Sheaths : These will be eventually done. It's just ALOT of work so I figured I'd do it like this so I could release earlier and so you guys could play earlier.
Like I said, I guess I'll have to do it eventually, but currently I'm very busy with bugs and adding the rank system. (Same goes with the shields. They're alot of work so for now I left them out.)
Talking about the rank system brings me to Merl's question -- Currently there is not really a war system. Only the occasional war parties of the trolls that go and attack some alliance war parties, but thats a temporarely and very simplistic solution I did to just get some fighting going on. I've also playtested a little and I noticed I must've really went wrong somewhere. The average alliance war party starting party size is 60. The trollish war party starting size is 40. This should've been the other way around.
I must've been tired when I did it and mixed up the two.. Will fix and also added to the bug list
I'm currently very much busy with the rank system wich automatically comes with the economic system and the build system, as well as pretty much IS the war system since to increase ranks you'll need 'heroicness' points and those are gained by fighting enemy parties. (Or doing the warcamp quest etc.)
To give you an idea,
Defeating Troll war party : +15 (heroicness)
Defeating caravan : +10
Defeating smaller parties (including barbarians : +5 or slightly higher
Destroying the warcamp : +100
Neccesary points for ranks go as follows
1000-Commander <- Enables build system and thus economic system
For each rank, the weekly wages are equivalent to the neccesary heroicness. So a general's weekly wages get 750 denars/week
An Gransmaster Knight gets 300denars/week etc.
Don't worry if some of this stuff sounds way unbalancing. I'll be implenting it like that and I'll be doing alot of balancing to get it just
I'm also currently right in the middle of scripting this. It's alot of work but I'm managing up untill now. You can already get excommunicated from the Headquarters if you threathen the Grand Admiral (the guy that grants you the ranks) or you piss of some guards. I've also implented the basic rank values and wages etc. so everything is going good.
