Hearkenwold in development

Postby Dorateen » Sun Jan 03, 2021 4:11 pm

For those not familiar, Hearkenwold is a module I have been working on for several years in another toolset. The IceBlink engine is a similar top-down, turn-based adventure creation kit. When Knights of the Chalice 2 was released last summer, I decided to rebuild the project in the KotC2 module editor. Now several months later, I am nearing the final stages of this conversion.

Hearkenwold is an open world campaign, inspired by games like Pool of Radiance, Dark Sun, Might & Magic and Wizardry 7. Thus, there is some shared lineage with Knights of the Chalice. It aims to present a classic party based Dungeons & Dragons type adventure with a focus on exploration and tactical combat.

Here are a few screenshots of some of the work I have done so far:

And I recently posted a video to show the module in progress, featuring some basic interactions and combat:

The tentative schedule I have to release the module is by the end of March.

I posted a new video of the Hearkenwold in the KotC 2 engine. I'm still on track to finish by the end of March and release the module.

In this scenario, the party picks a fight with a rival adventuring group and things get messy.

Thank you, BlueSalamander. Your module editor has been great fun to work with. If I am lucky, I should be able to finish by the beginning of April. Here are a few more screens of the most recent progress:

Awesome, thank you! From some of the module's graphics, I get a strong 'Avernum' RPG vibe. 8-)
