desk to enter Gabriel’s studio. Go into the
bathroom and take the small red bottle of hair gel that’s in the cabinet. Go
into your inventory and look at the torn page that Grace gave you. Use the
OPERATE icon on the telephone and click the ON button. Dial 555-1280 to get
Madame Cazaunoux’s residence. After that, dial 555-6170 to get the Cajun
Critters Animal Clinic. When a list of choices comes up, ask if they have Madame
Cazaunoux as a patient and when your second set of choices comes up, say ‘I’m
worried about Castro. He’s missed three dance lessons’. After you’re finished,
dial 49-09-324-3333 to get Schloss Ritter, Wolfgang Ritter’s residence. Listen
to what he has to say and then leave the bookstore and go to Jackson Square.
Go to the northwest corner and talk to the artist to get your completed pattern.
After that, walk over to the northwest corner and walk towards the
fortuneteller, and she should start dancing. If not, talk to her and she will.
While she is dancing, she’ll drop her veil, so pick it up. Go into your
inventory and use the magnifying glass to inspect the veil. You’ll notice that
there is a snake scale clinging to it, so use your tweezers on the veil to pick
it off. Give the veil back to the fortuneteller and she’ll give you a free palm
reading. She’ll become shocked and what she sees, and notice her voice when she
says ‘There…are…forces’. She’ll then run off, leaving Gabe puzzled. Be sure to
check out the new snake scale, but it won’t match the scale from the lake. Leave
the Square and go to the bookstore.
If you haven’t sold your painting to Bruno yet, do it now. If he doesn’t show up
right away, wait a bit and he will. Once you’ve sold the painting, you’ll have
$100 in your pocket. Ask Grace to do some research on the vévé pattern that you
got back from the artist. Leave the store and go to the Dixieland Drug Store.
When you get to the store, give the $100 to Willy and you’ll get Willy Jr. and a
lagniappe (as Gabe says, everyone in New Orleans knows it means ‘a little
something extra’) since your purchase was over $50. Exit the shop and go to the
Don’t bother asking Frick about Mosely, just head on back to his office. When
you enter, watch the sequence and when it’s over, leave and go to St. Louis
Cemetery #1. Go two screens to the right and watch the sequence between Malia
and Gabe. When it’s finished, leave the cemetery and go to Tulane University
(click on the New Orleans map button, and click on the graduate’s mortarboard
You can finally relax, so listen to the long (and boring) lecture. When it’s
finished, go into Professor Hartridge’s office (it’s through the door on the
left near the stage). Use the vévé pattern on Hartridge and then show him the
murder photo. Use the QUESTION icon on him and ask him about cabrit sans cor’
and black Voodoo. After you’ve got what you needed, leave the university and go
to the St. Louis Cathedral (go into the French Quarter, and click on the icon
that looks like the top half of a church).
Open the door on the far right to enter a closet of sorts. Inside, pick up a
priest’s collar from the box on the left hand side of the closet and pick up the
black robe as well. Leave the cathedral and go to Madame Cazaunoux’s residence
(the dog icon).
While you’re standing outside, use the priest’s outfit on Gabe and then the hair
gel. Use the OPERATE icon on the doorknocker. When she answers the door and
you’re presented with choices, say that you are Father McLaughlin. She’ll let
you in, and use the QUESTION icon on her and ask her about cabrit sans cor. When
she asks you what you think it means, say ‘goat without horns’. Ask her about
human sacrifice, real Voodoo queens, and Voodoo hounfour (temple). When you can,
use the clay on the snake bracelet to make an impression of it. When the
sequence is over, leave the house and go to Grandma Knight's house and ask her
about Wolfgang Ritter. After that, leave her house and go to Napoleon House
(the icon looks like a bust of Napoleon).
Once there, ask Stonewall, the bartender, about Voodoo and then ask him about
the bar patrons twice and then about Sam and Voodoo. Afterwards, use the
gamblin’ oil on Sam (the guy with the purple jacket). Choose the first option
all the way and watch the sequence. After Sam beats Markus, use the clay
impression on Sam. Leave the Napoleon House and the third day will come to a
This day is short, so go through your daily routine and then go over to Napoleon
House. Watch the little sequence, and Sam will give you a completed snake
bracelet. Leave and go to the Jackson Square Overlook (the icon looks like the
top view of a pair of binoculars).
NOTE: If you want to, go to Jackson Square first and go to the northeast corner.
You will see Crash hanging out with a drummer. If you get too close to Crash,
he’ll just saunter off somewhere else. I don’t believe this will affect any
later gameplay (I got this part from the Sins of the Fathers novel by Jane
At the Overlook, use the OPERATE icon on the far left pair of binoculars. If you
look towards the northeast corner of the Square, you’ll see Crash talking to a
drummer. Leave the Overlook and go to the St. Louis Cathedral.
You’ll see that Crash came here after he was finished talking to the drummer,
and he is now hanging out in one of the church pews. Use the snake bracelet on
him and he’ll become paranoid when he sees that you have it. He’ll tell you
about the snake tattoo that he has on his chest. Ask him about drummers and the
Voodoo hounfour. After you’re done asking him these, watch as he dies (but
Look at Crash (ugly, isn’t he?) and open up his shirt. Use the sketchbook on the
tattoo and then leave the cathedral. The fourth day will end here.
At the beginning of the day, you’ll get a package from Wolfgang Ritter. Go
through your daily routine and go into your inventory and read both the letter
and journal that you just got. Ask Grace to do some research on Rada drums.
Leave the store and go to Tulane University.
Go into Hartridge’s office and you’ll find out that Hartridge is dead (Oh no,
not another one!). Search his desk and you’ll get his notes. Leave the
university and go to the Voodoo Museum. The first thing you’ll notice is that
the lights are off. If you’re really thorough, you’ll notice that there is
something green hiding above you. As soon as you’re done looking, you’ll see
that green thing drop down on you and start to choke you. When you have control,
use the OPERATE icon on the light switch next to the door and Gabe will turn on
the lights, and the green thing was actually Dr. John’s snake. Dr. John will
come in and tell Gabe that the museum was closed and they weren’t expecting any
visitors. Leave the museum and go to the bookstore.
When you first enter, Grace will wonder what happened to Gabe and notice that he
looks a little ‘green’. She’ll then notice something on Gabe and she’ll take it
off and put it in the ashtray. Use the tweezers on the small green ashtray and
you’ll find that it was a snake scale that Grace took off. Use the magnifying
glass on the scale to find out it’s exactly like the scale you found at the
lake! Leave the store and go to the cemetery.
Use the sketchbook on the new set of marks on the tomb. Go into your inventory
and use that set of codes on the ones you had translated before to decipher part
of the new message. Wait until the watchman leaves and then pick up the brick
and use it on the tomb.
This puzzle is the one puzzle I keep getting emails about, so before you do
ANYTHING, pay attention to what I say next!!!
When the interface first comes up, read the message that is showing right now.
It should read: DJ KEEP E?ES ON GK B?T DO NOT HAR?
At the top of the window, you should see a couple buttons labeled ERASE MESSAGE
(or something like that), NEXT MESSAGE, and EXIT.
Click on the NEXT MESSAGE button. Notice that this message reads: DJ CONCLAVE
TONIGHT BRING FWET KASH (this is the message Magentia Moonbeam translated for
The message I would like you to write on the tomb is DJ BRING SEKEY MADOULE and
if you were paying attention this puzzle should be easy. The missing letters are
Y, U, and M. E?ES should be EYES, B?T should be BUT, and HAR? should be HARM.
Let’s see if you can write DJ BRING SEKEY MADOULE on the tomb now. Once you’re
finished and Gabe hasn’t erased the message off of the tomb, leave the cemetery
and go to Jackson Square.
Go to the northwest corner and talk to the fortuneteller. Notice her appearance
when you talk to her, because it appears she was being possessed or something.
She’ll warn you to stay away from Malia Gedde and then she’ll mysteriously
disappear. Leave the Square and let’s go check on Mosely over at the police
Like with the Crash interview, just head on back to Mosely’s office. Use the
QUESTION icon on Mosely and ask him to reopen the case. A few people have
emailed me about this because they couldn’t get Mosely to reopen the case, so
pay attention to this part if you want to get through it. Ask him to reopen the
case, and he says he won’t do it unless you can give him a reason why he should.
For your reason, show him the reconstructed vévé pattern, then Hartridge’s
notes, and then the 1810 newspaper clipping, and then Dr. John’s snake scales.
Mosely will become convinced and he’ll reopen the case. Leave the police station
and what do you know, the fifth day has already ended.
At the beginning of the day, Grace will walk in and she’ll be freaked out when
she sees a near dead rooster on the floor surrounded by some sort of sign.
Gabriel will come out of his studio and tell Grace to get some coffee while he
cleans up the mess. Before she leaves, Grace will become a bit paranoid as she
realizes that the Voodoo murderers now know where Gabe lives. Gabe will then
reassure her that everything is okay.
After that sequence, Grace will give you the Rada drum book. Go through your
daily routine and pick up the envelope that will eventually come through the
mail slot. Go into your inventory and open up the envelope to find out that it
was dropped off by Mosely. Use the tattoo tracing on Grace and when the list of
choices comes up, say that you’re going to a costume party. When the second set
comes up, say if you’re jealous… and when the sequence is over, go to the
Go to the southwest corner and talk to the beignet vendor. Here are the choices
you should choose:
1) Haven’t I seen you before?
2) Didn’t you used to be at Royal and Conti?
3) Why don’t you go back there?
4) I think you should go back to Royal and Conti.
Leave the Square and go to the police station.
This next part can be frustrating if you have a faster computer. To get through
this next part, if you are playing the version of Gabriel Knight 1 that came
with the Gabriel Knight Mysteries limited edition box set, then there is a turbo
utility that you can use to slow down your computer. I wouldn’t recommend it
though because it doesn’t really work. Go to Download.com and get CPUKiller 2.0.
When you have it installed, run the program and move the slider so that the Slow
Down Factor is at least 30%. Click on the Start button within the program and
let’s continue with Gabriel Knight. Just be sure you leave CPUKiller running
When Gabriel arrives at the station, the beignet guy you talked to at the Square
will show up outside. Franks and Frick will leave to go buy some beignets. While
they’re gone, high tail it into Mosely’s office by opening up the swinging door
and then using the brass key on Mosely’s door. If Frick happens to come back
while you’re on your way, don’t worry about it. As he is sitting at his desk,
he’ll start to doze off, and while he’s asleep, you can try entering Mosely’s
Once you’re in Mosely’s office, you can shut down CPUKiller for now if you have
it. Anyway, open up the lower right brown desk drawer and use the HAND icon on
it and Gabe will bring out a tracker and two signal devices. Leave the station
and go back to the Square.
Go to the northeast corner and use the Rada drum book on the drummer. The
translation for his drumming is ‘call conclave, tonight, swamp’ so be sure to
click on those to get the points. After that, leave the Square and go to the
Use a signal device on the small coffin (the sekey madoulé) near the door and
Gabriel will slip one in. Leave the museum and go to Bayou St. John (click on
the New Orleans map button and click on the tree icon).
This next part isn’t terribly difficult, but I guess I should explain it Use the
tracking device (not a signal device) on Gabriel. You’ll notice a small blip on
the tracker screen in the lower right hand corner of your screen. To figure
where the blip will take you, if it is in the absolute north (if the blip lays
right on the line), then go directly north. If it’s in the southwest corner,
then go directly southwest if you can. Sometimes there might be stuff like trees
in the way, so go as close as you can in the direction you’re supposed to and go
to the next screen.
If you figured this part out, then you should find yourself near the entrance to
the conclave. Before entering, use the alligator mask on Gabe, and he’ll put in
on and then automatically enter. When Dr. John walks up to Gabriel and asks him
the first question, reply ‘Damballah’. When he asks who the destroyer of men is,
say ‘Ogoun Badagris’. Sit back, relax, and watch the long sequence. The sixth
day will end here.
In Gabriel’s studio, pick up the flashlight that sits on the right side of his
dresser. Use the OPERATE icon on the phone and call Wolfgang (his number is 49-
09-324-3333 in case you forgot). Ask him about Tetelo, ask him about the
talisman twice, then about Tetelo’s remains, and then about the possible African
homeland. When you’re finished, leave the studio and go through your daily
routine. Leave the store and go to the cemetery.
Go to the Gedde crypt and use the OPERATE icon on the red button. Once inside,
go into your inventory and bring out the flashlight. Click somewhere and Gabe
will turn it on. Focus the flashlight towards the middle crypt drawer (it has a
ring on it) and open it up. You’ll discover Mosely’s body! Gabriel will become
shocked and drop his flashlight. Before he can pick it up, he’s hit on the head
and knocked out for a few minutes.
When he comes to, he’ll get the flashlight. Open up the middle drawer again and
get Mosely’s wallet. Go into your inventory and open it up and you’ll get
Mosely’s credit card. Use the OPERATE icon on the red button on the right wall
of the room to exit the crypt. Leave the cemetery and go back to the bookstore.
Go into the studio and use the OPERATE icon on the phone. Dial 585-1130 to get
the C the World Travel Agency. When a list of choices comes up, choose the one
that says ‘Rittersberg, Germany’. When the next set of choices comes up, say
‘Charge it to my Americans Repressed’. Leave the shop and go to the New Orleans
International Airport (click on the New Orleans map button and then on the plane
icon). Gabe will automatically get his tickets and fly to Rittersberg.
You’ll soon arrive at Schloss Ritter. Once there, head upstairs and enter the
bedroom. Look at the writing above the locked door inside the room and then head
back downstairs. Walk into the chapel (the doorway opposite the stairs). Look at
the panels on the walls as well as the stained glass panel, and then head back
out into the main area.
Ask Gerde about the portal poem, the chapel panels, and the initiation ceremony.
Head back up to the bedroom, and open up the nearby window. Use the OPERATE icon
on the snow and Gabe will wash his hands in it. Pick up the scissors that sit on
the dresser near the door and use them on Gabe, and he’ll cut his hair. Pick up
the golden bowl that also sits on the dresser and then get the scroll that hangs
on the wall just above the dresser, and then go downstairs.
Get the knife that hangs on the wall just above the lion’s head, and then pick
up the salt shaker that sits on the floor near Gerde. Go into the chapel, and
use the bowl on the altar. Use the salt shaker on the bowl and then use the
knife on Gabe. Use the OPERATE icon on the altar and then use the scroll on
Gabe. Watch the little sequence and the seventh day will end.
When Gabe awakes, pick up the key that is sitting on the table near the bed. Use
that key on the portal door. In the library, look at the lower part of the
center shelves in the back and then read the book you find there. When Gabe’s
finished reading, look at the upper-right corner of the right shelves in the
back and read the book you find there.
Look at the shelves on the left wall and read the book you find there. Do the
same things for the upper-left corner of the left shelves in the back and the
lower right part of the right shelves in the back. Gabe will decide to keep the
snake book, so leave the library and head downstairs. Use the book from the
library on Gerde and she’ll go and get a flight scheduled for Gabe. When a list
of choices comes up, give her the credit card response. The eighth day will end
when Gabe leaves for Africa.
When you arrive at the Wheel-Within-A-Wheel, walk Gabe down to the caves. This
next puzzle is very tough (mainly because people don’t read carefully), so PAY
In order to follow what I’m saying, you should make a mental map as you go
along. Designate the room you are in as Room 6, and notice that it has a bluish
tint on the left side to show where the entrance is. If you go up one screen,
you’ll be in Room 7. If you go south one screen from Room 6, you’ll be in Room
5. These caves loop (the wheel shape should have told you this), so when you go
six screens north from Room 6, you’ll be in the last room, Room 12, before it
loops to Room 1.
Unless you are in it right now, go back to Room 6 so that we can start solving
this puzzle. You can go in either direction, but I chose to start going north.
As you enter each room, you may notice tiles lying on the ground or there are
some in the walls on the right side of your screen. Be sure to pick these up in
EACH room you enter. There are some tiles in a couple of the rooms that are in
the walls, but you can’t take them. Leave these alone, as you won’t need them
anyway. In Room 9, you’ll notice a blue rod on the ground along with some tiles.
Be sure to pick up the rod as you’ll need it later.
After you’ve gone through EACH of the rooms and picked up all of the tiles that
you could, go back to Room 6. Go into your inventory and take a look at the
tiles. You’ll notice that they all have varying numbers of snake patterns on
them. For example, if you see a tile with eight snakes on them, then you would
put that tile in the groove on the wall in Room 8. If you see a tile with ten
snakes on them, then you’d put the tile in the groove on the wall in Room 10.
You can always use the LOOK icon on the tiles while you’re in the inventory to
bring up a close-up view of them. Do you get what I’ve been explaining so far?
Once you’ve placed all of the tiles where they’re supposed to go, you’ll hear
the chime go off saying that you solved that half of the puzzle and you’ll get
the points. Head back to Room 6 (I’m just using this as a point so you don’t get
yourself lost) and then go three screens south to Room 3. Walk Gabe up to the
tile on the wall and then SAVE YOUR GAME!! This next part is VERY tricky and can
result in Gabe’s death if you’re not careful. When you’re ready, put the snake
rod in the knothole that is in the tile and watch as several creatures come to
life (Oooooh, crap). From the room you’re in, as soon as they start coming to
life, start walking one screen north to Room 4. In this room, just hurry up and
go through to the next screen, and you shouldn’t be killed.
In Room 5, the creature is in your way, so what I did was walk out, and then
hurried up and walked back in, and the creature had its back facing me. I walked
around it and hurried through the door. The death sound might go off, but that
doesn’t always mean Gabe will be killed (In my case, that sound went off, but
Gabe managed to get through the door without a scratch).
In Room 6, you’ll see three creatures blocking your only ways of escaping.
However, do you see those thick vines overhead? Use the OPERATE icon on the
thick vine and Gabe will grab it and swing to the next room Indiana Jones style
(Yeehaw!). When you get to Room 7, you’ll see three more creatures blocking your
way, and just as you thought you were screwed, Wolfgang jumps down from up above
and holds the creatures off with a torch.
When you regain control, hurry up and use the snake rod on the knothole that’s
just inside the doorway to the right. You’ll now find yourself within the Inner
Wheel. Walk one screen to the east and look at the iron bars near the table.
Look at the tabletop and then take the bars and Gabriel and Wolfgang will slide
them into the table. Do this a second time to put the other bar into the table.
Use the OPERATE icon on the bars to find out that you can’t lift it without a
heart to place in the trough.
Walk back one screen to the west and use the knife on the dead creature. Doing
this will result in Uncle Wolfgang’s death (oh no!) and Gabriel will curse
Tetelo for what she has done. The ninth day will soon come to a tragic end.
This is the last day of the game, so let’s continue. When you get back to New
Orleans, go to the bookstore to find Grace missing (this keeps getting worse and
worse). Read the newspaper and then get the envelope sitting on the desk to find
a letter from Malia. Mosely will come out from the studio and there will be a
brief conversation between Gabe and Mosely.
When you’re in the studio, give Mosely his wallet and credit card back. You can
fill him in and you can have him fill you in if you want, but otherwise, ask him
about making a plan. Leave the store and go to the cathedral. Enter the far
right confessional, which is located on the left wall. Inside, use the snake rod
on the knothole (it may be a bit hard to see, but it’s near the upper right
corner of the confessional) and when your elevator trip is over, use the snake
rod on the bench and then use the remaining signal device on it as well.
Leave the confessional and you’ll find yourself inside the Voodoo hounfour.
Before you start, take the time to save your game because there are some parts
that can result in Gabe’s death if you’re not careful. Please read the rest of
this walkthrough very carefully.
Use the OPERATE icon on the control pad near the other door and you’ll exit out
into the main hallway. This area has some similarities with the Wheel puzzle,
but this one isn’t quite as difficult. Go up one screen to Room 7. Use the
OPERATE icon on the door’s control pad and go inside. Take the wolf and boar
masks that you see and then if you notice the coat rack in the back to the left,
use the HAND icon on it twice to take a costume for each of the masks.
Leave the room and go down three screens to Room 4. If you’re having a hard time
trying to figure what room is which, just look at the red sign above the door.
Just look at it and count how many things there are, and that’ll be the room
number. Enter Room 4 and take the black notebook off of the desk. Leave Room 4
and go up towards Room 5, but don’t enter it. Instead, there’s a hallway that
runs off to the right. Follow it and you’ll end up in the ceremonial room.
Use the OPERATE icon on the nearest set of drums. Send the message ‘Summon
Brother Eagle’ by clicking on Summon in the first book and clicking on Brother
Eagle in the other one. Click on the EXIT button and Gabe will send the message.
There is a timer now in effect for Dr. John’s arrival, so act quickly. Leave the
room via the northeast hallway. Go to Room 2, enter it, and pick up the card
that is hanging on the opposite wall.
Leave Room 2 and go down to Room 1. Use the keycard on the control pad to unlock
the door. Enter it and use the HAND icon on the money three times. Head to Room
11. Use the keycard on the control pad, enter, and then immediately leave. Go
down to Room 8, unlock it, and enter.
Inside, you’ll discover Grace lying on a bed. Mosely should enter shortly if you
left him the snake rod and signal device back in the confessional. If you
didn’t, Dr. John will show up and you’re screwed. If Mosely entered, continue
on. If not, reload your game.
Use the talisman on Grace and she will recover. Use the boar outfit on Mosely
and then the wolf outfit on Gabriel. Dr. John will come in and you’ll be told to
go to the ceremonial room. Watch the sequence and when you have control, use the
talisman on Tetelo and then toss it to Mosely when you have the chance. He’ll
run off with Grace and now it’s time for the final encounter between
Malia/Tetelo and Gabriel Knight.
When is Tetelo is poised to slice Gabe open, use the HAND icon on the idol
that’s underneath the tabletop and when Malia/Tetelo is hanging from the edge of
a crevasse, you’ll be left with a choice: To betray Malia or to save her. To
betray Malia, you can either just sit back and relax or use the knife on her.
Betraying her will result in Gabe’s death, and the alternate ending will show
Mosely and Grace talking, and you won’t get all of the points.
To save Malia, use the HAND icon on her. She’ll tell you to let her go and
she’ll fall to her death. Watch the ending sequence, and you’ll have beat
Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers. I ended up getting 339 out of 342 points
this time around, so I’ll have to figure out where the missing three points come
Protoss – for sending me the point list for Gabriel Knight 1
For the FAQ sites that know me (and love me) – thanks for adding my guides to
your website. It has allowed people who are tired of using other people’s guides
(that tend to be vague sometimes) to use mine.
Jane Jensen – for coming up with such a great idea for an adventure game that
spawned two great sequels. Her books Millennium Rising (also known as Judgment
Day), Gabriel Knight 1, and Gabriel Knight 2 were also very good.
Sierra Studios – For publishing the Gabriel Knight series. I’m still mad that
you won’t make a Gabriel Knight 4, but I guess I’ll have to wait and see what
the future will bring.
To anyone else I may have forgotten about – I’m sorry that I didn’t mention you,
but you know who you are and you’ll get as much gratitude as everyone else here.
