A beautiful young woman named Elspeth Haskard has been murdered in her own apartment. A dead chicken, smeared blood in a crucifixion pattern on the body, a religious symbol drawn on floor, and many voodoo paraphernalia have been found in the crime scene. Initial examination of the body reveals no evidence of trauma. Her skin, though, appears bluish, as if she has been poisoned. Elspeth has lived a very strange life. As a brilliant doctoral student in anthropology, she has traveled to many parts of the world, including Haiti where the practice of voodoo thrives.

The file available from the top has been created from the previous MirrorCreator links.

I've rmvd the dead external d/l link now.

by taxler - 2015, May 10 - 7:58am

It seems that all the MirrorCreator links have expired/failed - SwedeBear, could you re-upload this again? (Or someone else who downloaded it...)

good thing you (Germany) don´t drive like the British (opposite sides)

But the peoples do drive their cars like the devils. Be aware of your life if you're here, Euryale.

Ehem, bit of a rush there. Got the code in with the link… Laughing out loud

Thanks for uploading again, SwedeBear. For some reasons, I've missed your file on my hdd.

Currently, there is something wrong: 1= dead, 2= 1. Wink

But it has been nearly perfect translated.

... and you're ready.

For me, it's native language. Wink

You may spend your next holiday in the land with the many Ger in the words and names?

A Toast image in a segmented Stuffit archive. I'll wait for your judgement before adding. Wink

Could you please upload your file, Swedebear?

by SwedeBear - 2012, June 29 - 8:53pm

Got a CD created earlier from an image which seems to work. I run the introduction successfully with SS under 7.6 I haven´t checked for a ISO9600 partition yet.

Got the CD-ROM but no system will mount it. Written on CD: Windows only.
System Profiler ATA says, the file system is HFS, name is "Sam Rupert".

Me, ordered original CD from ebay.uk now, very cheap in price...

by mrdav - 2012, June 23 - 12:29am

The Mac partition on this disk image does seem to be missing. To check, I downloaded the files as well from Adventure Legends and, after assembling the ISO, found that only the Windows partition is present in this supposedly Hybrid image...exactly the same as the image posted here, as I expected. So it seems that the original upload to Adventure Legends is corrupt. I believe that the link above should be removed until we find a good copy of the disk image.

Physical CD not available here.
Got it from the second comment written at Taylor French and converted it, using AnyToISO.

by SwedeBear - 2012, June 21 - 9:57pm

My system, 10.6.8, mounts the ISO part. Toast Titanium 11 recognize the image as a Hybrid but mounts only the ISO part. SS gives the same response associating the image. How about a physical CD-ROM?

My Mac systems won't mount the CD-ROM. Bas and Sheep wants to initialize, Mac OS X can't find any file systems on the CD image file.
