List of the Secrets in "Blackmail"

View ID Location Specifics reward
The Grave
1 Outside of Truart's Mansion, S Either take the shortcut way into the mansion (through the bushes at the house in the S infront of the Mansion), or swim the river towards the S. The way between these two points has one section with a very small crawl tunnel. Look out in the area S of this tunnel for places where you can mantle up on the rocks to the S. Your reward is a creepy feeling, plus 2 moss arrows and 3 flares.
Torture Chamber
The Torture Chamber
2 Access: 1st floor E, dining room In the fireplace of the dining room is a switch. When you pull it, the secret will reveal itself for you - instantly. Your reward is a very creepy feeling and a fire arrow, and also (for the cheeky gamers) a gas mine.
The Crypt
3 Access: 1st floor N, chapel Shoot the hammer symbol at the wall (behind the huge hammer) with a broadhead, and the huge hammer will move to the left. At its former position is now the entrance into the crypt. It is recommended to be a little bit careful down there... Your reward is an invisibility potion, a silver nugget, and a golden skull.

Oh, and did I already mention that you are also rewarded with a creepy feeling? ;)
The Gem
4 1st floor N, empty guest room Frob the torch, and a secret compartment opens at the other side of the bed. Your reward is a gem.
Benny's Necklace
The Crayman's Necklace
5 (Only available in Hard and Expert). 2nd floor E, gambling room. In Hard: You may need some target practice with your bow. Shoot the bulls eye of the target.

In Expert: Mike C., the creator of this mission likes Benny. You should also like Benny, because he is your friend. So, help him by cleaning up the mess he has produced.
Your reward is a necklace.
The Armory
6 2nd floor, SW Shoot the center of the target in the Armory. A secret compartment opens right behind you. Your reward is a gas mine.
Bonus objective: The open grave
7 Outside of the Mansion S, graves Grab Truart and head to the graveyard. When you bury him in the open grave, you will get a bonus objective (completed). Your reward is a warm and gushy feeling (plus the fact that you sucessfully interrupted the progress of official criminalistic investigations on the death of Truart).
