Hi Guys!

I saw some concerns about the tones of questions you've asked and we did not answer them yet.

Don't worry, we did not just forget. We're working on it. You've given us a great load of questions so it needs time to sort them out and prepare the answers. We've started filming the first video Q&A but we need to reshoot, so hopefully, we'll get the editing and the publication next week or the week after.

You now know everything on the matter. Hope it helps you wait!


    Good news, so we can expect some new info for us to dissect and sink or teeth in.

So yay, Thanks Xhane!

It's no secret that HoMM is a niche series and being such it's fanbase is different from the one the usual money-making hits have.
Ubihole seems to target their news release at the latter which is misguided and would get irritating if I were on the "ZOMG A NEW HEROES GAME IS COMING. I WANT MY STUFF INIT" bandwagon.


The point is: we're nerdy and we want numbers

Just so you know I will hold you to this. When they start giving us numbers, Then it is your duty to post like crazy!

But seriously I don't understand why they don't give us things like that. I mean there is no way that their supply of news will run dry and they don't have that much time left...
(or rather I do understand, I just wish they could mix the news a little. Numbers AND creatures)

Timeline questions answered on the homepage interesting hints about the dark elves and the "free cities"

-How much time passes between the M&M Heroes V games? Like how much time passes in each game, how much time passes between the end of H5 and the beginning of HoF, etc. How many years pass total between the beginning of H5 to the end of ToE?
   The essential dates to remember, and what is really important in the big picture, is the time that passes between the end of the original H5 game (YSD 969) and the beginning of Dark Messiah (YSD 990). Those twenty years are the period in which Sareth, son of Queen Isabel and Kha-Beleth, who is the potential Dark Messiah, grows up.

-What happens to the Sylvan faction after their High King Alaron dies? Who takes charge of Irollan?  
  Findan, due to his exemplary conduct during Queen Isabel's War, is appointed regent. It is a safe choice, as he has never coveted the throne and his integrity is unquestioned. Thus, it will lie to him to decide how the next ruler and ruling clan will be selected. This is a separate episode in the history of Irollan.

- What are other Dark Elf Clans exist besides Shadowbrand, Soulscar and Nightshard? And what are other Free Cities exist besides Stonehelm?
  Further details of the Dark Elves are planned to be unveiled in future episodes, so we would rather not give out that information right now.  Other notable Free Cities include Foster's Reach, Listmoor, Eridan Crossing, and Karthal. And there is another one that the community will learn more about over the coming months...

- Are there really 3 moons in Ashan? If so, which one is the Primordial Dragon Asha buried in? Can all 3 open the gate to the demon prison during eclipse?
  Ashan has only a single moon where Asha lives to overlook her creation. The moon is in fact a cocoon that Asha wove around herself to heal and rest after the Dragon Wars.
However, this moon, like ours, has several phases, and the people of Ashan consider that, like Asha, it has three main aspects, or “faces”.
1) The face of Death (the Spider Queen), symbolized by the New Moon
2) The face of Life (the White Mother), symbolized by the Full Moon
3) The face of Destiny (the Blind Maiden), symbolized by the Changing Moon (waxing, waning, crescent, half, etc. - all the potentialities of existence)
As the moon is Asha’s realm, within Ashan’s fiery core is Urgash’s prison.
A Blood Moon Eclipse is a time when the planet Ashan blocks the sun's rays from striking the moon; Asha is thus “eclipsed” by Urgash.

About the screenshot - I'm really starting to not like the Maniac and Tormentor (miss you old Inferno!). This screenshot made me think about how many new creatures are there in the lineups and how many of them actually look alike. The Maniac and the Tormentor are like the same creature only with different tiers. And they both look really bad. The Panther Warrior is nice but is the screenshot a scene from a battlefield? It looks quite chaotic, I mean the places of the creatures. It's only my opinion.

Free cities are the humans that refused to worship Elrath that fled the Griffin empire(or the one that predated it anyway). I think they are nomadic and worship Sylath, the dragon of air.

Perhaps slightly. They are similar in shape, but less so in concept. But does it matter? It's a nice find, but what difference does it make?

Not realy sure of that. Any quadruped, wingless draconic creature is bound to have some similarities.

Or that there are only so many ways you can make a kirin. The old team obviously didn't have the kirin in mind but BH was likely to create a kirin for an eastern themed town. And kirin typically walks on all four legs and has draconic features..

Edit: War_overlord got to it first

Well, it has apparent draconic features, but it's more of a horse or a lion in other versions, than a dragon. So if they wanted to, they could avoid make it resemble a dragon so much. Not that it doesn't look great, as it is!

Kirin has many reincarnations. If you googled "kirin" you will see many different aspects (images) of kirin. That's the discription on wikipedia:

PS: I don't like asian interpretation of the dragons.

Yeah because a matriarch as the highest ruler of a society of women doesn't make sense?
Quote:
Women are almighty in the Dungeon society, for they lead the religious, political, and military powers.
Yeah what a lunatic creature.

The Matriarch was a great creature... well atleast as an idea the execution was questionable. The Highheels and fishnet stockings were a bit much I agree but it was still a good creature. As long as they give them a little more elevated/indimidating feel I think they'll be great (and that doesn't mean more clothes btw. Them dressing quite revealing also makes sense since they're in stark contrast to the "pure" Sylvann Elves. Obviously they're gonna be a bit more slu-ty sensual).
