    I just finished and must say that this was a tremendously fun mission! The story was well developed, and as I said already the atmosphere is fantastic. You're certainly establishing a visual and atmospheric style for yourself, AM_16.

    I've just started and I agree with Yandros. The blue ambient and the sounds are fantastic. Looking forward to getting into this one. Nice work AM!

    Since you play this mission remember it is the TIS for the next couple of weeks. Feel free to drop the impressions.

    I just finished and it was really, really fun! The wraiths are VERY creepy. The lighting in the outdoor areas is beautiful. I love the blue/purple colouring and the stream, plants and the rest are very realistic. There is a lot of detail and you've obviously put a lot of work into getting it all just right.

    I thoroughly enjoyed it and was happy to be able to complete it by myself except for finding the frogbeast egg. It wasn't easy but the clues were all there in the mission and that's a nice change as I usually have to check back here multiple times for hints/help. Thanks very much! I've enjoyed all your missions and I hope there will be more to come.

    This mission was fun. The layout was simple, which was both a plus and a minus - this mission will go down in my memory as "the blue mission". At least it's hard to get lost.

    The underground areas and the buildings are very well done, and the plot is decent, if somewhat predictable. And like most others here, the only difficult part of the mission was finding the frogbeast egg. (Hint: A huge tip would have been to let us hear a frog near the egg.)

    Ambient sounds are used to very good effect in this mission - something some DromEders seem to have forgotten in recent years.

    I missed out on 50 loot on Expert difficulty.

    Overall a simple and fun little mission. Keep up the good work!

    Hint 1: There's a red book there up on a shelf that describes the battle between the mage and the hammerites. It indicates that the mage's tower is someplace near the chasm.

    Hint 2: Follow the wisp

    Answer: You can reach the mage's tower by jumping on the cliffs in the chasm and going north.
    I guess I allready did this, before I posted my former post.
    I'll sart over tomorrow. Maybe I missed something.

    The invisible guys are the wraiths, right. Are the wraiths there already when you lit the brazier? This is important. A fire arrow should do it.

    Came back from spending halloween weekend with family to find not one, but 3 T2 FMs, and a DM FM.

    I decided to start with this one first, as it was the most low profile, and I wanted to give it a chance on it's own without it having to compete with Rose Cottage in my mind.

    Just finished, and I have to say this was a great little mission. Fantastic atmosphere. Very immersive. You said you were going for an outdoor feel AntiMatter_16? Well you captured it nicely. It very much felt like a small outpost and monastery set in the wilds. I mean I know it was, but it felt like it. Great use of ambient sound.

    My only complaint was the $%&# frogbeast egg. I'm afraid the hunt for that completely ruined my immersion. I got over it after finding it though. As someone else mentioned, perhaps an audible hint might have helped there.

    That aside, I think this was very well done. If it weren't up against such stiff competition, I think this thread would have gotten quite a few more responses already. Great job. I definitely recommend this mission to anyone who hasn't played it yet.

    @Lawviz:You can also light it with a flare.

    The brazier can be lighted with the flare in the table, i finished this mission and missed 100 loot in expert, i think if i start to play again i'll find it. Great mission in all ways, it's not too heavy and has a good outside atmosphere.

    Finished in short time after starting over and finding things first. It was tense and those wraiths were fast. I, too, had trouble finding the frog egg. I loved climbing the vines on the sides of the cliffs. Believe me, I was still watching my back all the way home. Loved every scary bit of your FM.

    Thanxs,

    Hope Vincent

    Beltezer: As you come from the cabin cross the small river. Right in front of you is a road that takes you to that spider. Just before you enter that path take right and keep the left hand on the wall. You'll reach the egg in no time. You'll kick yourself for not seeing it.

    Lots of people have been having trouble with finding the frog egg I've noticed, but if you get too frustrated, you can just take your aggressions out on the wraiths. Killing them manually also completes the objective.
