Mage Campaign: Attack of the Undead

Post by wsultzbach »

I've made a mage campaign which starts with your city being attacked by the undead, then you must go eliminate the source. It has 3 scenarios and feels complete, but I'm thinking about making more. I just uploaded version 0.1 onto the campaign server, so play it and tell me what you think.

Downloading now.

I just wanted to say it's nice to have some mini-campaigns available for when people feel like some continuity but don't want to tackle a monster like HttT.

Okay, two things:

(1) For a "run for your lives!!" scenario, it's just far too easy to end-around the attacking force and take out the leader.
(2) Once you do so, the next scenario still gives you dialogue that indicates you failed to defeat the attacking undead.
(2b) The enemy leader in the 2nd Scenario is the same that you just killed in Scenario 1.

[EDIT] P.S. I'm playing on medium difficulty.

[EDIT 2] The source of the undead seems to be from the north [...]" (not "seams").

Yeah, I've got to make the 1st scenario alot harder, because technically the enemy leaders in the 1st and 2nd scenarios are the same. I gave them a geriatric name so if you killed the enemy leader in the 1st scenario it wouldn't seem to weird, but I'll give the him a lot more gold in the next release.

I doubt that will do it. The enemy forces go streaming for your villages and your mages (especially if you have a few with quick) can just walk around the enemy force.

See the attached replay.

Note: I'm using Wesnoth 1.12 so that may make a difference.

I've just now put 0.3 on the campaign server. I've added a new scenario and improved it overall.
I'm planing on releasing 1.0 soon, so I need feedback on the demilich in the final scenario (which I stole from The South Guard), would a normal lich or necromancer be better?

I've released 1.0, It has a few changes (mostly polishing). I need people who are interested to give me advice on balancing or any other improvements that could be made.

I find scenarios where you only have one unit available tactically a bit dull. Maybe allow recruitment of peasants in the first two scenarios, with a comment at the start to the effect of "Oh bugger, we're being attacked by tons of undead and we've only got mages and servants to fight them off" and the undead leader says "Bwahahahahahaha!"

I've just uploaded version 1.0.2, this is an important update because it fixes the bugs that caused 1.0.1 to be broken. I also allowed the player to recruit peasants.

Ok, I've just uploaded a small update, 1.0.3. I made minor edits to some maps as well as adding support for translations.

This campaign is going to be cool with the new mages. :D
