  • Box Desguises

    Ever had problems with guards that use boxes to block doors/objectives? I know I have. Sure, some may see it as fair, but I see it as guards getting free traps that thieves have a harder time getting around than caltrops or mines.

    Therefore, I think that thieves should be able to use big boxes to disguise themselves. Thieves might be able to sneek around box ridden areas almost undetected then, and if guards want to find them, they must smash the boxes. Also, a thief in a box could be carried by a guard, which would be a great way to get into heavily guarded areas unseen.

    What do you guys think?

      in realism, a guard whould notice the overburdening weight of a box with a thief inside. but that would be pretty cool

        Unless he thought it was full of something other than thief. Yards of cloth, bottles of wine, preserved food, that kind of thing.

          "Smash all the boxes to make sure there aren't thieves in them!!"

          "Uh, now what can we block the doors with?..."

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

            (Heh, I envisioned a box with two feet sticking out of the bottom, sneaking around and hiding behind bushes etc.)

            Hmm, the Theif could have a knot-hole view, somewhat like the overlay for the telescope. Of course, a thief might just end up sitting in a box for the whole game

                I don't think The Builder would approve of Guards smashing boxes for no apparent reason other than the fact that a thief may be in there...

                    Yeah, and if thieves could break the box over the guard and KO or something, that'd be great... "OMG!! BOXWHORE!"


                    OMG! Why don't crates thrown from high distances kill thieves or guards? I'd love it on Flats.

                      Thrown objects, if going fast enough, and if heavy enough, should KO a guard.

                      The idea has been around since SongOfTheCaverns in Thief Gold.

                      The box thing could be fun too...

                          better yet , take the suspicious boxes in Korman and throw them from the bell tower

                          How about making filled boxes inflict more damage when falling ? This could lead to fancy strategies...
