Lighting Candles

#1Deadmeat20Posted 2/27/2014 1:43:04 PM
So, I've been finding candles hidden in weird places. So far, I can't figure out what they do. I nail them with a fire arrow, they light up, and I hear a gasping voice say things like "Oblivion..." or "Agony...".

Is this accomplishing anything or am I just wasting lots of money on fire arrows?

Doesn't lighting candles go against the whole Thief mindset?

So... nobody has found the purpose for these things? I tell you, I feel like a pioneer.

I was just about to start a topic on this! I have been hunting them down non-stop. I haven't found a purpose for them either. I do have a theory though. I read somewhere that one of the gameplay videos showed a cheat menu with "season greetings" or something similar to that, so I figure you light all the candles and you get the cheats.

Yeah I've found 4 around Mr. Montonessi's apartment.
Edit: Make that 6 candles.

Also has anyone figured out what's up with that weird black mark on the wall in his apartment that fades when you get near it?

No idea yet. I can't wait til we figure it out though. I found one that I think said "murderers row" or something like that.. My friend found one that said "freedom".

I've found quite a few candles in Baron's Way South. So far I've heard "altar", "sacrifice", "Freedom", "Beware". A few others were mumbles and I didn't have subtitles on so I missed em at the time. Really curious as to what these do.
