Mystical beings Race

Post by Tankhead » Tue Aug 07, 2018 6:19 am

Started to notice alot of myth type creatures taken into other fractions and decided to make this for future reference.
Here please name off Myth creatures and do stats later( unless you wanna do both )

We can't put mythical creatures into game. This was suggested before and copyright is killing it

What? Alot of myth creatures go far back for the public domain. Plenty of creatures out there that can't be copyrighted

Ya your right they can't be copyright or thats like saying certain company's own certain pieces of history and no one else can touch it now.

I formulated my sentence incorrectly. What i meant is, creatures that might be interesting for the race (Like Cthulu) cannot be implemented due to copyright issues. And while a lot of mythical creatures are already reserved for specific race this race will probably lack many units. I would also like to add that there is an already existing topic about mythical/mystical race and that suggestions should be posted there.

Actually cythulu is used in a lot of games, last I heard love craft wanted people to use his ideas because they were supposed to be a basis for people's monster's. You just have to make your own stories about them. E.g. You could have cythulu as a misunderstood good guy. As long as you don't copy him altogether and make up your own style of him then I think he should be fine.

The games that have it probably paid to get rights, but this is a free game so i know not if this is the case here.

Just to be clear
What i see as parts of this race:
Angels (and variants)
Elementals (better, more variety, more powerful)
Elemental dragons of creation as part of elementals
Titans
Spirits of some things (like of sea, of forest...)

Some mystical creatures like lernean hydra (more powerful than scaledfolk one but is unique unit).

These all are NOT copyrighted because they are part of folklore.

What kind of titans? I wouldn't want to see greek/atlantean kind because it kind of doesn't fit in the race,

I think about a bit different variant — extremly powerful variant of some unit type buffers.
Like archer titan, warrior titan, mage titan, wizard titan, pikeman titan.

They will have huge amount of hp and buffing aura for that specific unit type. Not so much damage or attack range though.

As for look of them - we can use images of race specific units (easily recognizable ones like elven archer or orc warrior). I am thinking about this still.

A new race whit many big giants, flying support and lot of buff.

I Don't like the idea of titans.
Not as a race part.
For naturally blood will be of kind
Drawn-to blood, where he may it find.

I want them. Maybe with different name... but i want to have unique/legendary units that can give huge buffs to all units of specific type (melee cavalry, foot archers, mechanical units, etc...) you and your ally have.
