On the trail of the undead . . . 

Your adventure begins at the grave of your brother Quinccy Morris. Watch 
the first few scenes carefully. You'll learn about the mysterious letter you 
received from a Romanian priest, gain entrance into London's exclusive 
Hades Club and have a fitful night of sleep. Then it's time for you to take 

When your investigation begins, you're inside your home in Netting Hill. 
For the rest ot your adventure, you'll travel from location to location in 
search of information which may lead you to Dracula* At each location, 
you'll exit your carriage, enter through a door and see a video sequence. 
When you've watched the video as many times as you want, you'll then 
return to the street, where a carriage awaits to take you to your next location. 
The path you choose is up to you! 


Searching for dues 

To gather clues in your search for Dracula, you can travel to as many as 
thirteen different locations. At each location, you can choose to enter or to 
go someplace else. Use the ! )-Pad to move the red arrow to the door ot the 
place you're visiting or to the carriage, (At the cemetary, place the arrow on 
the cemetary gate; at the newsstand, place it on the newsstand itself.) Then 
press the A-Button to enter your selection. 

When you enter a location, you'll automatically see a video sequence that 
may (or may not!) reveal important information about strange events taking 
place in London, or about key characters. Before you leave, rewatch these 
video clips as many times as you want by pressing the A-Button. 

Note: Make sure you’ve examined each scene carefully before you 
leave. Because once you leave, circumstances change, and you 
won’t be able to return and see the same scene. 

Throughout your investigation, you’ll also make use of the following buttons 
located at the bottom of the screen: 

L Journal 

2. Pocket Watch 

3. Satchel 

4. London Map 

5. Dr. Van Helsing's Help Screen 

6. Save Y our AdvenCure — CD Opti ons S creen 


Using your journal address book 

You’ll need your journal address book to make your way around London. 

U se the arrows at the bottom of the screen to scroll through your addresses. 
Remember that you can only visit locations whose addresses you know. As 
vour adventure progresses you may leam new addresses. These will be 
entered automatically in your journal. 

Making journal entries 

You may find it helpful to keep track of your encounters in your journal If a 
scene is significant, your journal will show an open page and a pen. To make 
an entry, use the red arrow and die A "-Button to select the pen. Make sure you do 
this before you leave a location. The date, time and a summary of the scene 
will be entered in your journal for you to refer back to whenever you want. 

You can also store newspaper clippings in your journal. Just click on the pen 
in your journal after buying a newspaper at the newsstand. Your journal will 
record the day’s headlines for future reference. Then click on the headline to 
read die article whenever you want, or click the Speaker Button to listen to it. 

Time is precious . .. 

. . , especially since you’ve only got four days and five nights to complete 
your mission. Use the Pocket Watch Screen to keep careful track of the time 
and date during your adventure. Even though a scene may only take a few 
seconds to watch, it may take minutes or hours in the time of the adventure. 

Remember that the time of day and the passage of time will effect what 
happens at each location. People aren't apt to speak to you at 3 a.m. And il 
you show up at 4 p.m. for a funeral service scheduled for 10—11 a.m., you’ll 
miss the service. Also, every time you return to a scene after time has passed, 
different events will occur. 

If you’re impatient, or if you want to meet someone at a later time, you can 
use the Pocket Watch Screen to advance time. To make time pass, click the 
“Pass Time” button with the A-Button, But remember: you can only move 
time forward, not backward! 


Store important items in your satchel ... 

Sound Button 

During your adventure, you'll come across books, letters, crosses and other 
important items. You can store these items in your satchel To open your 
satchel, use the red arrow and A-BLitton to select the Satchel Button at the 
bottom of the main screen. To hear a description of any selected item, click 
on the Sound Button in the upper left comer of the screen with the A- 

It is critical to place items in your satchel “At Hand” if you want to 
use them in a particular location. In fact, before you visit any 
location, it is crucial that you take a few moments to consider what 
item you may need to have At Hand, 

For instance, if you go to the Telegraph Office to send a telegram, you must 
have the recipient's address At Hand on a calling card or other item. If you 
don't, you won't be able to send the telegram. Or, if a young lady asks you 
to deliver a note to her fiance, the note will never be delivered if you don't 
have it At Hand. 

To put an item At Hand, use the read arrow and A-Button to select it. The 
item will flash. Then click on the empty box to the light of open hand. The 
hand will close when the item is At Hand. 

After each scene, you may want to check your satchel to see if you’ve 
received a new item. If you have, it will appear in the IN Box. To move 
the new item into your satchel, use the red arrow and A-Button to select it 
(the item will flash). Then select an empty box below with the A-Button 
and the item will appear in that box. Use the same procedure to move items 
in your satchel, or to remove them by placing them in the OUT Box. 


London Map 

The London Map tells you the distance and travel dine between any two of 
the 8 neighborhoods where your adventure takes place. Just move the red 
arrow to a neighborhood you want to visit and use the A-Button to select it. 
Then select a second neighborhood to find out how long it will take to travel 
between the two. 

Get help from Dr.Van Helsing 

Dr, Van Helsing is your best ally, and an expert, on vampires. Click on his 
picture to see a series of buttons representing various game features. Select a 
button with the red arrow and A-Button and Dr. Van Helsing will give you a 
complete explanation. 


Save now, continue later 

You can save your adventure and continue later by selecting this button. On 
the Save Screen, you’ll see the following options: 


start a new adventure 


load a previous adventure 


save your current adventure to the internal Memory. You 
can save up to eight games at a time, if you have room in 
your Sega CD memory. 


quits your game in progress 

Important: If your Sega CD memory is full of non-Dracula saved 
games, delete one or more previously saved games to make room 
for your Dracula game. If you don’t delete a saved game before 
you begin, you won’t be able to save your Dracula game. 


Getting around London by carriage 

As a proper gentleman, you always travel by horse-drawn carnage. You can 
find carriages at. any location. When you enter a carriage by selecting it with 
the A-Button, the address book in your journal will open automatically. Use 
the red arrow to select a destination, then press the A-B utxon to enter your 
selection. Then use the red arrow and A-Button to select die Confirm 
Selection Button at the bottom left of the screen. Select the Door Button on 
the bottom of the screen, or press the C-Button, to exit the carriage, 

“To sleep, perchance to dream . ..** 

Your adventure is veiy taxing, so it's important to get plenty oi sleep. II you 
go two full days without sleeping, you’ll tall asleep wherever you are. With 
Dracula on the loose, falling asleep in, the wrong place could be deadly! 

To deep, take your carriage home, if you’ve been awake more than eight 
hours, the Bed Button will be lit. Use the red arrow and A-Button to select 
the Bed Button and go to sleep. How long you sleep depends on how long 
you’ve been awake: 

Number of Hours Awake 

Number or Honrs Vo u’ II Sleep 

0-23 5 

24-35 8 

36-47 10 

48 15 

Remember that when you sleep, your dreams or nightmares — some¬ 
times reveal the meaning of clues or events. 


“Telegram for Mr. Morris . . .” 

Valuable information can come via telegram when you least expect it. If you 
return home and the Telegram Button is lit, you’ve received a telegram. 
Select, the Telegram Button with the A-Button, then select the Read Button 
to read your correspondence. 

Some words of advice 

Time is of the essence! If you don't End Dracula, he could harm the 
ones you love. 

Don’t forget to sleep. Being rested and alert will keep you alive! 

If a location turns out to he a dead end, try returning at a different time, 
or with a different object At Hand. 

The daily newspaper can contain valuable information. ' fake a trip to 
the newsstand and pick tip a paper every day. 

Reading your journal can often reveal clues that you may have missed in 
a video .sequence. Refer to your journal often.
