III. HEXOTAGSET v2.0 FEATURES:
================================================================
A. NEW UNITS:

BALLISTA
Author: Uthuan (Anton Napiera)
Email: Uthuan@usa.net
Cost: Non-Tradable
Type: Ranged
Description: The Ballista is strictly a defensive unit. It cannot
move and fires large arrows that can kill most melee units
in one to two hits. Use them to protect your castle or
stronghold from enemy units.
Special Attack: None

CAVALRY
Author: ReAnimator (Craig Matchett)
Email: matchett@newrock.net
Cost: Four (4) Points
Type: Melee
Description: The Cavalry is the much-anticipated mounted knight unit.
He is faster than a ghol and attacks with his lance and can trample smaller opponents. They are a very strong unit, but cost twice more than the other melee. They are best-used in hit and run tactics due to their incredible speed.
Special Attack: None

CATAPULT
Author: ReAnimator (Craig Matchett)
Email: matchett@newrock.net
Cost: Non-Tradable
Type: Ranged
Description: The Catapult is the ultimate ranged weapon as it can
decimate entire armies from a distance. It fires large boulders
that bounce and cause damage on each rebound, so tight packs of
units are the best targets. It can also be used to break down
walls and other objects. As a special ability the Catapult can
fire a multiple rock blast that operates on the mana system. This
feature is called 'Stone Shower' and is initiated by pressing 't'
key and selecting a target.
Special Attack: Stone Shower - Fires a multiple rock blast at selected target.

DRAGON
Author: ReAnimator (Craig Matchett)
Email: matchett@newrock.net
Cost: Twelve (12) Points
Type: Flying
Description: The Dragon is death from above. It scorches it victim with
flame and fire and can often fly away unscathed from the incident.
Dragons also have the special ability to ignite the ground on fire
with flame called 'Dragon's Breath'. To use this feature, simply
press the 't' key and select the desired ground target. Be warned
however that a Dragon is not faster than a Griffin and usually must
flee whenever one is sighted.
Special Attack: Dragon's Breath - Ignites the ground on fire, damaging any units it hits.

GRIFFIN
Author: ReAnimator (Craig Matchett)
Email: matchett@newrock.net
Cost: Twelve (12) Points
Type: Flying
Description: The Griffin is the melee version of the flying unit. It can
attack only with its claws, thus are lower fliers than Dragons, and more susceptible to artillery attack. They rule the skies due to their fast speed and fierce attack.
Special Attack: None

PIKEMAN
Author: ReAnimator (Craig Matchett)
Email: matchett@newrock.net
Cost: Two (2) Points
Type: Melee
Description: The Pikeman is a defensive Warrior. He attacks with a long
pike that is two (2) to three (3) times as long as a lance. This
makes them formidable opponents from the ground as they can attack both much larger units and flying ones as well. Be warned however that once a unit is inside the Pikeman's range they are extremely vulnerable.
Special Attack: None

V. SPECIAL THANKS
================================================================
Extra special thanks to BadThrall who did the final tag sorting and renaming and without whom this never would have been finished.

A special thanks to all the multitudes of beta testers that have tested our incredibly lag and buggy plugins and maps: our homies and former members Lemur Lord and Badthrall, all the prime guys (Angus, Beerman, Siclops, Apple G3, Rem, Banshee, Wallace, and Ulric), Carbon, Periodic, Cataclysm, Tino, Attaboy Skip!, Conner, Mechjock, Zeronova, Hungry Ghol, Losk, all the Creation folks (especially BADTHRALL,Ares, Clem, Milk Man). Also thanks to the Vista guys (especially fisj and iggy popped), Manus Celer Dei, and Santa's Head for help and testing along the way. And a big thanks to everyone we missed here, and you know who you are.
