Fallen Hope - CtD

Submitted by Elf_Lord
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.

Do you hear me?

The year is 25 of the Lotharian Calendar, four years before the Crimson Dawn and the fall of New Avalon. High General Brigitte Abbendis leads the Scarlet Crusade's charge across the Plaguelands, leaving her daughter Lynnia as a ward of Lord Valdelmar, Duke of Tyr's Hand. But corruption lurks within as well as without, and on a bitter autumn evening, Scarlet Commander Marjhan and the High Wizard Arellas are called upon to join the High Abbot Landgren in a mission most secret and most dire...

Fallen Hero is a standalone Chasing the Dawn RPG-style mission that can be played solo or with a fellow Crusader, featuring the talents of many regular Chasing the Dawn cast members, as well as new characters. Brave the ancient crypts of Tyr's Hand, battle heroes of legend and dark champions alike, and claim victory for the Crusade!

    Reserved.

    For those of you playing on a pre-Reforged patch (I don't blame you), download from here: Fallen Hope Release Version | HIVE

    Sadly, having edited the map on the Reforged editor once, the current version is no longer compatible with non-Reforged patches.

    will need to pick between the campaign and co-op tag, they are rather exclusive in the type of map they belong to, a campaign gets dropped in the campaign folder and would be your normal multi map playthrough to go through its story, if this is a singular map then the co-op tag would suit it, even if you plan on having many sequal maps to it

    unless its in a single bundle and works in the custom campaign section of wc3, the campaign tag is incorrectly used here

    It's two-player. I don't know why the Hive's system insists on labeling it as nineteen. I've found no way to set it manually. It can be played single player or co-op.

    I consider it a part of my Chasing the Dawn campaign, which is why I gave it the tag. If a moderator has a problem with this designation, I'll remove said tag.

    well thats an actual campaign you can tell just by the file type, this is just a standalone map, it may be associated, but its not a campaign

    moderator will already have an issue with it since it violates map submission rules #10

    the campaign tag to this specific file is not relevant, i dont see any issues with any of the other tags

    This is a standalone prequel map to Chasing the Dawn. It features some of the same characters and helps set up some of the plotline of Part II. Part II itself is still in development, though where it goes from here remains to be seen, as I have some serious qualms about the new EULA. I'll hopefully be able to announce what I'm doing about Part II one way or another in the next week or so!

    I disagree with your assessment, DrakPanda, and will await word from an actual moderator before making edits, as previously stated. However, thank you for your concern.

    Yes, the campaign tag is for .w3n files, rarely for edited RoC or TfT campaign maps.
    It is however used for co-op campaigns that use load-save codes since .w3n cannot be played in multiplayer.

    Man if Blizzard starts killing content with this level of quality because of their Reforged shenanigans, hiveworkshop is basically done.

    It doesn't spoil anything, no. It does, however, set up a plot point and a character that play a big part in Abbendis's arc in Part II.

    Releasing an update today, v.1.01b, correcting mostly bugs regarding the final boss fight. I've also become aware just generally about model and environment issues caused by the Reforged patch. It is highly recommended to play this on Classic graphics, but there are issues involving SFX and lighting that are still broken in Classic (for instance, the spell animation of the Gravetender).

    I'm downloading it now, but let me say this, I love me an RPG-Map, but adding the "Campaign" tag to it I find misleading. To my understanding the RPG-Mapsters of Warcraft 3 are pursuing a way different style then the Campaign-Crafters. Both have their own distinct elements, with RPG-Mapsters having a slight edge, because technically one could make multiple RPG-Maps and string them together into a Campaign (Rexxar-Style), but this here is clearly not that case.

    So, please Call it (co-op) RPG for now, not campaign ^^'

    I've given the map a try and I have to say that I've enjoyed it. It can be played by a single person, it will require some skill since you'll be controlling 2-3 heroes at once and the boss fights are medium-hard as difficulty. It is a story closely related, if not inspired, from the sad and tragic fate of the Abbendis line that has known only tragedies throughout the history of Warcraft.
    High General Abbendis went partly mad after fighting the Undead for so long and died to the Undead while saving Brigitte. Brigitte Abbendis was manipulated and eventually found her death in Icecrown. Lynnia died possibly to the Undead during the Scourging of Lordaeron, or at the hands of Balnazzar (it is rumored that she's part of the "Risen", Scarlet Crusaders brought back to life by Balnazzar and are much more dangerous and powerful than the Scourge).

    My advice to people that want to play the map on their own will have to end the whole thing in one sitting with no saves and be extra careful since Landrgen's W doesn't block Unholy(Chaos) type damage and can't heal himself using his E unless he uses his R and the Spirit of Retribution heals him steadily. Keep in mind that Marjhan's W makes her immune to magic, but it will also remove buffs on her such as Landrgen's Blessings or his W skill to block damage.

    Here is a list of issues that I've found:
    - Saving works, but loading a save once you get defeated during the mission will cause the game to freeze and crash.
    - Quitting the game during the mission will cause the game to freeze and crash.
    - If you manage to load a save Arellas' Q skill won't work.
    - If you manage to load a save some triggers won't work (such as getting teleported by the lich when you approach Lynnia Abbendis for the first time).
    - You can also engage Lynnia Abbendis with all 3 heroes without having to fight the lich. Keep your distance and attack her using your ranged heroes, you'll keep Arellas alive this way (he gets teleported to the middle of the main map, and will answer your orders to move with the exception of the optional maps ((Jaina, Arthas and Bolvar))
    - Do NOT kill Lynnia Abendis before you end Arthas' scenario map. It will lock down the game and you won't be able to finish it.
    - Unleash! is too strong (in my opinion), you can easily kill a bunch of enemies with Marjhan's W or Q skill(s) and deal a LOT of damage to Abbendis once you return to the main map. This way you can effectively lock yourself unknowingly from ending the map.
    - Orthmar Garithos wasn't buried anywhere, has no tomb and isn't recognized as a memorable figure of the Alliance, nor of Lordaeron; he is hated by a lot of humans of the Alliance. His body was eaten by Ghouls after he was betrayed by Sylvanass once the battle for the Capital of Lordaeron was over.

    As a side note I've played the map on patch 1.31.1.12173 so I am unsure if the issues I've encountered are the same for other people.

    Overall I managed to enjoy the map to the fullest (after my 4th try). I've had some problems, not bug nor map design related, but my own play style and lack of full attention. The atmosphere is what truly sells the story's experience. It is something that I would return to just for the atmosphere, the sensation of exploring a dark, Undead haunted crypt and good boss fights. Even if I can't vote I am grading this map with a solid 5/5, even if the experience was brief (I needed 1 hour to end it) it is a very well built map, decent VA's, great atmosphere that draws you in and a good story.
