Investigation Mission – Kingsmouth
Content update 1.2 addition
Henry Hawthorne in the Kingsmouth church begins Digging Deeper. This quest is a follow-up to the Kingsmouth Code and you must complete that investigation to begin Digging Deeper. Digging Deeper is the signature quest from the 1.2 content update of the same name.
Henry lets you know that there are tunnels throughout Kingsmouth and that Priest and Fletcher built the town above… and below. You are advised by Henry to dig deeper, always deeper.
Digging Deeper: Stage 1, Find the entrance to the Illuminati Tunnels
Henry mentioned that you would hear sounds if you walk along Main Street. Stepping in the right spot gives you an audial sound and a pulse.
Need Help finding a secret door?
The quest updates to “Find a way to open the trapdoor.” You view a lock with the statement Clavis Aurea. This translates literally to “the golden key.”
Need Help Finding the Golden Key?
Updates to Enter the tunnels.
Digging Deeper: Stage 2, Explore the Tunnels
Take a left (south), then a left and a right. You will come to a set of symbols with a plaque above them
Occulus, rara avis
Need help with the doorway?
Digging Deeper: Step 3, Explore the Tomb
Welcome to the tomb of Solomon Priest! Opening the tomb reveals a lever, a symbol and a folded page. Use the folded page. You receive part 1 of a confessional. Pick up the masonic artifact. Use the lever to open the door if it closes..
The quest updates to unlock the southern door. Return to the main intersection, travel west and take a left. You will find an aged book.
A Man who seeks Enlightenment shall set himself in Motion: He shall show Appreciation for the Exertions of his Fellows, And make as a Church-Going Man does before Holy Symbols. He shall show Great Disdain for the Trappings of Old Empire, And avert his Gaze from schemes Coiled and Chaotic.
Technically, you need the NORTH door, not the South one (maybe this will be fixed before live). Head to the first intersection and go north. You will find another set of symbols and a plaque, but this time a plaque which can’t be read.
Need Help opening the door?
Digging Deeper: Step 4, Explore the southern Tunnels
You enter a library with a set of letters on the floor and a Lost Note. Beware, there are traps here. For instance, running up to the door across the letters leaves you poisoned for 10 seconds. Reading the note reveals a new clue.
To proceed, write as a Learned Man would. Look to Jerome’s Work on the two score and first Psalm, the eight part, the first Darkness.
Want to know a bit about this Jerome fellow?
Need to know the solution?
This brings you to a room with a set of organ pipes and levers. Once again, there is a note on the floor:
Should thy desires be thwarted; weep not for thyself, but for Dolandi.
You also have a visual clue that you need a part of a song:

Need the whole solution:
The Illuminati door opens!
You are now in a room with an angel, a knight, a discuss thrower and a snake.
Need the solution?
Digging Deeper: Step 5, Explore the tomb of Solomon Priest
You enter a room with a rather poor looking tomb. There is a page nearby to examine:
So, Isaac Fletcher killed Solomon Priest and assumed his role as head of the order. A third person, unnamed as yet, remained in London (aware of Fletcher’s treachery). This third person came to America following Fletcher’s demise and moved the Illuminati to New York.
