Chapter 1: Arrival
A: Get inside the House
So you have arrived at the farm. Your car is outside the gate and you are looking at
the farm house. All the buildings of the farm are situated around a large pond. If you want, you can first wander around the yard to look around here and there. But because you'll end up
everywhere during the game, I think it's better to go to the house first.
Turn left, forward and then turn to the right.
You now are looking at the big barn on the oppiste of the pond, go 2x forward and turn left.
You are now standing in front of the blue/yellow front door of the house. You hear the sound of a galloping horse.
Go forward to the front door.
Turn right and you see a bag
of cement, you cannot take it with you, but later in the game you can
Turn left again and click on the door.
Turn left and then look down
via the slanted down arrow and.......
.......... then click with your finger on the flower pot, which is on the tile path. You lift the flower pot slightly and then you see the key.
Grab the key and then click on it to store the key in your inventory. Look up again via the up arrow.
Turn right to the front door. Open your inventory and take out the "Front Door Key".
Click with the key on the key hole of the door and you will enter the farm house
B: Inside the House: Ground floor rooms
It is dimly dark in the hall. Go forward through the hall to the stairs and then zoom in, with your loupe cursor, on the white light switch.
Click on the buttons on the light switch, but the light does not turn on.
Oh yes .... that is true .... Jennifer has told in her email that she has switched off the electricity.
So zoom out again, via the magnifying cursor above, left or right next to the switch.
Then turn around. You then look back at the still open front door. On the left you see a box hanging on the wall.
Go forward 1 click and then turn left and you are standing in front of that box.
Click on the button of the box door to open the door and then click on the red switch and .... the light turns on.
Close the box door and turn around. Then look down via the down arrow.
There is a rolled-up newspaper on the floor. Get the newspaper.
You hear the gallop of a horse again. Read the "Phantom Horse Causes Accident" article. You read that the delivery van of contractor Tommy Harris has crashed because a white Horse suddenly appeared in front of his car. That white horse seemed to come out of nowhere. Click the newspaper away and an advertising poster will appear. It's an ad from "Alberth Artisans" furniture makers. Click the ad away again and get up again via the up arrow.
Turn right and now go 2 clicks forward to the stairs and .... you hear a voice that whispers everything to you.
You also hear the front door slam shut and you automatically turn around to the front door. You will now see a yellow
note hanging on the slammed front door.
So go back to the front door and click on the yellow note. "Chris" is written on the note. Read the note. It ‘s from Malcolm and he tells you that he locked the study but that he hid the key somewhere. Malcolm won't tell you where he hid the key for the study because he thinks you won't need it anyway. Store the note in your inventory.
Turn around again and go 2 clicks forward to the stairs again. However, do not go up the stairs.
On the left is the door of the sitting room and on the right the door of the study. However, you cannot open the study door.
So turn left and enter the living room.
You hear beeping. Immediately turn right and .... you see where the beeping comes from.
The telephone is placed on a small round table and it is this telephone that beeps because there is a message on the answering machine.
Zoom in on the telephone.
You will see in the display of the telephone that there are 3 messages. Click the forward arrow button and then listen to the 1st message.
You hear the contractor Tommy Harris say that his people have become a little
nervous about all the weird things that are happening on and around the farm. Harris has therefore halted construction. Harris has left a ladder that he wants to pick up once his car is repaired. Harris' car was rammed by a stray horse, and since this happened
in the farm yard, Harris will pass the repair bill on the Malcolms
Click the phone's double arrow key to listen to the next message.
The 2nd message is from Jennifer. Jennifer asks if you want to feed the cat and she tells you to make a fire to get hot water. The 3rd message is again from Harris who says that they have found a pile of old clothes under the tiled floor of the dining room. Harris put these clothes in the kitchen.
When you have listened to all these 3 messages, zoom out of the phone via the up arrow.
Turn left. You look into a deep niche that contains a piano.
You are then right in front of the piano.
2 pieces of sheet music are lying on the left, click on the sheet music.
You then see the name of the song on the sheet music: The Ash Grove.
Put the sheet music back and turn right, walk past the telephone to the big bookcase.
Open the glass doors of the cabinet and then search, carefully, on the top shelf, for the only book you can take out of the cabinet.
It's an orange book and it's titled "A
Pocket Guide to the Native Trees of the UK".
Browse through this book and you will know everything about the various tree species that grow in England. To browse through books, click with your finger on the bottom corner of the pages. Take special note of the various types of leaves, because on the basis of the leaves you will later have to be able to recognize some trees/leaves. Click on the book with your magnifying glass to close it and to place it back in the bookcase.
Close the doors of the bookcase and then turn right. You will now see the TV and the stereo system. Go to the TV/Stereo.

forward 1 click. Then turn left. You stand in front of the right sofa and look at the left sofa that is under the window. Find the down arrow

Click the manual away again and get up again via the up arrow. Turn clockwise to the fireplace. Jennifer has told you, over the phone, to make a fire in the hearth. But first you need stuff to light the fireplace. Turn around and go back to the door by TV. This is the door to

room, is the door to the kitchen. To the right is the brown wooden door to a pantry. Turn left. You will see a window and a red closet door. In the corner, to the left of the window, is a ladder. It's the ladder that Tommy Harris talked about in his phone
message. You can pick up the ladder but not take it with you, so that is of little use now.
Go forward to the window. Standing in front of the window, place the cursor in the left corner of the window sill. Your cursor then
becomes the finger. Click with your finger in the left corner of the windowsill and ... you move the loose windowsill
up and down a few times and, on the right, a photo appears, which then protrudes under the windowsill.

Branches of the Mabinogion".

surroundings in which you notice that the forest is divided into Area 1 and Area 2.
There is a description of the Mekavox Pro BC1000 grass trimmer with a separate note that reads:
"20:I, Oil in First!". The bottom letter is an explanation of how to search for water with a Hazel twig,
the so-called "Water Divining". It has a note from Malcolm suggesting this might be worth a try, rather than having a new well dug. You read that the new well should be close to the house, but not too close to the other buildings. And that the well
must be easily accessible, so close to the walkway.
Zoom out of the bulletin board when you have viewed and read all announcements.
