View Full Version : Deadly Shadows a Prequel?

25th Feb 2004, 17:44
I was checking out the official Thief3 Website. The story Line posted up on there seems that it could be pretty interesting. It mentioned an upcoming Dark Age. It got me thinking if this was the reason that they didnt stick to the Thief III name, being that this is a prequel to Thief 1. If I remember correctly, in Thief 2 that creepy child read a prohecy of an upcoming Metal Age but I cant recall if a Dark Age was mentioned. The website also showed some of the Characters that are in the game. The Keepers were mentioned aswell as the Hammers. Nothing about the Mechanists, and as I remember the Hammers were just about done with in Thief 2. Any Thoughts Guys?

DS is 100% not a prequel. The Metal Age played out in Thief 2, and now the Dark Age is coming. With Karras gone, the Mechanists are done for, so the Hammerites can return to the City.
