Arthas Campaign - Humans
Created by [The]Blood_Head - Sagi5533

Map Info:

I thought to myself, Why not to try something different? Why not to give Arthas Menethill other choice instead of turning to cold hearten Death Knight? this is about alternative timeline where Arthas is exposed to what might happen should he purge Stratholme, And by doing so changing the entire Warcraft III lore. I hope you would like it, Comments will be appreciated. And yes, Grammar Nazis will probably kill me.

Features:

- Story stays true to belive despite major lore changes.
- For each chapter there's special Difficulty system.

Characters

Prince Arthas Menethil:
Prince Arthas is son of Terenas and Lianne Menethil, And Brother of Calia. Heir to the throne of Lordaeron and one of the most powerful paladins on Azeroth. Since in this time line Arthas will not claim Frostmourne, There's no telling how much that will affect the warcraft III History..


[​IMG]

Terenas Menethil:
Terenas Menethil II was born in the court of the kingdom of Lordaeron, one of the strongest human nations, as a member of the royal Menethil family, which had ruled the kingdom for generations. An old friend of Thoras Trollbane, Terenas grew up to become a wise and just ruler, greatly loved by his people. His long years of reign saw peace and brought prosperity for Lordaeron. However, now his future might change..


[​IMG]

Lady Jaina Proudmoore:
Jaina was one of the most talented and trusted sorceresses of the Kirin Tor. She was dispatched by Antonidas to discover what was happening in the northlands of Lordaeron. She was escorted by her childhood friend and one-time romantic interest, Prince Arthas Menethil, to uncover if the plague had magical origins. In this time line she will have major affects on Azeroth's fate..


[​IMG]

Uther The Lightbringer:
Uther The Lightbringer, was the first paladin of the Knights of the Silver Hand who led his Order in battle against the Horde during the Second war. Uther is the Mentor of Arthas and a close friend of Menethil Family. Uther has witnessed the rise of the Undeads and that might not affect him well..


[​IMG]

Bloody The Seeker(Custom Character):
Bloody is not a real warcraft lore character, I named him after my eurobattle account However Lore should be told. Bloody was born in Darrowshire, Bloody's family were poor as his father died durning the second war. Bloody has two brothers, however durning the Orc invasion his brother Marywn fell in battle. Bloody swore to protect the innocents and joined the order of the Silver Hand as a Paladin, under the guidence of Uther The Lightbringer. he moved with his other brother and mother to Hillsbrad, however their fate is unkown.

    Uh... insult was a strong word, I edited it to irk! :D You know, where was I live the "modern carefree" era are just begun to show up as well as with the carriers of this life-style, like "new-riches", trash reality "stars", USA and Japan imitators, I met this people in my days and they often insult/irk/annoy us with their arrogance. :/

    Oh... and chapter 9 is fair, you need to find an item to open the gate as I remember.

    Reading some comments I agree final chapter is somewhat boring because it's a grindfest, but imba vs imba is still balanced. Also it's not very challenging when you virtually can't loose. Story might be weird for some, for me it was having trolls as the ultimate enemy, they seem like they own Kalimdor lol. About Thrall I seriously expected he would escape with a zepelin or something.
    We're just immersed in regular wc3, so we're torn out when something totally different happens. Well, it is after all a fan-made alternate story campaign, and in this case it's either you hate or love it, there isn't much in between I guess...

    You just have to accept we have all different preferences and it's impossible to make us all happy. It's important to remember this when you get mad when it feels like someone is trampling all over your hard work.

    Hm sorry you feel that way, But the story aint changing I might balance the items of Arthas and Jaina with the trolls in the future insted of the tomes but nothing more.

    Peace and love man :D
    And yeah chapter 9 is fair, People are all like this is the end of the world.. There's a sequel coming and everything will be alright.

    Hm thank you I guess, It's not like I'll change the end just because few people complained they didn't like it :p some people will hate and some will love no biggie :eek:

    Man,you've taken me many times about the story,and I wonder , when ray I have complained to the story,only I have complained about the gameplay of Chapter Nine,well that does not matter anymore,hey if you want me to say something positive campaign definitely my favorite moment was when Arthas release their fifth power,was an epic moment, it was almost the counterpart of the shooting star tyrande was very good :)

    PD:I went into the theme of the story will not criticize anything because it is your campaign alternate universe,I mean you decide you do with the characters, while it might tell you that did not taste much for example the part of thrall but do not criticize him because as I said this is your story, I only criticize the gameplay of Chapter nine,and yes, I 've said many times,and one more thing,it is not wrong to acknowledge mistakes,unlike that would help you make a campaign that is much better than this,this is a good campaign but has its faults,is not perfect,but it helps to make better projects well I think that's all :)

    How can this map be in first place on the top 20 maps when it's unfinished and has never been rated by a moderator???!!!!!

    This is an equivalent to insider trading. Your only winning because your in with the stock market

    Yes Show it to a moderator and demand a rating!
    Also the definition of finished is not that the content is whole, but rather that this is the finished product and no updates or changes will need to be made... that is not the case at even the moderator has said there are at least 3 errors she/he discovered.

    Now that means this map is approved, but not working properly!

    NOT TO BE APPROVED!

    If it is so important... (not seems) you may also carry here one.

    It means a larger section of maps is not finished, as updates coming and coming.

    Campaign are repaired two times after Rufus's review.

    First of all Rufus tested the campaign but didn't rate it since rating system will change and left it unrated, Second the campaign would've been approved! He said he would rate it 3/5(which doesn't make me happy but people may have their opinion). Third What are you babbling about? the only changes I made were few bugs and some updates for High Elves/Terenas spells! The campaign is done and every map on hive do the same thing so really chill out. This campaign is top because I think people love the idea for a good story for Arthas and Blizzlike campaign! Seriously I don't know what you are looking for, But the campaign is finished and there are updates on every map always. If you came to argue about the reason my campaign is on top downloaded maps of the month (as I've already seen you spamming Shadow fury about my 'glitchy map') well This is something that shouldn't concern you since your attitude is horrible, And the fact that you don't respect this website's rating system.

    This campaign has been reviewed by Rufus, a renowned member of the Map Reviewers.
    He deemed this map approvable, so let it be TheLordOfChaos.

    Only the author himself could ask for a new review.
    You, TheLordOfChaos, haven't the right to do so.
    So stop spamming this thread now.
    You made your point clear, but it won't change anything.

    it's hardly spamming when it's only 2 comments, but I get it. you can't take a negative opinion, I guess I wouldn't want a re-review if I was afraid of a poor rating too...

    or you could do what's best for the hive and prove your map is worth it.

    No idea why all the hate, campaigns can always be improved, yes, but this one is very good imo, looks completed and author says it's completed. Be thankful for it, you just got a free campaign, and not a bad one at that, all made possible by the author, who spent who knows how many days working on it.
    Edit:
    You said before that it isn't playable. How so? There were some errors apparently experienced only by very few of us, and even that got fixed.

    I quite liked the campaign,
    many nice maps and a decent story.
    I think you still need to take a good look at the grammer. There were a lot of grammar errors. I am not a native English speaker and even I found a lot of them (mostly wrong tenses), also the last map still needs some work. It doesn't really work all to well and doesn't completely show the missions. The concept for the last map is great though.

    Good luck with improving the map and for now it is also enjoyable.

    Already on the work! :D having some problems with few models since I can't edit them but I hope to find someone that might help.

    Exactly, Spamming this thread and other maps reviewers will bring him nothing probably.

    Same! After I've completed the warcraft III campaigns for the first time, I wondered if there's a custom campaign somewhere showing an alternative path for Arthas. I've waited and no one took that idea for some reason xP

    My problem with your comments were that you didn't post them only on my thread, You also asked a map reviewer personally to not approve my campaign. I would've respected your review but your attitude just killed it. :)


    Exactly, He even didn't test my campaign since there are no glitchy parts of crashes/errors. But sure, Spamming Hiveworkshop will probably solve it.

    Can't argue with that, My grammar isn't the best however I tried my best. I'll have to ask someone to fix it for me at some point :p I'm glad you liked the campaign, The last map might get a small map because many people didn't like the idea of Arthas and Jaina buying freely tomes of +75 stat. However I think I've figured out how to balance it and the map might get an update later.

    SPOILER ALERT !!!

    One more thing I disliked about this campaign is Thrall's death. Since both humans and orcs were following their leaders and those leaders (both Arthas and Thrall) were instructed by Prophet Medivh to go to Kalimdor to save their people and fight against the coming demons, it was a shame that Thrall had to be killed. Was that his destiny? To come to Kalimdor and die? He only intended to save his fellow orc brethren from humans in Lordaeron and Arthas killed him in Kalimdor :'(
    sagi5533, as I already mentioned, the campaign itself is great. I'm just writing my opinions about it. And you keep up with your great work. I can't wait to play the Undead version of the campaign :D

    Thank you, Well his destiny was to lead the Horde to Kalimdor. (Preparations aginst the Burning legion). However in case the Undead campaign will be a success, I might make an Orc sequel which I promise have awesome characters and lore. :D

    Sigh... please enclose them in tags when you have a spoiler. I... actually read the whole thing, now that it was QUOTED as well. Oh my god.

    Edit: To say something on topic, I am still waiting for Sagi. Can't wait to help.
