2.76 Version launched!

"By far the greatest version yet!", said Todd Howard*

If AAA Fallout 76 can go live with known bugs, then I am dedicating this build in the spirit of that game! (Although I hope we fare better here!)

You didn't realise you were waiting for it, but a new version is available!


Faster Furious Fights!
Super Satisfying 'Sploring!

  • Slows down exploration and adds shadows to unexplored parts of map (thanks to TheoAllen script)
  • Combat now allows champions to defend blows (thanks to Galv script)
  • And the prologue and quests now sit in a nicer menu structure.
  • Feels more quest-y now, and map camera adds a sleeker scroll-effect (thanks to Tsukihime)
  • About 132% better gameplay, and slightly more stuff to do - and ALSO now 73 playable characters (try upstairs at the Tavern)


I hope you enjoy it, some end-of-game balancing I want to do, but wanted to get a version out as it is been TOO long.

Thanks again for all the kind words. Keep ANY words coming as it all helps make the game YOU want.

*well, he DID say it. Maybe not about this game but it was indeed said.

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!

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.
