Re: Orc units - graphics

After Tolkien invented orcs, they appeared in many fantasy games and wesnothian orcs are "classical" orcs for sure. Yes. As an example here's a Bloodbowl orc: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-PCtJ95XKW0Y/Ts0ICPKHeuI/AAAAAAAAAjI/2zrUzP5z_Is/s1600/P1040164.JPG Looks pretty similar. And here's a picture from...

One last question, I couldn't find the Roar of the Woses, but there's one called Story of the Wose, could be this one or it hasn't been ported to 1.14?
No, Story of the Wose is a different campaign. Roar of the Woses might haven't been ported to 1.14 (yet).

Re: recommended campaign sequence

Do not forget about user-made campaigns from Add-ons section. Much of content there is better than mainline one. In my opinion. Yes, there are very good ones out there. But a lot of them is quite mediocre and/or incomplete as well. So if you're new, and don't know exactly what to look for, I'd stil...

Re: recommended campaign sequence

I think, the order the campaigns are presented in the Campaign menu, is a reasonable one. Afaik the order changed a couple of releases ago, for this particular reason. Of course, you can always leave one out, or leave it for later, if you don't like the story or don't want to play this special facti...

Re: Female Avatars

I do not get "female character". Do you mean like hero in the mainline campaigns? If that's the case, I can think of Nym in Under the Burning Suns, Li'sar in Heir to the Throne, lady Jessenne in The Rise of Wesnoth, and I think Elyssa in Northern Rebirth. Of course, there are female characters in U...

Yes, it's like the suitcase in Pulp Fiction, where you also never learn what's inside.^^

Re: my Outpost hurts Hard

That's not an example of a walk-through giving fore-knowledge. The rationale for giving her the weapon has nothing to do with anything other than the information available at the point of decision. It recommends one course of action based upon the probable way the player treats the characters. No. ...

Re: my Outpost hurts Hard

What's the problem with the Sceptre going to Konrad? I did it on my first run-through and won. There's not exactly a problem with it. According to the story it's of course the natural choice, and you can safely win the campaign with Konrad wielding the sceptre. But for example the walkthrough in th...

Re: my Outpost hurts Hard

To me everyone has exactly one chance to prove a scenario is beatable without foreknowledge. In general, as a player I assume every scenario should be winnable without foreknowledge I don't think it's possible or even desirable to make this a strict rule, even if it would be possible to playtest th...

Re: The Succession in Heir to the Throne

What still needs to be figured out, though, is why Konrad and his brothers were seemingly ahead of Li'sar in the line of succession, in a system where women can inherit. Wasn't the succession system in England also strictly patrilinear? Until there came the point, when there wasn't any male heir le...

Re: Eine Geschichte zweier Brüder - Vertonung und Sprachkunst

gefällt mir. Vor allem Tairach hast du toll getroffen, Klasse. Danke Bei den Söldern ist die Stimmlage Tonus ähnlich, aber das ist in meinen Augen ok. Das Problem bei diesen Rollen ist ja, dass das durchaus immer dieselbe Einheit sein kann, oder eben auch nicht, weil das durch irgendeinen Algorithm...

Re: Eine Geschichte zweier Brüder - Vertonung und Sprachkunst

Ich hab auch mal ein paar Tracks aufgenommen. Da ich nicht unbedingt im Sprechen trainiert bin, und bspw. beim "sch" etwas komisch klinge, hab ich mich erstmal an ein paar Nebenrollen probiert, Greve Horban, Tairach und verschiedene Söldner/Reiter. Bei den Söldnern ist natürlich das Problem, dass ma...

Re: Increase multiplayer numbers?

If Wesnoth becomes popular enough for that to be a problem, then that could be an option. Otherwise, it's silly to have such a page when it would currently be almost entirely blank. The same could be said of adding a sub-forum. There is zero cost to adding such a page. I could do it in less than 5 ...
