This is an epic (may end up being a very long quest) Dmod in progress, secretly started back in October 2009 and originally known only to a few. Everyone else was given knowledge that I was teaching myself to "script good" with Skeletons. Which I have also been doing, take the Quest Log for example. But I'm getting off-topic already...

Fate of Destiny pits Dink against shocking odds as two mysterious sides battle it out; One to resurrect an Ancient, the other to stop them. Unwillingly, Dink is thrust into the midst of this secret war and must choose who to aid; The honorable Dawn Knight Liberation army, or the secretive Brotherhood of Cod.

Which side will you choose?

Release Date: Tomorrow (Approximate)
Currently completed percentage: 6
Screenshots of non-demo content coming soon!

Updated the Planned Features; clearly I wasn't thinking straight (probably am not, still; 00:42 in the morning) and also added the % complete.

There's still a lot of work to be done though!

I know, not somehow, but by sheer logic that this D-Mod, if it's ever released, will be in between 0 and 10.

According to those who have access, its currently worthy of a 6.5 approximately

Of course, those who have access are not known, or allowed to be known.

Several months since I last posted on this thread, time for a progress report;

~Map 1's external landscape (island) has been almost finished;
~2 new bosses added
~2 towns semi-completed, unfinished internal buildings currently have locked doors
~A few attempts at importing new sprites has been made without significant success yet
~FINALLY fixed problems with the first boss
~Development changes to Ice-orb spell have been made to create ANOTHER defensive spell; Ice-spin
~A second trailer may be in production
~An explanation for why Dink loses his stats in almost EVERY new Dmod is given, though wether or not its accepted is a different matter
~Secret cutscene added to a particular bridge depending on certain circumstances

I must admit though; Work on FoD has been pretty slow these past few months with my Cookery course, but I still work on it when I get the opportunity.
More progress reports to come (I hope)!

Quick Edit: 2 more things added to the list above.
Also, those who previously had Beta access are temporarilly closed out of the loop for now I'm afraid, but at 50% I'll open up for more beta testers.

Quick update since this thread is always disappearing and I have hardly said anything about this:

The demo will be receiving a patch this month or next, finally fixing several long-standing issues (mainly the boss fight).
As for the main Dmod itself, I haven't had as much time as I'd hoped to work on it. This Dmod, however, -will- be finished

I've been ordered to keep working on this by a certain Kiwi in a different part of Kiwiville, so there will be kiwicookies.

I mean screenshots; Links are now in the first post (edit).

Update:
Opened and scrolled across the map today after god only knows how long since I touched the thing. Everything is as I remembered it.
Closed it again. More updates to come.

EDIT: Jeez, this has been in development for over 5 years...

Making Topics off-track faster then you can say it 
I'm guessing when an author says epic, it must mean it won't happen. Or it could mean the author adds one tree a year.

Don't look at me, I'm a ghost 
After a month on hiatus and due to procrastination, I took a few moments today and decided "Alright Evan, it's about time."

After prowling through my hard-drive in search of my Dmod directory (completely forgetting and ignoring the shortcut to the folder sitting smack back in the middle of my desktop), I propped open WDE on the main screen and planted a tree on screen 442.
I think it really made a difference in contrast to the duck I last left there.

I have 8 trees on screen 442.

Oh yeah, well I have a script on screen 442 that has an infinite loop of tree creation. No- I'm not compensating for anything. What are you implying?

The world could always use more heroes 
I don't have trees on screen 442 yet. It's in an area I haven't gotten around to mapping yet since it's an area of the map which is part of the late game, which I haven't gotten to yet. I think I win.

2nd generation. No easy way to be free. 
Any chance this dmod is going to be revived and finished?
