A good evening to all you Taffers.
My friends and associates call me Gray. I've been collecting and playing Thief: The Dark Project and Thief II: The Metal Age fan missions for over a decade to this day. In the process, I seem to have picked up some of the series' protagonist's mannerisms, as I've only ever been lurking around the community, with little, if any, interaction or contribution to speak of.
I aim to change that at least modestly with a presence on thiefguild.com, i.e. ratings and reviews of missions that I've played over the years. And in order to be more effective and consistent in that effort, I will adapt the site's 10-star rating system to my needs:
By default, I consider a 5/10 rating an equivalent to an original Thief 1 or 2 mission in overall quality. An FM that in no way surpasses OMs, but is inferior to them in some tangible way earns a lower score with me.
