Among The Shadows II: The Lava Planet 4Rated 4 Death Stars Oton (fish) Ribic Kyle Katarn is hired to search the mysterious cargo of a wrecked Imperial freighter on a remote and inhospitable volcanic planet. But reaching the destination system inconspicuously with the Moldy Crow is impossible, and Katarn will first need to head to Nar Shaddaa to find a smuggler whose ship will hopefully be ignored by the dangerous Imperial patrols...
Among the Shadows: Fortress Quadrigon 4Rated 4 Death Stars Oton (fish) Ribic A recent level, but without a doubt, this one is an instant winner. For starters, the story behind it is worth reading. The design is wonderful, some of the best I've seen. It's practically brimming with new features, and this level has one of the best endings, period. Throw in detailed lighting, a realistic layout, and challenging puzzles and you will soon see why this level deserves to be ranked among the best DF levels.
Assassinate Darth Vader 5Rated 5 Death Stars Jereth Kok A level set inside a Victory Star Destroyer where you must find and assassinate Darth Vader before planting a sequencer charge, then escape.
Assasssination on Nar Shaddaa - Boba Fett Episode I 5Rated 5 Death Stars Barry Brien It's a massive level, with some of the most consistently detailed and complex architecture ever attempted in a DF level. The new weapon kicks ass, and the many new custom components look fabulous. It poses a huge challenge too, mainly because of the ingenious shop system: you don't find items lying around, but you have to buy them. This forces you to be careful about what you buy, as once you go beyond certain areas you won't have access to the shops for some time. It's huge, detailed, and in many ways revolutionary. Effects that were huge in other levels have been used as minor details (like the ladder). This deserves to be in the HoF, if only for the obvious care for detail that has gone into it.

Assault Fortress Dantooine 5Rated 5 Death Stars David Ralph,David Lovejoy Some time ago Fortress Dantooine had to be evacuated after a crushing Imperial attack. Fortunately we got most of the people out. How ever we had to leave behind some things that were too valuable to take out at the time. The empire has built a new facility next to the ruins of the fortress. Some rebel spies still hiding out at the ruins have located the data for the newest Battle Moon the empire is planning to construct. Smaller than a Death Star but non the less deadly to have on the loose. Although this Battle Moon has no super laser like a Death Star. It is protected by a powerful computer network which controls all aspects of defense, both externally and internally. We need to analyze the data to find a way to breach the computer security.
Asteroid 5Rated 5 Death Stars Eric Pauker We have just discovered an asteroid entering the Korrar system. Normally this would not be of any concern to us, but our probes have recorded Imperial supply ships and TIE fighters near the asteroid and some man-made structures on the surface.

I have arranged for one of our operatives to smuggle you aboard a small cargo ship that delivers supplies to the asteroid. You will be hidden in the cargo hold until the ship docks. We do know there is a large fuel dump somewhere on the asteroid. Destroying the dump should help create enough confusion to help us with our surprise attack. Good luck Kyle
Back to Yavin 5Rated 5 Death Stars Peter Klassen After the Battle of Yavin, the Rebels have been driven away from their base and pursued across the galaxy. The fleet has been split and a part of the Rebels built a new base on the ice planet Hoth. However, during the evacuation General Jan Dodonna has constructed a data tape containing the space charts of all the future Rebel Fleet locations. Every main ship commander got only his own destination coordinates. There has been only one copy made for the assistant of Dodonna, Whix Gardine. But Whix has been missed the last possibility of escape and has been seized by the Imperial Forces. However, he managed to hide the tape somewhere on the base. As the Empire seems to build an own base on Yavin, the Alliance cannot afford the possibility of discovery of the tape to exist. As they also cannot afford to draw attention, they hire Kyle Katarn, a mercenary who helped to get the technical readouts of the Death Star.
Betrayed 4Rated 4 Death Stars John Johnson Lieutenant Commander Brit Dannon has just been given a new assignment on the Moonbase, a relatively insignificant Republic Supply and Transfer Station some distance from the Imperial Border. The station itself holds little tactical advantage, and is not considered a primary target fot Imperial attack. It is staffed by about 300 personnel and droids at all times. The station is well known to anyone who cares to know of it, though most Republic personnel still know little of its existance beyond their own personal contact with the facility. Rumors abound that the Empire has some interest in the base, but you can't help but wonder what interest would the Moonbase have for anyone. The answers lie ahead.
Beyond Glory 5Rated 5 Death Stars Kevin Buscemi Kyle Katarn must aid in the destruction of yet another Imperial super-weapon. The madman who designed it, however, has no intention of letting his prized creation be eliminated.
Beyond Glory 2: In Dying Light 5Rated 5 Death Stars Kevin Buscemi The assault on the SunKiller platform was a complete success. Minutes after you lowered the energy shield, Alliance fighters moved in, damaging the platform beyond repair. The Emperor, needless to say, was not pleased. He summoned Senj Thirtrae who survived the attack despite substantial damage to the Lentii base) to Imperial City for a face-to-face meeting. Rebel spies have determined that after a mild scolding for his funneling of resources, Thirtrae was reassigned to a new post: a high-security construction facility. They are going to rebuild the SunKiller, and destroying a second one will not be nearly as easy as the first. Now Katarn must take part in a complex operation at Thirtrae's mercenary-guarded estate; the ultimate goal being the elimination of the madman himself.
Boba Fett's Revenge 5Rated 5 Death Stars Randy Greene Kyle is ambushed by Boba Fett and is captured by Magra, a local Hutt crime lord. Kyle must escape from his imprisonment by the Hutts and take down Boba Fett.
Cloudspear: Part I - The Ghosts of Takyr 5Rated 5 Death Stars Kevin Buscemi Pirates from the planet Takyr have been getting more and more aggresively lately. They've already hit a number of our supply convoys and it's going to get worse with time. Some local crime boss is getting a bit too ambitious for our liking. The New Republic would love take him out, but nobody seems to know where to find him. I do have one lead, that he hides at a place called Cloudspear, but it's not going to be easy looking into it.

Some of my sources are convinced that Cloudspear is somehow connected to the Othket Corporation. Othket headquarters is somewhere in the ruins of Deppen City. If Cloudspear exists, I'll find some information on it in the company record archive. The complex is crawling with pirate and mercenearies, I'd rather not stick around any longer than I have to...
Condition Red 5Rated 5 Death Stars Peter Klassen, Jereth Kok, Steve Miller Released near the end of the so-called Golden Age of Dark Forces (late 1997) this level was an instant classic. Two great minds, Jereth Kok and Peter Klassen, collaborated on their final project, a slam-bang action movie version of a Dark Forces level. This level created an unrelenting pace, and so much yummy eye candy!

To my knowledge, there has never been (and probably never will be) as many VUE animations as in this level. At times you wanted to watch the battle outside, but no! The stations defenses were not going to activate themselves! The great part of all the VUEs were that they were all there to hammer it home to the player that they were in some serious, SERIOUS trouble, and that things were only getting worse. Expertly crafted cutscenes by Peter Klassen completed this thrilling project.

This level, like Mt. Kurek, set new standards in terms of just what can be achieved in the DF world. Condition Red had a lot of excellent new features like the running rebel troops, the flashing red alarm, and of course the space battle the results in a huge hold being torn in the side of the base and Kyle being sucked out into space.

Coober Revisited 4Rated 4 Death Stars Fish (Oton Ribic) Kyle realizes that the Coober incident was caused by the Empires spacetime distortion experiments
Coruscant - The Imperial Capital 4Rated 4 Death Stars Ryan Bickhart The Empire is spreading its vast fleet throughout the galaxy in an effort to locate and destroy the Rebel Alliance. Several Imperial task forces have come dangerously close to locating the main strongholds of the Rebellion. The only hope to aviod destruction unitl new alliances can be forged is to obtain the Imperial Fleet deployment plans. These encoded plans are located in the Imperial Military headquarters Building in Coruscant City. Unfortunately, the Emperor has little trust in his conventional military leaders. Only the I.S.O, the Imperial Security Agency that is personally loyal to Palpatine has the decoding equipment necessary to view the plans.

You, Kyle Katarn, will be dropped off on the edge of the city. Work your way through the Imperial-infested capital to the Military Headquarters building and steal the NAVA CARD with the encoded plans. Continue to the I.S.O BUILDING-a virtual fortress. Breach the security rings and get to the top of the tower where the decoding equipment is located.Decode the NAVA CARD onto a magnetic DATATAPE and get the tape and yourself to the base of the tower for pickup by Jan.
Critak Moon: The Imperial Outpost 4Rated 4 Death Stars Llyren Adwyr Immediately before his capture and transportation to Orinackra, Crix Madine inscribed information to a computer card. The data contained technical statistics about the Dark Troopers' weapons and attack strategies. This information is vital to the Alliance, because it shows the weaknesses and strengths of the Dark Troopers and will help our fighters immensely in first-person combat with these machines. You retrieved the card from Madine at a secret meeting. However, the Imperials, suspicious of the secretive activities of Madine, raided the remote base where you met with Madine. While he was taken to the high-security Detention Center on the planet Orinackra, you and Jan were taken to the Imperial Outpost on Critak Moon, in the Delari System. This remote moon is controlled by the outpost, which, while not high security, is a powerful computing station. Your objectives are as follows: Once you break out of your cell, using a mine that your dead cell guard has so thought- fully provided, you must take the card from the decoding lab before it is hacked, for its use would be lost if the Imperials find out how much we know about the Dark Trooper. Then you must rescue Jan from her cell, after finding the controls to shut off the power cell door locks. Finally you must get to the hangar, where your ship awaits for your escape. Good luck, and may the Force be with you.

Desalinization Plant 4Rated 4 Death Stars T. Stallings It is well-known that Imperial environmental policy leaves a lot to be desired. Nowhere is this more evident than on the supply moons of Coruscant. A hit on the desalinization plant there will not only cripple Imperial toilets for a (too brief) period, but it will also strike a blow for environmental protection, a strong recruitment tool. The plant is well-guarded, but there are alternatives to fighting
Destroy Imperial Supply Depot 4Rated 4 Death Stars Karl Felgate Kyle must infiltrate an imperial supply depot and set a sequencer charge to blow the whole facility up.
Discovery at Ironfort 5Rated 5 Death Stars Kevin Buscemi Ironfort, an aging mining colony in a backwater star system, has never been of much strategic interest to either the Empire nor the Rebel Alliance. Circumstances have changed, however. Deep beneath the surface, an ancient, and technologically advanced, alien installation has been discovered intact. In more peaceful times, this find would be considered priceless for its historical value. Sadly, this is a time for war, not archeology.

Upon hearing of the discovery, Imperial forces have taken control of Ironfort and, more importantly, the mines in which the structure is located. So far, they have been unable to gain access to the installation's lower level due to an usually powerful containment field. It is unknown what treasures or weaponry are stored within, but the Alliance can not afford to allow anything of value to fall into Imperial hands. Your mission is to find a way past the field, discover what is held there, and destroy the building. An explosive charge planted on two plasma conversion computers will get the job done. Some important questions are waiting to be answered, though. Why would a forgotten alien race bury such a building deep underground? More intriguingly; why would they want to keepanyone from entering the lower level?

You'll be droped off near the entrance to one of the old massassi temples, our informants tell us that this is the safest way to approach them. There is an old mine under the temple that they are in. We think they've found some new metal that is impervious to blaster fire, at least that's what our enformants say. Be prepared for anything, and may the force be with you.
Future Present - Part 2 4Rated 4 Death Stars Rick Horack Your mision, should you decide to except it, is to go to Coruscant to contact a slicer by the name of Gant. He says he knows the location of Tyco Daralyn, your "old friend". We have also heard that Gant may have be taken captive by the Imperials. If this is true, you must break him out! The prison force fields need to be turned off for you to enter there. Once inside, get Gant out of the detention center, and escape to the top of the prison where I'll pick you up. If you are caught or killed, the New Republic will disavow any knowledge of your actions, sell all your valuables and try on all your cloths. Have a nice day!

Mt. Kurek 5Rated 5 Death Stars Jeff Walters Mt. Kurek was the great divide in DF editing. There was before Kurek, and after Kurek. Kurek was the death of the common level. People couldn't get by with just throwing together an 'infiltrate and destroy/rescue/capture' level anymore. Every level needed something special to get noticed. Kurek raised the bar.

Prelude to Harkov Defection 5Rated 5 Death Stars Matthias von Herrmann Imperial Admiral Harkov wishes to defect to the Rebel Alliance. Obviously we expect a trap, but if his wishes are true it would be a significant boost to our efforts. Admiral Harkov possesses a large amount of information on the Imperial navy. As a testament to his good faith, he will give us tapes on his defection plans. They are located on Nar Shaddaa, the vertical city. As you know the Imperials control a sector of this city, and Harkov is in charge of a section of said sector. The tapes are there with one of Harkov's captains, Captain Convegade. We will drop you off in one of the neutral sectors of Nar Shaddaa. Work your way into the Imperial sector, and get to Captain Convegade as well as those tapes. I'll meet you on the roof. Harkov has instructed his men not to fire on you, but be careful as not all the Imperials serve under Harkov. Also Lord Vader, apparently annoyed by your escape at Outpost D-42, has hired bounty hunters to look for you. Watch out for them as you make your way through the neutral sectors

Katarn, who got no new jobs from the Rebels since the Dark Forces conflict, and who got a chance to make peace with his former rival Jabba couldn't afford to reject it. Though knowing that Solo has sympacy with the Rebels, little does Kyle know that he is not a scoundrel. So he accepts the job...
