While you were battling the evil forces of D'Sparil, the other Serpent Riders were busy sowing the seeds of destruction in other dimensions. One such dimension is the decaying world where Hexen takes place. A world littered with the mangled corpses of nonbelievers and inhabited by the undead followers that executed them. Only three humans &endash; a warrior, a mage and a cleric &endash; have escaped the leaders' vicious spell. Now these brave souls have sworn to crush the evil regime that threatens to destroy the world forever. Separated upon entering the mystical portal, the three are forced to attempt on their own what they had hoped to do together: find Korax's stronghold, destroy him and restore order in the physical world.
A large, atmospheric single-player Hexen map for GZDoom
Lepistus is a large, atmospheric Hexen map for GZDoom (tested with v4.0).
You must find a way into the walled town of Lepistus and ring its sacred bell. There are books in the level you can interact with to learn more. You can also interact with crystal balls to look through them. Crouching is allowed, and in fact required to progress at one point.
The progression isn't too difficult in my opinion, but there is a walkthrough at the bottom of the text file in case you really need it.
There is plenty of new content along with the classic Hexen action, with a few new monsters, a new weapon for each class (slot 4), and an entire new class to play as, the Ranger. There are also a couple little changes to vanilla actors. Details can be found in txt file. Or you could just play and be surprised!
The framerate in some areas may suffer on lower-power computers due to the amount of visible sectors & 3d floors. I recommend playing without dynamic lights, not only for performance concerns, but because I designed the map without them on and put a good amount of care into sector lighting.
