The Fallen Paladin - Escape from Lordaeron v2.2
Created by Artelium

Map Info:

The story of this map takes place right after the ending of the Human campaign in WC3 ROC. After killing his father, Arthas must escape the city. As Uther has just returned, the main gate is sealed of and the prince must escape through the city streets. He must now battle the forces of Lordaeron, including the Silver Hand. This journey will eventually drain Arthas of his humanity and transform him into the death knight he is destined to become.

The events of the map will mainly be seen from Arthas angle. However, some parts of the story will be seen through the eyes of Sylvanas Windrunner and Uther Lightbringer, as they chase Arthas through the streets of Lordaeron. Arthas will also get help in his escape from the forces of evil.

As I was inspired by the gameplay of Diablo, I decided to lock the camera view to the character controlled at the moment. Most of the map, you are a single hero fighting hordes of enemies.

The gameplay time is somewhere between two and three hours. I hope you enjoy it!

I welcome suggestions on how to further improve the map!

Video preview:




Battle your way through the massive city of Lordaeron as you attemt to escape the forces of light. Play mainly as Arthas, as a fallen paladin and a death knight, but also as the ranger Sylvanas and the paladin Uther. Many cinematics are added to give life to the story and the characters.

Some notes about the map:

This is obviously not the official lore of Warcraft. It is meant to be an interesting RPG map taken place in the WC3 universe. Most of the characters are taken from the official lore, but some where created by me so there would be some good guys to kill.

    Comment: Credits in-game are also needed.
    The map is way too boring, no custom spells, horrible cinematics, terrible sound/dialog timing and the terrian is too bland and empty.
    Check out some tutorial first. (see links below)

    Looks pretty good! One thing though... what is a "Paldin"? A sort of Paladin?
