The new vote: which new factions should we post first ?

For this vote there will be more time, because we need it to make some final decision considering line-ups for all 4 new factions (we have already made most of them). After you choose first faction (this time please chose only one faction, choose one letter; A,B,C or D) we will work on bios, abilities and art.

PS: The faerie Dragon will be updated in sylvan line-up tomorrow


     


      You walk up to a point where you find yourself on a crossroads.
          One way goes to the lush jungle. The other, fades into sandy landscapes.
          On another, you see the entrance of a dark, eerie forest and on the last one
          you find a rocky path adorned with jades, with small statues along the way.


         Where do you go?

We got a dark forest, a japanese shrine (?), Pyramids, and a mayan or aztect temple. Hmm, wonder what these could be.
The only thing I could think of for the dark forests is a witch faction, which is sorta meh.
The shrine would most likely be a samurai faction with creatures like the Oni and Japanese dragons. Maybe some creatures from other mythologies like the Monkey king. A pretty solid concept regardless. (please let there be the Yuki-Onna)
The pyramids got me thinking "The tomb kings?" Really hopes that's the case, since the mummy feels out of place in the necropolis and would actually make an interest faction on it's own. Though alternatively it could be a nomad faction similar to the roving clans from endless legend.
The mayan is clearly where the werejaguar went, not much to add.

I'm split between B and C

In the first instant I would say: B, but the mayan temple could be interesting too and I could imagine some quite nice factions based on old-Egyptian mythology. Only the forest I´m not able to place really.
I feel a bit under-informed to make a final decision here. But, for now it shall be B, because that was my first idea.

I would like to wholeheartedly congratulate you for the effort of displaying your fantasy on this board. The world you created feels alive, balanced  and organic.
Simply put, I would love to see HoMM taking place in your world. It feels right.

As for the voting, the dragon was my first choice, as well, followed by the defender and D is my current choice.

My first post on heroes community and it goes to the best project I have seen so far.

I will keep it short for now, details are on their way when every faction is done but I say D.

Yeah it easily put to shame what Ubi proposed, creatures are good and the tier system well put together with the lineups.

I vote C but D is fine.

Gratitude for your kind words (yeah, i am watching Spartacus and i am influenced by their way of speaking )

I know that some of our decisions are not met with much enthusiasm, such as a lower level fairy dragon and such. But keep in mind, that opinions vary a lot. And each Heroes game tried to redefine itself in a new world and this is what we try to do as well. Inolin is a new world, which provides new opportunities. Good thing with this world is that if you don't like a unit you can always choose its counterpart, thus allowing you to create your lineup as you see fit.

Cortes, welcome to heroescommunity mate and know that our post being the first time to write something is deeply appreciated and added to our enthusiasm to keep going. All of you in general that keep this thread alive are in a way our oil that keeps our flame going.

Many of you ask about the dark forest option. Unfortunately, we cannot give out much info. But it is what is it, a dark forest and whatever you might find there
Though, let me give you a tease....

The night falls and you find yourself in a thick forest, luminescent with eerie lights, dead silent. No normal sound coming from woods is heard. You walk upon pathways, hard to describe them so. From the side of your eyes you can catch distorted figures moving about, silently, prowling… An uncomfortable feeling of something following you, looking at you, stalking you is always present. A rustling!!! Something is indeed there! Or was it just imagination? It is thick darkness, the mind can create images, bring forth fears hidden from childhood age. But you are a man. Although, in the darkness, fear overcomes, you are a child once more. Suddenly, you stumble upon something hard, hitting face and chest on it. You fall back trembling. A tree, it was just a tree. You try to stand back again, and face two huge yellow glowing eyes looking at you, and you know, your end has come…

About the current vote. So far the results are:
A-0
B-2
C-1
D-3
But the voting will be up a while longer. Maybe until early september. I will talk with Minastir and have the vote post updated regarding end of voting.

Trully amazing job

As you did not change the factions much, I wouldn't even mind leaving Ashan. There could be a lot of space FFF (for fantastic fantasy) stories.

The only bad thing is that HVIII with these ideas will never be done.

As regards the vote, it's too hard to decide, I must think it over.

These pictures remind me of necropolis, sanctuary, academy and bastion.

Btw, Are you sure you wanna have the mummy in necro (picture C)?

Please replace the mummy (with a draugr or something), please give us the tomb kings! I would love a mummy based faction with anubite and scarab units!

Where do you go?




The jungle looks way too dangerous and I am scared of what lurks in the forests. I don´t see any oasis in the desert, so I am going up into the mountains...

Although I am most interested in A and C, because I am not sure what these could be.
I am guessing the dark forest is a city of the werewolves, but it could be something different...C, I am thinking of 2 options : a nomadic clans faction or the underworld of Anubis.

Anyway I am voting B, because it was my answer to your question, and I am interested if it has connection to the H6 sanctuary or not


And about the mummy in Necropolis, we don´t know what exactly will the C faction be, so I suggest to discuss this later when it´s revealed.

I'm very impressed with the work here. Despite minor disagreements here and there, which is to be expected from a project of this nature, I'm liking what I see here. Is the "lore" for each faction concrete as of now, or is it subject to change?


In regards to the vote, I'd like to see what you guys can do with A.

I dont think we are gonna change the lore. But, do not think of lore are a means to confine. We offer guidelines in order to make this universe feel compact. But! Whoever wants to create a story around a faction or a hero or even a unit, he can.
For example, we say that stronghold is comprised of races that have a warlorad. But what of the individual races? Was it always so? Will it always be so? Of course not. And here is where imagination of each one that wanta to create stories comes in. There is no fixed timeline, no events, just hints and pieces of what moght have been waiting to be expanded by anyone with some good imagination.

Well maybe i should tell you now, that it won't be tomb kings for multiple reasons but the main would be, we don't want to rip-off Warhammer. Maybe you will also like what we have prepared for this faction Knowing this do you want to change your vote for the last time ?

Well all I want is it to be a mummy faction. Mummies, together with anubites and giant scarabs and such. Not a complete tombkings, that would be stupid and cheap.
That said, I won't change my vote, as I'm interested to see what you have in mind. Only thing other than I mummy faction I can think of is a desert nomad one. Surprise me.

Since there is no more votes, the voting is closed and the first faction has been chosen and it is the TEMPLE!



Full faction vote results:
A-1
B-2
C-2
D-3

In the meantime we have worked on the line-ups for all of the faction and I can say that 3 factions already have full line-ups (of course including Temple) only one of them still needs some work. Also we have figured out what's the general idea for the info and religion of each faction. Now after Temple won we can focus on writing a bio for each creature, invent abilities for all the creatures (side note: which is getting really difficult since we have so many factions, creatures and we don't want to be repetitive) and do the rest of the stuff.

Thanks for voting !!

Edit: We have updated Sylvan faction line-up with the winner of our last vote, the Faerie Drake/Faerie Dragon We have added new picture, bio and abilities

Be prepared one and all, for we shall soon walk into the jungles of Inolin.

We will witness bloody sacrifices, enslaved shadows and fast predators.

We shall soon come to know of the tribes that build Ziggurats and fight for a noble cause that terrifies all the rest!

Be prepared!!!
