::ATTENTION!!:::

DO NOT vote poorly because of lag as the result of the detail I put into this.
There is a LAG FREE VIDEO version on youtube I encourage people to see (go to my website for details) if this version lags for them.

This animation and its second part have taken over a year and a half of FULL TIME work to complete. It's all a one man production so please vote accordingly, because in the end all that time in making this finale, has been utilized to make something as entertaining to you all as possible. ENJOY!!

Amazing

Not much to say here, but this is probably the most amazing submission I've seen on here. Something you should keep in mind though is sacrificing filesize to decrease lag. Cacheing filters as bitmaps doesn't really do anything, you're going to want to export the filtered movieclip as a png or prefferably jpg and then import it and tween it. Trust me, that decreases the lag at least 5 times over, and you've got a serious problem with lag, for example the backgrounds. Doing the method I suggested may raise the filesize a tad, but I think it's worth it. Just something to keep in mind, hopefully you read this ;)

Great movie, exceptional voice acting throughout.

Lovely

Wow, one thing i know that i just have to mention is that the voice acting in this flash is *Scans through memory* probably the best i have ever heard in any flash animation, heck its better than alot of commercial animation voice acting and beats the pants of 99% of video game voice acting.

The animation was abit skippy, but only compared to animations that arent done frame by frame, there was alot of detail in each frame so it defeats the not so smooth animation on a scale that leaves me to say that i'm highly impressed.

I loved how there wasn't actually alot of action in this on and rather focused on character development which you don't get alot of on newgrounds, and you executed it amazingly.

I've been following the paladin series since the beginning and i'm glad to say that what started out as what seemed to be an excuse for fantasy violence has turned out to be not an amazing storyline, but its there and its easy to see and it does leaveway for lots of fight scene's, so its all good.

I'm going to have to go over the old episodes all over again now since as far as i remember, the necromancer ruined the paladin's whole life, and thats reason enough to kill some one surely? However i get the feeling your building up to something with this so if part 2 turns out to be breathtaking by you taking this route then it will easily be forgiven.

Amazing stuff and if i lived in the us and had enough cash i would definately buy the dvd.

One for the road! Amazing voice acting.

just to let you know, when you said 'if i live in the US and had money i'd buy the dvd'

well i spent a lot of money making 2 versions of the dvd, a NTSC and PAL version, in otherwords, should work world wide. go to my website and check out the stroe, you'll see.

THANK you for the FANTASTIC review

Amazing as always

But, no reason to kill him? Common, he wiped out that whole village! My question is, why does the necromancer dude seem to WANT to be killed.
Now to the flash work, you did a great job on drawing and most of your shading was right on, just a few missed parts in the elevator seen i think. but meh, you get a 5/5 from me :)
