The Creiz-Alternate Void Castle

Well, hello there ! Shadowmaster here. This is an idea for a castle ( one that wasn't ready for the time of the competition) which pretty much utilizes the idea of a Void Necropolis, but twists and turns it around into a completely new direction, with monsters taken from mythology of all continents. Meet...The Creiz !

A little backstory: The Creiz are a new race, that have replaced the common Necromancers after the ending of HoMM 5. These "renegades" utilize Chaos and Void magic to similar purpose as the Necromancers, to resurrect and bind the dead. But due to the unstable state of the Void and the Magic it produces, these creeps are much more scarier and twisted than the original Necros ever were. They also are not afraid to make human sacrifices to please the Old Gods, mythical beings from beyond time itself ( eventually revealed as heroes from Enroth and Antagrich with their names (Elug, f.e) and appearances twisted by the power of the Reckoning).

You thought that mad people should be locked up, cured…You don’t understand it…Madness is freedom. Mad is what we all should be.

A.K.A-The House of the Mad, the Resurrected ones.
Symbols-Harlequin mask, Skull with Centipede climbing out of eye
Colors: Purple, Black, Violet
Magic-Dark, dead, summoning.
Composed of-Undead beings, psychedelic monsters


Skeleton: The regular components of any Craze army, those creatures are the basic slaves of any Madmen. Dumb and loyal, they will do whatever their master asks them to do
Skeleton Screamer: Decades of experimenting with the sacred fire of Ken-Chirr have produced these abominations. Smarter, more agile and faster than any normal Skeleton, they are the elite amongst the dirt.
Appearance: Common skeleton. Gains purple fire-esque glow around head and arms beneath elbow are transformed into purple cat-o-nine-tails when upgraded.

Nachzehrer: If a person has committed suicide, it doesn’t mean that you can’t resurrect them; these beasts are created from the ones who killed themselves by the better Madmen. Despite their smartness and general bettership over common zombies, they do have the side-effect of eating themselves or the zombies they have been assigned to control.
Zombie Similar to Zombie in HoMM 5, with more bone and bits and pieces of brain revealed. Carries a meat cleaver surrounded in barbed wire.

Kludde: Some cats are valued even more in dead than they were in life. Resurrected by magic of the Voidmancers, they are used as personal pets and messengers of highly ranked wizards. Having a Kludde at your side is considered a sign of wisdom and richness in the Madmen culture.

Harlequin: The personifications of the Old Gods, these creatures, always dressed in jester suits and always mocking the enemy they are fighting, are ones that cannot be fooled and whose every joke is deadly.
Lord of Misrule: If a Harlequin is a personification of the Old Gods, these creatures are the children of Londar, the ruler of the Old Gods. They have the unique ability to cast a strange cloud over their unsuspecting enemy’s, briefly turning them from enemy to ally.

Dwelling: Circus Tent, Cirque du Lune. .
Strigoi: Often, desperate humans make pacts with Harlequins-their soul in rule for wisdom and strength. These poor people return from the death as Strigoi, forced to dwell in of neither Life nor Death, being used as personal “playthings “for the Madmen.
Empusa: When a human gathers the strength and will to and spells needed to chain a Harlequin to his will, the vengeful Harlequin will often resurrect them as Empusa. These beings are more valued in the Craze society than the Harlequins and do have an unsanitary need for blood, what makes them similar to Vampires.

Koshei: Some Wizards dare to go further, wanting to preserve their soul and achieve more wisdom a regular Mage could ever have wished for. Then, he takes the next step and rips his soul out, placing that in a vessel of his own design. After that, he becomes invulnerable and immortal but still ages with a normal rate, slowly becoming nothing more but a dried husk. These beings join the Creiz, trying to escape the punishment from other Wizards or kill themselves driven mad by the years of isolation.

Skeleton Golem: The best mages amongst the Madmen have one and only desire in their life-to create a Skeleton Golem. These imposing constructs are made of bones of the biggest sinners. It’s unique for a Madmen to create a Skeleton Golem, and in doing so, he proves his ultimate knowledge of the magic of the Old Gods.
Gashadokuro: Not occurring naturally in Ashan, these beasts made of souls of dead Liches and Harlequins are summoned trough the darkest magic possible-sacrificing a captured Angel. After killing a creature of such purity, the Mage must drink the blood of a pure-blood Unicorn. After he has completed these vile acts, he can summon a Gashadokuro. Most times the process is so exhausting that mages have one or two replacements to replace them if they fall down from the tiredness. As such it is difficult and often deadly to summon such a beast.

You should definitely use bold and/or underlined headlines to bring structure into your idea. Like it is now, it is nearly unreadable.
