Unstuck at the curtains in the study

Apparently Sylvie has to go out of the study to discover that the guard is no longer standing there, before she can cut the ropes on the curtains.....

I have done everything I can think of and the guard does not go away. I am really lost at this point

I'm stuck here too. I have wax in the cap and I assume that I need to make an imprint of something. I tried on the Hospitalier ring but that doesn't work.

I have a gold key from the portrait but haven't found anywhere to put it. Is that connected?

Have you had a chance to look at the Blog Walkthrough yet? It has instructions and screenshots, so it might help.

To get to the Blog Walkthrough, just click on the Try This Game link at the top of this page, then click on the link to the Blog Walkthrough.

In this particular case, you were right--it's a ring, but it's a ring you can't get unless you've used the key, so I'm a bit confused as to what you've done and what you haven't.

Did you find a secret safe in the room and open it?

I wanted to avoid the walkthrough.

I thought someone could give me just a hint as to where the key went. I guess there's a lock I've missed.

I'm talking about the ring I've been carrying since very early in the game. I haven't found his eminence's.

Take a very close look at the painting.

thank you, apples. I would have been there 5 years from now trying to figure out what to do.

What good is the walkthrough if it doesn't say that you have to leave the room first to notice the guard is gone before you can cut the rope? Would be nice if it did.

What it says is:

Time to mail the package. Go back into the hallway.

Walk past the security guard and put the package on the mail cart.

Take the burning candle from the front table.

Combine it with the bottle cap, so you have a Cap with Wax.

Put the candle back.

Go back into the study.

Climb back up on the ladder again by clicking on the painting.

Open the safe.

Take the ring.

Combine the ring with the Cap with Wax to make a wax impression.

Put the ring back and close everything up.

Now you still need some rope. Go over to the curtains on the left.

You will notice two cords hanging down. If the text says “View of curtain from chair” and you click on it, Sylvie will climb on the chair. However, if you try to cut the cords now with the garden shears, they will be too short, so Sylvie will say, “Short rope, long fall” and refuse to cut them.

Climb back down off the chair so you are back in room view.

Walk over to the bookcase.

Move your cursor along until the text says “Place for ladder.”

Click there, and the ladder will move back from the painting to the window.

Now move your cursor along the window and you will see “View of curtain from ladder.”

Click there, and Sylvie will climb the ladder.

This time she can reach high enough, so use the garden shears twice to cut each of the cords.

Combine the two cords in your inventory.


Now if you can show me where in that passage it says to check to see if the guard has left, I would be much obliged.

You're quite right--there was a line missing from the Blog Walkthrough.
Thanks for bringing it to our attention!

The update reads:


Put the ring back and close everything up

Now go out in the hallway and take a quick look around. If the Security Guard is gone, go back in the study and proceed with finding some rope. If he's still there, you missed something (you probably need to go back and read the documents in the safe completely).
