H6-factions creating competition

Hi people.

I think it's time for another creative competition here. Those longer active on the altar will remember the finding harmony competition (which was by far the most popular and the greatest) and the minor others...
This one here shall, ultimately, build a faction setting, THE faction setting we choose.

It goes as followed:

The competition will (hopefully) have several rounds - at least 5.
Every round will deal with one of the factions we know of: Haven, Inferno, Necropolis, 4th faction - the old one, 5th faction: entirely new.
Every round will be divided into some sub-rounds: Creatures, Heroes & Town. This will hopefully make things easier and maybe the competition swifter.

How it works in the sub-rounds:

In any sub-round, the competitors give their complete idea of how the certain aspect of the faction of the round should look like. For example in round 1.1., you'd give all creatures of the faction you want - you are not fixed on what we know now!!! This shall be YOUR vision! - together with some detailed information (explained below more detailed).

After a sub-round, we take some time to vote which of the suggestion is the best. Anyone can vote this, participant or not, but participants cannot vote for their proposal!!! The proposal with most votes, naturally, is the one we take in.
So, after 15 sub-rounds, we have 5 complete factions. If than we still got much interest, we coudl do campaigns, more details, or expansion factions. We'll see...

Time-Issues:
A sub-round will last at least a week. After that, it will end when either we have 3 proposals or when 2 weeks (from the beginning of the sub-round) have passed.Extension will be given if necessary, but not too often per person (so that not one person allways needs one week more when everyone else is allready finished.)

Rules/What's Wanted:
Of course the judging goes by votes, but there are some things I think are NECESSARY for a proposal to be counted in:

1) Creatures
-You must have a full lineup of creatures: 3 core, 3 elite, 1 champion
-You must give an explanation for each creature, which shall cover background and appereance.
-You must give the strengths and weaknesses of each creature - not necessarily through stats, a short statement is enough! - hopefully including how expensive it is and how big its growth.
-You must give soem special abilities, or state the creature has none.
-Artwork is not necessary, but very possible, if you find suitable ones. YOU ARE BY NO MEANS FIXED ON THE ARTWORK WE ALLREADY KNOW FOR MMH6!

2) Heroes
-You must set the hero class/es. You are free to create 1 or two hero classes.
-You must give at least 6 Heroes of the class, if you create one class, and at least 4 for each class, if you create two classes. These heroes can have special, but they are not necessary.
-If you create a racial, you must describe it.
-Information according skills, skill trees and such is not necessary, though it would be great.

3) Towns
-You must give the town name^^
-You must explain the architectonial town style. A bit mroe background on society and hirarchy and such would be great at this place.
-You must give all buildings, with names and short explanation of effect and price range - not the detailed price of course, but wether its more cheap or expensive and which ressources it costs. (remember there are only 4 now^^)

So, I hope the rules don't look to terrifying^^ They are not as evil as they look

So, I hope some people will like to join me in this and let's see which H6 factions we would make.

Greets,
Jiriki

Hi I also have some faction concepts that I would like to share. So, do we have to wait for further instructions or simply post our idea within a week from today? Also, sorry if I may have misinterpreted something, but what do you mean by "each round will deal with one faction we already know of"? Since we're meant to be creating a new one.
Can some of the creatures be ones that appeared in previous HOMMs?
Do we post our whole idea at once, or, as mentioned above, split it into one post for creatures, one for buildings etc?

Hi
As mentioned above, this is about shaping the factions we know to be in H6 - but to our will.
And, as mentioned above, you give the faction in three pieces: First sub-round is the lineup, then the heroes, and finally the town itself.

To make it clear, and since at least 2 of you are joining and I maybe am gonna give a proposal, too, I hereby start the first round and sub-round!

Round 1.1:

Haven - Creatures

In this sub-round, please give, as stated in the first posts, the creature line-up you imagine for Haven.

Note: Of course you can use old creatures. If you want, you can even copy a whole lineup from a previous HoMM, but as well completely new ones. You are completely free...as long as you stay with the task of creating the Haven lineup

I think I might join as well. I always enjoy getting my creative juices flowing.
I may however not be able to participate in every round. Exams are starting to loom on the horizon, so I may need to spend time on actually studying.

I don't understand you? I think I made all restrictions pretty clear in the post/s before...what do you mean by frame-set restrictions and timeset restrictions?

I will post my response tomorrow because I have homework to do at the moment

And when we're going to be in later rounds(creating our own faction) I am not entirely sure which out of the factions I created I should post in this competition...I created a thread "My factions that incorporate creatures missing in H5 and some new ones" (its on the top of the third page in The Altar of Wishes. @Jiriki, could you please have a look there and tell me which in your opinion has the biggest potential, I'd be grateful. If not, then I'll just choose one anyways, though it'd be nice to get feedback.

@SkrentyzMienty:

I will...yet I think you may have misunderstood the competition...You have a certain task...and that is, make the creatures for faction HAVEN^^ As long as you do that, EVERYTHING is fine Yet, you would probably have difficulty, explaining a lineup to me that looks very unealistic, like:

Core:
Imp, Goblin & Skeleton

Elite:
Vampire, Unicorn & Minotaur

Champion:
Lava Dragon

This is a fantastic idea

hmm now I just need to figure up whether I should make my Haven heroes Slavers or not, which means slave units like dwarfs, elves, vampires and angels.
All shackled by the will of the GRIFFION EMPIRE!

Or if I just should make as serious suggestion...

What I mean is there any place or time we're not allowed to create in. Like I could have my Haven take place in 9086807 on the Planet Zogg, if that were allowed. Or I could have my Haven in the frameset of the Warcraft Series.

Is that kind of thing restricted or not?

PS. I won't, I'm rather taken with Ashan, as it is one of the places I know the best.

haha I understood that doing Haven creatures is the task for NOW, but after doing all the factions (Academy, Dungeon etc.) I suppose you will ask everyone to post their own ideas(unless I'm wrong), so I was just talking about the far future And lol at the faction above

@war-overlord:

You can do what you want concerning that^^ I personally, think it will be easier, f.e. for the voters, when you don't get too strange though...and the choice may be revamped later...
for your consideration: any further sub-rounds will build on the earlier. Inside a faction, that's naturally, but since in the end we shall want to see: If we had to create a HoMM game with the given factions and teh core, elite, champion system, how would OUR game of that look like...which means we're on one hand, free, but on the other hand, all factions shall be in the same set IN THE END. That would REALLY only matter if someone made a really great faction and set it in the way described by you

@SkrentyzMienty:

Fine. Yeah, than you can do what you want. And it IS a long time 'til then...and we are the only ones who can quick it up

Nice to see so many known faces coming back, and some of the new people peering in, as well.

@nightterror:
also, the rounds are divided, as mentioned, in sub-rounds, and if you hate making anything but creatures, you just don't need to participate in the further rounds
But, you are indeed very wrong here. We had SO great hero classes, racials, specials, perks, and and and and!!! Not only in the epic Finding HArmony competition, but also in the other competitions!!!

@alci: As I mentioned, the roudn won't end before one week, and you can, at least once or twice, ask for an extension!

@Nightterror I kinda agree that creating creatures would be a lot easier and available for everybody, but doing town buildings and heroes will be a challenge, I will find it quite tricky, but I'll give it a try
