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:
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..

was established in early 1999 after the merge of two humble HoMM fan sites, Celestial Heavens and HoMM III Unleashed. Owners Daemon, Lady Darkness and Belenus put together a decent collection of maps and strategies, and later claimed to have found the Armageddon's Blade cheat codes first. After his two partners left for other projects, Belenus left the site in hiatus while he worked on a custom campaign.
The site was reopened in March 2001 by Angelspit with a new design and an active news section that would later become the site's trademark. Later came Karyll, who had a brand new Heroes IV site in the works. He was joined by several contributors who can still be seen from time to time today, and in 2005, the transition was made away from Gamespy's "Forumplanet" server to the site you can see today.
The new Celestial Heavens site has since been mentioned in sites such as GameSpot, Slashdot, Blue's News, RPGDot and GameSpy. Its mission is to provide all the information Heroes players need, producer related news and files to enhance the fans' gaming experience, at no extra cost to the Community.
In 2011, Angelspit handed over control of the site to Kalah, to focus on real-life issues. The new management remained determined that the Celestial Heavens site should be a stalwart helper of the M&M Community, independent from the official sites.
In 2017 Kalah also decided to focus on other aspects of his life and handed the active running of the site to Pol and the other staff members.
