When did you played Heroes of Might and Magic for the first time? I have been playing Heroes for years. Actually, I've been playing it since I was a tiny kid when the games first came out. II remember when Heroes III came out and us kids all hopped on the family PC and played hot-seat for hours. We had a bootleg CD copy of the original Heroes III from my Dad's work friend. This was before the expansions even came out. We were too little to understand or care about the lore, but the animals, heroes, and spells were where it was at! Us girls had to collect all the animals and we would get upset when our favorites (like the dragons) were killed off. Us girls all had our favorite factions - mine was always the warlock and my cousin was always the necromancer with Sandro as her hero.
What HoMM did you discover first?
I've been playing so long I think I started with Heroes II and then played Heroes I after we found an ancient CD copy Dad had. It was so old that it didn't work on the main house PC - we had to use the slowest, oldest PC we owned to play the Heroes I.
What HoMM community you frequently visit? This is my first time with a forum. Thought it would be fun.
Have you ever made maps for HoMM? I piddled around with the map editors as a kid, but I never got into that aspect. I don't have the patience!
What others old games do you play? Hereos and Zoo Tycoon 2. Really the only games I play period.
What do you hope to see / to do on this forum? To share some fond memories with the game growing up and help with the mod by giving some ideas and thoughts.
What languages do you speak? English and a little Canadian French.
What is your favourites in HoMM II ? (what Town, Creature, Spell, Artifact, Hero, map) My favorite faction has always been the Wizard faction, but a close second would be the Knight faction. Chain lightning and lightning are my favorite spells. I like the normal difficulty maps. I'm not the best player, I just play for fun, so the more normal and easy difficulty maps, the better! My favorite creature are the nomads - the horses are so cute!
If you ever wondered about the era of hot-seat games in the family home, then feel free to ask away! I grew up playing Heroes for hours with the other kids in our family. Just seeing the art style gets me nostalgic.

Hello and welcome to our forums!
It's always nice to see people still rolling under the banner of Heroes games.
Since it's your first time, I think I should note that the era of forums in the Internet is long gone; most people are on social media, and we have a page on Facebook, too.
However, this is the right place if you want to reach us more directly. The forum is useful for discussion, asking questions and finding more specific info about Heroes fan projects, their past and their future.

(what Town, Creature, Spell, Artifact, Hero, map) - My favourite town is a Warlock town, it's my favourite faction. What my favourite creature is is a Black Dragon obviously complicated question to answer, they all have their strengths, but some of my favourites are Black Dragons, skeletons, ghosts(if I'm the one who has them x) ), Steel golems/ogre lords/minotaur kings/vampire lords, and Greater druids. My favourite combat spell is chain lightining/lightning, and my favourite adventure spell is either dimension door or town portal. My favourite artifact is the lightning rod(what else?). My favourite hero is Sandro(a very innocent name for the literal grim reaper). I don't really have a favourite map, but I think Arrax the Jerk is really interestng, as it is small but makes for a long game. What else should we ask you? N/A How did you discovered this forum?
