I have no knowledge of the Wesnothian Geography.
Darkness called… But I was on the phone, so I missed him. I tried to *69 Darkness, but his machine picked up. I yelled "PICK UP THE PHONE, DARKNESS!", but he ignored me. Darkness must have been screening his calls.

look at the main maps in the official/some unofficial campaigns and make it up :)
Space is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind- bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the drug store, but that's just peanuts to space.

Wow, I added that yesterday and allready people are complaining about how long its been since it was updated.

I'm going to fill it out when I'm done with the latest changes to the timeline. Of course anyone else who wants to help is welcome. Do we have the Campaign maps online anywhere or will we need to upload them?

You know it allways surpises me how my tinest actions here on the boards seem to have huge effects. 3-4 sentances that I paraprased from the intoduction to one of the chalange scenarios and put in timeline ended up inspiring shade to make TROW.

I think that we both saw it and figured that it was there and we never noticed it:D:D

i'm fine with changing names in campaigns to be more logical.
I didn't mean I wanted you to cange names, I just wanted you to give me the list of kings leading up to the campaign, you can choose what ever you want (within reason, no King Turin :) ). As for Daycn, how old is he supposed to be anyways? Being an adult under one king and still breathing 3 kings latter would probebly make him older than a 100 hundered years (unless there was some seriuos regicide going on.... :shock: Campaign idea!).
dacyn is suppose to be very old... say 80-90 (which WAS old back in medieval times, which is what i'm basing my info on). I think saying he was 30 at the time of one king, who died ten years later, then another king reigned for twenty-five years (so he's 55), then another for thirty (so he's 85), then this king takes the throne.
For I am Turin Turambar - Master of Doom, by doom mastered. On permanent Wesbreak. Will not respond to private messages. Sorry!

30+10=40
40+25=65
65+30=95

Dude. That's old now. Besides, wesnoth != medieval times (couldn't resist!!!!)!!

Anyway, what did you have in mind for the Wesnoth geography?
