 Vampire Secrets

  • Place the coffee pot on the medical shelves on the far wall.
  • Use the “Introduction to Chemistry” book from your collection to determine the order to add the chemicals to produce the metal-eating mixture.
  • The best way to figure out the order to add is to start by eliminating the first ingredient. Based on the clues from the book, “O is not first,” and “Br is added after O” so it can’t be first either. “Do not add Cl before O or F” eliminates it. “Add F anytime after Br” also eliminates it. That leaves “H” as the first element.
  • The second element can be similarly deduced: it cannot be Cl, F, or BR so it must be “O.”
  • Because you “Do not add Cl before O or F” and you “Add F anytime after Br,” that leaves Br for the third element.
  • The fourth element must be “F” because you “Do not add Cl before O or F.” Therefore, Cl is the last element. (“Elementary, my dear Watson!”)
  • SOLUTION: H, O, BF, F, CL.
  • Before exiting the lab, click the skeleton and add the repaired bones and hand from inventory. Take the number “4” from his mouth.

  • The first drawer from front to back should be in alphabetical sequence within red tabs, green tabs, then yellow tabs.
