Thinking of changing the shaman to Neried(blue-haired sea nymphs). They would have the same abilities. What do you think??? Neried or Shaman? or other?

Joe, as you already have Nereid people, you should really consider replacing the Gorgons with Cannons, as you suggested

EDIT:

Possible names:
Falconet-Cannons
Light Cannons-Heavy Cannons
Cannons-Bombards (I think the name sounds too powerful, but that's just my opinion)
Cannon-Howitzer (perhaps)

Just noticed Blitz's sirens are called "Wave chanters"  Think Wave mistress might be too similar to his idea.(?) Will change it back to nereid charmer until I can think of something better.

The gorgons.  Well, they really do just look like bulls as in H3; just wanted to justify this diversion to the myth.  I went off the idea of a cannon because I wanted a tough melee troop.  Will definately consider your suggestions Oak - and thanks heaps for your input.  It is hard when you think about it so much to see it clearly sometimes (if that made sense...)

I am going away for a few days - no computer, so if you offer more ideas I am not ignoring them!!!

Thanks again Rldragon and Oakwarrior.

Back to wave mistress - blitz is now "tide".  I think I will change the gorgon to something a bit more interesting.  

Any ideas for a strong melee attacker?

Any other comments, suggestions...

Race:6(ý like pirates,but the thing they are on sea more than land makes them difficult to implent in game)

History:5(does not explain much a bit too short)

Creatures:8(nice line up strangely although ý dont like cannos it fits well here.The squid on the other hand how it travels on the land is complete mystery.Thats the problem with squids although they are perfect mytical creatures they are completely aquatic.

Balance:6(the 6th level seems a bit unbalancing but generally the line up seems fine)

Originality:8


total 33/50

Check out my castle ý would appriciate your opinions its name is Thundercrack.

Race: 6

Average, a pirate race wouldn't be viable IMO. From the portrayal, it has no stature, no kingdom, and a "Den" cannot be expected to be a worthy fortification against titans, dragons and the kind. It just doesn't have flavour.

History: 5

Pirates really can't be expected to have a history apart from plundering and raiding.

Creatures: 5

A gathering of sea creatures, ununited by anything solid. Plus a cannon.

Balance: 7

Pretty good, just a tad overpowered due to the spellcasting

Originality: 6

Nothing notable

TOTAL: 29

Den
Race(4 +4 )=8
History( 3+3 )=5 (minus one for incompleteness)
Creatures(4 +1 )=5 Nereids are cool but why are these nonviolent creatures helping pirates? Just because of that one dude?
sea wyverns seem out of place somehow, wait…what was I thinking?  Cannons seem out of place some how
Balance(3 +4 )=7 melee attack displacement…cool.  The rest are…yawn…
Originality=7

I like the basic idea of this.
With some major tweaking I can easily see this as another faction in HOMM5.

(minus one for no flag)
Total Score=31  

How I graded these:
Race (Originality [1-5]+Compatibility with HOMM5 universe[1-5])
History (How interesting is it to me [1-5] +Compatibility with HOMM5 universe [1-5])
Creatures (Originality [1-5] +Internal Consistency [1-5])
Balance  (are the special skills inventive [1-5] + Does it have a variety of flyers, shooters, walkers, spell-casters [1-5]
Originality (all the originality scores added up and divided by two.  This means that creativity counts twice. [1-10])

29 to go

Judge rating: 30 or lower.
This entry is a good idea, but needs more depth and detail, especially in history.
The creature lineup also needs more planning, background and balancing.
