    UliB beat me to the announcement!

    This is a beautiful small mission that's great fun to play. I'm sure you'll all enjoy it.

    Yay, I'm the first person to post that I'm totally stuck! A feather in my cap.

    spoiler:
    Lady Lambert is taking a bath -- presumably in her suite -- and she has a key I want. But her suite is locked and unpickable. There are also two other doors on the second floor that are locked and unpickable (one probably opens with Lady Lambert's key). I have two codes (Mazarin's and Marcus's), but I have no idea where the other two are. In the basement, there is a grating that looks like I might be able to squeeze through... but there is a gate across it, and I can't figure out how to open it.


    I even did a knockout run (saving my ghost), and I still can't solve any of the five problems above. So I'm just sitting here, watching the world go by. Yeesh.

    Thanks anyone,

    Dafydd

    Somewhere, i don“t know where, is a trigger. Then she leaves the bath-room and walks around upstairs. You will have to meet her to continue. Be sure to explore all open areas. There is no way to enter that crating in the basement.

    Dafydd -
    spoiler:
    I don't believe that Lady Lambert will come out until you've found a secret hiding place in Henderson's bedroom. That's the room that is next to the door to the fancy bathroom near the top of the main stairs.


    If you're still stuck
    spoiler:
    there's a lever on the baseboard behind the desk.

    Thanks, N and UliB; I've gotten a little farther along.

    Boy, I'm having the devil of a time ghosting the party room. For some reason, one of the girls always seems to spook, even when I'm in total darkness and behind her. I think this is a problem of some sort... I put out one lamp, then even if I do nothing else, about a minute later, she suddenly begins screaming "thief! thief!" -- and everyone makes a dash for the door.

    Sigh. I need that loot... there's quite a lot of it in there.

    Also, one of the crowns in the bathroom secret compartment doesn't seem to frob; at least, I can't get it to frob. Another irritation; it's probably worth a couple of hundred.

    OK, I'm stuck... I've explored everything (expect rooms I don't have a key for) and I've done everything I can think of and Mrs Lambert still hasn't left the bathroom.

    I even
    spoiler:
    broke open the door to the balcony then jumped over to Mr Lamberts balcony, picked the door and then got killed by a super sensitive haunt
    ... I tried that several times and it never worked, so I'm guessing that's not the right thing to do...

    I know I'm missing something. I read the posts above but they didn't help.

    Thanks...

    elfranche & Jitz - You need to
    spoiler:
    look for the lever I mentioned earlier that is in the bedroom nearest to the bathroom, on the landing above the main staircase. I'm not sure but I think that after you get into that secret section, Lady Lambert comes out to patrol. She's always seemed to appear after that point for me. Killing the haunt early shouldn't matter, I don't think but you need to find all 4 code scrolls to figure out the safe combination. One of them is in the secret room I mentioned above.


    Dafydd, that tiara can be picked up.I've gotten each time I've played through. Try jumping a bit or moving a bit farther into the alcove.

    I doubt that party room is ghostable, as the AI are very touchy, as you said. Knowing you, you'll keep trying, though.

    ok I'm 110 short of the loot requirement on expert, i found the
    spoiler:
    secret in mrs lambert's bathroom



    as for triggering mrs lambert:

    spoiler:
    you have to have the 3 of 4 parts of the the code: Hendersen's, Marcus' and the other M guy's. I had found Marcu's first and then found hendersen and she didnt come out until i found the 3rd one's



    Gaetane: Awesome! Encore! I think you should do murder scenes for movies, you do such a good job on them in thief Fm's
    Thanks for the cool little appetizer! Can't wait to beta your next mission and sorry i missed this one

    Nightwalker,

    Thanks, but I've already done what you mentioned. I even restarted thinking maybe it was a fluke.

    I have 3 of the 4 codes, and have found 3 of the 5 secrets. I've been running around checking everything and everyone is unconcious (except that elusive Mrs Lambert, darn her).

    I even managed to
    spoiler:
    finally kill the haunt, but it didn't help.


    I'll tell you what, that Mrs Lambert sure does like taking a bath!

    I really hope I don't need to start over again...

    Other then all that, the mission is awesome!

    ...edit...
    spoiler:
    There is a picture in the upstairs corner bedroom that I can't open, any suggestions? Maybe that will solve my problem...

    its not lambert's code you need, it's Mazarin


    upstairs there's a room that looks like a library of sorts,

    check up in the fire place stack for a key and poor Mazarin

    Okay, I ghosted the party room, Lambert's room with the haunt, and the safe with the statues; but I'm still short 330 gold (from the 3600 needed to finish) and also 2 of the 5 secrets.

    Does anybody have a list of secrets? Or at least some of them? How about some hard-to-find loot?

    Thanks,

    Dafydd

    Very good job, Gaėtane. Nice locations, cool scripts and very good sound, too.

    UliB, I got a purse from a patrolling guard in a balcony and a plate and goblet from an upstairs terrace outside. Is there something else up high?

    I'll make another stab at the crown in the bathroom that I wasn't able to frob before; maybe I can get it this time!

    But I'm still missing two secrets.... I have the secret behind the fireplace in the guard shack outside the entrance, the secret in the fancy bathroom, and the secret near the Christmas tree; anybody find the others?

    I now have 3470 loot, just 30 short of meeting the objective. Gaaah!

    To open the metal grate inside the chimney stack of the fireplace, use the switch, which is located on the outside right of the fireplace in the bottom corner




    Great Mission
