Explaination: Based on a few factors, Squirrel and I decided that Foutpost would be separated from Badlands and the rest of the map series. Badlands and the other maps will take place on an island known as Halier. Foutpost will stay where it is. This story is the backstory of the island >_>

This is now part of the MS:C lore, according to Lanethan himself.

Enjoy

Oh, and if ya find any mistakes or anything, feel free to tell me in a none haha-you-suck-as-a-Grammar-Nazi kind of way and I'll reupload the file with fixes :p. Feedback is also welcome :)

This is the only lore I have ever really read. Everything else I have skipped over.

I support this wholeheartedly by the way, just to confirm what I told you in PMs.

middle of nowhere
She held it in both hands and stabbed it deep into the ground. Steam greeted the metal as it slid into the rock effortlessly
this just doesn't seem to flow, not entirely anyways...perhaps it is the placement of the word "effortlessly"

"She held it in both hands and stabbed it deep into the ground. Steam greeted the metal as it slid effortlessly into the rock" might sound a bit better?

They could not bear the site
They could not bear the sight ?



other than that, lookin good to me.

the "wish" is in the human's possession. So there should be an apostrophe.

You're both wrong, but P is more correct. It's supposed to be humans'

No, I'm not going to make all the Chaos instances lower case. It's capitalized for a reason.

Foutpost will stay where it is
Which is... Nowhere. >< - We'll have to connect it to something eventually. :/

...and I agree with Rilez that this isn't really custom content material... But we don't have a lore, or "idea man" section either... Hmm... Could use a Stories section maybe.

PS. Dear lord man, you do realize that with the time and effort you put into that you coulda finished Badlands twice. ;)

That's nothing. Working on Badlands I was able to complete Badlands twice ;-) Squirrel just didn't like it :(

The majority of the story only took <6 hours one night =|

Edit: Oh, and I meant foutpost was staying where it was in the middle of the world map where ya have it. That is, of course, unless ya want to move it :p

Edit2: I'm all for a stories/concepts section, but until then, it's here or Art, and since this was dealing with a map series, I chose CC.

Suppose I could just bump off Badlands and connect Foutpost to Keledrosprelude2 (although I've an issue that I can't remove that fence to the other transition).... Whatever happened to your completed version of Badlands though?

It wasn't completed, I suppose.. But there was a nice pretty picture of it :(

Anyway, think about it. Do you want a blocky, laggy Badlands or one made by Squirrel ;-)

o_O

would you be interested in an entire world map that is done very, very crapily?
Yes.

Hell, I'd add Little G's old map "Hidden Forest" to the FN if it was ripented down to some sane monster layout.

Less concerned about aesthetics, more concerned about game play – otherwise I’d be working on Source. ;)

...I don't want the game to be filled with a few beautiful maps and mostly POS maps.
