New York with locations

Aunt Evelyn's ApartmentEdit

[from the start]

  • Take the Bigglesworth Adventure
    • Why must it be so hard to get any work done? I wonder if I could hire another butler to counter Evelyn's butler
  • Help Bigglesworth Tidy Up
    • Oh, it's no trouble. Besides, I'd feel guilty if I let you waste an entire afternoon cleaning Dad's ceremonial daggers on your own. Watch out for that one, Bigglesworth. I think Dad said it was poisoned.
  • Talk Egypt with Evelyn

[July 1, morning]

[August 4, morning]

  • Adventure with Evelyn
    • I have just embraced a terrible idea. Oh, dear. I hate it when Aunt Evelyn gets overstimulated.
  • Nap
    • Sleep. Sleep is good. Then, when I get up, I'll clean the junk out of my closets, I swear.

[September 21, morning]

  • Help Evelyn with Party Invitations
    • Auntie, we're not inviting an entire baseball team. You know what happened last time. I vote we prioritize people who won't throw up outside my bedroom door.

Beneath New YorkEdit

[from the start]

    • This always makes me feel closer to Dad. Excuse me? Mister subway worker? Did you hear someone call out to Yarla-Golgorath just now?
  • Play Cards with the Cut-Throat Men Who Live in the Tunnels
    • It's fun to gamble with dangerous people; they're harder to read. I don't know what they taught you in prison, Three-Fingers, but it sure wasn't poker. Pay up!

[June 24, afternoon]

  • Take the Subway to Visit Felix
    • I'm sure the boy could use some company! Okay, Felix. Where has the Professor sent you to scavenge from equipment today?

[after completing The Serpent Empire Adventure (Part 1)]

  • Search for Other Raeks Artifacts
    • What are the odds that plate tectonics will try to kill me twice? These paintings on the tunnel walls seem Raeks-y... but fresh.

[if you have beaten Ahmose: The Egyptian Adventure]

  • Explore Abandoned Tunnels with Ahmose
    • Okay, it's not necessarily a step up from the museum, but at least he's getting out. Okay, remember: the most important thing to know about subway tunnels is to get to cover when you see lights moving your way.

BroadwayNew York BroadwayEdit

Central ParkNew York Central ParkEdit

[June 1, afternoon]

[from the start]

[If on Ahmose's Dream route]

  • Daydream about Ahmose
    • I really have to get that mummy out of the museum and up here. The view's amazing. Kheper, I'm begging you. I don't care how romantic the music is, stop singing.

    • I wonder if they have views like this in London... Darn it, where's an international man of action when you need him? It's lonely up here...

[If on Nigel's Dream route]

  • Daydream about Nigel
    • I guess this is more dignified than mooning around his office. I wonder if Nigel's ever been up here. Chilly, but it might make for a fun date.

[If on Sterling's Dream route]

  • Daydream about Sterling
    • I wonder what that lunatic's doing now. It's probably stupid and reckless and I wish I were there. Sadie Evans. Hm. I wonder if I could get him to change his last name to Keating instead.

  • Look out over the City
    • I can see for miles! Which way am I looking? Is that the Hudson or the East River?

    • I think this is where the Professor goes when his neighbors get too loud. Oh, God, Wagner. Cue flashbacks to childhood with Ruddy's phonograph.

Trivia Edit

  • *There is a minor spelling error in Sadie's joke to Anna regarding Professor Wolfram. The Anglicized form is thuggee or tuggee. From the Sanskrit for 'concealment' or Hindi for 'deceit', it describes a renegade cult of the goddess Kali, whose members roamed the Indian sub-continent from no later than the 14th century C.E. until they were (supposedly) wiped out in the 19th century -- all the while tricking, strangling, robbing and burying hapless travelers. (This is the origin of thug in English.)
