It was really rude of me to leave map described like that, so i came to change it. First of all, forgive me for description you are about to see because i am writing it based on remains of my memory of making it. It is not very recent map.
Earthsong II - Mitula's Seal
Rise of dark spirits over northern lands, followed by great raids of centaurs have forces three orcish clans to flee to the lands of Aragnia. Restless centaurs followed them shortly, their armies landed at southern shores of Aragnia. Earthsong clan was lone in these areas, since rockfury went north and skysong clan inhabited central area of that continent. Under merciless strike of centaurs Earthsong clan has fallen, warlord Skabuz and his wife Agai were sent by the chieftain of earthsong clan to escape so they can gather their brethren clans and claim right on their new lands once again. They fought bravely, and with many losses centaur army has been defeated. But their victory didnt last long, dark clouds were still over the world. Soon an army of demons has risen from fortress of nearby fortress of Malaku trolls! Elders of Skysong fell under corruption and with them skysong has been lost, rockfury clan was so well hidden and had no part in combat. The only orcish clan left in the way of trolls was the Earthsong. In the heat of fight, Skabuz sent his wife, Agai, and his baby son Rogan in escort of elder Thazz to search for new home!
This is where Mitula's seal starts.
Several years have passed, Thazz and Agai took care about Rogan, he grew strong and finally went to seek vengeance for his father's grave. But yet, corruption that already has taken huge part of world was well hidden and unknown to Thazz, so Rogan had to search for answers at temple of goddess Mitula. Rogan met Xaru, priestess of Mitula and fell in love, tho that does not matter. During the conversation between Rogan, Xaru and Mitula, dark lord Kazin using magic of ancient tower appears in form of ghost in front of Rogan and threats him with his life.. Rogan ... blinded with rage, asked Mitula where to find him and started looking for his way to the ancient tower. In the way to the ancient tower Rogan met Oracle, defeated voodoo lords of Medani tribe and solved mystery of forgoten Mitula's temple...or was it Aragnia's... sorry. In the wake of chaos, Rogan met Aragnia (in her elven form) and aware of her role in current corruption he slaughtered her. But with death of Aragnia new evil has been born, an evil of unimaginable strength. Spirit of Zeon carried by Aragnia slowly started corruption of Rogan's mind. Just after Kazin's defeat, Mitula has entered room, where they were about to seal the ancient evil. Demon has spoken trough Rogan, so he tried to kill Mitula in place, luckily she escaped. Xaru tried to stop him, but she couldnt match his new strength, again luckily for her, Rogan's still orcish half could not end her life. So Rogan left the anciet tower.

Earthsong III - Rise of Spirits
Hours after Rogan left, Xaru arrives at earthsong refugee encampment.
Begining of Act III ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- will be uploaded
End of Act III ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Now we have Zuka, after everything ends, lands of Taya, lands of Aragnia and northern lands are not having a single living soul. Well there description at Zuka so i will not start it here, i will just mention that Zuka comes from future but still she does not know who is she actually fighting against, she gets tricked few times.
Thing that makes Zuka important to this map is that Zuka will interfare at moment where Rogan is about to get corrupted by Aragnia's demon. Another important thing to conclude is that Zuka has been setting traps for Rogan, guided by Kazin who was hiding his true identity until there was no more need for it. Since these two stories are weaved, i decided to upload mitula's seal as well.
Another important thing to note is that texts will not exactly match, i cannot actually remember but if Aragnia is called sister of Mitula or something lets say thats what i wrote in Zuka's description - hiding shameful act of Suna and Mitula.
Once again accept my apologizes because of left map un described and, forgive me because lack of pictures, i do not have any. I believe i have made crappy sentences also, i will take a moment to look upon what i wrote and fix sense if there is need for it.
After ending of great corruption caused by Aragnia, the balance has finally been restored to the lands of Taya. Along with corruption, pact of peace between forces of Cloverhold and Earthsong clan has faded away. Blinded by hatred proud members of great factions have forgotten about an enemy they have in common. The Malaku, trollish tribe from lands of Taya, heeds call of shadowy spirits and has started preparations for the summoning of dark lord from the depths of forgotten seas. The only aware of situation is Mitula, so she sends signs hoping for the answer. Chosen heroes from both factions led by signs of goddess are starting an adventure.
Few words about map:
Map is divided in two half, on left side of map is Cloverhold Fortress while on right side is Earthsong Clan. Terrains are less or more equal, quests, items, monsters and story are equally arranged for both factions. As you start you will have control over your hero, with only one spell (4 for druid) rest of spells as well as their rank improvements are trainable at your class trainer for 50 gold. Map requires lot of luck, or lot of farming if you are playing it in singleplayer mode. Otherwise it should be fun and medium hard. During the quest you will fight many angry mobs and bosses, but also you will be able to challenge opposing team in the capture the flag battleground or arena combat. Aside to this, you will be able to train two professions :
Mining - allows you to collect various ores those can be sold or used for crafting powerful armors Herbalism - allows you to collect various herbs those can be sold or used for creating useful potions and elixirs
Later in game you will be offered guild invitations, once you join the guild (Order of Strength / Order of Wisdom) you will be granted access to the guild shops and in addition to your old "Egress Stone" you will be able to use new ability to teleport to your guild house. But that is not all, when you join guild you will receive special bonus to your status, and each time you kill monster you will gain additional experience and gold. (Not additional gold in fact just gold, because monsters do not award gold when die)
The fact already mentioned about gold awards, does it's job. Nice addition to low drop rates is no gold from monsters. So you will have to use your professions to craft items or potions, or sell materials for gold in order to train spells or buy something of equipment. Monsters have good chance to drop sellable junk (armor scraps, bolts of cloth, spider silk and such items)
Quest system, quest system is pretty dynamic and interesting, its not using F9 standard menu, but on other side this is allowing you to complete collection quests before you even acquire specific quest. To complete quest, or make a progress at it, you will have to be in 1000 yards from dying monster (mainly). Quest items will be dropped by monsters only if someone nearby has quest in progress, with exception of "Scrolls of Magic" quest, because those scrolls can be used for sale.
- Luckily now i can say that terrain is 80% done, in these 80% dungeons and pvp areas are not included those things are on 10%. One town is missing in north on both sides, there will be some guilds to join those are going to provide discounts on various items and also give you some passive bonuses but that will make you hated with other guilds in town. I think two guilds will be fine, maybe three... But eh, i am afraid to exceed limit size, since i am not familiar to multi player i dont know what limit is at all, something like 6Mb? Im close to that. Doodads are eating so much space, never felt it til now. So if size stuck, i am going to recreate terrain, that will be painful..

I have tried to make system that will be doing something like save/load, and i made something. It is not something great, but it can make gameplay slightly easier. That code can handle potions/scraps/ores/herbs... items those are equipped (items those are not equipped will be lost), professions, hero level and hero type. That is it :( Spells and nonequipped items will be lost, so you will have to train them again). I have tried to cleanse all bugs i found, or people who were playing with me. Hopefully you will enjoy this map until next update.
- Updated save/load code, it will handle abilities as well as their ranks.
Following spells now should be MPI: - Relentless Storm - Shadow Trance (shadowMark effect) - Surge of Spirits (Absorb effect) - Inner Spirit
Damage of Relentless Storm spell reduced to 30/60/90 per second, and duration reduced to 3.5 seconds. New terrain applied at Malaku fortress (Earthsong Side)
Here is situation, i was playing map today on the garena. And i concluded that players do not like quests, mobs, farming and .... They like pvp.
So i have made today one extra battleground, and fixed capture the flag one, where goal is to gather 500 resources. I believe you have already played wow, well this is same thing as arathi basin.
Following pictures will explain battleground precisely:
Lands of Conquest
Earthbender - Orc
Night Elf Druid
Please read updates!
Here are some videos to bring game play closer to you: (Note that on some i am using cheats, because i am terrible player and i cannot play this alone, however i have tried to not kill monsters until they cast their spells so you can see all of it.)

Thank you for playing my maps.
Now it is that moment, i have uploaded unprotected version of map. As i said i am tired of it :/
There is one important thing to notice, i have increased ranks of all abilities to 10. But tooltips are fine just for first 10 abilities that i edited, after that i just did fast copy paste and auto fill levels, so you might see some weird stuff :D
Following list contains names of people who created models those are used in creation of this campaign. Though that is just small part of what is inside, many models are created by me or exported from wow mpq i have also exported several tiles and sound tracks, in addition to those i have downloaded and converted musical tracks made by audiomachine from youtube.
Story Asz i should say.. Once upon a time, in world of warrior's and mages, a witch has been born! Her parents named her Sarah, pleased to have beautiful daughter they sent her to learn magics in lands of high elven lord Suna. As time was passing, she started to have visions, something has been troubling her soul. She was asking for help, but when it was heard of her visions she has been called a witch and banished from lands of the elves! Young Sarah, looking for vengeance and following her visions has been brought to the peak of mount regal! And so she started a summoning spell, with goal to summon lesser demon just to torment her teacher's mind for short time, she summoned the greatest evil ever known! As it was her destiny to bring Zeon to that world, she has been first host of horrifying spirit. Summoning of Zeon has been disturbed goddess Mitula and god Volcanon, they have summoned lord Suna to the Vulcanon's palace and told him what has happened! Touched by the moment Suna falls in love with Mitula, but she slaps him and threats of summoning other elven lord instead of him! Force of great heroes has been made and with help of Mitula and Volcanon Zeon has been sealed within Ancient Tower in lands of Taya, Taya is old goddess mother of Mitula and Volcanon. Volcanon used all of his energy to summon emerald dragons who will enchant seal so that it can never be broken, after what he collapsed! Centuries were passing in peace, Lord Suna has risen his magical powers and became almost powerful as Mitula, so he has been granted premission to visit her temple and watch over Ancient Tower, until the day when they both fell in love and elven girl has been born, they named her Aragnia but since such act should never happen they decided to keep it as secret and after a while to present Aragnia as high priestess of Mitula! Soon after their relation has been torn apart and they have never seen each other again! Aragnia was raised by both, but she was spending most of her time with Suna in his fortress! Aragnia liked to read about historical events and so she found out about Zeon, and power that can overcomes any on her world! Unhappy of her hidden origins and fact that she is forbidden to call her self a goddess, she starts a venture to release the darkest demon of all and use his power to rule the world on her own! She travels to the ancient tower and tricks watcher with blinding magic, kills her afterwards and breaks the seal! Aragnia felt enhancement of her powers, but yet after so many years sealed demon was weak and Aragnia needed to collect sources of great power to gain full strength of demon! Only reliable source of power were held by two trollish tribes Meddani and (i damn forgot other name). Aware of trollish history and their dark past she knew that there could be found more than just sources of power, and so she took control over minds of trollish shamans and used them to summon dark voodoo lord kazin who will protect her until she gains full strength! But that was not all, during her voyage centaurs, gnolls, fulborgs and many other creatures and wild beasts felt dark presence and fell under corruption or died instantly if were weaker! Therefor corrupted centaurs have risen over northern lands and chased three orcish clans to the lands of Aragnia. Lands of Aragnia is an ancient continent that never had some specific name until birth of Aragnia. There orcs faced corrupted trolls and things to be worse they have been followed by hordes of centaurs! Heroes have risen among orcs! High Warlord Skabuz and his wife Agai have led forces and stopped centaur invasion once and for all times! But voodoo magic was growing rapidly, no one really had clue what should have been done! So Skabuz went to see oracle, where he has learned part of the prophecy! His first two kids Skazz and Agnia were the only hope that world had, and they had to be sealed. Orcale has summoned Mitula and all five of them went to the temple and locked down those two rising spirits! Several years after, Skabuz got another son who has been named Rogan! That was year of rising darkness, (yea i got it) Skysong clan fell under voodoo magic of Malaku shamans, Earthsong clan has been on the edge of extinction when Skabuz sent her wife Agai in escort of Elder Thazz to search new home for their son! Rogan grew fast seeking vengeance for death of his father he discovers voodoo corruption and mystery of Aragnia! Enraged Rogan kills Meddani voodoo lord, fallen leaders of Skysong and meets the oracle! There she points him to the Ancient tower, in heart of tower he found dark voodoo lord Kazin and slaughtered him on justice of god! But there was not only Kazin, Aragnia was hidding inside of tower! Rogan found her and with few merciless slices of his blade Aragnia let her soul seek for peace! But spirit of Zeon has been left behind! Rogan was more than powerful enough to be host for dark spirit, but his mind was weaker and he fell under will of Zeon!!! Upon his return to Earthsong refugee camp, no one survived! Even his mother Agai and Thazz the elder, everyone have been slaughtered! Dumba, the goblin trapper, and Xaru priestess of Mitula went to release already forgoten children of Skabuzz, as it was Agai's wish on death! Once kids have been freed they went to lands of Aragnia where little skazz was training to be both powerful and wise warrior! Time was not on their side, Rogan's corruption has been spreading like wast all around the world, everything was in jeopardy and every second some beast or humanoid were taking demon forms! Few years after Skazz reaches sacred point on lands of Taya, the Mitula's Sancutary, from where he strikes Ancient Tower! Fight with his fallen brother was more than a combat, world was trembling as they jump on each other, and finally Skazz overpowered Rogan! Upon landing lethal strike it was not only Rogan who was dying, but it was zeon itself! A surge of darkness that cannot be described has been released! That shatterning wave sunken lands of Taya into the ocean, northrern lands as well as lands of Aragnia fell under corruption as long as they are wide! The only part that has evaded corruption was part behind mountain of spirits on lands of Aragnia! Place that has been inhabited by Rockfury orcish clan, who were only clan to feel north, because of search of ores. Beside them there are small dwarven village, several human encampents and remains of taurens. Direhoof Taurens were peacefull tribe, who came to offer their help in war against Rogan. But they could not speak orcish language, so Rockfury has made war against them, and when Skazz was passing trough Rockfury fortress, he has been given task to kill all taurens he can find and so he did... During the days of war goblin Razza who was friend of everyone, had cousin, daughter of Margaret and Patak. Zuka was cute little girl, he couldnt risk her life to be lost or to be doomed to work as stripper in his brothel. Then he sent her to be cared by the elders of Rockfury! Soon after that war ended and world was lost! --------------------------------------------------------- Twenty years later, only world that exists is behind mountain of spirits! Young Zuka starts her journey! Visions of tauren guides her to the shrine, where she communes with ancestral spirits. Once she learned that her uncle is as dead as rotten potato she starts crying! But the spirits have had actually chosen Zuka to change flew of history! Zuka searches for Den of Elements, to find time traveling passages those will connect her with years passed and so she can prevent greatest disaster ever known! Trough rift of times Zuka gains blessing of various spirit, so you can play up to 3 classes [/color]
