Wars of Theosa

Recommended Posts

Gauda   

Hello toghether,

I´ve been asked to upload this map also on this site. You play one of a totally of 12 races divided into 4 factions and you have to kill the others. It contains many new units and skills (well everything is based on a Blizzard unit or skill but you know what I mean ^^)

For now i´ve been working a lot of time on it. The map isn´t finished yet and currently I create the skills of the rest of the heroes.

I would appreciate if you test it and please give feedback. So have fun and if you want here´s some more information about the map.

Remark that this map isn´t finished now.

Lore

The idea
The Idea behind the map is that you can Play a game like WoW in Position of a Person like Varian or other faction leaders.
There are 12 different races in 4 factions with own Units, Upgrades and skills.
As a future update i plan to create heroes to every faction and to upgrade the existing dungeons with Special loot. (For now you will only find Gold and Control Points inside These dungeons)

The plot of the story
Once the world of Theosa was a quite peacefull ones with only small border conflicts and some uprising cultures but then there were sudden Events: The sea rises, earthquakes appeared and other disasters.
This is the Age of destruction. Over a time of 10 years many cities were destroyed, People died and nearly all continents were changed.
The Problems became after this time less and less frequent and finally they disappeared. Nobody knew the reason but it became time to build new civilications.

You Play on one continent there this map takes place on. In the northern parts an Alliance called "Blulales" was formed. It´s Opponent formed in the southern parts: "The Stranded Alliance" which was called like that because most of its´ members had to flee from the sea. The eastern parts once were populated by great and proud cultures who lost nearly everything forcing them to steal from other nations and to form "The Eastern Crime Cartell".

But there also formed another Nation in the westerns parts. First it was small and it formed after the others. It was a dark civilication who attracted People from the other factions and united them under the banner of the black Hand. This is the "Cult of the Black Hand" with the objective to summon the Doombringer Legion upon this world. The cult is the eternal servant of the darkness. These "Demon Invaders" - how they are called - summoned the Age of Destruction to weaken and to break the cultures of Theosa. Now they come back to enslave them and to kill those who oppose them. Their main objective is to destroy the order of universes create by gods and Titans seeming to be good ones but the origin of the demons is that they lost all trust to them - "Now we are the gods!"

The races

Blulales:
- Carras and Stelethyds:
Carras are known as men of the north praying to the fallen ancestors. Furthermore Carras construct large buildings showing their skills and are known as the leading race of the Blulales.
Stelethyds are proud spiderlike warriors and live in the dark deeps of the earth. They are lead by women - where the strongest achieve the rank of a Stretchsilver Maid - and men are usually active as spellcaster who are known for their abilities in working with crystalls.
- Trolls:
Trolls are people of a fierce nature and with excellent combat skills. Their people have simple needs and they don´t build big cities but since the age of destruction destroyed their old homeland they suffered a lot.
Although the Trolls had much problems - these warriors are willed to defend the new Homeland.
- Shellers:
As a fishlike race the Shellers had quite small losses trough the age of destruction and the huge waves affected you less than the others.
Your people live with the elements but they are not able to use all of them. Your spellcasters use Water to heal your units and wind to damage enemies.

The Stranded Alliance:
- Humans and Zegols:
Humans are a race with great losses through the age of destruction. Nethertheless this has strengthen their religion of the eternel light giving them hope to a better future. Furhtermore noble Knights and Paladines are a sign of your peoples hope.
Zegols are strong humanoids looking like dragons and although they´ve got wings they are not able to fly. Nethertheless they are well skilled fighters and able to use windmagic.
- Dwarves:
The Dwarves of the Stranded Alliance helped the others to survive after the Age of Destruction.
These people spend much time under earth giving them a special relationship to earth and darkness. Dark magic is used in both possibilities: support and attack.
Furthermore the dwarvish culture appreciates good festivals and beer and hiting an anvil while forging a weapon seems to be quite relaxing.
- Elves:
The Elves are a race who lost many forests during the last years shattering it´s hope. In order to clean this your people started to cultivate this countries´ forests.
These people life toghether with the nature making them able to call the nature´s spirits to help. The elvish armies are also supported by well skilled rangers and soldiers.

Demon Invaders:
- Cult of the Black Hand:
The "Cult of the Black Hand" - the eternal cult of demons. They follow the demonic aim to destroy the whole order of the beginning and they do not fear the death which is just a door to another live making the souls of these warriors to demons in the void.
After you have caused all the cataclysm of Theosa you are to finish what you have begun.
- Doombringer Legion:
The "Doombringer Legion" is one of countless other demonic hordes. They follow the demonic aim to destroy the whole order of the beginning.
The Cult of the Black Hand has brought this Legion to this world to cause Doom.

The Eastern Crime Cartell:
- Troglospyl City:
The City of Troglospyl is the leading force in the Eastern Crime Cartell and maybe the city with the greatest looses of culture.
The age of destruction shattered many cultures and although it caused medium damage to the city Troglospyl lost many people they´ve traded with forcing the people of Troglospyl to survive by raid at all costs.
Troglospyl once was known to have well skilled Samurais, Ringers, Mages and Artisans but today those wellskilled people are corrupted and complemented by hated rogues (The others hate the rogues).
- The Pigclans:
The Pigclans didn´t easily through the age of destruction. The pigmen don´t have much culture but they appreciate good and much food making this to their main objectiv through the raids they are forced to.
Nethertheless religion is not unknown to your people and once your people praised Kasaa - the god of the Kasaa beasts which got this name from their god. Kasaa is apart from this point deified as god of treasure hunters.
Kasaa was less and less present so your people became interested in dark magic.
- Ete´Thero Trolls:
The Ete´terro Trolls are named after their former leader Bakalla Ete´terro. They live in a region called "Dead man´s descent" which is called like that as a consequence of the Trolls´ fierceness.
Once the descent was a jungle filled with live but earthquakes and fanatic cultists who deifeid the forces of destruction destroyed it and only this barren was left.
Nearly nothing lefted and so they were forced to join the Crime Cartell.
- Goldseeker Legion:
The Goldseeker Legion is the most greedy faction in Theosa. These people are lead by Eugene called "The glorious one" who made it through the age of the destruction without wasting money.
The Legion had only few losses and built a city in the Brekana Deeps where they deinie Mammon and plan new raids.
Furthermore the engineers of the legion are among the smartest engineers in Theosa making them capable to build fighting robots near the front.

Gameplay

Spoiler

This Needs some Pictures which i don´t have prepared for now. But you can find everything on the Hiveworkshop site (Link)

Racespecifics

Spoiler

Each race has some specific abilities affecting the gameplay. Here´s a short description of the races i finished so far with a little rating of myself what i think about them and the ideas behind each race. If you have feedback about these ideas and their implementation your welcome to post it.

Shellers

Rank: Self-made specialist

Difficulty: Hard

You will a have a quite hard beginning phase where you have to improve your army and to unlock better units. There are 3 Technologies you have to upgrade: Crafting, Spellpower and Unit Training. In order to improve them you have to build buildings, use skills and train units. (Seems quite easy but you need some luck)

In order to increase the Crafting Level you have to free the renegade bonecarver Scarbone who´s located north of your base.

Later you will focus strategical targets and use control and support abilities.

 

Humans and Zegols

Rank: Lieutenant

Difficulty: Normal

There´s not much to say but you should chose your final upgrade wisely. You can either chose to build more and stronger elite units which will make you concentrate on small groups or pick the sorcerer´s way which improves some of your spellcasters.

 

Troglospyl

Rank: Camper

Difficulty: Normal

Due to the eradication of Theosa during the age of destruction it´s hard for you to hire new criminals which increases the training time of your units by 20%. However your buildings need 25% less time being build and ALL buildings can attack enemy units.

Also the upgrades at your classification unit cost more than the ones of other races but you can focus earlier on your prefered paths.

 

The Pigclans

Rank: Show me the food

Difficulty: Hard

The Battlecook is your most important unit. Farms can give him Food (Mana) he can use to cook meals for your units. With those meals you unlock upgrades to your units.

Except of your simple units you have to pay more money to get stronger units. Also you can build only 5 workers but each one more unit of each Elite Type than other races.

 

Ete´terro Trolls

Rank: Spam

Difficulty: Easy

The most important information about your race is spam, spam and one more time spam. You can train even faster weak units than other races (about -15% time on common units)  but have also the option to train a couple of elite units which might be useful when attacking an enemy but don´t forget to produce more units.

Voodoo Lords are your primary spellcasters and important if you play the summoner path.

You have one ultimate upgrade wether you want to train weak units even faster or if you want better summoners.

Also your buildings have weaker armor than other races so play offensive - your units are cheap.

 

Goldseeker Legion

Rank: GreedIsGood

Difficulty: Normal

Your units can walk on water so supprise your enemies. Some units don´t need to be trained. They can be bougth at Crab Barracks and the Temple of Money like common mercenaries (Pay attention: Your enemies can buy them as well). Finally your Engineers can build limitless armies of robots but only a limited number of them can be Activatet!

Unitstats

Spoiler

The Units

I tried to make a new System to make balancing easier.
Units can be classified as "Common", "Elite", "Boss" or "Building" and can have a Tier between 1 and 5 but there are also common Tier 0 Units like workers. They have the following Basic stats which can Change with Upgrades

Common:
Tier 0: 50 Hp, 2.5 dps, 1 Food, 1 Gold, Training Time 5
Tier 1: 100 Hp, 5 dps, 1 Food, 2 Gold , Training Time 10
Tier 2: 150 Hp, 7.5 dps, 1 Food, 3 Gold, Training Time 15
Tier 3: 200 Hp, 10 dps, 2 Food, 4 Gold, Training Time 20
Tier 4: 250 Hp, 12.5 dps, 2 Food, 6 Gold, Training Time 25
Tier 5: 300 Hp, 15 dps, 3 Food, 8 Gold, Training Time 30

Elite:
Tier 1: 500 Hp, 25 dps, 6 Food, 11 Gold, Limit 4
Tier 2: 750 Hp, 25 dps, 9 Food, 18 Gold, Limit 4
Tier 3: 1000 Hp, 25 dps, 12 Food, 24 Gold, Limit 3
Tier 4: 1250 Hp, 25 dps, 15 Food, 30 Gold, Limit 2
Tier 5, 1500 Hp, 25 dps, 19 Food, 36 Gold, Limit 2
Generally Elite Units have a training time of 60 but Elite Tier 5 Units have a training time of 75.


Bosses:
There will be a few heroes who are classified as boss but most ot them are hostile ones with special loot.
All Bosses have a dps of 35.
Tier 1: 2500 Hp Tier 2: 3750 Hp, Tier 3: 5000 Hp,
Tier 4: 6250 Hp, Tier 5: 7500 Hp

Strong Units are in this game usually better than weak Units but to make the basic Units not useless in the late game it´s possible to Train them in Groups (like 2, 3 or 5). This is also cheaper and faster than Training These Units one by one and furthermore some of those Units have good supporting skills like Auras or Buffs.

Buildings:
Those are their Basic stats
Tier 1: 2500 Hp Tier 2: 3750 Hp, Tier 3: 5000 Hp,
Tier 4: 6250 Hp, Tier 5: 7500 Hp
Their costs can are not that standardized as other Units but there is still a Standard i don´t explain for now.

Hello,

sorry i had no time during the last daies.

Notes: - i´ll try to reduce the amount of creeps

- The map is still in Progress: at the Moment i build the heroes, when this is done i plan to individualize the different factions (i´ll think about the orc faction)

 

When you play singleplayer mode:

Type this into the chate "- vote" then there starts a very short game (30mins of sudden death and no intro).

Ok i think i´ll rework the voting part first.

Here´s another update including the abilities of the remaining heroes and some bugfixes. 

I also replaced advanced unit production buildings with building plots.

The plan of the next update is to make the races more individual.

Hello,

here´s the next update of the map with some bugfixes and some new ideas showing what i´m working on for now. 

I only updated half of the races (updating all 12 of some needs some time) so this is more or less a preview of the next one.
