I do recommend that you all work on all maps though so that you all have the story written in the same "mood" and "feeling". Also, so that the overall gameplay goes together in a good manner! :)


For sure. That would be the problem of everyone doing their own map without much collaboration. The story and gameplay could be disjointed, as well as the gameplay. That's probably why Karmakeld was initially wondering how multiple people could realistically work on the same campaign :D

The story would need to be hashed out really well at the beginning of the project, followed by a break up of the story by map to get the map sizes in a good place.

It might be fun to do a good vs. evil, but explore the evil side of things ;)

I would rather do opposite - so every one has his unique style and player could distinguish them. I think it would very much benefit the story - every place will be sketched differently so that the story is more realistic. It would be awesome to compare mapmakers styles in one campaign.

It shouldn't take long also. Making Medium map takes max a month. There is one problem - many mapmakers have theirs projects undergoing.

It can be a simple story really. For example we think out of main milestones in the story. For example one milestone is find precious artifact to do something with it. Then for example I get this idea and I must know two things: how it starts and how it ends. The rest I can improvise during creating plot and the map.

Yeah that was my initial thought. Hero, how do you guys split the work load? Oh and do you wanna join ;) on one hand I think it's interesting with 'map responsibility' and what will follow of different perspectives on game play and storytelling, but it's true it might mess up the feeling of being 'one' campaign.

Well Duzeom, I do think we'd need to agree on some in between milestones to get a consisting story, otherwise I think it might be more like x small stories within the big one. Idea comes to mind, it could be made like WoW or TGS, seperate stories with same start and end?
On a side note, playing and testing each others maps, might help 'unite' the maps.
Duzeom, you want this moved out of your campaign tread?

It all depends on how deep you go into your planning I would believe! Who knows, you guys may be able to do it, you are all complete map makers. Me and Yurian need to work together because we complete eachother.
I would love to help, just a big question on what part you would need me on! I will have a lot of time for like 1 month haha!

I started playing your campaign, on champion. First scenario was a nightmare but I managed to finish it. I also finished a second one and it's pretty fun to have 3 thieves and quickly covering map with them. I will write more later.

Glad to hear that! I hope that You will like it. The first choice of the wand is quite essential. Nevertheless you should buff your thieves heroes because you will need them strong in the next maps.

Regarding the last Megom Chronicles chapter, I am currently on a stop with this project, due to many twists and turns in my life. I was trying to learn how to make scripts with h4util, because doing scripts by clicking is a big waste of time. Maybe the tool which iLiVeInAbOx is developing will help me.
