Default Epic Heroes Mod -Version 1.5 Released

Epic Heroes Mod gives a unique thematic hero at the start of the game to each Middle Age(MA) race. The hero is intended to be Epic. Epic means game changing. Races that otherwise could not take anything but an awake pretender now have options. Races that could care less about a bless-may be tempted to take one.


This mod is compatible with Dominions 3.10 and also with the Worthy Heroes Mod by Turin, and the Reduced Old Age Mod by LLamabeast. I strongly recommend both of these mods.


It can be downloaded at:

You wouldn't need new sprites if you just set the #startscout to the number of a hero already in the game, or one in the worthy heroes mod.

I'd suggest starting an idea pool. If people from the community can suggest their own ideas, they'll want to at least download the mod and see what came of their idea. I'll start:

I'd like to see MA Agartha start with a statue of some kind. Perhaps not a Marble Oracle, as that'd be a bit overpowering, but a statue of an Earth Reader from EA, or perhaps a Troglodyte statue.

The worthy heroes are great. I love that mod, but i was thinking of a new additional hero to start the game plus the 4 you may or may not get during the game from the worthy heroes.

And I agree with endoperez, ideas of an ideal hero for each of the nations could be gathered to give each a classic(hopefully) hero.

There would definetly be an interest. I did the same thing with maps such as "Poke in the Eye"
http://www.dom3minions.com/RandomMaps/Poke_Eye_v3.zip
And its been well received by many. Of course mine is pretty random. You get a different one each time you play on the map. Yours would be much more logical so Im sure it will appeal to many players.

I think the statute is an awesome idea.

The goal i think when creating an epic hero, is to draw the line a bit short of the hero being able to take provinces solo at the start of the game.

I was thinking of having a black phoenix for Abysia, which would be immortal, undead, 2d 2b 2f 2unholy, fr, and radiate heat.
But the phoenix would only have 9 hps and 3 prot.

So it would be a deadly hero once spells were researched, and would be great at searching for gems early, but would not be able to take provinces early solo.

The theme will be something along these lines:


The Dark Lord captured and tortured a defiant Phoenix in the depths of Hell. As the proud creature died the Dark Lord laughed knowing the creature would serve him after its death. At great personal cost, the Dark Lord reanimated the ashes of the Phoenix and imbued his new general with great power.
But the arisen creature, through a twist of fate or the subtle intervention of an outraged Sun God, retained its former will, and escaped its would be master. Needing protection from the enraged Lord of the Dead, the Black Phoenix cast its lot with Abysia, a kindred race.

Statue idea is good, but then I think Agartha being able to recruit Telestic Animates would be wicked-cool.

Black Phoenix for Abysia sounds wicked-cool as well.

Love the idea, worthy heroes is used consistently in every one of my games. I also used the online randomizer to get a random commander for that same reason (more of an RPG feel), but something thematic and balanced would be cool.

Eventually it would be nice to have a second set of 4 heroes (a la worthy) but you only get 1 random at the start, and they are never able to show up again barring wish.

I'm only familiar enough with a few nations to be of help thematically, but I'll think on it.

I think I can do the black phoenix graphic. Hook me up with the image you were talking about and give me a couple of details - size etc.
