For those who donít remember Brian, he is a fellow human that April met on one of her first visits into Arcadia. A knock at the door will disturb his concentration, and it appears that a monk has stopped by to retrieve him. Heíll ask you to follow him, but if you want, you can look around and get acclimated to the new controls before continuing on. When youíre ready, follow the monk out to the hallway and into a room where there are other monks meditating. Off to the side, youíll see two monks conversing with each other. If you want to listen to their conversation, you can activate the focus field by right clicking your mouse and highlighting them (credit: J. Hawkins). The monks will discuss how Brian is the perfect candidate for what they are doing because he was eager to be a part of it. Theyíll continue to talk until one of them says that the walls have ears. After a bit, the monk you followed into the room will tell Brian to step up onto the dais, and the group will perform a ritual that transports Brian into a whole new world. When he materializes, there will be a stranger here. The stranger becomes upset and he wants Brian to come back to wherever it is he came from, although Brian doesnít quite fully grasp what is going on. Just then, a black blob known as the Undreaming appears in the sky and the stranger will run off. The Undreaming will stretch out its tendrils and engulf Brian, who doesnít know what is going to happen to him. Chapter 1 Ė One: Youíll be introduced to ZoŽ Castillo, who appears to be in a coma with her father sitting near the foot of the bed. After she explains whatís going on, sheíll have something important to tell you, but youíll have to go back to two weeks ago before whatever events transpired that caused ZoŽ to wind up in her coma in the first place ever happened. Youíll find ZoŽ lying on her bed watching the news on her television when what she thinks is a viral ad interrupts the broadcast. The ad seems eerily reminiscent of The Ring, and whoever made the video knows ZoŽís name. The little girl in the video implores her to find and save a girl and after itís over, ZoŽ doesnít think too much about it. A purple gorilla known as a Watilla will come to life to tell ZoŽ that she has a message waiting for her and sheíll realize that her phone is ringing and gets up off the bed. You can talk to the Watilla if you want to learn that its name is Wonkers. Heís a robot and he can give ZoŽ the latest news or remind her of what is currently on her schedule. While he is programmed to be perpetually happy, you canít help but feel sorry for the little guy because he wants to play a game, but ZoŽ doesnít have the time anymore. The new control scheme in Dreamfall will take some time to get used to since itís not a simple point-and-click that most of us adventure gamers might have become accustomed to. Anyway, pick up ZoŽís phone off the chair and sheíll realize that sheís late for an appointment at the gym. Open the closet near the door and ZoŽ will get dressed. Head downstairs to find her dad, Gabriel, awake and drinking some coffee and you can talk to him if you want. Gabriel will be leaving later today for Bombay for work and youíll learn that ZoŽ isnít quite sure what to do with her life at this point in time with everything that has happened to her recently. You can leave the house if you want and youíll get to explore the city of Casablanca. Walk through the arch to ZoŽís right and follow the path to watch a scene where a large airship flies overhead and youíll get to see just how large Casablanca truly is. Follow the path down a couple flights of stairs and youíll see some people walking around here. Talk to them if you like, but weíre more interested in Olivia, the woman standing in front of the shop. Sheíll ask if you want to see something cool, and while you can choose not to see it, I recommend that you do because youíll get to see another video like the one ZoŽ saw in her bedroom. When you enter the shop, walk down the stairs and towards the door at the end. Olivia will come out and start talking to ZoŽ about a device that will make her mobile invisible so that The Syndicate canít trace it. Olivia can install it later, and the conversation will end when Olivia gets a phone call. Feel free to leave the shop now. Follow the road down into the central plaza and as you enter, a friend of ZoŽís will run up and remind her that she needs to get to the gym or Jama, the martial arts instructor, will not be too thrilled. Follow her into the next screen and youíll see a taxi parked nearby and a set of stairs leading up to a door. Enter the door to find the gym. Youíll be introduced to Jama, and you can answer her however you want because soon after youíll get into a sparring match thatíll introduce you to Dreamfallís lame combat system. Fighting Controls: L (or left mouse button) Ė Light Attacks Ė Light attacks are quick moves designed to inflict minimal damage on your opponent, but also ensure that you donít open yourself to a counter-attack. K (or right mouse button) Ė Heavy Attacks Ė These are designed to inflict as much damage as possible to your opponent, but they are slow and will open your character up to a counter-attack. These should only be used when your opponent is left completely vulnerable. Space Ė Block Ė In order to protect yourself from an opponentís attack and counter-attacks, use the spacebar to block. In addition, you can also dodge attacks by holding the space bar and the directional arrow in the direction you wish to dodge. Jama may seem tough at first if you donít know what youíre doing, but sheís actually more of a pushover. Whether you beat her or not, you can continue fighting with her as many times as youíd like or quit and continue on with the game. As you leave the gym, ZoŽ will see the all too familiar video play on a screen near the stairs. When you get outside, sheíll then get a phone call from her ex-boyfriend, Reza. He wants her to meet him at the Moca Loco, so letís go there. The Moca Loco is to the left when you re-enter the fountain plaza. Youíll see Reza sitting by himself, so go over and talk to him. A dialogue choice will pop up where you can either invite Reza to the party later on or not. If you do, he says that heís a bit busy but if he gets his work done early heíll stop by. Heíll then ask ZoŽ to do a favor for him which involves picking up a package from the Jiva Corporation that is located inside the Seshadri Building. The person who has the package is Helena Chang and while she only wants Reza to pick it up, Reza says heíll send a message to her to let her know that ZoŽ is coming. After Reza leaves, go to the taxi stand and hop in to take a ride to the downtown area. Go up the stairs and push the button to call the elevator. Youíll see a dirty blonde-haired woman using the computer behind the desk. When you talk to her, youíll see that she looks like someone from the Matrix. Sheíll act rude towards ZoŽ, but let her know that you have an appointment. Sheíll continue to become mad when a woman appears on the screen behind her. Ask her about it in order to get into a fight. The woman is pretty easy and while she might attack a couple times, heavy attacks will take her out in no time. Alternative solution: If you want to avoid a fight with the woman, distract her from the screen and then plead with her to check around for the package. Sheíll enter a room to her right and while she is rooting around, use the control panel to shut the door and lock her inside. (Credit: S. Prince, P. Adamowicz, O. Dim) Whether you knock out the woman or lock her up, use the computer on the desk to open the other set of doors and an alarm will be set off in the process. Go through the door and youíll see a man dressed similarly to the woman doing something with a door. Youíll also see a woman trapped behind it. Heíll spot ZoŽ and then run off, but ignore him for now. Try to open the door to find that it wonít budge. The woman behind it will point upwards, suggesting that thereís something above the door that ZoŽ can use to open it. Look at the box to the left of the door and ZoŽ will comment that she can climb onto it. Do so and then climb up to the top of the door. Crawl over to the panel and open it to find the manual release. Pull the lever and then climb back down. Open the door and the woman will thank you for your help before running off. Go back to the elevator to have the woman say that itís jammed. Sheíll go over and do something to fix it, so press the call button when it turns green and then get into the elevator. At the bottom, the woman will introduce herself as Helena Chang. Sheíll wonder what you were doing in her laboratory and ZoŽ will explain everything to her. Youíll learn that Helena never got Rezaís message. Sheíll give you the package and sheíll tell you that it needs to get to Jericho (Reza) as soon as possible. Youíll be given an option to ask her about the package, which Helena tells ZoŽ that itís none of her business, or you can ask about the way she reacted to hearing ZoŽís last name. Helena will explain that she once knew a Castillo, but it wasnít anyone related to ZoŽ. Helena will leave, and ZoŽ will be alone once again. Call a taxi to go back to the marketplace and if you decide to open the package, youíll find an encrypted data cube inside. Itís time to go to Rezaís apartment to make sure heís okay. To reach his apartment, go through the blue arch between the sushi and fruit stands and go up both flights of stairs to a red door and go through it. If you look at the mailboxes, ZoŽ will say that Reza is in apartment 8. Go up the stairs and follow the hallway to the right. ZoŽ will see a cat standing outside his door, which proceeds to jump out the window. Sheíll also notice that the door to Rezaís apartment is cracked open, which isnít like Reza at all. Enter his apartment and ZoŽ will find the body of a woman on the floor with a flower sticking out of her mouth. The video will make an appearance here, which shows EYE commandos storming the building and making their way up to Rezaís. You have several choices available to you, but each will have the same outcome. You can leave the room and make a break for it, wait in the room for the commandos to show, or I discovered that if you enter the bathroom, you can hide behind the door. The commandos will find ZoŽ no matter what you decide to do and then stun her. Sheíll wake up inside an interrogation room and youíll have to answer several questions that are being asked by an unseen interrogator. You can make the interrogator mad by counteracting or you can choose to be cooperative and comply with the interrogatorís wishes. Next you can either lie or tell the truth. Lying wonít accomplish anything since they already know the truth, so you might as well come clean. The last choice will allow you to plead with the interrogator and insist that ZoŽ had nothing to do with the current situation, or you can try to reason with them. Chapter 2 Ė Lost: As the chapter opens, weíll see that ZoŽ has made it back to her apartment and is trying to reach Reza on her phone. Sheíll leave a message for him and then try calling her dad, only to learn that heís not available either. Go into her room and Wonkers will come over with a message. Youíll learn that Reza has re-programmed him to play the message if Reza hasnít checked in after 24 hours. The message says that thereís a notebook in Rezaís apartment thatíll have all sorts of information so that ZoŽ can better understand what is going on. Leave the apartment and go over to Oliviaís shop. ZoŽ will tell her what has happened and sheíll upgrade ZoŽís mobile phone with a hack to open the seal on Rezaís door as well as the software cloak that she had told you about the other day. Head over to Rezaís apartment and youíll see the seal on his door. Use the mobile phone on it and youíll have a puzzle to solve. It looks confusing at first, but all you need to do is match the symbols along the bottom to their counterpart above them. Youíll have a set amount of time to solve it, otherwise the code breaker will disconnect and youíll have to wait a few seconds before trying it again. Once youíve successfully broken the seal, go into the apartment and Lucia will come running up to ZoŽ. This triggers a spider robot thatís sitting on the floor to go off, which ends up frying Lucia. Youíll now need to figure out a way to take out the spider, and there are two ways to do it. The first way involves sneaking into the bathroom by holding CTRL as you walk and avoiding the broken glass. Make your way between the toppled chairs and head over into the bathroom, which is near the spider. There is a panel next to the sink that you should turn on, which begins playing music. Stay where you are and when the spider enters the shower, close the door and the water will turn on, frying the spider. Alternative solution: Make your way over to the back of the spider and look at it so that ZoŽ makes a note of the logo on the top of it. Go back to Oliviaís and ask her for the software needed to hack into it and sheíll upgrade your mobile. Go back to the spider and hack into it using the mobile and itíll be fried. Now that the spider is no longer a problem, go over to Lucia and take out the Watilla parts. Take them to Oliviaís and youíll learn that they have been completely destroyed. Sheíll give you a new power source, but itís up to ZoŽ to find a working Watilla brain. This means taking the one out of Wonkers. Go back to ZoŽís apartment and take the brain out of Wonkers. Back in Rezaís apartment, put both the power supply and the brain into Lucia and sheíll come back to life. Talk to her a second time and ZoŽ will say the password. Lucia will recognize it and take you to where the notebook is being kept. Pick it up and ZoŽ will be attacked by a couple of twins. One of them will pick up ZoŽ by the throat and slam her up against the wall before they take off. I wonder what that was all about? After ZoŽ recovers, pick up the notebook and take it to Olivia. After ZoŽ explains what just happened, give Olivia the notebook. Sheíll only be able to decrypt the final entry of the notebook for now, which contains notes on ďVenice, NewportĒ, ďThe FringeĒ, and ďCharlieĒ. ZoŽ decides that she must go to Venice but before we do, you can choose to put Wonkers back together by taking the brain back out of Lucia and then going back to ZoŽís apartment. Once youíre back, you can put the brain back into Wonkers if you have it and then take the backpack out of the closet. Youíll see a scene where ZoŽ has boarded a train to begin her journey to Newport. Meanwhile, in another world, we see a group of rebels hiding from a group of soldiers. One of these rebels you might recognize as April Ryan, the heroine from the first game. Another rebel by the name of Naíane will cast a spell that causes a toxic cloud to form within the group of soldiers. Prepare yourself for a fight! As April, youíll want to dodge the soldierís attacks and counter using heavy attacks because theyíll easily block the light ones. After you take out the first soldier, another one shows up and youíll have to fight him too. When the battle is over, the rebels will continue on their way towards Marcuria. Chapter 3 Ė 201: We see that ZoŽ has arrived in Venice, where itís currently dark and rainy; a stark contrast from the Venice in the first game. Proceed down the alley to find a somewhat more familiar scene. Youíre now at the crossroads that April used to get from the Border House to wherever she needed to go. Our first stop is the Fringe because if you remember, Charlie worked there in the first game as a bartender. Follow the path to the right and then turn right again. The Fringe is located at the end of the path and when youíre there; use the intercom to hear Charlieís voice. ZoŽ will tell him who she is and why sheís there and heíll eventually let her in. How the times have changed. The Fringe used to be a hangout for the art students, but it appears that it has since changed into a nightclub. The hostess will point you in Charlieís direction, where youíll find him sitting at a table in the back of the room. Go over and talk to him and youíll eventually be given a choice on whether to plead, bargain, or threaten Charlie to get the info you need. Choose what you will and then talk to him about all conversation topics. Youíll learn that Charlie used to be a bartender back when it was a popular hangout, but he now manages it after the new owners hired him back after his failed attempt to actually run the place. Heíll also tell you about the Victory Hotel, formerly known as the Border House. After the Collapse, no one wanted to live in Venice anymore if they have a choice. The Border House used to be an apartment complex, but now itís a seedy hotel. Leave the Fringe and go back out to the crossroads. When you reach the clock, turn right and follow the path as it forks diagonally. Here youíll see a staircase and a stand with a Chinaman nearby. The Chinaman will call you over to his stand and you can talk to him if youíd like. Head up the stairs near the stand and cross the bridge. Follow the far path to the right and then turn left when you can. Turn right down the alley and follow the path. The Victory Hotel is on the opposite end of the canal, but instead of going inside through the front door, weíre going to find our way using an alternative method. Climb down the scaffolding to the left of the entrance and follow the canal down to a ladder, which you should then climb up. Youíll find a padlocked door, so look at the padlock before calling Olivia. Sheíll explain to you that a simple lock pick can take care of it, but at the moment, ZoŽ is fresh out. Make your way back to the Chinamanís stand. Talk to him and heíll tell you about how he can get you anything you want, except for drugs since the competition is too strong. When you ask him about a lock pick, he says he has one available, but he wonít let it go for just anything, but he will let it go if you can get him a software cloak for his mobile phone. Call Olivia and sheíll transfer a cloak over, which you should then give to the Chinaman. Heíll agree to give you the lock pick and you can go back to the locked gate to start your next puzzle. This puzzle can be a bit difficult if you donít know what youíre doing, so I will try my best to explain it. Youíll see four chambers, each with different shapes. You will also see a shape above and below each chamber. Your goal is to line up the shapes inside the chamber with the shapes above and below them. A shape can be transferred from one chamber to another by placing it in between two chambers and then clicking on the second chamber to move it over. The trick is to get the shapes in the 3 oíclock and 9 oíclock positions so that all you have to do is turn the chamber to line them up, making you one step closer to unlocking the padlock. Even if you have to move the chamber out of alignment in order to move the shapes from one chamber to the next, it shouldnít make the puzzle any more difficult because youíll just have to turn the chamber again to realign them. I know my explanation isnít too incredibly clear, but itís the best I can do for now. It really doesnít take a genius to figure it all out. Once youíve managed to unlock the padlock, step through the door to see that there is a guard dog sleeping nearby. Itís best to sneak through here because walking or running will wake him up. Youíll only want to sneak when the train is roaring down the tracks and when itís gone, stay where you are until another train appears. If you happen to wake up the dog, run back to the ladder and climb down. Make your way to the shed and open the door. Take the axe off the wall and make your way back to the ladder. Climb back down and go down the alley to the right. ZoŽ will spot a boarded up window with light peeking out. Pull the bar out of the dumpsterís wheel and push it until itís underneath the window, and then climb up and use the axe to chop up the boards. ZoŽ will drop the axe inside the building, so climb through the window. Youíll see that the blade has broken off the axe, so pick up the handle thatís left over. Take a rag off of the work table and then smell each of the cans on the table until ZoŽ finds one that smells like gasoline. Go into your inventory and combine the rag with the axe handle to make a torch. Dip the torch into the gasoline and then go over to the heater and turn it on. Stick the torch into the flame to set it ablaze and then go through the door nearby. Proceed down the hallway until ZoŽ spots a trail of blood and follow it to find even more blood. In the security room, ZoŽ will find Rezaís lighter and take it with her. Take a look at the monitors and then use the mobile to hack into them. Youíll unlock the door at the top of the staircase, so leave here and head upstairs. Head over to the man in the orange shirt and heíll wonder who you are and just what youíre doing inside the hotel. If youíre not careful, youíll have to fight the guy. To avoid a fight, ask him about vacancies and then lie to him. Stay calm and ask him about the manager and then youíll be free to look around, with only a short time to do so before the guy figures out what youíre up to. Run upstairs and follow the hallway to a room where ZoŽ will find a woman with the flower thing on her face. Continue down the hallway until you see a bathroom and take the window handle off of the window inside. Outside the bathroom, head past the stairs and into the room nearby. Use the handle on the window and climb through. By this time, the man got up and was on his way to see what I was up to, but it wonít matter since youíll be outside and climbing up the ladder to the next screen. The ladder will break off once you reach the top, so youíre stuck. Go through the nearby window and youíll want to be careful here as well. There is a drug addict wandering the halls and if he sees you, youíll have to fight him so that he doesnít draw too much attention when he tries to call for help. If you want to be sneaky, start sneaking as soon as you enter the hallway and after you see the addict continue further down, enter the room he just left and swipe his towel. Follow the hall to the end to find a window and an old radiator. If you look out the window, youíll see Aprilís old room below you, but itís a long way down. The towelís too short, so youíll have to find something longer to add to it. Carefully backtrack until you see the addictís room on the right. By this time, the addict was heading back to his room and spotted me, forcing me to fight him. Swipe the sheet off of his mattress and go back to the window. Open the window and then combine the towel with the sheet. Tie them to the radiator and climb down to the walkway below. Follow it around and climb through the window to enter Aprilís room. Open the closet and take the photo thatís lying at the bottom. ZoŽ will mistakenly think itís Charlieís room after seeing the picture, when Marcus will enter the room. Marcus is also from the first game, so you may or may not remember him. He apparently runs the hotel now, so be courteous towards him and then say no to his question. Explain to him youíre looking for a reporter and heíll agree to help you. Afterwards, heíll show you the door. From the hotel, go back to the Fringe. Show Charlie the photo and then push him for more information. A long cut scene will begin in which Charlie tells ZoŽ what he knows before going to call Emma. Once Emma has joined the pair, theyíll fill ZoŽ in more about what has happened since The Longest Journey. When ZoŽ tells Charlie about Marcus, heíll comment on how itís turning into a ďdamn family reunionĒ and then sheíll tell him that she has to go make a phone call, and Charlie will give her access to one of the VIP room upstairs. The stairs are near the entrance, so head upstairs and go into the last VIP room on the left. Use the mobile and ZoŽ will attempt to call Reza, to no avail. After sheís finished, Marcus shows up with some company. Itís the twins that attacked ZoŽ earlier! Theyíll go after her and one of them does something with a knife and then hooks her up to one of those flower devices. I sure hope ZoŽ will be okay! Chapter 4 Ė Winter: ZoŽ will find herself in the vision sheís been having wearing nothing but her underwear (*growls*). Run forward until you get a cut scene in which the little girl appears and sends ZoŽ falling into a pit. When ZoŽ comes to, sheíll awaken inside an underground cave with trolls patrolling the area. Sheíll have some better clothing on this time, and there are two ways to go about dealing with the trolls. The first way is to beat the living snot out of them, but be careful as they can take out a large chunk of your health every time they hit you. The other solution was provided to me by one Kitten831, and here is what she had to say: ďAs soon as you regain control of ZoŽ, look around the general vicinity and you will find two small white pebbles. When you inspect them in your inventory she will point out that they look like they would be good for throwing. Sneak up to the first troll until you have a clear line of sight and using the focus field, use one of the pebbles on the troll. This will make ZoŽ throw the pebble out into the water, diverting the troll's attention and allowing you enough time to creep by using CTRL + movement. As you stated, climb up onto the ledge and walk across the landing to the other side. Watch the second troll from a safe distance up on the landing and wait until he's down at the water's edge, so that he's looking away from you. Throw the second pebble the same way you did the first one. While he's distracted, you will have plenty of time to come around the steps, creep up to the pole to take the glowing egg, and creep away up the path towards the demolished bridge. I found that this method is much more fun in that it allows you to use the objects in the game as they were intended to be used, and avoid taking a beating from some ugly brutes!Ē After theyíve been dealt with, follow the path and climb up the ledge. Climb down the other side and take the glowing egg off of the stick nearby. Continue to follow the path until you see a small set of stairs leading down and head down and then immediately head up another flight of stairs. Youíll see a wheel up against the wall here with a platform behind it for something to sit. Put the egg on the platform and then turn the wheel, making note of the tune that plays. The water wheel will start to move, so take the egg and go down the stairs. Stand near the water wheel and have ZoŽ grab a hold of it. Sheíll ride it up to the scaffolding and as you follow it to the end, one of the planks will break off; leaving a gap that ZoŽ will have to jump across. On the other side, thereís a long ladder for you to climb, so you might as well have at it if you want to continue on with the game. Luckily for you, once youíre about a quarter of the way up, the screen will change and ZoŽ will magically appear closer to the top. The path at the top leads to a dead end, but with the glowing egg in your hand, three symbols will be uncovered on the wall. You can press each of these symbols to generate a different tune from each one. If you can remember the tune you heard when you got the water wheel moving, you can recreate it by using the symbols here. Press the first one, then the second, the first one again, and then the last and watch as a doorway is created for ZoŽ to pass through. The doorway will drop you off into a basement of a building. At the top of the stairway is a locked door, so bust it open and advance. I sure hope you recognize where you are now because youíre in the Journeyman Inn and as you can see, Benrime Salmin is still running the place, even after all these years. You can see that Brynn is here enjoying a meal and heíll alert Benrime to ZoŽís presence. Sheíll be startled and wonder where she came from until she realizes that ZoŽ must be another Shifter coming through from Stark. At some point, ZoŽ will mention Aprilís name, prompting Brynn to look her way before getting up and leaving the inn. Benrime will say that you need to talk to Minstrum Magda to learn how to get back home, and in order to find out where she is, youíll have to talk to Blind Bob. When the discussion is over, head out the door and take your first steps back into the world of Arcadia. Just down the road is a beggar looking for alms and talking to him will reveal that he is Blind Bob. If you want information on how to find Minstrum Magda, youíll have to give him mulled wine. Go back into the inn and ask Benrime about the wine. She says that in order to make it, you just have to boil some red wine and mix in some of Mrs. Mullinsí Mixed Spices. Sheís all out, and the delivery person hasnít shown with her order. Sheíll direct you to where you can find the spice merchant, and you can pick up her order for her. Head past Blind Bob and go into the next screen. Follow the long road into the main courtyard and then hang a right and take the ramp down into the marketplace. The spice merchant will be on the left as you enter the area. Talk to him and in a roundabout way, heíll tell you that heís all out of spice right now because the ghetto is closed while the Azadi soldiers are conducting a raid to look for any contraband. Youíll have to talk to a guy named Ary Kinryn if you want to get what you so badly need. Agree to get them for the merchant and you can find Ary just south of the Journeyman Inn. Heís standing in front of the entrance to the ghetto near his wagon. Heís bit of a jerk, but ZoŽ will be able to deal with him in her own little way. Eventually Ary will become so fed up with ZoŽ that heíll give her the spices. You can either deliver them to the merchant and get Benrimeís order, or you can just go directly to Benrime and hand them to her as either way youíll have spices that you can use. Benrime will tell you that the wine is boiling, and all you need to do is mix in some spices. Go over to the boiling pot and toss in the spices. Pick up the wine jug behind you and fill it up with some freshly made mulled wine. Go outside and give the wine to Blind Bob. Talk to him again and heíll tell you that if you want to find out where Magda is, youíll have to talk to Crazy Clara. To find her, youíll have to go through the gate next to the spice merchant and follow the road. Youíll see a woman sitting alongside the road, and so talk to her to find out that she is Clara. Clara likes to ramble on about things that people have told her. Her only concern is finding her ďbabyĒ, which turns out to be a pet that the Azadi confiscated from her. ZoŽ will decide to go rescue her ďbabyĒ so that Clara will tell her where to find Magda. Head back down into the marketplace and if you look down the alley near where the giant animal is circling, youíll see a cage and I bet thatís where theyíre holding Claraís pet. When the animal is obscuring the view of the soldier standing closest to the alley, run down the alley to the cage and free the animal before the soldier sees you. The animal will take off, but not before scaring the giant beast and causing it to run off as well. Go see Clara and the animal you set free will come running up after you. Itíll jump into Claraís arms and sheíll be happy again. Talk to her about Magda and as she rambles some more, ZoŽ will begin to realize that Magda is the soup lady that she had run past so many times before. Magda is standing next to the spice merchant, so go talk to her and youíll have to tell her that the innkeeper, Benrime Salmin, sent ZoŽ to find her before she actually tells you what she knows. She doesnít like being called Minstrum because the Azadi banned the Sentinel from the city and now they have ears everywhere. You canít talk ill of the Azadi unless you want to be tossed into a place called Friarís Keep. The only help she can provide right now is to point ZoŽ in the direction of someone who can assist her further. After youíre finished talking to Magda, youíll see Brynn hiding behind the merchantís stall and will call ZoŽ over to talk to him. As they retreat to somewhere more private, Brynn says that he heard ZoŽ mention Aprilís name and that he can help her. ZoŽ understandably distrusts him at first, but she has no choice other than to follow him after he promises her that she wonít be locked up in any basements. Brynn will escort ZoŽ over to the Salty Seaman, where he calls out his partner. His partner will restrain ZoŽ while Brynn obscures her face as they take her to an unknown location. Youíll overhear a conversation between Brynn, his accomplice Chawan, and Naíane. After ZoŽís face is uncovered, sheíll find April Ryan staring her in the face. Sheíll begin to ask all sorts of questions and ZoŽ will explain to her what she knows. April seems very bitter about how things have turned out for her and she wonít offer any help other than trying to get her back to Stark. She will bring in Naíane, who attempts to hypnotize her when ZoŽ suddenly disappears, leaving her clothes behind. No one knows where she went, but Naíane feels that she isnít really a Shifter after all. In a distant part of Arcadia in a place called Sadir, we see a man getting ready to fight. Youíll be given control of the man and all you have to do now is fight the others until there are no more to fight. Talk to the man with the red hair and youíll learn that the man youíve been controlled is named Kian and that the person youíre talking to is his master, Garmon. After the conversation is over, a little girl will come and let Kian know that he has been summoned by the Six. Follow the girl until she stops at a door being guarded by two soldiers, and enter the door. Watch the sequence and as you can see, the Six appear to be children. They have a mission for Kian: Go to Marcuria and ďconvertĒ the one called Scorpion, who is a leader of a rebel group fighting against everything the Azadi stand for. Youíll also find out that Kianís last name is Alvane, which is something only the players of The Longest Journey will understand. Afterwards, head back and talk to Garmon to learn about his true views on the Six and the whole religion in general. Chapter 5 Ė Alchera: Youíll see that ZoŽ is alive and well and back inside the Fringe. Charlie is sitting next to her and he lets her know that he had been watching over her all night. The twins that attacked her ended up drugging her and Charlie says that a couple of guests found her passed out in the booth and ended up staying that way all night. You can pick the dialogue choice how you want, although I insisted that everything she witnessed in Arcadia was real. ZoŽ will eventually get up and leave, putting her outside the Fringe. Walk forward until you get a call from Olivia, which results in ZoŽ leaving for Japan. While sheís off gallivanting in Japan, weíre going to see what April is up to back in Marcuria. April will be having a conversation with Chawan and afterwards, leave the room to bump into Brynn. You can make your own choices here and then leave the inn. Head to the tower, and do you see the scaffolding on the far side? Go there and walk along the right side until you reach the cement pillar. Sneak over to the guard and dispose of him so that he doesnít sound an alarm. Climb up onto the scaffolding and April will handle the rest. When you reach the balcony, go over to where you see a partially opened window. Use the focus field to focus on the two people and eavesdrop on their conversation. After theyíre finished, youíll be back at the bottom of the scaffolding. As you head back out to the courtyard, April will see the cloaked figure emerge from the tower and will decide to follow him. Follow him into the Journeyman Inn and go into the kitchen to find Benrime. She says she hasnít seen anything, but I canít imagine how she wouldnít if the person walked right by her. You can see that the door leading to the cellar is wide open, so letís go check it out. April will see the person open a portal similar to the one ZoŽ used to get into the inn in the first place. April will jump through at the last minute and weíre going to see whether or not ZoŽ has made it to Japan. ZoŽ will have arrived in Wati City, home of WATIcorp, the creators of the Watilla, BunnyBot, and more. As ZoŽ steps off, walk over to the vending machine and use the mobile on it to get a pack of gum. Open it to find a sticker and then walk up the stairs to see a sequence with a man who appears to be waiting for someone. Talk to the man, make your choices, and watch as he rips his ticket before tossing it into the trash as he leaves. Dig the pieces out of the trash by picking through it twice and then go into your inventory and use the sticker to make the ticket whole again. Walk over to the cable car and run the ticket through the reader to gain access to the car. Hop in and youíll take a ride over to the WATIcorp museum. Alternative solution to getting museum ticket (thanks to Max DC!): after you talk to the guy waiting for his date and he rips up his ticket, you retrieve it from the bin. then talk to the girl waiting on the bench, she needs a ticket. Then after waiting for a certain amount of time, not sure how long, the guys date turns up at the ticket office, she is wearing different clothes to everyone else, talk with her and at the end she gives you a ticket. then you give the ticket to the girl on the bench and she comes to the museum with you. She plays a certain role in helping you gain access to wATI Corp. Get off the car once youíve reached the other side and head into the museum. Watch the sequence where a boy triggers an alarm and the prick guard will walk over and berate him. His grandmother will walk over and apologize for his behavior, but sheíll get the attitude too. Make your way to the back of the room and push on the red panel to set off an alarm. The guard will tell ZoŽ that the room is for staff only. Go over to where the boy, Hiro, is standing and touch the exhibit to set off yet another alarm and the guard will complain some more. Give the gum to Hiro and then talk to him to have him agree to distract the guard. Hiro will go into the exhibit and activate the BunnyBot, which comes to life and takes off. Go back to the red panel and use the mobile to hack into it. Once youíve unlocked the door, go into the room and into the locker room across from you. Open the nearby locker and take the uniform to have ZoŽ change into a workerís uniform. Go back into the previous room and wait for the cleaning robot to come back out. While the grate is still open, crawl inside and ZoŽ will emerge on the other end. When youíre out, go to the other end of the hallway. Youíre supposed to sneak up the woman and knock her out, but during my first time through the game, I experienced a glitch. The glitch was that I ran up to the woman waiting for the elevator, who realized ZoŽ was there and I was given a set of conversation options. However, they quickly disappeared and while the woman was still looking at her, ZoŽ remarked that the woman doesnít realize she was standing behind her and so I went ahead and knocked her out anyway and was able to continue on with the game. Get into the elevator and use the mobile on the panel to hack into it. After youíre finished, ride up to the top floor and as you attempt to enter the new hallway, youíll be stopped by what ZoŽ refers to as a security bird. Itíll tell you to wait behind the line for an authorized escort, but we donít have time for that. Screw the bird and wait for its back to turn so that itís facing you. As it disappears around the corner, follow it and youíll have to be careful not to get caught. You can hide in the alcoves, but itíll only work if you have ZoŽ press her back up against the wall. If at any time youíre caught by a security bird, itíll track you and zap ZoŽ until you run back to the starting point. Youíll then have to start over again, but the goal here is to make it to the first hallway leading off to the left and exit through the door at the end. Youíll find yourself inside an office, so run around until you find a man sitting at one of the desks. Talk to him and youíll be introduced to Damien Cavanaugh, but be prepared to watch a long cut scene that explains a lot of what has been happening. The flower devices you seen earlier on are actually called Dreamers, and they allow for a type of lucid dreaming. They are supposed to revolutionize the media industry because why would anyone want to watch TV when they can dream about something they want to see and be able to interact with it? The problem is that someone is trying to take over DreamNet, the computer running it all and it just so happens that it is the cause of the Static. Damien was hired to look into it and fix the bugs, but decided to look deeper into the situation when he met Rio, the dead woman inside Rezaís apartment who was also beginning to get a sense of the larger picture. Eventually ZoŽ will agree to help uncover the conspiracy and the two decide to hatch a plan. A guard will come into the room, forcing ZoŽ to hide. After he leaves and ZoŽ re-emerges, theyíll continue talking. Youíll be led to a stairwell, where youíll have to make your way down to sublevel 58 and wait for the lights on the door to turn green. Once they do, open the door and go into the next room. There is a spider patrolling the area, so wait for it to pass and be careful about following it down the hall. ZoŽ doesnít seem to make any audible footsteps that would set the spider off, so once it was far enough away I was able to run the entire time without worrying about the spider too much. Make your way around until you see a slight indentation on the right wall (or left, depending on which way you went). Examine the indentation to uncover a panel and use the mobile on it to have Damien unlock the doors. Youíll now want to make your way to the door with the blue decals and head inside. Take a capsule off of the stand to your right and put the worm inside of it. Look out before stepping back out into the hallway just in case the spider shows up. Once itís clear, go to the medical lab, which is the room with the green decals on the door. Once there, step into the large biometric scanner and then place the encapsulated worm inside the small scanner on the other side of the lab. Go to the security room, whose door is denoted by the shields and attempt to enter. Youíll see a laser grid running along the floor, and in order to deactivate it, youíll have to go to the cybernetics room. The cybernetics room is the one with the red decals on the door. Youíll find an inactive spider there, so use the mobile to turn it on and youíll get to control it remotely. Find the patrolling spider and have the remote spider destroy it. Upload its data and then go into the security room. Maneuver it onto the floor panel and use it to deactivate the laser grid. As ZoŽ, go back into the security room and search the lab coat to find a data key. Go to the only unopened door you havenít visited and use the data key to unlock it. Use the panel to the right to turn on the decontamination chamber and then head inside to get decontaminated. Hereís where things are going to get a little tricky. There are two scientists watching the area. A woman can be seen patrolling the upper catwalk while the other is down below, but will occasionally come upstairs. You can study their patterns if you want, but I decided to throw caution to the wind. When the female scientist is looking at something on the left side and the male scientist has gone back down to the lower catwalk, run along the right side and head downstairs. As long as the male scientist canít be seen, youíre in the clear. Find the small panel on the right and use it to insert the encapsulated worm. Watch the sequences and weíll be revisiting April back in Marcuria to see where she has ended up. April will be inside the subterranean city that ZoŽ initially visited and will be climbing down from the scaffolding that ZoŽ broke on her way through. Walk down the stairs and follow the path to find the cloaked figure rowing a boat down the river to a building on the far side. Continue down the path until you see a scene where a creature goes up to a door and hums a tune to open it. You wonít be able to make it through the first time, so hide next to the stairs for another creature to come along and open it. After the door opens, run up the stairs and through the door before it closes. If you miss, you can keep trying again until you finally make it through. Once inside, look at the altar and then go around behind it to hide. When a creature comes in and goes over to open the next door, use the focus field on it to get the combination to open the door. Repeat the creatureís actions and take the stairs leading down until you see a statue in the wall holding a disc. Turn it so that the triangular 8 is at the top and then continue on. Youíll come to a room that is being guarded and if the guard sees you, heíll send a rancor-like beast to come after you. If that happens, just go back to the stairwell and wait for it to move along. You can use the broken columns to hide from the guard and when he isnít looking, take a left at the intersection to find a statue similar to the one you found in the stairwell. Turn the disc itís holding so that the envelope is facing up and then turn around and go back down the stairs and straight through the intersection, being ever vigilant in case the guard is in the area. Look for a third statue and once you find it, turn that disc so that the crosshair is at the top. Go left from there until you reach a dead end. You can see that the wall isnít entirely stable, so push on it three times until April falls through the hole and into another part of the catacombs. Run straight down the path until you reach a fork. Follow the path to the right to find the last statue. Turn the disc so that the arrow-like symbol is at the top and youíll see that youíve managed to unlock a gate leading into a room with a sarcophagus. Go back the way you came and follow the path as it branches off to the right and youíll eventually find the sarcophagus. Open it to find a glowing egg and take it with you. Backtrack until you come across a broken statue that April thinks is a bit scary and take the path to the left once you find it. Continue straight through and hang a left to find a gate with an egg-shaped indentation. Put the egg inside of it to unlock the gate. The next path you follow will take you out to a balcony and as April gazes over the edge, a guard will send a couple of rancor beasts to patrol the area. Go down the left staircase and get the beast to follow you. Donít let it get too close as you run back up the stairs and down the other side. Go straight up the next set of stairs and part of them will crumble underneath Aprilís feet, leaving her hanging from the ledge. Sheíll pick herself up and you can continue up to the top. Go over to the edge of the next balcony and climb down through the hole to reach a ledge. Jump down from the next one and then jump down again to wind up behind another beast. Sneak into the room behind it and exit off to the left of the sarcophagus. Youíll watch a sequence in which April finds a ďfountainĒ of sorts that has millions of voices crying out. As she is left to ponder what is going on, weíre going to see what kind of mischief ZoŽ has stirred up in Wati City. Listen to the conversation between Gilmore and the two scientists and youíll learn that the core room is about to be locked down. When you regain control, run up the stairs and through the decon chamber. Run out into the hallway and hang a left. As you traverse the corridor, a group of soldiers will emerge from the elevators to look for intruders. Make your way to the elevators while using the alcoves to hide from the soldiers. Once youíve made it, hop in and the elevator will take you for a ride. Its first stop will be on a floor with more soldiers, but the doors will close as one of them fires a shot. Chapter 6 Ė Morpheus: Youíll wind up in what appears to be an atrium. Go towards the back of the room to find this huge green blob that somewhat resembles a person. Heís running the show and knows everything about Reza and ZoŽ, and that would explain the strange cat you saw early on in the game. Talk to him how you will and heíll fill you in with some more background information. Heíll stall long enough for the twins to show up and now you have to make a break for it unless you want the twins to catch up and knock ZoŽ out, which you donít. Run to the left of the blob and go down the stairs. Run to the small building and go through the door and out the other side. Here, run down to the silver box and climb on top of it and then jump out onto the hovering robot. Itíll take you down into an alleyway, where ZoŽ is dropped off into a garbage bin. ZoŽ will climb out and decides to call Damien. More dialogue choices here and after youíre done, weíre going back to Marcuria. Listen to what Naíane has to say and then leave the room. Take April downstairs and talk to Benrime and during the conversation, youíll meet an old friend in Brian Westhouse. While I wonder what exactly happened to him during the prologue, an explanation from A. Adamo has this to say: ďJust thought Iíd fill you in on what happened to Brian Westhouse since the point in the opening sequence. See in the last game he tells April a story about how he first traveled to Arcadia from the far east and during that initial journey he was stuck in between worlds for quite a long period of time, essentially anyone who has not played the first game would be naturally left incredulous to whatever the hell was going on and in fact I hadn't even remembered that part till I read your walkthrough and it got me thinking about it.Ē Catch up on old times and ask Brian about his recent travels. Leave the inn and itís time to visit the magical ghetto and to get there, just go to where you got the spices to see that the path is now unblocked. No stopping in the ghetto for now, so pass through it and follow the path towards the right to enter the harbor. Talk to the dark figure on the docks to learn that he is a Shadowguide. April will ask him for passage on his ship, but they only collect and trade. Attempt to bribe him and heíll say that the Dark People donít crave such things, but rather theyíre out to collect one-of-a-kind books to add to their library. There are no books in your possession right now, so go back into the center of the ghetto. Talk to the merchant in red and April will realize that itís Roper Klacks, the once evil alchemist that April trapped inside a calculator in the Longest Journey. Heís obviously managed to free himself from it and has since reformed himself by denouncing his evil ways. Heís now a simple merchant and a published author. Ask him about his career as an author and then about the book. He uses to have tons of copies available until a charm made its way onto page 108 and caused the book to explode whenever anyone turned to that page. Roper has the only decharmed copy of the book available and he wonít let it go so freely. April will convince him that it would be an honor for him to have his book stored in one of the greatest libraries in Arcadia and heíll agree to let her take it. Give it to the Shadowguide back on the docks and heíll grant you passage to the Dark Peopleís library. While April is making her way over, a scene plays in which ZoŽ is with Damien back inside his apartment and the two get into a discussion. Thereís obviously some sexual tension in the air, but nothing happens because of it. Meanwhile, Kian has arrived in Marcuria and is now standing outside the awe inspiring tower. Head inside and watch the ensuing sequences. While Kian is talking to the woman, theyíre interrupted by Commander Vamon, who doesnít seem to like Kian very much. After Kian leaves, Vamon reveals why he doesnít like Kian very much and weíre off to the next chapter. Chapter 7 Ė Destiny: April has made it to the Dark Peopleís city and sheíll be welcomed with open arms. While the Dark People know who she is, the guide that brought her here didnít know her and no one knows why, even though there are certainly ideas. From here, just follow the Dark Person until he comes to a stop inside the library. After he stops, talk to him and heíll go retrieve the White of the Draic Kin. While youíre waiting, my favorite character from the Longest Journey makes an appearance. The smart-aleck Crow is back and heís still got the same old attitude. Heís harboring a bit of resentment towards April leaving him behind on a mountain path eight years ago, but even he canít resist the urge to ďhugĒ April. After theyíre done talking, the White Dragon will arrive in a human form that is quite appealing to the senses. Listen to what she has to say and sheíll tell April that she hasnít lost her power to Shift, but rather sheís probably forgotten how. Eventually, April will open a Shift, although she isnít sure how she did it, and Crow will join her as she steps through to enter the Guardianís Realm. Another scene with ZoŽ and Damien that sees them reveal their true feelings for one another and they share a couple of passionate moments. In the Guardianís Realm, you can see how beautiful Gordon has made this place. Cross the bridge to the island and make your way up the spiral staircase. Listen to the conversation between April and Gordon before going back through the Shift with Crow. ZoŽ is getting prepared to go back to Arcadia, so Damien injects her with the Morpheus drug and then activates the Dreamer. We find that ZoŽ is back in Winter, so like the first time, run forward until the girl appears and drops ZoŽ into the pit. Chapter 8 Ė Convergence: Kian finds himself confronted by a couple of rebels. Take care of them and afterwards heíll threaten the merchant into revealing what he knows. Ask him about Scorpion and heíll say that he doesnít know anything but he does know some of the rebels because heís done business with them. An Azadi guard will come up and let Kian know that theyíve captured a witch and sent them to Friarís Keep. The guard offers to show him the way, but Kian insists on finding it himself and has the guard take care of the merchant. Go into the ghetto and follow a path until you see Brynn run past Kian on his way to do whatever it is he may be doing. Kian will find his way to Friarís Keep and have a brief discussion with ZoŽ in which he tries to have her set free. Leave the Keep and head down the path to encounter April and theyíll get into a heated conversation, with perspectives changing as new dialogue choices are presented. After Kian takes off, youíll have control of April. Head up to the Keep and rather than trying to go in through the door, look for a hole in the right wall and follow it down to a side yard where youíll find Crow. April will have Crow tell ZoŽ to use some investigative searching and report back with what she sees. ZoŽ has been locked up in a cell while she waits for transport to Sadir. Knock on the door to get the guardís attention and ZoŽ will convince him to leave the hatch on the door open. Look through the hatch and ZoŽ will notice that the door is bolted and she canít move it. Report your findings to Crow, whoíll pass them along to April. Take April back on the long trip to the ghetto and talk to Roper Klacks about getting a couple of potions. Heíll give you a smoke bomb and a vial of acid, which you should take back to the Keep. Give the items to Crow and heíll fly them up to ZoŽ. Use the acid to melt the bolt off the door and then open it up. Walk out of the cell to find the guard preoccupied with another prisoner. Sneak up on him and when youíre close enough, use the focus field to hurl the smoke bomb and render him unconscious. Search his body to find the keys and use them to unlock the gate nearby. Follow the stairs down until you come across another guard and note that heís hungry. Go back up to your cell and report your new findings to Crow. As April, youíll need to get a sandwich for the guard to eat. Make the long trip to the inn and ask Benrime for a sandwich. Sheíll make one up for you and youíll have to make the return trip to the Keep. Alternative solution: Before getting a sandwich from Benrime, you can go to Roper Klacks to get a sleeping potion to put into the sandwich. This would make more sense for you to do since the guard will fall asleep after eating it. (Credit: O. Dim) Go up to the door and use the speaking tube and the guard will let you in. Head up the stairs and around the back of the spiral staircase to find a gate. Open it to find a boiler and a dumbwaiter next to it. Use the lever next to the dumbwaiter to open it and place the sandwich inside. Use the lever again to send the sandwich up to the guard, whoíll begin eating it voraciously. The game play switches back to ZoŽ, so feel free to leave the cell whenever youíre ready and go back to the guardís post. While heís asleep, use the keys to unlock the gate and sneak past him. Continue down the stairs while unlocking a couple more gates until you reach the bottom and are reunited with April. With ZoŽ in tow, go back towards the entrance and go through the small door to the left of it to enter the kitchen. Go through the next door to enter a storage area and have ZoŽ help you push the large crate up against the wall. As ZoŽ, take the rope from behind the door and then climb onto the large crate. Tie the rope onto the hook and use it to escape Friarís Keep. Follow April to the main road and then theyíll get into an argument once theyíre back inside the inn. ZoŽ will leave and Crow will become fed up with April for the way sheís acting and will take off after ZoŽ. When he finally catches up to her, ZoŽ will be inside the ghetto. Ask him for any suggestions and then about Westhouse to learn that heís in the South Gate Market. As you make your way there, ZoŽ will see that the Azadi are raiding the Journeyman Inn. Kian will threaten Benrime and while his soldiers donít find anyone in the cellar, Kian decides to check out the second floor. Youíll have to fight a couple of rebels along the way and after youíve killed them, go into Naíaneís room and heíll threaten her into taking him to see the Scorpion. Sheíll reluctantly agree to do so, but only if he lets her, Benrime and the shipment go. ZoŽ is on the other side of the inn, so continue forth to the market. Once youíre there, run around near the lumbering beast and Crow will call you over. Heís behind the womanís stand with Brian standing nearby. Talking to Brian will have you end up going to the Dark Peopleís city in an airship that heís loaning from a friend that owed him a favor. Crow is none too thrilled about the idea of a bird without wings as ZoŽ and Brian share a laugh at his expense. As the airship sails toward the city, Brian and ZoŽ will begin to talk so that ZoŽ can learn more about the man and what life was like for Arcadia before the Azadi came. After youíre done, go through the door behind ZoŽ to go onto the next chapter. Chapter 9 Ė All That We See or SeemÖ: Simply follow the guide down to the library where youíll find the White Dragon sitting at a desk. Sheíll realize that youíre there and start a conversation with ZoŽ that results in her ďwaking upĒ from whatever she may be dreaming. Iím still confused about ZoŽís role and her talents as ZoŽ is whisked away to another far off land. Chapter 10 Ė Crossroads: Follow the path laid out for you until you see a sequence where ZoŽ spots something going on between someone who she thinks is April and another person. The perspective will then change to April where is she seen talking with a man. Go past the guy after he walks away and climb up the ladder. Cross the bridge and head down the stairs. Thereís a small staircase behind the house so follow it down and head towards the ramps to initiate a conversation between April and a woman named Kara. After youíre done, walk up the ramp in front of April and then take the ramp down thatís off to the left. At the bottom, hang a right and talk to Naíane. Once the conversation is over, go past her and walk down the path to the left. Cross the main area to a dock leading upwards to see a sequence where April encounters a mysterious stranger. Youíll see that Kian has now arrived at the swamp and from your present location, go forward and go right down the narrow staircase. Go to where you found Naíane with April and talk to her. Go to where April is and watch as the pieces of the puzzle become connected. Kian is the mysterious stranger that ZoŽ and April both saw and after Kian talks to April about his newfound revelation, a couple of airships appear in the sky and Azadi soldiers rappel down to the ground. Commander Vamon makes an appearance and more events ensue. You can choose whichever dialogue choice you want, but in the end, April is stabbed in the stomach and is presumably dead after she falls into the water below. Weíll go back to ZoŽ who looks on in shock when she is suddenly grabbed from behind. Youíll see that Brynn and Chawan have found her and are now seeking refuge in one of the shacks. Chawan tells ZoŽ that she needs to fall asleep again and in order to do that, Brynn grabs a pouch and Chawan tosses its contents into the fire. ZoŽ eventually breathes in the fumes and she begins to fall asleep when she suddenly disappears. The sequence ends as Brynn barges out into the open and attacks the soldiers. Chapter 11 Ė Faith: ZoŽ awakes insides of Damienís apartment, but Damien is nowhere to be found. You will see that thereís a message waiting on the console. Play it to learn that itís from Damien and that WATIcorp has found the worm. Theyíll be able to trace it back to him, so ZoŽ needs to leave. There is a change of clothes in the bathroom on the other side of the room, so get changed and exit the apartment. ZoŽ will board a scramjet bound for Saint Petersburg, Russia and sheíll then hop aboard a taxi to reach her next destination. When you arrive at the building, go to the right and through the open gate. There is a vehicle parked here so go along the right side until ZoŽ focuses on a small panel near the mirror. Use the lock pick to open it and youíll have another lock pick puzzle to deal with. Once itís unlocked and opened, use the mobile to activate the vehicle and watch as it takes off in reverse. Itíll slam into some junk piled behind it but itís a good thing because itíll allow ZoŽ to reach the fire escape. Climb up onto the fire escape and then up the long ladder to reach the roof. Youíll see a security robot patrolling the area, so when itís moving away, trail it until you reach a ladder along the right side. Climb up and head down the walkway until ZoŽ finds that the K can be pushed off. Do so and watch as it crashes through a skylight. Be careful as you climb back down because the robot is still around and once it has moved on again, run down to the broken skylight and jump down. Follow the catwalks to the right until you reach a set of stairs and follow them to a ladder to continue your journey downward. On the floor, go around the assembly line and on the wall is a panel that routes the power to this place. Open the panel and press the switch to turn the power on. Go back around the assembly line and into the control room. Use the right panel to move the winch all the way up and all the way left and then use the left panel to lower it to the floor. Go back to the hook and latch it onto the grate before raising the winch back up. Itíll raise the grate out of the floor, allowing ZoŽ to jump into the shaft to the floor below. Once youíre in the underground room, walk over to the desk and open the drawer to find a small key. Use the key to unlock the left locker behind you to reveal an access card. Swipe the card through the reader next to the door on the other side of the room and enter. Press the switch on the next panel to enter the bedroom and take the data cube from the dollhouse. Go back out into the main room and use the data cube on the console on the left side of the desk. Watch the movie and youíll get a better idea of whatís going on. After youíre done, itís time to leave. Go to the glass doors and swipe the card through the reader to open them. Go upstairs and head back over to the control room. Youíll see a green light just outside of it, and underneath it is a door with a card reader. Swipe the card and go through the next set of doors to see the outside world once again. Use the card on the reader to unlock the large gate and hop in the taxi to go home to Casablanca. Chapter 12 Ė Reversal: From the taxi stand, simply go back to ZoŽís apartment. Sheíll collapse on her bed and begin to cry. If you put Wonkers back together, heíll hop on the bed to let ZoŽ know that she has a visitor. The visitor asked him a lot of questions that he couldnít answer and theyíre outside on the balcony. The visitor is none other than Helena Chang, and she knows about everything that has been going on since she had placed a bug on ZoŽ. More gaps are filled in and ZoŽís about to be hooked up to a Dreamer once again. Chapter 13 Ė The Longest Journey: Run towards the house and itíll open up for ZoŽ. Run up the stairs and watch the sequences. ZoŽ will convince Faith to move on and youíd think that everything will be fine now, but youíre far from the truth. The game is almost over, so hold tight. Conclusion Ė Dreamfall: Youíll see that things have come full circle as we come back to the scene where ZoŽ is in a coma with her dad sitting by the bed. Reza miraculously appears, but an apparition of ZoŽ warns her dad that he isnít who he thinks he is. Watch the rest of the scenes and the game will come to an end as the credits begin to roll. After the credits are over, a little scene plays. Basically it says '1933: Tibet' and it has Brian Westhouse struggling up a mountainside in the middle of a blizzard. He falls over and as he's lying face down the camera pans back to the back of someoneís head. It turns around and it's Cortez from the first game. He says something like 'This isn't the end' or something similar (I can't remember because at the time I was focusing too much on how awful the voice actor was). Then they keep walking. It's not terribly interesting but it suggests that Cortez may have known something and that Brian Westhouse may be more important than you think (I'm guessing it was he who killed the White of the Draic Kin. It was only when I went onto the Dreamfall forum that I considered the possibility it might have been someone else). (Credit: J.

You know who you are as I credited you where I added in your contributions. Funcom Ė Thanks for yet another fulfilling adventure. I canít wait to see the conclusion, and I hope that you guys will be smart enough not to include any combat segments, or at least take the combat system back to the drawing board as I believe that it was the weakest part of the entire game.
