"A fantasy d20-themed dungeon crawler", to quote DarkGod's comment. Inspired by Incursion by Julian Mensch. Made available under Open Game License. This is a non-profit fan project. No money is made. There are currently only two people working on the mod. However, we have released several beta versions so far.

Because of other demands on my time (namely, writing an MA thesis), the next beta will arrive after 6th May at the earliest. I will do my best to release as soon as possible because the changelog is getting pretty large!

The good news is that there is a lot of bugfixes, cosmetic improvements and content coming - possibly enough to skip beta 7.5 and jump straight to beta 8!

And now, a sneak peek at the current changelog:

Yet another Incursion refugee here. Glad to see somebody taking up the banner, especially with a tileset instead of ASCII.

Not to play backseat dev here or anything, but if I could make a couple suggestions... don't put any sort of 'magic find' stat in the game. It encourages players to use gimped gear. Also, bring back the Weavecraft magic specialization from Incursion - the one that combines summoning and teleportation spells.

And please, please bring back the Alienist prestige class as well. :)

I am not sure, what do you mean by 'magic find'?

The weavecraft specialization was great, noting it down to include in the future. Same goes for the Alienist.

And I'm sorry it's taken me so long to reply.

My feelings exactly. I was so sad when I saw Incursion is dead, that's why I started this project.
