Scattered Evil Beta 5 released

The latest beta release of Scattered Evil is available here. For more information on how to play, see this page.

The most important highlights:

  • Over a dozen new locations have been added. The download includes a map copy showing the number of dungeons (red) and towns (blue) that can be reached from a travel map node.
  • All order bases throughout the province are now accessible and include NPCs that can heal you (Church), repair your armor (Legion) or charge up your mana stores (Arcanum).
  • The market hall in Thystes is open now so you don’t have to travel half a province any more to do your shopping.
  • The first night club of Chronos is now open in Thystes. Not for minors and not for the faint of heart.

Scattered Evil Beta 4 released

The latest beta release of Scattered Evil is available here. For more information on how to play, see this page.

The most important highlights:

  • 6 maps of desert fighting await you at the Ruins of Nisisil and the Pyramid of Krylu.
  • Shopping now available: Ocadia’s market includes two dozen merchants who will sell you all kinds of goodies. There is even a blacksmith that can repair your armor.
  • All three order halls are now accessible from the provincial capital, Thystes. Any one of the order heads can send you to locations not accessible from the travel map. They can also grant you levels if you ask them nicely.
  • Become part of a love triangle at the Hytesthani Inn or take offense at the way some of the townspeople talk to you.

The ice cubes are gone

For those who have followed this project since the early days, the original alpha town (in the final version the plains city called Ocadia) was chock full of “ice cubes”, as the early builds were using the KMOD 1.x engine that only allowed for replacements of existing textures, not adding new ones. In later builds, the ice textures used for houses were reverted to their original skins, making the town look “cool”. As part of the upcoming beta release, due to a massive cleanup now all the houses in this city look like actual houses.

Website rebuild started

Much of the information collected over the years is in old web applications, many of which have already stopped working (and the rest will probably follow suit sooner or later, after a PHP or system upgrade). As lately the project started gathering steam once again, it makes sense to refurbish all the previously available information into a new, unified container that is easy to keep up-to-date.
