EDIT: 04/24/2017/4:47 (Made a change in the mapinfo that has been required for quite some time. Now there is no longer any odd "hub" intermission between the two final maps and the rest of the experience. So Now you can get a Total Time for the whole thing without having to take two different elapsed time counters into account. This also means 2.4.0 versions of GZDOOM are now compatible with TOC.)
ToC: Levelset down here
WoC + ToC Compatibility patch down below. To launch TOC with WoC you need to either make a batch file or drag the files into GZdoom in this order: TOC.pk3 wrathofcronosr1_7.pk3 TOCWOC2.pk3

Description for the old release below here
Very well, now I feel like showing y'all some screenshots of the wad. I'll list what map a specific screenshot is from if you are curious.
Screenshots of Map 04 below.
Screenshots of map05 Below
Screenshot of Map07
Screenshot of map08
Screenshot of map10
I guess that'll do it for the screenshots. I wouldn't wanna ruin the surprise in some levels and whatnot by taking too many screenshots.
Now as you might see, my wad does have a few HeXen 2 like areas. Which was in fact intentional.
I always liked HeXen 2's variation to the different hubs, and so i felt like implementing that idea into my wad too.
Before anyone asks, no this does not take place in Thyrion (Where HeXen 2 takes place), this does in fact take place in different areas of Cronos (the world in HeXen 1).
Now I'm gonna pin point a few aspects this mod offers that most other HeXen wads don't seem to offer too much.
For starters, it does have a story, this WAD takes place between HeXen 1 and 2. Specifically it takes place a few years after the events of HeXen 1 and Deathkings of the Dark Citadel.
Korax is back in business again, due to some unknown entity resurrecting him. And since Korax is back, its up to Baratus, Parias or Daedolon to once again hunt Korax down.
Speaking of Korax, I did find a harder version of Korax on Realm667 (Except its called the "Inferno Demon" there). Thanks to whoever made it. So yeah don't expect yet another poor excuse for a boss Korax this time around.
This wad also features journals of dead people which you can read to get some not-too-useful background in the levels. While in some rare occasions these journals are related to the main story. Korax's resurrection and the Tower of Chaos that is.
You can activate the journals by walking over them.
You also gain access to a new weapon called the Cult Serpent Staff (Which I also got from realm667. Thanks to whoever made it!) However, the ammo for this weapon is very VERY scarce. So use it sparingly. (You won't get this weapon till hub 2 by the way).
This wad also has a fair amount of easter eggs in some journals for you guys 'n gals to figure out
And for those who do enjoy coop a LOT (Like I do). Then I'm gonna go right ahead and tell you that this wad supports up to 8 player coop.
This wad has 16 levels in total too.
I suppose that'll do it for info about this WAD. I do very much hope I didn't bore you to death >.>
