    Makers Note


    Hey there fellow hivers I will be bringing you my new project The Ways of a Fighter (name is not permanent yet give idea of a different name) I thought of this idea sometime ago and decided to make it. I am having fun making this map as I and 5 other people person working on this project. (If you
    want to join the team or help don’t hesitate to tell me.)



    Story


    Prologue


    A fine day it is, the blue sea: its glittering saltwater and clear waters, filled with life. Captain Morgan, his old trusty ship and his crewmates, all buckled up and ready for a good ol’ adventure. Met by these beautiful creatures and the view of the sea, they were all full of delight. Passing through paradise-like islands, the wind suddenly became violent. Storms surged, and the clouds became dark. Morgan and his men did not mind, they rushed through everything until they came along a whirlpool. Being the veteran that he is, Morgan smoothly controlled the old ship, and escaped this calamity. They rejoiced, laughed and smiled. The dark clouds remained, and nothing could be seen except the thick fog that covered their vision. Never faltering, they went through with their voyages, being a veteran had its advantage. Morgan knew what he was doing and laughed everything out. The city can almost be seen once again, the crew knew they had done a job well done. One by one, the men fell down, the captain and his crew all became nothing but skulls and bones. A young sailor, terrified at this sight, quickly took the captain’s seat. Desperate for salvation, he drove the old ship with no sense of direction. And, the ship he rode on crashed through an island.

    The next day, he woke, clothes tattered, hats torn, and bodies everywhere. The young sailor had remembered the nightmare that had occurred. Knowing that his crewmates had died, he walks around, stranded in an island trying to save his own and see the light of day once more.The sailor tries to search for some signs of life in this distraught island.(Will be made into a cinematic intoducing the game if you are good at making cinematics and are intrested in doing this please ask it will be apreciated)

    Chapter 1


    As the night passed, dawn soon came. Our young sailor awoke from his unconscious state. Feeling dizzy it was hard for our sailor to stand, everything was just a blur. He could hardly see his own hand, in his mind he was saying where am I and what am I doing here. Here the cold winds cut through to the very bones making it more like hell than a paradise. There was pieces of wood that had obviously broken off from the ship now knowing the ship was destroyed there was a strange pain in his heart. It was hard for him to breathe. The clothes he was wearing was as wet as the sea itself. He knew he was dying slowly fading into this corrupted land. The only thing keeping him alive was the hope to find his crewmates and lead them to a brighter future. if they were still alive. He stood up by the shore of this corrupted island with that one hope in his heart. The shores and mountains seem to stretch for miles. Knowing he could be stuck here forever doubt started to grow in his heart. “No”, he said there is no place in my heart for doubt I must scurry on for the life of me and my crewmates. In his mind he was saying “why not just end this torture now.”But he’s heart was telling him to go on that he would live. He slowly started to walk forward.
    When All of a sudden a patch of grass, approximately a few meters away from him started to shake he slowly approached it. He’s heart was beating at a fast rate as he approached the patch of grass. When a wild baboon jumped out of the patch of grass, luckily the sailor had been prepared for this. He grabbed the baboon on the neck and ripped apart its jaw killing it instantly. He was shaking after that attack, knowing this was just a taste of what this island had in store for him. He is in the worst position any human could ever be in. It was simple kill or be killed in this island you have no choice. He is looking for his crew will it be his end or a new beginning? (Still under construction so expect to see more. )

    First of all, is it way or ways? Check your post to see what I mean. Second, the sailor could be named Popeye. Third, is this an SRPG or a Campaign? Fourth, why settle with two chapters? Is it going to suffice? Fifth, the screenshots look good but they only show one place. Around 2-3 screenshots of the same place with different angles and stuff would be enough. And lastly, I am interested. Subscribed.

    1.It is the ways.
    2.Yes I thought about that but I said it sounded stupid.
    3.It will most likely come in two different maps.
    4.I could make more but I need ideas.
    5.Oops, I will add more screenshots of different places.
    6.Thanks for being interested.

    Is this a campaign?

    Because well, I know it's a strategy/risk map, but I'm confused about what you said about Chapter 1 and Chapter 2.

    Yes, I wanted to ask that too. But I wasn't given a clear answer. So what is it? Is it a campaign? I'll need this to change/edit/make the story.

    I don't know yet I think it will come in separate maps or maybe a campaign which one do you think is better.

    What do you think about the terrain?
    Yes I would like you to edit it thanks allot for asking.

    It could be a campaign or a single player rpg map based on the classes you mentioned.

    I'm low on ideas and right now I don't have much time for terrain because I'm busy on our other project, but I think it's a go for the triggers.
