It crawls upon human minds why some are bound up in grave sins.
For what does it profit a man if he remains devoted to the nether creatures?
Surely such deeds shall earn no portion from the Lord Builder.
Such a man has destroyed his high place in Heaven.
--Bishop Deifer, Letters to the Builder Clerics

This is a small experimental gameplay FM, exploring a few shock/creep/horror capabilities of TDM.
It was designed to be played but one time: so give yourself some time to explore a relatively small space.

I'll add a wiki entry. (Done)

This was cool, having the thief talk to himself like Garrett. You need some good corny one-liners.
I liked what you accomplished in a small area. It was very easy climbing around buildings with narrow ledges.
Great mood music and sounds. It really added a lot to the atmosphere and gameplay.

I was about 700 short in loot, so I will have to go back and look for more.

Nice mission, really! :D

Great atmosphere, really creepy, I enjoyed a lot.

And I think this is the BEST packaged and presented mission for TDM: great mission presentation (old style, intense!), video audio and video. Also the loader, cute!
A quality model for future mission packaging.

Spoiler
, was really cool. Thanks for this devotion, and these emotions, you really rock! :-D

Five stars across the board from me - definitely the best "small" mission I've played on TDM.

The aesthetic was spot on - could have done five stars in the seasonal contest as well with the leaves.

You've got to tell me - for a simple opening "quote" intro, how did you make it and add it to the level? I would love to see some more like this - maybe seeing that kind of intro for more FMs would win over some doubters who say that TDM "just isn't Thief."
"No proposition Euclid wrote,
No formulae the text-books know,
Will turn the bullet from your coat,
Or ward the tulwar's
downward blow
Strike hard who cares—shoot straight who can—
The odds are on the cheaper man.
"

A very nice mission in such a small place. Graphically, it is top-notch, notable especially for the lighting and small effects. Those are really nicely done and give the mission a surreal charm. It would have done well in the season contest since it conveyed the feel of Autumn very well. And the plot is really Halloweenish, somewhere between child's tale and horror. It made me think of Saturnine's Rose Cottage (although it is obviously much, much smaller).

This contest continues to impress me - so many good missions under only one month! :ph34r:

Come the time of peril, did the ground gape, and did the dead rest unquiet 'gainst us. Our bands of iron and hammers of stone prevailed not, and some did doubt the Builder's plan. But the seals held strong, and the few did triumph, and the doubters were lain into the foundations of the new sanctum. -- Collected letters of the Smith-in-Exile, Civitas Approved

Hmmm... I made a huge mistake - is it possible to withdraw my vote? I voted 3 stars for "Aesthetics" but I was thinking on the architecture only, which I thought was a bit simple at times, but now that I actually made the effort to READ the rest of the description, I see now that it also includes lights, sounds and mood, what makes my vote pretty damn stupid... How can I change that? I DO want to change that, not just express it here, as it simply doesnt do the mission justice (I'll also blame my mistake on the bright font :) ).

You should have a "Delete my vote" option... no?

I have to agree with Melan.

The lighting effects in this mission are outstanding. The faked AO is also quite nice.

I hadn't inspected closely but I suspect that Mortem added some of his detail textures shaders (thus the size of the mission)?

Now I admit to my problem:

Unfortunately, no detail textures. Filesize is mostly due to the the roq video, sounds, and leaf textures ~ 53 MB uncompressed (!).

Actually, all I can see is: "You have already voted in this poll"... Looked everywhere, a word search doesnt show anything. Maybe the new layout changed it?
