Journey Into Fear is a RPG, DiabloII-like project that Im working on for more than 2 years. It combines several special features:
Player Classes
Diablo II Skills
Quests, NPCs
Experience system
Unique monsters with health/name bars
Map randomization
Diablo Armor and Weapons

Originally this project was using my RPG system that was rather rough - its last version is here - https://www.dropbox.com/s/x8q27c7ope0bd ... .wad?raw=1

Today it uses a much more developed RPG system, last version is here https://www.dropbox.com/s/pq9ra7awt7jef ... .wad?raw=1

...I don't need any help, at least not for now. It is true that there is a LOT to do, so much that it is likely that sometime in the future I will ask for a help. But for now, I can manage myself.

Im working on a new map atm. When its finished, I will focus on rebalancing monsters.

Maps are the most troublesome part, since Im only one person and I still have like 10 maps to do. So when I ask for a help, it will most likely be about maps. Almost all the maps in this project follow some strict rules, which can slow the mapper down a bit, so Im not sure when will I finish a new version.

A new map has been finished. But since my mapping skills are not perfect and Im slow...well to put it bluntly, if anyone would like to map for this project, send me a Private Message.

I've made some monster modifications and another map is almost finished. When I make two more maps (which will most likely take a LOT of time, since I dont have any plan for one of them yet), I will upload the new version. If everything goes well, you can expect:
Normal maps 1-4 finished
Optional maps 1-4 finished
One more NPC being able to talk
Some new quest(s)

Still far from the planned full version, which will (hopefully) have:
11 Normal maps
9 Optional maps
8 Quests
7 NPCs

And as I said before, if anyone would like to help me with mapping, send me a Private Message and I will explain all the details about the maps I need.

I've made some progress. Two new maps finished and one old one improved. Several new monsters added and some old ones improved.

Now I will focus on the last map I need to have to release a new version.
Then, there will be no empty space between the map01 and map07. And since there is a miniboss in the map07, I could call it a demo version then.
In the meantime, here are some spoilers:

My PC was being repaired for some time and it will take long before I make the map05, so here is what I've got so far - https://www.dropbox.com/s/96wbbza4y1r5m ... 5.wad?dl=0

After a very long break, Im back mapping for this project. Since I find it impossible to find any ideas for the map05, I have started making map11 instead. It is going to be a very large map, consisting mostly of remakes of some Heretic/Hexen/Doom1/Doom2 maps, with the idea of player having to finish all of them in order to unlock the final door (something like the Shadow Wood Hub from Hexen). Unlike my failed effort for the map05, here I know exactly what to do, so Im like 75% sure I will manage to make this map. Also, if anyone has played this project-so-far, please give some feedback if you have anything to criticize (besides the unfinished/broken NPCs, which Im going to finish later)

Sorry guys for taking position of devil's advocate but when you are using resources that are private property should you not try to contact the owner of the stuff and have the situation clear? I mean just for the sake of being sure there is no problem and shit like this does not happen?

1. Fair use. Blizzard is not losing sales from this. It's just a Doom mod.

2. They'd probably say yes anyways if you told them it's just a Doom mod, if they ever do contact you back.

Shit like what? Nothing happened. A troll came in and took a big shit on this thread. And we're still feeding them by continuing to discuss copyright.

Don't listen to that troll OP. Continue your work, you are not profiting off of this mod so it is fair game.

I have added some doom2 monsters and ammo so its playable as a standard map now.
So now, in matter of maps, this project is 50% finished now (although I may re-edit some previous maps, such as the map01 or map03 (they both are rather...dull)

When I read the title, I was expecting something horror-themed! :o

It looks pretty nice though, except for the ComicSans in the second screenshot. ComicSans is a design faux pas.

It is the upcoming story of this project that is going to be a horror - not the horror for the player, but for the character he is playing as, because
the more he ventures into the enemy's lair, the more afraid he/she gets, wondering whether isn't this Journey pointless.

Also, I have started working on a new map.
