Re: Expanding The Great Continent - [Dunefolk Habitat]

I think there's probably a case for not having orcs in the south, purely because they're already so prominently featured across so many campaigns - by leaving them out of the south, we can give other factions a chance to shine, drakes in particular. With that said, though, pirate orcs based on Palmi...

Re: Dunefolk Lore - Consolidation

Eitherway, not explaining where they come from is also a good way to go for me. We could ignore the emigration part from where ever they may have come. But the backstory with the war and magic runes and alliances with trolls is something I would consider an "interesting backstory". Oh yeah, I like ...

Re: Dunefolk Lore - Consolidation

Why do we need to establish this? I see no reason why this shouldn't be left open-ended. The Dunefolk themselves wouldn't necessarily know where they came from, beyond perhaps legends about a great exodus. Leaving a bit of mystery in that area could give more creative freedom for anyone who wants t...

Re: Dunefolk Lore - Consolidation

With regards to the origin of the Dunefolk, and how they came to be on the Great Continent: Why do we need to establish this? I see no reason why this shouldn't be left open-ended. The Dunefolk themselves wouldn't necessarily know where they came from, beyond perhaps legends about a great exodus. Le...

Re: When are Javelineers useful?

If I was rebalancing the game, I'd give Javelineers skirmisher and ranged marksmen to give them a role in hunting down low-health enemies. In multiplayer, the Fencer usually fills this role for loyalists, as it can skirmish. I also think its attack, with four strikes, is well suited to hunting down...

Re: Maximum damage from a single strike, or in a single turn

An entirely different approach: Do multiplayer scenarios count? And does the Dunefolk count? If yes: which version? I mention this because of two things: 1) In 1.14.x, the Dunefolk has the Dune Cataphract (Lawful, Level 3) with an attack that does 44-1 pierce (45-1 if strong). Even though it might ...

How did you get to this? I tried this with a strong Iron Mauler, with 25% leadership and 25% time of day, and got 86 damage per strike.

Re: Dunefolk Rework - Unit Descriptions

There's a couple of things in the Dunefolk descriptions that need changing. While most Dunefolk castes serve an additional practical purpose beyond only direct warfare, Dune Soldiers are among the few who are completely dedicated to military purposes. By train intensely to hone their skill in swordp...

Re: Scenario Review: NR 11 - Eastern Flank

(1) What difficulty levels have you played the scenario on? Normal, 1.15.2. (2) How difficult did you find the scenario? (1-10) 10. I couldn't beat it after two tries. I probably could have got there eventually, but it just wasn't fun for me. (3) How clear did you find the scenario objectives? Crys...
