[interface] Allow unit renaming from recall list

Via button (ala "dismiss unit") or preferably via traditional slow double-click.

Re: HttT Text & Dialogue

I don't see how a single prisoner could be that much trouble. Well, perhaps not. It's more of the cumulative effect of having to guard such a high-profile prisoner in such forbidding country, all while traveling with maximum stealth and speed. I'll take a second look. As for the arrogance that Pewk...

Re: Post your favorite boardgame!

Ugh. The worst part of that game. The stupidity of the majority drags you down so many times! In order to keep alive you not only have to be smart enough to figure out who the killers are, but enough of a leader/persuader to get other people to follow you. Anybody else ever been sitting through cor...

...except for the remark about just leaving her being murder which is a bit strange considering that the map is filled with villages and she wouldn't be completely alone anyway. Heh. Sometimes I read something I wrote like a day before and I'm just flabbergasted that it made it onto the page. See v...

Re: HttT Text & Dialogue

In the second story part line, "an sensation" should be "a sensation". Ayup, fixed in v0.31 . I don't understand why Li'sar refers to Konrad as "boy". He's twenty-something years old and so is she, so I don't think it'd be very practical for her to call a man who's the...

Re: HttT Text & Dialogue

[lots] Wow, nice. Any thoughts on my version? This is just the first go— and I think you put much more thought into resolving the, um, 'ludicrousity' that we both observed. Sorry, lots going on with work. It occurs to me that maybe we should rename the Siege of Elensefar? If the problem is that pla...

...exiles. This is intended to be a reflection of Konrad's amused surprise, not a negative reflection on the exiles' character. "First exiles, now thieves" is in the sense of "Even though I myself am an outlaw, I'm still surprised that my army is made up of exiles and thieves rather ...

Re: Dates for Ashiviere's reign

The current timeline has Ashiviere becoming queen in 501 and dying in 518. Since the new version will make Konrad about six years older than he currently is, the reign of Ashiviere must be extended by this amount. What will be the new dates for her reign? Um. *fears a trap* 501-524? *retreats*

Re: What games are you playing right now?

Agricola . Agricola rocks . That publisher owes me: my wife and I have been personally responsible for the sales of at least 6 copies of that game to various friends and relatives. If you/your significant other are into complex strategy but not destruction/wargames, look no further. And if they are...

Heh. Ow.

Ok, reclassified thread to UMC. Once I'm done with the HttT text, I might have some fun with some of these traits in a campaign of my own design.

Re: HttT Text & Dialogue

The biggest change I'd still make is to split the bit about Delfador secreting away Konrad into its own; it's the most important part of the backstory so I think it requires special mention.. Done. v0.8 . ...misleading SoE dialogue Are you talking about my rewritten dialogue, or the original? EDIT:...

Re: HttT Text & Dialogue

I'll rework the Aethenwood references to something that makes more political sense. Eldred is a tougher nut, because his behavior and that of the king's army really does need to be addressed. The changes I made, I made to give some skeleton explanation for a plot that left me just simply baffled . I...

Re: [mainline] On Level, Optionally Optimize Traits

First, I like option #2 better, which eliminates excessive leveling stackups. My quick, focused anything levels and gains more MP, but loses more HP? Option 1: Yes. The unit would lose an additional 5% at each level; so a level 3 unit would have +3 MP and -15% HP. the effect is essentially multiplie...
