    2) There is a moss arrow in the plant in in Ziggy's office. It is making a clicking noise as if it is a lock. I've tried 'watering' it with a water arrow. I also tried bringing some plant nutrient from the apartment full of plants, but since it didn't go in my inventory I couldn't use it to 'unlock' the moss arrow. Any hints please?
    1.) It's Joey's locker. Find him and you'll be able to open that it. He is in some hidden vents nearby. More hint: check the toilet.
    2.) It moves his bed and reveals his key. It does nothing else.

    Got it, thank you!

    Need a bit of help with the thieves' den.

    Namely, that I have no clue how to rob the casino and most importantly, the key off that one casino-er. I've actually managed to slip through into the kitchen area a few times but there aren't any light switches or anything that would let me get around easier.

    EDIT: Nevermind. Good lord, did that take some trial and error.

    If you've found a house on multiple floors with a vapor-lift to get you between them, then you've found Blasio's house. It's the one next door to the fortune teller. Their relation seems to be very close.

    Blasio himself is not around, and his safe is hidden in his house. Check his office for anything suspicious.

    EDIT: @Taylor Thank you for the hints, I'm now at a respectable 90.45% of the total loot, and have found 87.5% of the secrets. I've also evicted the rat family (fire arrows sure are useful!) and lit all the torches that Francis dumped on the floor.

    In one of the rooms off the sewer there is a note to Marcus from Blasio. You can't pick it up, and it clicks when you use lockpicks on it. Initially I thought it was in code, but Google Translate thinks it is in Hungarian, and translates some of it (but only some of it) in a way that makes sense:

    "Remember to prepare the ground for our guest tonight! Keerlek leave open the canal is responsible for the new production in the cellar, but close the new mass! Maas laatogatoora no szuekseeguenk. Gyooezooed j and roola so no one stays in the house! Our friend is professional, but I want to risk a new one, so it is best to avoid the possibility of running with any of us. I gave the safe lock to Magia. And you stay in the hall, listen!"

    The crate it is resting on is an unusual size and has one side coloured differently to the others. Are you supposed to do anything with this?!

    radogoal, I think you may have quoted my post (#58) by mistake. I was not trying to answer your question, I was asking a question of my own.

    Blasio's house is the one with the vapour lift, the fortune teller is his neighbour.

    Blasio is the alchemist -- the house with the vapor lift. Magia is the fortune teller. They're sort of close to each other (there is also a secret passage between their homes)

    It's really Hungarian, actually a telegraph version of the language (normally Thief couldn't deal with special Hungarian letters, but I didn't try really hard to be honest). That letter is intentionally written in Hungarian (for the rest of the texts I didn't bother with a Hungarian version, because it wouldn't help me developing the mission)
    Look for the translat.str in the books folder, to get its translation.

    The lockpicks clicking on it however is just a random Dark Engine thing. It does the same on a lot of frobbable things such as readables, switches, etc.

    Not without making the Dark Engine cry, I'd reckon.

    In case you're still curious that hole is the other end of the Meuse-family toilet, and there are other ways into that house than playing the world's most ambitious tapeworm.

    Yes, you must shot rope arrow not too close to the corners of hole and not too close to the middle of hole. It's precise, but possible shot. I have no idea what's other way. After all, key is inside.

    This mission sounds awesome, Taylor, and congratulations on the release. Posting here so I don't forget to play it. I've put it on the mental backlog of missions I must get around to playing.

    Hi, congrats to your mission - was it really the first one? :-O
    I just finished it, with 5447/5555 loot and 14/16 secrets. I wonder where could be the last 2 ones?! :-O
    Loved that hungarian message left in the game <3
    Also found a bottle of invisibility potion, well hidden :-P
    I would like to ask something: there were RGB light switches in some rooms, are they secret switches ot just some kind of mood lighting?
    This mission was nice, i enjoyed it : gratulaalok ;-)

    What a special holiday gift. Sorely needed at the end of this year! Thanks, Taylor, for this.

    Very enjoyable mission. Spent a lot of time, ended up with 15 of the secrets. May spend a few more hours looking for the 16th.

    Of course, I didn't keep careful track of all the ones I did find, but if/when there is a comprehensive list posted, I should be able to figure out the one I missed.

    A few questions:

    • What is up with the spider up high above initial gate?
    • Is there anything behind stone wall section b/w unlit torches in sewer near thieve's den? BTW, I tried lighting any and all torches in the vicinity with flares.
    • Is there a key for the house with the mage(?) right outside of thieve's den (with pagan family in the cellar)?


    Anyway, loads of fun. I love this community, especially those fan mission authors who keep churning out such wonderful content.

    The RGB switches are really just mood lights. Originally I thought about doing some secret stuff with them, but I quickly gave up on the idea and kept them just for fun.

    A few questions:

    What is up with the spider up high above initial gate?
    They're just for decoration. There's no way up there as far as I know and they're all set not to react to surrounding events.

    Is there anything behind stone wall section b/w unlit torches in sewer near thieve's den? BTW, I tried lighting any and all torches in the vicinity with flares.
    I'm unsure what exactly are you thinking about. I assume you found the pirate treasure, and by lighting the nearby torches, also the one with the hint for the treasure and some fire arrow(s). Other than these, I couldn't name any other places of interest nearby, except for the obvious ones (i.e. a door).

    Is there a key for the house with the mage(?) right outside of thieve's den (with pagan family in the cellar)?

    Anyway, loads of fun. I love this community, especially those fan mission authors who keep churning out such wonderful content.
    There is no viable way to make that door open. It's permanently locked on higher difficulties (it's plain open on normal).
    And I'm glad you had fun playing my mission

    Taylor,
    Thanks for this great mission.
    Lots of places to raid. A bit narrow at times. Fun to play.

    More than 6 hours into this fm and enjoying it immensely.
    I have some questions though
    - where is the key to the thieves den armory? there's also what looks like a secret door in the wall but cannot find it. I also don't have a key for the metal door in the small room by the casino
    - I cannot find the key for apt. 5 in the condo
    - I cannot find the alchemist book and the Captain's treasure

    I know it's a lot of questions, but I will appreciate any help that will let me proceed further. Thanks!
