I thought the crossbow would work the same way as the bow and arrow, as you mentioned, but never once did I ever ‘shoot first’ like you do with the bow. Instead in the fights I got into, it seems the crossbow (which is marked as an off-hand weapon?) just adds to your crit cahnce/damage, so when I got the main gauche, which adds to your attack…[Read more]
Played some STWALT today as I was hunting for game sprites and as always it’s still very fun. Playing has me thinking that I kind of wish characters might start with ‘class’ specific items like one might in LW as starting out empty handed feels… not smart? Anyway, I digress. This is the hall of losers and I have two more to add to the ranks (of…[Read more]
Yes the very first attack against the hag, despite having both tower guards training, a high-ish level and the legendary blade somehow still resulted in a failed attack that left me frogged up and with no means of attack (talk about urb). Could otherwise have achieved a level 5 hobbit, even if I never found the One Ring. Most bizarre of all was…[Read more]
After playing a little IRL DnD with some friends, I thought I might show them STWALT. They weren’t too impressed by the graphics, but seemed to enjoy watching me play and some of the ridiculous things that can occur. Here’s the adventure I had (2nd attempt after the first ended in about a minute XD)
– Day 0, RickBot is starting his adventures.
If your rangers get into lots of firefights and kill lots of enemies, you’ll rank them up fairly quickly. It’s a risky way to rank up for sure, but among the more efficient ways if you aren’t concerned with heat or possibly losing men.
I like your idea of being able to trade away your higher rank soldiers to other units for EXP or merit gain.…[Read more]

A cuirass would provide great protection to all but musket fire and pistols at close range, but would be heavy and cumbersome as you mentioned, Maharbal. Expensive too I bet. Leather armor pieces and wood armor from the native tribes would likely be candidates for a woodsman in need of some physical protection while out in the wilds.
If the troops involved in your push are supposed to be ‘volunteers’ from other parts of the division, I like the idea of starting off with a random assortment of guys, who could even have random ranks as well with enough ribbons or rank under your belt. It would be interesting if some profile ranks also included the opportunity to either re-roll a…[Read more]
I first joined the MnB community years ago while seeking to see if MnB would ever be developed for mobile (still waiting XD) and from then on I became deeply engrossed in the awesome games and even more awesome community that grew around them.
Here’s hoping to many more years of enjoyable interactions with y’all and maybe one day MnB will be on…[Read more]
I think I remember your username for sure. Glad to have you back!
Welcome back, friend! I think you’ll find the old place as welcoming as always!
Your wish is granted. There is now every class of German soldier under the sun standing between you and your objective. Best get to it, soldier!
I wish laser eye surgery was cheaper, so I could actually get it in the near future.
It’s good to hear that LW is always somewhere in his mind/heart. The original remains one of my favorite games, more so than even the MnB series. Urb’s dev cycle certainly requires a lot of patience from us, but I think it’s always worth it because every new tidbit or game is a welcome surprise.
Did he mention at all if he felt he had made a…[Read more]
Here, here! We’ll make you proud boss. You make it, we play it!
I was waiting for something like this.
Guess my main two questions would be 1) What’s the progress on Statecraft so far? & 2) What seems to be the direction urb wants to take in the future in relation to his games? Still intent on moving to Steam? More smaller projects to polish his LUA/Flash skills?
A little loaded, but hopefully you can…[Read more]
Slowly the inner circle gathers! What secrets do they hold?
To any outsider, this would look like just two dudes having a beer and making faces. To us, it’s a high level meeting of perhaps two of the most senior members of our forums. Nice to be in on the secret, eh?
Hopefully, here’s to another Mud-Con next year, where you guys won’t have to put up with drinking Kölsch XD
