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 :)

    @harkal
    to time the speed of texts and dialog is always a touchy subject because if i shorten the time people who are not so familiar with the english language complain that the texts are running too fast and that they can hardly read it, that's why i prefer to take a little more time to let them/you read =)

    i'd say the biggest issue is the sound and there are many sound errors but it's to late now to fix it so if i go on with a new cinematic i'll do better ;)

    @thedeathhunterxx
    ye the models has some issues but i still liked it and was kinda too lazy to take a new one ;)

    oh no, i meant that there isn't enough dialog.

    There is alot of walking , and they are silent for minutes. They dont speak to each other.

    there needs to be more dialog.

    I must admit...,

    this is the only great cinematic I've seen in Hive!

    Very funny, but lacks music :p

    5/5 for you.

    I loved it, how epic ! how great !
    Some scenes are insane ! When the guy gets stomp by the trap or when the harpy-demoness girl (already forgot her name, rofl) throw a rock between the heavy door to stop it ! The scenes with the ghouls are very well done too, but i think the action is a little too slow. Second thing disturbed me, there's almost no music, it's particullary boring when there is some fight and action. Oh, and there's a music bug at the credits : the creepy music when you see the undead shaun keep playing behind the rock music so thats kinda shitty, you should fix that =D
    Btw, I wanna get the harpy-demoness model, but i can't because of the map protection, can you tell me where to find it ?

    Otherwise my rating is 5/5 ofc ^^

    -Kalimdor, God, angels, demons alongside priests? Warcraft, right?
    -who wants desert...
    -a demon/succubus that controlled the element of air?
    -the ghoul was dancing on the obelisk waiting for the turtling tornado to hit it?
    -naive, that lord to step on a similar trap; not only that, he also waited instead of getting back or run forth
    -how did she take control of the ghoul!?
    -skip?

    3/5.
