Okay, I've finished up now. Great mission, John. Good secrets, lots of guards to toy with, lovely architecture.
I liked the the ghost. Is that a first for that kind of traveling light ghost in Thief? I couldn't remember any others.
I had some trouble with the hand objective. (excessive detail for getting the hand follows)
I went into the Obliette, but I didn't frob that ribcage. Once I did though I was totally taken by surprise when the statue closed in siliently behind me. Just by luck I happened to shoot him with the water arrow. I was just going to shoot him with every weapon I had, but that was the first thing I tried and he melted away. Was there a clue in a scroll somewhere that hinted a water arrow might work?
