Here are the scenario.cfgs, in case you want to read through the storyline:
Thank you! I wanted to have some context for what has already been done for the faction.

Re: [mainline] Renaming Khalifate for Wesnoth-ian identity

To weigh in on a number of points raised - sorry to not address every single one, but just addressing ones I feel are relevant to keep things on track and avoiding a super long post (it's already long, I know). Simply not true. Loyalists are somewhat culturally medieval european inspired, Khalifate ...

Re: Oath of Allegiance [SP Desert People Campaign for 1.13.5

Is it still playable on 1.12? I would love to see the backstory you developed as it ties in to the current discussion.

Re: [mainline] Melee "marksman"

But is not the melee unit that launched this debate only a first level unit to begin with? Bahhhhh. You're right. :P Alternatively "proficiency" or "prowess" could work, but they sound a bit strange and very broad. I do think 'Proficiency' would also be another option like 'Mastery' that could fit ...

Re: [mainline] Renaming Khalifate for Wesnoth-ian identity

To address a number of ideas in one post.... For all of the debate about Caliph and Emir, I am not inherently opposed to the connotation behind either. While I understand the logic behind choosing a word that does not have cultural connotation, I do not think that either of the two are anything but ...

Re: SHORTEST CAMPAIGN EVER: The Final Exam

Although the version for Wesnoth 1.12 was last updated in 2014, the version for Wesnoth 1.13 was updated in April 2017, and the feedback started on Dec 4th. I think it's a bit early to assume it's unmaintained. ;) I would normally agree with you, except that the author has not been active on the fo...

Re: [mainline] Melee "marksman"

Precision is 80% cth. I know right? :lol: Joking aside, that one has the most promise to be applicable to both melee and ranged, though it has less of a relevance to weaponry as Marksman does. Mastery may be a better fit, particularly since it would be on leveled units that would have mastered that...

Re: [mainline] Renaming Khalifate for Wesnoth-ian identity

Many thanks to mintleaf for consolidating and editing the post at the beginning, it is very helpful. First step, faction name - if you have any and all ideas floating around, throw them out now as I will make the poll for that aspect soon, following the model proposed by Sapient. There is no require...

Re: [mainline] Melee "marksman"

Option 2 is not terrible as long as the name clearly gives the player the same connotation so that they know the ability is the same. Option 3 might be the only viable route though, as I I cannot come up with a word that would fit both melee and ranged off-hand. Outside of accuracy, what other name ...

Re: SHORTEST CAMPAIGN EVER: The Final Exam

Given that I do not believe that this campaign is still being maintained, I am going to incorporate all of the suggested changes into the scenarios and see how well that plays, as well as fixing the dialogue. I will put up a new version so that others can test it out.

Re: [mainline] Renaming Khalifate for Wesnoth-ian identity

Here's my proposal: I continue my TXE add–on as a separate era, while you guys can develop another faction or era which will be more swiftly included in the mainline. To you first point, of course, we can focus solely on the Khalifate as they exist now and now in reference to what you may be doing ...

Re: [mainline] Renaming Khalifate for Wesnoth-ian identity

And for now I really doubt that many would like 'to be' khalifates also because of these incomprehensible arabian names. Look how the author of 'Dune' make desert Freemen very popular. All his books are filled with eastern/arabic culture, but there is no problem in it, contrary to how people take k...

Re: SHORTEST CAMPAIGN EVER: The Final Exam

Anyway, I don't see one major issue being adressed in the changelogs that i've been having, and that ties in with the turn limits: there's no early finish bonus Not having a turn limit is different to many campaigns, but I think that's good. The beginner hints suggest to advance slowly instead of r...

Re: Abandoned Campaigns - Need Maintainers - Open to Anyone

It looks like a current snapshot of campaigns is needed to understand what is currently on each version, what is maintained, what could be ported, etc. I will make another spreadsheet and post it here in the near future for anyone interested in maintaining older campaigns.

Re: [mainline] Renaming Khalifate for Wesnoth-ian identity

My personal preference though is to have them be just a different culture of humans, and use new description and names to give them a new fantasy feel which incorporates hints from known cultures of the world and hints of a more fantastical settings. Personally, my opinion mirrors your own. I would...
