A Little present from a french fan of your game

I might not be the best code-writer around, nor am I the best designer, but since I really enjoy your game and I had time to spare, I prepared a little something that i'll let anybody as motivated as me to better, firther, even redesign...

there you go: http://mauvais.troubadours.free.fr/

Thanks

I just updated it by correcting a few typos here & then, and proposed 3 original scenarios in the Original category. I'll wait for feedback on them, maybe even correct my english that could be faulty enough (a real english person could make a correction of them)

I also expect people to give me something to feed the original part of the generator, so please give me scenario ideas, i'll put other of my own as time goes by.

I'll start working on the random generator next, it's gonna be a bigger task, obviously.

I'll finally try to further this project by attempting to add a warband manager and why not, a league management  tool, but i'll definitely need some help if people have some time.

But we already have a small generator now

Good job on making this quite usefull thing.
On the part of the original scenarios that you provided: Joushou and Kaitaku looks balanced enough, though Joushou may benefit from variable turns instead of fixed (so that Infulencing something on the very last turn could backfire more easly that way hehe ).

Gyakusatsu looks kinda unbalanced though as warbands with the most speed (meaning Tengu and Ito) will most likely take the first point for entering the zone while Cult can suffer for their speed if they run a Kairai heavy list.
The more prominent problem is the size of the Zone as an 8" circle at the center of the table that cannot have impasseble terrain inside it means that terrain placement will be quite constrained on the table, and the middle will  be most likely empty enough for shooting and powerfull ranged ki feats to become a problem while things like Camouflage would be too disemphasized.

I will try your scenarios though so that I can actually give first hand experience instead of just theories on how they work. smileyMeanwhile keep up the good work and good luck with the random scenario generator part!

Thankd for your feedback! Yes the idea behind Joushou was that if you prayed an idols turned toward your opponent, you can screw him at the last minute with the decresing rule :) variable could be fine too^^

The idea behind gyakusatsu was the arena. VIM fighting to hold their ground in the middle, maybe we could reduce the zone (why not create 6" zones after all?) and maybe change the winnings conditions to balance it more (we only played Ito, STS and Ninjas up to now, so I don't know too much about about the other warbands weaknesses)

Anyway thanks for the feedback, I'll use your comments to alter these scenarios, and don't hesitate to propose some of your own, i'll make sure to give you the credits for it ;)

A little update on the scenario generator:

http://mauvais.troubadours.free.fr/

It now has a couple of tweaks that can be useful:

- pop-ups appear on scenario terms to remind the offical rules of it

- a log is here to remind what's new in the scenario generator

- there a favicon sur it looks nicer!

- the generator boots on the demo scenario (just F5 if you want to get back to it later)

 

These updates are only available for the offical scenarios: need to work on new scenario mecanics - which i'll submit once it's finished - to propose a better experience with original scenarios.

Hi, the scenario generator has been updated with the new erratas from the new tournament pack:

http://mauvais.troubadours.free.fr/

Other features won't be up before this summer, as work is pretty tight right now. I'll have more time after June to further this tool.
