    The Lost Files Of Sherlock Holmes: The Case Of The Rose Tattoo
    
    Walkthru
    
    NOTE: There is a lot of flexibility in this game, allowing you to go to 
    various sundry locations in haphazard order. In fact, the order that I 
    went through the game when writing the walkthru is not the order in 
    which I played the first time - hindsight (or notes) is such a wonderful 
    thing. So, this is less a walkthru than a script of what to do to get past 
    a scene or puzzle.
    
    Items that you can acquire are in bold, while poignant information or 
    new map locations are underlined.
    
    You start as Watson, outside 221B Baker St. Mycroft, Holmes' brother, 
    was hurt in an explosion at the Diogenes Club.

    Curiously, in my initial run of the game, the Major (excuse me - 
    Managing Director - actually
    
    dropped the trident in. In later runthroughs, he didn't - perhaps the 
    game keeps track of how much 
    
    help you need and does extra "looky here!" animations)
    
    This is Major Misteray - despite his protestations

    2 "You stay here"
    
    You now have only a few options on the map. However, recall that the 
    Weary Punt is for sailors, so Holmes' day-laborour costume won't work 
    there. You need another costume - and if you didn't find
    
    David Lloyd-Jones' stash, then you have two reasons to go to 
    
    This location is done!

    ENTER beaded curtain
    
    Punt Back Room
    
    LOOK Scarrett and the ending begins
    
    The only thing I never figured out was how Holmes knew there was a 
    composite involving one of the royal family - or, more to the point a 
    female member. I suspected a compromising picture was missing from 
    Lawton's album, but had assumed it was something that would make Lady 
    Cordelia break off the engagement. Yet, when Holmes confronts Major 
    Mysteray he refers to the picture explicitly.
    
    Overall, though - what fun!
