Orcish Campaign: The Underdog

Post by eight_eyes » August 4th, 2018, 9:33 am

I just published the campaign The Underdog on the Wesnoth Add-on server (1.14).

This is supposed to be its forum thread.

ImageImageImage
All of my (three whole) custom units (frankensteined of course).

The scenarios are mostly finished. - suggestions/critique/ideas are welcome (of course).

This campaign is about inner strength and learning to accept losses. (In wesnoth combat not in real life.) - At least this is supposed to be.
It stars an orcish assassin, Prot and his ragtag band of orcish refugees (or something like that).

The campaign is yet to be balanced (but it should be fine on Medium difficulty) -> General difficulty is Intermediate.

Artwork is coming soonish.

If you have anything to comment about the campaign feel free to do it here (feedback article for this campaign doesn't exist right now).

Have fun!&Thanks for playing!

Intro text, first scenario
'He lacked strenght, but...and as time passed he bacame an assasin...' -> strength, became
'A approximately a week...with an other tribe.' -> Approximately..., another/some other
'Even for his surprise, he was...succesful...keen of Thud's rule.' -> Surprinsing even him/To his surprise...successful...on/of being under

The description of armswield is somewhat...clumsy/awkward. I can understand it, but it doesn't look like it's meant to be understood. xD

While the XP is blue, there was no advancement listed in the unit description (Orcish Worker), so I just tried to advance the unit. (You renamed the lvl 2 unit to 'Orcish Headsman', but didn't change it in the 'advance to' for the lvl 1 unit.)

Thanks. I was in a hurry when I changed the names of the unit (and then I forgot about it :doh: ).

How is the armswield ability's description not meant to be understood?
(I corrected the grammatical mistakes and fixed the problem with the headsman - I made a small update. :whistle: )

Adjacent own units of level 2 and 3 will do more damage in battle. When a unit adjacent to, of level 2 or 3 and on the same side as a unit with Armswield engages in combat, its attacks do 25% more damage.

The armswield ability of this unit enables adjacent units of the same side to deal more damage in combat, though this only applies to units of level 2 and 3.


Both versions are messy. Reading them is like getting constantly tripped up while walking. ._.

Now I see it too (ouch). I will definitely change it.

Buzzards
(Mind you, I don't know if my corrections are right for sure, those things just felt wrong to me.)
'Still, losses were taken by the other side either.' -> 'as well' or maybe change the sentence to 'their side was not without losses either'
'Prot was desperate, for he thought that most of the goblins will run away' -> 'would'
'among the goblinfolk and that they are willing to fight for him.' -> 'were'
'knew how much commotion this battle caused' -> 'much of a commotion this battle had caused'
...err...can I just ask you to look over everything you wrote and check if you used a tense consistently? It doesn't feel like you did.

Why is killing a specific enemy a bonus objective? Can't I just defeat any of those three for the bonus objective? :/

Bested but not Broken (Yeah, I'm cheating. Don't worry, I will play it for real at some point. xD)
'They arrived at Melmog with almost before the wolf-raiders wanted to strike down.'
Not only is this not really intelligble, that sentence is there twice (with some variation).
