My gosh this was a wild ride! The city section alone could stand on its own!

The level design and story/readables were fantastic! I really liked the music; especially 

Spoiler

in the gambling den and in the lobby where you meet the special thief character. The "expected ending" in the sewers, when the grim reaper comes for you was exciting and freaky. I really enjoyed traveling through the portals to new and exciting places.

I know it's been quite a few years since this mission was created, but I hope the sequel is still in the works!

I don't think it needs to be a spoiler but I'm having trouble with the Pagan Orb. I only read here that you have to be very gentle with it and let's just say I wasn't. I fired it across the rooftop to the terrace with the priest and then fired it up into the ducts then so I'd say it is well and truly broken. I thought I had a save before I picked it up but I don't, and the thing doesn't interact with the other part of the puzzle whatever I try. I tried everything, is it only a restart or is there a console command I can use? Thanks. Loving the mission so far.

The placement of the orb is a bit finicky, but IIRC you just have to drop it into the pot.

Are you sure you use the right orb?

I presume it is. It is up in the attic of the cultists house. When you are looking at the cultist chest on the right hand side of the screen there is a box up against the left hand wall and the Pagan Orb is between this box and the wall? It looks like it is the right thing but it could be completely wrong seeing as it doesn't do anything.

It should be a green crystal-looking thing on a spiky stand, that lights up blue when you're holding it. Is that what you've got?

It's a green spiky thing that lights up blue when I pick it up but it's not on a stand. It looks like a hand grenade. I think I need to play the mission again in case I broke something. I was up in that attic before I found out about the pagan orb.

It's always sad to have a story end before it's time. The best stories utilize techniques but aren't driven by it. It sounds like you were indeed heading into Avatar territory. Not for the lapse in time between instalments, but for the pizzazz you felt was needed to tell the story.  Too bad. I will always like and replay The Accountant 2. Thank you for that gift.

If you haven't played the Shadows of Northdale missions yet, I highly recommend to do so. The Accountant 2 was good, but, the Shadows of Northdale missions are quite a step ahead in my opinion.

      Perhaps an unpopular opinion: TDM team might benefit from someone with actual QA experience; someone with naturally and professionally developed curiosity, who is interested in how and why things work, how they break At least to me it's kind of mind-boggling how untested some rather important features are (first the absence alert feature for items, now the rope +body carry behavior).

      I love playing The Dark Mod when it's cold in my place. Bonus points when it's a bit (or even very) dark and it's raining, too.
