Ooh, I tingle with anticipation. I should stop. I'll depress myself thinking about how this isn't actually possible. :(
No, learn archery from an elf. Learn swordplay from a Loyalist. :wink:

You are correct, sir. Those Elvish Marksmen and those Royal Guards are at the apex of their art.

You could try Second Life. That's almost like The Real World (TM) and it has the added benefit of being game-like.

1158. When you see an advert on a bus stop for the "World's first 12MP Camera!", and think, "Wow, that'd make a good scout."

1159. You may eventually have been playing wesnoth for too long if you tend to keep a degree of incertitude in most of your claims because you know RNG could have the last word.
Don't trust me, I'm just average player.

1160: you and your friends spend an hour debating whether or not the orcs have an inferiority complex.
1161: you spend the next hour talking about funny matches you played since you saw each other last.
1162: you spend the next half an hour figuring out why the different races have their unique resistances.

1163: You develop a tumor from suppressing the rage you feel against the RNG.

Seems I am not playing Wesnoth enough, if I have time to watch TV shows so often.
I can actually name the show from which this line is taken. :lol2:

Well, he is "Delfador the Great". I'm currently playing Delfador's Memoirs. It's fun to be a mage for once in a campaign. And his lightning stuff is very cool. But then again, if Delfador was old and senile, then I could see how being under him could be a problem.

1155. You convert all the OGGs to MP3 so that an MP3 player will take them so you can listen to the music all day.
1164. You actively search for an .OGG codec so you can leave them untainted, and did this a while back.
1165. You're last idea for [acronym="You've been playing Wesnoth too long when..."]YBPWTLW[/acronym] also gave you a faction idea.
1166. You invent a new acronym for this thread.

1167: You go to the doctor for a check-up, and he says "Oh dear. Have you been playing Wesnoth? Don't do that anymore."
