Re: Ideas for a UI facelift

Based on the assumption that this project is still under development I´d like (rather than a bug report) to address a matter that GunChleoc has made aware twice in this thread: space for translated strings that are "a wee bit longer" than the English words. IMO, there's a relatively large number of ...

Re: Content Gaps in Mainline (Writing)

Off topic @ iceiceice: I guess "... are violent even among themselves creatures, ..." is a typo Why? Because orcs are assumed to be pack-oriented and loyal? "Pack orientation" refers IMO only to the way of hunting down a prey or an enemy and I recall this remark from mattsc regarding a similar issue...

Re: Content Gaps in Mainline (Writing)

Huh? I don't even get this "species" thing... ORCS -- the most civilized species in Wesnoth? Wolves and orcs are kindred spirits? So, orcs are fiercely loyal? No one would ally with the orcs without specific need, intelligent wolves are no exception, adaptable as they may be. And I really can't imag...

Re: Possibility of canonical in-game faiths

@James_The_Invisible
Sure, no problem with them being dead and hero worship. That's how it works.
Just wondered about good old Kalenz... I think he's still tramping around,
long after the fall of Wesnoth.

Re: Why are all mainline campaign leaders male?

iceiceice, thanks for interpreting my ulterior motive CORRECTLY. Sorry for any confusion, in case of doubt, it is preferable to not weigh my words and take me with a pinch of salt. To make it absolutely clear once and for all: I am in favor of female leads in BfW or elsewhere, I welcome and cherish ...

Re: Why are all mainline campaign leaders male?

johndh, I just read your friend's post about female agency. It IS a good read and Mr. Tisdel will find good reasoning in this thread, although he got the answer to his wonderment himself: Fiction is about guys for guys – from guys. That's it. In fiction we don't want reality (unless it is about male...

Re: Roar of the Woses

@ Zerbugug: The last scenario is really hard... Uhm... only the last one? I really have to say: The whole campaign is an extraordinary challenge for me. I thought I had learned something about strategy and intend to post some useful evaluation on the feedback thread, but meanwhile I'm placing hope o...

Re: Content Gaps in Mainline (Writing)

Probably not the right place/tropic to ask but since descriptions for Gryphons and Wolves were mentioned: I would like to question the idea of assigning wolf-riding goblins to "predators", and gryphon-riding dwarves to "legendary eagle/lion creatures" in the Help/unit descriptions. I mean, other rid...

Re: Discovery of Wesnoth

" A good campaign to start with is the Heir to The Throne. It is not too difficult on easy, but gets challenging later on. " @kiss: Does the wiki need an update about this? I would say YES. IMO, HttT is everything but "Novice level"! At the time, the tutorial was not enough to prepare me even for th...

Re: An Anthem for the Ages

If it wasn´t Jetrel´s comment on new poacher art yesterday it must have been GunChleoc´s link to Sámi music or the voice of Mari Boine Persen that rose the number of " most users ever online " from what? one hundred sixty ? to this astonishing 1,234 !!! :shock: Thank you very much, this great music ...

Re: Why are all mainline campaign leaders male?

For given reason: you grossly misrepresented my statements. I am very much in favor of the idea of having a new campaign with a female protagonist. I just disagree with you that doing a gender-swapped ripoff of an existing campaign would be the best way to go about it Sapient, I apologize: As you pu...

Re: Why are all mainline campaign leaders male?

I don´t think the TO was referring to humans only, and there´s no need to remain in the realms of reality if it is about the pioneering innovation of a female orc or troll leader: Their women just have to be hiding somewhere since they are definitely no supernatural manifestations. As long as writer...
