[​IMG]
In a daring campaign against the Scourge in Northrend, Illidan faced off against the death
knight Arthas in an attempt to destroy the Frozen Throne. However, Arthas defeated Illidan and left him
wounded in the snow, allowing Illidan to witness the creation of the new Lich King.

Kael'thas Sunstrider and Lady Vashj, realising their defeat, brought Illidan with them as they fled back to
Outland. Seeing their master's ugly wounds, they decide to bring him back to the Hellfire Citadel so that
he may recover... but, unbeknownst to them, Outland was in a state of a minor civil war.

Soon after that, tensions rise in the blood elven society as the Grand Magistrix Alessandra Katryne
proposes a dangerous idea: reclamation of their homeland, Quel'Thalas.


[​IMG]
- Campaign in the style of Blizzard's campaigns.
- 12 chapters, 6 interludes, 1 epilogue and 1 cinematic.
- A new revamped blood elf techtree, based on the human techtree, but with new units and abilities.
- A storyline with its roots in WoW: The Burning Crusade, along with some unique new stories.
- Lots of custom models, skins, icons, voice sets and music.


[​IMG]
A short story that serves as a prelude to the story of Rise of the Blood Elves.
It depicts the motivations and history of Alessandra Katryne, one of the main characters.
Sorrowfall


[​IMG]

[​IMG] Kael'thas Sunstrider - Lord of the Blood Elves. All Kael'thas wishes is the best for his people,
and he is willing to make questionable some decisions to ensure this future.
[​IMG] Alessandra Katryne - Grand Magistrix of the Blood Elves. Alessandra's past is filled with
disappointment and sorrow, and she will fight to ensure the best for her people.
[​IMG] Lor'themar Theron - Regent-Lord of Quel'Thalas. Lor'themar is a rational and careful leader.
Lor'themar wants to ensure a promising future for his people, but is not willing to cross certain lines.
[​IMG] Aewynne Maysong - Ranger-General of the Blood Elves. Aewynne is a good-willed and noble
leader, who cares about her home more than anything else.
[​IMG] Lady Liadrin - The Blood Knight Matriarch, Lady Liadrin is fiercely loyal to Kael'thas,
but values justice above all. Once the situation changes, Liadrin is not above fighting
with people she once called enemies.
[​IMG] Illidan Stormrage - Lord of Outland. After his defeat at Icecrown, Illidan became
reclusive, focusing on some unknown future.
[​IMG] Dar'Khan Drathir - In the Scourge invasion of Quel'Thalas, Dar'Khan betrayed his people,
ensuring Quel'Thalas' destruction. Now, he rules over the undead of Quel'Thalas, viciously
hunting all remaining elves.
[​IMG] Sylvanas Windrunner - The Banshee Queen, ruler of the Forsaken, a powerful undead faction.
In life, Sylvanas was the ranger-general of Silvermoon and bravely defended her home against
the Undead Scourge in the Third War. She continues the same battle in undeath.
[​IMG] Lady Vashj - Leader of the naga loyal to Illidan. Lady Vashj is cunning and manipulative,
and fiercely loyal to Illidan, ready to give her life for him at any moment.

    Hmm, I really have no idea what is causing that. I can try to send you a savegame of the beginning of the map if you want to, maybe you'll be able to load it up that way.

    Unfortunately, it doesn't work, but I'll check out the map some more, and see what could be causing the problem.

    EDIT: To anyone who was this problem, check what version of WC3 are you using. Be sure you are using the newest one.

    That's not a bug. If you first become allies with Ragebest and Blackaxe, and then do the task for Burning Fire, these two will attack you and the Burning Fire clan.
    They become enemies any way, if you choose Burning Fire, these two will become enemies with you, if you choose these two, Burning Fire will become your enemy.

    Ah, that happens very rarely, I'll check it out, but you can also try to replay that map.

    Im on chapter 5 and all are perfectly good.
    Very nice campaign my friend, I give you a 5/5 which you deserve after all this work.


    Btw , I'm working in a campaign which has nothing to do with the wrc3 lore and I need some1 with good terrain and spells skills.Think about it and tell me if you are interested.
    (All I need is some small work cause I'm taking all this project by my self.)

    In the cinematic when Blood elfs bring Sylvanas the new for help,The cinematic stops when the priest enters the room to talk.If frezes if you prefer.
    You have propably made the wait command too long.


    In the chapter with the Silvermoon dungeons I answered all the riddles except the one with the mountain or something....

    Nicely done.That screaming voise was too annoying :p
