Slashdot did a piece on Wesnoth. It sounded interesting. They were right.

I was reading the Wikipedia article for "tactical role-playing games" and somebody helpfully included a link to the game there. 8)

I first found BfW a while ago (before 1.0) and couldn't get myself past the unfinished look. :oops: Since then real life has entered the picture and I've found myself with less time, especially gaming time, so I eventually switched from Windows to Linux. Still, I couldn't go that long without playing anything so I started looking for something fun and polished that I can take in short chunks of time. BfW is definitely there now.

Aah... Nothing but a nice, quiet patrol... Boooooooring!

I first got it on a Sam Linux CD that my Mom gave me several years ago. Unfortunately, the operating system could only be run off of the CD, so I lost all my saved games every time I shut the computer down. :cry:
More recently, I obtained Wesnoth 1.4 from the official BFW website (i.e. wesnoth.org) :)
Completed Add-Ons (BfW 1.4): Dark Century (era); From Darkness to Light (campaign); Rise of Toraila (era); Forty Years Exile (campaign); (BfW 1.6.5) Improved Era (era)

In Process (BfW 1.6.5): Crystal of Sight (campaign)
