Intentionally silly campaign: Shameless Crossover Excuse

Thanks to a discussion about The Dark Hordes and how Gwiti's portraits have been borrowed by mainline campaigns, I had an idea for an entirely out of continuity, timeline screwing campaign in which Gwiti Ha'atel gets revenge for having his portraits used by other units. Obviously, this is never inte...

Re: Gwiti Ha'atel sprites

Exactly. The only issue is that TDH is no longer mainline, and thus noobs might not realise TDH did it first. What I don't know is whether that entails new portraits for TDH or new portraits for DiD & NR - bearing in mind that what I'm hoping for is that one day The Dark Hordes is a mainline cam...

Re: Gwiti Ha'atel sprites

Sorry about the long hiatus, National Novel Writing Month & Windows' bugginess distracted me. 2 replaced frames and 3 new ones today, so I'll have to describe the change to the base and defend frames (unless I'm wrong about there being a limit of 3 attached images per post): I've removed the TC ...

Re: Eve of Death

We don't know the exact details of how ghosts are bound to the material realm in Wesnoth. He might simply live in an area where he physically cannot get his hands on one of the components needed to summon a ghost no matter how hard he searches. Alternately, he's heard all the horror stories of what ...

Re: Change the AMLA system

...Oh. I retract my comment. I'm guessing the WML for the L0 units is done too.

Re: Change the AMLA system

Requiring the addition of a unit is going to slow this project down, unless the Initiate already has attack and defend frames at least. Summoning a loyal L1 Mage/DA to skirt the issue would likely give Loyalists/Rebels/Undead the edge if they ever get to AMLA their mages.

Seriously though, if you want the images for the normal trolls, look in the folder where Wesnoth is installed. I'd give you exact directions but I'm on a borrowed computer right now and have orders not to install anything.

Re: L3 Orcish Assassin

Try reading. Units that reach less than level 3 to have higher level advancements added (Reason: An uneven tree is more dynamic and interesting. Some unit lines are more balanced and interesting without an L3 (or even L2) unit)). That wasn't one of the bolded and detailed ones. I don't really have ...

Re: L3 Orcish Assassin

As to the campaign balancing, fair enough, but I was more speaking to the fact that multiplayer is not the be all, end all of what is adjusted in the game. Your idea is even an FPI. It isn't, actually, despite someone saying they'd add it to the list. It wasn't covered under "Most units should...

Re: L3 Orcish Assassin

...OK, I should have checked before asking then. Sorry. Thuogh I'd still like to see better AMLAs for units that never reach L3, just as a bit of compensation, that's a different complaint entirely. EDIT: And the mainline factions aren't balanced for campaigns - the campaigns decide on a case by cas...

Re: Shifting Elvish Sorceress (and Human Mage) - Racial purity?

I think having the same mage unit appear in two factions highlights how they're independent of the Loyalist government. They help whichever side they feel is in the right (or, depending on the mage, pays them better) even if it means they have to fight their fellows. Course that's just a in-world e...

L3 Orcish Assassin / Orcish Shyde has a dumb moment

It always bugged me looking at the Northerner side, and playing Son of the Black-Eye, that the only race which really considers poison and backstabbing a fair means of advancement doesn't have a 'Big Bad'-type assassin unit, especially for campaigns (and as a logical way of making levels where Slaye...

Re: The Conquest of a Dark Queen

Since I claimed to have the skills to do Frankenrecolours for The Dark Hordes, I might as well volunteer for Alanya's art once my usual computer is fixed. Can't install GIMP on this one, sadly. Which units is Alanya meant to be based off, and what weapons at what levels? It probably wouldn't be that...

I know what you are referring to Lastjuan, and thanks for not giving away any spoilers. I noticed this myself, and I had previously been feeding her exp just to lose it all. It has to do primarily with her change as consistent with the story, from one group to the other, but the only viable solutio...

Re: Question on Wesnoth Background

It (most likely) conflicts with Shadow Master's campaign "Invasion from the Unknown" where "Eloh" apparently turns out to be a mortal (albeit ridiculously powerful) elven mage called Elynia. Then again Elynia looks nothing like the false Elohs faced in UtbS and I doubt Yechnagot...
