Current Version is: 5.22.12242012 (released on 12/24/12)


Hello, and welcome to the main topic for "Naferia's Reign: Invasion of the Dark Mistress", a recently developed modification for Duke Nukem 3D which incorporates a large number of features.

I would put the features list up for the topic, but it's way too long to fit in the topic, so you'll have to go to the link to check on it's stats. :\

Updated on 5/16/09:

Modification Synopsis
---------------------------------------

"1 year after the initial alien invasion in Duke Nukem 3D and the death of the newborn Alien Queen in the Atomic Edition, the murderous aliens still persist despite Duke's efforts to destroy them, but after their recent invasion of Washington D.C. is ruined and the President of the United State is saved by Duke Nukem himself(the events of "Duke it out in D.C."), their true leader finally shows her real colors, in a cataclysmic show of hands that will rock the foundation of Duke Nukem's entire life and principles. Even the great alien ass-kicker himself soon finds he is outmatched on his own, and will against his pride need all the help he can get to defeat this Alien Super-Queen before not only Earth, but all life in the universe are left prey to her evil natures!

So Duke, Are You Ready to Fend off the Invasion of Naferia, the Dark Mistress?"


Modification Taglines
---------------------------------------

* "No hero or villain, no matter how cool, powerful, talented, skilled or charismatic can do everything all by themselves. Even they eventually hit their limits, whether it be the limit of their patience or the limit of their skill, power and/or talent..."
* "Teamwork might feel like a drawback, but it's also the only way for even HIM to survive THIS war..."
* "He who is corrupt and She who is almighty have joined forces against you. It's only fair you have friends of your own..."
* "She Awaits You... But do you think she's all that's waiting for you??"


Description from EDuke32 Wiki's Modification Page:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What will come to be an alternate-universe Duke Nukem story revolving around a pivotal point in the history of Duke Nukem and the Aliens he has faced since the original Duke Nukem 3D. Duke is no longer working alone in his quest, as his enemies ramp up their power and allegiances substantially, as well as their intelligence to a point. Play as up to 15 different characters, with the ability to use multiple characters in the same party, unlike in Hexen[and more like a real RPG]. Monsters are more interactive and to a point more intelligent, able to grab items like health and armor, get damaged by slime and other hazards, and even pick up powerups to make them deadlier in combat. Find money laying around or get it out of your characters' ATM accounts, and use it to buy new items from shops or other NPCs. Voice Acting is also present.

What to Expect in this MOD [In the Future]
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Over 150 to 200 levels are planned to encompass the game's entire storyline, all of it will play out as a single unified 'episode', much like Doom 2/Hexen/Strife.
* A colorful cast of both playable and non-playable characters in Duke's world which will play their own roles in your quest for planetary/universal peace.
* Be warned: This mod is not a typical Duke Nukem style game as Duke has 'matured' over time and might be not 100% like the one you're used to. While he is still more or less a lot like his old badass one-liner cracking self, players will learn new facets about him(as well as his allies and enemies alike). This is an alternate universe however, so it's not technically part of the official Dukeverse, but it will give some interesting possible insights to a slightly more 'down to earth' Duke. :P
* A truckload of different possible endings will occur depending on the circumstances at the end of the game.
* A Fire Emblem-style support system for allowing playable characters to reveal more about themselves and create allyships for extra bonuses to their stats and overall playability.

Character Summaries:
----------------------------------------

Duke Nukem: A veteran of the Gulf War, former CIA agent, and currently a member of the EDF who is considered by many in the world and in the EDF to be the "Ultimate Alien Ass Kicker"!

Jack Walker: A 13 year old, fresh young face to combat, but quick at learning the ropes. His outlook to alien combat is a fresh breath of air compared to the tried and true methods by Duke and most EDF agents.

Bubsy Bobcat: An anthromorphic bobcat with wit, attitude, movie deals, tour-guide experience, and a sizable ego to boot. However he also has real experience combatting aliens and history-tampering vandels.

Ami Mizuno: The Sailor Senshi of Water and Ice. She is the strategist of the Sailor Senshi, and although she is not the most combat-heavy of them, she can hold her own against many enemies with surprising fortitude.

Higa Hakaisha: A man known only as the "Shadow Warrior" to most, he seeks the final vengence against a former employer who turned back on his promises and tried to rule the world through corruption and monopoly.

ESSence Margalan: The youngest son of a Triocladiar war hero of the Rigelatin conflicts. He seeks the truth about his father's final battles and his fate, and the true nature of both his older brother and queen.

Ted Maldoras: A young demolition expert by official trade, but a powerful and skilled crime-fighting vigilante off the record working with a group of others to protect his home of Santa Monica from threats, human or NOT human.

Lisa Bates: The rich young daughter of a fashion artist and a scientist, she inherits both her parents traits in spades, but also holds immense talent at fighting and leadership in her hands, leading a vast group of young crime-fighters.

Cybanis Morgandos: The son of the first Cycloidian to die at Duke Nukem's hands, he has trained himself to face the Ultimate Alien Ass Kicker in combat one day, but must get to the bottom of a conspiracy by his own race to smear his name first.

Christina Mitchell: A young and very energetic girl with immense physical strength and agility who likes to torment Triocladiar attempting to invade Los Angeles. She has a bigger record of 'crimes' on her plate in the LARD than Duke himself!

Paula Polestar: A teenage psychic-user with prior experience fighting aliens herself. She feels she must do her part in saving the world yet again, even if others think it too dangerous for her to intervene.

Lori Stephens: A shy, but extremely determined young lady with an unbreakable spirit, a firm belief in justice, and a very big stick! A great tragedy caused by the Triocladiar has forced her to show that even nice people can be deadly.

Minako Aino: The de-facto leader of the Sailor Senshi, she is likely the most combat-experienced of all of them, and while she is generally nice and perky to her friends, she can be a deadly threat to her enemies to not be messed with!

"The Mysterious Lady": This mysterious lady's intentions are unknown, but she can only be trouble, judging by that smirk of overwhelming confidence she has on her face.

Maken Shinkara: A young and very techno-savy woman who hides a dark share of secrets and losses, and a lot of grudges and dangerous ideas in her mind.

Decided to add the mod's synopsis to this topic. Not much of an update, but I feel it's time to start slowly revealing some of the mod's storyline. Maybe just a little, you know? :P

EDIT: Added some taglines for the mod, and copied the EDuke32 Wiki description to the topic. :P

Edited my last post with two more "Vauge" magazine covers.

Additionally, I just completed this magazine cover as well XD


EDIT: (A quick note: yes the Cruizer Shotgun here is just an homage to DukePlus, and I'm probably not going to use it in NR. Same with the Desert Eagle being one for Time-To-Kill. If it is okay to use the Cruizer, I might consider giving it to one of the characters or Duke, but I don't have plans on it personally. :P)
