So I might use walkthroughs to have a good idea of how to finish one of these games. But while playing Guild of Thieves, I made an error in not trusting the walkthrough on one point. It suggested leaving the succulents (used to cross the hot coals) on the far side of the room of hot coals after retrieving the plastic die so they'd be there when you finish the game. Thing is, I didn't do that and they were waiting at the bank where I'd dropped everything while playing the lute.
I thought I might have to go back to my last saved game (which I didn't save often!) and replay the game from there when I realized a solution: I could drop my treasures in the boat house, go down, use the lute to cross the coals, go back to the bank, retrieve the succulents, and then go get the treasures.
Great job on updating the game!
