In the North is a mansion heist that takes place outside the town of Braedon, north of Bridgeport. William Steele is an adventurer from Bridgeport who has been away several years, working as a soldier/guard for one Lord Bascombe at his castle in Braedon. Lord Harckoff, a nasty fellow who lives in a renovated Builder church nearby, sees Bascombe as a threat to his shady business, and has put a price on Bascombe's head. Steele decides to visit Harckoff one night to see what he can do to prevent Bascombe's death.
The William Steele Missions
In the North is the first of several Steele missions. Altogether they'll tell a story of corruption, greed, and revenge. At some point, I'll start packaging them as a campaign, in addition to the single missions.
This Mission can be obtained using the in-game loader. Look for WS1: In the North.

About one year.
Thanks to the TDM team for creating a terrific platform for storytelling and stealth gaming.
Thanks to Bikerdude, Springheel, and AluminumHaste for beta testing, especially at a time when we were all busy dealing with the final phase of TDM 1.08.
The Translators (Smallman, Overmann, and Sengu) are hard at work on translations for various languages, so thanks go out to them as well. Localized versions will be available after they're completed and tested.
And thanks to YOU for playing!
This is a large non-linear mission. To ease the burden on slower systems, consider shutting doors behind you as you go.
If you experience low frame rates, please consult the Performance Tweaks page on the Wiki.
For very low end PCs I recommend the following settings:
- V-sync is off
- AA is off
- Aniso is 4x or lower
- Advanced settings are simple/default
- Post processing is disabled
Anyone having performance issues with TDM missions can put the following cvars into their Darkmod.cfg file. This will improve the framerate and stutter/chop when in-game, but may increase loading times a little.
image_usePrecompressedTextures "1" image_useNormalCompression "2" image_useAllFormats "1" image_useCompression "1" image_preload "1"
This mission requires TDM 1.08 or later.
Repeat after me: "Read and explore, Read and explore".
Most Importantly, Enjoy!
