The Heretic Fortress (THF)
a multiplayer mod

    Maps


Taken from the old "The Heretic Fortress" site:

"T H F is a multiplayer mod for Heretic II that focus on teamplay.  It takes place in a fantasy world and features 9 player classes, a unique leveling system, 4 mission types, 17 different player models, advanced bot support, over 40 different weapons and spells, and over 60 maps."

The last version of THF was released in 2004.  Given the major advances in gaming since Heretic II's release in 1998, the THF crew tapped into a kind of gameplay that stands the test of time.  A small, but dedicated community assemble to "Hold the Fortress" (htf), "Capture the Light" (ctl), "Get Excalibur" (gex) and "Protect King Arthur" (pka).  Gaming sessions tend to last a few hours every Sunday evening.

This link will take you to the Heretic II threads on Raven-games.com where you can download everything needed for THF (well, minus Heretic II itself) -- a 200MB package, which includes most of my orginal maps below (the rest, including others' maps I've converted, are on my updates page).  A number of other H2 mods and single-player games from over the years are available, too.  Just ask!

Battle for Katlit'k Crest
gex-crest - released Oct 2009

A small map for the good ol' days' sake.  Made it in a few hours.  Perfect for 2 on 2.

A small map featuring a double-spiral staircase.

Ottomon Fortress
pka-desert - released Jun 2006

The males must guide the king from a small rowboat outside the fort to an elevated structure in the center, by either releasing a drawbridge or jumping on the roof.

Pitfalls and Ledges
htf-ledges - released Oct 2005

Originally intended for Siege (a different H2 mod), this "Hold the Fortress" map has odd gameplay.

Mystic Tree Temple at Dusk
htf-zen - released Jun 2004

A small "Hold the Fortress" map.  Good for 2 on 2.

Whirlpool
pka-whirlpool - released May 2003
gex-whirlpool - released Mar 2012

Features a windmill, a waterwheel and a whirlpool.

Pyramids of the King
pka-pyramid - released Aug 2000

Arguably my best THF map.  Orginally, it was designed with the possibility of player-respawn (in the older versions of THF), but thankfully, it also plays well when killed players remain dead for each round.

The Underground
htf-grotto - released Jan 2000

An early "Hold the Fortress" map.  Average playability.

Jungle Bases
ctl-waterfall - released Jan 2000

Don't fall in the water!
While this wasn't actually my first THF map, it's the first that made it into the early official releases of the mod.  Based off a single player map I made.
