The War of the Gods

Hi guys!

I actually didn't want to expose this map project I'm on until I COMPLETE it, but after thinking it through, I think it's a good idea to at least post out what I have in mind, for several reasons:

1) Suggestions/New Ideas

2) Early error warnings(like whether this idea is good for the map or not)

3) Publicity XD



The title of this map i'm making is called the "War of the Gods". It is basically a mix between Dota and some map I which I can't remember it's name(it's something like Footman Wars, except that you can't control the creeps except by clicking on "beacon buttons" which actually gives the general location where you want your troops to gather and attack). The difference between this map and Dota are the following:

1) Each side(sides as in Sentinel or Scourge, which in this case, I just simply put them as East and West side) has three separate bases, where each base has it's own set of heroes(do note that allpick, random and allrandom modes are available). Each "base" is actually an entirely different race of Gods.

2) Each base is surrounded by walls and have many defenses.

3) Like Dota, there will be spawned creeps every 15 seconds. Unlike Dota, after a certain period of time, the types and number of creeps will increase, including siege elements, which will be useful in breaking tower defenses.

4) Like Dota, the region in between the two sides are filled with forested areas. Unlike Dota, each "pathways" have elevated and deelevated areas, as well as many ambush spots, and maze areas(to escape ambushes).

5) The six different "God-races" are:

West Side

i) Gods of Pandemonium(Forgotten Realms gods)

ii) Gods of Valhalla(Norse mythology)

iii) Gods of Olympia(Greek Mythology)

East Side

i) Powers of the Abyss(Forgotten Realms demon lords/gods of hell)

ii) Gods of Jotunheim(Norse Mythology, opposes Valhalla, or the Aesir)

iii) Titans of Tartarus(Greek Mythology)

6) There are a total of 72 different heroes(12 from each God-race). They are the following:

Pandemonium Heroes:

Helm, Guardian
Lathander, Morninglord
Mystra, Goddess of Magic
Mielikki, Lady of the Forest
Oghma, God of Knowledge

Ares, God of War
Athena, Daughter of Olympia
Apollo, God of Light

Fenrir, Lord of Wolves
Gabriel Celeste, Dark Angel

Genevieve, Lich Queen

Tartarus Heroes:

Cronus, Dark Titan
Hyperion, Titan of Light
Prometheus, Wise Titan
Atlas, Titan of War
Coeus, Titan of Intelligence
Themis, Titan of Justice and Order
Oceanus, Sea Titan
Gaea, Earth Goddess
Mnemosyne, Titan of Memory
Epimethius, Pandora Titan
Uranus, Sky Titan
Atropos, Death's Fate



Right now, i've already completed the creation of the Pandemonium Gods and their abilities, and the terrain, but I still need to make the other Gods, as well as items, troops and buildings.

If you guys want to help out, all I need from you guys is just ideas on the abilities of the various heroes, especially those from Tartarus.

If you guys are interested, I'll post up what abilities I have given to the Pandemonium Gods so that you won't have to waste your item thinking up of abilities that I've already created.

Any suggestions, or comments?

Bartuc08: Errtu is just a normal demonlord. He's only a Baalor, not a real power. Demogorgon and Asmodeus are different. Asmodeus is the OVERLORD of the NINTH ABYSSAL PLANE. Errtu is like a rat when compared to him.

Bart, why in all the hell's of this Earth would YOU of all people argue AGAINST Lolth? I thought you were pro-Drow? Lolth is the goddess of the Drow, genius.

-Dare-

You wouldn't happen to be basing this off of DnD diety figures, would you?

Some of those god descriptions are either wrong, or irrelivant btw. I know alot about greek mythology so if you have any questions, ask.

I looked over it after Malice-'s comment. He's right. Here's a big one:

Titans of Tartarus...

The titans never went to Tartarus (aka, Hell)... They were trapped as stone within a cavern somewhere, most (if not all) except for the likes of say...Atlas? Who "holds the weight of the world on his shoulders"

Perhaps you should learn your mythology right before thinking about implicating it within a map...

If he needs balanced sides, then he can't have both. Duh. So why bother commenting in a way that may possibly result in his mind saying "hmm, Bart has a point for once. BYE BYE LOLTH!"?

I'm trying, but I keeping getting a huge blank.

Anyway, here's another comment: Since when do Norse Gods and Greek mythology mix? Just my thought...

Alexander: Actually, you're wrong(it's either you or the site I checked out). I checked it out at this site: http://www.desy.de/gna/interpedia/greek_myth/titan.html#Titans

and it says this:

Most of the Titans fought with Cronus against Zeus and were punished by being banished to Tartarus.
Malice: I'm basing most of them on the site I showed you, but some of them I changed their descriptions because they didn't quite sound right. Well, since you're well-versed in Greek mythology, I suppose you could help me put better names to them?

Since when do Norse Gods and Greek mythology mix? Just my thought...
They don't. I'm just mixing them up for the fun of it. :)

You wouldn't happen to be basing this off of DnD diety figures, would you?
LOL, didn't you read my comment at the top? They're Forgotten Realms' gods.


EDIT: BTW, do you guys know whether the Lady of Pain has a real name? For those of you who play Planescape Torment, you should know who she is.

UPDATE: I have completed the Gods of the Pantheon(not Pandemonium. Got the name wrongly) and is proceeding to complete the Powers of the Abyss. Once I get the first 24 heroes done, I will then proceed to make the first lane's bases(on both sides). Once this is done, I will then release WotG Beta version 0.1. If you wish to beta test this version(only the first 24 heroes), do let me know.
