A Silent Scream - Custom Campaign
A Silent Scream is my first custom campaign. My nickname is IeZaeL , you might know me as the creator of some famous melee maps , such as Coda , that stayed in ladder for over 2 seasons and got played at Blizzcon 2015. Lately I lost passion putting hours of thoughts into a map layout only to find out it will never work, so I started creating a short adventure following the character of Ma'lash, a character that I really liked even though he did not really have a whole lot of story told/to tell. Little is known about Ma'lash past, so I could pretty much insert whatever I wanted into the story. I hope it will be enjoyable to play. It sure was to make.
The story and the Characters

I took a lot of stuff from sc2mapster assets, most notably;
- Tal'darim reskins/portraits for some units by Hammer107
- Terrain for Mission04 was made by DeltaCadimus
- Elders models from Alleyviper85AV Models
- The Ras'Gul model/portrait and the hero UI was extracted from the CybroX campaign "Wrath of the Tal'darim". Go check it out, It's amazing. This page is being currently updated. Come back later to see it completed!
How do I enter the maps with the launcher?
by the way, this is one of the best campaigns I've played so far :3
Very nice man! Thank you for your compaign
glad to see these maps are uploaded, but some of maps are broken due to melee updates like vanguard cost 275/100, Nexus cannot use Chrono, cannot build warp gate.
I'm happy to say the maps have been reuploaded. Couple of people asked me for them in the last few days so I searched for someone that still had them on their PCs (I had lost the files).
In reply to Forge_User_41358600:
im fairly new here, i was wondering if this campaign is marked as abandoned, does this mean that its not playable at all? I can launch the campaign via editor, but cannot open any map.
And the maps are back! Thanks IeZ!
Yeah, we want first 5 missions back! :)
Pleeeaaase. It's more than 2 years now, and it's much better to have not-ideal missions than nothing at all. :(
Okay, this thing with taking down missions to perfect them has to stop. Understand something: you're always your own harshest judge. People still want to play your frigging missions, you can just replace the files when you are done. If you worry about how your missions reflects on you, then worry instead about how taking them away entirely reflects on you.
What I'm saying is, add the damn missions back please.
hey ,it seems that missions 1 through 5 are missing from the files section.
Where are the other missions for me to download/?
On map 6, the researchable upgrade on tempest removes the passive disint buff ability. The passive is gone as soon as the research starts Loving it so far!
to clearify, how do i change my settings to play on the older patches?
Hello, i have seen videos about ur campaign and it seems awesome, but im new to custom campaigns and i dont know how to play on some of the older game patches, because you have to in order to play this campaign.
I'm enjoying the variety and map layout and design, it's great. One problem I've run into, however, is in mission 9. After a certain period of time, the game freezes in the second phase of the mission. I'm not sure what could be causing this. :(
Maps 1 through 6 coming back anytime soon?
Dahhhhm, I configured my editor on casual difficulty, and it was all right .
hi , I was glad you took up the project , with new missions :) but the new misssão 6 is a little hard for me . and missions 1-5 disappeared from download , I had already played , but wanted to play again. Keep up the good work!!!
I have to say I have been waiting for this one since March. I did get to see the screen shots on TLMA now Im HYPE just to open and see your work. Look forward to playing this map. Thank for your lovely super fun campaign.
I had to take them down to be updated. They'll be back asap in a couple of days. In the meantime you can check the JayborinoPlays commentary if you'd like on youtube.
Where are the first five maps located? They don't seem to be in the files section to download.
