Ohh, this looks interesting. I'd be interested in joining, but I'm pretty much into everything except creating an actual storyline XD, always viewed those more as an excuse to kill stuff and a basic explanation for why you get to use some RFC stuff than anything else.

So basically I'm down for teaming up with someone who is more interested in writing the storyline for a campaign (being great with triggers is always a + to, I'm so-so with them at best).

One question though; how much like the WC3 champaigns should this one be? Considering the guidelines are pretty open-ended I'd assume we aren't making (more or less) a tutorial to play a racial techtree, and rather we could do something pretty different from wc3 gameplay like change the function of armor to grant evasion rather than % damage reduction, right?

Looks quite nice kael, but maybe do something more with the forest, bit more height variation and grass and stuff.

Edit:

First screenies: Starting area.

Never thought I would find a use for these trees.

Well, if you guys are posting wips...

Here is what I have done so far. Was thinking a Castlevania meets Diablo I style for the gameplay. Sadly, it doesn't seem very war is everyware atm, but without any storyline zombies seemed like a good idea for mobs to test stuff against.

An yeah, since it's a campaign I splurged a bit on the imports. (You can use any of my skins in this if you credit me btw).

If anyone is interested in helpin' me with a story I have decided upon a main character, because A: I think displaying armor on a character w/ skins would be cool, and B: I did like, 20 sentry skins already.
