Hi Everyone

Now with the TDOOO v2.0.5 and DM v2.0.4 update, everyone who completed the campaign will get a golden laurel instead of a silver one and the overall level will be shown Daredevil, in other words Normal, in both campaigns.

PS: A small change, but it's always nice to have a gold instead of a silver laurel for completing the whole story.

Hi!

Playing version 2.0.3 of TdooO with BfW 1.14.16

scenario Wood in the Cave: The goal is to resist until the end of the turns, but objective provides a bonus for the early end of the scenario.

scenario Farewell: I think it can be an improvement if the signpost's position is visible from the beginning.

A very personal consideration regarding the maps of many scenarios: there are too many different types of terrains, and it seems that they have been selected randomly and scattered randomly. To look some map it's even disturbing, at least for me.
When I saw the map of the scenario hope die last I have lost all desire to play the scenario and to continuing to play the campaign.
It is a matter of personal taste, and therefore has a relative value, but I suggest you to heavy restyling all the maps.
Sorry. :(

Yes, silly mistake, it will be corrected in the new version.

For now, I'm not going to make such changes, the scenarios with reaching the goal are to be shrouded in mystery.

Sorry.
At the beginning, let me say right away I do not intend to change the design of the maps and their appearance. It's a pity you don't like them, but as you yourself said "It is a matter of personal taste" some people will like it and others will not. I devoted a lot of time and reflection to the creation of each of the maps for the TDOOO and for DM campaigns, so that there were many useful strategic points and had their exact appearance, where the topography is visible and diverse, just like in reality wild areas, especially at different times of the year they have their own unique look, or the places themselves have some hills, mountains, mixed forests. I would just call it my own map design style and I'm going to stick to that.

Thanks for sharing your opinion

Hello everyone

As you have noticed lately, new versions of TDOOO - The Demon of our Ourselves are coming out as well as DM - Distant Memory.

These are dialogue fixes, and some minor bugs as well little improvements (Most the minor spelling mistakes).

The spelling confusion is due to the fact that English is not my native language.

EDIT: If you have encountered the problem of magenta color with Dwarvish Herbalist and Ram riders line: Ram Fighter, Ram Cavalry, Ram Hussar. In v3.0.6 this has been fixed.

Have a nice play

Hello everyone, Kept you waiting, huh?


Without too much extension, I announce that a beta version of the Melody of Wrath campaign has been uploaded on the server 1.14

The story was created and realized by me while storyline idea and characters concept was made by me in collaboration with MihawkLucek

Now you have the opportunity to learn even more about the old world and its secrets!


Hearts of the North: Melody of Wrath


The story takes place thousands of years after the destruction of the kingdom of Ragged Hearts. These are the times when the great elven kingdoms begin to emerge on the Irda

It was a melody born of anger and despair ... It was with me from the beginning and it finally became me ...


A forgotten story, written with a trembling hand about a nightmare that happened long ago ... About a nightmare that started the great war of the elves ... This is a story erased from the memory of many, telling of a melody from years gone by ... About a melody playing in the heart of the heir of the woods of Whispers ... This is the story of Prince Lliwen ...

(12 Scenarios)


(Tested and Fully Playable)


Definitive Version was Published
Now only are planning general fixes


Using the opportunity, I want to show the outlines of other stories

Legend of Koar
Koar was first mentioned in TDOOO - The Demon of our Ourselves, where Storg was able to get his hammer during his promotion path

Spoiler:

Decision of the Gods
Addition to the history of TDOOO - The Demon of our Ourselves

Spoiler:

(Later I will add all of this to the main post)


And of course I am waiting for your Opinions and Feedbacks


Have a Nice Game!

Hey, I recently started your campaign named Melody of Wrath.

Typo: Irda > Irdya (from Intro storyline)
Are you sure that name is intended?

When reached Whispers of Hate, I'm not sure that Defeat Condition is not clear on my attached picture, leave with 'Death of any Hero' text only:

I am assuming it is, since I have seen this "typo" in all three campaigns and seeing the persistence, I just accepted it.

also, another story-driven campaign already? Might as well as give it a whirl.

I can't say it was intentional, thanks to you now I realized it should be Irda -> Irdya :doh:
I think that I will for now stick to the name Irda if I wrote that in all my works.

I don't think this is a mistake. Lliwen is the king unit and, in addition, the leading man throughout the story, while Thogru and Alavara are heroic characters who are essential but not the main characters appearing in every scenario. However, it is a bit different with the TDOOO - The Demon of our Ourselves campaign, where there are two king units, because for story reasons, Borin and Avalion are brothers and both lead the expedition, but in fact the main character is Avalion himself so he has a separate inscription in the icon that he cannot die. That's why Lliwen as the leading man has his own separate inscription in the icon that he cannot die and I think it is not a mistake.

Hi,
The unit Troll Shaman is getting redefined, you might need to change the id for your version.
units/orcs/Flamethrower.cfg has a typo that is giving an error. There's a space in the word descript ion=_"crossbow"

Hi, Nice that you Wrote

At the beginning, I ask you to write a signature in the future with the feedback about which campaign you have in mind, you know, for example: TDOOO, DM or MOW. This is a general forum for the whole universe of my work and in this way it is easier for me to understand which campaign it is about.

So I think it's about TDOOO:

So as far as this problem is concerned, it's just a leftover that I haven't gotten rid of yet, nothing serious - solved

Thanks, I didn't notice. A small detail, already fixed in v4.0.0

Hey again, just started this campaign TDoO and reached scenario Lost Son. My impression is:

- The AMLA from heroes looked similiar to campaign Oath of Alliegiance.
- I'm surprised Anriel's portrait that you ported from Elvish Bloodmaiden's line (made by Kwandulin).
PS:

I will correct this typo in the next update but for now I will wait a while for gathering more fixes to upload it.
