After much though put into our character system, the following races and classes have now been set in stone for Might and Magic X: Children of the Void.
Human, Dwarf, Elf, Lizard
Some of you are already familiar with our racial choices. They have been chosen from the most commonly occurring intelligent races in Might and Magic games. Our new innovation will be delving deeper into the world of the lizard men, which have appeared in Might and Magic VI, Might and Magic VIII, and several of the Heroes games. The home of the Lizards in Might and Magic X will be a region in mid-Iranese in between Great Arcan and Aranorn, and bordering Lake Sleet (where the final battle between Elwin and Lord Harke occurred in Heroes of Might and Magic IV.) We have named this region Wasteland of Woe and it will be home to many different lizard tribes, such as the ones seen on the Dagger Wound Islands on Jadame in Might and Magic VIII: Day of the Destroyer.
Knight, Paladin, Archer, Ranger, Cleric, Druid, Mage, Monk, Thief, Pirate, Vampire, Lich
These are the 12 starting classes in Might and Magic X. Each class has certain skills that they are able to Grandmaster. We will be discussing the addition of a special ability for each character class that is independent of skill. As a brief example of this, we could allow the vampire class the “vampiric” ability where it gains a certain percentage of life based on the amount of damage it deals to a foe. The MMX team will meet and discuss these special class abilities sometime in the future.
We hope you enjoyed this surprise update and please stay in touch for more updates. There will be several additional bloggers from the MMX team who will each write articles once a week when they’re available. You will hear from different people in different departments and hopefully walk away with a better idea of how MMX is operating. Of course it will get more interest invested in this project, which is one of our primary project goals! So to wrap up, I would like to thank you very much for your interest in MMX!
