    [​IMG] A Goblin's Tale (by PROXY)

    <<Quests are a special thing in A goblin's tale. The ultimate goal is, to gain Reputation in Rivershire. You obviously start with 0 reputation, at a neutral level. Every action you do, everey quest you fullfil adds positivly to your reputation or negativly. And here comes the speciality of many of the quests in ~ A goblin's tale ~: Multiple decisions. For example, a guard is complaining about a witch, which resides in the forest nearby. You can decide now, do you want to kill her and bring the guard her head, giving you an extra Bonus from the guard, or do you keep her alive, telling the guard only that she agreed to leave the forest, giving you the normal reward from the guard + the witch will sell you recipes for potions.>>

    [​IMG] Lordaeron: The Aftermath (by Goblinkingsp)

    <<Set just after the events of Reign of Chaos, Illidan has cast a spell damaging the Frozen Throne and countless minions of the Lich King have rebelled. Sensing an opportunity to strike the Legions Dreadlords plot Arthas's downfall whilst the broken Alliance Remnants also battle for control of their ravaged homeland. Take control of the Blood Elves, Scourge, the Legion, the Dalaran Remnants, Dwarves, Trolls, Forsaken, the Cult of the Damned or the Silver Hand. Battle for supremacy of the shattered land of Lordaeron in a grand strategy for the ages!>>

    polar geometry.

    doesn't that depend on what you want to do with them? You could use a stack, or if you wanted search it you would use a binary tree, on the other hand if you wanted to maintain list order you would use a queue.

    isn't that O(n)?

    Stack, heap or static memory. The JASS2 VM doesnt allow dynamic allocation, so in the case of WC3 theres no heap for scalar types of data.
