My old friend Andreas urgently needs my help. He asked if I could meet him at the Lion's Head Inn, our favourite retreat in a quaint part of the city called Mirkway Quarter. He’s got a small apartment

To quote bikerdude:

Its below the Pump House off Bridge st, south of Market square. (directly below the assassins small apartment).

You can get into the sewer section from several ways -

1. from the pump house on Bridge St.
2. from the sewer cistern, which itself has 3 ingress points (thieves hideout, north sewers and east sewers)
3. via the vent in the maintenance room off Arch Way.
4. via the vent from the gambling den

Sorry for the delayed response - looks like there might be a gap in the objectives logic.

That objective appears when you enter Marlow's area in his mansion and should complete when you find his 4th letter in the same area (that's the lead). It looks to me like you went to his chambers, but didn't find the 4th letter and ended up completing all the other objectives without that clue.

 

 

 

Thanks @Dragofer

Spoiler

I went back to his chambers, and found the 4th letter, which triggered the non-lethal objective, and so I was able to finish the mission :)

I believe that maybe this objective about the lead should be something like "Find criminal evidence against Marlow" or similar, as that seems to fit better, and would avoid confusion to those weirdos like me who find the assassin's book first :P 

But anyways, congratulations to you and the team (again) for this epic and beautiful mission!

How do I discourage the assassin from carrying out her job? Killing or knocking her out doesn't work and I could not find anything in the hideout like a note to warn her with or even weapons to take away to prevent her from using it for the hit.

You can do it non-violently by taking away her gear:

1) the bow, blackjack etc. on the upper floor next to the bed

2) the lockpicks, compass etc. on the kitchen table

Or KO her and leave a warning note next to her bed by frobbing the blank sheet that's lying there.

You can also leave a note without KOing, just after taking away the gear. The text is different depending on what you do.

I did not see any upper floor where the weapons could be stored nor did I see the other items on the kitchen table. There was also no blank sheet I could frob next to the bed. What difficulty setting are you playing on ? Mine is on the maximum difficulty setting.

I also brought Barlow's body and placed it in the assassin's room to let her know that her client is dead and won't be able to pay her for the hit but that did not tick the objective either..LOL.

@maxrenn8
It's strange that you see none of the things I mentioned at that location. The bow/weapons for example are along the wall at the assassin's bed and the empty page is right next to all that.

If you attach a savegame and say what version of TDM and the FM you're on I could look at what's going on there.

Using Dark Mod version 2.09 , Painter's Wife version 1.1 The savegame file is over 8000kb so cannot attach that but I will try to send screen capture.

@maxrenn8 Ah, that's the leader of a gang of thieves in the sewers. The assassin lives in a different part of the map, roughly northeast of the Bell Tower on Upper Street. She's in a 2-story apartment with mushrooms growing outside the window.

And no, you can't go to the very top of the Bell Tower. We would've liked to make that possible, but you can't make something that high accessible without resulting in a major performance drop in the whole neighbourhood since you'd see a lot of the map at once.

Okay, thanks for that tip. More than one female in the violent crime biz is what I never suspected...LOL. I did go to the top of the clock tower and saw the clock mechanisms but it was only a interior view. No outside view of the city.

Isn't the Painters Wife now upto version 3 according to the ingame mission downloader?

Internally the downloader can only work with integers, so v1.1 = v2 and v1.2 (current) = v3.

If the archive is 175 MB instead of 500+ it's the current version.
