    Death's Cold Embrace: Mission 2 "A Formula For Success"

    Please post all questions and comments related to this mission in this thread, and not the main DCE thread.

    IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT THIS MISSION:
    The locations of most all of the important items in this mission vary by difficulty. Please say the difficulty you're playing when you ask a question or else you will just get asked for it (or worse, told something wrong by someone who played on a different difficulty).

    downwinder, you need to find the third stool and place these 3 stools somewhere in the library to open a secret door and find what you're searching.

    @downwinder: It helps to know what difficulty you are playing. The third stool is in different places for each.

    So I figured out the stool thing, but I can't find the third one. Playing on Expert. Also there's a ton of locked doors around and I haven't found the key for anything but the Captain's quarters, which didn't seem to have anything useful in it? If the stools won't solve my door problems, I'd like some hints for that too.

    Great campaign so far! I missed around 2000 loot on the previous mission which kinda wow'd me as I felt like I had been everywhere. I did miss a few secrets, though.

    @Icewater : A guard has the key to the Rooms on him, he is patrolling near Lady H's room

    Also there is a solid clue about the location of the third stool (on Expert) in Lord Highwater's journal, which is in the office, if you have been in there already.

    1) In moneybox in game room
    2) Chest in crypt pit
    3) Lord Highwater's bedroom wall safe
    4) Secret compartment in third floor commons area
    5) In the safe with the formula

    @Terra: On Normal, the formula is in a hidden wall safe in Lord Highwater's bedroom. And which safe do you need the key to? There are several.

    @downwinder - the three stools go on the floor in the library - on three of those pretty panels down the middle of floor.

    I remember there's a small switch in this bedroom. Near the bed and close to the wall, left hand side, crouch and look down

    The emeralds (on Normal) are found in the office safe, and in the hidden wall safe in Lord H's bedroom.

    The dirty laundry is in a secret room in the library. The mechanism to reveal it is pretty unusual; there is a clue in Lord H's journal in the office.
