Orginalityx1.2(maybe should be included to castle)
Shouldn't be this high. In fact, could even be replaced by `suitability` or whatever, i.e. how well it would fit into HoMM5. At the moment I guess this bit is part of "castle".


agree with you but see orginality not the way the majority sees it in this forum.Their point of orginality is  "never done before" concept for me old creatures or ideas that are revised and fitted into the castle is also original.
Like the change of side of rock from heroes 2 wizards to barbarians was good and original or the replacement of grifins from warlock to knight in heroes 3 was original since they gave it a new concept to the creature.It became "noble" from "fericious".
I gave my points to "originals" which had that spark of creativity whether they used old or new.If we were going to rate originality by that way some revive attempts of old castles and creatures would surely have low points.Just look at the new inferno there a lot of old creatures but can we say that ts the old pitfiend or nigtmare?Also some creatures have to stay classic like the three head attacker cerberi or unlimited retaliaon efreet or spell immune black dragon.

have usually expressed that suitability in "Castle" part of the rating.

Yes this is what originality should be I guess. It seems the best final category combines suitability and some 'personal touches' to add a little originality. Perhaps then 1.2 is okay.

P.S. why do your `I`s show as ``s?

Remember that there's two ways to rate proposals? One is give 0-10 score and another is using five-aspects scores for maximum 50. So, actually we can use any weighting we like, and then normalize the score to base 10.

We can, but no one has as far as I am aware (not that I've been checking) - i.e. no one has given 9, 8, 7, 6, 5 and then added them up to something other than 35. Correct me if I'm wrong. The ratings should have been decided on before people scored the factions. The slightly simpler alternative is to say, vote out of 16 for creatures, 14 for race, 6 for history etc and then add them up as usual to create a score out of 50.

Actually they are special chracters from Turkish we have two differen characters one "i" and"".Although Turkish uses latin alphabet(only minor changes) its an language tree itself(like the latin) so we had to modify some of the characters during the Turkish revolution back in 1923.Sometimes I make mistakes and use "" instead of "i" while writing English.

I hope that satisfies your question
