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.
