Yup I finally got around to this one and what a mission it was! :) Albeit a might taxing on your memory to remember where you've been and where to go next, LOL Thank goodness I tackled this one before senility set in! :D However, it was a good mission to play and even though I had to fight this computer (as usual with this game) I managed to get it done~the layout was really something..all the nooks and crannies to find and talk about mazes...I think I'm still dizzy! :D I know he did another one and will try to get it soon (if I can stand babying this puter along to play the darn things). I don't know why but Thief G. has always had a hard time playing for some reason..and I'll be so glad when I get my regular system back so I can get back to T2/FM's :) Ta and Good Hunting!

Glad to see you posting and playing Thief again, Huntress. So, where is every one else?
Smith claps hands and hears multiple echos. Hmm.... Ain't nobody here but us chickens.
Lorgan's Web is a good one. After that, if you have not already done so, I suggest that you play Lord Fishkill's Curse, the latest one by the same author, Shadowspawn.

That's right she's one of the originals. What about Buglesoft? I haven't seen him yet.:)

Thanks Peter...although I have been posting a small bit here and there I'm still around checking things out :) Yes, the Curse was the one I mentioned above that I knew he had made another one but had to wait for my other puter to be returned as it has T2 on it. I just got a call yesterday from my Tech and Abit had finally returned the board but...it apparently didn't get fixed or something. Seems they packed it lousy..no proper protection or anything, loose in the box with just a small paper with the RMA number on it. No discription of what they did or had to fix :( So he (Rich) called them and after talking to a few people got to the higher ups and let them know what a lousy job etc. He was given another RMA and will return my board but they will send another one. Whether it's new or refurbished I don't know but they will put a 6mos. warrenty on it. Damn...another wait!!! I'm really disappointed with Abit as I always thought they were a number one type company. At least they will make it right so I guess that's something.
In the meantime I'm occupying myself with other games I have as I'm not really happy to try much with TG unfortuately...just don't like the hassle :( but am glad I did go ahead with "Lorgan's" as it was worth playing :) Ta and Good Hunting!

I was disappointed with Abit motherboards so I switched to Asus and my puter problems vanished in the air. Try Asus, you might like it.;)

Well netwave92, it's not really the board I was disappointed in as I am with the company. I've had to send various componets back for repair or replacement and this was the first time I had such an unfortunate result. Abit boards are usually very well recommended and perhaps I just got a bit unlucky with the one I got...but it is the company that was not up to the higher standards I was expecting. Perhaps next time I might try an Asus? Ta and Good Hunting!

Oh I see... I just did Lorgan's Web. You're absolutely right Huntress, you have to remember everything where you've been and know where you're going. Quite dizzy a little bit but not too bad. Got more than enough loot. It's just so hard to go around carrying Cudget and then meet the roaming guards before you know it. It's a good mission though. I would definitely recommend.:cool:
09-16-2003, 01:29 AM
Well fortunately for me and the way I play, I had taken care of all the Guards on the way to finding Cudget so that when I found out I had to take him home it was no problem except for me to remember the way :D Then also later when I got the additional objective to take "Spider" to his final resting place...I already had found out where that place was and who he was (accidently) cause I found him early on and had BJ'd them and when I picked him up to hide him better, saw his name. However, I didn't know at the time what that was all about and so again had to do the backtracking from where I was to where he was and then to the "Spider hole" LOL I did a lot of traveling around that was probably more than someone else might have done it just cause I wanted/needed to do some things first before I attempted to do certain other ones (like deal with the Fire Balls and get the jewels). I wasn't sure how I was going to be able to do it, cause the first time I attempted and got over by the one near the ladder...all of a sudden I got hit and didn't know what had happened and died. So I left it and then much later went back there to try and figure out what had happened and how to deal with it....ha ha. Same thing with the four guards protecting the vault. Got into that overhead and debated if I needed to do anything about them cause I wasn't sure what was there for me to worry about. Finally I got down and BJ'd them all and sadly found out I needed a key for one of the locks. So there again, I had to leave an area only to have to find my way back again, etc. ;) So that's why I remarked about all the nooks and crannies there were to find and travel in or on and then find your way back again. But glad you played it also and found it to be a good mission :) Ta and Good Hunting!

Well, I had taken care most of the guards and some of them were already injured (in our sword fighting before) and that really helps I guess when you take care of these obstacles first. I just go from room to room or apartment to bar, kitchen and take what I can take, BJ or sword what I can and so when objective changed, it helped me a lot to recall where I came from and what I did. I just keep looking at the map and was able to figure where I was coming from and going to do next. Plus I just followed what Blackie told me before " if you haven't been there, go there and you never know what you might find". :D The fire elementals, they also hit me and didn't exactly know what happened but just kept grabbing those gemstones. :) Glad to have some water arrows. The mission is like patterned to RTC where you need to do a lot of things before it ends. Like taking orders from Brother Murus. Yeah, it's a good mission. I hope I find a lot this kind with the other FMs. Goodluck and have fun always!;)

OK netwave92 as far as really good FM's, there are many many to be played. I would recommend Christine's campaign(s) as a very good series for someone to get started in (apparently you haven't played too many Thief games overall). She originally made them as individual downloads but later put them into one package. I believe it turned out to be about 35mgs. Not all that bad for 8 missions! Then it will take you through them in the proper order as when I started playing her missions, I had no idea they were a series so I played the first two out of order...they do have a story and so the order of play was important. It didn't hurt that much but later it could if you didn't know better...the titiles were all in German and so you had to check the readme to make sure which one you were playing :D Anyway, there are many others to explore...but hers' are good without being too difficult (however she does offer difficulty modes of play to suit your pleasure). Komag has this campaign on his site for downloading. Ta and Good Hunting!
