After you talk to the desk sergeant in the Police Station, a cop on a motorcycle will arrive at Jackson Square. Go and find the mime, and have him follow you near to the cop, who will get annoyed and chase him away. Use the radio on the cop's motorcycle to find out where the crime scene is.

Crime Scene

After Mosely leaves, look at the lines in the sand, then copy them into your sketchbook. Use your magnifying glass to look at the flattened section of grass on the right, then use your tweezers to pick up the snake scale. Pick up some clay from the shore while you are here, then leave the area.

Go back and talk to Mosely again about photographs, and suggest a cop/author photograph. After one photo is taken, say you need to go outside and check your hair.

Cazaunoux Residence

Knock on the door, but Madame Cazaunoux will refuse to see you no matter what you say. Put on the black shirt and try again, but apparently you need to be better groomed. Use the hair gel and try a third time, and you will be allowed inside. Talk to her about everything - when she asks what Cabrit Sans Cor' means, answer "goat without horns".

Look at the new markings, and copy them into your sketchbook. Compare the two sketches in your inventory.

Police Station

The officers will all leave the station temporarily to buy beignets from the vendor you just sent there. While they are gone, open the swinging door and use Mosely's key to get into his office. Note: you may need to use a CPU slowdown program if you are running a fast computer in order to get past this point. If you miss your chance, you can still sneak through the swinging doors while the desk sergeant has a very quick nap after eating. Once in the office, open the desk drawer and look inside, then pick up the trackers.

Historical Voodoo Museum

Put a tracker inside the sekey madoule near the front door.

Bayou St John

Use the tracker device on yourself, then use the grid in the bottom right of the screen to navigate through the forest - just move in the direction of the flashing dot.

Go east through the archway into the chapel, and look at the stained glass window, the pews and the panels on the walls. Go back and talk to Gerde about the Chapel Panels and the Initiation Ceremony, then pick up the salt shaker near her, and the dagger from the left wall. Go back into the chapel to look at the panels again:

  • hands and water
  • hair and a knife
  • chalice on table, ocean waves
  • knife and blood
  • someone kneeling
  • a scroll

Head upstairs to the bedroom. Pick up the scissors and pot from the dresser, and use the scissors on yourself. Take the scroll from the cabinet left of the mirror here. Next, open the window and wash your hands in the snow (operate the snow, don't pick it up). Look at the inscription just above the door to the left, then go back downstairs. Ask Gerde about the Portal Poem, then enter the chapel again. Put the pot on the altar, then use the dagger on yourself, followed by the salt shaker on the pot. Use the altar to kneel before it, then use the scroll on yourself.

Day 8

Pick up the large brass key on the chest near your bed, then use this to get through the door to the left and you will be in the library. Look at the middle section of the rear bookcase, then pick up the geography book that caught your eye. Next look at the top right section of the rear bookcase, and pick up the sociology book. Next find a history book from the top of the left bookcase, then a book on religion from the left section of the rear bookcase, and finally a book on snake mounds from the bottom right of the rear bookcase. Head back to Gerde and give her the book, saying you can pay with your credit card.

Day 9

Snake Mound

Walk towards the mount to enter the outer circle. There are twelve rooms here, arranged in the shape of a clock face, each with a number 1-12. Walking north effectively takes you forward one hour in the clock. Keep walking forward and picking up tiles from the wall/floor until you have 10. Also collect the silver snake rod from the floor of one of the rooms. Now keep walking north until you find the room with the mouth on the wall and a stuck tile. Look at this tile to see it has 7 snakes on it - this is room 7. Head north, and examine the tiles in your inventory until you find the one with 8 snakes - put this in the wall of this room. Continue around the clock and insert the appropriate tile into each wall.

Now get ready to dodge some mummies. Go to room 3 and insert the rod in the middle of the tile. Quickly go north twice, then in the next room head to the right wall, wait for the mummy to approach, then dodge past and continue north. In this room grab the vines and swing north. Now wait for the conversation to end, and quickly use the rod in the hole behind the open panel.

Head east and look at the carvings on the side of the sacrificial table. Look at the lid of the table, then get the two iron bars from the wall. Operate the bars to open the lid. Head west as instructed and use the dagger on the dead creature.

Day 10

St George's Book Shop

Pick up the envelope from the desk and you will read Malia's note. Talk to Mosely in the bedroom, and you will give him the tracker at the end of the conversation. Leave the bedroom and read the newspaper before leaving the store for the last time.

St Louis Cathedral

Walk into the confessional on the left, and insert the rod into the knothole in the back wall. Put the rod and the tracker under the seat before leaving. Use the keypad to the right to enter the outer ring. Head south twice and use the keypad to enter an office. Pick up the black record book and read it in your inventory. Leave the office. Go north 3 times and use the keypad to find a storeroom. Pick up the wolf mask and boar mask, and two robes from the rack behind. Exit the storeroom and go east twice to find the inner circle.

Use a set of drums, and with the first book select the word "Summon" then from the next book "Brother Eagle". Go out through the northeast exit, then continue west to reach the outer circle again. Go north once and use the keypad. Take the plastic card from Dr John's room (he should now be in the inner circle). Go south and try the keypad, but it is locked. Use the plastic card here to enter the money room. Pick up some money, then leave the room.

Go south twice and use the plastic card to enter the morgue. Look at the body and other bits and pieces around the room, then go back outside. Go south 3 times and use the card to enter Grace's room. Use the talisman on Grace to wake her up. Give the boar mask to Mosely, and wear the wolf mask yourself.

In the ritual, show the talisman to Malia when you get the chance, then throw it to Mosely. Grab the idol from Malia's hand, then try to grab Malia before she falls.
