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...

    EDIT EDIT
    added my idea of a story line for the swamp level. Please read and leave comments ! (good comments =D)

    That is what i mean. I find it better than the piece of wood lol.

    Well, I've been thinking about your problem, and i found a solution. However it is a complicated one: To make that ability a triggered ability.
    That problem would be fixed using JASS. We could use "SetWidgetLife()" function to make the damage and we could use "AddSpecialEffect" for the fire in the hammer.
    This would be the very easy part, now the difficult part would be to detect the "autocast", which, as far as i know, can only be done with immolation. However i am sure there is a way to use autocast, i just don't know it yet.

    Sure, yo can try this map, it is a very good item system. There are others to simulate diablo's item system and such, but i believe you are looking for something like this:
    http://www.hiveworkshop.com/resources_new/spells/44/ - this uses game cache like requested, but there are other as well.
    I can search for more if I have more time. Also, this system allows you to choose the hero level stats (or you can just ignore the function and remove it)

    Killed MieWho !? I find it difficult to memorize the names of the monsters i kill lol.
    Do you mean the doom lord of the portal ? He left two nice items in deed =) (Fradz has the super sword, because it won't stack with Phodom's =D ).

    About the suggestion i have 1 in mind: Before the swamp that region was a nice forest and a beautiful area. However, the war of the dragoons scared the land, leaving many trees with the evil of the dragon's in they "blood" and so the forest became corrupted. Now the bad trees are allied with Xvareon. However a set of ancients still fights to recover the the forest to its glorious past. This is the reason, now the two factions have been fighting for ages. The bridge was broken due a war fatality - the ancients sent a tree to get help for the castle, but the infected trees discovered the plan, killed the messenger and than destroyed the bridge, leaving the ancients isolated with no chance to ever get reinforcements and to die.
    When Phodom arrives, the ancients are nearly dead, the war is going bad for them, and their only hope is to get a magic recipe (of items Phodom can get) and to start channeling a powerful magic spell. During the channeling the ancients will be heavily attacked and Phdom must defend them from the enemy assaults from the different fronts.
    During all this process (and while getting the ingredients for the recipe) Phodom meets an infected creature that knows the black hooded man. After defending the ancients while they channel the spell, Phodom also has to destroy the dragon heart, the evil item that originated the whole process of death and decay in the forest. Now, the bad trees will defend that item as hard as possible, from the attacks of the surviving ancients. Phodm must be fast, otherwise dragon reinforcements may arrive to aid the bad trees.
    When he is close enough to the item to destroy it, than the bad trees use their last hope, they summon the Urghal (the ugly boss) to defend the item. However the boss is pure evil, and can not be controlled, killing the creature that Phodom met (thus killing his chances to know where the black hooded man was) and killing most nearby bad trees near it.
    With the summoning of the monster and its unexpected reaction everything is in a chaos, with bad trees running for their life's and good trees trying to run and kill bad trees.
    During this chaos, Phodom must kill Urghal to destroy the dragon heart item before it is too late, and before the monster takes any more answers with him.
    When the item is destroyed, Phodom returns, a hero to the forest ... However the ancients do not have any gold nor items. Phodom is not worried, "Doing good and saving innocent life's is enough reward for a dragon slayer", he says to the ancient.
    The ancients get very admired with his attitude, and so Phodom enters the story of the forest, gaining honor points, the friendship of powerful animals and a statue, raised by the ancients, to remember the eternal hero.

    Hope you like this story, although it is a little bit complex, i think it is great for the campaign =P

    I'll select some of my musics and i shall send them to you commented with an idea when i have time.
    Also, you should NOT type your email like that, spam Bots and email bots will sure find it and use you personal email for trojan attacks and such (trust me, this things and worse things DO happen).

    I will post a video as soon as i can. Also I will soon explain you my secret. There is also a chance that i make a tutorial of it for THW, so every1 can use it an learn with it.
    Problem is that i can't pick any flowers, because there is no "flower item". Also, what happens if i give flowers to the wrong camp ?

    Here is Item bug in a video. Worry not, i shall teach you my techniques, that is a promise, you'll just have to wait a litlle.
    I am in chapter 6 now=)

    Also i shall soon find better item systems.
    Btw, plz comment my suggestions =P

    Btw, kingkrick, i believe he mentions chapter 4, although i am not much sure.

    Also, the interlude 2, i don't think that a reference to the monster of Amstetten is such a "pleasant and good idea" .... it already shocks people to know such monsters don't exist only in the TV, mention them in here is a little bit ... to bad =S

    EDIT EDIT EDIT
    I added the story line ... it is a suggestion, you may want to make it different, however it gave me a lot of trouble =S

    This is a suggestion. it can be optional, but i can easily make it main.
    Cinematics would be at least 3 or 4.
    The objectives are still under discussion. But it would something like: Find the items for the spell, defend the ancients while they channel the spell, attack the bad trees after the summoning, to destroy the dragon heart before they call for the dragons help, kill the boss, and finally, return to the ancients to report success.

    We can spice things even more. Per example, we could forced Phomdom to meet the merchant guy, which can sell one the summoning items for the ancients spell; or we can make the merchant reward Phdom with a needed item for the recipe.
    There are many choices you can have.
    I already though in a nice start, with text and all that stuff. I will write it here for you to evaluate it.

    Did you check the link i posted ?? Btw, did you see the movie bug ?

    Start of story (main mode):
    In the start, Phodom is confused (we can use the beggining cinematic, where phdom does not know why the black hooded man went there). After crossing the first bridge he goes up a little mountain which grants him nice vision of the map.
    But he sees something wrong, he hides in the bushes.
    He sees two massive armies, on of ancients (good trees) and one of infested (bad trees), each army with a champion. Phomdm is interested: "I wonder why this two armies are here .... this may be interesting better watch closely what happens ..."
    Then he hears the two sides preparing for war:
    Good side, the chapion speaks: My brethren ( = my brothers) we are here today to make our final stand! We must hold the line while our leaders prepare the defences for the spell !! If we fall, our good forest will be doomed to the fire and darkness of the dragons !! Remember, wars go and come but our soldiers are eternal !! Eternity awaits my brothers !! HOLD ON THE LINE !

    Bad side, the infested champion speaks: "Today our enemy meets his end in the many pages of history !! Today our prophecy shall become real and today we shall rule this forest !!! Remember who dares wins ! Soon we shall all be feasting in the gold and power of our mighty dragon masters, just like our prophet, said !!! For Xvareon Attackk!!! "

    The war starts, Phondom watches intrigued. The trees must be wrong, after all he man defeated the dragons many years ago. There is no such thing as dragons, the trees must be out dated ... Who is Xvareon !? or what is it ?

    However, Phomdom's thinking is interruped, the bad trees defeat the ancients defences rapidly and soon he sees the good champion surrounded the little infested trees and by the evil champion comanding them.

    Bad champion: "Fool of you to think you could ever defeat our might !. Look around you, your brothers are all dead, but we are generous, Join us, join the prophecy, and become one of us! If you don't like it, then die and join your fool brethren !"

    Good champion: Never ! I shall never join you evil minions neither the stupid prophecy of your black hooded creature !!! If this forest needs a sacrifice, than it shall have one !"

    The good champion starts defending himself from the evil guys, but he is lost, they are just too many.
    Phodom, listenning to all this, is blinded by rage.
    Phdom: "What !? Black hooded creature!? IS IT POSSIBLE HE WAS TALKING ABOUT THE BLACK HOODED MAN ???? ARRGHHHH this monsters !!! I shall end with them and with their miserable master !!! Hold on, I am comming ! you are not alone !"

    Phondom says this and goes help the good champion. The ancient obviously knows something about the man he is hunting, and so he must protect him.

    Phondom joins the fight, and together with the champion they kill all little minions, and start fihgting the evil champion, however, the bad champion is quite powerful, and so he kills the good champion.

    Phondom: "Nooo ! my answers !!! "
    Bad guy: "Fool human, you will share his fate, for trying to help him !"
    Phondom:" ARRGGHHHH, tell me everything you know about the black hooded man before I crush you into dust ! (he is real angry, his answer were took away, just like his family)"
    Bad guy: "HAHAHAHA, I see you know our prophet !, I will be greatly rewarded when I kill you !, die !!!"
    Phdondom: " ARGGHH you monster, you and your prophet shall pay by what he did to my family"

    And so they start fighting, and phondom nearly kills him, but when the bad guy is about to die:
    Bad guy: "Arrghh I was defeated! how !"
    Phomdom: " Talk now, or share the fate your prophet will soon have!"
    Bad guy: " Nooo (he recognizes he is a dragon slayer), there are only one kind of humans that fight like you... dragon slayers !!! you must be one !! That is why i couldn't defeat you !"
    Phdondom: "you couldn't defeat me, neither your prophet !! now start talking !"
    Bad Guy: "Never !! soon i shall meet my brethren and warn the dragons about your comming, you will be dead !!! (uses a spell and vanishes)"
    Phondom:" NOOOO arrrgghh !!! again !! That tree is my map to my avenge my family, I shall find it now matter the cost !"
    Ancient (still alive, but very weak): "Ahhh it is so cold .... i see you fight most bravely young human ..."
    Phomdom: "I did .. in times ... but now things are changed ... you fought bravely as well tree, and you are still alive ... tell me everything you know about their prophet !"
    Ancient:" I am afraid I can't ... I already feel life going away ..."
    Phondom: " Damn ! than i shall help you ... it is my duty as an honorable warrior ... however i am afraid i can only heal humans ... and you are a tree..."
    Ancient: "It is ok, I died like I should, a hero to my people ... I just fill sorry i couldn't save my honor to die with it ..."
    Phomdom: " You died in battle, that is honor !"
    Ancient: "but i failed my mission ... i was supposed to hold on the lines and i failed... now my home land shall fall and the hope to restore the forest shall fall as well..."
    Phomdom:" Mmmm Not as along as I live ! Tell me wat can I do to help you, and i shall !"
    Ancient:" Mmm very well, i have no choice but to trust you human ... Go north (or other direction, where the good base is) and tell them what you saw ... Tell them the first defenses were destroyed, and they must be aware of an incoming assault ... do so ... it is my last wish ..."
    Phondom:" So be it, I shall do your last wish, you can die in peace"
    Ancient: "may Elune (or some God of the forest" watch over you and give you good luck ... about the hooded creature you are looking for ... talk to ... talk to ... "
    Phondom:" to who !?"
    Ancient: " talk to ... (he dies)"
    Phondom:" DAMN !!! so close ... it is obvious i must help him if i ever want to know my next move to have my revenge !"

    End of movie, player has new quest, find the base (per example)

    EDIT EDIT EDIT
    Bug found !!!
    I assume you mean, blue key ?

    Oh yea but I didn't watch them yet. I will watch them now! Oh yea I saw that video bug. I will check it out once again then.

    Yup, that's a bug. I tough I fixed it because someone mentioned about it before.

    I think I have fixed that bug also! Strange. X_x

    And about your story, Flame_Phoenix I will make something like that. But not now, I think it's more important to make this first beta version. Then I will add some nasty stuff more to campaign like this. Your idea is very interesting and I won't forget it. Thanks man!

    Chapter 8 still needs 1-5 test time and it's finished. It only have currently 3 optional quest and some other things not much but I think it's more important to finish first basic main things and add more later.

    Please comment the suggestions about the item system and the video. I can find more if you want.
    Anyway, expect some e-mail with musics or teaching how to record your screen soon. (I will need more time, but i will do it!)

    Damn you kingkrick for being faster than me !! =P

    Still, i found a bug no1 reported so far !!! MUHAHAHAHA
    It is a bug with the Archenon item. It adds the "hide" ability to fradz. However, in map 6, Fradz gets new levels and a new ability called "Lightning ball" or something. Problem is that is Fradz has the item, he won't be able to use the ability, because there is no space left for the icon of the ability !!
    The Hide ability given by the item takes 1 square needed for Fradz abilities. So the player must choose between having the item or choosing the new skill, which is wrong. In my case, i just left the item behind.

    Well, if you intent to leave it for later, than it is Ok, although i recommend you pointing it somewhere b4 i forget it.
    Also, How many maps will the campaign have ? 11 ?
    Because the orb has 11 parts ... and so far there are only 8-9 maps with 1 part of the orb only =S

    There is also something that is troubling my mind and that I must ask:
    - Is there a chance in the world, that you make an image with names in the introduction of the campaign, with some of your best alpha testers ?
    I believe i speak in name of all alpha testers when i say such thing would be better than a small movie in the end that most people will ignore =S

    EDIT EDIT

    Btw, i found this map, it is an expansion to the bag pack system i presented earlier.
    It is better and it allows you to have "pocket shops". I think you will find this most interesting.

    Skrakar, thanks for those links. But I'm not a jass type man and I don't undertand anything about jass. Also it seems like that if I would put that item thing to campaign it would need me to put all my over 300 items to that thing. Also I'm sure that it won't work when chapter changes. Well, thanks anyway for suggestion.

    About the item system look down. I hope to get soon some musics from you, thanks. Now I can take videos. I downloaded "FRAPS" program.

    YAYAYA! Need to change that ability to something else. You might have a nice suggestion spell?

    Damn you !! I was planning to surprise you with a mini-tutorial with some tips and explaining the programs and techniques i use ... but you just couldn't wait ...
    Anyway, my advice is remove FRAPS and download Camtasia. Camtasia is the best program you can ever find to record your screen and has many possible outputs for a single file.
    After that your movie can be easily edited with Windows movie maker (like i did), and you can add sounds with soundForge 8.

    Anyway, talk to me if you change your mind.
    About the musics i am picking some now =P From a movie called Beowulf.
    Yes I have a suggestion. Keeping in consideration this item is special for Fradz (Fradz is the 1st one to get it) you could add a passive ability to the item. This passive ability would give the wearer a 15% chance to double attack an enemy.
    The double attack spell is very common and easy to import, you will find no trouble finding one in THW.
    Now imagine the power of the combination, when Fradz uses his "Blade Dance" ability with this item ... nice hã ?
    I mean, the orb has 11 parts, but there are only 7 maps yet. So, if you find 1 piece per map, you will never be able to complete and finish the orb ... you should fix this =S
    Thx a lot really. I do appreciate that.
    You should also see other campaigns where I participate, such as the Pyritie campaign.
    They are hosted projects of THW.
    I found it weird to believe such thing. The last system i suggested has no bugs, and works with game cache as far as i know, so in my opinion it would be perfect for your campaign.
    However, about the boxes, that is a classic. I think we could improve. Why don't you give each hero an animal mate, with it's won personality ? The animal mate would travel with the heroes, being part of their feelings and being part of the story.

    However, if you feel this is a "too much disney like solution" you can also create special shops called "banks".
    Banks can save your gold and items for a small fee, this wouldn't be hard to do.
    Banks can even increment your money by X every quest completed, or every level.

    This are my suggestions for now.

    Also, more bugs were discovered:
    - In chapter 5, when Fradz and Phodom see a trebuchet that wants to destroy the castle "Lollox".
    You see a black box talking to Fradz ... In my opinion, you should replace it by some poor peons. It would look nicer and it would make more sense (the trebuchet would not be fired alone ..)

    - In chapter 6, the music only plays during the first 20-30 seconds, than it just ends and we can no longer hear it =S

    - Again in cahpter 6, when I go to kill the king (with a belt that grants more 400 hp) Phodom gets damaged during the walk, like he is inside lava, for no reason (only Phndom is damaged, Fradz is not ) You should fix this, maybe to damage Fradz as well, or not to damage them (which would make sense, since the path is not lava).

    - Btw, in chapter six, after opening the white gate and killing the demon lord and the hell pigs, i tried to use the item "hell rain" or something like that, and that item didn't work =S

    No I won't!

    Hehehe... Hahahaha... ! Never heard of Camtasia & SoundForge 8, I will try those soon.

    Okay, nice!

    I have those magazines that gives abilities like that(critical strike, evasion, etc.). So I need something else. Sorry!

    So you mean, some chapters are missing those orbs? Okay I check it out if I have made a mistake.

    I tried that once. But I didn't liked at all. I tried it twice and both time I got fatal error. First time when I ate some pancake and second time when I played piano. =/

    Can ya give link again, please? I check it out again.

    Black box? X_X

    I will fix it.

    What king? Where is that?

    I have some problems with those spell items. That's why I want people to make some for me. Maybe you can? :D

    Sooooooo.... chapter 8 is almost finished. Tomorrow I will release next version if I have done some nice puzzles to chapter 6, 7 and 8.

    Already sent, them, plz comment your opinion.
    I didn't see any "double attack magazine". Anyway, than you can make it a knockback spell, for example.

    Those errors are long time fixed as far as i know. Still if you experienced them you should talk to Pyritie and post something in the bugs forum.

    Something (which is nothing) is just talking to Fradz .. run the cinematic to see my point...
    I forget the name of the king (something like xor, not sure)
    He is on the left side of the maze in level 6.

    Yes I can. Because they only need to have 1 ability, it's easy, because it is for single player and can0t use vJass, it's even easier.
    Just tell me what I have to do, and it shall be done (if i can lol)

    Btw, what about all my other suggestions ?
    Comments plz =P

    Btw, did I mention i can edit any music i want ?? Like cut, paste, and add some minor special effects (fades, per example) ??
