I am curious is Thief 3 Deadly Shadows glyph's exists in real world or it's just game creators self idea? Maybe glyph's taken from some language or some field of knowledge such as astrology? Tell me please if you know something or see this glyph's elsewhere...

...cover quite a lot of the speculation.

The major glyphs used in TDS go all the way back to the first games, with lots of glyphs in each game never seen in the other two. There are real world lookalikes, but there is no strong indication it's more than a coincidence, but there are some nice coincidences, as well as a lot of lousy ones.

Thanks! It seems archaic Chinese glyphs are very close... http://www.ttlg.com/forums/showthread.php?t=111337&p=1745611&viewfull=1#post1745611
Strange, I was thinking that it's African glyphs...

Yes, thats fine! Thery close to my opinion (http://forum.darkfate.ru/index.php/topic,1219.0.html). They think it's African VOODOO or American Indian shamanism...
