Well, I have some really good news. All of the promotion quests both first and second ones are placed into the database. They have full dialogue and are fully scripted to work in LOE. They just need to be called from an NPC and need dungeons which aren't to difficult to create.

NOTE: I already posted an update that the quests were all written up but they were not in the database at that time.

Progress is moving swiftly!

ALSO: Can I please get an admin to remove the poll so I can place new one! Thanks :)

Since I am working on two different versions of LOE (Might and Magic version and the Ultima version) I have decided to give both games sub titles. The image is suppose to be one head of the Serpent of the Void (The Upgraded Gamma Gazer from MMV)

The Might and Magic inspired LOE is now called, "Legend of Erthia - Armageddon."

I have decided that I am also going to give LOE – Armageddon a UI upgrade. After working with LOE – The Etheral Gate, I had to do the same with LOE – Armageddon. In order to do this I had to make some changes to the game to get the best visuals.

The resolution has been converted back to the original, the party is now back to 4 members which will give some replay-ability in regards to trying new classes. I have also updated the way item and equipment names are displayed. EX: a sword will now be represented by an icon of a sword or the graphic in the grid inventory and the name “Crusader of Light + 5″ will be the weapon’s names.

Material and bonus info will be placed into the description fields. I had to do this because names were getting too long “Diamond Crusader Sword of Undead Slaying” and would get cut off.

I have also gave the main parameters (might, intellect, etc…) greater value in regards to bonuses for characters. I found in MM that they weren’t that useful. In LOE every point will count! Below are some screenshots of the changes. NOTE: The shop window still needs some adjusting in regards to labels (shown on the right are the incorrect parameters).

Thanks a lot MMXAlamar! Greatly appreciated.

UPDATE: I was able to implement five heroes rather than four. Six still won't work.

IMHO fonts are rather hard to read while in action. Maybe something regular then italic?

The font is close to unreadable. Bright background adds to this.
Health and mana bars are gone!
My patches: MM6 MM7 MM8. MMExtension. Tools. Also, I love Knytt Stories and Knytt Underground. I'm also known as sergroj.

I did some changes in regards to the main interface for walking around and combat. I also changed the font to something a little more readable. The health and mana bars have been restored.

Video reflecting the changes:

Below is the description of the update taken from the LOE site.

News Update:

"This is the new combat interface for, The Legend of Erthia - Armageddon. The main view will no longer have the classic window and will take a new modern interface to adapt with the new menus. Combat will also have short keys like in Might and Magic: Pressing "A" for melee attack, "C" for casting a spells, etc... I will be adding a bow slot so that heroes can use a bow/crossbow and a melee weapon in combat. Ranged attacks will be extremely useful against flying creatures. Again, the music playing in the background is the composition I created for the main combat theme to LOE - Armageddon."

I don't mean to spam the forum, but LOE is ins good process I have some more updates.

Below are two screenshots of the LOE UI, and I also included a link to the video of the main theme to Felicia.

..just make sure there are a good number of random item drops after the battles. That's the most fun for me. :)

I agree, it was m favorite too! You can expect a very good and dynamic treasure system in LOE. I put a lot of focus on that and it's much more complex than MM. There will be lots and lots of treasure to be found!
