Re: Too many campaingns have you fighting orcs/undead.

I will address your post in two parts; the first regarding your second paragraph and the second regarding your first. Orcs as a Warrior Society You state that the combination of fast breeding and warrior society is unlikely, citing a video that makes a good many valid points. However, the first flaw...

Re: a comic about Wesnoth, and the forum around us.

Hehe. Nice one. ^_^ A little difficult to read the first line, and might be even better if the second picture had a date from 2010 or something, but pretty good nonetheless.

Re: Too many campaingns have you fighting orcs/undead.

But Joram your elves already are truly evil when they plot to kill every orc to the last one all over the continent "preventively". I mean how much further can you go? At least for me such a story doesn't work when it still is presented as the morally right side. (In Fires of Pride.) I do enjoy pla...

Re: Too many campaingns have you fighting orcs/undead.

To be fair, I don't think anyone has asked for exceptional individuals who are different. I apologize if I left that impression (my comment was more open ended than I intended). Basically, the story will involve a massive rescue attempt for a kidnapped elf; the orc will end up joining up with them (...

Re: Too many campaingns have you fighting orcs/undead.

Yes indeed. I wasn't meaning to imply that we don't currently have a campaign with elves as the villains, as there's another couple campaigns that have villainous elves as well. I wasn't a huge fan of SoF's villains back when I first played it several years ago because the elves were just nameless, ...

Re: Too many campaingns have you fighting orcs/undead.

I certainly don't think the answer to making the orcs sympathetic is to start bashing the elves. Flipping the compass and saying that the poor saurians are the good guys doesn't change the issue, it just changes who is sitting on which side of it. Personally, I am against campaigns which make elves ...

Re: The Fires of Pride (0.3.0)

Hi jkekoni! Thanks for the feedback. After some thought, I think you are right. Objectives should be spelled out clearly, and not given in 'in-story' language (hey, I knew where the mountain was. What more do you want? :P ). Save the prose for the dialogue and narration. Public Service Announcement:...

Re: Campaign art - Sceptre of Fire

Just wanted to say that the artwork in this thread is so great that I've been lurking around here just so I can watch the new stuff come out. These portraits are awesome, and you should be very proud of your work.

Re: Too many campaingns have you fighting orcs/undead.

A little late to the discussion, but my $0.02 is that fighting orcs and undead a lot isn't too big a deal. Worse is when you have a scenario fighting elves/dwarves who are just "Don't step on my land! Because you walked too far to the left, I'm going to kill you now!". It's pointless carnage. I thin...

Re: Best and Worst MAINLINE campaigns and scenarios

Campaigns I have not played all the way through: Northern Rebirth, The Hammer of Thursagen, Son of the Black Eye, The Legend of Wesmere, and Dead Water Yikes! What am I doing in this thread? :shock: Anyway, my tastes definitely run to the short to mid length campaigns. The long ones just get dull af...

Re: What is your favourite scenario?

The first 6 scenarios of HttT; combination of nostalgia and the fact that they just seem to be well designed down to the smallest detail. Not a single spot of terrain feels 'thrown in'. Plus, the rebels are one of the best factions to play in campaigns, as they're so versatile. I also happen to like...

Re: Books discussion

I have been reborn! Actually, I picked up the first book in The Brothers of Gwynedd Quartet , by Edith Pargeter ( Sunrise in the West , The Dragon at Noonday , The Hounds of Sunset , and Afterglow and Nightfall ). After reading lots of recent books, it was a breath of fresh air to go back to someone...

If you wonder why Planeshift was included, it's because they're the ones that started the whole thing. :P
