Re: Heir to the Throne rant/idea suggestion

I apologise for that misinterpretation; I must've got the wrong idea, since I don't remember anything that specifically connected Asheviere's orcish mercenaries with Rakshas' rise to power. Yes, Konrad is claimed to have been inspiration for the rebellion at Dwarven Doors, but my gut feeling is that...

Re: Heir to the Throne rant/idea suggestion

Wow. Turin did an even better job of defending Ash than I did. It says explicitly in the story that Asheviere ordered her nephews murdered (not her nieces) after the death of Eldred, and the fact that baby Konrad apparently came before the King's own daughter in the line of succession may well expla...

Re: Death is a Circle

Taking the prefix as imitation sounds plausible, but this can of course only occur *after* EI and then probably only for those who have similar goals. (a mage who becomes a lich so he can study forever probably doesn't want to be associated with a cult hell-bent on the death of all living beings) O...

Re: Heir to the Throne rant/idea suggestion

I've played Liberty and I enjoyed it, but if I recall correctly the trigger for the rebellion is just that a flunkie of the Crown comes and orders Baldras to swear fealty to the new lawful Queen. For all I know those wolf riders you kill in the first mission could've just been out on a similar erran...

Re: Gwiti Ha'atel sprites - Update: Dread Lich finished!

I'd say Leganoth can remain as he is. The old Spectre didn't look that bad, and it'll help to distinguish the Dark Spirit from the Ghost line. As for a TCed Initiate, I've done enough TC recolours for a while - although technically, I did have to TC his hood for the Deathmaster. Question: I wasn't p...

Heir to the Throne rant/idea suggestion

I can't help but think that Heir to the Throne is told by a completely unreliable narrator... though mainly because I hate Konrad's dialogue and think Asheviere needs more character development. Running by the crimes that Asheviere is said to have committed... 1. Convinced Eldred to turn coat and mu...

Re: Idea for an intentionally silly campaign

Right, I'm currently having an epic WML failure with the first scenario and I can't see what I'm doing wrong. It's meant to be showing my edited Dread Lich as the campaign icon but isn't, and it claims "Unknown scenario '01_That_Valley_from_Northern_Rebirth'" when I try to start it. Attach...

Re: Death is a Circle

The Mal prefix gets used in DiD because the user used to be Mal in Keshar; it's a logical shortening. More to the point, we don't know when DiD takes place; for all I know Mal-Ravanal could have taken his prefix from Mal Keshar. Given that Volk's whole plan in DiD is to learn how to become a lich, m...

Re: Gwiti Ha'atel sprites - Update: Demilich finished

Given the lack of movement, I was surprised to find how hard it was to get mainline quality recolours done on the Ancient Lich. I dunno how to perfectly replicate transparency in GIMP.

Anyway, with this Gwiti is finished! (until Jetryl makes a new Ancient Lich)

Re: Art for Eve of Death

If you ask me, it looks more like Necrolyte L2 than Thrall L2. Besides, y'know, being a good sprite.

Re: Gwiti Ha'atel sprites - Update: Demilich finished

I know the current Ancient Lich is going to be replaced, and now I've gone to edit it I can see why. I never noticed while playing, but he hardly moves!... anyway, here are the base, defend, and melee frames for the Dread Lich; my only concern is the jewel, since I doubt you're going to have another...

Re: The Conquest of a Dark Queen

You're welcome. Also: Here's my attempt at a level 3 Alanya... I don't feel I 'steined the Fugitive's mace too well, but I can't identify the pixels that need changing. I seriously considered just leaving her with the Avenger's sword, but that would require you to give her a blade attack at level 3...

Re: The Conquest of a Dark Queen

As promised earlier, I have a base frame for Alanya at level 1. Will probably do ones for L2 and L3 assuming she's meant to have an impact attack and a bow. For those even more newb than me artists who need a full description: For some reason I decided that a bow wasn't a big enough difference to ma...

Re: Gwiti Ha'atel sprites

Actually, since I've posted so many times anyway, might as well double post to show that the Demilich is officially complete with melee frames.

Also included, an image of all the Demilich frames - though I'm in no hurry to make similar ones for Initiate or Deathmaster.
