Not to be rudundant, but this is one of the 3 entries in the Alternative Hero contest, and for the short period of time it took to make this it sure came out with some great results.

Graphics: Besides the regular dink graphics, there were alot of modified graphics such as: the new tiles that are basically sweet paths leading up the cliffs, lyna's modified graphics (for weapons since no one but dink used weapons), and the the modified palette (which I will get into later.

Story: Simple story, the king wants someone to go up to some dangerous cliffs to see if his knights are truely dead, or just missing. During the story you will see some truely amazing effects (which will be covered in the next section). With the simple story this d-mod would have been boaring, but with the graphics and scripting, the d-mod gets almost as good as a epic.

Scripting: The best part of this d-mod, the scripting bring new and refreshing things to d-mod making and will amaze you. First thing I noticed is that there was no bugs, glitches, or things of that nature which is always a plus. Next thing I noticed is that if you step on a 'crack' in the cliffs you will fall to you death...nice effect! The third thing (which you can't miss) if that you can enter a 'shadow world' by talking to dead dragons. The shadow world is simular to the real world but everything is in a new palette and the coding for moving back and forth is flawless, and no bugs (which I expected there to be).

GamePlay: Now, most of the game play has been covered but one thing. There are several ending depending on what you do, and you can 'end' the game any time and get your results (which has never been done).

Overall: Great d-mod, and a must play.
