The Veil is rather a shadow, sneaky faction now. Though cloudn't they have some more "visible" forces too? Warriors who join the Veil, swearing they will fanatically fight in the name of undeads (I prefer to call it Darkness, that sounds more interesting), hoping to be rewarded? I was making dark elven units, but concept changed and now they more fits this, as their were mean to serve dark gods, that I changed to Darkness (undeads). This makes sense for me, but I'm aware it's different from main concept.
Though here are some ideas:
Dark riders
Cost: 3
Hp: 16
Armor: 0/1
Attack: 5
Range: 1
Action/Turn: 2
Speed: 6
Sight: 6
Dodge counter: 5%
Spell resistance: 0%
Bonuses: 50% against infantry
Not effected by cloak cape tech
Description: Those mens and their horses sacrificed their lives to ancient ones, hoping the will be rewarded. They aren't knights, they aren't heavy armored. Though, without fear, they will charge at enemy if that's Darkness's will, blinded by their faith. Using swords for fast attacks they can strike enemy's infantry, especially archers. It's better to use them as a scout thanks to thier speed. Their horses are quite agile, what makes them able to something dogde enemy's counterattack.

Blood sister
Cost: 5
Hp: 26
Armor: 0/0
Attack: 10
Range:1
Action/Turn: 2
Speed: 3
Sight: 4
Dodge melee: 5%
Dodge counter: 10%
Spell resistance: 15%
Albitlies: Passive bloodlust (adds +1 attack after killing an enemy, like Zurgo veteran effect, but only attack), Aura: Sisterhood - adds plus two attack, effects only blood sisters, not stackable, range 4
Bonuses: 50% against infantry
Not effected by cloak cape and ancient studies techs, rest works
Description:
Blood sisters are lightly equipped (leather armors, short swords) womens, who swear to Ancient ones to fight in it's name together without fear, to the last dying breath, blindly following blood call and trusting theirselfs. Ancient ones reward them with their blessings, making them stronger with each killed enemy. The bound between them makes them even stronger if there is more of them near. Mostly to be used against infantry. Their bound with Ancient ones makes them less effected by spells. They are agile, what makes them able to dogde attacks.
They shouldn't be effected by dark cape tech I suppose, but rest works, besides ancient studies for blood sisters since they already have bloodlust.

A few of us have discussed them as worshippers of the ancient ones, who are mostly forgotten. so the Veil seeks to restore the pantheon of old and are willing to do anyting to achieve their goal.

Dark riders can be created by editing light cav, and for blood sister you can use sword dancer as base. But if you mean original base, then no, I'm not pixel artist. I can bearly edit something, but no draw from zero.

I think we should have a special buliding for those, how about Warrior's temple, were they swear to ancient ones?
Or a huge Underground Temple or something if we want a mega buliding.

Since every unit has special powers/spells it will require a great effort to make those

I suggest making a single topic for every unit

Also the necromancer is technically a human so it might be included in the cult too

He doesn't look like a human imo... For me it looks he is a skeleton in one tunic...

I have done reading on this subject...

Add the Cursed to The Veil.

They serve as enforcers of the will of the ancient ones.

The Cursed are the Veil units that have Successfully obtained undeath. They now seek to force all others to join them, seeing undeath as salvation.

Aye, no prob StormSaint, is this "Eye Tyrant" some sort of "beholder" creature?

Ooh... I don't like this "eye tyrant" idea. It has too much actions for caster unit. Either lower amount of spells (to magic missle only, no debudding spells!!!!!!!) or lower amount of actions down to 1.
4-8 cursed units for 1 turn is tooooooooooooooooo much.

Or raise cost up to 20 turns.

20 turns to curse 4 - 8 units sounds kinda worth it.
Only kinda

Well biggest thing is to really protect this unit if putting in 20 turns
If you can do that this unit will be killer

Pretty much same, haven't being much on this and on aof due the "performance nuisances" from the recent versions... I die of boredom b4 the game do finish the loading, it takes like 5 min to start, so i'm more to aos and other variants that doesn't go over than 30 sec atm.

what is slow? 5 minutes?

@Stratego (dev) 3ElD means that launching aof on phone (maybe not app itself but any match) takes lots of time. Sometimes even 5 minutes.
And that is too slow if compare to aos (for him).

you mean pressing on a game tobe loaded is 5 minutes? dunno why... it is 2-8 secs on my device
can u tell me a sample map (eg. campaign map) that is slow?

Re: The Veil - Concept.

On my device for example loading app itself (latest dev version) takes 68 seconds.
Loading some really big maps with lots of units and such takes sometimes up to 3 minutes.
I don't have any campain maps where i had such issue and also i am patient and can wait such low amount of time but in some random games with ai (1vs5) on biggest maps i had sometimes when unit amount of ai's was bigger than 200 (each!) it was loading 3-4 minutes and it also took at least 1.5 minutes even on highest speed for all ai's to take their moves.

Can't say same for DoomsDayDragonfire though.

Loading screen is kinda annoying
Takes 30 to 40 Secs as that's not to bad compared to y'alls its still little annoying to happens
Im assuming cause AOF has more to load in it takes longer but this is a hypothesis

loading screen: i know that, that is a one time thing, if it kept in memeory it comes in in few seconds.

i am asking about maps: but ok, i will check with 4 AI against each other on a big map and see hogy it loads after 100 or so turns.

arent we off-topic here? :)
