    The first one there I guess. I took my sword from the farm and went there to find a book. 3 gnolls ambushed me, I killed them and made my way back to Edward.
    Then nothing happened. He didnn't talk to me.

    I have fixed that problem before and worked ok for the people until you. I don't know dude, after you kill the gnolls you kill the bush after arlon says something, the after destroying the bush you will face another wave of gnoll ambushers when returning to camp. So try to kill the 3 gnolls where you picked the book and wait till arlon says anything, and see if that works. Altough im full of school work and later i can remaster the trigger timing not to cause problems.

    Aha I see. I will play again and what you said although you should fix things like that. I know it's hard to predict all possible situations but that's what we are here for! :D

    Sorry, the template seems broken or something because the center tags are not working. So it looks a little less neat that usual. :p

    Map Name: The Start - Episode1
    Version: 1.5
    Author: kenshi1007


    Terrain[r]
    Somewhat Warcraft like and semi-simple.
    However this is a god damn good example on how to make decent terrain without using many imports.
    Personally I am against Warcraft like terrain, but man, your terrain is pretty charmy.
    4/5



    Gameplay[r]
    Gameplay isn't badly made by any means, but it's very simple.
    There are no (activate) abilities nor advanced mechanics to keep it interesting.
    It's basically kill everything that moves and loot an item here and there.
    3/5



    Story[r]
    This is so hard for me to judge, I both like and dislike it.
    The voice acting was fine, the audio quality was about ok but due grammar mistakes it turned out somewhat bad.
    But it's clearly better than removing it. The story is to be honest pretty dull and got many logical flaws, I will mention them later.
    But you manage to keep it interesting in multiple ways and there are some not-so-common touches to the story.
    3/5



    Uniqueness[r]
    Even if I find the story and gameplay somewhat genetic, I still feel that you've got something unique that will be shown in the later maps.
    Even without that suspicion, I can see some unique touches here and there.
    4/5



    Overall[r]
    Pretty entertaining, got plenty of potential.
    Even though it felt somewhat short for a RPG.
    The overall rating would be 3.5/5 which equals 4/5 by math rules.
    4/5



    Bugs[r]
    Bugs
    *bugs*

    -You're able to kill the Clan Axemen that surround Edward when you return from the gnoll camp.



    *complains*

    -Gorsh explains that he and his 'clan' are outlaws and bandits/barbarians. Yet Arlon is like "hell yeah, I'll join you matey." no complains, nor questions asked. I would be VERY critical if I were a farmer who were almost taken away from my home by force by such people.

    -You're randomly asked to run back to the farm and get an item as a quest reward. Which is odd since it was 'too dangerous' to even live there just a little while ago. The explaination could be that the gnolls are keeping themselves to the camps now that you've oblitirated the closest one. However this should be explained in the dialogue.

    -Once more I fail to see the logic behind a quest. The Sea Giant needs an orb.. and we're going to get it when it's just nearby, why can't he get it himself? there's nothing that keeps him from doing it. A reason needs to be given. Same goes for the very first quest with the mushroom. The quest giver somehow knows EXACTLY where it is, but can he get it? apparently not because he is super lazy or something.

    -You're supposed to find the source of a random voice that you heard. How to you know where he is? logically speaking that is, he didn't tell you where he is, nor is it explained that 'he feel the presence' or something like that.

    When loading ep.3 , the game just got "stuck" (again) on the intro cinematic. It "freezes" when the troll says: What weaponary do you use or close to it.

    Fix?

    Well i wont do a reviwe sinc other people did but i did notice a few bugs

    -Plants that can be destroyed if clicked look like a barrel
    -After we go check for gnolls and take the quest book and go back to ED...The quest book item even after the cinematic stays into inventory and cuz of it the player is invunerable if you drop it you are no more invunerable.
    -During the raid on the main gnoll camp...Gnolls do not attack the Brown leather troops just my unites.

    Your terrain is f***ing awesome!!

    Content wise I would expect a little bit more since this map is large in size but only has a few quests that mostly contain in "kill this and that and then return"

    Still I liked it very much and I definetly will check out the other parts

    Cheers :)

    I lost interest in downloading the rest of the maps due to the monotony of the first one, just a lot of hack and slash on gnolls and boring optional quests in my opinion.
     
  17. I can't grab an orb also the Gnolls ignore the attacking group durning the first charge.
