Maybe he can also be called 'Artanis' or 'Fenix', because of his excellent voicing of these two Protoss legends (Remember the 'Return to Braxis' map). I also belive that you he's the one who voiced Artanis in VE. Good work! :D

The tracks are all licensed for use through a royalty free music site.  None of them (save 1) is from a movie, game, tv show etc.  I'll post the official track names and composers in the .txt once all the maps are out.

Awesome. On a slightly weird note, in the part where you use Scourge to kill the pylons, the AI can go out and build more pylons. You don't need to destroy them for the trigger to work, but it's just bizarre.

I was under the impression that he chose not to use copyright music due to copyright fears, my apologies.

@Krazy

[spoiler]There are a lot of ways to tackle the post-teleporter sequence.  If you're getting stuck I recommend the following:

1)  Do your best to maintain a group of 12 Zerg up to the teleporter part
2)  Take Belial and 3 hydralisks down the path to the lower left, leave Scourge, the zerglings, and the rest of the hydralisks between the gateways
3)  Once you get to the end of that path and destroy the pylon, your health is recharged for all units and there's only one gateway producing zealots
4)  Take your full group to the path on the right and finish that off[/spoiler]

And yes, cheat codes will break the map at many parts

I think your timing is a little messed up...I got the plasma warning when half my dudes were in the plasma killzone...then it went off. There was also a weird random bunch of dudes spawning in from nowhere up by where you kill the supply depot/blue guy.

EDIT: Last SCV/reactor doesn't turn blue. You kill it and it works, but shouldn't it be blue if it's the only one left?
EDIT2: Well I was going to complain about the boss fight but holy shit the voicework right after it is freaking amazing. Serious, serious props.

FINAL EDIT:

Overall, not a bad map, but I had higher hopes (instant death boss fight? whyyy?). I also pretty much played it through with just Belial and Scourge, since all my other guys got killed by the aforementioned surprise plasma. The only part that it seemed to handicap me at was the ultralisk patrol, and then only because they respawned.
[spoiler]I'm also unsure as to why the cerebrate even bothered with the Ultralisk patrol part, since the last mention either hero made of killing Kerrigan or not being aligned with her was well before that.[/spoiler]

With all my annoying complaints out of the way, the voicework was, again, astounding.

He f*****g did it again! 

[spoiler]

Bearing resemblance to Oracle's earlier creation Zuhl, Kaloth's voice must be the most amazing fan-made cerebrate I've ever heard!


Oh and who voice acted Ulrezaj by the way... I like his dark, insane character and the voice fits that personality completely.

Ugh...I lost an overlord full of hydras to the killzone, the warning should really come before it's too late. Or just have a blowback or something.

EDIT: The attackers keep attacking at the end even though they're supposed to have been driven off. (during the dialog)
[spoiler]As a whole, the defense part was really easy. I know that for lore reasons they don't use High Templar, but without Psionic Storm, the protoss don't stand a chance against your likely heavily upgraded units. At least give them some Dark Archons for Maelstrom.[/spoiler]

That said, I liked knowing in advance what I'd be fighting, that was a sort of feel-good scenario. Although there's a part where Scourge is like 'Yo I know how to beat them' and then doesn't say anything after that.
