News and Updates
The Campaign Creations forum will be undergoing some extreme forum upgrading. We apologize, but this may involve taking the forum down for an extended period of time. During the process, the forum may be live at times for testing purposes, however until this post states the update is complete, we cannot guarantee any content, post, or threads to be retained if you post during temporary uptime.
This upgrade is an extreme version change in phpBB and will break current mods we have installed. In addition, it will break the layout we are currently having. In the spirit of having the forum live as soon as possible, once upgrading is completed, there may be live forum theme changes occurring from a default phpBB theme to the traditional Campaign Creations theme. Please work with us in accepting this temporary issue, but rest assured posting as normal will function and in due time the forum will return to its original appearance to the best of our ability.
We have one major mod that may affected during this process: The Blog feature. We will do all in our power to get this mod to continue to function, however we apologize if the creator of the mod has not crafted a working version of this mod with the latest update. If the mod fails to cooperate, we will be retaining the data for the unforseen future in the hopes the developer of the mod will update it properly.
Thank you for understanding.

Wanderers of Sorceria X1: The Dark Ocean ~ The Tale of Hokuto
Taking place following the conclusion of Book 6, The Dark Ocean is a short 4-mission* campaign featuring the esper Hokuto, who woke up in 1575 Feudal Japan at the cusp of a battle that changed the course of the country's history. Allied with Vance of the Shrike Mercenaries, Hokuto is haunted by the dreams of a vast black ocean threatening to swallow her very existence.
- Fight alongside Hokuto and Vance with more useful abilities
- Battle against foes who love knockback abilities as much as you love using them
- Enjoy a throwback to an era when Blizzard wasn't owned by Activision
- Bask in the tongue-in-cheek nonsense in a flavor only Razorclaw X could give you
- Pad a list to make it even bigger
* Actual mission count may vary.
(This post is a repost of RazorclawX's original post.)

"'Warcraft IV comes up, especially as the community gets excited about the Warcraft universe," he explained. "We're focused on getting Legacy of the Void done right now, so I don't think we've had the mindshare to say, 'Absolutely, we're gonna be doing X, Y, or Z next.' Going back to the Warcraft universe would be awesome. I'd love to see that happen.'
"He added that the development team is about to add a bunch of official Warcraft assets to StarCraft II's mod tools so players can create their own Warcraft scenarios in-engine. They're based on Warcraft III—not a hypothetical Warcraft IV, sadly—and they're coming out early next year."

In front of a live crowd of more than 25,000 BlizzCon attendees and an expected online audience numbering in the millions, Blizzard Entertainment today announced Overwatch, a pick-up-and-play first-person shooter featuring an amazing cast of heroes and set in an all-new Blizzard game universe.
The action of Overwatch takes place in a technologically advanced, highly stylized future earth. In a time of global crisis, an international task force of soldiers, scientists, adventurers, and oddities known as Overwatch had come together to restore peace to a war-torn world. After many years, the group’s influence waned, and it was eventually disbanded. Overwatch might be gone now . . . but the world still needs heroes.
With an emphasis on accessibility and pure fun, Overwatch brings Blizzard’s signature easy-to-learn, hard-to-master gameplay to the FPS genre. Harnessing the power of their hero of choice, players will join forces in teams of six and battle each other across a range of futuristic global locations, from the hologram-lit streets of London to a bazaar in the shadows of a high-tech Egyptian pyramid. Every battlefield is iconic and built to highlight each character’s unique abilities, and fights can shift from streets to rooftops to open skies within the span of a breath.
Check out the cinematic and gameplay trailer over at the Overwatch site and additional information such as classes, features, and more!
