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.

Please guide. I was at near shapeshate right after fighting along side Rolf when I closed the game. With my Str at 15 and Agi at 13. Now when I have load the save game. I'm at Str 2 Agi 2. The slaver chief in my party are now shirtless with weekly cost of 1 dinar. Party heroes borcha marnid and chik are not interactive, there own skills are vanished as well. Tavern keeper of whole claradia are missing. Plus my character look like having chemo sessions. no hairs. I thought for a while maybe part of the campaign some magic of pilgrimage darkness but couldn't find any reference.

Ok so i got to the part where i'm supposed to take the ship and sail to "the island" but when i killed all sea raiders i pressed tab to exit instead of taking the ship i suppose. Now i cannot advance in any way. Is there a way to reset the mission or something?

The mission displays: "Defeat a group of sea raiders and let some enemies go". Now i tried to do the same thing again but no sea raider hideout spawns.

hmm, you need to defeat a grp of sea raiders on land, let at least one escape. the escapee(s) will appear blue for the quest and they will lead you to the quest-hideout. Win the hideout and the boat part of the quest starts automatically. Ofc, save between battles.
