First campaign description:

Map 1 The Vision: Karador begins his quest on Moon Island, an island that is a part of the Silver Cities, he wants to draw more followers to his mission he promises that everyone that helps him will be spared after he "cleans" the world.

A pretty easy map with some side quests, but it's mainly to get followers everyone who doesn't want to join him must be defeated.

Map 2 The Seals: According to Karador's clues there was a mighty creature in the past that could control space he was so dangerous that the Dragon Gods sealed him in the Beginning Dimension, to free him he needs to unlock the three ancient Seals and his clues tell him that the first one is in the valley of Heresh, but on his way he finds a Necromancer base he has to cross first before finding the hidden seal.

A though map (Not really hard) you need to find the key to unlock the seal and the seal itself and you'll need to battle Necromancers who don't want you to be here.

Map 3 The Majestic City: Karador's clues lead him to the Unicorn Empire which Karador hates because of the war that was going on there! But Zehir has heard of Karador's mission he joined forces with the Knights and locked the key in Talonguard which need to be conquered first before finding the next seal!

A hard map with many unexpected fights you'll need to push your way through many border guards and Garrisons while your opponents can reach you with Portals. Conquer Talonguard and then you need to find the Seal, be prepared because the Seal is hidden well :devil:

Map 4 The Portal: The seals are almost unlocked only one left! The last one is in Ygg-Chall when this is over Karador must set his sights to the Beginning Dimension where the Ancient one is locked away, but Karador gets help from King Findan who wants to end the wars just like Karador. Meanwhile the King of the Dark Elves Crage appears he is allinged with Duncan of the Unicorn Empire and will try to stop Karador.

The key and the seal are not very hard to find in this map, but the dimension is the problem once you unlock this seal a portal apears in Konos, the Maze of Shadows you must push your way in and through only Karador can use this portal once entered you win the map!

Map 5 The Ancient One: Victory is near! The Beginning Dimension is a big place where the Ancient One is hidden, but if anyone can do it it's Karador. But soon Karador finds out that he is not alone here there are invaders from another Dimension who dwell here and want to banish Karador

A very hard Map Karador will travel through blue planes where he has to fighs hordes of Creatures and the Invaders, but in the end he'll find the Ancient One.

Second campaign:

Map 1 The Rebelion: With the Dark Elves driven away from their homelands, King Crage now leads them and he'll try to libberate all Dark Elven Cities. He has to recapture all cities captured by Karador, before he returns with the Ancient One.

A hard, unbalanced map where you start with one Town and Karador with 6. The first ones are easy to catch, but it gets thougher after each capture once you capture them Karador returns with his creature!

Map 2 The Meteor: Crage is furious, if Karador wishes to end all the wars how can he conquer his lands? So he has to stop Karador, wich has the Elves on his side. He follows them to the Unicorn Empire wich has been destroyed by a large meteor of the Ancient One. Karador cursed the remaining cities as his palaces. Crage needs to find King Duncan to know exactly what happened. Of course Crage needs to learn the weakness of his enemies he needs to pulverise!

All right another hard map most of the Unicorn Empire is flooded and the remaining land is Lava terrain with some Academy towns on it. This map is extremely hard because of all of the patrols of Karador. Duncan is hidden underground in an old Haven base once you find him you'll learn that Karador is still here and that he sees you as a threath, but his Dragon is way too strong to confront so you'll need to do something else.

It's top secret from now :P

Characters:

Karador
Image

Though a good man the reason he is not accepted in the Circle is because of his lack of patience he always says: Let's get going to end conversations he does not want to have.

Crage
Image

Crage a major member of the Dark Elf Nightshard Clan and the protector of the Maze of Shadows, he has recently been crowned King of all Dark Elves and he wishes to stop Karador at all costs

The Ancient One
Image

The creature that created Space it was so dangerous that the Dragon Gods sealed him away inside the Beginning Dimension.

When the time comes, I'd be interested in beta testing.

I will say, though, that I'm a little surprised with some of your choices regarding the new creatures. Some of it seems clever and fresh, but some of the choices seem rather odd. The really broad damage ranges mean that Mass Divine Strength would affect certain Nexus creatures more potently than any other creatures in the game percentage-wise, and some of the upgrades seem somewhat haphazard instead of being mere tweaks of the base creature.

I had Inferno in mind when I made the post, and that's why I specified percentage-wise rather than points of damage per creature. Percentage-wise, I'm pretty sure that (1-6) would be the most extreme spread in the game.

The stats are more or less just placeholders, they will be used for the beta but will be tweaked a lot if the town becomes too overpowered. We're more worried about graphics right now than stats, there'll be time for that later...

For anyone interested, the first stage of beta testing will begin on January 13th 2008. The beta will include the first campaign and the Nexus faction (which will require plenty of balancing). Anyone who wants to become involved can send Kronos or me a PM.
