Re: What's the deal with the time limit?

Of course, it would be optional, but it would also be a hallmark of an exceptional campaign/scenario. Also, it would provide scenario makers with a whole lot of different possibilities.

Re: What's the deal with the time limit?

Fair enough, but then what you are asking for is not just the removal of the turn limit, but a scenario that keeps running until the player decides it is over? Not quite.

Re: What's the deal with the time limit?

Yeah, but that's just a message. What if I could fight those reinforcements? Hell, even if they'd be unbeatable, I'd still like to fight them. ;)

What's the deal with the time limit?

Hello, I've registered myself just to ask this one question - where's the possible, plausible explanation of the turn limit? I get the basic "why" - it's to make things harder. But what is this game? A shooter, where you have 3 minutes to kill the boss, because of a bomb that'll explode at 0:00 and ...
