Lord of the Clans 3.0 released!

Yes, it's finally out! I've been working hard to update my first WarCraft 3 campaign, Lord of the Clans, since summer 2019. The update can be considered an almost total remake. Almost all maps have been replaced and there are many new custom features I would like to highlight here.

- 8 single-player missions with extensive RPG gameplay
- 3 cinematic maps with cutscenes
- 67 quests with 7-9 hours of playtime
- Highly customizable main character, with 12 combat abilities that can be switched at any time and 5 hero abilities with unique bonuses
- Backpack with 5 specialized hero abilities to craft and carry items, summon a fire pit, improve cooking and looting. Also used to select combat abilities, research upgrades and summon additional companions
- Fire Pit that consumes lumber to heal nearby units and cook small animals to gain additional attribute points
- Can spend gold and lumber to research 15 unique upgrades and summon 9 different companions
- Enhanced and more action-oriented combat with enemies that use telegraphed/avoidable attacks and lower cooldowns and mana consumption for spells
- High quality terrain and cinematics, supported by many custom assets
- Based on the novel Lord of the Clans by Christie Golden

You can download the campaign from Hiveworkshop.com or my Google Drive.
