    Default Low-Key path

    Apparently, lots more locks/keys at tower door.
    Keys are quest item accessories.
    You lose them when you unlock a lock.

    (Can you go get another one to use in aftercore? Or, if you do, do they disappear like Plumber quest items when you free the king?)

    Here is a spreadsheet where lock/key info is being collected.

    Revision 20099 adds the 17 keys which were there when I last looked. There will be 6 more.

    I think the built-in tower door script will need an update.
    Some sort of key collection tracking.
    Perhaps a command to tell you what you have, what you need, where to find them - sort of like "latter unlocks".

    Until I see whether there is a liited path reward, I'm not going to be diving right into this, I think.

    Huh. Revision 20101 has Manual of Lock Picking and Lock Picking Skill.

    I guess that using the latter will redirect to a choice adventure to let you pick a lock to pick.
    Is it only usable if the Tower Door is accessible?
    The skill says "usable once per Life".
    Is it upgrade if you learn the skill multiple times (i.e. have a skillLevel, like 12 other skills)?
    Does it auto-perm?

    We'll find those things out soon enough.

    This looks amusing enough that I'll probably try it out tomorrow. Since their's a whole path focused on the Tower Door, perhaps we should create a TowerDoorManager out of what is currently part of SorceressLairManager. I think I'll do that and then we'll have a lot of subsequent work in that class.

    Revision 20102 does that: TowerDoorManager has all of our current support for the Tower Door.

    Revision 20103 adds the remaining six keys. TowerDoorManager now has all the data from the spreadsheet.
    I'll look at the door later today after I ascend to get the actions needed to activate the 23 new keys.

    I saved the form for the Tower Door in Low-Key. Every lock - the 6 old ones, the 23 new ones, and the doorknob has a different action than on the normal Tower Door. It's a different "place", as well.

    Revision 20105 saves all the scraped info in data structures and comments.
    I'm clearly going to have to refactor how things work. I'm glad I moved the Tower Door stuff into a new package.

    FYI, here is the page HTML (formatted slightly). I love how the divs are sorted numerically: 1, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 2, 20, 21, 22, 23, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9.

    Revision 20106 adds the "tower" or "lowkey" command which will print a table describing each lock on the Tower Door (6 for a normal run, 29 for a Low Key run). It will tell you if you have the needed key and/or have already used the needed key. For Low Key locks, it will tell you where to find the key and what the enchantments (as an accessory) each key has.

    Note that we do not yet record when you have used a key in the Low Key path; the PlaceRequest for the tower door in that path is not yet supported.

    Revision 20107 mostly (should) support the Low-Key tower door.

    I need the text you get when you use the 6 regular keys, the 23 special keys, and the doorknob in Low-Key.

    For comparison, here is what we have when inserting keys in the regular tower door:

    Code:
    		// Boris's Lock: You place Boris's key in the lock and turn
    		// it. You hear a jolly bellowing in the distance as the lock
    		// vanishes, along with the metal plate it was attached
    		// to. Huh.
    
    		// Jarlsberg's Lock: You put Jarlsberg's key in the lock and
    		// turn it. You hear a nasal, sort of annoying laugh in the
    		// distance as the lock vanishes in a puff of
    		// rotten-egg-smelling smoke.
    
    		// Sneaky Pete's Lock: You put the key in the lock and hear the
    		// roar of a motorcycle behind you. By the time you turn around
    		// to check out the cool motorcycle guy he's gone, but when you
    		// turn back to the lock it is <i>also</i> gone.
    
    		// Star Lock: You put the key in and turn it. There is a flash
    		// of brilliant starlight accompanied by a competent but not
    		// exceptional drum solo, and when both have faded, the lock is
    		// gone.
    
    		// Skeleton Lock: You put the skeleton key in the lock and turn
    		// it. The key, the lock, and the metal plate the lock is
    		// attached to all crumble to dust. And rust, in the case of
    		// the metal.
    
    		// Digital Lock: You put the digital key in the lock and turn
    		// it. A familiar sequence of eight tones plays as the lock
    		// disappears.
    
    		// You turn the knob and the door vanishes. I guess it was made out of the same material as those weird lock plates.
    I would not be surprised if Low-Key has the same messages - but I would also not be surprised if it had different messages, since the "action" is different.

    I'll collect all the messages myself by doing the door in the Relay Browser, by and by, in a few days.

    I'm thinking it would be nice to have a way to easily identify which keys haven't been picked up yet (the information is in the table, but it requires more careful reading). Sorting to top/bottom, a parameter that excludes obtained keys, I'm not sure what would make most sense.

    Revision 20111 adds "tower needed" which will not list keys that you either have or have already used to open a lock.
    It also fixes the HTML "action" fields for each lock so that it properly detects when you've used a key.
    That means you should look at the Tower Door again in order to properly set the "nsTowerDoorKeysUsed" property.
