I remember Warcraft 2 online, Warcraft 3 never did substitute its predecessor.

The Lusitanians came from the sea and mixed with the native Iberians, the Celts mixed with the Iberians aswell when they arrived, hence the Celtiberians.

If it already was invented, it will always be known by someone.

Celts came from Austria and spread almost everywhere in Europe. They were great settlers but poor empire builders. The Celts made their way into the Iberic Peninsula hundreds of years before the Carthaginians and the Romans.

jfpoliveira12 @ [2] Lesson in Blood (Co-Op Mission)

Yes, but this mission, like Nod1, set the stage and feel of the whole faction in the game. I love old C&Cs; and Warcrafts because they were so brutal and the devs were not afraid of having a player actually think about the horrors of war or playing an actual evil army.

You can't stop wars that already happened though, and the weapons tech will always be there.

A lot of geneticists and biologists believe human DNA was tampered with and is not a true product of natural evolution, evidenced by the fact that we outcompete all other species in the planet by a very large margin.

Funny enough, the celtic tribe that once inhabited the area where I come from (Oporto) was different from other celts in that they said one of their ancestors was a dragon. The romans called the Draconians and they worshipped the Dragon Father instead of any other celtic god. They believed that once they died, if they were strong and versed in war, they would meet their Father at the Gates of Sheogh to fight the Demons that came from Sheogh with burning spear and arrows of light.

That would be a horrible idea, imagine someone giving nukes to Hitler.

A classic, to bad it is too brutal to make missions such as this in modern wargames.

High fantasy is like Warcraft, Dungeons and Dragons and Warhammer, where magic is abundant and there are multiple known magic users and magic items.
Low fantasy is where magic is rare and either requires divine/demonic assistance or is just heavily ritualized so you cannot just speak a sentence and cast a fireball, magic users and items are rare and usually the stuff of legend, like Excalibur and Merlin.

Also, George Lucas envisioned Star Wars as a space samurai setting, so a lot of the historical references come from Japan, even down to the Jedi being space Kensai (Sword Saints), with a lot of buddhism and shintoism added in to the Jedi code. Qui-Gon Jin's last name (Jin) is actually a Bushido precept that says the warrior must be humanitarian, which explains why he was such a noble and patient man that valued all life, even his enemy's, and was trying to avoid war at all cost.

Actually, both LOTR and Hyboria are low fantasy, though LOTR has all the tropes that usually go into high fantasy settings. In fact, one could say Tolkien invented the fantasy literary genre by reengineering old mythologies and a few religions.

LOTR was inspired by european mythologies, the Bible and the events of WW1 and WW2. The Eye of Sauron, or All-Seeing Eye is based on the Gestapo grip on countries taken by the germans, for example.

Only an advanced civilization could forge things in crystal, or perhaps even grow them. The Atlanteans are even more of a possibility.

Nice, rings were always important in european mythologies, maybe this one really is magical and allows the owner to exert unlawful influence over others.

The Philistees and the Phoenicians both had gods that the Bible identifies as Satan (Moloch for the Phils, Baal for the Phoes) because these gods demanded child sacrifices in their worship. Maybe this will help?

This is incredibly stupid and utopian, everything has a cost, if you are not earning your living, someone else is paying for it and that is just not fair.

What, setting Master Chief as an example? If it was proper parenting he would be plated as a Space Marine.

Goths then, they are cooler as barbarians than Teutons, which are better as Medievals.

And yes, I did check the stuff you made so far, Nabaceans look quite good.
