The large maps are a risk because the Map Editor crashes so much when creating them. It took numerous times trying to get the lighting to work properly and not crash the Editor. Glad it was worth the effort to help others enjoy the game. more...

Hi Molski, is there any chance of getting similar map, as you've mentioned 2 years ago? This one was just perfect! Great balance and tactical challenges never before seen in HoMM :D I really loved how I had to calculate all my resources and movement points.
Hi ! Thank you a lot for this map ! Spent like 12 hours of pure fun on this, awesome. I played it only once yet but it's obvious that you can play it different ways ! It's really a map different than the others map i've played .. really fun
I have not defeated any of the red players, but I believe the Inferno castle on the overworld is the first one to be? Is it maybe that simple that I have missed a portal leading me to the legion of arch-angels guarding the angelic alliance? more...
The Heroes 5 Expansion will be the first to feature 'Renegades'. These are seemingly rebellious units who have been ostracised from their community. The story goes that a band of Haven followers break away from the mainstream town and form their own crusade against the demon army. These renegades oppose their own faction (Haven) and wear the colour red. They cannot be purchased in-town - the only way to recruit them is from the adventure map.
The Renegades are alternative upgrade units, and are listed below with their respective abilities:
Tax Payer; Shield Bash
Shoots; Rapid Fire
Large, Flyer, Unlimited Retal, Battle Frenzy
Shoots, No Melee Penalty, Caster
Large, Champion Charge
Large; Flyer, Life Drain
Apart from a life draining level 7 unit (Life Drain is the Vampire ability!), you can see 4 brand new abilitites (in italics) in this list:
Cleave: If this creature's attack kills at least one creature in the target stack, it performs an additional strike.
Battle Frenzy: Every next retaliation strike performed by this creature inflicts damage 1.5 times as great as the previous one.
Champion Charge: If this creature has walked more than 2 tiles when attacking, it also inflicts half damage on the stack standing in the line of attack immediately behind the primary target.
Rapid Fire: no description yet.
Pack Hunter, Howl
Unlimited Retalliation, Agility
Undead, Hexing Attack, Caster(32 mana).
Large, Flyer, Poisonous Attack
Unlimited Retaliation, Agility.
Pack Hunter: When this creature attacks a target, the target is also attacked by all the other stacks of creatures of the same type who are able to do so.
Howl: Once per battle, this creature can summon a friendly stack of equal power.
Hexing Attack: After a successful attack, the target creature also suffers the effect of one of the following damnations: Weakness, Slow, Suffering or Vulnerability. All the effects are equal to those of Expert-level spells.
Agility: For the next turn, this creature gains a +30% Defense bonus for every tile it walks.
