Review the white paper inside Kate's case book.

Amateur clues:    If you're doing this puzzle by the clues below, the letters-numbers can be entered as the clues are decoded.

Enter the numbers using the arrows left or right of each alphabet or number.

Alphabets and numbers to enter:     A to J (no I) and 1-9

No letter or number appears more than once.

The top row contains BEF in that order. (Therefore enter BEF on top row.)

The vowels are in the middle column in the top 2 rows. (Therefore 2nd row is -A-.)


In the same column, E is above H which is above 6. (Therefore - EH6 are in the middle column in certain order)

In the same column, J is above D, which is directly above 3, which is above 1. (Therefore - JD31 are in rows 2-5.)

The fifth row contains 1, 2 and 9 in some order.

8 is before 6 in one row and 2 is after 9 in another. (So 86 and 92 in 2 rows.)

In one column G is directly below C and above 2. CG2. So 2 is at right column.

(So - JD31 of rows 2-5 are in left column and the order of row 5 is 192. H is third row middle column. C and G are in rows 2 and 3 at right column.)

The fourth row contains only odd numbers. (So - 357 in some order).

7 is before 5 in one row.

Master clues:    Enter the numbers using the arrows left or right of each alphabet or number.

Alphabets and numbers to enter:     A to J (no I) and 1-9

No letter or number appears more than once

C is below A and above H in the same column. (Therefore ACH.)

E is above D and immediately next to J.

3 is next to 4 and below G which is below D. (Therefore EDG.)

In one column, B is immediately below J and above 4 which is immediately above 6. (Therefore JBF and 46).

All three columns contain three consecutive numbers in some order (1-3, 4-6, 7-9 in some order).

The fifth row contains only even numbers, in decreasing value from left to right. (Therefore 862 is in the 5th row; and 4 and JBF are in the middle column. 4 is at 4th row with 3 at right of 4).

7 is to the left of 1. (Last row 751 and 4th row 943).

Break the code of the cipher wheel:

Go to the safehouse next door.

Review the picture taken of the 6 sets of symbols in the archives of Cathedral control center and the symbols at bottom of the paper in Kate's case notes.

Study cipher wheel from the vault. If you haven't yet, place the cipher wheel taken from the Cathedral control center glass case.



Archive symbols:    The archive symbols have 6 sets of 22 symbols total. The cipher wheel has only 5 sets of 20 symbols total. The numbers of symbols do not match.

Note that some of the sets have ending symbols that are the beginning symbols of another set. For example; the top left set ends with % and bottom right set starts with %.

Arrange the symbols:    Enter the symbols of the archive paper on the cipher wheel. The duplicated symbols that are the end of one set and beginning of another are entered only once. This is the clue to show the sequence of the sets.

The added clue to the sequence is the set of symbols drawn on Kate's case notes. It shows what is next after the exclamation mark symbol.

The starting symbol-set is shown by an arrow (the top left set).

Click hold a symbol-wheel and drag it to the place you want it positioned.

When all symbols are correctly placed, the top and bottom arrows are released. 4 symbols are locked as a set making 5 sets.

The notation in Kate's case notes shows x8 x3 x6 x4 x7.

Read Kate's last letter to Nancy. Oh my!

Read Kate's last transmission. She's still looking for the backup. "If operation goes sideways - go to where I stood awhile in thought and listen - Harrier."

Confront Ewan:   

Zoe:     Go back to hotel. Zoe beckons to Nancy.

Zoe wants Nancy to neutralize Ewan while she gets people to scour the city for bombs.

Take the spyglass that Zoe modified to be able to talk to Nancy.

Neutralize Ewan:    Go to Cathedral control center.

Zoe tells Nancy through the modified spy glass that Alec and Moira are in the loop. They are helping to look for the bombs.

There are 4 bombs. The 4 bombs have to be found first before being neutralized since if one is turned off it will trigger the others.

Zoe wants Nancy to take Ewan out.

Thermostat:    Go to the thermostat at server room again. Let's trap Ewan.

Go to the thermostat and see that it is now password protected. Remember Ewan's code on the paper in Ewan's lair.

Press the buttons to unlock the thermostat controls.

Save game. Practice the route to the hiding place we did earlier: from the thermostat, back, back, left, forward, left and right to the main computer server recess.

For the real action:     Turn the temperature higher or lower until the alarm sounds.

Immediately hide doing the route practiced on - back up, back up, left to exit, forward, left to first aisle (B1) and right to main computer server recess.

Lock Ewan:    Once Nancy says to continue - go to the fire wall panel left of the entrance to the server room.

Open the cabinet and press button B3 (second from left). This drops the firewall on aisle 3 and locks Ewan inside.

Ewan:    Ewan says it won't stop him and that he already won.

Grab the necessary USBs and get the servers online:

Zoe tells Nancy to collect USBs from the servers. The bombs are controlled from the computers here.

The USBs have to be collected in order.

Review the server locations:

B1 is the area where the main computer server is located - from exit; first aisle at right. There are servers on the left when facing that aisle.

B2 is the area at back aisle at right. There are servers left wall and right wall when facing that aisle.

B3 is the area where Ewan is locked in and has the thermostat.

B4 is the area first aisle at left. There are servers left wall and right wall when facing that aisle.

Find the correct server:    Zoe will mention the color of the USB and the clan of the tartan on the server.

Collect USB:

Check the tartan book to recognize the tartan of that clan.

Then look for the server that has that tartan.

Check the mentioned color of the USBs in that server to see if it is the right one.



Red USB - Forbes tartan - B2, left server.

Green USB - Cameron tartan - B4 right server

Blue USB - Hay tartan - B2 left server

Yellow USB - Murray - B1 left server


Purple USB - Douglas - B4 left server



Yellow USB - Cameron - B4 right server


Green USB - Forbes - B2 left server

Orange USB - MacKenzie - B2 right server


Blue USB - Douglas - B4 left server


Purple USB - Murray - B1 left server


Red USB - Hay - B2 left server

Insert the USB to the correct ports:

Zoe says to go to the main computer server. This is the recessed area where you hid - B1 right side.

Look close at the USB ports. Zoe says to place the USBs collected on the ports.

The ports are arranged by groups. The groups are those slots connected by a line.

The USBs should be placed with no repeated colors horizontally, vertically; as well as in a group.

If the horizontal or vertical USBs have no repeated color; the bulb on the edges lights up.

I did it!

Diffuse the bomb:

Ewan opens the hidden bomb door.

Look close at the bomb control.

A set of buttons has to be pressed: small, small, medium and large. The large square is numbered.

The numbered square has to be removed in consecutive order.

Each square removed must be touching the previously removed square.

All the squares must be removed.

This is timed. There is a reset button but starting over will cause loss of time. Best to save the game before doing the puzzle and go from there.

If you disarm the bomb with ample time left, you might get an award.
