(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!

Great Stuff

Some of the animation was fantastic, well done!


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars


it wasn't bad, but JB has created and been a part of far better animations than this.
Bonus points for the 'proper tree', in all it's Firth-esque glory.

It was kind of funnier when it was a WoW parody

still funny though....

Really needs work on the sound!

Good voice acting ... but the freakin' volume of the voicing is way too high, it severely overpowers the background/setting sounds... it makes it very un-enjoyable when you have to turn the sound down so much.

Otherwise, good work... looking forward to the new episodes.

Good animation, ok story and i laughed a few times over all fun to watch also the whiney dude looks like a gnome from WoW just saying

Toonwerks responds:

The movie was actually a remake of Casey's old WoW movie "Shadows of Azeroth." When we decided to redo it, we took out all of the WoW references. But we liked Slink's look to much, so he still looks kinda gnomey.
