v3.4

Introduction / Author's word

Seth's Reign is a single player RPG by APproject. Map's story is based on an interpretation of The Legend of Osiris myth. Map is fully voice acted by 5 voice actors, it also contain wonderful ambient egyptish music, up to 5 tracks in total. Another features of note: many sound effects, up to 300 custom units, 18 custom hero spells and a possibility of 729 spell combinations, up tp 250 custom doodads, approximately 80 custom items and 350 custom abilities.

Gameplay may be challenging as it would require a lot of insight and effort to spot various things, such as hidden artifacts. There are two difficulty levels - normal and advanced. It is rather difficult game, so even normal mode might be challenging for some players as there are no easy walkthrough selection. Advanced mode may be harder, as enemies becomes way stronger, but advanced mode offers not only difficulty increasement, but also unlocks 1/3 of possible hero spells, providing gameplay variations.

I was planning to protect it, but I decided not to, I see no point in that considering it can be unprotected anytime. Creation of this map lasted nearly 5 months. (2012-07-11 - 2012-11-30)

Map would not be updated with new stuff, I may only fix bugs and change some things that are considered unacceptable or buggy. There might be some minor bugs that might be exploited on the occasion, I am willing to fix major ones if it is discovered. Map contains a lot of leaks, but it doesn't matter, since map is Single Player and leaks are not being noticed at all. As far as I have played, I didn't face any fatal errors and I hope there will be none. There are some transmissions with considered egyptish text, it is not egyptish, it is only an interpretation of text. As map is not protected, do with it whatever you wish, but I recommend playing map absent editing and cheating, I leave it to player's conscience.

Storyline

Story is the base of Legend of Osiris myth, basically gameplay follows its algorithm.

Here it is fully written one version of this myth that I tried to follow while making the map.

The Legend of Osiris Myth
Oh my brothers and my sisters, gather around me that I may tell the tale of the Before-Time, of the Golden Age when the gods walked upon the earth with us. Know then that in those ancient days, long before even the grandfather of our Pharaoh's grandfather was born, Osiris the great-grandson of Ra sat upon the throne of the gods, ruling over the living world as Ra did over the gods. He was the first Pharaoh, and his Queen, Isis, was the first Queen. They ruled for many ages together, for the world was still young and Grandmother Death was not as harsh as she is now.

His ways were just and upright, he made sure that Maat remained in balance, that the law was kept. And so Maat smiled upon the world. All peoples praised Osiris and Isis, and peace reigned over all, for this was the Golden Age.

Yet there was trouble. Proud Set, noble Set, the brother of Osiris, he who defended the Sun Boat from Apep the Destroyer, was unsettled in his heart. He coveted the throne of Osiris. He coveted Isis. He coveted the power over the living world and he desired to take it from his brother. In his dark mind he conceived of a plot to kill Osiris and take all from him. He built a box and inscribed it with wicked magic that would chain anyone who entered it from escaping.

Set took the box to the great feast of the gods. He waited until Osiris had made himself drunk on much beer, then challenged Osiris to a contest of strength. Each one in turn would enter the box, and attempt, through sheer strength, to break it open. Osiris, sure in his power yet feeble in mind because of his drink, entered the box. Set quickly poured molten lead into the box. Osiris tried to escape, but the wicked magic held him bound and he died. Set then picked up the box and hurled it into the Nile where it floated away.

Set claimed the throne of Osiris for himself and demanded that Isis be his Queen. None of the other gods dared to stand against him, for he had killed Osiris and could easily do the same to them. Great Ra turned his head aside and mourned, he did not stand against Set.

This was the dark time. Set was everything his brother was not. He was cruel and unkind, caring not for the balance of Maat, or for us, the children of the gods. War divided Egypt, and all was lawless while Set ruled. In vain our people cried to Ra, but his heart was hardened by grief, and he would not listen.

Only Isis, blessed Isis, remembered us. Only she was unafraid of Set. She searched all of the Nile for the box containing her beloved husband. Finally she found it, lodged in a tamarisk bush that had turned into a mighty tree, for the power of Osiris still was in him, though he lay dead. She tore open the box and wept over the lifeless body of Osiris. She carried the box back to Egypt and placed it in the house of the gods. She changed herself into a bird and flew about his body, singing a song of mourning. Then she perched upon him and cast a spell. The spirit of dead Osiris entered her and she did conceive and bear a son whose destiny it would be to avenge his father. She called the child Horus, and hid him on an island far away from the gaze of his uncle Set.

She then went to Thoth, wise Thoth, who knows all secrets, and implored his help. She asked him for magic that could bring Osiris back to life. Thoth, lord of knowledge, who brought himself into being by speaking his name, searched through his magic. He knew that Osiris' spirit had departed his body and was lost. To restore Osiris, Thoth had to remake him so that his spirit would recognize him and rejoin. Thoth and Isis together created the Ritual of Life, that which allows us to live forever when we die. But before Thoth could work the magic, cruel Set discovered them. He stole the body of Osiris and tore it into many pieces, scattering them throughout Egypt. He was sure that Osiris would never be reborn.

Yet Isis would not despair. She implored the help of her sister Nephthys, kind Nephthys, to guide her and help her find the pieces of Osiris. Long did they search, bringing each piece to Thoth that he might work magic upon it. When all the pieces were together, Thoth went to Anubis, lord of the dead. Anubis sewed the pieces back together, washed the entrails of Osiris, embalmed him wrapped him in linen, and cast the Ritual of Life. When Osiris' mouth was opened, his spirit reentered him and he lived again.

Yet nothing that has died, not even a god, may dwell in the land of the living. Osiris went to Duat, the abode of the dead. Anubis yielded the throne to him and he became the lord of the dead. There he stands in judgment over the souls of the dead. He commends the just to the Blessed Land, but the wicked he condemns to be devoured by Ammit.
When Set heard that Osiris lived again he was wroth, but his anger waned, for he knew that Osiris could never return to the land of the living. Without Osiris, Set believed he would sit on the throne of the gods for all time. Yet on his island, Horus, the son of Osiris and Isis, grew to manhood and strength. Set sent many serpents and demons to kill Horus, but he defeated them. When he was ready, his mother Isis gave him great magic to use against Set, and Thoth gave him a magic knife.

Horus sought out Set and challenged him for the throne. Set and Horus fought for many days, but in the end Horus defeated Set and castrated him. But Horus, merciful Horus, would not kill Set, for to spill the blood of his uncle would make him no better than he. Set maintained his claim to the throne, and Horus lay claim himself as the son of Osiris. The gods began to fight amongst another, those who supported Horus and those who supported Set. Banebdjetet leaped into the middle and demanded that the gods end this struggle peacefully or Maat would be imbalanced further. He told the gods to seek the council of Neith. Neith, warlike though wise in council, told them that Horus was the rightful heir to the throne. Horus cast Set into the darkness where he lives to this day.

And so it is that Horus watches over us while we live, and gives guidance to the Pharaoh while he lives, and his father Osiris watches over us in the next life. So it is that the gods are at peace. So it is that Set, wicked Set, eternally strives for revenge, battling Horus at every turn. When Horus wins, Maat is upheld and the world is at peace. When Set wins, the world is in turmoil. But we know that dark times do not last forever, and the bright rays of Horus will shine over us again. In the last days, Horus and Set will fight one last time for the world. Horus will defeat Set forever, and Osiris will be able to return to this world. On that day, the Day of Awakening, all the tombs shall open and the just dead shall live again as we do, and all sorrow shall pass away forever.

    Been waiting so long will test today and give you a review back

    EDIT: I found a glitch when playing, when the Giant Snake started attacking me, I keep dragging it back with stun, and the soldier killed it for me.

    Also everything chases you forever, and the Tomb Spellweaver (I think its called) have no health bar

    Could it be true? Seth's Reign has been released? I still haven't played it but any RPG with voice acting is something worth playing. I will test as soon as I can!

    I love your project. Even the details in here, plus the credits, are so well made. It may be alot to read, but the way you put it make it seem subtle and easy to read. ;) Hope I get to fully test the whole game straight, right after my last day exam on next Tuesday. :D I'll make sure to promote it on my fanpage as well. ;)

    Full review coming after I've played through it fully (which won't be before end of exams). Small bug report - there's a path blocker missing on the upper left corner of the corridor and the first worm-from-a-hole hall. Can't screenshoot it right now, though.

    It is good, I wanted it to be like that, you used game mechanics to overcome difficulties.
    Yes, guard distance is infinite, they may chase you forever if you only run off.
    It do have health bar, except that for some reason, perhaps because of model itself, the bar is up high over units head, higher than normally is.
    Ohh, yes, thanks for the report, I may update it with a fix. I could find only one gap at the worm hole.


    Thank you guys for the support. :)

    It must have been near the city, but I will increase invulnerability gap after teleportation that drives all aggressors back to their positions. Now it was 0.1 second interval, perhaps it didn't work out, now I set it to 0.5 and I tested it, serpent do not follow now. Will be in next update.
    You gathered 25 gems until the tomb which is impossble or you dealt over 3000 damage, or someone else dealt 3000 to you, this way you get defeated, you couldn't do it without cheating, meaning that you possibly cheated.

    Then I don't understand how you get the defeat condition. There are only 4 ways to get defeated:
    1. Atemu dies.
    2. Horus dies.
    3. You acquire 25 gems or more.
    4. You / NPC deal damage over 3000.

    There are no more conditions. Could you please describe your situation in details? When, how, where?

    That's weird, I cannot recall such lightning, now I am curious.
    Yes, easiest way would be to create an album of yours, upload picture from PC, then paste URL at Insert Image option here. Or you can use sites such as imageshack.us
    I see. I am not much of a modeler though. If you are willing to fix it, I would appreciate your effort.
