    The Necromancer

    Post by Unusedbattery on Sat Feb 13, 2010 8:09 pm

    Geez I haven't been here in a long time.

    Anyway while I was listening to one of my favorite Rush albums "Caress Of Steel" I thought that I would create a mod based on the lyrics of their song "The Necromancer" however, I have no intention of making it a medieval themed mod. I will put my own twists on the plot line of their story, making it take place in the future such as the year "2112" (see what I did there? ) however if anyone is interested and wants to do the source code for this mod, be my guest; since I can't code at all. I'm also planning to have it in the SDL engine. Anyway, the lyrics are as follows:

    I. Into The Darkness
    "As gray traces of dawn tinge the eastern sky, the three travelers, men
    of Willowdale, emerge from the forest shadow. Fording the River Dawn,
    they turn south, journeying into the dark and forbidding lands of the
    Necromancer.
    Even now the intensity of his dread power can be felt, weakening the body and saddening the heart.
    Ultimately they will become empty, mindless spectres; stripped of will
    and soul, only their thirst for freedom gives them hunger for
    vengeance..."

    Silence shrouds the forest
    As the birds announce the dawn
    Three travelers ford the river
    And southward journey on
    The road is lined with peril
    The air is charged with fear
    The shadow of his nearness
    Weighs like iron tears

    II. Under the Shadow
    "Shreds of black cloud loom in overcast skies. The Necromancer keeps
    watch with his magic prism eyes. He views all his lands and is already
    aware of the three helpless invaders trapped in his lair..."

    Brooding in the tower
    Watching o'er his land
    Holding ev'ry creature
    Helplessly they stand
    Gaze into his prisms
    Knowing they are near
    Lead them to the dungeons
    Spectres numb with fear
    They bow defeated

    III. Return of the Prince
    "Enter the Champion.
    Prince By-Tor appears to battle for freedom from chains of long years.
    The spell has been broken; the Dark Lands are bright. The Wraith of the Necromancer soars away in the night."

    Stealthily attacking
    By-Tor slays his foe
    The men are free to run now
    From labyrinths below
    The Wrath of Necromancer
    Shadows through the sky
    Another land to darken
    With evil prism eye.
    Whoa

    The song is comprised of three parts, could be made into three separate episodes for the mod. By-Tor is the main character btw.

    So Wolf3D Haven, what do you think? The story will be formatted to fit with the more futuristic theme soon.

    Nice. Back in the day I was a HUGE Rush fan. Interesting stuff here. I am wondering, will you have some Rush music to go along with the mod as well?

    I found a page with most of the Rush songs made into MIDIs which I know can be converted to IMFs which I sadly do not know how to do.

    That's the easy part. Just download IMF Creator, made by Adam Biser. Works like a charm most the time!

    Wow... for all the years I have been playing and modding Wolfenstein 3D, how come I've never heard of such a tool?

    Thanks.
