Diabolic Studios has released the first beta release of the Dragonia II mod today.
In this first release, there have been many units buildings, wonders, and more added to Civilization IV: Beyond the Sword to create a rich fantasy environment. Dragonia II has 25 civilizations and 40 leaders to choose from. These civilzations range from the evil Black Orcs to the high elves of Kalagori and the religious Kingdom of Paladorn. The leaders of these civilizations have been given alignments ranging from good to neutral to evil. These aligments will be dynamic, and so can change over time based on choices that the player makes. The leader's alignment will also have an effect on their relationship with other leaders...and so an evilly aligned leader will not be very friendly to a good aligned leader.
Dragonia II also features an updated tech tree featuring about 115 technologies. Most of these advances will be familiar to players of the first Dragonia, but some of the old advances have been removed, and others added. This revised tree gives the player access to the new faiths of Dragonia (Tel'Seldarine, Dark Seldarine, Solanism, Nerullicism, Morndinsamman, Eye of Gruumsh, Heironeanism, and Hextorianism) powerful magics, and strong troops.
The Dragonia II mod is now available for download at Moddb, as well as from Gameflood. This release is an early beta version of the mod, and as such, not all features have been completed, and there will be bugs.
