    001-General Information
    This is a walkthrough for the game called "Book of 
    Legends". In this game, Charleston and Zoey work together 
    on a worldwide quest, in order to find Excalibur.
    To contact me about this guide, use my email address 
    Potomac River
    The game starts with Zoe at the Potomac River. Press the 
    start button on the left side of the boat to learn that it 
    is out of fuel.
    Pick up the funnel and the two gas cans. Use the funnel on 
    the boat engine, then use the two gas cans on the funnel. 
    Press the start panel to get the boat moving.
    Now you need to find the paper, scissors and marker. The 
    paper is on the boat floor, the scissors are on the seat, 
    and the marker is on the ledge above the seat.
    Move the throttle to the left, until the transparent piece 
    of paper matches up with the scenery. It's not too 
    difficult to find the match, because it is of the 
    Washington Monument.
    Pick up the binoculars and use them on the middle of the 
    paper to see the White House.
    Oval Office
    Click on the portrait of George Washington to find a hidden 
    safe. There are three indentations on the front of the desk 
    here; you want to find the three wooden panels which go 
    into these indentations. Charleston immediately determines 
    that they are the three-eighths the clue refers to.
    Put the panels in the proper indentations. A hidden 
    compartment with a key opens up. Use the key on the safe 
    behind the portrait of Washington. This reveals a five 
    dollar bill, with a picture of Abraham Lincoln on it.
    Lincoln Memorial
    Press the curtain button (at the base of a pillar on the 
    left) to shut the curtain, so Zoe can have privacy. Then, 
    click on the mason symbol which is on the pedestal below 
    Lincoln's feet.
    You need to clean it up. Take the water from the top of the 
    metal scaffolding, and use it on the bucket in the 
    lower/left. Take the detergent by the yellow cone in the 
    bottom/right, and use the detergent on the bucket.
    Take the rag, hanging left of the red toolbox. Use it on 
    the bucket, then use it on the symbol below Lincoln.
    Time to rebuild the symbol. Take the compass (from a pillar 
    on the left), the G (on the letters above Lincoln) and the 
    angle (by the ladder on the right). Use these items on the 
    The clue is Lincoln's eyes. Press the curtain button again 
    to learn that Lincoln is looking at the...
    Washington Memorial
    Click on the fire hydrant on the left. Get the shears from 
    the right, and use it on the branches by the fire hydrant 
    three times. Get the rake which is left of the fire 
    hydrant, and use it on the fire hydrant area.
    Examine the fire hydrant to get a key. Use it on the panel 
    at the bottom of the screen. This gives you a clue, leading 
    Capitol Building
    This is straightforward. Click on all five lights in this 
    scene. Get the stand (from the right side of the screen) 
    and put it on the stand (in the middle of the screen). Get 
    the gavel (from the lower/left corner) and use it on the 
    stand three times.
    A secret compartment opens. Click on it for a blueprint 
    The Library of Congress
    Click on the statue of Baphomet, behind the stand. This 
    causes Zoe to notice a plaque fragment in the lower/right.
    Pick up the plaque, then find the other three parts to it. 
    It's a plaque of Baphomet. Use it on the statue. Then, set 
    both light controls to "off".
    A book appears, leading our heroes to Prague.
    Odd Jobs
    Before Zoe can fly to Prague, she needs to get money for a 
    plane ticket. In order to get money, she needs to work some 
    jobs. Each location you've been to has two jobs for her to 
    There are five types of jobs, in total.
    1. From the List: The most common job, in which you find 
    all the objects on the list.
    2. Same: Find the same object, multiple times. For example, 
    the Oval Office has a job in which you find eight 
    3. Take Photos: Similar to same, you want to find the same 
    object, multiple times. Unlike same, most of the screen is 
    blurred out, due to the camera.
    4. Put It Back: The screen is split in half. Move things 
    around on the left half of the screen, so it matches the 
    right have of the screen.
    5. Clean Up and Fix: Solve a short puzzle in the area.
    The jobs in Washington DC are these:

    Prague Orloj
    The clue mentions the freemasons, which were mentioned by 
    the Lincoln Memorial. Find all seven of the Mason symbols 
    on this screen.
    Zoe concludes that since there were seven symbols, 7:00 is 
    the right time. Click on the long hand of the clock 
    multiple times, until it reaches the 7 on the left.
    This opens up a secret compartment, with a plaque for St. 
    Vitus Cathedral.
    Saint Vitus
    The riddle contains seven letters which are capitalized, 
    when they should not be. All those letters are on this 
    screen: B, A, P, H, O, M, E, T. Click on them all.
    Putting the letters together, Zoe gets "Baphomet", who was 
    mentioned in the Library of Congress. Pull the red carpet 
    (in the lower/left) aside, then click on the letters on 
    "Baphomet" in order.
    The unused letters on the floor spell out "bridge", so 
    that's our next location.
    Charles Bridge
    Click on the telescope here to ensure that it is broken. 
    Then, find the four telescope pieces and use them on the 
    The telescope costs 10 coins to use. Click on all ten of 
    them, then use the coins on the telescope. Click on the 
    telescope to see through it. Zoe sees a picture of Gollum, 
    from Golden Lane.
    Golden Lane
    This is straightforward. Find all seven parts of the golden 
    mask. It is an Egyptian mask, so Zoe decides to visit the 
    nearby museum with a famous Egyptian exhibit.
    National Museum
    A mask, just like the one Zoe found, is here. The mask in 
    the museum has seven keyholes. Find all seven keys and use 
    them on the mask. The mask opens up. Behind it is the Arch 
    of Triumph, located in Paris, France.

    Arc of Triumph
    We need some red lights here. Click on the electrical box 
    in the lower/left. It's locked.
    Find the lever and square bar, to make a lock opener. Use 
    it on the electrical box to open it. Click on the 
    electrical box again to turn off all the lights.
    There are four lamps on the screen, as well as four red 
    light bulbs. Find the four red bulbs, and use them on the 
    four lamps. Click on the electrical box again to turn the 
    lights on. A Da Vinci painting which is in the Louvre 
    Louvre Gardens
    We need to drain the pool here. Click on the red box on the 
    ground, which is the service box. The key to the box is by 
    the statue, so pick up the key, then use it on the box.
    The valve is broken. Find the wrench, the valve and the 
    handle. Use them one the red box to fix the valve and drain 
    the pool. Look inside for a statue of the Virgin Mary. In 
    France, she is better known as "Notre Dame".
    Notre Dame
    This place is undergoing repairs at the moment, which is 
    unfortunate because we need to have light shining. Find the 
    knife, then use it on the largest sheet (against the back 
    A tile is highlighted by the sun. Take the pickaxe from the 
    left wall, then use it on the tile. Examine it to find a 
    picture of the Paris Pantheon.
    The Pantheon
    The Foucault pendulum is here. We want to draw a picture 
    with it. First, find all four pieces of paper. Use them on 
    the pendulum.
    Then, find duck tape, a paint, and a brush. Use them all on 
    the pendulum; Zoe will tape the brush to the pendulum. 
    There is paint on the brush, so it draws a design on the 
    papers below the pendulum.
    The design is in this room, below the statue on the right. 
    Click on it to find a hidden compartment. Inside is a model 
    of the Eiffel Tower.
    Eiffel Tower
    The building to the right has five circles above the 
    doorway. There are five yellow suns on this screen. Click 
    on all the suns and use them on the circles.
    A compartment opens, containing a gondola. Now you need to 
    find three statues of saints. Find them all. Each statue 
    has a word on its base, and when you put them in the right 
    order (combined with the gondola), it is clear that the 
    next location is Venice.

    Rio della Verona
    The clue mentions the free mason's symbol. There are eight 
    symbols similar to the free mason symbol on this screen. 
    Find them all and click on them.
    Only one symbol is authentic. There is a lever (which looks 
    like a flag pole) above it. Take the gondolier's pole, the 
    rope and the hook. Zoe puts them all together. Use the 
    device on the lever to pull it.
    A small bell rings, and the bell tower at Piazza San Marco 
    respondes. Zoe decides to investigate in this bell tower.
    Bell Tower
    The clue mentions Leo, Cancer and Scorpio. Those are all 
    Zodiac signs, and on the ground here is a selection of 
    Zodiac signs. Click on the three for Leo (lion), Cancer 
    (crab) and Scorpio (scorpion).
    Next, find the three statuettes of saints, and put them on 
    the three Zodiac signs. Saint Michael (the angel) goes on 
    Scorpio, Saint Peregrine (with a wounded leg) goes on Leo, 
    and Saint Mary Magdalene (holding a skull in her arms) goes 
    on Cancer.
    Putting the saints in place opens a hidden compartment with 
    a key. Take the key and use it to open the gate guarding 
    the bell mechanism (on the right).
    Find the crank (on the bench) and use it on the bell 
    mechanism. A building in the distance will blink its 
    lights, in response to the bell ringing. Click on that 
    building to learn it is the Venice Library.
    Venice Library
    The clue mentions free masons, roses and suns. What do you 
    know? There are many mason symbols, roses and suns on this 
    screen! Find six suns, five roses and four mason symbols.
    On the floor are three concentric circles, with numbers. 
    The clue says to press roses, masons and sun. Press five 
    (for roses) on the outer ring, four (for masons) in the 
    middle ring, and six (for suns) in the inner ring. A hidden 
    staircase leading to catacombs opens.
    Venice Catacombs
    It's dark in here! Take the torch (from the lower/right) 
    and put it in the holder (in the middle). Take the matches 
    from the upper/left, then use them on the torch to light 
    Pick up the four rings here, and attach them to the four 
    chains. Each chain is underneath a symbol, such as diamond, 
    triangle, circle, and square. According to the exit door, 
    you must pull the rings in this order: diamond, circle, 
    triangle, square.
    The exit door opens, leading you to the Basilica of Saint 
    Mark (also called Marcus or Marco, depending on which 
    language you're speaking).
    Basilica San Marco
    The three statues here have been defaced. Find the cross, 
    baby Jesus and sword. Give the baby to the Virgin Mary (on 
    the left), the cross to Jesus (in the middle) and the sword 
    to Saint George (on the right).
    Repairing the statues causes a panel on the left to open. 
    Find the four keys and put them in the panel. The panel 
    opens up. Check inside the panel for a small plaque in 
    Chinese which reads "The Forbidden City".

    Dragon Pavilion
    The clue mentions a dragon's twin, but there is only one 
    dragon here. Find all four parts of the dragon. These are 
    all designs, painted on various places.
    On the left, there is a pagoda with a dragon outline on 
    top. Put the four dragon pieces there. A rock opens up. 
    Look inside to find a scroll with the word "Empress" 
    written on it.
    Empress Rooms
    The clue here is straightforward. Make some tea!
    Find the teapot and put it on the warmer. Then find the 
    five leaves and put them in the teapot. Find the spoon and 
    put it in the teapot, too.
    Find the teacup and use it on the teapot. Use the teacup on 
    the Buddha statue on the left. This opens the cabinet below 
    Buddha. Take the white lotus inside. Charleston discovers 
    that White Lotus is a school of martial arts here.
    White Lotus School
    You must master seven weapons here. Pick up each weapon and 
    use it on the practice dummy, in the middle of the room. 
    Every time you use a weapon, the dummy rises from the floor 
    a bit.
    Once you've used all seven weapons on the dummy, examine 
    the bottom of it. Inside is a statuette of an Emperor.
    Emperor's Hall
    The lampions need to be lit, but they're high up in the 
    air. Find the pole, yarn and candleholder. Zoe puts them 
    together and gets a makeshift lighting pole. Light the pole 
    on the steaming pot, then use it to light the lampions.
    The letters are not very clear. Take the carpet (on the 
    right, behind the Buddha statue), then use the carpet on 
    the wall so the symbols from the lampions are more 
    distinct. Charles tells you that they mean "Tower of

    Tower of London
    The throne seems to be missing some parts. There is a 
    display of what the throne should look like, but it's not 
    working. Find the power connector (right of the display) 
    and use it on the cord.
    Open up the display on the left. It needs a bulb. Take the 
    bulb from the lower/right part of the screen and use it on 
    the display. Press the switch to turn it on.
    Find the missing items: three gems, a gold wreath, a crown 
    and a pillow. Use them all on the throne; the gems are on 
    the bottom, the crown on top, the pillow on the seat and 
    the wreath on the back. You want to make the throne match 
    the display in the lower/left.
    A secret compartment opens under the throne. Examine it to 
    find a crown. British kings are crowned at Westminster 
    Abbey, so that's our next location.
    Westminster Abbey
    According to the clue (and the picture in the book), Zoe 
    needs to make a stained glass window design, like the one 
    on the left. Find all three pieces of stained glass, then 
    find lead solder and a blowtorch.
    Put the stained glass design on the window. This lights up 
    a compartment on the floor. Open it to find a clue about 
    four quills. Find all four quills and click on them to open 
    a secret passageway to Buckingham Palace.
    Buckingham Palace
    Find the candle and put it in the candleholder on the wall. 
    Take the matches (on a painting on the wall) and use them 
    on the candle to light it.
    Light from the candle hits the mirror. Click on all the 
    mirrors here to adjust them, so the light reflects off of 
    them. The light ends up on a pedestal. Click the pedestal. 
    Zoe presses a button on it.
    A secret compartment on the wall opens. Zoe sure does find 
    a lot of secret compartments, doesn't she? Look inside for 
    a watch clue, which mentions Little Ben's brother. That 
    must be Big Ben!
    Under Big Ben
    The picture in the Book of Legends mentions light, so find 
    all four torches here and put them in the four torch 
    holders. The torches light up themselves and open a keyhole 
    on the floor.
    Find the key, which is behind a box on the left. Use it on 
    the keyhole to open the door to the Mason's Parliament. 
    Find all three documents in this area, which were part of a 
    speech in the Parliament.
    Get the coal from the lower/right and get the file near the 
    wooden box. Zoe uses them to get charcoal on the paper, so 
    she can read the letters. It contains a clue, leading to 
    the Smithsonian in Washington DC.
