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!

It is Outspoken for it self o:

This is a well thought animation.
Looking forward to the next.
It made me laugh and was quite entertaining.
The Gnome had a funny voice and it fits his personality and the way he acts!
Well done! Good voice acting as well!
It makes me wonder how brilliant flash artists get ideas like this.


Toonwerks responds:

Casey(Xiphon):

it takes a long time,

usually things will spark from something small and I'll just continue to keep having ideas.

I can definitely see this becoming a huge series.

This was quite entertaining. Very nice production values, especially the animation and art style. LegendaryFrog, your art skills have come a long way since the old Lillipad days and what not. Some of the voice acting could use some work, but otherwise, I look foward to more!

Nice to see something original on Newgrounds that's NOT a video game parody or a stick figure brawl.

I kinda liked it

The story and artwork were good, however the voices on some of the characters were annoying.
