only the 1.6 version needs the water serpent config file and art.
the water serpent is a default monster in 1.7 branch

Okay, giving the undecided student a try:

"Only though adversity does a man grow." The Brungar have taken this saying to heart, and rarely is it more true than for those who try to master the fickle runes to command the waves. When faced with the terrors of war and reality of combat, the grain is separated from the chaff, and those who emerge from their first trial succesful can join the ranks of the apprentices under the tutelage of a revered master of herb lore or water magic.

The Undecided Student has humble forces at his command, but strives to maximize their impact with proverbial dwarven tenacity. While he may be rather frail, he will no let anyone stop him from joining the fray, for that is the furnace where dwarves are made; it will not take long for him to prove his worth.

:shock: Well that certainly is impressive!

The only thing I can say to that is when talking about the magic over the waves, could you point out that it's runic magic? I know, I know, I'm very critical over this stuff regarding magic but still, I don't think it'd be that hard..

Also, maybe cut the "for that is the furnace where men are made; it will not take long for him to prove his worth." just because it's unneeded or if we decide to keep it change the "men" to "dwarf".

Looks excellent though.

wave master:
council member:
council elder:

the undecided student description makes reffrence to becoming a mage but not an apothecary. I also think it's overdoing it a bit.

i have no problems with pentarctagons description though.

it does mention herblore once, actually, but it does seem to reference magic more than herblore. also, a replacement word for 'apprentice' in the description would be good since the mage advancement is an has apprentice as part of it's name.

also, the "humble forces at his command" part...he uses his fists and a rock. the rest of it that mirion hasn't pointed out is good, but that one phrase in the second section really seems out of place.

Pent, the council members are not only leaders on the battlefield but leaders of the entire civilization. You should point that out. And don't say "you" like you did in the HCE description. And maybe switch "level" for "position" so as not to get it confused with leveling units.

Also, some of them are a little short, but other then that and some spelling errors.

Pent and Xandria, try to mention the weapons they use.

Oh. I thought he'd have some weak magic already.

Thus:

"Only though adversity does a man grow." The Brungar have taken this saying to heart, and rarely is it more true than for those who try to master the fickle runes to command the waves. When faced with the terrors of war and reality of combat, the grain is separated from the chaff, and those who emerge from their first trial succesful can join the ranks of the scholars under the tutelage of a revered master of herb lore or water magic.

The Undecided Student has no magic at his command, but strives with proverbial dwarven tenacity, beating at the dwarves' enemies with fists and rocks if it need be. While he may be rather frail, he will no let anyone stop him from joining the fray, for that is the furnace where dwarves are made; it will not take long for him to prove his worth.
