The Press Says
There are currently no topics for this game.
Heroes of Might and Magic III made a complete major screw-up in Greek Mythology. This refers particularly to: the Gorgon
and the Medusa
In Heroes, the Gorgon is a fire breathing/death staring Bull from the swamps. In Greek mythology, the only creatures that closely fits this description are the KHALKOTAUROI
. The Khalkotauroi were a pair of fire-breathing bulls forged from bronze by the Smith God Hephaistos as a gift for Aeetes, King of Kolkhis. These bulls were later killed by famous Greek hero Jason, in his quest for the Golden Fleece.
Now the GORGON
in Greek Mythology actually refered to a race known in Heroes as the Medusa. Gorgons are a race of vile creatures that had hair of live snakes, necks covered with scales, they have tusks similiar to of a boar, golden hands and bronze wings. Oh, and they're famous trade mark: anyone looking at them would be turned to stone (due to their extreme ugliness).
Initially there are 3 known Gorgons (other sources say there were more): Stheno, Euryale and their most famous sister: MEDUSA
. Medusa was later killed by the Greek hero - Perseus.
