Good work keep it up!
Solutions to the riddle from RotBE here! Only now do I realise it may have been too hard...
Main riddle: While the _____ watches on, these _____ without substance _____ in and out.
You get 3 riddles: I grow and I shrink, I push and I pull.
To wild things I am an idol, to the tamed ones I am a warning. To the poet I am a woman's much missed face, and to the cynic I am a lone, ever-watching eye. In reality I am a reflection, so what am I?
Though I embrace darkness, even I can be shrouded by it.
The solution of all three is moon.
The answer is the other way.
It's the alphabet reversed. When you reverse the letters, you get:
Then, the word is hidden in a diagonal so you get worlds. (this is the way too hard part, for some reason I didn't realise it wouldn't be easy to figure out. I should have given a better hint.)
2 - 4 - __
1 - 5 - 1 - 25 - 1 - 8 - __
256 - 64 - 16 - __
4 - 7, 9 - 12, 2 - __
There is a pattern in each of these. So you get 6 in the first line (just add 2), 1 in the second (it's 1 then another number, 1 then a number which repeats), 4 in the third (divide each number by 4 and you get 4 at the end) and 5 in the fourth (add 3 to each number).
Then, you change the numbers you get with letters in order they are in alphabet. 6 is F, 1 is A, 4 is D and 5 is E, so you get fade.
So, the final riddle is: While the moon watches on, these worlds without substance fade in and out.
And the final solution is dreams. Which is a nod to the fact that Emerald Dream will be making an appearance in Shadow of Blood.
Well I'll be damn. Out of these the only one I'm sure I would have solved is the third one. Maybe the first too but that would've taken me way too long. The second one though is impossible to solve. I'll be sure to give this to my friends. Fantastic idea though, really neat . Though next time, give more hints when it's as complicated as the 2nd. Personally, I feel there is no real way to give a good ambiguous hint to the 2nd since everybody understands things in a different manner thus what makes sense to you might confuse the crap out of me and vice versa . In any case, this is certainly inspirational for me. Cheers.
Warcraft IV? There won't be a Warcraft IV until WoW is done.
How much time you need for one campaign, from very beginning to the end !?
CotF and RotBE were a lot of fun because I loved working with those races and characters. Unfortunately, I don't really feel the same way about SoB or any other races and characters and I'm starting to lose interested in Warcraft 3. I achieved what I wanted with my two campaigns and SoB just doesn't feel the same.
Shadow of Blood update!
Hi all! So I finally have a real update concerning Shadow of Blood. I have just roughly finished today how the story of SoB should flow. At the moment, it seems it will be 15 playable maps and couple of more interludes. Of course, it's possible that this number changes in the future. So, it's gonna be a biiiiiig campaign, it seems.
However, considering how big the story of Cataclysm is and how many characters are involved, that means I won't be able to focus on a specific character or a relationship between characters like I did in RotBE and CotF. I'll try if I can, but I don't think there's gonna be a lot of that. The story of SoB will be more focused on the story itself, considering how big it is, not on the characters.
Also, SoB will most likely not have a custom character. There just doesn't seem to be any place for one. There's already a lot of characters involved and adding another one would just complicate things.
Anyway, yeah, that's about it concerning the story of SoB. Maybe more updates soon? We'll see.
