    478. At random times through out the day, you start itemizing the number of things needed to complete your mission and calculating the number of hours you will need to stay up to get it ready to beta within a week

    479. When a friend of your roommate asks you what you are playing you tell them "Dromed" and assume they will know what you are talking about without further explaination.

    480. You postpone eating, sleeping, work, and school so that you may worship at the shrine of dromed.

    481. Since installing dromed, you have seen the sun rise more times than in all previous years combined (by "seen" I mean reflected in the monitor while you continue to level edit)

    482. You spend from 5:00 to 5:45 AM every day practicing your Garrett voice.

    483. You can already do Karras.

    484. When you boot up windows, the first thing you do, every time, is hit WindowsKey > Program Files > Looking Glass Studios > DownArrow > Enter > Enter, and DromEd starts up.

    485. You know that if you insert another DownArrow before the last Enter, you will open up your C:\Program Files\Looking Glass Studios\Thief Gold folder instead in Windows Explorer (because you found out that you could add C:\WINDOWS\EXPLORER.EXE /n,/e, prior to the target line of the shortcut).

    486. You know how to remap the DromEd movement keys, but you won't because it was the same configuration Mike Ryan and Greg LoPiccolo used when they designed Assassins.

    487. You can easily pick out individual guards and BoundsTriggers in window screens.

    488. You only play FMs to find out new things to do with DromEd.

    489. You often spend all day setting up a great new effect that you don't intend to use until Mission 23 of your mission pack just to "see if it will work."

    490. You check both the TTLG and Eidos forums religiously.

    491. You write your formal research paper for English Composition on Looking Glass Studios.

    492. In the journal assignments you turn in each Friday, an inordinate amount of space is devoted to describing in painstaking detail your progress in your FM the day before.

    493. You are described throughout your college as the "Gaming God." Instead of pleasing you, this irritates you, because you are NOT playing games. You are DromEditing. There is a difference.

    494. You have a pet camel.

    495. You have named him Garrett.

    496. You start your friends on games like Deus Ex and System Shock II just so you can get them deeper and deeper into the world of Looking Glass and hopefully some day addict them to DromEd.

    497. After doing well on an exam, you remind yourself to save both your gamesys and your .MIS file. You then do so.

    498. You spent hours finding the Bright texture convertor and then taught yourself to use it so you could put custom textures in your mission.

    499. You feel a closeness to the people at your home forum which rivals family ties.

    500. After downloading an FM, you immediately open it up in DromEd and loot it for custom objects and textures (of course you ask if you can use them before you release your mission(s)). You then restore your default Thief installation and don't touch the FM for months.

    501. You, unlike most people, feel a sense of utter despair upon playing Calendra's Legacy because you know the bar just went up forty-seven feet.

    502. You spend vast amounts of time customizing DromEd to your personal preferences, because if things are not perfect you find you cannot build anything.

    503. You get sidetracked playing with the AI when you should be building.

    504. You have four different installations of Thief, and they are all backed up on data CDs.

    505. You spend hours trying to figure out how to save time doing various tedious DromEd-y tasks.

    Who needs to do all that? - Just make a desktop shortcut and you're in with two clicks!

    506. You have a desktop shortcut for Dromed 1/2, Thief, Thief 2, Darkloader, and every editing tool you can download.

    507: You have stacks of scratch paper with seemingly random numbers all over it.. (used to track obj numbers(xxxx) and abstracts (-xxxx)

    508: You never get rid of them because you think you still need them.

    509. You use Desktop Architect's "hide desktop icons" function so none of the Thief background you spent an entire night making is obscured.

    510: The biggest file folder on your PC is where you keep all your FM's.
    511: In second place is your Thief folder which is loaded with crap you might use some day.
    512: If it wasn't for your parents/fiancè you'd starve yourself to death.
    513: Before you starve to death you try to get Garrett to eat faster while cursing at the mouse wheel (or whatever you use for inventory cycle).

    [519] You look at the moon and start wondering what values were used in Mission Parameters to cause that effect.

    525) The workers from a cable internet provider finally show up to install the cables, they bore a small hole in the wall, however at the other end, inside your room, the wall explodes making a gigantic hole, and your first thought is to select the huge, hideous Fill Air 8-faced Pyramid and perform various resizing and/or deleting actions.

    526) Your mission backup habits include a digital camera, PDA, MP3 player or another storage device not intended for general files.

    527) You finally realize that you are not more creative when drunk or stoned.

    532: When you get to work at 5 in the morning, look inside the restaurant from one of the millions of unfrobbable windows (I work at McDonald's....pity me), see all the lights off except for a very select few.....and think of how great it would be to start a mission off that way.

  20. #195
    533: When you are not amazed that we are halfway there.

    534: When you think you have a life outside of your girlfriend, but realise it's just DromEd.

    535: When you are not ashamed of that fact.

    536: And have just come from a weekend of DromEdding, all day, non-stop, just to post questions in the forum.

    537: And the only reason not to DromEd the whole weekend was on the other side of the world on a vacation in Europe. (ie. the aforementioned girlfriend).

  21. #196
    538: DromEd is actually open as you make this post, because you were still in the middle of making an FM.

    Wow, this thread is exactly one year old today. So in the spirit of DromEd, here are some more clues...

    547. You have the rest of the night to study for your exam. Realizing that nighttime always lasts forever, you conclude there's no need to study for any exam.

    548. You believe sight and sound are the only human senses.

    549. Before remodeling your house, you ask the architect if the foundation is weak, do you wail and nash your teeth?

    550. You take astronomy for extra credit, and ask the TA if the universe is entirely solid does that mean air brushes comprise all open spaces?

    551. Your doctor tells you that you must rest to regain your health. You scoff at her and say, "Rest only increase mission time. Give me a health potion or magic fruit."

    552. "Real world" to you means being in Thief (or DromEd). Everything else is virtual.

    553. Your astrology guide states: "If you fail today, go back and reload your last saved mission."

    554. When you see a shadow in the darkness you shout: "What is that?! Do my eyes show me the right?" Then after pausing briefly, you recite in almost poetic cadance, "No one walks here now. 'Twas but the wind on the torches."

    555. You don't believe in rain or snow, hot or cold. There is only perfect weather all the time.

    556. When searching for the source of an unusual noise, you examine the exact same places several times before giving up and returning to your regular patrol route.

    557. After quitting Thief for the day (yes it happens), you can't figure out why there is no longer the looped background music playing everywhere you go.

    558. In order to sleep at night, you must fire up an FM and find a suitable bedroom to hide in. You like to fall sleep next to the computer with your headphones on so that it feels like you are still in the game (I am guilty of this!)

    559. When you have any problems in life, you come to the TTLG forums to seek "mission advice."

    560. You finally have a beautiful girlfriend. But as soon as your friends commend you saying, "Well, she's definitely a keeper, you break off the relationship immediately because you no longer associate with the Keepers."

    561. Before you go to bed, you pray to the Master Builder, asking him to soon grant you victory.

    562. When DromEd crashes you use the Trickster's name in vain.

    563. Whenever you start a new project, the first thing you always say is (in Garrett speak) "Heeere we gooo."

    564. Whenever you see people drunk at a bar the first thought that flashes in your mind is Benny.

    565. You wonder how your friends can be so active if they are on vacation across country. After all, the default AI efficiency settings don't allow for it.

    566. You actually dream about Thief (or DromEd) and nothing else.

    567. You forget that there are actually other computer games besides the Thief series.

    568. When your dad asks if you'd like to play a relaxing game of blackjack with his friends from work, you say, "No, I've already blackjacked enough people for tonight."

    569. When schoolmates call you names, your response is "Art thou feared to face me man to man?"

    570. If you take pride in having a bigger hammer than anyone else on your block.
