India with locations

Bhadra Fort India Adventure CountryEdit

  • Study the Fort’s Construction
    • How did they make this place? Oh! Excuse me! Sir, do you know where the stone for these walls came from?
  • Play Cards with Off-Duty Soldiers
    • Always a reliable way to learn about local culture. No, I don't know why it's called a 'full house,' but that doesn't mean I'm making it up!
  • Play Tourist with Sterling
    • Care to show a lady around town? In a way my aunt would approve of, I mean. Sterling, you seem kind of glum. Everything okay?
  • People-Watch
    • Ah, the kind of learning where I just have to sit. I feel like such a voyeur, but I really am learning something about life here.

Crawford Market India Adventure City BEdit

[from the start]

  • Shop at the Crawford Market
    • I'm here to haggle, ogle, and test my eye for the deal! I don't know. I bet the man at that stall there would sell me one for less.
  • Help Felix Shop for His Sister
    • You asked for a female perspective, my friend. This is all on you. Felix, it doesn't matter if she has fat fingers, the ring can be fixed back home.

  • Sit by the Well and Draw Scary Horses for Anna
    • I've been drawing demon horses since I was eight and it never gets old. I'm sorry, Anna. Your weaknesses are just too much fun to exploit.

Estate of Dr. Patel India Inspiration CountryEdit

[from the start]

  • Solve the Puzzles Scattered around Raj’s House
    • I guess he leaves these out for enterprising students? Well, that's me! Good grief. Who puts combination locks on their bathroom doors?
  • Read Mysteries from Patel’s Library
    • Ooh, Agatha Christie! I'll crack the case before that darn Belgian does this time!
  • Volunteer at a Temple Patel Supports
    • I can at least help serve food - and try to stay out of people's way. Dear diary, today I gave food to a naked holy man. Somewhere in the distance, Aunt Evelyn is appalled.
  • Purse the Main Adventure in India

Falkland Road India Adventure City BEdit

[from the start]

Flora Fountain India Inspiration CountryEdit

[from the start]

  • Show off Escape Artistry
    • Gotta stay in practice! You'd think a girl in a straight-jacket would attract more attention.
  • Pay Small Children to Take Messages to Roland
    • I can't find him myself, but these kids have an uncanny knack. Remember, you're looking for a sneaky British fellow. He'll give you another rupee when he gets the letter, okay?
  • Relax and Avoid Classmates
    • Much as I want to look around, I really don't want to risk getting stuck in a conversation about Steven's love life. Keep moving, keep looking around, don't make eye contact with any stray Devenys...
  • Talk Local History with the Professor

[If on Nigel's route, after 'Drop in on the Professor and his class']

  • Adventure with the Professor in India
    • I'm out of the class for just a couple of weeks and see what happens. Don't worry, Nigel. You're not lucky enough to be free of those kids.

Jain Temple India Inspiration CityEdit

[After 'Nigel: The Indian Adventure']

  • Talk Comparative Religion with Nigel

Temple of Sati India Inspiration CityEdit

[if on Ahmose's route]

[after completion of Roland: the Indian Adventure]

  • Study the Temple of Sati Ranakdevi

  • Describe the Gardens to Ahmose
