    Upcoming T2 FM: Enigma of Arvindale.

    Imagine -- a city of the vanishined hopes. Those were blessed by the Builder days, until something terrible made the people to roam in fear, saving their lives from the devils of their dreams. You're playing as Kevin. A young thief from a poor family, who pickpockets not just for his own desire, but to feed his brother and sick father. One night, Kevin been waiting for a sleepy stranger with a big purse. Suddenly a big strange flash came from the Arvindale Spire, the mages institute and the longest building in the city. Many people were surprised, and yet, It was just a couple of minutes, before "they" started to spread the chaos. Nothing did stop them - swords, arrows, they just rushed and killed everyone on their way. People were starting running like a bunch of rats...
    However, a squad of mechanists from the Oakford sewer station called people inside, for a shelter. Nobody amongst the citizens knew how they managed to be prepared for that. Not everyone accepted their hand of help, some people just fleed into nowhere in fear... Into their dead end. Kevin, however, was the one who valued his life, so he came inside, feeling like he was betraying someone, but he simply didn't want to die.

    Few weeks passed after that awful disaster. The streets were emptined, the survived people were doomed to rot undeground and wait for help... And the worst -- leader of the saviors has been lost. He came to the surface without warning anyone, but only a mechanist worker, to find the other survived humans. Kevin knew, that if he'd keep sitting in there he'll be rotting with no chance. Maybe surpassing his fears and coming to the surface -- is his destiny? Besides, he felt a burden of regret for not coming to his family to help. He's got no other wish, then following the saviors leader footsteps and find what's left of the other city areas, and... To find what did cause all this sudden chaos.

    Author's comment:
    First of all, this is for the first I'm working that ambitious over a city project. I surely want to thank DrK for the "Night of Rocksbourg" as inspiration! Without that glorious campaign, for sure, I don't think I'd ever start something like Arvindale.
    So as a personal achievement, I'd like to finish this city, even though It's not going to be anyhow perfect or good.
    (I barely expect something perfect from myself, oh gosh...)

    There's also another FM I'm going to release on September, once I'll be finished with briefing video creation.

    My favorite mission type, too - even more so when "mystery locations" are included like a lost temple in a cellar (used for rituals), an undead-laden crypt under a "nonsuspecting building" (a crypt so old that it isn't under a regular church/temple), or a portal that could lead anywhere etc. etc.

    That's looking good, Zoro. I'm excited that you are working on a city mission.

    It looks really good. The play always outweighs the pretty. Keep it rolling.

    Looking good zoro, and as Russia has produced such brilliant authors such as Zontik and savar, i have high expectations of your must have something to do with the vodka they drink over there.

    Thank you everyone! Here's some more:

    A pawn shop and a small museum just above

    fortuni I doubt vodka acts positively at all I think It's about being ambitious and stuff.

    All is going well, except few things. I'm not satisfied with the general layout. It started well, but now I'm building something like cube-cube-windows-roof. Building such a town and wanting to make it unique is really a challenge. Especially if you never lived or was in medieval-styled cities, especially if you're in pursue to make "that" or "that" building, but then you realize it doesn't fit this part of street.

    Absolutely loving the screenies, Zoro!
    If you were looking to vary your city layout, you could try having streets at different levels. Assassins in T1 is a good example of this.

    Almost done for the city part, it's not that much and I hope cell limits will allow me to finish it as I planned. Two major interior locations are upcoming.

    After a little break I've started constructing mechanists station of Oakford, alongside with some readables, which aren't that important, but a little 2-3 cents into the setting storytale.

    Abandoned hopes, underground elevator shaft entrance

    The project isn't dead, but the construction speed moderately decreased due to some stuff of personal kind.
    Will have to build a stable emblem of Arvindale.
