New Campaign: Heart of Men

Postby Marine » Thu Dec 17, 2009 3:39 pm

Hey guys :)

The Empire. The Dominion. All ruled by one man. Mengsk. Emperor Arcturus Mengsk. A man whom you could sum up with one word – Betrayer – Mengsk has betrayed many over the centuries of his existence. Mengsk betrayal is one of mysteries and clouded without reason, his betrayal of Sarah Kerrigan is one clouded by either jealously or anger, but his betrayals have caused major ramifications over the galaxy. Sarah Kerrigan now the Queen of Blades has run amok over the stars demolishing life with in the galaxy and her Zerg Swarm. James Raynor has rallied supporters against Mengsk to form the Raiders to attack Mengsk from his fringe worlds.
Mengsk’s powerful words and manipulative tactics have caused others to be betrayed. He manipulated others to do his bidding, manipulated Edmund Duke to betray his land, world, people and government. His generals continue to follow in his footsteps… but perhaps the greatest betrayal will come back to haunt him.
On the world of Al Sera, there lays the fringe city known as New Antelis, with survivors from the plague the Zerg unleashed upon them during the Confederacy’s blind control. Arcturus Mengsk, bitter from his defeat to Kerrigan even with the combined effort of the Protoss and the UED at Omega. Kerrigan roamed free and the Dominion was in shambles. In an effort to control his worlds and make sure no one was against his tyrannical rule he would declare martial law and enforce harsh taxes and even more crucial laws such as curfews on his close worlds. On Al Sera which is known for a rich source of Vespene Gas has sent one of his most trusted general Matthew Stafford to enforce the martial law and claim the gas for the Dominion’s power!
As Stafford forces his law he issues a draft. One unique soldier he drafts is Private Brock Tortorella, when the Zerg begin to invade the planet he leads survivors to the ruins of Antelis and holds off the assault until Stafford’s forces arrive. Over the months he rises through the ranks and becomes Stafford’s trusted Lieutenants, until the Protoss arrive.
Kerrigan manipulates a fellow commander to speak with Stafford and as the meeting goes on, Brock notices changed to Stafford’s face and expressions, as it seems he becomes more and more under Kerrigan’s powers. Kerrigan manipulates Stafford to side with him and go against Mengsk’s wishes and fight the Protoss who are just arriving to attack Kerrigan. Kerrigan uses Stafford’s power against his own men as she realizes the connection Brock and Stafford have together as soldiers she attempts to recreate the Mengsk betrayal.
Stafford betrays Brock on Antelis which at first Brock believes to chase off the protoss leaders until he sees Stafford fly away alongside Kerrigan but the Zerg attack Brock’s forces.
The Darkness of Men’s heart is easily turned, for power and the image of glory. Kerrigan will bring the galaxy to her knees; with Stafford under her wing… the Dominion shall soon fall under her!

Characters:
Gen. Stafford
A strong, powerful general under Mengsk. Mengsk sends him to New Antelis to fight off the Zerg and take the Vespene veins from the planet to fuel their massive fleet until the Zerg arrive and Kerrigan turns Stafford to her side and forces him to betray his own men and destroy the Protoss.
Brock Tortorella:
Brock is a young but talented soldier that was drafted under Stafford to help control New Antelis under martial law and force his control over the civilians. He is later betrayed by Stafford and surrounded by suicidal humans and friends along with Protoss and Zerg.
Sarah Kerrigan:
Sarah Kerrigan leads the Zerg Swarm to New Antelis and is the main antagonist that later attempts to control General Stafford to her power. She uses his knowledge in an attempt to fully destroy Mengsk and every other enemy, but first she must cut all ties from his army and forces Stafford to betray his followers.
Praetor Zel’ashn
Zel’ashn is the commander of the Executors forces attempting to eliminate Kerrigan on New Antelis until it turns against him when the Terrans begin to serve Kerrigan. He ends up on the final battle surrounded by Zerg but ends up siding with Brock to fight off Stafford’s men and the Zerg and they escape to Shakuras after the Executor’s reinforcements.

Screenshots coming soon!

Mengsk has betrayed many over the centuries of his existence?  He's like not even 50 years old.  I think you mean decades,  :P

Sounds like you've got a pretty solid storyboard lined up already. I'll be looking forward to this campaign. Have you read I, Mengsk? If you want to learn more about how easily Arcturus betrays even those that are close to him, that will definitely help you out a lot. Not even his family stands in the way of his goals.

One little problem I noticed in your description so far is that very, VERY few people know how Sarah Kerrigan came to be the Queen of Blades (at least, according to Gabriel Tosh) so you might need to change Brock Tortorella's past around a little bit in order to support him knowing about Arcturus betraying her at New Gettysburg above Tarsonis. Perhaps he was a member of the Sons of Korhal that didn't participate in the New Gettysburg assault?

Hello all. Sorry I've been away for awhile, I've been playing WoW ever since the announcement of Cataclysm and got my Xbox and enjoying Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2. But I got that idea because I recently re-installed StarCraft so I just decided to make a campaign again and I knew that this was the place to come.
Screenshots will probably come later tonight!

Sorry I hate to double post but here are some screenshots from map (cutscene) one: Martial Law.

Image
Seargent Stathan and Private Brock Tortorella exchange words.

Image
Brock wishes for the days of war and action like that battle at Omega...

Image
Alert!

Image
General Stafford arrives...

Image
Many ground troops lie within those dropships...

Image
New Antelis carries many Vespene Ore geysers.

Image
General Stafford arrives within the city.

Image
Stafford introduces himself.

Image
Stafford shows much cruelty to people who disrespect him or his rank and would share no expense in obliterating them.

Oh I realize that. I'll be changing all that when I am finished. This is just regular StarCraft.
