Mix and Conquer!

Post by Miran »

The scenario goes as follows:

Elves, Humans, Dwarves and Drakes are all living in their own areas. The Elves live in the forest, Dwarves live deep into the mountains and Humans somewhere in between. They are different and they occasionally fight eachother. The Elves and the Dwarves despise eachother, but both their civilizations are glorious in their own way. All the races of Wesnoth take great pride in themselves, and to die defending King and Country is the most honorable deed a man can achieve.

The Elves are a part of the forests, in a way Dwarves can never be. There is an aura of mystique surrounding the lands, because there's no tourism. A stranger is only admitted into their society if they have something important to do. And so these civilizations lives on, like we know.

But during all these years, a former mage has delved into the dark secrets of immortality and become a Lich lord. His goal is world dominance! But the various races in Wesnoth are strong and proud. He can never win by using brute force, so therefore he has become a master of mind-control. If he could only corrupt their minds, their beautiful civilizations would crumble under his will! And one cold winternight, deep into his cave, he gets a brilliant idea. He use dark magic to raise undead from graveyards, and takes them back to the cave, where he makes them look like Humans, Elves and Dwarves. Their quest is to infiltrate the civilizations and become high officials. From these positions they will start to preach a message of equality. "We must be friends and stop warring with eachother! After all, inside we are all equal!" Many will fall under this spell of righteousness, and soon an Elf who talks arrogantly about a Dwarf will be penalised for racism. "We are equal!" Soon the Lich lords plan will start to be realized: the races will mix! And after they have lost every sense of identity, the Lich lord can step forward and proclam himself the Emperor of the World! There will be too few proud Elves, Dwarves and Humans left to oppose his power over the masses! Now the Lich lord is ready to set his plan into action.

Our story begins in a time when Humans, Elves and Dwarves who awakes to this sneaking treath are being supressed by the law-system. Many are cast into prison for telling society about the cause of the corruption. The process has begun! Orcs who claim they escape from war are being admitted into the societies of men and elves! They walk around in gangs at night and rape Elvish girls, but the Lich-controlled media is silent!

Enough is enough! The last REAL Men, REAL Elves and REAL Dwarves gather out in the wild and join forces against this nonsense. How will they fight this malady?

That's an idea for a campaign. Let's discuss.

I wonder...

what assures us that you are going to proceed with this idea? Do you have any code, artwork, or anything for a short demo to show us all?

Apologies if I sound too censoring, but, when I published my campaign idea, the same afternoon I had its first version uploaded onto the campaign server.

I just loved the explanation of tourism as a cause of loosing identity. I don't know if considering this idea as some fantastic metafore on globalization or a dangerous way of supporting racial division.


Or maybe is just a joke.

Anyway, as Shadowmaster said, any thing to back up your words?
That's ridiculous, dragons have no windows...

Dubiously implied social messages aside, haven't we seen this kind of plot before? You know, the one where the evil undead power mad lord of dOOOOm rises to bring dOOOOm to all the lands, and is repulsed by an alliance of the US, UK, and Russia... err, I mean dwarves, elves and humans. Nevermind the snarky but cute social commentary, I give the plot a thumbs down. :?

I'm willing to bet that you can do much much better than that.
