Default Re: Arga Dis, Blood and Bronze - NEW VERSION 1.3

Awwww...I really liked the Blood Wind-it wasn't perfect, but it was unique as a Pretender type, and the only Pretender I used with Arga Dis (which I absolutely love), because of that reason.

Any chance you might consider just redoing it, rather than removing Blood Wind?

Arga Dis would be a fun nation to have several different "strange and terrible" Pretender choices, like Blood Wind, because I see it somewhat as a glimpse into a very bloody, barbaric pre-(or atleast formulative)-Olympic Greece that is rarely represented-and the vast Greek Pantheon had some of the godliest monsters and most monstrous gods.

As far as your sickle looking like a crook-well, it is a Greek goat-man, so it doesn't get much more shepherdy than that I suppose

Ah, there's always a little bug or two creeps in.

I'll upload a fixed version at the main post momentarily.

I've basically discovered I don't like doing new pretenders. They never seem to work out well for me. I might come back and do a bigass Gilgan in the future, but for now they'll have to make do with the current pretender selection.

Is there an easy way to switch between two versions of a mod on the same PC? I'd like to check this out, but am currently playing a MP game with Arga Dis, and since it's close to finished I don't want to force my opponents through the hassle of having to update their mods just to suit me.

Edit: The satyr sprites look absolutely frigging awesome by the way.

You can just rename the .dm from Arga Dis.dm to Arga Dis New.dm or something.

Then when you enable the mod make sure you enable the new one. Though it might be a little tricky to tell the new and old versions apart to be honest.

I can understand not enjoying a certain aspect of the game, Sombre, and if creating new Pretenders is yours, that's perfectly reasonable. I will say though that you've always done a great job with anything you've lent your hand to, modwise, Pretenders included.

My first post to say I love this nation. A few ideas:
- Sparta had two kings, one warring, one staying home: another (immobile) hero -the sovereign king- would be nice.
- Hesiod in theogony writes about three Hekatoncheires being appointed by Zeus as guardians for Tartarus. Having a multi handed, horrid blood titan could be cool

If we're saying ideas now, I've got one that I thought would be sort of cool, cerberuses (or however you pluralize that). Since Cerberus doesn't show up in any other capacity, it'd be pretty sweet and in my opinion super thematic to have three headed war dogs for this nation. They can work as either a low level blood summon if you just want straight up dogs, higher level if you want them to kick tons of *** or breathe fire or some crazy crap, or recruitables because hey, there's nothing magic about them, they're just some jacked up dogs that hung out near the gilgans for too long just like the mares.

War dogs are awesome even before they're terrifying and mutated, and Arga Dis feels like the sort of nation that'd use something like that, in my opinion. Also definately +1 to Hekatoncheires.

This has been my session of yelling "Ooh ooh do this" at someone else's project.

Dang, I missed this update. I've always been meaning to check this nation out again after my sorry attempt long ago. It really has a unique feel to it, and the graphics are superb.

Yeah, dammit!

Oh and it's not Sparta, it's really, really not.
