Description:

The biggest news in town is that one of the local Hammerite temples to the north was just

raided. Several key artifacts were taken from the temple grounds, and the Hammers themselves were

left butchered and torn apart. The word on the street is that the job was pulled off by

a group of unknown, independent thieves, but the Keepers have found a way to get you a more

accurate description of what happened.

Apparently, the job was pulled by a cult calling themselves The Resurrection. Comprised

mostly of ex-bandits and thieves, the group has been on a mad quest to collect a number of

arcane relics for use in some bizarre rituals. The group is headed by a woman, shrouded in

mystery, who the Keepers have found to be obsessed with the return of the Trickster. Convinced

that his return to the realm of the living is imminent, she has been recruiting various

rogues into her dark organization to carry out her bizarre schemes. The recent raid on the

Hammerite temple is testimony to power and fanaticism of both the leader and the cult itself.

The target of this most recent attack was none other than the fabled Spirit Stone - a blood

red gem supposedly imbued with the powers to grant life. Not surprisingly, the Keepers would

like you to find out where the cult is hiding it and steal it back. However, the cult is

quite cunning, and although the Keepers were able to follow several of the members back to

an old, walled-off section of the city, they have no idea where their hideout is. They

want you to find their fortress and descend into the depths, stealing back what was taken

by whatever means necessary.

Ordinarily, you don't take this kind of job due to the risk factor, but you don't anyone out

there giving thieves a bad name. And, if the cult has been collecting artifacts, they're bound

to have a horde of loot down there just ripe for the taking...

*Notes*

First and foremost, I'd like to thank everyone at the TTLG forums who helped answer all of my menial

questions and made this level possible. All feedback from forum members (or anyone else) is

welcome. Also, special thanks to all my beta-testers, formal and informal, who e-mailed me with

input. Thanks to Dan for the quick responses and the advice.

Things you might want to try if you have time:

1. Try playing on different "difficulty" settings; they make the level experience pretty

different, as I tried to make them correspond to different styles of play.

2. Try hitting the lantern guard with an arrow.

3. I put in allusions to my 3 favorite FM. Can you find them?

4. Try letting Robert get the drop on you.

5. Try disposing of the mummified corpse in a place or in a manner besides the obvious one.

6. Try picking up some body parts :)
