Don't forget we spell like Americans in Wesnoth. So we keep our scepters even when we go out to the theater in the center of town. :-)

(One of my earliest threads was on this, and, yes, I know the Scepter of Fire is inconsistent in its usage.)

So, "Scepter of Fire" not "Sceptre of Fire", if what you're saying?

OK. I believe I can now change the title of the campaign as displayed on the server now, so it won't be a big deal.

Yep, that's it.

(Somehow theatRE has some respectability in the US, despite, or perhaps because of, its uniqueness.)

Campaign announcement: version 0.0.6 is released. New scenario (placed in between 1 and 2), an IMHO balanced 1st scenario, and minor plot changes.


For those who many be wondering why I'm not at 0.1 yet, its because I want to have 2 balanced scenarios first.

I'm very random in my british v. american spelling usage. I think its because I read a lot of un-"translated" British authors.

Mostly I tend towards british when it uses "-re" not "-er", but towards american when it uses "o" not "ou". But I sometimes use "-er", and sometimes "ou". :P

I like the new second scenario a lot. Playing on medium it might have been too easy. I immediately fell back to the second row of fortifications and only had to hold there for a turn or two. Maybe there's a delay in the door closing of a turn or two? Give the guardsmen a chance to shine.

Also, in the first scenario, I had no idea where to move the caravans to load them or unload them. You might want to put some images to indicate where they're supposed to go.

Also, in the fourth scenario, the Dwarvish Smith is invisible!

It's fun playing as the dwarves finally!

Yeah, its, um, not balanced yet. :oops:. I'll work on it this weekend.

OK. I'll have a signpost, and when you move within one hex of it they unload.

Yeah, I don't have graphics for him yet. I'm going to shadow's thread right now to get them.

Yes, I have also long wanted a dwarves campaign. ;P

I suggest giving the Guardsmen in the second scenario random traits.
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've releaes 0.1.0, which has some flaws (obviously), but the first two scenarios should be relatively balanced.

Got them. :] This will fix the problem of smiths being invisible in scenario 3.

Question: Why does the smith (elder1) have ranged attack images, but none of the advancements do?

The first idea was that they all would have a ranged attack and I animated the first level with an ranged attack, well I´ve but it alltogether so you can choose what you need or not
