Head to the students that are located in the western part of the Shells. Try to talk to three people in the kitchen. All of them are reading books and do not want to be distracted. Read the unsent message that lies on the table. Go up to the second floor. Remove the lock from the door on the left side and enter the room. Examine the wall on the left, use the Mind’s Eye and find a secret room. Examine three corpses of people that you have seen in the kitchen of the first floor. Enter the rift and examine three memories. List them in the correct order: students create exact copies of themselves, copies kill them, copies cover up their tracks by creating an illusory wall. Find a student diary in the next room on the table.

Go down to the first floor and go to the kitchen to the copies of the students. Use the Mind’s Eye to look at the wall in the corner, near the window, and find a hidden shelf with the book The Second Eyelid. As soon as you take it, the copies will attack you. Kill them.

Now move to the restorator’s house on Baker St, in the southern part of Reed Heights. Go inside the house through the back door by breaking the boards on it (the front door is closed). Enter the hall and pick up the unsent letter from the table next to the typewriter. Go up to the second floor and open the door near the piano, breaking the lock. The room is empty, but if you use the Mind’s Eye to look at the cabinet on the left, you’ll find a hidden room with the restorator. Grab the book Mastery of Words from the stand and then kill the restorator who attacks you. Go to the second floor and find a piece of paper on the stand in the far corner. You have found all the evidence.

Use the Mind’s Eye to look at the statue on the left to find a melted iron key. Go to the right from the kitchen and see a door. A note is hanging to the left of this door. Grab this note, enter the pantry and use the Mind’s Eye to look at the symbols. You will be automatically taken upstairs.
