just dump the pieces into the crate. At least one of my pieces has part of the picture ripped off and missing from the cardboard backing
Having an obviously brand new jigsaw puzzle included in the experience was dumb (even if the pieces had been appropriately aged it would still make no sense). Tossing the bare pieces into the crate was dumb. The artifact (at least what we actually received) was dumb.

I seem to be always late to the party. However, I'm just not getting to the puzzle. I tried it once before and then started packing to move to a different state and, well, just now got around to it to start again.
I'm suddenly feeling like a fool to discover that it's
And there was no spoiler to that (or even picture of the final product, so to speak) on this thread. Shocked, I tell you!
So, not finished but still working on it. Quite a ways into it so far. Still not sure if I have all the pieces (and not necessary because of anything MPC did or didn't do, but I did move!). But it looks like it's going to be interesting. As the child of a family of architects, I have been simultaneously overjoyed and disappointed at various aspects of this particular experience.
Having just completed the Carcosa experience that I was sent anonymously (*squee*), I can say that I feel King in Yellow and Carcosa are still the best two experiences MPC has produced so far. The rest just seem flat or an incredible waste of paper (huge maps, blueprints, etc) for very little return.

So, I don't know if anyone noticed this - but they have it on sale right now for Halloween, and they've presented this caveat:
"Note: If you’ve previously participated in Filigree in Shadow, you may notice a few subtle differences. To ensure the quality of the experience remains to our high standards (and yours) and in an effort to lower the price point, and to make it accessible to even more horror fans, a few elements of the original kit have been omitted. It’s also been streamlined for a more consistent experience."
I'm a horror fanatic, as are several members of my family, and I was going to order this for one of them, after years of putting it off myself. But...now I'm not sure I should bother. Does anyone have any insights into this change? I'm not sure how removing elements from a 'horror' experience makes it 'more accessible' to horror fans, and I'm not sure I want to pay three hundred bucks to find out. :/
I purchased this in April 2021 as part of a promo that also included the paper craft house, a tin, and a stand for the artifact. I got actual paper blueprints and a not a jig saw puzzle. I was looking at some old posts from the original kickstarter version and people mentioned a black reveal envelope? What was in it? Thanks!

@fiofthewi Originally the premise of MPC was that your received these games as a surprise and each experience included a black envelope with a sealed letter (mpc wax seal) that provided a link that revealed the sender. They stopped doing these around 2019.
diggitydoodog: I've had dubious documents for 2 years now and finally went to work on it. Would anyone on here be willing to PM me the answer or post it in a spoiler so I can check the solution?
