~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
---Summary---


This epic tale is about a young elvish/man named Ediathis. He is called up on by King Valuran of the land to become a general in his imperial army. A mysterious character named Lady Ara escorts him to Enas Torah, the Capital of the Land. At the Capital, A council discuss there plans for an oncoming war, with Ediathis stuck in the middle. Ediathis however is no ordinary person, the king tells him this on his leave. This is his legend. This is where it all begins.


~~~~~~~
As you watch my series unfold, you will find that Ediathis must embark on an epic quest, with 3 other companions that will have betrayls, battles, wars, fight scenes, death scenes and alot of talk scenes. This is Part 1, originally titled " The Far country " but i decided to change the name.


~~~~~~~

I based this map off of the UTM, so i didn't delete the models i didn't use. But i credited them anyway since i might use their models in the future. Not only that but there are to many people to name for those models. The Credits are in the cinematic and in the WE. I dont know them off the top of my head so...im not gonna write them here... perhaps in a post.This cinematic is about 15 minutes long. Most of it is talking, but it opens the doors to the next cinematic, which will be a war scene.


~~~~~~~~~
I hope you enjoy it !! Oh and this cinematic was inspired by C market, the respected creator of the Sect of the Holy mother. I used terraining ideas and credit ideas from his work. This cinematic was all created by me. and I would like to thank Asomath for getting this loading screen up =)

-----> UPDATE 1.1 ----->

- Fixed most, if not all Spelling and grammer errors, if you find any please inform me.
- Fixed the sword through table crap
- Added loading screen
- Changed begining title effect
- Attempted to fix the thing where ediathis walks through a door, but thats still being worked on.

-----> UPDATE 1.2 ----->

- Added Mini Map Preview picture =)
- Fixed even more spelling mistakes. Keep me informed
- Fixed the " Camera going through pillars problem.
- Shortened the filename, since it wouldn't appear in the TFT map directory

-----> UPDATE 1.3 ----->

- Fixed some credits
- its now single player like its supposed to.

-----> UPDATE 1.4 ----->

- Added Different Music. Which afflicts with the filesize of the map.
- Altered some credits.
- This will most likly be the Final Version of this cinematic.
- BE sure to stay on the lookout for Part 2, which will soon hit a computer near you !

17:38, 11th Mar 2009 by bounty hunter2: A interesting kick off to a cinematic series, that can develop into something great. The usage of the music was fine, however the cinematic lacks some terrain work, and grammar/spelling especially. Approved...

    You can look in your "About Me" tab on your profile and see that it isn't part of your signature.

    On-Topic: Is part 2 out yer? :D >.> <.<
    Oh, you also used hear instead of here at one point in the script.
    I know it's not your fault, but that table keeps disappearing and it's kind of distracting.
    Also, the music seems a bit too dramatic for that scene in the house.

    Still can't wait for part 2.

    yea people are probably wondering about part 2.

    Its Still in progress. The terrain is all done, however i need to do the script. And its been a bit stale. So youll be told when its released or not.

    but its looking good the second part. Frankly its better, and a bit more creative then the first part =)

    Nice to see you updated this. I can't wait to watch part 2 :)
    Review coming up soon:)
    Edit:Done and i'm using version 2.0 of my review system :)
    *Spoiler Alert*
    My Review:(In my Opinion)

    My Ratings value

    5/5 for Perfect
    4/5 for Really Good
    3/5 for Good
    2/5 for Fair
    1/5 for Bad
    0/5 for Horrible
    For Overall Rating:
    15 - 20 for Perfect
    10 - 15 for Really Good
    05 - 10 for Bad
    00 - 05 for Horrble

    Story:5/5, the story is really "intense", you really want to watch the next part. And you describe every character.

    Quests:Not used

    Combat:Not used

    Sounds/effects/skills/Models/Skins:4/5, The models are amazing! They really attract you! Especially the portraits on the walls :) But you could add some more sounds.

    Terrain:4/5, the city, the river, the forest just look terrific. Especially the room where hes eating. But the last area could use some improvements.

    Gameplay/Fun factor4/5, The Cinematic is just fascinating! The text, the story, the models, they all make the cinematic really cool:)

    Overall:17/20, you are the first one who i'm giving such a high rating, but i might be overreacting and maybe update my review later. I would suggest: You add more sounds and improve the terrain in the last area. This is a really nice cinematic and i recommend everyone to watch it. Good luck.

    17/20: Perfect

    The beginning is kind of disconcerting. The guy is supposed to be normal...then we see him decked out in kickass armor with a glowing shield and a longsword, hardly normal.
    A few bad camaera angles, disappearing tables and cutting off character parts.
    Fantastic doodads. I lol'ed at the picture and mounted wolfs head.
