Dawn Of Darkness Ward Six 1999

This is a nice Fantasy conversion for Quake 2 with RPG elements. It was supposed to be a commercial addon but was cancelled. The makers, however, released the finished levels as freeware. takes place in a long vanished world of mighty forgotten empires and magic. It is the tale of a once revered Lucitanian warlord, Roarke The Merciless, caught between his obligations to his family, his empire and his honor. You have been imprisoned in the captured Manawyd monastary by an army from the Cheitan Empire who have attacked the village you have lived in. Roarke is an elite fighter, if perhaps a little out of practice since his days as one of Lucitan's greatest warlords. You begin playing armed with only the dagger Roarke had hidden in his boot, you must escape and find Sylmaril. How you do this is up to you. The game is played with basically the most of the same controls as Quake 2, except for the new commands and items bindings added. It has all-new weapons, bad guys, maps, textures, models, etc. There is even a new inventory system, and a character dialogue system where you can talk to anyone. Weapons include a dagger and sword which you use by attacking while moving the mouse in the direction you wish to swing. Each weapon also has an alternate attack mode which do things like punch, block, etc. You can also get a bow, crossbow, arrows (flaming and exploding too), pistol, blunderbuss, even a shovel. Some weapons have magical properties, like the sword which goes into Bloodlust mode when you're particularily lethal, and you can decapitate enemies. There are also items like healing potions, a torch to light up dark areas, and a shovel to uncover hidden items. The new enemies are different types of soldiers, an occasional demonic creature, nonviolent NPCs that you can interact with and a really tough end boss. There are 4 really large and good-looking levels with nice details and atmosphere.
