Head outside the church and look for Illuminati symbols.
Look for the manhole right outside the church. Each manhole has an Illuminati symbol on it which “points” in a direction through the top of the pyramid, the example below “points” straight ahead. Follow the path of Illuminati manholes.
The manholes will lead you to the dock house at the end of the largest pier in the Kingsmouth bay area.
Interact with the plaque that is surrounded by carton boxes.
Obviously the plaque contains the answer. However, if you are stuck, refer to the hint and solution below.
The clue here is the phrase “In the seat of power” inscribed on the plaque. Where is the seat of power in a town?
Where is the seat of power? Town Hall is the most likely candidate. Approach the Town Hall and head inside.
The mission will not advance, but you have come to the right place. You will need to interact with the correct painting in this room in order to advance.
Head inside and you will see several paintings on the walls, this is where the second part of the message comes into play “the navigator immortalized”, as well as the third part "In Memory of Frans Hals, who perished in light (1580 – 1666)"...
Interact with the painting of the navigator by Frans Hals. Highlighted in the image below.
WARNING! If you select the wrong painting you might get another hint which will lead to a “false” objective update, if this has happened to you, simply head to the location which matches the hint you received on the painting you examined, then return to this location and examine the correct painting to proceed with the mission. The fake locations are listed below:
There were no shortage of volunteers for the burning – Go to the Kingsmouth Volunteer Fire Dpt. located at (465,528).
No mariner would go to sea unsupplied – Go to Dufresne & Son Marine Supplies located at (432,348).
Our thoughts are dark as oil, choking as gas – Go to the Sycoil gas station located at (325,226).
A clam and a pearl – Go to the café Pam the Clam located at (295,387).
Men have seen desires and nightmares in the alley behind the diner – Go to the alley behind Susie’s diner at (387,323).
You will find three hints below, and then the solution.
The message you receive from the painting mentions “the hands of time point to truths written by kings in the words of God”.
The hands of time means you are looking for a clock, “the words of God” point to the Bible.
Check the clock in the town hall and you will see that it is stuck at 10:10. “The words of god” points to The Bible, so we are looking for a Bible verse, more specifically, Kings 1 10:10 which reads: “And she gave the king a hundred and twenty talents of gold, large quantities of spices, and precious stones. Never again were so many spices brought in as those the queen of Sheba gave to King Solomon.”
There are two clues located within this Bible quote, the first one is “King Solomon” who was considered to be a prophet, or a priest as well as a king. So head over to the priest’s house located east of the church. Go to the back and you will see a cellar entrance which just happens to be locked by a keypad. The queen of Sheba gave 120 talents of gold to King Solomon, and so the code is 120.
Use the now unlocked basement door.
Head over to the computer and use it, it will request a password, so type “hint” and press enter to receive your hint which reads as follows: “As the famous Solomon Priest once said ‘Light conquers all”
These words were spoken by a priest, so it might not have been said in English…
The password is Lux Omnia Vincit which happens to be Latin for “Light conquers all” enter the Latin phrase and press enter to unlock the computer. Select “1 – Access secure artifacts” by pressing 1 and hitting enter.
Collect each of the three artifacts from the unveiled secure vault.
