Vote for the names of creatures and dwellings you would like to see to changed Baklava. No one has started on the Hero yet which I think should be the next phase of what we should do. I think the creature line up and dwellings is almost done.

Yeah we did some hero bios, but we need abilities, racial skills and specializations. Does anyone agree with the following change:

Lizardman Prowler
The Lizardmen were one of the many creatures created by the Wizards as a replacement for the Orcs. Human subjects were infused with dragon blood but the results were not up to par with expectation of the First Council as they were deemed to be physically weak and not fit for the rigors of frontline combat. The entire stock of lizardmen were then taken and dumped in the swamps of Hashima to fend for themselves. Instead of perishing, the Lizardmen thrived. Their gentiec makeup provided them with keen eyesights and heightened agility, allowing them to successfully hunt and trap all forms of swamp life for their own sustance. Skilled in the use of crudely made blowpipes which fire bolts carved out of bones of the creatures they capture, the lizardmen coat these darts with highly corrosive saliva which can penetrate the thickest of hides with ease.

I'm reposting Hydromancy for those of you who are not familiar with it. It is my suggestion for the Racial Skill of the Nagas:

HYDROMANCY. What happens is this. The Sorceress (Hero) has a pool of hydromantic abilities. This pool has a certain number of points in it according to the following:
Basic - 30 points
Advanced - 50 points
Expert - 70 points
Ultimate - 100 points
Now the hero has these points. what this ability allows is for creatures to drain certain amount of points from the heroes hydromantic pool to do certain abilities as listed below:
1. Water Shield - Gives 100 extra HP to the stack (10 points)
2. Water form - Allows stack to teleport to another tile (2 points per tile teleported)
3. Cleansing waters - Removes enchantment (3 points per level of enchantment. aka 3 points to remove a level 1 dark/light magic spell, 9 to remove a level 3 spell)
4. Healing waters - Heals stack (1 point per 5 HP healed). Better used for high class creatures. does not ressurrect.
5. Imbuing Waters - Replenishes mana (1 point per mana). Usable by the Archon-Grand Archon
6. Tidal Wave - Stuns enemy stack (10 points per hit)
Visually we can see water being drawn from a mystical source and used to gain the abilities. Each ability will look different visually.
I think we can add a few more abilities to the above. I personally think this is as good as it gets. What do you think?

Hokay

I think Lizardman Prowler - Chameleon Prowler names are too long, but since nobody minds, neither will I.
I'm for Viper/Cobra Sentinel, although acolytes are ok too.
Swamp warden would be best, swamp defender is unfitting since dwarves already have defenders.
Grand Archons are cool
Emperor Leviathan is cool
I didn't pay too much attention to building names, they're not too important anyway, and I think you can handle that without me.
I think that about covers all things that needed voting. Right?

With Baklava voting, I think its safe to say there's enough votes for the creature names and dwellings that it is safe to proceed to the next phase...Designing the heroes:
1. Can someone sift through and locate all the Hero bios?
2. Anyone has any suggestions for Hydromancy? And Secondary abilities and ultimate ability as well...
3. Hero abilities... 1 ability for each skill (ie. Attack, Defense, Dark Magic). I think we can use the strangle archer ability suggested by Vhilhu for the defense skill. That leaves us down to 11 more to go.

Digged out some heroes....
Note that ideas come from different people so some heroes are similar.

-------
Elussia

In her early ages, Elussia got lost in one of the dense jungles of Hashima. However, following a serpent fly, she managed to get out of the forest and safely return to her family. That made her very fond of those creatures and she spent a big part of her life near them, studying their abilities and strength. Experienced in that, she somehow manages to use the serpent flies in battle better than the other commanders.

Specialty: Fly Mistress – all serpent flies and cuotles in hero’s army have their initiative increased by +1 for every 4 hero levels, starting on the first level.

-------
Melfasir

Melfasir is widely known as one of the most potent naga spellcasters around. He compensates his lack of wisdom with pure magic talent, and he is sometimes unaware of the destruction his spells can sow in their path. That has put him in quite a few troubles, but his powers are still seen as useful, if a little random.

Specialty: Subconcious Cast – hero’s destructive spells have a 2% chance per level to inflict double damage.

-------
Golthas

As one of the few lizardmen heroes in the naga society, Golthas has earned his respect as a strong and sharp commander, capable of many a war feat. He is an inspiration to all of his kindred, as he is the living proof that lizard people can be as powerful as any naga. As a result, any lizardman will fight more fiercely to bring glory and might to Golthas, and thus all of his race.

Specialty: Lizard Chieftain – all lizardmen (including sentinels) gain +1 attack and defense under this hero’s command for every 4 levels, starting on level 1

-------
Gelusia

At her youth, Gelusia lost her pet fish to hungry lizardman. Few years later she lost her family to a group of rogues... She never forgot how she was too weak to help her pet and her family. She started practicing Ice Magic so she can protect any of her friends in the future.

Specialty: Ice Maiden - Whenever a friendly creature gets hit by an enemy in melee or ranged combat there is a 1% chance per level of hero that an Ice bolt spell will be cast on attacker.

-------
Hsaaar

In his youth, a band of dark elf slavers attacked Hsaar's village. Luckily, the raiders were defeated, and Hsaar, as a young lizardman aspiring to learn the secrets of chemistry and alchemy, started studying a dead hydra to understand their regeneration capabilities.That has become his obsession, and in time, he has learned how to use the blood of hydras and various chemical substances to enchant others' regeneration abilities. Needless to say, his skills were much needed in the naga military and he was quickly recruited and made a leader.

Specialty: Regenerator - all creatures under Hsaaar's command gain regeneration ability and regenerate 10%HP+2% for each level of hero. Hsaaar concentrates on regeneration process so his iniative in combat is decreased by 1.

-------
Manivald
male lizardman

Manivald used to be a brigand. One day a cultist with a staff came by and told him that this is not the way to live one's life. "You need but find yourself a good staff and travel around the world, spreading the faith of chaos, don't think only of your own good!" Manivald listened and he liked what the cultist told him. A sudden blow from the brigand and the cultist fell down dead, and Manivald picked up the staff to spread chaos as had done the cultist.

speciality: Chaos Faith - Sentinels and Grand Sentinels deal 5% per hero lvl extra damage to Good units.

----------
Zher-Otonine
female naga.

Always the gambler, Zher-Otonine studied the ways of fortune for many years, developing a knack to always be the lucky one in the end, leaving her game opponents misfortunate sods. Not until she entered the hight ranks of the military did she reveal that she could siphon off enemies fortune, an ability she now uses to increase the luck in her troops while decreasing it in her enemies.

Speciality: Fortune taker - Hero has the chance to steal luck from random enemy creatures for the rest of the battle, adding them to random own troops. The higher hero level, the more luck will be stolen. Does not work if all enemies have luck -5.

---------
Thats it, sorry if i misssed any....

Excellent work Yasmiel. Would you like to vote on the names of the creatures and dwellings on page 18? I would also like to suggest changing Melfassir and Elussia so that Melfassir has the Lord of the Flies specialization and Elussia has subconscious caster. This is purely so that Melfassir (a male) can have the specialization Lord of the Flies  (an indirect tribute to the movie of the same name).

i just mean orcs are already made-in-academy, that makes 4 factions eveloped from wizards with storyline (academy, necropolis, orc, lizardmen). thats almost as unoriginal as flooding everything with dragons(all praise nival for their ingenuity).

* lizardmen only as lvl 1 angers many fans. such as myself.
* nagas as lv 2-4 angers a lot more fans. nagas have never been that low.
* noooo moooore draaaagons!!!!! everybody is already sick of them.
* in this thread we have already a better one, id say. and im quite sure that this other lineup wont make it into game. so take your lineups better points and try to give them to this thread and cease the other sanctuary development. theres no point in competition between 2 threads like this would be.

----------------------------------


LIZARDMEN DESCRIPTION PROPOSAL:

Lizardmen had dwelled undisturbed in the swamps for ages, worshiping pagan deities. But the inquisition of the Holy Griffin Empire saw that the pagan worship was utter blasphemy of dragon worship and a crusade was launched. Lizardmen caused some damage and confusion amongst imperial troops with their corrosive darts, but they were soon outnumbered and outarmed. Seeing the deteriorating situation, lizardmen quickly accepted the alliance offer of nagas. The Empire called off its troops, seeing the war would turn to much larger scale and casualities. But Shalassa has been amongst lizardmen gods ever since for saving them from slaughter.

constructive comments/edits awaited.

About your description: Seems wellwriten. But do you realy think that the empire would waste it's troops on killing exotic pagans?

If no one else has any objections, I'd incorporate your version of the lizardmen in the minimasterpost as I am sick of Wizard related creatures as well. As for Fortress-Fan's idea, I'd say the whole thing is uncorelated and a mishmash of creatures from a game long since gone. Lets try to work with something new here instead of reviving crappy creatures like the rust dragon.

No! We should not accept the damage Nival and Ubisoft has done to this excellent game. They try to make Heroes a "mainstream" game, one of many fantazy games. We have to defend the traditions! With Hydras in dungeon we need an replacement on Level 7 and why skip the chance to revive some of the old creatures?

I've been working on a new version of the Lizardmen description, I've got in my files somewhere, give me a few mins to look this up.

Also remember that it was NOT my idea to make the lizards a wizard mutant, it was rather a general wish of many of the people who left the project.
<Will edit post after I've found it>

Lizardman Prowler
The Lizardmen are one of the few races that developed without much Dragon intervention. They evolved over the centuries in the fertile marshes of Hashima and made that very land their dominion. Originally the Lizardmen were organized in rivaling colonies, but that never lead to anything but a few minor skirmishes. After they made their pact, the Lizardmen became an organized civilisation. The Lizardmen are great hunters and know how to catch almost any game in their native swamps. Their best hunters are known as prowlers and use long decorated blowpipes and bone bolts to take down their prey. The Lizardmen have learned to coat their bolts in their own highly corrosive saliva, this causes the bolts to eat their way through almost hide or armour and cause grievous wounds.
