Joint Forum Heroes 6 Project

Let's build together HOMM6, as a joint project, a forum activity. Everybody will make a part of it, and together we'll get a great product. Things will work like in this old thread by actionjack. The hot topic on the Altar is now HOMM6, not creating separate factions, so that's what we shall do.

I think we shall have atleast 3 new factions in HOMM6. Let's work on three. If we see it's too much we just won't use one, and if we see we need more, we'll make more.

To do list

Part 1: Basic info of the world (Cepheus) DONE
Part 2: Background Story (Cepheus) DONE
Part 3: Lore of new Faction 1 (GenieLord) DONE
Part 4: Lore of new Faction 2 (guarder) DONE
Part 5: Lore of new Faction 3 (bixie) DONE
Part 6: Creatures for new Faction 1 (GenieLord) DONE
Part 7: Creatures for new Faction 2 (guarder) DONE
Part 8: Creatures for new Faction 3 (bixie+Ted) DONE
Part 9: Racial skill of new Faction (Lexxan)
Part 10: Racial skill of new Faction 2 (guarder) DONE
Part 11: Racial skill of new Faction 3 (Insectiods)
Part 12: Heroes for new Faction 1 (Nagas)
Part 13: Heroes for new Faction 2 (Ogres)
Part 14: Heroes for new Faction 3 (Insectiods)
Part 15: Campaign Story (Cepheus) DONE but unfinished.
Part 16: Town views descriptions
Part 17: Finding music
Part 18: Original changes on HOMM6 (kraken) Done?
Part 19: Magic System (Daystar) DONE
Part 20: Skills and abilities (Mytical)
Part 21: Editing existing factions (Xerox) A LOT DONE
Part 22: Neutral Creatures (BradRepko) DONE right?

Join and pick what you want to do.
More than one person can work on a part of the project.
If you have more suggestion for things that should be done, write them here.

I'm taking part 6 and 3.

lore what means that? history? type of faction? if it's not so much of history i can take part 4 and 7, if it's much history i will only take part 7. and i was planning some ogre, human, monster. Or easier said survivors from erathia that don't appear in axeoth, but ashan. But then i must know some history first.

Edit: cepheus posted before me, so he could take part 4 if he wants

Thanks!  Though that's 1 through 5 - i.e. 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5.  Probably too many but whatever.
Oops, I didn't notice.
Anyway, start with three parts. We should leave something for the others as well. If nobody takes them is a while, I'll give them to you.

I'm giving to you Number 2 as well. It's better that the same person will make both 2 and 1.

The lore is the basic info of the faction, history and some general facts about it. Who writes the lore has the right to decide what faction is it going to be.

I can do part 9. Was already thinking of a racial skill for somewhere(Maybe it should be elves but should probs be a magical faction to a point)

Also may be able to do part 12. But someone will have to do abilities and magic spells first i think

Basic idea- Battle balance
It would be a skill that can offer counter perks and abilities, Things that would reduce the perks of an enemy. In other words a whole big gamble. it would have 6 slots per ability .Youd get offered a choice of 8 (double what there is on a level up in heroes 5)
Each perk would be in a "sub" area of your skills. You wouldnt be able to pick an ability from a skill you do not have.
For example you could get summoning - Flattening winds to beat the perk wall of fog. But you could only get the balance perk if you
have summoning yourself.

Basic level- You get offered 1 Balance perk(name of these anti-perks) for every three levels
Advanced level You get offered one balance perk every 2.5 levels
Exxpert level- You get offered one balance perk every 2 levels
Ultimate level- every 3 levels, You get an extra balance perk.(cumulative with expert)
Racial abilities
Indirect flow- Causes all battlefield creatures to be directly affected by all (possible) perks. Friend and foe, by 300% (for example if you have Frailness(counter to vitality) all creatures on the battlefield would lose 4 health, Or until it dropped to 1 but only if the enemy actually has vitality)

Memory chant- May cause the enemy hero to forget a random perk or ability and learn a new one also chosen at random.

Ability vision- You can see all your enemies perks and abilities.

Their ultimate ability should probably be - Offensive imbalance. Which would make a randomly chosen quarter off their battle perks turn into normal perks and effect them but not the enemy instead

Anyway just a half baked idea. But i think it could work.could post list of possible anti-abilities as soon as someone does the abilities

Then please don't let me write the lore.  I prefer to expand on a person's faction with story details, but not to create the whole thing from scratch.

I meant that who writes Lore of new Faction 3 decides what will be the faction number 3. You don't choose all the new factions.

Yeah, but I don't want to choose any factions.  That simply isn't my area of expertise.

I assume the old factions will still be in, aswell as their racials? I have some additional hero specialties that I could provide, aswell as tweaking/balancing existing specialisations.

Also, I could probably come up with some ideas for hero specialisations or faction-specific perks once the factions contributed are more fleshed out.

Get someone else to choose it and then take credit then.
And nah not neccasarily. Could go either way. Maybe we create a dozen old factions or a dozen new ones.
Racial abilities and heroes certainly dont haev to stay the same if we can cook up something original.

I will do a new category of "editing existing factions" and I will give you part 13. Is that alright with you?
