Zombie Rising - Evil Awakened Version 1.50 DL LINK: https://www.epicwar.com/maps/284634/ WARNING : Map no longer works with latest WC3 Patch 1.30! Players will crash one by one 20 minutes into game. This used to be one of my most stable maps but now I'm afraid its unplayable along with all my other maps. Obviously theres no point in me updating any of my other maps until the issues brought on by Patch 1.30 are fixed. The only consolation I have is that chinese players of this map will still be able to play it as they use their own WC3 platform to play custom games on. (@LALAGOODWIN @Excalibur ) NEW CONTENT: - New area has been added: "Blackthicket Village" along with new boss encounter and chapter: "The Blood Harvest" - This includes our introduction to a new character: "Alrrict The Pious" and reveals the strained relationship between the "Daughters of the Priestess" and "Order of Hoeth" factions. - Each Guardian starts with a unique low level, limited use item. - The general goods vendor now also sells Engineering repair Kits, the Engineer's Guildmaster hero can then use these to repair mechanical units like Trebuchets and Cannons. Can only be used by the Guildmaster. - The Engineer hero now also becomes invisible for 7 seconds when casting his Doppleganger ability which ensures he loses aggro from creeps when using Mirror image CHARACTER LORE: Arabella Chaist CLASS: The Priestess FACTION: Daughters of the Priestess "Every 100 years the powers of Hoeth; God of light and healing, manifest themselves within a young girl of lowly birth. She is always from a poor, peasant family but gifted with kindness and a nurturing nature. Arrabella was just 8 when the divine powers began to shine within her, since then they have bloomed along with her growing fame across the land. But she has chosen to shun the summons of the King and the riches of the powerful lords to be with the peasantry of Northiem. Like so many Priestesses before her she has chosen to remain where she can do most good. But a burden rests heavy on her shoulders, for as her powers grow she senses something dark and sinister rising throughout Northiem, a malignant but creeping shadow that spreads through the cursed land... As she sits and prays within her church she is not alone. Five guardians argue among themselves about the best way to protect her, but as the undead surround her sacred home she realizes it is too late. The evil she feared has awakened and only one path remains before her..." CHARACTER LORE: Alrrict The Pious CLASS: Priest of Hoeth FACTION: Order of Hoeth "Like many of his peers, Alrrict believes himself to be a devout and steadfast follower of Hoeth. His unrelenting devotion to the light is without question, he firmly believes this undead plague to be a divine punishment from Hoeth wrought upon man for their sins. He has gathered his flock of followers at Blackthicket Village and has coerced them into sacrificing themselves and their families to purge them of their sins! Alrrict is distrustful of the Priestess, the Order of Hoeth does not officially recognize her title and many Priests claim her to be a charlatan. Why should Hoeth bless a peasant girl of lowly birth with his great powers? Why should she become his vessel when they have devoted their whole lives to his service? They also fear the power she wields over the peasant folk, who love and adore the priestess for her selfless service and ability to heal all their wounds, and jealously covet her incredible holy powers of light and healing. Even now, as the darkness rises and surrounds them, they stubornly refuse to acknowledge her powers..."
