M4AdolphoEdit

Description: Adolpho's personal notes

Location: near Adolpho's dead body, in a remote trap chamber (the fire arrows room)

Area below the Burricks' tunnels ("Where am I?")

M4Adolpho location

I've decided to take the plunge. If my records are correct, there 

should be a stash of fire crystals in the lowest oubliette, which was sealed 

for centuries but has been since opened up by the burricks. I'll need the 

crystals for the torches, if I'm going to get the Mystic's Soul.

M4ALARUSEdit

Description: A stone writing plate, torn from its previous location by a past collapse

Location: on the possible entrance to the Alarus family tomb (which is inaccessible)

Upper South Vaults

M4ALARUS location

ALARUS

M4EDINEEdit

Description: A stone plate describing the entrance to the Edine family tomb

Location: Unused! It does not appear in the game or DromEd.

EDINE


M4FELIXEdit

Description: Felix's diary

Location: near Felix's dead body, in a large hall haunted of zombies

The Halls of Echoing Repose

M4FELIX location

I'm so close! I hears the sound of the Horn, echoing all around. 

That coward Sutter, he left me an hour ago, after Cather blundered into a 

trap, but you can bet I'll be finding the prize on my own!


It seems that I'm not the first grave-robber to muck about in these halls. The 

infamous Adolpho was down here, probably after one of the richer but 

heavily warded treasures. It looks like he failed, the poor bugger.


This part of the tombs is filled with traps, and there's no way I'm 

plundering some of these crypts, but the Horn's gonna be mine, I know it. If 

the rumors are true, the sound of the Horn should be keeping any local Burricks 

happy and peaceful-like, with no thoughts of bothering old Felix.


My only trouble now be my dwindling supply of holy water. I thought there would 

be a font in this area, but I'm blasted if I can find it. And the dead seem to be getting 

restless about something.

M4HEARTEdit

Description: The personal notes of a poor unknown thief (not from Felix's crew)

Location: near an unknown person's dead body, in the so-called "wrong statues" chamber( access trough the main Burrick tunnel, to the far north)

The Burricks' tunnels ("Where am I?")

M4HEART location

It appears I was wrong about the Mystic's Heart, and I will 

die for my mistake. The ancient tablet I found said that the Heart would 

be in "a room of statues, whose gaze is death," but though there are 

statues here, it's clear to me now that this is not that place. I dare not 

go back down -- the burricks prowl below in numbers, angered at my intrustion. 

Unless they leave, I will starve in this Godforsaken place.

M4MARADEdit

Description: A stone writing, carved in the floor by the ones who made the chambers,

Location: on the entrance to the Marad family tomb

The Halls of Echoing Repose

M4MARAD location

MARAD

M4MARCUSEdit

Description: Marcus's diary

Location: near Marcus's dead body, in a chasm that ends with a pit of water and cliffs

The Burricks' tunnels ("Where am I?")

M4MARCUS location

Felix doesn't care, but we've definitely found signs that Adolpho 

has been here before us. I don't know if he found that fabulous gemstone he 

always said was here, but if it's still here, it's worth more than the lousy 

Horn of Quintuplets, or whatever the thing is called. If I'm reading the 

signs right, Adolpho was convinced something useful was deep down below the 

Burrick tunnels.

M4QTUSEdit

Description: A stone writing, carved in the wall by the ones who made the chambers

Location: on the entrance to the tomb

Quintus family tomb

M4QTUS location

Quintus

M4QUINTEdit

Description: A Hammer note regarding the completion of the Quintus family tomb

Location: Unused! It does not appear in the game or DromEd.

Quintus' tomb completed today. Family complained, but they 

will pay our price. An expensive construction, but well planned. 

T'was fortunate for him we had space in the northwest corner. 

Several novices have complained of the noise, but they have not yet 

learned discipline. Ordered more lye. There come groans from the 

Thieves Reward, and the unrepentant oft do not lie easy.

M4STATUEEdit

Description: A warning, carved in the floor by the ones who made the chambers

Location: on the entrance to the guardian statues room

The Halls of Echoing Repose

M4STATUE location

He upon whom the gaze of the Guardians falls, he shall be destroyed.

M4SUTEXPEdit

Description: Sutter's diary

Location: near Sutter's dead body, in an upper remote chamber

Upper South Vaults

Difficulty: These are the contents of Sutter's diary that appear when playing on Expert. They are more specific about the horn's location that the other two.

M4SUTEXP location

I've had enough. If Felix wants to stay and be killed, 

that's his business, but the pay's not good enough to keep me down here 

a minute more. We already lost Dranko to those damn belching burricks, 

and Marcus didn't make the jump across that huge chasm. He probably drowned, 

if he wasn't dashed to bits. (I thought about looking for his body, as he 

was carrying some loot from a poorly-guarded tomb, but it wasn't worth the 

risk.)


Then we watched Cather get filled with arrows from a clever trap in one of 

those great octagonal vaults. Not that I cared one whit for Cather, the 

bastard, but I have no intention of ending up the same way.


I don't expect I'll see Felix again. He seemed sure that the Horn of Quintus 

was somewhere north of the Vaults, but I think that was just a guess. (I 

thought those strange X-shaped marks off that branch of the burrick tunnels 

were worth investigating, but Felix said they were irrelevant.) Anyway, 

if the traps and zombies don't get him, the burricks will. Those tunnels 

were a nightmare. At least our marks were mostly still intact.


I'm almost out, but I need to sleep. I think the place I've found is out 

of the way enough that the zombies won't find me.

M4SUTHAREdit
