Date: Fri, 03 Jan 1997 13:42:36 GMT The Drowned God WALKTHROUGH Bequest Globe and Binah WALKTHROUGH You start the game in the Bequest Globe. 1. Click on the Ancient valve-operated computer, you will be asked to type in your name. In turn, you'll receive your Sacred Number and Sacred Symbol, which you will need to remember throughout the game. Once you have your sacred number and symbol, enter the Crypto wheel just to the right of the computer. Click on one of the two hot spots (either 1 or 9). Once you enter the Crypto wheel you can either go up to Kether, or down to Malchut first. In both places, you must enter the room and click on the monitor in the middle of the room. After the message, a number will flash on the screen, remember this number. Once you have both numbers (3 and 8), leave the Crypto wheel and go back to the ancient valve-operated computer. Enter the numbers, 3 and 8, and press ENTER. You now have access to the first Realm, Binah. Go back to the Crypto wheel and click on the hot spot corresponding to number 2. You will enter the Realm of Binah, starting in the interior of the Stonehenge formation. Walk through the Temporal Gateways until you reach the Armoured Torso. (Note, there are four possible places to go in the Stonehenge formation: the Armoured Torso, the Helmet, Merlin's Oak, and the Beach.) Enter the Armoured Torso and walk around the room until you find the Shield Puzzle on the back of one of the chairs. Click on the puzzle to start. The object of the game is to connect all of the nodes without crossing the line you have drawn. One solution to this puzzle is shown on page XVII of the game manual. After you solve the puzzle and see the vision of the Holy Grail, walk out of the room through the same door you entered to see more visions. Your reward for solving the Shield puzzle is the Tower card. Place it in your inventory. Once the visions are finished, you can turn around and enter the Armoured Torso once again. This time, you'll see an alien craft rather than the Round table. Walk over to the computer where the Man In Black was standing. You must select your Sacred Symbol, slide the symbol for Binah time (the Grail, the top symbol), and click on the position for Binah on the Crypto wheel (the top, right corner of the square. Once you've successfully selected these three elements, the alien craft will rise and you'll discover the elevator down to Leonardo's Workshop. At this point, you should exit the door in the Armoured Torso, and walk through the Stonehenge formation until you find Merlin's Oak. Note: by turning around in the middle of the Stonehenge formation, you'll change where the temporal gates will transport you. Once you find Merlin's Oak, click on the three drawers until you release the Elemental. One pattern that works to release it is to open the bottom drawer first, then the middle, and finally the top drawer. Once you release the Elemental, it will guide you to the beach. Walk through the Stonehenge formation again until you find the beach. Walk through the gate that the Elemental opens for you. Walk to the water's edge and click on the figure to the left of the pier to summon the boat. Get on the boat, and you will be taken to Avalon. Enter the tower building and you will face the Knights Templar puzzle. A solution to this puzzle is found on page XXIX of the game manual. The goal is to remove the last flame or flames so that only the chalice remains, thus forcing the Knight to drink. Note: you will always lose the first game because the Knight places the chalice on a stable square. Thus, you must win the second and third games to win. Once you beat the Knight, an elevator will appear behind him. Get in the elevator and go up to visit Morgan Le Fay. Here, you will receive the Star card for getting past the drunken knight. After you hear Morgan Le Fay's directions, take the elevator down to the bottom (2 floors down). Get out of the elevator on the bottom floor and walk directly across to the Priory of Sion book. Place the Tower card from your inventory on the table, and you'll be able to open and explore the book. (This will also unlock the metal door to Leonardo's workshop. Be sure to look at the illustration on the wall and checkout its mini-animations.) Now walk through the white door at the end of the hallway and enter the Einstein and Newton puzzle. The goal here is to arrange the 4 phrases from Einstein and 4 phrases from Newton into a logical conversation. The solution to this puzzle can be found on page XXX of the game manual. Once you solve the puzzle, you will receive a metal ball, actually it's the Automaton's Heart. Place it in your inventory. Once you complete the Einstein and Newton puzzle, walk back through the white door to the hall. Walk across the hall until you reach the metal door, go through the door to enter Leonardo's workshop Once in Leonardo's workshop, find the Star Map puzzle. You must first place the Star card on the holder before you can proceed. The goal here is to match numbers in each axis to make the pattern of the Sirius constellation. The axis co-ordinates are found in a book on Leonardo's workbench. The corresponding numbers on the map are, in order: 17, 2, 19, 5, 24, and 37. Now you'll be able to view Leonardo's secret drawings. Afterward, you will receive the Star card back. Now walk over to Leonardo's bench, when you turn around, you will find a stone with the Automaton's image on it. Place the Automaton's Heart you received in the Einstein and Newton room in the stone to activate the Automaton. Go over to the Automaton and pick up the Babel Cylinder that it produced for you. You're now ready to go back to the hall, and take the elevator up to re-visit Morgan Le Fay. Find the elevator, and go up two floors to Morgan Le Fay. Give her the Star card and she'll direct you as to where to place the Babel cylinder. Once done, she'll give you the Moon card. Get in the elevator and go down two floors. Enter Leonardo's workshop and walk through the door by the Automaton. You will find a dark hallway with a faintly lit box at the entrance. Place the Moon card on the box, and the hallway will light up, showing you the last puzzle in Binah, Merlin's Retort. This is a timed puzzle, so you must match the symbols quickly. You can turn the box by clicking on the left or right edge of each panel. Match all of the symbols, and you'll be transported back to the interior of the Stonehenge formation. Here you must go back to several places in Binah and set back the clocks. Each place will have something you must do to set the time back. For example, click on the candle when you go back to Morgan Le Fay's lair, and slide the grail back into its original position when you go to the monitor in the alien craft (Majestic 12 puzzle). You will be rewarded with the Holy Grail, and transported back to the Bequest Globe, where you can continue your quest for Truth. Chesed WALKTHROUGH Back at the Bequest Globe, enter the Crypto wheel by clicking on either 1 or 9, you can either go up to Kether, or down to Malchut first. In both places, you must enter the room and click on the monitor in the middle of the room. In Kether--the upper room, you will receive the Magician card. Walk over to the world map on the wall and place the Magician card in the holder. You will access information about Stonehenge. When finished, walk back over to the monitor and receive the code number (4) In Malchut, you'll receive the Temperance card. Walk over to the drawing on the wall and place the Temperance card in the holder. After seeing the painting, walk back to the monitor to receive the code number (8). Once you have both numbers (4 and 8), leave the Crypto wheel and go back to the ancient valve-operated computer. Enter the numbers, 4 and 8, and press ENTER. You now have access to the second Realm, Chesed. 5. Go back to the Crypto wheel and click on the hot spot corresponding to number 3. By walking through the Crypto wheel, you will enter the Realm of Chesed, starting in the Pyramid area. The Chesed environment has multiple pathways between the Sun pyramid, the Moon pyramid, the DNA Ark, and the U.S.S. Scorpio areas. Most of the puzzles can be solved nonlinearly. The first pyramid you'll see once you enter Chesed is the Horus Pyramid Climb up the steps and you'll find Horus Pyramid Game. The goal here is to fill in all of the nodes. Here's one solution, just click on the nodes in the following order. If you want to start the puzzle over, just turn around twice and you'll start the puzzle from scratch. Once you beat this puzzle, you'll receive a metal ball, which you will to place in the plinth at the Oracle. Next, find the Ball Court puzzle, it's directly across from the Horus pyramid steps, you'll find a pathway--take it and turn left. The object of the Ball Court puzzle is to raise all of the stones to make a level surface. One pattern to solve this puzzle is click on the stone (or stones) in the back row first (while they are lowered). Once the row is level, move to the next row towards you. Repeat this until all the rows are level. Now click on the key on the far wall. This will open a door and you'll be able to walk into the interior of the Moon pyramid. Click on drawing on the wall, and you'll receive the top half of the Emperor card. You can leave this room now and go out to the front of the Horus pyramid. The pyramid next to the Horus pyramid, is the Sun pyramid. Climb up its steps and you'll find four cards. Pick them up one at a time and carry them over to the calendar stone at the top of the Moon pyramid, which is around the corner from the Horus and Sun pyramids. When you finish placing the fourth card, you will be will receive the Heart Stone from the calendar. With the Heart Stone, you can access the interior of the Sun pyramid. Once you go inside the Sun Pyramid, you'll find Nine Men's Morris game. The computer AI is very tough to beat, however it does get progressively easier the more games you lose. The goal of the game is to place your markers three-in-a-row. When you place three markers in a row, you get to remove one of the computer's markers from the game. Of course, if the computer forms three in a row, you loose a marker. Once all seven markers are placed, you move by sliding one of your markers to an adjacent space. When you beat this game, you'll receive the bottom portion of the Emperor card. Now you're ready to go to the Oracle. Walk through the trench directly in front of the Moon pyramid steps. Walk down through the tunnel and go forward all the way up until you reach the plinth. Open the door and place the metal ball from inventory in the empty space. This will fill the Oracle with water so Horus can appear. Be sure to take the metal ball back and place in your inventory when the plinth door opens again. (You will need to place it on the Rod of Osiris in the sub.) Walk over to the Oracle, Hones will appear and ask you to make the choice of life (alpha) or death (omega) for him. Choose life and a secret door will open in the pool. (Otherwise, you'll need to enter the DNA Ark via the interiors of the Moon or Sun pyramids. You will receive the High Priest card after you make your selection. Walk down into the empty pool, and you'll see a doorway. Follow the tunnel until you get to the door with the bright white light. You'll see the Water Organ. All you need to do is press any of the keys (in any order or combination) 6 times. You will then be elevated to the DNA Ark, where you will immediately see Noah. Turn around and you'll see the tattoo body. To complete the Tattoo Body puzzle, you must scan the body of the UFOnaut and find all four representations of the Rod of Osiris. Each time you find one, and click on the scanner, you will receive a DNA sample. After you find all four Rod of Osiris tattoos and receive all four DNA samples, turn around and walk to Noah. One at a time, grab a DNA rod from your inventory and place it on Noah's chest. You will receive the Lovers card after you give Noah all four samples. At this point, you should have the Lovers, the Emperor, and the High Priest cards. If so, three indentations will appear in Noah's chest. Place the cards there and you will be transported to the U.S.S. Scorpio submarine. You will start in the flooded engine room. Turn around and you'll see the Rod puzzle (which you will need to find later). Now find the periscope room (up two floors). Here you will find a key around the neck of the frozen captain. You will also find a Morse code chart. In the captain's quarters, you will need to enter Morse code for the word GENESIS Once you have the key and the Morse code for the word genesis, find the Captain's quarters. Once there, enter the Morse code for genesis in the transceiver on the desk. This will unlock the bathroom door behind you. Enter the Captain's bathroom. Go through the memo's in the folder. You'll find another key behind the last memo. Take it. Now you need to find the flooded engine room, the room you were in when you were transported to the sub. There you will find the Rod game. Here you will have to manipulate the x, y, z, and rotational coordinates of the Rod of Osiris. First you must place the two keys in your inventory into the two keyholes. (Easier said than done.) You will have four tries at placing the Rod in the correct coordinates and in the right rotational orientation (right side up). The first thing you should do at the start of the game is move all of control knobs to the far left, this is the 0 position. Turn around and you'll see the position of the Rod. The upper left-hand knob controls the X axis. Each click will move the Rod one square to the right. (Note that if the Rod is in the rightmost box, it will move to the leftmost box in one click.) The upper right-hand knob controls the XY axis. Each click moves the Rod down one square to the right on the X axis, and two squares up the Y axis. (This is a tricky one, but the only way to move the rod along the Y axis.) The lower left-hand knob controls the Z axis. Each click moves the Rod back on square along the Z axis. The lower right-hand knob controls the rotation of the Rod. The Rod must end up vertical, right-side up. It's best to change one or two movements at a time. You have four moves to complete the puzzle. Once you've completed the Rod puzzle, turn around and place the Oracle Orb in your inventory on the empty bar. You will be transported back to the Bequest Globe. Din WALKTHROUGH Back at the Bequest Globe, enter the Crypto wheel by clicking on either 1 or 9, you can either go up to Kether, or down to Malchut first. In both places, you must enter the room and click on the monitor in the middle of the room. In Kether--the upper room, you will receive the High Priestess card. Walk over to the world map on the wall and place the High Priestess card in the holder. You will access information about Stonehenge. When finished, walk back over to the monitor and receive the code number (5) In Malchut, you'll receive the Empress card. Walk over to the drawing on the wall and place the Empress card in the holder. After seeing the painting, walk back to the monitor to receive the code number (9). Once you have both numbers (5 and 9), leave the Crypto wheel and go back to the ancient valve-operated computer. Enter the numbers, 5 and 9, and press ENTER. Turn around and open the Crypto wheel. This time the number 5 on the wheel will be hot. Click on 5 and you'll enter the third Realm, Din. You enter Din in the Library, remember the bookcase you see because you'll need to place the books you find in this realm there later. Walk over to the desk, and you'll see the first puzzle on the wall the Traffic Control puzzle. You can control the direction by clicking on the intersection arrows. Once you solve the Traffic Control puzzle, you'll receive the Chariot card. Fall through the hole in the room and you'll face the next puzzle the Mechanical Maze. (There are other ways to proceed, this is a quick one.) In this puzzle, you'll face two elevators in each room. You must go through either the left door or the right door. One solution to get through the maze is to go first go Left, then Right, then Left, then Right, etc. until you make your way through the puzzle. Once out of the maze, you'll run into the old Relic Hunter. Follow him around. Eventually he'll split in two and kill himself Pick up the Book of Orion and the Relic Hand and place them in your inventory. Go to the Theatre of Memory. Up the stairs, you'll find Carl Jung's Memory Machine. You must determine the pattern by guessing the position of the four characters. After each of your guesses, you'll be told how many match and how many in the correct position. After trial and error, you determine the correct pattern. When you do, you'll receive the Flying Saucer book. On the other side of the same level is Allistar Crawley's machine. Select your Sacred Symbol to start the animation. When requested, place the Relic's Hand on the hand imprint. You will receive the Book of Lies. After the Memory Machine puzzle, walk up to the main room and click on the two dolls. One of them will give you the Justice card. Now leave the Theatre, go out and take the steps on your right. Notes for the rest of Din: The code for the Templar's Head is 555. The passwords for the Web Pages (on the Monitor after you complete the Four Server puzzle) are: Gene-Isis, Firebird, Lost Angels, and Majestic. Once you activate the machinery, go back to the house and find the instructions on the ticker-tape machine. You'll find the two pieces of the Stone in the Theatre AFTER you move the House and lift up the Theatre. Chokmah WALKTHROUGH Back at the Bequest Globe, enter the Crypto wheel by clicking on either 1 or 9, you can either go up to Kether, or down to Malchut first. In both places, you must enter the room and click on the monitor in the middle of the room. In Kether--the upper room, you will receive the XX card. Walk over to the world map on the wall and place the XX card in the holder. You will access information about Stonehenge. When finished, walk back over to the monitor and receive the code number. In Malchut, you'll receive the YY card. Walk over to the drawing on the wall and place the YY card in the holder. After seeing the painting, walk back to the monitor to receive the code number. Once you have both numbers, leave the Crypto wheel and go back to the ancient valve-operated computer. Enter the numbers and press ENTER. Turn around and open the Crypto wheel. This time the number 5 on the wheel will be hot. Click on 5 and you'll enter the fourth and last Realm, Chokmah. Once in Chokmah, find the Hacker's Caravan and enter by clicking on the door. You can explore the inside of the caravan. Walk to the bedroom at the end of the vehicle, check out the phone message, and check out the secret notebook. Walk into the small room by the couch. Click on the X-ray machine and you'll access the Brain Implant game. The goal of the puzzle is to force the AI to move to a spot next to you so that you can capture it on your next move. The key to winning this game is to go around the triangle in the lower left-hand corner of the puzzle (where there are two yellow spots in a row). By going around that loop, you're piece will be in the correct orientation to always capture the other piece. When you win this game, you'll receive the Hanged Man card, which you'll need to give to the Pigman in the Diner. Walk out of the caravan and go inside the Diner. Answer the phone (by the pinball machine). Now move over to the radio. You must tune in Edgar Mayce's broadcast. The broadcast is on the top line and about 8 notches over to the right (there are 11 notches total on the top line). Once you hear part (or all) of his message, turn around and you'll see a vision of the Pigman. When the Pigman asks you for an item, go to your inventory and give him the Hanged Man card. In return, he'll give you the Judgment card. When he disappears, turn to either side. Once back at the Bequest Globe, visit the upstairs and downstairs rooms just like you usually do. The cards you get will open the locked doors in those rooms. Behind each door, pick up another card but don't go further. Take those two cards back out to the main floor and use them on the door. This gives you different endings.
