New Campaign (Heroes Legends: Part I)

Good Evening Heroes III Community,

As indicated in my previous thread, I am working on a multi-part campaign for HoMM3 Complete that is intended to be an alternative to the Reckoning storyline. Players should view it as ultimately a replacement to Heroes Chronicles, involving many more characters from III Complete and giving Tarnum only a cameo role.

If this sounds appealing to you, Part I is now available in the link provided below.

To those who might have questions as to "why", I have a few justifications. For one, HC was not an altogether enjoyable game, in my opinion. The interesting dialogue aside, the maps were poorly made, the campaigns too easy, and I never enjoyed the fact that Enroth just gets blown up after the interesting build ups from Armageddon's Blade (although, I understand the appeal of the "corruptible hero" plot line). Second, I felt that certain characters were not given proper development; Dracon is a notable example, who seemed a natural foil to Mutare's invasion and yet, was never seen again. When I came across the Jennifer Bullard manuscripts, I was especially motivated to give Heroes players something different.

Part I of this story begins some time after the events of AB with Deyja and expands the storylines of a few select heroes, all of whom will be involved in future parts. The final three scenarios see the return of Gelu and his uniting with some friendly rangers as the plot with Deyja thickens. Naturally, the end of the campaign is a cliffhanger, but the events will resume immediately in Part II.

Deyja's big role in Part I is to serve as a plot device that ultimately changes the fate of Gelu and brings in all the other kingdoms of Antagarich. For those who find it a bit heavy with the undead, it will not stay that way in future parts, but Deyja's role will remain large until the final part. I will not spoil any endings I have in mind, but suffice it to say that Gelu and the fate of Enroth will be quite different in the end.

I hope players find Part I to be enjoyable. On a couple scenarios, you may find some map elements strange, but keep in mind that the Map Editor has its limitations and I could not introduce, for example, the multiple loss conditions that you see in, say, Shadow of Death.

I welcome commentary and especially bug reports. I have given it a thorough test play, so I hope there's nothing that's broken, but I'm sure there are a few typos here and there. Ultimately, the goal to have a complete Heroes Legends released by 2024, the 25th anniversary of this amazing game. Keep in mind, I tend to work in waves, so if you don't hear anything from me for months on end, it is all normal--I'll still be working diligently.
