Winkie -- yes, the letter in the study was written to Catherine -- James must have found it at some point and hidden it in the desk.

My comment about "what we all did" is that if it had just been the doctor and Catherine who had hidden Robin, he would have said "what we both did" or "what we did." The inclusion of "all" implies that there were more than two people who did this thing.

A reasonable explanation -- yes, I think you can interpret events both ways, especially after Betty Lou's thalidimide discovery.

I am coming to the conclusion that the doctor has abandoned the house (for awhile I was certain he was dead) and has left a means for somebody to always automatically feed Robin.

A question -- at the end of day 2, when you go down inside the burner and see someone walking across through the grate -- could that be Robin? Or was that someone else?

I assumed that was Robin/whatever it was locked up in the basement. Did you find it odd that you could go through the furnace in the dead of night but no other time? Maybe should go have another look at that floor plan to get an idea of where that locked room might be in relation to the furnace...hmmm. I'm awful with directions and have a hard time with those types of things. It seems to me the locked room should be under the study and dining room, but where does that leave the grate in the furnace? It seemed to go in the opposite direction.

Apparently, I'm just thinking about this game too much!

smile Winkie; Don't feel bad about thinking about this game. Notice that you're on page 14 of this thread. A great many of us cussed, discussed, replayed, and then re-explained what happened. I don't know if we really solved anything, but the whole process sure was fun. Maybe that's why a bunch of us consider it a fine game.

Winkie -- I don't have much sense of direction (often a drawback in adventure games!) but I think the furnace would start out under the kitchen and then head back toward the house under the dining room.

If it was Robin we saw, there should be a grate like that somewhere in the wall in Robin's prison (don't remember if there was, and don't really want to go back in there). Wasn't there also a light on somewhere when we got to the end of the furnace? Where would the light be coming from?

I never tried to go through the furnace a second time--I was too scared! Besides, you ran out of lamp oil and your matches were limited. Didn't fancy crawling through a dark tube, even during the day!

Wasn't there a grate in/under the fireplace in the parlor?

You couldn't back into the furnace in the morning. I tried. I wanted desperately to know who was there, but my character didn't!

Bella -- yes, interesting -- somebody walks around the parlor during the one moment you are in the furnace!

But the grate was covered with wood at that point, and I don't think we looked up, we just looked straight ahead to see the person -- or am I remembering incorrectly?

If you go down the grate in the fireplace you come to a room that has a closed door: the door behind which Robin is locked in. In this room under the grate, just at the opposite side of the closed door, there is a hole in the wall. Looking through this hole, Michaels says, that here ends the furnace and here it is where he looked through last night (or something with this meaning).

Hello seagul -- and welcome to GameBoomers! welcome I obviously have to replay this part, but frankly, I'm not sure I have sufficient courage.

Ah, so what Michael saw was someone (not Robin) actually walking around in the cellar?

And you're right, Becky, the grate was covered with wood at that point, so that couldn't have been the light source anyway.

wave We are again seeing the beauty of Scratches. There's always a reasonable but not necessarily correct answer. The light source was in the basement, which is why we saw a silhouette. Perhaps that is where all the candles went, which would mean who we saw from the furnace is not what we saw at the end.....AAARRRGGGHHH!!! laugh

P.S. Has Robin grown claws, or just really long finger nails?
