    SSR Contest FM - "Slow but Steady Progress"

    This is another one i'm enjoying alot. This is a puzzler. I'm not usually any good with these types of FM's but i've got quite far on this one.

    I think i know who made this one,

    but i might be wrong! (Obviously i am, since he didn't enter!)

    Congrats to the author of this one too. There's some pretty neat stuff in this FM.

    BTW, I managed to grab the sword, after dispersing the magic sphere, by

    Oddly enough I finished this one without ever getting the sword, I think I may have done some things in the wrong order. Quite an unusual FM this.

    For the gear, you need to
    spoiler:
    locate a hanky and wet it, then use it on that window. Tip: Just dropping it into any water source won't work. There's somewhere specific you need to use it.


    As for the rest, that may be easier after getting the gear.

    This FM makes me crazy (I don't like puzzle missions).
    spoiler:
    What the hell to do with "basketball" field killer ? Gain access to sword? How to use it?

    You need to find something to put on the plate next to the portcullis first.
    spoiler:
    Get a crate and ride the elevator to the upper floor. Find a small opening there.

    Use it on the sword's magic field later. To get the sword, you need some body part. This will enable access to the sword.

    There's a small opening close to the display room. To enter it, you need to place a crate in front of it.

    I was able to

    I feel like I am missing something here. :

    Yes, you most certainly are, and once you've found the object,

    I should put my own head on the platter?


    I figured it out.

    I didn't want to kill Benny, so I went for the haunt. Then, well, I killed Benny anyway. You should have heard what he said to me.

    Care to enlighten me?
    spoiler:
    I've dispelled the field but haven't found death's head to put on the plate. The ghostly death (haunt) patrolling upstairs is carrying a head (skull) but it isn't frobbable. I got the crate upstairs and went down and got the key to the basketball, but I can't attack that death yet with no weapon.
    Hint please?

    You need to find a special arrow. Check your weapons to see if you have picked it up.
    Sorry, i can't remember where to find it.

    You mean the one that blows up the basketball? Yeah I found that already and dispelled the field through the gate. I just can't grab the sword, figure I may as well do it the right way by finding death's head to open it.

    Nope. You'll know when you find it.

    the small opening you're talking about is behind the painting right ? The problem is I can't go in it ! I opened DromEd and saw that when you get the display room key with the two grids, it triggers traps supposed to destroy the painting or something like that. But nothing happened with me . Maybe I did something wrong because I grab the display room key and run-jump over the closing grid, instead of dropping another key on the pedestal to let it open...

    When you take the display room key, you need to let the portcullis close, I think. There's a button attached to it that teleports you back.

    I've just been informed that the author has sent an update of this mission to Jason, so it will be posted at Thiefmissions when he has a chance to do so. I highly recommend everyone redownload it (less than 1MB) and start over. This missions is too neat not to play through the way the author intended.

    I didn't see it !!! I went through the whole water tunnel again once I got the key. Crap, it'll be the third time I'll restart the fm
