It's not a suggestion for where to explore on the map to find the sceptre, it's a plot point - instructions telling the character Konrad to travel east in between this scenario and the next one (in which you will have to actually find the sceptre). You can safely ignore it. Ahhhhhhhh..... all becom...

The Lost General - I'm puzzled....

Hi all... I'm doing the "Lost General" level in "HTTT" but one thing puzzles me. When Lionel dies, he says that the Sceptre of Fire is *east* of his keep. But the map doesn't go there! I've gone back to Konrad's original keep (the one that he starts on) and there seems to be *no way east* from there...

Re: Hi again all ...

I guess he meant RIPLIB, which means "Reduction In Power when Leveling Is Bad". This concept means that, for a given unit of a given level, if there is one or more possible advancements, then at least one of them must make the unit at least as effective as it was in any given situation. Illustratio...

Hi again all ...

Hi again all - Good to see everyone's comments on shamans. I think shaman-type units may be pretty useful in scenarios like "The Lost General" where you have nasty trolls coming at you. Being able to slow them (therefore halving their hit-points for a turn) will be great! I may even look at trolls a...

I've just been learning the value of shamans :)

Hi all - I've played Wesnoth for about two years or so, but have (in that time) almost never used shamans, being hesitant about how powerful they can be. So tonight, I bit the bullet and decided "Right, this time I'm recruiting a few shamans and I'll see how it goes". It went very well! It'll take a...

Great! Thanks very much, server!

Syntax for changing the display resolution

Hi all - I've got the same problme as another user had (that the game is displaying as 1024x768, rather than my actual screen size which is 800x600). I want to edit the preferences file manually, so I just need the correct syntax to put in there. ( I tried displaysize="800x600" but that didn't work ...

RE : The Dwarven Doors

Hi again - Thanks very much, Bruno, Elvish Pillager, Quentin! I'll try what you suggest and see how I go. One of the tips was " this is pretty much a "run-for-it" scenario". I totally agree! There just seems to be waaaaay too much opposition to even think of taking it on. It seems to be a case of "g...

How to beat "The Dwarven Doors"?

Hi all - I've come up against "the mother of all levels" ... :-) I just **can not** beat this level. I usually have around 320-350 gold at the start of it, and that seems nowhere near enough. There are just **waaaaaaayy** too many tough units in this level. Even with elvish avengers and gryphon-ride...

Re: Siege of Elensefar

(1) What difficulty levels have you played the scenario on? Easy only. (2) How difficult did you find the scenario? (1-10) 9. Found it very difficult, especially if you haven't managed to get experienced units in previous scenarios. The skeletons seem to be particularly difficult to kill. (3) How cl...

Heh - It's _becoming_ a right, as it were - see this URL for the latest ... ;-) http://klik.atekon.de/ Well , maybe not a "right" as such. An "expectation" maybe...
