This is the place for updates of the current status of the Khadion NPC-mod.

---------------

Update 2004-12-15

First of all, I wish to welcome two new members to the Khadion-team! We now also have Shadowhawke and Kai of Candlekeep aiding us with their writing and thoughts. A big welcome to both of them, of course. They've already proved to be great assets! :)

Work is progressing quite quickly, at this moment. I seem to be doing nothing but writing and editing right now. Banters, interjections and other dialogue are being written amazingly fast, and it's almost hard to keep up. ;)

Moreover, I can report that discussions regarding different questions are currently being held inside the workroom. Khadion's personal quest is being refined and tweaked, as well as most other things. :)

I also have plans to get on writing on the fanfic I've got stored somewhere. It still needs a lot of work, but I'll get there - eventually. If you're one of those waiting impatiently for the fanfic, banter-previews or other things, do say so, if only to increase my own motivation! ;)

More information will be available soon. In the meantime, feel free to ask questions or write a few lines to inspirate us to work even harder on this mod!

Update 2005-01-13

It's almost been a month since the last update, but work has been progressing a lot without me posting it. ;)

As of today, Khadion's new introduction is out, and you can read the breath-taking facts here.

About a week or so ago, a new writer by the name of Shfelliot also joined the team. He's been producing a lot of great banters, so he's been a great addition to the team already! :D

This very moment, a large amount of banters has been written, I think that Mazzy and Sarevok has the lead with 5 banters each, so far. We also have a number of written interjections under the knife (me and Shed are editing like crazy), so the writing-part is definently coming on. :)

As for technical side, I've started playing around with some advanced scripting to enchance the mod even further. Yes, the scripting will be extensive, to give the players a better experience playing the mod! ;)

Another piece of news is that we proudly can annouce that a romance is being planned! It took us a great deal of consideration, but we felt that a romance in ToB wasn't too off-key. Yes, you heard correctly, the romance is in ToB only, for various reasons. Khadion will be unsuited to romance in SoA, but when he's developed a bit, the ToB-portion of the mod offers great possibilities. :D

If anyone has questions, feel free to start a new topic or drop a note in the FAQ-thread. :)

To help me prioritising, I've started a poll where people can specify what they want to see next. Come by and place your vote over here! ;)

Until next time - Seb.

Update 2005-02-04

Another few weeks has passed, and progress on Khadion has been enormous. The todo-list has now grown to an astoundishing length of 300 entries - and counting!

So far, roughly 40 different NPC-banters has been written, and are under the editing-phase at the moment. 40 banters is about one third of what we have planned, but that estimation might grow even further! Note that this is not even counting the extensive PC-banters, as well as the romance. The writing is a very large task, and there will eventually be thousands of lines for you to play with.

The main SoA-plot for Khadion has been finalised, and work has started on it. We're still hammering out the details of the ToB-plot (including romancing), and I think that will be finished fairly soon, so that we can start working on that too.

Technically, not much progress has been made. We're currently prioritising writing, editing and planning, which leaves little time to coding. But we'll surely get there sooner or later.

Later this month, we will start announce the need for voice actors, so sit tight and wait for the call if you're interested! We're going to need several of you! The voicing will be a very important part of the mod, and we naturally want as high quality as possible.

The portrait is progressing just fine. The artist is working on it, and I promise that you all will be blown away with the result!

Stay tuned for more information, and keep your eyes open for the call to all voice actors out there!

As usual, feel free to ask any questions in the forum or the FAQ-thread.

- Seb.
