Phantom (the author of this post) shall be furthermore making news entries concerning FM news in brief. These posts are taken in excerpt from the continuing thread located within the FM Forum. The following includes the past two previous entries. As usual, a hearty thanks to all FM authors for keeping the community alive.
Quirk (a.k.a. spoonman) has announced the new mission he's working on. It's still untitled but already 20% in progress. He also gave us an estimated release date: end of march 2007.
DarthsLair has released his latest Thief 1 mission (Gold in Fort Knocks) recently, so his details have been removed from the list. You can download the mission from Thiefmissions.com, as usual.
Dario, who's Faceless screenshots amazed us a few year's ago, has dropped the other mission he works on: 'Legend of', that was part of his Faceless campaign. Work on Facless has stopped and it won't be finished unless someone with dromed experience can assist him. Details can be found in the thread.
Other news is that Lady Rowena and Troutpack have revealed some screenshots of their upcoming missions. Lady Rowena posted several city screens from 'The Seven Sisters', and Troutpack a screen from his still untitled highschool mission. There is also a link to a thread were kfort posted some screens of her mission 'Wicked Relics', now more then 3 years ago. If this mission will ever make it to release is questionable, there hasn't been any news from her for a long time.
Further azrarhn has reported that work on her upcoming missions have came to a complete halt, and it's unlikely that they will ever be released. Except for 'Order of the Dragons part 1' perhaps, which is already 95% complete. Let's hope that at least this mission will make it to the community.
Jesps gave us a possible release date for the Thief 2 mission he works on. Expect it around spring next year. To view what it looks like so far, check out his screenshots thread which was updated recently.
Two members are added to the list. Firstly there is kamyk, who started his first mission in 2005. It's unknown if it will ever be released, there hasn't been any news for more then a year.
The second member is Vlad Midnight, previously known as Math You. He has been working for years on two large fanmissions, one for Thief Gold and the other for Thief 2.
And (a.k.a. Ben Hur) has released the second part in his Sisterhood of Azura series, so he can no longer be found in te list. The_Dude also released a new mission, called The Folly of Youth part 1. Both missions can be downloaded from Thiefmissions.com.
Malau is working on a modified and extended version of the OM Ambush from Thief 2. Check out the screenshots link to see how it looks.
Slipknot has announced his return to dromEd after many months. He lost both of his missions in progress, Dawn Patrol and Ketcham Redrum, but the last one will be remade.
Dyald, author of Damsel in distress, has informed us that the sequel (The Skygem Connection) will be released very soon. The only thing that holds the author of releasing it right now, is a video that it's currently being made.
The last big news of this update is that Morrgan has changed the adress to her Homepage.
Again, a full list of changes may be found here.
