  The computer platform is known for its older point-and-click adventure
games, and the Journeyman Project series is no different. What makes this
title different from the likes of Myst and Riven is HUMOR. Your A.I. buddy,
Arthur, is always there to make offbeat and hilarious comments for whatever
situation you have gotten yourself into (and there are plenty!). I find this
lack of a serious tone makes The Legacy of Time VERY enjoyable!

  As Gage Blackwood, you warp to different periods of time to complete the
task assigned to you by the Temporal Security Agency. Along the way, you
encounter members of various cultures (Genghis Kahn, for example) that may or
may not be helpful in your journey to save Earth, and your meetings with these
people might actually give you a few brief lessons in history, too!

 =~   3)   STORY                                                          ~=
Legacy of Time's storyline, from the instruction manual...

  It is the year 2329, and you are Gage Blackwood, Agent 5 of the Temporal
Security Agency (TSA). For the past eleven years, it has been your incredible
duty to protect history from any threat that could disastrously change it.
Twice in your decorated career as the TSA's elite agent, you have saved Earth
from criminals utilizing time travel to destroy history as we know it.

  Two months ago, you thwarted a plot to frame you, masterminded by a traitor
once thought above suspicion--Michelle Visard, the rogue Agent 3 of the TSA.
She had captured you and threatened to betray the secrets of time travel to
another alien race known as the Krynn. But your intrepid online companion,
the sentient Artificial Intelligence Arthur, saved you by creating a virus
that infected Agent 3's time-travel JumpSuit and caused a malfunction. Unfor-
tunately, Arthur himself was the virus, and he was trapped within Agent 3's
time-travel JumpSuit when a flood of temporal energy surrounded them both and
sent them spinning into the time stream. No trace of Agent 3 or Arthur has
been found, and both are presumed dead.

  Since then, a grim time has befallen the TSA. With the Agent 3 scandal
undermining the credibility of the TSA, the intergalactic league of worlds
known as the Symbiotry has demanded that Earth surrender control of its time-
travel technology. You watch helplessly as the TSA shuts down around you.

  While the TSA endures its darkest hour, distant events are transpiring on
the far border of known space that dwarf the scope of any danger you have
faced before. A forgotten alien race has amassed a fleet of warships and
returned to claim a relic long lost. As their ships ominously approach Earth,
you are charged with discovering that which they seek. As you accept the
challenge to save Earth from the mysterious invaders, you learn that the
answers to the crisis in the present lie hidden within the past...

 =~   5)   WALKTHROUGH                                                    ~=
This section guides you through The Legacy of Time.

<<<   [5.1]   TROUBLE IN TIME                                              >>>
  A crisis strikes the Temporal Security Agency, and Gage Blackwood decides to
head back into time to locate Agent 3, although there are no JumpSuits avail-
able. William Daughton brings Gage to a room containing the latest device in
time travel, the Chameleon JumpSuit. Capture Daughton's image using your
cursor and then warp to the location listed in the bar at the top of screen.

<<<   [5.2]   THE TIME CODE PIECES                                         >>>
Mediterranean Sea - October 6, 1262 B.C.
  After completing the time-jump, Gage lands in Atlantis...or what's left of
it. Turn around and continue walking forward until Agent 3's suit appears in
your view. Activate it, and the artificial intelligence, Arthur, will move
into your suit. Along with him is a message left behind by Agent 3. She
mentions that there three pieces of a time code that will take you right to
her. The first one is found here, of course.

  Keep heading forward until you reach the end of the area. There Arthur zooms
in a boat carrying someone. It turns out the person on it looks unusually
close to the inventor of time travel, Dr. Elliot Sinclair. After that scene is
done, look around on the ground for a rope ladder. Stick in your inventory,
head back, and enter the windmill.

  Throw the rope on the broken staircase to continue on. Traverse the stairs
and open the trapdoor. Climb up the ladder you see in that room to reach the
apex of the structure. Now you're movin' on up! (well...you would be if this
was The Jeffersons...) The time code piece is engraved in the wood. Scan it
to complete the area.

Andes Mountains - January 29, 524 A.D.
  Have the Andes Mts. be the next destination on your list. The area begins
with Gage being stuck in a well. To get out, move the rock out of the way of
the stone brick. Activate the lever to the left of that to increase the water

  Jump out of the well and collect the winch handle to your left. When you
reach the fork in the road, take the left path. You should see a crop basket
in your view. Walk up to it and borrow it. Return to the fork and travel
through the other path you missed.

  Look up, and you'll see a balloon in the air attached to a device on the
ground. Go up to it, place the winch handle, and turn it to bring down the
balloon. Then put the crop basket there. Enter the balloon to hitch a ride.

  While in the air, you should notice a rope that's a bit thicker than the
rest. Click on it to have Gage throw it to the adjacent balloon. After hopping
into the other vehicle (and listening to Arthur's comment), have a gander
around the basket and scan the code piece. Then unknown vessels and a Cyrollan
ship enter the scene and begin fighting. Don't worry, you'll find out who the
unknowns are later.

Himalayan Mountains - April 15, 1219 A.D.
  The concluding time piece is found here. Turn a bit to your right and run
down the hill of snow. There you'll see a dead body clutching a staff. Take
the staff, turn right, and pick up the control wheel.

  Enter the crippled building and walk up to the gears. Place the control
wheel on the gray one and turn it. Take a step back, go down the snow hill,
move forward, and climb down the remains of what used to be a bridge. Take a
step north, turn right, and move again. Use the wooden staff in your inventory
to open the frozen window. Enter the room. You'll see a Buddha statue in the
corner. Climb over it, and look at the final time code piece. Cyrollan
soldiers appear in the distance, but Gage escapes before things heat up.

<<<   [5.3]   SEARCH FOR THE LEGACY                                        >>>
  This is where the game gets more interesting and complicated. Here, you can
complete any of the three locations in any order. So if you get stuck, move to
another area and see how you fare. For now, we'll just beat it in the order
they are listed.

Mediterranean Sea - October 5, 1262 B.C.
  Looks like a lot different than your last visit, eh? Turn to the right and
take a step forward. Glance down to find the same trapdoor you saw earlier in
the game. Open it and go down. There's two gears lying on the floor. Dash to
the other side of this circular room and stick the gears on the floor. Now you
can turn the lever! Click it a total of five times so you can move to the out-
side of the windmill. Once you're there, turn the device again, and Gage lands
in a new spot. Run the whole way the strip of concrete and jump onto the
ship's mast. Then climb down it.

  Now you're in the docks area. Turn left, take a step, then right, left, and
left again. The beggar should be in your sight. Steal his guise and switch to
it. He's blind, so he won't care. ^_^ 

  Move back a step and board the Egyptian ship. A gaff is sitting amongst the
clay containers on the vessel. Pick it up. Move yourself to the left and move
forward. You should see a silk scarf on the deck. While you won't need this
until *much* later into the game, there's no reason you should leave it there.

  Go the other end of the ship to find the ship's captain in chains. Take his
guise and talk to him. Make sure you get the coins from him. Visit the beggar
and give the moolah to him. The Atlantian mentions "nasty weather," although
the sky tells you otherwise. You'll discover exactly what this means in a
short while.

  The opposite end of the docks has the ferryman. Make sure you converse with
him using the captain guise. Fork over the coins and head to the windmill.
Climb the staircase and enter the building.

  In this small section, there's a chest. Open it to find a scroll containing
the schematics for a hidden passage. It won't make any sense now, but it will
later in Atlantis. Take the windmill keeper's guise and chat with him. He also
mentions this "nasty weather" phrase. Arthur decides to add this to your
dialogue choices. 

  Chat with the Egyptian captain as the beggar. Mention nasty weather to him.
He then says "It may even rain." Now go to the beggar as the captain and say
it may rain. The plot begins to unravel. Learn everything about this escape
plan from this Atlantian. Go talk with the windmill keeper (as the captain
again). This time pick "long winter." Learn as much as you can and then return
to the ferryman. The olive oil vendor is now on the list of destinations. Go

  There are two structures here: the potter's shop and the olive oil vendor's.
Visit the potter. As soon you enter his workshop, turn left and walk to the
foreign machine. Activate it and glance down at the container on the floor.
Collect the raw clay and stick it with your other items. Go the oliver oil
vendor's workshop. When you enter, you'll see various vases on the table. Zoom
in on one of them and place the raw clay on it to replicate the temple's holy
seal. Take the woman's guise, put it on, and talk to the potter. Agree to
"watch" his pots so he can celebrate at the festival. Walk up to the kiln.
Steal the pitcher and bowl off of the table. Before you can complete the fab-
rication of the temple medallion, you need one more thing--a gold leaflet.
You won't find it here, so time-warp to El Dorado...

Andes Mountains - January 28, 524 A.D.
  Don't fret, you won't spend too much time here. =P Since you're here, there
are three guises you can capture. Walk to the right and take the sleeping
boy's image. Go back, turn left, and get the farmer's image. Now head to the
balloon. Maneuver on over to the other side and walk the whole way up the

  In this room is a scribe working on painting a mural. Take his guise, if you
desire. Open the nearby basket, take a gold leaf, and teleport back to

Mediterranean Sea - October 5, 1262 B.C.
  Open the oven door. Place the raw clay (make sure you have the seal!) and
the gold leaf on top of it. Close the door, turn the wheel, and viola! Instant
gold medallion! Now you can enter the temple. Talk to the ferryman and head
there. Give the guard the medallion, and he'll grant you permission. Board the
ferry. Walk forward until you see a container with chicken heads around it.
Fill the bowl and pitcher with holy water. Turn right and walk to the end of
the path. Use the gaff to close the small gate that's allowing water to flow
through. Now travel to the windmill.

  Go inside to the central room of it. Pick up the loose rope on the ground
and attach it to the wooden pole in middle of the area. Now turn the wheel on
the pole to reveal the hidden passage. Since you closed the water flow, you
can go in. So do it!

  Climb up the ladder, step forward, and walk to the left. Here you'll see the
Sinclair-look-alike. He turns out to be Saros, the guardian templar. Talk to
him as Padros (the beggar) to obtain the sun disc. Place this special item on
the nearby clock. Then turn the wheel. But...you need to turn the water back
on. Go back and continue moving forward to a staircase. Climb up to enter the
temple again. Open the water gate, and a raising column of water appears
before your eyes. The legacy moves with it. Collect it and warp outta here.

Andes Mountains - January 28, 524 A.D.
  As it turns out, what Gage brought to the TSA is only a piece of the legacy.
There's two more to locate. So let's find the next one!

  If you warped to Atlantis as soon as you picked up the gold leaf, Gage
should land in the room with the murals the scribe is working on. Turn around
and go down the first small set of stairs. Turn right and continue along the
path until you are stopped by a guard. The aviator warrior will not let you go
in to see the shaman, so something needs to be done... If you go behind the
guard, you should see the rope holding his balloon in place. You need to cut
it somehow, but you don't have the necessary equipment. Let's pay a quick
visit to Shangri-La!

Himalayan Mountains - April 14, 1219 A.D.
  Once you land, face to the right and walk down the snowy road. Take the
pilgrim's guise, equip it, turn around, and cross the nearby wooden bridge.
Take the left path until you come across the greenhouse. Enter the building
and climb up onto the small platform. Collect the knife and tunnel map and
head back to El Dorado.

Andes Mountains - January 28, 524 A.D.
  With the knife in hand, cut the rope! Then you can watch the warrior hang
from the balloon and yell various expletives! Anyway...continue on. When you
reach a wall, put the view on your right side to see yet another guard! Talk
to him, and the shaman appears. As the farmboy, ask him to explain the Story
(and get a bag of popcorn while you're at it). Before this important conver-
sation ends, obtain his guise...you will need it in a moment.

  Head the whole way to the location of the farmboy (the well). Chat with the
kid as the shaman and have him give back the talisman. Now travel back to the
aviator leader. Take the other route to spot a hot air balloon. Use the tal-
isman to create the heat required to fly into the sky. In the air, zoom in on
the temple's roof. Make a note of how the heads are arranged around that
arrow. When you're done, go back down and visit the temple entrance. 

  Walk down the path you have not gone through yet. It'll look like a dead-
end. Move around through the vegetation, and an arrow-shaped pool of water is
there. Place the talisman on the serpent with the cavity, and the liquid
drains out. Take a step down and face the set of heads on your left.

  Zoom in and touch the head with the blue square eyes. Maneuver to the next
head-set. Click the one that looks a bit like a bulldog. Turn around and hit
the parrot-like stone. Now move to the final group and touch the one that
looks really PO'ed (it's on the west end if you can't tell =P). A hidden
passage opens!

  Traverse down the corridor and watch your ass get scorched. So we need to
fix this minor obstacle. Remove the talisman from the indentation, so the
water flows and cancels out the flames. Go down the hall a second time to get
the second legacy part.

Himalayan Mountains - April 14, 1219 A.D.
  The final part of this legacy is located here. Remember the guard house that
was beside you when you first entered this place? Enter that structure, go up
the left staircase, and talk to the Dob Dob guard. Pass him the silk scarf
from Atlantis so he'll grant you permission to use the bridge. Head straight
forward and enter the monastery.

  The Lama (no, not Llama...) is here at his desk. Talk to him as the pilgrim
and try to learn about the Buddhist religion. Leave the building and run to
the west. You should a tent that stands a bit out of place. The gruesome
Genghis Khan is inside. Take his guise and don't bother attempting to start a
converstation with him. Talk to the Lama as Khan to learn even more of the
religion. He mentions two critical pieces of information: transmutation and
visiting the six shrines. Each of the colored Buddha statues scattered around
the land is a shrine that represents one of the realms. You need to give each
statue an offering to progress. Take some time to read the inscription under
the blue Buddha statue here.

  Enter the building past Khan's tent and make your way through the hallway.
Turn to the right and analyze the picture on the wall. This circle has each of
the statues showing the offering they desire. Remember that info and exit this

  Go across the other bridge by the pilgrim. Read the writing under the green
Buddha statue and the symbols near it. Visit the green house again. There's a
golden grate on the floor by the tree. Climb down, pour the healing water onto
the dying roots, and go back up. Collect the spiritual fruit from the tree and
place it on the statue's bowl. A yellow stone appears. Get it! Enter the cave
system the same way you did a couple minutes ago.

  Check the map. On the far right, there's an exit that appears under Khan's
tent. That is where you need to go. Along the way, pick up the butter boiler
in the hells realm (on the map, it's the room with the skeleton and flames).
Once you reach the tent steal Genghis's sword. Be quick, though! If you take
too long, he'll bash your head in. Get outside of the caves and approach the
statue by the tent. Give this one the sword you just acquired. The red stone
is now yours.

  Enter the hallway of the temple you went to earlier. On the left wall, there
are eight wheels that play a unique note. You have to play them in the order
of the holy mantra. Take out the butter boiler and grease the upper-right
wheel so it actually works. Use this order (ignore the wheels with the X's):
                            ___   ___   ___   ___
                           |   | |   | |   | |   |
                           | 3 | | 2 | | 6 | | 4 |
                           |___| |___| |___| |___|
                            ___   ___   ___   ___
                           |   | |   | |   | |   |
                           | 5 | | X | | 1 | | X |
                           |___| |___| |___| |___|

  The white Buddha behind you grants ya the white stone. Now talk to the Lama
as Khan and ask about the animal realm. If you have read the text near the
green statue, answer the question with "ignorance." He then hands over the
Book of Knowledge. Place this item into the hole under that statue to get the
green stone.

  To get the rock from the blue Buddha statue, you need to warp to Atlantis
again. Go to where the beggar usually is and get the alms bowl he left behind.
Put this bowl in the hand of the statue. One more to go!

  This item is tricky to obtain. Remember the hells realm statue in the tunnel
system? To get the stone from it, you must direct the heat from two steam
rooms to the statue. You do this by changing the positions of the doors in the
caves. Look at my tunnel map at www.gamefaqs.com for a solution to this
puzzle. Once you've completed that, pick up the black stone the statue leaves
for ya.

  Now head back to the temple with the circle of life. Dash down the staircase
and face the central pillar. Walk around to the other side of it to see a
figurine of the white Buddha. Give it the white stone to cause a small portion
of a staircase to rise. Read the inscription on the front of this. Walk up,
turn to the right, and give the red Buddha the red stone. Again, read the text
to learn more about this "Siddha." Keep repeating this process. At the top, a
flower-like object spins and opens up. Jump from platform to platform to
progress. Learn a bit about the murals and take the Lotus in the hub of the
room. Make sure you look at the red orb above the face painting here. It shows
the pilgrim you first saw at Shangri-La (hint, hint).

  Leave and talk to the pilgrim. Attempt to give him the Lotus. He says that
he cannot change the artifact until you have completed the True Path by
removing all of your illusions. Remove the currently equipped guise and do
this again. The Lotus transmutates into the final portion of the legacy. Gage

  The game isn't over yet! Now that the three artifacts are brought together,
you must make them form the Sosiqui marking that the Cyrollan ambassador
showed you earlier in the game. This is accomplished by rotating the three
pieces in different directions.

  For the lower-left artifact, turn the lower-right corner (from your
perspective) once. On the lower-right artifact, rotate the northern corner two
times. For the final piece, turn the very top of it once. Rotate the lower-
right one time and the top once again. This should create an image of the
Sosiqui symbol.

             Now you have finally completed The Legacy of Time!
