Hey guys!

I'm new around these parts, and I'm very excited and crazed with anticipation for the coming of Thief 3! In Thief: The Dark Project, and Thief: The Metal Age, there was talk amongst soldiers and peasants around the city. That talk was of their Great Baron being off in a distant land to fight a war, or something to that extent. What I was wondering; do you guys think their Baron will make an appearance in Thief 3? I think it would be an awesome addition to the game..since they mentioned a lil' something about him in the first two episodes.

Take care guys,

John

Yes, the baron was mentioned in the two first games. So was the war. I too hope there will be at least some mention of it in DS.

Yeah, I remember that there were talk about the Baron especially in Thief II where someone was worried about the sheriff and the mechanists ruling the city while the Baron is in the war or something like that. It seems like this Baron is some sort of leader of the city or head of the lords or something.

Pretty much, Garon. While the Baron was gone (presumably out fighting) he appointed the sherrif control over the city and that's how all the fun started in Thief 2.

Also, I'm not certain if this is correct, but I believe 'the Baron' was the victim of the first mission in T2 (Garrett grasping a nice opportunity there, striking the night he was out). Then again, it could have been someone else.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, I don't know the games as well as I would like to!

Bafford was the first mission in T1, not T2. Did you mean T1? I honestly don't remeber the first T2 mission. :)

Bleh, you're right. The first mission in T2 is rescuing someones lover. Sorry for the confusion, I need to get back in the game :)

Lady Rumford's.

Yup, I know it only mentions the lady considering the woman is one of her servants, and not a lords (can't remember any readables in the mission though to recall if there is one or not). But, it's quite possible! what with there being a lord as well.

If you bothered to read the thread, you'd know that the Baron is mentioned a couple times through the games, especially Thief 2. He's mentioned in a couple texts, about how he's off to war.
