U do realize that sentient animals are a huge component of fantasy right? Reference Shelob from LOTR/countless examples in other books. <had to cut it down a bit>
As for Singed, technically he leans more to Chemist side than the Steampunk site, but still illustrates how someone manipulates their own body via research and science (via Lore). But you're right, he's not Steampunk, he's something else.
Skarner: he's a remnant of an ancient civilization, more akin to a prehistoric creature with a second chance at life....not an alien.
Yes I do realise that but my point was that they could walk around, talk to others (not sure about Anivia on that though) wheras Shelob was just a giant spider, she wasn't capable of talking to other people, use tools or even visable signs of emotions such as compassion, anger, rage or happiness.
Well yes he is a chemist (hence his title "The Mad Chemist" but I was just wanted to point out he wasn't steampunk plus steampunk isn't about people manipulating their own body, it's about technology being powered by clockwork and/or steam.
Skarner? ahh well...I didn't know too much about him in all honesty. I just love his Sandscourge skin

I agree with this.....mostly. IMO, Steampunk has its place within the Industrial Revolution, or even the Victorian Era-esque times. While these time periods are definitely different from the one chosen for this game, I don't think that the devs should exclude the use of technology altogether (please keep in mind that I'm not saying you u don't want any tech in the game). The medieval era extends to 1500 AD, with the use of black powdered weaponry seen as early as the 1300s (Europe). So, I think these type of weapons have their place, but to what extent?
< had to cut it down sorry>
I agree completly with this and the suggested replacement tech such as repeating crossbows, Greek fire and stuff are pretty interesting!

You could make them golems stone, earth and wood to start off; and as the game progress, they become more metalic.
I like the idea of Golems in the game. It fits the Medieval setting aswell as the Fantasy!
