Re: Removing mainline campaign(s)

just seems to me like a deadlock right now, because all other things are also kind of put on hold because of the pending lore rework. which also affects WoV again, because its hard to even tell what should happen there as long as the rework is in limbo. As I see it, WoV's story doesn't work that we...

Re: Another Statistical Measure

The issue is not technical, it's psychological. No amount of "proof" will convince someone who believes the RNG is flawed. Given the nature of randomness, you method is guarenteed to produce some highly skewed results which will be locked upon as "proof" the RNG is biased even though such resulst a...

Re: Wings of Victory 1.0.5 (Drake Campaign for BfW 1.14/1.15)

As was stated before, humans in LotR and GoT are highly misogynistic, but nevertheless there are strong women in those stories. I'm sorry but this is simply not true. The most misogynistic thing you can attribute to humans, or anyone in LotR is one old man in a position of power, being opposed to h...

Disclaimer: this post is more meta-discussion than WoV. I will keep it to this one post so as to not go too much off-topic, if you want to discuss further, send me a PM or open a thread elsewhere ;-) (I also wrote this before reading Hejnewar's post) To somewhat break this circlejerk about circleje...

Re: Happy skeletons in water with a bridge!

Reminds me of a german ... uhm ... sexy story that became a meme back in the days. "aber warum„liegt hier überhaupt Stroh? - Und warum hast du eine Maske auf?"

Re: A grand design for singleplayer mainline lore

Since my name occasionally came up in the discussion and I never commented on my initial concerns again, I'd like to chime in once more. I was quite confused when I just looked it up and realized that this thread started almost a month ago. Which kind of serves to illustrate nemaara's point - if a p...

Re: Optimization Discussion - Legend of the Invincibles

I disagree about Dugi's gear in part 2. It's not that hard to get enough black pearls if you smash a bunch of gems and gear. Last time I played part two, I crafted my first Dugi's Ward in chapter 8. Of course you are theoretically able to craft at least the wards, but I always craft multiple Marrow...

Re: Optimization Discussion - Legend of the Invincibles

In the first post of the LotI thread, you can find links to a number of resources (e.g., available items). You can also find a link to this page, where some people eternalized some of their coolest units. Note that because of changes and nerfs some (or all) of these units might not be build-able lik...

Re: Reworking/Revising The Sceptre of Fire

If you're planning on adding RPG elements, I think they should be small, difficult to use, and fit in with the lore. A unit that can make adjacent units move faster would be a bit much imo. How about making it so that Runesmiths can set up runes that give special abilities? It would make sense lore...

Re: How is the Kingdom of Wesnoth organised?

Blackwater Port from Heir to the Throne is located on the west coast of Wesnoth, not far from the Bay of Pearls where Prince Haldric first landed. Interestingly, it is run by Sir Kaylan, 'one of the mightiest of the horse lords'. This seems a bit of a contradiction, considering we know (from Test o...

Re: The case against the Dwarvish Steelclad/Lord

So what could be done? The simplest and probably best solution in my opinion is to take away the resistances. They get +10% to blade at level 3, so that means they have the best defense against that damage type. If lore demands that they wear heavier armor, then keep the blade bonus, give them +10 ...

Re: Legend of the Invincibles

Also I am thinking about legacy of freezing north (iceberg), I find it quite boring, and somehow I have a feeling it is the one legacy mostly meele oriented (the others are more useable for everyone. Yep, I think the freezing north's legacy are most useful for Scythemasters. Because they have whirl...

Re: About add-on campaign Nightfall

I think there was a work in progress version uploaded at some point, but it was never finished and Kwandulin took it down intentionally from the addon server. I thought I had a version of that at some point, but I can't find it. No idea if Kwandulin will ever come back, but I think he dropped Nightf...

Re: Top Best UMC campaigns

I think my favourite ones are still the two arabian nights - first the one with the flying carpet unit; but the other one where you have hero units is pretty cool too ... there are also djinni in that one. There is also some epic-long one with about 200 scenarios? Or something like that. It is quit...
