“"This game sucks. It’s so dark and gloomy. It’s too similar to Dishonored." I always told myself when I first started playing Thief. Then I suddenly got into the story, Garrett’s and Basso’s remarks and jokes, and even the Master Thief’s husky voice. I can honestly say I’ve fallen in love with the game."

Thief is the original stealth game! Even though Dishonored is somewhat similar, I still enjoy Thief much more (of course!) and I’m so happy to hear you are loving it too, taffer! Thanks for the confession! Enjoy :)

“Everyone is obsessed with Garrett’s hands - well I’m obsessed with Orion’s hands. They’re so big and strong and he wears silver rings. I _LOVE_ when guys wear silver rings. This is so sexy. Sadly his beard is kind of hideous. If he’d put a paper bag over his head, I’d go for it.”

I’m sorry (not sorry) taffer for this GIF!! I couldn’t help it. I wanted to make sure I got both Orion’s hands and silver rings but, for your sake, I tried and placed a paper bag over his “hideous beard” ;) Thanks for the confession! Enjoy!

“I enjoyed the back story of how the Thief-Taker General comes to hate Garrett so personally and how it’s a recurring theme in the game. I think it shows great attention to detail and is one of the best parts of the story.”

I liked it too, fellow taffer! Very interesting for sure :) Thanks for your confession! Enjoy!

Semi-hiatus.

Hello fellow taffers,

I’ve been feeling a bit better these days thanks to all the love I’ve received from amazing taffers like yourselves! :) Thank you for all your lovely messages, for understanding and for being so caring. It means a lot and I really appreciate it :)

I have a lot of catching up to do, so please bear with me as I get the confessions posted over the course of this week and the next.

A couple long-awaited blog-related posts will be up sometime soon as well.

Thank you all again!

Medical Hiatus

Hello fellow taffers,

My apologies the blog has been inactive. I have received your confessions, thank you, but it will take a while before I can post them. I am very ill with a few injuries, rendering me useless, and I’m trying to heal up, hence the medical hiatus. I hope to return soon once I am feeling better.

Thank you kindly for understanding and for your patience. It means a lot!

“By the way, I love blog . But now here is my confession, when I played the game, I didn’t pay much attention to the whole, “I don’t kill unless I have too.” I just went about killing whoever got in my way. But at the end, I realized his morel and I felt like I ruined the game for myself. Now I’m playing the game over again, making sure I don’t kill a bunch of people.”

“I’m not sure if you’ll publish this confession but it’s a confession and it’s related to Thief, which is why I wanted to send it in. Here it is: “I haven’t read Thief fan fics but have heard of many. There is this one particular fan fic going around these days where Garrett is shipped with some OC and involves a creature. I just feel the whole original Thief realm, what it was and who Garrett is/was has been completely destroyed by this one fan fic. Every taffer is in to this fic and I feel that Thief is no longer Thief, what it used to be, but instead has become this whole new fandom with this fic. A fandom where if you don’t like the fic or haven’t read it, people exclude you completely. They don’t talk to you. It’s like this elite club or something. I think its destroyed Thief and, as a veteran fan, I’m really upset about it. Fan fics are cool, but they shouldn’t become some sort of massive elite group and completely change what the original fandom/game/character was. Sorry for the wall of text but that’s how I feel and I wanted others to know about it.” “

I contemplated long and hard about publishing this confession as I know which fan fic you are referring to, fellow taffer. I finally chose to publish it as it is a Thief confession and all confessions are welcome…and to me it seemed like you are not necessarily bashing any particular fans or their fics etc, but in general giving an opinion of how you feel about something. I may be in the wrong, but I hope not. As I say, to each his or her own. Thank you for the confession.

I don’t really have a huge confession, other than I love the Thief games so much I got a tribute of it on my back! It’s brand new as of today. I really wish everyone loved Thief as much as me so people would recognize the symbols as I walk down the street.
Feel free to shorten this confession as you see fit :)
That’s AWESOME fellow taffer!! I love it!! Thanks for sharing your tattoo with us! I’m considering getting one myself! I’ll post it on the other Thief blog that I run as well, if you don’t mind. Apologies for the late post…but thanks again for the awesome submission!! Enjoy!
