a linear campaign for Dawn of War Dark Crusade

New Linear Campaign UI
The mod features a new UI system capable of bypassing the metamap, and hence allowing you to play a linear campaign in DoW. We are designing a multi branched scenario and custom dlls to create a unique linear campaign manager. this allow us to track key event and scenario choice made by the player and to store them for future missions. It also allos the mod to open and close scenarios path unfolding on several maps.
Choose your way and consider every action consequence before any move, the Emperor eye is on you and the only light in the darkness is your faith in Him.

Play as AS and ID forces!
A new seamless army-switch ability will be present, allowing you to control multiple armies at once…those being the AS and ID mod forces. Like large battles? You’re going to love this.

A thought provoking Plot
We have slaved away at creating an amazing plot spanning 12 missions that is both engrossing and is true to fluff. Unfortunately i wont be giving anything away about the plot; you will only find the details out when this is released and you're playing it! However, let me introduce some of our main characters:

Lord Inquisitor Uther Harme:
A recently elevated Lord Inquisitor of the Ordo Hereticus, Uther has served the Inquisition for over a century. He is a staunch puritan and is dedicated to the pursuit of his Thorian ideals and objectives. He is well-respected among his peers, and his clear and keen mind has foiled many a traitor and a heretic.

Canoness Commander Alona:
Orphaned at an early age, Alona entered the service of the Adeptus Ministorum early in her childhood. However, it was not until her actions during the Heresies of Garius that she distinguished herself by slaying a group of armed marauders threatening her abbey with little more than her faith and a blunt object. Her actions earned her the esteem of the Ecclesiarchy and the interest of the Adepta Sororitas, eventually culminating into her initiation into the Order of the Sacred Rose. She has distinguished herself throughout roughly a century of service to the Ecclesiarchy, eventually rising to the rank of Canonness Commander. She currently commands the Commandery of her Order situated on the holy Shrine World of Gamede III.

Lord Inquisitor Selenis Artime:
Lord Inquisitor Selenis has persecuted innumerable deviants and heretics during her long and glorious service in the Ordo Malleus. However, the work of a Daemonhunter is accompanied by great perils to mind and body, and even the most experiences of Inquisitors have fallen to dark temptation. Questions and doubts concerning her activities have been raised in some circles of her colleagues in the past, but her unimpeachable record of service, influence, and the general lack of any substantive evidence mean that few Inquisitors take such things seriously. Despite this, a few agents of the Inquisition still doubt the purity of her distinguished record in the service of the Inquisition and the wholesomeness of her methods.

Hereticus Terminus

I'm sorry to announce that the Darkness Within Campaign Project is dead and locked for an undetermined time.

The reasons that motivated this decision are multiple but among them the lack of solid and continuous communication between core members and the lack of reliability from our modelers have been decisive.

i do not wish than anything belonging to this project to be distributed and shared among the community,
even if i know that my will won’t be respected to the letter i asked you guys to try and keep this protected and hidden away from modding predators as much as possible.

A very special thanks to:

Argonaut:who made all this scar and gave a lot of blood and sweat for this project. i have been missing you for too long to keep the modding flame burning in the darkness. All words have already been said. i'll sit one day at your table and ask for some real food.

Jones1979 : SPASIBA ! for your support and invaluable help in the darkest times. if there is a relationship that came close to a real one, this is it !
i really enjoyed your company and presence here. i'm in debt.
Transmit my respect and apologies to the Russian community.

Gambit: yeah man! What a ride! i do liked your way of doing things and your ideas,
we had great and enjoyable conversations and you contributed some precious gems to our project. The daemon mod was a great adventure and you offered me the opportunity to give the best of myself.

Chiu ChunLing : bow to a master of code, very big thanks to you for your Masterclass Scar coding !
Thanks to you we were able to add a strong RPG flavor in DoW. it was a real pleasure to work with you.

Gunfood : if ever there is someone more reliable than you please someone introduce him to me.
You are strong loyal and trustful beta tester, if any project is looking for beta testing handle it to Gunfood.i hope you enjoyed doing all this for Darkness Within. I'm sorry that this project took all of your free time for such a result.

Dark40k: for your precious tools and useful advices, merci du fond du coeur.

i do not forget anybody, all those who contributed to Darkness Within know what they have done for it be it positive or negative. Thanks to all that have supported it during all those years.

It's a shame to see this long-awaited mod die out. It was unique too, being the only real singleplayer addon. On a more positive note, this means you can invest more time into the other mods, right? They could always use your talent(s).

I saw on Forums Relic News that this mod is for Dawn of War Soulstorm as well. Is this true?

as we are speaking, there's nothing that prevent it to be adapted to Soulstorm. it should be compatible with SS, depends on how we can enable linear manager in SS.
so i won't say it is not possible , but it will depend on the workload needed to adapt it, it is technically doable.
