Re: Preferred Fate of the Dunefolk (formerly Khalifate)?

Default and Default Classic actually sound pretty cool, and a nice compromise.

Wishing for a new mainline drake campaign candidate

I recently looked over Wings of Victory with an eye to help finish it. I don’t think it should be finished. I think it is unfinished for a reason. I’m a text adventure critic, and I’ve reviewed over 1500 text adventures, and many of them suffer from the same problem as Wings of Victory: cool ideas t...

Re: Preferred Fate of the Dunefolk (formerly Khalifate)?

Has the faction not been tested competitively already at the same level it would be if we left it? I mean, if people aren’t playing it now, they won’t start playing it more. Adding it in makes more playing happen and more balance. As for campaigns, the drake campaign has been stalled for a decade or...

Re: The 'weakest' level 3 units in the game.

Haha, right? I like how the game balances all of the different higher level units. You're right, he does do 48 damage, but only with assistance... Although Highwayman (level 3 thugs) seem to be pretty terrible. Low health, bad defense and resistances, average movement, no ranged. They always die whe...

The 'weakest' level 3 units in the game.

I love looking into statistics about this game. I was investigating the level 3 units with the weakest attacks, and I discovered that everyone does at least 24 damage at level 3. The ones that do exactly 24 are: -Hurricane Drake -Elvish Shyde -Merman Entangler -Assassin Interestingly, these units ar...

This, and the sylph, and the new TRoW lich sprites are just awesome. So great to see good work coming in!

Re: Dunefolk(previously Khalifate) race description

This conversation has been going on forever, and probably won't stop unless we decide on something. I actually really like skeptical_troll's writeup, and it would give a lot of flexibility to campaigns. I would change 'bustling cities have raised' to 'bustling cities have been raised' or 'bustling c...

Re: Dunefolk(previously Khalifate) race description

The plains weren’t unoccupied before the Wesnothians come. There were a great deal of Saurians there, as Rise of Wesnoth attests, with a dragon ally the elves hadn’t been able to defeat and Nagas they sold metal to. Even Legend of Wesmere says there was a Saurian Empire at that time. Edit: To be hon...

Re: Saurian race description

Yeah, the eggs are in LoW and the matriarchal society is in Secrets of the Ancients. The part about men studying magic isn't canon; the word 'male' could be stricken from the description, just saying the many saurians train for combat and magic.

The astrology is also from Secrets of the Ancients.

Re: Saurian race description

Here's my proposal, which relies entirely on canon (except for the words 'always' at the end of paragraph 2 and 'dominated' and 'most' in paragraph 3): Saurians Saurians are an ancient race of lizard-like creatures inhabiting the swamps and marshes of the Great Continent. They are smaller than other...

Re: Saurian race description

I'd help with it, but just like with the Dunefolk, there doesn't seem to be a well-defined process for this. Everyone can just come up with their own (good) ideas, and there's not really anyone to say "Okay, great, this is the one we'll do." Maybe there should be a race-description dictator? It was ...
