I am having trouble contacting Prudence Rutherford-she is at her 'quiet place' ! I imagine this sequence is essential to proceed.
Is timing important ? At what time is she available ?
Anyone help,please.

If I recall, Prudence was a little difficult to contact for me as well. I continued looking around and kept going back to call her, eventually she was "available". The W/t even states that she may not be available until "later".

A lot of people have had trouble contacting Prudence--you will eventually have to talk to her in order to finish the game, but you can play on for a while.

No-one seems to know exactly what triggers her answering that phone. It seems to me that I remember there is only one of the phones you can reach her on. I'd just keep trying at various times and places...

Jenny, seems to me that one "problem" with ND games is usually that you need to follow certain paths to "trigger" things. Often people just aren't there when they are supposed to be (regardless of changing the time). I found with Scarlet Hand that you could do things out of sequence, or continue on, more than with other games. I usually follow a W/t and I got a little stuck at times in this one with things not happening when they "should", so decided to leave that bit and try a different angle. It is a very good game. lol

I had more trouble with finding people in Scarlet Hand than in any other game too...

Am encouraged by your replies,folks. I began to think it was just me !!
Have already by-passed:
'Ghost Dogs'- couldn't find the 'birds. (no change there, then!)
'Tuned for Danger'-never any response from the Props.Room-which effectively stalls the game.
Must say this is off-putting in N.D. games unless you have infinite patience..how many of us have ?

Have to keep trying I suppose.

Yep,
sometimes I wish that darn phone could be thrown off a cliff! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="tongue.gif" />
I loved this game though, I was able to play with my nephews and nieces and they learned alot about the ancient cultures.(I wouldn't tell them I did too!)
Patience is needed in a lot of adventure games, as you must have all the pieces in place before continuing...ah the life of a detective

Hallo again Master Detective MaG,
Chose Junior 'Tec this time thinking it may help !
Not doing so bas,I suppose,with 'Scarlet Hand'. Have got as far as moving the stone at the Monolith. Chose the w/t by Norma & Linda. Started fom scratch again and have made progress. STILL cannot raise Chaco Canyon or Rutherford so am pressing on regardless. What else can I do ?
A pity about the earlier games and I think Herinteractive are being a bit harsh on the clues.

I only plyed the senior level - so I don't know what happens at Jr. level.

Be sure that you have called Franklin Rose at the hotel and talked about prudence.
Be sure that you have checked everything on Henrik's desk at the museum and then call Chaco Canyon.
Have talked to the smugglers using the Ham radio?

I don't think you can continue with the monolith if you don't have all of the keys.

I remember there was a "timed" sequence in Scarlet Hand after you picked up a certain "disk" lol I kept dropping it ..... crash ... and had to have a "second chance" (and 10th chance!!!). This got very frustating, so I thought I would forget that bit for a while and kept going with other things. Next time I got stuck, went back and picked up the "disk" again and no trouble getting through that bit, I seemed to get a lot more time with that sequence after I did a few other things for some reason. laugh Also recall having problems getting a parcel delivered, kept having to go there numerous times, after going elsewhere, before it actually turned up. lol I was playing Senior level, with a W/thru.

Hi Ron, lol, you're name is very familiar, I just answered you on another forum as well. My name is a little different, but still contains "Ryd" in it. You'll get a more adult audience here. wink I've answered you on both forums. laugh

Sometimes the triggers surely don't make sense, like calling Prudence. To trigger Nancy to be able to call Prudence, make sure you read the magazine in Joanna's room on the table, there's an article about Prudence. And look closely at the plaques beside her door leading in, there will be a name plate for her organiztion.

Also before you can call Prudence you'll have to find some of the other keys first, I'm not sure why, but it seems you have to uncover them in sequence (no pattern to the sequence unravelled, besides talking to other gamers). Look at Henrik's disc again and pay special attention to the Notes icon. If you haven't looked for the "West" key, now's the time to do it.

I was only able to talk to Prudence using the hotel room phone.

To all Moderators & Others.
Stand Easy ! Ron has completed 'Scarlet Hand' (Cheers off-stage !)
Pressed on despite having heard Prudence's message a few dozen times (familiar ?)
Completed the Temple puzzles and THEN went back (hotel) to talk to F.Rose.He then tals to Prudence-presto !
