Legend of Far North:SP Campaign Feedback and Reviews

Postby chak_abhi » August 18th, 2011, 4:22 pm

A long awaited campaign about the legendary orc Black Eye Karun is finally out.This campaign depicts his rise to power,a long term war with the humans,the controversial treaty and his brutal assassination. 18 scenarios have been planned,(out of which 16 are playable) and 16 have been completed.All the scenarios are tested on BfW 1.9.5 and are balanced.

Please provide the feedback by answering the following questions:
1.What version of Wesnoth have you used to play this campaign?
2.On what difficulties have you played this campaign?
3.How do you rate the difficulty of this campaign in general?(1-10)
4.Which portions of the campaign do you find to be too easy or too hard that may need to be rebalanced?
5.How do you find the storyline and the conversation of the campaign?
6.What changes do you think may be made to make the campaign more interesting?
7.If you know about Wesnoth Markup Language(WML),please comment on the WML of the various scenarios,stating how they may be improved.

The scenarios have mostly been kept on the easy side.Constructive criticisms are most welcome.

I do not stay online for long periods,so replies to your posts may not come immediately.Please keep patience in this regard,I will definitely address all your issues.

Okay, I downloaded the campaign and played it. Finally a campaign on Karun! I hope its awesome.
Off-Topic
The questions you gave here, really belong to the Add-on Feedback Forum


Issues and Suggestions
1. You need to work on your spacing of sentences of the story and dialogues.
2. Instead of your own portraits, it would be better to use mainline portraits. Karun could use the sovereign portrait.
3. The map of scenario Elves and Saurians needs to be more orc friendly.
4. In the scenario The Rebel Leader, give the allied leader more gold. About 250-300
5. In scenario Dark Journey make the map more orc friendly, and make Blemaker recruit less lvl2 (He spammed me with Rocklobbers!)

Thanks for playing,as well as for commenting here (I was quite surprised that no one has put up a comment for so many days!)

This will be done later.
2. Instead of your own portraits, it would be better to use mainline portraits. Karun could use the sovereign portrait.


The portrait used for Karun belongs to one of the greatest leaders of medieval India--Shivaji.He too united many warring tribes and led them to victory against the oppressive Mughal emperor Aurangzeb.So I thought that his portrait would be the most appropriate for Karun. The portrait of Blemaker is that of a typical mountain troll!
3. The map of scenario Elves and Saurians needs to be more orc friendly.


Is the scenario hard?You should allow the elves and saurians to fight with each other and then do the mop up (of course you have to kill the saurian leader yourself!).
4. In the scenario The Rebel Leader, give the allied leader more gold. About 250-300


This scenario is the first test of your strength in this campaign.You don't need to keep the allied leader alive,you only need to shift the shamans for the time being and then reinforce the city with your forces.There is a fair chance of levelling your troops.The shamans are not like the one in SotBE, they are L3s,have a strong magical attack and can heal also.You should use them in combat to rejuvenate your troops.
5. In scenario Dark Journey make the map more orc friendly, and make Blemaker recruit less lvl2 (He spammed me with Rocklobbers!)

This is a bit tricky scenario.You should use some Orcish Grunts as cannon fodder.You should also use the underground lake as a defensive position.Many trolls will wade through the water and try to attack you.You should attack them at first with a unit with a strong ranged attack (crossbowmen or the shaman) and do the mop up with orcish grunts.Some of the grunts can actually level up.The map may be changed at places later if more people agree with you.

I can't load using 1.9.8vs, because I've got a missing map error.
