Re: Campaign dialog log

That's because we all know who those characters are. There's some cases where the speaker is just whichever of your units moves to a specific hex, or even just whichever unit the game flags as an 'advisor' for dialogue. In those cases, having just the name could be confusing. Well, yes... but on th...

Re: Campaign dialog log

Why? If I look at, say, https://github.com/wesnoth/wesnoth/blob/586e6df1a08dbdc3836a1288d88bcc84b5f32365/po/wesnoth-tb/wesnoth-tb.pot#L1254-L1267 (from AToTB), I can follow the dialog well even though it only gives the speaker's id, not their portrait. That's because we all know who those character...

Re: recommended campaign sequence

I prefer another system - there are many villages in the map and AI have the constant flow of money from villages so there is no 'the first and the last' wave. You either win the battle for villages or you will be overwhelmed with time. So you simple cannot sit and wait while AI will break his forc...

Re: Which faction do you think is the most difficult to play?

Klanga is the hardest faction. I literally know only one person who constantly has very good results with them and in general people tend to struggle while playing as them. I think their main problem is a lack of offensive power. They've very difficult to attack against, given how Dwarvish Fighters...

Re: Female Avatars

I'd argue that's just one of many archetypes for mages. There's so many famous female magi in folklore and mythology - Circe, Medea, Morgana Le Fay, Baby Yaga, I could go on. It's just a shame that we don't have many characters who look to those myths for inspiration, but so many of the 'Sage' arch...

Re: Female Avatars

Then there's the curious case of the Wesnothian mage - half of all recruited mages are female, but almost all of the named mages that I can think of are male. Seriously, think about it. Delfador, Leollyn, Methor, Moremirmu, Minister Hylas, Minister Edren, the Red Mage Twins, Elrian, Ratheln, Seimus...

Re: Female Avatars

Instead, societies like our own, gives men and women the same options, so when we see a woman in this role it's seen as out of the ordinary and when something is out of the ordinary, it means there's some kind of story behind it. The thing is though, the societies in Wesnoth actually do put women o...

Re: Era Artworks (Army of the Night & Soul's Order)

The Soul's Order sprites are really good, and show a lot of creativity in coming up with unique unit aesthetics. The Army of the Night sprites are more simplistic, mostly being Loyalist frankenstein & recolours, but you've executed that concept well. If you're planning on using these units in game, ...

Re: EarthCake's units

Try to picture the guy's arm behind the shield. As it is, he'd have to be contorting his arm to quite an uncomfortable angle to bring the shield directly in front of him like that. A more natural grip would have the front of the shield facing slightly more to his left. Does that make sense?

I had a look and the north-facing Skeleton is fine for me.

I do get the same issue with the Berkserker though.

Re: The Succession in Heir to the Throne

Wasn't the succession system in England also strictly patrilinear? Until there came the point, when there wasn't any male heir left, and all of a sudden it was actually ok for a woman to become queen? It's probably the same here. That's not strictly patrilineal (or agnatic) succession. It would pre...

Typo in the second ringcaster paragraph - I believe "those few" should've been "though few".
