    Templars of S'ziik: A Naga Campaign


    [​IMG]


    Hello, I'm GnoobSauce. As my last project was not too popular, I decided to drop it. So, I have decided to make a Naga Campaign. I feel that Warcraft 3 is incomplete without one. Anyways, my project is called Templars of S'ziik: A Naga Campaign. Enjoy!

    Setting: From newly raised sunken temples and islands to Outland and the Icecrown Glacier, the three Naga clans establish camp.

    Characters: Arthas (Lich King), Illidari Naga, Naga of S'ziik, and the Ice-scale Naga, Illidan, Lady Vashj, and many more.

    Plot:
    (WiP) The three naga clans are gathering strength separately in order to meet up and combine their various strengths to destroy the scourge. The Illidari Naga set up camp in the Zangarmarsh of Outland and continue to thrive on the area's many fertilities. The Ice-scale Naga are set up in Northrend all the way up to the Icecrown Glacier holding their ground against the most elite of the Scourge. Meanwhile, the Naga of S'ziik are popping up all over the eastern coast of Kalimdor up near Aszhara. They are newly raised naga, being imprisoned since the high elves making their rage insatiable. A mysterious idol(ess) called S'ziik has apparently been in meditation since before the Night Elves and has finally raised up all the ancient temples. They must all join together, despite their hatred towards each other in order to destroy the Lich King and his Scourge. Will their power suffice?

    My favorite campaigns are ones that tie into the Warcraft canon, by far. I'm very excited, and I hope that you are able to complete it! I would recommend setting realistic goals, to make something that you're capable of finishing.
    Don't focus on new, flashy models as much as a great story, beautiful terrain, and fun quests. :)

    Thank you for the input! I assure you that there will be many fun things to do and I am currently working on the open cinematic; however there are MANY things to be taken into consideration when making this such as- a Naga UI, Naga warning sounds, etc. This will all be included in the game as well as all the necessary models/textures needed to make a complete "techtree". There will be fun upgrades, spells, Heroes and much more!

    You should absolutly dont care about UI when making this. First make sure you make the campaign completly playable and fun. After that add eye-candy, projekts easly die cause they make all the models at first and then realize the projekt isnt fun to work at anymore.

    Otherwise, it looks very nice. I just love the naga race.

    Edit: btw Blackmorsel, are you still working on your watcher campaign?

    Naga UI will not be my primary concern of course, but it would for sure add to the eye candy. Models, etc. Will not be a PRIMARY concern, but before release they will be needed to complete the feel of the techtree. I finished the opening cinematic, but I will not post it here yet. My next step is to develop the techtree and begin work on the Illidari Naga section. Thank you for your comments!

    P.S.- anyone that would be willing to donate some naga models, buildings, spell effects, and ESPECIALLY the UI would be given credits. And +rep (assuming by that time, I'd have 10 rep)

    Hey, this is John Galt. I'll be helping out GnoobSauce with the creation of this campaign. I'm pretty much well skilled in everything excluding skinning and extended triggers with coding.

    Yes, I've already got that downloaded and in my campaign, but thanks for the feedback and help!!! I have not forgotten about this campaign and I am still working on it, but you know I have friends, I play other games, etc... so progress will not be very fast, I have just started terrain for the first map and I have the basic outline done. I've been working on icons for some custom abilties too. You can find them in my Texture Gallery (in my sig)

    Sweet! You're back from vacation. I haven't been working much on the campaign because I've been with my family a lot. School's starting soon, but I'll still be able to work a lot on the campaign. :thumbs_up:

    I'm glad to see progress! Screenshots are quite nice.

    to MechMap: Yes, I am still working on the Watchers Campaign, but I just haven't been updating any of the topics. The prologue and first playable map are complete, and I've been working really hard on the second playable map, for which I've completed the terrain and started on triggers.

    Sorry that I have not worked on this lately.
    I am currently getting ready for school to start and am taking a small break from modding wc3. Also, with the approach of tropical storm Fay, I will probably lose power since I live in the county that it is aimed for.

    This project is NOT dead and I will begin work on it again very soon. expect updates within a week or two on the first playable map which takes place in Outland.

    Yeah, so... I took a huge break from WC3 and I don't plan on working much more on this campaign. I have every file zipped that goes along with this and if you would like to continue work on this I will send you the file :hohum:

    However, I will help you work on it if you plan on working on it.

    Do you honestly need an apostrophe? >.<

    I hate names with apostrophes, they are so cliche and overused.

    It's a fitting name for a naga, as well as it keeps the correct pronunciation of the name. Instead of Sziik (pronounced either Seek or Zeek) I want it to be S'ziik (pronounced Suh-zeek)

    Besides, unless you have anything constructive to say about picking up the project where it was left off- please, don't post.
