Looking forward to see how that turns out.These and other clan members should not be a problem to talk to with the adjustments described in the OP.
For those wondering about our previous conversation about messengers follow this quote to see.
I don't think that there will be a telepathy type option. Yes it increases QoL but it also detracts from the players own interactions with the world.
Nonetheless, some improvements may be made. For instance, we recently discussed an option to barter for your captive clan members via a settlement's prisoner broker. Maybe a similar solution (with representatives in reliable locations) could be found for mercenaries. I will add the topic to the suggestion list.
Duh, you guys still thinking of the landline solution or has this evolved?I agree that some things in the game require too much micro management, but I think that the landline option is an acceptable compromise. And do keep in mind that that's just my take. Who knows, maybe it will go a different avenue entirely.
