This mission takes place around the start of Thief2. Before Garrett knows too much about the Mechanists.
Its mid summer, and the last rays of the sun are disappearing slowly behind the horizon. Most people are beginning to settle in for the night, but not you. No, you 'Garrett' the master thief are standing outside lord Bradford's mansion with the strong intention of robbing him of everything he owns. All you need to decide on is a point of entry.
Should you lock pick one of the lower windows? or should climb one of the drainpipes to reach a high level window which is more out of sight? You could even be a little more adventurous and see if one of the guards possibly has a key to the mansion. Using the guards very own equipment for your advantage, just because you can, because your 'Garrett' the greatest thief this city has ever seen. People who know you say that your thieving abilities are the only true art form left in this city. With the Mechanists slowly taking over the city, and Sheriff Truart beginning to come down hard on people in you line of work. You're going to need all of your skills just to stay alive. And this is the thanks you get for saving the world? All around you, your seeing the rich getting richer, and the poor getting poorer. Well, its time to tip the balance a little in the poor mans favour tonight.
Before you were side tracked with saving the world from the Trickster. Robbing Bradford's mansion was high on your 'to do list'. Returning to the mansion you find that things have changed since you first contemplated this criminal endeavour. It seems that Lord Bradford has joined the ranks of the Mechanists, and after a large donation towards the cause he's been given what can only be describe as a small army of Mechanist guards to protect his mansion. Not to worry, nothings changed, it was only a matter of time before you crossed paths with the Mechanists. Personally you think these Mechanists are nothing but trumped up Hammerites. And have as much chance of catching you as the Hammers did, ZERO. So your going to have your head split open by a mace instead of a hammer, big deal, its still going to hurt either way! And your sure that you'll be seeing a lot more of these mechanists in the future. So tonight will be good practice.
So tonight you're going after what this so-called Mechanist Lord values the most, his GOLD and plenty of it. You've also heard that he's recently brought three rare paintings, these can also be added to your shopping list. The paintings will almost certainly be on display somewhere in the mansion, so you'd better keep your eyes open for them. Failing this, finding the Lords bedroom will probably offer some sort of a lead to the whereabouts of these paintings. You know how predictable these Lords are, always willing to help you out by writing things down! Tut tut will they ever learn?
You've also heard a rumour that the Lord has a one of a kind jewelled sword in his possession. This will fetch a handsome price, if you can find it. This could be on display? but more likely will be locked up in a safe or a vault. But know doubt if you keep your eyes open, you'll find some kind of clue to its location. So your objectives are clear! clean him out, steal 3 paintings along with a jewelled sword, and be back home chomping on a burrick steak before anyone even knows they've mysteriously gone missing. After all you've been through, its good to get back to what you do best! Robbing the rich, to giving to yourself :)
