In Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord, you need to keep your head about you at all times. And with the game’s new death system, this rings especially true, lest your adventures come to an abrupt end to the executioner’s axe!

Can you tell the lord "that's a nice head you have on your shoulders" before you chop it off?

So I assume the AI on AI action will also happen? Just make me more afraid that the influence mana is band-aid for relationship net that wouldn't work with NPCs dying off.

Not really sure what to make out of it, personally I think it obviously won't be graphic enough to satiate those wanting tortures and whatnot, while also being underused - if used at all - feature in usual gameplay, rather a gimmick for a one-off Vlad the Impaler kind of affair. We'll see.

A mechanic "so new" that even Cap. Lust told us about it a few years ago.  :shifty:

Personally, I don't see why the 'animation' couldn't be replaced by an actual scene that you take part in.

It's not as though you don't kill plenty of people in battle anyway, often more gruesomely, I expect. Just have the condemned man or woman in a scene with some soldiers, and allow the player to walk up to them and hit them with a weapon. And they fall over and die. I don't see the difference between doing that in a set-piece execution scene and doing it in a battle, in terms of Public Moral Outrage.If anything, it'd make the decision feel more powerful, rather than being trivialized into a series of menu-clicks.

You could have the option of giving the task to one of your minions, so you wouldn't have to do it yourself or watch every time if you didn't feel like it.

If Bannerlord is like Warband, I'll gladly suffer the consequences to execute those dishonorable lords that constantly raid the player's starting village.

The one who passes the sentence should swing the sword.
