Well this is a difficult one, I would have to go with stronghold however. I love magic :). Might is ok, don't get me wrong, but I am just partial to magic. So, hope you will replace a 'Might' town with one that utilizes magic :).

Though I love conflux I voted them for because its the only town that feels out of place here.

it must be obvious for you which to kick out now that conflux is the no 1 on both HC and RoundTable. nobody likes conflux for its concept.

I'd have to go with Conflux here, as well. A great town, but if one has to go, then there's no doubt that it should be Conflux...

I have'nt voted yet, but I have some requests first. Please leave the Fortress in. I have been using this town more and more and it fits in. Some say that Fortress is the weakest town, but now I disagree. Secondly, I, too, believe that the Conflux does'nt "fit" with HoMM3/WoG. This should be replaced with a Drow type town.

Sometimes I enjoy playing Conflux but I don't like Inferno too much. I know some people do, but I think it's the town I would miss least.

Only reason I wanted to make my case early on for Fortress is because some may think it's one of the weakest towns in HoMM3/WoG. Anymore it's the town I start out with. And the overall ambience fits with the game better than the Conflux does. And Inferno was my alternate coin flip toss along with the Conflux. It's okay, but still it's almost unfittable.
Sorry for sounding panicky EDN..... :-)

This is the easiest vote I've ever made. Conflux is completely out of place while managing to be boring, bland, and imbalanced. I'd be happy to get rid of it even if there was no replacement. (I'd save the phoenix and sprites though. :) )

@BB

Fortress has always been my favorite town in H3. I wouldn't buy into all the negative opinions that are thrown at it. It's creatures are a serious force to be meddled with when you factor in the amazing abilities of it's creatures. And if you take creature xp into account, then they are the most resiliant faction around. The perfect faction for the most diverse strategies. :)

Southwatch


The town sounds good but "Southwatch" seems like an odd name for a town type, and not really in keeping with the others. It's more like the name of a specific town than a type of town. All the others are types of castle or city...Castle, Stronghold, Fortress, Necropolis, etc. Perhaps you could call it "Fastness" (similar to Stonghold in meaning).

Anyway, if it's an evil town, probably it should have a more evil-sounding name. The Crags, maybe.

Shadowen's good. Lord's a bit boring. How about Dark Lord? ;) Or Shadow Lord? Or maybe Crag Lord...yeah! Well...something like that anyway.

EDN wrote:Creatures:

1. Will o Wisp - Magic Will o Wisp


Cool, but...how about naming it "Ghost Light" and "Will-o-the-Wisp" instead? I think the word "Magic" is too overused in most fantasy games and the definition of Will-o-the-Wisp says that it's the "phenomenon of ghostly lights" so "Ghost Light" kind of fits. Or you could call it "Fool's Fire" from the literal translation of it's name "ignes fatui" but that sounds a bit strange.

EDN wrote:2. Drow - Subverted Drow


That's okay but there may be a Drow town already being made (or maybe they gave up).

EDN wrote:3. Splinter Scats - Moor Cat


Cool names.

EDN wrote:4. Forest Woman - Mallenroh
5. Changeling - Reaper
6. Creeper - Rake
7. Murd Wraith - Skull Bearer


These all sound pretty good. :)

Mwellret = lizardman, whose ears are cut off? ouch.

but the stor and werebeast are relly paint-ish.

your Will-o-the-wisp has strange blue stripes on it, i always imagined wisps more as something like aow "northern light".

Well, the Stor is kinda a cool idea. Needs more work though. Right now, it kinda looks like Kenny from South Park.....

That koden reminds me an awful lot like the behemoth. I think the wisp looks pretty good, but it could stand to be a bit more wispy.
