Seeing as how I did not find (or at least notice) this in the main thread, should we include this specific timeline of Ashan scenario chronology? Credit to Avonu for the find.

I find it hilariously bad that both valkyries and fire giants are dwarves in disguise. But rest assured, it could have been worse!
I am still floored with the inception of the Lava Elemental, how novel and innovative! Truly, the creativity with this game is reaching new heights.

Well, it's an improvement over H5. It's not just dwarves + dragon, now we also have a lava elemental

Nah, the lineup is fine. It's the bullcrap lore that turns me off.

I think we both knew that the lore was going to be awful. I suppose I should just be happy that Valkyries and Giants are things in the fabulous, mystical land of Ashan.

P.S. Just noticed your signature. Lol.

come on elvin! everyone in this forum is so prejudiced with the lore! leave it alone already! enjoy the line up. it's not half bad (never liked dwarves in general).
every time everyone one of you keeps trashing the lore the answer is always going to be "aliens as demons". an eternity of ashan lore is not even close to how bad the "kreegans" were.
and let the HC police jump at me with the ferocity of a 1000 behemoths!

You should say "aliens and demons", as the old world has them both But, I have no worries for Ashan, as they can always invent something called Area Region 51 in Sahaar desert, where Wizards conduct their experiments on aliens beastmen.

I don't care about the kreegans but labeling every unit as a dwarf even when it's clearly not is freaking annoying.. Next thing you know, we get troll-dwarves.

But did they ever started using that fact to explain everything tied to kreegans? Besides, when they did want to force the lore to go on - in the form of Forge - a lot of people became very angry and Forge was scrapped because of them.

So, ah, there are worse things than demons as aliens.

No, I guarantee that trolls will just be more beastmen like kobolds.

What about more demon-mixes like the goblins, orcs, and cyclopses (or however you plural them)? If memory serves, each of those was a mix of human and the blood of small, medium, and large demons. What about replacing "human" with another race, like elves or dwarves? Dwarf with Juggernaut blood = troll? Or would that be "ogre"?

Yeah we're definitely running out of elves.

But let's make it half-demon half-elf half-dwarf.

I honestly would not be surprised if Ashan explained halflings as being a dwarf-demon mix using the same lesser demons that created goblins.

halfings cant have orc or demon blood, they are too cute

if i would be writing their lore, i would be making them not from a mix of any race. they are halflings, original beings. so.. explanation behind their existance? simply, they hide from the entire  world in a faaar far land with some fearie dragons just as cute as them they are drinking their warm teas and having conversations about growing carrots.

if they ever get involved into ashans troubles, it would be because of they had no other choice.

some crazy high level mage may accidently call their land to ashan with some portal, colliding worlds or some snow like that. other then that... i dont see them coming into ashan in a near future you need a real good solid reason to bring them. i mean why would any halfling leave his home? they probably have everything they ask for, and they are a race known for not seaking any adventure

I'm down with that. Kinda reminds me of how elves were introduced in the Majesty / Ardania setting. One day, a bunch of ships arrived with elves, who promptly got off, burned their ships, and refused to talk about where they came from. All the explanation you need with enough gaps to fill in your own details.

It has already been stated that halflings are gone for good.

Interesting. Was Nival's H5 set in the OldVerse at some point?

edit: herp derp first entry mentions Bracada. I wonder if the plot would have been the same with the names changed (ie Great Arcan instead of the Silver Cities and whatnot)

Amusingly, Ashan or not, Dark Elves and Minotaur Slaves would have happened.

Quote:
Eruina: There're rumours that Eruina is a daughter of Matron Mitnarda who led the Dark Elves during the war with the former masters of Dungeon. Nobody knows for sure if that really is so but Matrons and Matriarchs in her army treat Erunia with awe, supporting her magic strikes with the fury of their spells.


Quote:
Not-Kythra: Menel is one of the wealthiest heroes in Dungeon. The source of his wealth is the many Minotaur slaves who not only generate his income but make the basis of his army. Menel recruits only the strongest and most aggressive warriors, who've graduated from the tough school of gladiator fights.


As you may know, I love my female heroes, so i'm not really fond of the "1 female hero per faction" thing this had going on though.

edit of the edit: oh my headcanon about Lucretia was broken. She wasnt meant to be Vidomina, she was meant to be TAMIKA
