(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!



Rated 5 / 5 stars

i loved it :D

it was excellent i liked it . job well done sir.
looks like a good series if it was perhaps planned for multiple parts you could try and get on a site like the escapists this style of animation would be very welcomed there.

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Legendary Frog's queeky voice drives me insane.

See above.

Not bad stuff. Enjoyed some parts. Less of LegendaryFrog's voice is a GOOD thing.

Toonwerks responds:

I toned it down a bit. My voice is much more squeaky in person.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

The second I saw Xiphon, I knew for sure.

Great remake of the original flash.
When it's less Warcraft-based, there's more room for actual dialogue and cynicism.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Hmmmm 4 years later.

I did love this movie for the nastalgia purposes alone. It's great that you guys redid Shadows of Azeroth from 2006, but to me it is just a revamp, and being a WoW player (seeing the original was based on that) I do enjoy new content. I await the second episode with open arms. I only gave you an 8 because it was just a remake and I loved the original. Just gimme something new and refreshing next time and I am sure you will win more people over, including myself.
Also, great to see you back Mr Frog.

Toonwerks responds:

Yeah, we had to remake this one if the rest of the series were to make sense,
the original series involved way to much and there's no way it would ever have been finished anway, and looking back, the way the story played out wasn't that great anyway. Trust me, the masses weren't missing a whole lot.
