A story, that happened 10 years before the unnamed hero
was thrown into the mining colony.


Myrtana, the Vaduz Island, not long before the creation of magic barrier and not long after the beginning of war with orcs. Thanks to the fate, leading a rather monotonous life, Lars becomes a participant in the event that changes everything. In mysterious circumstances, twelve of the most powerful mages of the kingdom led by famous Grandmaster of Fire, Xardas, arrive on the island. No one knows, what they are doing there. The only thing that is known is that soon they plan to continue their journey.


Lars, after helping the mages, will receive a proposition to travel with them to the Khorinis Island. Wizards are going to create there a magic barrier to isolate prisoners from the outside world,… at least that’'s what they say. Our hero will receive different tasks (not only from the mages), which may be a real challenge for a player.

Character and the world

Lars is a young man, who with his father (a former soldier of royal army), has a small blacksmith shop near the city of Vaduz. His father, apart from teaching him the profession, helps him in combat skills. His dream is that his son will find some peaceful job and that he won’t take part in any battles.

He himself, as a veteran of wars with orcs, doesn’t deal well with the trauma. After smallpox and death of his wife he drinks a lot getting himself in more trouble. However, as it appears – the worst is yet to come...

Mages arrive on the island and after you fulfill a task given by them, they offer you collaboration and going with them on the Khorinis Island. What will we find there? The old harbor known from Gothic 2 will be unrecognizable. Dozens moored ships, sailors, traders, knights, prisoners and travelers will fill the whole harbor neighborhood. Apart from that, the whole city will be refreshed and extended. The Khorinis Island itself will also look different: all burned down houses and destroyed constructions will look as new, there will be more roads, a few times more people, more households, inns and other interesting objects.

The Valley of Mines also will look differently. The Old Camp, once in ruin, now will look as brand new, mountain fortress and collapsed mines will be full of life. There will be a few mines and not only in the Valley of Mines, but also on Khorinis. Of course, acces to the Valley of Mines will be restricted, not anyone will be able to enter. Safe conduct pass will be needed.

The rest will be told by screenshots.

Hi and thanks for the feedback! Unfortunately gothic is not popular in Greece, most people there are more interested in the traditional american industry of games instead of the European. That is why we do not have a community for modding etc. I admire the Polish community of gothic they are very strong and devoted( even stronger than German) and they have a great variety and well made mods. And unfortunately for not German or Polish speakers like me we need english translations in order to play mods and there are overly few mods with english subs :(

Then you and me are the exception m8 cause im mostly playing european games.Gothic is my all time favourite fantasy series followed closely by the witcher series.There's nothing compared to gothic nowadays.Unique storyline with great characters,superb music and atmosphere,excellent gameplay with lots of experimentation,making this game one of a kind in its field.As for the part that there's no modding community here well its true.There's no video gaming industry in general and its a shame.

Yes it came out with English subtitles, and in fact i bought it many years ago(decade) for an old greek pc magazine "pc master gold" which had the full gothic 1 and the demo of gothic 2 . Then was the first time i learned about gothic(great moments). And something interesting to mention that in the cover box of the cd there were some images eg one unknown armor, the nameless fighting a mage near the tower of the undead(beach) and that blond woman and i always wondered why they weren't in the game. Now i think that they could have been in the addon...

Those are great discoveries well done!!! You the "History of Khorinis" team-developers deserve a prize from Piranha Bytes for making those videos...Those news about the cancelled addon drives me crazy. I am a true fan of the gothic series and i feel i missed a great part of gothic
This "JoWooD" is responsible for all of this. Because of it they cancelled the addon, because of it gothic 3 was full of bugs and incomplete, because of it they made the addon "forsaken gods" which it is not even a real game!!! Because of it they made gothic 4 which is a disaster for gothic series and imo it is a spinn-off and not a real gothic game. JoWooD is responsible for all this evil!!!
They had bad management they were noobs and they wrongly persuaded Piranha Bytes to rush the games so the cancelled addons and the bad gothic 3 and forsaken gods.

Gothic 4 ??? Not Piranha Bytes, not Gothic. Yes JoWooD, yes complete disaster.

Piranha Bytes was the initial company of the developing off gothic 1 and Piranha Bytes should remain.Gothic 2 was a success but who knows? Without JoWood it could be better... And what is the fate of JoWooD? Bankrupted
What is the fate of Piranha Bytes? They continue developing true rpgs like risen, elex etc...

Thanks, we appreciate your words! About issue of the addon to Gothic 1 (Gothic Sequel), you have to know that it was a MUTUAL decision (both - Pirania&JoWood;). Because both sides wanted 'something new', and something bigger (not just same, knowed mining colony). Piranha itself was a bit fed up about repeating similar theme with Slepper, on the same ground. But you're right, of course - surely this story would also be awesome;)
Btw. I'm very interested - how much Gothic was popular in Greece?
