Congratulations to our five finders of the Cedric Suffer!
And here’s the image for the Cedric Suffer mousepads! I love what our artist Matt did with the snake.
Nice work on finding this one, which was a little trickier than the last two! Want to know how they did it?
If Graham returns all the items that he can to their original owners/places where he found them, he will find himself in possession of the dreaded Cedric Suffer! Specifically, Graham can return these items: the real painting & horn, the shovel, the tinderbox, the harp, and the drum.
Congratulations to…. *drumroll!*

We’ve also got two new contests for this Episode!
The Many Deaths of Episode 4!
For this contest, we want you to submit a list of all the unique deaths you can find in Episode 4! What does that mean? It means if it’s a way you could die in a previous episode–like drowning or being bitten by the Black Widow–then it doesn’t count. But if it’s brand new, put down the screen where it happened, how it happened, and copy down the death message it gave you! Submit your list of deaths to firstname.lastname@example.org–the 3 fans who’ve submitted the most deaths by Nov. 13th will be the winners! You can submit more than once to make your list longer and increase your chances of winning at any time.
The prize? Each winner will get a t-shirt telling the world how proud they are about killing King Graham!
Watch Out, Graham, a POIsonous Suffer!
There’s a new Suffer loose in the Green Isles–and he’s just FULL of irritating advice!
If you do, take a screenshot of your inventory with the Cedric Suffer in it, and send it to us along with your save file at email@example.com. The first 5 people to correctly find and prove that they found Cedric Suffer will win “The Suffer Lining” mousepads!
Keep an eye on the forums and the blog for updates on the contests, and of course, enjoy the Episode!
Congratulations to our Tagline winner….. Mythosopher!
And the Episode 4 tagline is: When it all lies open, hope alone remains.
Excellent work, and good job knowing your Greek mythology, Mythosopher (but with a name like that, we should’ve known)!

The Many Deaths of King Graham!
We all know every adventure game involves some trial and error and finding some pitfalls and, of course, some deaths–and Episode 3 has plenty of those! So we’d like to reward you for failing with The Many Deaths of King Graham!
For this contest, we want you to submit a list of all the unique deaths you can find in Episode 3! What does that mean? It means if it’s a way you could die in a previous episode–like drowning, or being bitten by the Black Widow–then it doesn’t count. But if it’s brand new, put down the screen where it happened, how it happened, and copy down the death message it gave you! Submit your list of deaths to email@example.com–the 3 fans who’ve submitted the most deaths by March 3rd will be the winners! You can submit more than once to make your list longer and increase your chances of winning at any time.
The prize? Each winner will get a professionally printed copy of the TSL 2011 Calendar!
Everyone Needs a Little Suffering
You may have found the Suffer, but his friends and family are still loose in the Green Isles! In Episode 3, Baby Suffer (aka “Little Suffering”) is hiding somewhere in the game, and he’s even sneakier than his big brother. See if you can find the clues and find the Suffer!
If you do, take a screenshot of your inventory with the Baby Suffer in it, and send it to us along with your save file at firstname.lastname@example.org. The first 5 people to correctly find and prove that they found Baby Suffer will win “The Suffer Lining” mousepads!
