Cool, another Warcraft IV. Anyways, Shadowland is a little bleh for a planet, and Dark Elves would look too much like Night Elves. Make them Silver Elves, now that would be cool. When does this take place? After TFT? Then, the Draenei would be fighting Illidan as well. (Along with his Blood Elves and Naga)

You need to have more story. Everybody fights some random race from some random planet and the humans and high elves fight the undead. There's not much more than that too it. (It seems) But hey what do I know.

If i name the dark elves silver elves then they will have a grey skin like the NE (Night Elves) but if i name them Dark Elves they will get Dark Skin.

When does this take place? After TFT? Then, the Draenei would be fighting Illidan as well. (Along with his Blood Elves and Naga)
I want to use Illidan but in the last undead mission Arthas killed Illidan:(

I will try to do more story.But ideas are welcome :thup:

No, Illidan is still alive and kicking.

The Lich King Triumphant

Even weakened as he was, Arthas ultimately outmaneuvered Illidan and reached the Frozen Throne first. Using his runeblade, Frostmourne, Arthas shattered the Lich King's icy prison and thereby released Ner'zhul's enchanted helm and breastplate. Arthas placed the unimaginably powerful helm on his head and became the new Lich King. Ner'zhul and Arthas' spirits fused into a single mighty being, just as Ner'zhul had always planned. Illidan and his troops were forced to flee back to Outland in disgrace, while Arthas became one of the most powerful entities the world had ever known.

Currently Arthas, the new and immortal Lich King, resides in Northrend; he is rumored to be rebuilding the citadel of Icecrown. His trusted lieutenant, Kel'Thuzad, commands the Scourge in the Plaguelands. Sylvanas and her rebel Forsaken hold only the Tirisfal Glades, a small portion of the war-torn kingdom.
This is from the history of Warcraft on WoW.com. There is no WoW lore on there yet, only Warcraft lore. Anyways, it's your project, and the wonderful thing about that is that you can change history.

EDIT You know, I'm already Terraining for my project and kingbdogz project, I'll do some terraining on yours if I have time.
 

D.V.D

Make a wish
Arthas never killed Illidan, the maker of the cinematic made a mistake. Illidan was actually really badly hurt and the naga and bloodelfs rescued him.

I have an idea...

The Netherborne -

Long ago, during the War of the Ancients, the Highborne attempted to summon Sargeras into the world. Although they were stopped, some Highborne escaped into the portal before it was fully closed. With the destruction of the portal on Azeroth, it destroyed the portal on the other side. It sent these Highborne swerving through the Twisting Nether, transforming them. They found themselves on a lost planet, and found themselves with unimaginable power. Their skin became dusk, and they called themselves the Dae'norei, or the Netherborne. The transformation altered their mind; they believed the Burning Legion and the rest of the Highborne abandoned them. They seek vengeance on the world. Now, over the eons, they have learned to harness their own unique form of magic, based on the abyssal form of the nether - a magic which, rather than conjure, consumes. With it, they are able to create rips in the Twisting Nether, leading them to countless worlds. Outland is among them...

In Outland -

The Draenei are fighting a losing battle. Illidan and his diverse army - called the Illidari - are eliminating them from the world. Although there is betrayal within the Illidari ranks. Akama and his Broken see the error of his ways, and the Blood Elves hunger for something more.

The Edge of Eternity is upon us.
Woah! 3 Warcraft 4's? This is getting outta hand, I already got Wc3shadys war4 as a competition :D Seriously though it looks good, BTW NE have purple skin not grey. Just one small suggestion, I think you should actually put something up on the first post so people can get hooked, I didn't put anything up on my other project and it kinda failed and stumbled. By the time I put something up no one was interested. Just a tip, I don't want to see a good project go down hill :( Anyway Good Luck! :thup:

You are talking about the new race.It seem a good introduction from them.

Thank you for the tips.I hope that your project will not go down hill too.

Ok, I'm looking at your post... and let me tell you im going to lore slap the hell out of you. lol.

Ok! The Fel Orcs were products of Mannoroths blood. Mannoroth was killed, and all the Fel Orcs were "Freed" (no more fel orcs, only orcs). Now, there ARE Fel Orcs in Outland, but on Illidans side. He imprisoned Magtheridon, and is draining his blood to make Fel Orcs out of the remaining "pure" orcs in Outland (Mag'har). So, Fel Orcs should be Illidari, so the Illidari are killing the Draenei. (The pure Draenei, not the Broken). So, Illidan and Draenei couldn't work together to enslave the Netherborne (it seems your using my idea). Now, the Broken Draenei, Akama and his homeboys, are on Illidans side. Although, they are truly good so it would make sense for them to leave the Illidari.

Now, first of all you called Humans Humains. Second of all, you could just say that they are under attack by the Undead, and losing the war. Also, "finding great holy artifacts" is too random. What artifacts? Be specific. Maybe, they discovered something of Uthers, like an Urn of Light, the antithesis to all things dead. (Sort of like the Ashbringer, but w/e).

Night Elves... good enough.

Orcs... brainfart there sorry.

Undeads is wrong, it's Undead. Now... if they're winning the war (I'm assuming, "destruction of all Humain towns" as you said), why would they need to defend against the Alliance? It should be about the fall of the Alliance.

Blood Elves... well maybe what do the Blood Elves and the Alliance finally work together knowing that the Scourge is too powerful, and counterattack the Frozen Throne?

Dark Elves/Netherborne - Needs something more, but I can't quite put my finger on it...

Okey, first I don't like all the Warcraft 4 projects on here(Although some are turning out good) I just think you should be a little more creative about the title of the game. I know you want people to know it's the same lore as WC3 but I'd skip the "Warcraft 4" part of it since it's just going to be one in the crowd.

Now I'm going to rant down alot on everything you wrote. Make sure you understand it's constructive criticism. Because if I don't like some of your current ideas there's a risk someone else wont like it either. So it can be a good idea at looking through what people think and not get discouraged about it.


"The Draeneis campaign is about helping Illidan to enslave the darkelves"
Why would they want to help Illidan? Why would they care about enslaving the dark elves? They crashed with their spaceship and turned to the light. They're nice guys, they don't want to help the evil guy enslaving people.

The human campaign seems pretty unoriginal. Oh no, the towns are getting destroyed by the undeads. AGAIN. Also, I'd change it either to scourge or a new threat since scourge is too used up.

"ancient books about greats holy artifacts" I guess it's the same thing there. Not much to say though, need some more information before I can rant at that part too. Also, it's spelled "Humans" not "Humains"

"The Night Elves Campaign is about getting into the deep of the Mysteries of the Darkelves" I can see it in front of me:

Chapter one: Malfurion reads a book!
Chapter two: Malfurion still reads a book!
Chapter three: Malfurion found a reference of dark elves in the book!

You could probably make it more interesting than that. I was only doing a worst case based on the description. Still, people want war and stuff. The mysteries are good but you can't(imo) base a whole campaign on it.

"The Undeads Campaign is about stoping the Humains and Blood Elves from destroying the Frozen Throne."
That is pretty vague. When you say "Undead". What're you talking about? Scourge or forsaken? If it's forsaken, you need to read your lore. Otherwise it might work.

"The Blood Elves Campaign is about assaulting The frozen Throne with the help of the humains, The draeneis and The Nagas" Wait, most of the nagas followed Illidan through the dark portal. Also didn't the dranei's help Illidan? Suddenly they're in Northrend.

Now everyone is just jumping out of there. Illidan went out and ran away from his naga army and tries to enslave the dark elves(with the help of his dranei enemies)

His naga army then tries destroy the frozen throne even though I think an alliance like that would be hard.

Nothing to say about Dark elves, just keep them from being Evil Night elves.

Not trying to be too negative, make sure you work on it and do a good job. Read some on www.wowwiki.com To make sure the lore is good enough.

Im going to find a new idea.

Im going to add war.Especially the last mission.

Im speaking about the Scourge
I don't know who are these "Forsakens"
"The Blood Elves Campaign is about assaulting The frozen Throne with the help of the humains, The draeneis and The Nagas" Wait, most of the nagas followed Illidan through the dark portal. Also didn't the dranei's help Illidan? Suddenly they're in Northrend.
Illidan is the leader of the blood elves, the nagas and the draeneis.

They aren't Night Elves but they are Evils

Im going to change a lot.It's just planing.

Ok, Broken are on the Draenei side. They are Draenei exposed to fel energies. The Draenei are light loving people.

You don't know who the Forsaken are?

Didn't you player the Frozen Throne? Sylvanas and her undead are the Forsaken.

A lot of that is well said Siretu... but



Elaborate?
Was thinking mainly of kingbdogz project since that's the only thread I'm watching.

The draeneis aren't Illidan Enemies.He helped them and they helped him in the TFT campaign.

There are different kinds of draenei. Broken, lost ones and pure. I think you're talking about lost ones.

He is actually talking about the Broken. They have minds, unlike the Lost Ones who are insane.

    I hope you're staying warm! Apparently the supply is coming up so hopefully we can get back to normal power soon, mine has been on for six hours now.

    My power has been off most of the last 2 days. We had a generator installed 3 years ago though, so we're staying warm. Water is another issue...
