I am trying to decipher some runes on a stone that I got in one of the rooms in the museum. I know that they are Hungarian Runes and that I need to use the book in Professors Hunts office.

I need to decipher these runes and enter them onto a piece of paper. I get the following in my research but this does not seem to work. I am stuck for the moment. A gentle nudge and not a direct hint would help.

S
P
O
I
L
E
R
B
E
L
O
W


For the top row I get:
E 28, N68

Bottom Row:
OINIAV

I know the book says that the runes alternate from left to right and from right to left so that might have something to do with it.

This is after you get a certain something in a certain room. I am glad you are keeping me company as I am enjoying this game so much. According to the book the runes are written in a certain style in which they alternate from left to right and right to left.

I can't get in any rooms I've looked over everything a hundred times and can find no keys to locked doors .Been up and down the stairs a million times. What am I suppose to do to move on? Diane

Hello sami5901:

Did you read all the letters and the newspaper on your desk located in your office especially one by a Dr Smythe? You will need to call him and ask him for more information. You need to find a phone but only the director of the museum has use of a phone. But his office is locked and you will need to find a way to get in.

Good advice, also talk to the guard. He might be helpful, if given the right reason. wink

As Laura has found it may be problems caused by the use of having antialiasing on.

I used the Hungarian Runes, I think you read one line from left to right - then the next line from right to left.

I came up with E 820 and N 860

Then I had O D N D A V - reading in reverse
V A D N D O I wonder if the numbers could be
E 82 and then N 86 I didn't think of ignoring the zeros. also I will re-check the I vs the D for the cross looking symbol. Oops it is an I - going back to retry.

You will need some information to fill out a form on the secretarys desk near the directors office. You will need to find a specific item number and what storeroom it is located in. You will find what storeroom in the guards inventory book and the item number somwhere in the directors office. The item you are looking for information on is a black sculpture that arrived in the museum.

If you need further help---
You also need the stamper on the desk. You need to use this on the form on the secretarys desk outside. You need to fill in information on a black sculpture located in room D. You will find the item number in a paper in the trashcan. You will find this paper in a box on the secretarys desk.

Hello Lundar!

Can you send me your save games from Agon?

I am stuck to often and it is not fun for me to play further on without a walkthrough.

But your save games can help me a lot and then I will have fun with playing without any bigger interruption.


I always play adventure games only with a walkthrough, and only then I have much fun.

Please have understanding for that.

Please read also this thread for my exact problems:


Friendly Greetings from

Moe Perry

Hello MoePerry:

Since I have finished the episode save games wont work. In this game, once you have finished the episode it will not allow you to get back into the game until you get the next episode. This game does not seem to use save games as in other games. I provided hints to help you with the keys above, in the topic titled, HINTS FOR THE KEYS!

Hello Lundar!

Thank you so much bravo

This was really interactive puzzle solving and was fun to write with you and play at the same time the game.

What a wunderfull feeling! <img border="0" alt="[talky]" title="" src="graemlins/talky.gif" /> <img border="0" alt="woozy" title="" src="graemlins/woozy.gif" />

I could not play the board game at the end from Agon, is this correct?

Hello MoePerry and sami5901 wave

I am happy that Laura and I were able to help you with clues in solving some of the puzzles in AGON. I am glad that you both were able to enjoy the game and complete it. I am also eagerly anxious to play the second episode. Episodes are supposed to be released ever other month. So the next one should be in November if everything goes well. MoePerry, board games will not appear until the second episode.

Have an excellent weekend!

You need to get the matches that are located in the directors office on the mantleplace. Use the matches to light the lamp.

Your supposed to click the stamper on the form which should automatically put the date on there for you. The only information you need to enter is the item number and the storage room it is located in.

You are not entering the correct information then. You need to enter storage room D as well as the correct item number referring the black sculpture which you will find in the paper that was thrown in the trash can in the directors room.

There should be some keys in the cabinet over the guard. They should have fallen to the bottem of that cabinet and you will need to rearrange them in the correct slots.

In the cabinet near the guard there should be some keys located there. It should have shown a scene where you bump into the key cabinet and the keys fall down inside. Are you not seeing the keys at the bottom edge of the cabinet on the wall?

No Lundar. I bumped into the briefcase on the floor and I heard the keys fall but I can't see any keys on the bottom. This is very strange. I saw the cabinet shake so I know the keys fell.

The keys are inside the cabinet, near the bottom. In the graphics options do you have antialiasing set to on or off, there are reported problems if you have it on. You must turn it off if it is on. You may have missed doing something else before or this could be a bug if that does not work.

Spoiler for keys puzzle

Can someone help me with the keys puzzle? I'm stumped! I think the green ribbon one is Prof Moresby, the MB one is in the slot where the tape is rubbed off and the ones with the smaller keys hanging off should go to the padlocked doors?

No problem Midge. You just missed something along the way, the main things are:

-Read newspaper, letter, and other things on your desk
-Borrow key from guard to open directors office
-call Smythe on the phone in directors office, should be 55-623
-return key to guard
-come back and get whiskey from wine cabinet in secretarys office in the directors room
-Go back to talk to guard, and you should be able to offer whiskey
-go back to directors office
-complete form on secretarys desk in directors office, you need item number from paper in trash can found in directors office, plus enter storage room D. You are finding information regarding a black sculpture. Item number is 1020624, and located in storage room D.
-come back, guard should be asleep, a scene will appear where you trip over guards bag, and bang up against key cabinet
-solve key cabinet puzzle, help below
-you will get key to storage room d after you solve puzzle
-go to storage room D and fine black sculpture in the back of that room
-you will get a stone from the black sculpture with symbols on it that you need to decipher
-use book in hunts office to solve this puzzle, the symbols on the stone are hungarian runes
-to solve this puzzle, you will enter

E28, N68
VAINIO

-You need to find these exact coordinates, E28, N68 to find a specific location on the map of the wall in your office

Hi Midge,

look on your harddrive under Programs/Private Moon Studios/AGON/Data the folder SAVE and look for AGON.SAV Move the AGON.SAV some place on your
harddrive and put my saved game (AGON.SAV) in the same postition where your AGON.SAV was.

Hope you understand me,

Good luck, Sylvia wave
