A preview of areas to come
« on: September 20, 2004, 07:32:05 AM »
A month ago, when I was still without a forum, I included these two previews of some of the new areas that the mod will feature in a newspost on the site. A lot of people probably missed them so here they are.

The forum is decreasing their size so click here to open them in a new window: http://echon.cyg.dk/bgmod/FotD01.jpg & http://echon.cyg.dk/bgmod/FotD02.jpg

Those look nice - is the top one part of the Fields of the Dead?

Yes. You will be travelling to The Fields of the Dead region, more specifically to an area called The Battle of Bones, which you will learn more about ingame.

No. It would not make much difference either. These areas are already empty, there is nothing but the background image. :)

I belong in that group of people who read the site, so I didn't miss it. However, you might not have heard the comments I have about them. Colour me impressed by them! :) And I see they also match really well with the existing BG1 areas.

So there is a wasteland north of Baldur's Gate? I never knew that (I don't excel in FR geography either, so I assume there is one, now that I have seen those maps).

I am sure Max will appreciate your feedback. :)

Not really wasteland. The Fields of the Dead is mostly a big, flat area of plains and heath. The site of The Battle of Bones is more akin to badlands, however. At least, that is what I made it. There are a few rocky locations here and there along the Sword Coast. You may remember the area with the basilisks, Durlag's Tower or some of the areas south-east of the Nashkel Mines.

You know, if you've actually bought and own a game, movie, album, etc then it's perfectly legal to download yourself a new copy.  Of course I'm not going to tell you where you can do that, but if you know much about the internet it should be fairly obvious ;).

As the FAQ states, yes, you do need Tales of the Sword Coast to play this mod. If you try to install FotD on Baldur's Gate with the expansion, a weapons platform in outer space will shoot your brother with something sharp. Depending on your perspective, this may be desirable.
