    I know this is a little off-topic but what's the source of the sound file "main2_3"? (The very creepy music that play in the thieve's den below the bar)
    I've been trying to find it for ages but alas no success

    to the Lady...

    9/30

    Good evening,

    I'm give-or-take about 1/2-way thru evening 2 of this Fantastical mission, and I just Had to write...couldn't contain myself

    I'm basically new to the Thief series in general, having only played my 1st Thief [Gold] about 6 months ago, when Steam had a huge bundled sale.
    In that time I've played Thief Gold, Metal Age (my favorite), Thief III,...even the newest Thief (4)
    Also played T2X...and the 2 in the COSAS series...
    ...and about 2 weeks ago for the 1st time, started the general fan missions

    Yours is about the 4-5th played

    I did ALOT of research before choosing fan missions, figuring I'd start with the best-of-the best by the most opinions.

    In any case...long-winded intro aside, by leaps-n-bounds yours is the best so far!
    There is just SOOOO much I love about this mini-series, including

    1. The city design
    2. the beautiful outre' art that creeps in just when you don't expect it (like the Doctor's dungeon-like room)
    3. the evolving mission goals, each one being so logical in its evolution
    4. the fact that buildings that intrigued you in Night 1 that were 'closed to the public' all of a sudden open up on subsequent nights
    5. The delicate balance between the immensity of the places one needs to traverse...and still keeping it manageable
    6. the multiple (Deus Ex -like ways) one can achieve the goals

    and I haven't even mentioned the whole medieval steam punk atmosphere!

    This is just such a classic mission (me...whose only played 4 speaking!)...I'm not quite 1/2-way thru and I'm dreaming of replaying it again

    I cannot thank you enough for all the enjoyment this mission has given me.

    Which I'll end with...

    might as well search out YOUR other Thief missions...are their any YOU feel are of, or close to, this quality of YOURS?

    Cordially

    Ericjmz

    PS: for the record, again off a Steam sale, playing Gothic II for the 1st time...your fan mission blows away that commercial game!

    finished...and...

    10/7

    I just finished this abso-FRIGGIn-lutely SUPERB fan mission last nite...I'm guessing the whole thing took me about 8-10 hours...possibly I underestimate.
    Could it BE more wonderful?!?- I don't think so.

    In fact, just as I was getting bogged down in Night 3, thinking it had dipped in quality from the esteemed heights of level II, I came to its last 1/4,not to mention the ending boss scene...and to quote Alice Cooper, 'Loved it to Death'!

    So...and I know you're dying to hear this...when's the next mission?
    I mean you've had a 7 year rest, right?

    It'll be easy, in 3 simple steps:

    Step 1:
    abandon your (semblance of) a life, as you know it

    Step 2:
    announce a comeback mission; commit, your honor depends on it...

    Step 3:
    Do it.

    ...admittedly, Step 3 might take a little bit longer than steps 1 &2, I'll grant you that.

    On my part, I'm certainly willing to 'hold-my-breadth' till you do, so, here's the countdown for breadth-holding...

    10..9...8.7...6.5...4...3....2 1/2...2...1 1/4...1...errr.......

    Yes, definitely do that.

    Rowena's Curse is awesome. Less polished than The Seven Sisters and one might think it starts a bit innocently, but then the story gradually builds up to something amazing (and dark/sinister). Gameplay is fun as well.

    The Tower is also a favourite. Small (for contest reasons), with nice vertical gameplay and it's astonishing how much story the relatively small space holds.

    ....you were RIGHT!
    Exactly as you said....just finished it (R.C.) after 4 hours of gameplay (over a week)
    It started out very drab & non-descript.
    ...and then it just became fantastic.

    I don't think I'm imagining this...but this is a Thief Fan Mission riff on 'Jane Eyre'...right?
    Move over Ms. Bronte...Lady Rowena did you one better!

    Plus....the picture in Rowena's room IS the game author(ess)!
    Don't tell me I'm imagining it...I prefer the fantasy

    I have a bit of a problem in-game and I'm playing on easy difficulty, on night 1. After I healed a few of the plagued citizens (like the objectives told me to), the objectives don't tick off. Anyone have a solution for this?

    Did you already cure Jennivere?

    Yep. Does it have something to do with the order I do it in?

    It shouldn't. It should check off once it's done, regardless of order.

    Well, it looks like I'll have to give it a second replay to check if anything was wrong.

    ***SPOILERS*** Seven Sisters Question! ***SPOILERS***

    So, did I screw up by killing 3 Plagued citizens? Or are there enough of them to cure 4 others? I'm playing on expert and have invested around 3 hours into this mission so far :-l

    Do I have to restart or is there a mission failed screen if you kill too many!?

    This depends on the difficulty setting. There are 8 infected humans.

    Are there more on higher difficulties?

    And thanks! I lured two of them to patrolling guards for sneaksie purposes because I thought the heal people part is optional at first...a third one was killed right at the beginning by overly ambitious guards. Also, how do you do that blue spoiler-cover thing?

    No. They're always 8. I misread the difficulty setting you're playing. You should start over if you want to accomplish the optional objectives.

    Soccorro, read the forum rules. Please do as Unna suggested here and find the main thread for the mission and post your questions there from now on. We like to keep all questions related to a mission in one thread to make it easier for others to find answers in the future.

    Highlight the text and click the Spoil button (Blue S on the right end of the formatting options).

    Spoilers: select the text you want to hide by dragging the pointer over it, then click the square blue icon with the white S in it in the toolbar above your draft post. Voila!

    Ah, Yandros beat me to it.

    I've moved this to the thread for general comments and Night 1. The first post in this thread gives links to Night 2 and Night 3, if you should need help with those.

    Edit. For spoiler cover (for anyone reading this) it's probably better to have too much than too little.
