A. Introduction:

This is the first guide I have written (Well 3rd actually, 
but 1 and 2 weren't accepted because they were bad), 
and it may be the last, but we'll see.  This FAQ is NOT 
the full guide to completing the game, but instead it 
teaches you of other things, those include Boss Beating 
Tactics, Archive entries, Creature Guide, Weapons Guide 
and an Items Guide and the first place you can locate 
them. Example, "You first find [Name of item/weapon here]
in the [Place here]."

I am planning on writing the FAQ on how to complete the 
game soon, but after I finish my other one for the game 
"Big Mutha Truckers" which I started one night on scraps 
of paper.

If you wish to contact me to ask questions etc., use my

C. FAQ Version:

VERSION = 0.5, August 28, 2004

Began writing the guide. Table of Contents, Introduction and
Weapons and Item section done except from a few blank spaces
where I have forgotten where somethings are. Some Bosses not 
D. Weapons Guide
    I. Revolver

Though seldom used inside the penitentiary walls, all Abott
COs are issused .357 revolvers for use in emergency 
situations. Note on use of revolvers: the recent popularity
of Hong Kong action films has led to the common 
misconception that firing two pistols at once is "cool." 
In reality, doing so is not really practical unless you are
a highly trained weapons expert. At the very least, using 
two revolvers at once will result in a significant losss of

Location: You will find a guard with a revolver bursting 
out the first toilets you see on Chapter 1. Kill him and
take it, if you want to be bad, or be good and do as he 
says. When he says "Stay Here", follow him and take it 
from his dead body when it's safe.

My Rating: You'll use this gun the most since you'll pick
up loads of ammo for it. It's packs a decent punch for 
taking down enemies, and has fast reload times. Also the 
dual revolver feature will keep monsters at a distance.

   II. Thompson Sub-machine Gun (A.K.A "The Tommy Gun")

This weapon is most commonly used by COs positioned in guard
towers. It's spread and continuous rate of fire is quite 
effective at stopping escaping inmates.

Location: Found at the top of the stairs near a small office
where Torque gets a flashback of the Colonel shouting at a 

My Rating: Good for mowing down wave after wave of slayers
and mainliners. You'll be using this until it runs out of
  III. Pump Action Shotgun

This weapon is primarily used for crowd control in riot 
situations. Officialy, COs are advised to use rubber 
buckshot to prevent the inadvertent loss of life from use of
the shotgun. However, it is tactitly understood that most 
officers keep their shotguns loaded with something 
considerably more deadly.

Location: [UPDATE LATER]

My Rating: Can kill most creatures in one blast, but at 
point blank range only. At a distance, the spread of the 
pellets does nothing to creature... You'll need this one in
your inventory, just to feel safe.
   VI. Inmate Made Weapons

You'll find the inmates are dangerously resourceful when it
comes to making weapons. The "shiv" or "shank" is slang for
any inmate-bladed weapon. Inmates who are interested in 
doing considerably more damage have been known to make 
"Molotov cocktails" out of glass bottles filled with 
flammable fluids. Extremely anti-social inmates have been
known to construct far more deadly weapons, so be prepared
for the worst.

Location: The "shiv" is the first weapon you have to 
collect. You find it in "Goose's" cell in your cell block.

My Rating: *Ahem* As soon as you pick up your first gun, 
this one will just sit and do nothing. Not that effective
except to smash some crates, but you could just shoot them
to save time.

    V. Relics

Carnate Island has a long and troubled past, and from time 
to time inmates have managed to dig up some old relics and 
use them to wreak havoc. If you stumble upon any of these
dangerous items, be sure to notify your superior immediately
so they can be properly disposed of.

Location: [UPDATE LATER]

My Rating: I have never, ever, found a relic....or at least 
I don't think I have. So I can't rate anything.

   VI. TNT

Abbot was built out of rocks from the Carnate Quarry, where
TNT was used extensively.

Location: I believe you will first find this in the quarry.

My Rating: Brilliant, can take out whole groups of 
creatures instantly. And one of the ways to kill a Fester..

  VII. Shrapnel Grenades

These "pineapple" style grenades date back to WWII when 
Fort Maleson was based on the island. These grenades are 
old and extremely dangerous, so if found, do not attempt to
pick them up.

Location: [UPDATE LATER]

My Rating: You may not use these because of the blast 
radius, but still good to kill creatures in groups.

 VIII. Browning M2

Another relic of Fort Maleson is the extremely powerful 
Browning M2 tripod-mounted machine gun. Particularly 
reckless COs have been known to use these for target 
practise. As a direct result, these officers are no longer 
employed by the DOC. (Department of Corrections)

Location: You'll find this during "Abbott Prison Blues", 
two prisoners are hung upside before being blasted by one.
Kill the operator of it and take control.

My Rating: The best weapon to have...'cept one thing, it's
unmovable, so you can't take it with you. But it rips 
through all the creatures without you even breaking into a
sweat. Best weapon in my opinion.

   IX. 'The Gonzo Gun'


Location: [UPDATE LATER]


    X. 'The Flamethrower'

You can not pick this gun up straight forward, you must 
assemble it yourself from pieces around the Island.

Locations of pieces: [UPDATE LATER]

My Rating: Great weapon, can dispact of all enemies with 
ease. A must have to kick ass.


E. Items Guide

    I. Flashlight

The clip-on flashlight is standard issue to all Abott COs. 
Be sure to monitor your battery usage keep spare batteries 
on hand. There have been many staff complaints that it does
not look "cool" to clip the belt to your shirt, but the 
attachable nature of the light allows you to illuminate an 
area while keeping your hands free for handling weapons.

Location: You'll find this in "The Break Room" during the 
first level.

My Rating: You'll need this 100% of the way, since turning 
it off takes time. Plus it won't run out because you have
way too many batteries.

    II. Xombium

Studies have shown that working in a maximum security 
penitentiary is one of the most stressful and emotionally 
challenging jobs in America. For this reason, the DOC 
(Department of Corrections) issues Xombium to keep COs at
their best. If you're ever feeling overwelmed or just a 
bit down, don't hesitate to pop a few of these.

Location: In the cells at your cell block, open the doors
by pressing the button in the Control Station.

My Rating: The only way to cure/heal yourself in the game, 
and so are very important to completing "The Suffering."

   III. Maps

For the newjack CO, maps are essential for finding your way
around Abott.

Locations: In the Control Station in your cell block.

My Rating: Nice concept and idea, but you won't use them 
since the game is very lineal and you'll find your own way.

    IV. Paperwork

Paperwork is a large part of your job as a CO. Do it right
the first time or the warden will make sure you do it 

Locations: Scattered around the Island.

My Rating: Again, nice concept and idea of telling stories 
via notes and letters. Not needed really, but helps you 
make your own conclusions about the game.

      V. Flares

Ideal for night use, these flares will keep an area 
illuminated for 15-30 seconds.

Locations: Any supply stash will have theses lying around.

My Rating: Equiping these take too long, so you're most 
likely going to rely on your flashlight. So be a man! 
And charge into the shadows!

     VI. Flash/Bang Grenades

Flash/Bang grenades do little lasting damage, but do 
temporaily blind and deafen everyone within a thirty foot 
radius. There are an essential part of crowd control during
riot situations.

Locations: Like the flares, you'll find these in supplies 
stashes everywhere.

My Rating: You won't need these as much because you'll 
forget most likely, as you'd rather keep your finger on the
trigger then stop. But good for somethings like the really
dark places in which you dare not venture...

F. Creature/Enemy Guide

      I. COs

The COs are the people who aren't afraid to shoot you, but
some of them are nice and would like you to help them. But
if they're shooting at you first, make sure you shoot back. 
They were their Guards Uniform through out, and usually 
armed with revolvers, and some with a Tommy Gun or two.

Location: You'll find your first dangerous COs on a guard 
tower during "Abbott Prison Blues"

Techniques on beating: Shoot to kill. Simple.

My Rating: Just another human, no real threat so don't be 
too afraid to just charge into battle with them.

     II. Other Inmates

These guys are as afraid as you are, and you will only 
fight them once, well, twice really but he is nice and you
 can work with him later on in the game. 
They are either armed with guns, or shivs.

Location: In a rec yard, during the level "Abbott Prison 

Techniques on beating: Shoot to kill....again.

My Rating: Like COs, they're just humans, and no threat to

    III. Slayers

The first monster you come across, and are easy to beat. 
These guys have no  arms, or legs, but instead, sharp and
deadly blades. They're fast, they're dangerous, and they can
do kick-ass backflips.

Location: You'll see these in the opening cutscene, but will
face him as he kills a guard who crawls away from his with
his life. He comes out the toilet where you meet the guard
with the gun.

Techniques on beating: Shoot off their heads to make it 
harder for them to find you. Then blast them in the torso til
they go down. Sometimes they shield themselves with their 
blades, just shoot them in the legs instead. Later on in the
game, after the level "Hate The Sin, Not The Sinner" they 
begin to regenerate and come back to life thanks to the good
Dr. Killjoy. Way to stop them from coming back to life, 
blast their heads off.

My Rating: They're just regular monsters that pop up all the
time. Not really scary after a while because they're too damn

     IV. Marksmen

These guys look hard to bring down, as they're large, tall 
and bare some 6 or so rifles on their backs. If they see you,
they will kneel down and let rip with the guns. Other notable
features are the blindfolds round their eyes, and they are 
also quite slow due to their size.

Location: You'll see this big man executing a CO tied to a 
post and blindfolded during "Descending"

Techniques on beating: Shoot...and don't stop. Their heads
can come off with a well placed shot so make sure you place
it. They're easy to defeat with a gun.

My Rating: Nice design of creature, the blindfold, the pole
it is chained to when it appears, and the rifles on it's 
back are brilliant.

      V. Mainliners

These creatures crawl along the ground and are a living 
festation of lethal injection needles, as they're covered 
with them, sticking out their backs, through their eyes, and
all over the arms and legs of the creature. They appear out 
of puddles in the ground, usually blood and water.

Location: "Abott Prison Blues", Dallas will look at a puddle
of bloon in, T Block I think and a Mainliner lunges out.

Techniques on beating: Blast them, no other strategy to it. 
But they do have a trick up their sleeves, that being when 
they jump and climb on to you trying to jab a needle in your
neck. If they do this, trigger-mash L to throw them 

My Rating: One of my favorite of creatures because of the 
design. If you're faced in a group of them, they're a good 

     VI. Nooseman

A creature who hangs by a noose, only his upper body 
remains, and can surprise you very easily.

Location: [UPDATE LATER]

Techniques on beating: They appear where they are is a pool
of blood on the ceiling, they drop from this and try to 
strangle you. Shoot the ones that drop in front of you, or
better yet try to avoid the patches of blood on the roof, 
that way you are not left...."Hanging around"...

My Rating: Very annoying, and can't do any damage if you 
avoid them. Not that great an enemy.

     VII. Burrowers

Think of these people as the creatures from the film 
"Tremors." They burrow under the ground, move under the 
ground, and leap up when they think they have you. They're
easy to spot because of the Earth moves above them leaving
a trail as they move about.

Location: These will "Pop up" inside the quarry in 
"Darkest Night, Eternal Blight" where a guard tells Torque
to be quiet and not move.

Techniques on beating: If you keep moving, they'll just 
follow you underground and won't pop up, so stand still
and let rip with a shotgun when he pops up right next to 
your face, killing him instantly.

My Rating: Easy to kill, you won't worry about these people
to much but they still can prove a problem when you're 
facing a whole group of them as they sneak behind you as 
you try to kill one in front.

     VIII. Festers

These are creatures that are not harmed by bullets, and 
they emerge from the depths of the sea surrounding Carnate,
and more importantly, come from the wreck of a slave ship. 
Your ally, the inmate Clem who's journal you own, helps you
if you help him. He's a good fighter, but may blow you up 
if you get in his way.

Location: You'll fight them on the beaches!....during 
"Dancing At The Dawn Of Apocalypse"

Techniques on beating: Fire....and lots of it. Keep at a 
distance, that way you'll just need to throw grenades and
Molotov Cocktails. They are slow so just get back and 
throw. One explosion and they're down.

My Rating: A great creature because of it's resistance to
bullets, so it helps trigger-happy gamers think before they

       IX. Inferna

These will scare you, the thought of a little girl who's 
been dead for a long who walks in a white dress talking 
about witches before randomly exploding into a ball of 
flames and chases you did slighty startle me.

Location: When you climb out of the basement of the 
lighthouse during the well named "And A Child Shall Lead 
Them" you'll be greeted with them.

Techniques on beating: These are hard to beat, because 
they're way too fast and hard to see in the trail of flames
they leave. Instead of following Inferna with your 
crosshairs, aim ahead of her and fire with a weapon such 
as a Tommy Gun. When she does die, or fall into a pile of 
ashes, shoot the pile, as like the slayers, they will 

My Rating: A scary monster because of the lack of gore,
just a small 13 year old girl who walks around in a white
robe who bursts into flames. The Best Common Enemy in my 

        X. Hermes

Hermes is the ghostly gas of the old executioner, Hermes 
Haight. Who took his own life in the gas chamber, "Just to
smell the gas", he says. You'll meet him alot in the game,
where he likes to taunt you all the time.

Location: In the basement of the Lighthouse.

Techniques on beating: Inorder to beat him, you must turn
off all the valves that are pumping out gas. So run to each
corner and turn them off. Once that is done, run to where 
there is a pulley and shoot the board that holds the rope 
in place. Close the one on the left hand side of the room
by pressing Action. Push the large crate over one of the 
vents, and finnaly shoot the crates of dynamites at the 
back of one of the open vents. Now begin cranking the 
valve in the centre of the room to blast Hermes inside the 
furnace. Close the door and you've beaten him.

My Rating: A very creepy boss, mainly due to the accent 
and the way to says things. The gas form  makes him seem 
even more freaky, as you can only imagine where he 
appears. A very, very decent boss.
       XI. Horace

Horace is the man who was sent to Death by means of 
electricution for slicing his wife up whle she visited him
in prison. He felt like she would not be faithful and he 
was saving her from herself. He haunts Abbott with his 
electricity and ghost.

Location: In the Electric Chair Room.

Techniques on beating: 

My Rating: Creepy....misunderstood....and a complete mirror
image of "Nice Guy Eddie" from "Reservoir Dogs," from his
voice, his everything. He's not really an enemy
because he does infact help you, he's still creepy if he was
against you.
      XII. Dr. Killjoy

Location: In his operating room at the Mental Institute.

Techniques on beating: Quickly deal with the slayers and
blast out the projectors on the sides round the lab. 
Shoot the slayers again, and then blast out the rope/pulley
thing attacted to the wall to drop the cage with the projector
in it, or just shoot it through the bars.
Now finally, look up to see the final projector, behind bullet
proof-glass, either throw a stick or two of TNT up their, or 
just blast the power box that's below the platform on the 
ground floor. 

My Rating: It's hard to tell whether he's good, or bad. He
does want to help Torque...but with strange methods. He will
scare you, purely because he's a projected image...that can
do some creepy-ass things (Mainly lethaly injecting an imate
and then stabbing him to death...nice eh?). But yes, he is 
one of the best villians in Video-gaming history.
     XIII. Torque in Monster Form

You've seen this guy run around the prison block (Trivia:
He was the monster that cut your cell door open at the 
start of the game) He's your alter-ego, and you get to control
him during the game. 

Location: At the docks on the last chapter.

Techniques on beating: Shoot....over...and over. There is a
gun-turret on top of some crates in one of the small pens.
Climb up here and and he won't beable to touch you. Use the 
gun and blast him til he goes down.

My Rating: A scary monster that will charge at you, blade
shining. He's not 'the' scariest of monsters but he is does
pack a punch enough to scare you into not going into the 
shadows....dare to follow him? I wouldn't.
       XIV. Torque in Human Form

This is human form, quick, strong...and basically,

Location: At the docks on the last chapter.

Techniques on beating: Use monster Torque to kill him, as
bullets will only cause a "Bad Teddy Bear" to flash on screen.
That and the fact that bullets can't harm him. 

My Rating: A lot of video-games today have charcters up against
themselves: Torque vs. Torque, Max Payne vs. Max Payne....
which is a brilliant idea, facing a man (or women) against
themselves. It's a great concept and it works great here.
So does this mean Torque really is a monster?
        XV. Torque in Final Form

Big....bad...and an ass. Put that togeather and you get this
guy. If you thought Festers were bad....just imagine around
50 or more of them, all rolled into one big one. With energy
bolts blasting from his hands and a miniture Torque swinging
around his waist.

Location: At the docks on the last chapter.

Techniques on beating: Lower Dr Killjoy's device and use the
power blast type things. Try to aim at the large "Button" type
thing in the center of his chest. Repeat over and over to win.

My Rating: Pure evil. A mad, mad creature who will most likely
make you want to sit in the corner, cry and rock slowly 
backwards and forwards. You will love this creature, and hate
him. One hell of a monster, and one hell of a final boss.
G. Ending Information:

As you play The Suffering, you will notice you have choices 
on what to do,either good or bad. Now what path you choose 
to play, will result in differentgame endings. This not only
gives you replay-ability, but a much closer look into the 
mind of Torque.

The Good Ending:

The name doesn't do anything for you, as you'd expect it to
be good as in as a
happy ending.....
In this ending, Torque's Family are murdered by a group of 
killers....and so Torque ends up looking like the killer 
and is sent to Abbott.

The Bad Ending:

This is the bad this, you are the killer and 
you kill your wife and kids yourself.
You get sent to Abbott for killing everyone, great job!.

The Ugly Ending:

The ugly ending. You get angry and push your wife, she 
accidently cracks her skull open on a cupboard. Your son, sees
this and runs to drown his brother, before finally jumping
to his death from his bedroom window. 

You get blamed and sent to Abbott.

[You can find a list of the Good-Bad choices in the game 
in the other FAQ I'm writing for The Suffering.]
H. Unlockables:

These are things that are unlocked throughout the game.

         I. Clem's Archive

Clem's Archive helps Torque understand about a monster that 
appears in the game, all thanks to the inmate Clem who has 
seen everyone, and knows the history of Abbott, 'oh so well.
Page 1. (Introduction)

Contained in these pages are my observations of the bizarre 
creatures that have appeared on Carnate Island since the 
cataclysm struck. The creatures emerge in a variety of ways,
but many of them appear to come from within the island 
itself, as if the very earth of Carnate were poisonous and
vile. Though I scarcely have the time to keep a journal like
this while trying to keep myself alive, my inquisitive nature
forces me to write down what I see in the hope that I might 
better understand it. But how can this unspeakable horror
possibly be understood? It is as if Carnate's horrific sins,
both past and present, are being brought to life in a pageant
of death.

Page 2. (Slayer)

I first witnessed these creatures jumping out of the ground 
itself. Their heads are detached from their torso, held 
aloft by hideous contraptions.Their limbs have been replaced
by blades of the sharpest steel. To my eyes, they appear to 
be a manifestation of decapitation, yet it seems improbable
anyone ever had their head chopped off in Abbott. I suppose
on Carnate anything is possible. I have dubbed these 
monstrosities Slayers.

Page 3. (Marksman)

Based on the battery of rifles attached to its back and the 
blindfold around it's head, this marksman appears to be the 
reincarnation of a military firing squad. Abbott was 
originally a POW camp during WWII, so it seems likely they 
would have had executions of that sort. Indeed, there are 
stories of a rouge colonel who was to be court marshaled, 
but instead took his own life. Perhaps he is connected to 
these abominations.

Page 4. (Mainliner)

In the 1970s, Lethal Injection was introduced as the most 
"humane" means of state-sanctioned killing. To date, 25 such
procedures have taken place in Abbott. This creature -I call
him the Mainliner- appears to suffer with every move he makes,
perhaps the mixture of Sodium Pentothal Pancuronium Bromide, 
and Potassium Chlorine in his veins is not to his liking. 
The numerous needles jabbed into his body cannot help his 

Page 5. (Nooseman)

Not only is this Nooseman dead from being hung by the neck, 
but also appears to have had his skin removed. I wonder if 
these creatures are tied to the legendary story of the 
inmates who, outraged about the death of fellow workers in a
quarry mining accident, hung and skinned five COs. The 
Noosemen are more supernatural than many of their brethren, 
ripping themselves straight out of the ceiling in some 
entirely impossible manner.

Page 6. (Burrower)

These Burrowers are some of the most lethal creatures I 
have encountered, primarily due to their ability to spring 
forth from the ground itself and justas quickly re-submerge.
They are closely tied to the very soil of Carnate, A theme 
among these monstrosities. Its appearance is of a human body
tied up in a gunny sack and constrained by leather straps, 
with deadly steal chains attached at various locations. I 
believe they represent those buried alive.

Page 7. (Fester)

Continually emerging from the slave ship, these are the 
festering creatures who foil my attempts to escape this 
confounded rock. Rats live within their flesh, writhing 
within it and then springing forth randomly. They appear to
be a reincarnation, not of the slaves - for then they would
be of darker skin tone, but instead of the slave traders. 
In this form, they are forced to live out again and again 
the fate they forced upon those hapless slaves.

This is an ugly ending, as the death of Torque's family is 
purely accidental...well, killing the wife was an accident, 
but one of the sons saw the dead body and killed his brother
and himself.....Torque gets sent to Abbott.

Page 8. (Inferna)

From what I have witnessed, this manifestation of evil 
appears to have two distinct forms: the first, a young girl
in Puritan dress, perhaps 13 years of age. This transforms 
into an altogether more disturbing flaming creature. Both 
clutch a small hand-made doll. To my mind there is no doubt
that these creatures are tied to the three young girls who 
made witchcraft accusations in the late 1600s and lead to 
the incendiary death of 11 innocents.

Page 9. (Dr. Killjoy)

One of Abbott's most persistent legends tells of Dr. 
Killjoy, the quite insane psychiatrist/surgeon who ran an
asylum on Carnate. Doing research of my own, I found that he
did indeed exist, though which stories are true and which are 
fabrication is anyone's guess. Since the cataclysm, I have 
three times seen a surgeon formed of pure light, 
reminiscent of 16mm film projection come to life. Could this
be the fine doctor?

Page 10. (Horace)

Many inmates break once inside Abbott. But none have snapped
more than Horace Gauge who, the tale goes, became convinced
his wife wasn't safe without his protection and sliced her to
ribbons during a conjugal visit. He ended up in the mercy 
chair, electrocuted by Abbott's then executioner, Hermes 
Haight. For years inmates have said he haunts Abbott, and I
believe I saw him ten minutes ago. I surely wish I had not.

Page 11. (Hermes)

Since the cataclysm I have several times found myself 
mysteriously surrounded by noxious green fumes. I have fled 
in each case, and I think if I had not, I might not be alive
to write this now. Within the gas I have seen a humanoid who
seemed to take great joy in the prospect of my death. Could
this be Hermes, Abbott's resident executioner for several 
decades? If I recall, he took his own life in the gas chamber.

Page 12. (Un-named)

I only briefly saw this enormous creature a single time, 
near the docks. I cannot even begin to describe him, save for 
one thing, he seems to be quite literally connected to an 
inmate, the convicted killer Torque. Incredible as it may 
sound, this creature appears to have a miniature version of 
Torque attached to him via a long umbilicus beyond that, I 
can only say that I view him as the most evil of all the 
creatures, a pure manifestation of fury and evil.

Page 13. (???)


Page 14. (Torque)

Since the cataclysm I have seen the death of many inmates, 
but one seems to be a unstoppable survivor. I have seen him 
take out packs of marksmen and slayers without even 
breathing hard. Torque is an inmate of some ill-repute, 
having been sentenced to die for the killing of his ex-wife 
and children. Of course, being convicted and being guilty 
aretwo different things. Perhaps he will save us all, but I 
feel certain he will at least save himself.

        II. Consuela's Journal

This journal helps you understand about the history of the 
Island. Dating back 
to the 1600's to the 1900's. You have Consuela, Ernesto the 
COs wife to thank for writing this information....

Page 1. (Introduction)

When Ernesto took his job at Abbott, I was far from excited.
When he told me we would need to move to Carnate Island as 
well, I was not happy at all. But I tried to find a good 
side to the situation: I have always been interested in the
history of unique places. What kind of history would we find
on Carnate? This scrapbook project was started primarily to
fill my time here, but also so I could record what I had 
discovered. In my exploration of the island, I uncovered 
many of Carnate's secrets. Though I record them here, I do 
not think I will tell them world about what I have found: 
Carnate is a place whose secrets are best kept to itself.

Page 2. (The Island)

Carnate Island is approximately three miles wide, and lies
some ten miles off the coast of Maryland. In addition to 
man-made structures, Carnate is also home to a labyrinthine
natural cave system unlike anything I have seen before. 
Through my studies I learned of the island's dark and 
unsettling history. Though it may sound ridiculous to say 
it, Carnate seems to bring out the worst in those who make 
the mistake of coming here.

Page 3. (Abbott State Penitentiary)

Originally built as a part of Fort Maleson to house German
POWs during WWII, it was taken over by Maryland following 
the war, and converted into Abbott State Penitentiary. 
Mostly built out of local quarry rock, the prison is now 
home to nearly 1000 inmates, and has the worst safety 
record and highest homicide rate of any prison in the 
Maryland Department of Corrections system. The state also
carries out the majority of it's death sentences here.

Page 4. (The Death House)

The most ominous structure inside of Abbott is the death 
house. Electrocution,gas, and lethal injection have all 
been used within its walls, though only the last is still
used today. The Death House is also the prison's oldest 
structure, built as the administration building when the 
prison was a POW camp.It's basement was also built during
the war and in it you can still see relics of that time. 
The basement has been closed off for twenty years.

Page 5. (Prison Cemetery)

When an inmate dies and his family does not claim the 
body, he is buried here.The cemetery is named after the 
infamous corrections officer Hermes T. Haight. He was in 
charge of executions for several decades, before finally 
killing himself in the gas chamber. Also buried here is 
notorious inmate Horace Gauge who savagely killed his 
wife on a conjugal visit. To me, the cemetery is the 
most bleak and depressing place on all of Carnate.

Page 6. (The Quarry)

At the same time the prison started operation, digging 
commenced at Carnate Quarry. Prisoners were forced to 
work this quarry for twelve hours a day, cutting the rock
that would be used to build the prison walls. Work 
conditions in the quarry were far from ideal. Inmates 
who complained were severely disciplined. Carnate 
Quarry has not been in use since the 1960s, with its 
mining equipment simply abandoned where it stood to 
rust and collapse.

Page 7. (Quarry Cave In)

At some point in the mid-50s, weak mine shaft support 
beams gave way and trapped a number of quarry workers 
under several tons of rubble. The official story was that
the prisoners were killed instantly. Other inmates 
maintained that the workers survived the collapse, but 
no attempt was made to rescue them.
The inmates were so enraged they revolted against the COs
and lynched five of them. What really happened may never 
be known.

Page 8. (The Asylum)

On the far western edge of Carnate stands an old Victorian
home built in 1877. In 1899, the home was converted into 
the oddly titled Carnate Institution for the Alienated. The
small institution was run by one Dr.Killjoy whose methods 
were far from conventional and often tragically lethal. 
What exactly happened to Dr.Killjoy is unknown, but the 
asylum was abandoned in the 1930s, and has been uninhabited
ever since.

Page 9. (Burned House)

Though I know little about this site, these ruins of an old 
home are oddly fascinating to me. The small house appears to
be from the mid-19th century, and I would say it certainly 
predates the Asylum. Nearby is an old, abandoned well that 
seems to be especially deep. Since the house burned down, one
cannot help but wonder if Carnate itself was trying to drive 
away the people who lived inside it. If one chooses to believe
in such things.

Page 10. (Slave Shipwreck)

On the northwestern beach of the island is a massive shipwreck
from the early 18th century. The ship carried a cargo of 
slaves, and was en route to Norfolk when it was knocked off 
course and crashed. Apparently the traders feared releasing the
slaves they carried, and instead left them trapped in the hull, 
where they were slowly eaten by rats. How the ship has survived
the elements nearly three centuries is certainly a mystery.

Page 11. (The Bluff)

On the south side of the island, near Fort Maleson there is a 
bluff which appears to have been forgotten since the 1940s. 
Along the ocean side of the bluff are three wood posts riddled
with bullets, to which dead bodies are still attached. This 
seems to be the site of the little-known 1944 execution of 
three American soldiers. Executed on suspicion of treason, no 
actual evidence of wrong-doing was ever found.

Page 12. (Crashed Plane)

This bizarre relic is a Horton 229-A1, an experimental plane 
developed by the Germans during the latter stages of WWII. It 
crashed on Carnate in 1944, to the great distress of the fort's
Colonel. Taking his cue from the Japanese internment camps of 
the West, the colonel wanted to root out the traitors he 
suspected had led the plane to Carnate. He executed three of 
his own men who happened to be of German ancestry, but who were
almost certainly innocent. Why the plane actually crashed here 
remains a mystery.

Page 13. ( World War II Fort)

Built in 1942, Fort Maleson served as both coastal defense 
facility and POW camp. The fort had some 250 men, and held 
approximately 1000 prisoners. The fort's most notorious story 
is of its colonel who executed three of his men for treason 
because a German airplane crashed on the island. A subsequent 
court martial found no evidence to justify these executions, 
and the colonel ended up taking his own life.

Page 14. (Old Cemetery)

This cemetery is home to the remains of elevan Puritans who 
were accused of witchcraft and burned at the stake in 1681. 
Witch burning was all but unheard of on this continent, with
other supposed witches, such as those in Salem, having met 
their demise at the end of a rope. It appears that hanging was
not enough for the residents of Goodsmouth, no doubt because 
Carnate Island is a place that drives people to extremes.

Page 15. (Burning Site)

In the 17th century, Carnate was home to a small Puritan 
village named Goodsmouth. In 1681, for unknown reasons, a 13
year old girl accused several townsfolk of witchcraft. Joined 
by two close friends of hers, the trio formed an unholy 
alliance which led to the burning of eleven people, all of 
whom are interred nearby. Shortly thereafter, the girls 
mysteriously disappeared. This is the place where those 
terrible burnings occurred.

Page 16. (The Lighthouse)

The lighthouse is the oldest standing structure on Carnate 
Island. Its corner stone states that its date of 
construction as 1834. The light was origianlly oil 
powered, but since the 1950s has ran off of a nearby 
generator. Similarly, the lighthouse's rotation was 
originally powered by a system of gears that would 
periodically need to be re-cranked. To this day, when
the power goes off, the motion needs to be re-started
by hand cranking.

Page 17. (The Town)

Built on the site of the Puritan village of Goodsmouth, 
this town is home to nearly thirty corrections officers 
and their families. It has a single dilapidated general
store, a small overgrown park, and a church that, for as
long as anyone can remember, has had no minister. It is
generally agreed that no-one would live in this 
depressing place were it not for the daunting distance 
back to the mainland and lack of ferry service.

Page 18. (The Docks)

The only functional dock remaining on Carnate, this is the 
sole point of entry for inmates and their visitors, as well 
as corrections officers and those of us who happen to be 
married to them. I remember the first day I came to Carnate,
it was raining in sheets, and the ship had trouble docking. 
I remember thinking the island didn't want us coming here. 
I've long thought it would have been better if we turned 
back then.
 III. Chapter 0 : Waiting to Die

This is the original starting level, but was taken out 
during development. It becomes playable after completing the
game once on any difficulty. Basically it is where Torque is
taken out of the boat and has to wait in a pen for the 
Prison Bus to come pick them up.

Easter Egg:

There are 3 convicts standing in the corner of the pen, and 
during the level a crow will land next to them. If you stand
on the crow, you'll be wearing a cowboy hat and hear the 
Director of the game tell you about the level.
