    The Last Crusade : A Scarlet Crusade Campaign [SKIN PREVIEWS]

    [​IMG]


    Information


    Background Information

    http://www.wowwiki.com/Scarlet_Crusade


    Description

    The Last Crusade is a campaign being made by me based on the Scarlet Crusade. The campaign starts before the fall of the Scarlet Enclave to the Scourge. The Campaign will consist of atleast 3 missions.

    Mission 1 - The Defence of Hearthglen
    Mission 2 - TBA
    Mission #? - The Battle for New Avalon (possible AoS type level)

    The campaign focuses on the Scarlet Crusades struggle against the scourge, you play as either a newly promoted Protector or Inquisitor of the Scarlet Crusade.

    Inquisitor - Mage/Healer
    Protector - Paladin/Warrior


    The campaign is being made to show the Scarlet Crusade's fall and how they became the Scarlet Onslaught after fleeing to Northrend. Locations from the original Warcraft III campaigns will be featured (Hearthglen mentioned). All of the characters other than the player are taken out of Warcraft lore.

    Features

    - Custom skins for Scarlet Crusaders
    - Scarlet Crusaders!
    - Maximum Level 20
    - Custom skills
    - Unlockable secrets!
    - Multiple mission campaign.
    - AoS Finale! (Not confirmed)


    Assistance

    If anybody is willing to give any help with terraining, triggering or contributing to the storyline and planning of missions I would be grateful.



    Screenshots

    PS: A small gift.

    Thanks for the banner, looks much better.

    I'm trying to keep as much to the lore as I can but there isn't really any information of what events lead up to Acherus appearing over the Scarlet Enclave but i'm just making that up and making it fit with the lore. But all NPC's are names of Scarlet Crusader Leaders and the ranks are all proper ranks.

    I should have the first map done within the next two weeks depending on how much time I spend doing it so you can take a look if you want.

    I'll try to do a preview of all of the skins i've made. I've used cloudwolf's scarlet crusader skin as the skin for all the basic crusaders but then i'm doing skins for all the other classes.

    Heres the Scarlet Chaplain;

    I only started skinning 2 days ago and this is only my third one so it isn't all that great, i just re-textured his chest with a tabard and recolourized the rest of his body.

    I'm not sure about WoW lore, but retreating to Northrend?! That's a really dumb idea considering where the scourge's main control is. And 3 missions is okay, but I hope they're longer than 40 minutes, or this'll be really short...

    Well, i'm back from France now so i can continue work and i've got another 2 weeks of holiday left to waste.

    But in terms of mission length, the terraining is what's taking me the longest as all the maps will feature a wide variety of terrain and doodads with buildings you can enter. It's taken me maybe 4 hours to terrain the first map alone and i'm doing other stuff during the days so i'm trying to make the maps last as long as I can. The first mission is a defence mission + side quests so it will last a decent amount of time.

    Finally, after a few weeks i've almost finished the first map. It lasts roughly 25-30 minutes, depending on how quickly you find your way to the starting points...

    If anybody wants to test it out pm me or post here. The second map will be based in the city of Stratholme, but i'm not giving anything away about what happens.
