    2.Items and weapons
    ====================================================================
    Important items (common items, NOT used in puzzles)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    Medical kits - contain flasks
    Flasks - restore health
    Biscuits - restore health
    Books - help solve puzzles or explain part of the storyline
    Cartridges(ammo) - bullets for the shotgun/revolver
    Scrolls - same as books
    Oil cans - add oil to the oil lamp
    Oil lamp - used in dark places
    
    Weapons
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    Shotgun - powerful weapon, found in the begining of the game. Also
    throws you back a bit when fired. Old cartridges, must be kept out
    of water
    Revolver - another good weapon, but takes some time to load it. It
    is found later in the game. Cartridges are water proof.
    NOTE : Try to save ammo for these weapons - aim carefully
    Sword - very good weapon - it's long(hit enemies before they hit 
    you) and powerfull.
    Sabre - same as sword, except that it can be broken. After that it's
    still better than a knife or dagger
    Knives - very bad weapon
    Daggers - same as above, however some of them have special abilities
    Bow - not a very effective weapon, slow and you'll have maximum two
    arrows for it
    
    3.Enemies
    ====================================================================
    Zombies - very weak, very easy, very common
    Furry monsters - a little difficult if you're not good
    Rats - weak, but you can't kill them
    Spiders - same as above
    Pirate - pretty hard, good thing there's only one in the game
    Ghosts - very powerful, cannot be destroyed
    Chthonian - same as above
    Deep ones - quite powerful, but can be avoided
    Bird-like things - weak, but hard to hit
    Spider - weak AND slow
    Pregzt - final enemy, practically cannot be harmed*
    NOTE : Most fights can be avoided

    5.Walkthrough
    ====================================================================
    NOTE : If you can't carry enough items at a time, drop something. 
    You can pick it up later.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    Move the chest over the trapdoor and the cupboard in front of the
    window to avoid some fights. Search the chest for a shotgun. Search
    the cupboard for an indian cover. Get the oil lamp. Search the piano
    for a letter. Search the shelves for a book. Time to read. Go down
    the stairs.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    Search the shelves for an oil can, get the bow and exit through the
    door.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    Go through the door on the left.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    Search the desk for a key. Use the key to open the chest and get the
    sabre. Open the door and kill the zombie with the sabre. Go to the
    opposite room and proceed to the bedroom.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    Take the vase and get out your shotgun(especially if the sabre is
    broken). Shoot the monster. After you hit it once it will sit on the
    ground. Either shoot it again or take out the sabre and finish it
    before it gets up. Throw the vase and get the key that was inside.
    Use it to unlock the drawer and get the mirrors from there.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    Go through the opposite door. It's a bathroom. Search the cabinet to
    find a medical kit. Open it and drink the flask. Fill the oil lamp
    with oil from the oil can and throw away the empty box, flask and
    oil can. Exit and enter the door straight ahead(only door left).
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    Put the mirrors on the statues and the monsters will die. Go down
    the stairs to the 3rd floor.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    Go to the right of the stairs, open and enter the door. There is a
    ghost sitting in an armchair here. Don't mind him, search the 
    cupboard for some cartridges and load them. Get the matches, but be
    careful not to disturb the ghost. Get the gramophone and get out of
    here.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    Go to the right of the stairs and enter the next door.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    Enter the first door here.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    There's only a notebook here AND you'll have to fight a monster to
    get it, but it contains much valuable information. So, get the
    notebook, kill the monster and it's reading time.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    Enter the 2nd door, the bathroom.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    There is a monster here, but it can't be defeated. So, start running
    and get the jug. If you have time, also search the cabinet for
    another medical kit. Open it drink the flask and throw away all the
    garbage.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    Enter the next door.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    It's dark here. Use the matches to light the oil lamp. Put it on the
    floor. Get the statue and book from the table. Search the cabinet 
    for some bullets for a revolver. You can't use them yet, because you
    don't have a revolver. Never mind the last door. Go to the lower
    floor.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    Enter the door on your right(not the double doors), which is the 
    kitchen.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    In the main room you'll find a box of matches, some knives and a pot
    of stew. You only need the pot. Enter the door opposite to the sink.
    Prepare for a fight. After that, fill the jug with water from the
    barrel. Search under the pile(of something) for a shoe box. Open it
    and get the revolver. Load the bullets. Go into the main room and
    go through the other small door. Get the key and search the cupboard
    for some biscuits. Eat them and throw away the box. Go out and into
    the hallway and enter the first door.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    You are in a dining room FULL of zombies, so unless you want to 
    fight them all, put the pot of stew on the table and they'll leave
    you alone. You can still kill them, so if you have a few spare
    bullets, practise your shooting. Enter the single door.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    This room is full of deadly smoke. Use the jug with water to put out
    the cigars in the ashtray. Get the lighter. Search the cabinet for
    a book and a record. Read the book. Now, go in the door opposite to
    the kitchen.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    You should be in a sort of a garden. Search the statue for a few 
    arrows and leave. Quickly.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    You should have noticed a suit of armor in the house. Go back to it
    and walk near it. It will attack you. To kill it, throw the heavy
    statue at it. Get the sword. It won't break, unlike the sabre. Go
    back to the corridor on the 2nd floor(the one with the dark room)
    and enter the last door. 
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    Cover the painting of the warrior with the indian cover, it will
    throw axes at you if you don't. Walk throgh the corridor until the
    indian painting at the other side starts shooting arrows. Take out
    your bow and shoot back. If you save any arrows, the bow can be used
    as a weapon. Enter the door at the end of the corridor.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    Get the book from the desk and try reading it. It's a false book. 
    Push the clock and get the parchment and key from the opening. Read
    the parchment and leave. Enter the double doors in the middle of the
    corridor.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    It's dark here, so light the oil lamp and put it on the ground. A
    ghost will come after you, so RUN! Go to the left of your starting
    place. Look for a part of the shelves that looks strange. That's a
    secret door. There should be an empty space for a book to the right
    of it, place the false book there and enter the passage. Here, take
    the talisman and search the shelves for a few daggers and LOTS of
    things to read. Have in mind that one of the books is curesed and 
    you can safely read it only on the pentageam on the floor here. Read
    about the sacrificial daggers, equip yourself with the one that's
    supposed to send a creature back to it's own world and go get the
    ghost! Throw away the other daggers and books, you won't need them.
    Leave the library and go to the 1st floor. Enter the door opposite
    to the one with the cigars.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    Use the sword, kill the pirate and get his key. There's a book lying
    around here too. Go back to the room with the cigars. Unlock the 
    other door there and enter. 
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    Search the shelves for a book and a record. Put your sabre in it's
    place(if it's broken, place the handle and then the blade). A
    secret passage will open, but ignore it for now. Go back to the
    pirate room and unlock the doors there. Go inside.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    Play the last record you found on the gramophone. While the dancers
    are dancing(that didn't sound too good), get the key. Avoid them at
    all cost. Go back to the door leading to the garden and unlock and
    enter the other door near it.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    You're in a cellar. Look around for some bullets for the revolver.
    Load them. At the other end of the cellar there are some barrels.
    Get the block that's holding them, but be careful not to get hit by
    the barrels. Throw away the block. Search the shelves for a book.
    Read it and go down the secret passage in the study.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    The bridge will fall once you step on it, so RUN! Walk through the
    tunnels until you see the Chthonian. Now's a very good time to RUN!
    You'll reach a furry monster. I suggest you shoot it with the rifle.
    Continue through the tunnels. You'll reach an area with water, but
    the Chthonian will be blocking your way. After it comes after you, 
    run back across the tunnels until you see a passage to the right.
    Run through it and you'll safely reach the above mentioned area.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    Walk to the other end of the bridge(or dock, or whatever). There are
    some Deep Ones in the water, but never mind them. You'll come to a
    section of the bridge that will fall in the water. Jump over it and
    proceed to the end. Climb into the tunnel.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    Kill the spider and go to the other end. Get out your revolver and
    if you can, shoot the bird-like thing. Now just jump from pillar to
    pillar to the other end of the room. You're in the tunnels again.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    However there's no Chthonian this time. Follow the tunnel and at the
    intersection go right. 
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    You should be in a room with wooden bridges. There is one of those
    birds here and some Deep Ones in the water. Never mind them, if you
    are attacked, get out a weapon and kill the attacker. It may seem
    hard(it IS!), but get to the other end of the room and unlock the
    chest with the key from the dance hall. You'll get a gem and a VERY
    interesting manuscript. Push the stone behind the chest and enter
    the passage. Proceed until you are in a dark place.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    This is a giant maze. It's dark. Light the lamp. Find the exit. It's
    a locked door on the right side of the maze, but you'll have to go
    through the whole maze to get to it. Unlock the door with the gem.
    Enter.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    Pregzt(or Pickford) is here. He's that tree-like thing. Jump in the
    water. The matches and rifle won't work anymore and the lamp will go
    out. Also, Deep Ones appear and Pregzt starts shooting fireballs at
    you. Ignore everything, get to the altar beneath Pregzt and place 
    the talisman on it. Light the lamp with the lighter and throw it at
    Pregzt. No more enemies! Get to the other door(not the one you came
    in through) and trigger the mechanism with the hook. Enter the maze
    (it's lit now) and open the nearest door with the hook.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    Go back to the first tunnels and find your way out. It's in the
    tunnel that you first saw the Chthonian in. Good thing you removed
    the barrels, eh? 
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    It turns out that the rats were servants of Pregzt too...
    Just get to the front door and get out of here.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
                                    THE END
