    I've only played The Turning of the Leaves out of his missions. I'm interested in:
    1. Which part of that map he started making first and last, and how that mission evolved throughout the process. In other words, were all the areas in the mission in his head before starting it or did they spawn as a part of the creation process?
    3. Did he run out of time or room towards the end of the contest period?
    4. If he had more than 1 million units to work with, what else would he have implemented/expanded in the mission?

    Edit: Just realized I have also played Vampire Skull.

I guess I have two questions, in mission so far was there anything planned for immersion that didn't come to pass? Are those roadblocks still around? Is there a dream setting for a FM that he may or may not do in the future?

    Then, of course, he could be asked about how he came to playing Thief and then making missions for it, and maybe whether he rather prefers playing or making missions. How did the idea of "Malazar's inscrutable tower" come to mind, and how did the first idea change while the mission was being constructed/developed?
    damn...the pages switched..almost overlooked your question but luckily..they are noted.Thank you guys!

    Here's a couple of general questions:
    1. I'd like to know which one/ones of his FMs he regards to be his best?
    2. Which one/ones of his FMs was the most fun to build and which one was the most painful?

    NEW EPISODE - MALAZAR'S INSCRUTABLE TOWER f. NICKED

    You guys like creativity, interesting architecture and unique gameplay? Then NICKED is your man and was our guest this time. We mainly talked about his outstanding puzzle mission “Malazar’s Inscrutable Tower” – the inspirations, techniques and gameplay tweaks he added and also his work in general considering “Sturmdrang Peak”, “The Falling of the Leaves” or “The Violent End of Duncan Malveine”. It was a pleasure. We’re sorry that the audio/connection quality isn’t as great as we want it to be..but in lockdown times the internet seems to be a bit stressed out. Hope you can still enjoy it.

    Haha, if I had known going into the recording that it was going to be uploaded after the voting ended, I would had just revealed to you guys (and listeners) that I was the author of Recipe for Turmoil, instead of pretending to give it a review based on notes from a friend of mine who played it ! I know Brethren was having a good laugh while I was talking about it.

    Oh well, I still think the discussion of it was valid and the episode was really enjoyable.

    Thanks a lot for the new episode!

    I honestly enjoyed your discussion of my mission since you couldn't have been more on the money with your guesses.
    I started working on this mission just 1 month before the deadline and couldn't get much done due to this stupid lockdown.
    Like most people, I had to shift my working hours to the evening since I had to entertain the toddlers during the day and that didn't leave that much free time...

    However, I was most pleased to hear that I've succeeded in achieving my main goal when building a mission: creating something that stays true to the OMs and is still fun to play.

    thanks for your honest reply, and as we said, it was really fun to play. Sometimes you can achieve more with less. I think I remember more sections in my head from your mission than from some of the contenders. I'm always very impressed how you guys get job, family done and also find time to create such gems. Thank you for your contribution to contest and I'm also glad that we treated your entry fair and could see the core of it. Your circumstances make it even more enjoyable

    I was interested in the discussion about the rating system for the competition and can see both sides of the argument. Do I want to look at a mission objectively or do I want to mark it by how much fun I had? Personally after rating the entries by their categories I was unhappy with their order by total score so I re-scored all of them by new totals and retrospectively split the totals back into component parts.

    It was a battle between scoring analytically against overall enjoyment (which wasn’t reflected by the analytical approach). It sort-of reminded me of an old joke my Father used to make about an over-scientific approach being detrimental (the joke was in a medical setting). “The operation was a success, but the patient died.” This became abbreviated after any unfortunate outcome to the comforting “Well the operation was a success.”

    My hearing isn’t so good these days so I often have the YouTube subtitles on and it readsMoses sadly is going on a journey”. HaHa! I guess it means Psych0sis. Anyway if I understand correctly, while he’s away to get milk, how about considering a female player/FM author as a Podcast partner? If it’s a long term vacancy perhaps you may care to consider a different guest reviewer for each of the next 5 podcasts?

    I haven’t heard all the podcasts but enjoyed the ones I have. Thank you.

    Ah! Did I mis-hear? Mis-read? Replaying that bit I guess I misunderstood. I have no excuses. I was working out who Moses in the subtitles was. I can't even say “Well the operation was a success.”

    Hey, thank you for you interesting comment. I totally agree and think that what you say about the pros and cons about the rating system totally nails it...and the "dadjoke" actually is a great metaphor for that.

    And to make clear what I meant with Psych0sis going on a journey, it was a joke. He had a different opinion than me so I just joked that "sadly he can't be with us anymore " - little moses

    Besides Pukey Brunster (we talked with her about her awesome first mission "Morbid Curiosity") all the potential female guests denied our request and even Pukey needed some convincing. I don't know if women maybe are not so interested being in the spotlight or my invitations are not inviting enough but that's what it is. So even if Psych0sis would go on a journey (he would be back very soon, the speedrunner that he is) it would be even harder to find a consistent female podcast partner I suppose. I'd love to have more women (especially authors) on the podcast because I think its very interesting if there's a difference in the way they create missions and how and by whom they get inspired. Hope this answers your question, but if anybody would have an idea who would want to join...but I think I already asked all the female authors that created influencial/interesting enough missions to talk about :/

    Having different people on of course is great, BRETHREN was a great additon this time or skacky and Dominus on the Daniel Thron episode...but I have to admit, after a series of many guests, I really enjoy the coziness of just talking to Nex and Psych0sis now and then before we cover some interesting guests again. Home Sweet Home

    Many thanks for your reply Supremcee.
    Yes I heard the podcast with Pukey and thought it was very good. I remember her saying she was passionate about bringing mood and ambience to missions and wondered how she and Tannar split their responsibilities on The Scarlet Cascabel. Similarly with other successful partnerships, but before I say anymore and make a bigger fool of myself I need to listen to all podcasts. The three of you are doing an excellent job and I’m glad nobody is going on a journey (certainly not Moses). Tomorrow I’m going on a journey to the pharmacy to buy something to wash out my ears.

    Thank you for your kind words and I appreciate it that you go through our taffing long episodes even with your limited hearing...that is quite some effort. Hope to keep you entertained in the future
