    DONT BELIEVE HIM!

    RLF - Rodent liberation front. They liberate rodents with porn, torture, abuse, and animal testing. They use very advanced techniques, which are camping, and uhhh, camping. Usually the RLF starts whining whenever they are defeated by thieves using the extremely advanced tactic of BJ whoredom.

      KO = Knock Out

      Mario = Jumping on someone's head from high up. Does damage as guard, KOs as thief. Think of the height as how far you pull back your sword or BJ, a small jump on a helmeted guard will just break his helmet.

      Frontal KO = What he said, but also if the guard has very low life: getting hit by a BJ hurts a few drops (Hardly to the extent of a sword or arrow though) Though if this happens, you'd probably hear less complaining by the guard.

      Benny = The easiest AI difficulty level. Some players are such Bennys.

      Clever = The generally-accepted 1.4 multipurpose difficulty level (Though you may see Normal being used in Thiefmatch)

      Genius = The difficulty level that's just too darned hard. Could see it being used on Cooperative mode

      Thiefmatch = Mode of gameplay of Thieves vs All Other Thieves vs AI Guards.

      Sword nerf = Thieves can't swing the sword as fast as they could in 1.2 "Aww, I would have killed you if it weren't for the sword nerf". Guards were unaffected.

      Cooperative = Human Thieves vs AI Guards. Obviously, pretty easy, there are some extra options that make your team lose if you KO\Kill a guard or die. That makes it harder.

      Crack = Crack arrows. Get hit by one or run into the green gas and you can barely see, and walk all over the place drunk-like. Also could be referring to "herb bags" commonly found in some levels...

      Para = Paralyze. Usually guard's Paralyze Bolts, or stepping on caltrops as thief makes you paralyzed.

      FB = Firebolt OR Flashbomb. Items that are almost as cool as me!

      Lift = The exit in Aquatone. Sometimes smart, devious thieves will put some evidence up there, so the guards won't know they lost until it's too late.

        Funny thing is, there are no longer any rodents IN the RLF. We're all out here. RLF exists to maintain the fiction that they're about freeing the world for rodents, while instead repressing and enslaving them.

          Welcome Pulmsie.

          As you can very well see, this community is a very n00b friendly based one. We love it when we get new people.

          A few other things to know:

          There are several players out there wh like to help n00bs learn to play in a multiplayer setting. Aggamemnon comes to mind.

          People here love to bicker about tactics and playstyles. Only the RLF really whines about it. Most other people let you play however you want.

          Play however you want. If you find a tactic, like BJing and sword-thieving and enjoy it or are good a it, use it. Don't worry about anyone complaining. Some people just enjoy complaining.

          Spammers. Yeah, we have major spammage from a few members here, CD and LR are the biggest two, but CD's is usually useless, while LR's may have a point sometime.

          Don't take anything personally. Several things here are said in a joking or fun manor, so don't take offense to anything. If you do, let them know by PMing (private messaging).

          Read the forum rules. Some people just don't understand rules and why we have them.

          Guilds. Guilds are groups of people that play together, have practice together, play against other guilds in matches. Guild membership is usually exclusive: you can only be in one.

          Taffing: thieving

          Other than that, welcome and have a great time taffing around.

            That's debatable. I doubt the guards in the Thief series meant thieving when they used it

              Arghhh!! I hate you guys
              But most of all I hate my bro. Sometimes I think he is twin to Old_Joe or something. It's a good thing he doesn't play that much these days.

                Cheers Curunir; enjoying it all already. And yeah its gucci that it is newbie friendly.

                As for Taffer, I've had a scout around for info on it and apparently it was made up by one of thief's project designers; meant to mean street scum, lowlife etc. However there are similar words that DO mean something...

                Taffy = Welshman
                Taffer = (more or less) Trickster
                Taff is apparently a word for 'spit' i.e "I taff on you!" So it would make sense that Taffer means 'Spitter'... although I can't imagine people running around saying "Ah you spitter!"

                So perhaps Taffer means that you are a Welsh Trickster who spits?...

                ...or maybe this is just a load of guff and the word WAS just made up.

                  There was a HUGE debate about the origins of "taffer" on TTLG. Despite the fact that it seems they borrowed it from Wales, Lulu Lamer (I think) says she made it up. It's a pretty general word if you have a look at some of the usage in TDP ("hey, quit taffin' about") but you can work out the basic meaning - which I can assure you, isn't 'spit'.

                    Hey, mad_Bergil is a rodent. And so is Slappy. And V12US has a long poofy flagella, so that kinda makes him like a squirrel virus.

                      Gerbil is dead. I killed him.

                      The Bergil guy is a doofus. Then again, we knew that already.

                      Slappy is too busy playing Angband variants + Nethack. That, and filming the rodent porn.

                      That leaves Virus, who like, got corrupted by the RLF...

                      And Poe, who doesn't wear the RLF tag, because she can't take the abuse I direct at the RLF.

                      And the Judge, who I have seen all of twice.

                      Oh, we forgot Kore, a bigger BJ whore then Nemesis... No wonder they sold him for live testing...

                            A "fun manor"? What is that, like a circus house or something?

                              Most likely an attempt to copy the Mobile Manor, which will hopefully also be fun...

                              It's not my fault everything you like is terrible.

                                If anyone wants a run through some of the multiplayer aspects pm me and ill setup the CTG practice server for a night through the week.

                                Oh yeah, for some clan/guild names and meaning visit the guild boards for the spam of linkage in those threads.

                                Potion whore and Cheap KOs come under the basis of a thief drinking all the 3 useful potions to KO a Guard, since invis, catfall, and speed are nearly unbeatable, if a very expensive way to get a single BJ, best reserved to get objectives or make a fine escape imo. <-- In my opinion :wink:
