    "Damsel in Distress" by Dyald Oct. 5/04

    Dyald's previously unheard of mission (maybe you did hear, I dunno): "Damsel in Distress" is nearing the final stages of release preparation. His mission just might be released within the next several days, perhaps this week! I've beta-tested and completed it and must that it will definetly be worth the download when released . The mission combines elements of horror, adventure, a touch of mystery, plenty of drama, an itty smudge of romance (but not much, 'cause you don't care about that, right?), and loads of action. What I think you get is quite a deus ex machina (not the game), with the mission hinting slightly of the Mechanist pushing into the future with the possibility of being led by yet another madman. Here's my take on the situation; Distress delivers:

    -A tightly packed, nicely organized, coherent plot
    -A bunch of custom textures
    -Several new skins
    -A new villian
    -Garrett's sweetheart? (you'll have to see for yourself)
    -Great architecture, especially for an author's first mission
    -Decent voice acting (I think )
    -Gratuitous violence (everybody's more interested in a mission with it )
    -First mission in a possible series
    -Flowing landscape and story; not slow, not too fast; not too simple or complex
    -New paintings (people always like those!); I mention this because I like this missions paintings
    -A gripping ending
    -Finally GUARANTEED to be released before Thief 2 Expansion: Shadows of the Metal Age and the Second Mission of the Circle of Stone and Shadow! (I just HAD say that! HA HA HA HA! )

    So, if you have any questions, post them here (PLEASE!), I hope to see replies (and more than my flop "So Long, Hammers" thread, which I started without noticing Old Burrick had already created one).

    Alrighty, onto the show!

    Wow! I didn't expect this kind of review. Thanks M D .
    Hopefully, you will be able to download it tomorrow or the next day as it is in the final stages of testing. The minute the final version (final is relative of course) is ready it will be posted.

    Here we go again. Yet another evening in front of the computer doing what I like to do most, play THIEF!!

    Thanks.
    It's so easy, but I can't do it.
    So risky - but I gotta chance it.
    It's so funny, there's nothing to laugh about

    Cool. I congratulate Dyald on managing to endure the task of staring at the Dromed window long enough to create a fan mission, especially after my attempts at starting an FM yesterday.

    If you abhor spoilers, these are not for you.

    For treasure hunters:
    spoiler:
    *check the fountain at the entrance to town. This is the 2nd time I've played and I've found at least 50 loot; lots of little coins to find (are you listening, Lady Jo? )

    DEADLY SPOILERS:
    spoiler:
    *If you're look for the the nobleman said his maid stole and you're having trouble finding it (like I did), it never left the house. Think about Gervaisius's manor (This is a BIG hint).
    -Flip aside Karras' painting in chapel to reveal secret switch
    -Look near some bottles by a sleeping pagan beside the front door of the baron's gate
