Come join us on Friday, June 19 at 7PM Eastern/4PM (ie 11PM UTC+0 or 1AM UTC+2)

Important info! Tim's site changed, now you will find everything, on his new site dungeonbyte.com. Including his latest demo update.

If you would like to speak with Tim about Aeolwyn's Legacy, you are invited to join him at Discord.

At this moment itch.io wasn't accesbile but I'm too excited. Check the demo download link, let see excerpt below.

There's a new build of the demo up that fixes some bugs.  It will probably be the last of the demo build for a while as I'm building out the world terrain for Chapter One!  Here's a preview video: (don't mind getting stuck on the roof of the tavern

There's some pretty exciting stuff about the new world map.  Firstly, it's huge.  the full size is 16km x 8km. Secondly, it will be a seamless world.  You'll be able to walk from one end of the world to the other without a single level load (though you may get a hiccup once in a while).  I didn't think I was going to be able to support that, but I've got some tech from Procedural Worlds that's working great.

"An Epic Competitive Board Game Inspired by RPG Video Game Classics. For 1-4 Players."

The game is already funded at Kickstarter smile teeth Of course, you can still join. Check in following videos what is that about.

Need to say, that game was first released a year ago, at our small CZ market. So it's well playtested. And now it's being released again, worldwide.

If you would like to test it, you can check it at Tabletopia, see links at the bottom.

Maps are random, pick your hero, and in the end, if you survive, you have the honour to fight the dragon. This will take you time to learn ;)


The game looks great, for US$ 95+ (6kg) box you can get also figurines to paint, for a bit more they offer a STL files to print them yourself at 3D printer. And you can't die here, which comes with a price.

 

Euthia: Torment of Resurrection is a competitive strategic role-playing board game set in an open fantasy world. Players choose one of five heroes and uncover a modular map full of quests, precious natural resources, and dangerous enemies. The heroes gain experience, learn unique skills, obtain new equipment and treasure, and explore places of elemental power.

It has been a long time coming, but we are finally trying to set up our own Youtube channel for Celestial Heavens. This can be used for news, chats, live streaming, walkthroughs, map strategies and more.

To get this thing off the ground, we need somebody willing to create contents for it. So if you have the ability and time to create videos (long or short) for us, why not give us a shout? You can get in touch with us by commenting on this story.

Aeolwyn's Legacy - Update#4

There's a new teaser from Brrapp Games (Tim Lang's studio) about Aeolwyn's Legacy. Not a new demo (demo sits here) just a teaser. For indie game, quite nice. :)

 

Heros 3 Assistent for HotA

It's small and very nifty utility to calculate spell damage, fights, artifacts and guardians (in/out of caches) on the map. And some other thingies. So, in the end, this a treasure mostly for mapmapkers.

h3assist

Visit their homepage to watch their instructional videos and download.

App made by "The Xenofex". You can also subscribe to his YT channel. There are some more Heroes 3 interesting videos.

 

HotA Team send out a teaser about new Factory unit Dreadgnought.

Dreadnought can be considered the magnum opus of the Factory's engineers and artificers. It is a key unit of its armed forces, the cornerstone of its arsenal, and also an indispensable assistant in construction and heavy lifting.

More information about it here, at HC. Still not a word about Factory faction release date.

 

Creature Quest

Current version of the game is 62.20.1507 after update 1.16

  • Max limit for shards in guild storage during Guild Wars set to 7mil
  • Max level upped to 700
  • Various bug fixes (# Fixed an issue when you were not receiving your reward after completing Grand Wish Quest. # Fixed an issue where claiming reward would consume stamina. # No more any creature can display like 5D.)

Doest it helped to fix Guild Wars? No, not enough. But it's a small improvement in the rightdirection. It stopped that hellish growing only in the end.

Just to remember, previous update 1.15 from Oct 2019 introduced galleons sharing limitation: "In order to maintain fair play, there will now be a level 40 requirement for sharing Galleons in a Guild." Full log is is here.

 

Might & Magic Heroes: Era of Chaos

Ubisoft finally released new content, where you can play for Yog and Dracon. And got them both. Dunno with eacts levels now, so Yog starts with 74 and Dracon with 84, probably till 92.

The game got small enhancements, which are:

  • Nerfed Solmyr
  • New artifact "Live Hawkeye" granting you some limited magic dmg resistance
  • New spell slot for heroes, where you can add one speel of your choice
  • New spell Prayer and Spell Bookshelf, for getting spell tokens for your own spells
  • Guild messengers giving your Skillstones and day bonus or teleport to already revealed place. Only for the time of St. Patrick holiday.
  • Minor other fixes, allegedly also text fixes

Wasn't able to notice them anywhere, the overall text quality is still tragic.

 

CANCELLED E3 2020 - Los Angeles

As expected, due to an ongoing pandemic of SARS-CORONAVIRUS-2, this event was cancelled. As a replacement there could be call for an online meeting, which will be streamed. Most likely several of them.

What is clear is, that this year, you are worry free about travelling to Los Angeles.

Attention Might & Magic fans,

This is Super Goober and, if you've played Might & Magic VI for as long as I have, at some point, you had to have stopped to admire the art and visual style of the game, particularly, the weapons. The game had some of the most beautiful weapons I had ever seen, and even the most basic of them were pretty. Well, imagine seeing a real sword, built in a forge owned by a real blacksmith. I'm talking about this sword:

warrior sword by malfunit dce1egx

Would you like to see a real-life version of it? This is the Warrior Sword from Might & Magic VI: The Mandate of Heaven, and it just so happens that I know a blacksmith who make swords, and he streams it from Twitch.TV.

In fact, if you want to go check him out and see the process of making swords and knives, here is his Twitch Channel.

I've been talking with this man about making an exact replica of the Warrior Sword. He has agreed to do this for us if we can raise enough money to cover the costs of making and retrieving the sword. I live in Idaho and the blacksmith lives in Georgia. I have a launched a GoFundMe campaign to make this possible and we need all the help we can get.

The blacksmith has given me an estimate of how much the sword is worth, and he said it will be somewhere between $2500-$3000. Then add another $1000-$2000 for air travel expenses. Not cheap! But when will we ever get the chance to do something crazy like this? Not only that, I am in contact with a few of the former New World Computing people, including Tim Lang (lever designer of MM6), David Mullich, Paul Romero (composer), Shelly Garcia (Heroes 2 artist) and even Jon Van Caneghem himself. I think they would be delighted to see something like this come to life.

An actual sword from Might and Magic VI...imagine how amazing that would be!


 Pol: I wish you much luck with that Super Goober, you will damn need it! This is both Might&Magic and crazy, seeing that sword 'alive' would be wonderful! Hopefully it wouldn't just sit on your ledge and travel with you around the globe a bit..
