Essos Dev Diary- Release Date

Essos Dev Diary- Release Date

PostPosted by knuckey » Tue Dec 10, 2013 18:27

So it's December and the promised release of Essos is on track. Testing is going well so, barring unforeseen circumstances, we shall be releasing on Tuesday 17th December! In the meantime here is a couple of things we've been doing:

Dany Quest
----------
Daenerys is obviously a very important character in the Song of Ice and Fire, and so we have given her a detailed event chain that spans the Clash of Kings and Feast for crows scenarios to try and recreate her story for the player in the mod.
Image

The main chain will follow her progress from Qarth to Astapor where she claims an Unsullied army. From there the player must defeat the other cities of Slaver's Bay, and will hopefully one day eradicate slavery and return to Westeros. There are a few tangents the player can go on as well, maybe you will choose not to go to Slaver's bay and go straight to your homeland to reclaim your birthright?

Faith of the Seven
------------------
The Sons of Abraham DLC has given us an opportunity to expand on the Faith somewhat. We have applied the Cardinal mechanics to the Faith, so the High Septon is elected by a Council of the Most Devout. We've also taken many of the flavour events from the DLC and given them an AGOT twist. The High Septon can now also be much more important and powerful within a Kingdom, that is if his Faith Authority is high enough:
Image

As you can see the higher his authority the more power he has within the realm, on medium or higher for example the Faith is allowed to arm and form the Holy orders of the Faith Militant. There also buildings which can now be built in temple holdings for certain religions. The Faith can build them if they have High Faith Authority:

That is all until next week :)

I will have to put aside any other presents I get at Christmas for a while...
Also is that a new icon for widowed?

Damn, only a week out with my internal guess.
It'll be great fun.
I now have a signature. Hurray.
Here is a link to my personal list of FAQs. Please check there to see if it answers you question. (It is not very extensive right now, but once exam season is over expect some big updates)

In all honesty, clarification on a few points / an updated faq would probably not be a bad idea, unless the joy of discovery is what we are aiming for here.

Discovery is great. Like, imagine sailing to the Smoking Sea to see what would happen, conquering Westeros with Dothraki or making Daenerys actually go to Westeros!

This wasn't made any funnier (or funny at all in this jokes place) just because you posted it in two threads you don't like how long it takes them make your own and if you can't then you have no right to complain

I saw this before Duncan's post, and was legitimately scared.
