Poll: Best new campaign of 2018

Post by James_The_Invisible » January 1st, 2019, 2:54 pm

Another year has passed and once again it is the time to choose best singplayer campaign of the year. 2018 was a year of many new campaigns: over 30 campaigns were published for the first time. The amount is too high for a regular poll, so everyone who wants to vote this time has to actually make a post and write the name of their favorite campaign. You can choose 1 from this list:
  • A Sangine Tale (Ani's Legacy, Ani's Quest) by Aetheric Forum topic
  • Sand in the Wind by Mathbrush Forum topic
  • Wrath of the Lich Lords by Sur_191 Forum topic
  • A Fiery Birth by Mathbrush Forum topic
  • Peasant Uprising by Brass Harpooner Forum topic
  • A Little Adventure by Argesilao Forum topic
  • Royalties Forgotten by ResExsention (no thread on official forums)
  • A Magicians Tale by Argesilao Forum topic
  • Voyage of a Drake Samonella Forum topic
  • Purger of Evil by ResExsention Forum topic
  • Hunted outlaws by Lordlewis Forum topic
  • Tunnel Rats by TreeHugger Forum topic
  • The Three Sisters Saga by Argesilao Forum topic
  • Operation Flight of the Pelicans by Nenau Forum topic
  • Chieftain Granak by Xara Forum topic
  • Rebirth in Nature by RainKnight Forum topic
  • Epic Between the Tides by Argesilao Forum topic
  • The Revenge of Kumakatok by Tehlazercat, ProgrammerNerd4, rosearmor Forum topic
  • The Battle for the Contrabass Clarinet by Kaylin, Beatrice Forum topic
  • Hive Mind by Shadowvox, Lucas Forum topic
  • Invasion of the Undead by Powxjason, craftermatt360, Biggie_Cheese122, Necronomicon Forum topic
  • The Revenge of the Five by Max, Brandon, Hudson Forum topic
  • Lich Terror by Pawles22 & Serpent7776 Forum topic
  • The Home by Centurio Forum topic
  • The Underdog by eigth_eyes Forum topic
  • Exploration of Life and Death by KC Hedges (no thread on official forums)
  • The Wolves' Last Path by skeptical_troll Forum topic
  • Home of the Undead by Anagkai, AnarethsEnde; graphics: Triakanthos Forum topic
  • In Defence of Gaer Derole by Elivaras (no thread on official forums)
  • The Garardine Ascendancy by Argesilao Forum topic
  • Xalzar Quest by Argesilao Forum topic
Given the amount of interest in previous poll, I think I will let the poll run for whole January.

We only choose one, our very favorite, right?

I have played almost none of these, but I thought "A Fiery Birth" was very good.

Yes, you choose 1. So your vote goes to A Fiery Birth?

Forum thread for 'The Underdog' by eigth_eyes.

EDIT:
I'm voting for 'Voyage of a Drake' by Samonella. I like it the best out of those I've managed to finish so far.

Oh, it looks like the time for voting has run out so I am going to post the results.
Most (2, was it not 3 at some point?) votes went to Voyage of a Drake. Cogratulations, Samonella. Second place is shared by A Fiery Birth by Mathbrush, Sand in the Wind by Mathbrush and The Garardine Ascendancy by Argesilao who all received 1 vote.
Too less people voted this time in my opinion but one of the reasons could be that they had to actually post, not just do a click.

You seem to think that everyone plays all of the UMC campaigns, but they have some reason not to vote in your polls. I think the real problem is that most people haven't played more than one or two so they don't feel comfortable declaring one of them to be the best.
Campaigns: Dead Water,
The Founding of Borstep,
Secrets of the Ancients,
and WML Guide
