Dear Heroes,

After weeks of advises, Dev Team give some news about next Tales for Heroes VII. It seems players want more information about Naga and the Lotus Empire, The Griffin family, and Sandro, the famous Necromancer.

We now have to wait more income from the Spy Master :)

Dear Heroes,

Some days ago, dev's team shows to the community bios and portrait of stronghold's hall of Heroes.
Some of them are present in the campaign, and all will be available in skirmish or multiplayer maps.
You can discover or rediscover them: Yog, Ishi, Drakon and Anga.

Dear Heroes,

Finally, The Dev team has revealed the line up for Sylvan's faction, with all basic and elite units.
For those whom haven't seen the news, Sylvan faction is composed of:
- Hunter & Master Hunter
- Dryad & Oak Dryad
- Pixie & Sprite
- Druid & Druid Elder
- Moon Doe & Sun Deer
- Blade Dancer & Blade Master

It is not a surprise, players are quite upset about characters' design. Some comments consider that Moon Doe is too cute to go on the battlefield.
Others are quite upset about the choice of having women as Druids, event the lore justifies this choice.
The main criticisms concern the lack of muscles for Blade Master.

And you, what is your opinion about Sylvan's units ?

Dear Councillors,

After giving us Sylvan's line up some days ago, Dev Blog finally reveal Might & Magic's Heroes for Sylvan.
Might Heroes are Avenger, ranger or Warden, suit with light armor and a bow.
Magic Heroes are Thornsower, Mystic and Starsinger, designed with cape and a spear.

Numerous players' comments those artworks, and many dislike helmets or cape design. Maybe Ubisoft will change those aspects during the 3D creation...
And you, do you consider those design matches well for Sylvan's faction ?

See more on the Sylvan Magic Heroes page and Sylvan Might Heroes page.

On Monday, we are attempting to migrate to a new server, so we can give our site a much-needed update. On that date, the Round Table forums will be set to read-only. Inactive users will be pruned and we will try to upgrade the forum to phpBB3.

We don't know how long the downtime will be. Minutes, hours, days ... we don't know. Wish us luck.

Edit: We're half up!

Ladies, Gentlemen - dear readers. For many years now, we have been trying to update our site, giving it new software that can stand the test of time. Something that can be supported by today's server providers and also more easily be updated when we need to in the future. After sterling work from our house-trained gremlins the last several weeks, we are well underway.

Our Round Table forums are up and running.

Ubisoft are launching a second beta round next week. They are also giving away beta codes at random intervals, but they are snapped up quickly so you'll have to pay close attention to their Facebook account if you're going to get hold of one.

In this round, you will be able to play Haven and Academy, as before, and also Dungeon and Sylvan. There are 4 different maps.

For full info about this beta round, see this page.

If you're playing the beta, please pay special attention to the bugs that still exist and report them to the developer team. What we need at this point is not merely players trying the game, but actively contributing to its improvement. You can also post your general impressions in our forum.
