Tears of Rhi'ornin Documentation:

Tears was released on 2/8/01.


I started this colormap on 1/28/01 just before the Superbowl started. Fortunately the game sucked, allowing me time to keep working. The colormap was completed the next day, 1/29/01.

The "Dark" Mesh is based on that from Acts of Piety. The light mesh is similar to Desert, but with a couple less wights to account for a lot less water. The herons mesh is drawn almost 100% from the light mesh of The Great Divide, as are the tags for the statues. The dark ffa mesh is based on Ground Zero (dark), and the light ffa on Dead Man's Chest. Minor changes in each set are due to the nature of the map.

Fire note: At first I had no intention of allowing flame arrows on this map. I'm a firm believer in the non-flammable nature of sand. However, fire makes for more interesting games, and adds to strategy, so I waffled on the subject and allowed two meshes with flame arrows.

Brief about the map: Rhi'ornin was one of the great cities of the Trow. It was the first city to fall during the Trow-Oghre wars. Now all that remains are memories of the city, and imagined locations for its remains. The Trow remember that war with sadness, hence the name "Tears of Rhi'ornin".
