MMHK Mondays, Part 3
“On the Brink of the Brink of War”
Somehow my alliance has managed to avoid war for the past week, but our peace won’t last. My faction shares a border with our rival, and we can’t both keep expanding without more disputes arise.
MMHK Monday Part Two
A lot has happened with my little Might and Magic Heroes Kingdoms fiefdom the past week, so let’s get to it.
The biggest event was my decision to subscribe. The free version limits how many cities you can control and heroes you can recruit, each at three, and this week I expanded enough to be able to afford a fourth city. So I bit the bullet and paid the fifteen bucks for an Ubisoft account.
Ubisoft was very happy I did this, and gave me 20,000 gold as a thank-you present. I used that to recruit my fourth hero, a Disturbed Wizard I plan to utilize as a magic/military asset. Here he is:

Godstoria, formerly “The Bible Online: Heroes,” is a browser-based MMO strategy game that puts you in the sandals of Abraham, the legendary father of Israel. It starts as a straight up city-builder: you begin with a tiny Hebrew tribe and expand that into a strong city-state. Godstoria then gets ambitious by trying to incorporate Abraham’s journey to the Promised Land, Canaan, as it appears in the actual Bible. Adding an over-arcing story to an OSG is an intriguing premise, but the execution leaves Godstoria feeling like a first draft.
Might and Magic: Heroes Kingdoms — Part One
“Spreading the Gospel of Jim”
Hey! I’m Jim, the new guy here at osg1. Mostly I’ll be reviewing games, but I’m also going to provide weekly recaps of what happens in my MMHK game.
I recently reviewed the game here, so these recaps will focus more on so exploring the game’s various features than they will on criticism—although there will be some of that, too.. I also plan to use the week’s events as a springboard for further discussion, on themes like gaming strategy, personal playing styles, how to deal with other human-controlled players, and anything else that might come up. Every player is different on these issues, so please feel free to add your own thoughts!

Rating: Worth a look
Ubisoft’s Might and Magic: Hero Kingdoms, (not to be confused with the Heroes of Might and Magic series), is a tabletop-infused OSG that feels more like a solid PC strategy game than the browser-based game it is.
