Civil War

Post by Mu »

My brother and I have developed a new campaign.

It is called Civil War and tells the story of Malbo, a soldier who fights to stop the rebellion of a sector of the army agaisnt their democratic government.

It is set in Cunnicula, a human country. It have nothing with the original Wesnoth background.

It is our first campaign, but we have be very careful with the details.

We hope you play it and you like it.

Please, post feedback.

The campaign is in the campaign server.

I playtested it a bit. Apart from balance issues (for instance, in scenario 2, you mostly hang around watching your enemies way north without any way on influencing the outcome) it certainly adds a new dimension to Wesnoth: it' so...political.
Much as i hate using peasents, the Che-type leader made me pull it through. Viva la revolucion!
Just a suggestion: but why don't you transform the peasents into something other than the thief/poacher/blah thing with custom units: revolutionary guard, commisar, .... I think peasents turning chaotic and "evil" is not what you want in this storyline. Add a few corrupt landowners and dark mages (as industrialists). An undead event would be nice, something like "the spirits of our slain comrades arose to defend the land" (an event where you get allies against overwhelming odds).
The artwork is ...umm speecial. Most will think it ugly, but malbo does have a certain..how do you say it? ..."bravado"
Good work, guys! I like it

I have fixed some things and we have version 0.1.1.

Here is the changelog:

0.1.1 (3/3/05)

- Scenario Balancing
- Reduced the gold of the enemy in An Army of Peasants (2nd scenario)
- Reduced XP requirement for peasants. Now they will become outlaws very quickly.
- Fixed some text.
- Fixed The Loyal Army (3rd scenario). The event related with the death of Niramto was missing.

We have given less gold to the enemy. Also, the reduced xp for peasants should give you units capable of face the enemy.

We are thinking about increasing the number of turns.

We don't agree. I think this campaign is about people who leave everything to fight for freedom. This peasants abandon their homes and becomes outlaws.

Also, it is planned the presence of popular militia, and we thought that the Outlaws of Wesnoth would fit in that role.

We don't agree with caothic==evil, less in this campaign.
Add a few corrupt landowners and dark mages (as industrialists).
We will think about it.

I really, really love this idea.

I wanted to have some undead, but I didn't know how to do it.

I don't know where, when or how assemble it, but I promise that will appear.
The artwork is ...umm speecial. Most will think it ugly, but malbo does have a certain..how do you say it? ..."bravado"
We know we are not great artists. But we think artwork is essential, specially for Malbo. It was very important because a Sergeant/Lieutenant/General didn't fit at first sight with the idea of a revolutionary.

We wanted the people to imagine a well hardened warrior, who have deteriorated his armor and weapons (and even his face and body), but not his resolution to fight until the end.

The art is miser, but we want the people to get the idea of the characters.

I am not so clear about what 'barvado' means, but I think I get the point.
Good work, guys! I like it
Thank you very much.

fun campaign so far

once the English is polished and with a little balancing, it could be one of the most enjoyable short ones. I like all the allusions to Spanish civil war and Franco, etc.

This campaign was last updated way back in March 2005. I highly doubt it's still being worked on. I don't think the author is still on the forums. It doesn't surprise me that such an old campaign has bugs when you try to load it.

I am just a gamer and i dont know how to program, yet.

There might be some one out there who can update this campaign and fix it.

I hope so it looks fun.

It's a WML bug: like an unclosed string or tag. I had lots of those.
