Item shop for leaders

Post by selion »

It would be nice if there were an item shop in some maps, maybe available only for team leader and placed in strategical points of the map. Inventary could either be limited to 1 item or it could be customizable. Items could add either flat protection versus specifical kinds of damage, add an attack move to your hero, or change his alignment. I think they should be not meant to make your leader way stronger, but to counter strategies of your enemy.
Just some examples:
spear of twilight: add an attack move 13 2 (piercing, first strike) and change your alignment to neutral
ring of fire protection: give 40% fire resistance (does not stack with your own resistance)
cloack of chamaleon: give 70% defence in forest
(Sorry for bad spelling)

UMC like "Legend of the Invincibles" and AFAIK "Bad Moon Rising" use an inventory system.

Kinda fair, it sounded weird to me that nobody thought such a simple implement :)
Anyway i'd like them included in some eras, in multiplayer games reaching with your leader a point of the map (and consequently giving up recruiting troops) to boost your defences against an overused units of your foe could add some tatctical issues.

It sounds to me like you've mostly played the core game and not yet tried the amazing user-made content that the Wesnoth community has produced. (or if you have, you've probably barely scratched the surface.) There's a wealth of incredible content that can be downloaded from within the game, and people have created some impressive stuff- including what you're describing and much more. Have a look at add-ons like Survival Xtreme, Colosseum, and any of Bob_the_Mighty's multiplayer scenarios; I think you'll like what you find. :)

IIRC Bob's RPG Era included an item shop on every map. Is that what you're thinking of?
