Re: What do you do that is more for roleplay than strategy?

I'm overprotective of my units (excluding undead). They have names, individual traits, etc. I want to make sure they all get to go home at the end. When I played UtBS, it was one of the elves I rescued from the rubble of the meteor shower who struck the killing blow. I had kept him alive through the...

Re: What else am I missing?

The two fantasy-themed webcomics I regularly read are http://www.goblinscomic.org/ and http://guildedage.net/ Much like OoTS, Goblins takes place within a D&D game and there are a lot of gags based on this, so if you're not into D&D then some of the jokes might go over your head, but regardless it i...

Re: Science as ¨magic¨.

Hurray for transhumanism! We've already drastically lengthened our average life span, though this seems to be mostly because we've beaten many causes of childhood death, rather than making old people live longer. We've invented ways for the formerly-deaf to hear, the formerly-blind to see, and amput...

Re: Questions about D&D.

Are there other D&D-based games? Besides Baldur's Gate, which I don't like too much. Heresy! :evil: But really, there are a bunch. Similar to BG are BG 2 (obviously), Icewind Dale , and Planescape: Torment (often considered one of the best RPGs of all time). There was also an action-oriented spin-o...

Re: Is there secret organizations in Wesnoth?

What i really needed is that 1) There is a powerful independent order. 2) That order can recruit neophytes 3) That neophytes and more experienced members of order doing 'special operation' missions for order. The guild of thieves (whether this is many different guilds or one guild with many chapter...

Re: Science as ¨magic¨.

How do you define a god? What criteria would have to be fulfilled? Some common traits I can think of from divine figures in various mythologies: immortality or infinite longevity supernatural powers or control over some aspect of nature responsibility for natural processes (e.g. making the sun rise)...

Re: Wesnoth archers need an upgrade

I am just guessing, but I would say slings have similar effectiveness as bows in skirmishs, but bows allow superior army configuration in "large" battles. - A bowman can carry more ammo to battle than a slinger. An arrow doesn't have a big ball of lead, but it's long and takes up room, and gets in ...

Re: Wesnoth archers need an upgrade

I imagine bows replaced slings for their armor-piercing qualities if anything else. Even the Spanish conquerors of South America remarked on the power of slung stones against their steel arms and armor. They're even better when using lead bullets. I don't think armor penetration necessarily favors ...

Re: Wesnoth archers need an upgrade

After watching some videos about the advantages of slings (cheap, easy to make, you can carry a backup, ammo is everywhere, works in the rain, harder to dodge, etc.), I had wondered for a long time why bows eventually replaced them in most warfare. Maybe this video shows why.
