Dragon's Claw is an old Halloween mission that has flown under my radar for several years. It recently got a facelift by the author, well timed for this year's Halloween. Having not played the original I cannot comment on what was improved, but the mission certainly shows its age in the relative simplicity of its geometry, and lack of visual embellishment. Despite this however, the atmosphere of the Plague Ward where the mission takes place certainly fits right in for Halloween as it reeks of sadness and with lamentatious ghosts and decrepit buildings. What little story there is to discover does well at conveying the sad fates of the inhabitants. The main negative is that the mission is just simply too short, it barely has time to pick up steam before all the objectives are ticked off and it's time to head home. It's still certainly worth a play through if you're looking for a creepy little FM with good atmosphere.
This mission is very old, like 2011 old. The mission was originally built for the Halloween contest, hence its shortness. But there was a very bad show stopper of a bug in the tavern. So 2 days before Halloween 2020 I thought what the hell, lets see if I can fix this bug and any other mapping bugs or old techniques. As it been 9yrs, it turned out there was quite a number of bugs. But I fixed them all, including making a new Ghost Ai skin for other mappers to use :-)
