    Thief 1 FM: Prowler of the Dark (30/12/08)

    Hi, Taffers!

    My Christmas speedbuilding exercise concluded, here is the result: Prowler of the Dark, a small mission for Thief: the Dark Project (you don't need Gold to play it: all necessary files are found in the archive). So... get your climbing gear ready, and enjoy!

    The clients who require my services can come up
    with some pretty extravagant demands. Tonight, I am to steal
    some old skull or another - supposedly invested with dark
    enchantment. Whatever, as long as it pays - a fool and his money
    is easily parted, and who am I to lecture folks on their
    foolishness?

    Guarding the skull are a coterie of Hammerites - doubtless out
    for an intruder to "teach their tenets". Still, even if they
    guard that mouldy relic with all their care, there is bound to be
    a loophole for a careful thief. There is always one...
    NOTE: the original version of the mission does not work properly if you are using regular Thief: The Dark Project. Please download the fixed version from one of the mirrors below, or apply the Gold patch to your installation. If you have Thief Gold, you should not encounter problems either way.

    Series information:
    All of my missions except Unbidden Guest (TMA) take place in a common setting and involve the same protagonist, although under different aliases - Talbot, Messer Johannes, Philby and others. None of them require previous knowledge of previous FMs, but there are common elements and a degree of continuity. The missions, in current order, are:
    1. Prowler of the Dark (TDP/Gold) (S): liberate a skull of paganic enchantment from an abandoned church, which is kept sealed and guarded by the Builders. (You are here!)
    2. Return to the City (The Dark Mod) (M): plunder the other side of the Builder complex to steal a pack of explosives. Patrols have been heightened because of the recent break-in. (This mission connects to the previous along the North/South axis - too bad I didn't have the time to let you revisit some old areas)
    3. Fiasco at Fauchard Street (The Dark Mod) (M): steal a collection of opals from the house of a wealthy usurer.
    4. Bad Debts (TMA) (XL): fallen on hard times, you take a job from a diminutive snitch to steal his letter of debt from Markus, a pawnshop owner/usurer (looks like a common theme). Rooftop extravaganza.
    5. Disorientation (TMA) (XL): following the events in the previous mission, you attract the unwanted attentions of Lady Azamlarg, district warden and judge, and have to break into her palace to deter her from further assassination attempts. More rooftops and conspiracies.

    I'm suprised you could make such a mission in 5 days and i feel i haven't seen the half of it yet! I really like climbing and this mission offers it nearly full-scale. And although it has no background music, i still love the wind sometimes (is it?) and makes the atmosphere nice. Gonna play it further and further rob every coin in this mission hah.

    Hello, folks!

    I added an updated version to the FM. It features a bug fix, but also, more importantly, Italian language support by Krenim!

    I noticedA large area over a red roof and under a small arch...with further walkways and potted plants on windowsills etc...are we able to get over that roof?...I can get between the roof and the arch,near where a patrolling rooftop archer is, and a large buzzing lamp..... but wont let me quite go over and I just wondered if it was possible?



    Lovely mission by the way!

    If where you mean is where I am thinking, then the answer is yes, but you can't get back, so save before you go. Keep climbing after getting the gas arrow.

    Getting the gas arrow was automatic for me, yeha. I explored as much places as i could get to or the map allowed. Buhaha.
    Yeah, nice little mission, thanks!
    The Pagan skull was kind of easy to steal, though. Just ignore/lean by the lonely undead hammerite (lol, why don't the local coward hammers do anything about it?). I spared only 1 armed one conscious. And i even killed one bitchy bowman on a roof... and ignored the undead. Poor lonely soul, meh.

    Very nice little mission, I really enjoyed it. Too bad that it was so small. Please next time take more time and make it larger.

    PS - How the hell did you manage to skip the haunt? I had to kill him. But it was my pleasure, of course.

    Odd, I was able to ghost him to get the skull. Tripping the door switch to the tree room made him look around, but once he calmed down he was again easy enough to slip past.

    Is anybody else unable to get under the shelf with the wine casks in the back room of the pub? No matter what combo of moves I try - nada. Got the main objective, but short of loot.
