Things to do

Recommended Posts

In the absence of Marcus and Aeleron, I'll take over for a few minutes (*insert manic laugh*) and try and get something done in their absence. Lists of things we need to get done

1. List of cool quotes (M2TW Loading Screen quotes)

2. Some cool loading screens for M2TW with a Westeros origin. If you can find more of Amok's art or are yourself a graphics artist, please donate some pics :P

So, yeah, the deal is, right now, post some good quotes that you feel capture the feeling of Westeros. And the quotee (sp?). Whatever. Just post some cool quotes. Thanks. And some wallpapers / loading screens or whatever you can design...

Quotes, taken from AWoIaF:

Rhaegar fought valiantly, Rhaegar fought nobly, Rhaegar fought honorably. And Rhaegar died. - Ser Jorah Mormont

Never forget who you are, for surely the world won’t. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armor yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you. - Tyrion Lannister

There are no men like me. There's only me. - Jaime Lannister

What is dead may never die, but rises again, harder and stronger. - The Priests of the Drowned God

When the snows fall and the white winds blow, the lone wolf dies but the pack survives. - Ned Stark

When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die. There is no middle ground. - Cersei Lannister

All of the words of the Great Houses should be used for quotes: They provide a useful insight into the factions.

There were several ASOIF quote packs floating around IIRC, and Marcus had compiled some in the version he sent me. But I guess new ones are always welcome.

I put together a list of quotes, conveniently packaged into a text file for the game. I tried to pull as many that were applicable to battles, as befits the game, but that didn't stop a few forays into whimsy. Warning: it's long.

"Those are brave men. Let's go kill them."

I've been sitting back silently hoping and praying to the Old Gods, the New, and Rh'llor, that this mod would come to fruition. I've even been sacrificing a few to the Others as a hedge ;).

Pleaseee don't let this die. If nothing else, release an "ASOIAF Lite" containing the work so far.

Let me know if I can do anything to help.

Well, for starters, as I think Aeleron and Marcus are very busy IRL, we'll have to wait. If it's possible, try to learn some modding skills over at twcenter.net . Something else you could do is photoshop a few pics to make loading screens for Westeros TW.

Hmm...

Here's another one from The Hedge Knight:

"Oak and iron guard me well, or else I'm dead and doomed to hell."

- Andal proverb

I purchased and read the graphic novel version of The Hedge Knight a couple of days ago. I'm going to go over to the TWCenter and see if I can't make some loading screens myself. Do we have like, a link to the font for Westeros: Total War?

I don't know the first thing about modding, but man I can't wait for this one to be done. I'd LOVE to play this game.

Post them all up somewhere on photobucket or something. Even if this mod dies in hibernation, we can still use it for a mod in the future. Empire perhaps? I don't know. Just post them up and give the link please.

I'm not really part of the mod team. I'm just trying to collect stuff they can use during the interim. Thanks for uploading the stuff. If you want to keep on doing it, sure, go ahead, but without Marcus and Aeleron, we don't really have much... :(

How hard is modding for Med2Total War? I just got the game, and like it, but from what I've read modding seems extremely complicated.
