Go back to the room.

SAVE GAME HERE! Major decisions coming that will affect the ending of the game.

Turn off the lights using the switch and lamp. Lie down on the bed and see if you can sleep.

Angel of Death:    Kiera arrives. She is the Angel of Death.

Learn what happened to the real Kiera. Kiera was not accepted by the FBI when Lara and her separated. She slowly died. No traces of her or her signatures will be found at the FBI case reports. The real Kiera faked her conversations with Lara during the years. Diego covered for Lara and is a very good friend.

Life is about decisions. The Angel of Death asks whether Lara is ready to believe in destiny, that there are things beyond her comprehension; beyond power?

Choose between:    

1. Whoever you are, you see further that I. I will follow, I will believe.

2. No. You're like a nightmare I want to awake from. Keep your mysticism to yourself.

Next decision:

1. No. I will always rely on my reason only. On my skills.

I... I'm not sure.

2. Yes, I will believe. I want to believe.

I... I'm not sure.

The Angel of Death says - Catch the killer first and then we will talk about Max.

October 9

Prof. Schneider:

Prof. Schneider:    Talk to Prof. Schneider. He's waiting for his ride. After some discussion, Lara will take Schneider to the monastery in exchange for looking around the monastery.

Yle:    Lara was introduced to the guard Yle who can barely speak or understand English as Argo. So now she can move around freely.

Talk to Yle. Ask to help with repair. He needs nail and hammer. That is why he is using tape.

Monastery grounds:    Enter the courtyard and try to go to the back area. Schneider stops Lara. It is dangerous because of cave-ins.

There are broken statues that he wants to preserve. The monks here worship the Angel of Death. Bateman says that it is only here that there are no passages. Anywhere else the ground may cave in.

The Angel of Deaths depicted here are not from one culture but from all over; also some are 500 years to thousands of years old.

Schneider gives permission to see the statues but don't go to the crypt

Enter the crypt:

Back area:    Examine the fallen Angel of Death statue.

Entrance to crypt:    Examine the yellow gate to the crypt. See a frozen lock.

Thaw out the lock:    In inventory combine the insect spray with lighter.

State of crypt:

Fight:    See a yellow helmet on the floor behind Lara. It has Jaczek's name on it.

Check the cluttered papers.

Check the fingernail scratching by the entryway. Lara deduced where and how the fight occurred.

Symbols on sarcophagi:   

Check the sarcophagus by Lara. It has an hourglass symbol; just like the ones on the structural engineers at Mission Street. Examine the lid.

Check the next sarcophagus and see the mirror symbol. Burke has it carved on his forehead. Examine the lid.

Lara doesn't want to go the dark area of the crypt at bottom.

Yle:    Exit and go back to Yle at the monastery gate.

Give Yle the nails or hammer. Yle is done with his repairs.

Take the mason hammer and the tape from the table in front of the guard house door.

Light up the rest of the way:

Locked up:    Go back to the crypt. Continue down the walkway.

See a damaged cable. Use the tape from Yle on the damaged cable.

Hear Schneider call Lara.

Lara talks to Schneider at the gate. He locked Lara in thinking she's a spy from another company.

Light up the next passageways:    Go back to the fixed cable on the ground.

Look at the stain under it. Maybe it is blood.

Pick up another link cable above the stain. It might have been thrown out so that there is no light here.

Power up the other lights:    Go back to the light control machine.

Pull down the large handle at side of machine to turn the power off.

Use the cable from C-D to connect G-H.

4th sarcophagus:    Look close at next sarcophagus.

Look close at symbol. It is a scale. Max told Lara it is for avarice. Examine the lid.

This one has hardened mortar around the top part of the base of the sarcophagi.

Open the sarcophagus with scale symbol:

Use the hammer on the hardened mortar to remove all of them

You can hit the hardened mortar only 4 times before the roof collapses. You get another chance.

Hammer the numbered mortar shown in the picture in this sequence.

Push open the sarcophagus lid.

Locate Jaczek. He has the scale on his forehead.

The Angel of Death arrives. She is not here to take Lara - Lara has a mission to perform.

The Angel of Death still would not say what the role of Max is in the ritual. The Angel of Death is emphatic that Bateman must be stopped - The ritual must NOT be performed.

Go back to the entrance to the crypt. Lara talks to Schneider. She knows that the dig was looking for the Vita Mortis.

Lara calls Diego and asked him to research where Bateman's wife died during their honeymoon.

Diego says that Beatrice was murdered at Bob's Motel in Tijuana and buried at local cemetery.
