[ANN] The Four Mages Plug-in Announced!

I've tortured this community long enough, and you have all been very patient, so I suppose you all deserve a little reward... or at least a teaser.

The Four Mages , a large, quest-oriented plug-in for Pillars of Garendall, has been unveiled. It is still in the works, but it is about half done and is expected to be released two or three months from now.

The Four Mages adds:
• A side storyline
• New and powerful items
• New arcane spells (now you can deal death without sapping half your mana!)
• Many new maps (currently ten, and more are coming.)
• New and tougher enemies—they eat the Guardian for lunch,
• And, if everything goes according to plan, more eye candy than I'd care to admit.

The Four Mages is ideal for the player who has beaten the Guardian and wants a bigger challenge, but also doesn't want to give up his macho character. In particular, the Conjurer class has been vastly improved upon, with new spells and magical items. Swordsmen and Rangers also have some goodies to look forward to.

For more information, or just for the screenshots I've posted there, check out the (url="http://"http://homepage.mac.com/cafall/pog/tfm.html")Four Mages Official Web Page.(/url)

Remember that with my plug-in, GameContinuer , you get to keep playing after you defeat the Guardian, folks. 🙂

Sounds really neat, Cafall, so I really look forward to it.

Just be forewarned that now you've announced it, and announced plug-ins have a tendency to fade away... 😉

That's why I waited so long to announce it... I wanted to make sure I wouldn't abandon it as long as I was in my right mind. Since it's at about that point, and since I'm working at a pretty good rate, I decided to announce the plug-in before any more people packed up and left.

I'd be more than willing to be a beta tester! My email is rieser@macnexus.org

Sounds super-spiffy. Can't wait!

I'm afraid that at the moment, I'm not accepting beta testers; I'm not finished with The Four Mages yet, and having alpha/beta testing would only slow the development process. Thank you for letting me know; when I have finished the plug-in, I'll announce on the boards and on the Four Mages web site that I'm accepting applications for potential beta testers, and you can apply at that time. However, at the moment the idea is to make the last half of the plug-in and fix the most obvious, processor-sickening bugs as I go along.

(Edit: Added the quotes.)

You need to chill. Some of those posts you just did where pointless. Ya theres little activity on this board. Yet that dosn't mean you get to go willy-nilly all over it. Try and add to the conversation other than "me too" kinda stuff. Im also deleteing some of that CHACHA trash. If your bored, go play PoG...Again. This is your warning.

A new screenshot has been added to the Four Mages webpage, the first one in which the hero is a Conjurer. So you see? My (url="http://"http://homepage.mac.com/cafall/pog/tfm.html")claims(/url) of (url="http://"http://homepage.mac.com/cafall/images/tfm03.jpg")new spells(/url) weren't just empty words. 🙂

Those of you who may have checked the Four Mages webpage a few times yesterday and this morning would not hve been able to get on. I apologize for this; I was uploading a new, revamped version of my site. Go ahead and check out the new site, (url="http://"http://homepage.mac.com/cafall/")Wolven Studios(/url). The Four Mages page is at a new URL due to the new site's structure. You can find the new Four Mages webpage (url="http://"http://homepage.mac.com/cafall/projects/tfm.html")here(/url).

Also, I think this is a good time to tell everyone that I won't be announcing many new things, such as new screenshots, in this thread anymore unless I think it's really necessary; the only things imprtant enough to be announced will be beta-testing (a long way off), and the addition of a dev log, which I will do when I can progress quickly again.

Just how many items and spells are you adding? And what kind of items are they?

For now, Penguin, (url="http://"http://homepage.mac.com/cafall/projects/tfm.html")the webpage(/url) gives all the information I feel comfortable with disclosing.
