    "It is not a question about what the Law is, but rather what it is not. The Law
    is neither noble, nor an end in itself. It is not for the weak-minded or the
    squeamish. The Law is simply a means for those who control it, namely me, to
    acquire that which I want. One with your wealth and connections, who is
    prepared to sacrifice to have a troubling problem resolved, need only describe
    to me in detail the favor you are requesting."
         -- Gorman Truart, correspondence
    
    "The Master Builder came unto us. He built for us a new house, and the house
    was like His house. And he gifted us with knowledge, and we learned to use
    Boiler and Gear. That unto us would come His Paradise, and there would be no
    pain."
         -- from Mechanist Rote Texts for Novices
    
    "Twice moons face darks us showed
     Twice thems jackals singsie
     Thrice Him harvest failsy blights
     Thrice we weeps and chillsing..."
         -- Unattributed, Ink on Parchment
    
    "Our focus shifted to those who presented two faces: one manifest yet false,
    the other hidden yet true. To interfere directly would bring ruin, still, the
    glyph warnings were absolute."
         -- Keepers Annals

    that none could escape his judgement."

    Section 1: The Latest From Taffer
    =================================
    Two of the prisoners' lines in Mission 3 have been corrected.
    
    The three prisoners in Mission 3 that have lines...I've done my best to
    translate them, but one I still can't quite understand. I've done my best, but
    if anyone knows for sure what it is that is said, please let me know so I can
    fix the entry here.
    
    
    You're probably wondering just what the heck this is. Well, it's a sort of
    "Companion Guide" to Thief II. Basically what I've done (and will try to
    continue to do) is to document here the text of every document, scroll,
    parchment, plaque, letter, report, announcement and palimpsest that I have been
    able to find in the game. (I'm also attempting to include conversations of
    note, but I'm undecided if this will continue or not, as it takes nearly a half
    hour or more do to each long conversation.)
    
    The idea for this came at a point while I was doing the Thief Gold FAQ, but not
    until late in the game (sometime after I had finished "The Lost City"), and
    despite my desire to do it there as well, I did not relish the prospect of
    going through all those missions again to find everything a third (sometimes
    fourth or even fifth!) time, particularly the undead missions.
    
    I may still go back and do it, although it would be a very slow process, since
    it would be done while I was also doing the Thief II FAQ. If there is anyone
    else who wishes to undertake this monumental task, they are more than welcome
    to do so in my stead.
    
    Since I am doing this Companion Guide as I do the FAQ for Thief II, I will
    attempt to make the version number for each document identical. I will keep
    updating the Thief II FAQ version number as I normally do, and simply copy that
    version number here.
    
    Please note that this is a COMPANION GUIDE only. It is not required to either
    play the game, nor to use the FAQ I am writing. It's simply just a "bonus
    supplement".
    
    As always, despite my attempts to be as thorough as possible, something is
    bound to get by me every now and then. If there's anything missing from this
    guide that you know of, please let me know about it, and I'll do my best to see
    it gets included.
    
    Please write in and let me know how you like this Companion Guide. If I get
    enough of a favourable response, I just may continue doing it! :)
    
    
    Section 2: Opening Notes Regarding This Guide
    =============================================
    This guide does not cover the entire game at the moment. It only covers up to
    mission five, "Eavesdropping". Other missions will be added every now and then,
    at irregular intervals.
    
    This Companion Guide is based on the PC version of the game. Does another
    version exist? I don't know.
    
    2.1: Reading This Guide
    =======================
    I have had a few people email me saying that they had trouble reading the Thief
    Gold FAQ through certain programs (such as Internet Explorer). They say they
    can't read it through their standard viewing programs, as the lines run off the
    screen. This has so far only come from people who are on my mailing list.
    
    When I type up the guide, I use the WordPad program which came with Windows 98.
    I have the View/Options set to "Wrap to ruler". Then I type merrily away,
    without having to worry about hitting the "Enter" key. Unfortunately, when the
    document is later viewed in certain other programs, it prints the entire line
    of text until the end, sometimes continuing off the screen (as described
    above).
    
    If you are having this problem viewing the guide, then I suggest you do one of
    two things:
    
    1) Use WordPad to view it, with the View/Options set to "Wrap to
       ruler",
    2) Go to www.gamefaqs.com and download the guide from there.
    
    Apparently (and I don't know how), when the webmaster puts the guide up on his
    site, this problem of lines not wrapping disappears.
    
    I'm afraid that's all I can suggest at this time.
    
    2.1.1: What This Guide Contains:
    ================================
    This guide contains:
    
    1) Conversations between people that are (basically) one-time "trigger events"
    (example: the two guards in mission one (Running Interference) when Garrett
    extinguishes a nearby torch),
    2) Anything "written" found in the game, that you need to "use" in order to
    read,
    3) Anything Garrett says.
    
    2.1.2: What This Guide Doesn't Contain:
    =======================================
    This guide does NOT contain anything said by someone that is a common
    occurence, such as things the guards say when they are chasing you, or looking
    for you, or just standing around bored. It also does not contain anything
    written that you can read without using, such as (for example) writing on the
    side of a crate, or the words on a wanted poster. (I don't know if such things
    exist in the game...I'm just giving examples of what won't be included.)
    
    NOTE: If something is relevent to the mission, and not just put in for
    atmosphere, then I will probably include it, even if it is something that I
    normally wouldn't.
    
    2.2: Contacting the Author
    ==========================
    You can contact me either through email, or through ICQ.
    
    2.2.1 Contact Through Email
    ===========================
    My email address is: taffer-six@home.com
    
    Please note that this is a new email address. I got a cable modem on July 3rd,
    and as a result had to change my email address. The old one was kept active up
    until July 9th. My apologies to anyone who tried to email me at the old address
    after that time.
    
    I do read all your emails, and I try to reply to every one of them. Sometimes I
    am unable to reply, simply due to the great number I receive, time constraints,
    and any number of other reasons. However, any questions sent to me that are
    already answered in this guide will be ignored.
    
    NOTE: DO NOT SEND ANY QUESTIONS REGARDING MISSIONS NOT COVERED IN THIS GUIDE!!!
    There is a very simply reason why I ignore these emails. I don't read them.
    These missions are not included in the guide yet because I have not PLAYED them
    yet. And a lot of the emails I used to get like this would say things like "How
    do I do X on Mission Y? I've done A, B, C and D, and found that J and K are
    hidden here, but X is still eluding me!" Congratulations, you've just ruined
    some surprises for me on that mission. Because of this, I now delete a message
    as soon as I see it is heading in that direction.
    
    I hate having something ruined for me...I like playing the game and finding
    things out for myself. So do not waste your time or mine by sending in
    questions for missions not yet covered...they will not even be read.
    
    2.2.2 Contact Through ICQ
    =========================
    If you want to contact me through ICQ (all single ladies welcome! <g>), my ICQ
    number is: 82595656. My handle is "Taffer". Please note that this is a new ICQ
    number. Please do not try to contact me at the old one, as I no longer access
    it.
    
    Note that the same rules for email apply to ICQ as well. Also, if you have a
    lengthy amount of information to send me, I would appreciate it if you would do
    so using email.
    
    Please Note: I do not use the "Chat" mode on ICQ. I only use the messaging
    feature. My ICQ settings are currently set up to automatically decline any chat
    requests.
    
    2.2.2.1: Unauthorized Adding on ICQ
    ===================================
    This refers to people who add me to their contact list using some sort of a
    hack or crack program, without receiving my authorization first.
    
    WARNING! Do not, I repeat, DO NOT add me to your contact list WITHOUT receiving
    my authorization first! Several people appear to think it's a real laugh to do
    this. Well, the first time someone did that to me, they erased my hard drive.
    So consider this your first and only warning: Do NOT add me in this
    manner...request authorization like everyone else. ANYONE who adds me without
    requesting my authorization will IMMEDIATELY get placed on my ignore list. I
    will not even bother reading any messages that person may have sent. (This may
    seem harsh...but if you had had YOUR hard drive erased, I'm sure you would
    understand completely.)
    
    2.2.3: Thief II FAQ Mailing Lists
    =================================
    There are TWO mailing lists for those who wish to be notified of updates: a
    "Zipped" list, and a "Notify" list.
    
    Anyone who wishes to be put on a mailing list will have to tell me which one
    they wish to be on. One list of people will receive a zipped email attachment
    of the FAQ (the "Zipped" list). The other list of people (the "Notify" list)
    will only be receiving an email stating that the FAQ has been sent up to
    www.gamefaqs.com (and ONLY to www.gamefaqs.com ...anyone else posting the FAQ
    does not necessarily have the most up to date version, but I always send the
    latest release to the address given above!). Anyone requesting to be put on a
    mailing list without stating which one will default to the "Notify" list.
    
    Please note that this does not mean that the FAQ has been POSTED there
    yet...only that I have sent it up to BE posted. There may sometimes be a delay
    in the posting.
    
    Emails will be sent out AS THE FAQ IS UPDATED AND RELEASED.
    
    Anyone who is on a mailing list that would like to be switched over to the
    other list will have to send me an email stating so. Likewise, if you want to
    be removed from either mailing list, you'll need to send me an email stating
    so.
    
    Anyone who is on the "Zipped" list automatically receives, at no extra cost,
    the updated Thief II Companion Guide.
    
    Anyone who was put on one of my mailing lists for my Thief Gold FAQ has
    automatically been put on a similar mailing list (either "Zipped" or "Notify")
    for this FAQ, unless they requested otherwise.
    
    I have no intention, now or ever, of distributing these email addresses to
    anyone, nor will they be used by me for advertising or "spamming". It is simply
    to get the FAQ out to those who are waiting for it.
    
    2.2.3.1: Bounced Emails
    =======================
    Once when I sent out a FAQ to those on the mailing list, one of the emails
    bounced back. Apparently, someone changed their email address and didn't inform
    me. This is not good. Fortunately, it was only one person.
    
    What's my point? Oh yes...from this point on, anyone who's email account
    bounces back to me will be removed from the mailing list. Seems fair, since
    they aren't getting the attachment anyways.
    
    
    Section 3: Running Interference (Mission 1)
    ===========================================
    "Reliance upon others is weakness for the strong, but strength for the weak.
    Wisdom and balance lie in knowing your own nature over time."
         -- Chronicle of the Metal Age
    
    
    I've always equated "feelings" with "getting caught"...they both get in the way
    of my money. Unfortunately not everyone is as committed to their work as I am.
    An old associate of mine...Basso, the Boxman...wants to marry Lady Rumford's
    chambermaid, Jenivere...and live happily ever after. Guess prison life spoiled
    his taste for thievery.
    
    Too bad for Basso that Lady Rumford has other plans...marriage would void
    Jenivere's indentured service contract, so Rumford is keeping her confined in
    the estate with the rest of her "worldly possessions".
    
    Basso has asked for my assistance on getting her out...since infiltration is my
    specialty. I make it a policy never to take a job so sentimental, but the
    Rumford manor could be a lucrative opportunity for a man like me. It would also
    mean that Basso would owe me a favour...And in this line of work, you can never
    have too many of those.
    
    I'll sneak in after dark, and clear a path for Basso, so he can rescue his
    "damsel in distress". Along the way I'll pick up a few "souveniers" for the
    local pawn shops. That should make all this aggravation worthwhile. Otherwise,
    I'll make Basso wish he was still rotting in Cragscleft. Huh! This proves
    it...going legit is more trouble than it's worth....
    
    
    3.1: Garrett's Words
    ====================
    Upon entering the butler's quarters:
    
    "Good thing the butler's out for the night...he left his lights on."
    
    ******************************
    
    Upon discovering Jenivere's cell door:
    
    "Well, that's her door. Guess Basso can open it...he's not much of a sneak, but
    he can sure handle a lock!"
    
    
    3.2: Spoken Lines
    =================
    Basso, start of the mission:
    
    "I sprung the lock on the side door for you, Garrett. It's the only good way
    in."
    
    ******************************
    
    Two guards, when Garrett douses a nearby torch:
    
    Female: "<Tsk!> Damn torches! Always sputtering out!"
    Male: "Well don't just make taff over it! Light it up!"
    Female: "I lost my tinderbox. Wh-why don't you do it?"
    Male: "I ain't the one that's complaining, am I now?"
    Female: "Huh!"
    
    ******************************
    
    Basso and Jenivere, upon her rescue:
    
    Jenivere: "Basso!"
    Basso: "Shhhh! Come with me!"
    
    ******************************
    
    Basso, upon exiting the manor with Jenivere:
    
    "Shhh! Come with me!"
    
    
    3.3: Written Material
    =====================
    Basement, servants quarters, scroll on bed:
    
    "Dunya -
    Sometimes I think I miss the days when "crime ruled the streets", as the
    Sheriff would have it. Either way, we walk in fear -- but before, we lost at
    most a purse, while now we may be shut up in irons simply for seeing the wrong
    thing at the wrong time. Give me the old days back again, and a pox upon Truart
    and all his thugs!"
    
    
    Section 4: Shipping ... and Receiving (Mission 2)
    =================================================
    "Blessed be the forge, which gives shape unto metal, and steam unto the boiler.
    Blessed be the fire of the Builder and the Forge of Karras."
         -- Mechanist Common Prayer
    
    
    Business has been kind of slow these days, thanks to Sheriff Gorman Truart.
    He's been coming down hard on my competition (and anyone else he deems
    "unlawful"). I've been playing it safe by keeping a low profile, but as my
    landlord recently reminded me the rent is late. He says he's gonna pay me a
    visit tomorrow to collect...so I'll have to go amateur for some quick cash.
    
    The warehouses by the docks should fit the bill. In addition to the usual
    shipping traffic there's also a small smuggling operation, sponsored by the
    local underground. Not too many guards, lots of dark corners, and several
    points of entry should make this job painless, and profitable.
    
    Maybe I'll even have something left over for myself, once the rent is paid.
    Huh! Wasn't that long ago that I was planning on my retirement...now the only
    thing that's getting retired is my standards. If things get any worse I'll have
    to go back to picking pockets in the streets....
    
    
    4.1: Garrett's Words
    ====================
    Upon entering Bay 0457:
    
    "This place looks like an inventor's shop...there's probably a valuable gadget
    or two around here."
    
    ******************************
    
    Upon falling into the elevator well inside Lord Porter's Bay:
    
    "If I aim right I could hit that button with an arrow and activate it."
    
    ******************************
    
    Upon entering Bay 0928, or reading the plaque besides its door:
    
    "Jerm is the man that makes those magic lenses. There's probably some valuable
    lenses in here."
    
    ******************************
    
    Upon approaching the ship:
    
    "That looks like Captain Davidson's cargo ship. He's a shady guy...into
    smuggling and piracy."
    
    ******************************
    
    Upon entering Bay 5188, or reading the plaque beside its door:
    
    "I hear this guy's quite a popular musician...his unpublished work should be
    valuable."
    
    ******************************
    
    Upon reading Sven Mynell's plaque:
    
    "Mynell makes the best steaks in the entire city...his recipes may catch me a
    pretty penny."
    
    ******************************
    
    Upon releasing the large Spider from the cage in Mynell's:
    
    "Eeewwww! So THAT'S Mynell's secret ingredient!"
    
    
    4.2: Spoken Lines
    =================
    Hammerite and dealer, outside Bay 0590:
    
    Dealer: "You must be Yurielle. Well, you're late! I thought I made it
            clear to you Hammers that I don't like to be kept waiting!"
    Hammer: "Be thankful I treat with thee at all, unbeliever! 'Tis late,
            and I seek to finish here quickly, that I may return to my
            brethren!"
    Dealer: "Well, my cranky friend, head this way and I'll show you to
            your shipment. You know, you Hammers used to bring a lot of
            money my way, but I haven't seen you around lately."
    Hammer: "I require but a fourth part of my usual order...'tis all we
            are needful of. For our numbers have fallen since the rise of
            the accursed heretics!"
    Dealer: "Heretics? You mean the Mechanists, right?"
    Hammer: "Speak not that accursed name to me! They follow not the way of
            the Master Builder, but a false prophet, who twists holy
            scripture to his own selfish desire! Nay, worse still, those
            infidels would raise his lies to the level of holy word!"
    Dealer: "I've been hearing a lot about them lately. Don't know what to
            think of them yet, but seems like they've got plans to improve
            the city...making life better for people like ME. Which is more
            than you Hammers ever did!"
    Hammer: "The heretics are not but a trial for the faithful of the
            Builder. They know nothing of devotion...of faith...of
            crafstmanship, or skill...and blindly follow the path of lies,
            greed, and deception! Markest thou my warning: At the forge of
            the Master Builder, He will separate steel from dross, and
            those who follow falsehoods instead of faith will be forever
            cast aside!"
    Dealer: "Yeah, yeah...whatever you say...let's just go and finish up
            our business."
    
    ******************************
    
    Guard and Dealer, outside Bay 0928:
    
    Guard: "Evening Dante. You look exhausted! You should get some sleep!"
    Dante: "I remember what it was like to sleep. Boss left this morning
           and put ME in charge of unloading and catalogueing ALL the
           incoming shipments for the Mechanists. Every single bloody thing
           they order is made out of metal. I've been lifting heavy crates
           all day long, and I think my back is about to break!"
    Guard: "Buncha taffers in this city! *I* live near Dayport, and I useta
           have a nice view of the mountains. I useta watch the sun rise
           with my wife EVERY morning! But now...that metal monstrosity
           casts a permanent shadow over my house!"
    Dante: "Oh, the Mechanist's Tower, you mean? The city has CERTAINLY
           changed over the last year. A lot of that's cause of the
           Mechanists. I was in Dayport just last week...ALL the trees are
           gone, and there are giant chimneys spewing up foul soot!"
    Guard: "My whole neighbourhood stinks of that blackened air! My house
           USED to be white but now it's gone gray with that smudge! And
           my son coughs constantly!"
    Dante: "Well...there's more to the Mechanists than just factories.
           While I was in Dayport I had to stop by the Mechanist's Tower to
           pick up a payment. I couldn't believe what I saw! They had these
           mechanical faces that watched me! It sent shivers down my spine,
           I tell you!"
    Guard: "Yeah...I know all about those metal watchers! They installed
           some here, in the Building B the other day. I hear they plan on
           replacing us guards with them cuz they don't need to give them
           pay at the end of the week! I heard rumours that we're all gonna
           be fired! If that's true...then I'll have to live in the woods,

            fruits and vegetables...but all my crops died months ago, and
            won't grow back no matter WHAT I try."
    Female: "It's as if...all the plant life in this city just up and died!
            Have you noticed that all the trees in Eastport are wilted and
            dead?"
      Male: "Maybe Davidson will smuggle in trees next. Heh. I don't know

            He's quickly becoming a rich man."

    Having to replace last month's shipment that was lost at sea is putting the
    company in serious financial trouble. Gilver took out a loan from the First
    City Bank and Trust to cover the extra expenses. If we don't increase profits
    next month then we won't have enough money to stay in business. Fortunately, we
    just received an unexpected order this morning, and this will bring in some

    month's overseas export to Governor Horridge was supposed to make us rich, but
    the ship never made it to its destination. I suspect piracy. I had to take out
    a loan just to cover last month's losses. I was hoping to have this reshipment
    to the Governor out the door two days ago, but my workers seem to have a hard
    time toting that barge and lifting that bale when I really need them. I would
    fire them all in a second, but I wouldn't be able to find anyone to work for
    what little I can afford to pay. I just finalized the Governor's shipment, and
    I had my secretary run over to Bramrich's office to grab the shipping label so

    now occupied storage bays. Mechanists are now using my work force to move their

    losses, but still, they worry me. They threatened me harm when I refused to

    inventors could set up a machine shop. The new machine shop happens to be right

    =============================
    "Strike hot iron and call forth sparks
    Strike a man and call forth fury
    To shape man or metal to thy will thou must strike with force"
         -- Collected Sermons of Karras
    
    
    Last night an unusual opportunity knocked on my door. Naturally I was a little
    suspicious but my visitor said the job was too sensitive to go through the
    usual channels. He claimed that an old contact of mine told him where to find
    me. I was about to ask him WHO our mutual friend was when he managed...to
    distract me.
    
    The job is to break into Shoalsgate Station -- headquarters of the City Watch
    -- and quietly frame a certain Lieutenant Hagen for robbing the evidence vault.
    Hagen is Sheriff Truart's number two man...and has no doubt made life difficult
    for someone he shouldn't have.
    
    My unusually resourceful employer has given me all the information I need to
    pull this off, including a very detailed map of the building. All I have to do
    is choose a way in, plan my route, and get back out...without alerting the
    bulls.
    
    I realize that breaking into Shoalsgate is like looking down a Burrick's mouth
    with a lit match...but it would pay me enough to lay low for a while. And it
    doesn't hurt to be giving the police some dirty laundry to deal with either.
    Besides, with my luck if I don't take this job I could end UP in there
    anyway....

    They have ongoing investigations on the remaining Wardens and have made steady
    progress. They simply don't have enough of a case yet to move against them. As
    for the missing evidence, my search has determined that they were simply
    clerical errors.
    However, I have discovered that several thefts from the vault have recently
    occurred. These thefts are in no way linked to the Warden Affairs Division. I
    want you to find out who is responsible.
    Start making inquiries into the other divisions but stay away from Warden
    Affairs. Also discuss this with no one, especially Lt. Mosley. Mosley's
    inability to handle the Pagans has caused me to question her resolve. I have
    considered handing over the assignment to you, but given Lt. Mosley's excellent

    burning lamp in front of him, turning towards the voices.]
    
    Keeper #2: Is there no more trust between us then?
    
    [Garrett shakes his head, and sighs. He stands up, and moves away from the
    lamp.]
    
    Garrett: Let's make this fast.
    
    [The scene changes. The image shows books on a bookshelf, then changes to show
    several shadows moving across a long bridge at night. The image changes again,
    to show an old woman in the background. She speaks in a foreign tongue. Then a
    small girl speaks on top of her, translating her words. She is drawn into focus
    when she starts to speak.]
    
    Translator: My hand is copper, my brow is lead. Suffer me in a red patina,
    swept along in a molten flow to a sad eternity.
    
    [The image changes to show Garrett and some Keepers, looking up at the child
    and the old woman. They continue, as the camera draws closer to the men's
    silhouettes..]
    
    Translator: My stride interrupted, my thoughts untimed. My tears are become
    drops of silver....
    
    [The image changes, showing the old woman's hand on a page of an old book, two
    fingers extended, flowing over the script. She is obviously reading the words
    she speaks. The letters seem to glow as her fingers cross over them.]
    
    Translator: ...That shatter the crystalline fern. I plead the wind to sweep us
    away.
    
    [The image changes to show Garrett and the Keepers in silhouette, all looking
    up at the two women. As the men speak, the translation continues in the
    background.]
    
    Translator: My alabastrine limbs, useless and tired. My carnelian heart,
    beatless and mired....
    
    Garrett: Nice poem.
    
    [One Keeper's silhouette turns towards Garret.]
    
    Keeper #1: Not poetry. Prophecy.
    
    [The image changes to show only Garrett and the Keeper speaking.]
    
    Keeper #1: The metal age is upon us.
    
    [The image changes to show all the men in silhouette again. Three are looking
    up at the women. The one who was speaking to Garrett turns to look up also, and
    the translation continues.]
    
    Translator: I pick the gilded apple from the iron tree.
    
    [The image changes to show the old woman's face in profile. She continues
    reading.]
    
    Translator: I wipe the rust from my brow.
    
    [The image changes to show the men in silhouette again. As they speak, the
    translation continues in the background.]
    
    Translator: The earth rejects me, foul and changed. The wind refuses me,
    unsightly and maimed. My voice is corrupted, my tongue unwind, my pulse is
    mercurial sicked, it slows.
    
    Garrett: [disbelieving] Iron trees? Not in my part of town!
    
    [The Keeper turns to speak to Garrett again. As he speaks, the image changes to
    show only himself and Garrett's silhouettes.]
    
    Keeper #1: Find the humour if you must, but can you tell me truly Garrett...are
    there any trees in your part of town? *I* will answer for you: There are NOT!
    
    [The image changes to show all the men in silhouette again, the one Keeper
    still looking at Garrett.]
    
    Translator: Destiny and danger are still focused on the one....
    
    [The image changes to show something like an iron gate, with a spider sitting
    in its web it has built among the pattern of the iron.]
    
    Translator: ...The renegade who is both brethren and betrayer.
    
    [As the translator speaks, a shadow moves across the spiderweb. The image
    changes to show a closeup of the spider, as the shadow jostles it. Several legs
    fall off of the spider, and a gaseous substance escapes from its body. The rest
    of the spider falls to pieces, and fall to the ground.]
    
    [The image changes to show the men in silhouette again. As they speak, the
    translation continues in the background.]
    
    Translator: Beware the spider, for he weaves both labyrinth and lair....
    
    Garrett: Well, you got the danger part right anyway. Tell you what. You Keepers
    can plant a few shrubs about town, and...I'll take care of ME.
    
    [As he speaks, the image changes to show the four silhouette's looking up at
    the women.]
    
    [The image changes to show only Garrett's and the one Keeper's silhouette.]
    
    Garrett: I'll find my own way home.
    
    [Garrett turns to leave, the one Keeper turning to watch him go. The image
    changes to show Garrett walking away on the bridge, the Keeper watching. In the
    background can be seen many books on shelves...we are looking at a bridge built
    near the top of a huge library.]
    
    Keeper #1: You're a fool! Do you not understand what is at stake?
    
    [The image changes to show the three Keepers watching Garrett leave. As they
    speak, their body language changes to indicate who is talking, and to whom.]
    
    Keeper #3: Did you not hear the interpreter's words?
    
    Keeper #2: Yes, Keeper Orland, he HAS heard. Do not despair. Let me go after
    him. Alone. Not to persuade, but to leave the door open between us.
    
    [One Keeper detaches himself from the group to follow after Garrett. The image
    changes to show Garrett at a distance, walking through an archway. The Keeper
    walks into the scene, and stops. Garrett stops as the Keeper speaks.]
    
    Keeper #2: One more moment if you will, Garrett.
    
    [Garrett turns to face the Keeper. As he does so, the Keeper starts forward.]
    
    Garrett: [exasperated] ONE moment.
    
    [The image changes to show Garrett's silhouette up close. An insect flies
    around in the light of a nearby burning lamp.]
    
    Keeper #2: You have trouble, my friend.
    
    [The image changes to show the Keeper's silhouette approaching. As he enters
    the light, his face is revealed. The insect continues to fly around in the
    light.]
    
    Keeper #2: Danger from someone who hired Truart to kill you.
    
    Garrett: [impatient] Yes?
    
    [The Keeper raises his hand to give what appears to be a letter to Garrett. The
    scene changes to show Garrett's silhouette, the Keeper's hand now shown in
    silhouette.]
    
    Keeper #2: Then take this.
    
    [Garrett reaches forward. The image changes to focus on their hands in the
    light. Garrett's is gloved, the Keeper's is bare. Garrett takes the letter as
    the Keeper speaks.]
    
    Keeper #2: The sooner you are done with YOUR business....
    
    [The image changes to show Garrett's silhouette, up close at first, walking
    away.]
    
    Keeper #2: ...The sooner you will help US.
    
    Garrett: Don't count on it.
    
    [As he walks away, the old woman's voice is heard again. The translation
    continues.]
    
    Translator: My heart it ceases....
    
    [The image changes to show the scene where the men had looked up at the women.
    The men are no longer there.]
    
    Translator: ...My breath undrawn....
    
    [The image changes to show a close up of the old woman's eyes.]
    
    Translator: ...My eyes forever focused....
    
    [The image fades to darkness.]
    
    Translator: ...On the sanguine metal...dawn....
    
    7.1: The Prophecy
    =================
    For those of you who may be interested, here is the entire prophecy,
    uncluttered by the additional material above. Thanks to Sergey for sending me
    the incomplete areas!
    
    "My hand is copper, my brow is lead.
     Suffer me in a red patina, swept along in a molten flow to a sad eternity.
    
     My stride interrupted, my thoughts untimed.
     My tears are become drops of silver that shatter the crystalline fern.
     I plead the wind to sweep us away.
    
     My alabastrine limbs, useless and tired,
     My carnelian heart, beatless and mired.
    
     I pick the gilded apple from the iron tree,
     I wipe the rust from my brow.
    
     The earth rejects me, foul and changed,
     The wind refuses me, unsightly and maimed.
     My voice is corrupted, my tongue unwind,
     My pulse is mercurial sickened, it slows.
    
     Destiny and danger are still focused on the one,
     The renegade who is both brethren and betrayer.
     Beware the spider, for he weaves both labyrinth and lair.
    
     My heart it ceases, my breath undrawn,
     My eyes forever focused on the sanguine metal dawn."
    
    
    Section 8: Eavesdropping (Mission 5)
    ====================================
    "The man who learns only what others know is as ignorant as if he learns
    nothing. The treasures of knowledge are the most rare, and guarded most
    harshly."
         -- Chronicle of the First Age
    
    
    I headed back to my safehouse, and kept thinking about the letter. I know
    they're trying to manipulate me, but Keepers never alter the truth...just keep
    it in the shadows. Besides, it's not like I got a lot of leads anyway.
    
    Keepers Voice: If you seek the private knowledge of the Sheriff, go to the
    Easport Mechanists Seminary tomorrow night. With stealthy discretion, overhear
    what you may, at a certain very timely meeting.
    
    Looks like I have something useful to learn from a seminary for a change. There
    are two open towers, and some back doors which might be helpful for getting in.
    The catacombs below the church could be another way in, but I'd rather not
    tread where the dead sleep.
    
    The meeting will most likely take place in some sort of...conference hall. Heh.
    There's no guarantee that I'll even be able to get inside, but all I need to do
    is get close enough to listen at the door.
    
    I better pull this off quickly and find a new hideout before the bulldogs get
    my scent. This situation does have one advantage: things can't get any worse.
    Who could hire someone like the Sheriff to kill me...?
    
    
    8.1: Garrett's Words
    ====================
    Upon entering the laboratory:
    
    "Strange. I wonder what kind of work the Mechanists do here."
    
    ******************************
    
    Upon entering the secret trapdoor:
    
    "I could REALLY learn to hate these guys."
    
    ******************************
    
    Upon approaching the door to the meeting room:
    
    "Better not disturb them. I can hear the meeting just fine from
    out here."
    
    ******************************
    
    Upon hearing about the location of the safety deposit box key:
    
    "I'd like to get a copy of that key myself."
    
    ******************************
    
    Upon picking up a key OTHER than the safety deposit key, after hearing
    about it, but before retrieving the safety deposit key:
    
    "Huh...wrong key."
    "Nope."
    "That wasn't the right key."
    
    ******************************
    
    Upon reading the book on the pulpit in the church:
    
    "These Mechanists are just as bad as the Hammers."
    
    ******************************
    
    Upon entering the factory area:
    
    "It's no big secret that the Mechanist's are the ones supplying Sheriff
    Truart with those machines."
    
    ******************************
    
    Upon picking up the safety deposit key, after hearing about it:
    
    "I better come back here and replace this key when I'm done with it."
    
    
    8.2: Spoken Lines
    =================
    Meeting between Truart and Karras:
    
    [Clock starts to strike.]
    
    Garrett: "Better not disturb them. I can hear the meeting just fine
             from out here."
    
    [Clock strikes twelve. Machinery is heard beyond the door.]
    
       Man: [whimpering] "Let me go...let me go...someone free me...."
    Karras: "Behold, Sheriff Truart! From the lowly street rot emerges the
            loyal worker. That which I call...the Servant."
    Truart: "THIS is one of the tramps I delivered to you? The
            transformation is spectacular!"
    Karras: "And neither want nor worry has he."
    Truart: "Lucky fellow!" [chuckles] "Strange you should mention worries,
            Karras...because I do have one. It's not that the money's not
            right, no...it's just that I need to be convinced you've taken
            the proper precautions. The Truart name is untainted by
            scandal, and I will not be the one to bring it humiliation and
            ruin."
    Karras: "Trust thee in me, for 'tis The Builder Himself who guides me.
            And the baron...need never know."
    Truart: "Y-Yesss...I'm glad your Builder guides you, but it would make
            me feel even more confident if you were to let me in on
            your...WHOLE scheme. Come now! What's the crux of it all, eh
            Karras? Show me what's so special about your new Servants."
    Karras: "Err...'tis impossible to hide anything from YOU, good Sheriff.
            I will give thee full explanation then in the form of...a
            demonstration. The visual in this instance would far surpass
            any...verbal elaborations I could relate. But, I must ask thee
            to step away from the masked servant. That's right. And
            meanwhile, I will retrieve our...volunteer. A most unfortunate
            guttersnipe who waits just outside."
    
    [A door is heard opening.]
    
    Karras: "Come, come, gentle beggar. And stand ye JUST there, next to
            the masked man. Yes. Now, all is in readiness, so keep thine
            eyes on the new arrival, whilst I signal the Servant...thusly."
    
    [A button is pressed, a whirring of machinery is heard. It continues in
    the background of the conversation.]
    
    Truart: "My word! The mask emits a red vapour!"
     Woman: [in background beneath the conversation] "Uh! Please, no!
            Help!"
    Karras: "Continue thy observations, Truart."
     Woman: [Screams several times.]
    Truart: "But it consumes them! We're in peril!"
    Karras: "Fear thee not, stout Sheriff, for we are safe at this
            distance! See? Already the reaction ceases."
    
    [The machinery noises stop.]
    
    Truart: "They're gone! And what remains in their stead? Sand?
            No...RUST!"
    Karras: "Indeed, 'tis very much like rust, and harmless once settled.
            Brother Feegan, I pray thee, do sweep up...what is left of
            those two."
    Feegan: "Yes."
    
    [Footsteps are heard.]
    
    Truart: "A weapon then! Quite fantastic! And...monstrous! Of course,
            you'll keep these Servants you're making away from me and my
            men?"
    Karras: "Thou need not even ask!"
    Truart: "Then, we are in agreement! You need subjects for your Servant
            project, and *I* can supply them. Vagabonds, street scum,
            prostitutes...those who will not be missed by anyone of
            consequence. They'll be rounded up, charges invented, et
            cetera. Still, there's always risk. So I will give
            you...twenty, no more. For your part, you'll rememeber to keep
            our transactions ABSOLUTELY secret! And of course, deliver my
            payment...IN ADVANCE, IN FULL...tomorrow. I don't trust you,
            Karras. So you'll receive the subjects only after I confirm the
            payment. Well, our business here is finished."
    
    [Footsteps, receding.]
    
    Karras: "Yesss...Fare thee well, Truart!"
    
    [A door opens, then closes again.]
    
    Karras: "Now see, friends...with the Builder's efficiency I have
            completed TWO tasks, with but ONE...effort. Firstly, I did
            secure twenty subjects to be transformed into Servants, as you
            heard. And secondly, I secured the loyalty of the wary Sheriff
            Truart. Yes! His loyalty...heh. Truart fears scandal. Yet his
            actions of late could bring him that, or worse, if ever made
            public! Now, behold, my wax cylinder machine! I've used it to
            capture the Sheriff's very words, even as they moved through
            the air, today. Harken, friends!"
    
    [A machine is heard to start up, and the Sheriff's voice is heard,
    sounding slightly different, as if recorded.]
    
    Truart: "...and *I* can supply them. Vagabonds, street scum,
            prostitutes...those who will not be missed by anyone of
            consequence...."
    
    [The macine stops.]
    
    Karras: "With his voice thus preserved, Truart dare not betray me or
            he'll have the scandal he fears so much. Brother Feegan! Thou
            wilt see to it that this wax cylinder machine gets safely to
            the bank on the morrow. You will find the safety deposit box
            key [*]. Friends, we are adjourned. Return now to your duties."
    
    [Footsteps recede...a door opens, then closes.]
    
    Garrett: "I'd like to get a copy of that key myself."
    
    [*] This part of the conversation is random, the selection being made when
    the mission starts. Karras will say the key is in one of the following
    locations:
    
    "in the acolytes' quarters."
    "in the guards' quarters."
    "in the office on the second floor of the church."
    "in the factory area."
    "in the east tower."
    "in the west tower."
    "at the pulpit in the church."
    "in a closet near the pulpit."
    "in the shed atop the acolytes' quarters."
    
    ******************************
    
    Two Mechanists in the church:
    
    Mechanist 1: "Dost thou know whether the Sheriff hath arrived?"
    Mechanist 2: "The Sheriff? What dost he here?"
    Mechanist 1: "In Karras' name, man, hast thou been stuffing leaves in
                 thine ears? Hast thou not heard about the meeting?"
    Mechanist 2: "Oh! The meeting! I hadst...forgotten that today wast the
                 date."
    Mechanist 1: "Fah! Thou hast NO idea what I speak on! Thou must learn
                 to pay more attention, lest thee find thyself fallen by
                 the wayside as the future passes thee by!"
    
    ******************************
    
    Two mechanists near the workshop:
    
      Man: "A pox upon it! Never shall I finish my design! The springs and
           gears conspire and confound me!"
    Woman: "Calm, friend, calm! On the morrow let ME come by thy workbench
           and help thee untangle things."
      Man: "I...I would be MOST grateful couldst thou help."
    Woman: "'Tis nothing. Think on it as the copper and tin mingle to make
           the stronger bronze...so dost WE each mingle and flow together
           in Karras's forge to make stronger as well."
      Man: "Thou art wise."
    Woman: "'Tis Karras who is TRULY wise. His bounty, and the machines we
           construct shall help ALL of humanity in the coming times, and
           all shall know HIS wisdom."
      Man: "I will be glad to have this wretched task behind me, that I
           might move to a more profitable position."
    
    ******************************
    
    Two Mechanists outside by the Iron Beast:
    
    Woman: "I tell you, for thou art my friend, that I wish the Children
           of Karras were more, umm...mild seeming."
      Man: "Thou'rt not the first to be afeared of them, for their visage
           is wrought to strike terror into the enemies of Karras.
           Or...those who might consider BECOMING enemies."
    Woman: "Well, and it might, for it near strikes terror into mine own
           heart."
      Man: "Thinkest thou thine own sauced body of leaky flesh and
           wheezing gases is glorious to the eyes of The Builder? Nay!
           'Tis thy SOUL that is the only thing of any worth! So 'tis with
           the Children of Karras, for they are the blessed and immortal
           heirs of The Builder! While I and thou are but the paltry tools
           that forged them."
    Woman: "As thou sayest."
    
    [Long pause as the woman walks away.]
    
      Man: "What a fool! Karras would be well rid of that one!"

    Scroll on table in guards' quarters:
    
    "Master Gaspar:
    
    Thy name was mentioned to our lord Karras as one who might be welcoming to the
    future. Perhaps thou hast heard of the Mechanists, but thou may be confusing us
    with our hoary forebears, the Hammers. Where they spurned thou and thy kind,
    the Mechanists embrace those with a voice in the city's future. Perhaps thou
    might attend a sermon at Angelwatch? There be many wonders we would be happy to
    show thee in our workshops.

    to other nobility. I am given to understand that your favours are reserved for
    those who please the Mechanist Tower. My lord desires to do so, but he is
    concerned that his gifts may be incorrect, or perhaps misdelivered. Please let
    me know by messenger if I can do aught to advise him.

    Parchment on workbench in workshop:
    
    "Friend Coltus,
    
    Recent experiments have confirmed my fears -- mere water can indeed halt the
    Builder's Children! If a significant amount of moisture pools in the aft
    boiler, the result is complete paralysis! The weather has been agreeable of
    late, but if a thunderstorm were to strike....
    Coltus, I task you with fixing this problem immediately. Water poured directly
    into the boiler may shut the Children down, but you must at least be competent
    enough to protect them from a simple rain shower!
    
    -- Father Karras"

    Notice on wall in wax press room:
    
    "Friends,
    
    If thou wouldst make a mold, press thine item into the wax press. Such
    impression being made, use the putty knife to scrape away the top layer of wax.
    Use this method, friends, to make molds of most small articles -- keys, cogs,
    gears, springs, and the like.
    
    To create a tool of hardened steel, give thy mold to Brother Mendelus, whose
    place it is to work the fires of the forge.
    
    -- Coltus"

    Scroll on floor between pews in the church:
    
    "Lord Karras:
    
    Your sermon was so inspiring. I never thought of it that way, to be a little
    cog, floating around in a big boiler. SO warm and toasty, you see? Please
    accept my compliments, and do tell me you will come to the dinner we are having
    on Saturday.
    
                   Lady Einhorn"
