Re: Proposed Race Description For Wose

Hello all, Zookeeper thank you for your encouragement! Shadowmaster thank you for your suggestion. I have reworked the sentence to read as follows: "What little is known of this ancient race comes from elvish scholars who believe that this mystical power, which the mightiest elves have dedicated the...

Re: Proposed Race Description For Wose

Looks plenty good enough to go in. Thank you! I believe it is very close to a finished work, Shadowmaster may be on to something. You misspelled “sylphs”. This is really just my opinion and I’m not an authority on mainline prose in any way whatsoever, but whenever unit types are explicitly named li...

Re: Proposed Race Description For Wose

I forgot to mention that someone who I discussed this with (one of “those who know more about such things”) suggested “oddly shaped, yet noble” rather than “noble, yet oddly shaped”, which I also prefer. I also forgot to mention that I particularly like your replacement of “extremely” with “grievou...

Re: Proposed Race Description For Wose

First off: 8680- Thanks for the input! I didn't even register that little faux pas, I'm not surprised it's a common misspelling. I've decided to take your advice and change the phrasing to {a noble,yet an oddly shaped, tree} it just makes sense, as you said if one person misreads it; it's likely tha...

Re: Proposed Race Description For Wose

Thank you all for the input! I feel as though some great corrections were suggested and some big changes were required. I have rewritten the description with MOST of the proposed changes. Some suggestions I have not used, yet, because I believe some proposed corrections don’t best suit the descripti...

Re: Can Wesnoth be more than just a great game?

All discussion aside, Fabi I will check in with your group, or the group, of which you speak after I finish my current project (race descriptions for a select few mainline groups). I apologize for my absence on this particular thread! Thank you for the input all.

Re: Proposed Race Description For Wose

The input is great friends, I greatly appreciate it and I will incorporate it as soon as possible, most likely tomorrow evening! Nit-picking is absolutely welcomed! Point taken about the wose shaman, however I did not realize that race names were not capitalized. Thank you for pointing that out. I'm...

Re: Proposed Race Description For Wose

Okay, I have incorporated the changes suggested and have also added the Wose Shaman and their weakness to fire/arcane. If anyone has any suggestions please don't hesitate to point them out! Wose The mighty Wose resides within the deepest forests of Wesnoth. To the untrained eye, the Wose appears to ...

Map Editor 1.10.6 Problem

Hello all, I don't know if this the correct place to bring this, however I have noticed a problem with the map editor in 1.10.6. I don't know if its on my side of the keyboard or a bug, however the editor works correctly in 1.9.9. I say correctly because the editor opens and can be used, however the...

Re: Proposed Race Description For Wose

It's kind of conventional that "Irdya" isn't mentioned in-game except in context of particularly arcane knowledge. Also, "Mother Nature" seems a bit out of place considering that (AFAIK) there doesn't seem to be such a concept in Wesnoth. Very good points Zookeeper along with the rest of your post,...

Re: Is there an Events & Eras Overview?

Unfortunately due to the large volume of user content no source has been compiled that fully holds what you are looking for, to the best of my knowledge. However this page may be of some value to you http://wiki.wesnoth.org/Guide_to_UMC_Campaigns as might this one as well http://wiki.wesnoth.org/Tim...

Proposed Race Description For Wose

It was pointed out to me that portions of the Wesnoth race cannon remain unfinished in some areas. As directed I have put together an overall description of the Wose race. Any feedback is welcome and I am open to any reasonable suggestions. This description follows mainline Wesnoth, which it is inte...

Re: Can Wesnoth be more than just a great game?

wolkenwand is correct in that the help file entries are completely missing for these races (but not for the individual units). If you are interested in making a UMC campaign and your skills are in writing/art I would suggest maybe teaming up with someone else who has the skills of coding (speaking ...
