Karnak - Gameplay Mod for Heretic/Hexen/Deathkings

Recommended Posts

GET IT HERE!

 

Basically here's a fun excuse to binge your Heretic and Hexen mapsets again.

 

Karnak is a gameplay mod series that changes Heretic, Hexen, and Hexen: Deathkings into a sci-fi and sorcery epic. You play Maa’hes, rightful king of the lion-headed centauroids known as the Leonids, the dominant species on planet Karnak.

 

KARNAK – For Heretic. The Beast King Marduk has come from a galaxy far, far away to conquer Karnak and the rest of the Khepri System. Using a combination of guns, magic, and brute strength, Maa’hes slays his way through 5 episodes to save Karnak and rid the cosmos of Marduk’s taint forever.

 

KARNAK 2 – For Hexen. After a lengthy inter-dimensional campaign, Maa’hes finally returns to his homeworld, only to find it on the brink of holocaust: a creature known as the Defiler is posing as the god of the Crimson Order, pushing the red-robed cultists to amass an unstoppable legion. Play as Maa’hes, Gilgamesh, or Ren and stop the Defiler’s followers.

 

KARNAK: SCOURGE OF ABYDOS – For Hexen: Deathkings. Maa’hes returns to Memphis to reclaim his birthright…and is promptly thrown in a cell for impersonating a monarch. His only chance to fulfill his destiny as ruler of Karnak is to stop the Dark Lord Nergal, dictator of Abydos, from poisoning the river and subjugating the leonid people.

God damn, those enemies have so much personality. Great mythological theme (a lot of lions, snakes, female enemies, and plenty of bosses)

Thanks Cupboard! There's a few more in the Hexen mods (Leonids with guns, for example) but I haven't made a list for them yet. The Deathkings mod is separate due to the story being new and also the main villain, who fights you periodically throughout the game in little teaser battles.

 

I think I tested the first mod on a few of your maps, if I remember right, and they worked really well together.

Wow, this looks super cool. Hexen/DK has been on my list to replay for a couple years now, and this might be just the way to go.

Put together a list of wads that best mesh with Karnak besides the original iwads. Load up Karnak with any of these for a good time/challenge:

HERETIC
Call of the Apostate
Dark Deity's Bastion
Realm of Parthoris
Wayfarer
Masters of Chaos (music fix)

HEXEN
Vaults
Shannara
Vicerus (music fix)
Wolfen

 


EDIT: Added a music fix patch for Vicerus and MoC so i don't have to mess with the original wads. Just add the respective patch to the end of the wad loading queue for the proper Karnak music if you want.
