About this FAQ


The version of this FAQ is 0.6.


What is this?

This is a collection of frequently asked questions, matching answers and general hints for the computer games "The Dark Project: Thief", its Gold Edition and "Thief: The Metal Age". (And anything else that might be related).

What is this not?

This FAQ contains neither dromed specific questions, nor cheating stuff. The reasons are simply: I don't know anything about the dromed (of course, I have played around and have built a tutorial room with a Murus, a Guard, a Haunt, and a golden skull as objective, but that means not that I knew anything.) And I despise cheaters so much that I add of course nothing for them in my FAQ.


This is a private effort, provided as a service to the public. For now, please don't contact us on this yet. If you want to ask further questions or discuss things, please do so in the TTLG discussion forums.
Warning: I used sometimes the dark and evil thing named "sarcasm" and sometimes even the wicked thing named "irony". Be prepared for humour.
