I agree whit you to 95% TDL. Acardemy isn't race based, its based on those who rules over the units and live in the cities (human mages). Therfore it is bad to take out the prue warlockish faction, and replease them whit Dark-eleves. I also think that it is boring to choose wizards over alcemists. (Alchemists would be mutch cooler)
Btw, Mages is unts, so the wizards are not only commanders. (if you consider mages and wizards as the same thing)

TDL

I agree that academy is not race based but if it was then there would be spellcasters on almost every level in there. "A bit" overpowered don't you think? And besides Academy was always multi-"race"(gargoyles are not race neither are golems, titans maybe are a race). Either ways theese creatures are linked with themselves by magic so they are not that mixed.

And about my contest entry...
I made one but only for example. It is in Should Fortress be Back on page 7 i think. It is only creature line up. I think that i could make a It better and put it into contest but i am too lazy to make history of this race. I would have to make it less strong, add more descripcion of creatures and make symbols. But there is one thing in it that is good, it is race based and because of it it fits better to HoMM V world. Thank you for proposition .

I see the `race` as constructed units here (3 of those - like 3 elves in sylvan for example, not counting Pixie).

BTW I suggest not to use those 2 creatures:

1. Gorgon [unless you mean medusa] - creature like that does not exist, it is just another name for medusa.
2. Gnoll - they are not jungle or swamp creatures. Gnoll resembles a cross between a man and a hyena and fits into Stronghold, which is more desert based.

But it is just a hint


1: I also belived that, before some member here gived me evidence frome vikipedia that gorgons acuualy are some reptilian bulls frome Persian mytology.


I always thought the same thing.  No matter how much I've looked I've always found the term "gorgons" referring to Medusa and her sisters.  It has always annoyed me that these creatures in HOMM were called "Medusas" when "Medusa" was not a name for a creature but actually some person/creature's proper name.  After I read your post I went and checked wikipedia and all I found under "gorgon" that did not pertain to Medusa and her sisters was this...

"In Dungeons and Dragons, from which many games like Heroes of Might and Magic and Castlevania take inspiration, Gorgons are giant bulls with iron-like hides that have a petrifying breath. "

Nothing else I saw referred to bull like creatures.  And this quote was way at the bottom under "modern culture".  Wikipedia is a great source of info but they do include a lot of references from video games which have a tendency to make up their own history/info.  

Anyways, back on topic.  In this create a new Fortress contest are we looking for entry's that are similar to the HOMM3 Fortress or are you accepting any under the title Fortress?

Presumably the competition is between factions like the H3 Fortress.

Thank you.

What I was trying to get clarification on is that I have an idea for a town that I wanted to use the Fortress name for and the Aztec/Mayan style of their main building minus the swamp.  However my creature line up has nothing to do with the old H3 Fortress creatures.  So I was wondering if I could submit my idea and it be judge evenly, or will I be faced with, "Your town doesn't have any Basilisks, Lizard-men, Wyrvens, Dragon Flies, etc.!!!  This is the worst Fortress suggestion!!!!111!!!" ?  I just want to be clear on the criteria so I don't waste my and all of your's time if you want basically same town that was in H3.

Crashnburn:

I think that when we think about fortress we mean swamp/jungle town, creatures are less important. Most of us put lizardmen, basilisks and so on because we got used to h3 fortress + that creatures suit that theme.

You can do different creatures and call it fortress as long as it is swamp/jungle town.

BTW I hope that we can do later ICTC second edition or other unofficial create town contest, where we could post all types of towns [I would like to make winter town and mechanical one].

Where's Godstuffus?  I think he had a lot of potential for his swamp/lizard town...

Anyway if you need an outside judge to look at the entries I can do that.  Since I was biased towards history and original creatures in the first contest I can tone that down if you want.  You just have to be really specific about how you want me to grade.

I am in and out
I am in because will support and critisie every castle but will not build a town of my own so I am out at that part.I strongly support this competition.

About the race base thing.You are talking as if the castle must base on a dominant race but feel the theme of the castle could be also 7th level worshipping underlings too.Like lizardmen worshiping a swampthing and giving it daily sacrifice.So encourage to be more free.f its reasonable and has a logic behind it why not?

I didn't said that there should be only one race. I said that there should be one race plus some beasts, slaves or something but you should make one strong race and not 7 different races. Good examlpe is dungeon. There are 3 units of one race 1 unit of that race on a beast and 3 beasts.

blood faction

I think everyone has seen the faction idea I had for the ICTC.  If anyone wants to tweak it go ahead.  Stories, change creatures, or whatever.  I really have not had time for while.  I have not even tried the game.

I would like to make a suggestion though.  I think it would be better to take each creature, the history, the town, and the heroes abilities and let people rate them.  Then combine them into what the majority of the community would like from each.  Now I know ideas will clash but I think that is what is the problem with most of the town proposals great idea here or great idea there, but not complete.  The clashes will just have to be worked out somehow, and then maybe put up for a vote on suggestions.

I would just like to know some feedback on ideas for my proposal.  The  biggest things that I think are good about the proposal I made were lizardmen race faction, sacrifice ability, aztec/mayan style town, and the leviathan.

Anyway if anyone is interested I am willing to throw more ideas.  Or if you like my idea that much but think it needs some changes go ahead.  I don't think this will get much attention until we maximize all of our ideas.  Sort of like a community town proposal project. If anyone is interested in such nonsense.

Collecting info for my town and found that:

Christine Fitzgerald, a confidante of Diana, Princess of Wales, claims that Diana told her that the Royal Family were Reptilian aliens, and that they could shapeshift. David Icke and others have claimed that U.S. President George W. Bush and his family are part of this same bloodline.


Well, he was right about Epstein though... maybe it's that thing "even a broken clock is right twice a day"
