!Battle for Gilneas! (Please Hear Me Out)

Level 9
Mar 5, 2010
Hello, if anyone has played World of Warcraft you know that their is much that happened after WCIII. One of the most interesting stories I have seen through my many adventures of that game was the Starter Zone of the Gilnean Worgen. I love the way it was done, and the concept; although the idea is sore and unoriginal I would like to recreate the Starter Zone in Warcraft III format.

For those of you who don't know the story here is a quick layout of the Battle of Gilneas.

Feel Free: To Correct Me If I Am Wrong!

The Gilnean People assisted the Alliance in the second war of Azeroth. When it became apparent that the Alliance needed Gilneas more than Gilneas needed the Alliance, King Genn Greymane had decided to cut off all ties to the outside world, and sustain his own people rather than injure his people with the qualms of others.

He built the Greymane Wall to keep others out, but this also kept the new spreading Worgen Curse, contained in his city. They had been fighting the worgen at the wall for many decades keeping them at bay with the might of their "Wall".

When Deathwing (Cataclysm reference) emerged from the depths of the earth this shattered the Greymane Wall. Allowing the Worgen from the Silverpine Forest to enter the city.

--Our Story Starts--
Genn Greymane fights against the Worgen invasion and fails to protect his people. The city of Greymane become cursed and part of the Worgen race. (Werewolves in London folks? ::eekani::) The scientists of the Greymane people find a way to suppress the curse, keeping the sanity of the individual but trapping them in the bestial form. Greymane City being so close to the Undercity or (Old Lordaeron) the Banshee Queen Sylvanas Windrunner invades and intends to claim Greymane City.

An old ally of the alliance who seems to be nice to EVERYONE, The Night Elves, come to the aid of the Worgen. They find a way to return them to their human selves... sort of. And drive back the Undead back to their Undercity.

So the idea is to recreate this story in WCIII format with building outposts and small armies to defeat a most of the time more impressive and well supplied foe, but using the unique and overpowering racial advantages end up defeating anyway.

I don't think i should write this all out right now, I shall add on as ideas come in from the Idea Factory. Lastly, i would like Cinematic with Voice Acting, it is a rare occurrence for a Campaign to have voice actors so I would like this campaign to have that.
