(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!

Excellent

First off: So glad to see you back JB! For those of you youngin's who don't know Joseph Blanchette is a legend (lol) to the old school newgroundies.

This piece was excellent. Good timing. Clean lines and details. Funny acting with great actors...just an all around well designed/animated/directed flash and I can't wait to see more.

One thing I'd like to see improved on is the lag. I have a very fast computer and even then some of the tweens were choppy. It didn't kill the overall skit in any way...but ending lag would make this series perfect.

Chillin!

At first i thought it would be a kinda action and explosions stuff, but it came up to be very different from that hahaha, congratz! Very nice episode! Cant wait, as everybody, to see the next episode!

And the lich king appears to be so much like the lich king lol!


Toonwerks responds:

We want to have more action / tense moments in future flashes to cut down on a lot of the banter and rambling the characters do
