EPISODE 1

The beginning

In the office, examine the desk and pick up all the items you’ll find there. This way, you’ll get a magnifying glass, a paper knife, a fang shard, a peanuts bag and an empty vial.
Leave the office and go to the Trembling Stars, the night club owned by Little Big Bog. It’s useless to talk to Molestia right now; the only useful information you could get from him is that the night is still closed.
Go to the side alley and examine the area: you’ll find an old, rusty battery. Pick it up.
Go to the office and look at the lopsided paint to find out there is a safe hidden there.
The safe is broken, but you’ll need the money inside it. To open the safe, use the old battery on the vial: this way, you’ll pour the acid inside it, obtaining an acid vial.
Use the acid vial to open the safe and get the money.
Go to the police station and talk to Hyevni; try to ask him about Daphne, and you’ll find out he is reluctant to tell anything.
Use the money on Hyevni then talk to him again.
Ask about Daphne, asking where she lives. He will give you the address.

Daphne’s apartment

Go to Daphne’s apartment; force the door using the fang shard.
Once inside, examine the wallpaper and then use the paperknife on it to reveal a hidden place; once you get the necklace and the key, examine the glass shards on the floor.
Use the magnifying glass on the shards to get a tissue sample.
Leave Daphne’s apartment and go to Doc Mipihdas’s laboratory. Talk to him and ask him to examine the items you just found.
He will tell you to wait until he ends the exams; while waiting, go to the Trembling Stars: now the night is open, but still you won’t be admitted to get in.
Go on the side alley to find a sick boy. Trying to talk to him will be useless, but you’ll realize he knows Daphne. Show him the photo to get his attention and tell him you’re looking for Daphne. Now go back to the entrance and talk to Molestia: Mobbett Cross will help you to get in.
Now you’re inside.

The assault

Talk to everybody in the room to get an idea of the place. Talking to Trixel, the bargirl, will be very useful to get some clues.
After a while, you’ll realize to be stuck; like Mr. Gilbert suggest you in his thoughts, go back to your office.
A man will try to kill you: to defeat him, the right order of action is:
1. Use your power on the gun
2. Manipulate the bullet’s shell
3. Hit the knife’s hilt with your tentacles
After the hit-man goes away, you’ll get an unexploded explosive bullet and a bone knife.
Go to the laboratory: now it’s time to get the powerful narcotic Doc Miphidas keeps on his shelf.
Use the bullet on the crematorium to distract him; while Doc is looking for the explosion, take the narcotic.
Leave the laboratory and go to the Trembling stars, then go inside.

The Trembling Stars

In the club, if you tried to speak to Dwyll, the old alcoholic, you’ll notice that he continues swallowing the peanuts in front of him.
Examine the location, then use the narcotic peanuts on the bar peanuts; soon, Dwyll will eat them and fall asleep.
Search him and you’ll find LBB’s office key.
Go to the corridor, use LBB’s key on the office door, and get inside.
Examine the room, examine the desk and read the register and the occult little book to gather information about LBB. You’ll notice that the desk appears to hide something.
Go back where you can examine the desk, and use the paper knife on it: you’ll find a secret drawer.
Examine it to find some very interesting letters and read them.
Go back to the main room and talk to LBB. Talk him about your powers and tell him you can read his blood.
After you spoke with him, go to speak to Trixel.
Try to leave the night and you’ll find out you can’t go through the main door: someone is looking for you!

To the Manzaran

Go to the back corridor, then to the baths. Examine the room and pick up the used syringe. Open the WC door and use the syringe on the passed out drunkard.
Now examine the small window to find out there is a man waiting for us outside.
Use the blood filled syringe on the small window to get rid of him. Go back to the corridor and use the backdoor, then go away.
Go to the police and tell to Hyevni about the man who tried to kill you. He’ll ask you some clues. Show him the knife, than give him the whisky bottle to get some information: he’ll tell you about the Manzaran.
Go to the Manzaran, examine the door and interact with the door slit. You’ll find out you need something to get in.
Go to your office: you’ll find Miss Malaguard waiting for you.
Talk to her to get more information. Go to the laboratory and talk to Doc Miphidas to know what he found out about the necklace and the sample you gave him.
Go back to the Manzaran, talk again to the door slit and tell it that ‘you’re qualified to get in’.
Now use the necklace on the door slit and you’ll get in.
