Once Galeb has finished his business with Kaius in Scene One, he makes his way to Jason Moore’s apartment. Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong has Galeb investigating the murder of Moore, and to do so, he impersonates an FBI Agent. This Scene has plenty of hidden things to find, and it will take some good old sleuthing to uncover it all.

How you complete this mission is entirely up to you, and there are several paths you can take. We will be covering the major moments as opposed to giving a moment-to-moment walkthrough. Be aware you can end this Scene without finding everything, and when you leave, is entirely up to you. Doing this will have consequences, however.

Safe Zone Locations

This Scene can be quite long, and many interactions will require the use of Hunger to perform. If you don’t want to go on an accidental killing spree, then you will need to know where all the Safe Zones are. Once discovered, you can convince certain NPCs to follow you for a quick bite to eat.

  • Ground FloorGarden Storage near the indoor jungle
  • First Floor – Up the stairs and to the left, inside the library, is a safe Archive Room. You can also find an important document on Dajan in this room.
  • Garage – A room near Garbage Disposal is a Safe Zone.

How To Access Locked Doors

There are two locked doors in Moore’s apartment, and you will need access to them if you are to complete your investigation. In the sitting room, there is a house attendant, Ethan Adams. Talk to him, and he will hand you the keycard at the end of the conversation.

You can optionally use Rhetoric and Deduction to gain additional information about Moore, his marriage, and the bodyguards he has hired.

Jara Drory’s Documents Location

To get Jara Drory’s documents, you will need to head upstairs and take a left. Take another left and you will bump into Dana Lehane – a Ghoul posing as a police officer. You will be required to use the Dominate discipline to obtain the documents. You can continue to use Dominate to gain additional information on Jara.

To do this reliably, you need to have Dominate at level two. You can find a concoction in Garbage Disposal that can boost your Domination Discipline. If you don’t have the stats, then wait until you have picked up this item later in the scene.

It will also cost a lot of Hunger, so make sure you are well fed before you engage and try to abuse your vampiric powers.

How To Access Jason Moore's Hidden Safe

In Jason's office on the first floor (left of the stairs) there is a hidden safe. Go to the desk at the back of the room. There is a button you can press hidden under the desk which reveals the safe.

To access the safe, you need to punch in his daughter's date of birth which can be found in her bedroom. Alternatively, you can use Tech to hack the safe, or just enter 040911.

This safe has important documents concerning Richard Dunham.

Where To Find Berel’s File

On the first floor, right of the staircase, you will find Jason’s bedroom. On his bed is an open bag. Berel’s documents are here.

Where To Find Jason’s Car Keys

In Jason’s bedroom, hidden near his bag, is a set of car keys. You can use these keys to open the back of Jason’s car in the garage. You can find Hilda’s documents here.

How To Open The Locked Car

There is another locked car near the exit to the garage that can be opened if you have points in Security. Alternatively, you can just use the keys. You can find the keys hanging up in the Security Office where you will also find Wyatt.

Inside his car is an equipable item, the Thin Blood Watch.

How To Win The Confrontation Against Wyatt

To win the confrontation with Wyatt and unlock the garbage bins, select the following options. Where possible, we have included options that don’t require specific stats.

  • I found blood in the garbage chute.
  • Why is he being so difficult?
  • I don’t need to answer him

How To Find Hidden Panic Room

If you have been paying attention, you may have noticed several references to a Panic Room being built inside the Moore's apartment. This room is well hidden, and requires a bit of sleuthing to find. To open the panic room, go to Jason's Bedroom, and head into his ensuite. From here, interact with the mirror and click on the telephone icon. Now enter PURA VIDA, or 78728432, onto the mirror and hit CALL.

This will open the secret Panic Room. This is an alternative exit to this level. Make sure you have done everything before entering.

How To Escape With Jason Moore Alive

Inside the Panic Room, you will find Jason Moore. This will lead to a scripted scene where Galeb tries to escape the apartment. You have several options when it comes to escaping, and to get Jason out alive, you need to make sure you do the following:

  • Don't kill any of the Officers on the way out
  • Have enough Hunger to use Pressence and Dominate four times.

You can make this step much easier if you have found and injested Quentin King's Vitae in Wyatts garbage pile. You will still want to make sure your Hunger Gauge is empty, however.

This isn't the end. Once you escape the police officers, you run into Dana Lehane. You will be given the choice to hand Moore over to her, or to take him yourself. If you hand him over, Moore lives. If you refuse, Lehane will gun him down.
