  • blank cells = inapplicable or definitely unknown
    unknown = a lesser/unverified unknown
    yes = yes, no = no
  • NPC: non-player characters (computer-controlled characters)
  • RPG: role-playing game
  • Internet Archive Wayback Machine: old/dead website archive
  • Wikipedia: Wikipedia is an encyclopedia (that anyone can edit) which provides more detailed info and is mostly used here on feature terms (genre, publisher, developer, etc); the icon won't show
  • To better see the table, reduce the font size and/or increase the screen resolution (the larger the better). This page was designed for at least 1024x768 screen resolution.
  • Navigation: I've found using the keyboard to move around is faster than the mouse (assuming you have a fast keyboard repeat rate and low key press delay setup in your BIOS and OS) but keyboard horizontal movement is really slow in Internet Explorer (IE). Mousewheels help, too, providing they scroll smoothly enough. Pointix's Scroll++ (crack) scrolling software works great, too, but IE doesn't work with it horizontally, and vertical scrolling is way too fast; plus Pointix seems to be defunct. Some mice (Logitech) have an "autoscroll" feature that works well and Microsoft's horizontal tiltwheel mice work too (but not very smoothly). But the best way to navigate this table is with Scrollbar Anywhere, a Mozilla Firefox extension.

    Thief vs. Thief Gold
    (by David Byron)

  • 3 new huge missions: "The Downwind Thieves' Guild", "The Mages' Tower", "The Song of the Caverns"
  • bonus mission
  • Each talisman now has its own mission, due to the additions.
  • "The Lost City": Craymen removed, Mages added, return path added to the arena area for those who jump instead of extending the bridge.
  • "Cragscleft": Guards in prison cell block patrol more thoroughly and frequently.
  • "The Sword": A large new area was added to the mansion.
  • Brother Murus now voiced by Robin Williams.
  • Added Fire shadows (new creature) to "Bonehoard" and "The Haunted Cathedral" to provide a source of fire crystals.
  • "Bonehoard": Textures changed to aid navigation, architecture modified for fire shadows.
  • "Return to the Cathedral": Propping the doors open no longer works.
