Malfurion's Quest v1.4b

Submitted by Turnro
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
[​IMG]

You are Malfurion Stormrage, arch druid of the Night Elves and protector of Kalimdor. A great prophecy has foretold the return of the Burning Legion, who seek to destroy Azeroth once and for all.

For 10,000 years you have roamed the Emerald Dream, awaiting the day for your return to lead your people against the demons. However, you feel that the world has changed much during your absence. Despite Nordrassil being heavily guarded and Illidan the Betrayer sealed deep within his prison, you sense something terribly wrong that threatens your people's survival from the coming invasion.

Your mind is left in doubt, and the Prophecy's fulfillment draws near. Will you make sacrifices to ensure Azeroth's survival from the Burning Legion? Find out as you play Malfurion's Quest, the epic finale in Turnro's series of Warcraft 3 campaigns.

    That's debatable but looks like they were good enough to inspire countless clones. No surprise this campaign would have the same treatment.

    We've changed a lot of things on the campaign though and we're currently focused on that far too much to care about the work of others. However, we're glad if other campaign makers are somewhat inspired by Malfurion's Quest.

    the term "borrow" is not the word you should be using. The creator of that campaign keeps saying the he was "inspired" by Turnro's work, but its almost 90% copy of Mal'furion's quest and when we explained our disinterest in what he did, he insisted on not changing anything.
    The worst part was when I gave him 1/5 rate he got angry even though I gave him many tips to improve the campaign and start it all over from scratch without "borrowing" anything from Malfurion's quest.

    So I completed the Sentinel portion of this campaign and played some of the Highborne.
    I liked it overall. Terrain and gameplay are - for the most part - great.
    There are some weaker spots like the Cave of Shadows map, which is just annoying, but still, great work overall. I want to emphasize that I like the campaign, before brining up the problem that I want to bring up.

    And that problem is the Highborne part.
    It leaves me somewhat dissatisfied as it becomes incredibly hard to suspend disbelief.
    Okay, so you're taking Malfurion, an archetypical good guy and turning him evil. A great idea, unique and fun, but the execution is clumsy. One map after his decision to take on this new power to save his people he is outright extremely evil, dismissing almost everything he once cared for. He does a complete 180 turn and it's very hard to go along with it.

    Compare and contrast Arthas Menethil, who we witness going through a similiar transformation. He takes up Frostmourne and at the end of the same map he kills his father and one map later he is slaughtering villagers. He also does a 180. But it doesn't come out of the blue. We spend the better half of the human campaign witnessing his descent into madness, from Chapter 6 onwards, we see him pushing his morality aside for vengeance and in a very naive and disturbing take on 'the end justifies the means', so that by the end of that campaign it makes perfect sense that he doesn't really care what becomes of his people and welcomes the new power offered to him by the Lich King.

    Compare now, your Malfurion, in the Highborne section. He betrays his love, kills Furbolgs, dismisses his entire people. This is not the Malfurion we know. His turning to darkness is so sudden and complete that it's really hard to take it seriously. You need time to execute such character development.

    I understand that it would be infeasible to go back and change the maps to make the whole thing more believable, so here is a suggestion that would take only a little time to implement and partly fix the problem:
    Swap the role of his Inner Voice to one that at least berates or criticizes his descent into evil once he becomes evil. So, you know, kind of how like his Inner Voice is doubtful and menacing during the Sentinel part where he is good, his inner voice would be ashamed and disbelieving of his dismissal of his old ways in the Highborne part where he is evil.

    This way, we would see that he isn't completely evil, his 'inner voice' knows and acknowledges that he is behaving in an extremely selfish and evil manner and he is actively suppressing it for 'what needs to be done'. (Note: I haven't yet completed the Highborne part, I'm at the start of the Temple of Moon, if this does happen, it needs to happen earlier.)

    TLDR: I love the campaign, great work, excellent terrain and gameplay, Sentinel story is okay, Highborne story needs some work to be more believable.

    Hello there, I'm glad you've played Malfurion's Quest 1.23b.
    I would like to reply to some of your feedback.

    First of all, the entire campaign has been for the most part reworked with new characters, a more evolved storyline, more balanced gameplay and we've been focused on filling a lot of plot holes. In the newest version of the highbourne story, I'm confident that a lot of the things that are happening will make a lot more sense.

    We've worked on his highbourne's personality making it more believable, and while some people will not agree to his purpose or goal or the way Malfurion does things, they can't misunderstand his reason for doing so.

    Your comparison to Arthas is quite interesting and we've noticed this as well but we're not aiming for something similar. Malfurion's personality changes or it's affected throughout his dreams in the Emerald Realm. The prologue, for example, focuses on his dream and what outcome might happen. When Malfurion notices that everyone is being oblivious to the Burning Legion's coming, he becomes afraid and doubts his own powers and people since they're not so well organized after Jeopardy of the Horde. All of these will be addressed on in the new patch.

    I can't talk about his "Inner voice" without spoiling what it is or why it's happening the way it is, but there will be enough proper adjustments in the early chapters that will make it better.

    Malfurion's Quest is far from being complete, the Sentinel version being planned for 2019-2020 where, once again, all chapters will be reworked both in gameplay and story and will add new characters and new story elements to this alternative universe. Throughout 2017 and 2018 we've been focused a lot on the story, the dialogue, and the gameplay to bring a better experience in the Highborne storyline.
    Hopefully, you'll give it another try in the future when the new patch will be released and we'll await your feedback and discuss the campaign with you.

    Have a nice day/evening and thanks for the comment.

    Excuse me,I’am a player from China. I love Malfurion' Quest very much. But I found a bug from the game recently. The bug is that WarcraftIII will crash when I get out of any Bonus Chapter. I used 1.27A and 1.27B but there isn't any improvement. Please help me.

    This problem is due to a long-time bug in Warcraft 3 that was unaffected by the patches. It is to do with file path saving, where maps will not load if the path is too many characters long. Whether this problem occurs depends on the following:
    - The campaign's file nam eon your computer is too long. The file comes named as 'malquestv1.3' when you get it (which is short), and renaming it to something longer can increase the chance of the bonus maps not loading correctly. To solve this, simply rename the campaign file to a shorter name
    - The install path of Warcraft 3. This problem also occurs if you are playing the game off an external hard drive or in a location on your computer other than the C drive

    Note that if you do either of the above changes, it is possible the levels in Malfurion's Quest will reset in the loading screen, meaning that you will be unable to resume your current progress. You could technically still play the game as the bonus maps are not mandatory to completing the missions. It's up to you want to want to do.

    Hello, Mr. Turnro. I am a Chinese player. I like this campaign(Malfurion's Quest) very much. I am wondering whether you allow me to translate this campaign into Chinese, so that more Chinese players who do not understand English can also enjoy your wonderful campaign. Looking forward to your reply.

    But,
    the Highborne Storyline's story,which is too sorrowful and cruel,makes me have a sence of sadness.

    Prologue was so epic that you get 5* from this alone.
