v2.01 officially released

Wanted to compile the changes since 2.00 release, even though this is documented in the discussions already:
- new artwork by Hazel Hawkins
- inclusion of Jeroen Tel track 'Firing Up'
- fix for HUD to highlight low HP status in-battle
- rebalance of combat to remove insta-kills
- fix a couple of on-map bugs
- fix a config bug in weapons and items.

thanks again!

After six months of rework, it is finally here:

The controls, the old-combat system, the old ending.
Please, try the new version: keen to know if it is now better.
Your feedback has made me radically redesign this.

New combat: action-turn-based! Your party dynamic means combat can happen in so many new and exciting ways.
Larger Tavern: go there to play the Tutorial now. And it's more quest-y.
Controls: arrow keys, 'Enter', 'A', 'Esc' - that's it. Imagine that!
Improved menus, use arrow keys to rotate through party.
Lots of new extras: inventory handling, more party choices, scoring system
Rebalanced - but am keen to know what you all think.
More great music from more wonderful artists!
Even more unique artwork, (as it's still me making it).

Thanks to everyone who has continued to show support - you are bound to be in the credits somewhere!

So, here we go again... (why do I do this to myself?)

About This Game


You were not the chosen one.

Many years ago a maelstrom of Chaos was summoned atop Mount Anaias, turning the entire realm to ash.
Many champions were called to fight as an enraged beast-army rampaged the lands.
Champions arrived with powerful weapons, magickal artefacts and divine secrets - all perished.

You are Theron, student to the departed Grey Lord.

During the cataclysm, the Grey Lord protected your soul, even though he could not save your body.
Only now has the Grey Lord's spirit been able to approach you and offer you the power to embark on an epic quest.
Granted with the power to raise four lost champions, your assembled team must find the fabled Firestaff and defeat Lord Chaos.

On the way, you will learn as much of the Champions as you will of the Dungeon Master.

Seek balance.
Bring the world back to life.
