Re: [mainline] Renaming Khalifate for Wesnoth-ian identity

I think there’s some slight drift off topic starting to occur. Let’s keep this simple. I would like to see this done in time for 1.14 All of this being sorted and into 1.14 is my focus for driving this discussion forward. It does not have to be 100% perfect, but I would like to see the faction, rac...

Re: Introduce yourself here!

Welcome - it is good to have someone willing to do story/dialogue work or play testing for their people’s add-ons. Often the ideas are not what is in short supply, but the actual refinement of existing content.

Re: [mainline] Renaming Khalifate for Wesnoth-ian identity

So many newly suggested name have come since the poll. Why aren't we thinking of poor Turuk? I know right? So many things to account for in one poll. Also I feel a bit sad that Nomadic Empire wasn't included. I included only two options at the end of Dune and Nomad with Tribes and Kingdom, but obvi...

The latter. Pentarctagon is only seeking to establish that the artist is agreeing to the specific license that is being chosen.

Re: [mainline] Renaming Khalifate for Wesnoth-ian identity

I don't think all the MP factions need to be renamed. They have their flaws, but I think they describe their theme well enough. I would not say all of them, but Drakes and Undead suffer from that flaw and the Loyalists and Rebels are perspective based names. I like Knalgan and Northerners fits well...

Re: [mainline] Renaming Khalifate for Wesnoth-ian identity

Aldarisvet brings up a really important point. I'm pretty sure Xalzar is right, but I'd like to see Turuk confirm. Yes, we are voting for the MP faction name. Woses are not elves but can fight with elves against Asheviere's loyalists and hence can be rebels too. Concerning that we have 'Undead' mul...

Re: [mainline] Renaming Khalifate for Wesnoth-ian identity

I would have voted Nomads too but I seem to have spent both my votes on Dunefolk by accident? I like the sound of Nomadic Kingdom or Nomadic Empire more though. As I thought people might change their minds throughout the discussion, I turned on the option to change votes as long as the poll is open...

Re: [mainline] Renaming Khalifate for Wesnoth-ian identity

(even one using an anachronistic second world war style backpack flame thrower; a device seemingly quite a bit too sophisticated for even the byzantine greeks) I had to go look back through my notes to remember where I was going with the description for the Naffat line. It was mostly based on the h...

Re: [mainline] Renaming Khalifate for Wesnoth-ian identity

The idea of a sprawling nation with expansive communities like towns that move around rather than permanent cities, save for the capital. I'm loving it. It matches the romantic feel of expert Arif swordsmen and artful Jundi warriors, the enigmatic Hakim, and the wandering Rami and Khaiyal. It speak...

Re: [mainline] Renaming Khalifate for Wesnoth-ian identity

I like the idea of Nomads and I agree with every point you're saying actually, and yet I feel that it is the wrong identity for the faction. My biggest qualm is that the unit feel of the faction implies a large organized society, not wandering tribes or nomads. I would say that there are a number o...

Re: [mainline] Renaming Khalifate for Wesnoth-ian identity

The reason being, of course, that many people think the Khalifate was never quite properly grafted to the Wesnoth lore or so, in that their religion, backstory, and underlying theme was not fictional enough and was based on a limited range of culltural motif from our world I do believe that it coul...

Re: [mainline] Renaming Khalifate for Wesnoth-ian identity

I apologize but is there any way we can redo phase 1 as multiple choice? No need to apologize, that’s a valid point and will help in the process. I have edited the poll to let everyone pick their top 3 choices. Let me know if you have already voted and it does not let you pick additional options. A...

Re: [mainline] Renaming Khalifate for Wesnoth-ian identity

Turuk said on the previous page that he'd be putting a poll together soon, so I think it's just a matter of waiting for that. Yes, I was just waiting for people to hash out or provide any and all options they wanted for consideration. The poll has been made and I have included what appeared to be a...
