Those stained- glass styled pictured must be in the game!
They are great beautiful, give very medieval atmosphere that is not only fantastic but also mysterious. It would be great to see those in campaign and as in the menu. You can use them instead of some cinematics- cheaper and even better in terms of atmosphere! Spared money can be used for better Havens townscreen and Necro changes
Story is great, decisevely one of the better aspects of Ashan (hope main story will be same)
Yeah, the stained glass must be put at least as loading screens!
Think they would be cool to use in the puzzle map to find the Grail.
Actually, the stained glass did appear in and H5...
...and should be put again!
Such a great idea! I strongly agree with the fact that they should be loading screens, and I think that using them as cinematics is an interesting proposition. UBI-NOX READ US!
My very thoughts after seeing them myself.
Well they did say they had something special in mind with the MMHVII cutscenes, I'm actually guessing it'll be something of the sorts. Or they might be animated like in the cinematic showing the factions? =)
Agreed, it would be a shame to have seen them here, but when the game is released lose them
These stories are quite enjoyable reads, but a map that shows key location and movements would be really helpful!
That would be realy nice. But if I remember correct there was map in one of prevosious aricles
Yes, a map included in each of these lore entries would greatly increase the amount to which we can gain an understanding in the goings on they describe
Good blog! Here's a big tick
To approve its writer.
And I will give you a tick as well, good sir, to show my approval for your tick;DD
Gender of druids (or any creature) discussion are as pointless as having Conflux system in H6. There are better things to do and discuss about.
I think you are right...
Better examples to discuss...
Mummy instead Lamasu
Behemoth in Orcs Faction
More abilities in Units
Not recicled H6 Vampires
RMG in Vanilla H7
Edit and Ignore buttons in this Blog
I agree. I honestly don`t know why some people are still bothering to persuade the devs to change the genders back... They already decided, nothing will change their mind (at least they won`t rethink it with only a minority of people demandig it).
does it make me sad that the creatures have less skills and go away to guide for passive of proximity, this will suppose that all the creatures will always be together to help, will it be bored not???
I agree with you, especially with that thing about that the creatures have more skills. A sorrow that they have already said that they are going to have great less skills than in H3. I am sad for less skills
@Tokatsu I agree with all your issues except RMG. They've already said they don't have resources to make that in time as just getting proper map editor for vanilla launch isn't 100% sure. For me proper map editor is better choice of the two. I do hope to see RMG in expansion or DLC as they probably have planned it since beginning. Programming good RMG certainly takes a lot of work which would be away from elsewhere and getting excellent base-game should be the main priority.
Agreed. Developers will not redesign female creatures, JerimiahEmo wont stop beeing a sexist spamming troll regardless what other think and other people will not become sexist trolls because of what he thinks. Its called status quo.
So everyone should just drop this subject untill it can be sealed within a thread in a forum. Far away from us who just dont care.
@Duvi I do personally wish they made skills in h5 style so there can be great differences in the amount of abilities/skills between units/tiers/factions, but I realize they don't wanna do so much work(which is sad in itself). However the amount of skills is roughly the same as in h3 because unit-type isn't counted here. Surely you noticed that there aren't skills like shooter or flier here?
Ramborusina, I did not know they had already said this about RMG...
So, the best thing to do is...
Replace the "RMG in Vanilla H7" by "Better Townscreens" =D
I do not refer to the skills knob and to fly. I refer for example the squire of HAVEN in H5 tapeworm 5 skills
Well i still think it is bs that Ubi does not want them to give more time and resources. Ofcourse it is thier discussion, but i guess they just don't want to learn. Look at H3HD, this shows how much ppl are torn into 2 sides, those who want to do everything to support Ubi in the hope that they still save this franchise and the other side that just stops caring and sees that putting time in this game is useless and leaves.
It really is a good idea for Ubi to think this through.
discussion should be decission
WRONG, the look of the druid is just as important as the look of the lich or skeleton.
We shouldnt overlook units! All of them, need a proper look!
I'm more a Necropolis fan than a Sylvan fan but I agree with denisa.
What makes Vampires and Liches so important compared to Druids?
I personally prefer male druids.
How long till we get proper necropolis??
Just saying, we didnt forget! lol
Yes i think it is time to let us know what they are planning to do. This keeping silence is not really working, also it's nice and all that they trying to distract us. But soon it is weekend and then we have to wait even longer with chance of no reaction at all.
Mult si bine =))
If Stronghold this time around are wintry steppe orcs, this may end up being my favorite Heroes faction to date.
Also, I cannot agree more how refreshing it is to have a break from the Necro controversy. *sighs deeply in relief*
Everything can happen. And Orcs being Ice Demons would be really cool. :)
Yeah, Ice Giants, like Ymir from Marvel universe:
Or "Orcs Husky riders", something with sabertooths would look amazing too!
Or just think about how wonderfull would be to see wendigo like this:
Ofc, Wendigo, also will really nice fits Necro... ^^
ProfesoriusLT, I like your style! Sabertooths would be a killer mount. Plus, we saw their pelts in H6's Pao Islands, so clearly they're already in the canon--it's not much of a stretch to posit a fiercer, stockier mountain version that's been "tamed" by these orcs--and Old Norse frost giants as champions would fit perfectly with the orcs' tradition of existing in defiance of the mainstream dragon gods.
Yeah.. dragons... Dragons everywhere -_-''
it's getting boring a bit about that :P
And hopefully, they dont just carry over a previous stronghold faction line up but change it up and bring something new in to the game
Hah, good lore, indeed!
Looking forward to see Tieru and (especially) Giovanni (or, at least their mention)!
Это самая настоящая Санта-Барбара: Это же тот самый Джовани, который был в героях 5 и учил Орнеллу. Но, что самое интересное, что он является братом Лукреции из Героев 6, которая является двоюродной внучкой Сандро, который есть учителем Маркела, который был влюблен в Фиону, которая приходится сестрой Годрику, который есть отцом Фриды, которая стала королевой Империи Единорога и женой Дункана.
Ну да. Вселенная Меч и магия это уже настоящая Санта-Барбара, причём с перезапусками и новыми Мейсонами почти в каждом новом сезоне)
Да-да, той самой Фриды, которая приняла власть от Изабель, которая была невестой Николая, который был убит Аграилом, слугой Кха-Белеха, который является отцом Тёмного Мессии Сарета, который был влюблён в Зану, которая оказалась тем самым суккубом, которая когда-то сопровождала в своих путешествиях Кирилла Грифона, сына Вячеслава, которого воспитывала некромантка тётка Светлана, нашедшая Мать Намтару, которую когда-то пытался отравить Сандро, который стал причиной отравления ещё и Крэга Хака.
...Которого упоминала Изабель за несколько лет до того, как умер Джованни. Круг замкнулся.
Того самого Крэга Хака, которого пытался вылечить Каспар, сопровождавший Анастасию Грифон, сестру Антона Грифона, ставшего мужем императрицы Гвендолин, что сделало его прямым предком Ивана Грифона, другом которого был орк Кенте из клана Белого Копья, того самого, главой которого был сам Краал, друг Сандора Грифона, который спас из тюрьмы свою сестру Ирину, родившую наследника Герхарда Волка, который стал прямым предком Экхарда Волка, отца Илоны Волк, вышедшей замуж за Василия Грифона.
Того самого Василия, сыном которого стал Иван Грифон.
)))) вот ведь написал
В доме который построил Джон Ван Кане... или Эрван Ле Бре... - в доме который построил Джек :D
ВОТ ЭТО ПОВОРОТ .
Giovanni better be a playable character or I'll throw my turban at you.
I'll throw a yellow cap
I'll throw a... I'll throw my teeth!
Maybe Anastasya's companion...
Throw me better toku ;)
I said that once before, and I'll repeat it again, I love this expanded lore. And now I would really like to hear more about Black Guard, the last time they were mentioned, were way back(/forward) in Dark Messiah. Figures, if Arantir "inherited" them after Giovanni's final death?
The Black Guard is also in M&M X ¬¬
Indeed, i'd like to hear more about Black Guard and even more i would really like to them as natural creatures in game ^^
My god, this makes me HAVE to play that game.
I feel like I miss so much, too much, by playing only the HoMM games. I never played a game in the Might and Magic-series (but I'm focusing on getting X anytime soon), and kind of missed HoMM 1 and 2 too. Lore overlap, Succesion Wars anyone? Xeen? Varn? I only know those from H6 Gold. And music...so much recycled music.
I never played any of M&M titles also, I do love RPGs but not that kind, played some like Wizardry 8 but they could never entertain me.
Also we did notice and comment on the parallel between this civil war and the struggle between Archibald and Roland. They were brothers though.
Same here :D I don't really know how it happened that I haven't even tried any of M&M RPSs. But I plan to do it soon
I hadn't yet played newest M&M, but thanks for bringing that to my attention.
It would be really cool to have Black Guard as neutral unit, or Necro campaign only units.
Giovanni the vampire? Really? :D
The story so far is not that bad actually. Would have been great if with every article you would have presented an updated world map so we could better keep track of various conquests
Historia coraz bardziej wciąga.
Ahhh, the Council begins to assemble. I take it as preview of the Sylvan councillor is Tieru.
Thank you guys, been waiting for this, it's really good - more interesting than some books I've read:P
I think that the sylvan councillor will be Findan, and (maybe) he will tell a story where the protagonist is Tieru :P
Quite possible, but I would rather still remember Tieru as wise and ancient druid instead of roleplaying him in his youth...
Heh, Ice demons...
One of my favorite creatures in heroes saga!
I want to let the developers have made it as neutrals!
It would be nice to know more about them.
I want to see him in neutrals!))
Well i think it would be cool to have all elements as demon variant. Like fire demon, earth demon etc. Maybe they could make a story about it.
Am I the only one who thinks LightAvatarX is just another of Jeremiahs troll accounts ?
Yeah, you probably are.
No, he knows Russian
Of course,of course!
What's wrong with you and some other members!
I'm Chaosavatarx,sexyavataarx and now jeremiah emo!
What's the problem with you?
Heroes games aren't sherloch holmes games!
In some time you will tell that I am and jeremiah's mother and later ubi-nox!
@AvatarX, oh you're such a maverick, Mr. Ubi-Nox! ;)
And I am many members in this webiste...guess who! (I'm just kidding)
Sadly I forgot the password of LightAvatarX. I'll be posting only as Jeremiah and Pux123 in the future!
Leave this poor get alone. :P
Leave LightAvatar alone :<
He's nice, enthusiastic and writes poems :)
The only thing he has in common with JEmo is that he liked H5 druids (like many others I'm sure) and would want them back
Did you take my side or not?
I didn't understand from your comment!
Sry, It was typo - it should be guy not get. xD
Oh and I don't take any side. I'm neutral. :P
You know, taking someone's side is dangerous. :P
Thank you!You just won a place in my friend list in my biography!
You are poor and old!Your insults in your real life,get it?
Though the title next to my nick name says: "Furious". :P
Ur stupid lol, they dont even talk the same way! What a waste of a post! -_-
Now, I will punch you with my stuff. :P
or cane. :P
Just for the record, I was speaking about Jeremiah. lol
Conclusion: these characters should, and must, appear as playable heroes in the campaign.
