Storyline

Shortly after moving to Rittersburg to take over duties as the lone "Schattenjager", Gabriel Knight is called by the townsfolk to investigate the killing of a child believed to be caused by a werewolf. While Gabriel is away on the case, Grace Nakimura leaves New Orleans for Rittersburgh to conduct research and keep an eye on him. Grace soon learns that Gabriel's case goes back centuries and involves King Ludwig II. Meanwhile, Gabriel's investigation leads him to a small private hunting club, where he believes the culprit may be hiding. The two are pulled deeper into the horrific events, leading Grace out to stop the unrelenting nightmare and Gabriel in a fight for his very own soul. Written by Andrew Kasch <akasch@darkvortex.com>

Goofs

Several errors occur when Mrs. Smith is doing the Tarot readings for Grace. 1) She says Grace's lifetime card is the Chariot. Later, the same card comes up for Gabriel's lifetime card, yet Mrs. Smith calls it the Lovers. 2) When she draws the other card for each, the same design stands for both the Magician (in Grace's case) and the High Priestess (in Gabriel's case). 3) The second error results in two different cards (Grace's other card and Gabriel's soul card) being called the Magician.

Quotes

Gabriel Knight: Is there any reason you don't want to room with Preiss?
Hennemann: Well, you may not have noticed, but the man is a rutting schwein. Why the Baron puts up with him I will never know. I can tell you what he's doing right now up there in his room. He has shut himself in the bathroom... and he isn't taking a bath. I tell you, you can't turn your back on a man like that. No one is safe.
