I should also mention that the door to the dining room is nearest to Chair #1.  The chair faces the same direction as the group when entering the room (chair back is to the door).

Don't worry. I'm still here. It's just that I don't know what to do with these few leads...

Pete states, "I think we should revisit the book of poetry".

Fantastic suggestion.

I'd like to look at page 124, if you will.

Is there any scribbles? Is the page marked more than others? Anything at all?

Here's another thought. What if we took the scrabble point values for the letters? Maybe that might give us the combination? What do you think? Too far fetched?

Also, once we get done with the poem book, lets retrace our steps and make sure we haven't missed anything. Also lets try the key in the basement gate too.

Richard Cory

Darkie opens the book of poetry to page 124 to find the following poem, Richard Cory:

Whenever Richard Cory went down town,
We people on the pavement looked at him:
He was a gentleman from sole to crown,
Clean favored, and imperially slim.
And he was always quietly arrayed,
And he was always human when he talked;
But still he fluttered pulses when he said,
"Good-morning," and he glittered when he walked.

And he was rich - yes, richer than a king -
And admirably schooled in every grace;
In fine we thought that he was everything
To make us wish that we were in his place.

So on we worked, and waited for the light,
And went without the meat, and cursed the bread;
And Richard Cory, one calm summer night,
Went home and put a bullet through his head.

Also written on the bottom of the page in pencil are the numbers "0 1 1 0"

Pete reminds you that you've tried the brass key to unlock the gate.  It did not work.

Interesting. Well that tells us where RC came from... darn I thought it would be the soda... Still don't know what it means. Is it suicide?

Darkie: where did the 124 come from?

Oops, forgot about the cellar door...

The 124 came from the index that Brickster posted earlier. I asked for page numbers, and this poem, RC, was on page 124.

I am curious as to the 0110. Binary comes to mind, but I have my doubts.

What would 0 1 1 0 be in binary? Maybe if it is two letters/numbers, it could give us our missing letters?

There is a panel on the wall with switches, yes?

How many switches are there?

Good point, Darkie!  There are four switches - flip the first and last down, and the middle two up.

Ahhh!! This all makes perfect sense now! If one way doesn't work/do anything, try the reverse.

Control Panel

You flip the middle two switches of the 4-switch control panel to the upward position.  The middle two lights turn green, then all the lights flash three times.  You here a faint sound; then suddenly, the wall with chalk board slides downward revealing a metal ladder and passage through the ceiling of the room.

And you think that means you can just slack off for the rest of the mystery? ;)

Roof Top

You make your way up the metal ladder; through a trap door in the roof, up into the night sky.  You are on the North side of the mansion on a narrow catwalk along the larger middle roof-top section of the mansion.  From your vantage point, you have a view of the tall stone tower to the East and the perilous sea below.  In the tower, you see a mysterious green light blinking on and off.  The cold autumn air is chilling...  You can walk along the catwalk to the east or to the west.

Do you guys think we should head towards the tower/light to the east? Whichever way we should venture, however, we have to stay extremely alert. You'll never know what might go bump in the night...

I say lets go away from the tower. I imagine there will be a lot more interesting things in the tower, we'll be spending a lot of time on, so we'll want to end there...

Okay! Let's try going the opposite way then. But you'll never know when/where it might end...

Walking westward along the perimeter of the high shingled-roof area, you come to the Northwest corner of the mansion.  You turn carefully and continue heading South.  Along the middle of the roof, you see a small door that must lead to the attic space within the roof.  The walkway continues toward the front (southern side of the house).

You may attempt to open the attic door or continue walking South toward the front of the mansion.
