[campaign] Unlikely Companions advertising for collaborators

Post by Can-ned_Food » June 7th, 2018, 10:57 pm

This began with me thinking that all those MP campaigns which feature a small group of heroes on a quest should have some accomodation for the actual number of humans participating.

With the campaign Unlikely Companions, there are six heroes, but the [side] on which they belong varies with the actual number of players. One player can control all six on the same side, or six players can each control one on a different side.
Of course, if you were doing it hotseat, then you could decide to do it however you want.

This technical premise is what preceeded my need to have a story to go with the heroes.

Code: Select all

	description =	_"
	  The lands of six peoples           
	   gasped for breath, so             
	    inundated in bloods              
	     which they pulled               
	      from themselves:               
	        red from the Huums,          
	         who bore standards high;    
	        black from the Gorks,        
	         for hungers despoiling;     
	        blue from the Siðz,          
	         dwellers in clay and mire;  
	        white from the Ɂucɂuc,       
	         taking life so to live;     
	        sepia from the Elwanes,      
	         sapped like cousins,        
	          the trees;                 
	        pallor green from the Nŋmḿ,  
	         dimly glowing in moonlight. 
	  One of all those together          
	   are six.                          
	   Those six shall confront          
	    at the nexus                     
	     of fate.                        
	description_alignment =	right
It occurs sometime in the pre–Wesnoth history and with a variant cosmogenesis. I didn't want to surround it too much with the established stuff.
All the races are renamed somewhat and their descriptions reprised to mesh with the different cosmogene. The geography is mostly unchanged, excepting that there are now three small continents in place of the one “Old Continent”.

It uses a novel inventory system that does not require trawling through [message] pages.

I'm opening for collaboration with those who want to help making:
  • special hero units with their new sprites and audio,
  • scenarios,
  • additional voice work for narrating the scenarios, and
  • miscellaneous tweaks to the cosmology.
Additional information will be provided through PM discussions for those interested.
