    bbb left an indelible mark on this community, both via his friendly presence as well as the wonderful missions he gave us. Even as someone who is often mostly a lurker here, I am still incredibly saddened by this. Thank you for everything, bbb.

    RIP

    His missions always managed to capture the feel of the original Thief missions and could even be mistaken for such - always simple yet effective architecture and a variety of themes made the missions a blast to play.

    He will be truly missed.

    So very sad to hear of Bryan's passing and sincere condolences to his family. His missions were and will continue to be very enjoyable to play. Rest in peace, taffer.

    It's amazing how this gaming community has been around so long that some of us were considerably younger when it originally came out. I was 34 back then and so eager to get my hands on a truly unique and immersive game and Thief certainly met those criteria.

    Long live the legacy of those who have passed on and I hope this community stays around long enough I can get my grandchildren interested in it too.

    Sad news to say the least. So many mission authors have helped to make this community last so long and be so fun, he was certainly one of them. He will be missed by all.

    I'm so very sad to read this news. bbb was a treasured member and I loved his amazing missions. But I will remember him best for the times he dropped in and diffused tricky situations with his unfailing kindness. My condolences to his family.

    This is sad news. R.I.P. bbb.

    I've started replaying his missions starting with Lord Matt and his humor shows right away in the mission.

    Hello all,

    This is bbb's son, Matt; long-time Thief enthusiast, but an even bigger SS2 fanatic.

    I wanted to thank you all for the condolences and wishes about my father. He held people in this community in the highest regard, and Thief was a major part of our gaming-oriented discussions. Alongside many of you, I played my father's missions (typically before release), and you can certainly see that he absorbed many of the qualities that Looking Glass Studios envisioned for the series and continued them through is missions. He always was a fan of hiding loot in the "nooks and crannies" and secrets that furthered the plot, beyond just the standard mission goals.

    As many of you have stated, I will be spending the next few weeks replaying my father's missions and remembering the blood, sweat, and tears he poured into them for the enjoyment of, literally, thousands of people to download and enjoy.

    Thank you all, again; your well-wishes and thoughts are a reminder of my father's touch on this community, and my family and I are grateful to see the response.

    Matt, appreciate your kind response. This is an amazing community built around our common affinity for a fantastic video game universe and I appreciate it more all the time. I didn't realize your dad was a CFO until I read his obit. So cool how many walks of life cross paths in this forum because of a shared interest. At this time of Thanksgiving in the USA, I give thanks for all of you!

    i just got done replaying bbb missions and they are so amazing,he was in my top 3 fan mission authors for life

    i was wondering to his son did he have any unfinished mission for thief? if so i am sure a lot of talented fan mission authors would love to take a look

    last i remember he said he was going to either do a new dark mission or a dark mod mission

    also i hope to see a lot more in game area's/etc for bbb loved the one in lon more,but i think since i hold bbb in my top 3 i want to see something epic,like a easter egg room with some of his well know items in missions=healing fruit forsure :P

    Oh no, this is very sad! I had the privilege of going out to lunch with him when I first moved to Massachusetts back in around 2003/2004. We unfortunately didn't keep in touch, but he was a super nice cool guy. I remember him telling me about the stuff his two boys had been working on in Dromed, silly funny levels that never got published, just kids trying to be like their dad.

    I'm very sorry to hear of his passing, and I guess one bit of good that comes from it is a reminder to me to try harder to keep in touch with old friends while I can.

    Komag, it has been a very long time since we last saw each other. The last time, if I recall correctly, was at your house for a party of sorts of local FM authors/enthusiasts, which was likely around 2003/2004, like you said. I actually had recently brought up to my father about how you got me to try raw salmon for the first time, and I remember hating it (ironic, given I am now an avid sushi eater). While this is certainly an upsetting way to reconnect, I hope you and your family are doing well, and all are happy and healthy.

    I have not yet gone through his computers to see. To the best of my knowledge, he may have had a mission in the works, but after retiring before the pandemic, my father re-embraced his love for music and musical studies, so I'm not sure if much time was devoted to mission building. If anything should arise that I feel comfortable publishing on his behalf, I will do so, accordingly.
