The Curse of Xian.
Level by Devoid22
Some names are in Blue so youíll remember them more easy when you have to go back there.
There are so many Zombies in the level I will only mention the first couple till you get the Crossbow, then they are no real threat any more.
Remember itís a Demo level with places that have to be further developed, I think.
In the Main Hall you standing, go in the direction Lara is facing and right/right to a door, open it and shoot the Vase right for the Ammo, go on in this passage and donít pick up the Revolver Ammo yet until you get the Crossbow. Open the left hand door around the corner and get the Flares and the Crossbow from the Vase in the other side of the room.
Go out and left, open the door and shoot the 2 Dogs to get the Ammo from the Vases. Youíll be back here, but later, first go back through the corridor and get that Ammo in the window, arm the Crossbow with some explosives. Wait till they all stand together and blow the 3 Zombies to pieces, then pick up the Ammo and go back to the Main Hall.
Look for the button on this side of the staircase and push it to light the wall-torches behind you, then go up the stairs and head right and intro the opening to the E landing, open the door and get some Ammo to the right, look for the button on the right side of the Fireplace and go up the Chimney as the Fire is now off, in the alcove is a button that will open a hidden passage in the Main Hall.
The Thistle Room.
Go back to the top of the stairs and on the Top landing are 2 doors, open the left one and shoot the Vases for the Magnums and the Ammo, which you can put to use right away as a Ninja appears, (if youíre fast enough you can shoot him while he is still doing his summersault) notice the receptacle for the Thistle and go back out to the landing.
Top Landing right hand door.
Now open the right hand door on the top landing, get the Ammo behind the door left and follow the corridor to a Vide open the door straight ahead. Lara looks up to a hatch, open it and follow the crawlspace to a hole, drop/hang in and 1st go right and up in the side crawlspace to get Secret#1. Then drop from the hole into another bathroom and get Ammo and a small medipack. Go out the door and into a bedroom, get the House Keys from under the dead Guard (pull him away by his hair) and get some Ammo in the corner, open the door with the button and come out to the Vide, go left and immediately right and shoot the Vase for a small medipack. Then open the door with the Keys and look for Ammo the behind the bed, the 2 doors open and you have to shoot the 2 Zombies, then go get the Grenade-gun and Ammo from the wardrobes. Out to the corridor again and look left for another door that needs the Silver Key (later).
For the Torch.
Head back to the Vide, left and to the top landing, go down the stairs to Main Hall, right and into the W side of the hall, find another button on this side of the stairs and light the wall/torch behind you with it. Turn and see the Piano to the right, go into the hidden passage behind the Piano and open the right hand door below with the Keys you have. Get the Shotgun from the Vase, go out and open opposite door to get the Torch from under the dead Guard and some Ammo from the Vase.
Back up to the Main hall and light the torch at the wall/torch near the Piano, then light the wall-torch on the other side of the red doors and another secret passage opens. Drop the torch for now.
Go in and push a button to open the Garden door, go straight and past a crawlspace to a wider part of the garden, ignore the crawlspace in the hedge as thereís nothing to get there (maybe in the full version of the Level there isÖ) and go right, shoot the Ninja and go along the right hand wall of the House to the corner of walls, climb up into the alcove and find Secret #2 in the crawlspace up left. Go down (You can follow the garden beyond the Secret to a door leading to the kitchen, but if you go there now you will miss out on a Secret) and head back to where you came from.
Pick up the Torch and go to the E side of Main Hall, back into that 1st door you opened, follow to the Dog room and light the wall-torches (3 of them will do) there to open another secret door. Drop the Torch and enter, the door closes behind you, go left open the 1st door left to get a small medipack inside, back out to the corridor and left, to the end of the long corridor where youíll find a small medipack in the Vase. Shoot the Dog that shows up and go to the other end of the corridor to enter the door that opened. A short corridor, go around the corner to hear the door you just passed open, go in that door, pick up some Ammo and shoot the Zombie, then go back to the other end of the long corridor and enter the new door that opened to the right. Push the button to the left, behind the Piano (to open a secret book case in a room on the opposite side of the corridor) and get the Flares, go to the other side of the room to open a door and get the Ammo out of the toilet, go back to the corridor and notice the opposite door opened, this is the ground floor level of the Vide. To the right is a door to a garden and in front a door to the Vase corridor.
The Scroll Garden.
The secret book-case you opened is to the left, go in to push the button that will open the Scroll Garden door and go out into that Garden, shoot the Dog and go left, notice the gate to the right and go on, past a closed wooden door and find the Jump switch in the end, the wooden door opens, throw the levers inside and go back to that gate, itís open now.
Inside youíll see the Scroll stand to the right, remember that and go left/right/left and get the Medipack, turn around and go right/left a couple of Wraiths will be chasing you through this garden to an alley with Statues and door that will open for you.
The Dragon Pool. (Locust can attack at any moment, get rid of them by running around and rolling)
Save here somewhere and go in, push the button and dive in the pool to get the Ammo from under the Dragon and climb out at the backside of the pool, run behind the block there and get the Laser sight from the floor, fit it on the Crossbow and take an explosive arrow to shoot the ball above the Dragon (you donít have to aim so accurately) The trapdoor in the pool opened, get the Medipack right of you and dive in. In the hole is the Thistle (showed up as Load in my inventory, like all the other things I collected) Climb out of the pool and look left of the exit for another Medipack and leave quickly. Head back to the house and go in, at the room with the secret door right and into the Vase corridor, push the Vase to the corner And jump over it, pull it all the way to a black alcove in the end, jump over one more time to push it the last bit and the door right of you opens. Go left first and into a small hall, open the right hand door to get some Ammo from behind the bed and go into that door you opened by pushing the Vase.
Get the Ammo at the statue and go right/left and open the door to the Kitchen, shoot some Zombies and pick up a small medipack, the white door to the Meat locker should now open and you can get Secret #3. Go back to the hall with the statues and right, open the door to the Piano stairs and go up, shooting a Ninja (when he shows up) and come out into the Thistle room, place the Thistle and enter the door to the Vase puzzle (well, puzzleÖ) The Vases go into the corners opposite the chairs and the door on the W landing of Main Hall opens. Go out and left in Thistle room, right out to top landing and right/right, follow to the open door on W landing. Enter the Globe room.
The Globe room.
Shoot the Ninjas and go to the other side of the room to climb down the Chimney, find the Torch in the SE and light it in the Fire place (donít get too close) and then light the 2 wall-torches to get some blue spheres up above the floor, which will point out the places where the Globes have to go.
Start with the grey one to the closest sphere, then pull the red one twice and aside once under the next sphere, take the green to the closest sphere and the blue one goes to the last sphere in front of the Fire place, youíll hear clicks to show you did it right, climb the chimney and go to the S wall, push the button to open a door in the Piano staircase.
