"You there,"

"Yeah..actually you just head out and do things your way."

"That's it, that the advice."


"No, really. That's the quickest way, you should do that."
"I mean, you can't get lost anyway, right? And when you feel like keeping
track of things or doing some numbers, a pen and paper should be enough."










"But since you're still here, I guess we'll start from the top then."

"By that I mean those things on top of this page. Here,"

"Let's take a look at it."

"The puzzle-cube-thing should take you back to Lan's office in no time.
Quite handy. It'll be very helpful in your travels.

"The other things I call them navigation helper, You'll probably see those in other forms,
in other places eventually. This page has them...not that it's needed, It's just there so that
I can explain it to you."

"First, If you press the letter H on your keyboard. It will take you back to
Lan's office, like the puzzle cube.

"Well! That H button won't just work anywhere, though."

"Now, have you tried that 'Guide' yet? If you did, don't be confused,
That thing will just take you back to me and Hans here."

"Pretty straightforward, right?"

"Wait, I almost forgot this one, Try hover your cursor/mouse over this purple-ish
sentence and this image below...Just hover for now, don't click either of them yet."


Yeah, hover this for a floating yellow box!


"Did you see the yellow floating box? Magic, I'd say!"
"Well, the thing explains what it does. You will find this hovering thing
useful to you...especially when it involve with
things such as items and Passcodes."

"...Don't worry, we'll get to those later."



"(...But if you want a summary, it's all about pen & paper, stranger.
pen & paper.)"




"...Now, You can try clicking on that same sentence and image.
Go ahead...try it now. Don't worry, it'll take you back here when done."






"Welcome back."

"So, yeah, if you see oddly coloured texts and/or suspicious images
go ahead and hover over it, or click on it."

"But keep in mind that more often than not you'll find that it's
only some particular areas of the image or text that are hover-able and/or click-able. "





"Now it's time to go places, yes, yes! move around and go places."

"Aside from basic navigation with puzzle cube and such, you may
find that some places have another plan for you."

"At the Library for example, have you been there?
...See this compass-like thing?"

"It's all very simple, right? click on the direction you want to go...
and you, well, go.

"Oh, yeah, and don't forget all about the place itself!
Part of the exploration is about the interaction...I'd say."
"Poke things around, flip some switches, read books, sit on chairs,
talk to people...do your thing, have your fun and all that."

"If you're thorough, I'd say you'll go places...yes, you'll go far indeed.
Y ou might even get some free stuff or Passcodes in the process..."


"Speaking of, it's about time we talk about
items, Passcodes and inventory don't you think? "

"I'm the voice you knew many, many years ago you can't remember when..."

"...Just kidding, I used to sell houses. "
"You know, I could go to your house right now and sell it..."



"Oh hey, and I'm also the one talking to you in the staff office."

"...Nah, that Lan guy could only dream of having a voice as pleasant as mine."

"Lan? You probably've met him.
He's in the staff room when I'm not around. Yeah, that one."


"Man, Imagine getting a job for life and the only way
to get out is in a body bag...what a lucky guy.
He won't have to worry about finding jobs again."


1» Tell me about other things.

3» Who are you?


















"What of it? ..Oh right, I forgot you probably are not from around here."

"So นิรกุลาลัย Nirakulaalay is the 'proper' name of this place."
"...Or should I say the un-name of this place?"

"You see, 'Dwelling of the Nameless' and 'Haven of the No-Clans'
are some of the possible translations-translations for that."

"And so Nirakul Archives can be translated into 'Archives of the Nameless'. And
then a re-translation would be... how about... หอจดหมายเหตุของ-- "

"Huh. No, this isn't going to work - I can't think of the word for
'archive' for the meaning I meant. 'library' though, closer, but still..."


"From what I know, this place used to be a house...that was turned into
a library ...and then they make it bigger and THEN turned it into the museum-archives
we see today."

"...Was it really a house or something else back who-knows-when? I'm not sure."



"Who are 'they' ? I don't know. Go bother Lan for history lesson."


"You can leave now, really."






"Still here? Listen, I could just steal your name and hide it away
somewhere... and you'd become 'aalay-nirakul' because by then you'll be
both 'morose AND un-named' Ha! ha-ha!"

"Hah Ha-ha ha"






"Was that joke funny?"

"Alright, Pull up a seat if you haven't already, this is a long one."

"...Though, In short, the inventory is your browser's bookmark folder."

"See, when you get an 'item', just bookmark that 'item page' into a folder
called 'Inventory' ...something like that."

"- Or you can just use a pen and paper to keep track of your stuff, that's fine too."



"Anddd ...that's about it. Really. You can go now."



"Well, you can still scroll down to go through all the details.
...or just skip to whatever you want to know more about."

1» Introduction to Items

•What is an item?

"Items are things you can put in your inventory."
"You can use or interact with them as well."

•Where to find items?

"Plenty of ways to obtain an item, grab it, take it, make it, trade it, steal it
...you get the point. Item could be given to you too, of course.
If you see this passage 'add ___(item name/ID) to your inventory'
You'll know it's 'new item' time."

"Optional items have (optional) next to the prompt."

•How to keep items?

"When you see this prompt 'add ___(item name/ID) to your inventory'
...well, just put the thing in your inventory! Be it your browser bookmark or a notepad."

"Still not sure how? Hold on...we'll talk more about this in the Inventory section."



1a» Using items

"So many possibilities!"

"When you use an item, it could be gone forever
...or it could turn into another item, destroy another item, duplicate itself,
  grow back your long-lost inner ear...or even delete that memory of your
childhood friend eating wet bread off the ground and many more!"


"There are many ways to use an item. There will be a prompt to tell you when
a situation calls for an item and what you're supposed to do with them."


•When to use items?

"Some items can only be used in specific circumstances, some doesn't
care about time, places or such thing. Some can't be used by you,
some can only be used by you. Some are single use, some can be
used many times...And some aren't meant to be used, I guess."

"The point is...It's should be common sense about how things goes, It's
sounds complicated when I try to explain it so just ignore all of these and maybe
you can just check the item's description page when you first got it, or you could just
wait until something ask you to use the item. You'll be fine."



"Let's see what we can do next..."



1b» Item categories and tags

"Look here,"

"This is a banana, and it is an item."
"It's category is 'Organic' and 'Edible', and its tags are 'Small' and 'Yellow'"

"You probably've guessed, categories and tags are, for the most part,
just a way to identify an item...Could be useful too, I guess. Imagine
someone asked you for a fruit to eat(specify 'Organic'and'Edible')...you can't
just give that person a banana trumpet right? because the thing may look like
a fruit but you can't eat it."

"If you hover your cursor over 'banana' or its picture, you'll see its item ID."
"Cllick on it, and that will take you to banana's description page.
All the secret knowledge about a banana will be there...if you need it."

"At this moment, the tags are..."
'S'/'M'/'L'(sizes) / 'Colour' related tags / 'Unique'(*Can only have
1 of this item in inventory at a time)
/ 'Key'(*Can't be discarded unless told to)


"Anyway, this here banana was meant for you.
Really, Hans wanted to give it to you, take it."



"I said take it."


"You can go ahead and add a banana to your inventory."


"Congratulations, you now have a banana...in your pocket."

"If you decide to eat it now, the 'technical' process is that you have to
discard the 'banana' and then add 'banana peel' to your inventory."

"...of which you can either keep(why though), or discard it."

"Of course you can just, you know, eat it, skip all of this and discard it from
the start...don't even have to add it into your inventory in the first place!"

"But if you don't want to eat it...well, just add a banana to your inventory then."


"...Hey, don't tell me you don't want it, What Hans's going to
do if you won't take the thing. He'd be so sad and surely melt away. Come on,
you can save it just in case someone, I don't know, need an emergency
banana. Yeah, that. "

"Oh, and if you're still not sure about how to uh, put that banana in your
pocket, go see this section...or just hold on, we'll get to it eventually."



2» Introduction to IDs and Passcodes

"That banana from earlier...I'm sure you have seen its item ID already."
"IDs are for, well, identification of course. It'll come in very useful when
the situation calls for an item of specific IDs...something like that."

"Another thing are the Passcodes, those thing are different."

"So what is it? Well, Passcodes are like sets of password,"
"A complete Passcode has two sides, A-side and B-side.
Each has its own unique set of 6 characters"

"If you see a message like this:
'Passcode obtained: A-xxxxxx|B-xxxxxx'
it is a passcode. If it's me I'll take a picture...or put it in a notepad,
or scribble it in a diary or something."




2a» Using Passcodes

"So those Passcodes are fancy and all, but what can it do?"

"Sometimes in your travels, you may find that in order to take some
specific actions/proceed, It is required that you have full, or at least
half of the Passcode.

"It's that simple."

"Thing like that really test your honesty, right?"

"In a few circumstances however, the thing will require
you to manually type in the requested passcode
in order to proceed."



"...It's still relatively easy to cheat, I know."

"Like I said, there's your honesty ...Don't want to use it? Well, do
whatever you think is fun and all that. You're not my problem."



3» Your Inventory

"So, did you ate your banana? Or do you still have it clutched
in your hand not sure what to do?"

"If you want to take things with you, of course, you must put them in your pocket,
backpack, knapsack, wicker basket...or whatever container you have, right?"
" That's your inventory. But the important part is you'll need to keep
a record of what you have
, what's your equipment and such."

"There should be a few ways to do it. Me? I'd create a
Bookmark folder on the computer to use as my inventory record."

"You know that every items have their own Description page, right?"
"Say, if I've been given a banana, I'd just go and bookmark the
banana's page in a folder called 'Inventory'."



"Simple as that."

"By the way, did you see that 'Dicarded' folder?"
"When you 'discard' something it's gone of course, but keeping a record
of what you've used or thrown away is a good way to keep track
of your activities, i think."

"Technology sure is amazing."

"For Passcodes I'd just copy the code and paste it in a notepad or something."
"...Old fashioned pen and paper could work too, of course.
Both as Inventory and code memo...If you have the patience. "'



"Hm...What else,"


"Oh, right. If you're heading out later,
take this map with you. "

"Put it in your inventory if you want. There are a few of
these available for grab at the entrance as well"

"Wait, you already have one?"



"Anyway... don't forget to actually add your puzzle cube to your
inventory record then...it's yours after all."





"Well, that should cover everything."
