The Black Company is a campaign being developed by BadThrall. The campaign also received help from Fuertisimo but he has since left the project. The goal is to provide an accurate(mostly) and fun rendition of Glen Cook's novel, The Black Company, using the Warcraft 3 engine.

The development of this campaign started slightly after the Frozen Throne was released, which was around two years ago now. (Although that doesn't mean I'm working on it around the clock, simply intervals of time)

Story Clips:

Croaker spoke to assembled Company:
In olden times the outfit consisted entirely of black soldiers. Thus the name. Its slow drift northward has seen not only its diminustion but a shift in its makeup. One-Eye is the only black man with us today.
We are the last of the Twelve True Companies. We have out-endured the others by more than a century, but I fear we're into our twilight days. I fear this may be the Company's final commission. A page of history is about to turn. Once it does, the great warrior brotherhoods will be gone and forgotten.

But Croaker was wrong...

Some feel the Lady, newly risen from centuries in thrall, stands between humankind and evil. Some feel she is evil itself. The hardbitten men of the Black Company take their pay and do what they must buring their doubts with their dead.

Until the prophecy: The White Rose has been reborn, somewhere, to embody good once more.

There must be a way for the Black Company to find her...

You have to put the TheBlackCompanyBetav15.w3n file into your warcraft 3 Campaigns folder and then launch warcraft 3 and go into single player and then into custom Campaigns and then select black company and there you go.

Damn... played it, enjoyed every moment. Even the frustration on certain levels... SO HARD! :D That's why I love the campaign. Too bad they didn't made a total conversion out of it. WIth custom maps for multiplay. The new human/mercenary race is way too addicting. Just loved my stygian cavalary/soldier/brigand combination.
