But why Redcap's don't suit in the theme? They suit in any dark forest theme?

Excuse me if I'm wrong, but isn't redcaps a type of gnomes/goblins? In that case it seems logical if he choose not to include them. It seems to have more of a haunted forest vibe to it.

Also, feel like creating my own little faction, as a suggestion. If you don't mind.

I predict a mixture between emperial china and feudal japan, with mystical creatures from both.
Would it be wrong to guess we'll see terracota soldiers, yuki-onna, kirins, and onis?

Well there are many interesting japanese creatures, that's for sure. Though there might still be some good chinese, like the vermillion bird.

Vermillion Bird? Really? That is just a Phoenix. I really dislike most chinese monsters.

Always some exceptions though.

Xiao - The winged kleptomaniac monkeys
Dijiang - the chaos incarnates
Zhenniao - The beautiful, but poisonous crane birds
Zheng - the Unicorn mountain panther with red fur and five tails
Dragon Turtle - I loved them always in D&D
Dilong - the forest and earth dragon
Terra-Cotta Warriors - They are just amazing, and many story potential
Gaki - I love these hunger monsters, greed and gluttony killed them and ressurected them as horrid ghoul-like monsters which entire body is crowded with maws, every cut they receive becomes a new hungry maw.
Nian - The feral unicorn lions
Kun Peng - Flying fish with bird wings
Pixiu and Taotie - Statues of greed and gluttony, that inside of them have a portal to another realm, so if they swallow you whole you end up in a pocked realm, which functions as a prison, inside Pixiu you end up in a endless treasure/gold coins room where you drown in the gold.

We have added new faction to the world of Inolin Empire faction, based more or less on the Japanese and Chinese civilizations.

Welcome to the Empire, the land high above the clouds where humans and Kamis live together in peace and harmony  

PS: Do not forget to listen to Empire theme while reading about the faction !

Wow, just had a look at Empire and I must say: Really cool work. Apart from the fact that I quite like east-Asian culture, I can also see a really diversive faction here. All the creature choices make huge differences.
There's only one little point I could criticize now: The Monkey Lord has quite some parallels to the Gorillaman of Temple (I mean:They are both intelligent Monkeys, aren't they?), which was also T6. But, well, if one looks closely one sees that they are quite different types of monkeys after all, so maybe this isn't really a problem. But I would still advice you to get the monkey  rid off all these human clothes. I mean: He's an animal Lord, why should he dress up like a human?

But that's just minor things, all in all: Really nice faction!

Empire is really nice! Kinda inspiring too. Sadly no samurai units, or any onis.
Though personally I would have peferred a duelform kitsune, with amelee fox form and a ranged human form. And maybe a more higher tier for the Yuki-Onna.

The Samurai was in the early draft of the line-up but we decided it would be better if Samuari would be the Hero of this faction rather than a unit

Little question:

Do you guys actually planing on giving every other faction a theme?
Or just the four new ones?

By the way, as always simple a great work.

and Thank You

I would say yes please!
It is simple a different feeling. At least, for me.

So we are going to eventually have whole playlist with themes for every faction, in the first main post of the thread i have created the playlist with links, for now with only couple of themes. What we have already chosen is not set in stone, if we find something better while searching and listening to music, we will change it

And if you have your propositions for themes feel free to suggest some

Already listed to the themes. Like them. Can not wait for the rest.


And actually I do have some propositions.

For Stronghold:

Following are from games:

Personally I think, something more or less heavy with drums suits Stronghold the best.

For Fortress:

For Bastion:

Well, here they are.

Only now I have read more properly the thread. ^^ I'm ok with basically any of these propositions, although I feel they are too traditional in their way – if that's the point, then that's settled.

It does resemble here and there some of the propositions, at least line-up wise, when I was gathering resourcing materials, and some match, of course, for iconic and traditional purposes.

Now, getting back to research and gather more materials.

Heroes-based proposal threadOn hold, while I'm writing my book. =)

About the sound scores: We are looking into finding the best sounds for each faction in order to create the best possible immersion.

About the lineups now: Our main drive in making this project was in retaliation to heroes VII. What i mean by that, is that, after seeing all the dichotomy from the fan-base here we tasked ourselves to see if we could come up with an idea that would reconcile old and new players. A way to move into a new world while maintaining from all previous games. So yeah, the lineups were never meant to be original but mostly to be creative while keeping the spirit of the previous games. In other words, we tried to find what the archetype of each faction is/was/could be and try to work around it. For example, Sylvan has been about both the fairy tale aspect as well as the ferociousness of nature. So, you now have the pixies, the dragons and the elves along with new units. Other factions were a bit harder. For example Dwarves got their faction in Ashan, so we needed to redefine the faction is some ways. The same with Sanctuary and Bastion.
-Now, about how the lineups work: We wanted to use the lineups that were presented in all previous games. Meaning, the alternative upgrades of heroes V, the dual choosing units of heroes IV and Heroes VII and the idea of iconic stronger units.
