Thank you the kind words:) Perhaps its only the non upgraded form, the upgraded acolyte should have better clothes. Anyway, any ideas on the upgraded acolyte's name, if the acolytes will have an upgrade at all?

Anyway Dr Slash's crossbowmen looks nice, its like a Darth Vader in HoMMII:) Blends into the knight lineup nicely, but still I can feel the difference. I think the upgraded crossbowmen's armor is too smooth when compared to the swordsman's or cavalry's full plate armor.

Heya! I know I've been absent for the past few weeks, but I've been very busy with my University studies. I have some time this week, and plan to do something creative. I was planning on finishing my Acolyte, but I'm not sure if it's necessary now, as thgergo has made a version of his own. I think I will still finish mine this weekend, and then you can decide which direction you want to take.

I know that The Succession Wars is heavily drawing inspiration from Might and Magic 6, which matches really well with Heroes II in every aspect. I love a lot of the new creatures for The Succession Wars, especially looking at the Tribal, Death Knight, and Anubite. These all draw inspiration from MM6, and look incredible. The problem I have with the thgergo's Acolyte, is that it removes all resemblance to the Might and Magic 6 Acolyte.

H3SW: General Graphics discussion - Page 4 LqKVisA

If the argument is that he looks too ragged and frail for level 2, that is fair. It is possible to represent an old wanderer, which still beholds a lot of magical prowess, and I don't see a problem with this. It would, however, be possible to make him seem a bit more sturdy and powerful if needed, without going completely off concept.

Btw, thgergo, about the name: In Might and Magic 6, the Acolyte's three versions are called: Follower of Baa, Mystic of Baa, and Acolyte of Baa. In my opinion, the best substitute name for the Acolyte would be Mystic.

I feel that it would be best to keep the consept of the old, magical wanderer of MM6.

Last note: it is polite to give credit, if you edit or use material from someone else, hovewer bad it may be. Wink Good job, though.

Edit: Spelling.

Yes, the resemblance of a traveling cultist is a key. It will even be featured in new campaigns. I am curious what you have in mind.

For now, here is my shot for the Satyr.

Sorry for that, I just wanted to "upgrade" it first time, make it better. Embarassed Feel free to recycle anything, I've just bored with it for 2- hours Smile

I agree with the MM6 inspiration, although I have never played it so far... Its wise to include them, as its important to include that in this mod campaigns.
My opinions about the acolyte:
- We have already and old mage in the Wizard lineup. Does the acolyte have to be an old one? A lvl 2 unit should be too old in my opinion.
- I agree with Orzie on the colors of the Dervish lineup, on page 4. I feel if we put the acolyte from MM6 as it is, it wont fit in enough into the lineup.

Anyway everything is only up to our free time.

Still we have to save it as something resembling a cult member. The sandals, the short staff and turban should help.

I made a mix-up of the names earlier. The last upgrade of the Follower of Baa is called the Fanatic of Baa, while the Acolyte of Baa is the first version of the Cleric of Baa.

The definition of Acolyte, according to the Oxford Dictionary:
"1. A person assisting a priest in a religious service or procession."
"1.1 An assistant or follower"

The definition of Mystic, according to the Oxford Dictionary:
"a person who seeks by contemplation and self-surrender to obtain unity with or absorption into the Deity or the absolute, or who believes in the spiritual apprehension of truths that are beyond the intellect."

Acolyte may point more towards a church ritual helper, and not a wandering cultist. However, it can also imply a devout follower, which fits our purpose well enough. It may be a good idea to change the name to Cultist, where the upgraded version is called Fanatic (Alternatives: Devotee, Zealot). Otherwise, Mystic is a suitable upgrade to Acolyte. I feel that the drawback of Cultist/Fanatic, is that it removes a bit of the magical focus of the creature, whereas Acolyte/Mystic fits well into the ranged caster role. Thoughts?

To address your points, thgergo
I assume you meant to write: "A lvl 2 unit shouldn't be too old (...)." I don't think that a creatures age has much to do with it's power in a fantasy game. An old man could be a weak commoner, a great sorcerer, or anything in between. The Acolyte's role in the faction is a ranged level 2 creature. The ranged ability lets him shoot his foes from a distance, but makes him rather weak in melee. An old(er) man with some magical abilities fits well into this role.

In relation to the Acolyte, the biggest advantage of an old man is that he displays great devotion and full integration into the cult. An fanatic old man in ragged clothes, who breathes to serve a cult is a scary thought - you don't know how far he would go, as he would gladly die for the "greater purpose". On the other hand, a young man represents naivety and can be highly impressionable. He does, however, not represent the same willful ignorance, and doesn't represent a completely ingrained and brainwashed cultist. It would be possible to make the unupgraded version into a middle aged man with a brown beard, and make the ugraded version older.

The Acolyte's ragged clothes symbolize his disregard for himself, and his devotion for a higher power. In addition to this, shaving your beard is "illegal" in a lot of religions, and as such has become somewhat of a symbol of religious devotion.

About Dervish lineup colors: that is a question of color adjustments and fixing proportions, and has little to do with the concept of the Acolyte. He can easily be fitted into the lineup.



Edit:
Dr. Slash, that Pirate looks amazing! The Crossbowman looks really good as well. You might want to consider moving the head a pixel to the right, and make it slightly less blurry/shadowy in some places. (Not that I could make it any better, lol)

I also suggest looking up what Dervish is, to better understand the acolyte concept.
A dervish... is someone treading a Sufi Muslim ascetic path or "Tariqah", known for their extreme poverty and austerity. (c) Wikipedia
H3SW: General Graphics discussion - Page 4 LpjkOU1
Regarding Acolyte and Mystic versus Cultist and Fanatic. I think either works, but personally I prefer Acolyte and Mystic.

Wow, these new ones look really awesome, both the shore and underground. Just the assets make a great difference between the two, even though it is the same terrain. The shore assets will work great with some pirate and treasure seeking/sea exploring maps, while the underground cliffs remind of Heroes 3 a lot (in a good way).

Amazing work, Uhm. This will serve well for v0.8. I suggest trying to darken the mountains a little and look what happens.

Actually the sand terrain (like some others) need re-packing. I hope to find time for it soon.

Amazed to see the new underground mountains! The only thing I'd like to see in them is a more rare placement (I mean, the stalagmites are a little too frequent)
