This is my tribute to Sir Taffsalot (Gary Pugh), whom we recently lost. He was a valuable contributor in mission creation, beta testing, and idea contribution. You are tasked with recovering Sir Taffsalot's ceremonial sword, which has been stolen from him and spirited away to the mansion of one Lord Asher. While dealing with (or avoiding) Asher's guards, you need to find the sword and a couple special objects related to Sir Taffsalot. Since Asher isn't a nice fellow, there is (of course) the need to also find evidence he is up to no good.


The FM is an entirely standalone storyline, not part of any series.

Grayman created this mission in memory of Gary, a.k.a. Sir Taffsalot, deceased community member, multiple FM author and talented musician, whom the TDM community lost in early 2018. We'll never forget you, Sir Taffsalot.
