(Hover and click)
v1.2B(13) is downwards compatible to v1.2A(13).

Note: to import codes of v1.2A(13) or older, use -comp instead of -load!
Only codes of 1.2A(13) are currently supported by the "-comp" command. If you have older codes, load and save them in 1.2A(13) to convert them into the new format!


CHANGELOG (v1.2B (13)):

- Slimes now have a limited lifespan
- Slimes now have reduced HP and no longer regenerate HP

- disenchanting a weapon will now always yield a raremat
- disenchanting everything else will yield a common mat
- 3 item requirement from disenchanting removed
- Fixed a tooltip error with the monk talent for Symbol of Fury
- merc ressurection/dismiss now share a slot in the command card
- Reduced HP of Overseer
- Slightly reduced number of missiles created by 'Fel Nova'

- PvP command in-combat bug fixed

- Jolting Strikes Cooldown reduced to 15 seconds
- Distracting Weapon is now an instant-cast self-buff only, but cooldown was reduced to 30 seconds (20 with talent)
- Distracting Weapon Mana cost removed
- Distracting Weapon now also generates a decent amount of threat on it's own when cast (similar to Demoralizing Shout)
- Bladefury will now stop once the caster dies
- Pets will now be considered as the same level as the caster when performing level checks (for hit & crit mechanics)
- Battering Ram now works as intended
- Frostbite now also colors the affected unit
- Spell Mirror cooldown reduced to 25 seconds
- Fire Shield damage increased to SP x 0.4
- Added a new boss to beta test

CHANGELOG (v1.2B (11)):

- Fixed a tooltip bug with Souls
- Fixed a bug with stashes not appearing correctly when loading vaults
- Removed shadows from stashes
- Fixed a bug where sometimes souls appeared out of nowhere when importing characters

- Summoned units no longer drop souls

CHANGELOG (v1.2B (9)):

- Vault, once loaded, can not be "repicked"
- Vault autosaves whenever a hero is saved
- Saving will now process a HTML file instead of a raw .txt, to improve readability
--> if asked for a confirmation about activating script plugins upon opening these HTML files, confirm it and add this folder to any whitelists regarding scripts

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 ...

Sad ... 44 downloads and not a single feedback.

EDIT: Funny to read this again after over 100.000 downloads and almost 500.000 hits ...

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

Oh my God the terrain... O.o ...It's almost perfect, but why so few playable ground ? You sure need to expand it much more. Keep updating it and this will be a fantastic map. Thanks :)

- 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)

nice terrain, nice gameplay, we had much fun.
but some bugs,

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.
