So I PMed SkyOne (author or Fate of a Princess etc.) and revansurik (author of A Song of Fire etc.) at the end of July asking if they planned to port their addons to 1.14 but neither has been online since then, so I think anyone can take over maintaining if they want to. As for how to take over, you can just go ahead and make changes and then upload to the 1.14 server.

I would love to see Fate of a Princess ported to 1.14, so good luck! :D

I think a lot of us feel that we only know part of the answer. Another part of it is to find the old forum thread and ask

Is this still being maintained?
That's had no answer, and SkyOne was last active in 2016, so it looks ready for take-over. Now just write "Wesnoth" in your diary every day for the next two months, it'll probably take over your life for a bit. :D

I think I'd be interested in maintaining Fate of a Princess, even though the process seems a little vague...

I assume I am supposed to create a new _server.pbl file? Yeah, I think that is about it. Yep. If no one objects, then I'd like to get started on porting it.

Odd that revansurik last said the campaigns are ready to be ported and the only reason they're not is because War of Legends needs to be ported first.

He started the post you are refering to with saying that the last months have been rough for him and that he plans to be active again from now on. Since he last came online in June I'm afraid that life caught up with him once more. :/
So, while he could theoretically port it once WoL is ported, it's unlikely to happen any time soon...

In this post I'd like to ask about the forum posts of abandoned campaigns. I am not sure if this was mentioned earlier in the topic.

When taking over an abandoned campaign, what do you do about the forum thread? Do you create a new one?

And again, I realise nobody has confirmed my taking over of Fate of a Princess. If someone could confirm that to me then that would be great. I have no intention of stealing the work from someone else if they have already claimed it. Thanks.

What for? I think there should be just one thread per campaign, unless the campaign had undergone a major rewrite or something. Just subscribe to the existing thread.

There's no central registry of who's taking over what campaign. If you post here, and on the campaign's thread, and PM the maintainers, and no one says "Stop", then you can just go ahead. It probably goes without saying but you shouldn't remove the previous author's name from the byline.

Ah. Okay. Thanks for the clarification. I'll take the steps you mentioned and wait a day for a response before starting to port and maintain it.

I'd wait a little longer. People might be on vacation, or only check their wesnoth stuff on weekends etc.

Yeah, I've seen you've posted in the FoaP thread and just a day might not be that long in a site such as this, especially on weekdays. Not everything moves at reddit-speed. :)

Is there a full storyline that needs to be coded and have associated artwork developed, or is the story as yet unwritten?

Thanks!
Hello Gitanomad_X, there has no release to the add-on server since 2 years but I am secretly still working on it.
The story and the scenario layout is more or less done so far.
On the TODO list are still some maps for the later scenarios.

Regards,

Hi Fabi, I see that you're still active on Wesnoth, at least as of June of this year. I've tried not to bug you about this for five years, but perhaps I can no longer contain my enthusiasm :D I really am curious, because it seemed as if you had a strong plot line with relevant social commentary embedded into the campaign. Thanks!
