  • Websites/movies with Thievery/ medieval themes

    Looking for Thievery/medieval 'related or like' sites, that have alot of pictures of structures, buildings, architecture, etc that would help in getting some design and aesthetic ideas for mapping. Also, any films that would supply ideas? Thanks.

    If you're looking for inspiration for Thievery maps, perhaps Victorian would be more appropriate? In that case, in addition to being an excellent movie, "Dangerous Liasons" has some marvellous Victorian architecture and decoration, from an urban mansion, to a countryhouse, to some peasant slums.

        Watch it the first time for the movie. It's fantastic. Then watch it for the settings.

          Thievery style is victorian for sure , but I got the feeling that the original Thief style was more middleage , Name of the Rose kind...

            What is Name of the Rose?

            I think it's the name of the book thief got inspired from... but I'm not sure.

              Sleepy Hollow!

              It's one of the most visually stylish films I've seen, and it has tons of architecture. Some bookshelves in Breandor are from a scene near the beginning

              Other than that, google image search will turn up a certain amount of reference. Anything from Medieval through Tudor to Victorian can fit.

                  Go to Normandy, well, any french old town, and you've got enough to make 20 maps.

                  I did :wink:

                    Um...how about...oh...Thief and Thief 2. Seriously, walk around in the City levels (The Thieves' Highway level, for example). The buildings the Thief2 are a combonation of Victorian/Steampunk/New York. Nice tall apartment buildings with turret walls and metal pipes and machinery here and there.

                        ...and Life Of the Party <not so gr8...
                        I hate you.

                        Life of Party was the best map in T2! Well, not the Mechanist Tower (?), but the houses!

                          The Unwelcome Guest (the Thief 2 demo) was an early version of Life of the Party, with more roofs and less mechanist tower. Unfortunately, these roofs were removed (along with several other features, such as a second direction from which to approach the tower, and possible access to the tower roof) - probably because the resources they used were needed to create the remaining floors of the tower.
