Description
Join the party of four as they search for the kidnapped son of King Mansell.

9 level dungeon, extremely story driven, with three different story lines that merge into one near the end. Features a multi-stage boss fight. About 5 - 7 hours of play time.

There is a lot of reading in this
mod. It is not required to read it to play
the mod, but in many cases movement is
restricted until the text is finished.
You will just have to wait it out. The
3 note Discover Spell sound will alert you
to new text should your attention be focused
elsewhere.

Set up for a new party. Must have four champions or mod will not function properly. Does not support Toruum mode.

There is no death in this mod, players are rendered unconcious for a short period. If all 4 members are unconcious then it's game over.

This mod uses the new LoG Journal to maintain a summary of the game events. Press the C key to
open and close the journal. The level up sound
(single note chime) indicates a new entry.

Use common names for party members. Some guidelines for creating the players in order of the creation screen (top to bottom)
1) The party leader and a significant part of the story line.
2) The somewhat serious member, intelligent.
3) The joker, a bit sarcastic.
4) The pessimist.
These are just some suggestions.

35 notes tell the story of the citizens of Steeprock. 26 secrets to find. Be sure to spend some time reading the scrolls in the library on level two. It's full of references to other games, classic literature, televison shows, a few of my favorite books and a couple game hints and easter eggs.

Much easier than the original. Should be playable on hard by anyone with previous Grimrock experience.

Plenty of food. Starvation should not be an
issue, but you should still try not to waste any.
A note to be fair - no torch holder puzzles and
nothing hidden behind tapestries.

Please read the readme.txt file. It has much
more detailed info on the mod as well as proper credits and thanks.

Thanks to everyone at Almost Human and
the Grimrock forums.

I know this mod may not be every ones cup-o-tea, but if a few people enjoy it I will consider it worth the many hours I spent making it.

This is my first ever mod of any kind.

Thank you for reading this far and playing "The Missing Heir"

anyway i left your mod allready. Riddles like 2ul.d.2r. .... are anything bit interesting or funny. No walkthrough means you have to go a very complicating way as a player and ask in these threads waitin for answers hours or even days. How can you play normal ... and the next trouble comes soon :(
This is sry to say so hard an imposition.

Koyangi,

Sorry you didn't enjoy the mod. I have been away at a conference the last couple days and unable to check in.

Riddles too harsh, no walkthrough resp. no help, thumbs down and bye ....
koyangi Apr 15 @ 7:07am 
Solved. But don´t find the walkthrough yet :(
koyangi Apr 15 @ 6:51am 
The fuckin gate in front of the teleport will close too fast!!! I am stucked allready that early. Why the heck modders love too make riddles so harsh???

Well, I'll be looking forward to your future mods. :) I'm sure they'll be great.
And... Just a suggestion... Make it as a continuation of this one? Something to do with the druids?

Glad you enjoyed it a.elfwind. To make the heir would have required some modeling and artistic skill which I don't possess. I have been teaching myself 3D modeling since making this mod, so maybe in future mods I might be able to produce better results.

Finished it! Great! The boss fight was interesting. :)
Though I have to say that after that, it was kinda antyclimatic... Was hoping to see the heir or something I guess. Still, it had great story. :)
