So many choices...what do the rest of you think? I personally say we should try the attic. It wouldn't take that long to search the attic, would it?

Sure. Let's keep going if you want to. WE are going to eventually visit every place there is to visit, so why not make the best of it? ;)

You reach the Southwest corner of the roof then turn carefully to the East along the front (south-side) of the mansion.  You pass five large ornate stone structures along the front of the mansion and continue walking East until you reach the Southeast corner.  You turn again and head North toward the tower.  The catwalk narrows around the tower and you carefully proceed.  On the North side of the tower is a single wooden door.

You can attempt to open the door or head West along the catwalk to the trap door were you started.

You inspect the stone structures very carefully.  They appear to be more for design than structure.  Nothing peculiar about them.

What do these structures look like? Are they like eaves above windows, or what?

You may at this time try opening the door to the attic on the West side of the mansion or opening the door on the North side of the tower.  >-|

So? We have a key, yes? So lets try the key in the doors IF they are locked. You won't know until we try.

Both doors appear to be unlocked.  Where would you like to go first?

Must be pretty big. I think Pete might be lost, because its been quite a while we've been standing here on the roof waiting to go into the attic. Well I just hope it doesn't start to rain...

The Attic

The small oak door to the attic creaks open.  Inside is a large dark, damp, and dusty attic space with a few tables and shelves that hold a collection of nautical items including the following:

Brass port and starboard lanterns (with red and green lenses)
Wooden ship's wheel with brass center
Small wooden chest with metal studs
Brass ship's clock
Lead pipe
Marine sextant in mahogany box
Large fishing net hanging from the ceiling
Iron cannon (without wooden base) - no cannon balls
Large wooden sea chest
Small wooden ship replica labelled, "Barbep 1847"
Three glass ball buoys
Small pile of old wood

Interesting collection here !!!

There are severa objects that I would like to investigate in depth !!!

First the Lead pipe. Are there any specific markings on each end or any fingerprints ???

Could we open the Small wooden chest with metal studs and the Large wooden sea chest ???

Can we look inside the Iron cannon ??

The wooden ship replica seems interesting !!!! it has a 4 digit number. Can we open something inside the boat ?? I am sure that number means something !!!

This is not the first mystery to see the Barbep, who sank in 1847. Who's wreckage was discovered by Phes and Blackbeard, who  brought up the items (possibly) from the wreckage.

Are these nautical things from that wreckage?

In any case, this was a big clue on the Train, where Bloody Jay was the murderer. And Akkhraziel figured it out. Perhaps the key would open the chests?

The pipe is covered in dust.  It appears that it has not been picked up for some time.

Could we open the Small wooden chest with metal studs and the Large wooden sea chest ???

The small wooden chest has no lock.  You open it and find a small newspaper clipping (see below) and a silver key. The large sea chest is locked with a heavy padlock.

Can we look inside the Iron cannon ??

Yes, some rust, but nothing inside.

The wooden ship replica seems interesting !!!! it has a 4 digit number. Can we open something inside the boat ?? I am sure that number means something !!!

You can attempt to break/smash it.  The ship has no compartments or anything to open.

History of the Barbep

Inside the small wooden box is a yellow newspaper clipping that reads the following:

According to the 1846 treaty, Great Britain was to relinquish all naval control over the coast and order British ships to return to England.  One such ship, the Barbep, captained by Abraham Wallace, was one of the last British ships in the Northwest American territory.  It was rumored that Wallace disobeyed orders and was bound for Portland to meet with the Assistant Governor of the Humson Bay Company to arrange a “secret deal” that would help maintain a prosperous financial arrangement between Great Britain and the company.  Unfortunately for the crew of the Barbep, the Oregon coast was hit by one of the most treacherous storms in the fall of 1847.  Supposedly laden with gold to purchase furs, wheat, and other valuables from Northwest America, the ship hit a jagged rock near Point Heceta where it sank without any survivors.

Years later, the ship had been discovered by two local treasure hunters in the early 80s.  Although a few artifacts were brought up, the gold was never found.

This silver key. I'd like to see if it works on the padlock. Also, when we make it back down, I'd like to try it at the locked bedroom door and the locked gate down below the kitchen.

Also, forgive my ignorance. Have we yet established how Mr. Crowley made his fortune? Perhaps those two treasure hunters were not the first to dive on the wreckage?

The silver key does not unlock the old sea chest.
