1. Tanir. And his best achievement was stoning Archibald. Well not exactly stoning, but turning him to stone :P

2. Lord Haart. He was killed by Gryphonheart, then raised as a Death Knight, then put down again.

3. The lands that were a subject of dispute between Erathia and Avlee, eventually the Kingdom of Harmondale was created there.

4. Brandis Fairweather

5. Sir Charles Quixote

6. I assume you're talking about the recruitable dragons from MM8. Then Flamdring is the weakest red dragon.

7. Corak

8. You really messed that one up. If you were referring to Bracaduun, then Tarnum, I suppose.

1) Well Michael if Ashan counts.
2) Xenofex. Or Xaeron(technically half devil though)
3) Depends. Well first he replaced Roland as king. If that doesn't count then he shifted Deya leadership to himself by deposing Nimbus I think/
4) Baa
5) Depends. Raising full scale war I guess(twice). Developing necromancer guild, stitching together couple artifacts although those are means rather than achievements.
6) Wilburn Humphrey
7) Xaeron. Got beaten by Gelu.
8) Zog

Zog is an Ogre? I thought he was a barbarian Elf. Well, I say elf because in MM5, Barbarians had blue skin like elves.

I mean this guy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k053BskR4k4
Also in mm5 (also similar character in homm 1,3,4) is Yog - half genie.

Guess question was how Xaeron ultimately fell. If not, then yes, he had disagreement with four marauding lords of harmondale, in his colony.

1. Michael, Gabriel, Uriel, Lucifer :P
2: Abaddon, Asmodeus, Azazel, Baal...
3: Morglin Ironfist as a "true" king of Enroth and later Nimbus as a head of Necromacer Guild in Deyja
4: Baa
5: Which Sandro? We have at least 2 of them in saga.
6: Willbur Humphrey
7: Lucifer Kreegan III who in the ended killed all Kreegan forces left in Antagarich.
8: Shrek :P

Sorry but Megadragon from MM7 is weaker then Morcarack - (s)he has no resists at all, while Morcarack has some.
As for killing them - both can be killed in same way, no matter which level you have.

tress wrote:Xeron (technically half devil though)

According to his biography he was an efreet.

Yog from MM5 is just a (human) barbarian.
He is not a half genie in any case - people in MM3-5 have blue skin (Kastore, Ellinger, Corak) which was common on Terra or Xeen.

Half genie thing is only "feature" of Yog from HoMM3 (Yog from HoMM1, if we even consider him as a canon figure, probably is not the same character as Yog from H3).

But if you look at humans, they mostly have human skin tones. Nowhere does it says that Ellinger is human, but Kastore, Seymor, and the Elf King in MM4 all have blue skin, or with grayish tones. So that tells me that Blue Humanoids are Elven in nature.

I think any random crusader do that. After all that's their job in fantasy settings.

antipaladin wrote:2. tarnum son is? and what is he doing?

Wearjack. He's a king of Barbarian tribes on Axeoth.

antipaladin wrote:3. who is forrad dar?

An NPC in MM9 which you can't dismiss.
Oh, and Temur Lang lackey.

antipaladin wrote:4. name a tricky god (and i dont mean a dragon).

Loki :P

antipaladin wrote:5. while not kreegans themselfs, radily allied with the demons, name two races.

I don't understand that question.
Kreegans were called devils, not demons.

antipaladin wrote:6. a race that apeard only and stricly in MM 8 in an original way and not even hinted in any other h0mm or mm game.

Which one? Serpentmen from Dagger Wound Island or Wererats or Ravenmen from Air Plane or Salamanders from Fire Plane?

antipaladin wrote:7. a mad king?

One ruled Erathia in Revolt of the Beastmasters.

You asked about trickster god, you didn't mention if he should be from MM universe or not. :P

antipaladin wrote:5.ill rephrase : name two native races that joined forces with the kreegans and the demons

Efreet and magogs... however when efreets were allies magogs probably were slaves.

antipaladin wrote:7.while he was mad , i was reffering to an obviously more mad ...spazz maddicuz..

Spazz Maticus if all. Again, you asked about a mad king, you didn't mention any futher details.
