Gothic 2 - Velaya Mod English Release

by Dhruin, 2009-12-21 21:24:06

This is from a week back but better late than never.  An English translation of the well-known Gothic II + NotR mod Velaya: Tale of a Warrior has been released.  The mod offers around 40 hours of gameplay across four chapters and an altered Khorinis.  The English installation is a little tricky, so make sure you read the instructions.  Here's the blurb:

Velaya - Tale of a Warrior is a German modification that tells the story of a young woman (known from Gothic 1 ), who makes her way around Khorinis, shortly after the nameless hero and his companions left the island. A lot has changed in the meantime and the land is still in need of a hero. Or heroine?

But this is not Velaya's problem at the moment. Right now she is busy rejecting Dar, probably the most unpleasant mercenary on Onar's farm. Their dispute ends after a brief fight... on the planks of the tavern. Dar has to pay a penalty to Torlof, for beating up a helpless woman, but this is not enough for Velaya. She wants to get back at the weedhead her way. And soon she won't be as helpless as everyone thinks she is...

Beating up Dar will only be the first step. There is a lot more chauvinism to face. For the men of Khorinis it's not always easy to get used to a female adventurer. But they will soon learn to respect the ambitious woman and value her deeds.
