This mission uses Greenhorn’s excellent models.
Strife was a game released in May 1996, by Velocity Development and Rogue Entertainment. It was built on a heavily modified DooM® engine. One of the unusual features of the game was that the player could travel between levels (there were 34 total).
Welcome to the Thief 2 conversion of Strife. This was actually my first attempt at DromEd. However, due to the complexity of the level and my total ignorance of DromEd, it was scrapped. Although I have attempted to re-create the original initial mission, the storyline has been revamped. This will (I hope) become a campaign, where more of the levels are introduced and the story unfolds. This is why you will see areas sealed off for future missions.

On Normal, you have notes strung throughout the mission to help you find your way. Some AI are missing, there is less loot to hunt down, and extra powerups are available.
The blackjack is included in the player’s inventory on Normal. On Hard and Expert, you’ll find it in different places.
It is possible to “complete” the final objective before getting all the loot. However, you won’t be able to end the mission.
