I have just lost my map for the cargo hold because I stumbled onto guard dogs 3 time...sigh Too bad I didn't side with the Tigers. I guess their influence extends to the ship's cargo hold. Are the Steepers asleep at the wheel?? Can't they find something to neutralize these dogs!! Darn it wait till I get back to Shangri La you useless Steepers grrrr.

Its weird, for me I cannot go in the catacombs because I'm absolutely TERRIBLE at it. However, on the ship in the Cargo Hold, I've been in 3 times and been sucessful each time. And I do have HN. So I do agree with you Miss Snopes, I do think its random based on each detective.

I only know how it is to walk the catacombs of Cairo, and since I have worked on a "MapWalker", a program that draws the map for me when I walk there (no, you don't have to fear, I will not do another attempt to push this kind of stuff to you), I did some studies of what kind of maps you could get in the Catacombs. And, I found that I could have maps where there was only one trap (where I would have been bound to find the treasure), and I had maps with 5 or 6 traps, where it was very difficult to find a treasure if you did not have Trap Detection.
This was what I got when I had those maps you get from favors. I don't know if the maps get different when you are searching for shoes.... ;-)

I'm right there with you LJ, I am TERRIBLE in the catacombs too.

It's a waste of my time and skill points (not that I need the latter) to even enter them, not to mention my blood pressure after the 3rd time they string me up. I told the Professor just last week I would double my payment in skill points if he would just not hire me the next time I ask.

When I first went inside the catacombs, I was going around in circles. I do not even know what an artifact looks like! I remember telling Miss Snopes that it's impossible for us (with HN) to get an artifact. I got discouraged. I was even surprised that no players with HN skill raised an issue. I wondered how they were able to do it.

However, for some strange ways, I got lucky and had opportunities to get artifacts and some books. Now I know it is possible.

So, players with HN skill, don't lose hope. Yes, it is possible!!! ;)

The shoes you get are only +1 in charm or tough above what you can get in AVHs. They don't really do anything for you, they're just "bling." Yes, I have mine but I didn't notice any change in my game. Like I said they're just decoration, definately NOT worth stressing over.

add. The boots/shoes are nice, the stress I was refering to was Miss Snopes BP.

Sorry if I offended anyone, my brain and the keyboard are not in sync. The boots/shoes are good.

'nuff said.

"things seem to come in shifts for my det"

Umm... that IS random. Have you ever done that math teacher trick, flip a coin 100 times and see which way up it lands?

Yep. Tails tends to have a slight edge over heads. ;)

You're right Sophie, shoes aren't worth bad health. haha I was just aiming for the humerous with the BP talk.

See, you must be using different coins then me... mine are always heads up! ;)

Of course if there were more of a choice besides shoes, say Gucci bag or Prada jacket, then TD would win hands down. :P

People that have made the mistake to follow the Steepers are simply trying to put some credit in their false decision !

Nothing is ever changing in this stoned game !
