The Chosen Ones
Single-player RPG


Story
Background Story
Twelve peaceful years have passed since The Great War ended. The war that lasted centuries but no man could recall the reason of. The age of despair, bloodshed, loss and grief is now past. The new age brought the opportunity for human kingdoms to rise, as humanity has broken free from the grip of the dragons.

This story focuses on Kingdom of Balgaron and three famous Dragon Slayers: Phodom, Fradz and Galeoth. Each of them starts their journey in different places, but they will eventually meet eachother and join forces along the path. Together, the three are forced to go a conflict beyond their imaginations.

Lead them into an epic world, guided by a strong storyline that covers hate, love, war and peace.


Phodom
Fradz
Galeoth
The honored Dragon Slayer Phodom gave up his life as a warrior and began a new life with his wife and his children, far away from the capital of Balgaron in the small town called Dalli. All his plans were going smooth and easy until someone steps into his life and changes everything... Fradz is a young energetic Dragon Slayer known for his short temper and bad manners. This silly thief is a very powerful warrior and it is said that he even killed powerful dragons single-handedly. After the war, Fradz went on many journeys, but one day a mysterious voice told him to travel to the famous Dragon Inn to meet someone who was once very close to him. Fradz accepts this new journey, as he knows that he cannot decline it... Galeoth, the son of a legendary Dragon Slayer lived up to his father's name and became one of the leaders of Balgaron. After the war, Galeoth still believed that the war was not yet over. His obsession to find dragons led him towards the Icy Mountains where he is about to uncover a horrible secret that will change the fate of mankind...

    What? Why?! That was one of the best things that made this campaign so original and outstanding compared to others.

    I feel like the system only irritated people more than it gave any fun 'factor' and positive buffs.

    But I'm open for new ideas.

    Those are most likely just gazillion of noobs who checked the map out for the first time. Believe me, Mr. Aeroblyctos, vitality system was the thing which made this map fun, challenging and realistic above all other FT based rpg maps. It made this map stand out amongst all the other ones. You would remove an entertaining feature by removing it.

    Nicely made!

    Hey Aero

    This game is really fun. :) It is definitely worth the time you spent making it and I could tell that you put a lot of thought into the story, characters, battle systems... basically everything.

    Some suggestions:
    1) I've only played your most recent 1.7 version and the vitality system did nothing. I looked at the posts and you said you disabled vitality, what does vitality do? Is it like energy? If you are going to disable it please disable the vit items too because they just take up inventory spaces and they confuse newcomers to this game... like me.

    2) This game is quite overwhelming in the beginning. There are so many skills and it wasn't until I died twice that I realized you could meditate to heal... I just used all my potions and died.. lol. And it wasn't until the second chapter that I realized where to dig. Maybe the beauty of this game is that you can replay it and still find new mysteries but it would be very very helpful if you changed the tool tips into the quest log slot. Then in the 1st chapter you can have a hint that just says look at the quest log for more help or you could just make it pop up at the start of the game.

    Example:
    Actions Tab
    Dig- Find a dark patch on the ground and dig for a treasure. Digging level--> better treasure.. etc.

    Alchemy- Making potions by gathering flowers and flasks. Alchemy level= better potions

    Meditate- Heal 5% by resting. Gets interrupted when moved or attacked

    Stealing-

    Items Tab
    Item Sets-

    Items- Common, Rare, Unique, Legendary, Epic

    Forging-

    Other than those things I don't have many other complaints. This game is awesome and really fun. I love how there are so many side quest options so keep up the good work. :)

    5/5:thumbs_up:

    Edit: have to wait 10 days... I'll come back.

    Excuse me, I not quite understood...is Uummut going to be fought by us? Along with other death knights, just as a mini-boss? Isn't he too powerful for that? Or he'll be fought separately, as Chapter 9 elite boss for example?

    Vitality is an old system that will be removed most likely completely.

    The next version will have a hint system helping new players.

    Uummut is part of chapter 10 epic boss fight. The fight has many phases and Uummut is one of them. And yes, he's very very very powerful.

    Mmmmm, that's very interesting...So we are to fight not just Zylcious in his human form, but also Uummut and Zylcious in his dragon form!
    By the way....we've got 3 more dragon slayers with us (Iibrod and his team). Will they play their role in the story? And what about Iibrod's model, is it fixed?

    Well I don't want to spoil so much, but you'll fight against death knights that are in there, zylcious in both human and dragon form. It will the most challenging battle in the campaign with many phases and cinematics! It's gonna be a thriller.

    The other chosen ones doesn't play such a big role like the ones you can play in this campaign.

    Iibrod model bugs?

    Yeah, It really bugs. In both cinematic Ch7 and in Ch8 he looks like a dark spot. When he speaks, no face is shown. By the way, here are more bugs in Ch8. Hopefully, most of them are already fixed, but just in case you've missed some of them: when Ch 8 starts, all the spellbook spells fall to level 1. All the improvements are gone. E.g., frost armature shields only 1 person, however I improved it to shield all the heroes... Also, when Phodom fights Gaomdo, only fire spels are accessible. But, after the battle, lightning and ice spells do not return. Also, Phodom's model becomes locked, he can act, but animations of his model are broken, he becomes like a static doll.
    Yes, one more thing here. Is "The Healer" in Ch8 a mini-boss or an elite boss? In the quest menu it's shown as an optional mission, but the music during the fight is like of an elite boss. Btw still have no idea how to kill him. When I get him to zero hp he turns into infernal again, constantly heals to full and kills any character in 1-3 seconds. But, I guess, I just have too weak items...

    I ve played this campaign 2 years ago. Is has been that great that i played it twice. I suppose there is no need to add any advices, in fact it would be senseless, cause this was 2 years ago. As a wc3 campaign lover it is hard to find the No1 of all campaign,
    but, i suppose, this campaign could really be the best campaign i have ever played!

    5/5

    everythink is just awesome
    and dont stop workin on that baby ;)

    Okay so Iibrod model bugs. I'll have to ask someone to fix the model because I have no knowledge about modeling. The Healer is Elite Boss and I believe I fixed the fight... Some time ago.

    Thanks SirGareth.

    Hi, I've found another couple of bugs in Ch8. I crafted Tera Ring, but it doesn't work. I can click it, but the spell is not castable.
    Next is about the quest about crystal golems, troll shaman gives it to you. First of all, it is marked as "completed" from the beginning of the chapter. When I actually take it, another same task appears in the task menu. And, by the way, I cannot complete it. The golems just keep respawning. There is nothing usable or clickable it the cave, so I have no idea what could I do.

    Also, Gaomdo fight is HEAVILY bugged. For example. His rotating skulls spin, shoot, I evade them, suddenly after 3-4 seconds an animation appears on me, I get damaged, then it hits me again and I die!!!!! Sometimes damage goes from nowhere, just stunning and killing me as if i was hurt by his skulls. I just HATE him for having to reload the mission every time from the beginning because of the combat king bug. And by the way, where can I find a shaman in Ch8? I desperately need lifes!

    Geezer, the shaman is located around the troll village (north-east), you must pay attention if you want to find him, he and the troll have same model.

    Okay I added those bugs down. Yes Gaomdo bugs strangely, mostly because of the game speed... That is strange and I decided that you're no longer able to change the game speed to prevent bugs like this.

    I'm right now doing final touches to the campaign and the next version is now very close. I'll still give few people to test the campaign so that the next version will have less bugs as possible!

    EDIT: One thing I wanted to ask from you guys. Did you get any experience by completing quests at chapter 8?

    I took a look at the last 2 pages and no comments were done about this bug, so I'll post it here:
    Bug:
    I'm playing version 1.7 and theres a bug with Phodon. I've gone up to chapter 6 right now, on Chapter 4 (Phodon goes to the swamp) I was playing and suddenly, during the boss fight, Phodon fell from 1800 hp to 500, then to 250, then to 50. I was running from the boss, thought it was some kind of special attack. Then it rose back to 550. I was using Avatar to rise my hp whenever I could, still running to avoid dying.
    Those HPs I said happened just after avatar was off. I had to re-start the chapter (wasn't saving at the time). Then I finished the chapter and passed on to chapter 5.
    On the next chapter, I did the whole chapter normally, up to the boss fight. I had normal hp during boss fight, but after I killed the boss, my hp went down to 400. I tried finishing the chapter, even though the data from last chapter is carried over to the next chapter I took my risks, hoping it would reset my hp.
    On the next chapter Phodon was dead since the beggining, he didn't even appear on cinematic. I waited for him to revive, but he didn't revive. It wasn't a lives problem, I had 2 lives.
    So I loaded my Chapter 4 data, before the boss fight and before the bug, and decided to explore a little bit more. A while after I explored the map, Phodon's hp got bugged again, down to 450.
    I tried setting it right by dropping an item which boosts hp by 500 and I died. When Phodon came back to live he had no mana/life regen and his hp was invisible. I put him to meditate, got some mana and tried healing him, to no use. So I load the game again and here I am.
    Gonna play more, try not to bug the game, but I decided to let my experience here. I think the bug might have to do with Avatar, but that's just a guess. I haven't observed if the bug only happens after Avatar being cast or not... I'll try to observe it as I play.
    By the way, this bug only happened to Phodon so far.

    One more thing: On chapter 1 riddle questions, it asks who kidnapped Zell, Zell wasn't kidnapped, Mark (or something like that) was.


    What I thought about the campaign:
    So far I loved it! Loved the story, the songs, the fact that the songs change accordingly to what region you are in, loved the characters, terrain, everything! The song which I like the most is the settings one, that one really touches my soul :)
    Loved the digging, the riddles, the quests, the feeding system, the puzzles, the ability to set the starting character's bonus sets and abilities... My rating for this campaign is 9001/10. Keep on making great campaigns :)

    Time to go back to Chapter 4 and try to not bug Phodon :p

    [hidden="My findings about the bug (always worth re-checking, I might add something new):]

    [Edit]
    I checked and I'm almost sure the bug happens because of the Avatar magic triggers. And the total HP doesn't go down from 2 000 to 500 only, it goes down in bits, from 2 000 to 1 900, to 1 850, to 1 700. It's not a regular basis, from what I see, but it still keeps going down... I'm not sure if it's everytime the magic is used that it happens, but it happens only when the magic is used.

    [Edit 2]
    After a closer look at it, I discovered Avatar does NOT cause bugs, the magic "Power Heal" does! My Power Heal level is 2. It boosts my HP in 250 the formula is 250xlvl and takes out the formula, which means it takes out 500 of my life. Everytime I use the magic, I get an -250 permanent total hp. I have yet to test it with other Power Heal levels.
    After I discovered this, I have used Avatar a couple times without Power Heal and no total HP change was detected.

    [Edit 3]
    Tested Power Heal level 1, it is safe, boosts max HP for 250, reduces for 250. Problably Power Heal level 3 will boost 250 and reduce 750, giving a -500 boost. This is yet to be tested.

    [Edit 4]
    Power Heal level 4 does as I said. It boosts HP by 250 and reduces by 750, giving and overall boost of -500 to HP. I'm sure level 4 and on will follow the pattern. Each level will decrease HP by 250 more (following the formula 250xlvl).

    The fix is pretty easy. Aero forgot to boost HP by 250xlvl. That's all that needs change.[/hidden]
