Hexen Intro

The following text is the introduction to the game “Hexen”, in the PS1 version (see the video above). I listened to it so many times, I tried to write it down. Then I found the correct text on the internet and checked it. Here are my draft and the actual text, with my errors and voids in evidence.

My draft:

«Suspended within the fabric of Time and Space lies the Realm of the Chaos Sphere. […] the Serpent Riders, masters of the Sphere, have traveled the dimensions sowing (?) destruction. D’Sparil is dead. Korax, the second Rider, traveled to another world: the world of Hexen. Hexen, a world where […] has spawned corruption. Three powers rule as one in unholy trinity […]: the warlord Zedek, high captain of the Legion, he was judge and jury to all the people of Hexen; Traductus of the Church, holds their souls in captivity; and Menelkir, the sacrum master of the Arcanum, […] to spread fear and weakness among all their subjects. […] Today they will trade their […] powers with Korax […]. From the ranks of corruption, three heroes emerged […]: the destruction of the masters they once served. Their names will become a thing of legend. Baratus, Daedolon and Parias, must heal the world of Hexen for all time. […]».

Actual text:

«Suspended within the fabric of time and space lies the realm of the Chaos Sphere. For eons the Serpent Riders, masters of the sphere, have travelled the dimensions sowing destruction. D’Sparil is dead. Korax, the second rider, threatens another world: the world of Hexen. Hexen, a world where magic’s legacy has spawned corruption. Three powers rule as one unholy trinity, each led by a single man. The warlord Zedek, High Captain of the Legion is both judge and jury to all the peoples of Hexen. Traductus of the Church holds their souls in captivity… and Menelkir, the subtle master of the arcane, weaves his unholy magic to spread fear and weakness amongst all of their subjects. Restless in an uneasy alliance, these twisted leaders rule a twisted land, crushing absolutely all who would dare to oppose them. Today they will trade their worldly power with Korak for the dark gift of un-life and a mastery of forces more terrible than even their depraved minds could ever imagine. From the ranks of corruption, three heroes emerged, fighting for a single course: the destruction of the masters they once served. Their names will become a thing of legend. Baratus, Daedolon and Parias must heal the world of Hexen, for all time. The world must undergo a testing. A journey must begin.»
