Default New Nation : Cantabira, Land of Standing Stones

A new EA nation, mainly inspired by Stonehenge and megalithic monuments.
Cantabira is a late-Palaeolithic/early-Bronze Age nation, with powerful mages and priests, but military quite underequipped. The nation have good summons and good sacred.



Cantabira:

Early Era



Strengths:
- Good mages
- Good national spells
- Good variety of national summons, including many animals
- Strong and varied sacred
- Heavy (but expensive !) wooly rhinoceros trampling cavalry


Weaknesses:
- Many cheap but weak troops.
- Bad equipment, some troops even have protection 0!
- Lack of archers and cavalry, except for rhino mounted cavalry (powerful but costly)
- Many good commanders are Cap only, limiting access to some magic paths and making some recruitment choices a bit more difficult.
- Sacred are good, but several are Cap only.

Cantabira currently uses unit slots 2400 - 2450,nation slot 86, magic site slots 840-842, weapon slots 920-922, armor slot 260.

Starting Units:

20 Cantabiran Slingers; 20 Cantabiran Spearmen; Clan Chief; Cantabiran Scout.

Starting Sites:

- Great Circle of Stones. Astral 2, Earth 3. Allows recruitment of Sacred King, Elder of Stones.
- Burial Mounds of Kings. Death 1. Allows recruitment of Mound Priest.
- Stone Circle of the Sun. Allows recruitment of Bride of the Sun.

Well, everybody, I'm waiting for your advices.

Do you think it is balanced or not ?

Do you think Blood Maiden should be Cap only ? I hesitated about that.

Do you think the prices are OK ?


I will add national spells once they're completely done.

Default Re: New Nation : Cantabira, Land of Standing Stones

I find it very hard to judge balance in this format. It would be better to complete the graphics and release the mod, and then hone balance afterwards.

It sounds like a fun idea anyway, I'd encourage you to go ahead with it.

Yes this one sounds good and I agree with llama in regards to the balance.

The best way to get balance suggestions is to release a mod, with a graphical preview, maybe get a multiplayer game or two set up with it. The feedback will then come and be more than cursory.

I added a general view of graphics.

I have to finish the sprites of two sacred (Scarred One & Blood Maiden), of summonable undead units, heroes and one more summonable (it will probably be called Earthborn). Plus possibly one or two other summons, I'm not sure.

I hope you'll enjoy the sprites !!

Very, very nice. I promised I'd try out your tibetan mod and I will right now.

But yes, excellent sprites. They fit very well in the dom3 world.

Btw I notice you used the Ogre Kingdoms rhinox sprite as a base for your woolly rhino - please feel free to use any of my sprites in any way that will help you or speed things up for you.

-two thumbs up-

Sombre, thanks, your Ogre Kingdom mod is great.
In fact, I used the Rhinox outline, another attempt I had already made and a wooly rhino drawing I found... but the Rhinox saved me a lot of time !
