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
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
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."
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.
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.
