Virtual Tourist - Thief 3/23/14



City Streets and Extra Jobs

The Bank Job

I thought I'd mention controls real quick.

"E" is for just about Everything. "W", "S", "A", "D" do what they do in most games and then a little more in certain situations. The one control you'll forget about and which is NOT intuitive is the Right Click on the Mouse when you're looking through keyholes/peep holes or get put into any kind of puzzle/turn knobs situation. I've flailed once or twice forgetting about the bloody thing. On everything else you get key hints but that! (DOH!)

Oh yeah, See this obelisk? When you buy the wrench, go take a look. There's a plaque to collect from it but also a mysterious button that I expect will come into play later.

You can eavesdrop on the townspeople to get clues on where money and jewels may be hidden. (Turn on your subtitle option as the volume on some of these varies widely. Sound glitches?)

Isn't that pretty?

Local bar near your fence and the dude you buy stuff from.

Mini map can be turned on on the right. Doesn't always help. You will get lost here. lol.

The Bank. Imposing, isn't it?

DO NOT try the bank until you've been able to buy the wire cutters, which help disable traps. Trust me on this.

Second floor interior.

And yes, they have alarm systems!!!! You can extinguish them with water arrows. Just make sure you are angled right. Had a blast knocking all these out. Bwahahaha

The Vault. You think getting past that means you're almost done. And that would be wrong!

This is inside the vault. A whole new set of alarms and TRAPS! Many traps. Focus came in handy here.

They're so sneaky! And when they say locker, they mean the small safe's before the big vault.

The trap I missed (cause I thought I got them all) did this. Two seconds later, I was dead. Look before you touch!

The collectible loot!

Trap mechanism up there.

This guy is everywhere! Talk about EGO

The poorer side of town.

Creepy house.

Antlers and heads in all his decorating. Eek.

Have an awesome Sunday!

The King is Dead! Long Live the Undead King!

"What are you implying?"

The magister glided forward and scrunched down beside him.

"That in order to bathe, you must first actually get into the bath."

It took everything from her, except revenge!

The muscles in my right arm jerked from tension as I tried to make it move and it resisted. A shrill scream inside my head insisted I didn't want to do this. That if I did, there'd be no way to take it back. "I...I'm afraid."


(2011) Young Adult – Fantasy

Which is worse…the monster without or within?


Home—family—the two things he would never have, the two things forever denied him…because of her.

Anger welled inside him, the heat of it suffusing him to the core, gurgling with seething emotions the total opposite of the coolness splashing down from the fountain nearby. Before he realized what he was doing, Jarrin stepped inside the gazebo.

“Harry Potter meets Dragon Riders of Pern”


“Do you need any help?” she asked. “Just tell me what you want me to do. If you prefer, I’m sure I can round up at least a few people to come over and give you a hand.”

Kel slowly shook his head. “It’s all right. Thanks anyway.” His voice lowered to where she almost couldn’t hear it. “This is all part of my punishment.’

She frowned, not understanding what he meant. “Punishment?”

Kel cocked his head in Clarence’s direction. In a flash, she understood. None of this was an accident. Clarence had landed there deliberately, hoping to make Kel pay for all he went through in the past month. She shook her head, not wanting to believe this, but what the dragon said next took any doubts right out of her head.

(2008) Young Adult – Fantasy
“To save the world she must DIE! Or must she?”


Panic and fear filled with utter helplessness made her dizzy. She knew what would be done with her, she knew what they planned. But there was nothing she could do to stop any of it.

Sharp gasps echoed in her ears as she felt the room’s cold air caress the Eye.

“You were right. She is the one.”

(2002) Adult/YA – Japanese Fantasy Adventure
“The Last Samurai meets Pirates of the Caribbean”


Laying the blade on the floor before him, Toshi parted his kimono until his stomach lay exposed. He tucked his sleeves beneath his legs to hold him upright if he should falter. Ignoring Asano, he took up the blade. His shoulder flared with pain and he tried not to flinch, as he grabbed the blade with both hands. He turned the wakizashi until its sharp point was aimed at his belly, the residence of his soul.

(2004) Adult/YA – Fantasy Mystery
“He tried to forget his past, but his past wouldn’t forget him”


Torren took a step back a sudden shudder racking through him. It was as if he’d never left, as if the boy he’d been would be coming back-though the one who’d loved this room and all these things was long, long dead. That boy died when he’d watched his father’s blood pour forth from his mouth, the end of a sword protruding from his abdomen. That boy died when he survived while everyone else lay dead.
