Part 20: Sins of the Fathers 20: THE DEAD RISE!Part 20: THE DEAD RISE!
But why did he go to Africa, Gerde? No, its okay. Im just a little anxious. No, they havent. I just need to talk to Gabriel.
And so did Gabriel ship his Great Uncle Wolfgangs corpse back to Germany (I wouldve loved to be at the autopsy. Well, he, uh, ripped his own heart out in order to defeat a Voodoo spirit thats been leading a series of murders in New Orleans.) And of course, we still have no fucking clue where the Hounfour is.
Well, first things first, back to St. Georges.
Grace, Im home! Grace? Oh, no! Grace!
So the only obvious clue to what happened is a note on the desk so lets read that its from Malia.
Gabriel: I hope you survive long enough to get this. Tetelo knows you have the Talisman. Your life is worth nothing, my love. I fight to save you, but she controls things far more than I! She has taken Grace. Return the talisman, and leave New Orleans forever. If you dont, I cant help you. PLEASE. I cant bear to see you die. Please believe me I love you. Malia.
Aww, aint that sweet. But if Gabriel left town, what guarantee would he have that Tetelo would spare Grace, huh? HUH?! Anyway, a noise from his office startles Gabriel.
Who..whos there? I have the Talisman!
Yeah? Good for you, Ive got a headache.
You! Dont come near me! Youre dead!
Huh? Oh! Hah! That was you at the tomb? You shoulda said something!
You mean you werent dead, you son-of-a-bitch??
Do I look dead? No, dont answer that. I was searching the tomb, and when I heard someone coming, I broke the light and got in the drawer. Sorry I brained you, but I thought you were one of them.
Christ! You about killed me!
I said I was sorry. Besides, I owed you one for stealing my badge. If it makes you feel any better, I lost my wallet that day.
Your wallet. Ohhh. Iguessyoureright. We are even.
Like I said. Anyway, we shouldnt stand out here and gab; someone on the street might see us. Lets go in back and talk.
Once back in Gabriels office, Mosely lets Gabe know that his investigation has pretty much confirmed that the Cult is the Southern Illuminati: People are either scared shitless of it, or dont know it exists. He also confirms Malias note, that the cult has Grace.
Lets make a plan. What do you think we should do?
We need to find the headquarters of the Gedde cartel, rescue Grace, and dig up some concrete evidence so that I can take this straight to the FBI.
Uh-huh. Do you have any idea where their headquarters might be?
WOULD YOU MIND SHARING THIS INFORMATION WITH THE REST OF US YOU SOUTHERN-FRIED JACKASS!?
Well, you do seem to have a knack for sniffin out this Voodoo stuff. Why dont you see if you can locate it for sure? Meanwhile, Ive got some things Ive got to do. Ill meet you there later.
How will you find it?
Damn! Thats right! If only I had the tracker from my office!
I have it.
Really? Good goin! You give it to me and leave a signal device at the entrance to the headquarters.
Well, that being done, lets check the news.
Theres a schoolteacher somewhere whos damned confused.
Yeah, no kidding. So, where to go, where to go And I just noticed that Gabriels dads painting is back. Looking at it, Gabriel comments that Grace mustve bought it back herself. What a gal. Anyway, lets try talking to Willy at the Drug Store, he seems to know a little too much about what the fuck is going on, anyway.
Shit. Um. Okay, fuck it, lets go rattle Dr. Johns cage.
Assbite! Hrm. Magentia?
WHORE! Madame Cazanoux? Hey, it worked!...except the old bat isnt home. God. Damn. It. Maybe Malias butler has some information to impart?
DONKEY-FUCK! Ok, what about Grandma? We havent talked to her in awhile, maybe she has some information??
Ok, that was probably a good idea. Jesus fuck, lets just go to the park, maybe the drummers are tapping out something.
CLEAR AS FUCKING MUD!!! GAAAAAAAAAAH!!!
Ok, confession time: I had no fucking clue what the big clue to the location of the Hounfour is. I ended up looking up a walkthrough which doesnt say how you figure this out, it just tells you where it is. Big hint: there's another circle-within-a-circle involved. And you actually do get a look at it before Gabriel arrives at the bookstore for the final day. Also, we've been there a bunch.
Yeah, I dont think this game went over well in certain Nawlins circles. Anyway, we need to enter the farthest confessional.
See that thing on the upper right of the wall? Its a hole. So, naturally, Gabriel jams that snake staff into it. And it turns out that the confessional is an elevator. So we put the tracker under the little bench, and actually we better leave the staff for Mosely too, I mean, I doubt hes got one of his own.
NEXT TIME: The End of GK1!!!
