Rise of Wesnoth campaign question

Post by peet »

Hi, folks.

This is my first post on this forum. I'd like to say how great a game Wesnoth is and I'm amazed I didn't discover it before.

Anyway, I'm now playing the "Rise of Wesnoth" campaign, and I just finished the "Harrowing Escape" scenario (the third one). I am now offered a choice to go either along the "River Road" to the Swamp of Esten, or through the Midlands.

So, which one do I choose? Does it make a difference?

swamp road is tough, swamppy terrain. the midlands is mostly a plain, where you fight orcs. I always go for the midlands- horsemen like plains. I like horsemen.

BTW what is that?
Oh no look out its a ray gun.
You should move to avoid the rays
the rays are coming out of the gun
if you are hit by the rays
you will be shot by the rays
the rays are fast so you should be fast to
can you win against the fast rays from the gun?

If you go to the Swamp of Esten, you get a prize.
Don't go to Glowing Fish for advice, he will say both yes and no.

When i went through this part, i chose the swamp of easten first, and i got creamed :( it has like 3 undead kingdoms attacking u at once, minimal mobility because it swamp and fog, so u cant see were the enemy is. even if u do get an white mage allie in one of the temples, mie alwais died in a few turns. it better to go through the plains, the orks are really weak and easy to kill, but there are also three of them :D :) i can make a bunny!!

Swamp of Esten gives a far better (IMHO) prize than the Midlands - horseman are much easier to get levelled than mages, so a loyal White Mage is more useful IMHO than a loyal Knight.

This thread was about a year old.
"There are two kinds of old men in the world. The kind who didn't go to war and who say that they should have lived fast died young and left a handsome corpse and the old men who did go to war and who say that there is no such thing as a handsome corpse."
