SoN will kick your ass...
About a year ago, when the Clan Plaid gang got bored with beating Shadow of the Mountain on Legendary with no zerks, the original Nightmare plugin was born. Now comes the next evolution of pure evil fun, Son of Nightmare.
While the original Nightmare plugin was simply tweaks to the dark units, making the levels more difficult to beat yet retaining the same scripting, SoN has modified scripting for nine levels AND one 'new' level.
But be warned, winning on legendary will not be easy. It will take skill, teamwork and in some cases a bit of luck.
Drag the file 'SoN.gor' into your Myth TFL plugins folder and fire up Myth. Then start a net game
(on b.net - haha - or tcp/ip). You will need to do the 'space bar' trick to enable the new 'SoN' levels.
When hosting, go to the game option screen. Enable the SoN.gor plugin screen, click in the 'Name' field,
then hold down the space bar. While holding down the space bar, click on the Single Player Levels checkbox
to enable (or click twice to disable and enable it). You should then see the SoN versions of the
solo levels and the new, Training Nightmare SoN level. Select the one you want to try and have at it.
Or join a SoN game with someone that already has the levels loaded. Once you play a level, you
will not have to do the trick for that level again. Also, winning a level will take you to the next SoN

NOTE: You can play the non SoN versions of the levels. This will make it very similar to the original Nightmare plugin. Just enable SoN.gor, then choose a non SoN level.

If you are unfamiliar with the concept of Nightmare and SoN, the idea of Nightmare was to make Myth: The Fallen Lords solo maps more difficult. In general, heroic should play similar to legendary, and legendary be a 'step beyond'. Special attention was given to Shadow because it had always been a favorite of mine. 'Dark' archers and dwarves were cranked up a bit, making it very difficult to beat. SoN takes this another step. Units are more or less the same as in Nightmare, but I decided to tweak some scripting to make things more interesting/difficult. Also, SoN contains my first attempt at scripting a 'new' level, Training Nightmare. Training Nightmare has a few unique items, including...
Drunk Bob, Chikatilo for pointing a total newbie in the right direction. El Bastard for his scripting 'help'. Thanks for not making me feel like a total idiot with my questions. (:
Wang Dang Doodle, Ephemeris and Kalli for helping me push Shadow to the extreme. MuffinHead, Ramses II and everyone else that helped with unit names and flavor texts. The rest of Clan Plaid for their testing and suggestions.
