You killed Morgan Pendleton with steam

When you head down to the steam room to eliminate Morgan Pendleton you will see a room to the left as you head down the stairs. Go into this room and you will find a steam pipe and a Crank Wheel, pick up the wheel and place it on the pipe and turn it. This will pump steam into the room with Morgan Pendleton inside and net you this achievement.

Thanks to Jake2355 for the following tip:
He isn't always in the steam room for everyone. You can take him down with a sleeping dart and relocate his unconscious body into the steam room and use the valve.

Thanks to xblChoas for this video walkthrough
RaajTMI am doing a non lethal play through but thought I'd do this with a save and reload afterwards. However Morgan isn't in the steam room he is upstairs with a lady in the Ivory room. Not sure what makes this change other than telling Slackjaw you're willing to get your hands dirty instead of opting for the non lethal way. When I was approaching the golden cat on rooftops I could hear the Madame talking about moving him there as well, so not sure if a different route makes a difference?

JakeythedudeJust a note, he isn't always in the steam room for everyone. You might want to add that you can take him down with a sleeping dart and relocate his unconscious body into the steam room and use the valve.

RaajTMOh nice! Thanks for the tip. Wasn't sure if he was not there due to route or lethal versus non lethal, he'd be located elsewhere. Thanks Jake2355 again.

CanadianCitizenDoes this void the non-lethal playthrough?

Shadow XBLyou must have the Gold Cat Master Key. That is a very important piece of information.

wvu76@jake2355 GREAT tip he wasn't down there for me either. I went back up to the Ivory room, used the sleeping darts and brought him back down to the sauna. Worked like a charm.

splicegraphI had to use a sleeping bolt on Morgan in the Ivory Room after acquiring the master key and taking out a few guards to clear a path to the steam room. Also had to kill the guard and prostitute already in the room. Very tedious. XP

Nisbet82No need for the Gold Cat Master Key, simply jump up on the crates to the left of the door and then up onto the pipes and through the hole that the pipes go through.

Nisbet82Also worth noting that there are a couple of fish in the pool in the circular pool in the centre of the steam room area that can be posessed for the " Alive Without Breath " achievement.

H4rcadeSo is it possible to get this achievement and still get 'The Art of the Steal' ?
Posted by H4rcade on 18 Mar 14 at 15:05
Warboy925@ Sup3rnaut.......yes, it is possible....BUT..........you need to save beforehand....then follow the steps shown to kill Morgan Pendleton with steam........then reload your save, and follow the steps to achieve 'The Art of the Steal'.......I was too lazy to care about an all stealth approach so I killed/knocked out most of the guards (if not all)...saved the game....put a sleep dart into Morgan because he was in the Ivory Room, dropped him into the steam room (boy was I glad I saved bc I dropped him in the water by mistake first, lol), got the achievement, reloaded my save, then took care of the art dealer, so I got both achievements at the same time

Warboy925@ CanadianCitizen..............yes it does void the non-lethal playthrough........do NOT throw him bc it will kill him as Rental 360 stated, and DO NOT drop him into the water!!!

But I wonder since I did the save and reload method, will I still be able to achieve the "Poetic Justice" as well since I am on my non-lethal save......???
