    T2 FM: The Way of The Sword (Hammerite Contest Entry) 14 NOV 2007


    Version 1.1 to 1.2 update: very minor change. The Talisman of Death was frobbable if the rosary was blessed even if the gate was still closed. This was a problem that I thought I had fixed during beta testing after Sluggs found it. However I must have "unfixed" it by mistake. My gamesys change was there and ready, but the object properties were somehow wrong again. Also, the 1.2 version file name is correct v1.2, but the readme file still says 1.1, this was an oversight, as long as the file name is correct the mission should be fine. If I issue a version 1.3 i'll correct that as well.

    Version 1.0 to 1.1 update: turns out that a small bug prevents the mission from finishing in version 1.0 if the bonus objective is not complete. In version 1.1 the objective is set to optional as well. If you have version 1.0 you'll either have to skip the bonus objective (don't read the elixir of life scroll) or complete the objective.

    A fence came to me with a request. A collector is looking for an ancient artifact, The Talisman of Death. Trouble is that its being kept by a local Hammerite monastery. Seems the Hammerites fear the talisman and keep it under pretty close guard. The last couple of thieves to go after this one were never heard from again.

    Itís a tough job, but nothing is impossible for the greatest thief in the world. While Iím there I should look for a few other artifacts. The Sword of the Builder should bring a good price, magical swords always do. These Hammerites are also known to have a secret fighting technique. If I could find a copy of their fighting manual it could be valuable.

    I've only just started playing this and already, I'm having a hoot with this mission.

    This is one of those missions thats completely different to what one would expect.

    And since I just started...
    Does Garrett learn to 'karate chop' when he gets a certain item???

    Congrats, Jason! This is a beautifully crafted mission and great fun to play. I'm sure everyone will love it, especially the oriental Hammer twist!

    Oh by the way, for those of you who don't frequent the Editor's Guild, Otto's announcing his own contest mission because it was the only entry I received, so I had to cancel the contest.

    I look at Otto's screens and it makes me want to pitch my work in the bin.

    I know, I know...work harder! I am, I am.

    Got to get my next project out the door and then I'm nabbing this puppy.

    I know the feeling, but I had an epiphany the other day while walking around this mission. I accepted the fact that I'll never build a mission with architecture this amazing, and decided to concentrate my attention on my strengths instead of engaging in the futile exercise of trying to perfect my weaknesses.


    Sorry, everyone back to the mission!

    Oh I hear you there...so that's what I'm doing. Plus I've enlisted a secret weapon to test besides the usual suspects.

    How does one go about with getting the ingredients for "love potion #9?" I looked everywhere

    Also...

    With regards to ending the level, I did what I needed and returned to the start. It did not tick off for me.

    the ingredients

    spoiler:
    are hidden in crates through the monastery. you'll have to random smash to find them all, but the potion isn't needed, you can finish it without the potion. this is so that ghosters don't have to make all that noise smashing things.


    i generally use the potion to

    spoiler:
    1. get the sword without turning off the generators
    2. get the talisman of death without finding myself some holy protection


    and thats all i'm saying. i checked my copy and the mission ended when i entered the start area with all objectives ticked, could anyone with this problem send me a save file so i can see what might be going on.

    Wow! Really...WOW!
    Apart from anything else (& everything else is great) your missions keep looking more & more stunning Just loving this.

    However, one objective doesn't seem to want to tick off -
    spoiler:
    have all 3 novice disguises, but playing on Samurai I didn't want to get 'extra help'. Now left- or right- clicking on any of them in inventory doesn't do anything - & obj is unticked Did I need to put the 1st one on straightaway?

    Anyway, still looking for
    spoiler:
    sword, manual & ingredients
    so I'll be at it for awhile yet...

    Oh, & congrats on winning the contest
