The Black Company Beta v1.5

Submitted by Herogod
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Beta version.
A campaign being made by BadThrall based on the book called "The Black Company" by Glen Cook. Story intro:
Croaker spoke to assembled Company:
In olden times the outfit consisted entirely of black soldiers. Thus the name. Its slow drift northward has seen not only its diminustion but a shift in its makeup. One-Eye is the only black man with us today.
We are the last of the Twelve True Companies. We have out-endured the others by more than a century, but I fear we're into our twilight days. I fear this may be the Company's final commission. A page of history is about to turn. Once it does, the great warrior brotherhoods will be gone and forgotten.
But Croaker was wrong...Some feel the Lady, newly risen from centuries in thrall, stands between humankind and evil. Some feel she is evil itself. The hardbitten men of the Black Company take their pay and do what they must buring their doubts with their dead.
Until the prophecy: The White Rose has been reborn, somewhere, to embody good once more.
There must be a way for the Black Company to find her...

    If you want more, read the books by Glen Cook... This campaign only covers some of the events during the first book. After that, there are actually an additional 9 books in the series.

    It was pretty fun. In interesting story. But a lot of the skins looked retarted like a Orc with a mustache counts as a human?

    The description from a fan of the map:
    An interesting and involving story with lots of cutscenes,likeable characters,drama,comedy....
    A very new system overall-the battles are incredibly hard and challenging and feature the old paper/rock/scissors system with a twist....
    The gold system is absolutely new and...imo the best in any w3 map,even better than the original campaign.
    The campaign was never finished and only lasts half the 1st book(of 9-10),but even at that it took me quite a few hours,because as i said the battles are fun and challenging.I strongly recommend wasting some hours of your life on this :p
    PS:to the author,if you read this please,please,please finish it and i'll worship you 4ever.Kthxbye

    This capaign's almost perfect, though you should definitely change two things:

    1) Please, please, PLEASE, add the option to skip the cinematics. Especially towards the end, I mean, I like cinematics, provided that they don't last over 30 MINUTES!

    2) You should lower the difficult level of a few missions, particularly the last ones. They are impossible and using cheats ruins all the fun.

    That said, you did a great job. With a few improvements, your campaign will be just perfect.
    4/5

    amzaing campaign, awesome story, and incredibly hard at times (a couple times i sat there going "how the hell?") Really wish the campaign would get finished but i guess that cant be changed. I think i will look into the series and read the rest of it.

    This is truly an almost-masterpiece, sadly, i hope it would have continued. 5/5
