    DEMON Messiah:
    149) You can pick a lock in real life faster than Garett can in the game. (You started 'cause you wanted to be like him, but now you think you'd make an even better thief than him, until you try to get into a room full of people and find out that it's really, really hard to stay unnoticed. Damn people, too untrusting these days.)

    178) It's midnight, cloudy, the blinds are closed, there's not a light in the house, you're wearing black clothing and sunglasses, and it's still not dark enough for you!
    179) You've been treated on several occasions for injuries recieved while climbing rope arrows fashioned from those little plastic suction cup play bows.

    181) You have recently acquired both a criminal record and a court order to attend therapy.
    182) You write Thief poetry:
    I stole my neighbor's car last night,
    after playing my new computer game.
    He was evil so it's alright
    but this poem is pretty lame.

    183) You have "(Your Name) + Viktoria, 4Ever" tattooed on your ass. Well, Viktoria or Garrett, depending on your gender or preference.

    185) You've read a ton of these clues and still manage to come up with a few original ones.
    186) Your portfolio for the university art department scholarship consists only of Thief-inspired pieces... (wish me luck- hopefully the head of the department owns the game... if not.. think I should buy him one? Would that be construed as bribery? Help!)
    187) The real world is simply a cutscene.
    188) You've spent the last 3 weeks trying to create realistic Theif models in 3DStudioMax, but can't get his hood to look right!
    189) You get the hood to look right.
    190) The paintjob on your car is the same as the box cover, and you now call your auto the 'ThiefMobile of Ultimate Stealth", even though something on the axle is loose and it wakes everyone in the neighborhood when you start it up to run to the store at 4AM to get a frozen pizza 'cause you're really hungry but want something simple and tasty. Mmm.... frozen pizza...

    194) Your computer crashes, all of your taxes are lost, all of your homework, all of your business records... but you don't care, because you backed up your Thief savegames. Wahoo!!!!
    195) You've programmed your own version of Thief onto your school calculator (those of you with Texas Instruments graphing calculators know what I'm talking about).
    196) You write an expert level walkthru, all loot included, in half an hour without even turning the game on. And it's accurate.
    197) You name your baby Garrett. Your baby is female, but you don't care...twitch... it's name is Garrett! End of conversation. Ok, I'll consider Viktoria. But then she'll grow up evil, I tell you, evil!

    209) You wake up and see your family in the hall, and thinking they are ratmen/apemen, you blackjack them and scream, "Can't smell me now can you!!".
    210) You start thinking of people on this forum as family, and occasionally call your real family, "RedEye", or "Ghost", or "boojum", etc..
    211) When sneaking up on someone in the game, you swing your blackjack at them, then cursing your stupidity as you hit your monitor with your homemade blackjack.
    212) You freak out when you are taking a trip and you look at the road map, and are certain that it must be a trick, as no one would make a map with this much detail without some sort of hidden agenda.
    213) You have to go talk to your boss, and you suddenly picture him as Constantine, and freak out as he changes. Then you end up living in your car.
    214) You go to a police academy, but you fail because in the shooting gallery, you keep sneaking up on the pop-up bad guys, and trying to club them with the butt of your gun, so it doesn't make as much noise.

    224) You decide that you dont want to finish that map in the easy way now, because the long way is scarier and because the night is still young.

    Archdaemon:
    225) Plastic surgery to look like your favorite Looking Glass employee. (Be afraid, EvilSpirit. Be very afraid.)
    226) You refuse to post further 'top 1000 clues' messages because that would waste valuable Thief-playing time.
    227) You post another one anyway, just because you can.

    Lytha:
    228) ... and at 6:15 a.m. you decide that Murus is the one and only problem in RTC - he caused you to deal this much damage. (329 dealt, that is too much!). You decide that you will try the map again, and then grab every loot before stealing eye. When you lock the main entrance (5 minutes before stealing the eye), you will be able to use the entrance as exit. No Murus = no damage dealt.

    MarkA:
    232) You don't just have a dream about Thief, you dream you are wandering around a Thief-like world underground, and it's not just a dream, it's a full-fledged toss and turn, wake up sweaty and horrified /nightmare/ that sticks with you for days, and somehow involves having to backstab Minsc from Baldur's Gate. Man, what a weird, weird dream....Remind me never to play any level set after The Sword late at night again...oy.

    NightHawk:
    233) Too much Thief, how can you have too much Thief???

    GreyMouser:
    234) Your monitor starts to freak but you don't worry 'cause playing "blind thief" could be the next big challenge.
    235) and thinking about vision, you realize how appropiate it is you have no VR glasses because Garret has lost his depth vision anyway - or one of the glasses would have to go blank.

    246) You consider writing a Lonely Planet guide to The City.
    247) When swimming, you no longer dare to dive beneath the surface because the little green bubbles have vanished.

    Lytha:
    248) At work again, you are finally able to frighten some of your users in the local domain by sneaking into their offices without getting seen - until you are just beneath them.
    249) Your co-workers say that you changed whilst your vacancy, and that such a long vacancy might not be good for you. (I really have to finish my psychic runthrough...)

    251) You suddenly have a newfound respect for the stealth and tactics of O.J. Simpson, so you decide to give him a call to get some pointers. "Okay, so you reccomend a black ski cap, black leather gloves, and Bruno Mahli shoes..., I'll be sure to try those out on my next mission." (This is assuming you can get in touch with him, he's probably still busy hunting down the "real killers".

You can't just be happy that the picture is SOOOO much better, all you can think is "wherearetheshadows?""wherearetheshadows?""wherearetheshadows?""wherearetheshadows?""wherearetheshadows?".................

    305) You feel compelled to reach the end of this thread without having to kill it.

    CardinalFang:
    Heh heh.. this thread is cool! Did you know that if you keep adding to a thread it will eventually explode?
    306) While talking with co-workers, you realize that you are referring to your boss as "the Sir".
    307) You sit down in front of your computer at work, and, without thinking, start searching for your Thief CD to pop in the drive. Then you remember that 1) you have work to do, and 2) your work computer is a Mac

    309) Angry that "the Sir" terminated your employment for walking out, you sneak into his house in the middle of the night and club him on the back of the head while he's counting his money in the basement.

    Fenn:
    310) You edit the startup and shutdown graphics on your computer so that they are cutscenes from Thief.
    P.S. If you want to do this, the files you need to edit are logo.sys, logow.sys, and logos.sys. They are hidden, system, read-only files but that's easy to change with Windows Explorer.
    P.P.s. I have really done this. It looks so cool.

    311) When you boot up your computer it automatically loads Thief.

    Lytha:
    Good idea. Lets continue this thread, until the red spiders invade again.
    310) You have in this moment 6 non-finished runthroughs of Thief where you play the extreme sub-types of Thieves. You know that you will probably never find an end, because the "Assassin"-typus (kill ony one target, carry the victim to weird places; sneak around the others in the "Lytha-way") proves to be great fun, and you can't stop imaging trickier targets and locations (Ramirez into the Home turf?)

    Ishy:
    Do you realise that this thread has more posts than any of the non-LGS forums on this domain? This is insane!! It suits us perfectly!
    311) You lend someone Thief, then get so frustrated with not being able to play it that you download BOTH demos. At 1.6 kbps.

    Rolander:
    Hi! This is my first post here. I have not bought Thief but...
    312) You had a dream of a glorious blackjacking party...
    313) You dreamt of playing thief, and dreamt of fumbling to reload when you were discovered by a guard during your dream-game of thief! And you dreamt of heaving a sight of relief when you successfully reloaded your dream-game before the guard cuts you down...
    P.S. I only played the demos, but I had both dreams not 6 hours ago q8-7
    P.S.S. I wonder what would have happened if I was actually killed by the guard in my dream-game... Maybe I would have woken up screaming...

    redEye:
    LOL... rock-crawler, i'm about to do #293 (new video card) - maybe i'll actually be able to play Thief on my machine now. my roommate should be really happy about that...
    314) You return to the board and are ... speechless to find this thread still alive and kicking. It's worse than a zombie!

Yes folks, this is truly the forum from hell. Very undead, and bound to make to make you wake, screaming, in the dark of night as you realize that, yes you too have one more contribution to make........

    Thumper:
    321) You've memorized all of the guards sayings. You even have the motions down. Now you're working on making your voice sound like several different people for that extra bit of realism.
    322) You contemplate digging a tunnel from the bottom of your swimming pool to your neighbors...

    Fingers Ferkin:
    323) You join a forum where everyone is much more experienced at THIEF than you are and you think you know what they're on about...

    Knife:
    324) You constantly shush your friend who's sitting beside you making comments on the game while you're playing Thief, and you keep saying "Shhh! They'll hear you talking! Shut up!" over and over again to your friend.

    548) You've been to almost every Thief forum out there and feel compelled to post atleast once on every "1000 clues you've been playing Thief way too much" thread. And believe me, there are a lot of Thief forums with a lot of "clues" out there.

    549) You play the "maximum evidence style".

    557) you go through the entire game in your sleep, working out before unheard-of ways of killing the undead that actually work.
    558) you realize the only way were going to make it to 1,000 is for as many of us as possible to stay up all night posting as fast as we can.
    559) You don't realize it is a bad thing to stay up until 11:20 P.M. posting on this list is a bad thing!!!

    I realized the moment I fell into the fissure that the Book would not be destroyed as I had planned...

    586) You unzip the file books.crf file and read all the documents inside. Then you go back and play each level on all three dificulties just to see if you can find all the messages.

    I'm guilty of the last one. I still haven't made it through every level though.

    Alchemyst:
    587) You've bookmarked your favorite Thief URL's but find that it's faster to type in the addresses. (Which you just happen to have memorized.)
    588) You can type 75 wpm with one hand and have remapped the keyboard so that you can complete any mission without using the mouse.
    589) You took the time to learn to type one handed so that you could play and eat frozen pizza at the same time.

    I'm guilty of that last one too.

    590) You post a topic to this list, then come up with a new topic just as you hit the submit button. So you go back and post a message right after your last post. Soon you are the only one posting to this list.
    591) You go to your local library and check out every book that pertains to thieves, weird religions, masonry, ghosts, etc.

    If you're a science fiction fan check out the Stainless Steal Rat series by Harry Harrison. The first book is "A Stainless Steal Rat is Born."

    593) You are registered on this forum under multiple names so that you can post (anonymously) to yourself when no one else is answering your questions.

    IP: Logged
    Sharga:
    593) You are extremely interested in Marquees and their effect

    Rolander
    594) You have another dream about a night of tomb raiding with:
    1) Arrow traps
    2) Zombies (and I even dreamt that I was shooting them with fire arrows, aiming for their navels, and when surrounded though of flash bombs!!!)
    3) Roof hopping
    --------
    This is especially weird since I only played the demos of Bafford & Assassins. Hence no contact with arrow traps & zombies, and have never tried roof hopping...

    It's real, of course. I just woke up after dreaming it...
