While I've been working on the combat update plans I've been chipping away at the games to-do list and over the last few weeks that's accumulated into enough for an update, it's made up of lots of smaller updates and ideas, most of them player suggestions! Enjoy :)
GOBLIN SLAVER IMPROVEMENTS
Thanks to Ursur from Discord for this idea, we've added personal guards for the goblin slaver so you can actually keep the ones you like around for a lot longer, and well as a few other tweaks to the slaver in general
- Added Goblin Slaver Personal Guard (150gold, 2x less likely to lose goblin slaver)(credit Ursur)
- Added Goblin Slaver Guard group (500gold, 10x less likely to lose goblin slaver)(credit Ursur)
- Added Goblin Slaver Army of Guards (5000gold, never lose goblin slaver)(credit Ursur)
- Slightly reworked screen for talking to goblin slaver
- Added alt screen for ordering goblin slavers death if you have a guard assigned to him
- Added alt screen for ordering goblin slavers death if you have mutliple guards assigned to him
This is just one thing but it's cool enough for it's own spot. Now if you aren't playing as Aslona you will have a random banner between one of 50 different things instead of the classic 'A', what will you get?
- Added your kingdom will get a random banner if it's name is not 'Aslona'
DIRT DEN TAVERN
I was clearing through old notes when I saw mention of a mutant tavern by Dtyn8 on reddit, I thought it was a funny idea so now we've got a new tavern down there replacing the Dirt Den.
- Added new tavern 'Dirt Den' to the Blackmarket Sewers (credit u/Dtyn8)
- Added Pargo Blargoson
- Added ability to speak to local mutant
- Removed original dirt den from the sewers
- Added ability to drink Upperfolk Ale (4 gold) and Green Junk (1 gold)
DISARMING YOUR MEN
Another solo item category but another feature I thought was too cool to be in the bottom section, now you will notice a new option when in the troop recruitment screen, you can disarm yoru soldiers and have them become peasants if they begin to cost too much or you need a quick workforce, a great idea from u/TheGamingDictator
- Added ability to convert soldiers to peasants (credit u/TheGamingDictator)
BANDIT HORDE BRIBERY
Bandit Horde bribery has been reworked, now you get a sequence of screens once you bribe the horde to disband explaining what's going on. There are also several other tweaks to it making the whole thing a lot better.
- Added 2 sound effects to paying bribe to bandits
- Added 4 new screens to bribing bandits to disband
- Reworked paying bandits to disband text
- Reduced cost of bribing bandit horde to cease decreased 10 fold (from totalmen land 1000) to (totalmen land 100)
