There is an unquestionable thematic resemblance to her work in the mission!

I thought it was like a pocket-sized version of DrK's Rocksbourg series, but without the nightmarishly suffocating atmosphere; DrK-lite, if you like (and I do like; DrK's a genius and I played the Rocksbourg series to about halfway through 'Ink & Dust', but the atmosphere just got too oppressive for me and I bailed out).

Hope this comes across as the compliment it's meant as. :)

Moonbo: I purchased your novella on Amazon and last night I read through the first third of it. Great stuff! If anyone's looking for a satisfying way to extend that rich Thiefy atmosphere beyond your computer, try reading Shadowcursed. B)

My question is this: Will the novella spoil the mission or vice versa? I won't get to really dive into Requiem until Sunday evening and I'm guessing I'll finish the novella by then... but I don't want to spoil anything in the mission's story or mystery. So is it okay if I finish the novella first, or should I wait until I've played Requiem?

Sincere congratulations. I'd love to write and release a decent novella or create and release a decent Thief/TDM mission, and now you've done both. Rather than just envy you, I'll try to use your accomplishments as inspiration to stop making excuses and do what I really want to do. :blush:

Hey TafferCat,

I'm glad you're enjoying the book :-). Don't worry about one spoiling the other - they have totally different stories. Think of them as taking place in parallel universes.

There are a few references in Requiem to events in Shadowcursed, nothing too big though, but if you want to be super safe I'd recommend what you're doing and read the book first :-).

Oh, and if you liked the book after reading it all the way through, think about putting a review up on the Amazon page. Those are the best gift a writer can get.

Only really just got started but I love the optional ways of getting to places and the hints
A general question - is there any difference between the hardness levels as the initial objectives are the same

Hey OldJim,

There are no added or different objectives based on the difficulty, the only thing that changes is that the AI get tougher (which is the default in 2.0).

This is definitely among the best FMs I've ever played for TDM. I'm really not sure what else I can add, as every element of this mission melds together seamlessly to create a sublime experience. No complaints whatsoever - if you don't make any more of these it'd be a travesty.

That was really impressive. An excellent mission that wouldn't be out of place in any of the original Thief titles.

Thanks for all the hard work. Had a blast playing it :smile:

@Sakonosolo, yeah sadly it was the closest texture I could find...hopefully the green color acts as a clue most of the time.

@Oldjim, yep that's as intended.

I just finished this. I ghosted a lot of it--or anyway passed without combat, KOing, or getting chased--which was a good challenge.

'Twas a very excellent story & FM. I could definitely feel the spirits of Eshaktaar & Lady Rowena in it and I'm happy to see that tradition of FM design making its way into TDM.

Hey Demagogue,

Glad you liked it, especially since my favorite all-round TDM mission is Patently Dangerous :smile:.

I really liked this mission. Reminds me of the tower mission by Sotha in that you descend to retrieve an artifact and destroying it kills all the enemies in the level. I especially liked the part where you go around removing the skeleton's crowns. Though that was pretty funny.

Just bouncing in here to say that the very notion that this mission is anything but exemplary in the way of aesthetics is wrong. The visuals and the aural soundscape are outstanding. I wish you had used the term "aethetics" in the poll... but, either way (though I haven't voted yet, as I'm not "fini"), the mission is beautiful...

Not to mention the story and gameplay (once again, I haven't finished so I can only anticipate the continued excellence in these areas...).
