Paul Anthony Romero will on the 24. October be playing themes from the HoMM-series in Toruń, Poland. I am going with my friend all the way from Denmark to experience Mr. Romero playing the amazing songs from the games I love.

Is anyone else going to the concert? Smile Tickets are still on sale here: http://www.eventim.pl/bilety.html?affiliate=PLE&doc=artistPages%2Ftickets&fun=artist&action=tickets&erid=1486482&includeOnlybookable=true&x10=1&x11=Heroes

Also I might be lucky enough to have a quick chat with Mr. Romero and if so, is there anything I should ask him regarding for instance H2 or H3SW? Smile

I would love to be there! I've got some exams, but after a while I don't care about them! Is there any other possiblity of buying tickets? Beacause I see only "Zbyt mało czasu na dostawę" - too less time for delivery" Crying

Oh damn, I didn't see that... Maybe check out the facebook event (Link) for it. I think some guy called Seweryn Kloska wrote he had tickets for it in the comment section.

Sir Albe, you can mention that you participate in a fan project combining Heroes 2 and Heroes 3 with references to Might and Magic 6, and even show Paul the battle promo screenshot if he looks interested, but Paul is a professional and he will never say that your project is bad, despite we don't have enough presentative materials currently.

He is really unlikely to make music for us and should not be asked about it. He could do it only for people he knows for a long time, and still unlikely.

Besides, congrats with your tickets! Too bad Paul will never come to Russia, I'd love to have a talk with him.

Great. I am also a bit unsure whether Paul cares much about the games and mods, but somehow one of the best (but maybe simplest) things about our mod in my opinion is the H2 atmosphere (graphics, sound, music and over-all feeling of H2), so Paul might be glad to know that especially the music is very appreciated Smile

Enjoy the piano songs from Paul Romero, it's going to be good for ears by an elite pianist like him.

Congratulations, Uhm! It's so cool to know two of us will be attending the concert. I wish you best of luck and to have fun together with Sir Albe on the venue. Please let us know about your impressions here in this thread after you return home. The collective selfies are highly appreciated, especially if you get lucky to make them with both of you and Mr. Romero at the same time Very Happy

That would be gold and very valuable for the project memoirs. Wink

Our trinity (Me, Albe and his very good friend Frederick) had met just before concert and catched a memorial photo with SW logo Smile It was the first time, I was speeking English with somebody from outside the Poland, but we've quickly found a common language. We didn't know anybody at a concert, still many people recognised us Very Happy It was fantastic, that people are so enthusiastic about our Mod. I was even able to talk with gentleman from Polish Press Agency. Probably he will ask me for a little help – who knows, maybe thanks to him we will be able to connect with more Heroes fans from Poland  Wink . We were disputing on Witch's line up and it's inspirations, so I hope soon I will be able to introduce our thoughts. Cool

I must say, I'am very pleased with the whole concert  Happy  It was consisting of three sonatas – build on mixed variations of themes from all Heroes. In the beginning, I was just trying to recognise particular themes – it was fatal mistake, because I wasn't concentrating on music. Moreover, Master Romero rearranged most of the melodies. Because I had listened to all soundtracks around hundred of times, I was non stop confused, awaiting different notes Razz During second sonata I guessed, that I should stop analysing and just open for feelings, brought to me by melody. I had never tried to do it, but now I'm sure that's what I was always missing, when I was listening to classical music.

As Mr Romero promised, his second sonata was full of heroism. There were great battles, powerful warriors fighting with evil and a grain of melancholia. All epicness of this world hidden in a few notes Smile I am still under great impression, how did he manage to put together so many different pieces.

The third sonata, „Waltzing wizards” was a completely different story. It tells me about everyday human's life, all it's joy and sadness. About distant lands and expactation. However the most powerful feeling was happiness  Smile

After the third sonata a surprise was awaiting us Smile Mr Romero was playing on the piano together with beautiful violinist – Mrs Magda. The main motive was from one towns from H4 (I am not sure which one exactly, I was playing H4 so long time ago... Maybe Sir Albe will tell us more ;P ). Altough it was shorter than previous sonatas, I was enjoying it a lot.

Mr Romero receives so much applause, that he was forced to came back on  a stage twice. After second return he played one of his favourite sonatas composed by Chopin.

After concert everyone could meet with Mr Romero and have a few words with him. I didn't have a VIP ticket so I resigned from this pleasure and now I regret it. Not that much, because I had seen Paul Romero and Brock Summers on a train station the next day and they looked a bit exhausted Razz Apparently, the „meet and greet” ended at 1:30! Fortunately Albe brings me an autographs of both gentlemen Very Happy

We were leaving Toruń at 8 a.m. so after quick, traditional beetroot soup (Albe says he likes it!) in restaurant we returned to our hotels. My travel lasts only five hours, but Albe noted, that he and Frederic will be travelling around twenty hours with many changes! I hope they catched all the trains without any troubles...

I am very, very glad I was on this concert. Now I am waiting when Mr Romero will compose themes for a whole orchestra! Rock!

Thank you so much for this message. I am relieved to know everything was okay; it's a pity that you weren't with Sir Albe when he was with Paul himself, but let's hope Sir Albe brings us a lot of cool photos to share. I even plan to post them as official update, it can be a very nice material for community feedback and overall promotion.

There is no suprise that you met many people aware of H3SW; there was a large group of Acid Cave (Kwasowa Grota) and Behemoth's Lair (Jaskinie Behemota) community members, I am sure it was a lot of fun to Sir Albe to meet them and realize that they know very well about the origin of the logo he was holding. Smile You are lucky guys out there, Paul would never come to Siberia I think. I can only meet with GrayFace, the current WoG team leader and author of many useful modding tools which in fact made our life much easier. He lives in a neighbouring town... 400 km away, heh. It's kind of 4-6 hours of driving.

I am interested in what you discussed about the Witch lineup, because I honestly don't like the Gorgon much (it comes from D&D and it is not enough classic fairy-taleish creature for H2), but it's the best variant for now. I guess we can talk about the lineup in the respective thread there though.

Anyways, I am eager for Sir Albe's input in this thread. Perhaps we can even tranform this thread to something like "real life meetings of H3SW team" or something in future, to make this thread live longer Smile

My friend Frederik and I met with Uhm in the reception in the concert hall Od Nowa before the concert began. I immediately spotted Uhm thanks to the pictures from his summer trip posted here on the forum. I went over to him a pulled one of the H3SW logo paper out. Uhm realized quickly that it was me (remember I actually never posted any picture here on the forums...yet). Then we talked and decided to have a photo of us with the H3SW logo in front of the concert poster. You should have seen everybody's faces when two random guys asks for a spot to take a picture of them holding a piece of paper with some kind of Heroes logo on it. I must say we really drew everyone's attention there Very Happy

I am so glad that Uhm was there too and meeting someone you know online is sure a very great pleasure! Also your English was great. I had no troubles understanding you Smile


Not long after the concert was about to begin as we stepped inside the actual concert hall which reminded my of both a stage and a cinema at the same time Smile After a little wait Paul Anthony Romero appeared and sat at the piano and began playing some classical, but not Heroes related music, then he stop suddenly and said "Oh, wrong composer". It was great fun for all of us and then Paul began the first of the three sonatas. The first one called "Requiem for a King" included themes like H3 Stronghold theme, H3 Castle theme and H6 Ghosts of the Past. The second sonata was called "Winds of War" and included H2 Sorceress theme (my favorite!!Smile, H2 ocean theme as well as H1 and H3 win scenarios (I think...) and H5 Academy theme. The thrid sonata was called "The Wizard Waltz" and contained H1 Barbarian theme (I wished for that one too) and Piano Concerto For a Hero No. 1 in Ahab's Minor from H7. The sonatas contained other themes as well, but I can't correctly recall all of them Very Happy Then the surprise happened with Paul beginning to play H4 Grass theme and then Ms. Magda appeared out of nowhere! It was also quite funny, but when they began playing together my tears couldn't be kept back... It was so amazingly beautiful... They switched between H4 Grass theme to H7 Academy theme from time to time.


After that Frederik and I was lucky enough to meet Mr. Romero. He was so nice and signed my first HoMM game which is actually the Platinum Edition (First three HoMM games with all expansions) along with a paper with the H3SW logo both for me, Frederik and Uhm. I told Paul how I always since I was a kid had adored his music and told him what some of my favorites were: H2 Sorceress theme, H2 Ocean theme and H6 Ghost of the Past. He told me that I liked the darker themes Very Happy

After that we also had the chance to meet Brock H. Summers. He also was very nice and told us about the process of Paul composing music for the Heroes games. Paul gets the visuals and then create a musical score from there. It is incredible how well factions seem to fit with their town theme!

Also I met with some guys from Acid Cave (one of them was Dark Dragon, but I am a bit unsure about the other guy). Both contacted me because they noticed the paper with the H3SW logo I was holding. Both of them were very nice and we had a great talk about the mod, they seemed very excited to experience the new version of it. I am quite honored that I met those guys. Funny enough I got asked sometime if I was Orzie and then I had to disappoint them saying that I did a lot of the small stuff for the mod. It seems people would really like to meet you (and that counts me too Very Happy). Also I met with SKT (I think, sorry if I got it wrong) how visits this forum quite often. He also was very polite and we discussed the mod and the future for it. Hope to see you in here Smile

After that I also talked a bit with a very nice German guy who actually found the music a lot more interesting than the games Smile Then I joined Uhm again and met shortly with the Polish Press Agency (I didn't actually hear that at the time!). Afterwards Uhm got the great idea to go to Torun centrum to have a little something to eat. It was very entertaining talking with Uhm and we all had a great time! Very Happy Also yes I got the chance to taste traditional Polish beetroot soup that I found surprisingly delicious:

After that it was time to go home and sleep. We also, like Uhm, had to take the train early next morning where we also got a little glimpse of Paul and Brock before they left Torun.


All in all one of the best days of my life for sure. It was so amazing to meet you Uhm and I hope I will see you again someday Smile Also I wish we from H3SW team could at some point in the future. That would be amazing Very Happy

Finally, a report! Thank you so much, Sir Albe. Sorry guys I was so eager so I posted some of the photos without asking Sad

The other guy you met must have been Acid Dragon, former original WoG Team member and current Acid Cave administrator. So cool to know you've seen a lot of people that are aware of the project, it brings motivation Smile

The photos are to appear on VK, Facebook, DF2 forum, Heroes Community and the team's ModDB page. I hope Sir Albe and Uhm are not against showing their faces and mentioning their nicknames Smile

Sorry I kept you waiting. It took some time to get the cable for the camera Smile I am very happy you like it Orzie and great that you posted the pictures on our various forum. I hope people will enjoy them just as much as you do Smile

I am pretty sure you are right about the other guy being no other than Acid Dragon himself! What an honor! Sure a lot of people noticed the paper and was interested in it Smile I was so proud to tell them I was one of the team members Smile

Also you already asked me for admission to share the photos, but I respect your politeness very much. Thank you Orzie Smile
