    Just read "Aftermath of the Second Void War" story

    But they could not locate her - in fact, they could hardly locate ANY Undead. They had all disappeared.

    You can't find the Undead, but they can find YOU.

    Vail... it was... unexpected how... close they had become. They were very similar to each other. It was a... weird feeling.

    Well, let's hope they aren't too similar right?

    "Enemies from the west, the east and the south... The good news is that we are too strong for them to take on directly. The war has weakened them all and many among them still remember who it was who ended the invasion of the Demons. They are unlikely to attack us anytime soon. Only the Tribal Dominion in the south is hard to predict. The two remaining Kingdoms could only pose a threat if they combined their forces with the Dwarves. And the Dwarves will not suddenly change their mind. They are too stubborn."

    Surprisingly, the Dominion is the most trustworthy out of the four threats.

    Your success is without a doubt most impressive. I never had any doubt in your skills and still you managed to amaze me with your prowess. You truly are the true ruler of these lands.
    You have accomplished much. More than most great rulers of mankind have ever accomplished in a lifetime.


    Wow, really Brian? Giving flattery before asking for a favor?

    The Black Dragons are a huge part of Zyainor and you owe them much. But I want you to remember something: Their Queen is... unpredictable. An old and stubborn creature whose arrogance is responsible for the fall of Old Zyainor. The nobles of the Kingdoms may claim that their ancestors did most of the work, but they were little more than opportunists, traitors and thieves. Without the betrayal of the Black Dragons, who knows? Zyainor may never have fallen. You cannot count on the dragons, even if your most loyal subject is one of them. He would oppose any decision to leave you, but the rest of them?

    Well, well, well. It seems that Aridon and Brian are truly brothers after all...

    I suggested that you get rid of her. I could have even used her to increase the lifespan of you and your wife!
    What is an ancient, stubborn dragon queen in exchange for the gift of immortality? Her shadow could have served me better than she would ever serve you in life and her life essence could have been used to make her immortality empower you rather than her with the help of my own magic. Especially when her replacement, Thanok, already is your most loyal servant and would lead the dragons in your name even if he knew what had occured? His loyalty lies with you, not with her.


    This is kind of a dick move. He is really prepared to kill the Dragon Queen, for real?

    So Thanok is now more loyal to Gardon than to his own kind? Huh...

    As Gardon had assumed. Brian. He wanted to renew his offer. Gardon still did not like it, but... perhaps he should at least consider it. One less possible enemy could serve him well and the price would be relatively low in comparison... But... should he really consider such a thing? It was below him. He stood up. She should pay Vail a visit. He'd leave these thoughts for later. For now. As he left the room, the letter turned black again.

    Good for you Gardon, my man! Do not betray those that have aided you!

    Coming in about 20 years in-story time when you least expect it to screw with YOU!

    Potential amulet manipulation is highly probable.
    And if that isn't the case, Vail hasn't had the most peaceful and quiet of childhoods, so she may relate to most of his ideas.

    It's almost like he knows how to manipulate people properly!

    Considering how Gardon treats him and how he hasn't given him a reason to be suspicious, if a scandal or murder revolving the queen happens, Thanok would most likely chose Gardon's side.
    Anyway, judging by Brian's tone, he and/or Aridon are planning to kill her sooner or later, so whatever Gardon does, it won't matter.

    If we don't end up with ninety plus gameplay chapters for the true story then I'll be surprised.

    Kasrkin is on delirium, do not listen to him. We are putting him into an Arkain Industries clinic.
    He will be cured by playing Arkain on hard 24/7. That should heal him right up.

    That reminds me Shar, of something ive been thinking about the last couple weeks. I'm assuming all 6 books, with all their chapters and more added ones that you were planning on, will be in one campaign file. I remember from editing blizzards campaigns a couple years ago, if the file is too big, it just flat out won't open. I also seem to remember a patch increasing map file size limits, so my question might be moot

    If that really caused any issues, I will split the campaign into part 1, part 2 and so on but keep it in the same map bundle.
    I do not expect that to happen, but I would be prepared.

    Then (because i dont know how to place spoiler tags) i´ll start with the first 3:
    Where Angels Cry: A deep explanation about the Saint Loraine, what happened to her after the undead take her to the death mountain. Its a pity she had that fate, she was a really nice imperial, siding with golden guard but wanting to help their family´s continent. Rahandir saved her family in the past, is saving them right now fighting the demons, that´s what saint understood before he left, he didnt became a monster, he became a protector of arkain. Even after his dead, no one can match the might of Rahandir DrakeSkull.

    Responsibilities: Truly loved this one. Saphira´s thought about her race, about the twins, about her former friend Salana. Her new purpose is to raise those childs, to heal her friend. The undead will need them in the future but that´s not something Saphira thinks, She just want to help his race, She found a purpose no one gave to her, that´s what truly matters in the end. Also both Rahandir and Saphira will raise the twins, they truly are the best couple of arkain.

    Old Hatred: Final battle between Ornasion and Hesrathion. But the main issue is his conversation with Lisara. Ornasion´s right, Lisara made this happens, she betrayed the Bloodrinker Legion, she killed ornasion, she´ll kill kersidar, she made Ornasion banish Lisara. Despite fighting for his race, she made too many mistakes that lead to this moment.
    At the end she felt regret about Lisara, about the thing she have made to save her race from extintion, but its too late now. Too late.

    Hey Shar! :) In the true story of Arkain, will player choice still be a thing? If so, will choices affect major parts of the story, or just minor things? (That's the thing I loved the most in your campaigns, the ability to shape the story in some fashion.)
