This list covers add-ons for the latest (1.14) release of Wesnoth. There are archived versions of this page for [[Guide_to_UMC_Content/1.10|1.10]] and [[Guide_to_UMC_Content/1.12|1.12]].
 +
 +
For content creators who loved an add-on that hasn't been added to 1.14 yet, and are wondering about taking it over, please ensure that its entry on the older (1.12 or 1.10) wiki page is up to date, add a link to the add-on's feedback thread in the forums, and generally do the tidy-up that doesn't need you to start changing the campaign, and then ask the old maintainer. (You should probably also wait until the end of May 2018 before assuming that a maintainer isn't already porting to 1.14).

If you are looking for even more campaigns, please see the links in at the bottom of this page.

Not all of these are ordinary students; many have been experimenting with other forms of magic, while others are simply overachievers in some area of study.

I develop the campaign with the wesnoth development version and I advise to play with that, but it is intended to work almost equally well with the stable wesnoth version (except for features only available in the wesnoth development version).

==== Era of Four Moons ====
 
 
An era based of the cultures in fictional world Ialfa. There are a core set of four which have had the blunt of the balancing effort put into them, and an additional four which represent other parts of the world and are not complete or balanced.
 
 
'''Author:''' Velensk
 
 
'''Status:'''
 
 
'''Faction Descriptions:''' The four core factions are:
 
 
-The Highlanders (Chaotic/Neutral): A nomadic people living along the savanna and steppes. Units generally have high hp and low resistances and good movement and defense in the hills. Features cheap mobile infantry and recruitable level 2 Elephants that act as a living battering ram.
 
 
-The Imperialists (Lawful): A massive oligarchy centered around an emperor and his house. Most units do well in the open and not well in forests. Can create durable positions and hold open ground exceptionally well but most units do not inflict a lot of damage. Features units with 50% defense in the open and suicidal units.
 
 
-The Sea States (Lawful/Neutral): A collation of small mercantile city states. Can field a variety of versatile units with no exceptional strengths or weaknesses.
 
 
-The Darklanders (Chaotic): A society of tribal Jungle people. Units generally have low hitpoints but good defense and movement in forests. Features very efficient melee power and access to both slows and berserk.
 
 
The other factions are:
 
 
-The Dalefolk (Neutral): A cluster of rural settlements known for it's magicians and inventors: Most units do exceptionally well in mountains. Features some good defensive units, the shapeshifter (who changes form depending on terrain), and a powerful melee magician.
 
 
-The Pygmies (Liminal): A strange race of tiny jungle dwellers shrouded in mystery: Most units do very well in forests and swamps and are very dodgy at the cost of experience points. Also, most units will heal themselves slightly over time. Feature effective mobile level 0s and many powerful support units.
 
 
-The Whites (Chaotic/Neutral): Barbarians from another continent: Units are generally mobile and high on hp but have low defenses when not in rough terrain. Feature powerful magicians and a steadfast berserker.
 
 
-The Freemen (Lawful): A society of desert dwellers split between the city dwellers and the nomads. Units tend to be durable and adept in deserts and hills and not as good in forests. Features units with stun and recruitable level 2 rocs.

Latest revision as of 13:55, 13 July 2019

This is a guide to the current user-made content for players. It provides unfamiliar players with detailed information about campaigns (including story, completion, difficulty and playing style) as well as detailed information about eras. Feel free to edit this guide, it is a wiki.

This list covers add-ons for the latest (1.14) release of Wesnoth. There are archived versions of this page for 1.10 and 1.12.

For content creators who loved an add-on that hasn't been added to 1.14 yet, and are wondering about taking it over, please ensure that its entry on the older (1.12 or 1.10) wiki page is up to date, add a link to the add-on's feedback thread in the forums, and generally do the tidy-up that doesn't need you to start changing the campaign, and then ask the old maintainer. (You should probably also wait until the end of May 2018 before assuming that a maintainer isn't already porting to 1.14).

If you are looking for even more campaigns, please see the links in at the bottom of this page.

Instructions

When adding a campaign to the list, please place it in its alphabetically sorted location, ignoring any initial article ("A", "An", or "The").

Blueprint for Campaigns

  • Description:
  • Author:
  • Maintainer: if not maintained by the author anymore.
  • Status:
    • Broken = Does not work at all

    • WIP = Partially written, some progress
    • Complete = Completely written, but buggy as well as potential balance issues.
    • Finished = Completely written, minimal to no bugs, slight balance issues possible.
  • Version campaign version on the add-ons server
  • Length:
  • Requirements: (only if needed)
  • Difficulty:

Please note: Often campaigns introducing new mechanics are listed as expert level on the add-on server, here difficulty means the raw difficulty after the mechanics are understood.

    • Unbalanced = If you can't beat the hard mode, it isn't necessarily unbalanced, but if the difficulty changes erratically from one scenario to the next and only people using the debug mode have seen the final, then it is.
    • Easy
    • Normal
    • Hard

Please note: If you didn't play the campaign, write the difficulty written on the add-ons server.

  • Style:

Please note: Many campaigns will feature more than one style. Please list the most significant ones. If you don't know which style is the campaign you are listing, don't write this.

    • Skirmish = small to medium sized armies, your standard Wesnoth gameplay
    • Dungeon = long and narrow tunnels (not every underground scenario is a dungeon, a dungeon isn't necessarily underground)
    • RPG = role playing game elements such as talking with non-player-characters, item collection, dependency on a party of very few adventurers without or limited recruits
    • Survival = being exposed to changing, spawning enemies while remaining on the same map
    • Large Battle = large number of units on the battlefield, sizely maps
    • Simulation = campaigns feat. terrain modification, alternative resources
    • Boss battle = the challenge is to defeat a single powerful enemy unit
    • Minigames = there are puzzles and minigames in the campaign that significantly differ from standard Wesnoth gameplay
  • Faction/Era: Era for the whole campaign and more specifically the faction or unit composition you field.
  • Custom units: Link to the unit tree for cases that don't feel sufficiently described by Faction / Era entry.

The Black Cross of Aleron

A elvish school for druids comes under attack by goblins. It seems more than just a routine raid; is there something more sinister behind this attack? - In Beseiged Druids, you control Eärendil, the surviving teacher at the school, and the many and varied initiates. Not all of these are ordinary students; many have been experimenting with other forms of magic, while others are simply overachievers in some area of study. Unfortunately, they are not especially good at combat, at least initially. Together with a very small contingent of surviving guards, it is up to these students to save the island of Aleron from disaster.

Legend of the Invincibles

Part I: Shrouded in Darkness (5 chapters, 90 scenarios) - A pair of heroes, after stopping an orcish threat, are outcast into caves, where they have no other choice than to become liches in order to survive. They preserved their original appearance and moral principles, and fight in various skirmishes against evil (although using evil methods sometimes), until the Fall, when they are buried alive under the ashes of the third sun.

Part II: Into the Light (5 chapters, 110 scenarios) - Long after the Fall, the lich heroes awaken. Searching for more power, they manage to resurrect themselves as living beings, but this time more powerful and ridden of the evil within. But the evil from inside them did not cease to exist, and started a campaign to conquer the world. Stopping the campaign caused an even worse disaster...

Players’ Review(s)

Note: The most unique feature of this campaign is its RPG-like unit development system, enemies drop items units can use, leaders are stronger than most usual units and all units get AMLA (after maximum level advancement) after reaching their maximum level (that is also increased by a load of additional level 4 units).


The North Wind

Wesnoth's army was occupied fighting Mal Ravanal in the East, but there were whisperings of an orcish attack in the north. Konrad II must send Deoran, now an experienced rider and commander, with a small band of knights to hold off the orcs....

This campaign features unique gameplay characteristics such as a lack of recruiting and a 24-turn time-of-day cycle.

Secrets of the Ancients

From the Journal of Ardonna of Tarrynth:

It's unfair that we humans must die after so few years. Though this is the natural order, we need not embrace it! The lords on the Green Isle knew how to live forever. Pursuit of that knowledge was declared illegal by King Haldric I, but I believe it is worth the risk: If I can rediscover the secrets of the ancients, not only will I cheat death, I will become a hero to the whole continent!

Faction Descriptions:

Sky Kingdom - powerful magi of all kinds. Their knowledge allows them to cast amazing spells and summon creatures like unstopable Golems or mysterious Mus. Masters of Elements and Gurus are one of the most powerful human beings in the Era.

Al-Kamija - these proud people are good warriors and spell casters of the desert. They use magical circles and scrolls to summon amazing creatures like Jinns or elementals from other dimension called Abyss. These creatures can't be poisoned, which is a great advantage. (The campaign "To Lands Unknown" is mainly about the story of this faction)

Tharis - fearsome Tharis faction is very dangerous especially at night. Cruel people of Tharis with their black magic and dreadful monsters like Hydra can demolish everything standing on their way. Being so powerful in attack, Tharis have no healer, so they need to push forward at all costs.

Kharos - this strange name is the name of a beautiful country ruled by prophets of light. These peaceful people are masters of defense and support. Their formations of healers and Shielders assisted by Silver Warriors, who can teleport between friendly villages, are very hard to destroy.

Barbarians - the best in hand-to-hand combat. This multi-cultural society divided into Goblins, Orcs, Cyclops and Trolls with their own advantages and disadvantages can be hard opponent, but separately they are very weak.

Runemasters - these Dwarves use runic magic and equipment and are well known of their protection against magic. The Runemasters create steam machines like Gyrocopters, Robots and even mighty Mechanical Dragons. Units from this faction are very resistant but slow.

Dark Blood Alliance - this faction is composed of agile lizards, giant frogs, wyverns swallowing enemies and salamanders, which have developed to perfection the art of disguise. At the head of the community stand shamans known for their water magic, which is used in the fight as well as in healing.

Destroyers - a terrifying undead creations consisting of civilizations long gone...

Imperial Era (IE)

Description: One of the oldest maintained user eras, the Imperial Era brings together seven different factions in a completely re-imagined setting, the world of Orbivm, a very lethal world indeed. The era contains both mainline and development versions of each faction and can be used to play five campaigns, each featuring a different race.

Faction Descriptions:

  1. Lavinian Legion - Based on the Roman Legion, the Lavinians have strong, versatile melee units in the legionaries and a range of support classes sourced from amongst the Lavinian population and various subjugated races. The legion are strong in the plains but weak when fighting in forested areas. The Lavinians are featured in "Fall of Silvium".
  2. Sidhe - The Sidhe are a group of forest-dwelling elves whose focus is stealth and fleet movement. Their mages are able to channel the lightning itself, and their various other units move almost as fast. The Sidhe feature in "Tale of Vaniyera".
  3. Marauders - Based on the Germanic peoples that eventually conquered Rome (hint, hint), the Marauders are equally as at home in the hills, forests and swamps of their homeland. Their hard-hitting melee units are practicalyl unstoppable during the night-time. The Marauders are the stars of the "Alfhelm the Wise" campaign.
  4. Orcei Gentorum - The orcs have been captured gladiators slaving away in the Lavinian arenas for generations.The life of an orc in Orbivm is harsh and brutal, just like the orcs themselves. The tale of the uprising of one such group of Orcs is told in "Up from Slavery".
  5. Cavernei - The Cavernei are a dwarvish race with similarities to the mainline Knalgans, but with a greater emphasis on the military uses of runesmithing. They get a campaign too, in "Gali's Contract"
  6. Issaelfr - The frost elves live on the fringes of the habitable lands of Evrosia, the main continent of Orbivm, and have become inured to difficult conditions and tuned in to their Fae natures. They don't have a campaign yet, but you could always write one.
  7. Arendians - The Arendians are horse-lords living on the Western steppes of Evrosia. A life of constant battle has developed a military-focused society where warriors are trained from a young age. They used to have a campaign, but it fell into disrepair a very long time ago.
