The Nagarien Curse

(by the creator of space orc stories)

Since there is a real hype about cinematic maps lately, I decided also to submit a new cinematic i just finished today :D
and because mods have gone through various cinematics lately where you sometimes wonder if ppl watch their cinematics themself before they upload them i tried to spend a little more time in it

It's a Short Story about a more or less small expedition into the deserts of kalimdor and a tomb in search for an ancient artifact

it ain't pretty long (around 10min) so everyone can take time to watch it =)

Credits are given in the end (inspired by Critters)


the biggest problem with making this cinematic was the randomness itself; because units use their stand - x animations randomly it will sometimes happen that scenes dont work as smooth as they should do (it's like 1of5 times you run the cinematic one animation will not work properly / perfectly timed)
i tried to fix that issue with setting their animationspeed to 00.00% without success
my point is; i could not do anything about it =D

Well then enough chatting: Download it - Comment on it - rate it

and the one most important: Have Fun with it :)

    @pyropk95

    - yeah u see one stone popping up - i should've fixed that

    - well what r the workers doing? digging i guess ^^
    now u could argue: well they found what they've been searching for - n i say: they're digging for other artiffacts or stuff to finance their expiditon :p
    dont think thats much of a problem ^^

    they ->"unsealed"<- it in order to get in ^^

    thx 4 the comments :D



    PS: i use to focus their heads as often as possible (in every scene)

    I'd just like the ppl who rate this cinematic 4/5 or 3/5 to comment on their decision and give reasons

    on the one hand i'd like to know what i should improve on the other hand i dont see the reason to give it 3/5 points

    plz comment on it if you rate this cinematic

    thx alot

    Shaun, the map is very good.
    It has everything the good cinematic needs to have.
    Camera always shoots from good and interesting angles, the special effects are very well placed, Terrain is 10/10!!! Story is awesome (I especially liked the end) HECK EVEN THE CREDITS ARE VERY WELL MADE!!! There is also tons of action, and a little humor on the side!!! I would gladly tell you how to improve your work, but I cant. I think this cinematic has everything the good cinematic needs to have. I can bet that lot's of effort has been put into it, and i will gladly rate it 5/5!!!

    this was a great 10 minutes of my life :p

    id have to agree with harkal though, the dialog was a bit slow.
    when they were in the ruins, they didn't talk much.

    but othere than that, the models were great, special effects were great , and the storyline was great so. 5/5

    by the way, where to you extract that arthas model ? From the interrface? Or did you get it from Hive or something.?
