Kenon's wads/mods for Heretic/Hexen

Recommended Posts

Hello! I wasn't on this forum since 2009 year. My interest to modifications to Doom reduced, but i feel it my duty to tell you about works of my close friend Kenon . We are both from Russia, and he is good mapper for games Heretic: Shadow of Serpent Riders and Hexen: Beyond Heretic, which are based on Doom 2 engine. He knows English language even less than me, so i decided to make this post. I'm not sure if i choose the right section to post, but move this thread, if i'm wrong.

I will try to introduce to his works with screenshots, description and link to download. Let's go!

Hardworld (Falanor chaos)

This wad consists of two episodes: Hardworld and Falanor Chaos. All wads of Kenon have a very high difficulty. This wad is not designed for Single Player mode, only for Online Cooperative (with ports Skulltag or Zandronum). This mod contains good architecture of levels and interesting gameplay. New music was added, also monsters from Hexen, new textures etc. It have also a lot of enemies and own story.

Yes, they are really great, i think you should try to play this.
First three mods are for Heretic, and the last one for Hexen.

I remember initially encountering that one "Hexen custom map pack" on a game server once and having a dickens of a time finding it again (I eventually stumbled on his site doing some unrelated searching). It's a fairly good one.

Is there a reason he doesn't upload to the idgames archive?

Because he badly knows English language.

Sorry to bump this thread but here goes.

I have been slowly playing through Welcome to Karambaras map set also known as (pieceofshit.wad) with using Zandronum on difficulty 2 while I am not playing anything else. Though it has a lot of enemies it is still playable on single player. Unlike the name of the wad it is not the best map set I have played it is not the worst either. It is nowhere near a piece of shit.

My biggest tiff is that I feel like I am being trolled with the map set. Though I have played Heretic: SOTSR on difficulty 4, Heretic: Curse Of D'Sparil and Hordes of Chaos on Difficulty 3 I feel like my Heretic skills are more than adapt to play most Heretic map sets. But somehow I feel like I am still being trolled with this map set. No one trolls me at Heretic. You can troll me all you want for Doom and sometimes for Hexen but I refuse to be trolled at Heretic. If there is a way to get through it I will find a way.

I am one of the very few who joined Doomworld just for Heretic and Hexen so I get tired of people using those games as a fodder to piss off players of this game. I hope this makes sense to you and I hope it gets improved so that I feel that its intention is not to troll me but to challenge me instead.
