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:
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.
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:
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:
