Northshire Abbey

Created by Stormshock

Map information:

After finishing your basic class training, you just arrived at Northshire Abbey where your first task is waiting for you. Northshire Abbey is a part of Elwynn Forest, which is located in the Human kingdoms. So it is most likely that you will play as a Human.
The goal of this map is to complete quests like in "World Of Warcraft (WoW)". This is also the game where my idea came from. Although the name of the area is from WoW, every quest and all unit names in this map are made up by me.
When you start this map, you must choose a Hero. In the following paragraph the Human heroes will be explained. After choosing a hero, you have to choose a difficulty (easy, normal or hard) and a mode (softcore or hardcore). These two modes came from "Diablo III". Softcore means that you revive after you have died and hardcore means that you only have one life. This means that you will not be revived after you have died.

Human heroes:

In this map you can choose between four heroes; mage, paladin, warlock and warrior. Mages uses the power of fire and frost to neutralize their enemies. Paladins uses the holy light to protect their allies and vanquish those who are evil. Warlocks uses the power of shadow and demons to destroy their enemies. Warriors uses powerful weapons to slaughter his enemies.
All four heroes have two passive spells (aura's and self buffs) and four active spells (both single and multi target spells). The exact spells are not going to be mentioned here.
As you will notice, the heroes are actually Warcraft III units, like the sorceress. Heroes like Jaina or Arthas and do not belong in a low leveling zone like this one.

    Northshire Abbey is probably the smallest single role playing game I've played so far, all of the mechanics, models, and cosmetics are based on a default structure of the Warcraft genre. Questing is simple but well flexed out the idea of quick skip through a conversation is very much of a good taste for rpgs.

    Although the terrain value is quite simple as well, you might want to expand it more since the game is only a single player, that gives you more effort to give in detail.

    Any else, this rpg is played fast depending on the difficulty you will choose.

    I played it.
    And really, I enjoyed it.
    The game is very simple, and is fine.
    3.5/5 for me.
    Will you be making more? I saw that you wrote "Leveling Zone 1" or something.

    I suggest you use custom icons for the Warlock and Warrior. Other than that the map looks cool.

    3/5

    This is a barebones WC3 RPG that doesn't waste your time. That's the best words I'd use to describe it. It has good pacing, however the reason it has good pacing is because there just isn't much to do. You have a small area to do a few things, there isn't any depth to the combat, it's overall a very simple map.

    However, it does what it's supposed to do, and although it isn't the most exhilarating piece, it certainly isn't the worst.

    Ok, I'll Give this a Short Review.

    This is A Real God Short and Easy Singleplayer RPG Map. I Finished it like in 30 minutes.
    There weren't many classes to choose from, And Their spells Weren't Custom (NOT a Negative Point). It was a WoW Conversion, So i Expected Custom Models, Many Heroes, Long and Hard Gameplay, And Tons of Quests, Bigger Map and A Better Camera (Altough the Camera isn't Important).

    Overall, Not Bad, Not great Either. Half of What i Expected. Makes it: 5 : 2 = 2.5 ~= 3/5

    Okay, my impressions upon playing this:

    It was a fun little map, it took me about an hour to complete everything (including all the sidequests), but I do have several criticisms:

    1. I picked the monk class. The Spinning Crane Kick (clearly a D3 inspired spell) is bugged, and level 2 or 3 of the skill still deal the same amount of damage (50). Also, if ever fixed, the spell should heal more per level, other than having a fixed amount. Even so, I grew quite powerful over time, so I was mainly relying on my toughness and sheer punching power to kill and stay alive.

    2. The ultimate spell (same as the pandaren one, even tooltips are the same) is underwhelming, I found that my character is much stronger without morphing.

    3. I didn't even get to level 10, and I did my share of grinding and wondering around, which suggests that more content should be made for the map.

    4. Finally, the way the game ends is a bit.. anti-climatic. The whole map is one fetch quest after another, but I was sort of hoping for some kind of a boss fight or something similar.

    Final verdict: 3/5.

    Being a really short rpg, you got me interested.
    However, it does not work.

    Nothing happens upon map launch.
    I can only see a box with a mana and health potion. :/
