Here us are, fresh the end of the roof access to the Museum of natural History. Exactly how Melissa knew about this enntrance gate is left up to our imagination. Not to say that roof accesses are uncommon, just that Melissa knew specifically how to exploit this one.Down the stairs and to the left, there"s a dinosaur statue leaning against the wall. This do me run the an initial time i played bloodlines. Ns was crouched down, trying to sneak my way through here, and also then I rotate to my left and there"s a fucking dinosaur through its mouth open waiting come greet me.Next come the statue, there"s a keep in mind attached to the wall.OF details interest to united state is the fact that this maintence male is leaving his secrets around. We could proceed further into the museum, but let"s check out these next hallways a tiny first, trying to find these keys.Sure enough...There"s the key to some office here in the museum.Now let"s get down to exploring this museum. To state the obvious, we"re right here to discover the Ankaran Sarcophagus, i beg your pardon is being organized here. That method that there"s a pretty heavy security presence inside the museum, due to the fact that it"s a rarely and valuable artifact. There"s likewise the reality that the sarcophagus is probably being hosted somewhere means back into the museum, behind numerous layers of security. LaCroix wants united state to traction this heist off with complete stealth. That"s not an choice here, at least for me. I would be a lot less complicated with dots in obfuscate, however we"re not playing together a Malkavian or Nosferatu.What this means is that if we"re detected by security...That"s what"ll happen.Up here, there"s supposedly $100 sit on a pterodactyl"s head. Good luck do the efforts to run on it.Killing that guard to be noisy, and it set others nearby on alert.So they need to be taken treatment of. It"s a an excellent thing their bodies disappear appropriate after they dice -- LaCroix would certainly be furious if any type of bodies continued to be on the scene.Attempting to go under these adjacent stairs sets off that gigantic dinosaur head, a loud roar that puts the adjacent guard on alert......resulting in his death.Here ~ above the floor floor, there"s a giant dinosaur skeleton ~ above display. Ns don"t remember seeing anything as cool as this in any museum I ever before visited.There"s also a cop who is suspicious the a door could be up to some illegal activity. The world is arguably far better off without him.The door he was guarding is the Museum Office.Which is just life one office. Four cubicles, four computer systems we can"t communicate with. I"m sorry for every you cubicle workers reading this. What a boring life you have to have.I imagine you all leave her prescription party lying roughly your desks, too, popping pills in ~ a moments notice to acquire you through the day.There"s a door the leads additional into the museum, yet it"s locked behind a pretty kind skillcheck.So let"s discover the soil floor a tiny more. This is the lost and found. Poor little kids that gain lost in museum -- that would have actually terrified me as a child.Three things room of keep in mind here. The first is the clock. It"s one of the few times we can tell what time that night that is.The 2nd is the computer system terminal. We"ll hack into the email first. The password is iluvgabe.

1 posted: Reminder C. MarshallJust a reminder, Dr. Anders Johansen - AKA the sarcophagus man - will be working at the museum because that the next few daya. Show him the professional courtesy we display all our guests.-CM
We very first learned around Johansen top top the Elizabeth Dane, whereby he was menioned in an e-mail as "Professor Johansen". He"s probably not below right now, through it being night, but he"d probably be a an important asset to LaCroix.
nmh.vtmThat statue on Daryl"s workstation is climb me out. Ns was functioning late the other night and also I swear I believed I saw it move. This isn"t an additional gag is it? If it is, i don"t think it"s funny.-Pam.
This sound close to the occult item indigenous a museum that Pisha wanted united state to retrieve. Concerned think the it, didn"t LaCroix mention a tiny box that was shipped with the Dane? He can have to be referring to this. Us should shot to uncover it.
mail.vtmMAV has actually detected a virus in the attachment of this message. The virus has been quarantined and a notice sent to adcxu
4 posted: thanks JJ ElmsterThose secrets you found? They"re Larry"s. I"ll phone call him you left castle in the lost and also found.
Keys are always good. We need to take them, if they"re quiet here. Now we"ll get in the sales directory. The password is griff.No sales figures. It figures.The 3rd thing of interest is this newspaper clipping, but it doesn"t tell united state anything we don"t already know.Museum Security? That should be good.I assumption: v it serves me right, no being as careful as ns should. There"s in reality a method to fall in right here from a ventilation column overhead, yet that needs we find the enntrance gate to that in a bathroom. This to be a little faster.After killing that guard, we find the basement key, just what we need. There"s a server room that we can go into, however there"s naught to find in there.Downstairs us go. If we"re walking to find the sarcophagus all over in here, it"s most likely going to it is in as far down as we can go.

Whoops.The guards were already on alert.You deserve to see that there are cameras ~ above the wall. If they spot us, an alarm go off, and if over there are an ext security safety in the area, they"ll do their way to our position. If you"re trying to execute this mission with stealth, this cameras will certainly be the bane of her existence. We deserve to turn them off by going into the protection room you saw two screenshots ago, but it"s likely that you"ll be recorded if girlfriend don"t have any dots in obfuscate.We go in there and turn them off even though we"ve taken treatment of the guards. It"s simply a boring computer interaction there is no anything extra -- no need to show it off.We"ve checked out that there space two lines. You can imagine the the red heat takes us towards wherever the sarcophagus is being stored. But let"s follow the eco-friendly line first, check out what the takes united state to.The green line ultimately takes us in the direction of this side-room. The looks choose there could be some interesting artefacts in there, maybe also that thing Pisha was looking for. Exactly how do we obtain in?We shooting our method in. Deceptively simple.And just like that, there"s the fetish statue. Pisha must be pleased, though it look at a little weird.Moving on, the green line also takes united state to a side-room v a door entrance. Shocking, ns know. We choose up this general museum key from the room.The eco-friendly path eventually meets up with the red path, counter-intuitively, yet we can"t go any further since we don"t understand the code.So we follow the red path backwards, and also we"re ultimately led to this nice tiny office. In the desk we uncover a yellow ring and also a clock -- why these would certainly be left below overnight is past me -- and also take them, and on peak of the desk we uncover a note.People certain love to leave sensitive passwords lying around in the human being of darkness. With this, we"ll head with the previously locked door.Passing a deactivated camera, we"re eventually led to an additional security room.THe life expectations of any type of security safety in the world of darkness must be quite low. We take care of him, and also by the I median take him the end to dinner, and also continue forward......but our path is blocked by these laser beams! The systems is to go back into the security room we just passed and also shut them turn off via a computer system terminal. Alternatively, girlfriend can assault an electrical panel on the wall, however that provides the beams flicker in and out. It"s less complicated to simply shut castle off. Every they perform is sound the alarm if friend touch them, they"re not sci-fi burn lasers.Continuing forward, we"re taken v a storage area, short lighting and also boxes everywhere. This have to be the place.It should--gone!?Beckett!? Beckett? What room you law here?This shouldn"t it is in surprising, involved think of it. If there"s a exploration to it is in made, Beckett will be near. I"m an archaeologist, for this reason I assumed I"d indulge in a rapid study of this Ankaran Sarcophagus everyone"s therefore riled increase about. Mine guess, from what I"ve read around it, is the it"s a mummified Mesopotamian king. I required confirmation. Go you obtain to study it at all? Oh, ns really wish ns had. All this speculation around the sarcophagus include an Antediluvian and also being a portent that Gehenna is making me cringe. These space the type of ridiculous, superstitious assumptions I came below to debunk.We"re forced into asking around what we already know of: Antediluvians? no one I recognize has ever met one, but each of the clans and their bloodlines supposedly trace their origin to an initial vampire - one Antediluvian. Part swear these grandsires quiet exist into the present. But then, Kindred and kine believe a most strange things. And Gehenna? Armageddon, doomsday, the end of every Kindred. It"s a usual facet of most mythologies - are afraid that the human being will end. Many believe Caine and also the Antediluvians will go back to consume or damage all Kindred. Ns wholeheartedly disagree. Why execute you disagree?Beckett"s pompousness is unfitting. His dispute here doesn"t actually demonstrate that Gehenna is false.

Bobbin Threadbare posted:It have to be detailed that (as any great scientist would) Beckett would later on toss his presumptions aside once the Ravnos Antediluvian climbed in India. Instead, he rededicated himself to researching means to prevent the other Antediluvians from ruining the world, and also in the one Gehenna scenario wherein that"s possible he theatre a significant role.
Humans and Kindred are simply as qualified of controlling their own damage as a deity. A self-realized Gehenna warrants much more vigilance 보다 a god-induced one, don"t girlfriend agree? such is my argument... Which so generally falls on hearing deactivated ears.The dispute that Gehenna is simply the forecast of the Kindred"s capacity for self-destruction would be a much better one, yet it"s no an dispute that Beckett makes.We have the right to ask Beckett more questions about Gehenna, but also his pet fascination, the thin-bloods. Have the right to you call me an ext about thin-bloods? Thin-bloods rarely exhibit features or strength of their clan and also many can"t Embrace. Some are even rumored to have actually reproduced. Numerous Kindred room terrified that their weak blood heralds the dissipation the every bloodline. Rather of one ignorant, reactionary response, don"t friend think? Who"s Caine? Caine is the biblical an initial Kindred and also founder the the mythological first City, Enoch - a ar where Kindred and kine coexisted. I think Caine"s a figure concocted to personify the shift from nomadic society to agrarian society. That myth, prefer most, has actually been twisted through time. Are there any kind of other signs of Gehenna? What prophecy doesn"t have actually vague, apocryphal signs? Let"s see, the usual ones cited room the appearance of thin-bloods, Caine sightings, doom, gloom, that route. This is all fascinating stuff... Exactly how long have actually you been studying Kindred lore?This bumped increase our academics stat by one. Ns don"t like any kind of of this answers, yet I"ll select the least stupid one. We"re the next evolution of human beings. Yes, I"ve heard that theory before. It absolutely seems plausible, but there"s little proof to support it. Still, it"s a better explanation 보다 a magnificent sentence because that manslaughter. Ns agree.Look at the shit eat grin. Goodbye, Beckett.The display screen fades out......and then we"re transported back downtown. LaCroix isn"t going to take it this well, yet we"ll need to wait until next time to tell him. I"m i m really sorry if this update wasn"t very good. I don"t prefer this quest, for this reason it"s tough to do it interesting.
