[SHOWOFF] Northeron
« on: June 30, 2010, 11:45:43 am »
I've decided to make a new region, in the zone now called "Quel'Thalas", the northern coast of Lordaeron (now fully selectable in game as region and viewable in the overrall azeroth map, i'm working on the zone map, soon screenies)

The zone is accessible from Hearthglen, Western Plaguelands (near the tower, starts a path in the mountains), Plaguewood (a mountain pass) Tirisfal Glade (swimming)

Northeron divided between four factions:
-Scarlet Crusade (Hearthglen Harbor)
-New Lordaeron (Northolme Village)
-High Elves (Dawnstrider Harbor)
-Scourge (Banewood Marshes / Stratholme sewers (brand new instance)
-Elementals (Voidheart Mansion -new instance)
-Wilhammer Dwarf (isle of Thor'Kargas)
-Wrykul (attacking the wildhammer isle)

This will be the starting zone for the new race on my server, the High Elves (not really new, but now avaiable)
now, it's lore time (not really xD)

You start on the eastern part of the banewood marsh, on a ship wrecked on the coast, you can see the ghostland over the sea, you did it!
you and few survivors are finally free from the magical thirst, embracing the power of Sideros (god of the stars, check my server lore) you've found a new source of power... but is not over yet!
The first task is to cross the banewood marsh, where hordes of scourge wander, flowing out from Stratholme (of wich you can see the outer wall burning...) ralliyng the survivors and completing some task you finally reached
Dawnstrider Harbor, the city of the High Elves (reaching level 7-8 at this point), where you must earn your stay! helping villagers and hunting creatures, until a human of the new lordaeron arrives, asking for help!, the commander has no choiche but to send you to the small village of Northolme, main harbor of the New Lordaeron forces, you're welcome here... (and here you should be at level 12-14)

... but not safe! the scarlet crusade is coming to attack the town from one side and the scourge from the other one!
you MUST defend the town, the humans who opened their arms to help you must be helped back!
Repelling the attack is not hard, and eventually you managed to do it (level 15-16)

the lordaeron commander Alestorm sought in you something of valor, and you are chosen to help a counter-attack! this time the Scarlet crusade will loose Hearthglen Harbor once and for all! (completing the prologue will bring you to level 20)

This is the prologue of the High Elf, at the end of wich you're sent to Soutshore to report to King Ralean Trollbane (the son of Galen) at Stromgarde City, becoming a part of the alliance, and the prologue is all set in an instanced copy of this map (on the normal map Hearthglen Harbor is already of the alliance and the whole zone is a high-level one)

Screens time!

Me and a friend of mine were developing a draft Northeron and maybe if you want we could collaborate all together for a better result.

Without wishing to boast, I consider myself an expert on the subject of Northeron after several months of research and I could help you to fit all the pieces. I would like to send you some information if you want.

i have just done a major overhaul, adding eventually a new sub-zone (that will be a daily quest hub) and this topic will have mostly updates about this subzone

Lore time? ok!
Not much to say, the inland zone is the same of the old project lorewise, except for the fact that:
-The banewood marshes have been mostly reduced and cleansed in the present day, becoming dawnstrider forest.
-The Stratholme outskirts are now nested on a cliff
-Just out in the offshores of Northeron lies a massive isle: Tor'Kargas, the home of a huge number of Wildhammer dwarfs.
The isle has been left separated from the world for long time, closed by a runeshield
But something went wrong, the runeshield has fallen and now a massive fleet of Wrykul invaders is coming, determined to conquer the isle as base for operations and incursions in the Eastern Kingdoms, but is not only that...
In the southwest corner of the isle lies an ancient peak, where once was a massive fortress of the clan now are only ruins and death... the zone was sealed long ago, but the evil powers of the Wrykul have broken the seal, allowing the hordes of undead dwarves to wander free and swarm the isle...
The wildhammer clan needs the heroes of azeroth now! they need to push back the enemies to preserve their largest haven and avoid a total annihilation.

End of lore
Technical infos:
The isle is divided in 4 pieces, the Tor'Kargas city (northwest corner), Grendel's Landing (northeast corner), Tol'Galar Fields (southeast corner), Kargas Peak (southwest corner)

Tor'Kargas city is a quest hub, rest place and general merchant/trading place
Grendel's Landing is the Wrykul fight zone
Tol'Galar Fields is the zone where all the heroes will land first, is both a quest hub and a fight zone (you will need to fight to unlock the road to all the other places)
Kargas Peak is the Undead fight zone

Screens for you :D
NOTE: the zone is half finished ONLY FOR TEXTURES and shaping, there are still few doodads/wmos
