Map Info:

In the kingdom of Azora there lived Ethan Longdarion, a boy whose dream was to join the army and win wars. Shortly after signing up, his dreams are ratified by the true horrors of war. All is not dark however, as Ethan finds a few companions with whom he can share this journey. Their relationship plays a big part in this tale. This map tells a story of a simple soldier and his fellow brothers in arms in a realistic, medieval, fantasy setting.

Ethan Longdarion is now a part of a five-man fellowship, at the service of Prince Agamand. While conflict emerges between its members, the true purpose of this team is yet to be revealed...

Ethan along with his team finally arrives at Zakarash Temple. They must infiltrate it quietly and complete their mission: to kill General Gavinrad, therefore dealing a devastating blow to the Swits...

A prequel to my previous map Throne of Azora. Do not worry, as it is not at all necessary to play it in order to enjoy and understand Throne of Azora: The Beginning. Nevertheless I still recommend doing such in order to get the full experience :)

Gameplay:

Or the lack of gameplay. I have decided to make it a lengthy cinematic, as it is the best way for me to tell this story. This is now the second episode of the series with three more yet to come.

  5. It should look like this. It's important not to change the file's name or it will not work.

If it doesn't work, restart Warcraft III and try again. If that doesn't help, make sure you followed the instructions carefully.

    You might want to remove the Template/Terrain tags from your Azora episodes.

    Well, leaving an open wound of the fortress unguarded even with the small commotion going is plain stupid.
    He didn't really touch that other Swit guard.
    Not really into that super saiyan motion.

    Approved.

    @deepstrasz Removed the tag
    I wanted to show how powerful these two are, while making it interesting to watch - so I went down the anime trope :p

    I cant understand how it is possible for mogyous to die by a simple arrow.He managed to knock gavinrad of his feet and you have him die like that ???
    Also when kobo aproached the building he managed to kill the first guard,but he when he killed the second one it seemed like he striked the air.
    About this i have an idea:how about have kobo killing the first guard and when the second one tryies to escape he throws his hammer and kill him,but dont make it like < he throws his hammer and it appears in his hand like the actual hammer bolt ability>.If you can have him to go to the dead guard, pick his hammer and then head for the building.
    Please tll me your opinion about my idea.

    @lesnarpower12 The arrow came from behind so he couldn't see it and therefore dodge it.

    The idea is a nice one, but I can't edit anything in the video as that would mean that I would have to upload the entire thing again.
