So, the only things I (this is to be read "my hubby, who I tried to lure to help solving the clues and who got bored after a while") have discovered so far are:

- the names of the books make Carlstadt, NJ. When you look up the town in Wikipedia, under "Economy" ("The Economy of Following" title is not included in the acronym), you see "Pantone". This has to be related to the cards in the Scullery.

- the symbols above the windows in the Drawing Rooms are from the alchemy - sulfur, gold, mercury, silver, tin (if I remember correctly).

 

And I have no clue about any of the questions or anything else. :(

Here's what I got so far:

The symbols on the windows in the drawing room are alchemy symbols; they are sulphur, gold, mercury, silver, and tin

 

For the butler's room, the year of the cars in the picture frame might have something to do with what you should look up:

 

Great Britain Rifle Team USA = GBRTUSA (Year car came out might be something important)

TYP-DSN (insert number here): Some sort of ID number (Year of Car ?)

 

edit - DANG someone got to the alchemy thing before me... :(

edit 2 - There seems to be an Ouroboros on the lock of the safe that appears to be edited in... More links to alchemy?

edit 3 - Could the letters on the piece of paper in the armory be anagrams? They all form words...

You guys are doing great so far :) Not soooo much with the first question, but hey, maybe it'll all come in useful later ;)

Maybe the figurines in the Butler's room are letters, they are 26? But I have no idea what to do with them :)

Then, the line written over the poster is the first line from Shakespear's 18th sonnet. The movie is from 1998. Still, no idea if those numbers mean something.

I knowww what this means

 

Part of Sonnet 18 is scrawled at the bottom of the poster

 

The pyramids code is modeled after a game called Zendo

 

I can't unlock rooms because I have an unfair advantage.  I also can't win.  But this is my independent knowledge :p

@Bendida located the Head Butler's Key somewhere in the house. He is remaining curiously quiet about exactly where, but who cares? There are more rooms open now, with more clues to be discovered within!

 

 

 

Open rooms:

Drawing Room | Butler's Office | Armory | Scullery | Solarium | Wine Cellar

---

Kitchen | Nursery | North Guest Bedroom | Boiler Room

The silver pill box in the northern guest room seems to have the Yggdrasil on its lid. I have no idea whether this is of any significance.

Are the questions in order? Since question #3 isn't answered yet and no more rooms are open, is it possible to answer some of the other questions with the currently available clues?

Yes, they are. Answering #1 unlocked the rooms that enabled the answers to #2 and #3 to be uncovered.

Answering #3 will "unlock" #4 and #5, and so on :)
