Official Patch 2.0 of Rise of the Mod! Balance changes, and big sweeping changes to the Elven archer line and griffin line.
Intro! Jackie!! Come, give Uncle a hug!
Hello! I've been playing Disciples since I was a wee lad barely in Elementary School (almost 20 years ago ._.). I was drawn in by the darker setting, beautiful art and fantastic music (I still hum the battle themes in the shower sometimes). I originally started this mod in an attempt to make Disciples 2 more like it's predecessor, Sacred Lands, but over time that idea changed into something completely different.
With some completely revamped units, new leader upgrades, spellbook makeovers and some balance changes, this mod should keep things fresh and exciting.
Requirements/Recommended/Installation! This is how I spray for bugs!
To install the mod, simply replace the folders in your Disciples directory with the folders in the zip files. You will only need to download the most recent patch, as this will have all the necessary files for running the mod.
The Mod is compatible with the GoG version of Disciples II: Rise of the Elves as well as the Disciples II: Rise of the Elves Gold CD version (if you still have that ancient relic, like I do). I have tested it with both these versions and it works, but I cannot guarantee it will run with any other version of the game, though it should be fine.
!!! Backup your original Globals folder before replacing it with my mod !!!
Changes! Never question the inscriptions!
All experience requirements have been modified (mostly reduced for neutrals, but increased for level 3+ units)
Chance to hit has been reduced across the board (mostly down to 75% from 80%)
Most units no longer receive chance to hit upon level ups
Difficulty settings have been adjusted; enemy AI now have more money at each difficulty level (this allows them to actually purchase their upgrade buildings more often, so you wont see the green plus sign as much)
High tier building costs have been reduced
Units with secondary damage (ex. Poison) have had their level up damage amounts normalized (ex. Imperial Assassin no longer receives 6/6 damage upon level up, but rather 4/4, or 10% of 60/20, as all other units do)
All spellbooks have been tweaked or altered (ex. Tangle is now a level 2 spell, and reduces movement by 50% instead of 30%)
All level 3+ spell research costs have been reduced
A lot of flavor text and weapon names were changed/added. Check 'em out ;)
Warrior Lords are the only lords who receive Weapon Master, and their leaders can get it at level 2

One more thing! I also brought the antidotes that did -not- work!
THERE WAS A KNOWN ISSUE THAT HAS BEEN RESOLVED. SIMPLY DOWNLOAD THE MOST RECENT VERSION OF THE MOD AND OVERWRITE THE SCENS FOLDER IN YOUR RISE OF THE ELVES DIRECTORY.
One MORE thing! Never. Mock. The cookie.
I've listed off everything I could remember that I've changed with my mod. I've been playing it for so long that sometimes I forget what was in the original game and what I introduced, so if there are any things left out, forgive me.
So, try it out! Have fun! Good luck! Conquer! Get killed! Rage! Load Auto-Save! Play more! Order a pizza! Say "Hey this is a pretty cool mod! But I miss the Werewolf, Titan, Fiend and Yeti" Then keep playing it. Then watch some Jackie Chan Adventures. Why? I don't know.
ONE MORE THING! See? What have we learned?
If enough people enjoy this mod I might make some tweaks to it based on popular recommendations.
