    We're trying our hardest to sort melee out first, we've yet to put much focus into campaign material, but we'll keep all your suggestions in mind! Thanks!

    Thanks for replying.
    Though I think there should be a bit more that the old story of Arthas dies ect.
    I dont know making him good I would love to see but a bit to too good to be true. Anyway mabey bring something other than the scourge in and then all the factions must unite (even the scourge in its own way) to kill or drive back the intruders, for Azeroth.

    No offense guys, but come on, Little Red Riding Hood is more interesting than that. What people want is a breathtaking story where evil devastates good and the good struggles to reach a peaceful life that just seems out of reach. Warcraft III got the popularity because you could play both sides, no advance of good over evil and that made the game to become epic.
    Now, I always wanted to make a sequel in the old WE, but I lacked skill and people. Nevertheless, I continued developing the story and hoping that one day someone makes a project like this one. Now, after many years, most of my material got lost, but I still have 2 campaigns written in short terms. If you are interested in seeing my writings I can send you them in a private message. Yes or no?

    I'll say nothing about campaigns other than that we're are not currently working on them - melee is coming first.

    Okay, if you start working on them one day and if you get a glitch, feel free to ask me for ideas about the story and the gameplay. I just have to add that I am really amused by your project. Keep up the good work.

    The site is down at the moment I'm afraid and may be for some time, if not indefinitely (though in that case, we'll work to replace it with another).

    The New Dawn: Storyline

    Opening Cinematic - A World in Ruin.
    All Azeroth, Northrend and Outland are in ruin. Decrepit buildings litter the landscapes. Animal corpses are seen rotting on the ground, picked at by cruel, featherless birds. The forests, too, are dead; none living walk the dusty wastelands.

    Stormwind is a ghost-riddled relic. Oggrimar's flags are torn, covered in dust. The wisps of Sacred Darnassus have twinkled and gone out. No warrior cries out in vengeance, no voices ring out to the gods. No songs are sung.

    Beyond the gates of the Black Citadel, where Arthas once sat as king, a hungry brood rumbles. Here we see one; it wears the tattered garb of an elvish priest, fighting with another for an object unknown. Others circle the duo, yammering, among them faces that were once human, and orc and elf. Their eyes betray their nature - dark and hollow, devoid of soul. Finally the once-elf falls, her tattered garb now smeared with grime and dried blood and the object she held is seen in its full light.

    It is the head of Arthas and, on it, the crown of the Frozen Throne.

    The warcraft storyline started going wrong when blizzard decided to make gameplay dictate writing (WoW). While they also chose gameplay first for WC3 they still manged to keep the warcraft universe in tact. To write wow they had to retcon and add all kinds of stupid shit; blood elves in silvermoon, amani trolls, father winter, warrior gnomes, the eredar/draenei misnomer, elves allying with forsaken and orcs and trolls. All to make wow gameplay "epic", they should have just improved gameplay or introduce more factions w/e. Personally I think that 25 little guys attacking a giant illidan is rediculous by anyones standards. A good story doesn't tell or show you what you want to here and see it has a message and a struggle with real loses. So my recommendation is if you want to make a good story start fresh right after the lich king CONTROLS arthas... so stupid that they made arthas more then a slave after ner'zul entered his body, he should be nothing but a husk.

    Of course you will need to add new characters to the story.

    I understand gameplay is essential. But you must also remember that story and gameplay must be woven together. That gameplay mechanics are written on par with video game story. Any great video game story has mechanics in mind and the gameplay is written with story in mind.

    Warcraft 1-3 were great games because they accomplished this. Any great games have also.

    This game/mod/map/campagin. Will be a great rendition of what happened after WC3 which was a giant cliff hanger. You have the Azerothian Kingdoms, Iron Forge Dwarves, Theramore, Human Surviviors in Lordaeron, the Night Elves and Druids. And hell the burning legion, kael'thas and Illidian. You have infinite supply of information. Can't wait to see the end result one day.

    I would love to see StormWind kingdoms and the Scarlet Crusade.

    Azshara would be interesting. As long as it is better than the current rendition of WOW.

    a new dawn for sargeras

    (lets say world of warcraft happens the lich king is defeated, arthus dies but ner'zhul lives, ner'zhul wandering spirit floats across the land looking for a host body that is strong enough for his spirit. Finally he crosses to the out land and stumbles across illidans' corps, he possess it. Then leads a small group of necromancers belonging to the cult of the damned and allying with the infinite dragon flight they assault the caverns of time, and successfully travel back in time. After traveling back in time Illidan/ner'zhul is defeated, but not before telepathically warning and instructing his "younger self" of the troubling times ahead.


    (Nozdormu allows this to happen, because the world need all 5 dragons)


    (also when the lich king goes back in time 4 characters are alerted to this the past lich king, past illidan, Nozdormu, medivh)

    End of prolog video

    interlude

    Now, the lich king knows he can't win a frontal assault with allied horde and alliance. So he devises a plan to bring the demonic legion back to azzeroth. The lich king hates the legion but needs more bodies, so he is willing to risk the legions wrath. Illidan had discovered the tomb of sargeras and when ner'zhul had possessed Illidans corps he had also gained the knowledge and passed it down to his "younger self". The More Informed lichking sends a lich to the legion with the location of the tomb, to entice their return. Kil'jaden can't resists and leaves at once.

    End of prolog

    playing as the demonic legion

And the slaughter starts, (as a side note: now the heroes of azzeroth know time has shifted but they don't what had happened in the future that had been lost). Kil'jadens forces stomp out local ogre, troll,and, gnoll. who are forced together and form a sudo horde called the tribunal this is led by Rexxar. As The tribunal organize and fight for survival and successfully push back the invaders. The forsaken on the other hand are completely demolished. The legion takes the under city and makes it their own. sylvanis and whats left of the forsaken flee to the docks and make for notherend due to a dream/vision sylvanis had.

The scourge is then assaulted by both nerubian and forsaken forces. The good captain from wc3 campaign is saved in his final hour by a man named medivh who then leads the last of the northerend alliance troops to battle against the scourge. The scourge takes it's losses but eventually comes out on top and the lich king proceeds with his ultimate goal of infecting the world tree with his blight.

    After their escape they were led by a raven, to derlas' tomb, saying his final good byes Kauri discovered her body was gone and instead a monstrous hole in the earth that led down to a cavern.

The spirit had confirmed that the horn was held by naga near the coast. Kauri and derla set out at once. Fighting through legion/satyr encampment and surviving a night elf ambush the corrupted refugees and their furblog allies finally arrive at the coast. To find the night elves had beat them to it, the naga had retreated to a small island and were being massacred. Quickly the satyrs rushed made quick of the unprepared Night elves who didn't anticipate Derlas' nature magic. Kauri distinguished him self as a fine warrior and was approached by a naga sorceress(namah) who also had known no other form, and despised the legion for what they had done to her people on their island home where sargeras' tome was located. She handed over the horn and offered to help the corrupted to reach the mal'violent grove. Fighting through scores of Night elf and legion, they made it to the grove. while the naga distracted the night elves, the corrupted successfully buried the horn of cenarius. But, to their dismay they the council had been waiting for them kauri, derla and their allies were been surrounded but were saved by Malfice who had learned about the sacrifice and the rebellion, rallying those satyrs loyal to him he joined with his daughter derla and burned the councils retched hides. When the legions supporters had been driven off the new corrupted were confronted by Cenarius the forest spirit who had been beside them all along protecting them.

    Woadrider said nicely what we all think.
    I don't like the idea where in different chapters you play different races. Race change must happen with campaign change. I have worked out stories for the first two campaigns I tried to make to continue the story of wc3 in world editor, but I couldn't finish them. Mine first campaign happens after Arthas became LK, you play the Scourge (with Lich and Anubarak at charge) which attacks Khaz Modan. I thought about similar advancement through Khaz Modan as in wc3 through Quel'Thalas. Also they would deal with the Forsaken. The second campaign would be a blood elf one. I wouldn't ressurect Illidan, as by my opinion it was a terrible idea in WOW. Kael and Vashj would kill the Draenei, fight with the Scourge and bring Kiljaeden in Lordaeron and the BL would be back for another invasion.
    These campaigns would also involve betrayals, some major character death, increase to lvl 20 of heroes (but other units would have stats improved, too). I had the stories worked out through chapters, but I don't have them anymore. Still I remember many things.
