A Growing Darkness

188769-61ed7f4360cef98fb0efb0d623894933.png

A submission for Maporino 2021.

On the world of Etherius a darkness is stirring, a Dreadlord has spent years plotting and preparing. Now the time has come to make his move.
Inspired by Legends of Arkain, A Growing Darkness is the first map of a future single player campaign.





As the map has now been showcased I have updated it based on some of the feedback.

Added Gold mine near southeast Trolls
Replaced battlemages Rain of Fire with Cripple
Widened several choke points
Dark Binding can now properly target heroes
Partially fixed end cinematic heroes not showing up, still aware of the fact that if either hero is dead when the cutscene is triggered they will not show up. Still trying to work on a fix for that but still wanted to patch some of the other things.

I noticed that sometimes when I Enthralled a Captain or a knight they would get the attack/armor upgrades then other times they would not get these upgrades. Maybe make the Dark Portal ult a targetable spot if you can cause I got one stuck in some trees.
Also managed somehow to summon 3 infernals I guess from spamming the R hotkey

Have you submitted this yet to him? Cause I cant wait to see him play this it was really fun, especially the plaguing granaries was a really cool mechanic

I love it :thumbs_up:
but you need to focus on the end cinematic

The dread lord and the blight master aren't in their region :con:

Strange, you should get the human upgrades from a time based trigger, not sure why it would be so inconsistent. Making the Dark portal targetable is probably something I'll end up doing in the future. As for the 3 infernals not sure how I would go about fixing that, but I don't think it's too bad for now. Yes it has been submitted and I'm glad you enjoyed it!

I was worried about that... I thought I had it fixed but I guess not. I'll have to work on that.

It's a good demo map. The ending cinematic is a little buggy but the story, characters and action it tries to deliver is good. It looks like a promising campaign with a smart dreadlord as a main character.
