Re: The Fall of Wesnoth (Storyline discussion)

My recollection is that there was slightly more context in UtBS which hints at the reason that their power failed: they either got out of practice, lost some needed lore, or there were too few mages of sufficient power to do the job. (Check this before proceeding...) If so, there is wiggle room for...

Re: Planning a Khalifate campaign - Ideas needed!

Well I probably jumped the gun a bit earlier inviting other people on as its not my campaign.

But if you come up with a good idea I will incorporate it.

Re: Planning a Khalifate campaign - Ideas needed!

Ah boo, Bennoman beat me to it. I was gonna volunteer, :( Hopefully there's still a spot for me. I am trying to get back into writing while not actually being able to code at the moment. Well man why not join in? Two heads are better than one and all that... You've shown on here you can write, and ...

Re: Planning a Khalifate campaign - Ideas needed!

Um... I am ok at grammar. But you should probably make it so when the story ends (as you said) have them in Wesnoth so other people can create further campaigns for them. Post2: So whats for the first scenario? Do they start as mercenaries or do they become that in the campaign? I honestly don't kn...

Re: Planning a Khalifate campaign - Ideas needed!

Its called the Anabasis? Well that would explain why I cant find it in book shops! Iam a silly billy. As for doing the dialog and story for this campaign yes sure I would love to. I have commitments with work and university at the moment but I am sure I can find the free time to do this. Though word...

Re: The Fall of Wesnoth (Storyline discussion)

I think we are almost there! However one last major thing i would insist on is that Evad has nothing to do with the fall. No killing of mages or anything. I would have it as he is waiting for this to happen, hes been waiting for 1000s of years for this to happen, and has no need to force his hand. I...

Re: Planning a Khalifate campaign - Ideas needed!

I have an idea taken stright out of the history books. The assumption this story lays in the fact that the biggest difficult for any empire is that of succession. Countless wars have been fought over who should ascend to the throne after said monarch's death. In particular I am thinking of the story...

Re: The Fall of Wesnoth (Storyline discussion)

Excellent man I am liking your story arc for the island and how they escape, plenty of room for all kinds of good storytelling, plot twists etc... I say go with what you got mapped out there! Only point would be is that Evad would not be responsible for the fall of the sun, but he is complicit in hi...

Re: The Fall of Wesnoth (Storyline discussion)

Ok... but the minister of justice is alive. I suppose Evad is controlling him another way. I honestly don't get what you mean by "its being added for the sake of being added" :???: By that i literally just meant it seemed like it was being added for no real reason. If you look at alot of ...

Re: The Fall of Wesnoth (Storyline discussion)

How about this: Evad is both the minister of justice and the terror of the three sisters! Evad has confined his soul into the ancient lich's body while also keeping his own body alive. Basically, he's divided his soul into two parts, one part controls the lich on the tropical islands, and the other...

Re: The Fall of Wesnoth (Storyline discussion)

...Are you suggesting that Evad is in Wesnoth? On the Three Sisters? Or is he 'living' a double life in both places? (that'd be cool) Also, I was thinking the prisoners wouldn't fight for Rovistar, but have to survive on the island in exile. Literally living a double life. I was envisioning as he u...

Re: The Fall of Wesnoth (Storyline discussion)

Ok so I have been thinking and I believe I have come up with a great idea of how you resolve the problem of Evad being in the story from right from the beginning so he is not suddenly dropped on the players lap in surprise. It also sets up a few nifty plot devices and explains the relationship betwe...

Re: The Fall of Wesnoth (Storyline discussion)

So, you clearly know that useless multi-posting is wrong. I'm a little confused at why you did it anyway rather than just editing and/or deleting the needless multi-posts. Please do explain. wow seems a rather extreme response! I edited down to as they are now, seemed the appropriate thing to do. I...

Re: The Fall of Wesnoth (Storyline discussion)

right I think your really on the right path with the penal colony story.... It has tremendous room for all kinds of storylines etc. Plus it adds motive to the protagonist to act against the main source of authority in the age... which is the empire. However lets consider a few points. The rivalry be...

Re: Divisions of the day

Hi, I would be of the opinion to keep to hours and minutes, just because its something familiar. If we were replace hours and minutes, you then have to consider how time is recorded and divided, and then you come across the problem of how long is a day in Wesnorth? What suddenly becomes an exercise ...
