    Halloween Contest

    TTLG Fan Missions Forum presents:

    The
    HALLOWEEN
    Contest

    Create a new mission in Dromed either from scratch or using any existing Thief level as a base. Existing levels could be either an OM, an FM or an Abandoned mission.

    If you wish to use an existing mission as a base, Yandros & NV have created a file that will help delete old data from a mission file. Get it here. Check out the readme for the details, but you can essentially delete old AI, objectives, markers, keys, and books quickly to get a clean start (btw, thanks for the file guys!). More information here.

    If you use an Abandoned mission, please make sure you credit the original author. Missions can be found at The Weary Taffer.

    If you use an OM, you can get the unstripped versions of all the OMS at The Circle (link). Use these instead of the ones in your Thief directory, which are incomplete for editing purposes.

    Rules:

    1. Contest begins on 2nd July 2012.
    2. Contest ends on 30th October 2012 (to be confirmed).
    3. The mission must have a Halloween theme or at least be "scary".
    4. There is no size limit.
    5. You are allowed to use OMs.
    6. You are allowed to use FMs and abandoned FMs, given that the approval of the original author(s) has been obtained.
    7. You may work together with others or on your own.
    8. You may enter the competition under your own user name or as an anonymous entry, whichever you prefer.

    NOTE If you use an FM, you MUST get permission from the original author. This will be checked.

    You are allowed to use your own previously released FMs as a base.

    PRIZES

    There will be prizes graciously donated by darthslair and epithumia. Lucky winners will have the opportunity to jump into a pool to retrieve a prize. NB. Please ensure you can swim before attempting this feat.

    THIS POST WILL BE UPDATED WITH FURTHER INFORMATION AS IT BECOMES AVAILABLE.

    Still possible I'll come up with something, but at this point I haven't started anything aside from a few random thoughts roaming around in my head.

    Hi Brethren, how about a sequel to "Bad Hangover" ?

    That's the problem with entertainment today, it's all sequels and prequels and reboots. I think if I do anything, I'll do something new.

    Very reluctantly, I think I have to report that one anonymous will have to be removed. However, I haven't brought out any bribes, threats or torture yet so you never know.

    Uh-oh - I haven't been in the forum in a while. I've been reworking one of my own abandoned missions from 2007 - is that okay?

    Hey, I'm considering entering the contest as well, and I'll be anonymous.
    I don't know if I'll find the time to make something big, but I've had an idea for a creepy mission so it seems logical to make it for the contest.
