  • Hey Vork! Good seeing you here. I have been playing the Heretic series as of late so I thought I might edit on here too. What are your favorite Hexen classes?

    In Hexen, I always choose Daedolon the Mage. I like him the best, aesthetically and functionally.

    In Hexen II, the Necromancer is hands down my favorite class (because I love necromancy. The idea of it makes me elated). His backstory is something I can relate to; an awkward, weak, scrawny, and unwanted boy who wants to gain respect of his peers, but soon learns to hate them. His dark personality is a result of who he has become. That was my the story of my life up until I graduated recently. And his spells are cool too!

    • Hello, nice to see you here too :)

      Yeah, Daedolon looks really cool and I like the idea of being a powerful magic wielder, but in terms of gameplay I lean towards Baratus the Fighter - with the him the playing style is faster and more aggressive.

      Definitely agree about the Necromancer - his backstory is like an homage to all those shunned kids who started to hate the world because they were misunderstood and bullied. I can relate to it too... too bad there aren't any pyramids or other creepy ancient tombs near my hometown ;)

    • Haha, this place has tons of work to be done!

      Awesome. I like Baratus, but I always gotten go with the badass magic wielder. ;)

      Haha, the Necromancer was made for us! It funny how similar we like to play. I joke to myself all the time that I am a younger, American version of you.

      I live in Utah, a desert state in the USA. That is as close to pyramids as I'll get. Southern Utah has Native American city ruins. I can imagine some of them had temples or some thing of the sort. Time to go south and raise the dead!

    • Yeah, this Wiki is relatively "new" in terms of content, even thoughi t was started a few years ago. Work is slow, but there is pretty good progress overall.

      Heh, you're like my "Sith apprentice" :P

      I live at the foot of a very small mountain, which has a certain feel of mystery about it. We also have lots of old ruins discovered throughout town. Who knows, maybe some day I will find some source of power!

    • Didn't Raadec make it? I saw his profile here. It says he's a founder.

      Haha, oh yeah! I am willing to learn, my dark master! I serve thee!

      Haha, Bulgaria is a mysterious land. I bet dragons live there. :P

  • You wouldn't mind telling me what program you used to capture those in-game screenshots for Heretic, would you? I'd like to follow the same procedure for Episodes 4 and 5 if no one else is going to.

    Thanks in advanced. ;)

    • I could try it too - all it takes is a slight promotion to Bureaucrat, then I can make other people admins as I please :)

      In fact, I will check this thing out right now. Sadly, Raadec has been appearing less and less frequently, even on Quake Wiki. I guess he has plenty of RL stuff to occupy his time and energy.

      Update: Aaaaand it's done.

    • Ah, fantastic then!

      Obviously, I am all in favor of this and would love to join you in the adoption process however you'd like to go about it.

  • Good to see you active on this wiki again. As there is only one admin (Raadec), and he hasn't edited since October hence is inactive by the Wikia definition, how about adopting this wiki? I think somebody needs to...

      Loading editor
  • I will take the wiki to over 200 pages and then may go quiet for a bit because really I must get around to doing a piece on Rebel Moon Rising for my wiki.

    I need to find the rather mysterious Heretic II Hive Princess in-game because I can't find any info on her on the internet. I will also try for somemore screenshots of the monsters I haven't done yet. 

    You might think about doing a promote for the wiki now it's of a reasonable size; if you haven't done so already. 

      Loading editor
    • We haven't done any promoting yet, so if you wish to do it - go ahead :)

      I suppose you're referring to the Hive Princess from the Lair of the Mothers level? I think she only appears if you walk through a specific portal (which also triggers a cutscene).

    • You need to be admin to promote - it's a button on the Admin Dashboard.

  • Just been having some ideas about colour. Over the series there is no similar colour scheme. I think we should go with a white/grey colour scheme. One that will allow mostly black text.

    You’ve made some good edits. There’s a lot of backstory to the series, especially around Coras so it’ll be good to have everything together. I like your idea of removing the background off the horseman pictures. I think we’ll be reloading all the Hexen2 enemies like that. As for Hexen and Heretic, the sprites I found will be fine.

    I’m currently working on the Ettin page. I’ll have it finished within the hour and although it will be heavily based on the enemy pages on Quakewiki, it’d be good if we think about any changes we could make, if any. Take a look when it’s done.

    • Woohoo - 100 pages. Temple of Light is the 100th page created on this Wiki.

      Well, many of them are still underdeveloped, but it's still a nice round number :)

    • Yeh :)

      Chaos Serpents should applause our accomplishments.

  • I got Heretic II today and I think it's great. However, knowing I play Quake II and have not really done much other than that type of game, would you consider me a total weakling if I played Her2 on Normal?

    I like Her2 coz' it is diffferent but it still has that same great Quake feel. But it's quite difficult. Do you find it difficult still?

    • Cloud Fortress was a very nice looking hub.

      Morcalvin was a bit of push over. I just spammed Phoenix and Storm bows with Tome of Power. It fucked him up in seconds and then I realised what I was meant to do 2nd time around with the Tome of Power.

      It was actully a very short game, disapointingly so. You get to see a huge map of the world and only get to travel a short way down the middle. 4 Hubs might sound like a lot, but when I was expecting a lot more, I was shocked to be going after Morcalvin's blood so soon.

      I liked the ending, it is just like the ending of Sith, where you want to save the final boss, not kill him.

      My favourite game (too early to know for sure as I only played them all once) is probably Hex1.

      Thank you for mentioning it on Quakewiki and thus leading to me buying. HerHex is a superb series and is right up there with Dark Forces and Quake!

    • I'm always happy to recommend a good game. This series, in particular, is related to many great memories.

      Of all things I played as a kid, Her/Hex was one of the most significant. I can't even imagine how many hours I've spent on it :)

  • ... the Sheep!!! Is now uploaded, along with other monsters. I will try to get all the monster pics uploaded today. Have a look at em' and tell me if you think they're ok.

      Loading editor
    • But of course - the adventure just wouldn't be the same without... the Sheep!

      The pictures are just beautiful - excellent work :)

  • I used a code in Quake to remove my weapon to make screenshots better.

    It was someting something_ Drawmodel something

    Do you know it? I can't find it anywhere now.

      Loading editor
    • Yes, I know it.

      r_drawviewmodel 0

      And then you just re-type this with "1" in the end to re-enable the weapon model :)

      By the way, I think it's not possible to hide the HUD - even at max screen size, it still shows. I will examine the config file and see if there is any setting that might help.

        Loading editor
    • nah it's ok

      I will just cope with the hud. it's not really a big problem

      I've started getting shots of the hex2 beasties now. the only problems will be the horsemen, who never stop moving.

  • You may have notised that I've started to work on the wiki. Whilst editing one page can't really be called spending a lot of time on the wiki, I do intend to do more.

    How are you doing for time on this wikia?

    • Sounds like a good idea. People who have made an LP about any game must have some interest beyond playing it. There's a fine line between persuasive as possible and begging though.

      We could also have a look through the HerHex videos and see if any of them would fit as a video walkthrough on the wiki.

      I am going to have finished my homework by tomorrow and so I am going to do a lot of work on Hexen II monsters on Friday.

        Loading editor
    • Yes, that's exactly what I'm hoping for - besides, editing a Wiki is a lot easier than making walkthroughs ;)
