Programming all the mod, very long journals and too much hours for the last two years only on my spare time and by myself, it's the reason for the long waiting.

Re-designing the whole line story and adding new quests and stuff.

Working, improving and fixing the new gameplay.

Working on all the game textures.

Designing new and custom scripts for NPCs and the new quests/events for the whole game.

Making experiments with some ideas I had recently for the mod.

Re-designing the whole game and levels.

Designing NPC's new scripting and programming new characters.

Testing gameplay and fixing all possible bugs.

Probably the game will have new 6 different endings, new primary and secondary quests, enough new NPCs on the levels and new shops, there is a new shop of a goblin called Shok, and a kind of rare blacksmith place with new primary character called Alessandro.

Too, too much work to do yet and I don't have any idea of when this will be finished...

Thanks to kaptenkabelsatan for his help with some writing corrections from this description.

Hi, I'm sorry if this is a stupid question or if you have already answered this but is there a download for this available somewhere? Or are you waiting for it to be finished before you decide to release it? It looks quite amazing and would love to test it out.

Hello there, the mod is in progress yet, I'm the only person working on it and recently one friend of mine joined the project as a volunteer helping with new dialogues and speech recordings, you must wait for a final release, sorry but I can't upload something not finished or full of bugs/crashes, it requires dedication and time, Arx is very special for me

Oh please don't be one of those modders that abandon their own projects. This has the potential to become one of the best mod ever made!
