Default BONFIRE: An upcoming new mod/game

I just wanna tell about the mod Terroin and I are working on. It should be ready for testing in the spring - we will post when we need testers.

It is inspired by the Heroes of Might and magic 3 map-generator. A lot more are random compared to a normal KB game. It means that sometimes a game is more easy and other times more hard - just as it was in the Heroes3 mapgenerating.

It builds on the shoulders of the Hylfire mod with Acrimaldo and the randomness with skills and the new or improved spells and items.

It is sort of new game, not just a mod: We have re-used 4 excisting maps but altered them alot, plus we have created 6 new maps with 15 new undergrounds and 32 new arenaes - and more will be added! It's easy to add future maps, since it is a world where you can travel anywhere. The enemy creatures grow in strength when you grow, this means the whole world is open (as seen in the Heroes 4 game). Each map has a "mapmaker" person that sell a new map. See pic:

The starting location doesn't have many buildings from start, but you can build them! There are 2 things you need a lot in Bonfire: Woodpiles and Kill Proofs. Each time you kill and army you get 1 kill proof which is a token you keep in your backpack for later trading. To build the starting Castle you need 3 kill proofs:

Borg 2 have3kp (2).bmp

borg3 borgbygget (2).bmp

Borg4 4tingderefter (2).bmp

Creatures can be restocked for kill proofs.

Default Buildings to build in castle!!

After building the castle you can upgrade it! You can build 3 different kinds of buildings, each can be upgraded:
-sawmill: Gives 0-1 woodpile after each fight. Can be collected when you return to castle. Access to building Stable that gives temporary rage after fight.
-mine: Gives an extra chance of gold and crystal after a fight. 3 levels.
-Blacksmith: Grants you access to creatures like barrior, cannon, griphon statue and iron ball. Weaponry can be build afterwards that can give 3 items.
-Cellar: Get access to a 3 level dungeon under the castle, 5000 gold pr level, each with increasing chance of finding goodies. Especially good if you have a tough start.
When 2 things are build you can also build Higher Baracks which gives acces to level 4 and 5 creatures in your alliance/race. Without this you will only have level 1-3 in the castle.

Woodpiles: You can get woodpiles from the sawmill in the castle if you choose to build one, or find them in chests, both visible/sea chests/digged up ones.
Close to the castle an inn can be build for 1 woodpile after you help the innkeeper finding a drunkard. You will then have access to creatures, some spells and occationally items. The inn can be upgraded for kill proofs which also grants you leadership in return. After fully being upgraded you can gamble in the inn.

Furthermore, in each map there will be around 5 building sites where you can build a random building for 2 woodpiles. You will have a builder with you (at one of the valkyrie slots in the hero menu). Here is an example of a building site:

And vupti, a random building is created. It is completely random which building that will be build at a particular site. This Building is a rare one with a few level 5's. Some have items, scrolls, recipies or creatures or a mix.

Another Building choice in the starting area:

Arturok 3valg (2).bmp

BTW, I will post more pics about the game in the days to come.

Default Map example

Here're some pics from one of the new maps, "Hrasken". The 2 first pics show the randomness in the landscape. In the first the bridge is blocked by a tree but in another game not. In this game I have to access the other site by going down the dungeon.

Also an example of map difference: There's a fence to the left blocking the passage. Other games it is blocked a different place, still I can always get to all areas.

Hrask 3 blokhegn (2).bmp

The 3rd pics show a scene from the Hrask Dungeon, a huge dungeon:

Hrask 6 dungy.bmp

... and a new arena in the dungeon:

Default More pics from the mod.

Here are some more pics from the demon + undead map, Zellock :

zellock 1 (2).bmp

zellock 3 (2).bmp

zellock 4.bmp

The following one of the new arenas:

zellock arena (2).bmp

A new arena from a cave in Zellock:

zellock sniplin arena (2).bmp

You also see a huge yellow fly to the right on the battlefield. It is my companion. A companion is like a 6th stack but there are only 1 in the stack. When the hero levels up the companion does too in Health, Defence etc. It will automatically resurrect for the next battle if it dies in battle. Can be used as cannon fodder or tank.
So far it is the same 7 companions as in Hylfire. In the first map I can choose between 3 random of them. And if I have chosen "Arena" at Arturok (shown at the end of the first post in this thread), I'll be able to rechoose companions until I get the one I want. It costs 5 kill proofs to do that.
