HoMM Complete Edition Revealed

Surely, you heard about this famous collection.

Due to the fact that only 20,000 of them exist, many of you don't have it. You wanted it so much, but simply you couldn't obtain it.

Or perhaps you have all the 5 games and dindn't bother to buy it.

In both cases, if you are curious what the box contains, here's you're thread. Of course, the contents are mentioned: we know about the existance of the Hardback Book, but we don't know what exactely is written in it. We know about the existance of a tarot card game, but we don't know how exactely they look like etc.

Being a possesor of the Complete Edition, I tought to make a few pictures to share them with you. I'm sure many of you will like them.

So, let's begin.



Before anyting else, there are some things you should now.

1. I made links because otherwise the posts would be verry long. You only have to click on the link to open the picture. Unless you maximize the window containing the picture, the quality will be low.

2. Since I made so many links, it is possible for some to be broken. If you notice a broken link, please let me know. Send me a HCM and I will solve it.

There have been a few threads on the complete edition but I had not seen the complete tarot cards until now, they look great I don't really know how to use them but the artwork is good and fitting. Do you know what each card represents?

P is like an Ace or a Jack. At least that's how I use it.

@Elvin: The deck consisting of the 54 classic cards act like a normal tarot deck. You can hfind all the information you nedd to use them here.

I don't think the artwork cards hav any particualr use, but you can always create custom rules with them.

The only instructions I found in the box about the tarot card game is in the art of Might and Magic Hardback Book.
It reads:
'         The deck of Tarot cards includes all the major game heroes, plus detail from the best of Olivier Ledroit's designs and drawnings. It contains all the traditional Tarot trumps and therefore, can be used for divination, as well.'.

I hope it helps.

I thank you verry much for giving me a QP, Alcibiades. My dream came true.

I don't think the T-shirt is ugly. They just wanted to make it funny and I really like mine.

Latter today I will continue with image posting, and even with some more. But I want to ask you a question: shall I put images in my post (resulting in huge posts and big loading times) or shall I put links?
Waht do you preffer, forumers?

Isn't it a beautifull scene?

And if we flip it a little...
Image

Check this out! A short description for each of the five games, along with some little screenshots.

The description reads:

Heroes of Might and Magic

" The King, Morglin Ironfist's father, has been killed and his throne usurped. Hunted, Morglin is obliged to flee his homeland to a magical land, Enroth, uncharted but contested by three warriors. The battle for the lordship is about to begin. "

Heroes of Might and Magic II

" After his death, Morglin's sons Roland and Archibald claim for the throne of Enroth. Seers are nominated to declare the heir. Once they are muredered, Archibald accuses his brother and they fight each other for the kingdom. "

Heroes of Might and Magic III

" Erathia's king Nicholas is murdered and turned to an undead warlord. His daughter Catherine, the Queen of Enroth, returns to Erathia to raise an army. She fights demons and necromancers and frees his father from his undead body. "

Heroes of Might and Magic IV

" According to an ancient prophecy, the battle between the Armageddon's blade, wielded by Gelu, and the Sword of Frost, holded by Kilgore, will result in the destruction of the world. When this two warriors begin the combat, a massive explosion destroys Erathia. However, refugees manage to flee through another portal to another world, Axeoth. "

Heroes of Might and Magic V

" In a new world, Ashan, th wedding between Queen Isabel and King Nicolai is interrupted by a Demon belonging to the warlord Agrael's army. Griffin Empire begins the war and Isabel is sent to the Summer Palace to be protected. However she wants to be part of the war and she raises an army to fight Agrael. "

Sadly, the texts contain a few flaws, as you can see.

I feel so bad right now. I saw it on the shelf at a game store in another city I was visiting for 40 bucks and didn't get it because A) the box was too big to carry around all day, and B) I figured it was just like H3 Complete; just all games and expansions, which I already have. I didn't know there was all that stuff in it! *Weeps silently* Only 20,000 units limits my chances of finding it here in my city. I should go back ASAP and see if they still have it, but I rely on my mom transporting me...

*Sits in a corner and sobs a little*

That's all? You bought it for that crappy HoMM4?

What?! You did not even noticed?! The whole case is covered with HoMM5 pictorals of art work from HoMM5! Silly!

It is also, to remind people that, there is only HoMM5 that truly matters and, no longer the titles made by 3DO/New World Computing.

I must admit though, it is a nice looking box to shelve and forget for a long time.
