If you're a fan of chess, this would be a good map to add to your collection. It's a simple concept, this map. A large chess board with pieces on grassy land, with some rocks here and there and a tree in the corner. But it's effective. What makes for an even more interesting duel is that all of the pieces are destructable. Yay! Funny thing happened when I was destroying everything - one piece exploded and I found myself staring at this large symbol, with what appears to be stained glass all over it. Just jump right back in and you're back to the board again. Oh, and if you happen to be taunting someone from the edge of one of the walls and you fall (like I so often do), no worries - you'll reappear on the board again, but it will take 25 HP off.
The music was lovely and I was surprised to find that it's a string tribute to Nine Inch Nails. The insipiration for this map came from the game "American McGee's Alice". I've always loved that game and I would really, really love to see Daku create an FFA map with textures from that game. Like, a big Alice world - that would be amazing. :D FPS in this duel map isn't an issue at all. Now ready for the best part? This is Daku's first map. :) Oh, and the levelshot - quite impressive. That was made by Aeris. Wonderful job. I really can't wait to see what else Daku produces.

*************************** JEDI ACADEMY MODIFICATION *************************** Title : A Duel of Two Kings Author : Kyuketsuki Daku E-Mail : firstname.lastname@example.org Website : www.darkcrusaders.net File Name : duel_chess.pk3 File Size : 5,554 KB Date Released : 01-07-2004 Description : I decided not long ago that I wanted to pick up mapping. So, I sought inspiration for my first map. I was talking to a friend one day and he mentioned a chess level in "American McGee's Alice", a really awesome game that everyone should play. I thought it'd make an excellent duel map, so I got started. After a good while of work, it finally started to take shape and I ended up with what you see here. Enjoy. Credits : I most definitely wouldn't have gotten through this project without the help of a few friends. I need to thank SanosuKe for answering the multitude of Radiant questions I had. He was always there when I needed a bit of help. Lil Killa helped answer some of my noobular questions, too. Also, that ultra-nifty Levelshot was made by my good buddy Aeris. I'd also like to throw out thanks to Chen're and Wolf for helping me out with various things. Thanks, all of you. * Play Information * New Sounds : YES (music "The Fragile" from The String Tribute to Nine Inch Nails) New Objects : YES New Textures : YES (various textures from "American McGee's Alice") Supported Game Types: Duel, Power Duel, FFA, TFFA Bot Routes/Support : Yes * How to install * Place the duel_chess.pk3 in GameData\base in your game directory, and it will become selectable among the usual Multiplayer maps. * Copyright / Permissions * THIS MODIFICATION IS NOT MADE, DISTRIBUTED, OR SUPPORTED BY ACTIVISION, RAVEN, OR LUCASARTS ENTERTAINMENT COMPANY LLC.
