    I can add that the "Special AI" includes a special battle system where the different cities fight battles over the world.

    To make it short LoA is a MORPG; Kill creeps, level up your hero, roleplay as your character, live the life of your character which you can save on the net with saving codes.

    Alowan: (Edited your post from MMORPG to MORPG, since it aint massive)

    Sounds so cool! Everything i've dreamed for! I was planning to make same kind of project too, but looks like some ppl have made it already. I'm waiting :) Features list sounds very good, but only 14 heroes sounds a bit bad, but we'll see :)

    Edit: Damn i read the features again.. damn it sounds good! It has everything i was planning =D

    It would be easier if I could dl the map from somewhere, but i'll try to catch you. I tried to search but didn't find the map anywhere. btw there were lots of spelling mistakes in your web site, i hope the actual doesn't have same probs :)

    Ok :) I hope u do something with the web site. I will wait for the open beta then, i hope i don't have to wait very much. :p I watched the gameplay movies, they looked great, though quality was a bit bad on some scenes it was hard to recognise the important things. Please gimme more info about heroes, cities and such if possible.

    Yeah alowan and i will probly sit down some time and go over the website...

    Oh well what do you wanna know? =) All the finished heroes and skills are listed on website (i think, they might have made more than listed there) the story about the world can also be found there... Once the open beta is released, i will host LoA with "roleplay only", meaning everybody has to play their character. This will probably be the funniest way to play LoA ;)

    So you have finished only 4 heroes so far? Yeah i found storyline, but i will read it tomorrow. Roleplaying is actually very nice in some good RPG maps, some RPG maps support RPn better than some actual RPG or MMORPGs which is very surprising. Seems like you've made effort with the RP side too. :) It would be nice to see some other jobs too, not just adventurers and fighters. Something like farmers, sailors and such, like LoaP, but i quess that's not the point of LoA, just wanted to mention. :)

    LoaP is an, if youll excuse me, stupid noob map which i would never even think of comparing with LoA ^^

    But yea good idea, we should have many different kinds of jobs.... Right now we have no "jobs" at all, only different hero classes and different quests.

    But in the future, you will probly be able to join the military and get gold for working.

    I agree, LoaP is bad map, but the idea is very good. But jobs aren't interesting after one test and there's no balance. Basicly it becomes boring very soon. And my point was that i'd like to see a map with nice careers and interesting jobs.

    I believe it's a hard or impossible to add some job things in this phase, but it was just an idea. Army sounds quite nice, if there will be some nice recon missions and massive fight =D

    Does that use Darky's hero save code, or do you have a system of your own? You should upload it if its of high quality.

    the elves are a unique kind we made up, all races have their own story.. comming in the next chapters.

    we made our own save system, but i dont think we will realese it..

    B.net map size limit is 4 mb, so it wont be over 4mb
