Re: Tycho's Ten Thousand Trinkets Thread

That's a really nice ram/figurehead on the rhinoceros trireme. Can I ask though, why are the front oars longer than the rear oars?

Re: Trait Suggestions

I don't think anything gets added to the game purely so that modders can use it. After all, there's nothing stopping modders from including the "Proper Flying Mod" in all of their own content.

Re: Scenario 7: Showdown

(1) What difficulty levels have you played the scenario on? 1.14.7 on High Lord/Challenging. (2) How difficult did you find the scenario? (1-10) 1. The game literally gives you four Rangers and tells you to use them as stealth assassins, and that tactic works perfectly. Even if you don't do that, I...

Re: Scenario 6: A Detour through the Swamp

(1) What difficulty levels have you played the scenario on? 1.14.7 on High Lord/Challenging. (2) How difficult did you find the scenario? (1-10) 5. There really isn't any good terrain to fight on, but there's plenty of opportunities to make the undead have to move into 20% terrain in order to attac...

Re: Scenario 5: Linaera the Quick

(1) What difficulty levels have you played the scenario on? 1.14.7 on High Lord/Challenging. (2) How difficult did you find the scenario? (1-10) 5 or 6. The lack of good terrain looks intimidating, but if the player is aggressive, they can reach the hills and castles in the middle. If they're defen...

Re: Scenario 4: Valley of Trolls

(1) What difficulty levels have you played the scenario on? 1.14.7 on High Lord/Challenging. (2) How difficult did you find the scenario? (1-10) 5. This is definitely the most challenging scenario in the campaign so far, as you can't just hide in the woods the whole time anymore. The trolls are sma...

Re: Dunefolk Rework - Unit Descriptions

While not precluding the above descriptions, the Nagas were envisioned to be more along the lines of allies of the Dunefolk than mercenaries. From their race description: ...Mutual interests have fostered cordial relations with neighboring Naga tribes... Hm, that's interesting. I do enjoy the conce...

The sheer amount of Orcish Assassins that get sent at the player can be a bit overwhelming if you let them attack you from good terrain. If you hold th...

That would include units like the ghost, which like you say hover above the ground moreso than they fly.

Re: Dunefolk Rework - Unit Descriptions

Thanks! I had a go at Naga slasher and its two melee advancements, and it ended out coming out with much more of a pirate flavour than I thought it would, though I did make sure to include that they can be mercenaries too. Let me know what you think. I'll happily rewrite if the pirate focus doesn't ...

Re: Trait Suggestions

What other units might Flying be applied to, other than the bats? Units like gryphons and some of the drakes fly, but are on the ground in their sprites.

Re: Dunefolk Rework - Unit Descriptions

I think the worry is that if all of the descriptions for a unit line are written separately, they might not quite line up stylistically. If you look at, say, portraits, it's usually one artist that does a whole faction. You can kind of see it here if you compare the Soldier and Warmaster description...
