Isn't vegetable man bootiful? Warning: this LP will contain spoilers, naturally, though I won't spoil significant plot elements until I reach them, even under spoiler tags. I'll go into it assuming some haven't played, and I'll gloss over some story elements so that those following can understand the context behind the stuff I'm doing in the game and so that those curious could hear my thoughts on the game. If you haven't played this game, I highly recommend that you do, especially if you're a fan of strategy (particularly games like XCOM), WW2 revisionism, or good anime. (It's only $20 on Steam) Also, this game contains scenes of violence committed against unarmed civilians (though no blood), political/racial undertones, and otherwise fairly harrowing depictions of warfare and persecution for a game rated T/Pegi 16. This is balanced out by occasional slice-of-life or otherwise lighthearted moments, but it, by and large, is a game about war. Don't let the silly image above fool you. Dude's actually incapacitated and in need of a medic. Final warning: my posts are all kind of rambling and long-winded. I apologize; I'm trying my best to improve. So yes, for my first LP ever on this site, I decided to do a favorite of mine: Valkyria Chronicles. Except it is now modded, and I won't be using the leaders (Alicia, Largo, and Rosie) at all. The mod is called Gallian Crossfire. It makes a ton of changes to the original gameplay elements, due to the original game honestly being kind of a breeze by strategy game standards. Essentially, it makes the game a shit ton more difficult, sometimes maybe even a little unfair. I'll list all the specific changes under here, but those who haven't played the game might not understand any of this. Be warned, it's a fairly big list. With all these changes, it now really does feel like you're just this ragtag militia from a technologically poor country fighting a military superpower. If you want this mod for yourself, just look for it under VC's "Community Guides" segment of Steam. Or just look it up on Google; if you've found a page on Steam titled "Gallian Crossfire rebalance mod", then you've found the right one. The mod was created by a user named busards.

With the release of VC4, and my desire to play it, I'm reticent to be playing two Valkyria Chronicles games simultaneously. And moreover, I plan to actually LP VC4. So in the end, to save me from a possibly staggering workload and to keep me from getting burned out on this game, I will keep this LP on hold until I've thoroughly finished VC4 (beaten all the main chapters and DLC). I will not end this LP yet, though. I promise that unless something happens to me (life's unexpected, what can I say?), I will ultimately finish this LP all the way through. I'd say at the latest, I'll be starting back up in early January.
So I see that there have been threads like this in the past, but they seem to be more than a month old (some most are considerably older). So at least some people are obviously familiar with it. I played Battle for Wesnoth back in 7-8th grade (-ish), so about 5-6 (?) years ago. I recently decided to get back into it so I would have some online turn-based strategy to play with my friends (and others) here on SF. We (me and various other people) thought it might be cool to start a topic as well, to invite more people to play. Is there any interest among you fine folks? We seem to be using the development release (1.11.x), and since 1.10.x and 1.11.x are incompatible, 1.11.x is probably gonna be what's used. http://www.wesnoth.org/ has downloads and other info. The game is totally free and runs on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X machines.
