(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!

havent explained the story line

The visuals are great, voices fit nicely, but kind of confused as to what the plot of the story is.. keep up the good work and hurry up!!! 13.5mb isn't to big so i wasn't expecting it to look that great, but man was i surprised

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.

This is great.

The only thing I have to ask is this:

PLEASE tell me that someone actually recorded that burp. Because that was great.


Toonwerks responds:

The burp sound effect was found on the Free Sound Project website. As far as we can tell it's real, just not our burp unfortunately.

I've seen this before...

I've seen this before somewhere. Oh wait, it was Newgrounds years ago. Wtf was this, a resubmission? Last time you guys put this in it also got front page, and you promised a series, and didn't deliver.


Toonwerks responds:

Yes, this is a reboot of an old Flash by Xiphon called "Shadows of Azeroth" (we've hidden a link to it in the menu screens of the movie, but you can just go click on his other submissions dropdown). He was working on part 2 of that Flash years ago when he lost his work in a computer crash. So we decided to gut that movie of all the WoW references and team up to make sure we get through the whole series.
