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!

meh

the animation and overall story is really awesome. i like the idea and it could definitely be a series.... BUT! it really isnt that funny... the voice acting is kinda bad and the jokes are maybe funny for a younger crowd. so the age rating is suiting for this in terms of who will like it. 13 year olds. but with bad things said it was enjoyable and I would like to see more! i feel like a jerk but hey.. just saying...

Response by Casey(Xiphon):

I'll admit personally that some of the voice acting didn't quite land as well as I'd hoped, especially on my end with some of the static, but it's something we're Improving all around. We knew our first project wouldn't be perfect.

As for humor, though we may do some more adult stuff in the future, we're aiming to stay friendly towards a whole audience. Plus personally as the writer, I don't like going out of my way or breaking characters just for the sake of having adult humor

Audio is digital clipping

Check the audio levels so it doesn't clip and make the staticy sound. Other than that great job!

Although I diddn't find it humorous

This movie covered quite a bit of what you guys were aiming for, you managed to use a lot of originality and the movie itself was quite entertaining.

Good lord...

Those trees that babble on remind me of those chaps outside a pub I saw on my vacation in London.

I swear, all you have to do to keep the conversation going with them is mostly listen, say an occasional "yes" or "no", and tell them what you think about the given subject. Simple.
