The History of Burin

Post by uzytkownik » August 19th, 2008, 9:24 pm

It still on early stage of development. However I post it here as "Release Early, Release Often".

It introduces a few events before fundation of wesnoth - some of them may be unorthodox (I have a plot in mind which changes a few things that has been said in TRoW - but only if we assume the full knowledge of them).

Current stage is:

- Scenario 1: Playable (I hope). Not balanced. However the tactic is too easy so I'm planning a bonus for defending the fron line. The difficulty levels have to be changes as the gold do not change the hardness (I have to allow recruit L2 units)
- Scenario 2: Talking only
- Scenario 3: Playable (I hope). Not balanced. The 3 paths have to be more balanced so the choice is more harder and/or make the main one virtually impassable.
- Scenario 4: Not finished. Need to implement - bonus per turn of resistance. The lost of the 'blown up' units etc. (i.e. not pushed back).

All scenarios needs to have better dialogs - preferable with scotish accent for dwarves ;) (I'm not native speaker so I have no idea how to create that).

I've attached the current stage. <del>I'll post it to github as soon as they finish 'pushing changes'</del> The git repository: [url]git://github.com/uzytkownik/the_history_of_burin.git[/url]. To campaign server I'll push as soon as I get something more or less playable.

Constructive and valid comments are welcome - even 'not very nice'. I have no experience with the scenario development and with WML - that's my first campaign.

As the bug you posted about in the wml workshop hasn't been pushed to your public git repo, here's the (trivial) patch. ;)

You were right. It was only fixed in my index.

Current status at git:
- Scenario 1: Playable (I hope). Not balanced. However the tactic is too easy so I'm planning a bonus for defending the fron line. The difficulty levels have to be changes as the gold do not change the hardness (I have to allow recruit L2 units)
- Scenario 2: Talking only
- Scenario 3: Playable (I hope). Not balanced. The 3 paths have to be more balanced so the choice is more harder and/or make the main one virtually impassable.
- Scenario 4: Playable (I hope). Not balanced.
- Scenario 5: Talking only
- Scenario 6a: Playable? Not balanced
- Scenario 6b: Not started
- Scenario 6c: Not started
- Scenario 7: Not started
- Scenario 8: Not started. Talking only?

Please update - the old savefiles however are not suppose to work.

Any suggestion concerning scenarios 1-5?

hey, I just wanted to say that I hope you finish this campaign; it's very fun to play, although the english could use some work :-). But keep hacking at it; I look forward to seeing where Burin comes from!

what if the Bible's claims about Christ depicted accurate, verifiable history? given some research, you might be surprised at the evidence...

Thanks - now I know that somebody used and enjoyed my work (Which I didn't entirely believe).
First I code - then I work hard on story (well - story as in description not as the story of Burin).

yeah; I'm surprised more people haven't commented! And if you need any help with the English later on, let me know. Hold strong,

Well. I guess that if I spend some time with it all I will need help is Scottish. I'm currently not entirely interesting in writing (coding is much more interesting ;)) so I fill out story fast to finish it later. Of course all patches/suggestions are welcome.
