Default Black Moon Chr. mod

Hi,

I've been busy for a while with a mod based on the french comics "Les chroniques de la lune noire - Black Moon Chronicles", a part of this mod is already downloadable (the knights of the Light) but the rest is still work in progress.

You can check a few screenshots at:

http://www.dom2mod.i8.com/photo.html

A few words about goal and status.

GOAL: I'd like to end up with two "packages".
Package 1 - "Black Moon Armies" or something like that: 7 new nations, with 7 dm files independent from one another - so that you can use all of them together or any combination you like with the pretender you like. The nations are Knights of the Light, Empire, Black Moon, Knights of Justice, elves, dwarfs and Tharque Empire.
Package 2 - "Black Moon Scenario", 1 big dm file + map file + map tga. No freedom for you here - you load the dm and map, and yoou get a scenario with all the nations + predefined pretenders + predefined starting locations and independents. Of course you can always edit both the dm and map file to change whatever you like - that's the nice thing about modding.

STATUS: here a "finished" means "you can play with it", but still has to be playtested and tuned, and a lot of options added as soon as they become moddable (heroes, capital only units, and so on)
Knights of the Light: finished
Knights of Justice: finished
Empire: finished (more or less)
Black Moon: halfway
Dwarfs: finished
Elves: only dm file
Tharque: only dm file

That's it for now - talk to you soon

This is just getting better and better. Thank you, sube.
Edit:
The pics look great. The dwarves are the best I've seen so far for this game!
Having tried to pixel a few sprites myself, I just have to stare in admiration at your charging horses!
The Knights of Justice look very promising, though the color seem a bit "intense". But that is only a weeny, tiny gripe.

It seems you have put much effort into these mods. Keep it up .

If you need someone to beta test the new armies, I'm your man

Very nice mod ... given that I happened to play AD&D with F Marcela-Froideval some 20 years ago, that's fond memories to me ! (he is the Black Moon author : the whole saga came from one of his AD&D character from that time, Whismerhill ... ! )

Can't wait to play the mod !

So maybe you can give us some information on how the story will continue? I hate it to wait such a long time for the next volume...

Huh, unfortunately no... First that's from *20 years* ago , and second the story doesn't mimic the RPG character history, it's just inspired by it ...
