As I have given myself the task of cleaning up the mission archive on the official mirrors, I discovered that this mission isn't listed :-*(

I'm almost completed with this fm, except for objective 1. The hints here tell me about the housekeeper room with a basket. But I cannot find a room with a basket. Where is it?

next to kitchen with all the stuff on the table, there a room with a wooden wall, pots and an hourglass, its behind that wall, there's two tables, a bed, a basket on the floor. I think its west of that kitchen.

Ah, THAT room. I didn't notice the hideout because the basket stucked in the floor. But now I'm done with 3 hours and 22 minutes, but it was very fun. I'm looking forward to your next mission, btw ^^

I think the name of this mission was the reason (copyright). Still I'm not 100% sure though.

yes am still around, I changed the text in map to use the I18N way to see text, so all the in map text is in one place. so changing the name of the mission to something like 'Who is this upstart, Chaz' or 'whatever happened to the last lord' would be easier than it used to be.

Am only be interested in changing the title though as changing things in the map will seriously bugger up some story lines and facts in other maps. As the map contains bent truths that get explained in other maps and story lines.

Fair enough, if you want to do the honours and make it TDM canon compliant I will uploading it to the mirrors.

Can't update this yet, my life is currently too busy by forces beyond my control. eg landlord decided to improve the heating in my flat, by getting rid of the old system and updating it to a more intelligent fuel saving system.

The 1st TDM mission I've downloaded and played besides Tears of St. Lucia. - Lord Duffords was a good choice- it has a real Dark Project mission feel to it. Since I got a new machine I have been unable to get darkloader to work so I figured it was time to take a shot on TDM. I should have done this a while ago. I came here for a spoiler or two, you captured the feel of skeleton crew staffed manor nicely. A bit belated apparently - but thanks for the hard work Stumpy!

This is a great mission, but I am stuck trying to find the ()/Spoiler) third clue. I have tried tapping around the stairs in the sewer, but can't find it. Also cannot find ()/Spoiler) where the brick is once you are down the chain in the red bricked area. Many thanks

Regarding the third clue

I assume that this is the one which is in the lair - hence the sewers - If I remember correctly

You need to access the sewers via the sewer hatch near the room where you unlock them

third clue

 

 

there's two sewer entrances, with metal covers, one on the west side of the manor and one on the east side of the manor, they don't connect underground, the east sewer is dryer than the west one, the third clue is hidden down there in the east sewer in something that looks out of place.

 

 

red brick in undergound area down from chain

 

 

it becomes useable when clue 3 is read, or picked up. its round the other side near the passageway to the deep crevice that splits a room in half.

Am I right observing that in this latest version

the orange "fourth clue key" has lost its function completely because the underground area opens with a switch?

On the other hand,

the "great hall key" does not work on the big double doors of the great hall (with the throne) so they remain locked, while all the other doors are pickable so they don't require a key – ?

the double doors between the two halls do not open, nor do they unlock, someone poured molten lead into the keyholes to permantly lock them.

 

there's more than one way into the underground area, but only one way is the correct way.

I need help with the 4th clue. No matter which way I turn those four lion statues, nothing happens. I have read all the clues. I am using the compass to aim the statues. What am I doing wrong?
