    I personally dislike the Eragon series. I do recommend the Wheel of Time series though.
    Artemis Fowl is also a great book, although that would probably serve as inspiration for my goblin map more than it would inspire your map.

    But anyhow, Wheel of Time is pretty great.

    Artemis Fowl is awexome; gotta get a hold of that newest one ("Atlantis" something).

    Wheel of Time is, of course, even more awexome; I'm on 12 currently on my first read-through, and I'm loving every bit. Gogo Robert Jordan & Brandon Sanderson!

    Not at the moment. The story is still developed by Chaosy. I don't have other news sadly.
    --------
    We're still on it.

    I am back!

    So, development has been going slow the past weeks mostly due me being a lazy.. whatever I am. It was my intention to plan story and/or brainstorm for inspiration and ideas until easter when I had one week of free time to finish chapter 4. However, I got surprised with a skiing trip to north Sweden, (I live in south Sweden) I didn't bring my computer obviously so I was unable to work up there and didn't have internet to inform everyone about it either. I guess I should have done that before I went there but I actually thought there would be some computer I could lend for a minute but no.

    now to the future for the project.

    with grades coming up as we close in on the summer I doubt I am able to make great progress on the map. The previous reason together with the fact that I am quite a multitasker when it comes to games, I play hearthstone, LoL, WoW (retail), WoW(private server for RPing) and then wc3 from time to time.

    So with that said I will (more or less) put the project on hold until summer break, however since Heinvers worked hard on the terrain I feel guilty for leaving his work. So if anyone wish to continue with the map meanwhile that would be fine by me. If anyone would be interested in doing that you can just thrwo a PM over to either me or Heinvers as he should be working with that person afterall. To clearify, I wont leave the project or throw the "leadership" away if I may call it that I would lend it to someone else for a while. The person would ofc be credited for his/her work and hopefully being able to work with us even when I am ready for action again.

    Hopefully you all understand and accept my reasons.

    EDIT:

    @story questions

    It is a alternative story of a real warcraft events, main characters do exist in Warcraft lore etc.

    no one has shown interest so nothing has changed.

    @grand
    I will try to remember your name until the moment I resume the project.

    @arthas

    Aighty, I have started to work on the campaign. However I wont work a lot on it until the 12th. But progress is still progress. I will make sure to upload new gameplay screenshots from one of the sub maps of chapter 3 in a few days. Chapter 4 is being worked on but I think I will have something ready in 1-2 weeks.

    It's refreshing to know that people like this, oh and can you ask a moderator to close the poll down? I think we already made a rough guess of what the people around think about our project. It's pretty useless to still have the poll anyway.
