Re: The Khalifate Resource and Balance Thread

Balance Discussion I will flesh out this section some other time. However here are some areas to consider: 1. Drake vs Khalifate match up being greatly in favor of Khalifate 2. Khalifate vs Northerners match up being heavily in favor of Northerers mostly due to trolls. 3. Loyalist vs Khalifate matc...

Re: The Khalifate Resource and Balance Thread

Brief Khalifate Development History The following is a broadstrokes history of development. I compile these mostly from reading forum threads, having only recently been active in Khalifate development. The purpose of this history is to facilitate the use of the resources in the Index of Links, sinc...

Re: How to Play: Khalifate

We will put aside the problems of the obvious politically charged concept of suicide bombers employed by a desert dwelling, turban wearing nation (which IMO is enough to just not do it for the problems it will cause.. we had enough drama with the name as it is!); nor the implication that it is them...

Re: Coming up with new units!

I'm not an artist.. but cool looking units! XD
If I may, to resolve the form of the Golem Caretaker.. perhaps make it so it is sitting on the Golem's shoulder instead of sort of hanging on for dear life.

Re: [engine] A mathematical framework for game balancing

It seems to be rather than calculating causality, it will instead gather statistical data. The problems of the first assumption has been addresed, I will also raise a problem about the other assumption (map layout not unduly affecting the statistics). This is because map layout has a very big effect...

Re: Return from the Abyss [SP campaign for 1.12]

Thank for making this campaign! I really like the idea of Khalifate as an "unhomed" group of people. If you are familar with Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever series of books (one of the best fantasy series) there is a similar race though they are Giants instead. I haven't finished this yet a...

Further naptha is supposed to parallel Greek Fire, and is thus more of an incendiary weapon and ...

Re: How to Play: Khalifate

Re: Undead vs Khalif match up Wow, I went through my replays and yes, there isn't much example of mass ghoul (the type of strat I endorsed). Indeed instead, there was a majority of the adept+skel rush strat which I was researching in the latter days of my research. I can't believe I didn't put that...
