I have created a backbone for an elven civilisation which hasn'tbeen completed yet but outlines all the major items needed. I will edit it once I add to the document.

Quoted from .../CIV/Elves.doc:


http://www.freewebs.com/ludwigwendzich/aomelves1.jpg (AOM:Elven XP Cover Picture)
Major Gods:

Jhodia (Yo-dee-a) Father of Gods, Sky

Eauva (Oh-va) Water
Ahdophi (Ah-dof-ai) Love, Peace, Celebration

Arbrehl (Ah-bral) Vegetation
Bihre (Berr) Wildlife, Hunter
Lehyal (Leh-hal) War

Major Gods:

Jhodia (Yo-dee-a) Eye (x2)
Gherri (Geh-ree) Engineering (x2)
Glerdh (Gleh) Image (x2)

Minor Gods

Hefe (Hay-fee) Plague (x1)
Meia (May-ah) Rising Sun (x2)
Dohriea (Door-ee-ah) Summoning (x4)

Eye:
Click on an area to place a statue of your major god that provides a huge LoS.

Engineering:
All mills are blessed with increased productivity for a period of time.

Image:
Some of the elves in a targeted area will split in two to create a clone of them.

Pitiless:
Phol gives your elves the ability to fight without being hurt for a short period of time.

Ceasefire:
All combat/war in the game is stopped through the peace of Bihre.

Storm:
The oceans in a targeted area will turn into a storm killing all enemy ships.


Deadly Pastures:
A targeted area will sprout deadly stalks of grass that if walked on will slowly drain away health, this GP however loses half the health that it removes form it’s enemy.
(If 100HP is removed then 50HP is lost for the deadly pastures.)

Conversion:
Some animals in a targeted area will convert to your side and will obey your commands.

Spirits:
The spirit of all the elves in a targeted area is withdrawn by Glerdh to fight alongside their physical bodies until they are destroyed. Attacks of these spirits are strong but they die out quite quickly. (100 HP)

Plague:
A deadly plague befalls all the units in a targeted area that will kill them after a while.

Rising Sun:
With the help of her mother Meia forces the sun to rise and weaken all enemy myth units.

Summoning:
Dohriea allows you to summon units in a targeted area to another part of the map.

Elven MUs

Pixie: Ahdophi

A tiny winged elf that heals allied units; it is very weak and has no attack. They are best used in a group.

Oaris: Eauva

These fearless creatures are used in naval combat and sink ships from below. When upgraded to Remedial Oaris it also heals allied units nearby when not attacking.

Mire-Ahl: Glerdh
These are fearsome spirits from the forests. Mire-Ahl was thought to be forgotten spirits of the Asidhria. They were kept on earth because Glerdh would not let them pass to the other world.

Asidhria: Abrehl

Warriors carved from trees. They were carved by Ahdophu and were brought to life through Abrehl.

Aehr: Jhodia

These are great golden eagles who serve the elven communities, they have strong defense and have a ranged attack, once killed the Aehr will train again at the temple at a cheaper rate.

Rohl: Bihre

These are creatures with an upper body of an Asidhria and the body of a lion. These creatures attack by leaping onto the enemy. They are strong units but are very expensive.

Sorceress: Meia

These are the priests for the elven community, they have a strong attack but are little HP. However they can heal allied units so this unit would be great in a large group of other Sorceress’.

Diahr: Dohriea

Diahr are ultimately the scout for the elves. It’s got a great speed and its LoS is tremendous. However it has neither attack nor defense.

Enteau: Gherri

These units were originally created by Eauva as a present to her sister Abrehl. Arbrehl had no use for them on the ocean so she transformed them into creatures of the land. They have a strong attack but a weak defense, their attack is a hack attack.

Chomort: Lehyal

Lehyal wanted to create a present for his brother Phol so he put together parts of all the strongest fallen soldiers he had seen in time, Phol rejected the rotten present but Lehyal wasn;t bothered because he himself wanted to keep it. It has no defense but a mighty attack. It’s three arms all hold a different hack weapon (sword, spear and an axe.)

Thaqwa: Hefe

This creature has the special ability to freeze other units in time for a short period of time. Its main attack is hack.

Defhi: Phol

This is a creature that is not afraid to die. It should always lead an attack because it has a strong attack because of the fact it has swords where its hands are supposed to be.

Buildings

Kard: (House)

The Kard is very expensive to balance out the game (units only take 1 pop space unless it’s got more than one unit eg. Cavalry take 2.)
Only 7 Kard can be built after that TCs must be taken over. Holds 5 pop.

Samnoulin: (Mill)

This is where the artisans are upgraded and where resources are collected.

Estolad: (Collection Tent)

These are free collection points. When an artisan is instructed to gather a certain resource he will build a tent near the resource.

Samna-Cuar: (Archery)
Here you train cuar (archers), cuarno’roch (Horseback Archer) and Altacuar (Ballista)

Samna-Megil: (Barracks)

Here is where you train and upgrade Megil-edan (Swordsmen), Etha-edan (Spearman) and Gonram (Catapult)

Barad (Tower)

Samna-kirya: (Dock)
You can train these ships at the Samna-kirya;
Belkirya (Transport Ship)
Courkirya (Archer Ship)
Atsacair (Fishing boat)

Samna-mainka (Market)
At the market you trade items.

Ugh. Go play War3, please.

--- Twelve encarnations of evil attacked Earth in the last 12000 years. The elves have foreseen that another one will do the same. Tahattus is the 13º encarnation of evil, the last one, and battling against him will change all the rules about the things... --- Zumas Poéticas, 2300 B. C.

why wc3?
i hate it's gameplay - it's just not the same. AOM's is much more fun.
Even if it has elves in it this won't be the same and I would appreciate constructive comments - if you don't like the idea then don't even go into the thread.

Thanks

Thanks for the comments - we haven't started yet because Wavey's cd is broken and he needs a replacement but it's coming.

An addition to the Elves (I would like your opinions)

Omnibus/Scribe
Attack: 0
Pierce Armour: 0
Hack Armour: 0
Crush Armour: 0
Speed: 2
LoS: 15
HP: 150
Production time: 14
Pop: 1 (maybe 2)
EDIT: Forgot to mention it's purpose. Garrison inside a drop off point and that resource production will increse by 10% add another to increase production by 20%. Only three Omnibus/Scribe (which one do you like more) can be assigned to each resource.

I would love your comments and suggestions on the new addition and maybe some units you would like to see.
