magazine.

They may have a site.

The battle fields will have obstacles.

The Haven town will let you resurrect some creatures after each battle.

The Necopolis will raise forces from the dead.

The Preserve will let your recruit new forces after a battle.

You can retaliate immediately instead of a counterstrike.

Types?

Can u tell us the types of towns?
I can guess that Asylum is the Dragon, Minotaur etc.. town, Necropolis is the skels, zombies, liches town, and I think academy is the halflings, golems, giants, mages town, and Stronghold is the barabarians. Can u tell exactly the type or units of each town?

It doesn't tell much about the units except there are new ones.

Here is a quote: "With one slot in the town screen but more than one choice for every unit-generating building above first level you'll have to decide between units, With no one town able to give a player every available unit,...hoping to make town development more integral to mid to late portions of the game."

Preserve is woodland creatures.

Haven is all human.

Stronghold has strongest creatures in the game but no magic.

Thank you Jarrett.

It sounds very interesting.  I wouldn't mind more towns, but it sounds like the game is going in a different direction, which is to be expected.  I'm sure people must have realized their wishes were probably a little useless since the game design would be different than what could be anticipated.    

So far everything sounds good, from the heroes in a stack, to the not needing heroes to have creatures about.  Maybe it will come out by Christmas at this rate?

Sounds Great

Well the screenshots look great (but i'm a little disappointed with battle screen so far) and this info sounds real good so far.
Sounds like there will be many creatures and combos to play with meaning replay value for every town will be much higher.
I hope that the creature choices won't have one dominant or obviously better creature for each lvl of each town. Otherwise will make town building predictable.
And for those of you who aren't happy with # of town types I will put money on that there will be add-ons galore.
Every little bit of info makes me drool in anticipation hehe.

smells like death

i can't wait to see the alylem and necropolis towns ((heeeeeeeeee)) there are hopefully more veriables in the 6 towns they have than in 15 full towns of 7 creautres (oh yeah, is 7 still max town creature level?) and there will probably be at least an add on for each town (specific campain quests) and more towns, maby bring town count up to 10,
i will admit i am dissapointed in there being units with out heroes, because that is the point of a hero, but i know that with out the heroes stats it will compensate for it,

THAT ASYLEM HAD BETTER BE NUTRAL!! THEY ARE TOO CRAZY TO BE EVIL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  (heeeeeeEEEEEEEEEEEE)

Thx

Thanks Jarrett.

Don't worry Vesuvius, the info is on the printed version of the magazine, which costs $money$ . Jarrett sent me the scan of the pages, there is no important info other than posted here.
