Chronological error in the Campaign The Rise of Wesnoth

Post by Yomar » September 17th, 2019, 2:55 pm

A guy told me that there is an historical error in the Campaign The Rise of Wesnoth, in the fourth scenario, the background image that introduces the story, king Eldaric is fighting a Troll, but the thing is that there were no Trolls at that time on the Green Island, in fact king Haldric has even to ask information on what a Troll even is, when he has to face one of the four trials imposed him from the Elves.

Your issue is indeed true, but the solution requires to repaint (or waste) story art, which is rather complicated. Until now, I myself have never noticed this anachronism, and assume others did neither. Thus, I would leave this relatively unimportant issue alone, given that few have the skills and time to redo the picture in question.
As a solution for the time being, we can engage in some mental gymnastics and imagine that trolls came in just after Haldric left ^^
