After getting off the boat, climb up the stairs and straight through into the door in front as marked by the objective indicator. Walk over to the men here for a conversation. Afterwards, backtrack through the door you just came in from and make your way over to Piero’s workshop to chat with him.
Once the conversation ends, climb the stairs and grab a filled whale oil tank from the dispenser on the wall and return to Piero. Place the tank into the socket of the machine that he is working on. He’ll now set up shop, allowing you to purchase additional ammo or upgrades to your weapons. At the end of the conversation, choose the first option to continue.
When you regain control, open the nearby door and follow the path until you see a scene. Afterwards you will have unlocked your first power, Blink. This is an incredibly handy power that has many uses for both exploring the environment and sneaking up on or past guards unnoticed. For now though, we’ll have a short tutorial section getting us to use Blink to navigate through the area.
Continue onwards using Blink to jump across to the platforms provided, until you reach another short story scene. After this, you’ll be in possession of a heart, which will highlight all of the Runes and Bone Charms in the environment, creating way-point markers for all of them, making it a whole lot easier to track down some of the game’s collectibles!
Additionally, using the heart whilst looking at something will have it tell you secrets about it or a person, which can sometimes provide useful information for the mission at hand. For now though, with the heart out, we need to make our way to the last way-point and blink across to it. Pick up the Rune for another short scene. We can now use Outsider powers and will also be returned to the real world.

After waking up, return to the bar downstairs and talk to Havelock to find out about your next mission. Exit the bar and move forward a little ways to be approached by Callista, who will ask you to save her uncle in the upcoming mission. Now pull out the heart we just acquired and follow the way-point marker out into the water to find the second Rune . Return to Samuel (and Piero if you want to purchase anything, although the main priority will be the Rune he has for sell) and hop in the boat to start the mission proper.
