Baak's "Baron Baum" ~ for Myth II ~ v0.8
______________________________________________________________________________


This is an extraction of the "Baron Baum" unit from my "StoneHeart RDF!!" map
conversion. It replaces Wights, Barons, and most standard stampede units with
Baron Baums. The experimental "(+amb)" plugin also replaces lots of standard
ambient and hunting units (chicken/pig/deer/peasant) with Baron Baums.

The Baron Baum unit can also be used with Rocket Dorf Fest!! Ooooooh... ;D


What it is:
-----------

A Baron Baum is essentially a Baron unit converted into a Wight with twice the
power. He moves faster than a Wight, can take considerably more damage, can be
healed (he doesn't disintegrate into pus packets), and delivers one heck of a
punch when he is destroyed - or when he blows himself up via his T-Attack.

Stand back! He delivers twice the damage in *twice* the radius!! :D

... Did I mention he is always invisible on the overhead map?


History:
--------

"Baum" is actually German for "boom" - however, it means the type of boom that
you find on a ship: A long spar extending from a mast to hold or extend the
foot of a sail. Thus "baum", which sounds like the English "bomb" is something
of a double play on words. ;)

I went nuts with an English-German dictionary and created a vast list of puns
on various words and phrases (like "Gas Bag") to use as names for Baron Baums.
If you're ever interested in reverse translating, the dictionary is here:

If you wish to use the Baron Baum unit on a map, please give proper credit.

Enjoy!! :D
