The Legend of Magnador

Submitted by Mizuchiro
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
This map was not made by me, i'm only 'spreading' the work of BlueEagle, the original creator. All the proper credits can be found in-game credits(Most of them is for himself though).

This is the last original version of the map, 1.04 . (Edit: I haven't altered this map in any way, this is the same map you get from the BlueEagle site: http://paulinthenet.de/war3maps.htm )

Features:

-Epic map, with lots of terrain types, from deserts to snow valleys
-Around 10h of gameplay
-Unique and dinamic inventory system - There you can swith party members, use runes to restore your health and/or mana, see a list of already open runed doors, upgrade your character's equipment, learn and upgrade your character's skills and forge yourself a vast list of equipments
-Unique battle system -characters and monsters fight in arena-like places, like Final Fantasy series
-Unique Upgrade system -Earn Combat Points through completing quests, buying upgrades at the blacksmith/magic shop or by defeating bosses, then spend them on your weapon, armor, combat skill or magic skills
-Unique forge system -After a certain quest, you will be able to use the mini-forge on your inventory to create a huge amount of customized equipments (This is the only way to obtain most part of the equipments)
-7 heros to choose from, plus a secret hero, up to 3 heros in the party
-Lots of Main quests and Side Quests
-Lots of cinematics (Esc to skip)

Each Character features:

-Max Level: 30
-Upgradeable Weapons and Armor: Max Level: 5
-Upgradeable Combat Skill: Max Level: 3
-4 Learneable and Upgradeable Magic Skills: Max Level :4


Unlocking the Secret Hero:

I'll will not directly tell how, but i'll give 3 hints, more than enough to figure out yourself.

1.Must be done after getting the Red Orb, but before giving to Gorwin
2.To unlock him, use the comand "Arise"
3.Must be done inside Feria's walls


Forge Guide

I made this from another guide. Not all of them are confirmed, but most of them were confirmed by me. Anything wrong with this game, please send a pm so i can fix it. It was made like this (i didn't included the "Unprocessed" equipments because it's pretty obvious):

Item Name/ Bonus #1/ Bonus #2/ Bonus #3/ Bonus #4/ Component #1/ Component #2

http://img200.imageshack.us/img200/4458/magnadorforgeguide.png

Bugs and other issues:

-I would love to fix some of them, but i know nothing about creating and editing maps on Map Editor, also i would need BlueEagle permission to do so. I only know how to play XD

-All Heros have Inventory Skill. When used by a particular hero, all heros will be transported to the inventory; after exiting it, all of them will be together with the caster. This can be used to "Teleport"; specially Ethan; between areas if used correctely, useful if you need to go back and forth. Notice also that engaging in battles have the same effect.

-The Teleport system, not the bug , is quite innefective; there is only a few of them, and except for one or two, the rest are not in effective locations.

-If you are using the "Reveal Map Cheat", cinematics will bug them; the map will be revealed, but the the environment will be with the fog. Simply deactivate and activate again to fix.

-Secret Character skill Cure can be used on himself even though the description says it can't.

-You can keep the Scepter of Gods after getting it on Everglade by having the Secret Character on your party instead of Fiona. (Not sure to be this way, since it happened to me once)

    2/5 for Fair
    1/5 for Bad
    0/5 for Horrible

    10 - 15 for Really Good
    05 - 10 for Bad

    Story:5/5, Well I guess the story was somehow original.
    Quests:5/5, There were alot of quests, each with a different objective.
    Combat:4/5, The combat is nice, yet it gets repetitive after a while.
    Sounds/effects/skills:3/5, You used alot of music, yet you had to do alot of things, just to get 1 skill...
    Overall:17/20,Very well made.

    Hmmm I like this a lot. But I can't really tell what you edited between the originol content. I guess you did a good job of making it unnoticable. I guess if BlueEagle even goes on this site (A profile by it says he only came in 2006) that it complies with the rules, unless I'm totally wrong about the rules.

    Played through the first quest and I have to say that it does look intresting story wise. However the terrain is not very good which ruins it for me

    Confused as to why this was resubmitted, but regardless...

    This is a very well made map. It has many original systems while still being easy to access and understand. The story isn't "Find the MacGuffin" or "Destroy evil", thank God. The only real complaints I have are the vanilla spells and the ridiculous difficulty of the last two bosses. 5/5

    This RPG is really good.
    I have only a few complaints, that force me to give it a 4/5:

    -The XP system: when you're taught windwalk, the guy tells you to not use it too much, else you'll be underleveled when you'll need to fight "real" enemies.
    Well, it seems to be totally the opposite. I am now forced to use windwalk to avoid killing the enemies, because leveling up is bad! which is the most senseless problem in the map.
    When you levelup, you only gain slightly better stats, but it's pointless comapared to the enemies who get like 2 times stronger for each level you get.
    *example: wow i levelup up, +2 damage +50 hp etc... great.
    Oh wait, why did the ranged creep of the enemy group become a guy with divine shield (invul) and massive aoe heal?! He only had a slow or something, before o_O

    -The gnolls and ogres representing enemy groups are homing, and theres a legion of them. Really annoying especially when you wanna look around the map after a fight. They respawn in 2 seconds and just jump at you... again... always... forever...

    -The quests. Actually, the way they are written in F9: only pointless info is recorded. One would appreciate to not down where to go, rather than the story why you already decided to do the quest. Especially when loading saved game...

    -The very start is extremely long and slow (painful), good thing you do it only once.

    -small bug: when Roggdor goes to Feria, you're expected to arrive from the east. If you have done heidi's quest, and have activated the teleporters, you use them & you come from the north: Roggdor ignores you totally. You have to get out of town and come back, from the east.


    Now for some good points:
    -The inventory system is really pleasant to use, same for forging etc. Wider access to the miniforge would be nice but that's a detail.
    -Enemies are various, use spells, etc.
    -Story is rich, theres much mystery, guesses. It's not a story you all figured out after playing the first 5 minutes (like in most maps).
    -Custom music and sounds, wisely used. The "forging successful" one is <3.
    -Varied nice terrain with many different tilesets/atmospheres, including for the battle parts.
    +other points i can't remember at the moment.

    I recommend this map, at least for a try. It got me busy for several hours until i get stuck at the orb of balance quest. By they way if anyone knows where they are please PM me.
