The Dark Mod reviewed by SneakyJack - 1:29:24 AM - Dan
Regular FM reviewer SneakyJack has turned his attention to the recently released Dark Mod, a Thief-inspired total conversion for Doom 3. Access the full review here, or just stay for the preview!
Though The Dark Mod is very strong and solid the very moment that I'm typing this to be posted - the potential I feel it has after the hours I've spent playing it and the handful of missions I've seen is simply staggering.

Eclipsed by HipBreaker Released - 2:30:37 AM - pavlovscat
October 30, 2009 - Eclipsed, a mission for T2 by HipBreaker
I appreciate HipBreaker's use of colored lighting which gives the run-down city more visual interest. Also, the tattered look of the city contrasted with the bright, shiny loot items to give the city more of a feeling of urgent abandonment. Though confrontation is delayed, I never found myself bored with the city area due to the many readables which enhanced the story and added objectives. Also, the puzzles were varied with some easier than others, but none too difficult. Overall, this is a mission I enjoyed very much.

FM News Update Nov 2009 - 9:35:19 PM - The Phantom
The latest Circle's FM News, based on the latest update from the upcoming missions list.
No new authors this time, but two long-awaited missions that made a (halloween) release.
The first FM is from a dromEder who made his return to the scene after years of absence. He brought us 'The 7th Crystal' and now after eight years he's back with another mission called 'Rose Cottage'. A lot of talented people have worked on it and it shows. A stunning piece of work that nobody wants to miss. Grab it now from this thread.
The second mission is 'Eclipsed' by HipBreaker, another long-time dromEder who hasn't released a mission in years. But those who've played the author's earlier work and watched the pics and trailer earlier, know that it's something special. Links are in this thread.
A mission that won't see the light of day is Ravenhook's 'Whitechapel'. The 7-mission campaign set in 1888 London suffered some technical problems and was abandoned as a result. The info has been removed from the list. On a positive note, the author seems to be working on a new T2 mission (The Light of Day).
Masterthief3, with the upcoming FMs Shadows of Eidolon 2 and Stormrunner, has been removed as upcoming because of a news silence of more then a year. It's uncertain if his missions are stalled or still in progress. Let's hope Metras' story will continue and that we hear something again at a later time.
Bassmanret's continuation to Just Friends (Part 2) is as good as finished and is set for release in November, probably Thanksgiving. That means a few weeks left to play the entertaining first part and learn about Burt, the main character. It can be grabbed here.
Short news topics:
More links and news are in the upcoming mission list as usual.
Happy taffing and until next update.

Happy Halloween!! - 6:16:10 PM - pavlovscat
Happy Halloween for Thief Fans
After a lengthy hiatus due to real life concerns, pav is back. Autumn is a wonderful time for playing Thief, and Halloween inspires many FM authors to create something spooky. This year, Halloween felt like Christmas with 4 brand new missions. This bounty of missions was exactly the impetus I needed to get back into play. Keep an eye out for my return to writing new mission reviews as well!
