Partial Description of Sereg D`or and major elements.

Sereg D`or was made as a project to create a Spawn Based map that was more fast paced and centralized then the LOTR maps were. I drew inspiration for Sereg D`or from various fantasy sources and games in hopes of creating the best possible unique experience.
Features:
1) No castle building to increase and upgrade your spawns; unless you are nature, pigmen, or pirates. Your spawns will increase in power overtime.Comment: This was done in order to put less micro into the overall map.

2) Wether you can ally or not depends on which race you are. Some races are super powers and are unable to ally. While others are in a set alliance that can be modified by special player triggered events.

3) A historical timeline runs through the entirety of Sereg D`or in order to repersent various events in history. Some events can be player influenced.

4) 12 unique races all with their own unique strengths and abilities. Each and every race has the ability to win the game.

5) Certain locations are capturable within the game, the first person to capture one of these locations ussually gains a extra hero. These locations grant a extra spawn to the player thus increasing how many units they gain at a time.

6) Certain units within the game are affected by the time of day, and change forms or other things happen to them.

7) Bonus events occur if you pull off something that is normally impossible for your nation, such as Empire holding onto every spawn for 40 minutes.

8) New units like the Siegemaster are a cross between a hero and a demi, creating a hero that doesn't display on the sidebar but levels, and gains stats like a hero. You are able to hire units off a siegemaster, such as Goblins, goblin suicide squad and Catapults. More units like this soon to come.

9) The game is frequently updated once every 2 days and every 7 days a massive update. Go to clan LOTN on useast if you want to test beta versions of this.

10) Towns and bandit forts accross the map allow you to gain additional resources to build towers and buy neutral units like the siegemaster.

11) Custom scripts for all location spawns so the lag is greatly reduced.

12) Entirely Redesigned Ally system from the norm of its genre, innovative dialog boxes over boring things like -ally red.

13) Redone gate system to utilize capturable gatehouses instead of -open. Making gates able to be linked into your micro strategies.

14) Capable AI which is able to attack and defends its allies.

15) Epic Event Generator. The Epic Event Generator is slated for release in 1.04 , it comprises of 40 Epic Events, only one will occur each game and it will happen midway into the game. Examples of the Epic Event Generator: No Quarter. All alliances are terminated and because of increasing xenoracism allying is diabled. "The Vampire Court" The Empire has been taken over by a number of nobles who have been turned vampiric and the former ruler of the empire and its leaders are disposed of by a rapid turn of events that result in the vampire court taking power and becoming the sole rulers of the Empire. Their undead will converts all of the empires citizens and soldiers into the undead they once fought against, no longer are they weak humans but stronger undead legions!

Setting: The Continent of Sereg D`or is gearing up for what seems to be a giant clash of the ruling powers of the time. The Emperor Sigmar has been declared a god by his people infuriating those around him. Tensions are rising and it seems all signs are pointing to what will be a "Conflict for Sereg D`or" the lives of thousands will be lost and in the end only the strong will survive.

The Story of Conflict for Sereg D`or is told by various events throughout the game, these events are sometimes linear. But in most cases they are affected by players, random, or player choice events. I will now list all of these events and their effects.

Year 01-The Founding of the Sigmarite Empire is met with great fanfare, and celebration.

This Ends the Normal Event Section

This Will now be the Bonus Event Section.

Traitor Dwarves-The Dwarves have decided they have no need for the likes of humans, pigs, and ogre.Having decided to take over the world and remake it in their own image. The Dwarven Dictator known as Hilin Ironfist has risen to power as well to lead his country to greatness.*This Event Creates a vast amount of strong dwarf units for dwarves*brown* and gives them a new hero Hilin Ironfist.

The Defense of Nature-The druids have stood strong, their borders lay untouched and their forests serene, the chirping of birds and howl of wolves unto the full moon, surrounds the forests of nature. The great peace invoked by the spirits and dwellers of the wood has given risen to a stronger bond with the spirits for the druids, increasing the amount of damage they can sustain.*This gives a upgrade in health to all of Nature(Dark Green)'s units.It is obtained by losing no starting spawns as Nature.*

So Ends the Bonus Event Section.

I Will now proceed to make the race section. This section will list every race in the game, their attributes and their various abilities.

The Pandaren Nation(Red)-The Pandaren nation is one of the easier teams to play in sereg, because of how versatile their army is, they have a mixture of range,casters,and a lot of heavy melee units. Their main disadvantage would be how far apart most of their bases are. But, they do have one of the only sea bases in the game.
Goverment form: Variable.(Starts as Anarchy)


The Barbarians(Blue)-The Barbarians are a medium in difficulty race, because of the way their army plays, in order to be good barbarian you must strike red down or ally him, or forever leave your flank open to attack.Your units are almost entirely melee, although you do have a good number of caster units.

The Empire(Teal)- The Empire are the hardest Race to play in the game, because they are in the direct center of the map, granting them a enormous disadvantage. THe only way to win as the empire is to forge a alliance with someone, or take out nature or satyr right away. Even then its extremely difficult to win as Empire. If you want a challange then Empire is for you. The Empire has the highest number of heroes, and the highest number of events. It also has the best melee unit in the game, known as The Empire titan.

Dark Elves(Purple) -The Dark Elves are a easy race to play because of the numerous amount of special abilities they have, and their easily defensible posistion. They have Two very powerful heroes from the start and their hydras and werewolves are two of the best special units in the game.

The High Elves(Yellow)-The High Elves are almost entirely caster and ranged based, they only have 1 melee unit and this makes them a medium difficulty race to play. The high elves have the best mages in the game and their mage hero has one of the best spells in the game obviously. Proper use of spells can mean the difference between utter defeat and victory.
.

The Satyrs(Orange)- The Satyrs are a super power, meaning they don't get allies but spawn a abundance of units and have several powerful units. IN the case of the satryr they have big meaty units like the corrupted war ent and the doomguard. The satyr are a medium difficulty race because they happen to be on their own.

The Otters(Green)-The otters are easy race because of their extremely easy to defend base, and its out of the way posistion. The otters have several very strong units, such as otter asasssin's which are permanently cloaked, or the Great Sea Turtle. The otters also have the aktarian minor base which spawns some of the best units in the game.

Pigmen(Pink)-The Pigmen are a medium difficulty race because they are stuck between two enemies, and thus have to defend more then the other city states. They have Ictusk mammoths are there best units, which have cleaving dmg giving them a great advantage over most units in their tier.

Ogres(Gray)-The ogres are the meatshield of the city states, they also have bandit hirelings from their ogre fort. The Ogres have a good mix of units, with 1 caster, 1 ranged, and 3 melee units. They also have the best hero killer in the game, in the form of the Ogre Lord.The ogres are easy race to play because they are between Pink and Light Blue.

Pirates(Lightblue)- The pirates are the second race in the game to have amphibious units and are heavily dependant on their Pirate units, which form the majority of their army, and are the best units they have. The Pirates are a easy race to play because of their spot between Gray and Brown.

Dwarves(Brown)-The Dwarves are the strongest of the city states, having a major focus on ranged firepower, and high rate of fire. The Dwarves are a medium difficulty race because they have to fight off both Nature and Empire. The Option of turning traitor upgrades dwarves from a medium difficulty race to a hard race. Because at that point they must try and kill off every player in the game. Even if they to do make it past nature, empire, and all the other city states. There still 7 more enemies they must defeat on their path to global domination.

Nature(Dark green)-The Denizens of nature, are a mix of druids, bears, wolves, and later on ninjas. The nature's sheer diversity in units, from fast to slow, to big and slow to lithe and fast is their true advantage. The Diversity in their troops grants them the ability to strike down most any force that comes at them. They are a medium difficulty race because they are on their own and this could be rougher on new players, same as Satyr would be.

This Ends the Description of the Races of Sereg D`or, their purpose, and their level of difficulty.

Next up is the Last Major Feature Epic Events. Only One Epic Event occurs per game, and they are the most game changing, and influencing events in the game, ussually involving total race changes. Disabling or creating of new gameplay features. And the Epic Event which occurs is chosen entirely by random, allowing each game to be diffrent. Not all Epic Events are Complete, in the end there will be 40. They happen between year 50 and 56.

Epic Event Number 01-No Quarter:No Quarter is Invoked; all nations unally and allying is disabled! No Quarter is the result of brash political movements throughout the world inciting racial hatred among all races and turning them against each other.*This Event Makes all alliances including city states null and void, turning the game FFA. Allying is entirely disabled for the rest of the game.

Epic Event Number 02-The Vampire Court:A small sect of nobles within the Empire have become Vampires and have a taken disliking to the current Regime, deciding that they instead will rule the empire, they quickly assassinate all remaining human leaders and convert the empire in their image.*Converts every unit and spawn for Empire(teal) into undead, and all of his minor heroes into vampire lords.Kills all major heroes, and gives teal, Vlad the Impaler, a super vampire hero.

Epic Event Number 03- The Great Calm: A great calm comes over the land of Sereg D`or as all remains as it was, although it felt as if something gigantic in porportion was about to happen.*Nothing occurs, its pretty much saying No Epic event this game*

So Ends my description of Epic Events*that are currently in* and if you guys want further information, about heroes etc just post and ask me okay.
I attached the image file for the new minimap preview if you want to see it.

Raging indeed we do have a lot of sub-forums but we also felt we needed them, *Me and Frank that is, Frank makes all the icons models and load screens for sereg. Sub-race for a Epic event lets you have NAGA but they aren't in every game, the map doesn't have much water anyway.

Conflict for Sereg D`or

My post in this thread is somewhat belated: my apology.

Yeah Conflict for Sereg D`or is an amazing map all right. The concepts and game play are both original and entertaining. I have not had a chance to complete an entire scenario, but my examination of the map's components and content's proved it to be innovative, having great potential to be listed among Warcraft III's most desirable maps. Your team members are likewise loaded with talent: are BD and GF even aware of this forum's existence?

I'm looking forward to the further development of the map itself and your forum(s) too. Let me know if there is anything that I can do to help. (I notice that you custom icon is not displayed on the forum index: I'll fix that right now.

Good luck and have fun!
