RPG-Style Campaigns

Post by CarpeGuitarrem »

So I've been poking around a little, and I was wondering if there were any Wesnoth campaigns that especially resemble skirmish RPGs, with, say, a small amount of units, and a core group of heroes?

Most campaigns center around a small group of heroes, I think, but I am unaware of how many use a small amount of units.

For the most part, you;re in the wrong place for RPG campaigns. This is a strategy game based on the movement of large armies, primarily. That being said, most campaigns do have a core set of unique units, and most have at least a few rpg-ish scenarios. Northern Rebirth is a good example, as (to a lesser extent) is the Rise of Wesnoth. DOn't know about UMC, though.

There's several multiplayer RPG-style scenarios, but not single-player ones.

My campaign (Invasion from the Unknown, 1.3.10+ only) features RPGish scenarios every 7 scenarios or so. But the rest is pure Wesnoth. :)

If you want to develop your character, Under the Burning Suns (builtin in 1.3.10+, the earlier versions don't feature the following) allows you to upgrade your hero in a RPGish way. Very nice.

If you are looking for RPG's, I would highly recommend Bob's RPG's. While they are not campaigns in the wesnoth sense, they are very good and put together well.

I may also point to my "Clonkinator's RPG". It doesn't have as much story as Bob_The_Mighty's ones, but there are also some nice tricks and traps and a good piece of WML, which allows you to have a small inventory for example. I'd recommend you to try all of them out though - that's the best way to find out which ones you like and which ones you don't.
