Looking for MP era without magic

Post by andrewhanson »

Hello,
I played Wesnoth a few years ago and I seem to remember an addon that was just martial units.
Please let me know if there is one or if someone knows how to make it.
I am looking to play Wesnoth default without the undead faction and other units that use magic.
Thank you,
Andrew

Well, I can't tell you about old times, but there is now an faction in mainline which uses no magic nor arcane & coldness.

Before being added to the various eras of the 1.13/1.12 add-on servers, The Dark Legion was once the only faction that lacked any magic-based units. Perhaps you are referring to the Dark Legion?

You mean a variant of the Default Era that has no magic-based units? Looks like someone has to make it.

Magic is great! Why you don't want magic?

I was looking for a variant of the default era with no magic not just a faction. As for magic I don't play games with magic in them as the bible talks of magic as a sin. So maybe I would have to figure out how to make it, but I am not tech savvy and do not have the text writer needed.

Hello if you would like I can make you a simple modified default era without magic units or undead.

Hi i have released a mod named 'The Default & AOH [no magic]'

It is currently just the normal default and AOH eras without any mages, magic units or undead. If anyone sees any magic units which i forgot to remove post.

Later i will add new non-magic units to balance out the ones who have been removed.

Since we are actually going through with this farce, I like to point out that elves and drakes are all magical units. You have to remove them too. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Perhaps you should think twice before laughing.

It may not be funny either way.

@lord knightmage

Hmm... True, but that is a more minor thing and not necessarily relevant.

I am not suprised at getting flack for creating this type of add-on. But I didn't do it because I personally think it is better but instead to be helpful. I figure everyone has their own preferences and The Point of wesnoth is that it is editable, so if this is not how you would like to play then that is perfectly reasonable.

Thank you very much The_Gnat I really appreciate you going through the trouble. Sorry I haven't gotten back sooner but I've been really busy, but thanks again.
Andrew
P.S. Sorry for the flack you're getting for this. I know no magic is odd for gamers.

There are some more "modern" eras that don't look like they would have magic (I don't know though): viewtopic.php?f=19&t=45114 , viewtopic.php?f=19&t=26298 , viewtopic.php?f=19&t=37434

Glad you are enjoying it. Also my profile picture was drawn by valkier (a while ago) for the phoenix knight.
