Some of you may have noticed that over the last few months several faction ideas have been proposed on this board and partially implemented before being abandoned either due to neglect, or lack of a playable platform.
Some of the factions were not viable, others are little more than redone versions of existing factions (the xxx elves, loyalist clones, etc) However, many of them had merit and seeing the ideas fall to the wayside felt much like a crime.
It is because of that, that I have decided to collect as many active faction developers as I am capable, along with voulenteer sprite artists to create a new era. An era that may one day, hopefully, be as well played as EoM or EE.
It's name is the Era of Strife.
Currently four factions exist in EoS. Each contributing its own flavor and ideas into a unique whole that, ideally, will eventually be balanced both against itself and against the default era. There are plans to expand the era, especially if more people show enough interest (and willingness to work!) to create their own factions. The only real requirments are that a faction be both able to fit seemlessly and uniquly into the existing framework, and that the faction maintainer remain active after incorperation.
The current factions with their accompannying threads are as follows.
The Eventide - Using the magic of light and darkness against their foes. These humans care little for members of other races, instead only wanting a place to allow their once-great empire to be reborn.
The Triththians - Long diverged from their defensive kin, these "Hill Dwarves" have used advances in technology to build deadly siege engines capable of destroying nearly any fortification.The Eltireans
- Technologically advanced and spiritually enlightened. The Eltireans would have lived for ages in their hidden cities in the sky had fate not forced them to flee their homes from a host of dragons. The Free Saurians
- Decades ago the saurians broke free from the iron grip of thier dragonkin overseers. Killing many of the great bests who's magic and might had held them at bay. Now, a new creature has appeared at the edges of the great swamp of Sraal-vex, and the Saurians will not allow history to repeat itself.
The current list of people working on this project are as follows.
Jamini - Maintainer. Author of Eventide. Artist for eventide and some misic.
Lizard - Author of Free Saurians.
AI - Author of Triththians.
Elrias - Author of Eltireans.
Jormungandr - Some art for Free Saurians.
If you wish to help us on this project. Please send myself a PM. Artists are welcome to work on whatever faction they want (the Trithtians and Eltireans are in dire need of sprites. The Eventide need some work and animations.)
