Re: [mainline] Renaming Khalifate for Wesnoth-ian identity

Agreed. I always thought it was out of the question here and had been getting tired of arguing it. If it is so, you might want to remove from the OP the part "What Kind of Peoples/Civilization", as it explicitly raises questions about the lore. If it is about the name, both 'Dunefolk' and 'Southern...

Re: [mainline] Renaming Khalifate for Wesnoth-ian identity

Also, it would probably be best to keep this thread focused on the faction/unit renaming. Which isn't to say that the other topics shouldn't be discussed, but just that they should have their own threads - one for unit/faction descriptions and lore, another for unit balancing, etc - so that things ...

UMC follows vastly different standards, and sometimes hardly any. Base Wesnoth has to be consistent all throughout. Doesn't mean we can't learn from UMC though.

Re: [mainline] Renaming Khalifate for Wesnoth-ian identity

I really like the name Dunefolk... Well, I guess Southerners would be fitting as well, but then they somehow are always bound to a location, the south. What if they want to change their location at some point? That's my bit to this topic. :) Although I was the first to suggest Southerner/Southern K...

Re: [mainline] Renaming Khalifate for Wesnoth-ian identity

I have a couple of words to say why I do not like idea of Southerners positioned as Nomads. First of all, we have orcs for this. Just look to the race description of the orcs. The orcs is barbaric nation that periodically made raids on civilized settled nations living in cities. From the other side...

Re: [mainline] Renaming Khalifate for Wesnoth-ian identity

Lobbying against a faction in a fantasy game isn't a contribution to the fight against the Islamic State. Funny you mention that because most of the existing political sentiments regarding the amendment of the current name stem from exoticism. The posters here with a social agenda want to avoid ove...

Re: [mainline] Renaming Khalifate for Wesnoth-ian identity

Hey Turuk, for the faction poll can we add the name Nomadic Empire? It seems in line with my previous vision, plus it has this poetic almost-oxymoron that I think makes the identity more unique.

edit: Oh wait these are the finalists. Damn.

Re: [mainline] Renaming Khalifate for Wesnoth-ian identity

]I don't think a revote is needed; it doesn't look like anyone would be changing their vote towards something that isn't already in the top 4. Also, Nomad Kingdom is already on the list. Actually, wouldn't it be best to simply wait for the second run of the poll? Adding one or two — but no more — a...

Re: [mainline] Renaming Khalifate for Wesnoth-ian identity

What the word 'faction' means then? Does that mean 'a multiplayer faction' or not? For you, "orcs" and "elves" are names of factions or not? Yes this is explained in the main post. There is a distinction between faction and race name. Although yes it wasn't clear enough in the poll. I propose that ...

Re: [mainline] Renaming Khalifate for Wesnoth-ian identity

Ok, given I got a new information, can I revote please? This should be doable - in the poll at the top, uncheck your current choices, check your new choices, and submit vote again. It seems only you see this option, because neither he nor I can see what you described. This is actually an argument f...

Re: [mainline] Renaming Khalifate for Wesnoth-ian identity

May be it was already discussed, by I see that it would be logical that given we would have Dunefolk race, we would get Southerners faction. We have Notherners faction already, why not get Southerners. Damn, I cannot understand what for we vote now. When I voted for Dunefolk, I thought I vote that ...

Re: [mainline] Renaming Khalifate for Wesnoth-ian identity

I would have voted Nomads too but I seem to have spent both my votes on Dunefolk by accident? I like the sound of Nomadic Kingdom or Nomadic Empire more though. As I thought people might change their minds throughout the discussion, I turned on the option to change votes as long as the poll is open...

Re: [mainline] Renaming Khalifate for Wesnoth-ian identity

Voted Dunefolk and Nomads . For one thing, the fantasy of a nomadic people with a constant capital as described by mintleaf sounds awesome to me and for previously stated reasons I don't like a lot of the suggestions: Thank Turuk for that! I would have voted Nomads too but I seem to have spent both...

Re: [mainline] Renaming Khalifate for Wesnoth-ian identity

For some reason; now that it looks like my TXE era will be far off, if ever, I guess I want to compile and publish what I've got because it is unlikely that I'll ever do anything with it — at least insofar as pertains to Wesnoth. Would anyone here be interested in that at all? If so, where would yo...
