The quest begins for players at level 10 and above after you have been summoned by the Greybeards in the main quest line.
A near Total Conversion for Fallout: New Vegas. Fallout: Project Brazil adds an all new story around a new player character, an adopted resident of Vault 18, embarking on a quest to a hidden complex in the ruins of Los Angeles. Along the way you'll discover a pitched battle between the Survivalist Army, the New California Republic, and The Super Mutants, which shapes the politics and events leading to the NCR's invasion of the Mojave. The story takes place in 2260 - many years before the "Courier" awakes in New Vegas, while the Enclave struggles to rise again on the West Coast.
A modification set in the universe of George R. R Martins "A Song of Ice and Fire". Also known as "Game of Thrones". "A Clash of Kings" features eighteen unique factions, each with their own troops, distinct cultures and custom settlements, as well as a "secret" emerging faction.
The mod takes its name from the first book in the series, as well as the “game” of plots and politics the ambitious and hopeful are said to be playing in their struggles for supremacy. Currently players are able to choose to play from any start date in the 300 years from before the Aegon's Conquest to the beginning of the fourth book (A Feast for Crows). Notable new features to mention; A new dueling engine so that lords may fight each other in personal combat on (or off) the battlefield; An all-new method for personal interaction between characters; Pets that (sometimes greatly) aid characters in battle; And a host of less significant (but no less important) features that together help create a solid and serious effort at bringing Westeros to life for gamers.

In Underhell, you play as Jake Hawkfield, a Special Weapons and Tactics officer who recently married and moved in with his wife.

Along with changes to how the game handles, the Project Reality team has been introducing British, Insurgent, IDF forces, Canadian, and Russian factions, plus a number of community assisted factions are currently in the works to introduce even more factions to the virtual battlefields. This is the real deal.
Everything in Brutal Doom is extremely intense. Everything sounds louder, looks bigger, moves faster, and hits harder. The camera shakes every time something explodes near you. Enemies are harder and smarter, and weapons and explosions are loud. Brütal Doom will make the good an old Doom have a new and fresh look. It will give you a reason to play all the Ultimate Doom, Doom 2, and Final Doom levels again.

I cannot remember when I have had so much fun in a multiplayer game. This seriously gives AAA titles a run for their money. I'd rather be playing this than Battlefield 4 or COD Ghosts, that's for sure.
If you are a fan of mass carnage and huge multiplayer explosive action, then you do a huge disservice to yourself by not playing this game.
I'll see you in Panau!
