A century of war has taken its toll on Calradia and its people. An ancient evil has awoken. Will you rise to the challenge, hero? Enter Zendar - you are a mercenary suffering from nightmares of wars past, wearing coarse clothes and wielding iron sword in hand. The road forward is steep and thick in fogs of war. May you meet friends who'd give their life for you or enemies waiting in ambush? Do you seek power or justice, hero? No matter what, you must rise. For it is you who will decide the future of Calradia. For on this continent, bottomless and cavernous greed has swallowed the hearts and the nature of men. Wars among the five nations rage year after year, so that none realize the darkness creeping into the world once more. Fight hero, discover your destiny, make new allies... or foes... find love... iron and fire... clashes in blood and tears... a battle between good and evil... Light or Darkness? The choice is yours, hero. Will you rise to the challenge?

Mod Credits


Below are the credits for the mod creator and staff. I do not own or take credit for this mod. Oolonglgx, the creator, has given me permission to upload this mod.

As a fan of Light & Darkness, I was disappointed the mod isn't more popular in the general M&B community, perhaps due to its convoluted setup on Nexusmods. I have uploaded a full version file that is already patched to 1.040. I hope that this mod will become more popular.

As far as I know, there is now the second episode, but it is incomplete. However, in a forum it explained that the mode was stopped. So i hope the second part is also published ,even though it's incomplete.

Where is chapter 2?

Hello, and thank you for all your work!

I have a bit of an unusual question, for I'm in the process of researching the original lore of the early M&B versions, and during my research I noticed that Light & Darkness: Heroes of Calradia had a lot of similarities with the original "Warrider" version of M&B, from locations to characters, and other elements of the world.

Unfortunately I don't know enough about the original world to be able to tell just how faithful to it this story really is, and where, if at all, it departs from the "canon" narrative.

I'm very interested in this and would like to know to what extent the creators drew inspiration from the original "Warrider" game, as I would love to learn as much as I can about it!

Thank you

In quest when I play with Borcha to rescue a woman,
in my game, de city is empty, trere´s just a guard, near the gate, walking.
The game do not recognize when I open the gate,
I open, and walk, out, with the woman,
But the message still "open the gate".
Can you help me ?
Thanks !

So I've defeated 10 Dark Hunters before I defeated 10 Forest Bandits, and I don't think anything is happening. Any clue?
