The Beleaguered Fence is a small/medium sized map in which aspiring thief Thomas Porter sets out to bust his fence out of the notorious Old Town Jail. Mission was created by me, Sotha and I wish to thank Melan, Baal and Bikerdude for playtesting.

During the recent heist at captain Knighton's manor (See mission The Knighton Manor) I made a stupid mistake. The alarm was sounded, and I made it out just before the guards caught me. I ran through the mazelike streets of The City and thought that I had escaped my pursuers.

I finally hid in the shop of my fence, Lark Butternose - the only man in the City I can really trust. Things calmed down and the next day I went out to spend some of the spoils of my hard work while Lark kept the shop open to sell other items I found. Later, when I returned to Lark's place, it was ransacked. My equipment, our loot and Lark were all gone.

I talked with the locals and learned that the city watch had raided the place just a few hours ago, confiscated everything, arrested Lark and dragged him to the notorious Old Town Jail. It turned out captain Knighton, the one whose manor I robbed, took the thing very personally and swore to apprehend and execute everyone involved in the heist.

And now they have Lark. They will probably interrogate him and learn about me. I have enough problems already and I do not need a powerful revenge-seeking watch captain at my heels.

I think now is the time for me and Lark to go our separate ways. Our agreement was quite profitable for both of us but now it needs to end. But only after I bust Lark out of the Old Town Jail. I owe him that much. And more importantly, it would be better if captain Knighton never learned who really stole his valuables.


For story oriented players, be sure to check your inventory for Thomas' journal for more background.

Nice, I've been waiting on this one, thought it would be longer. Good to have a distraction from my vert contest entry so I dont totally burn out.

Still ghosting - very good so far. Full of busy life and shadows just enough to hide in and look natural. Had to take chances here and there and scurry though fingers crossed, heart in mouth.

Great mission, I really enjoeyd it :). Would be great to make a prequel to this mission, that could be ending with a player's chase across the City to Lark Butternose's hideout B)

I am really pleased that so many have enjoyed the mission!

I've actually been thinking of making a prequel, the heist at the captain Knighton's manor. So maybe later if I have the time....
