Thanks you all for your encouragements and your advices.

I have to finish the graphics of Cantabira's heroes (only one is currently done) and to mod them, plus one or two summons, and the mod will be read to be released ! I've added the new sprites on the general graphic view.

This looks great! I will definetly try it out. Love the summons. Needs a god though. When I can think better I might be able to make specific suggestions (medical reasons, resolved soon hopefully).

As for balance, let me put in my (didnt we expect this) comment.
If you want to, feel free to go unbalanced and shoot for a good AI nation. I would have just as much fun coming up against this nation as I would have playing it. Maybe even more so if it was designed to be effective as an AI. Just a thought.

A few new things in Cantabira:

- New summon (First ones, sorts of neandertals).
- three new heroes (Eldest of Elders, Forever king and Undying).
- some corrections of typos in descriptions.
- two new pretenders.


Sorry for having been so long, and don't worry if Cantabira take a bit of time before being released, but I'm currently... hmm sort of modding something else. It's called "My Couple LA", and it takes place in Late Era, you know, this age when all things are going on the road to ruin & all that was once great, strong & beautiful is becoming sad remnants of a former glory...

Well, I still don't know, but it may (or may not) lead me to mod something I should call "My Divorce EA", with the utmost dreadful and unspeakable Doom Horror known as the Attorney ... Hope not, we'll see (and if somebody has the fortune teller ability, please I have bad events to prevent ).

Yum, yum...

At least, today was not a real bad day...

Yesterday, my morale was lower than that of a frightened militia with the battle fright affliction in an hostile dominion (an it is LOW indeed)!

That sucks, Nounours--as a person who's been through quite a run of failed relationships in my past, you definitely have my sympathies.

As far as the graphics go, you do beautiful work-some of the very best I've seen, actually, especially considering that you haven't been making mods very long.

I was wondering if that big T-Rex skeleton *was* infact supposed to be a Pretender chassis? I don't see information on him, otherwise...

Other than that, I'd like to suggest a Pretender chassis that I was/am going to use for Cimmeria: The "Bear-Skull Totem". It's basically just a big mound of paleolithic Cave-bear skulls, representing the very early (hypothetized, anyway) worship of cave bear bones by Neanderthals. I haven't done the graphics on it yet, or really defined it entirely, but, broadly, it will be a fragile, immobile unit, that's relatively easy to physically destroy (much easier than a Sphinx or a Monolith), but that protects itself by summoning, in combat, the spirits of cave bears.

Bear Skull Totem
Hp. 20iz. 4 Str. 2 Att. 12 Def. 8 Prot. 8 (8)
Mor. 30 MR. 18 Mv. Immobile Prec. 12 Weapons: None
Armour: None. Fear (0)
Earth 1, Nature 1, Death 1. 125 for new paths. Cost: 200. Dom. 2.
Produces: Bear Spirit (combat only).
Hp. 44 Siz. 4 Str 24 Att. 14 Def. 9 Prot. 0 (0) Mor. 30 MR. 9 Mv. 14/2 Prec. 5. Weapons: Claw. Berserk (6) Cold Res. 75%. Darkvision (50). Magic Being. Etherial. Animal.

A skeletal titan-chassis with a human/giant body and a mammoth skull head might be fun too.

Yea relationship can suck big time. But on a happier note I love the way this mod is looking!! keep it up. I have an idea if it helps. Maybe you could make a raptor the summon skeleton and the t-rex skeleton a pretender.

In fact, the T-Rex is a summon. I'va planned a raptor version of the summon, but the sprite sucks, so...

As for the pretenders, they will be more "bronze-age" like than prehistorical... They will be gods of growth and fertility, this kind of stuff. I have also planned a Divine King, it's to say a sacrificed former Sacred King... I also have a fire pretender, a sort of huge fire spirit or elemental... Hope you will see them soon !
