    I spotted it the moment I saw the nobles sleeping in their bed with BIG BOOTS next to it.

    Well obviously El Tafferino is not me then, because if I made the mission, you'd be able to pick up the Lady's shoes and sniff them for health regen.

    Some great one liners in that LP.

    "Well he sounds like a pompous, stuck up doodolidoo, so... you know, not that it matters cause I'd be robbing him anyway"

    "Have a hug"

    I'd love to see a LP like this for Rogue Spear though. Virgin tears of blood.

    I was like 7 years old when I first played Thief: The Dark Project and I didn't even know what a stealth game was or how they worked. It was the first game I got along with my computer (gift from my father). I used to go through the levels in normal difficulty slashing my way through with the sword and ocassionally the fire arrows. It took me almost a year to complete the game because I didn't understand English at all and you can tell the hard time I had guessing what The Eye told me in the Haunted Cathedral level to do. Undercover was hard too because I didn't have a clue on how to open the cell with the talismans. And then oh boy, BruderMurus Brother Murus happened. Luckily the final levels were not as tough. I replayed TDP years later on expert difficulty with a better understanding on the stealth mechanics and it was like playing a new game entirely.

    Nice story. I, myself, honestly didn't even know how to play TDP on my first run (on normal!). So a few months later, I came back to it and actually enjoyed it (with the exception of the Bonehoard). Plus, I was really stupid back when I first played it.

    Damn you kids. When I got my first computer, I had access to two games:

    And some kind of graphical simulation that would draw you a Mandelbrot set very slowly (think "over a few hours").

    I got my friend excited for Thief few years ago - he was a typical graphicswhore, but was excited from my gameplay stories. I told him to go with Thief 2 and ghost it. He called me to go fuck myself after 4 hours of first mission.

    The first mission? You must be joking. That was easy. Even I was able to complete it. :P

    Yeah but ghosting as a first timer.

    Yeah ghosting is not easy as a first timer. It's even harder if you don't know the 'stay crouched in complete darkness for free invisibility' trick and the AI awareness mechanics.

    Thief is pretty damn hard for beginners without ghosting or even going for Expert difficulty. It is just that some of us (well, not you young'uns) have had more than eighteen years of practice to git gud.

    I'm doing my first playthrough on Expert, and it's doable once you get the hang of navigation.

    Playing Snobs: Part One right now, and holy shit... this is an obvious amateur mission (was the author's first FM) and does a lot of things wrong, but it also shows huge amounts of creativity and is a lot of fun to go through just to see what crazy stuff the author put in.

    - there's a tiny guard doll in a child's bed, which is pretty cute
    - the child herself is outside and holding a balloon; it is a very glitchy balloon
    - the bar is filled with patrons doing nice little custom animations, very cool. There's even a violinist there!
    - you get rope arrows that allow you to get to places that weren't meant to be accessible; fun times
    - Garret has a house in a village. Also a fiancee. Who was kidnapped and now Garrett has to bring a precious necklace to the kidnapper. I really don't know why Garrett goes along with it because usually, he'd just free his fiancee and steal all of the kidnapper's valuables in the process. Here you actually have to bring along the valuable necklace, heh
    - There are many cool custom items in there. Some of them look silly, but that fits the mission's style
    - The values of the loot are beyond ridiculous. You have to steal 15k in total. You start by taking 4k of your own money from your stash, but I soon had 14k without knowing where I picked it up. When I opened a chest in the upstairs rooms of the bar (there was a fat noble in it and a readable that implied he had a valuable item with him, likely hidden in the chest) my loot value went up from 14k to over 20k. Yeah. You can get thousands of loots from single chests. This is beyond ridiculous!
    - this is a readable on somebody's nightstand:
    [​IMG]
    - In the bathroom next to that bedroom, there's a naked woman in the bathtub. The water is the funniest about it. One straight diagonal water-spray effect going right into her face.

    So yeah. If you want some whimsical, utterly silly fun, play Snobs.

    Update: finished Snobs 1, now playing Snobs 2.

    It has hot dogs as loot items.
    Not food.
    Loot.

    10/10

    EDIT:
    Okay, no. It actually SUBSTRACTS money from your total loot amount because it makes you pay for the hot dogs. :lol:

    Probably the worst nude model in Thief FMs:

    Beware! For some of these items you actually have to pay the price listed here! (like the hot dogs)

    "The New Sheriff"

    It's short, it's silly, it allows you to shoot floating cats in the butt.

    "Due to his bowel movement problem, Mr Oh Dear constantly has a feces hanging down under his butt."

    I'd never thought I'd say this, but A Servant's Life is so far beyond the line of good taste even I think it's too much.
