    C5 - Frozen Mines

    [Folks]

    All right, I got the loot requirement (just barely), and I've slain the monster, I even rescued the child out the secret way, though that wasn't an objective. I can find the jail, but I can't get into any of the cells; and it doesn't seem to be possible to sneak past the guard at the end without using my one inviso potion, which I'm loathe to do unless required -- I may need it later, and it means the best ghost I can get is a "chemical ghost."

    What I haven't found is the bloodstone. Am I missing something obvious?

    I am in the same spot as you, Dafydd. Are you talking about the guard beyond the jail cells? I KO'd him, and there is nothing back there. Probably missing something obvious, as usual.

    Yeah

    [Spiderkat]

    Yes, I went back and took a look and discovered there was no "there" there.

    Is there anywhere we haven't been? Any forks that we didn't take? It seemed remarkably linear to me. I'm missing one secret... does that bookcase open (in the room beyond the room with all the boxes)? If so, how?

    I looked behind the boxes and didn't find anything except a coin stack, nothing to write home about. But there is supposed to be something like 950 loot, and I've only found 800. So I know there's something I haven't found yet.

    Presumably, that's where the bloodstone is.

    But where?

    Hm....

    [Nightwalker]

    Okay. I have 900 loot. I got the bloodstone. I killed that monster. And I'm now standing exactly in the spot where I began, holding the little child.

    And the mission isn't ending.

    I shall try dropping the kid. Mission still doesn't end. I shall try closing the secret door. Mission still not ending.

    Did you have any trouble like this when you beta-tested, Nightwalker?

    Kind of cool mission, though. No pun intended.

    I don't think I've ever nudged translucent burricks before. Or opaque ones, for that matter. I did ghost it, which isn't exactly a difficult feat, as the objectives virtually require ghosting....

    I think in the other thread for this mission it's been suggested that it won't complete on Hard and Expert. I've only played on Normal and it ended fine.

    It ended fine during betatesting and the author doesn't know why it's not working now. It's no big deal though, as you can just use "Ctrl+Alt+Delete+End" to get the end screen. You've done everything. There was also
    spoiler:
    50g. in loot that I didn't find in this version. Some loot changes were made and 50 seems to have vanished, so 900 may be the max you can get, though I'm not positive about that.

    Yeah, that's what I did and moved on. Now I'm playing House of Random. Not sure what I think about it yet; the weird teleporting is a bit disorienting.

    Did you find
    spoiler:
    the nugget on the high ledge on the left near where you start? You have to jump to see it.

    There's a nugget in a low hole near Grunt and Groan that's a bit hard to spot. There's a coin sitting on the ledge there, beside the scroll.
    A nugget in the corner right beside the burrick beside the frozen river.

    There's a copper coinstack tucked in almost right under one of the sleeping dwarves in the bedrooms beside the bar.


    There's a nugget down behind the bed in the bedroom off of the storage room.


    There's 50 g. that I've never found in this mission.

    OK, I;m getting to these missions a bit late, but...
    I've done everything except find the Bloodstone.
    What do I need to do? Or, Where do I need to look (again)?

    I thought I had checked them all, until I was on my way out...
    thanks, though!

    Yes, some of them can be hard to spot

    Just a couple of notes...I know, I know this is ancient but....there is only 905 loot for this mission becausethe big mask around the giant "Eye" is unfrobable and loot.

    Regarding secrets, the third one is buggy. The wrong room brush was used, so the secret won't trigger. There is a seeming bug, though, caused by the existence of a room type in the room archetypes that has the hidden stat dark gamesys property.

    The actual secret: It is mainly an easter egg of dancing frogs that is near the secret exit that takes you back to the start.
