See the tunnel that Philibert showed Madeleine in her dream.

Last Astronomia Magna:    Look down and pick up Book 4 of the Astronomia Magna.

In inventory, use the magnifying lens on the green book. Using the cursor, open the book and take the note.

Place the note in the journal. It talks about an underground realm that is like a purgatory.

Engraved stone wall:    Go forward to the end of the tunnel.

Take the sword and the shield from the ground. Place the shield where it is easily accessible in inventory.

I placed it alone in the transient area. SAVE GAME HERE!

Look at the engraved stone wall and see that it is the same as the 2 pieces of engraved stones of Nostradamus and Philibert. There are 2 holes on the stone wall.

Use the 2 engraved stones from inventory on the holes in the stone wall. Madeleine copies the wall.

The earthquake shakes the tunnel and the tunnel roof starts to collapse.

Immediately, open inventory and take the shield. Move forward to the other end of the tunnel with the shield automatically shielding your head.

There is a second chance given if Madeleine loses consciousness.

Climb up to the rare books room.

Scribe's room:    Go up the chateau and turn to the gallery.

See that the previous closed room is ajar. Enter the room.

See that the scribe is dead.

Examine the scribe:    Use the magnifying lens to examine the scribe.

Look close at his hand. Use the cursor to get the scribe's notebook. Look at the ink on his finger.

In inventory, use the lens on the notebook. Then use the scalpel on the notebook to get key and sheet hidden in notebook.

Use lens on his foot and then use compass to measure his foot. It is the same footprint size as the one seen by the dead guard.

Use lens on his mouth. Click on his lips again to know that he is poisoned.

Madeleine doesn't want to use the key on the chest by the bed.

Exit the room.

Nostradamus' residence:    Automatically be back home and work on the documents taken.

Celtic alphabet:    Open the journal to Philibert's notes.

See the copied words from the stone wall.

See the inscription of Philibert's stone at top left of the left page.

Use the quill on the alphabet of Philibert's stone to get TOMBE that was found in the back of that stone.

Decode the alphabet using the wheel below at left page.

Use the compass on the inner wheel to complete the circle below and get a column of alphabets at right.

If you have not touched the puzzle yet, A and the Celtic alphabet below it is already matched. Just click on the double arrows to enter it

You can use the stone's alphabets that translate to TOMBE as one guide to decode the alphabet.

The other source of known alphabets is the one from Philibert's medallion which translate to SIDH.

Enter those alphabets on the wheel by clicking on the double arrows when it is under the matching alphabet on the outer circle.

Take note of the pattern as stated by Philibert's notes: a sequence, a manipulation that is always the same.

The pattern after studying the addition of SIDH and TOMBE alphabets shows that: after entering a correct alphabet at top of the 2 circles, count clockwise (to the right) to the third Celtic alphabet and that will be the Celtic alphabet for the next alphabet on the outer wheel.

For example: If A and its Celtic A alphabet are on the top of the circles (correctly placed), the alphabet for B will be the third one to the right of the Celtic alphabet of A.

Do this until all the alphabets are entered on the right page.

Turn the inner wheel so that the Celtic alphabet matches the outer circle's alphabet.

Click the double arrow inside the wheel to enter it on the column at right.

Move to next alphabet and match based on the pattern seen as described above. Count to the third Celtic alphabet clockwise and place it under the top. Move the outer wheel to place the next alphabet at top.

Do this until all are matched. It will not enter the alphabet if it is wrong.

After decoding, Madeleine sees that they are Nostradamus' 2 quatrains.

Nostradamus:    It is night time. Report the findings to Nostradamus in his bedroom. Talk about dreams and other info.

Select any suspect you think is the murderer. He wants you to arrange his observatory.

Observatory:    Climb upstairs to the observatory.

Solar system puzzle:    Pick up the loose planets and weights from the floor below the solar system mobile by clicking once on the floor.

See the close up of the solar system mobile. They are lopsided and missing some items.

The aim of the puzzle is to place the correct items from bottom left on the mobile.

One possible solution:

Saturn:     Place 2 large weights on the left and a small weight on the right. Place ring on Saturn.

Jupiter:    Place 1 large weight and 2 medium weights on the right.

Mars:    Place 1 large weight on the left and a medium weight on the right. Add a moon to Mars.

Nostradamus talks to Madeleine. They discuss the quatrains. He will examine the destiny that Madeleine must follow. He wants Madeleine to drink Eucalyptus tea.

Eucalyptus tea:    Go down to the worktable. If you do not have water get some from the well.

Place water and a spoonful of eucalyptus tea in the cooking pot. Open the vent of the stove.

Use the receptacles of sorts on the cooking pot to get Eucalyptus tea. Click the tea on Madeleine.

Go upstairs to bed and sleep with no dreams. If no tea is drunk, Philibert will be in the dream again.

Save Game here and after each completed puzzles for possible replay for more puzzle time.

Timed puzzle 1 - Altar rings:

The scribe shows what he found on the altar facade; a glass medallion with lines inside.

The aim of the puzzle is to move the rings and position the lines to form a pentagram.

Move the rings by click-hold-move the white dots in each ring.

Once correctly done, see numbers inside 4 corners of the pentagram.

Take the glass pentagram and a cavity is seen. Take the stand with a star at the end from the cavity.

Timed puzzle 2 - Decode the Last Prophecy:

Part 1:    The numbers seen in the pentagram is placed in the Last Prophecy page in the journal.

The aim of the puzzle is to find the letters that corresponds to the numbers taken from the pentagram and see what it forms.

Open the journal to the pentagram page.

Count off the letters and include the dashes in the count.

When correctly done see the letters in red at right side of the page.

Timed puzzle 3 - Find the location of the treasure:

Talk to the scribe and ask if there are any scripts that are different from ours seen.

He mentions 'like the ones on the capitals' (columns).

Feel the 12th earthquake. Madeleine thinks that this is the 12 disasters (not the murders) that are foretold.

Part 1:    Click on the top of the first column at right wall of the chapel.

See lines on 2 horizontal rings. The rings can be turned to form Celtic alphabets.

The aim of the puzzle is to form the Celtic name of MADELEINE.

Some columns can have one or 2 alphabets that can be formed; so there can be several solutions.

Directions are based on facing the altar.
column 1 right wall front column 2 right wall rear
column 3 back wall left column 4 back wall right
column 5  left wall rear column 6 left wall front

Part 2:    If the Celtic alphabets are correctly done, the columns descend and show rods with mirrors on them.
