Overview



Forsaken Bastion's Fall (FBF) is a map that combines Tower Defense gameplay with an AoS-like Hero PvP Battle. Our project started in 2008, when it was known as Defense of the Undead (DotU). As time went on, ideas, criticizing, and suggestions reshaped DotU into a whole new map which was then completely remade from scratch to become what it is now.

FBF is set in a completely new universe with an extensive lore that keeps growing as time goes by. It is set in a key point of the World's history: At the very end of a long war that present many great changes at social, political and religious levels. The players can choose from 2 teams and 5 different factions. The Forsaken, an ancient cult of necromancers and it's undead army, have to defend their last fortress from The Alliance (The Infidel), a coalition of human nations using their last resources to take down the Forsaken.

There is a total of 5 factions, 27 heroes, 104 items (8 base items and 24 items unique to each faction), 27 minions with varied statistics and skills, and 11 towers for the Forsaken to use. Alongside a great map terrain and an extensive lore.

    Story



    It was thus written in old legends that on the clearest of nights, when the winds of the Peninsula were calm and peaceful, and the traveling merchants felt safe and secure, little would they suspect that they were being watched by an uncanny rider called Mundzuk and Octar, his ride, whose might and savageness were matched only by Mundzuk's battle proficiency. Rushing from the shadows with speed like a midnight blast, the victims of this duo never had a chance to retaliate before they were slain mercilessly. As if on the wings of the wind, the mysterious figures, having gathered up their trophies of the hunt, would vanish without a trace. The Behemoth's reign of terror lasted for many years until the day the hands of death claimed their life.

    Centuries later, the Wizard, by the machinations of fate, discovered a nameless tomb containing the remains of the legendary rider, who had always been thought of as a myth. The Wizard offered them a second chance in life in exchange for their unquestionable loyalty. The fearsome Behemoth has returned, serving in the frontline of the Forsaken army and crushing all who dare oppose his new master's will.

    "When hell freezes over, the cold shall traverse the Peninsula." – Akull, the Cold Jester.

    A tale that sent chills down one’s spine told of a frosty jester who was cold and ever-bitter. Fed up with being given the cold shoulder all the time by this unfunny buffoon, his Lord used the harsh harvest of one winter as an excuse to kill off the jester in cold blood, proclaiming his death as a sacrifice to the Winter God. The jester's heart was the only thing left, frozen and buried in the snow.

    Many years later, when the Lord was taking a stroll in his winter garden, as the cool breezes brushed past him, a freezing mist that materialized into a monstrous being exuding a bone-chilling aura appeared in front of him. “Ice to meet you, m'lord” were the last words the Lord heard before he was frozen solid and shattered. It is said that the former jester has returned, now known only as the Ice Avatar, and he has brought the icy apocalypse to this world.

    Legend has it that many years ago there lived a beautiful woman who was loved and cherished by all, called Lady Venefica. As time went by, she grew old and lost her appeal. Turning to witchcraft as her last resort, the woman followed an ancient ritual of sacrificing children and absorbing their essence to restore her youth. Her actions were noticed by the holy men and she was hanged afterwards. Suffering for days as the stolen life force slowly slipped away, until one day she finally died.

    A few years later, the holy men who had hanged the woman before were met on the road with mysterious sounds that began to emanate from all around them. Desperately casting all their holy spells and magic to no avail, they ran in terror as fear invaded their mighty hearts. The wailing and weeping, like a child's cry, split the silence of the night unyielding. What ensued next was a symphony of screams and blood, concluding with a sonata of eerie silence.

    Necromancers. Masters of the dark arts of death. Renowned for their ability to summon undead forces from the corpses of slain enemies and turn even their former comrades into mindless, brutal skeletons. They are an indispensable portion of the Wizard’s army. One among them, however, wishes beyond being a mere death caller.

    Kakos Tabularius researched forbidden tomes and descended further into the dark art, obtaining powers that far exceed a normal necromancer’s capability. Careless, he went a step too far and experimented secret necromastery arts on his own body, turning himself into an undead being. The unexpected result did not disappoint him in the slightest, for he had finally made a breakthrough by being the only to actually tread the border of life and death.

    Story



    Reports from a remote region of the Peninsula detailed how a small village was wiped out virtually overnight and the bodies of the villagers were all murdered in a horrendous, brutal manner. The Wizard, who was situated nearby, did not miss out the occasion to investigate this mystery. Arriving at the scene, his men were ambushed by oversized, vicious beetles. However, the attack proved to be fruitless as the Wizard effortlessly repelled the creatures and pushed them back to their hive: a tremendous ancient temple.

    The subsequent excavation resulted in the unearthing of the skeleton of a giant, monstrous beetle. Figuring an apparent link between this skeleton and the earlier attacks, the Wizard decided on a whim to resurrect this enigmatic being, injecting an unwavering loyalty to it in the process. This 'Lord of the Crypt', called so by his new master is considered an exceptionally filthy and despicable being even among the undead masses as it possesses horrifying abilities, including ambushing the enemies from below, injecting his spawn to them and watching with pleasure as his young bursts forth from the corpse of the victim.

    Story



    Ancient tomes speak of a malicious necromantic ritual involving sewing the corpses of different beings together and attaching them to a single frame to create a grotesque being. The Wizard did not miss out the opportunity to experiment this ritual first hand and aptly named the resulting creature an 'Abomination'. Needless to say, he went far beyond creating one simple 'Abomination' and developed a machine run with steam technology to mass produce the tortured freaks.

    One of this 'Abominations' is called Blight Cleaver. Hidden beneath his monstrous and brutish exterior is a cunning intelligence that allows this creature to plan tactics and stratagems, that exceed those of the common brutes that define his brethren; often reduced to running and smashing all that moves and can scream. Blight Cleaver roams the battlefield, a blob of meat planning the best way to snack upon his preys and push the battle line, as the unspeakable horror ensues in deadly silence.



    Abilities
    [​IMG]
    Cleave:

    Snack:
    Blight Cleaver joyfully feasts on an enemy hero, damaging him and healing himself for an equal amount. The enemy cannot move while being eaten. If the victim dies in the process, Blight Cleaver will permanently gain 3 points in Strength.

    Story



    Many centuries ago, there existed a great mage with an unquenchable thirst for exploring the secret arts. This caused him to venture into forbidden territories and be branded a menace by the Twin Suns Church and the Magi's Guild alike; institutions that often find themselves one against the other. Finding himself cornered in the Tomb he made his hideout, the mage cast a desperate spell that turned his body into a sphere of pure mana quickly dissipating into thin air. An abandoned obsidian construct nearby, retaining traces of necromantic magic of its initial creation, absorbed the mage’s essence over the years and finally reconstituted his consciousness within its structure.

    This nature-defying creature now serves the Forsaken as the official torturer and executor of the Wizard's enemies, acomplice of the creation of many of the creatures under the Great Conjurer's command. The Destroyer serves under the promise of a new body. Psionic annihilation is the only thing that awaits those who cross his path.

    [​IMG]
    Release Mana:
    The Destroyer uses all of his mana to unleash an energy wave around him that damages and slows every enemy it hits. The AoE depends on the amount of mana used.

Interest rates included.

    The Wizard soon took his place at the King's side with his silver tongue. But the Chancellor could see he and the Conjurer had much in common. This meant it was obvious to Tristan his new rival was lying and acting his way through a plot. At just the right moment he approched the outsider and offered him a devil's deal: he would betray his King in exchange of power and a high position under the Wizard's new rule, whom didn't consider him an equal as much as a useful pet. The deal came through, but at the cost of his sanity and image. He follows his new master with blind faith, too crazed to see the consequences of his actions.

    Story



    Among the numerous mercenary clans scattering around the Peninsula, there is a unique nameless guild operated by a single assassin, who is also the one to take care of contracted jobs. This female archer is tricky, treacherous and possesses an unrivaled marksmanship, befitting her title of the Dark Ranger. The origin of the Dark Ranger is shrouded in mystery. Some say she descended from a secret tribe of female warriors to the North that worships the gods of war, while others claim she is an assassin raised from birth and her arrows had never missed ever since she knew how to use a bow.

    Enemies of the Dark Ranger often find themselves being chased by a ghostly archer and incapacitated by spectral arrows that pierce their soul. Even if the Ranger is missing from sight, her arrow is as deadly as ever and the victims only hear of the whizzing sound before their lives are forfeited. Fighting among the undead masses for sole monetary purposes, her bow is ready to bring the holy warriors to their knees.

    This map is totally unbalance, towers kill every creep, makes the game meaningless

    Yes, thats correct. The Map is full playable but it needs time to balance all things. That's why it's still a beta will be for a longer time. Help us by giving suggestions to balance the values of towers, creeps, items and all the other things which can be balance ;)

    For any suggestions, critics or bug reports you can use our forum here.

    Best Reg.

    Review
    I'm sorry but I'm not so excited about your game (played once and get bored). I see that there is no something special. the acolyte can only build 4 towers, spell effect is not really fascinating, and about environment, hmm.. not bad but not so cool.. hero pick system is very basic.. I don't get the special thing/feature that you want to offer in this game..
    at this state, overall is 2.5/5 from me, but you know I cant rate if it is not 5..

    Hi Dalvengyr,

    first of all, thx for your feedback and the time you spend in testing our mod.

    Well, it's good for us to hear some critics to our mod. Bad critics help us to improve it. So let's discuss it a bit. For me it's interesting to know...

    1. Which game you played? 1v1/2v2...
    2. How long you played?
    3. Which Hero you choose?
    4. Which Spells you think are boring and why?

    Note: The fun begins when playing it with a min. of 3v3. Otherwise, it's boring, no question!

    Well, as i started working on this idea i wanted to follow your words...

    keep it simple and easily understandable and enjoyable

    That's what i did!
    I made a very simple hero pick system. It's an old school hero pick system from the earlier times of wc3 mapping. I loved it and that's why it's in this game.

    I decided to make a simple item system. I was pissed of complicated item system like in other mods. That's why i just created 3 shops and gave up the idea making shops with recipes or other things. I wanted to make it easy for new players and i think it's simple enough.

    For me it's interesting to get more feedback from ppl like you to improve the map.

    I was just trying to be honest, not to be mean or become a haters ;)

    you still able to improve the hero pick system, maybe by double clicking the hero, it's more advanced but more simple, first click will shows the description..

    I was using abomintation :) what I cant understand is there is a weird blue "sphere" that will slows me down when I passed it, I don't know what for is that sphere?

    Sry, but no one gives a fuck about the hero pick system. Its an AoS (partially) so that one thing that really matters is the gameplay. How about writing something about that?

    Uhm, so the map I've been making the hero for (Hellgor) is this one? Then I must review this as soon as I can to give you my own feedback.

    That was the winner of the contest.
    Note: Play the map with a min. of 3v3, better 4v4...

    Well dota is simple as fuck... its popular because of the gameplay.. not on the COOL FEATURES...

    my suggestion... to the creator... play every hero.. and be honest to yourself... do you enjoy playing the hero?.. then not... think very hard how to make your hero fun to play.. or suggest to their creators to make a more synergistic set of abilities...

    For example a Goblin Shredder is very fun to play...


    Remember... FOCUS and ONLY FOCUS on the Hero and Game Mechanics... don't bother on the system since this is not an RPG...
