Re: Heir to the Throne Update (Current Focus: S1)

Okay, the next version of S1. - Blue was still getting too distracted with Chantal's elves, so map was changed. Chantal no longer has a ford to the south, nor is there a path towards her keep. - Gold balancing for normal & hard - Green restricted to just level 1 units. With that change and increased...

Re: Li'sar's Characterization in HttT (Spoilers)

Thanks, I felt guilty about not copying the style of writing, and you did a better job than I could hope to. Thank you sir. I noticed you cut out the Vonryn sub-story, is that to make it wiki friendly as Whiskyjack suggested or because you feel it is over-complicating or out of place in the story? ...

Re: Li'sar's Characterization in HttT (Spoilers)

That might work, although the military commanders are at the heart of Asheviere´s web even before the betrayal, as told in DM. Perhaps if you reword Ah, excellent point. This is why you shouldn't work in a vacuum, brain power multiples. :P ? Done. Li'sar is the daughter and heir-apparent of Queen A...

Re: Li'sar's Characterization in HttT (Spoilers)

1) Li'sar is established as a childish clown by the things she says, the silly tactics she employs and ultimately being so easily and thoroughly beaten by a fleeing rebel force. That is easy enough to just be rewritten entirely, both the dialogue and the gameplay. 2) Li'sar is captured by the rebel...

Re: Heir to the Throne Update (Current Focus: S1)

Maybe on medium at least let the goblin rider focus on you like in the hard setting? Or maybe with halved values? That should be enough with the altered map to make it more challenging. I tried this, but the target inclusion only tells him to move his units towards Konrad, not to the exclusion of e...

Re: Heir to the Throne Update (Current Focus: S1)

Hey, finally had time to try this out as well. I played on normal. Thanks for giving it a shot! What I would like to see is a short line that the orcs are burning the forest wherever they move. I found that mechanic quite interesting and wanted to see that, but I didn't even notice it at the beginn...

Re: Campaign idea: Li'sar's adventures

Quick note: I've altered the thread title to reflect spoilers are contained within, so we can discuss with freedom. I think there are numerous posts that already gave away tidbits (Konrad's not the heir?!?!), but thank you for attempting to spoiler proof everything. This would mean a lot of toiling ...

Re: Campaign idea: Li'sar's adventures

So many good responses, I'm glad that this has taken off so well. Apologies for stepping in on this discussion, but I just want to remind posters that other campaigns rely on Asheviere and various lore during that era. While I would always like to see improvements to overall storyline, changes made ...

Re: Campaign idea: Li'sar's adventures

In the early years of Garard's reign, the throne wasn't really protecting the border settlements from orcish raids very well. The locals managed what would usually be impossible, that is bargaining some kind of shaky peace treaty with the orcs (probably involving some heavy tribute). However, that ...

Re: Campaign idea: Li'sar's adventures

Taking BfW's mainline characters and turning them into complex, interesting and believable people would be quite an undertaking. It really can't be done one character at a time, because compelling writing is about the interaction between characters. Creating one thoughtful character that must inter...

Re: Campaign idea: Li'sar's adventures

That said, she clearly does have enough loyal troops for some offensive operations, even without relying on orcs (at the very least, she has enough to send an army out under Li'sar, and another towards Lintanir, and another to the gryffins). Agreed, and it could be part of the reason she sent Li'sa...

One tick is 10 nano seconds. Depending on what you're using as a frame of reference.

Re: Campaign idea: Li'sar's adventures

Is their any evidence for the notion that Ashevier was looking for deniability when she sent the orcs? I don't recall any. Besides, it wasn't a small-time raid. It was a major military campaign, and everyone seemed to know who's orcs they were. True, but there are plenty of examples throughout hist...
