Adonibal Barca Threads / > ADONIBAL: Read for a bit
« on: August 22, 2017, 11:26:21 PM »
You head under a nearby PALM TREE, and READ part of Exilian: A History. You read about the great religions of Exilian's past, including PRE-SCHISM BUNNYISM, REFORMED BUNNYISM, ORTHODOX BUNNYISM, and of course SUPREME LORD KRISHNA whose robotic acolytes claimed to supersede all the BUNNYISMS and offer SUPREME PEACE. Whilst SUPREME PEACE sounds good, you're not sure to what extent it was really a replacement for Lord Bunneh's offerings of CARROTS or LETTUCE. You consider offering up a prayer for your current predicament, lost on a strange and deserted SHORE, but it's hard to decide which deity or deity-variant to worship, and so you may as well go do something more practical for now at least.

What will that be?

You head under a nearby PALM TREE, and READ part of Exilian: A History. You discover the ancient tales of the EARLY REPUBLIC and its EXILE, and the foundation of the DEMOCRACY OF EXILIAN. As a pangolin, you approve of DEMOCRACY, as long as it isn't too noisy and you still have somewhere to CURL UP IN A BALL afterwards. You find that the next chapter is on the CONSTITUTIONAL DEVELOPMENT of Exilian, and realise that as you are not a specialist in CONSTITUTIONAL LAW or ROMAN LAW you may need to do something else for a bit.

Will you...

You head under a nearby PALM TREE, and READ part of Exilian: A History. You come across the early ancient tales of Wibulnubniblia, and the Wibulnib peoples who came down from the HILLS with their tools of CHEAP CIDER and DUBIOUSLY WRITTEN SIGNPOSTS in order to wage WAR. You wonder how things in the world could have been different had the WIBULNIBS prevailed. You suspect it might have involved more cider and less prescriptive grammar rules, but you're not actually sure.

Narnia Total War / Re: Back Through The Wardrobe?
« on: August 22, 2017, 11:03:08 PM »
Now done:
  • Every faction has a general model
  • All stratmap army models sorted
  • All UI cards complete
  • Rebel groups ingame & all towns have starting garrisons
  • Trade system fully worked out
  • 4 new units added; 3 narnian, 1 marauder
  • All new buildings now have proper interface cards
  • New loading screens!


Still possible:
  • Maybe some more units
  • Stratmap models for assassins, diplomats, and spies possibly
  • More building tweaks and maybe edits to traits/ancillaries etc? I've never really liked trait/ancillary editing but it might be worth doing.

Did you ever play any of the old "tales of middle earth" variants? I never got far with them, they're insanely difficult roguelikes, but I'd keep making kobold characters to see how fast they died, and ended up making two differently named "clans" because their histories started getting stored in the game's archives so I'd treat each run as the next generation trying to compete with the other clan to see which clan's characters lasted longest before death and got most glory in the ingame archive :P

I do like the seasonal stuff btw, good job :)

Bigosaur / Re: Son of a Witch: Castle Crashers meets Isaac
« on: August 22, 2017, 10:56:32 PM »
That sounds a good one :) And another forest minigame would be great! Less sure about whether the new avarice variant will be balanced - doubling your current gold could be a pretty OP one-shot ability in some games if you have the retort and can make a few plus a dragonfire potion to use it with. If it doubles every time and you got 4 potions, you could go from say 1000 gold (achievable by sometime in level 3) to 16000 by which point money is no object. Certainly you may want to make the extra money not count for extra in points, or it'll become broken for the daily challenges.

One request though wrt the "subplot quests" - have the characters reappear at some point! It feels weird that you only get to play the quest until you complete it and never find that subplot again. Like the woman you have to transport to the castle could sometimes optionally turn up in the castle tavern if that appears or something?

Thanks, those are nice :) Have you considered leather textures as an area to add? That's one of the commoner ones I can imagine using that isn't there atm.

Adonibal Barca Threads / > MOONSHINE: Go east
« on: August 21, 2017, 11:47:53 PM »
You and your sailors head EAST, where the ground rises on either side into a rock-sided VALLEY. The slope to the north is a little less steep and you may be able to scramble OVER it, whereas that to the south is a flat, tall cliff face.

Where will you and your brave SAILORS go next, O Great Leader?

You and your PORTUGESE SAILORS scramble northwards over the rocks and out of the valley; on the other side, the hill slopes down to the sea, and continues along a ridge to a headland some way west. West - yes, that west where your ship is. You could RETURN TO CAMP from here. What will you do?

What now?

You return to the headland, with all your SAILORS still with you and still alive but having ultimately made little real progress at all. You could report back to ADONIBAL now so he can reconsider plans, or you could SET OFF again back into the interior.

What now?

Awesome, either of those ideas sound like they'd be great! :) I could drop you an email sometime to discuss it? Possibly later this week, I'm hoping to spend next weekend doing a lot of work on getting the articles section ready to run.

Adonibal Barca Threads / > ADONIBAL: Reconsider Plans
« on: August 21, 2017, 11:30:33 PM »
You sit on the headland overlooking your SHIP, and rack your brains, your previous ideas having not come to fruition in any way. How on earth will you manage to scout the island's interior successfully? What treasure or danger might lie within? Will it blend? These questions may keep you up for days to come, but you may not have days - it is time to reconsider your PLANS, dear PANGOLIN. Or possibly that should be... PLANGOLIN.

*Editor's note: at this point the fictitious interlocutive narrator of this story threw down her script in disgust and threatened to quit at the poor quality of puns on offer. We told her we punderstood her issues and have increased her job benefits to include FREE MINT TEABAGS and a PERSONAL ECHIDNA.*

Anyway, where were we? Planning! There's planning to do! Reconsider your plans, ADONIBAL BARCA, and do it fast!

Adonibal Barca Threads / > ADONIBAL: Send MOONSHINE ARGENT
« on: August 21, 2017, 11:24:15 PM »
You consider sending MOONSHINE ARGENT with a group of sailors. The dog-like creature has been a loyal companion to you for some years, not too bright but good at finding a scent and always loyal to a fault. You can send six of your PORTUGESE SAILORS with him. He is carrying a small PICKAROON as a weapon, and also has some MINT TEABAGS and a KETTLE in his inventory.

You are MOONSHINE ARGENT, a WEREWOLF and loyal crewmember of ADONIBAL BARCA. You bid farewell to your CAPTAIN and fellow CREW MEMBERS, and lead your team of six PORTUGESE SAILORS away from the BEACH and into the INTERIOR of this strange land.

You come to a large BOULDER, with animal-trodden trackways heading in various directions. Which path will you go down?

Adonibal Barca Threads / > MOONSHINE: Go south***
« on: August 21, 2017, 11:21:52 PM »
You head SOUTH, and come across a large sleeping beast. It appears to be a rare GREATER JERBOA such as are sometimes found in these strange parts. It is blocking the entrance to a CAVE. How will you deal with this menace?
