I was wondering where the heck do the skeletons for the orc bireme ship and row boats come from. Since it looks like some kind of animal that if you can put the animal in the game. Hunt it for food and use the bones to put armor on our ships instead of just upgrading a ship and then some type of animal bones appear not knowing where it came from...tell me what you thinkg

Dinosaurs inhabited Mythador before the elves, men, and orcs came, of course!

Nah, I'm not really sure... Could be a royal dragon skull. We also have some mysterious beasts that are mentioned but not seen, at least not in the initial release version. Could be remains of the dragon leviathan unit that was planned.

Short answer: Use your imagination. ;)

True. Maybe we'll explore them in a later DLC. We do have some larger post-release units planned. :)

We have not knocked off anything, Orcs (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orc), Elves (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elf), Dragons (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dragon), Wargs (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warg), Dwarves (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dwarf_(mythology)), etc are all mythological creatures that cannot have any patent, its like trying to patent the word "House Cat" and if anyone uses it you can sue them; good luck with that.

Now if we make a black robed undead guy with a sword and call him Nazgūl (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nazg%C3%BBl), then we would have a bad time with Mr.Tolkien.

True. Just watch out and don't use the words "face" and "book" because our friends at FB are working on copyrighting them...wow.

Oh well I forgot one exception about patent laws, if you through enough money at them they will eventually patent anything you want, even life.

This just gave me a crazy interesting idea. I'm all for cosmetic features to make things have a personal feel to it. It would be interesting if there were some quest's where you defeat some dragon or behemoth of a monster. Or even conquer some bandit camp, and then take back trophies to decorate your city or it's walls.

Imagine how terrifying it would be to attack a castle where the walls are decorated with the bones of a giant sea serpent. (They beat something that big? 0.0)
