Re: clean-wesnoth: cleaned up images in wesnoth

Looking at the censored images... 1) There was nothing wrong with the usual Shyde's dress. Nothing that wouldn't be seen at a swimming pool at least. 2) I'll concede that maybe someone was careless about that sprite of Li'sar with legs wide open, and find it bizarre that an actual warrior - as oppos...

Re: Undead campaign: Descent into Darkness

Yes, Dela is meant to be untouchable, because no one's bothered to make dialogue that accounts for her not being on the battlefield when Malin gets away. Nothing you do will work, so don't waste too much time.

Re: A question about Necromancers...

Concerning D&D Golems and Skeletons... Golems are magically created automatons of great power. Constructing one involves the employment of mighty magic and elemental forces. The animating force for a golem is a spirit from the Elemental Plane of Earth . The process of creating the golem binds the un...

Re: A question about Necromancers...

Sorry to break into the topic again. Just a few closing notes. ...Yes you do. Even if they are willing to fight for you*, if you can use the undead instead without committing crimes worse than murder, then you have a share of the guilt for causing every single death your side suffers, because you c...

Re: A question about Necromancers...

I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree on that point Velensk - the way I see it undead = construct made from a thing that was once alive. Indeed, I don't even agree one hundred per cent with the poster that people all feel bad about playing the bad guy. The Dark Hordes is one of my favourite c...

Re: A question about Necromancers...

What do I need it for? If only for my personal gains, then neither is morally defensible. If for the benefit of the people concerned, then I shouldn't have to force or coerce them into fighting, so don't need to assemble a moral justification. ...Yes you do. Even if they are willing to fight for yo...

Re: A question about Necromancers...

I'm merely arguing my opinion based on the evidence we have available . If you remember, the only part where I expressed a definite conviction was the ghosts and ghouls. The skeletons and WCs were my opinion based on the evidence at hand which I stated that I was willing to see reason on. I agree w...

Re: A question about Necromancers...

On what grounds? Unlife is reversible; death is not. I don't see what that has to do with anything. The whole reason we have a taboo against committing murder, over and above other physical assaults, is that death cannot be undone. If your boy dies, you are never getting him back . Period. You have...

Re: A question about Necromancers...

...Did you miss the bit where Jetryl said he was shooting for moral ambiguity with the necromancer descriptions? By definition, that means they're deliberately written to leave room for an interpretation that includes good necromancers. Even if we assume that necromancy is an actively corrupting cri...

Re: A question about Necromancers...

Please bear in mind that, as revealed by the gushing descriptions of the elves and the fact that the Thunderer line are never explicitly described as using guns, the in-character writer of the manual is not one hundred per cent unbiased, and certainly is not an expert on necromancy. To all outside a...

Re: A question about Necromancers...

The impression I got was that skeletons and WCs have no souls entrapped - they're just robots made out of dead flesh and bone. Ghouls are implied to be made of living people though - but that's no proof that the soul remains in the body after the transformation, I guess this is one interpretation, ...

Dialogue Bug in Liberty; Scenario 4

Not doing a full feedback as I can't honestly think of anything that should be changed to make the scenario better than it already is (apart from new graphics for the DS / Skeleton Rider...). Posting because for some reason I can't be bothered to fix in the WML, as of 1.6.1, the ending dialogue does...

Re: A question about Necromancers...

@turin I'll give you that, but irritating door-to-door salesmen are hardly worthy of being the villains if they have no other crimes to their name, and any amount of actual heroic derring-do would mitigate this irritating action quite a lot. As for me, I probably wouldn't mind so much provided he di...

Re: A question about Necromancers...

The way I see it, for all its unpleasant trappings, necromancy is a power like any other, and only as inherently evil as the person who wields it. At first Malin Keshar is pretty unambiguously good, but the hatred and despair and loneliness from being rejected by everyone who should have cared about...
