Purger of Evil SP campaign (Wesnoth 1.12)

Post by ResExsention » April 4th, 2018, 3:30 am

Hello, Wesnoth.

I have been into the Wesnoth game for quite some time now, but this is my first time on the forums, so it's so nice to be meeting you all!

This is the first campaign that I plan to make "professional" with its own forum thread. It is one called the Purger of Evil, and is out for release into the add-ons server soon. It has a sort of book feel to it, and is meant to be a fast paced campaign with close calls on every turn, especially on the hardest difficulty.

This campaign simulates you reading the journal of Lieutenant James D. Archer of the Everglade Army 5th contingent. I intend to not get too deep into the mechanics of this campaign so that you become more tempted to play it, but you mostly just fight loyalists of your own type, and during your journeys, other outlandish factions (dwarves, bandits, etc.).

I'm not providing any pictures, as I want you to play the game to figure out what happens, and not guess from here.

All comments and feedback received on this thread would be gratefully accepted, and, if feasible, will be part of a future update of this campaign. I'm looking mostly for light, constructive criticism, side balancing refinements, and future scenario ideas, but anything you have for me is acceptable.

Thanks.

Add-on is now on the server. It's quite big (65 MB), probably due to the embedded music from the UMC music books and West's Chronicles (it's under GPL, so I do have the right to use the files however I want, passing on those rights to others...)

Note you can list music addons as dependency instead of duplicating them.

I know. I just duplicated them as I found that I would be wasting others' time by having them download files the campaign doesn't exactly need. It slims down the file size, even if only by 20 MB.

Hey, cool campaign so far and interesting story!

I think you accidentally set the campaign's first scenario as Scenario 2?
For scenario 1 I just ran straight northeast with my leader while the poor loyal units mostly died distracting enemies.
I couldn't beat scenario 2 on Insane (don't think it's possible without very good luck), but barely managed it on hard. The trick I used was to send two sacrificial spearmen into the bottlenecks to block the other two leaders' armies :whistle:

Scenario 2
(16.92 KiB) Not downloaded yet

For the objectives notes, it's really hard to read that dark blue text - some lighter color like white/light blue would be much easier to read.

Looking forward to more scenarios! :D

Hi,

Here are a few comments :

There is a typo in the introduction "[...] to get to get my wife [...]"
Special comments on 1st scenario are hard to read (blue on white)
Typo outro 1st scenario "I need to you find those" -> "I need you to find those"

Outro, on the roleplay side, it would be better for the healer to come and explain herself what kind of ingredient she needs, except if the king is omniscient somehow.

The campaign end at the first scenario, not sure of there are more for now.
