    Look forward all you want, this isn't receiving any love whatsoever as of now, since Goblin is currently working on another project.

    Exactly, Murlocs are stupid, which makes the gameplay boring. Who wants to fight against a peasant (who is the default stupid unit to test your spells on)?

    Yes, but all of them are really ugly. Seriously, the Murlocs are of the lowest quality in the Warcraft III engine = a new ruining twist in your promising project. I really don't know how a guy like you, with great experience in aesthetics (2-d art works and stuff like that) can't realize that Murlocs are simply dull/bland/boring. Anyone has experienced them already, why don't you add something more original? I mean, nearly 10 years of modding Warcraft; this model is so known and overused.

    Why? These are the only races that exist? Why don't you try to add something more realistic, e.g. animals/humanoid-type (not sheep, something like Lycanthropes/ Warewolves/ Vampires or even simple animals like war bears/ hawks)? You could also have an additional race, of humanoid type, to make the game more "direct/alive/personal", e.g. some sort of a tuskar-type race (I say "type", so that I don't receive the comment "so Tuskar are less used than Murlocs in these 10 years of modding?!). There are many type of enemies you could add, just drop some eye on World of Warcraft or Lineage 2 and check monster-ideas you could add.

    You really have some cute small classes there, use something cute for the enemies too.

    Edit: Just dropped a second eye on the gameplay objective. Well, oh well, I thought this would be rpg-type. That's pity.

    I understand your point.. but I really want the murlocs.. there's no way i'm going to change them.

    Also this is a Hero defense game, with small RPG features..

    I know you do, it's your project anyway, but it will be public-shared, so you should be less stubborn (with the good meaning of the word, not to offend you) and look up what public wants the most. So, I have nothing more to say than Good luck with the project :)

    Thank you!..

    and concerning the share to the public you are right.. but I won't change the murloc until I release the beta and I have a 75% of members that tells me to change it :p

    but concerning the items and hero spells etc.. I'm all open for your suggestions..

    I could give you a heads-up in hero spells, just let me know what you need and how you would like the general outfit of the game to look like, so that I can properly adjust the concept of the spells.

    New item revealed.

    This small pie, is the only meal Big Tim will sell. made out of a secret Ogre recipe.. this pie won't be made often in game. since it will make your hero grow bigger of 5% each time he eats it. But, only each 30 min the pie could be bought from Big Tim.

    Edit 2 = New item revealed again.
    Spell book used by the Loarderun's paladin, this magic object strangly got into the hand of Wako Ali for unknown reasons. When activated, this book will burst a massive shock wave around him, healing all the allis close to the holder.

    I think he already knows that, I've seen him type it right in another post

    this idea is very nice, I love goblins, and murlocs are good enemies for them, about the same height and such, I'm thinking it'll be a tropical terrain, with lot's of water, either way, you went very much in detail with your description, and I love it, hope you will finish it, cause I'll be sure to play it, +rep for this idea, and all the work you already put into it

    Oh right.. for those you doesn't know the general look of Goblin's Tale map.. since I removed the terrain (yes i'm remaking it) here's a few reference pic of the old terrain.

    The theme will be the same, same look, same fealing, will use the same doodads.
    It's just the structure of the terrain is really bad right now for a Hero Defense type of map.
    I have to make a bigger open space in the village for the figthing, I have to reduce the shrub spam I created, I have to change the general structure of the village, so that way we fight on the ground and not in the air (because to get to the village you have to go by rope bridges.

    anyway.. look at the first post to see the screenshots.

    The Orb - you stated it to be "High Elven" yet it's red, really unfitting. So it should either be blue or renamed to something like "Blood Elven Magic Orb" or "Blood Elf Magic Orb" or something.
