Ooh! I like this idea! It's a little unspecific though...

This unit does 1 less damage for each unit next to it.
Call it Militia, Draft, Untrained or something other. Seeing the unit you just bought and seeing "Claustrophobic" doesn't feel good.

Unless we start changing/forking Wesnoth into the Skirmish Game of Horror, with traits like Wimp, Fearful, Maniacal, etc. and factions like The Shadow Men, The Watchers, The Aware, The Elysian Nether and what not.[/brainstorm]

That'd have to be 'for each unit next to it, beyond the first', otherwise it'd never be able to attack without a penalty.

So what? It's not a problem to have a constant penalty, and adding the exception is just a complication.
It's all fun and games until someone loses a lawsuit. Oh, and by the way, sending me private messages won't work. :/ If you must contact me, there's an e-mail address listed on the website in my profile.

I think "Loner" is a better name for it but take the idea where ever you want. ;)
