Day 1[edit | edit source]
The Haruspex arrives in Town at the Train Station with low health and low reputation. He may loot the bodies by the train for their items and organs and then speak to the Executors who will direct him to Vlad Sr Olgimsky's home at the Lump. Approaching the nearby bonfire will cause a cutscene to play showing the Haruspex running away from an angry crowd to the nearby warehouses where he finds shelter at Notkin's warehouse.
Side Quest: “The Filthy Little Toad and the Waifs”[edit | edit source]
Notkin will inform the Haruspex that someone has betrayed his gang, the Soul-and-a-Halves. After agreeing to deal with the traitor, Notkin will tell the Haruspex where to find them. The Haruspex may also go to the northern warehouses and find Bad Grief who will also give him a quest related to the traitor.
Side Quest: “The Filthy Little Toad and the Smugglers”[edit | edit source]
This quest is given to the Haruspex by Grief. Grief will indicate where to find the person he wants the Haruspex to deal with. The person in question, a boy named Lika, is a Doghead who will be at the location marked on the map. The Haruspex may choose to let him go or kill him. Letting him go will increase reputation by 5 and the Haruspex will also receive 10 reputation from Notkin and Grief each when he returns to tell them the news. Killing Lika will reduce reputation by 10, but the Haruspex can obtain a Shmowder from the body, a Revolver and Revolver Ammo from Notkin, and Shotgun Ammo from Grief. If Haruspex refuses the Shotgun Ammo from Grief, he will receive 5 reputation instead.
Grief has more news for the Haruspex. He will mention there is an ambush waiting for a suspected murderer at the train station. Four men - two muggers and two factory men - will be waiting near the train cars where the Haruspex first arrived in town. The Haruspex may choose to kill them for a Shotgun, Shotgun Ammo, and a Knife. If the Haruspex asks about how to increase his reputation, Grief will also mention that there is an injured man at the Cemetery.
Side Quest: “The Survivor”[edit | edit source]
After speaking with the grave-keeper Grace, the Haruspex will be directed to a house in the Stone Yard to obtain blood needed for a transfusion. The house belongs to Var, who can later be traded with for Tourniquets and Bandages in exchange for blood and organs. The Haruspex will only be able to successfully perform the transfusion if his health is at least 40. The transfusion will take 30 health. Var will also invite the Haruspex to take whatever belongings he finds in Var's house. After bringing the transfusion blood back to the Cemetery, the injured man will be healed and the Haruspex's reputation will increase by 30. The Haruspex can also demand the man to hand over his Knife.
If the Haruspex refuses to help the man and instead kills him, he will lose 30 reputation. Speaking to Grace again after killing the injured man will further cause him to lose reputation by 10.
Main Quest: “The Killer of Simon, The Killer of Isidor…”[edit | edit source]

She'll also show the Haruspex how to get to his father's home.
Afterwards, the Haruspex visits Vlad Jr. He will tell the Haruspex that Grief’s lair is a good place to get bad things. Going back to the warehouses, Haruspex first talks to Notkin who mentions that someone went to see Grief earlier that day looking for him. Grief will tell the Haruspex about the Bachelor and that the visiting doctor is staying at the Stillwater. Upon arrival, Eva tells him that the Bachelor won't be back until 18:00. Once the Bachelor arrives, the Haruspex learns that the Bachelor has been investigating the deaths of Simon Kain and Isidor Burakh, and believes that they have been both killed by disease and that the Haruspex is innocent. Speaking to the Bachelor will end the main quest and give the Haruspex 30 reputation.
Side Quest: “The Family Home”[edit | edit source]
The Haruspex can attempt to visit Isidor Burakh's House. Outside is a guard. Regardless of what he says to try and get in, the guard will attack him and Haruspex kills the guard. From the conversation with the guard before being attacked, he learns that the key to his family home is being held by a guard outside of the Termitary.
Two guards will be standing at the entrance to the Termitary block. Attempting to speak with either of them causes them to attack. The Haruspex kills them to obtain Isidor's Key and can finally return home. Upon entering, four rats will appear and attempt to bite him. After dealing with the rats, Haruspex finds a boy named Sticky standing on the table in the far room deeper in the house. Sticky will mention that Grace may know something about what happened to his father. Speaking to Grace will direct the Haruspex to find Murky who lives inside of a train car at the Train Station.

The Haruspex heads to the Train Station and finds a wagon with a soldier standing outside. He tells the soldier the code "four hundred and thirteenth" and is allowed to enter. Inside, he finds Grace and another soldier. She tells him that she was captured because she did not want them to burn the dead. He has to convince her to let them burn corpses before he can ask her about the Bone Stake Lot situation.
After talking to those four members of his Bound, the Haruspex returns to the Bone Stake Lot and reports what each of them suggested should be done to the bull. He is then allowed to draw a vial of blood from the bull, for a total of three vials, which can be used to create Panacea.
Day 11[edit | edit source]
Main Quest: “The Ultimate Trial of the Warden”[edit | edit source]
At 7:15, the Haruspex receives a letter from the Changeling telling him that she needs to speak with him before he enters the Abattoir to do the final trial with Foreman Oyun. She asks him to meet her in Grace's lodge at the Cemetery. She will tell the Haruspex that he will need her help in the upcoming trial. He can choose whether or not to accept her help.
Haruspex then enters the Abattoir and speaks to Oyun. Oyun tells him the details of the final trial and in the previous chamber, rocks will have been cleared away to reveal a large hole. The Haruspex will then jump into the hole.
If the Haruspex did not accept the Changeling's assistance, he will die. If the Haruspex did accept the Changeling's assistance, he will find himself in a chamber facing a dead body and surrounded by Executors. They cannot be spoken to, but he will also find the Changeling who will tell him to enter the nearby tunnel and pick from one of three individuals. The Haruspex speaks to the three people and chooses one of them and exits the tunnel to find himself back in the Abattoir.
He returns to Foreman Oyun and speaks with him about the trials. Regardless of the conversation, the two will end up in combat and the Haruspex must defeat Oyun with his bare hands. His inventory is temporarily cleared for the fight so he will not have access to weapons, healing items, or defensive clothing. The fight will be extremely difficult, as Foreman Oyun is very strong, but eventually the Haruspex defeats him. The quest is completed, but he may choose to visit Aspity and whichever Vlad Olgimsky still remains to learn more about his father, the Kin, and his role within the Kin.
The Haruspex can refuse the Changeling's assistance and still complete the quest. He must first speak with Aspity, whichever Vlad is still alive, or the Bachelor after speaking with Oyun about the final trial. From these conversations, he will discover information that allows him to speak with Oyun and initiate the fight without having to jump into the pit.
Side Quest: “Bos Turokh Departs”[edit | edit source]
The Haruspex receives a letter from Notkin inquiring about the bull from the day before. He goes to speak with Notkin who advises him to check out the Bone Stake Lot. He discovers that the bull has been burned and is now gone. The Haruspex asks the head soldier about what happened, who directs him to Captain Longin who is located in the same wagon at the Train Station where Grace was being held on Day 10. Longin tells the Haruspex to speak with the Bachelor. Haruspex talks to the Bachelor about the Bone Stake Lot and the quest ends.
Side Quest: “The Spirit Will Bow Before the Power”[edit | edit source]
Capella will send the Haruspex a letter asking him for help. She asks him to speak to Khan who is inside of the Polyhedron. To enter the Polyhedron, Haruspex seeks out the Bachelor and finds out the password to enter the tower. At the top of the Polyhedron, he finds three Dogheads. Telling them the password or that he's there on the Bachelor's orders will allow him to enter and meet with Khan. The Haruspex relays Capella's offer to him and then returns to Capella to tell her what Khan said. Capella gives the Haruspex her necklace as a reward.
If the Haruspex is unable to convince the Bachelor to give him the password, he will fail the quest. If the Haruspex is unable to provide the correct password to the Dogheads or is unable to trick them into letting him enter the Polyhedron, he will fail the quest. If the Haruspex is unable to properly relay Capella's message to Khan and receive a satisfactory response, he will fail the quest.
Day 12[edit | edit source]
Main Quest: “The Final Proceedings”[edit | edit source]
The Haruspex receives a letter from the Inquisitor reminding him that at 19:00, the Cathedral will be opened for him to enter and make a decision regarding the fate of the Town, if his Bound are all free of disease. He will also receive letters from the Bachelor and the Changeling at 8:00, both requesting to speak with him and to help cure their Bound so they can also go to the Cathedral and argue their case for the fate of the Town.
The Bachelor will be at the Stillwater while the Changeling will be in the Short Block of the Termitary. The Haruspex may speak with them and choose to cure their Bound, which requires a total of 5 to 7 Panacea and Shmowder. The sick Bound members will have an Executor standing outside of their place of residence.
Once the Haruspex heals a set of adherents, he may tell the other healer that their Bound are all healed and invite them to the council that will be held at the Cathedral. When all of the Haruspex's own Bound and another healer's Bound are all cured, he will receive a letter from The Powers That Be which invites him to the Polyhedron. He can enter the Polyhedron and speak with them. If the Haruspex cures every single Bound, then he will receive another letter after meeting The Powers That Be, inviting him to the Theatre. Inside the Theatre, there are two people he can talk to.
At 19:00, the Haruspex enters the Cathedral and speaks with everyone inside. He tells Alexander Block his decision and speaks with everyone again. He may then go to sleep and the game ends once midnight arrives.
