A story, that happened 10 years before the unnamed hero
was thrown into the mining colony.


Myrtana, the Vaduz Island, not long before the creation of magic barrier and not long after the beginning of war with orcs. Thanks to the fate, leading a rather monotonous life, Lars becomes a participant in the event that changes everything. In mysterious circumstances, twelve of the most powerful mages of the kingdom led by famous Grandmaster of Fire, Xardas, arrive on the island. No one knows, what they are doing there. The only thing that is known is that soon they plan to continue their journey.

Lars, after helping the mages, will receive a proposition to travel with them to the Khorinis Island. Wizards are going to create there a magic barrier to isolate prisoners from the outside world,… at least that’'s what they say. Our hero will receive different tasks (not only from the mages), which may be a real challenge for a player.

Character and the world

Lars is a young man, who with his father (a former soldier of royal army), has a small blacksmith shop near the city of Vaduz. His father, apart from teaching him the profession, helps him in combat skills. His dream is that his son will find some peaceful job and that he won’t take part in any battles.

He himself, as a veteran of wars with orcs, doesn’t deal well with the trauma. After smallpox and death of his wife he drinks a lot getting himself in more trouble. However, as it appears – the worst is yet to come...

Mages arrive on the island and after you fulfill a task given by them, they offer you collaboration and going with them on the Khorinis Island. What will we find there? The old harbor known from Gothic 2 will be unrecognizable. Dozens moored ships, sailors, traders, knights, prisoners and travelers will fill the whole harbor neighborhood. Apart from that, the whole city will be refreshed and extended. The Khorinis Island itself will also look different: all burned down houses and destroyed constructions will look as new, there will be more roads, a few times more people, more households, inns and other interesting objects.

The Valley of Mines also will look differently. The Old Camp, once in ruin, now will look as brand new, mountain fortress and collapsed mines will be full of life. There will be a few mines and not only in the Valley of Mines, but also on Khorinis. Of course, acces to the Valley of Mines will be restricted, not anyone will be able to enter. Safe conduct pass will be needed.

The rest will be told by screenshots.

Hi,

first of all there is no official announcement that Chronicles of Myrtana will release their mod at 2021, they might just postpone it to Q4 2020, time will show :)

I don't want to relate to rumours, so I can only say that we're just working :) We don't have Abuyin to predict future :D Release date might be changed due to epidemic, but we're not able to say it now.

Hello, I have a question. Since your development team and team of Chronicles of Myrtana split, does it mean that both modes will have the same base map for island?

Your Island is called Vaduz and their is called Archolos. But will the base map be the one you both created before the separation? And more importantly will the entire mod base with the base ideas and what not be the same for 2 mods? So as in both Chronicles of Myrtana and History of Khorinis are different versions of the same mod?

That includes:Main Story, Quests, Map, Game Mechanics, Items

Hi,

Islands maps in Chronicles of Myrthana and our mod will be different. Yes, base map was created by us before the separation, but during development it is still changing and now looks differently than before separation. I can not say if base ideas will be the same for both mods, because we don't know how looks story of Chronicles of Myrthana mod.

The Chronicles of Myrthana and the History of Khorinis will be ither mods. It relates to all factors which you wrote about. It can not be possible to avoid using same ideas for quests or game mechanics, but their setting will be different.

Greetings
