If you experience crashes during the loading process, try set your Texture Quality setting to high. That should fix the problem. I also recommend setting Light Quality to high, or you might encounter graphic bugs inside dungeons.
Years have passed since the poison of Gaia sprung forth from the lands. Corrupted forests, inhospitable to all, have spread across the face of Kurodan, and borders have faded as all fled before the encroachment of the toxic spores. Ankhmaron, the last haven protected by the Grand River, has sent out messengers to gather volunteers for the task of finding a cure to the plague.
In a tavern close to the village Riversdale, a small group of adventurers have gathered, unknowing, that their search will turn out not to be just a race against time ...

I know that I didn't add everyone to the Credits I used resources from. I lost track on all the things I imported into the map. If you made something I didn't give credit to, send me a PM please and the name of the resource.
Moderator Comments (Director's Cut - Highly Recommended)

ap0calypse: Director's Cut!
All 3 (current) map moderators agreed on this one.
It's a unique, high-quality map which certainly deserves a high rating.
Just finished fooling around with it. This is a solid map - the terrain is great, the systems are smoothly implemented, and it does everything well, so far. It falls into many of the standard ORPG traps, i.e. standard classes and boring abilities, but the quality of the rest of it makes up for that.
I'd love to see more, since there's only a bit of terrain at the moment :) 5/5
Hmm, I agree that the actual classes and abilities are nothing special, but well, you can't expect some BAM style spells on the first levels ... ^^
But since there will be an "evolving" system, I think we can add some more spice later.
I will, btw, release an updated version today, fixing almost all of the current bugs and implementing some new features (armor point based instead of % based, resistances, new item stats, etc.)
I like a lot about this! Excellent environment and game mechanics.
I dislike not having a backpack or some way to carry items that aren't equipped.
XP seems a bit slow, although quests are pretty nice.
Bug found: Giant Crab was found invulnerable after our party died to him. Later found many invulnerable creatures.
Also tavern owner won't allow us to complete the bandit sealed message

- new stat system (armor is now point based, not percentage based; new item stats like crit or resistances implemented)
- new magician model
- caster classes will now also have attachment models (however, for now, it's just special shoulder pads. Next version will also include animated cloaks and capes)
- fixed a lot of bugs, optimized source code
amm this map looks small.. only 2 grounds? lol... its smaler than alpha
Yeah I know there is few content yet. However, the existing content easily lasts for up to 2 hours. It's just that the map is HUGE (480x480), so it looks small ...

Yes, I know about that. I am currently trying to fix this, though it's a very annoying bug that I simply can't figure out -_-'

Could you be more precise please? What exactly happened? Did you repick between doing the quests? The quests are stored to the actual hero, not the player. If you repick and select a new hero, you can do all the quests again, of course.
