Splendid short FM :)


Task is not so much to see what no one has yet seen but to think what nobody has yet thought about that which everybody see. - E.S.

Really great mission! It's beautifully constructed and dripping of atmosphere. There was a palpable sense of dread through the whole mission. The only thing I thought could have been done differently was

the ghost that was homing on to you and chasing you through walls. The only way to get away was to go in to the secret rooms, which were far too hard to find imo. I kept having to kite the ghost in to the cemetery and then run into the house again and search like a maniac before the ghost caught back up with me and then redo the process. Not optimal conditions to look for a tiny key hole, though I appreciate the severe danger that the ghost provided. An enemy that can't be killed, hid from or lost, only outrun. It's a nice concept, but if you have to keep running you shouldn't have to also do such complicated tasks :P

 

Still, a solid 4/5 from me! :)

Nice idea for a mission, really great addition to the contest.

 

 

Not much to say here, I really liked the atmosphere and the overall mission concept. The ghost got a bit annoying from time to time, but other than that it was really well done.

Great mission Grayman!! Loved the ghost, did you make it?? I used a save game before I went in the doctors office so I could look around more without the ghost bothering me!

Well worth the wait. It looked quite good, but in the end, it was the subtly creepy story and the interesting twist on the standard gameplay which made it particularly cool.

 

I like how the ghost looked like a B movie effect, and how her movements made for a constant threat. Expected jump scares, got a much deeper atmosphere.

 

In my playthrough, Mother Rose spotted and killed the guard patrolling outside. As I completed the mission, just as I made for the entrance gate, I was spotted by the other guard, who immediately tried to attack me (spotted for 0 seconds!). I can well imagine our character getting hauled in and getting hanged by the city watch after they discover the break-in, the dead body, and no trace of the real murderer. B)

 


Come the time of peril, did the ground gape, and did the dead rest unquiet 'gainst us. Our bands of iron and hammers of stone prevailed not, and some did doubt the Builder's plan. But the seals held strong, and the few did triumph, and the doubters were lain into the foundations of the new sanctum. -- Collected letters of the Smith-in-Exile, Civitas Approved

I've experienced crashes with Internationalized\translatable FM's. I usually retry the download and it is either already installed or downloads fine the 2nd try.

I'm pretty sure this has been an issue since 2.0 or earlier?

yes - seems like a problem with the in game downloader.

Problem cleared up after about a week. In-game downloader now works for this mission.

Having a problem when I click on Mother Rose title link in the wiki fan missions page. For some reason it opens the page for Crucible of Omens: Behind closed doors, and the forum link takes me to 'This webpage is not available'
