    Well after about a year of pondering about returning to FAQ writing
    I have decided I'd come back under a new alias. I have decided I 
    will write once more, and hopefully I will first fix up my rather
    newbish FAQs that I did when I was just beginning. Well here is
    my first FAQ to be redone, ENJOY!  - Formerly NEMESISERA

                  ~~>i. Introduction to Phantasmagoria<~~
    I purchased Phantasmagoria about a year after it was released. I was
    extremely impressed with the graphics and audio effects. At the 
    time of its release in 1995 a typical PC user was running a 486DX, 
    which now-a-days is rather pathetic, but even now Phantasmagorias
    graphics are great, it includes a variety of FMV (Full Motion
    Videos) to keep you entertained.
    When Phantasmagoria was released, it went beyond the boundries
    of any typical violent game of its time. Censorship issues 
    arrose all over the place, about weither this game should even
    be allowed to see the light of day.
    Phantasmagoria introduces us to the couple Adrienne Delaney and
    Don Delaney, which at first is a happily married couple. They 
    move into a mansion in which they have no idea of the history
    the house possessed at one time. All is fine until Adrienne just
    gets to curious...so the saga begins....
                       ~~>1. Getting Started<~~
    Phantasmagoria is compatible with almost any PC, however in some 
    cases the setup may crash your computer, due to the fact that 
    phantasmagoria was released at the time that only Intel Processors
    were dominate. This is rather easy to over come, make sure you 
    skip all the speed tests and Phantasmagoria will run fine.
    - 486 Processor or Higher

                       5. The Story Explained
    After moving into the new estate Adrienne has a horrible dream in 
    which she is manacled to a chair and a blade is swinging towards 
    her head. She then awakens, as Don comforts her, they then make love.
    The next morning both Adrienne and Don are around the table drinking
    coffee in the kitchen. Don explains that he thinks that the second 
    floor bathroom would make a excellent darkroom for his photography.
    Adrienne states that she is just going to explore the house and see
    what it has to offer. Adrienne then unpacks a Snow Ornament that 
    reminds them of christmas when Don proposed to her. Adrienne wonders
    around the house and finds the bedroom of Carno, she lays in the bed
    and has another dream in which hands come from the bed and try to 
    grab her, but she wakes up screaming as Don comes to her aid. They 
    engage in a short conversation. Later, Adrienne discovers a locked
    door to the library, so she drives down to the town and obtains a
    key from the realtor's office. Adrienne then drives back to the 
    house and opens the library door. By accident she bumps a brick 
    loose in the fireplace and she finds that there is a secret room
    behind the fireplace. She then discovers a letter opener and removes
    the motor from the bricks and enters this room. She then goes to the
    stand north and moves the Bible off a little wooden box. Unknown to
    Adrienne when she opens the box it releases a green mist, known as
    the demon,which climbs the stairs and causes a lamp to fall over
    Don's head, which unknowningly Don is now possessed.
    The next morning Adrienne is innociently typing on her computer,
    when Don comes up the stairs shouting and demanding that she get
    his Draino cleaner he asked for yesterday. They have an arguement
    that ends with Adrienne saying she'll get the drain cleaner, and
    Don storming out of the room. She gets the drain cleaner, but Don
    is still in an uptight mood. Adrienne slowly realizes that a bump
    on the head isn't the only reason he is upset, something more 
    deeper and darker than that. Adrienne is exploring the house to
    find out what exactly is going on, while Don is constantly locked
    away in the darkroom. Later, Adrienne is brutally raped by Don, 
    and she becomes more confused by Don.
    Adrienne learns the history of the Carno Estate and the former 
    owners. The magician was intrigued by black magic and he also
    had five wifes, which most were burtally murdered by Carno 
    himself when he is possessed by the Demon. Marie, Carno's last
    wife started to believe that Carno was behind the evil of all
    his missing previous wifes, and the plots to kill Carno with 
    her lover Gaston. They planned on making sure he couldn't escape
    from his magic trick so he would die, but it ultimately ended 
    with Carno killing both Gaston, Marie and then finally killing
    himself in the process.
    Adrienne also meets new friends around town such as Harriet and 
    Cyrus. Harriet held some tarot card readings in which summons 
    the Carno spirit and he explains to her that she must destroy 
    the demon that is loose in the house. Adrienne hires Cyrus and
    Harriet to do some house choirs in the estate. Then she meets
    Malcolm which lived in the estate over 100 years ago, he explains
    what exactly happened to Carno and also explains how to get rid
    of the evil once and for all.
    Finally the door to the dark room has opened Adrienne goes into 
    the room and discovers pictures of herself all of them cut in 
    two at the head. Adrienne is shocked, then her husband appears
    behind her, he is in carno's costume and has make-up all over
    himself. Don attempts to choke Adrienne out, but she gets the
    drain cleaner and throws it in Don's face, She then grabs the
    spell book, but gets captured in the process.
    When Adrienne wakes she is in the torture chair getting shackled
    to the chair, Adrienne pulls out the snowman to Don, Don steps 
    back for a minute, Adrienne meanwhile pulls the lever to release
    the blade, which hits Don in the back and kills him. There is
    no time to cry, as the Demon then appears. Adrienne immediately
    runs away and takes the secret passage in the threatre. She
    manages to get over a big gap in the passageway by using a pipe
    above the hole. She eventually makes it to Carno's Secret 
    Place. She then recites the spell that ends up with the demon
    being sucked into the book and sealed....forever. Adrienne
    then walks out of the house with a blank look on her

    UQ = Unanswered Question
    TY = Theories
    This section includes some questions you could never have got 
    answered by playing the game, however I have my theories to these
    UQ = Why is a large human face depicted on the outside wall of the
    TY = Since Carno's estate was used for magic spells, it might just
         be a decoration for it.
    UQ = Why are the sleeping rooms so illogical, Carno and Hortencia 
         slept on the second floor, Sofia on the third floor, and Malcom
         is in the tower room. Why was the baby put on the third floor 
         instead of on the second floor?
    TY = Unknown
    UQ = Do you think that Don and Adrienne actually slept in the same 
         bed during the entire fiasco, where'd Don Sleep?
    TY = In the darkroom possibly, on the couch in the reception hall,
         or possibly in Carno's room
    UQ = How did the door on the third floor get locked from the other-
    TY = Demonic Activity
    UQ = Why doesn't Adrienne fill Don in on these discoveries?
    TY = Don didn't want to even speak to her, or she was afriad of
         him and what he may do to her.
    UQ = Where'd the new phone installation go?
    TY = Don removed it to prevent Adrienne from using it
    UQ = How did Malcolm survive in the Carnovasch Estate?
    TY = Unknown
    UQ = How does the Demon cross the hole at the end of the game?
    TY = Magic possibly

      take control of Adrienne it just simply dissappears, you can't find

      never touch the food.

      yet in normal circumstances it is about up to her calves.
    ~ Carno's jewelry box is shown next to the lamp, but in the bed scene
      in which the hands try to grab Adrienne it disappears.
    ~ When going to the realtor's office it is clearly day, but when you
      are in the office and look in the background as Adrienne talks to 
      the realtor it is black as if it is nighttime.
    ~ In chapter two, the picture of Adrienne and Don is missing from 
      the stand by the bed.
    ~ When Don is walking off after the conversation of the drain cleaner,
      he walks in the direction of the fireplace not the exit.
