There's one glaring error I need to point out, with regards to this mission. The note on the door states...

 

Spoiler 

 

"When the bad man comes, all you can do is hide!"

 

 

But that's not entirely true, is it? Because...

 

Spoiler 

 

...when the bad man comes, you can also poo your pants!

 

 

His arrival was intense. Got my heart racing, not knowing what this new type of villain was!

 

LoL! I was frightened like a puppy but then amused like a child when the Bad Man bashed into the room, opened the other wardrobe (if you know what I mean), comically moaned in despair and left.

 

I don't need any coupon, if I can still buy this novella I will. Obviously the one who mastered this FM can't write a bad book.

 

Geez! What a cool stuff. If you are interested, I had an idea about creating a FM having daylight and a non-criminal (well, at the beginning) hero. I even scribbled a scenery and some schemas. But I'm lacking mapping skills (e.g. complex terrain and scripts. I prefer to do more general design stuff). Also, my PC is a bit outdated and runs editor extremely slow having a big mess of objects in it. I know what to do, I know what is it about but still didn't make it  :ph34r:

Maybe it's not hopeless trying to get some help&cooperation in the forum? Huh?

Yeah, sorry, this must be in an other topic.

Did find the time to play that gem at last...
 
I think it cannot get better that for a mod mission. 
So many great ideas and moments. So much fun to look at and play through your huge double part mission.
Triple AAA mapping quality indeed! 
And even better, with giving the atmosphere that I felt when playing the old original Thief games.
 
Thank you a lot Gelo for all your time and skill that you put into your outstanding TDM missions! 
Best whishes to your ventures into creating indi-games.

My response to this FM can be succinctly summed up with one word: WOW. I knew I was in for a grand treat from the very first moment that my screen flashed white.

The following spoiler block is going to be far more a short stream-of-consciousness response to the mission than an actual review:

 

Spoiler

 

I love puzzles, so I greatly enjoyed them, though I wish they had gotten harder (or that optional harder ones had been added). 

I greatly appreciate the automap! Thanks for implementing it (and thanks to Obsttorte, I believe, for the creation of it for TDM?). 

 

Thank you for a very enjoyable mission, Moonbo! One question regarding the book: Does the discount coupon work for Amazon? I'm a Kindle user, so I tend to get my ebooks from there. Regardless, I'll be purchasing it soon, and look forward to reading it.

Hey Shaz, I'm glad you enjoyed the mission! Sadly, the code is only good for the smashwords Edition though :).

Hey Chakkman,

Objects from part of the spirit realm can be used in other parts :). Let me know if you need a more specific clue.

It was sometimes a nonsense but very funny, diverse and intensive at the same time. Recommended.

Just yesterday I finished this mission on Saint difficulty and I have to say: excellent job you have done here! Very good writing and I especially appreciate details and lighting in the House.
