Rise of the Vampyr 3.82

RISE OF THE VAMPYR
Created by Marshmalo



LORE: "It has been one hundred years since the Vampire Lord was banished, but since then the humble people of Talabhiem Kingdom have endured an unholy curse afflicting their lands, for the Vampire was not truly defeated...

His spirit remains, slowly drawing strength and corrupting the land. The peasant folk tell of strange creatures lurking within the shadows of the forests and dark voices whisper through the wind. While crops fail and disease spreads, it is the King of Talabhiem whom has suffered the greatest tragedy, all the heirs to his kingship have mysteriously disappeared and with every passing day, the king grows more weary and older. He has lost all hope of continuing his legacy but his greatest fear is about to come into being:

THE PROPHECY: Before the Vampire Lord was slain, he vowed to one day return and destroy the family line of King Alec. With the kings children missing, all the Vampire lord needs to do is kill is the king himself to fulfil the Prophecy. If he succeeds in wiping out the dynasty within 3 days he will regain his full strength and claim lordship over Talabhiem. If he fails to kill the king then his body will crumble and his spirit banished to the underworld for eternity.

But in the Darkest hour there is still hope, for 6 champions have stepped forward, offering their help to the beleaguered King of Talabhiem.




BASIC GAMEPLAY INFO:

This is a unique PvP map with support from AI factions where players can either chose to play as the Vampire Hunters or the Vampire Lord himself.

It combines influences from maps like Vampirism, Tomb of Jabocoriah and Dragon Hunters. There is also a strategy element as players have the option of creating squads or armies by hiring our local mercenaries from the city of Talabhiem.

The basic aim of Vampire lord is to kill the King of Talabhiem within 3 days or he will die. The aim of the Vampire hunters is to protect the King for 3 days or slay the Vampire lord himself.

If a Vampire hunter dies to a creep then he can be resurrected by an ally, however, if a hunter is killed by a Vampire he will return as an undead Vampire and serve darkness. Another way for the Vampire Lord to win is to kill all 6 defenders, but he only has 3 days so he must work quickly.

The Vampire hunters will have to work as a team, defending the King and the local villagers from evil. There are 3 villages around the map and of course the city of Talabhiem itself which houses the King. The cities defences are formidable, but if the Vampire Lord grows strong enough he will have the power to bring it down and slay the King.

The hunters have a number of weapons at their disposal, the greatest asset being the people of Talabhiem themselves, many can be hired as merc to fight along side your hero. In this sense the game also has a RTS element to it.

The Vampire Lord has the power to create vast armies of undead, but not in the normal sense, all his minions must be infected and raised as Vampires or zombies summoned from the corpses of the fallen. He can then mutate and evolve his minions into more powerful creatures and servants of Darkness with a range of different bonuses and abilities.

CREATORS NOTE: This is a very old project of mine I finally decided to finish, I've been working on it while other LTA developers had the LTA map so it won't have interfered with development of that map! RotV is almost finished now so I'm hoping to do a private beta test in afew weeks. Some of you may notice this is a continuation and sequel to my "Zombie Rising" map.

GAMEPLAY TIPS AND ADVICE:
Vampire Hunters:

- Stick together and always work as a team, the Vampire will be able to overpower you alone but he can not match the strength of you all combined.
- Use your powers to unlock special mysteries around areas of power around the map.

- Buy mercenries from the local village bastions, upgrade and expand your unit squad via black smiths.

- Entering the Vampires lair and destroying his base there will seveerly weaken him, but be wary for the underworld holds hidden powers and evil...
- Remember the undead are stronger at night but weaker by day.

Vampire Lord:
- Your aim besides killing the King should also be to kill the Vampire hunters, any which fall to your bite will be reborn as Vampire allies and serve you!

- Use the special global powers found in your underworld altar of power. Try and keep this protected.

- If the Vampire hunters enter your castle remember to use your traps to your advantage.

- Build your vampire and zombie army by corrupting and killing the local villagers and soldiers of Talbhiem. They will serve you either as a vampire or as a mindless Zombie. These can then be evolved into minions of great power.

- The main city of Talabhiem is very strong, attack and destroy the outer villages first before going for the king directly.

- Remember you only have 3 days, keep an eye on the timer, you can not afford to wait around.

    @StoPCampinGn00b: Rise of the Vampyr is a highly unique and impressively stunning looking map, the first of its kind. The terrain of the map always captures people's first glances because of how extremely detailed it is for Warcraft 3. Its cross strategy and hero survival gameplay makes for a fresh experience. Though it can seem more complicated than most maps at first, it's actually not that hard to get into. Once you're into it, there's just a lot of content to engage, notably some awesome events and spells. It's also not only competitive gameplay and visuals, as there's quite a bit of lore built up in this for a multiplayer map.

    The map works really well performance wise, though there may need to be balance tweaks and bug fixes like any map out there. I wish I had the time to dig extensively in the map and give a lot of feedback, but this is what I have for now. Map approved, 5/5!

    Judging by the screenshots, this looks absolutely insane! Will have to try this one! :D

    Awesome map, 5/5. There were many things I wanted to share as followings...

    Here are 2 replays...
    I was vampire lord..
    Mega File Upload - vambelord.w3g
    My friend was... the broken archer captain... He used almost all abuses that I wrote above.... so overpowered. I left even though I had 30 minutes left... I did not think I could keep up with him... he would surely come and kill my vampire hero and my hero had no way to counter it.
    http://www.megafileupload.com/fxPP/brokencaptain.w3g

    Currently, players that play this map could figure these abuses in 1 or 2 games. After they knew it was gg.

    Vampire had no chance to win... at this moment.

    Perhaps the vampire of all human hero level high up after will appear very helpless, I more than once by a human hero killed, so I sometimes at night in trying to kill the king to try to win
