Escape, part 1 is the first part of chapter IX in the plot of Return of the Obra Dinn. It reveals the fate of bosun Alfred Klestil.

After a fight with the Kraken has cost him his arm, Klestil is taken downstairs to a chair in the gun deck. When he asks about the whereabouts of his "Frenchman", Charles Miner, Fourth Mate John Davies tells him that Miner was torn apart. Davies adds that the Kraken went away with the storm because Captain Witterel chased it off. Klestil, dying of blood loss, rasps, "A curse like that does not lift for nothing".

After viewing this diorama in a new game, the player can access the first mate's cabin and thus Murder, part 3.

Things of interestEdit

Klestil death

Bosun Alfred Klestil dies of his wounds.

  • The identity of Alfred Klestil as the bosun can be deduced as he says that his mate is a Frenchman, and the only person on board from France is bosun's mate Charles Miner.
    • Klestil and Miner's causes of death are shown in The Doom, part 8.
    • Klestil's identity can also be inferred from his use of the word "Verdammt" (damn it), identifying him as coming from a German-speaking nation. Klestil is shown on the roster as hailing from Austria, the only German-speaking nation on the list.

WhereEdit

This memory is accessed via a body on a chair in back galley of the gun deck.

AreasEdit

Only aft portion of the gun deck from the stern to the main-mast are accessible. For some reason, access to the head in the cabin where the bosun dies is blocked in the diorama. Access to the main deck is blocked by Witterel walking up the stairs and access to the Orlop deck by Lanke coming up. The exit is by the bosunmate's cabin.
