Hi, here is some music and storyboard animation intro I created in Adobe After Effects for the 3rd title in a project called Soulwake, a 4-part saga. This intro is only to express the random ideas and vision I have collected for the storyline I want to develop and may change as the final intro. It is an Action Rpg that plays in the top down perspective with a strong emphasis on themes such as horror, medieval and celtic lore, romance, death, and science fiction. Hope you like it and please comment!

This is the chronicle of a band that survived the spell of a terrible witch who rose from the house of the dead. By fiery charm she ascends into power from the lost kingdom of Peppershire and rebellion is now broken asunder. These are the days of war now lit upon mankind. A great evil is approaching the Earth and dreadful beyond anything known.

The Crossing of the Black Witch is the transcendence into a realm of tainted smoke and wicked glass. Her wrath is conjured and pours unto a world to cast fear and slumber, but those brave will awaken to the shadows of a darker age... The gates of Nicothema. It is where dreams and death collide into a manifestation of strange magic.

In the mountains of Thantasia a candle is bursting to flame. This is the journey to save a king from the chains of a nightmare land. She is summoning an ancient weapon to trespass against a mystic land. A strange fortress of mystery that was hidden in the clouds. On this dawn, a quest is begun for its legendary key. Written on its walls is horror and a declaration of war from a kingdom forged in fire, metal and brimstone. A dark army of arcane sorcery and incredible machinery marching forward to deliver the judgement of death, but a champion is rising forth.

Though his physical body was unharmed, his mind was teleported into the nightmare land known as Nicothema. Now a shadow being of ether, wondering through a dream world inhabited by monsters and terrors. He searches for the Soulwaker and will gladly offer his services to anyone that can awaken him for his slumber.

Jayden - A vampire mercenary, over 700 years old, dwelling in the southern regions of Peppershire. He long ago withdrew himself into its shadows and wastelands but stories of his legendary battles live on even to this day. It is said that he was once a royal guard for the ancient and mighty kingdom of Sigonn until tragedy fell its inhabitants. He knows magic well and is incredibly strong because of the vampire that flows in his blood.

Katherine Peppershire - A mute from the land of Evven. Her awakening powers of magic on the Earth Plane are drawing the attention of the greatest forces of evil in the known Universe. She has learned to cast the spell of Sleep, A Dark Elemental that is forbidden to use upon man. She has broken this law.

However, 100 years ago, he discovered scrolls that were infused with the arcane magic of the Dark Elemental. They contained spells and knowledge left behind from the Pandora Empire that enticed his heart to pledge his allegiance to their cause. For 100 years he slept in an ancient chamber underground. After awakening, his song now holds the power to sap the lifeforce of the Earth as well as the blood of human flesh.

She can wield the power to command spirits and spells of wonder. It is believed she has crossed over from the legendary realm of Pandora and from the ashes of her wake she has risen The Glass Tower, a dark stronghold from which she begins her rule.

Image
Theo Galidor - A soldier in the army of the Black Witch that has been sent to inquire the realm of Earth. He is a shadow being of ether chained into metal and glass. From a distance he appears as a scarecrow, able to blend in with his surroundings in the countryside. He strays among the forests and country. He appears in the light of day from time to time as a scout, calculating the strength and wisdom of Earth in stealth before revealing himself. In the meantime, he charges his magical energy by absorbing the elements.

Demetri - A mystical beast known as the mighty cockatrice. It is the young but fierce serpent that is companion to Leo Gallidor. If it continues to grow it is a force that you should never cross alone.

Zanatos - The archaic spirit of a once noble king that passed long ago. He has been resurrected as the Golem and is sealed into an ancient relic of damnation left by the vampire known as the Apocalypse Armor. He is now a living weapon that haunts the southern regions of Peppershire that he once ruled, roaming among the vast wastelands and huge forests of Sigonn with sword at hand. His intentions are unclear as it appears his mind is still clouded and unstable. A strange anomaly that will surely unfold in this dark time.

It started off good but then it kept going. Like you went past the point of being cryptic and enigmatic.

It got boring and you weren't separating the concepts very well.
A Palace somewhere. A wizard in a tower. A fortress with an army. A Shadow portal.
The ideas all blend together. Like in reverse it sounds like
"Across a portal, in a shadowland, marches a legion army manifested by a sleeping demon, summoned by a wizard in a tower, that's part of a magic-machine palace fortress."
"Age of the Vampire" is just shoehorned in there before "A witch casting a spell on humanity you are ready for battle"
That last part seemed like a run on sentence because of the way it's presented. But it was at that point I realized this was suppose to be some kind of montage of separate things - and I had to go back and watch it again.

Maybe you should start by clarifying that this isn't one thing happening, but many obstacles to overcome. And more importantly, bring it all together by explaining why you're going to face them.
take this for example

Thanks for the critique, I have edited the dialogue, dropping and adding to blend the ideas better. I am trying to express the vision starting from the outlook of the player and progressing inward toward the heart of the evil I am describing. It seems to mesh smoother now, it was difficult because I had tons of ideas I wanted to share.
