You listen to too many ale-tales, Morkin

The Lords of Midnight official novel is available to pre-order via Amazon in ebook form which will be launched on the Summer Solstice, June 21 2018. Paperback copies are due in September.

The land of Midnight was cursed into eternal winter many thousands of moons ago.

 

The survivors battle hardship, famine and war; having beaten back Doomdark, the Witchking, in a battle that lives on in legend. 


But now, at the Winter Solstice, neither the Lords of Midnight nor the Fey of the forests can resist his greatest weapon, the ice-fear.


Their only hope rests in ancient lore, the myth of a long lost house and the legend of the Moonprince.

The eye wearied of gazing at water…

An early version of the landscaping with added water… There’s a lot of work to do to get it right, but it’s a start. Images with and without features for comparison.

First image is a river running between the Lith of Mitharg and down the Plains of Gard. The second is a river running through the Plains of Blood.

Why is the solstice important…?

Drew has posted an update on the progress of the Official Novel… on his blog. I don’t have much to say that he hasn’t covered, apart from: I’ve been following the progress with the updates as they’ve landed on my computer, and I think we’re in for a treat. I’ve been really enjoying it so far…

JugiPaint and Midnight

Jure, who drew the graphics for The Lords of Midnight and Doomdark’s Revenge remakes, not to mention all the illustrations from the Novellas and often displayed here, develops a graphics package called JugiPaint. So every now and then he throws me something he has drawn using it while using Midnight as his inspiration.

Fallen trees and stray boulders made a mountain range of the forest floor

Screenshot 2016-01-14 19.55.13While I’ve been looking at the data for The Citadel, and putting it in a editable format, I thought I’d make available the data for The Lords of Midnight and Doomdark’s Revenge. The zip file includes a JSON file for the database structure and a JSON file that can be loaded into TILED.

I’m pretty sure that this is the exact same data that has been released with the game, however I can’t be 100% sure due hacks I might have done in code at the 11th hour!

30 Years Old

30-years
In 1984, Mike Singleton and Beyond released The Lords of Midnight. It’s hard to find an exact date, review copies were starting to appear with the Weekly Magazines toward the end of May, and the Monthlies seemed to have it in their June or July edition. On that basis, 1st June seems a good as date as any to celebrate 30 years.

So, Happy Birthday The Lords of Midnight!!

As part of that celebration, I have reduced the price of The Lords of Midnight and Doomdark’s Revenge across all formats, for the whole month. So if there is a version you haven’t got get…

I believe that GoG.com will be also running a promotion this month.

Also, if you want some original nostalgia, why not check it out using Spectaculator on iOS, Android, Windows. Or there is The Lords of Midnight:8 Bit on Android.

Or if you haven’t tried it Multi-User why not visit Midnight/MU.
