is it just me or are the people from Triumph Studios having old (most), robed geezers as males wizards and young, beautiful, and scantily clothed (sometimes not anything) girls as female wizards?

Here's the link: Behind the Magic: Part 3

Whoa, MAB has better armor than Juila's!

Is it just me, or does Karissa and Anon have a hand-drawn look, while Mother Mab looks much more "computer generated"? Especially the faces.

Um...Karissa hangs out with the orcs eh? That would be some whacky shelacky Uruk'Hai...if you catch my drift.

Heh...I wonder if there will be a Girls of AOW2 Gone Wild DVD?

And...Anon=Morgan Freeman.

Aww heck...I feel like saving y'all a few clicks in order to see Karissa... Heh...maybe I should add a Not Safe for Work/School tag.

Thanks Draco for putting up the website. I was only able to see the pictures of the characters and it was hard to figure out who they were. I think I like Anon the best of all the wizards I have seen because of his alignment with the Life sphere and his close ties with the Archons (the highmen were one of my favorite races in AOW, if not favorite). I wonder what ties he has with Gabriel. Hey revalos, I agree with you that Anon looks somewhat like Morgan Freeman (what a cool actor--- I love his performances. He adds such grace and majesty to his characters).

Hmm....so that is why the two new females are more scanty in clothes; they need to seduce many lustful heroes to their side, especially Karissa. I am not so sure why Mab is wearing scanty clothes, unless she likes the more natural look since she is trying not cover up her body. Beats me... maybe a dev could help me understand her motive.

I hope in the remaining wizards we see a female that is more "normal" and not specifically arousing to the male audience (not every female in fantasy has to be promiscous... we could use positive role models for girls to be what they want to be and not forced on the "be just pretty" stereotype). BTW I am a guy and I am happily hetero, so don't think I am mentally messed up concerning girls. I like pretty girls, but I just think they should be what they want and not what the opposite sex thinks. However, I am not saying that I hate the present female wizards I would just like to see something different in the next one (very hopeful).

BTW Draco, I noticed the same thing too about Mab looking like she seemed CG and the others two seemed to look hand drawn. It might just be an illusion though.

Quoted from Draco:

Whoa, MAB has better armor than Juila's!

Armor? I am not so sure I would go so far to call that armor. Take a look... Her clothing looks more like something out of a cover of a beauty magazine when you check out of the grocery store. I can't imagine her clothing could protect her from cold steel or etc. Maybe I am wrong about that. However, Draco, I do give you the benefit of the doubt, since we can't see here front side.

I wonder what will be the mature raiting of the game. Here is a screenshot : http://www.worthplaying.com/press/38/SB_LifeDomain1280_wp.JPG (see the nymph up there)
Maybe that is a some sort of marketing to attract more people to buy the game? (joking)
However there will be cool if we see gandalf like looking wizard too.

Any ideas on these Globles?
Fire one
and
Earth one

Could they be a means for transport?

Talk about improved swamps!

Those globes look weird. Bet the devs show us those just to laugh at our stupid guesses of what it is...

And that swamp is beautiful!

Unless...

We make non-stupid suggestions!

Hmmmm... How about dimensional prisons.
Maybe they don't know what to do with them as well?

I think this globes are some teleport spell, cause in both pics you don`t see the wizards, just other units, so they might be just appearing in the level.
ahhh... forget about that!

But I must say that I dont like it much till now.
I dont like it that all Wizards are human and have might about the other races and I don`t like this overmighty godlike Wizards which could create races by themselves.
At least Im content if there a lesser Wizards as units just a bit stronger than priest or so.
But also I would like to see some non-human Wizards, when I think about it I don`t want Mab to be an female goblin .
But I liked MoM althoug there were overmighty human Wizards too. (Not thats not true, there was one Draconian)
Hey Devs, will all Wizards be humans, even in the
Multiplayer?
Ahem, sorry I just remembered that there weve already seen a hafling and a dwarf Wizard but I think you get what I thougt.
Any gueses what the next three Wizards will be.
I think one female Elvenwizard
And on some pic was an old Icewizard, the city on his screen looked very strange, maybe draconians,but Ice and Draconinans...

Hmmm.... The earth wizard has built/cast something called a "farcaster"...maybe that has something to do with it...

Nice touch to make the wizards for goblins and orcs female. I thought they would be male for sure.

Now if you excuse me I have to go and take a shower. A cold one.

Male Wizards = Old bearded guys.

Female Wizards = Beautiful young girls.

Guess which one most people will be picking.

If the orcs follow such a fine young (young looking anyway) lady then one wonders how on eaqrth you will defeat them.....

I don't knwo if it is just me, but the fact that the orcs are following a female kinda reminds me of the internet games I played against Elquein...dammit I think she was near unbeatable

oh well.......aow2

This questions is actually addressed to the devs, but anyone can answer it.
There will be more mages per race avaiable, right? And will ya be able to put items in heroes. I mean of course you will but will you be able to put armors/shields and etc. ?
I know this is Turn based strategy but can we expect a ..errr....it is too greedy (I use greed cause I dont know the word in english but it some sort of it). So Will the hero chage its outfit on the "adventure" map when you put him a masta full heavy plate mail for example?

The last 3 wizards for next week looks to be male ice, male death and female life.
posted 04-04-02 06:35 PM EDT (US)     25 / 49  
Yeah probably right. I would guess it to be:

Female life - elves
Male death - undead
Male air - draconians

Has anyone noticed this before? this picture is the entrance pic to the AOW II main site. If you'll notice, we can see the last two male wizards. The first in the top right next Gabrial(sp?) I think could either be the air or water wizard, judging by his floaty hair and whatnot (reminds me somewhat of neptune). The other which we have seen before in the Arachna screen with the diplomacy. This man in the bottom next to Karrisa and Arachna could only be mister undead. As for the last wizard/wizardess I can only guess.

posted 04-04-02 10:23 PM EDT (US)     27 / 49  
I never saw the guy on the way top of the circle, next to Mr. Floaty-Hair-Neptune. Was he previewed before? :\
posted 04-04-02 10:32 PM EDT (US)     28 / 49  
i think thats Gabrial.

I love the hot sorcerecess, however, i think that ONLY elves, humans, and dark elves should have attractive females. I personally thing that the orcs and goblins should have old goblin hags and witches.

A hot woman just does not strike me as being very orcish.

BTW- Those "smiles" appear to me as white boxes with red x's in the center. Little help?

.....

Let me get this straight...we're complaining about the abundance of scantily clad female wizardresses?

Are we talking about the same game? Or is this the HOMM4 board with the scantily clad wrinkly old men and fully clothed massive babushkas?

I'm an equal oppurtunity player...I think if we've got old guys in one corner...why not have the other corner populated by young women?

Note: Wizards are not directly tied to Races, they are tied to Spheres of Magic.

And if there are ugly withces and hags, who will play with them. In AoW 1 there are some very unpleasant looking heros, that I never select for the leader.
And who tell old hags and withes havent cast a spell for beatuniness upon them :P , haven't you watch moovies?
...But it doesnt match an orc to folow elf. I hope the race relations are still same strong.
