Storyline & Quests

Many new quests are planned. Some facts:

- There will be over 50 quests for version 2.0. About 100 quests for version 2.5.
- 5 quests for most of noble houses.
- 5 quests for most of warrior & religious orders.
- 10 quests for the main storyline.
- 20 side quests.
- Noble houses can declare war against other noble houses, so rebel independent factions can be carved out of original kingdom. Such weakened kingdom can be tasty morsel for other kingdoms.
- Treasure hunting!
- Elements of folklore are going to be introduced. Of course not elves and fireballs.  :smile:
- Bards can tell you riddles.
- And more and more...

Some quick screenshots to give you an idea how it will look like:

New character creation and menu art

New character creation was added to upcoming version. It's based on following system:

- To which culture do you belong?
- In which kingdom were you born?
- Who was your father?

We are also going to add a lot of new menu art by Morcant. Here are some screens of both features:

These features are awesome! This will be one of my favorite mods, but sadly it won't be ported to warband, right? :sad:

No, it won't be ported to Warband, sorry. It will be ported, when you will buy for me me a new computer.  :twisted:

Thank you everyone for your comments!

Such as my kingdom!  :cool:
