is Neil Manke, and he has brought with him a beautiful map of fine textures
and construction. Sssshh, please your indulgence while Neil sets the mood
for this excellent Quake Map.
ALBA (ANCIENT SCOTLAND)
year is 1303 A.D.
Scottish countryside is swarming with English soldiers and hideous monsters
in their league. The "Road to Inverurie" starts with you as an English
prisoner. Captured in Inverurie, you and your mortally wounded uncle are
being taken by wagon to the 'Castle Stalker'. There a mockery of justice
will be served and you will then be summarily executed for crimes against
the 'Crown of England'.
fugitive member of your severely decimated Clan, has managed to blow the
bridge. Your captors, finding their route blocked have stopped for the
night and, assuming you have nowheres to go, have carelessly left you unguarded.
Whilst they salivate over their food you make your move and escape into
the wilderness. A land you should know so well is now darkly sinister and
foreign. Your grandfather's old home is nearby and you set out to find
it in hopes of safe haven. If the English know of it also, your only alternative
shall be to backtrack and return home on... the "Road to Inverurie". -Neil
adventure is immersive and addictive, filled with haunting music, excitement
and a touch of humor, certain to entertain. From the moment you start your
bid for freedom its non stop action. For those of you that enjoy a hint
now and then Neil has also included some in case you get stuck. I made
it through with out them though I was tempted once or twice. Also if you
are new to downloading Quake maps from the internet, his installation instructions
are very easy to follow. Enjoy!
are lucky enough to reach Grandfather's home you can enjoy a fine rest
before pressing on to Inverurie. I hope thats a painting of Grandfather
on the wall and not you or you may never make it
example of the attention to detail and interesting textures Neil Manke
brings to Quake. No, the shield will not come off, too bad, because in
a few minutes you sure could use it.
