1. I'm responsible for this one. The reason this project exists, is because I hated how the original game turned out (Hexen II). It only had hype from being an early retail game with out-of-the-box 3D support...and nothing else.
2. Yes and no. Since I am pretty much one of the only ones active on this (and some others) it's an on-and-off kind of matter. Other than what has submitted around Oct-Dec 08 there hasn't been any progress since. I want to reverse the deadness of this myself too, but time is sucking. I've still yet to reach the 'deathmatch test' stage where all of the items, projectiles and player classes are modeled and conceptualized. I briefly had a concept artist (Eriance) for some of these but he doesn't do males.
I may have to improvise for the Paladin (Barbaric muscley SMASHSMASH guy), Crusader (Bishounen pretty boy in shining armor) and Necromancer (Robed figure of ambiguous gender, race, etc. With a hood on you can't tell!!).
3. The english site broke mysteriously, japanese site works however both sites are just as bare as the other.
