Heroes (Warloc, Overlord)

Specialty: Warrior's Sorceress: All Spys, Assassins, and Rouges in Nasyavv's army gain +1 to their Attack and Defence for every two levels of the hero, starting on first level.

RANLETH: Its roots as old as the dark elves' themselves, hatred of the dwarves runs deep in Ygg-Chall. Ranleth comes from an old family who has guarded its lineage as it has nursed its grievances, and the greatest of these is against the Dwarves.

TINK: Tink was unknown by most gnomes back in their underground city, and still after the dwarves found it. But, during the Second Winter, Tink stumbled across the Great Roc Nest.

When she first appeared among them, few recognised that this nubbin of feral frenzy was in fact a dwarf. But Ebba soon gained prestige and even the loyalty and adoration of those stern warriors of the North, the bears. (Runelord)
Lady: All Bears, Blackbears and Polar Bears in hero's army gain +1 to their Attack and Defense for every two levels of the hero, starting on first level.
TINA: Dwarven miners searching for tin chipped this gnome from a shell of solid stone where she had been imprisoned for centuries. No one knows how she got there, not even her, so the dwarves named her Tina. All that remains is to find out who she is and where she came from. (Rune Priest)
Specialty: Lady of Stone: Tina supplies 5 ore at the start of every week.
KROG: Krog is an orc who, as a child, was seperated from his parents and left alone in the woods. He would have been killed by wolves, if Darlig, the rune priest, hadn't been hiking. Nearly stepping on the child, Darlig raised Krog as his own. Now the two have an inseperable bond. (Runelord)
Specialty: Orcish Runelord: Krog starts with the 2 basic Warcries, as well as the ability to use Runic Magic.
DARLIG: When the gnomes were discovered and dwarves started using technology, many rune priests felt they weren't needed anymore and disapeared. It's lucky for Krog that Darlig wasn't one of them. While on an hiking trip, the priest nearly stepped on the child, who lied in the snow. Raising the orc as his own, he trained Krog in the ways of Runic Magic. (Rune Priest)
Specialty: Orc's Luck: Darlig never has negetive luck. Also, he can never have negetive moral if Krog is in his army.
DAG'RASOK: Deep down in the bowels of the earth, the incandescent heat of the bubbling lava lakes serve as the homelands for this lava dragon. This fire-breathing monster will reduce their enemy to a pile of ash, and can also leave in his wake a wall of flames that will continue to burn long after Dag have moved on. (Rune Priest)
Specialty: Draconic Capabilities: In addition to his normal damage, Dag'Rasok leaves a fire wall in the place where he has attacked his target. The fire wall lasts for 2 turns, and deals 10 damage per turn and 5 more for every level of the hero, starting on the second level.
KING METROCOG: Metrocog, the son of the late king Mechelmuk, is the king of the gnomish people. Though not a constently loved king, he still does a great job. Elected during the Second Winter, He tirlessly helps king Tolghar in his quest. (Rune Priest)
Specialty: Gnomish King: Metrocog contributes 250 gold pieces in kingdom treasury per day. He also has a 2% per level discount for troop training in Fortress towns.
ZIZEE: Zizee is THE gnome rune priest. He is quite smart and learned about Runes almost directly after the gnome's discovery. However, making changes in a gnomish way, he renamed himself a technomancer. Zizee only wishes to open his dream: Zizee's School of Technomancy! (Rune Priest)
Specialty: Technomancer: All Gear Warriors, Soilders, and Engineers in Zizee's army gain +1 to their Attack and Defense for every two levels of the hero, starting on first level.
KING TOLGHAR:Though a good man, Tolghar lives in constant fear: fear that he is not good enough for his people; fear that he is not pure enough for his god; fear that he may be taking the wrong decisions; fear that the chaos surrounding his country will eventually affect him. He is easily manipulated by counsellors and kin who have learnt to play his fears like a "bhak-zad" -- the dwarven pipe organ. (Runelord)
Specialty: King of the Stone Halls: All creatures in Tolghar's army have "Rune of Thunderclap" effect permanently active (it refreshes at the start of the creature's turn).
The campaign follows at first, King Tolghar, until you uncover the Gnomes. Then the story moves directly to Zizee the Technomancer, before ending as King Metrocog and Zizee. The dwarves are also featured in the tutorial level: Krog and Darlig.
Heroes (In General)
To explain heroes, every one has a unique model (Krog is an orc riding a mammoth, Dace is a minotaur on a lizard, Dag'Rasok is a lava dragon, ect, ect) They can enter combat, have multiple heroes at once, have creatures with no heroes, and heroes with no creatures. So, basicaly HOMM4 heroes with specialties. There's even a few HOMM4 heroes in the mix! Inferno
Tier 1. Imp: More like the HOMM4 one but yellow like HOMM3. Trained at Crucible.
