    I'm back. :)

    Lightfang talked about it, I'd actually want to do it. As such, I'm starting one now. People may sign up to go on the name list that will be posted just in a little while.

    The NES

    If anyone've ever tried Battle for Wesnoth, they know what this is all about; but it's a turn-based strategy game, which I happen to like. The NES will be run much like Lucky's DwarfNES; although this isn't as "build-your-own-base"y, it's more "defeat-the-opponent-in-an-epic-war"y. As such, the game will have an end, and its purpose will be kinda known beforehand. No city construction. Only killz. I'm sorry about that. :p

    Just join, you can name whatever class you'd prefer to play as, and I'll find something similar, then put you in that line. When you drop in, I'll tell tales about what happens to your puny earthly body during the war. :devil:

    The Setting

    The free people of Nesia are of the finest, most excellent-minded, and most joyful of all. But alas! A dark carpet is being cast upon the lands; shadows from the death kingdoms' lands are crawling into the realm of the true and good. We must defend our peaceful homeland against invaders! Lord Joakim, handsome general and inspiring leader of the Nessians, has settled his warriors in the stronghold of Nesse. He has established a base camp and is scouting the nearby lands for whatever enemies might appear. Nesia unto glory and eternity!

    Really doesn't bother me it is random. Might change the direction I take if I get to level though since I like some of the female or male models better on different promotions.

    @foolish icarus; See, that is problematic. :p I think you will become a Bowman too, though; or you can be a Merfolk? :p

    Are you doing a random battle or a scenario of some sort?

    PS - If my mage dies just keep brining me back as a mage, I will rename as needed.

    Is the garrison going to be player controlled only? Or will there be NPC allies.

    I'm doing a random map. :)

    (And yes, that's what I intended people to do if - when - they died.)
