Description
This is the sequel to Nargad's Trail: Argon's Evil Lair, but the gameplay and concept is quite different from NTAEL. The quest doesn't put much emphasis on story, but instead focuses on an emerging world to explore. Besides that, there are 8 classical dungeons featured in this quest and 1 big final dungeon. While you go through the dungeons in a linear order, side quests and a massive overworld to explore change up the pace constantly.

Features:
  • A compelling story, but no heavy cutscenes!
  • A vast overworld, countless hours of exploration
  • 8 Mysterious dungeons, all with a puzzling, unique theme
  • 1 Final dungeon, with two possible endings
  • Quality interiors, including royal palaces, many houses and hidden caverns
  • A heavily modified version of DoR 1.0 as tileset
  • Reappearing NPCs from NTAEL
  • Discover more about Argon and the Orb of Fierce
  • Custom (non-scripted) bosses, with fun gameplay
  • Good quality graphics
  • Many scripts to make the game smooth
  • Energy resource instead of mana
  • Some custom music
  • Walking SFX
  • Traveling system
  • Diverse sidequests

Tips & Cheats
Use the map signs when lost, since the last major update they don't only show where you are, but also show where to go!

You continue at the last village or dungeon you were in, or at the last place you entered or left. Remember this when dying much in the overworld.

When you've saved, you continue at the last dungeon or village you were in.

Exploration is key in finding Heart Container Pieces, nice money rewards or upgrades.

You always get a hint where to go next after each dungeon, so be sure to pay attention to the text!

The road to level 2 is very long, so prepare for a long travel!

Pay much attention to what Frozenblood says after each dungeon. He will usually give you a direction on what to do next, even if it seems irrelevant.
