Legend of the Frozen Empire - Rune Coop mod



Legend of The Frozen Empire The day has come, it's 01.09.2014! As we promised we will release LOTFE on this day, which came true!

~~What is LOTFE?

Voy started the project originally, it was a small coop back in time. I (S.Boss) made a singleplayer mod years ago, but I stopped editing it( bugs, crashes, missing files... ). While playing Rune on a server, I met Voy who showed me his coop. I also showed him my unfinished singleplayer, or at least what remained from it... There were some correctly working maps, so I told Voy, I give them to him. I helped him with things like triggers or some fixes, later I decided to fix my SP maps to make them appropriate coop maps. Next, I joined him to finish the coop, I started editing totally new maps with Voy. Now, here we are with 40 coop maps ready to play for the Rune community, have fun!

- 40 Coop maps - New Textures - New Enemies - New Decorations - New Pickups - New Sounds - New Weapons - New Shields - New Foods - Secret Places - Ambient musics on the maps

RetroGOAT: Rune 1.0

Wizard takes a look at an old multiplayer favourite of his.

Rune is a hack 'n' slash melee action game developed by Humanhead Studios and released in 2001. It was very unique for its time and has since its release had a good multiplayer community. In 2012 it was re-released on Steam where it is now sold for €9.99. Games with similar fighting-systems include the Star Wars: Jedi Outcast series and Severance: Blade of Darkness.

The multiplayer community in Rune is divided between the classic Rune 1.0 and Rune: Halls of Valhalla, which was the stand-alone multiplayer version of the game. There are several differences between the gameplay of the multiplayer-modes in these games which have caused some to favour one over the other while some play both.

UPDATE: Rune has been re-released on GOG.com for the generous price of $4.99! Check it out at http://www.gog.com/game/rune_classic

I'm updating this blog.

The truth is...the layout of the old blog looked like shit. It was boring me to tears, and I think that's why I stayed away from the site for so long. In fact, I think I avoided taking real risks with this blog...and so I gave a pretty conservative approach to the content and layout of this site.

I've changed things around a little bit, and will be experimenting with the layout some more, so don't be surprised if you see more changes in the near future.

Visions of Power's Links Updated

Ok, guys....I've updated the links to your site, and I'll get around to fixing the other links around here. I've been lax about that, and need to fix it.

Spring Cleaning...

It's time for me to do some Spring Cleaning on this blog, and edit some of the links. I shall proceed forthwith.

GameSpy Multiplayer Shutting Down, Hundreds of Games at Risk

I have just been informed that the Master Servers for Rune are going to be shut down on May 31. If this is true, then I'm very concerned. This situation could place the entire Rune community in jeopardy, since Rune uses GameSpy (presumably). Please let this be a horrible rumor...


I can't get links to work, so you'll have to copy and paste that url. Sorry, folks...

I've Been Away For A Long Time...

I've been away for a very long time, but now I'm back. This is the longest period of time that I've gone without updating the blog. It's time to fix that...
