Description


Mystic power reduction

Dark Dimension is one of the locations that saps your mystic power as soon as you enter it: the amount of mystic power you have in your setup is reduced by 30 as soon as you fall through the trapdoor.

The Challenge


The Book of the Old Gods is missing ... and many of its Pages are also lost.

Can you locate the Dark Dimension, the last place the Book of the Old Gods was seen and acquire the Book of the Old Gods itself, by collecting all of the missing pages?

You must collect all the Pages from the Book of the Old Gods to complete it before you can collect any of the unique loot (that includes the documents 2, 3, and 4 for many of the contracts).

Clue the first

Where do many people go when they are looking for a book? They might go to a bookstore, or they might check out the local library.

Fortunately for us, Virtual Scotland contains a library but does not yet have (that we know of!) a bookstore.

Practical requirements

You must have at least 10,000,000 XP to be able to travel to Duke Leyton, and to reach Duke Leyton Library you must also have acquired a library key from the Chef ghost or the Italian chef ghost in Duke Leyton Castle.

Clue the second

Who do you ask for help in a library?

The Librarian, of course!

Once you are in Duke Leyton Library. you are looking for a librarian ghost or a dusty librarian ghost to drop you the Miskatonic library pass.

Clue the third

Once you have acquired a Miskatonic library pass in Duke Leyton Library, you should switch your setup to one that maximizes your trapdoor and oblivion stats. (Trapdoor increases the chance that you will fall through a trapdoor; oblivion increases the amount of time you can spend in the destination at the end of the trapdoor.)

Clue the fourth

Make sure that if you have a magic rope in your inventory, you disable it so that it won't prevent you from falling through the trapdoor in Duke Leyton Library.

Clue the fifth

If you have the necessary plasma, purchase the eldritch cauldron from Lady Ayumi Bayoushi's shop on the 9th floor of S.C.O.T.C.H. HQ.

If you don't have the GTP and/or plasma needed to purchase the eldritch cauldron, go do something else for a while and accummulate the necessary resources. Seriously.

Clue the sixth

Once you fall through the Duke Leyton Library trapdoor and are now in the Dark Dimension, you should change your setup again. You'll actually need multiple setups, but for the first one, you will want to use a setup that has:

  • high willpower to combat the mystic resistance of many of the ghosts in the Dark Dimension
  • any type of mechanism you want
  • as much odd odor stat as you can manage

Clue the seventh

Arm your cauldron with dark dimension plasma and go to work to attract and capture the Cthulhu secretary monster, and get her to (eventually) drop the Page 207 special item.

Clue the eighth

Once you have Page 207 in your inventory, you need to alternate setups and resources to accomplish two things:

Then you should accumulate lots of stardust — all three colors — so that you can purchase the additional Pages from Lady Ayumi Bayoushi's shop and complete the Book of the Old Gods, to be able to collect the unique loot from various ghosts.

How much stardust?

The total number of stardust you need to collect all of the Pages and to complete the purchase of the Book of the Old Gods include:

Green stardust Blue stardust Purple stardust
400 46 10

If you include the brown jenkins companion in your shopping list, you need:

Green stardust Blue stardust Purple stardust
500 66 20

Note: There are quite likely to be future items that require additional stardust, so don't stop collecting it just because you have reached these totals!

Strategy


Review the ghost types and requirements to catch carefully. This table suggests one possible way of ordering your goals to progress through the Dark Dimension.

Your goals sometimes overlap while you are hunting in the Dark Dimension. You want to

& (2) get Cthulhu secretary's page drop to unock the first page to purchase in Bayoushi's shop,

Once you have completed the Book of the Old Gods, you will need to continue hunting the monsters and other ghosts here, to receive the unique loot shown in the Ghosts section below: mechanism parts, most of the contract documents, a companion, etc.

Ghosts you can hunt Trap mechanism type Other equipment needed Cauldron and plasma Goals
Any trap mechanism type N/A Collect green stardust, dark dimension plasma, some souvenirs for the Outworldly collection and various documents for contracts
Outworldly mechanism (purchase the electron shaker mechanism from Lady Ayumi Bayoushi's shop)

Other things to do

Hunting notes

At first, you will only be able to attract and catch the ghosts that are mystic resistant but do not have a trap-type requirement.

You should expect to not catch the vast majority of the ghosts you attract.

Let us repeat that: EXPECT TO NOT CATCH THE VAST MAJORITY OF THE GHOSTS YOU ATTRACT.

The Dark Dimension is a hard, hard slog.

Even with donation gear, ghost catches are slim.

Hunting process

Hunt. See lots of big red X's in your hunting journal.

Get very frustrated and grumble a lot.

Hunt some more.

Hope you get lucky on loot drops.

Hunt some more. Complain lots.

Commiserate with your friends.

Lather, rinse, repeat.
