    What was interesting is he had no major roles, dialogue or anything untill I gave him that bio

    Although you did write the bio, the theme of the "cold crusader" was always on our minds, you just put into words what Blake has been talking about for awhile, Ghrenis was always supposed to be this crusader who went to the northlands, saw half his fellow crusaders meet their end either on the cold and perilous journey on in ambushes on the way and then eventually came to lose his mind such that instead of proclaiming himself to be the king of a defeated city or something similar which anyone else in his position would likely do he simply slaughtered every living inhabitant of the city.

    Anyway this hero is meant as a major tank and he also buffs the hell outta any friendly melee unit in his proximity, should make some missions very challenging

    Yea, I was thinking the same thing, beating this guy alone would not be a breeze, beating this guy in a group, well that would be a damn challenge

    Blake had informed me that he would have the amulet of spell immunity in his possession at all times....so it gets harder...

    It does, but what it ultimately amounts to is using aerial and ranged units to attack him, I think with enough siege weapons attacking him from afar he would be done rather quickly

    I agree, that could work, but he can also attack flying unit, after all he comes with an orb of darkness or something similar

    I've already discussed this with a few people, that's why I gave the hero the abiltiies he has, those abilities seem to make him very able to both boost others around him as well as fight effectively on his own, I mean I could make him even stronger but that would be too much, especially because you have to go against him several times, and in these chapters he and his troops are really all that stand between you and victory

    @Lord Aiden
    you trying to purposely piss me off or are you actually trying to get feedback? cause Im getting sick of all these shots randomly thrown at me because of something I've done in the past that should be forgotten by now

    I'm sorry if you feel we're taking jabs at you, but I was sincerly looking for feedback this time, I even had convos with other team members about this. Razor was suggesting he comes with immolition or some sort of shield ability to prevent him from getting melee rushed, and Rem suggested giving him an ability that would deal 300 damage to all melee attackers around him to deter that strategy, mostly people were concerned with him being the target of multiple melee units or flying units

    Just to be creative you could give him an ability that checks if he has 4 or more hostile melee units surrounding him and then if so allows him to do 2x or 3x his base damage to them

    this guy will be like nemesis from resident evil, he will basically dog you for several missions. each time u beat him dioneve will appear and revive him and from what blake tells me hell be tough as nails, especially if youre not playing on easy

    Thought he was only meant to appear in like 2 chapters, but hey that's really interesting...you wanna develop the concept further I mean thats whatt he thread is for (and Blake said hes all for it)

    Yea he's like the nemesis in certain missions (btw people, we still need a good model, that abyss knight model sucks, so plz search for a better model)

    This guy is Dioneve's Khight if that's what you wanna call it, and there's also more backstory which will be revealed in the missions, also if Blake frees up early expect the test missions to be a real challenge, we're not going easy this time
