The Press Says
There are currently no topics for this game.
The race "Highmen" in AoW
was renamed to "Archons" in AoW 2: The Wizards Throne
. Reason? The devs didn't like that the sound of the word "highmen" is quite similar to another English word, which means something completely different....
During final testing it was discovered that the Nymphs' nipples could actually be seen at 200% zoom. The Nymphs were given some more clothes in the final game....
