Kael - Elf Campaign (Demons of Dalaran)

Submitted by SuperMudz
This bundle is marked as pending. It has not been reviewed by a staff member yet.
This project has been created for WarCraft III: Reforged. It's in progress, and it should be a maybe 4/5 map campaign.

Instructions: Currently it's just download and play. From either Custom Maps or the editor itself.

The directory for the campaign maps should look like: "Maps\Custom\Kael\ (Actual Kael Maps Here)"
The bonus map should go in an extra directory, so "Maps\Custom\Kael\Bonus Maps\ (WarCraftMarshal Map, etc)"




KAEL'THAS - ELF CAMPAIGN

STORY: Dalaran has been ruined - Quel'thalas has been lost. Everywhere, the shadow of the Undead grows over the lands of Lordaeron, the homes of humans and Elves alike. You are Prince Kael'thas, and the people of the Elves look to you for hope and leadership. Do not disappoint them.


Start on the first mission of KAEL: DEMONS OF DALARAN. An ELF CAMPAIGN, centred entirely around the Quel'Dorei surviving in the ruins of the Undead invasion. This takes place before the events of the expansion of The Frozen Throne.

KAEL 01


"Of Shadows and Princes of the Eternal"



Status: Released.



Summary: Prince Kael has gathered what remains of his people in the area, intending to find them a safe haven. Many human towns have also been destroyed, and their people had fled to the protection of the Elves. These islands have provided some shelter for the time being, but the threat of the undead is slowly growing.
Something is out there stirring them up - it may not be long until these lands are lost. Unless someone does something to stop it.

KAEL 02

"The Book of Magic"



Status: Released. Updated to solve a few issues including tech-tree.

v1.00? Maybe?



Summary: Your new "friend" has spoken of a magical tome that was kept in Dalaran for safe keeping, and was lost when the city itself was taken by the demons. Fortunately, it was in the Elven district, and many of the enchantments still survived, thus it's possible it still exists. Prince Kael himself studied there and is naturally quite familiar with it.

The journey has taken several days, but with Prince Kael keenly feeling that his magic is failing him, and would soon be the downfall of the Elves, has led his people there on a quest of hope.






BONUS MAP!

WARCRAFT MARSHAL / SPYMASTER

(Alpha Demo)



[​IMG]



This is purely a bonus map I've added. It's an experimental dialogue-based AI system, designed to let the player interact with the AI (his allies) via chat messaging.

It's generally a sort of Commandos style squad-management game with overall RTS elements - it should be evident enough when you start playing it. It is just in its first simple stages, so this is an alpha release demo. The map is currently viewable, but I will likely "protect" it later, in order to preserve gameplay, because it's too tempting to cheat. :p

Try to out-manoeuvre the enemy, organise resistance, and command allied forces, and achieve objectives. The Dialogue AI system is designed to be explored (not just to enhance gameplay as designed, but actually necessary in this map), but it's very, veeeery, simple at the moment just for this alpha. The next iteration is likely to be a lot more complex, and therefore it'll make just as much sense to lock the map in the editor then.


Hope you like it!

I can currently do very little to help if you expose any personal information. Sorry about that, I'm doing my best, honest.

    Alternatively, you can just download the pack like this, apparently. (I'm sort of a returned noob, so forgive me.)

    (Based on map description) I really like how the premise of this campaign is in a time that has not been explored by previous custom campaigns - Kael'thas pre- frozen throne. I don't have a problem with all those 15+ campaigns that focus on Wc1/Wc2, but it is nice to have the plot be based in a fresh location/story.

    You should hide those screenshots; they're too big and you have to scroll a lot to get through all of the description.
    Use:

    [spoiler]

    [/spoiler]

    or

    [hidden="title"]

    [/hidden]


    BB Codes | HIVE

    Also, since it's a campaign. Have you done anything to address the game cache since Reforged does not support custom campaigns? For instance, you could use save codes like in tulee's campaign.

    I didn't know SC2Mapster allowed Warcraft III stuff.

    Also, works in progress go here: Map Development
    Depends on how much play time and content the current maps offer.

    I went to look at your Sc2 campaign on Sc2 mapster, since Deepstrasz mentioned your page in his comment.
    https://www.sc2mapster.com/projects/rogue-force
    I am shocked at how little feedback is given on the mapster forums. It is not criticism of your rogue campaign there, Supermudz, just a little surprised at how comments for sc2 campaigns there are not as active as feedback for Wc3 stuff on hive.

    The site already zips the files when clicking download. You don't download them separately.
    To be honest, I'm more interested in the discussion about creationism and Darwinism he participated in.

    Thanks, bud! I was watching the Reforged playthroughs by Jayborino and Grubby and just got stoked for it. I played a little bit of WarCraft 2 when I was younger, so some of that is still stuck in my head too, ironically.



    Thanks for the tips! And I'll be sure to check it out when I have the time, because I'm totally clueless about that. This is pretty much my first WC3 campaign.

    And yep, they have like a Legacy WarCraft 3 category available, and they just obviously don't mind. :p
    It's artistic license, I guess, but it's a map-making site, so close enough. Beggars can't be choosers and what-not.

    But the Hive is obviously way more appropriate - I'm just keeping my habits efficient. ^.^



    Haha, yeah. That was tough to get used to. I've been working at stuff for a couple of years and barely eked a comment out of anyone. I remember the community being way more chatty - but maybe I was thinking of the Hive. :p
    Still, once the work is done it's done - thanks for being one of the chatty. ^.^


    It's mostly just for the directory - because the maps load into each other, so that's probably necessary?

    And boy, that's been a while. A few years ago I'd be more than happy to, but I'm not likely to get side-tracked about it at the moment - but if it interests you, knock yourself out. :p

    I tend to put all my thoughts into the form of fiction and projects now. Productive for a complex topic. And productive in general. ^.^


    Anyway, thanks for replying, guys! Means butt-loads. BUTT-LOADS. :infl_thumbs_up:

    Just don't turn it to propaganda.
    Sounds like something negative :D smelly and dirty.

    To make an obvious joke, you had to look for my post. C:
    Jeez, don't be so naggy.

    Maybe it's the first thing that pops up when you click my prof, though, so I'll think about that.
