Thoughts On Heroes

So yeah, I know that we know little to nothing about H6's main campaign or how it's going to play out, but what are your thoughts on the heroes that have been announced thus far? Also which one's your faaavorite

I, myself, can't stand Anton, because I just know he's gonna pull an Arthas and become evil/corrupted before the end. He even hears strange voices. Besides, his armor could also use a little color.

My favorite sibling is probably Sandor, because I'm pretty forgivable when it comes to pseudo-Conans. Should've had a better name though. It's such an obvious allusion to Sandro, the magnificent snow

I'm pretty sympathetic towards Anastasya. I always liked this type of characters, ofc her background alone does not say much. For instance I was seriously bummed by the end of Benoit Sokal's Paradise when it came to the protagonist.. Holy crap I just realized THERE IS GOING TO BE A SYBERIA 3!!! SQUEE! Err back on topic.

Sandor and Kiril also have potential but Anton seems to have a stick up his @ss. It's the curse of all hollier than thou overzealous snows.

Anastasya is my favorite. Reason? Because she's necro thus the main character in necro campaign which I will play first when I got the game. And necro heroes are cooler than others. Yeah, I'm pretty biased when it comes to necro.

Also curious about the unlockable heroes...

Anton: Not so much a stick up his arse as an entire church branch.

Kiril: Badass seems like but I'm worried he could be angsty, angsty bad!

Sandor: Badass, he's just going to go out and tear everything a new one.

Anastasya: Angsty is what she sounds like but somehow I have hopes for her.

Complimentory would be a beacon of wisdom and common sense for the last hero, I'm guessing I'll like her best.


Still they could all redeem or sully themselves in my eyes based on their actions.

Anton is lawfull stupid, so yeah, don't like him, and never will like those kind of heroes (never liked heven/castle heroes).
Sandor, the barbarian, demon basher..demon basher, don't like him
On the other hand twins, Anastasia and Kiril I like Cuz they are both in the "same story".

The fifth one, of sanctuary will probably be someone calm and wise.

Anton should have a love story with a dendroid in an expansion. Unlockable only by enjoying the stick oh ever so much.

From what we know, I'm not very fond of Anton and Sandor. Both are very cliché : the righteous and overzealous knight and the angry vengeful barbarian. Also, I dislike the Sandor name ... probably because it's too close to Sandro

I like Kiril and Anastasya more because they seem to be suffering from all the events and will have to cope with the consequences. I kinda like that

Anyway it will also pretty much depend on the path we will choose for them.

Luckily the choices provided by the Reputation system ensure that we can only blame ourselves this time if the characters develop into H5-style dolts/scumbags as the plot moves along.

Unless you have to pick between Lawful Stupid and Baby-Eating Evil, when you make a choice.
That's my problem with alignment systems often.
(sometimes it's Saint and Saturday Morning Cartoon Villain.)
(other times it's Love and Murder)

The above is just an example but often one, the other, or both options are stupid OR extremely cliche OR very out of character.

If an alignment system does feature evil options, often those options aren't so much EVIL as they are "be a jerk". (Looking at you Fable franchise!)

Yeah, no matter whether there will be choice involved or not, one character can always be ruined. Or saved. You may have 3 very different options, which share the characteristic "moronic". Heroes V proved again that you don't have to be good or evil to look like cretin.
As for the incoming characters - so far Kiril is the most promising one. Anastasya could be successful or dumb character - her basic description makes her too straight-forward, but we'll see. Sandor is allied with Orcs, a race as complex as a battering ram, I don't expect much from him. And Anton is on the bottom, sounds like your regular idiot zealot. Who knows though.

I consider Anastasya something close to Fiona in clash of heroes. Fiona was the afraid little girl that eventually ended up taking an interest in the ways of necromancy - despite not having much of a choice you could at times tell she was into it, especially as her mastery grew. I think Anastasya's quote is implying a similar conflict in that she is forced to do the same but actually dislikes necromancy as compared to just being simple. Unless she gets a good dose of the seductive path to the dark side

I am curious how the necromancer ideology and touch of order will affect her character.

Considering it's her greataunt teaching her, it's bound to be teenageish "I hate you!" at first.
