New Centurions Public Test

A helpful reader pointed out that Fantasoft has quietly posted a preview release (not a demo) of New Centurions, a sci-fi themed RPG with a classic look and interface. Not a Realmz sequel or expansion, Centurions is an all-new project by Tim Phillips, and will be a shareware release. No final date for release is given, and this preview is far from the complete game -- it has placeholder artwork and only three buildings. Here are the details from Fantasoft:

try out the character creation, upgrade and combat systems. Here
is your chance to chime in with your views now and maybe get
stuff changed before this game is finished.

will have many new surpises as well.

holder art used until we get the finished art done.
Some items may not work as you think they should. If you find
an item that does not work like it seems it should, copy the
name down and e-mail me the name so I can check into it.
The main goal of this DEMO is to get input from gamers on what
they like and dislike about the following aspects of the game:
Combat in general
This DEMO has only three buildings. One to repair your
equipment, one to repair and heal warriors and a WELL stocked
When you enter the open area to the South East you will see a
number of small pylons. Each has been scripted to send you into
a combat situation. Each battle is tougher as you progress to
the right and each can be repeated as many times as you like.
A real interest of mine is to try and balance the cost in
upgrade points for various attributes of your warriors. As you
gain Victory Points you also gain Upgrade Points which you can
spend to upgrade your warrior. Various attributes cost different
amounts of Upgrade Points to raise and I need to get a feel for

Other than that, have fun with the battles and send your
comments to Fantasoft1@aol.com. Here is your chance to chime
in and get things changed.
