The Search Begins
|"My name is Noelle Saint James. I am an avid amateur historian, with my specialty being the local history of Champs Les Sims. The thesis of my book is that the delicious beverage Nectar was invented here thousands of years ago by Jean Necteaux. I require the assistance of an ambitious Sim who can interview Berthe Girard for any information concerning our history and then report to me."|
Just a normal convincing adventure. Go to the sim, have a friendly conversation and then interview her. Continue chatting her up until she hands over the information.
The Lost Library of Landgraab
|"Your interviews revealed that Admiral Landgraab was also studying the history of Nectar nearly 60 years ago and that he may have notes about what he learned. Unfortunately, Landgraab was a rampant conspiracy theorist and worrywart and his home is shut up tighter than Napoleon's tomb. Take this key to his library and try to find the papers. It should be near the front of his home. Please be careful!"|
Zoom out and find the tomb icon to lead you to Chateau du Landgraab. Time to find the lost library.
TOMB - The Lost Library of Landgraab
If you haven't done the adventure in China, then to get in, you will need to go around the back of the mansion. Follow the path up to the back door and on the right side of the path you'll see a lamp post with a hole in the ground next to it. Investigate the hole to get in.
Once you are in, take the door on the left and then the doublt door immediately to your right. This should lead to a room with a giant staircase. There is a trap on the dark spot on the floor. The best way to deal with this is to pull the statue back towards the door a couple of times, then pull it to the right to line up with the trap, and then push it onto the trap. This should deactivate it. Head over to the keystone slot and insert the keystone to open the door to the right.
Read the plaque on the wall for a clue. It will point you to a sound system in the next room. Go into the room and turn on the music to deactivate the traps in this room. Now you may loot the chest. You'll find the papers here. Before you leave, go out of this room, across to the next set of double doors into a living room and out the back of that into a somewhat round room. Grab the relic on the floor next to the table.
Deliver the papers.
|"I refuse to let Admiral Landgraab's code get the best of me. Gustave Delven is a well-known cryptanalyst. In fact, Gustave Delven deciphered the legendery Vaughan Cipher that stumped Adventurers for years! Take the Nectar Papers to Gustave Delven for translation."|
Just deliver the papers.
|"Take these papers and deciphering key to Noelle Saint James. This should give Noelle Saint James all the information need to complete the current research on Nectar. Ask Noelle Saint James to send me a copy of the finished report, will you?"|
Deliver the papers back
Landgraab I... Kidnapper?
|"I am conducting research on the disappearance of Anastasia Necteaux. It is my belief that Admiral Landgraab I had something to do with her disappearance. I would like to investigate this further, but require assistance. Please come see me if willing and able to offer assistance!"|
Just offer assistance.
The Groundskeeper's Journal
|"The former groundskeeper of the Landgraab estate, Willard Leroo, kept a journal that I believe may contain first-hand information about the disappearance of Anastasia Necteaux. Please journey to the shack, located on the grounds of the Landgraab Chateau, and recover his journal for me."|
Head back to Chateau du Landgraab once again. You're looking for a small hut behind the mansion. It's fanced in. Behind this hut you'll find stairs leading down. Go down the stairs and in the back of the basement on a table will be a heart shaped keystone. Take the keystone and head back upstairs and around to the front door of the hut. Use the keystone, go in the front door and open the chest. Take everything inside and then Deliver the journal.
The Key, Please
|"Blast! The journal is locked. It appears this won't be as easy as first thought. Willard's daughter, Manon Godard, lives in Champs Les Sims. I'm confident she has a key to this journal. Speak to her to obtain the key. Telling her it will aid the town may convince her to help."|
Befriend the sim if you haven't already and then convince her to give you the key.
A New Ring
|"By giving you the key, I'll help the town? Of course I'll help you. Oh no! I'm not one to miss an opportunity either. I will need a favor, first. My current collection of jewelry has goten old. I need something new, something fresh! Go find 2 pieces of gold and bring them to me. Hurry along now if you want the key!"|
Zoom out to the neighborhood view and find two pieces of gold and deliver them to her.
A New Ring
|"A nice band is nothing with a fantastic jewel on top. Please, find me an Amethyst and bring it to me. I'll trade the key to my father's journal for the gem."|
First, yes, same name but different quest. Second, yes, they said "with" instead of "without." Third, yes, you just did this except with Gold. So do what you just did and find some uncut Amethyst. Make sure it's uncut because if the gem is already cut, she won't take it. Once you find it, deliver it.
Here's the Key
|"You can have the key to the journal, though I'd appreciate it if Noelle Saint James would return the key and journal to me when finished with it. Sim should deliver it to Noelle Saint James as soon as possible."|
Deliver the Key.
"Excellent, I can finally open this journal. Let me see here... fascinating! It seems there was quite the ruckus many years ago. At one point some shady looking men dragged someone into the chateau. The famous James Vaughan went in to save the person who... yes, turned out to be Anastasia Necteaux.
I found this key to the estate attached to one of the pages. Landgraab was the meticulous sort, which leads me to believe he kept notes on this incident. Head to the estate and see if you can find those notes. Be careful - Landgraab was paranoid. His whole house is filled with traps and security measures."
TOMB - Chateau Du Landgraab
Head back to Chateau du Landgraab. Instead of going in the back, this time you want to go to the side of the building (fountain side) and you'll be able to go up some stairs to a sort of patio. You'll see a door leading into the building (if you head in the direction of the fountain) with a keystone slot next to it that should be glowing. Use the keystone and open the door.
Move the four statues onto the four gear tiles and then go through the other door leading out of this room. Walk down the hall and when you come to a room, take the door in front of you just slightly to the right. This should bring you back to the big staircase by the front door. Take the stairs up.
Turn left and to the left of the next set of stairs you'll find a door that leads to a room over the library. Just off of this room is a very small closet area with a standing tile. Stand on it. Leave this room back out to where the stairs are, take a left and walk past the stairs and down the hallway. You'll find three doors in this hallway and you'll want the one at the very end.
Take the vase off of the night stand and then on the left side of the room you'll see another of those small closet rooms with another tile for you to stand on. Do so.
Leave the room and walk down the hall. At the end, take a left and walk past the big staircase that you came up. You'll see a left that will take you down a narrow hallway with three dark spots (traps) in it. you can inspect and disarm/cross if you'd like or you can go a little beyond those to the white door on the left wall. If you go through this room and the next it will take you out to the other side of the traps. Either way, take a right when you come out and go through the door at the end of the hall.
In this room there's another little room hanging off the right corner with another tile in it. Stand on the tile. Now head all the way back to the two big staircases and take the one leading up.
At the top of the stairs you'll find two doors to your left. The Single white door will have a chest behind it while the double doors will have the notes you are looking for. Grab the first chest if you like, head through the double doors and loot the glowing chest for the Admiral's Orders.
Deliver the notes.
