Take the letter from Lord Benagard that’s sitting on the podium and return to the teacher’s desktop to examine the map box on top of it, then inspect the two photos to take a closer look at the couple’s hands in both pictures, Big Ben in the background of one and the inscription written in the top left corner of the other.
  8. Move the crosshairs over the uppermost green dot in the left corner of the map to select “London” and change the number above to “10″, then use the switch on the right end of the box to scroll the picture sideways and move the crosshairs over the lowermost green dot in the right corner of the map to select “Bombay”.

  12. Push the center of the blackboard to flip it over and examine the lesson on the other side to copy down the alphabet, then approach the small table between the two windows on your right and inspect the box on top of it.
  13. This is how the box should look when you are finished solving the puzzle – Top left corner: I I I + I I I. Top right corner: I V + I I I. Bottom left corner: X + I I. Bottom right corner: V I + I I I.

  24. Inspect the four pieces of paper that appear to learn their significance and examine the flag in the photograph with your magnifying glass to discover the first Greek letter of the judge’s fraternity.
  25. Examine the note you found earlier with the circle symbol on it to deduce that one of the letters must be pi, then check the list of New York Fraternities to use process of elimination and decide that the only possible answer is: Nu Zeta Pi.
  26. Return to the coat of arms and insert all three oarlocks, then use them to rotate the oars below so that they resemble the shape of each symbol in the judge’s fraternity and open the secret door beside you.
  27. Enter the judge’s secret room to activate the next cut scene, then examine the chest in front of you and rotate the balls until the four blue ones are joined together in one line.
  28. Rotate the ball around so that all the red ones end up at one side of the chamber and the green ones end up in the other side, then push the blue section into the middle compartment so that all three colors have been completely separated and activate the next cut scene.

@Taryn,

Sometimes the order of events is important, and completing every step can be unclean. If you’ve missed something, try asking for hints and you’ll be pointed in the right direction. Press [LT] or [Space] to ask for help in-game, and you’ll earn an achievement for doing so!

It won’t let me get the letter from the filing, in Farley’s office. Help?

@Melissa,

Hmm. To get the letter from the filing, make sure you have read the note from Farley’s Desk. To open the filing cabinet, you’ll need keys from a small table in the same room. To find the correct note in the filing cabinet, look for a card with blue ink and some grease on it.

It sounds like a very tricky puzzle, is this what you’re having trouble with? If not, I’ll keep looking for a solution to your problem.

I see that you can open the safe by inputting J-16-P, but how is one supposed to have figured that out?

@theresa williamson,

The spoon is located on the floor, in the center of the back room. There’s a green rug with bowls scattered around the floor. Try looking straight down and wandering near the bowls to spot the investigation icon.
