So just got back from a trip away, this is me finishing up a small update from before I left, mostly bugfixes and some throne room tweaks, there is a plan for a bigger update going forward but I'm going to keep it a secret for now!
An issue with assassinations was raised by ecclark, and in my opinion you should be able to essentially solve any problem in your kingdom with enough gold, so now there are better upgrades to pretty much remove assassinations of your grand champion from the game.
- Added grand champion militia guard (500gold) (2x less assassinations on champions) (credit u/ecclark_7)
- Added grand champion city guard (1000gold) (10x less assassinations on champions) (credit u/ecclark_7)
- Added grand champion elite guard (3000gold) (100x less assassinations on champions) (credit u/ecclark_7)
Some new sound effects some custom made, in an attempt to make the game feel more alive! the axe throwing entertainment/minigame is now fully filled with sound.
- Added new sound effect 'goblin cackle'
- Added new sound 'small crowd clap' used in axe throwing
- Added 3 new sound effects to axe throwing 'miss, hit and kill'
- Added 3 possible sounds for axe throw hit
- Added new sound effect 'laugh and run'
- Added page turn sound effect to guildrow library books
