    Thief Chess

    You've seen classic chess pieces, D&D chess pieces, the Hobbit chess pieces, space age chess pieces, and probably even Star Wars chess pieces.... Well, now it's time for:

    THIEF CHESS

    <a href="http://members.xoom.com/geckobeach/pcgames/thief/chess">Check out a few screen pics</a> of the "demo" mission. (It'll be a demo thing, not a real level.)

    kfgecko,

    I went to look at the pics but I get an error. It can't find "index.html".

    Just thought you'd want to know.

    Try it again... the server (either yours or Xoom) may have temporarily been down. I checked it on a PC, and on a Unix station already; the link works. But thanks anyways.

    So how in hell are you supposed to play it though?

    Well actually I discovered (I think, if not anyone did it before me ) this idea half a year ago. The reason why I didn't do it was because I couldn't get it to work. So I wish you good luck.

    Mr Mojo, yeah, you did have the first published evidence of Thief chess. Kudos to you.

    Anyways, I'm gonna post ThiefChess up to TDP as a demo. And if my first post wasn't clear (I said it was a DEMO not a mission), then I'll make it clear: it's not a mission. And you won't be able to actually play chess. It's just to see the characters moving in that fashion.


    Actually, I already did several moves (see the full board screen shot). The guard/apebeast "pawns", the priestess/bugbeast "queens", and the Haunt/Hammer "knights" move in position in their legal moves in succession (like a real chess game). Then the priestess (yeah, a priestess, she shoots magic hammers like a Hammer priest but looks and sounds like a woman) kills a piece. It all looks a lot like BattleChess from back in the day.

    That's just the effect I was going for. And that's all the effort I'm gonna put it.
