Yes one could probably do that with a print on demand service. If you manage to get a high resolution of the logo you can print yourself a nice shirt for advertising TDM. Good idea 😏

The mission got listed now also here on Thiefguild. While I received some ratings on my original map from 2012, I lack new reviews on the mission update there. If someone who recently played the update of this FM has a little spare time and is feeling generous then I would be very happy to see your star rating over there or even a short review. No pressure though - you're always free to leave your rating or review here in this thread - or none of this at all. Just informing you guys of the possibilities as I really like the Thiefguild website personally since it is a little easier to read reviews and mission infos there (and also the Admin is really kind). Anyways - thanks for playing my mission, I hope you had some fun (re-)visiting the inn! :)

First time I played this mission.

English not being my native language I had a hard time keeping up with the intro. I suggest a next, next, next approach whenever possible.

Medium difficulty: "Do not be seen by anyone"... okay, in the author I trust.

Spoiler

I don't understand what the secondary house is about. It is the one that I first visited and while the first floor has some interesting architecture I didn't find anything of interest there and left a little meh.

After that, very nice small and straight forward mission. Good use of AI (know the one that's one too many). Plenty of room to pass by AI which is something I appreciate (I don't particularly like narrow corridors unless used sparingly). Nice bedtime trick (here is where the mission shines, imho).

I got rid of my threat although it is not that clear why she had to go. I see potential for more plot and some twists in this mission. I didn't collect as much loot and I left at least one door locked behind but since my goals were complete and nothing implied there was anything else to do I finished the mission.

Since the mission indeed is a seek-and-destroy in-and-out operation I will revisit it for sure!

Thanks for your work and thanks for sharing!

So I did rate this mission highly because it's extremely dedicated to being a classic Thief "sneak and loot" as you can get, no crazy ghouls and spiders and monsters, no keeper magic, no puzzles, no weird fireballs or blue flames, just simple pure thievery in a small town setting with clear and simple missions, akin to taking out an enemy in a mansion of roaming guards and servants. Old school. Classic.

      Perhaps an unpopular opinion: TDM team might benefit from someone with actual QA experience; someone with naturally and professionally developed curiosity, who is interested in how and why things work, how they break At least to me it's kind of mind-boggling how untested some rather important features are (first the absence alert feature for items, now the rope +body carry behavior).

      Bumped into an interesting piece of wisdom called Hyrum's Law:
      With a sufficient number of users of an API, it does not matter what you promise in the contract: all observable behaviors of your system will be depended on by somebody.

      I love playing The Dark Mod when it's cold in my place. Bonus points when it's a bit (or even very) dark and it's raining, too.
