(The movie is about 13.5 MB, so go get a snack while you wait for it to load if you have a slow connection.)

UPDATE THE THIRD: And thanks again for helping us get weekly 5th!
UPDATE THE 2ND: Thanks for putting us on the front page!
UPDATE: Thanks everyone for giving "Legends" the votes to get Daily First!

Some Legends speak of heroes... and some speak of... these guys.

The carefully laid plans of the "Cult of the Lich" go horribly awry, as the Lord of Death himself is summoned into the world after being trapped in a dark tome for thousands of years. Our two unlikely heroes, the bumbling wizard wanna-be Xiphon, and his height impaired companion Slinks, are exiled to a evil forest and begin their quest to right the wrongs they help caused... or to just get into more trouble.

"Legends of the Black Book - Part 1" is the debut effort by team Toonwerks... made up of three Flash old-timers Casey McDonald ("Xiphon"), Mark Schneider ("th1rt3en"), and Joseph Blanchette ("LegendaryFrog&quot ;). With the goal of delivering original and smart animations, each one of us play to our strengths to give the the best possible experience to the viewer. We hope you enjoy the first part of this multi part series, and urge you to give feedback so we can make improvements in the future!

Should have stayed with your original story

I liked the original better. Nice updated graphics though!

Toonwerks responds:

It's actually very close to the original, we moved a couple scenes around the make the flow better.

The only differences in overall plot involve things that hadn't happened in the original series yet

Mixed review

Very good redux. The animation was top notch (atleast until CS9 comes out) and the voice acting was fun. However where this falls flat on its face is the writing. C'mon, having someone shout, "I'm so frightened," is lazy. Don't assume the audience are morons, we know that being hung upside down by talking trees would make someone crap them self. (there is more, but that is just a prime example)

Anyway aside from parts where there was bad writing, the movie was very enjoyable, notably the exploding frog.

Toonwerks responds:

That's actually one of the major things i'm looking at is over saturating the viewer with what's going on.

I'm not sure if that line was originally scripted or not, but it got recorded in the voice file and we thought it was pretty funny, there's a few lines that are like that actually in the movie,

Either way, we're obviously working on improving on each project so I appreciate the input!

meh

The Animation, Sound, and Music was well done so kudos, but the voice acting and jokes weren't really there.

Chuckeled once or twice but didn't really feel it, hopefully you'll improve on it for pt 2.
