heXen:Edge of Chaos will be a new and free game, based on the original Hexen game which was developed by id Software and Raven Software. Edge of Chaos is being developed by a team of fans who have always loved the original Hexen since it came out. In fact, most of us spent countless hours with the entire series. When id Software released Doom3, we immediately saw immense potential in the engine itself; the 'Hell' maps gave us the inspiration to make a hack-and-slash game based, primarily, on the original Hexen.

We can imagine the state of shock that Hexen fans have been in when they did not see a word mentioned about Korax on our website or in our mod profile. All I can say is that you have me to blame for that. The description of the mod in the introduction page of our current website is simply not up to date nor complete enough. That's why we're making this post to rectify the situation.

Korax's legacy will indeed play an important role in the game, eventhough it is a small part to play. The game takes place about 50 years after the storyline in Hexen 1 ended (as opposed to 5 years as mentioned in our introduction page) and is (in part) about the direct ascendants of Parias (the Cleric) named Salius and Peagus.

From the journals of Roden, librarykeeper:

It is with a heavy heart that I use the last strenght of my life to write down this last testimony about the new Evil that approaches. After Korax was defeated we became complacent and unaware, and now the Vale is upon us. I have consolidated all of my knowledge about the Vale and the corruption of the Brothers and have gathered all relating material in this journal. I will hide this journal deep in the depths of the library so that it may not fall into the hands of the forces of Evil.

My life is forfeit and I cannot take on the task to try to save the people of Chronos. It is my desperate hope that a hero will rise that will save us from Chaos and despair. If you are such a person then read this journal well; for it may help you in your travels. But if you are unpure of heart, or if you lack the courage, then it will offer you no certainty but despair.

They are coming closer now and I hear them scream, it's been 17 nights since they started to dig their way in. I cannot keep myself safe any longer. I shall attempt to conjure a protection spell that cloaks the journals from view. It will take my last strength.. the Vale is so strong.... My fellow clerics have offered their lives so as to allow me finish this spell in time, they do not know the spell for they will fall into darkness themselves and might undo it.

I hear them being slain and corrupted by the Shadow's spawn. I hear the madness is upon them and soon they will help the enemy to find me, as there is no doubt that they fall into the shadow themselves. The barrier will not hold long, and the spawn know it's secrets.

This is my last entry, the spell is almost conjured and I will now seal this journal within it, I will take my life before they reach me. My knowledge cannot fall into the hands of evil. Farewell my friends, my task is done.

Roden.
