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.

My screenshots are all outdated at the moment. Once I have time to do a full playthrough where I'm not starting and stopping to troubleshoot I will post a set. In the meantime, the old screenshots can be found on the Chasing the Dawn campaign thread, and I have videos in Related Media that show some aspects of gameplay.

Latest Patch: 1.03 (Patch notes found on this document)

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...

Approved. Awesome voice acting, awesome opening cinematic. A well made continuation of the original wc3 campaigns. If you want a more elaborated review, try joining the Grand Review Exchange.

    Look here for patch notes and other miscellaneous announcements...

    New version released, finally fixing the infamous Stables glitch!

    Also, if you played Mission 3 on version 1.02.03 and Landgren is not properly spawning in Mission 4, you will have to do the following to fix the issue:
    Step 1: Reload a save from Mission 3.
    Step 2: Restart and replay Mission 3 on version 1.02.04.

    You can cheat. Do whatever you have to do to finish the mission. Unfortunately this glitch has to do with the game cache and does require a reset of the Mission 3 game cache.

    This fix should not be necessary. I have received no reports of this issue. This is merely a remote possibility I noticed while doing some fixes to Mission 3.

    Current Version: 1.02.04

    How do you go to the road? I can clearly see the road but when I try to walk there, invisible wall is blocking me from going down the slope. Its the part where I spawn at the camp in first person view.

    Edit: I already solved it but, at the next mission, the Garrison has too many trainable units that it cannot be upgraded to an outpost because the option to do so has no space I think.

    Okay, some problems

    Chapter 01: The melee unit is really weak. At least give him some Defend skill or change his armor type.
    Chapter 03: The Garrison can train all units and I can't upgrade it into an Outpost.
    Chapter 04: I didn't get Landgren and problem again with the Garrison.

    Also, there should be a "reset" talents option, as I get confused with where I placed my talents. And Judgment doesn't do the promised heal when I put my talent to it.

    Okay. I have never had the second problem before nor the third. I will check those immediately.

    UPDATE: Should be fixed. Thanks for the quick responses, everyone!

    Cool Campaign i like the Upgrade and Skill options.



    Got the same problem with the Garrisons. Also with the Garrions bug occuring Conscripts take 2 Food Space instead of one.
    Third chapter: there is a random captian shelby next to the Graveyard in the middle of the map.

    This is not a demo. This is the full version of Part 1 of the campaign (there are three parts). This campaign takes place in the Plaguelands then the Dragonblight then Icecrown, and at the moment only Part 1 is finished. I will update this campaign with Parts 2 and 3 as I finish them (whenever that might be), and your save data will carry over. My immediate project is to release an extra bonus mission for Part 1, which will be finished in a few weeks.

    Is it possible to make the movement speed in First person mode faster? It takes ages to walk

    Edit: Soldiers do not benefit from damage upgrades, some descriptions of skills do not match with what they actually do. When defending the castle, the undead don't really attack you that heavily, and when the timer is up, nothing really happens until I attacked them, then it ended. In first person mode after 3rd mission, the view is glitched, I cannot see what is above me until I go down the slope to the first floor. And during the 5th mission, when the tower drops down, after this cinematic, the entire map goes black and I can't see anything, probably a glitch too.
