Re: A... well, not _useful_, but amusing script

:shock: What I'd like to see is for someone to recall whose names those are of.

edit: This turned out to be my 133th post. Coincidence?... :twisted:

Doesn't it frighten you that if I just said "No," it would present an equal, if not better argument than you have made? :annoyed:

Re: How to play Knalgans

Thunderers are good for shooting people... in the face. They've got an advantage over poachers in the day time, they're better at hills and mountains, and have better resistances. Also, an 18-1 attack makes for a great deterrant against enemies attacking low health thunderers because they might afte...

Re: Mabye northerns balance needs a second look

My personal take on Northerner balance is that its design philosophy is countersynergetic with Wesnoth's game mechanics, so it gets shafted in practice without appearing too bad on paper. - Northerners have no units costing over 17, and those that do cost 17 are specialists. This means that the nort...

Re: New faction: Order of defenders.

Simply call your pikemen "Order Pikemen"

Wesnoth has the same named units like that all the time. Spearmen/Goblin Spearmen, Elvish/Dwarvish/Drake Fighter, and that kinda junk.

Re: Need help with "The Rise of Wesnoth" campaign

Now that thugs, footpads, and thieves can level up to 3, there's really no reason for you to not use them extensively.

Re: Need help with "Northern Winter"

Sounds like you need to replay the ford level and use more mermen/mermaids on that level and save your groundpounders.

Re: RNG superstitions

Burners have anti-marksman - they miss constantly when attacking, regardless of defense.

Shamans will miss both shots if slow would have guaranteed that the target won't be able to kill them next turn.
Too true!

Re: New Unit- Bomber

A. 25-1 isn't a very powerful attack at all, considering a mere spearman can do 21 damage (7-3)in a melee without suiciding.

B. Why would this new unit make the game better? What hole in the knalgan or loyalist roster would this unit fill?

Re: New unit?

What faction would this unit be in?

What era would that faction be in?

These two questions are... kinda important >.>

RNG superstitions

What with all this talk of the RNG flying around, I think it'd make an amusing thread where we share our superstitions regarding it... I'm sure you all have at least one :wink: Mine :eng: : - Once or twice every game, an Ulfserker will do something amazingly good or amazingly bad. - A disproportiona...

Re: Is it worth it?

Sorceress is better at melting face
Sorceress uses an arcane attack useful against undead and elves
Sorceress has a more reliable ability to slow enemies
Sorceress can advance to level 4

edit: Oh, also, the sorceress has substantially more HP than druids... if that counts for anything.

Re: Places where I think Wesnoth could improve. DRAFT

My 2 cents. 1. The randomness is actually not that big of a deal. While it may be unfair in the context of duels between two units, the overall fact is that so many dice are thrown over the course of a game, there is usually not that big a difference overall. 2. The way I see it, levelling units is ...

Re: New faction: Order of defenders.

Allow me to play as the bad guy for a second: This idea is totally ridiculous. Now I don't mean to flame (or rather, I don't mean *just* to flame?) but the thing is, a backstory does not a faction make. It's all good and fun to have a backstory or theme in a faction, but you need more than that. Wha...
