The mission starts in the cabin, which is located in the North-West of Strawberry. You will need to communicate with the young man standing on the porch. The beginning of the quest is marked on the Map below.

He will tell you about the drawings, and the player must then send him the coordinates of each. First, you need to find all 10, and then send the received information by mail. The result will be an invitation to the quest Creator.

In Cumberland in the Western part, you need to get to the edge of the mountain, and then to the mountain pass that leads down. Another way to get to the desired point is to jump down, but you need to have full health, otherwise such a jump will cause the death of the main character.

After sending the coordinates by mail, you need to wait a couple of days. During this period, you can go outside the city and create a camp there. Next, you need to sleep twice, then wait for some time, and then take two more NAPs. Then you can go back to the post office, where there will be a letter from Francis Sinclair inviting him to the cabin, where the search was started.

Sending coordinates
Mail check

Return to Sinclair


This is the final stage of the mission. After receiving the invitation you need to wait until the location of Francis does not appear on the Map. As soon as a white mark appears on it, you can safely start your journey.

Return to Sinclair
When the character reaches the goal, he learns that Sinclair has been dead for more than a year. He will talk to his wife and see his son, who will have a birthmark, just like his father.

In fact, Francis Sinclair is a time traveler, and the rock paintings, which were mostly futuristic paintings, are clearly a message from the future. He needed the coordinates to find the portal that was somewhere between them. So he could go back to his own time.

Mission Finale
Once all the stages of the quest are completed, the player gets 1% to complete the mission.
