Re: And idea of generic tutorial campaign

A plague you say? I say not. It is not over used its merely common for its a trope you are ether on the offense or on the defense. Typically a offensive war is lot less justified in having good morels. So far there are no "evil sided mainline campaigns" as far as I know. However the "I was attacked...

Re: An idea of generic tutorial campaign

I don't like the idea of the tutorial being humorous because it'd be so out of place given the tone of the game. I also dislike the idea of a generic campaign with heroes of different races, as it goes completely against nemaara's suggestion that campaigns should have a good, cohesive storyline. Al...

Re: An idea of generic tutorial campaign

Well, you can see an example of dialog between a hero and adviser in my previous post. It can mention any important tactical aspect actually. Would it be about terrain defence rate, resistances, movement restricts, alignment, traits, special abilities, about how to chose best unit to counter another...

Re: And idea of generic tutorial campaign

Would the "evil lich" part of the scenario really fit if the player plays undeads ? I think your idea of a treasure guarded by a Skeletal Dragon cover better this case. Anyway it could be nice but this means you have to find a way to have a different set of dialog for each race. There is a problem ...

Re: Removing mainline campaign(s)

I could in theory finish the HttT arc in a few months if motivated to do so (not counting the HttT rework). That is great! I think that is quite a generous suggestion actually and should be accepted given nemaraa ovbiously have some talents in creating stories. I suggest to give carte blanche to ne...

Re: And idea of generic tutorial campaign

The first couple campaigns in the first arc of the reworked single player story were stated to be Novice level campaigns, so I don't think it's accurate to say that there'd be a lack of beginner campaigns. If the campaign demands playing two races at the same time - elves/humans in reworked TSG and...

An idea of generic tutorial campaign

Since after many years of ossification I see that Wesnoth became more open to changes in mainline content, several problems arise. I mean Wesnoth mainline content is like a badly constructed house. You need a new good house, but you cannot get it instantly so you can not get rid of all bad things im...

BTW, there's a typo in the thread title. This thread should show up when searching the forums for An Orcish Incursion.

Re: An Orcish Incrusion: some questions and ideas

In timeline it says nothing about merfolk until year 626. Maybe instead of controlling orcs the player could control merfolk, and the merfolk and the elves both attack Rualsha in the last scenario, thus making an alliance. This could interlude with events of LoW, since merfolk should come to aid th...

Re: A grand design for singleplayer mainline lore

So, no one kidnapped Mebrin, he left himself? That is an interesting idea but will make useless all that battles with bandit brothers that supposedly kidnapped him. Actually that can be good partly, because I found nothing funny when you fight with the first brother and kill him, then the same with ...

Re: A grand design for singleplayer mainline lore

I really like nemaara's plan. At least we will see not blatantly evil Asheviere but some motives under her actions. Such things should have been done 10 years ago. Still I think that adding young Garard to TSG will not save this campaign's plotline. What it's storyline is about? Some bad guys kidnap...

Re: Dunefolk Rework - Base Units

I see new images in the database. http://units.wesnoth.org/1.15/mainline/en_US/mainline.html#Dunefolk In addition to mentioned above, Swordmaster, Blademaster and Paragon are also reworked (they are clear samurais now). Which I really like because I do not like that 'fat with thin legs' Zerovisus's ...

Re: An Orcish Incrusion: some questions and ideas

If the player keeps switching sides, how does the progress of one side affect the other side? Will doing well in the orc scenarios make the elf scenarios harder? Nope. There is no need in it. In fact it would be 2 different campaigns just interwoven by scenarios order and united by the same storyli...

Re: An Orcish Incrusion: some questions and ideas

Actually that tower could be build by elves or dwarves in some ancient times so that is the explanation. And about the lich, that of course it shoudn't be that they accidentally met that lich in the swamp. Possibly Linaera had some issues with that lich and asked elves to help her against the lich f...

Re: An Orcish Incrusion: some questions and ideas

Heh, yes, merfolk, I just was thinking about them. Good they are near. I was thinking that the first scenario of this campaign should be on the orcish side with orcs attacking woses and someone else. That someone else could be merfolk. So orcs (possibly with nagas help) killed woses and merfolk (liv...
