Ah, it brings me back...

Disciples franchise, especially the second part, are TBS games that I treat as second only to HoMM franchise. Great atmosphere, interesting unit/leader progress system and nice setting in a dark fantasy world where 4 core factions (and later added Elves) fight in the name of their gods. While basic army builds were pretty similair, later you could build customized armies (you even could make an all-ranged build, or all-mage build), and each faction had some special characteristic abilities. Human "Empire" had healing and ressurection while Dwarves (Mountain Clans) boosted their strength. Undead were about lifeasteal, poison/paralyze and physical immunity, and Demons fire and polymorph (of course there were more distinctions). The game has some really cool & uniqe unit designs and incredible sound. It had some balancing issues, but it was super-fun nevertheless, even if a bit repetetive over time.

Unfortunately they blew it with the third entry because an underbudgeted company took it over, and they released a buggy mess. Even after it was re-released with enchancments (it was called Reincarnation) it still was bad and didn't turn profit, especially beacause fans were especially dissapointed with it (and it was still a niche franchise). Boring as hell, overly stretched (completing even one map took what seemed to be an eternity, not to mention how long it took to upgrade your units) and they took the games's best element: "static" (units stayed in place and only exchanged blows, but it's deeper then you might think) battles in favor of a HoMM-like hex system. It was also lacking one of it's four core factions- Mountain Clans (Undead were added in an expansion). They wanted to make an expansion with MC but it didn't go well and it was scrapped. I belive some fans even tried to back it up but with no avail, while the company bankrupted, burying the franchise in the ravages of time. It's actually even more of a tragic story then with Ubi taking over M&M...

Check out my super Disciples 2 town builder right in your browser =)
It wasn't hard to make because almost all png files were made properly for this case.

If HOMM (any part) stores building images like D2 images then we can make HOMM town builder.
