Excellent mission.  Just the right level of difficulty and clues.

Having done everything, and got most of the loot, I still haven't found a use for my rope arrows . . .

Spoiler

I found some loot that I couldn't reach without the rope arrow

A short but enjoyable mission! Reconciled me with the mod after a few other missions than disappointed me somewhat.

Pros:

Loot distribution is mostly fair (not too hidden/on top of very high furniture, I hate that) and I didn't have to go back to complete the loot requirement.

Puzzles are straightforward without being too dumbed down either.

Plenty of moments where it's safe to sprint, but there's also places where a cocky player will be punished for it.

"Utility" moments that do not break immersion too much (e.g the game

Spoiler

reminding you of the code the cook gave you

, and the player character

Spoiler

taking a sketch of the painting that shows the 5 Ancient Items

.

Cons:

I felt like most important enemies are too easy to blackjack, as they're either not patrolling/moving, or patrol on sound-damping surfaces (carpets...).

Some alternate paths/secrets could have been welcome.

Spoiler

The "upper level" of the level with Wraiths seems... useless somewhat? All the useful rooms/items are on the lower level.

"My own" issues:

Spoiler

It took me forever to find Volume II, because the "chest" in the Lord's chamber looks way too much like a pillow! Clever man, I'd say...
When going to fetch the Cook's cake, the female servant wasn't patrolling anymore and instead was stuck in the larder where the cake is, blankly facing towards the door. It's not impossible to get through her, but it looked like a bug - unsure if it actually is.
The secret passage in the "crypt" (after the Wraiths, before the Elementals) eluded me for a while. I eventually concluded that SOMETHING had to be in  the crypt aside from 100 gold, since it took a puzzle to get through it - but that was kind of a "gamey" thought process.

 

 

All in all, thank you and well done - and R.I.P to Grayman, which I did not know before playing this.

Same problem here. I'm unable to find volume 2.

Spoiler

Or maybe I cannot find Davenport's chest. I have found a lot of chests that contain a book, but I cannot frob these books...

Thius is his room and you can see chest you need to unlock where is Vol II.

In this room there is a secret area.

Spoiler

Search the button on left side of bed, bottom wall.

Found, thanks. I have opened secret area before my first post, but I haven't seen this chest.

This was an excellent mission. Very fun to play. I think grayman would be very proud
of how this was completed. Well done everyone who helped finish his final work. :D
