Thanks for that! Too bad the rest of it was never done.

I started again on expert and have now finished. I couldn't complete mission 2 (?) because I mislaid a talisman and had no idea where to find it again. Thank you PsymH - this was great fun and I'll definitely be playing it again soon - I still haven't managed to do the letter bit.
I just started playing this one again after a long rest and I am in Part III and I can't find Larius because it's been so long I don't remember where I met him the last time. I'm currently camping out at the big obelisk in the castle. I need a hint.
Nevermind I figured it out and finished the game.

I need help with part 1. I am playing on Normal. I have the green and red gems only. I know where the white one is and I know where to use that one but I found the red gem before I found where the white one is located. Where do I use the red gem? And, where is the blue gem located and where do I use that one? I need some specific spoilers. I have been running around this mission for a long time now.
You can use the red stone inspoiler:. As for the blue stone I'm not sure. Try it in the basement in a shelf or in the bathroom with the dead fish. After this you can use it in thetop of SW Towerspoiler:. Sorry, but for me it's a long time agotop of SE Tower
Yeah, I've read that in the posts here but it's not making sense to me. I'm not sure where the SW and SE towers are. I know where the round tower is where the white gem is located but I have no idea how to reach the SW and SE towers. Also, it seems like I have been all over the place but I never saw a bathroom with dead fish.
Keep looking and remember to use your map.
Ok, I found the towers and I found the blue gem too. Man, those wall ladders were hard to see.
Our pleasure! And yes they are hard to see. I missed then too the first time..lol
I think I'm missing something really basic. I've stumbled across the green, blue, and white gems (I think I found the white one first, then the green, then the blue... does the order one finds them matter? If so, how are we to know that?) I've gotten a bit of loot (about 2000), but I haven't found Larius.
I cannot seem to "use" the gems; they don't respond to right-clicking, and they cannot be dropped. Maybe when I find the red gem, they'll all become usable?
I need a juicy hint for finding the red gem and getting into the southern courtyard. Any suggestions?
I've gotten quite a bit farther:
I have all the stones
All the elemental icons
I have 10 out of 12 secrets
I'm still looking for the rest of the secrets; but what I'm really curious about now is the unfrobbable door in the north half of the map, the room in between the bathroom on that side and the secret tunnel by which Garrett entered the compound at the very beginning. I looked in the rooms on either side using the Eye of Revealing (whatever it's called), but I didn't see any secret entrance. I even went to the south side and tried to find a way in via the courtyard. Nada.
[QUOTE=bob_doe_nz;1968525]Once you have taken the envelope from Part 1, take it to Kafee's place in Part 2. Use it on the letterbox.
Does this mean that if I don't have the envelope I have to go back to part 1 and replay all part 2????
No. You can finish the mission without having the letter. It's just a bonus objective.
some cheap pottery thing...you see often
Aldo i enjoy this mission there are several keypoints bad employed.
The gems; first you do not even know that you must look for them, so missing the white one is quite possible. All gems in general; it is a pity that these important objects are "hidden" in such silly places.
Those thinks should atleast be locked, that's what i should do. In fancy boxes, so you know there is some important stuff to be found, instead of missing them (see my blue gem remark) while they look like a normal object.
The atmosphere: in some area's i feel it is too dark. Too dark in general
The Music: poor, hearing the wind all the time is getting on my nerfs and in the fortress it's not much better.
The Storyline: Beside the gem issue i think there are more "gaps"; like after you have the four stones.
So you open the gate, go to that door....then what? Did i miss a clue ?
Must be in the book in the lib with the hidden switch. The switch, i could not find while examining ALL the bookshelves! Some people make a art of hiding switches, i know. I will go back...sigh.
And when it has nothing to do with that book, how do you figure out opening that big door ? Just some luck ?
See, these kind of things put me, and i gues, others too, off.
The Fortress; interiour wise it is quite boring. Some fancy rooms with fancy furniture have stone on the floor; i mean; the hallways are better of with carpet ! LOL
Gem area;s ? empty and bland
Now, i know the makers have put alot of effort into this and they did some nice stuff, like the gem thing and the time-portal. The thing is, it all aint too well executed into the game and into the story.
Just my 2 cents
Game score 7.5 Overall

in every tower, on the first floor there is ladder, climb that up towards the room above it. There you must use the stones, except the white one. That White one you use in the big round tower.
Own issue: i see why i cannot end part 1; i still need 142 gold (why o why, now you are forced to go all the castle over again, hoping to find something you missed).
Someone sais you do not need this Lib secret, but it surely would help you to get that 5000 loot:
LC Canopic Jar
So, where is that %^#$& switch
oke, another 200 gold found, one hidden behind well, you never looked for it there. Terrible. Now, made my way into the city.... quite spooky and quite.... blue. Sorry, too blue to make it look beautifull.
Anyway, i talk with woman, 1000 loot. Oke, lets loot some....wtf, 90% of this village doors are fakes ? oke, two doors will open, the milky bar and the house next to it, another door stay locked, my tools wont help there and i seen a nice postbox...locked too. Right, 670 or so gold found...what next ?
Oh well, maybe i can pick some guards, who knows. Are wonder around in the dessert and hope to find some precious stones. Honestly cannot say i enjoy this very much, wundering around for miles and miles dor some lousy coin. Rather do some houses, with guards and/or pissed owners. Old scool, i know

Gonna try that tiny ledge you speak of later, at that small tree you mean? then to the right....oke
Must say i am glad Looking Glass did not went this route. This Thief engine does not look pretty with large landscapes so i am glad they took the "urban" city road.
Problem i have with this FM is not only the loose ends at the beginning, but a bigger issue lies in the fact that there a long periods you hardly have anything to do and then suddenly, you get alot to do and often in a frustating way. The distances to "rewards", little bonusses are too long for me and so it winds up in a boring, long walk from a to b, then the "fun" starts. However, the fun given isn't enough to satisfy my hunger.
Take that tomb stone key for example, it just lies there, somewhere in a meaningless building. Then you have to figure out on your own, you can use it there at the zombies. No book, no clues, nada.
The magic flame on the other hand, thats oke, like a bit is revealed in the book/notes.
then there is the impossible hidden secrets, sometimes you never see a switch or so, you just try at some "suspicious" texture and prey. I know, it is a secret..but ala, how far do you go ?
Till the point the player strafe every inch of your map, just to not miss any secret/clue whatever ?
Otoh are the stones just lyijng somewhere, for you to pick up. Easy does it. Weird.
Played Rowena's "the seven sisters" before this and i must say; they do not compare in quality. That FM was hard too, but in different way; more enjoyable and less frustating.
Just hope i finish this FM one day, because right now; i am fed up with it

If I remember correctly its the building that when you leave the bar is on the right! The door and blank sign should be at the far end! Hope this helps!
I am stuck in mission 2. I have the mirror and 4 pieces of code Logically they should be the solution to get back but I have tried every combination to no avail. Can someone post the code so I can get back Having to use trial and error as the only solution is really frustrating.
