When I Parsifal first heard the track I fell in love with it. Dka asked me for lyrics and vocals on the track and the track was already called Nightland.

The insomnia theme seemed to very naturally fit the track. All four contain a warm deep and hevay bass. It feels like you wanted to create a setting resembling a dark smokey underground scene. People raving till the morning dawn. Real nice groove. Tell us how you come to create this great sound.
Well the sound is really the sum of both our influences and backgrounds. Influences going from jazz and blues over new wave to italo disco, techno, house etc…. Basically all styles with very firm roots in the underground. Unconsiously I think we feel a responsabillity to respect that. You know that idea of we know you like it because you are here and we will not judge you for anything that happened before you walked in.

I think our personal relationship is a good example of that. We are so different from one another but yet we always end up drawing the same conclusions. The same is true for our music. I think that process makes our sound. Thus did the Days of Darkening come upon weary Mankind, forcing him ever deeper into the great Chasms opened up by the dying of the World. From Wisdom came Hubris as the sons of Man dealt and bargained with the Far Powers of the deepest space, and through their experiments unknowingly allowed the Powers of the Night entrance upon the Earth, long kept at bay by the electrically charged Atmosphere of the planet's exterior.
Now the Dark Powers can at last Destroy and Devour the souls of the living, circling the magma-lit world like sharks of the Aether. Man hath sought safety and respite in the building of mighty Redoubts, city-fortresses dug deep into the Earth, protecting him from the Dark and its minions as they encroach deeper upon the boundaries of man. One by one do the flickering lights of the Redoubts go out, as the Night creeps in to feed upon what lives in an Earth beyond saving. This is the Terrible and Distant future of the Night Land, the inextricable End of Man's works and the quieting of his essence, as the Dark Ones feast upon their prey, as they always have, and always will.
May the Powers of Good have Mercy on thy souls. The Night Land takes the mechanics of dwarf fortress and combines them with the titular setting of the Night Land, a novel by William Hope Hodgeson. The story depicts a bleak future millions of years from now, where the sun has burnt itself out and most of the planet has become uninhabitable save for its darkest depths, which teem with degenerated abominations of fearful strength, size, and cruelty.
There dwell the last millions of humanity, sheltered in an eight mile high Great Redoubt, containing over a hundred cities within, and without, the titanic and evil Dark Powers wait patiently for the Earth Current, the force which powers the barrier that keeps them at bay, to fail. And when that day comes, humanity will die by its own hand, as the citizens of the Great Redoubt commit mass suicide to avoid falling into the clutches of the Night, and having their very souls devoured by the spiritual predators within.
This fate cannot be avoided, only delayed. This mod allows you to take part in that dark eternity, though I must clarify this is not a reproduction, for obvious reasons. A few key changes have been made so as to make the setting 'playable' within the confines of the game. Consider it an alternate universe or something like that.
For example, instead of a single Great Redoubt, the lands are dotted with countless lesser Redoubts, housing a few hundred humans each. Each a nation unto themselves, they must survive as best they can in a world that actively schemes to kill them. They are the recommended race to play in fortress mode.
And secondly, this timeline of the Night Land is a slightly gentler one, in that leaving the protection of the Redoubts is no longer tantamount to suicide for all but the most epic of heroes, as it is in the original story. Aetherships, automobiles, biplanes, and motorbikes are all viable means of traveling through the blasted wastes, though they will only be found in the most advanced of civilizations.
Be warned, however, and I cannot stress this enough, that this is still the Night Land. There are things in this mod that can instantly kill you the very moment you step into their line of sight. Things of this nature will, however, be heralded by strange sounds and other portents, warning you that such a deadly beast is in the area. Should you encounter something suspicious in the Night Land, running away as fast as possible is probably your best choice.
For those wishing to play as other factions beyond humanity, the option is available to play as one of the bestial mutant tribes, universally strong but also universally primitive, or the more advanced kingdoms of abhumans and lesser men, possessing levels of technology second only to true mankind.

More detailed information on these races can be found on the mod page. Regardless of your choice, life will likely be short and unkind.
Good luck. NOTE: Abhumans are kind of wonky right now. Playing as metalworking civs is recommended until such a time as I am confident they will function as intended. That aside they are still technically playable, just missing some important gameplay mechanics while at the same time having access to things they should not. Possibly recommended if you like challenging yourself with a high mortality rate.
This mod comes with its own. It works exactly like installing and playing the vanilla game. Powered by the Earth Current, their bullets cleave through flesh like it was Sluren lard.

In the true canon, such weapons are ineffective against the most devastating of the Dark Powers and would only make them angry, hastening humanity's doom. In this mod, that is not the case. Such devices will be found in the hands of most human civs along with the abhuman Half Men and the terrifyingly intelligent Kiln Giants. An offshoot of the Road Builders and in the official canon what the Road Builders will become a few million years after their golden age , they are ruled by the supposedly wise and compassionate Cynosures, though these beings have also utterly forsaken their humanity in favor of benign apathy.
Indeed, it was the experiments of the Cynosures that allowed the Pneumavores, soul eaters, to break through the atmosphere and doom the planet. The Ridden are now husks controlled by Pneumavores, who slay victims to grant their lesser kindred material bodies. Unlike the Saiitii Hosts, nothing of the original mind remains, only a cunning imitator. There is a short cooldown to this, but fight these foes with caution.
Lesser animated corpse style Ridden should be easier to handle. These foes can serve as a stand-in for the House of Silence. Some time circa 23 million years AD, a man known as Scyrr will embrace the dark powers and devise, or be gifted, a means to convert humans into things more fitting the cruel dominion of the Night Land. Though in the true timeline he will be overthrown, in this case the Scyrrites have taken hold and constructed redoubts of their own. This truly terrifying enemy combines the cunning and power of the Night Land with stolen metals and technology from humanity, making them a rare and cunning foe that must be stopped at all costs.
Abhumans with large claws and knotted pink skin. Just another of many freaks with the power to tear a human limb from limb, but added nonetheless. One of the expanded universe stories notes that the deep portions of the earth have experienced a massive boom in biodiversity as many strange creatures evolve to thrive in boiling water and acidic seas at the darkest depths of the surviving oceans. So then I thought, what if there were creatures who also survived in the earth's mantle itself?
And so now you can find giant fish with bones of silicone and boiling blood swimming in the deepest depths of the molten earth. Not all of them are confined to the magma, however. As always, let me know if you feel something is wrong or broken. Like Rufous Men in that they can work metal, but sneakier. Focuses on full offense instead of Watcher-type tactics and has ab-natural psychic powers. Only the size of an elephant, but possessed of a peculiar cunning, they form cruel societies of smiths and forges deep below the earth, pumping out crude but effective siege engines to bring ruin upon mankind.
In ancient days, before the sun went out, there was known to be a particular breed of fungus that could infest and corrupt the minds of victims. Over time, it has evolved with the Night Land, and formed its own empire out of sculpted forests. Invader civ, not playable. This is experimental and I may change it.
Saiitii is a sort of infectious aetheric fungus that can reanimate corpses into malevolent ghouls. A Saiitii host is one who has traded away their humanity to act as a conduit for Saiitii, and is given both immortality and vast legions of undead in return. These are once-humans who have been murdered and flayed, their skin surgically grafted over an abhuman infiltrator. They function as vampires, but I intend to expand on them later. In Evil areas, where Pneumavores are found, you have a rare chance of finding these beings.
They will bless the worthy, or lucky, with temporary protection from soul Destruction and thus a mortal will gain the strength to kill the soul eating demons of those tainted lands, for a time. Savage tribal types will no longer have soldier tiles. Manshonyaggers should now be found only in said biomes, and later other relics of prior ages may be found here.
The Watchers are, without question, very very dangerous and will absolutely murder most of the population in worldgen if you st the megabeast setting too high. Much like how they function in the book, Watchers cease movement upon encountering a settlement, besieging it. The power of the Watchers is in their size and terrible ab-natural abilities. Watchers will possess and assume control of all feral Night creatures that wander onto the map, allowing the Outer Powers to possess them and in this way, slowly build an army of augmented wildlife that it will constantly send at your fortress.
In addition, it can dizzy and confuse soldiers using its psychic energies, and manifest spheres of flame to attack them directly. Watchers are essentially one-man invasions, capable of turning the very ecosystem into a weapon. Fixed Giants are semimegabeasts work the same, but lack the telepathic and fiery defenses of true Watchers. These are mechanical constructs dating back millions of years, with an inscrutable plan for humanity's future.
They are cruel, patient, and often mad, though they are also by their nature tenuous allies to humanity, though they should not be trusted. Certain redoubts will be ruled by manshonyaggers and their nanotechne-enhanced human serfs, while others will use tame manshonyaggers as beasts of war.
In addition, some larger ones are semimegabeasts, attacking abhuman settlements to protect mankind, or attacking human settlements to prune the weakness out of humanity. Compartilhar no Facebook Compartilhar no Twitter. Diva Leaves Me In My Loneliness Thalarion.
