Hello everyone! I'm a new fan of HM and I find that HM is just what I was looking for: D&D style yet easier to learn and enjoy.
And at the same time, I'm also a fan of Battle for Wesnoth, an turn based open-source tactic game (view here: I'm not quite sure, yet IMO, the campaign editor function is a crucial factor to keep Wesnoth alive and ongoing attractive, and so many campaigns designed by fans will add to a vast world. So I was wonder that, will one day HM also has functions like that? I guess that will need lots of hard work, yet this is indeed a inspiring idea that seizes my heart.
As a non-native English speaker, I hope I didn't make your guys confused too much  :) I will try to clarify if there is anything unclear.


Hi Makoto
I am sure that would be appreciated, but right now the focus (especially since D20 games is a rather small company, as far as I know only consisting of Ross) is on the competitive multiplayer mode.

I like battle of wesnoth too and played it quite a bit with some friends of mine. :-)

There are already others who would like a (multiplayer-)campaign.


Hi ili64
Thanks for your explanation and I think I understand the situation now : )

Except the campaign, another point of mine is that I supposed by using an editor, some capable players/ programers may also help to improve this game in many aspects, which would spare Ross some potential work.

However, now I realized I may be too realistic. HM is not an open-source game like Wesnoth after all, and the pattern may not be also suitable for it.


I think/hope though that something like that will come one day! It would be a feature I would appreciate, too. :-)

I'm curious what the potential would be for an open source Hero Mages... Particularly if there were artists willing to contribute animations.

It's funny you mention that as I just commented on another thread that you seem pretty busy lately with raising a family and all.  I wish I had the talent both artistically and programming wise but I just dont.  It would be great if you had talented extra hands to help volunteer their time to develop the game further.
