Revenge of the Ducks 2

As we move on to the next installment we can discover a lot of improvements, but also some annoying things. But first, the good things.
As simple as the story may seem, it works well in this case. ROTD2 starts out with Ronan the duck, travelling through the kingdom of Xanatos. On his path he finds a wounded bonca, shot by a hunter. After scaring the hunter away with a fireball, he tries to help the bonca. Unfortunately it's too late, but before it passes away the bonca asks Ronan to take care of his baby bonca, hidden in some caves. Ronan accepts the bonca's dying wish and looks after him. Since the baby bonca didn't have a name yet, Ronan calls him Billie. When Ronan and Billie return to the land of Xanatos some time later, the player can start his next adventure.
Throughout the d-mod you'll find nothing out of the ordinary, for the exception of the new main character you play with. You don't play with Ronan alone this time, but also with Billie. When you fight physically, Billie will slash the enemy with it's tail (the normal bonca attack), but when you cast magic it's Ronan turn to roast the enemies.
There is one new magic in store for you, but only in the end, when you will never need it since the story ends at that moment. It looks like a normal fireball, but when it hits something, it leaves a flame behind.
And that's it... Or isn't it? Of course not. I mentioned there was something annoying too, didn't I? Well, I understand that every big d-mod suffers from bugs, which are normally solved in later patches and that will keep the player happy. Unfortunately, this d-mod isn't much bigger than it's predecessor and still it suffers from some bugs that can really destroy your savegame. First of all, there is a bug in the game which you will only notice later on, perhaps even after you saved and so you will have to restart the entire d-mod. I'm not going to tell you what it is, because it would ruin the story. The only clue I can give you is : Do NOT take the mushroom before you are told to!
For the rest there are some hardness issues and on some occasions you will be able to end up in the water, etc...
Mainly, this d-mod is just a preparation for it's sequel.
