...not totally sure what you're trying to say, but I suggest you delete this thread and repost it, censoring out explicit words, into ****...you might want to take a look at the FAQ rules

...btw, if I understood you correctly, peasants are the basic unit...you can't very well have a world without a normal person can you?

peasants

peasants were actually pretty tough in heroes I.... when you grew so many of them eg. 500, and they hit a purple dragon...

as RMS already said...

...every game needs normal good-for-nothing people...

...of course there are a few uses for peasants:

* cannon fodder (any battle)
* skeletons (Necropolis)
* demons (Inferno)
* economy (Stronghold)

BTW: shouldn't this go to the Tavern or the Altar?

Oh there you go, blaming 3DO for the socioeconomic status of billions of people around the world.  3DO didn't make peasants, peasants are the product of an oppresive society in which might makes right, and basic human liberties are trampled upon, not the product of a game company that makes some truly delightful games.

Actually they are a product and a result of a change of subsistence modes from resource extraction (hunter-gatherers) to resource production (agriculture). The oppresion comes later with social stratification and a concentration of power in the hands of elites.

LOL Maxym

But actually there are one point in history where they where actually hailed as heroes. During the romantic period just after the Napoleonic Wars. Strange how the nobility suddenly had forgotten how they whiped out their entire class in France just 30 years before But hey, no matter what history says, they sure as hell deserved that. Damn I would have hated being a peasant in France during the previous centuries.
Perhaps thats the reason they are so bip in their heads these days. If NWG had made their peasants in AB after their rolemodel, they would have the ability to disrupt all ur movements during a turn if they choose to

All wrong

The peasant is a normal medieval man right? Kind of like you and me? So 3DO just want to show us how kick-ass all the other units are compared to a normal man.

This rationally, drath

Peasants are the necromancers' joy. They make wonderful liches. With the proper cloak and Isra, of course.

Actually "New World Computing is a division of the 3DO company". In this sense they are 3do's games.

To Vesuvius

Do you remember the map "Serf's Uprise"?

Man that was so tough trying to battle through all those peasants.

Just like real life, no matter how wimpy the people in it, a mob can take you down.

serf's uprise

Mocara, yes I remember that map  Would be nice to make blocking monsters for a closed map, that isnt level 6 or 7 monsters, but say zounds of level 1.  Would be a change.  Though it would be a great advantage to necro !
