Bug Description

While thinking about, whether to use "du" or "Ihr" in the campaign texts in the forum https://wl.widelands.org/forum/topic/1668/ I realised, that the Empire characters don’t seem to know their own relationship to each other.

Lutius, the main character, tells in his diary, that he took his men, his family and his best friends with them.
The first two times Saledus talks to him, he calls him "Sire", which tells me, he is Lutius’ subordinate. https://www.transifex.com/projects/p/widelands/translate/#de/scenario_emp01/40213728
But in the third talk he calls him "my good old friend" and switches to a more informal tone, which he keeps for the rest of the campaigns.
Amalea talks to Lutius as if he’s her brother, especially when greeting him with "Hey" or "Hi", but calls him "my friend" in the second campaign. https://www.transifex.com/projects/p/widelands/translate/#de/scenario_emp02/40213908

For the (german) translation it’s important to know their relationship, so I guess, a minor rework of those campaign texts is necessary.

I reworked said wiki page (OT: is there a way to make line breaks in a table cell?). I also changed the campaign texts in a personal branch and try to get it uploaded and linked to. (Never tried that before…)

One question: Amalea talks about processing the logs the lumberjacks harvest to lumber. Should that be changed to wood (or planks as that’s the future correct term)?

No.

Leave the lumber alone for now, it is better if we fix this after the changes have gone through - will break less translations.

The translations are broken with this branch anyway, that’s why I ask.
