Description : I was on my way tonight to rob another rich lord. Just a little job,
pay would have been good. I had to take to the sewers, since the streets
were red hot. An important official in the city has been murdered, and
the Sheriff's men are out looking for the Murderer. So I was taking a
unfamiliar route through the sewer, and in the darkness I stumbled. I
fell through a hole in the sewer floor. I was hurt, but upon taking a
healing potion, felt better. The problem I have now is I can't get back
up! I have rope arrows, but they do me no good here. Im left to wander
around down here and try to find a way out. Rumor has it that there was
a team of city workers down here long ago, and they vanished. No one heard
from them again. Guess since i'm down here already, it wouldnt hurt to
find out what happened. My map really doesnt show my way around down here
since the place isn't mapped. I do know that if I travel East and through
the East Hills, I may come out somewhere near Bloodstone Prison. And then
i'll know my way back to the city. And I guess it wouldn't hurt to pick up
some valuables while i'm down here...

*important* This fm uses a special version of Dark.cfg which is included. I
played an fm that uses it while building mine and mine changed itself to
this dark file. So when you play this, be careful to not save your mission while

tell it to :(
As far as I know, everything works fine. If something doesnt work for you, let me
