Actually, I have to retract a bit from my initial position. It wasn't really 100% accurate
My favourite hero of Age of Mythology
is the goddess Athena
. I immensely like Reginleif, but my real favourite one is exactly the Goddess of Wisdom and War (military strategy). She always helped Arkantos in his own long journey and quest; unveiling to him the dark purposes of Poseidon over the rule of the World. I also like her very much in general, as she is really a complete and fundamental deity in the Greek pantheon and legacy
She is present in the game both as an available goddess to choose for the classical age, and she is also included as a hero-unit too. A pity, though, that she's not playable neither in normal maps nor in the campaign. The very model doesn't really have particularly important features and can't attack either.
In addition, I'm planning to create a map/campaign about the War of Troy, remaining loyal to the direct sources of the Greek epic poetry (something that I studied and translated a bit from Ancient Greek in high school). That is, I intend to deal with the last period of the war, when the final battles get tougher and when the very Olympians join the battle, taking different sides. So, may I also ask if anyone of you is very much acquainted with the Editor of the game and in creating scenarios; I'm too quite acquainted with it due to a frequent usage in the past (childhood memories), but I still lack knowledge in some fields as well, and I would thus be very pleased if someone can be of help. Not to mention that we could open a new Age of Mythology thread and exchange ideas there more efficiently and interestingly.
In case someone wanted to participate, just let me know
