    Hope you won't be sorry, hehe.
    Thank you for your kind words.
    Why don't you give it a shot? I tried not to overload environment with objects so as to avoid lag, but cannot guarantee it'll work for sure.

    There is a person called Koltrund , he is really bad XD but he is even harder than the angry old man . All you have to do is block his damage , also you need to find a good time to slash koltrund.He is very strong.

    Block his attack and try to attack him between his attacks. You'll need to press it rather quick!

    Dude... This map is a ton of fun. Challenging and entertaining. But you didn't put in a revive function once you die its over. I learned to save as i go, but the first time it was really annoying.

    Frustrating Camera system

    Don't like how you locked the camera angle but not the distance....so if you even accidentally move the mousewheel it zooms in like 3x as far and becomes practically unmanageable. You can unlock the camera and sometimes that helps but often it makes it worse since there's either so much you can't see or it'll see-through the terrain into a vast sea of emptiness underneathe.:sad:

    Love the parry ability with sword---excellent idea (although not very useful vs multiple enemies) but invaluable in 1vs1 combat.:infl_thumbs_up:

    Great adventure short-role playing game for those who love to embark custom-mythological tale based on the Nordic legends.

    I have several suggestion that could improve the game-play and visuals:
    First of all you should build a camera zoom-in and out function via arrow keys, abilities or automatic events. Rotating the camera would also improve how the players choose to see the atmosphere.

    Second, you should remove mouse clicking confirmation effect, it is too large and I can already see that it would look much more realistic without the green arrows every-time you click on a certain point to move. It also becomes annoying during certain times with such a camera perspective. The nearby NPC's should help you out in killing those pesky wolfs that attack you, they just stand there like some dummies with you being attacked in-front of them- certainly a good allies... (sarcasm).

    Third but not least is to improve the visuals and terrain, the sky-box looks very bad in Warcraft 3, I suggest you to use a custom one like the sky-box resources I uploaded. Terrain distance view can be maxed out, right now it is still small. The grass looks honestly awful, it doesn't fit with the tile-set. You should use custom light environment, additive layer models and custom light sources such as omni lights. You will find tons of advise from tobyfat50, he is a great expert and good visual art adept at various techniques at making it look pretty as close as modern games.

    Thanks for comments.

    @Void
    This map is quite old and I am not really willing to spend time for major updates such as terrain, it is warcraftish and that was the plan. But thanks for letting me know. Arrows and clicking issue is an easy fix though. :)

    I like the atmosphere of the the map, but tellyou the true, quests are little boring and similar to other games like this, go there kill the chiken bring me the map .... thats little annoying, when you read the description of the map you dont immagine that you will pursuit the chiken ....

    -the hero's name practically means he is dead :D
    -whaaa!? He doesn't trust the hero, is very hungry and lost his chicken and will trust him if the hero gets the chicken and kills it!?
    -punching chickens :D
    -he ate the chicken, raw?
    -how about 100% HP after fighting the old man?
    -OK, so now when you get out of the village a wolf comes directly to you; that didn't happen before getting the quest
    -I suggest putting the punch to W too avoid adapting later to strike with W and block with Q
    -vilkolakis are not really part of Norse mythology are they? Ulfheoinn were basically men with wolf pelts on them; still didin't get much on varulfur...
    -another trick? Should've sold the goods instead of giving them back? I gots meself no reward
    -floating rocks somewhere behind Oghard's house; not quite near it
    -if the wolf near the wooden walls is attacked, an archer will start shooting at it
    -Lion's Spirit; hmm... Norse lion?
    -some villagers do not go into hiding and wait somwhere near the gate while it is attacked
    -you can barely run from a battle because of the camera; you're selecting the enemy units and the hero returns.. that's a lame strategy to just stand there
    -the tents can barely be touched when fighting the three men that come out of them is not done quickly and other three may appear; do not fight them alone
    -can't use Fearceful Charge on a tent but can throw a knife?
    -why are the left front allies going there if there's no tent anymore instead of helping the right side?
    -let us rotate the camera; I can't see through trees...
    -why were there vrykolakas near the rune after exiting the crystal domain?
    -the crystal guardian is no challenge
    -I suggest movement speed set to slow after getting the mountain's gift
    -I guess the ritual related optional quest can't be done anymore if the gift is taken and the chieftain tells you to return to the mountain
    -how are you supposed to defeat 6-8 skeletons without running a bit?
    -and if he freezes you.. that's it; can only hit him with the blue icon spell (from the mountain)
    -I can fend the skeletons off until he starts to ice me once in 10-20 secs; tried keeping the distance too but then you can't just run from the skeletons that spawn without being hit by them; they walk faster than the hero
    -yeah, call me Captain Complaint

    3.25/5
