    T2 FM, "Bad Debts" (17/12/2007) (UPDATED 17/01/2016)

    Hello, Taffers!

    My first mission, Bad Debts, has been completed just in time for Christmas, and is available for download.

    Note: since the map may be a bit hard to read due to the low resolution, I recommend printing the high resolution copy included in the root directory of the archive. You can pore over it in the darkness just like Garrett would! In a separate directory, there are also a few bits of concept art and the original plan for the map, as well as a lootlist assembled by Emerald Wolf and the other betatesters.

    1.1 update note
    - It has been eight years since the mission was first released. Wow!
    - This version includes a French translation provided by Apiai, with small corrections by skacky. Thank you, both!
    - The in-game map has been cleaned up and fitted with a background. It is available in both English and French.
    - The version featuring updated objects has been withdrawn. If you wish to play Bad Debts with updated objects, simply install the Object Enhancement Pack.
    - Parts of the mission are slightly easier than they used to be thanks to improved mantling behaviour in NewDark. To my knowledge, this does not substantially alter the difficulty or allow the player to get stuck somewhere they are not meant to be.

    Download the mission here:
    MEGA (42 MB)
    SouthQuarter (42 MB)
    DarkFate (42 MB)

    Have fun!

    [edit]
    Series information:
    The missions in this series take place shortly before the TDP storyline. None of them require previous knowledge of previous FMs, but there are common elements and a degree of continuity. The missions, in current order, are:
    1. Prowler of the Dark (TDP/Gold) (S): liberate a skull of paganic enchantment from an abandoned church, which is kept sealed and guarded by the Hammerites.
    2. Return to the City (The Dark Mod) (M): plunder the other side of the church complex to steal a pack of explosives. Patrols have been heightened because of the recent break-in. (This mission connects to the previous along the North/South axis - too bad I didn't have the time to let you revisit some old areas)
    3. Fiasco at Fauchard Street (The Dark Mod) (M): steal a collection of opals from the house of a wealthy usurer.
    4. Bad Debts (TMA) (XL): fallen on hard times, you take a job from a diminutive snitch to steal his letter of debt from Markus, a pawnshop owner/usurer. (You are here!)
    5. Disorientation (TMA) (XL): following the events in the previous mission, you attract the unwanted attentions of Lady Azamlarg, district warden and judge, and have to break into her palace to deter her from further assassination attempts. More rooftops and conspiracies.


    Finally, here are a few screenshots:

    Melan, congrats on getting this released! I look forward to playing it when I decide to take a break from Dromed.
    I'm getting quite a backlog of FMs I want to play now...

    Great mission Melan! I love how the Rope Arrow is the most important item in this mission. Climbing on buildings is fun.

    I've finished everything except Finding the key for the exit gate, apparently a cat stole it from the drunk guard on the rooftops, but I can't find that key anywhere.

    Really enjoying this, Melan, great architecture & hours & hours of exploring! But have come to a standstill -
    spoiler:
    really need help on the Tomlinson objective; have been up in all the rafters & crawled all over the place, but nothing "interesting". And can that sorcerer's tomb be reached?

    Thanx

    woo hoo !

    Thanks Melan - I'm stuck at home with a cold, and it's Thief and Thief alone that can take my mind off my self-pity. You've made a snuffly wreck happy.

    I can't BELIEVE how spoilt we are this month for FMs.

    Sticky Fingers:

    For the Tomlinson Objective you have to get to the 3rd floor, and get an item there and drop it off in the Hammerite donation chute

    For the sorcerer's tomb you have to shoot the corpse with a water arrow through the grate looking down at him.

    You can also throw a flash bomb down, that will get his attention.

    But what item?
    spoiler:
    the skull doesn't do the objective, & I can't see anything else to pick up. What was on the rafters has long been absorbed in the loot pouch.

    There is a chest in the room with the fire and the skull.


    I'm stuck, too!

    spoiler:
    Can't find the key and the house of the landlord, I finished every other objective. Thank you for help.


    Great mission!

    Landlord help

    Your landlords place is right near where you started the mission. There is a starionary guard standing in front. Your landlords key is on him and he ends up at the bar.
