- A unique clue to the death of Augustus Darcy. This varies depending on whether the set is US or non-US. The US sets included a talisman featuring a leafed branch design featured in and on the Liber Fumo. The non-US sets include a map section or Map piece which together will form a map of London marked with strange symbols and lines. As yet the map is not complete but certain patterns are starting to emerge.
All this presented in Augustus Darcy’s olive green haversack, protected by a mystic sigil which appears to comprise three Enochian letters. The Enochian language was used by Dr John Dee and Edward Kelly to talk to angels and appears to be a major part of the murder plot and specifically the map of London which is coming together. The precise letters are the still unclear. They appear to be either 'Na Ged Or' or 'Na Gal Or' (English equivalents HGF or HDF) but which (if either) it is and what it might mean are still sources of conjecture.
