These are truly exciting times for me! I love everything you are doing and will be consider this to be my headcanon from now on. I just love how you reconcile old and new Warcraft. From art, to lore, to music to everthing!

My only concern is performance. My PC is old but ran Reforged relatively well. If my PC ran Reforged, can I expect Chronicles to run as well as the base game?

What is the status on this project?

Someone said it has been stalled for a couple of months.

On a side: I love stuff like this.

Great work, really love it. Recently started playing custom maps again and I don't regret playing this one at all! But is there any hope to get the Alliance campaign too :D ?
