    Here's my video:


    A great little puzzley mission with a nice atmosphere, and the difficulty was just about right for me. I got temporarily stumped a few times, but never to the point of getting really angry at the mission. The clues and subtle guiding were really good. Even when I ended up having to search around for something, I never got the feeling like "it could be anywhere", and it didn't take me too long to twig to where I was really supposed to look. The ring on the zombie was neat too. I really have no major complaints, it was short and sweet and very well done.

    @ FenPhoenix

    I had real joy in watching you walkthrough. There is also other ending available in the game.

    Pretty good mission, but the puzzles are tricky!
    I love your use of custom resources, Kurhhan. The atmosphere is quite thick, very good job on that.

    In search of the other ending...

    I noticed two things that weren't in the walkthrough...

    At the pulpit in the "church" is another scroll case talking about how the high priest's tomb was sealed, and the high priest was found surrounded by zombie versions of his guards, and you need holy water to break through the secret wall to his tomb.

    After you use the horn and the burrick breaks into the "church", there are four rocks around the evil altar that can be picked up. I haven't figured out what to do with them, though...

    @ prjames

    It's only the debris from big boulder. Nothing to do with this.

    @ prjames, try to find an item that is hidden near the remains of a certain priest. You will need to use your crowbar to get it.

    Thanks, I've found the item hinted at by the readable by the pulpit.

    I have no idea where to use it (clearly, anywhere close to the "High Priest's Crypt Level -1" doesn't seem to work).

    Just go to the end of the mission, and you will find that you are no longer doomed to be stuck in between two magic walls.

    Fantastic job, Kurhhan! Loved the atmosphere in this mission - so tense!!

    Finished with about 3000 loot short of the maximum. Wow...I'll have to go back and find what I missed, for sure!

    Look not at the graves, but look where the ashes of two priests are. Look for a certain Priest Duncan, in that small space with the ashes.

    Thanks JarlFrank, I had just found a note I had missed talking about Duncan's Ashes right after I posted. After I looted the Ashes area, I forgot about it...

    Finished with 16587 of 16803 on Expert. This is a FIRST build!?! WOW! This felt like something a seasoned master Dromeder would throw together on the weekend because they were bored! Can't wait for future missions!

    This is an amazing mission!! This would be a gem from one of the pro builders!!!
    I'm looking forward to more missions from all of the three builders in this contest. They were all enjoyable to play.

    Playing on Expert. I need a bigger clue about where to find the item near Duncan's ashes that requires the crowbar, and the scroll that refers to it. Thanks.

    @ Marbrien

    You must first find a paper in "Embalmed Priests Chamber" (room with many open sarcophagus). Then try to do something in place indicated in the paper. But you don't need to do this. Without this you will get other ending (Bad).


    Thx for all opinions about my mission.

    The crowbar has to be used on the name plate on the floor.
