Build up a great army, gradually turning raw recruits into hardened veterans. In later games, recall your toughest warriors and form a deadly host against whom none can stand! Choose units from a large pool of specialists, and hand-pick a force with the right strengths to fight well on different terrains against all manner of opposition.

Wesnoth has many different sagas waiting to be played out. Fight to regain the throne of Wesnoth, of which you are the legitimate heir… step into the boots of a young officer sent to guard a not-so-sleepy frontier outpost… vanquish a horde of undead warriors unleashed by a foul necromancer, who also happens to have taken your brother hostage… guide a band of elvish survivors in an epic quest to find a new home.

200+ unit types. 16 races. 6 major factions. Hundreds of years of history. The world of Wesnoth is absolutely huge and limited only by your creativity – make your own custom units, compose your own maps, and write your own scenarios or even full-blown campaigns. You can also challenge up to 8 friends – or strangers – and fight in epic multi-player fantasy battles.

    i love how this game is open for contribution.
    u can make ur own maps, campaign, and this game still has many ‘official unit’ without pictures that most people can start contributing. also, they accept many units from custom maps that they find very good.

    ps. idk why, but i guess its because i play fire emblem often, the style of hex game where strategy is keeping the front line really makes the game hard for me 😀

    (RPG feature in this game is minor. its just luck of turning the battle to ur side slightly, not ‘we got marine who just became master chief! lets pwn those aliens!’)

    so yea, this game has TONS of stuff based on luck (in random map, ur location. attack/defense is lucks also, specially counter death (where ur unit can survive a enemy turn, but died because it killed enemy unit, thus another enemy unit was able to attack)
    but i find those lucks of attack, defense, traits are minor, tho they do huge effect, (resilient + strength compared to quick and intelligent is huge HP difference) stratagy can overcome everything. (like one campaign where u have to fight enemy lvl2s with ur lvl 0 for like half of your campaign.)
