New Witches (WoG script)

You know how all towns have good and bad heroes, but almost all Witches suck? Here's a wogify script that introduces eight new ones. Again, it is optional - it doesn't change the game and you can simply turn it on/off in your WoG Options/Custom Scripts. It's also  compatible with my earlier Halflings script.

Feedback is welcome, especially if you notice some bugs. I'm aware some features are imba, but I'm more interested in the fun factor - meaning I'll edit only exploits. Needless to say, most options are intended for singleplayer.


Itzii'bitzii
specialty: increases the Attack and Defense of any kind of Hydra she commands
starting skills: Wisdom, Water
starting spell: Teleport


Gorn
specialty: grants his troops Fire Shield when attacking
starting skills: Wisdom, Fire
starting spell: Fireball


Gila
specialty: poisons the enemy creatures when attacking
starting skills: Wisdom, Water
starting spell: Weakness


Vex
specialty: disease (infects the enemy creatures when attacking)
starting skills: Wisdom, Fire
starting spell: Curse


Tenehuini
specialty: produces 1 wood and 1 ore per day
starting skills: Logistics, Earth
starting spell: Slow


Sotek
specialty: upgrades Gnolls and Gnoll Marauders to Werewolves
starting skills: Pathfinding, Fire
starting spell: Bloodlust


Lamia
specialty: mobile darkness
starting skills: Wisdom, Air
starting spell: Disrupting Ray


Glycon
specialty: keeps his army when retreating
starting skills: Luck, Air
starting spell: Haste

TEMPORARY DOWNLOAD MIRRORS:

megaupload

Unpack the script84.erm and script84.ers files to your Data/s folder, while all the pictures go to your Data folder.

Thanks to Salamandre and Fnord for help.

All the portraits are taken from Age of Wonders.

(...and now I'm finally going to play the Atlantis mod, which is what you should be doing too. )

As always, high quality. Tenehuini is a God, isn't him? Logistic, earth + starting slow + wood/ore daily, why not add a hidden offense skill and just let him bring havoc.

I only noticed a small problem, the install. IMO it is much better to have all the files go in right place when unrar the thing, and not rely on manual copy/paste. Specially when nothing is overwritten.  Why not create the right folders in the rar, so it goes easier?

Thanks. It's probably full of bugs.

It's a pun from Warhammer, it's actually teeny-weeny. Just like Itzii'bitzii, which is actually itsy-bitsy. The guys at Warhammer are fond of such puns. The names are just misspelled on purpose in order to be reminiscent of Aztec deities, because that's where the inspiration for Lizardmen came from. The rest of the names mean everything and anything: Gila is a venomous lizard, Glycon a snake-god, Gorn is a reptilian alien from Star Trek etc.

I wanted to keep at least an illusion of him being a magic hero.

A good idea, I'll do it next time I update or reupload the file.

They are indeed very powerful in your script, but this will be balanced by the awful skill/stats progression the game proposes to this class. Needs some testing, but nevertheless they are now MUCH more interesting to play.  A witch with darkness is awesome. Marry her to Tazar and he will explore around in all immunity.

I think Sotek will be a problem. Regardless wog options selected, the werewolves can be extremely powerful creatures, changing the type of creatures on hit. I remember in my map Alexander having a battle late game against werewolves and they simply annihilated my archangels, turning them in...werewolves. Annoying.

I know. To upgrade the starting 30 Gnolls to Werewolves you need about 7,000 gold - so it's at least a strategic dilemma (not much of a dilemma though). He should have been a campaign hero or something. Oh well. Like Ubisoft says - if you want a higher dificulty setting, play without autosave. x10

Yes, not a dilemma at all, a few bucks to be able to destroy early creatures and get treasure behind them is not big deal, providing also early experience and such. It would be interesting to have (not in your script, but in general) mods where only main  heros can get high powers (special upgrades, imba abilities). For example, enabling them at level 15-20, which could become a strategic choice at start. Should I go with Sotek because  at level 15 my gnolls become unstoppable or I choose  Tenehuini to develop faster? And so on.

Only an idea, arguing here is infinite. I already tested the witches and there is no error. The poison thingie looks great

Great job, Vlaad!

But it is all giving me thoughts. What you just did to Fortress, Gnollking's New Heroes mod is trying to do to all of Heroes. Perhaps you should/could/might work together on such a thing?
Just random thoughts of course.

Actually, I was talking about it with Vlaad month(s) ago, and if it's fine with him, I could add the heroes to the mod
