Age of Wonders I Wiki

Highmen are tall, pale-skinned beings believed to have descended from the heavens. Most are taller than the average Human, but with less individual variations in appearance. Highmen project a serious demeanor and seem to have a very limited sense of humor. They are highly respected by the good beings, while many of the neutrals and evil beings view them with distrust and suspicion.


High Men society is built upon a foundation of strict order and purity. High Men participate in few forms of entertainment and relish tranquil relaxation above more earthly pleasures. It is thought that the High Men spend most of their time protecting the world from evil, especially the Undead, but they are rarely seen away from the battlefield, and the other races know little about them.


The Highmen are a magical race by nature and rely heavily on their supernatural abilities in combat. They fight most effectively against their archenemies, the Undead, but fare well against most other races also. With the aid of the Valkyries, Holy Avengers, Titans and Astra, the Highmen are able to hold their ground and continue fighting against the powerful forces of evil.
