[Campaign] Chasing the Dawn

Discussion in 'Map Development' started by Elf_Lord, Aug 3, 2015.

?

What sort of ending should Part II have?

  1. Canon - end the campaign at Part II, maybe a bonus mission to wrap up

    9.2%
  2. Canon - have a Part III from a different character's perspective

    65.5%
  3. Non-Canon - continue with an Abbendis-centric Part III

    25.3%

    "We fight with the Light shining upon our backs and ride with the wind at our heels. We are unstoppable."

    Tired of fighting alone against the Scourge? Then grab a friend and join the Scarlet Crusade in its quest to retake Lordaeron in Chasing the Dawn's new CHAMPION MODE, now in development. Champion Mode will feature several unique independent missions throughout Lordaeron and the Eastern Kingdoms, battling for supremacy against the Scourge, the Forsaken, even the Worgen - any who would dare challenge the true sons of Lordaeron. Bring forth the righteous might of paladin Galvar Pureblood, unleash the unbridled fury of dwarven warrior Dorgar Stonebrow, or bask in the glorious power of cleric Ferren Marcus; if they do not appeal to you, unlock numerous other Crusade heroes such as Renault Mograine and Scarlet Commander Marjhan by completing bonus missions or achievements in the Chasing the Dawn single player campaign. With multiple difficulties, diverse gameplay, and unique objectives and environments, Chasing the Dawn's Champion Mode will provide you and a friend with the chance to confront interesting new challenges Abbendis will never get the chance to alone.

    Status: Preliminary Development

    Currently planned to be released with Patch 2.00 or the first major subsequent patch. Will require latest patch due to filesize limitations.

    The voice whispered: "Come to me."

    Considering that I have never seen a Scarlet Crusade campaign done before (at least not a finished one), I thought I might give it a shot, give back something to this community I've been a part of longer than I like to think about. I have done my best to keep the campaign as canon as possible, but as it turns out keeping it completely canon makes for a rather boring campaign, so I have taken some liberties, mostly regarding locations. The narration you will hear in the campaign comes straight from Abbendis's diary in World of Warcraft... almost.

    (For anyone who's interested: The Diary of High General Abbendis)

    Again, I have had to make some changes, especially early on, to condense some of the more boring parts and to expand its scope in some areas so I could make more missions out of it (originally, I would only have been able to make two or three missions in Lordaeron; the plan is five at the moment). I am aware that the file will probably be enormous, and once everything's finalized, I will try to create a lighter version for those of you who do not want to deal with this campaign's monstrous size, but for now it's better for me to work in the full version.

    Story

    The kingdom of Lordaeron is in ruins. The Undead Scourge, with the former Prince Arthas at its head, has slaughtered every man, woman,
    and child in their path on their quest for domination, and now the Forsaken, Sylvanas Windrunner's pet army, have risen out of the ashes
    of the Tirisfal Glades. The plague has corrupted even the mightiest of heroes, the most noble of souls; death is everywhere. But one
    small bastion of hope remains: the Scarlet Crusade. Considered fanatics by most, the Crusade has devoted itself to cleansing the wretched
    undead from their homeland and restoring Lordaeron to its former glory. General Brigitte Abbendis, one of the Crusade's most fervent
    paladins, has long lead the elite Crimson Legion at the forefront of this battle, but the Holy Light has begun to whisper to her in her
    dreams, calling her north to confront the Lich King himself. So as the shadow of the Scourge once again falls over Lordaeron, Abbendis
    must ready herself to leave everything she has known behind, to lead the most faithful to their true destiny and to chase the dawn deep
    into the icy heart of Northrend...

    Characters

    [​IMG]
    High General Brigitte Abbendis
    Daughter of one of the Crusade's founding members, Brigitte Abbendis has rose to become one of the most important figures in the entire organization, commanding the most elite of the Light's zealots. While still somewhat young and naive in her command, her resolve is unwavering and her faith unquestionable. Abbendis's training as a paladin allows her to stand her ground against seemingly impossible odds, and if she sends her men into battle, she will certainly be fighting right beside them on the front lines, bringing the full strength of the Light to bear. Innately has Retribution, and can learn Holy Restoration, Divine Storm, Judgment, and Final Vindication.

    [​IMG]
    High Abbot Landgren
    One of the Crusade's foremost religious leaders, High Abbot Landgren often finds himself to be the sole mouthpiece remaining that the Light can speak through in these dark times. Acting as an advisor and chaplain for the Scarlet elite, soecifically for Abbendis's Crimson Legion, Landgren can, more often than not, be found at the rear of the army, blessing the foot soldiers before battle and guiding the hand of the officers, but when he does take to the battlefield, his command of the Holy Light can save dozens, even hundreds, of his compatriots from certain death, or worse. Landgren is one of Abbendis's most trusted aides, a confidence he does not take lightly. Can learn Book of Blessings, Penance, Divine Barrier, and Resurrection.

    [​IMG]
    Grand Admiral Barean Westwind
    A legendary Crusade commander, Admiral Barean Westwind was thought to be dead after his Scarlet Fleet was lost on a failed expedition to Northrend. However, despite the Scourge's best efforts, it appears that Westwind has survived his ordeal with his faith unbroken, and now he has returned to help the Onslaught battle its way to the icy heart of the Northrend, bringing with him his brilliant tactical ability and masterful cunning, not to mention his familiarity with the region. While rather cold at times, Westwind is a testament to the Onslaught's resolve, and can cause devastation to even the hardiest of its foes. Can learn Radiating Terror, Crippling Blows, Vampiric Aura, and Second Life.

    [​IMG]
    The Lich King
    Once a great paladin and crown prince of the kingdom of Lordaeron, long ago Arthas Menethil embraced a far darker calling, and his kingdom paid the price in blood for his betrayal before he vanished into the icy heart of Northrend. Now he has returned, calling himself the Lich King and believing himself the god of death, and from his unholy fortress come forth seemingly endless waves of the wretched undead, slaughtering all in their path. Until his destructive reign is ended, the safety of humanity and the world itself is at stake. Innately has Inspire Dread and the ability to raise his victims as slaves to Frostmourne, and can learn Army of the Dead, Soul Drain, Dominion, and Harvest.

    Finally a Scarlet Crusade campaign :D And with six techtrees too :D (hopefully the Forsaken and/or Vrykul techtree will be playable at some point of the campaign)

    Honestly, with how hostile the Scarlet Crusade is to basically everyone and everything, I'm not sure where the other techtrees could be playable and make sense, but I will do my best to slip in a chance or two to play the other new races if I can; it mostly depends on the direction I take the Northrend side of the campaign and how happy I am with the finished techtrees. I'm still a few upper-tier units short for the Forsaken, and the Vrykul might just not cut it for a full race because I'm lacking a couple important structures for them, like guard towers, that might not matter for a computer because I can augment them with Scourge structures but will matter for a player. It's still too early for me to tell.

    And I'm very proud of the name! Thank you!

    Thanks! And sorry if I stole your thunder, but it just wouldn't feel like Northrend without them. I'm a lore nut and a WoTLK vet reliving his glory days. Can't help it. :)

    Reminds me of my old project. Tales of the Scarlet Crusade

    Needless to say I like the idea. The thread layout isn't bad at all either! The terrain got some decent models but it looks really empty. Where are the flowers, bushes, animals, plants, stones, mushrooms etc?

    I consider myself a lore fanatic, so if you need help with the lore/story or just want some ideas feel free to throw a message my way.

    I actually saw your project page a week or two ago! It looked absolutely phenomenal, to the point that I nearly set aside this project. Guess I'm stubborn.

    I realize my terraining still leaves a little to be desired. I intend to go back and fix it up a little bit once I've finished with all the techtrees, though I've already decided that I'm going to try to keep some of the original WCIII style, so it probably won't look quite as good as yours. I won't have as much time to devote to this project starting next week, and I'm trying to at least get started on AI this week because of the amount of time it'll take for me to figure out (AI is not my specialty). I'll be posting new screenshots once I get a little farther.

    I assure you that was not my intention. (OR WAS IT?!)

    99% of all campaigns have pretty bad terrain so it's not like I am expecting miracles. But unless decoration objects are added it will get a 1/5 in terms of terraining. And sadly if you have a good terrain to show of with, you get a lot of attention. 90% of the replies on my project was "amazing terrain", not once did I get praised for doing the triggers (obviously because they can't see my trigger progress before I upload the map)

    Exactly, though I doubt my triggers are all that exciting, either. I just wanted to post something to show that things were actually happening with this project, because some limited attention is still better than none. That first map feels super empty to me, too, and it's been bugging me for a while. At the time, I spent so much time trying to match the actual terrain from WoW with it that by the time I was finished doing the bare bones terraining, I was ready to move on to something else. I think I've learned my lesson from that now.
