Thief Anniversary Contest!
What Contest? - The Thief Anniversary Contest was for Thief 2 FMs, made using Dromed. The build time was from September 23, 2008 through November 30, 2008, about two months. The most important thing about this contest was just basic good Thiefy gameplay. Contest entries had to focus on what made us fall in love with Thief in the first place, good classic Thief sneaking, pillaging, exploring, and escaping!
There were 13 missions entered and the rules restricted the building area to a Dromed 64 cube (262,144 cubic Dromed units), just like Contest 1!.
Voting was finished Dec 31, 2008.
Prizes - An up-to-date full complete set of Komag DVDs goes out to Lady Rowena for "The Tower"! Also, a Komag DVD of choice goes out to Random_Taffer for "Ashes and Dust" and Ottoj55 for "A Weekend Getaway"! The rest of you get the intrinsic reward of that warm fuzzy feeling of releasing an FM :-)
Keep in mind that ALL these missions were enjoyable and good creations. Congratulations to ALL the authors! Every mission here was fun to play and worth having, even "The Homeless Dude" was loved by many! No one should feel bad at all, because anyone who's released a mission has accomplished something tremendous that only few can boast of!
