Chapter 7: George and Nico: Paris 4:

In the theatre:

George has just released Nico and we are still on the big stage in the old theater. Flap is still unconscious on stage. 

Talk to Nico by pressing your 3 key. Use the "Nico Collard" and then the "Petra" option. 

Petra is the murderess of Vernon Blier. Nico has nothing to say. So end the conversation and walk to the left to the unconscious Flap. Look at Flap with 4. Flap is an old acquaintance of Nico and George from Broken Sword 1. Examine Flap with 3. Flap carries a gun but George has no need for this. You control George and Nico will happily hops after George. Sometimes, however, Nico is annoyingly in the wrong place.  Walk to the left across the stage until just before the last seat. Then turn George over with Up so that he is standing with his back to you. Then, with Up, walk to the back wall of the stage and then, with Left, go all the way to the left.

George is now at the left rear of the stage and  a green wooden staircase goes down here.

Walk down these stairs and at the bottom of the stairs you turn George with his face towards you.

At the bottom of your screen you will see another staircase that goes down. Walk towards it with Down and then descend these stairs and we are in the:

1st cellar:

Right next to George you see a fence. Walk, with Down, forward to the end of this fence. A corridor then goes to the right. So turn George, with Right, clockwise and then walk down this corridor and continue until the end of the fence. You can then go straight on, but there is also a left turn here. So turn left. You enter a sort of storage room and you are right here under the big stage. At the bottom left of your screen you see the stage elevator. Now walk diagonally down to the bottom of the screen and then continue to the right. You then see a passage to the right, to the corridor.

In fact, George and Nico are standing right in front of that stage elevator. Against the back wall stands a large decor piece and a decor pillar. To the right of this pillar is a crate. Walk to this crate and stand in front of it. Something is on the crate. Standing in front of the crate you make sure that you see in 4 the "eye" and in 3 the "gears". Then press 4. George informs you that there is a box with Theater Grease on the crate. Press 3 and George takes a stick of Theater Grease out of the box.

Walk a little to the right and then enter the corridor with Up through the "gate". Then turn George with Up so that he shows you his back again and then walk Up further down the corridor to the end. You are then at the intersection with a transverse corridor.

Turn George with Down towards you and walk to the bottom of the screen. Then walk to the 1st door in the right wall. 

Stand directly in front of this door and open the door with 3.

Dressing room:

George and Nico are now in a dressing room. On the right side of your screen is a large dressing table with a mirror against the wall. Walk towards it and stand in front of the mirror. There is a Safe under the dressing table. Make sure that, standing in front of the safe and the mirror, you get in 4 the "eye" and in 3 the "gears". Then press 4 to look at the Safe.

George tells you that the safe is in use and that the floor under the safe is very rotten and is about to collapse.

Try to open the safe with 3. Of course this will not work. Go back outside the hall through the door.

How to get the Safe open:

Back in the corridor you go with Down to the bottom of the screen and then you walk with Up all the way to the end of this corridor until George just can't continue.

Then go up with the door to the corner door. Open the door with 3 and George and Nico go through this door and they are at the top of a staircase. 

Walk down the stairs with Down.

As soon as George has come down the stairs we hear shots and we hear a guy screaming "Stay Away" George and Nico run down the hall to a door. 

We hear shots again and we hear that guy scream "Don't come in".

George and Nico are standing in front of the door behind which we heard the guy screaming. Walk down to the bottom of the screen and then continue slightly. We are then back in the corridor at the bottom of the stairs. Turn George upwards so that he is standing with his back to you and those stairs, and then, with Up, walk forward into the corridor and go to the 1st door on the right. 

Go right in front of the door and open it with 3 and we end up in a:

Storage room:

George and Nico are inside. You see a brown metal post that supports the ceiling. Behind that post you see a cupboard on the wall. 

Walk to that cupboard and stand in front of it. It is a fuse box. Look at  the fuse box with 4.

George says that most stops are broken and that there is only 1 right stop. Turn George around and take a step forward to the metal support post. Make sure that George is looking at this pole and that you are in 3 the "gears" and in 4 have the "eye". Look at the post with 4. George suspects that we are right here under the dressing room where the safe is located and that this pole supports exactly the piece of floor where the safe is on. Press 3 and George tries to pull the pole over. That of course does not work. Stay where you are and open up your inventory. Select the "Theatrical Grease Paint" and press 3 ....... 

George tries to smear the grease paint onto the bottom of the post. But the grease paint is too old and therefore not fluid enough.

George needs a liquid lubricant. Go back to the door and go back through the corridor.

Corridor:

Walk down with down to the bottom of the screen and keep doing this and go around the corner and walk further to the back of the corridor.

George will then naturally run to the back of the corridor and he will discover a corpse there. Nico and George look at the corpse. The corpse is considerably mutilated.

The chest is completely open and smoke comes out. Examine the corpse with 3 but George doesn't want to touch the corpse

At the end of this corridor, so behind the corpse, you see a large white metal door. There is a small panel on the narrow wall, on the right next to the door. Stand straight in front of that panel. In 3 you have the "gears" and in 4 the "eye". View the panel with 4. George reports that this is a card reader, but without keys. So you need a card to open that door. Turn George over with Down and walk back down the corridor to the bottom of the screen and keep doing this until you are back in the corner. Then, continue left around the corner and walk all the way back down the corridor to the stairs. Go up the stairs with Up and up you go back through the door with 3.

Walk to the bottom of your screen and then turn George over with Left and walk up through the corridor with Up, up to the widening in the corridor. Go to the left and walk all the way with this all the way down this corridor, so always go to the bottom of your screen, until you are back at the bottom of that staircase that goes up to the left of the large stage. Go up the stairs again with Up.

Then walk up the large stage via the wooden stairs and then walk all the way to the right side of the stage, along the back wall.

Then go down the stairs again and turn George with Down towards you.

You see the high ladder that goes to the catwalks at the bottom of your screen. So walk down this ladder and enter the room through the open doors.

Stay against the wall and walk along the wall all the way up in the room all the way to the back wall

At the back left is the door to Foyer. So go to the Foyer doors and then enter the Foyer

Walk over the red carpet to the right and then continue to the left until you see the double doors in the "Red" wall. At the bottom of your screen you will see the two counters of the Coffee corner. There is an opening between the two counters through which you can walk into this coffee corner.

So walk down to this opening with Down and then go right.  Walk a little so that you have a good view of both counters. There is a cash register on the counter that is positioned lengthwise. There is a coffee cup on the floor in front of this counter. It's the coffee cup that Nico knocked over when she hid behind the counter here for that Susarro. Walk to the cup and stand in front of it so that you have the "gear" in 3. Then press 3 and George picks up the coffee cup.

Make a lubricant:

Walk back through the opening between the counters and then turn right again onto the red carpet. Continue to the right, up the steps again and through the doors into the room. Walk back down the wall and go through the open doors in the red wall again. You are back right next to the stage where that ladder to the catwalks is. Continue to the back and then go back up the stage via the stairs. Walk along the wall to the left until you see Flap again on the stage and then walk to Flap. Stand in front of Flap with George back to Flap. Then, with Down, walk to the edge of the stage, so to the bottom of the screen.

There are 3 shell-shaped lamps on the edge of the stage. It does not matter which of these 3 lamps you go to, but the best thing is to take the lamp that is right in front of Flap. Stand straight in front of this lamp with George's face facing you. View the stage lamp with 4. George tells you that the lamp emits a considerable heat. Stay in front of the lamp and open your inventory. Select the coffee cup and press 1. The coffee cup will be placed under the grease paint stick. Press 1 again and George puts the make-up in the cup. Open your inventory again and select the coffee cup that now contains the make-up. Then press 3 and.......

George uses the cup on the stage lamp and the heat of the lamp melts the make-up and George now has his lubricant.

Well, you have to go back down to the lower basement and there into that storage room again, where the fuse box and that support post are. I hope you remember the way there. Not? Shall I just take you by the hand? Turn George around and walk to the back wall of the stage. Then go to the left and  go to the next staircase. Go down this one and at the bottom of the stairs you walk until you can enter the hall to the right. Then enter that corridor to the right and follow it to the end to the transverse corridor. With Up you go to the end of the transverse corridor and then left into the corner to the door. Go through the door, down the stairs and then walk straight to the 1st door in the hallway. Go through the door and you are back in the:

Storage room: How to open the save:

Go back to the support post and make sure you have the "gear" in 3 and the "eye" in 4. Open your inventory and select the coffee cup again and press 3.

George uses the melted grease paint on the pole. 

Press 3 again and George starts shaking and pulling the post but George is not strong enough to knock the post down.

So George needs help. Stand in front of the pole and make sure that George looks at the pole. Open your inventory and select Nico Collard

In 1 you have to have the "mouth", in 2 the combine icon, in 3 the "gears" and in 4 the "eye". Press 1 and George asks Nico for help.

Together George and Nico manage to pull over that pole and this causes the piece of ceiling to collapse and the Safe to fall down. The safe falls on the floor and pops open. Stand in front of the opened safe and view the contents with 4. George tells you that there are two items in the save and that is a Pass card and a Crystal Figurine. Press 3 to take both items with the "hand grip" from the safe

Leave this room through the door and you will be back in the corridor. Follow the corridor to the bottom of the screen again and keep doing that until you are all the way back in the corridor at the corpse and the large white metal door. Go stand straight again in front of that panel, right next to the door. Open your inventory and select the "Security Swipe Card" and press 3. 

George pulls the card through the card reader and the large metal door opens.

There is a lift behind the door and the lift also opens. Nico and George step into the elevator and this takes them down to the:

Tunnel:

Walk down the elevator with Down and walk to the right side of the screen. You will then automatically end up in the tunnel. Go up through the tunnel with Up.

Almost at the end of the tunnel George and Nico discover a stone tile with a symbol on it. George and Nico talk about this stone. You can view the stone with 4 and you can try to see if George wants to pick it up, but he doesn't want that. So walk further through the tunnel and you will come into the:

The Crystal Cave: The Omega Stone

Watch a beautiful cave. You see the "bridge" on which George and Nico now stand and you see the round Cobra platform at the end of the bridge.

You also see an object floating,  above the Cobra platform. 

Now walk to the right across the bridge. You will have to maneuver for this with almost all your arrow keys.

Continue all the way to the round Cobra platform at the end of the "bridge". George and Nico then stand for the small center circle and therefore at that floating object. The object is protected by an energy column. Nico cannot penetrate the Energy Column with her hand. Strangely enough George can do that and he does too. View the object with the "eye" in 4 and then take it with 3.

George tells Nico what the object is. Open your inventory and you will see that it is the "Omega Stone". 

SAVE YOUR GAME NOW......I shall explain way you must do this now

The following piece is very difficult to get through. You have to be very....very...very quick and use the arrow keys very accurately. One mistake and George and Nico will die. I can't really help you with this very precisely and I can't tell you exactly witch arrow keys you should use and when. But you will have to run by holding down your SHIFT key and then holding your arrow keys in whichever direction you want to go. But the strange camera positions that this game uses makes it difficult to tell you exactly which arrow key you should use at exactly what time.

Escape from the Theater:

Walk back over the bridge to the right and then continue with Up. When George and Nico almost come to that elevator (on the right next to the bridge) a cut scene will start

At the bottom of the cave we see a frightening figure and we see a few men running away in terror.

Nico shouts that Susarro and Petra are coming up with the elevator. George says there is no time to get past the elevator and he tells Nico to find a place to hide.

Nico then goes over the edge and goes hanging on the edge of the bridge, on the left side and just past the elevator

Don't wait for the elevator to come up ........... as soon as Nico walks away, press your SHIFT KEY and your ARROW KEY and Hold Down Both. Once you have control over George you must bring George to the exactly right spot......., George will also run to the left edge of the bridge, just before the elevator and in 1 you will get the "Climb down" symbol. So press your 1 key very quickly and George will also hang on the edge

NB: If you were too slow or you ran to the wrong place, George will be shot by Petra.

The right place to let George go over the edge is just before the elevator. In fact, you just have to turn George towards you and then run to the bottom of the screen to the edge of the bridge and then press your 1 key. So George should NOT run to Nico but he must stay BEFORE the elevator. It is all a matter of speed

So George and Nico both hang on the edge of the "bridge", George before the elevator and Nico past the elevator. The elevator comes up and Susarro and Petra are standing on the bridge. Now move George, with Left, "Hand over Hand" towards Nico. If George hangs next to Nico you get the "Up" symbol in 2. Your problems really start now. Press 2 and George and Nico climb up the bridge again.

Susarro sees them and calls to Petra to shoot them, but Perta's gun is won't fire

NOW YOU HAVE TO VERY VERY QUICK AND PRECISE......, run like hell into the tunnel and run through the tunnel ... Press SHIFT and your Arrow Down ..Continue to hold Shift to run and send George back through the tunnel to the elevator and make sure you stay ahead of Petra. You need to switch with your arrow keys to let George run through the tunnel without going to wrong way......

Run all the way back through the tunnel to the elevator and run into the elevator. As soon as George and Nico are back in the elevator, you have made it.

This run through the tunnel to the elevator is quite tricky and if you press the wrong arrow key once then it is over for George. I too have had to repeat this part several times, but due to the tension and speed I have really forgotten which of the arrow keys you should use to run back through the tunnel to the elevator in one smooth and continues run......and I can't help you out with a save game here because I haven't kept my Saves for this game

The elevator brings George and Nico back up to the corridor with the "smoking" corpse. Nico then blocks the elevator door to prevent the doors from closing and the elevator will go down again and she asks George if he has anything to block the elevator doors with. Walk back to the elevator and then open your inventory and select the Bottle Opener and press 3. George uses the bottle opener to block the elevator doors with it.

Save your Game here to avoid having to repeat the escape again and keep this save for when you want to play this game again in the future.

Turn George over with Down and then keep walking to the bottom of the screen and then, with Left, go around the corner and follow the corridor back to the stairs. Go up the stairs and up through the door. Go down and then left and then up until the corridor expands and then go left into the corridor. Continue until the "Red Crack" in the right corridor wall and then go to the left through the gate into the room where the make-up box is on the crate and where, on the right, the stage elevator is. Walk to the right side of your screen and then to that stage elevator. Enter the elevator. To the left of the elevator is the elevator button. Place George in the back left of the elevator and make sure he looks at the elevator button. Then press 3.

Nico also gets into the elevator and we end up on the big stage. Walk to the edge of the stage and jump down. George is then on the green carpet in front of the stage

Follow the green carpet towards the bottom of the screen to the green carpet that then goes up to the right between the rows of seats. Then follow the green carpet up and you will come to the ladder that goes down the shaft to the tunnel through which George initially entered this old theater. Walk up to the ladder and the game then continues by itself for a moment:

George and Nico escape from the theater. 

Bruno has not come outside, but an unknown guy comes up to George who says: "Sorry Mr. Stobbard, but I must take the Key"

The guy "Zaps" George unconscious with an electric device. 

Bruno and Nico find George lying unconscious on the floor. We then see Susarro and Petra standing at the opened safe.

Susarro is a little angry with George now, but he fears George too and orders Petra to kill George at all costs. We end up in:

Nico's apartment:

George comes to his positives and is greeted by Nico who says there is good news but also bad news. The good news is that George still managed to grab a certain item from that unknown guy who "zapped" him. The bad news is that that unknown guy has stolen the Crystal Artifact from George's inventory. Your talk options will now appear on the screen.

Well, use all your talk options and exhaust them all. However, save the "Omega Stone" option to last.

Nico and George and also Bruno tell that Susarro has found the location of the Temple of the Dragon, . Bruno then tells André and Nico everything he knows about the Dragon Cult, the Dragon Energy and he talks about a machine, the Armilary, with which that Dragon Energy can be focused on one specific target. André Lobineau says that Vernon Blier has only partially deciphered the Voynich manuscript.

You also get the Key of Solomon option. Use it too. 

That stolen Crystal Artifact is the Key of Solomon and Bruno tells you that it is actually a Key. The Crystal Artifact is the key for that Armillary machine in the Temple of the Dragon. Finally use the "Omega Stone" option . George says he has seen this Omega symbol before. Bruno then points him to Congo. Of course ....George has seen this Omega symbol  in the Caves of Congo. He saw a very large OMEGA door in those caves. 

When you have used all your conversation options and there is nothing left to talk about, then you close this conversation and ... we end up in:
