Greetings all

My brother asked me to build a classic style Dungeon crawl.

Ruins of Xylon: NWS-DC76ORA4I
Chapter 1. Journey to the Ruins: NW-DUXG6IH9O
Chapter 2. The Temple of Xylon: NW-DKCNH2HVY

Classic Dungeon Crawl
Duration: Just under an hour for both chapters.
First half has moderate combat, Second half is heavy on combat.

Starts at a wanted poster nailed to some crates in PE

A small mountain village is being plagued by nightly raids of bizarre creatures. The Mayor hires you to investigate and if possible stop the raids. After you reach the ruins of the once great city of Xylon it's a race against time to thwart the evil cult before they resurrect their horrible god. Do you have what it takes?

    Update: Chapter 1 Replaced some points i was having trouble with, The river lookout near the first objective has returned as well as the covered bridge blockade. moved some objectives slightly to better match their dialog.
    Chapter 2 Reduced the size of the dungeon and removed a couple of redundant encounters, Added a ton of new affects plus newly redesigned lighting and changed some of the encounters. Replaced the helper NPC Lomar's wife (look for her).

    Update: I have been told the dungeon map and the ruins map run slowly so i reduced the details on both about 10% and that seems to have done the trick. Patched some holes in the walls in the dungeon(can't figure out where those came from).

    Update: Resolved an error causing players to get stuck in a couple of places in the ruins. Totally rearranged the quest path in the ruins. It no longer will take you up into the mountains. Changed a lot of details in the ruins and included a new encounter by the fort as well as some new sound affects.

    Thanks for your Interest

    Update: Reduced the difficulty of the last encounter, Adjusted traps near the first portal room. Cleaned up a lot of graphic clips causing details to flicker in certain areas.

    Thanks for your Interest.

    Update: Finished adding the effects to the village assault map of the first chapter. The fires in the village now are green in the presence of the cult. Added the ability to rescue one of the Brewmaidens from the ruins in chapter one. Added villagers that can be rescued from the dungeon in chapter 2 ( you have to look for them). Changed the ending to be more in line with someone who saves a village ( :) Party Time! :) ).
