How It Begins

You are an art student and almost a thief. You've snuck into the Byzantine hall of the Museum to steal a gem-encrusted golden chalice which you can see on its plinth before you. You're wearing a cat burglar suit and some borrowed high-tech night-vision goggles. You're carrying a multitool and a scrap of paper.

This should be simple. Just nab the chalice.

Trivia and Comments

  • "Byzantine perspective", also known as reverse perspective, is an art term that refers to a type of perspective drawing style where the vanishing point appears to be in front of the painting. In Byzantine perspective, distant things appear larger, and nearby things appear smaller.
