Yeah, I figured that out about half an hour after making that post and forgot to edit it. :P

Re: Imperial Era Campaign - Epic of Vaniyera

OK, think i figured out the problem; if you edit the scenario file for 4_Just_in_Time.cfg, and change every instance of "{MODIFY_UNIT description=" to "{MODIFY_UNIT id=", it'll probably work. I haven't tested this yet.

Re: Epic of Vaniyera

So I just got to Remnants of the past, and I got Vaniyera leveled up to Shadowdancer during Just in Time. In Remnants of the Past, Vaniyera is back to being a Veiledblade, although I can recall the shadowdancer version of him.. I lose if either of them dies. I'm playing on medium difficulty. This i...

Re: The Imperium era

FYI, there's already an era called the "Imperial Era", so calling yours the "Imperium Era" could get kind of confusing. You might want to think about coming up with a new name, especially if "Imperium" is in any way related to warhammer.

Re: An evil skeleton

The Wikipedia article is correct that in general , ankhs and Lichs make a certain sense and it's OK to have them go together. But the thing is, the ankh is already used within the world of Wesnoth, and it's associated with light magic - White Mages, Paladins, the Holy Amulets you pick up in the East...

Re: Heir to the Throne rant/idea suggestion

WRT Gryphons being intelligent - I'm the guy who wrote the first campaign where they talked (Scepter of Fire), and I didn't mean for them to be "rational animals" on the same level as humans, orcs, elves, dwarves, drakes, saurians, mermen, nagas. They're less intelligent than ogres, probab...

Re: What are you reading right now?

Just finished the Book of the Short Sun . I've now read BotNS, BotLS, BotSS, the Wizard-Knight, and Latro in the Mist. There's more good stuff by Gene Wolfe to read, but I think I've covered most of the major stuff... I'll probably be exploring other authors in the near future. Also just finished No...

Re: About the format of attacks ( damage-strikes )

I've been around too long to be of use in guessing what new players might find useful or not. But I just wanted to add that using a symbol (like the crossed swords) that we don't normally use for other things might make people try to actually find out what it means instead of assuming what it means...

Re: Gathering data for own/origin of the rumor

There used to be plans to add a "High Elves" faction, and they were tentatively placed on that part of the map of the Great Continent, but that plan fell by the wayside and I'm pretty sure that line on the WesnothGeography page is just something no one's bothered to remove yet. (If you're ...

Re: About the format of attacks ( damage-strikes )

A small change is indeed possible and the easiest to make, but changing things solely for the sake of changing them is also never a good idea. A space would help if you made it 7 x3, but given that the game currently explains 7-3, which it would still do with 7x3 or 7 x3 or 7 x 3, is the change wor...

Re: Wesnoth as a board game

Flashy content, punchy sound effects. I don't know, does that mean it's really popular? :? Uh... it's a board game, it doesn't have sound effects. :? Or do you mean the website? In any case, yes, the game is fairly popular, from what I can tell. I own it myself, as does one of my friends, and IMO i...

Re: You can kill an army with an Ancient Lich

I also remember that units you recruit could have "loyal" as a trait; but as it didn't have an explanation when you hovered over it, and I don't think that the manual explained it (either that, or I just didn't check), I didn't know what it did, and didn't care if one of those units died....
