    But that image shows books, and there's some wood by the fire. Maybe it's a clue!
    Wait, both the medic and sherlock holmes play the violin. But has anyone actually seen Medic's violin? Violin wood, wood barn door plank. IT MUST BE THE RIGHT ONE.
    Trying a bit too hard.

    I'm fairly useless past this point. I signed up as I had a fair knowledge of soho and wanted to sign up to say the pyro was probably not burning it down in that picture. In retrospect I could have gone down the route of catgut, cats, mice and cheese, but I just woke up.

    Cheese Wheel est. 1-2.5 Refined? I expect these prices to crash.

    I think most guests went to bed or are working.

    I think the theory about the new items (goldfish, plank..) turning into weapons when MtP is released might be true.
    Some might become weapons, other might become hats, miscs, taunts even.
    Maybe this is the only way to obtain those new possible items.

    How a small bit of pocket lint is going to turn into a weapon/misc is anyones guess.

    Seriously, there's some wacky stuff in TF2, but I don't think valve will go as far as making a cheesewheel or banana peel a weapon.

    Cheese wheel at least has precedent in the other edibles.

    Edit: While I'm here, which items don't conform to the quote exactly?
    If we're eliminating the impossible, maybe those ones have to go.

    Code:
    Goldfish         : Think of the
    Secret Diary     :          the deeds of hellish cruelty                                                                         and none the wiser
    Cheese Wheel     :                                       the hidden wickedness...    may go on...
    Banana Peel      :                                                                ...may go on...
    Pocket Lint      :                                    ...the...             ...which...
    Barn Door Plank  :                                                                          ...year in, year out...

    That's according to the wiki, I've never tested. They are all pretty scrambled if you ask me. The parts on the Cheese Wheel are also reversed and the Secret Diary apparently reads "the deeds of hellish cruelty and none the wiser" with no visible separation between both.
    There's a lot of redundancy too, like "the" being repeated and "may go on" being in both the Cheese Wheel and the Banana Peel.

    What I noticed immediately from that was that the banana peel is completely unnecessary for that quote to be complete. It's the only one which has no parts of the quote that can't be found with another item.

    Is Valve, they are pretty good when they gonna announce something big. Mystery everywhere and after that, BAM, awesomeness. Also, what if Valve wants us to discover the secret before announce it? I mean, we should have to discover all the cake and until that happens, Valve will not do a shit.

    And what if those itemes are for making our hats unusuals? Imagine: Napper's ; Effect: Rotating Cheese.

    That would be awful as hell. If they did not give us the oportunity of making unusual hats with the unusual metal, I highly doubt that they would make it now.

    Probably this objets would be a craft item to get new weapons, combined with metal (scrap or rec) or with an specific weapon.

    This is the version I and a couple others have been working with. The wiki version of some of the quotes, they assumed a couple places that should have stayed ellipses were thre-letter words (and in one case, a two-letter word).

    From the excerpt I read it was about large open spaces.

    He was talking about the relative safety in closeness, as generally people will be in earshot, and all these nice little spaced out country houses scare the crap out of him.

    That's nice for SPUF, except that the Pyro is an insane person with a flamethrower who probably won't give two shits about some dame he's never met.

    Oh wow, what if the purse belonged to Pauling all along and the Pyro kept it as a token of affection?

    That would imply that Valve had thought that up since day 1 of TF2. Besides, the purse in the class locker is merely there to bring more elements to Pyro's mysteriousness.

    Yeah, none of the classes had any names, none of the classes had any known relatives, the companies did not have much more backstory other than "Red and Blu are the two rival companies that own half of every company in the world each and are at a constant war with eachother".

    I really miss that not more people build onto the James Bond disguise secret spybases theme that although still prevalent has been severely undermined as of late. I'd like more maps that feel more like massive spybases disguised as something else, rather than different environments with secret spybase rooms hidden away in some corner only used to spawn players.

    Guys. I was just reading the TF2 wiki and noticed this

    "On a personal level, Radigan Conagher had a fascination for Abraham Lincoln. In the first edition of The Engineer Update, several pages of notes are dedicated to inventing an object that could have saved Lincoln from John Wilkes Booth. Some devices include: a hat that would shoot at the attacker, a chair that would swing over and under a balcony away from the attacker, and a teleporter. "

    Radigan built a third life extender machine...Pyro is Abraham Lincoln. The thing on his back isn't an air tank, its a portable life extender!

    And he's insane because he's a reanimated corpse. Perhaps that house that got burned down was Radigans house. It looks like a western town house!

    Something else to support this theory.

    Just look who happens to be the Pyro.
