First War Memorium
Submitted by Drogenhoernchen
- First War Memorium -
It is a darker time. Much of the magic and technology has faded from the world. Old hatred is flaring once again. Alliances break. Old lands are forgotten.
Territorial greed and hunger for power drive the races of the world. As the memory of former glory days fades, darker times dawn.
The remaining magicians and scholars of the Empire have become corrupt and power-hungry, just like their leaders. They protect their knowledge enviously, not sharing it with anyone, to strengthen their power.
Yet, old evil magik still exists. And its servants are once more wandering upon this earth, yet unnocticed by the wary mortal nations of the world.
Waiting to awaken...
- 6 races with unique style

- unique imports: 5 or more imports per faction; 1 unique or seldom model per faction
Humans: Wall Hub System
Dwarfs: Tunnel Network System
Orcs: Dragonrider off-map call-in
Demons: Terrain Corruption
|I wanted to create a story-driven experience, even though the game is multiplayer-focused. Every unit, every faction is supposed to have a background. The player is supposed to have certain associations with units.
Every unit is given a character. I really wanted to create that sense of uniqueness with every unit. Not only does each unit serve a diffenent role in the game, but it is supposed to have a wicked 'soul' to it.
This is why there is a unit spotlight below, delivering intel on many unit types both gameplaywise and storywise. This is supposed to further elaborate the units' uniqueness.
Unit Spotlight Dispatch 1
Unit Spotlight Dispatch 2
Unit Spotlight Dispatch 3
Unit Spotlight Dispatch 4 (Demon)
