    Here I wanna present you my project, which I've been doing for almost one year.
    About me

    I'm a modmaker from Russia, there are many maps and campaigns in my portfolio. I decided to spread my audience and start translating my campaigns into English. This project will be my first step to english-speaking community.
    About campaign

    Plot
    The story runs parallel to the original campaigns in Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos. You will start in Lordaeron struggling with orcish clans. Further you will take part in the battle for Dalaran, revival of the Alliance and confrontation with the Burning Legion.
    Main characters
    • Ser Edmar - knight and close friend of prince Arthas (Edmar has a romantic attraction to him, but keeps it in secret).
    • Darion - wizard from Dalaran, who came to Lordaeron to help humans cure the plague.
    • Jason Howel - commander of the Lordaeron corps stationed in Dalaran
    • Othmar Garithos - baron, who leads Lordaeron army
    • Mannoroth - ambassador of Lord Archimonde who was ordered to destroy human army
    Main features
    • Nostalgia - meet old characters like Lord Uther, Archimonde, Detherok, Arthas, Kael'Thas, Kel-Thuzad and many others.
    • Original Saundtrack - music in campaign mostly written specially for it by Sergey Pokrovsky. 80% of time you will listen to new tracks
    • Voice acting - all dialogues were voiced by 13 actors (yes, it's one problem, because this is Russian actors, but all text will be in English, you will understand everything, don't worry)
    • 4 new races - humans (main race), gnomes, blood elves and demons
    • 15 new artifacts
    • 18 new neutral monsters
    • Referenses to original campaigns
    • 8 chapters and 4 interludes
    Release date
    Firstly my actors should finish their work, after what I will publish campaign on the Russian web-sites. Then I'll start translation inti English. If I have enough time, English version of campaign will appear on Hive this summer.

    Feedback

    It's very important for me to see your reaction on this. I wanna know your interests, priorities and opinions. Hope, I made a good impression on you. Thank's for your attention.

    The very green grass just next to buildings on fire and growing in the middle of a near intact street while all the trees are blighted/withered just feels weird.
    Can you use some blighted/withered variant of the grass on the first screenshot.
    Otherwise it looks awesome.

    That is great! Really happy you are willing to spend time to help share your campaigns with the hive workshop community. Hopefully we can see more campaigns from the Russian Warcraft 3 community in the future.

    I thought about it. We have in Russia many really good campaigns. It needs a lot of time to translate everything, but I can't promise I'll do it. Firstly I should finish with my own work.

    Campaign is finished, you can download russian version from XGM.
    The next step - translation into English. I'll try to cope with it as fast as I can.

    Please make sure transmission times are OK. Many people underestimste that when translating and then The text is often too fast or too slow

    It'd be a good idea to read them as the characters would say them while using a chronometer.

    It will not be a problem. I will do everything to avoid it.

    That is great news.

    I was just listening again to the music you/your team composed for this campaign. It is really good.

    Would be great to see what fans from Russia made as campaigns. There were a lot of great campaigns in China that made it here that were generously packed with action and boss fights (Of Crimson Tides, Evil Resurgent, Legend of Maiev, etc). I'm looking forward to see how the story unfolds and how the action is in each map.

    On a personal note I don't exactly mind if the VA is in Russian. If the translations are in english and I can read the story and dialogues, then I wouldn't mind the voices.

    Yeah. Hopefully we get the original voices but with subtitles.
