Heroes of Might and Magic V  → Haven

by Ubisoft

Untitled Document



“For Honor, Order and Duty”

  • Aka: The Knights of the Light
  • Associated colors: light blue, white and gold
  • Worship: Elrath, the Dragon of Light, and its first servants - the Angels
  • Core philosophy: “Law & Order” rather than “Good & Mercy”
  • Country / kingdom: The Holy Griffin Empire
  • Capital city: Talonguard
  • Key symbols: The “holy sun”, the griffin
  • Description: A feudal Holy Empire, the strongest realm of AshanIt is a kingdom of medieval knights and monks, with prevalent access to “Light / Life” Magic and “Angelic” elite troops. The Empire chose the Griffin as its symbol. Tamed griffins are used by the nobility as “flying hounds”, and sometimes as mounts. On the battlefield, Haven troops are known to be extremely resistant, relying more on the mighty power of brutal force than on the delicate art of magic. The heroes of the Haven faction will develop skills and abilities to support the hurricane of steel and fury that will rush into the enemy's rank.


The origins

3 YSD: Birth of the Falcon Empire

Falcon the Great unifies the human kingdoms (founding the empire that will one day become the Haven faction). A prophecy tells that the Falcon line shall endure as long as the world does.

28-40 YSD: Wars of Fire - First great demon incursion.

Most of the Angels perish during these wars. The survivors take refuge in the Falcon Empire, which is increasingly turned away from the Dragon of Air – Sylath, and toward the Dragon of Light.

48 YSD: the Falcon Empire becomes the “Holy” Falcon Empire – Founding of the Free Cities of the East

Emperor Brian Falcon gives absolute power to the Church of the Dragon of Light. The Human kingdom is renamed “Holy Falcon Empire”. Dissent grows among many citizens who resent being forced to abandon their faith in Sylath. Many will leave the Empire's territory to found the Free Cities of the East.

The modern ages

843 YSD: 4 th Eclipse - Falcon's Last Flight

The Demons storm the capital of the Falcon Empire and massacre the royal house. As soon as the Demons are repelled, fighting breaks out as the various noble houses attempt to claim the throne. Duke Ivan of Griffin conquers the bloody crown. The Empire is renamed “Holy Griffin Empire”.

951 YSD: 5 th Eclipse - War of the Gray Alliance

Demon armies are confronted by a combined force of Haven Knights allied with two other factions. Emperor Alexei Griffin pursues the Demons into the very underworld, and is killed. His soul is rescued by a mysterious and legendary knight known as Tieru, and bound up in an artifact called the Heart of the Griffin. Alexei's son Nicolai, aged 6, ascends the Imperial throne.

969 YSD: 6 th Eclipse - Queen Isabel's War

An eclipse not forecast on any calendar grips the Empire in a panic. The Demons emerge in force and march towards Haven's capital.

This war will be known as Queen Isabel's War and is the topic of Heroes V 's campaign.

Actually the humans in HoMM 5 and 4 are good only if the player know how to use them IN HoMM 3 they were the BASIC castle for anyone since all the units were AT LEAST above average for their respective levels and more Lev 7 Strongest Lev 6 second strongest beaten only by the Dread Knight Level 5 pretty sucky zealot compared to other creatures, etc...... BUT my point is that in HoMM2 the human castle was the second to worst IT SUCKED with those stupid peasants pathetic Archers and those sucky cavaliers and decent palladin ONLY if they were lower on levels since a single dragon COULD"VE trashed like 4-5 of them in the same time TALK ABOUT BALANCE

the haven is like every homm before it the strongest faction..in the right hands of course the paladin+archangel with good morale make a fearsome combination often my knights win against other factions with little to no casualties with this combination

[quote:b26317b39c="Orfinn"] They could use the sun-sign from the indians(if im correct)
To bad the nazis misused, sothed and ruined the sign >:( [/quote:b26317b39c]

IIRC the nazis took the swastika from the vikings for which it was a symbol of happiness and good luck (although we could be talking about two different things).

isn't that "holy sun" thing just a modified Zia Pueblo sun? It's on New Mexico's flag.

I was a bit worried in the beginning that these would look like anime weirdos, but after seen good screenshots of them they are perfect.

When did an angel look like that? Was there a pervious angel you thought was anime, or did you worry this one might be?

Orfinn at 2005-10-26 14:35 wrote:
The angels are sexy, almost the most perfect angel i ever seen in any HOMM game.
I only miss one thing on the angels, halos both versions (unupg & upg) should have ahlos, arent they even more holy than the Inquisitor or what?
I think the angels are pretty well balanced too. They return to your nearest town when you use one of their special abilities before they all die,but then you cant ressurect allied troops.So its a matter of using the right tactic in different situations.
And im glad those male macho-angels got replaced by female angels.The new angels are as sent from heaven, fresh!
And they are NOT anime like at all! Glad these angels arent freaking pointy faced,big eyed wirdos with a body smaller than their head =D

Cool town. I just hope that the angels are not so almighty like in heroes 3.

I dont understand why there's no screenshots or briefings of academy town?

Inquisitor is an inciteful character, takes the concept to a whole new level (less Swordplay more Godplay)

3d adventure map and towns are great.

Angel look awesome in Heroes V..

Something else I just noticed - They once again made the cavaliers very short square fellows like in HoMM3. I seriously doubt a mounted, fierce warrior will be that short.

sorry, not curse but cross

Yeah! The Militria Guart is great.
Angel and Inquisitor - they has curse? What' s up?

The Angles do have halos, just not the same. Their's are fool of jewish elements for some reason.

I like the fact that Haven is not "the good boys" of the game. They are ruthless landlords, constraining their type of faith to others, hideously arrogant, and repelling for any neutral good player.

ok I understand everything thanks !!!

CloudRiderX at 2005-09-02 18:19 wrote:
Yeah, especially since they are human. The Angels should have halos, if any.
Cleglaw at 2005-09-02 15:55 wrote:
I think the halo which on priest's head, isn't great. I've never seen a thing like that before in all fantastic games. Halo is not a good innovation.

Yeah, and I heard that a battle between 2 stacks of cerberi took forever in one of the gameplay videos. Many people changed their minds about the small field because the battles were long as it was.

The language filter is still a bit buggy. We'll take care of that! :)

Eh,why did some text of my comment turn into stars?

Orfinn at 2005-09-02 11:59 wrote:
In one of the videos it was shown that the haven hero was the k***ht cl***.Maybe change the cl*** from K***ht to Cleric or Crusader would be a good choice.Or change the unit name from K***ht to Crusader and let the K***ht hero cl*** stay.

The more stacks of creatures the bigger the battlefield.I guess it will be similar like this: 1-3 stacks = small, 4-5 = medium and 6-7 = large battlefield .

I don`t understand why battlefield is such small?? that will be silly game if ubisoft don`t change battlefield

If knight is a creature type - what will replace the character class?

The squire-knight upgrade is a good choice that i'd never have thought of (too easy a connection), but my favorite artistic take on the peasant will always be the HOMMII peasant.

I think it's actually Cleric/Priest...we'll see in the beta test.
