The game looks far more fun than critics gave it credit for, and I think the game could definitely inspire a WWR campaign. Plus with some visual inspiration to how certain things look, i.e. a Legionnaire fighting against a few barbarians and some of the more fantastic things presented.
I had my game set in Gaul but the British Isles look great as well, giving the players a feeling that they are definitely exerting the power of Rome alongside some enigmatic NPCs and enemies. Plus some of the perspective of the game's story is helpful and they got a lot of the terminology in line with the WWR setting. _________________ *grabs goblin* "Speak common!" *punch* "SPEAK COMMON!"
I think the idea of setting a campaign in Gaul or Britannia is a good idea, I've planned for my campaign to be set in the Saxon Shore (Gaul and Britannia) during the Barbarian Conspiracy and the last decades of Rome's Britannia occupation. There's lots of variety in either of those locations.
As to Ryse being better than what the critics credit it, couldn't disagree with you more; I played it on a friends shiny new Xone and it's mediocre at best.
I mean that's a fair opinion, but it from what I've gathered the single player is nice, a little repetitive but the executions never got old plus it was fun to get fancy with the combats. The story is what I was refering to though, at least predominantly. _________________ *grabs goblin* "Speak common!" *punch* "SPEAK COMMON!"
