Sorry this campaign came out so late. I have had difficulty uploading it onto Hive, due to its large file size.

The original version of my Human Campaign was finished about 3 months ago. The reason why it had been hold off was because all the sound recordings haven't been done. The following chapters do not have sound recordings:
2nd Interlude - Tara to the Rescue
3rd Interlude - The Alliance's Reunion
Chapter 10 - The Frozen Throne
4th Interlude - Living in Glory

Despite the hold-ups, The Adventures of Rowan the Wise is complete in gameplay. Feedback is much appreciated.

Nice campain
but i cant get this to open in world edit do i need some kind of program?

he probably protected the map so people cant open it up in world edit. Or maybe your world edit is just horrible and hates you and wants you to go die so it wont open up the map. :D :thumbs_up:

nice campaign you got here.

Actually I don't think this map is protected because, I just opened it up from the campaign editor to check how he does some triggers. Though its in jass and I'm pretty bad at jass. Well its a nice campaign but some things I disliked, like how tyrande wants world domination. Although uther being tricked by night elves and turning into a chicken is pretty funny.

I just finished it, and i must say, despite the bad terrain this campaign is awesome!!!

I didn't find any bugs, except at the map with the labyrinth, the 'diamond of summoning' item is unable to get, but its useless i guess.. :)
5/5
P.S: What about resurrection of the scourge campaign?, any news or so?..what are you working on? please inform me via PM. ;)

There are 10 chapters in my Human Campaign, with a total of 15 maps. I added every one of them in.

However, you are saying otherwise. If you downloaded the campaign and only played three chapters, it is a SERIOUS ISSUE. If that is what you meant, please let me know.
Yeah, that's what I meant I will dl it again then.

nice campaign but am i the only one who thinks rowan dispite being called the wise is actually an idiot o_O?

'Wise' does not have the same meaning as 'smart'. When referring to wise, it means soemone who has had enough experience (in whatever it is that they do) to make sensible decisions or judgements. If you noticed, there was a time gap between Chapter 1 and Chapter 2, meaning that it was a long time since Rowan joined the Silver Hand.

His spiritual beliefs and experience as a paladin is why Rowan is referred to as wise. Not because he is super-smart.

I actually thought all the maps were very well done (compared to the majority of campaign maps out there that is)... and you can get the Diamond, but you have to have your Mortar Team still alive to destroy the trees till you can reach it.

anyway, not quite done yet, on the last level, but expect a nice review within the week :p
 
Once I finish it, I might just right you a guide(I wanted to do it as a personal project and/or maybe social group etc.) because I want to A. attempt to finish it without cheats, testing many strategies(if people wish to help me, I will notify you about the thread I will make, you could help a lot of with feedback on which chapters you know strategies for beating well without cheats, as well as secrets you've found) and B. help many people stuck in this very hard game who don't want to beat with cheats(I'll bet it's a low number but if it pleases just 1 person I'm happy.

If you wish me to do this turnro, I will gladly do it. You would be the first, anyway, I am up to the 6th chapter with the goblins, I got to tek, but my game did the usual shutoff sequence(no big problem I just lost the chapter because I didn't save).

But before it did, I learned a tidbit of information: NEVER explore in that chapter.
You will get your head ripped off, but I think I can see a trick to getting past the beasts involving teleportation and invulnerability...

A guide to how to play The Adventures of Rowan the Wise? I don't mind. It would be good to see which strategies people use. However, you do realise that the best advise would come from me? I know all the secrets, and have my own strategies that work everytime I play.

Here are a couple of things I will only briefly mention:

Chapter 5: There are two things you could do to win this mission. The first is to divide your forces between 3 seperate areas, teleporting Tara and your main forces to each area under attack. The second way is easier. All you do is hold all of your forces to the last gate.
Chapter 6: There are quite a few secret areas where you can recover powerful items for your heroes. One of them is the Book of Wisdom.
Chapter 10: If your having difficulty defending your bases from the undead, remember that the undead will always attack within a particular order. To get to the Lich King, you need to get through Arthas' base. You will need all three teams to attack his base.


Only some people may find the campaign hard. You might also want to consider writing guides to my other campaigns, especially Resurrection of the Scourge.

Well I'll create a guide for one of your campaigns, would you like to join the social group? You could be part of the discussion and it would really help with your maps and other maps. Also have you considered adding some *cough*secrets*cough* to your map? I'm getting the feeling that your maps are based more towards the joke side of the spectrum. Have you considered adding ridiculous secrets that are ridiculous but are also funny. (Blizz is actually one of the biggest supplier of these, you just have to find them.) Anyway, I also like some of your references. Besides that, I will get on writing a campaign guide for other campaigns, in fact I will get right on resurrection of the scourge right away, although I would love to finish the others. Maybe I should make just one guide for each of them. Anyway, think about the offer of joining my social group. You could help, considering you've finished three campaigns.

Correction: I have finished two campaigns. Resurrection of the Scourge is yet to be finished. However, I will be updating it very shortly (mainly to add in more maps).

I will also be updating The Adventures of Rowan the Wise after that, mainly to add in the rest of the sound recordings. This will make the campaign complete.

I suppose that I could join your social group. Just tell me its name and how to join.

MILESTONE: This campaign now has more downloads then Resurrection of the Scourge!

This is great, as my Human Campaign has only been on for a couple of weeks, and my Undead Campaign has been on for two months! Hopefully, it will also get more downloads then my Orc Campaign...

In a few months time, I will be updating The Adventures of Rowan the Wise, and it will hopefully have the rest of the sound recordings added into it!

It's a really good campaign, interesting plot and well deveoped missions, BUT you should consider tuning down some missions because they are simply impossible.
Specifically, almost all missions in which you have to destroy the enemy's bases are perhaps a bit overpowered and the retard it of your troops doesn't make it easier. Solo missions are flawless.
I give you 4/5, with some minor changes this campaign will definitely be one of my favourites.

I am not so sure you can base your rating on how difficult it was by your standards without first convening with others to check literal impossibility, once I am finished with my guide, just follow my example and you shall see that the missions are pretty possible. :)

I am pretty sure I can base my rating on different factors, including the playability of the campaign.
As I said, solo missions are perfect, difficult but possible, whereas most of the standard melee missions are perhaps a little overpowered. Take the last mission for example, you need to fight off constant waves of 6 enemy bases with your meagre three bases. You still might be able to win if you keep saving and loading everytime a bunch of undead dragons devastate your defences, but it is not really fun. If there is a particular way to do it you could add some in-game tips. I would slightly reduce the number of creeps per wave or make at least one base an ally used by the comp to relieve you of some camping work.
Don't misunderstand my comment, your work is truly amazing and I look forward to seeing more, but playing missions that are barely possible doesn't necessarly make it more challenging, sometimes it simply screws up the fun.

Technically the fun of campaigns is figuring out the trick to beating them. In turnro's campaigns it require skills, but there are little things that you must know. For example, the undead always attack the the bases in a certain order on chapter 10. To kill arthas' base, you literally have to attack with all of your bases. I'm pretty sure dispelling is the goal to chapter 6, however I am stuck on it, it is actually very hard.

You are partly right, but I wouldn't say the fun of the campaign consists in spending days trying to figure out the only stratrgy to complete a mission. Playabiity doesn't mean difficuty, it also means plot, side quests and the actual fun you have in playing a reasonably difficult mission.
The hints you gave exemplify what I wrote in my previous post. In-game hints are cool because they don't give you an easy, buy simply the only way to win. On the top of it, the games doesn't provide the option to select groups and assign them to keys thus making everything a kind of random, since the IT is quite retard (for instance, mages have this unexplicable habit of hanging out in front, not at the back, of your front line once they are done with auto-cast spells)
Compare the missions to those of the masterpiece called Day of the Dragon. Dragon's missions are quite difficult, not impossible, and the result is way more entertaining for a lot of people.
You need to keep in mind that there are different players with different preferences and time. I play to relax after work to finish at least a mission per evening, not week :xxd:
Anyway, as I said this is a well-done work and I don't believe that some hints would spoil it.

His spiritual beliefs and experience as a paladin is why Rowan is referred to as wise. Not because he is super-smart.

That's quite interesting, since the dictionary seems to provide a rather different reading:
1. Having the ability to discern or judge what is true, right, or lasting; sagacious
2. Exhibiting common sense; prudent

Rowan surely chose the right course of action in order to achieve a lasting sucess :thumbs_up:
Perhaps you meant "experienced"?
1. Having had experience in an activity or in life in general: a highly experienced traveler.
2. Skilled or knowledgeable as the result of active participation or practice: consulted an experienced investment counselor.

You surely develop good campaigns, but if you are looking for praise alone, and don't accept any suggestion, the request for "feedbacks" might be confusing :grin:

By the way, I do think Rowan is an idiot.

'Praise' my campaign? You don't think I like people criticising my campaigns? If yes, you are surely mistaken. There are two things you need to know.


Firstly, I encourage criticism, because it is only by doing so that faults can be found and fixed. People have been criticising my campaigns all along, so Lemming3000 is not the first. You can check the comments for 'Jeopardy for the Horde' and 'Resurrection of the Scourge'. You will find in the update comments that most suggestions people have given have been taken into account.

The only problem is that I find it hard finding mistakes in my own campaigns. An example is an essay. When you finish writing it, it looks okay, but it is required that you go over it and make sure there are no errors. Having other people go over it is essential, as they can pick up mistakes that you missed or never would have even thought of. Making maps, and especially campaigns, is the same. Therefore, criticism is necessary.

I myself like criticising other people's campaigns. If you would like to know have critical I can get, read the comment I wrote for The Danish's campaign 'Nameless - An Orcs Saga'.


Secondly, I meant 'feedback' as a broad term. Criticism is not the only form. A main reason for feedback is also to do with reporting bugs or errors.
I fount a minor bug, when I clicked on Rowan multiple times, he said Uther's -his intelligent (and boring) version's- drolls.

Other then that, there have been no bugs or errors.

Feedback can also be other people's opinion's, basically in general, or what they like and/or don't like.

It can either be positive:
Very nice campaign. Made me laugh a few times, too. I recommend it.
wow great campaign keep working!! :D

Or negative:
...bad terrain...
...some things I disliked, like how tyrande wants world domination.


In answer to your 'suggestion', I accept any feedback, so that my campaigns can be improved. I responded to Lemming3000's comment because it is a suggestion that can't be taken likely. Rowan is not suppose to be super-intelliegent, but at the same time he is not an idiot. The most I could do would be to make slight changes to the dialogue, to make Rowan appear more like a wise person.

The most I could do would be to make slight changes to the dialogue, to make Rowan appear more like a wise person.

That is precisely what I meant, instead of trying to reform the language by providing creative explanations regarding its unheard-of implied meanings, maybe it'd have sufficed to simply register an opinion and slightly change certain dialogues, at least to show the difference between "wisdom" and "expertise." As far as the plot is concerned, Rowan is "courageous", "noble," "bold," but certainly not wise or clever (intelligence is not actually part of either category, just to be precise).

Moreover, comments such as "bad terrain" or "cool campaign" are not samples of criticism. They are simply opinions because they don't tell you what is actually wrong or cool with it. The same goes for the quite lengthy explanation I gave you concerning the difficulty level, something that could easily be solved by simply adding the option to select it at the start, to suit all styles of play. Replying that the criterion is wrong would be like saying that playability doesn't exist, whereas according to all players it does.

Finally, as a matter of fact, I did read the replies to your other two campaigns, as well as having played them. I wouldn't say there are "mistakes" in your work. Different people have different likings, perhaps looking at "feedbacks" (in the broad sense you meant) in terms of suggestions instead of "mistakes" would be more productive.

As I previously said, I like your maps, but if you tell me my opinions are incorrect, you should first of all tell me why.

That's right. They are examples of other people's opinion. I suggest you read the comment I made more closely next time.

...if you tell me my opinions are incorrect, you should first of all tell me why.

I actually did. To re-word it:
Statement: I do not only accept 'praise only' feedback.
Reasons:
- I encourage criticism, as it is necessary
- Bugs/errors won't be reported
- I won't know other people's opinions, in terms of what they don't like
- Mistakes won't be fixed

Furthermore, I never said what type of feedback I accepted. You read it right the first time.


On a side note, how long have you been playing Warcraft 3 for? I would like to know if you are an experienced player or not, so I can make appropriate changes to the difficulty of the chapters in the campaign.

I've been playing wc3 for roughly six years. It seems to me that certain missions require either a straight tune down or a specific strategy. As for the latter, as I previously wrote, adding some in-game hints would be actually better than simply changing the difficuty. Of course, the only way to figure that out will be to playtest them.

Well, my friend, you may be right XD, I mean, the ultimate test would be if turnro can beat his own campaign WITHOUT using cheats, I say we put turnro to the test, and turnro, why don't you do us the honor of video-taping youself beating the campaign, I kinda wanted some tips XD. I'm making a guide, and I want to send it to you turnro to edit, also, would you like to join the social group that me and turnro are part of that makes campaign walkthroughs? It would be cool to have an experienced player on our side :D I too, have played since 2006, but didn't get TFT till 2008, so I played reign of chaos, anyway, my skills have gotten pretty good, keep your eyes peeled for my series, "Broheimean Rhappsody",(it's a high brow satirical map based on a generic plotline with many references, secrets and more, not a campaign but rather a set of maps that are sometimes like RPGs, other times call you an army, single player storymodes are what I excell at.) anyway, catch you around, and I hope you get this worked out turnro.

I would NEVER make a campaign that I could not complete without cheating. I am not a player that cheats, and only do so when it is necessary to skip chapters.

Just to let you know, I am also an experienced player. I have played Warcraft 3 for 4 years now, and have completed most of the campaigns (including the expansion) in hard version. I know a lot of strategies you can use (sometimes, its can depend on each race. The Humans in a lot of ways are the best because they are the most versatile, as well as having really powerful heroes). I have completed my own maps several times, so the best advise about how to beat each chapter would come from me.

I don't know about the video idea, though. I am unfamiliar with recording videos, especially while playing a game. However, I might consider looking at it.

Perhaps sending me the guide would be better. I can see what you did to complete each chapter, as well as adding in a few more hints and tips. By the way, have you read the tip I wrote to you about beating Sylvanas in Chapter 7?

Hi. I've played this campaign recently. It's a really great effort but I would not give it the maximum rate due to some details (to me quite meaningful):

1) custom voices: some of them are really excellent (like Rowan, Arthas or the Archmages), but some sound as if they were recorded by a 5-year-old... and are just extremely bad (like Tara, or Chapelain) - they ruined the whole "mood" for me. I guess that you should try and stick to one, good standard.

2) difficulty: Some missions are just impossible to get through. The one when you have to win 2 rounds of battle with Faceless Ones and then the last mission, when you control 3 players. These were the hardest... but throughout the game you could find some more moments in which the things turn out to be too hard.

Overall 4/5. It's really fun playing this :) Keep up the good work.

I will decrease the difficulty of the campaign when it will be uploaded next. I will also be changing a couple of custom voices (for other reasons), as well as adding more in. I would like to know in more depth your likings/dislikings about the custom voices.

Were you high when you wrote the Uther/chicken level? Don't get me wrong, I loved the campaign and the storyline, maybe because I was high when I played it. Good, solid voice acting, no Engrish (unlike some campaigns), well designed levels with a good level of difficulty. I had to sober up and try again to beat the Dalaran level. Also, Tara the Magnificent is RIDICULOUSLY Aussie. Good show man, good show, I'm going to start your Orc campaign now. Hopefully it'll be as good.
