Patchnotes via Steam Community

Very sorry for the delay on the update. I'll add some additional info to the notes later, but need a bit of rest now.

User Interface

  • Filter option added to the "Action" section allowing hiding/showing actions not related to the current selection. For example, if an army is selected this will hide the various Explore and Build actions that may be valid for the hex selection.
  • Handled/dismissed notifications (for the current turn) can now be re-shown. They cannot be re-opened at the moment, but this will be added in a future update (as a read-only mode in cases with irrevocable choices).
  • Improved tooltips and hint text for Tribal Destiny related UI.


  • Improved the selection of character portraits for several races and cultures.
  • Optimized several aspects of world generation.
  • Added additional logic to prevent adjacent/very close starting positions for major factions (warlords, wizards). It can still happen but should be much less likely to occur.
  • Improved the impact on character generation from cultural traits and attributes. Additional factors are now considered when resolving/choosing from variables during generation.
  • Some unit types now have immunity to Terror and/or Unsettling.
  • New Unit Type: Deep Ones. Eldritch aquatic fish people.
  • New Unit Type: Zoanthralgea. Eldritch aquatic unit with poison attack and strong armor/toughness.
  • New Unit Type: Psychopolyps. Eldritch aquatic unit with psychic attack and ability to cause terror.
  • New Unit Type: Feral Ogres. Undisciplined and unarmored, but tough and with strong melee damage.
  • New Unit Type: Jotnar. Giant-type unit that is slightly larger than Ogres. Limited regeneration and light infantry/scout abilities. Also capable of moderately damaging magic ranged attack.
  • New Unit Type: Rime Trolls. Frost-themed trolls with slightly less physical power than "regular" trolls, but having a Cold damage breath attack.
  • Various "generic" Ogre units can be generated independently from a specific culture for various events and factions.
  • Fixed bug related to equipment bonuses being applied multiple times during some specific sequences of events.
  • Fixed an issue where scrolling the Outliner would also scroll the world map.
  • Fixed a number of crash and hang bugs.
