Part 37: Beast Within 16: Raiders of the Lost Opera!Part Sixteen: Raiders of the Lost Opera!
Okay, so its pretty fucking clear now we need to track down this Wagner opera. But Im stuck .so I had to check the walkthrough. Sorry folks, I missed some stuff at the Ludwig Museum.
Ludwigs personal notes, huh?
Ok, dude was nuttiern a fruitcake.
Uh huh. And we also missed one particular letter regarding Ludwigs cousin to a Bishop regarding his last wishes:
Grace angrily mutters about wanting to know what those last wishes were, and thats pretty much all she wrote for the Ludwig museum. And again I get stuck. Fuck fuckity fuck fuck fuck. Ok, well the next big clue I feel like a fucking jackass for missing. That Ludwig biography Grace is packing around?
The authors the guy who got access to Ludwigs diaries. So I guess we need to call the publisher now.
(Notice that Grace is reading the number from like halfway through the book. ) Well it turns out that Chapels dead, but hes got a son, and the publisher gives Grace his number. Ok, next call!
Turns out that Chaphill made an English translation, but the son wont release it. Well shit. And AGAIN I cant figure out my next move. Fuck this chapter! I hang my head in shame. So get this:
We have to find these lillies next to the church in Rittersberg, the priest comes by and gives one to Grace. We THEN have to go back to Ludwigs cross, and set the lily in the water.
Grace gives a weird mental prayer for more information and
GAHHH! Well, back to Schloss Ritter I suppose. On a hunch, I talk to Gerde.
Who is still upsettingly pleasant now. I kinda preferred the cattiness between them. However, Gerde has an idea on how to get a research permit: Write Ubergrau.
Well, Grace writes to Gabriel and includes a note for Harry about getting a research permit so she can get her hands on the diaries. And after mailing the letter
It turns out that Chaphill had a change of heart and faxed the entire translation to Grace. I dunno, I smell a rat in this.
So Ill spare you all the reading via screenshots, because I recorded the whole thing. Basically it seems that after he contracted lycanthropy, Ludwig was at a Wagner concert and something about the music almost triggered his change, so he spoke privately to Wagner about the problem. Wagner somehow devised a cure for lycanthropy involving the lost opera and a series of crystals however, Wagner died before they could actually do it. So seeing as that the diaries make it pretty clear that there *was* a lost opera, and Grace *did* promise the cute German guy at the Wagner museum to speak to him if she found evidence, I suppose we better go there.
Ol Georg is fucking stunned that Grace got her hands on the diaries.
He produces a diary of well, its not Wagner, its either a close relative or servant, he doesnt say which. At any rate it coincides perfectly with Ludwigs.
The main point is that on his deathbe-er, deathcouch, Wagner made whoever wrote the diary send a package to the King, which doubtlessly contains the fabled opera.
And the chapter comes to a close.
NEXT TIME: Gabriels Hunting Trip! (I presume.)
