A thought provoking Plot
We have slaved away at creating an amazing plot spanning 9 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.
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.
Argonaut : scar coding, cutscenes, dialogs
Jaguar-Lord : mapping, UI modding, environment
credit list : in progress.
hello followers and community brothers,
Although i intended to make a first release of Darkness Within for December this year it seems that once more we are enduring another crisis.
My partner Argonaut has been remaining silent and missing (not giving any news nor visiting our forums) since more than a month now.
We have suffered such an break and it lasted for months, so with more than a month (in fact nearly 2) without any significant work done, a December release is impossible, and i wont release an incomplete first part of the campaign whatever people say. it would be like a book without the last chapter !! no way !
Our beta testers have done a great job and really helped us, and believe me debugging campaign is very frustrating (ask Gunfood, Godlike_power and Gambit....) and respect of their hard work commands me to keep going.
So, i decided to start coding the last of book One mission by myself and postpone any release until it is completed, it will take some time before completion.
if a skilled scar coder is ready to replace Argonaut and take the coding lead he is more than welcome.
Remember that this project needs dedication, passion and a team spirit, it is really something that can be exhausting, that what campaign modding truly is.
Darkness Within is something very unique in the DoW scene and i do believe, given how the mods bounce us in the top 100 of mods at modDb popularity ladder each time i release a important news that interest is not what we are lacking.
what i'm missing now is manpower and a real dev team that can propel this mod toward a public release.
thanks for you support and patience, and please accept my apologies for any frustration resulting from this delay.
