There is a recording of the first chapter of "Thieves" being played to be found here: http://kiwi6.com/file/n9pd105e1q
Sadly my group has not met in quite a while, but I am narrating a PBP game at Steelministy.info that you can feel free to peruse. Though you said that you did not have much time so I don't know how much that will help you.
My campaign is set 50 years before the books so I do alot of foreshadowing but not much with the cannon. I find that my experiance is similar to Leonerd's
The story isn't quite finished, I have the important NPCs planned out as well as the main events, but I'm making lots of it up as we play. You can have the setting if you want. It's meant for a typical thief group, basically the players get a task and have to find a way to carry it out.
My group seems to be kind of unpredictable so far. ... I actually have no idea what his plans are with her, but he somehow wants to convince her to be their in or something.
I spent weeks thinking how to get into the mansion and find the right info, but from the get go my players have forced me to be a better narrator and add to the city. Adding NPC's adding extra backstories, adding side adventures, and LOTS of extra secrets. I was not planning to have any of them get into one of the mansions, but they were insistent, (and successful against the high odds) so we made a mansion that is one of my favorites, and it led me to another side adventure.
The system is loose and light on structure, but I think it works nicely. If you would like to look at my notes I can PM them to you.
