Runes

I mentioned before about Runes... these are Heroes & Castles form of a "soft" loot system. Runes can have 1 or 2 effects, ranging from bonus armor, bonus damage, healing abilities, lower unit costs, increased gold income, and a bunch more. In the future we'll be adding Runes that can imbue your weapons with fire, holy auras, and other effects that have unique properties only against certain enemies. There are literally thousands of combinations that you can find, and it is a cool way to further customize your heroes, even giving them a little flexibility beyond their inherent specialties.

Runes can be found after clearing a "stage", and come in many variations such as Common, Uncommons, and Rare Runes. Of course the more rare, the more powerful. Better Runes are easier to find as you progress through the game.


Paladin


The second hero is the Paladin. The Paladin is a support hero, focusing on healing and making other units stronger. His attacks are highly disruptive, though not very powerful, and his health and armor are average. He has above average speed and running ability. His abilities range from a powerful, stunning blow called Retribution, to a Blinding Light passive which slows down all enemies in an area, to a powerful Holy Vengeance ability, which increases damage of all friendly units around him. Visually, the Paladin's abilities are a sight to behold, with huge light ray auras that give him a very "holy" feel.


His elite unit is a powerful mage, which heals all units around him while dishing out massive damage with powerful ranged magics.

Does this mean we will see more heroes as time passes?

Maybe it means that at release there will be three heroes but later there will be fewer.

We've built Heroes & Castles with expandability in mind, and we have a ton of cool hero ideas for the future

No price point yet, but we'll be sure to release that info when we get closer to release - shouldn't be long now! Was planning on releasing a trailer a while back, but we just added a host of awesome new effects that have to be shown off Not to mention we've already improved a lot of the environmental graphics compared to whats in those early screens.

@Foursaken So, every hero will have 3 skills, and the ability to summon an ultimate unit?

3 active skills and 3 passive each - so 6 total skills and a special unit. Of course they also all have unique stats, attacks, and a rune slot as well.

We'll get to more about general gameplay, units, your army and your castle defenses more after we wrap up the hero intros!
