TSW Guides: Red Handed

In Besieged Farmlands – The Secret World

Patch 1.1 (TSW)

TSWGuides is pleased to provide this full walk through for the quest Red Handed.  Red Handed was added in the 1.1, Carter Unleased, patch.  The investigation mission continues the exploration into the past of Doctor Varias’ father.  Doctor Varias can be found in Besieged Farmlands.  As is the case with all of our TSW Guides, we use spoiler text to cover up the solutions.  Simply open the box for the step you are having problems with to receive the information needed to finish the step.

Red Handed: Step 1

“Diagnose and Treat the First patient.”  

Vancomycin – used to treat colitis (intestinal inflammation) after antibiotic treatments (this is an antibiotic)
Boric Acid – used as an antiseptic
Oxicodone – used to treat moderate to severe pain
Diazepam – relieves anxiety, muscle spasm and seizures, to control agitation and alcohol withdrawl
Thioridazine – used to treat schizophrenia and depression, in people who have ben treated with 2 other medicines which failed to help or who have experienced severe side effects
Fluoxetine – a treatment for post traumatic stress disorder
Chloroquine – steroid sparing agent for asthma
Gabapentin – for acute postoperative pain in adults or chronic neuropathic pain and fibromyalgia
Phenazone – is an analgesic (painkiller) and antipyretic (reduces fever)
Paracetamol – pain reliever and fever reducer, common for headaches, cold and flu

 

Now, with that information, it’s time to get  yourself Red Handed and treat the patients!  Enjoy your time as a battlefield orderly, no malpractice insurance required.

Treat Patient #1 - Patient #1 mild spasms in jaw muscles, breathing problems.  suspicious that it is caused by filthy blood.

Spoiler:
This is a description for tetanus.  Treat with Diazepam.

Treat Patient #2 - Patient #2 headache, nausea, fever, vomiting.  Plasmodium falciparum in blood…

Spoiler:
that’s severe malaria.  Treat with Chloroquine

Treat Patient #3 - Patient #3 Fever, chills and severe shaking, confusion and dizziness.  Small red dots on the skin, rapid breathing and heartbeat, reduced urination.  Cleaned and bandaged a nasty wound on this one, but it may have become infected.

Spoiler:
The problem seems to be the result of the operation.  Treat with vancomycin.

Examine Patient #4 Aggressive behavior, hallucinations, delusions, excessive production of saliva, fever, sweating and a sustained erection.  This is rabies and at this point I can only make the patient comfortable.

Red Hand: Step 2

“Read the doctor’s diary.”  ”Find the clue encrypted in the diary.”

decyphering this text will advance the quest
Being married to a bio-chem major helps a lot here.

 

Hint: The periodic number corresponds to a letter in the alphabet.

Spoiler:
I ASKED THE OLD DRINKERS AT THE TAVERNA ABOUT MY FATHER SOME REMEMBERED, RECALLED HE SPENT NIGHTS WITH HIS LOCAL MISTRESS THERE.  GOOD WITH A PITCHFORK, AND THAT WAS NOT ALL.  THIS WOMAN IS LONG GONE, BUT PERHAPS SOMETHING REMAINS
Hint: Head to the tavern and look for further clues
Spoiler:
In the tavern, upstairs in the room with the cat, there is a picture that you can inspect.  The picture is a woman holding a pitchfork.

Red Handed: Step 3

“Find the location mentioned in the note.”  
There are holy places here in the village.  At the holy church there is a holy man.  That holy man owns a holy book.  If you strip away the holyness from this message, the truth of my research will be revealed.

The words and the layout of the words both mean something


Spoiler:
Go to the church and see a man about a book.  Entering the church updates the message to “Decipher the clues from the note to locate the research.”  Sitting beside Hasdatean is a bible, check it out.  This appears to be a Romanian version of Jeremiah 2: 6-13

this Bible Passage is an important part of the next step

 

Spoiler:
EVERY Bible in the church opens to the same passage.  What else could it be?  Well, the quest doesn’t tell you to look at the Bible, it tells you to decipher the clue in the NOTE.  It turns out that the picture from the taverna needs to be overlaid on the bible.  Remove the word Holy from the picture and you will uncover a clue in the Bible.  That clue needs to be deciphered using the chemistry transmutation from earlier.  We have some indication that this step will be changed at some point forwards, but for now this is what it is.
ANSWER BELOW
Spoiler:
Go around the back of the church.  In the back is a mound of dirt at 896, 1223.  Uncover it to advance the quest.  I’ll be frank, I have NO IDEA how these two clues add up to a mound of dirt out back, but it advances the quest all the same.

Red Handed: Step 4

” Upload the research to your HQ.”  The password hint is:
There is a message written within us all.  My research is understanding the meaning of teh message written between 45477804 and 45481340.  The link is here, and to understand my research, you need to understand the link.
Spoiler:
hese are two strands of DNA and there is a link between them in research.  Removal of this protein leads to the disease Porphyria, which can cause pain, light sensitivity and other ailments.  Porphyria happens to also be the password!  Upload the files and you are all done.

Red Handed is not the only quest involving Doctor Varias and his father.  The senior Professor Varias was a researcher with the Red Hand (hence, Red Handed).  Both of Doctor Varias’s other quests involve the Red Hand.  Additionally, two item quests in the zone and the dungeon the Facility also relate to the material from Red Handed.
