Saint Kotar Guide: How To Find Doctor Hatur
With the investigation into Viktoria’s disappearance well and truly underway, Nikolay and Benedek decide to split up and cover more ground. Nikolay’s scenario takes him towards the lodge in an attempt to find and question Doctor Hatur, who may have a hand in the sinister events surrounding Sveti Kotar. Enter the lodge and examine your surroundings, you’ll notice a bricked-up room on the right side of the lobby which seems mighty suspicious. Approach the reception desk and question the attendant Luka, he’s not very helpful. Luka informs Nikolay that he can’t gain access to Hatur’s room as he must be chosen to go upstairs. However, there’s another way into the bricked-up room, he just doesn’t know-how. Only Mr. Wilde, the owner of the lodge can grant you permission to go upstairs, examine the empty food bowl lying at the reception desk and Luka will let you know that it belongs to the King in Yellow. Luka is unable to tell you more and again refers to Mr. Wilde. Your task now is to find out the identity of the King in Yellow and find Mr. Wilde to gain access to Hatur’s room.
Leave the lodge and head down the wooden staircase, you’ll notice a lone figure standing at the very edge of the pier. Approach the figure, a child called Antun, who is out fishing. Talking to Antun provides some more exposition about the history of Sveti Kotar and the moon ghouls, the conversation also sheds some more light on Nikolay’s character and childhood. Antun is standing at the pier looking for fish but is also desperate to be reunited with his mother and father who he believes live in the lake. If you ask Antun for a piece of bait he’ll assume it’s for the King in Yellow as he’s come across him before. Antun will, very generously, give you a piece of his own skin to summon the King in Yellow. Pocket the piece of skin and slowly move away from the child.
Well, that was weird, and things are about to get even weirder. Return to the lodge, once you do place the piece of Antun’s skin into the food bowl which will summon the King in Yellow. That’s right, it’s a cat and a nice little easter egg to the book of short stories from Robert W. Chambers. Ask the King in Yellow for permission to go upstairs, you’ll again be denied but a passage will be opened that will take you to Hatur’s room. Enter the passage and you’ll be taken to a horrifying hallway of flesh, be sure to examine the paintings on the wall. Get ready for a jump scare as Nikolay is confronted by Hatur and a ghastly figure from his past, bringing this entry in the guide to a close.
