Map Info

Resurrection of the Scourge is the third campaign of Turnro’s series of alternate Warcraft 3 campaigns. Its story immediately follows from Jeopardy for the Horde.

With Azgalor defeated, Tichondrius, leading dreadlord of the Nathrezim, is burdened to take on the task of invading Azeroth. Accompanied by the dreadlords Varimathras and Dalvengyr, he plans to first resurrect the armies of the Undead Scourge, who had once terrorized the human kingdom of Lordaeron.

Throughout Resurrection of the Scourge, the story will refer to several key events that occurred in The Adventures of Rowan the Wise and Jeopardy for the Horde, revealing important events that have so far been hidden from the story.

    It has been a year in the making, but I have finally had time to update Resurrection of the Scourge. A list of changes, as well as maps added, are stated in the Change Log description. I wasn't able to recall every single change I had made (being that it has been a year), but at least I have noted every major change which I think is worth knowing.

    For all those who wish to know when the entire campaign will be finished, it is hard to predict since there are too many things happening with me at this stage. However, rest assured that I will FINISH THIS CAMPAIGN. The aim is to have it done before March next year. Even if I don't have it finished by then, I should be working on the final map of the campaign.

    The next update will add in Chapter 9, as well as fixing any errors or bugs found. As always, feedback is much appreciated.

    only Tichondirus is already dead, he was killed by Illidan (skull of gul'dan), dreadlords can only be kill by the power greater than them.

    After what I went through doing voice acting for my Human Campaign, I will be leaving it for now. I'm just more focused getting the campaign done at the moment.

    I think this problem with item and skill could be cause by this window where is possible to choose difficult at the beginning of the map (sorry but I'm not good at grammatical). But i hope you can understand what i mean :D

    Don't worry, I know what you mean. I just tried out Chapter 1 again and everything seemed to go fine. Just curious, though, when you played Chapter 1:

    - Did you skip the last cinematic at the end of the chapter?
    - What difficulty did you select (for chapters 1 and 2)?

    A note to fellow players:

    You can expect the next update for Resurrection of the Scourge (which will include Chapter 9) on 19th February. I will confirm the finish date of this campaign closer to the time.

    Also, if there is anyone interested in some modelling for this campaign, PM me. I am in need for some towers based on the ziggurats for Chapter 10.
