Re: Wings of Valor 2.0.3 (Drake Campaign for BfW 1.14)

Spoiler'ed the entire post since pretty everything I'm responding to is also in spoiler tags. Partly the reaction of the saurians is due to their desperate situation. These two saurians individuals, lead by Arinexis primarily, have been fighting a guerilla war against both Wesnoth and Wesmere, to av...

Re: Expanding The Great Continent - [Dunefolk Habitat]

While true, I guess what I'm really asking is whether having interactions with so many different races is actually necessary. Giving time and detail to lesser used races is good, but do there really need to be Southern Orcs? There don't have to be elves because there's a forest, or dwarves because ...

Re: Expanding The Great Continent - [Dunefolk Habitat]

Thats a give/take relationship you add in orcs you take away other opportunities for other ideas/races. saurians, drakes and other minor races that are lacking. from in this work it sounds like the dunefolk, saurians, drakes, naga are going to be the main focus where Elves, dwarves, trolls, merfolk...

Re: Dunefolk Lore - Consolidation

Just to be clear, I'd personally prefer it starts somewhat earlier, but I think what I described in my previous post is about the latest place in the timeline that I'd be okay with.

Re: Dunefolk Lore - Consolidation

Well this was my attempt justifying a timeline where the golden age of the dunefolk take place after Garard the First and the Second, as suggested by yumi. At the end of the "Age of Fear" beginning of "Silver Age" of Wesnoth seems a good start to place dunefolks "Golden Age". While it was a suggest...

Re: Expanding The Great Continent - [Dunefolk Habitat]

So it's more like: the Drakes give the Orc tribe a chance to prove themselves with a champions' duel, and if the Orc loses, his tribe should better prepare to fight! Else, Drakes retreat and leave that tribe alone for the time being, and go raid somewhere else. It's not like a "you are our Orc slav...

Re: Expanding The Great Continent - [Dunefolk Habitat]

At the massive size of the island it wouldn't make sense for to be one massive volcano. Just noting that volcanoes don't necessarily occur in isolation. With the size of Palmiya, it could easily be two or three or four volcanoes… or it could've formed from a hotspot like Hawaii, in which case there...

Re: Dunefolk Lore - Consolidation

This is where they started to build their first ever cities (Th'arwya, Kesh, Serrul ...) They had never built a city before their cataclysmic war? That seems a touch odd… why do they suddenly start building cities after the war, then? Especially the lack of wood after the war ended. What exactly do...

Re: Dunefolk Lore - Consolidation

However this may change when they realize the true power of the Ruby and the level of risk involved in Wesnoth's plan of raising a whole new sun. Feeling that this would endanger them as well, they'd feel compelled to intervene, however late. Yes, in fact it would not surprise me if the dunefolk, l...

Re: Expanding The Great Continent - [Dunefolk Habitat]

Well when you consider that exterminated would include women and children, typically when extermination happens those on the receiving end will hold that grudge Yes, of course. But how long will they hold that grudge? It's not impossible for it to be passed down from generation to generation, but i...

Re: Expanding The Great Continent - [Dunefolk Habitat]

I was referring to this version of politics, though the current (afaik) form of government goes even more in that direction. I felt such high levels of arbitration and control to be somewhat artificial, and citicized the lack of open conflict (warfare) which it would imply. Huh? Neither version has...

Re: Expanding The Great Continent - [Dunefolk Habitat]

* Millenia ago, elves and woses inhabit the island, building great cities and entertaining an elaborate culture. Kinda weird for elves to be living in the mountains, but I guess if they're low mountains it can work. Doesn't seem like there's room for a lot of "great cities" on the island though. * ...

Re: Expanding The Great Continent - [Dunefolk Habitat]

Also I updated the map by adding undead where they should have been What do you mean by "where they should have been"? adding saurians to Palmiya as that seems to make sense. Strongly disagree. Why exactly does that make sense? I don't think it makes sense to put saurians in mountains, especially v...

Re: Dunefolk Lore - Consolidation

The cataclysmic dispute that soured the dunefolk on magic has probably faded into myth. There are no doubt a plethora of tall tales and conflicting stories of what exactly happened, and there may be some fragmentary historical records, but no-one knows the exact details.

Re: [mainline] Melee "marksman"

This seems like a pretty reasonable suggestion. The two words could also be merged together as "truestrike". In my opinion it works equally for melee and ranged, but if people are that attached to marksman I suppose it could also be used for melee only.
