Status of me, CoSaS, and Correspondence of Thieves - 8:15:11 PM - Dan
The Me: On October 11th I began work as a professional level designer, working on an unannounced project for ZeniMax Media/Bethesda Softworks at one of their recently acquired studios. (Care to guess which?) It's been a dream come true and the conclusion of a journey over ten years in the making. Of course, it necessarily has a big impact on my personal Thief-based worlds.
The CoSaS: The current CoSaS phase, entitled The Nine Year Sleep is proceeding under the direction of a new lead and a mostly new team. I leave it in their hands confident that their creative direction and hard work will ensure that all of the hard work I put into it will be enjoyed by everyone. The rest of the project is effectively canceled, though noone of us know what the future will hold for Thief editing and these old unfinished missions.
The COT: The online edition of the rewritten Correspondence of Thieves is complete and available for all, as long as this server is still operating. The print edition on the other hand will not be happening, and if it did, it would only exist in a very limited, undistributable form. COT2 is also canceled, as I will no longer be working on Thief fiction in any shape or form. The plot and characters planned for COT2 may eventually be used in future works, but that will be many years from now.
These are sad topics for me and not ones I was anxious to come out into the public eye and declare, but it was about time I did so. It is however within the framework of news happy enough to completely eclipse the drawbacks for me. I eagerly look forward to being able to talk about the project I am currently involved with, as it's something that makes me very excited, and something I think will excite all of you as well.

FM News Update November - 5:14:48 PM - The Phantom
Based on the latest update of TTLG's upcoming missions list.
Three authors has been removed for this update: CrackedGear, Ilmaree & MoonAchilles.
1. CrackedGear was listed with a Thief 3 FM in development, called 'Silence Part 2'. Unfortunately there hasn't been any news for over a year (since Sept 2009) and sending him a Private Message gave no response.
Therefore he has been removed as upcoming. The screens he posted are still up though.
2. The same counts for Ilmaree. He is mentioned with an untitled Thief 2 FM but the latest news about it was over 2 years ago (Apr 2008). Attempts to get in touch with him, by Pm as well as email, have been in vain.
It's unlikely this mission is still in progress and has been removed from the list.
3. MoonAchilles on the other hand is removed from the list because his Thief Gold FM, The Blue Star, has been released for the community. It's the author's first and takes place in a museum.
Download links can be found in the thread. Go check it out.
The new FM that Eternauta is working on is called 'The Last Lighthouse Keeper' for Thief 2. It's currently under beta testing, with an expected release in December.
'Fables of the Penitent Thief' by Sliptip and Digital Nightfall is currently undergoing the 3rd round of beta testing. The release of this promising adventure shouldn't take much longer now.
The Watcher continues working on his debut FM, Xavier's Library, that is expected at Christmas.
Finally, Shadowhide revealed some new pics of his upcoming FM 'When evil and angels dance'. See this thread.
The full list of changes can be read here. All links and more info can be found in the upcoming missions list, as usual.
Thanks for reading and happy taffing.
