Re: SotBE Back Home on Medium - Flar'tar is suicidal!

Don't help AlBrock and go for Flartar with everything youve got to spare. So, If I don't help AlBrock, he would die too - for the exact same reason. He sees, what, 4-5 units approaching him in the snow with reinforcements following, and instead of fighting them from within his castle - he sends out...

SotBE Back Home on Medium - Flar'tar is suicidal!

I'm playing Son of the Black Eye on medium difficulty, and am stumped by the "Back Home" scenario. There are 4 enemy leaders: 3 Human General and an Elvish Champion. On my side, there's Kapoue, there's Gruu with his trolls, and two idiot Horde leaders, Flar'tar and Al'brock (Orcish Warlords) Now, th...

Re: Scenario Review: SotBE 12 - Giving Some Back

I'm posting a link here to a bug report regarding this scenario:

Loyal assassin not auto-recalled in SotBE "Giving Some Back"

and actually, the same thing happens in some later scenarios: Plonk is not recalled while Jetto probably would be recalled.

Re: Loyal assassin not auto-recalled in SotBE "Giving Some Back"

i have played few mainline campaings too and not all campaings the loyal units is recalled, But if I have two identical loyal units, it doesn't make sense that if one of them is killed, the other is recalled, but if the other is killed, the first isn't recalled. also you should post it on the mainl...

Same thing occurring in "The Dwarvish Stand" and in "Back Home".

Loyal assassin not auto-recalled in SotBE "Giving Some Back"

I'm playing Son of the Black Eye - well, on and off - for the first time, and enjoying it :-) I've reached Scenario 12, "Giving Some Back". Strangely enough, one of my loyal troops - Plonk the Assassin - is not recalled. I'm used, from most campaigns, to all Loyal troops being auto-recalled when the...

Re: Advice for Son of the Black Eye S9?

I'm also playing SotBE at medium at the moment, and it's quite challenging for me. On what difficulty level were you playing this level, by the way? At any rate - your suggestion got me through the level! The key points which worked for me: It's the economy, stupid I : Focus on village tagging with...

It's a weapon special, so none of those others make any sense.
Not really: We see it as a trait of the _character_, without weapons being mentioned. Thus we have "Strong", which is about Melee damage.

Include all of my suggestions from the first page of this thread then... also, we'd need to make it kind of ranked-choice or Condorcet poll.

Re: [mainline] Melee "marksman"

I'm against "Accurate". Reasons: * "Accurate" applies just as well to ranged weapons. Better, even - since there's more aiming involved and accuracy is more important. * "Accurate" applies either to piercing weapons or to small ones. You're going to call a guy with a club accurate? Or a Dwarf with a...

Re: [mainline] Melee "marksman"

But, we also could just use "master" by itself couldn't we? I don't think so. It's too general and too vague. It could indicate being in a relation of mastery with a person; it could indicate being higher-level somehow; it could indicate being the first, or most important, unit of the same class; a...

Re: [mainline] Melee "marksman"

Vyncyn : You make a valid point, but "swordsmanship" is not an adjective. I have another idea, though. How about "blade master"? While it doesn't apply to people with clubs, tentacles etc. - it does apply more widely than being a good swordsman. (I still like Mêleur the best though, and it's as gen...

mattsc: Should I try to hold the _entire_ water front, all the way south? Your screenshots don't show what you've done in that part.
