00 - A Dire Message

Submitted by micromonkey
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
(Note this map is more of an opening cinematic rather than an actual map. It is the prologue to my Blood Elf Campaign)

Pushing through the darkness, the surviving Blood Elves of Silvermoon have reestablished their ownership of their ruined city and brought it back to its former glory. However the Scourge lays waste at its doorstep night and day, while their elven leaders quarrel within their sanctums. Many Blood Elves wonder when salvation or doom will finally take effect.

    This is mainly a long cinematic that starts the story off with a deslolated helpless theme. I'm uploading the next map in the series soon. Today hopefully

    Fix the author name and add map type. You are not going to grab much user's attention with that description; use pictures, tables, colours, etc. Take a look at the other maps on the Hive, the ones that are approved will have at least a decent map or else otherwise.

    I wish I knew how to make a custom Hive Icon -_-

    Other than that, I'm taking screens of the cinematic. I'm not necessarily new to this website but I'm new to uploading.

    I've seen maps with the custom icon like "Aeon of Fill in Blank ____" as the pic for the icon. I don't intend on changing up the map, because

    IT IS A CINEMATIC NOT A MAP

    So, how do I add that little banner of picture in place for the Hive Map Icon?

    MKAY I added a Map Preview.

    Now if you would plz play the map instead of judging the book by its cover =D

    Well, a even a brilliant book will be judged by the least cynical from it's cover. It's natural.
    Unless of course even if the book's cover and synopsis is really bad and the reader just so decides to open the worst book on the rack.

    You used the same screenshots twice. Delete one of them.
    Please isolate your screenshots into a different category like this:

    Place your screenshots here!


    Other than that, it looks fine.

    Erm, so you're implying that the story I'm setting itself is bad?

    I don't know how to separate categories either -_-

    No, I'm just saying judging a book by it's cover is done naturally like how people judge others with first impressions. First impressions don't always mean what the person is but people are still judged by it anyways.

    Use hidden tags. Use a hidden tags inside hidden tags to separate further.

    Well, the terrain was kinda poor especially outside Silvermoon city, which it would need some work on it, though it was already mentioned in the Moderator comments.
    The story wasn't bad at all except for some mistakes in the dialogues, and 2 words which were written wrong.
    Shattrath City was written as Shattrah, and Eredar was spelled Eredard, plus Kil'jaeden is a Man'ari Eredar.

    3/5. Mostly some shot ideas.
    They were invaded by undead but it was not that a problem to leave the capital undefended to go to Outland?
