    Info
    The Second War is a campaign I'm currently making. It takes place during The Second War in warcraft history and is very lore-accurate.

    I'm working alone on the project, so everything is done by me, however I download most custom models and skins here from Hive as I do not make models.
    Most custom icons are also downloaded from Hive, as I cannot be bothered to make my own, although I do when necessary.

    The playing style of the campaign is very similar to that of the normal campaigns in Warcraft 3: Reign of Chaos and Warcraft 3: The Frozen Throne.
    I've spent quite some time changing the Human and Orc units and buildings, to resemble that of Warcraft 2: Tides of Darkness, as those events were during The Second War.
    However I've not followed it exactly, I have customized it a bit to my liking and to my own imagination.

    Most of the story I've used has been taken either from my own memory or from wowwiki, so feel free to have a look at these two links for what to expect in the campaign:
    Link 1
    Link 2

    Story
    After The First War, where the Kingdom of Azeroth (aka Stormwind) was defeated by The Horde, the survivors fled north to the Kingdom of Lordaeron, seeking aid.
    The survivors of Azeroth were led by Lord Anduin Lothar.
    And Lothar convinced the king of Lordaeron, Terenas Menethil II, to gather all kings and leaders of the other northern nations for an urgent meeting.(See characters for more info).
    During the meeting the leaders discussed the approaching threat that was The Horde. After much discussing and talking the leaders agreed to form a strong alliance against The Horde, this became The Alliance of Lordaeron.
    As all of the leaders either wanted to be in command themselves of this new Alliance, or not be commanded by any of the other leaders, they agreed that Lord Lothar would be the supreme commander of their military forces.

    At this time Alonsus Faol, the leader of the Church of Light, invented a new type of warrior through his new order (Knights of the Silver Hand), the Paladin, a crossing between holy priests and mighty warriors.
    Some of the first to become Paladins were Uther the Lightbringer and Turalyon. Turalyon was then chosen as second-in-command by Lord Lothar.

    It is Turalyon this campaign will follow through this great war between The Alliance and The Horde.

    Much more of the story will be revealed within the campaign...

    As I don't want to spoil it all, I thought it best to leave the rest of the loading screens a secret :wink:

    [​IMG]
    01.11.2013 - This is what I have so far. I am aware of all the bugs and how unfinished this is, yet it's all I've got so far. So enjoy and play it if you want. Feedback appreciated. And feel free to have a look at some of the terrain for the none-playable maps included.

    :fp: Download the unfinished campaign (Uploaded 18.06.2017)

    :fp: Download unfinished/bugged Melee map "Corin's Crossing" from 16.08.2014

    [​IMG]
    Some of the characters now categorized as a "sub-character" will probably be changed to "main-characters" as they might appear often later in the campaign.

    Some of the loading screens, or the whole project for that matter, might be changed or altered before the release. Basically, I might change my mind about the story, the characters or something...

    The characters I haven't yet written about can be found on wowwiki, as I'm basing most of the campaign of stuff I've read there.

    I'm hoping to release a demo containing the first 2-3 missions very soon.

    The mission list under "Progress" might get changed as I go along.. :hohum:

    I haven't finished the list of credits regarding models, icons..etc yet, so I hope none of the artists will get mad at me for "stealing" their stuff.. :con:

    If the project goes well and it doesn't take up to much of my time (as I'm currently studying), I might make a campaign for the horde, or the alliance expedition through the dark portal.

    I might even release a few melee maps for those who want to play multiplayer... :con:

    Also, here's a map of some of the regions used in the campaign. Please note I haven't finished it yet, but Blackrock Spire..etc will be used in the campaign!

    Looks like an amazing project!

    a little thing i wanna point out: the color code (at development progress, final part of the thread) does not seem to work well.

    If you need any ideas/suggestions, tell me. (i recently played through wc2)
    Good luck on your project.

    Thank you! I'm hoping it turns out as great as I want it too.. I have really high hopes for myself about this...

    Yeah, sorry, I'm not too good when it comes to this forum posting, I don't do it too often. I'm currently in the process of editing the post and removing such small mistakes

    Thanks a lot for all the feedback! :grin:
    Appreciate it :wink:

    That's quite a good Idea, I just might do that actually.. I'll see what I can do..

    And to those sayin' they'll be happy to help, I just might ask for extra feedback when I'm getting closer to releasing the campaign or testing, for those who are interested

    Wow, this is looking brilliant if you need any terrains done PM me i'd love to be a part of this.

    Suggestions
    - Customise the techtree more, it's looking a little too similar to wc3 techtree, not necessarily a bad thing but i'd like to see something different.
    - Campaign is already looking pretty big but will the Alliance expedition feature as a mission as in the wc2 expansion?

    +rep :D

    Looking forward to it. Will the damage/hp ratio be more wc2ish or wc3ish?

    I'll shout out if there's anything I need help with, but for now I think I'm alright ^^ But thanks a lot!

    It'll probably be more wc3ish, at least it's for now, but that's an interesting idea.. I might change it to be more wc2ish.. We'll see what happens.

    Thanks for the feedback guys!

    I'm now looking for people to test the campaign in it's current state.
    So please have a look at this link :fp: here

    The demo/unfinished campaign will be posted here under the "download" section in a few minutes...

    Thanks for the help.

    edit: 01.11.2013 - 18:51
    The campaign contains a considerable amount of bugs, and I'm too busy with my studies to have time to work on this campaign right now. But I am posting a VERY buggy and short "demo" for people to test if they'd like to.

    I like it, but the difficulty is too low for my taste. There was also a problem in the mission where i should free the elven archers. I was attacking the base when a cutscene started... i nearly lost all my units because they fought on and i was not able to do anything.

    I agree but it still has potential!
