 Camp:     Be outside and see that the fire is out because of the snow. A red fox runs away.

Light a campfire:     See a bird on the ground that is nearly frozen.

Take the bible from inventory and place it on the fire pit.

Take the crucifix from inventory and place it on the fire pit.

Pick up the wet firewood and place it on the fire pit.

Pan right and use the rag on the stone with etched words covered with snow.

Use a match on the stone to light it.

Place the lit match on the bible.

See Father Arno with the bird.

Father Arno is now on the train on the way back to Vladoviste. He talks about his vision and knows the first path already.


Vladoviste Day 4 continued

Talk to Luana, the Gypsy.

Go back to the Inn but Arno wants to check on Maria. There are S-like graffiti on the walls of the village.

Dispensary:    See graffiti on the wall of the clinic. Ring the bell and enter the dispensary.

Talk to Maria in the kitchen. Find out what happened after Martha died. They said farewell.

Inn:    Talk to Ozana. She wants Arno out of the Inn.

Bedroom:    Go upstairs and enter the bedroom.

Hear the phone ring. Exit and eavesdrop. It sounds like Ozana is asked if Father Arno is gone.

Open the letter on the table. It is a threatening letter that wants Father Arno away from here.

Open the packet under the letter. It is from Irina in Budapest.

Go downstairs and use the phone. Call Irina in Budapest.

Go to the train station and click on the train.


Budapest Day 5


Irina Boczow's office:    The door has been forced. Enter Irina's office.

See her with arrows on her arm joints and mouth. A syringe is on her forehead. Take the syringe.

Look close at her left hand. She wrote words with her blood: ARMA, SUNT, INDE, MALA.

Take the spool and thumbtacks from the desk.

Safe:    Open the safe. The first combination was MDCCCXX - 1820. The old combination must have been changed.  Remember the bust of Von Bergen outside the office door, he lived from 1820 to 1913.

Enter 1913 in Roman Numerals - MCMXIII.

Take the wax cylinder seen the last visit here.

Library:    Go to the hall right of the fireplace.

Check the box on the stand in a corner at left. This is the one Irina mentioned that has the rare vase of Von Bergen.

Illumination puzzle:    Look close at the text of the illumination. See 5 dials at the bottom of the frame.

Read the words of the illumination:     If you wish to contemplate a hidden, terrible and cruel beauty, yet admirable to the sight, know that the green truth maybe read in a circle which you will follow in the right direction...

To make a circle, place the thumbtacks at the period ending the middle paragraph and above the ornate line-bar. Attach thread-spool on the thumbtack.

Click move to extend the thread to length desired. Click hold turn to draw a circle.

Check the green letters (green truth), the line-perimeter of the circle touches (read in a circle) going clockwise (follow in the right direction). Right click to release the thread.

The V - i - r - g - o touches the circular line.

Enter VIRGO on the dials at the base of the frame.

The box opens. Look at the Iphigenie vase. Iphigeneia's Sacrifice is in documents. Use the enlarger to study the vase. Note that the words on the rim state: The god's altars are overflowing with blood. Black and boiling, it flows on the ground and soaks the roots of the oak tree.

Find the books that Irina wanted Arno to read:    Using the last clue Irina left, find the books using her method of cataloging. Remember that she talked about cataloging and ghosts during the last visit.

Catalogue:    Check the 3 books on her table. Check the tab on the top left side of those pages. See 4 letters written on the tabs. These tabs are the reminders of where those books are located in the library. In their place, ghosts are inserted. This is the clue on how to find the other books.

Alcove - There are 5 alcoves in the library. Each of those alcoves has a Latin sentence on the top of the entryway. The first letter of the clue word is the last letter in the Latin sentence.

Book case - Enter the specified alcove. Each book case has a Latin phrase on the top. The second letter of the clue word is the last letter in the Latin phrase.

Book shelf - Check the bookcase specified. Each book shelf has a Latin word. The third letter of the clue word is the last letter of the Latin word.

Book - Each shelf has the alphabet. The fourth letter in the clue word is the letter on the book shelf.

Click on the book found and Father Arno will read it. If it is the correct one, the book will be in documents.

Alcove   Ad astra per aspera   Felix qui potuit rerum cognoscere causas   Nil admirari   Nil Nimium. Satis est: ne sit et hoc nimium
Book case   Incerta curatio certus dolor   Mirabile visu   Nomen est omen   Acta est fabula
Book shelf   Grumium   Aldebaran   Alfard   Nibal
Book letter   A   T   E   A
Name of book   Click the empty space.   Runic Anthology   The Funeral of Patroclus   Iphigeneia's Sacrifice

There are only 3 books seen. The one at ARMA is not there and no ghost inserted. Someone stole it.

Note the white cardboard in some shelves. Those are the ghosts that mark books taken by Irinal to read or are taken out of the library.

Exit the office and go back to Vladoviste.

Runic Anthology:    Check the last page of the Runic Anthology. This is not necessary to finish the game.

The object is to place together metaphors or kennings that refer to one item. Click - hold and drop to move a kenning from one place to another. Separate each group of kennings by a break.

Thank you, Benoit!


Vladoviste Day 5

The gypsy is gone from her place.

Look around. Go to the Inn and on the way smell burning.

Go forward and talk to Ionel, the boy. The Iron Guards from Alba Iula came and painted things around the village. He also mentions that the adults think that Arno is drawing misfortune to the village.

Cemetery:    Go up to the cemetery. Enter and see the church burning.

Go forward twice and talk to the gravedigger. Talk to him twice and inquire about the Inspector that died at the crossroad. Learn that Martha's grave was defiled. Turn around and hear what the gravedigger said about Maria.

Go to Martha's mausoleum and see that it is closed.

Dispensary:    Better check on Maria. Go to the dispensary and ring the bell.

No one is home. Enter anyways. There is an odor of tobacco.

Kitchen:    Go to the kitchen. The power goes off. Take Maria's bloody shawl from the floor by the table.

Look around the kitchen. Pull back the curtain under the sink and take the funnel. Open the drawer left of the sink and take the copper wire.

Yard:    Exit through the door at the kitchen.

See Fidel, the dog. He is scared of Father Arno now.

Turn around and forward. Take the empty can by the wall. Notice the light at the cellar of the shed at right. That is where the electric control panel must be.

Shed-Morgue:    Enter the shed and see a shadow at end of the aisle. Click on the shelves left and right of the aisle.

Janos - At the end of the aisle, turn to the left, click on a coffin that is not empty. Open it and see Janos. He is not dead but can not be awakened. Check his pockets and vest.

Look at the Fox's Flight drawing hidden in his vest. It looks like part of Vlad Tepes' biography. This might be from the missing book, the one that Irina wanted Arno to read.

Take the golden key and bunch of keys from his right side pants pocket. Check the contents of the left side pants pocket. Ah - he smokes Horizont brand like the one at Vlad's prison. Look at Janos' note with numbers.

Turn around and open another coffin. The man is dead; bled dry.

Turn left and open the hatch on the floor going to the cellar.

Cellar:    Enter and go forward.

Look at the dynamo-generator. Use the empty can on the grill in front of the fuel tank. Use the funnel on the empty can. Open the fuel tank faucet. Take the oil can.

Fuse box:    Turn around. Open the fuse box on the wall. See that the fuses are broken.

There are 9 fuse slots. There are 4 blown fuses.

As a matter of convenience, the fuse locations are for:

Top from left to right:    kitchen - developing photo room - foyer

Middle from left to right:    laboratory - treatment room - Maria's bedroom

Last row:    unknown.

Only the kitchen, photo room, lab and treatment room are 'fused'.

Repair the fuses:    Be sure that the handle at the bottom of the fuse box is at the OFF position (up) or you die.

Take off the 4 broken fuses from the top and middle row and place them on the bottom row and middle or top right.

Use the copper wire on 2 of the fuse leads that you want to have power.

Let's repair the laboratory and treatment room; the left and middle fuses of the middle row. See the copper wire connect the 2 holes-leads of each fuse slot.

Pull down the handle to the ON position.

Hear the phone ring. Exit the shed.

Von Kruger:     Answer the phone at the foyer.

Von Kruger wants Father Arno to finish the analyses that Maria was doing. This will enable him to make a serum against the illness that is inflicting the village.

Exit the dispensary through the kitchen door.

See something written in Italian on the glass pane of the door. Seek the Source.

Maria's bedroom:    Go left from the shed. See pigeons on the roof. The pigeon coop is on the left. Use the gold key taken from Janos' pocket on the door of the building on the right.

Look up at the ceiling and see that there is no light bulb on the socket. No need to use a fuse for this place.

There's a nosy bird left of the door. Listen to him while looking around. Pick up the feather on the floor right of the dresser and left of the bird.

Check the magazines on the bed and the dark room at the foot of the bed. Check the dresser and note her clothes.

Dresser:    Take the empty metallic box for photographic papers and tweezers from top of the dresser.

Martha's box:    Find Martha's box at the bottom drawer. It has a lock with 4 numbers.

Look around for clues. This is Martha's room before it was Maria's.

Paintings:    Examine each of the paintings.

Remove the red cloth left of the dresser and by the wall. Take the Martha and Maria painting. Place the painting on the empty space above the dresser.

Check the St Sebastian painting from above the head of the bed. It seems that this one is not originally on this location.

Rearrange the paintings:    Remember what Martha wrote on one of her letters: To find the key, carefully observe the order of the paintings on the wall.

Place the paintings in their original locations based on the change in color of the wall.

Take the misplaced paintings off the wall by clicking on the hook. Place the painting on the empty spot on the floor by the wall where the Martha and Maria painting was kept covered.

Place the correct painting on the empty slots on the wall.

Top of the bed:    Gymnosophist

Side of bed:    St Sebastian

Left on the wall by dresser:    Funeral of Patroclus.

Right on the wall above dresser:    Martha and Maria found on the floor covered with cloth.

Examine the paintings by clicking on them. Use the enlarger-magnifying lens on the painting and note that each have references at bottom right of the frame.

Gymnosophist - A4, St Sebastian - A7, Funeral of Patroclus - B6 and Martha and Maria - AD8.

Look close at Martha's box again and enter 4 - 7- 6 - 8.

The box opens. Check the contents. See a picture of Martha disfigured by sulfuric acid September 10, 1902. Take the key with a tag labeled plot 1415.

Take acetic acid can from the box left of the dresser. Take grain from the container in front of the bird left of the door.

Exit the building.

Pigeons:    See a feeder in front of the pigeon coop. Place grain on the feeder. The pigeons on the rooftop flies down.

Check the pigeon on the left. It has a red thing on his leg. Take the Schwartz filament and Kruger's note.

Read Kruger's note. Go back to the treatment room at the dispensary.

Do Kruger's research:

Sterilize the medical equipment:    Do the same procedure as before.

Find and take a hammer and stake behind the firewood bin.

Draw fresh blood:    Kruger wants a fresh sample to test. Draw blood as before. Bottle 815 is obtained.

Place the blood in the refrigerated cabinet:   

Go to the lab through the door at right.

Padlock:    The code has been changed.

To open the lock, start with the left dial and enter one number at a time while pulling the hook in between numbers to see if it moves a bit.

Once that left number is found, do the second from left number one at a time while pulling the hook in between. If the hook moves farther; then the second number is determined.

From left to right:    Enter 1 - 0 - 4 - 2 on the line of the padlock. Pull the hook.

Place Bottle 815 on the middle shelf.

Click on 814 and Father Arno notes that his 814 looks lower than before.

Fix the apparatus:   

Battery:    Look down at the battery on the floor.

The other bulb is off. Open the panel and add the acetic acid. See the green light turns on.

Filament:    See that a filament is burned out left of the sampler on the table. We will use the filament sent by Kruger via the pigeon.

Sterilize the filament:    In the kitchen, drop the filament in the pot with water. Boil the water on the pot as done before. Take the sterilized filament.

Sampler:    Go back to the lab and place the sterilized filament on the top part of the sampler right of the refrigerated cabinet on the table.

Test the blood:    Read the Instructions on the table sent by Kruger to Maria explaining how to do the test. Be sure to read the last page.

Procedure for first parameter:

Take a sample from the refrigerated cabinet by clicking an empty tube on the bottle. Close the refrigerated cabinet.

Place the tube on the front part of the sampler.

Lower the filament into the blood in the test tube by lowering the lever left of the sampler.

Press the + button to bring the sample into the filament.

Take the filament with the sample and place it on the microscope plate at right.

Look through the eyepiece.


1. Note the % mononucleated granulocytes by clicking-lighting up the left icon on top right of the screen. The readout is above the icons.

2. Note the % polynucleated granulocytes by clicking-lighting up the right icon on top right of the screen. The readout is above the icons.

3. Note the % of total marked cells by clicking-lighting up both icons at top right of the screen. The readout is above the icons.

Procedure for second parameter:    This is explained by the last page of Kruger's instructions.

Take the filament from the microscope with the marked cells and attach it back to top of the sampler.

Lower the sampler using the lever at left.

Press the - button to eject the marked cells back in the test tube. This mixes the marked cells with the unmarked cells.

Lower the sampler using the lever at left.

Press the + button to take a sample of the mixed marked and unmarked sample.

Take the filament and place it on the microscope.

4. Note the % marked granulocytes in the mixed sample. The icons should NOT be lit up. The readout is above the icons.

Place the filament back on top of the sampler.

Lower the sampler using the lever at left.

Press the - button to eject the marked cells back in the test tube.

It is now ready for the next sample.

Interpretation:    Check the Blood Test Report papers. There are 3 results to be entered.

1. % mononuclear granulocytes on the left and % polynuclear granulocytes on the right.

These are obtained from the readout on the microscope.

2. Total granulocytes/ml of blood is obtained by calculation using the % marked granulocytes in the mixed sample.

Total granulocytes is obtained by 100 (if all are marked in #3 at the readout above) x 100 (%) divided by the % marked granulocytes in readout #4.

3. Diagnosis:

P anomaly = % mononucleated granulocytes is definitely lesser than polynucleated granulocytes.

Unknown anomaly = % mononucleated granulocytes is definitely greater than polynucleated granulocytes.

No anomaly = % mononucleated granulocytes is approximately equals to polynucleated granulocytes.

Test the donors:    Do the above procedure and reporting for 815, 814, 813, 812 and 811.

Donor   #1 Marked Mononuclear granulocytes   #2 Marked Polynuclear granulocytes   #4 Marked granulocytes (might need to repeat testing)   Total # of granulocytes/ml   Analysis
810 M. Florescu 100   0   6   1666   Unknown anomaly
811 Ionel Martiescu 46   54   10   1000   No Anomaly
812 Janos Pekmester 89   11   7   1428   Unknown anomaly
813 Stephan Luca 57   43   10   1000   No Anomaly
814 Arno Moriani 56   44   9   1111   No Anomaly
815 Arno Moriani 81   19   7   1428   Unknown anomaly

Enter result on the Blood Test Report:    Enter the numbers from the testing above in the Blood Test Report papers. If correctly done, Father Arno will say so.

If not, the #4 readout might need to be redone.

1. Fill in the #1 Marked Mononuclear granulocytes on the left line and #2 Marked Polynuclear granulocytes on the right line.

2. Fill in the calculated Total # of granulocytes/ml.

3. Fill in the analysis.

Hear someone and the door of the lab is slammed shut. Trapped.

Locked lab door:    Check the lab door. Use acetic acid on the top hinge of the door. It flows down to the other hinges.

Exit the lab.

Go to the exit door. Automatically call Kruger. Leave the dispensary.

Go to room and read mail:

Inn:    Enter and talk to Ojana. Click on the garlic on the counter. Father Arno gets sick and is now affected by garlic.

Bedroom:    Go up to the bedroom. Open the bedroom door and hear a warning shout - Careful!. Do not open further or the bomb will explode. There are repeat chances if you die.

Bomb:    Look at the space between the door and the door frame. A string is stretched between the 2 places.

Use a thumbtack to hold the doorframe part of the string and then use the thumbtack to hold the string on the door or just use the thumbtack on the door string alone. These actions hold the string in place and not be pull.

Use the knife to cut the string.

Enter and see Maria's bird on the window - Boom, boom!

Take the bomb on the door.

Mail:    Check the table. Open Irina's packet with the knife.

There is garlic inside the packet. Use the empty metallic box taken from Maria's room on the garlic to get garlic in a box.

Read the materials sent by Irina.

Get information:

Ojana:    Go down and confront Ojana. Learn that Janos and someone from Alba Iula entered Arno's room.

Janos' Letter:    Father Arno asks about Janos' letter that is on the counter. Take and read Janos' letter from Heinrich von Kruger.

Use the enlarger on the letter and see holes. Take a closer look at the period of the signature of Kruger. Something stuck here. Hmm...

Janos' room:    Go upstairs and enter Janos' room. Search the room.

Desk:    Check the calendar on the desk left of the door. It is for Dienstag (Tuesday) September 14, 1920

Take the lighter.

Read the letter from the Vesnicie Foundation and then the Thule brochure. See the Blood of the Dragon under the brochure.

Use the bunch of keys taken from Janos on the drawer of the desk.

Look at the German passport issued to a Hans Beckermeyer with Janos' picture. That name is one of the subscribers to Thule Society.

Examine the other pages of Vlad's biography.

Coffee table:    Check the items on the table by the window. See a paper, pencil and a box.

Decode Janos' messages:

Code 1:    The paper has embossed text.

Use the pencil on the paper 3 times.

See a code made up of 4 letters each and September IV III I V II at the top. Note the underlined letters of the month.

Decoder:    Use Janos' bunch of keys on the box and see a decoder and a letter.

The decoder has bars on top that are labeled with Roman Numerals at the front end.

On the top of the bars are letters. In between the bars are wheels that cycle the letters.

The bars can be removed and replace another bar by clicking on the front end and clicking it on another bar.

Decoding part 1:   

Enter the revealed Code 1 info on the decoder.

Roman Numerals:    Check if the Roman Numerals on the decoder is the one on Code 1: IV III I V II. If not, rearrange them to that sequence.

Message:    Read Hans-Janos' Decoded report to Kruger. Learn that Martha's grave is empty. Arno is no longer needed. Need to contact the Dragon to enter the castle. The blood tests are needed to determine who are servants and who are victims of the Dragon.

Decoding part 2:   

Click the letter that is in the drawer on the codes exposed by the pencil. It shows another set of 4 letter codes.

Roman Numerals:    Examine the envelope. Use the enlarger on the date stamp. It is August 28, 1920 from Munich. Based on the calendar at the desk that gives info that September 14 is a Tuesday; backtrack to learn that August 28 falls on a Saturday.

Check the Janos note taken from his pocket at the shed and see that the numbers for Saturday is erased.

Find the numbers for Saturday:    Study Janos note with numbers.

See that the number moved position for the next day's sequence based on the number to its right.

Day 1 2 3 4 5
Sonntag 2 5 1 3 4
For example the number 2. 2 is beside 5 for Sunday. So for Monday it should be in the 5th column.
Montag 5 4 1 3 2 (to be moved 5th column)
Dienstag 4 3 1 5 2 (to be moved 4th column)
Mittwoch 3 5 4 2 (to be moved 1st column) 1
Donnerstag 2 (to be moved 4th column) 4 1 5 3
Based on the above changes, find the numbers for Friday and Saturday

Message:    Read Kruger Decoded letter to Hans-Janos. Learn that the last place of the path is in the ballroom of the castle. He advises to study the Svenson Runic Anthology and its Wood of Blood inscription.

So Janos aka Hans is an agent of von Kruger. Von Kruger and Hans are members of the Thule Society. They are following the Path of the Dragon.

Attic:    Go up the attic and check the gramophone now that we have the wax cylinder from Irina.

Gramophone:    If you have not gotten the silver needle from Ionel yet, do so. (Go to the first intersection from the inn and turn right. Go forward and play games with Ionel.)

Assemble the gramophone. Use the wax cylinder from Irina's safe.

Listen to the last words of Herman Von Bergen. Learn about Dracula, his friend Ioan Hartner, Lucina and the eventual death of both. Arno's nightmare is a replay of the incident.

Take apart the gramophone by placing all the parts in the different compartment. Van Bergen's wax cylinder broke apart.

Go down and go to the dispensary.

Dispensary:    Enter the dispensary.

Shed:    Go to the shed and the fuse box at the cellar.

Raise the handle to the up OFF position.

Take a copper wire from any of the middle row ones and place it on the middle top row to get power to the developing room.

Lower the handle to the ON position.

Exit the shed and go to Maria's room.

Developing room:    Enter the formerly dark room through the door at bottom of the bed.

Maria's portrait:    Look at the light box and see a picture of Maria.

Father Arno has an accident and spilled acetic acid on the picture. Click and then fill the bottle with acetic acid again from inventory.

Look at the disfigured picture of Maria. It's Martha - is this an omen? Automatically remove the picture off the light box. 

Take the sponge on the sink at right, click it on the sink to wet it and wipe the light box. Right click to return the sponge.

Janos' letter:    Take Janos' letter from inventory. Place it on the light box.

Look close and see the holes under specific letters:    C C H H H H O O N A N A S H H O.

Look at the chemical formula on the bottles and deduce that the letters refer to:    C2H4O2, Na2S and H2O.

On one tray only, mix one click each of Acetic acid (C2H4O2), Sodium sulfite (Na2S) and then water (H2O) taken from the bottles in front of the trays.

Use the sponge on the mixture and then wipe Janos' letter with it.

Look close at the letter. Use the tweezers from inventory on the big period at end of the signature. The tweezers has the microfilm now.

Prepare developing solutions:

Clean the tray with the mixture by clicking on the handle part and washing it in the sink.

Read the paper on the right end of the top shelf. It has the ingredients for the 3 solutions needed to develop a picture.

Left tray - Developer: Mix hydroquinone, Metol, Sodium sulfite, alkaline mix and distilled water.

Middle tray - Stop Bath:    Make diluted acetic acid (Acetic acid and distilled water).

Right tray - Fixer:    Mix Sodium thiosulfate and Potassium metabisulfite.

Pick up the paper using the tongs and drop it in the fixer right tray. Count off 7 seconds.

Pick up the paper using the tongs and hang it on the line above the table.

Study the dried picture and see that it is part of the 7 peaks where Vlad was imprisoned in Turkey. Use the enlarger and see 3 symbols on the peaks: trident, pi and ladder.

Shed:    Go back and place the copper wire back to the 2 left slots of the middle row. This brings power back to the lab and the blood will not spoil.

Exit the dispensary.

So it is Kruger and his agent Hans aka Janos that killed Irina and Stephan. They are members of the Thule Society.

With the help of the Iron guards they ransacked and burned the village. They also destroyed Martha's tomb. They are following the Path of the Dragon.

Find Luana the gypsy:

Luana:    Go to the Oak Tree crossroad pass the Field of the Fallen Soldiers.

Talk to Luana. Yes, now we know who the enemies are. Look for a print near the water.

Chapel:    Go forward on the path that Luana showed. Father Arno is getting sicker.

Look down and see the stele of Lord Mircea XIII used as a bridge over the spring.

Go to the chapel and spring source at the foot of the mountain. See the stele of Vlad I and Vlad III.

The tombstone at right is missing. Go back to the stele of Lord Mircea. Click and turn it over. It is for Duke Alexander VIII.

Go back to the Chapel that is the spring source. Look close at the shelf. This looks like a page in Vlad's biography - Punishment. There is supposed to be a gold cup on the shelf.

Go back to Luana and talk to her. She says to find the bowl that was stolen.

Find the bowl that was stolen:

Ionel, the young boy:    Go to Ionel at the ruins at edge of the village and end of the road from the cemetery.

Talk to him. Learn that the bowl was taken by Ariel and Celdric.

Inn:    Talk to Ojana, the mother of Ariel.

Luana:    Talk to Luana at the crossroads again for advice.

Things to collect to get Luana's help:

Blood of a lost battle:     Maria's bloody shawl found on the floor of the Dispensary kitchen.

Ashes of a vampire:    Remember the information gathered from the Van Bergen's wax cylinder played on the gramophone. Luciana Hartner eloped with Dracula and became a vampire.

Go to the cemetery. Talk to the gravedigger sitting on the steps leading to the church.

Give him the matches in exchange for the use of the shovel. Take the shovel.

Turn around from getting the shovel and go forward to the tomb at the end beside a wild rose bush.

Use the shovel on the lid of the tomb. Take ashes from the body with a stake driven on the chest.

Blossom of a rose bush:    Use the knife to cut roses from the rose bush beside the grave of Luciana Hartner or from the bush on the left side of the road going to the castle.

Ring of a killer:    This is the ring left on the ground by an Iron Guard at the tomb of Martha.

Cemetery:    Go to Martha's mausoleum.

Use the key taken from Martha's box on the locked door.

See that the tomb is empty. Read the inscription above it.

Look down on the floor and see the broken cover of the tomb. Take the crucifix and the Iron Guard ring.

Turn around and see but not take the spare key to the mausoleum.

Hazel wand:    Exit the cemetery.

Go to Ionel again at the end of the road from the cemetery.

Give him the gramophone and in exchange, you can look in his treasure bag.

Take the forked stick-slingshot-hazel wand.

Berries of Mountain Ash:    This can be found in front of the castle ruins.

Go back to Luana at the Oak Tree crossroad. Place all the collected items on the box in front of her. She tells you to wait.

Inn:    Automatically be in the bedroom at the Inn, Father Arno writes in his journal. He decides to mail his journal to Monsignor Briganti in case something happens to Arno. Take the journal (letter to mail).

Ojana:     Go down to the front desk. Ojana said that Luana left a forked stick. Take the forked stick from the counter.

Place the letter to mail on the box at right end of the counter. Exit the Inn.

Chapel:    Go to the path shown by Luana at the Oak Tree crossroad. Luana's caravan is not the there anymore.

Find the cup:    Walk the path left of the Oak Tree.

Take the forked stick from inventory and see it in front of you.

Go forward and watch the tip of the forked stick. You will see the tip move or point to where you should go.

After the stele stone bridge over the spring, see more activity on the tip of the forked stick. Point it and click to a mound across the stele bridge and Father Arno will say - I should dig here.

Mound:    Use the shovel on the mound.

Mortar shell:    See the gold bowl but it is under a mortar shell.

If you take the bowl, the mortar shell explodes. The game gives another chance.

Use your hand or cursor to dig 'gently' around the bomb. Click only on the soil around the shell at the middle and by the top area.

When the bomb is exposed, realize that you need a tool.

Cemetery:    Go to the cemetery and talk to the gravedigger still sitting on the steps to the church.

Talk to him and automatically exchange the lantern for a monkey wrench.

Mortar shell:    Go back to the mortar shell. Use the monkey wrench on the cap-tip of the bomb.

Pull the monkey wrench towards you twice in one click-hold-move. The tip falls off.

Push the mortar shell off the cup. Take the gold bowl.

Check the cup and read the engraving on the rim. He who has intelligence walks in the succession of the immortals. Three engraved stelae give the six on the dial.

Castle of Twilight:

Enter the Castle:    Go to the chapel and place the cup on the slot on the shelf.

Number key circle:    See the circle of numbered keys on the dial.

There are 2 missing keys. Use the 2 cartridges taken from the Oak Tree crossroad.

Learn the numbers for the code to push based on the clue from the cup:    Three engraved stelae give the six on the dial.

Check the 2 stele on the ground at left: It is for Vlad I and Vlad III. The one that is used as bridge on the spring is for Alexander VIII on one side and Lord Mircea XIII on the other side.

The dial has numbers for 1 -13.

Based on the clue there are 6 numbers needed. We have 1, 3, 8 and 13 as clues.

To get 6 logical mathematical progressions, realize that: 1 + 2 = 3; 2 + 3 = 5; 3 + 5 = 8; 5 + 8 = 13.

These are obtained by adding the previous number to the sum of the previous calculation.

Therefore press the keys for: 1 - 2 - 3 - 5 - 8 - 13.

The door opens.

Cave:    Read the inscription on the slab - Enter freely and of your own will.

It is dark in there. Use the lighter taken from Janos' room on the torch on the left inside wall. It lights up all the torches in the path.

Sarcophagus:    Go forward and see a sarcophagus in a cavern. Go close to the sarcophagus and see rats come out.

Read the inscription on the sarcophagus. Vlad the Great?

Turn-click the skull on the lid. Look inside and see that it has bones from a horse.

Rats:    The exits are blocked by the rats.

Use the oil can on the water. Use the lighter on the oil slick.

Watch as the fire flows over the oil slicked water and destroys the rats and also the entrance-chapel.

Memories pass through his mind. Arno's life passes before him.

Escape the sarcophagus:    To escape the fire, Father Arno jumps in the sarcophagus and close the lid.

His nightmare revisited. It is dark in there but he has now night vision. Uh oh!

Circular lock:    The circular lock hold the bars in place.

Use the Charon skull medallion-old coin that Maria left on the bed on the slot of the circular lock.

It unscrews the lock.

Bars:    Look at the 4 bars that seals the lid.

Click-hold-move a bar to push it inwards away from the wall slots. Do this to all the bars.

Push the lid away.

The smoke is suffocating. The outside path is still burning and is blocked by the destroyed chapel. Go the other way.

Maze:    Father Arno falls down a trap door.

Clue:    Read the inscription on the floor. It is not suitable that the sequence of the immortals grow infinitely. Of those who come, few will be chosen. The immortals want that their number be limited and the rest be their victims.

This inscription is also a clue. Since the immortals wants limited immortal servants, it follows that numbers should decrease, not increase. We already saw a mathematical progression on the entrance number lock. So the clue to the maze is a sequential decrease in number.

Take note of the Roman Numerals above each spiked gate.

If we continue the entrance number lock progression, we will reach up to the number of the only spiked gate open - MDXCVII (1597).

Going in reverse from the calculated sequence, enter the spiked gate that has these numbers:

Forward to MDXCVII (1597) There's an odor of tobacco.

Right to CMLXXXVII (987)

Left to DCX (610)

Forward to CCCLXXVII (377)

Forward to CCXXXIII (233)

Forward to CXLIV (144)

Forward to LXXXIX (89) Smells like tobacco - Horizont brand. Look at the floor and see fresh blood.

Right to LV (55) Strange odor, much stronger than tobacco.

Right to XXXIV (34) Fresh blood on floor. Advance in spite of risk.

Left to XXI (21)

Forward to XIII (13)

Forward to VIII (8)

Left to V (5)

Right to III (3)

Left to II (2)

Right to I (1)

Forward to I (1)

Forward to blank.

Before the Per Aspera gate, Father Arno falls down again through another trap door. Meet Janos.

Mythical Beasts Duel:    Talk to Janos and learn about his involvement. He says that he did not kill the Irina or Stephan. Is his pants on fire? He also says that Maria is a servant of Dracula.

See that there is a panel with 5 mythical beasts: Water serpent, basilisk, griffon, hydra (2 heads) and Cerberus (3 heads).

The object of the puzzle is to select a beast and Janos selects his beast. If a player's beast wins, the partition that separates the men moves towards the loser. The partition pushes the loser closer to the back wall. After 4 wins, the back wall of the loser shoots out spikes. The fifth win kills the loser.

Clue:    Take note of the panel and the lines that joins the beasts. There are arrows on those lines that point to the beasts that can be defeated by that beast.

The water serpent at top left defeats-points to basilisk at top right, cereberus at bottom left and griffon at bottom right.

The basilisk at top right defeats the griffon at bottom right and the hydra at bottom.

The griffon at bottom right defeats the hydra at bottom.

The hydra at bottom defeats water serpent at top left and cereberus at bottom left.

The cereberus at bottom left defeats the griffon at bottom right and the basilisk at top right.

Knowing the strength of the beasts will aid in the selection of your beast to fight the next opponent.

The water serpent at top left is the strongest since it wins against 3 opponents but can be defeated by the hydra. The weakest is the griffon but can defeat the hydra.

Play:    Select a beast by pressing an icon. Janos will select his beast without knowing what you selected.

Look up and see the selected beast and who won on that round. The defeated one falls down.

Result:    After 4 wins of Father Arno, his conscience would not allow for murder by winning the fifth and final round. Janos does not have the same compunction but will kill Arno on the fifth round.

My solution which may be different from yours is: 4111 and then 1 or 4113 and then 1.


Escape Duel room:    If Arno wins 4 times and has moved the partition to push Janos, a panel at left side is exposed.

Spike cable:    Use the monkey wrench to open the panel at left wall.

See the wire held by metal link that springs the spikes. The link cannot be cut but is screwed in to the wire.

Insert the knife inside the link. Turn the link to the left until the knife is at the back.

Take the knife and repeat until the link is unscrewed from the holder. This stops the spikes from springing-shooting out.

Take the steel wire that held the link.

Play the game one more time to win and move the partition.

This exposes the exit door completely. Exit the duel room.

Hallway:    Enter a hallway that has a gate at other end. There must be no light here since Arno is using his night vision. There are 2 puzzles here, one on each side of the hall.

Blood, sweat and tears:    Study the left side puzzle.

Read the text at top of the puzzle: Tears to tears. Sweat to sweat. Blood to blood.

The puzzle is made up of squares that has gates on each of its 4 sides. By opening a gate, liquid flows to the next square.

See 6 of those squares releases liquid. There are 2 sweat squares, 2 tears squares and 2 blood squares.

The object of the puzzle is what the text states - to join similar squares blood to blood, sweat to sweat and tears to tears by opening gates without the liquid crossing a square of another liquid.

Identify the liquids:    Use the cup on the right side and dip-click it on the liquid.

Taste the liquid. Blood is like wine for Arno. Sweat is both acrid and acid. Tears are salty.

Puzzle:    Open the gates to make the liquid flow towards the other square.

Plan the path that will not make that liquid cross another liquid.

Do the longest and difficult one first - the sweat ones at top and bottom. Then do the tears and lastly do the blood squares.

When correctly done, hear the removal of one bar of the gate.

Skull and hat puzzle:    Study the puzzle on the right wall.

There are several skulls on the wall, all except one is wearing a hat. 6 of the skulls have a spike or nail on the skull.

The object of the puzzle is to place the spikes on the correct skulls.

Recall the drawings from Vlad's biography that have reference to his punishing foreigners because they do not remove their hats. There is the original with the foreigners being Turkish and the copy has the foreigners as Genoese. The drawings are found in documents titled Punishments (Vat.) and Punishment (V. Berg).

Study the 2 drawings with the enlarger and note the differences.

There are 6 spikes on the table and one held by the torturer. The foreigners are wearing turbans. So there are a total of 7.   There are 5 spikes on the table and one held by the torturer. There are 3 men wearing hats. This picture is missing one spike.

Study the hats of the victims above with the enlarger.

Place spikes on the 3 skulls with turbans. Place spikes on the Genoese hats.

As shown by the drawing, there is one spike missing and one hat that needs to be identified.

The missing one is shown to be on the Genoese picture.

Use the enlarger to find the clue as to the 7th hat. Check the flag flying on the mast of the ship.

See a symbol of Genoa. Find the similar symbol on the metal hat of the soldier at middle of the wall.

Use the syringe that was taken from Irina's head on the 7th skull.

When correctly done, hear the removal of the other bar of the gate.

The gate falls down to open the next room.

Japanese Tile Puzzle:    Enter a well room. Across is a skull.

There are recessed steps that circle the wall going up close to the opening at the top opening of the well.

Turn around and pull the lever on the floor. The gate drops. The panel on the floor opens with the words - Don't look back. If you do turn around, you die. The skull across the abyss shows the pattern of the tile puzzle on the floor.

Open the panel on the floor. See a Japanese tile puzzle.

The puzzle is made out of tiles or squares. Clicking on the tile cycles to white, gray and black tiles.

Above and left are black numbers which means the number of black tiles present. If the number is on top, that shows the number for the column. If the number is on the left side, it means the number for that row.

Bottom and right are gray numbers which corresponds to the gray tiles present. If the number is at the bottom, that shows the number for the column. If the number is on the right side, it means the number for that row.

If there are several numbers seen, that means the number of tiles that are separated. For example: 2 2 means there are 2 tiles side by side and somewhere else in that column or row is another 2 tiles side by side.

The puzzle is random. Here are some solutions:


Once completed correctly, see that the recessed steps pull out and a platform slides out on the other side.

Bracelet and mirror:    Jump to the other side and climb on the steps. Hear a voice that states that she lost her bracelet for the ball. It might be at the bottom of the well.

Get the bracelet:    Go down again and on the platform by the skull, look down and right to see a hook.

Use the steel wire on the hook and go down.

Look down and feel through the foot of the skeleton directly below you. Take the bracelet.

A monster growls and Arno drops the bracelet while climbing up the steel wire.

Get rid of the monster:    Jump to the other side of the well.

Pick up a stone from left of the opened gate. Use stone on water. That didn't help.

Go to Janos at the duel room. On the way, pick up the syringe from the center skull.

Janos' drink:    Talk to Janos to borrow his lighter. He will give the lighter only if you find him something to drink. He gives his empty bottle - flask.

If you give him water from the bottom of the well or sweat or tears, he will taste it and asks for another.

Dip the flask on the blood square of the blood, sweat and tears puzzle. Give the filled flask with blood) to Janos. He gives the lighter.

Go down the well via the steel wire.

Go to the mouth of the cave and use lighter on the torch on the right wall.

Bats fly out and extinguishes the torch. Light the torch again. Now there's light and the monster will not come out.

Find the bracelet:    Feeling through on the bone might not work this time.

You can use your hands or use the forked stick to find the bracelet. Take the bracelet from the top part of foot of the skeleton directly below you.

Mirror:    Climb out of the well bottom and up to the top of the well. See the mirror on the edge of the well.

Ballroom:    Click to go somewhere. Realize that all the entrances are blocked and has no knowledge of where the ballroom is located.

The ballroom as stated by Kruger is where the last step of the Path of the Dragon happens.

Find the entrance to the ballroom:    Place the bracelet beside the mirror on the edge of the well.

Hear the ghost voices and then see footsteps leading to an entrance. The entrance is blocked.

Go back and take the mirror from the edge of the well.

Remove the 2 pillars blocking the entrance. Click to remove the rubble. A feather drops down. Take the feather.

The Path of the Dragon:

Recall what Irina stated about the end of the path: The initiate must accomplish one last rite. He won't be able to, unless he's understood all he's achieved before, that is, if he knows the order of the trials as well as the objects and symbols related to each of them.

Enter the ruined ballroom. See 7 pillars surrounding a circular area. Each pillar has a gargoyle with an open mouth, an unlit torch at top and a panel in between the two.

The object is to place the appropriate item of that step or path in the mouth of the gargoyle and draw the correct symbol on the panel.

Order and symbol of the path:    To learn the order and symbol of the path, study the map of Turkish prison, mountain photo and the enlarged microfilm.

Map of Turkish Prison:    Use the enlarger to see the meaning of the name of each peak of the Pillars of the World. See that they go counterclockwise starting at the Mount of Offering ending with the Mount of Dragon.

Mountain photo taken by Maria:    See that the wedge shaped symbol is left of the trident.

Microfilm:    Using the enlarger, see that to the right of the trident is the pi symbol and to the right of pi is Jacob's ladder.

Objects needed:    To learn the objects needed for the path, study the documents and find duplicate items or drawings. Find the difference between those similar pictures and items.

The Runic Anthology also gives the clues to the object needed here.

Draw the symbol fast and covers the entire panel.

Path 1:     Go across and look for the pillar that has the bottle of blood already in the mouth of the gargoyle. It is right of the clearing with a circular metal hatch on the floor. Draw the wedge shaped symbol on the panel.

If correctly done, see that the cover of the circular plate in between the pillars 1 and 2 opens up.

Count Dracula:    Go down the opened hatch. See a lever on the wall that closes the entry above.

Sarcophagus:    Enter the chamber and go forward to the sarcophagus.

Read the text on the lid and see that it is Vlad the Great's sarcophagus. Turn or click the skull to unlatch the lid.

Move the lid and open the sarcophagus.

Count Dracula's body:    Use the different items in inventory on Count Dracula.

Click the (in any order) host, crucifix, wild rose, garlic, Rowan berries, holy water, hammer and stake.

(Hear Kruger asking to be let in. You can stop and talk to him if you want. It is not necessary.)

Slowly Vlad's hand grows older. All the items that can be used as weapons in inventory are gone except for the bomb. The bomb can be used as the last resort.

Then the sarcophagus disappears. It is an illusion.

Maria - Martha:    The door opens and Maria comes forward. Talk to her completely and learn what happened to her and what brought her to this state. She leaves after advising Arno, Dracula will know if he says the truth.

Count Dracula:    Dracula arrives. A circle of fire prevents Arno from getting close to Dracula.

Arno wants Dracula closer to him. Dracula asks question and if he likes the answer he will come closer to Arno at the end.

Good answer! On your knees, for your baptism in blood


Watch Arno perform his final act.

Kruger and Hans are blocked by the rabble.

A green mist escapes the destruction.

In 1943, Hans is questioned about Operation D that was done with Kruger.
