Back to the camels. I found another thread in factions development : something about an Arabian faction http://www.wesnoth.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=6591. It has camels, too. People like that idea.
Azhur wrote:There hasn't really been any use of the sand tile in Wesnoth, so I think that some sort of Arabian faction would fill that gap. Having read some tales of Arabia's 1001 nights was the last straw.

Some examples:

Heroes:

Prince -> Sheik -> Sultan (Agile warrior and and an average caster)

Units:

Prophet -> Seer -> Oracle (Strong caster)

Efreet -> Genie -> Djinn (Great resistances, fast, wields dual Scimitars)

Cameleer -> Camel Warrior (Quite agile, survives well in hills and mountains unlike other cavarly units)

Slave -> Eunuch -> Royal Servant (Healer & Poisoner)

Outcast -> Tresspasser -> Marauder (Warrior with a magical ability to grow arms upon himself: lvl 1 = two hands, lvl 2 = four hands lvl 3 = six hands)

Guardian -> Warder (Great defence against normal weapon types)

Arabian units are naturally all good on sandy grounds. What do you think? :roll:

Wesnoth had a distinct lack of variety when it comes to mounted unit. So far it is only horses, wolves, gryphons, or dead birds. I think camel riders would be amazing.
and in page 2 of that,...

it was a good idea. People just don't read my thread anymore...:( [sigh]
