Re: Dunefolk(previously Khalifate) race description

It was, but in this case all the units are already shown as Dunefolk Human on the right side-panel, so it's really just a question of if they should be explicitly mentioned as being Human in the race description as well or not, and if so then how. This is exactly my point. It is given for certain t...

Re: Dunefolk(previously Khalifate) race description

All of the units say "Dunefolk Human" in the sidebar, so I'm not sure saying it in the description as well adds much. If it were added though, I would swap it around, so: An offshoot of a forgotten nomadic civilization, the human Dunefolk lay claim... Sure, swapping it around is equally good. Still...

Re: Dunefolk translation

Aside from copyright issues, I find 'Zensunni' quite uninformative, and it will feel weird also for those who know those books (I personally don't). The whole renaming process was motivated by the wish of making names more understandable than the arabian-sounding versions. What is wrong with the li...

Re: Dunefolk(previously Khalifate) race description

We feel that Kwandulin's wyvern rider sprites are too busy and elaborate and such. I do eventually want to add a full unit line for the wyvern rider, if we can get additional sprites that fit better with Sleepwalker's original, but for the first pass, there will just be the single unit. I might agr...

Wyvern rider: a single unit
Well, then I have an objection in the sense that I'd like to see a full unit line for the Wyvern rider (also since sprites are available, and they don't look too bad to me).

Re: Dunefolk(previously Khalifate) race description

Alright, well, since no one has said anything in the last few days, I assume there's no other objections to the above set of units. In which case, all that's left is coming up with some stats for them(which I can do), and then seeing if another a more fitting sprite of the level 2 Roc can be made(s...

Re: Dunefolk(previously Khalifate) race description

I think I actually like these ones better than Vyncyn's... though Vyncyn's are still pretty good, they just seem to evoke a different kind of bird than I envision the roc being. My 2 cents: I really prefer Vyncyn's sprites. In my opinion they look more majestic and threatening. @zepko: Thanks! Yeah...

Re: Dunefolk(previously Khalifate) race description

along with more Wyvern sprites mentioned here that are part of Oath of Allegiance The wyverns from OoA are basically the same already mentioned in the previous post, just there are more of them. I would like to see this unit line added to the game (if the authors agree, of course), that can form a ...

Re: Dunefolk(previously Khalifate) race description

Whether they're too big I think in part depends on if they're part of the regular recruits or not. Being able to recruit units that overflow the hex wouldn't look that good. In any case though, it sounds the following possible units to add have been mentioned: Roc - ( sprite ) - This could either b...

Re: A Little Adventure

Hi! I have played all but the last scenario. First of all, the premises intrigue me, an expedition to unknown lands, reaching the sea in the east. Then I have to agree with skeptical_troll: I tried the highest difficulty and I was badly beaten multiple times in the first scenario. At the easy level ...

Re: Dunefolk(previously Khalifate) race description

My answers. I am taking much of it from my post of some weeks ago [1] . 1- No objections from my side. 2- No objections, but we should not change the focus of the faction. 3a- By ship. At some point, the desire for exploration intrinsic in the human nature lead them to the sea in front of their land...
