Summary:
A single-player story-driven action map inspired by "Groundhog day" and "Mother of learning". You are caught in a timeloop. You can't right-click your way to victory in this one. Expect various game scenarios and mechanics rarely(and
maybe never before) seen in Warcraft 3.

Plot:
A long time ago in a country far away a young recruit was on his way to his new assignment..


FAQ:
-Is this map hard?
-Not really but in some scenarious you'll have to think quickly to overcome the cirscumstances. Enemies are stronger than you and only your wit can assure the victory. I completed this map before the release and had no difficulties with the bosses. Every battle scenario is carefully balanced(as it should be). Save often, don't die.

-How long does it take to beat?

-About 1-1.5 hours depending whether you rush it or not.

-Is the story finished?
-Yes and no.
It has 2 endings - With one of them the story is finished(no cliffhangers).
But there's the second:
You can activate the second ending by typing "-altend" at any time during gameplay and when you finish the map - it will play. You will get confirmation after typing the command.
Originally I planed it to be 4 chapters. However I could not do this alone because I"m bad at terraining and no one responded to help me(which is okay, I'm not complaining). That said - if I ever find someone to help me I'll continue the development and I'll even have the characters voiced.
If I do not continue development - I consider this map to be finished. First 2 chapters make a short finished story by themselves
with a solid ending.



-Reforged or not Reforged?
-If you have a choice between playing it in Reforged mode or Classic -
play it in Reforged. All cutscenes have been made and perfected in
Reforged mode. In Classic W3 you won't get the intended experience.
However I tried and it launches on classic W3(current Battle.net version) but there are some issues I discovered:
-Some character animation looks sped up;
-Sometimes ambient sounds are too loud.
I never fully completed this map in classic mode but in theory there should not be any game-breaking issues.

I hope you have fun with this map and the story! If you have any feedback - please let me know.


USING CHEATS EXTREMELY NOT RECOMMENDED - IT WILL BREAK SOME CUTSCENES. Please do not report any bug if you used cheats.
