[The Story So Far]
(Background Story)

Arthas has succumbed to the great power of the Lich King, now bound to him in spirit and soul. A great power has emerged and wishes to destroy all that is living. The Lich King, knowing Arthas to be a mere human has destroyed all remnants of his past human self by destroying his frail human heart. Now, his anger summoned anew, the Lich King seeks to have revenge for his imprisonment within the Frozen Throne, and seeks to defeat Kil'Jaeden. Calling upon Darion Morgraine for this task, the corrupted Ashbringer and it's wielder shall bring Kil'Jaeden from his throne down to Northrend, to die.​

[The Story To Come]



Act 1 - Lords of Vengeance

*Under Production*
the Scepter of the Dark Titan
- Prelude - Prelude to Darkness
Prelude to Darkness is a special mission I added (inspired by an idea kingbdogz had) to release before the rest of the campaign and to give more backstory to Darion Mograine. It is about him and the Scarlet Crusade front on Northrend. Him, High General Abbendis, and Grand Admiral Westwind are assaulting Icecrown from a hidden pathway in the back of the glacier. This is how Darion Mograine claimed the corrupted Ashbringer, and began his affliction, his becoming of a Death Knight, his Prelude to Darkness...
- Prologue - Vengeance Beckons
The cinematic opens to icy, calm seas. Scholar - "Over the aeons, the bloodshed has been constant." (The screen fades to blighted forests) Scholar - "Mankind has had many wars amongst it's time." (You see human soldiers in battalions) "The wars with the Burning Legion... wars with the orcs and humans. But perhaps the most troubling to the world, was the conquest of the Undead Scourge." (You see an army of skeletons, abominations, frost wyrms, necromancers, and so on) "They brought death to humanity." (The undead army attacks the human army, they fight for a bit, with the camera panning around) "But no - that is not what made this war great... it was the undead power to raise the very corpses of their fallen enemies as one of their own." (The humans rise as ghouls) "And throughout this chaos, the only thing that remains a constant is the reason for all of it - vengeance." (The music becomes harder and more 'evil', and quickly the camera fades to northrend, with the camera sifting throughout a massive undead legion) "And now..." (The camera finally finds the Lich King) "Vengeance Beckons" The cinematic quickly ends.
- Chapter 1 - Assault At Angrathar
The Lich King wishes Darion Mograine to obtain an artifact from Kul Tiras to summon Kil'Jaeden, but for now Angrathar is under attack by the Scarlet Crusade. The Lich King has sent Darion to travel through the Azjol-Nerub and attack the Scarlet Crusade leaders from the rear.
- Interlude - the Scarlet Consultation
When news of High General Abbendis's death reaches Lordaeron, the remaining leaders of the Scarlet Crusade express different views on the matter...
- Chapter 2 - the Challenge
Before the Lich King may summon Kil'Jaeden, he must challenge him first. So, he must infiltrate the Drakkari Troll homeland to find a Demon Gate once used by Dreadlords to communicate with their masters.
- Chapter 3 - the Dragonblight
The Red Dragonflight, weary of the Lich King's plans, has surrounded their army in the Dragonblight. So, the Lich King has decided to raise the great dragon Sindragosa as a Frost Wyrm, and has Darion Mograine defend the ritual.
- Chapter 4 - Battle Royale at Tol Barad
On their way to Kul Tiras, Darion and his forces' boats are destroyed by mages protecting the island prison Tol Barad, leaving only Darion and a handful of Death Knights alive on the shore of Tol Barad.
- Chapter 5 - Shielding the Rising Ashes
In their new keep, Kel'Thuzad, Darion and Licier attempt to raise the corpses of the dead prisoners, but as they are performing the ritual, the Navy of Kul Tiras attacks Tol Barad.
- Chapter 6 - the Pillage of Kul Tiras
With their new army, Darion and Kel'Thuzad attempt to raid Kul Tiras and steal the Jeweled Scepter of Sargeras.
- Epilogue - the Ebon Fate
Now that Darion Mograine's task is completed, he returns to Acherus, the Ebon Hold, to be attacked by Taelan Fordring and the Argent Dawn.

the Undead Scourge

New Units
Skeletal Archers
Skeletal Archers are one of the "Choice" units in the Undead Scourge, with the other choice being the Crypt Fiend. They are swift archers with low health and decent damage. They can learn the Volley ability, which targets an area, picks every nearby Skeletal Archer, and orders those archers to attack the area every second. (Thanks for Volley Sid)
Witch Elves
Witch Elves are nimble assassins of the Undead Scourge. They are undead elves, and can learn the Dexterity and Leap abilities. Dexterity is evasion, whilst Leap is a targeted jumping ability. They are built from the Dark Seminary, a "choice" building.
Black Knights
Black Knights are tough, medium damage T2 melee units. They are undead elves, built from the Dark Seminary, a "choice" building. They have cleaving attacks. Also, they can learn Shadow Scream, which taunts nearby enemies. They work well with their Witch Elf counterparts at assaults, because as they take all the damage with taunt, Witch Elves can Leap in, flank, and deal damage without having to worry about taking damage.
Scalefiend Terrors
Scalefiend Terrors have very low health, and very high attack, and also very fast movement speed. They are undead snap dragons, and are built from the Scalefiend Shrine, a "choice" building. They can walk on water, and learn the Mana Poison, which drains an enemies' health whenever a Terror attacks them. They can also learn Misdirect, which forces all nearby enemies to attack a target ally. These are very useful, because they can be very strategic. They can force all units on a very tough target, or, if they're in a pack, kill a lone hero. They can do this by Misdirecting each other, so the hero is constantly moving and not attacking.
Scalefiend Crusher
Undead Naga; can walk on water and is built from the Scalefiend Shrine, a "choice" building. They have siege attack. Also, they can learn the Blight Mist ability, which creates a mist of blight in a target area. All allied units in this area get bonus health regeneration and enemy units in the area get a reduced chance to hit on attack.
Blightwing
Blightwings are T2 flying undead Nerubians. They are fast, have medium health, and very good damage, but can only attack air units. However, they can learn Cocoon, which pulls a ground target up into the air, immobilizing the Blightwing and the target. This is good, because if Blightwings are in packs, they can easily rip apart individual ground units. Also, they can learn Desecration, which creates blight in a target area. (Thanks for Desecration Bloodcount)
Plague Eruptor
The Plague Eruptor is a bloated Scourge monstrosity. They are very advanced melee, with high damage and health, but are very slow (200). They have the Infect ability, which is a periodic damage effect. They can learn Pestilence, and if one nearby target has been Infected and the Plague Eruptor uses Pestilence, all nearby targets become Infected.
More Coming Soon!

[New Game-Play Modes]
A number of missions in Warcraft IV: the New Age will feature new Game-Play Modes (Game-Play Modes as in TDs, AoS', etc).

Here are some examples -

Buildings, Towers Defenders
BTD
In BTD, you have a fortress and your enemy has a fortress, You have a fortress wall where you can upgrade towers (which may be just stationary ranged units and spell-casters). On this wall is a gate to your fortress you have to defend. Your hero is on the battlefield, to defend from incoming enemy units. So there is no maze. With the money you get from killing enemy units, you can train units. Buildings cost, but units are free (with fairly quick build times). There are however upgrades that you need to get for certain units that do cost. When you train a unit, it automatically gets teleported to a spawn area connected to your wall that leads into the battlefield area. You have to use synergy between your towers, units and heroes to fight the enemies off. Then, you push your army (BTDefenders) to the enemy gate to destroy it and win. However, your towers aren't that long ranged, and you have to deal with enemy towers.

Aeon of Strife: Defense
AoSD
In "AoS Defense", it basically an AoS, with differences. First of all, your in a base surrounded by a path with 4 entrances, which you must defend. There is a path to the path/circle surrounding your base, which also leads to the enemy base (there is one entrance to the enemy base). While your team has 4 heroes, the enemies have 8. However, your heroes are more powerful (not by too much though) and you have defending units and towers that you can upgrade. In the beginning, you get to pick between the four heroes on your side, and the other 3 will become AI controlled.

Siege
Siege
Siege has a rather simple layout. You control hero(es) and units, and are supposed to raid a fortress. At your starting point, there is a spawn point that heals you fully etc. This has a number of runes around it, which is equal to the numbers of lives you have. You can find new lives in hidden parts of the fortress/dungeon you're going to raid. Now the fortress has different "levels", or parts with check points at the end of them. These levels each hold different items you can only gain there, and lives, and unique puzzles and encounters. Once you enter a level, the only way to leave is to die or reach the check point. Check point areas are separate rooms in between levels, and you can enter the next level through them but once you have reached a check point you can't access previous levels. At the spawn point, there is a portal the teleports you to your latest check point. Check points fully heal you; also, once you reach your first check point, the gate in the front of the fortress to the first level becomes locked.

Update!
Well, Incoming Update.

I've decided to rework the Dark Soul story a bit, originally the Lich King was going to raise Galakrond as a Frost Wyrm and transfer the newly risen soul into the weakened Book of Medivh, but I've decided to change it around a bit. So, I'm going to trash the whole weakened Book of Medivh. What I'm going to do is involve Dalaran (dalaran thats not flying in northrend). My plan is to make it so you have to go into Dalaran and steal an artifact, the Soul Cage. But, Dalaran has a force field around it so nothing can come in and out without the Archmage's consent. SO the Lich Kings plan is to kill Arugal (yes, from Shadowfang Keep) and raise him as undead. Why he's going to do this is because Arugal holds dominion over the Worgen, men who are human at day and werewolf at night. The Lich King will have the Worgen seek entry into Dalaran at day, and wait til night to attack the Force Sentries that are holding the Force Field up.

Feedback plz

EDIT: I'm still planning to implement Galakrond in some way or another into this.

I see you made a storyline that actually connects with WoW lore, even to some extent. Very good work on your part, and good luck making this project.

Ha, "Nexus" reminds me of the Nexus from Gears of War 2 where the Locust live. :)

Sounds good, nice thread, relating story to Warcraft. Only 5%, eh? :p

Well, good luck with this! :thup:

Thanks for all the comments, guys :)

thewrongvine: heh i gotta get that game... anyways the Nexus has been removed from my current version of the story, I keep changing it around, and I'll update it once I got all my ideas right. Also, it's only 5% complete because I only have a basic story outline of 1/2 the game, and the real work is the map.

Ghost-X: What are your skills ? I'm not great at triggering, and I need graphics people for modelling, icons, etc. And thx :)

Also, I had this idea that well you know how the loading screens for blizzard campaigns are maps? Well I'm going to do the same thing, except take the maps from WoW, then with some paint program I'll add dots and arrows and such.

Sorry for Double Posting

Update!

Chapter 1 has been revised a bit, Chapter 2 has been added, and the Information is changed. And now.. a basic outline for the revised Undead race.

Whats New: Buildings

Necropolis/Halls of the Dead/Black Citadel - New research from the Black Citadel: Soulkeeper. Allows the Black Citadel to use the ability Soul Drain. which is a channeled ability, and if it kills the targetted unit it heals all units around the Black Citadel.

NEW T1 BUILDING Shadow Hold - Trains Worgen and Lupine Horrors. Contains upgrades Primal Rage (Gives Worgen the Primal Charge ability, which is just a charge + single target stun), Ferocity (Whenever the Worgen takes damage, there is a chance that it's attack speed will increase), and Spectral Passage (Allows Lupine Horrors the Spectral Passage ability, which is essentially windwalk).

Slaughter House - Obsidian Statue/Destroyer removed. Plague Eruptor and Blightwings (Flying Undead Nerubians) added. New researches: Pestilence (If a unit is under the effect of the Plague Eruptors Plague abliity, and the Plague Eruptor uses Pestilence, all units around the Plague Eruptor will be under the effect of the Plague ability), and Cocoon (Allows the Blightwings to use the Cocoon ability, which is a channeled ability that traps a flying or ground unit in a cocoon). Also Plague Eruptors/Blightwings are affected by the Disease Cloud upgrade and Blightwings are affected by the Web upgrade from the Crypt.

Tomb of Relics - New item, Scroll of Affliction. Taints ground in an area of effect, slowing the movement speed and DoTing any enemy that goes through the area for one minute

Temple of the Damned - New unit, Dread Witcher (Darkfallen caster, wikipedia them). Has upgrade Dread Witcher Adept Training (100 bonus mana, +30% mana regen, 40 hit points, and the ability to cast Unholy Gift, which takes away the Dread Witchers health and gives it to an ally.) and Dread Witcher Master Training (100 bonus mana, +30% mana regen, 40 hit points, and the ability to cast Bloodweave, a DoT that gives life to the Dread Witcher, but if the unit with Bloodweave on him dies it deals damage to the Dread Witcher).

Ok awesome Ghost-x.

I can do a good amount of the gui, but some i will need you can do, i can do all the tooltips, terrain (im a bomb terrainer :D), that stuff. but once i figure out what it is exactly that i need, ill need your help on some modelling/skinning. also i will need someone to animate, since as im thinking the cinematics through my head and some crappy animations will ruin the epicness im going for.

UPDATE!!!!

Ok the name "the Dark Soul" for the first campaign has been renamed to "the Lifebane", and chapters 1 and 2 have been revised, for example Galakrond is replaced by Sindragosa. Galakrond is bigger than all of the dragon aspects combined, he would just be too powerful. Sindragosa was the ex consort of Malygos, and massive. She is powerful enough to destroy settlements, but still the Dragonqueen wouldn't have too much of a problem killing her.

Also, Chapter 3 has been added!

And change has been made around Ashes of the Dead, Tirion will not be the main character!!! You'll have to wait til the epilogue of the Lifebane to find out who.

I haven't done the actual mapping yet, I'm just planning out the story (which is constantly changing) and the cinematics and the such, I actually just completely finished all the planning I need for the first chapter, so tonight im going to terrain it. (By the way, it will not be actually complete until I get models, which I havent even looked into yet) I also just finished Darion Mograine's abilities. Seeing as how he is a Death Knight, some spells are similar to the old ones.

Woah, nice thread. Looks like there's a long, really long way to the end. :)

Hehe yeah for the story I will need some ideas. I want to make the characters really dynamic, like they grow. I have the first act pretty much all thought out, and the second act I have a pretty good idea of the storyline, but no chapters yet, and i just have some ideas for the third act.

First off, in your first post where title is it says Warcraft IV a few times and Warcraft III a few times... I'm guessing it's III because that is what the title of thread is, but change it for clarification please.

Looks good so far, but you need more living units...
Undead are easy because they are anything that was dead, but add the Humans, NElfs, and Orcs, and maybe Naga unless you want them all to team the cool new undead guys.

It was originally Warcraft III: Lords of Vengeance, but since I made it majorly bigger, with Lords of Vengeance being the first act, I changed it to be Warcraft IV: the New Age.

Seeing as how undead are in the first campaign, they were the first i planned out. next will be an altered human race: the Argent Dawn. For now, there wont be a melee, campaign is first priority. It's not like I'm making a new campaign for each race, I'm making a new campaign for the story I created.

    I tried to open a food truck in Sandpoint a few years ago but the city said no, then like two years later they passed new laws to encourage it and gave them all fucking tax breaks and shit. And at that point I didn't have enough money to go buy one so I was way too late to the game once other cities realized they could just bring their existing truck there, or sell their brick and mortar.
  • Varine Varine:
    I do like food trucks though, they're way more fun than restaurants and usually I also get some of that tip money there.
  • Varine Varine:
    Restaurants are really hard if you don't have a back up source of income to fund them sometimes, in my experience most owners either got really really lucky, had existing money that allowed them to buy an already successful one, or they have family money to fall back on for loans. It's few and far between to see very inspiring success stories where the person actually got it through hard work and perseverance. I thought about opening one lots and I always just end up not thinking it'll work. I would much rather just find someone that has that money and go work for them
  • The Helper The Helper:
    i am not talking about opening a brick and mortar I am talking about food trucks though I have seen some brick and mortar mexican places open up during covid that are doing good because there food is awesome!

    he is killing it
  • jonas jonas:
    @Varine with the restaurants, there surely is a lot of luck and hard work but most restaurants fail because they suck. Flair isn't right, economics not well thought through, food is mediocre or sucks, location is bad, etc. If you're thinking about opening one, make sure you're looking at the stories of those that would be playing at your level, don't let your hopes be dragged down by all the subpar restaurants out there.
  • jonas jonas:
    I'm a bit worried about the future of data science, there's an influx of incompetent people hired by incompetent managers, that can't last. But I'm sure smart data scientists will always be useful and hireable. Same as smart security people.

    My sister in law worked in a vegan food truck, the owners were also making a killing, added several trucks and opened two restaurants over 5 years

    The CompTIA stuff is pretty much crap unfortunately. The places that ask for those low-level certs aren't likely places you want to work. For IT you really want a degree, but in the meantime you need to figure out some way to learn the skills. Cybersecurity is really hot right now so competition is fierce.
