Hi, I'm SigurdFireDragon.
I started playing Battle for Wesnoth on December 17th, 2010. Shortly thereafter, I started making some add-ons for it.
I found Battle for Wesnoth after looking for a game that was close enough to my favorite comic, Erfworld. A few posts on their forum mentioned this game, and here I am.
Windows 7 x64 Compiling Master & 1.12 Branch using MinGW / Scons
Add-ons I've written:
Random Campaign - Play a random campaign with factions from the era of your choice.
Custom Campaign - Play MP scenarios, using an army of your design that persists between battles.
Ultimate Random Maps - Many different random map generators.
Era of Legends - AoH, one step higher. Recruit level 3 units, and lead with a level 4.
