Strongly waiting for Uncorn empire!
1) the story will finally push forward and we will know future events
2) unicorn in Haven would suit, would provide magic and proper atmosphere in the lineup
3) unicorn would be fine mounts for knights
4) blue- white colours like the most, resemble kingdom of Erathia
5) hope that thouse pauldrons and unocorn-styled armour elements would not appear, they look awful!
6) hope for new partition of Empire and new interesting duchies (Dragon Duchy!) :D
Didn't Isabel abdicate in favour of Freyda at the end of TotE? And Freyda is from Unicorn Duchy :D
I tihnk that there WILL be Unicorn empire. After H5, Freyda from Unicorns became the empress.
exactly! but suprisingly it was long time ago.... really waiting for those new events! not that do not like new stories (Ivan seems to be most interesting campaign hero since Realag- Sandro and Crag not counting here)
But then the champions will become more powerful than the angels ;(
Me too. As far as prequels are always welcome, I would appreciate if they took one ending of the Dark Messiah as canon and made a sequel of H5.
On a side note, I do think unicorn-head-shaped-pauldrons are pretty cool ;P
besides, I was always both curious and impressive about the lenght of Ashan story when compared to old world:
In hoMM 1 we have Lord Ironfist as main hero, in hoMM 2 story occurs around his sons (Roland and Archibald), in HoMM 3- Catherine and Roland, HoMM 4- several years after world destruction, there are descendandts of Gryphonheart dynasty (Lyssander). M&M 6-9 take place in the very same time- it is mentioned that in New world son of Roland and Catherine survived- and even Archibald could.
ummm you do know that H7 event is before H5 in the timeline, so, the story of Freyda will have to wait, maybe H8? When they finally decided to move the timeline AFTER Isabel's war? that is interesting, because:
- if Sar Elam's prophecy is to be believed then it means how the world ends
- Sareth already release the doomsday by giving the Skull of Shadow to Kha-Beleth
- I think Kha-Beleth is Sar-Elam himself, well a quick speculation
somewhat in Ashan there are not that many twists and nth changes that quickly, on the other hand- I miss simple continuation of events that was present in older Heroes and M&M games
That would be an interesting twist. Although I suppose it would explain his sudden appearance and rapid ramp up in power to the point of unifying all demons, mostly, in the span of, what? A few hundred years? Too lazy to look at the timeline right now.
Interesting idea... I hope, that we will see some neutral creatures associated to the different duchies... Maybe we see the way the unicorns find their way from haven to the sylvan fraction...
Human knights cannot ride unicorn, but it could be horses with horned helmet.
Yes, I wonder what the unicorn empire will looks like !
It will probably look awesome, but some parts will be completely destroyed by Biara. Wonder if they will take a Witcher approach and show us some poor cities touched by hunger during Biara's Wars.
Why humans can't ride on unicorns? I do not understand this... Maybe they are so rare? How ever: A real unicorn is better than an horned helm...
It is said that elves already find horrible that human use unicorn as symbol... if they ride them when most of elves cannot, it would be war. XD
Would they really break an Ancient Alliance because of a single knight riding a unicorn? ;-;
This sounds like the stuff of a great story... With many unicorns... (smile)
Unicorns (they were often seen as a symbol of purity) may not allow humans to ride them because humans are hardly pure creatures;P
Unicorn are sacred creatures... no I really don't think there will be unicorn riders in haven... not even simple unicorns.
Bullshit, the Holy Empire knights are the purest of the pure. Even unicorns seem unworthy compared to them :3 That's why H6 knights rode some shiny things instead of horses ;P
Of course you're right, they don't like humans... I'm only searching for a way to see the unicorns as neutral creatures back in Heroes VII...
Neutral creatures could still be link to a faction, like in H4. So why not neutral unicorn, snake, phoenix, etc... as elven neutral ?^^
Hahah, yeah, maybe, but the Sun Riders went extinct. I do not exactly know how to understand that - were they not humans? That would explain a lot while also support my thesis;P
@ptrc: In an effort to defeat the competing duchies, the humans forfeit a piece of their connection to the god of light... Maybe that is a reason the Sun Riders disappear... (just maybe...)
That's something I faintly still hope. Other units, neutral as they may, under a certain faction relation, such as these you mentioned, and other additional ones.
Never thought about, but yes i believe you are right, they would make a great addition to haven
Today is the...I am not sure how it is in english...carnival day?Also I am not sure if there is this traddition in all countries...
Anyway,I was thinking to everyone would change his/her avatar to the excactly opposite one faction!
And maybe different gender...
I liked it
Well from snake to dwarf... Fortress is my second favorite anyway...
And nice avatar light!
I tired yellow hat ///
Here in my country, Carnaval will be this next week. There's a big party people go in the street. Men clothed as women (too much for JeremiahEmo's heart), in a party called Bloco dos Sujos. It's rather fun, although I don't enjoy much as some of my friends do. Carnaval in Brazil is quite popular, but, alike football, a great deal of Brazilians are not fussed about it.
Damn you LightAvatar! :D
I was considering changing mine to this sexy face you've chosen :< And you beat me to it.
I do not like the alliance faction / Anton -Beautiful man )
Good idea. Done!
I'll bite... even if I did change my avatar recently...
In my country we have Fat Thuesday today - we eat dozen of donuts. :P
Give us big donuts!
Yeah, your bony face truly look fat.
See donut diet is the best diet. :P
Guys,guys I have with a lot of difference the best costume xP
I bought it yesterday in Astron!It had 40%!My favourite ashan's shop...
Just look at my mask!It'so beautifulll xP
Give us all the hashtags!
Hm...liked it! Sounds almost like BLAH!
I bought this mask because it suits my ... er ... lack of hair.
A one-day avatar change to celebrate the feast of Carnival? Well, why not!
Tomorrow I will be Kilburn again, but until then...
Yrris all the way, a handsome Dark Elf girl with blood-red hair. Such a beauty, and yet so dangerous. Oh, the memories.
It's a girl? I could never tell :D
//Didn't play shades of purple so have no idea who that is :)
Marblethrone )) With Antonio were also uneasy memories ))))
@ Chiasa )
This girl Iris -Beautiful and clever dark Elf H6
Hmm... maybe I should try it then :)
@Chiasa: Well, it's quite obvious, isn't it? Her face, eyes, hair...especially compared to the other Dark Elf heroes we can select as our avatar. Go, play (50) Shades of Darkness, you will enjoy it (and get further proof that Yrris is a she xD)
@Mirash: Antonio? Should I know this guy?
Ok, I believe you :3 But honestly I was never sure about her gender. All elves have slender faces, are beautiful (well, most of them) and men could have long hair as well. So I was confused whether it's a woman or a really pretty man :D
I think Mirash meant Anton
went into the kitchen ... all thanks //// Jeremiah hi )) \ And Iris -elf Pts beautiful! \
Nice idea to include explaining maps.
when will we expect more portals to be opened, like Game World or Community? Or even have a peek at the Stronghold units?
avatars and more when? sorry
would also add all those promised interviews, update of fan fiction, some statement about planned action on the website (if it is possible to expand number of letters, add forum and all those stuff- we really need that cause in comments there is too big mess cause of lack of those)
"Know also that what I'm about to reveal is something that can never leave this Shadow Council."
*After a long, tiring day I leave the Council Halls and head for the local tavern. There, I order the usual and after a few well-earned mugs of fresh apple juice I lean onto the counter, facing the bartender, and say:*
"You NEVER guess what I just heard today. It's amaaazing, I tell you...here, let me...repeat it to you." *All present in the tavern get closer to me as I start telling*....
Nooooooo!!! We have a traitor!!! D:
Probably about a half of the council will be in the tavern so the bartender will be the only one to hear anything new.
@Tito_Reni: I knew I should never have fallen in love with that Dark Elf girl...bad company, I tell you. Very bad. You learn things you come to regret later on. Still, at least they don't start shooting at you if you try to carve your name in a tree, much unlike their Sylvan brethren.
But I go to a special tavern. If all of the Council goes to the same place it's as busy and crowded as it is here in these halls.
Your name sounds like 'I was not so sure' for some reason :|....
I was not so sure about what you have said about my name.
Excellent chapter, the ilustrations really help to follow the whole war and the different battles.
Now hoping for a Sandro appereance!
I woundn't be surprised if the mastermind of the whole Seamus's plan was our little Nethermancer...
Besides that, the graphic for that entry is just wonderful!
Hmm.. maybe, but that's getting old... just hope they come with something new
Did anyone else notice that Tieru is wearing a dead animal's corpse on his head? I thought the elves were respectful of nature. Apparently chopping off a deer's head and using it as a fashion statement is not against nature...
Maybe it's worthless unit that gets killed by the dozen so you got lots of "hats" available? ;P
The fashion already existed in H5 ^^ And maybe he didn't kill it. Maybe it just grew old and die. Or perhaps it was his old companion who died, and he decided to wear him out of respect :D
Sylvan elves are tree-lovers, not animal-lovers. There's a difference.
You mean, it was his "deer" friend? :-O
I agree, never liked the H5 druid much. Both because of the cartoony look, which the whole game sufferd from, but also because of the whole head as a hat idea. The H7 artwork looks better, where the antlers are made more as a crown and the deer face have been removed.
I think that Hannibal Lecter would approve such a marvelous hat- perfect outfit for official meetings, dates with the true love and holidays with family!
sorry, I could not resist :P
@Igelkolnikov : Yep ;) he still remembers the wild times they had together...
'This Falcon would nevr fly.'
Man, this could be such a beautiful metaphor...
Neke ptice nikad nepolete.Ceo zivot cekaju na tooo..
Nice story, approved!
Oh, no, they corrupted you too. *looking hopelessly around*
He only stated that he likes the background history so far. That doesn´t mean that he´s passed to the dark side so don´t get paranoic (we already have got enough).
Bah, not everything is in gameplay techniques.
*siting against a wall while hugging knees, crying quietly*
Yeeah, you where righ.
I guess no news today and academy magic heroes tomorrow.
I need some blood. Blah!
Hmm i think you have to wait atleast 6 hours to be sure. But i rather have less articles and have them better quality.
I'd rather get articles about game mechanics and their ideas on them. I don't wanna end up with them saying this is how we decided was best, too late to change anything.
Articles like hero-classes explain very little when the skills aren't explained to us. Abilities for creatures would be nice to see or have explained(for example area/radius). Articles about lore or heroes are of very little interest to me personally as I (hopefully) get all that in game, they just feel fillers here to me :S
@ramborusina, +1 I really anticipate skill system. Totally important thing.
I think it's too early for this Sempai.
I was looking forward to promised gameplay video.
@JedynyHex, why? Game mechanic should be designed from the very beginning I suppose. That's the core of the game.
Yeah maybe the vid will give us more information. But i am afraid the vid is going to be a showoff about what they did with the graphics and models, and not about gameplay and game mechanics. But well see...
Actually, game mechanics should have been presented first, given that it's really something they won't be able to change later as 'easy' as some couple of artworks; and because that all the fun and purpose of playing is all about.
But again, they chose to sell a dumbed down idea so far. I'm smelling H6 all over again.
@Sussugamon, ye. Same thoughts.
PRECISELY! You'll have flashes, glimpses of things we want to know how to work, and no explanation. Many of the answered stuff from those Q&A might be then shown, but those questions that they couldn't answer at that time (all those regarding what really matters such as mechanics) will remain in the dark.
It's going to be a let down. Alas!, here we are, grouped together, singing songs, expecting the inevitable.
It would be a shame if someone mistook TIeru for a Stag officer and shot him.
Or a deer.
Oh deer god !
That deer cap is very deer to him, I see.
Oh well, he's in H5 so nobody did actually shoot him. But still, what if....
Hmm think the joke would have been funnier if you added sherrif instead of officer.
Props for the deer jokes guys. With all these deeranged gender discussions you've lightened up the mood here! XD
Shot him? Will there be the Forge now?
You can also shoot people with a crossbow, or a normal longbow for that matter.
Instead Tieru would shot him - in a self-defence :) =>
*** SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT ***
I am beginning a community faction: Users Against Galaadlehaut! #UAG
- We are opposed to Galaadlehaut's actions that bring NOTHING to this community website.
- We are opposed to Galaadlehaut's disregard for the rest of the community which he views is beneath him (Hence why he's happy to troll users' posts with dribble).
- We strive to show Galaadlehaut that although he is level 30, he is NOT the ultimate authority on EVERY topic like he thinks.
- We strive to show Galaadlehaut how to conduct himself with respect to ALL users at ALL times and not when he sees fit.
UAG - Users Against Galaadlehaut!
Erwan leBreton ... please stop creating this fake accounts and being mad at Galaad ! He only speak the truth about you... now cool down.
Please, not this again and not Erwan leBreton again. The worst thing is encourage the rage. And both comments do it so stop it.
Really? Can't you just ignore him? I know you can't like everyone, but this is ridiculous. Look i know some ppl have gone a bit too far, but that is no reason to do things like this.
FIRE GRIFFIN KING!!!
FIRE GRIFFIN KING!!!
FIRE GRIFFIN KING!!!
Community faction, eh?
I just hope your town screen won't suck that much.
So sad that ppl even upvote this.
Beware of unnecessary suffering
So when will we have an ignore button?
It's so sad that GalaadleHaut has pushed people to do this.
Why is that so? He isn't even that active as before. Also just because he is really active and states his opinion (sometimes trough spamming) is still no reason to do something like this. And ive only seen GriffinKind saying things about how he hates Galaad, so there is clearly something about that needs to be checked if he has so much trouble with this. The same with the ppl that upvote this. And you ppl claim that you are for free speech.
Although I do not agree on everything with him, he is one of the few who really care about the game. I would say more iritating are ass kissing people like LigtAvatarX posting quizes all over place who in fact dont care about the game at all. They will probably pirate the game play it once or two times and delete. Advises of such people should not be taken into account at all. Overall I think kids input is somewhat less important as kids change mind in matter of seconds and are easily impressed
And I almost forgot ... NO I do not support your cause.
A fine read, also explains why is Wolf Duchy allied with Ivan :)
Also, nice illustrations ^^
Where's my popcorn?
The spiders eated it.
B-but, but... ;_;
No! It´s Sandro disguised as a spider!
Show them the necro townscreen and they give it back.
Sandro, you spider you....
How an I to enjoy JEmo/Esther dialogue now :<
Sandro is a male Namtaru, spawn of a cross between a spider and David Copperfield and death. That's why he can do all these things he does.
Sounds legit! :)
2 Jeremiah -ban
3 Everything will be fine, cheers heroes!
Druids are female, that's inevitabe, all should deal with that. Jeremiah included.
No one should be banned, and no one should request banishment of fellow Councillors. Jeremiah, despite his strong opinion and, shall we say, commanding presence and of course his quirks, does provide us with something to do. I do not share his opinion, nor do I justify spamming (by anyone, not just him), but I can say that people are being moved about by him. It's never quiet when that woodland sprite shows up.
Marblethrone when--)-- is a joke ))
Feedeng Jeremiah make fun, if there is nothing else happenning.
I must admit he does shake up things once in a while...
I vote for male druids. easy. :)
thank you for calling me woodland but the second title should either be hunter or druid.
But druids are female :P
ELVES are female. Anyone has seem ever a male elf?
Maybe there will be a villian in the sylvan campaign, named Jehrimu, that fights to purge the faction from female druids. He gets handilly defeated ofc, by many many female druids who sends his corpse to Anastasia. She then resurrects him as an servant ghoul to obey her commands for all eternity. One can always dream!
actually no. They're just gender-bended to please the feminists.
As if brain-dead female druids can defeat the almighty Jehrimu. If he'll be defeated by them, it's because the legendary Tieru, coupled with the strategic genius of Findan and Talanar are helping them. Yeah, it takes 3 legends to beat the mighty Jehrimu. :)
Yeah, we already know it. You always return as the terminator.
Lol, he's so amusing sometimes
