Choice of Rebels Part 1 WIP thread

Hi. Cool game you got, so far. I have a few thoughts.

I played a charistmatic noble who tried to get on everyone’s good side (except the clergy, they hate me no matter what I do) 'cause it seems to me an army full of nothing but dirty, ill-equipped helots would get their asses char-broiled in short order when the blood mages get around to stamping out my rebellion. Primarily I was thinking of making nice with the nobility and fighting for a free and independant kingdom and all that good stuff - the helots are secondary. It occurred to me and correct me if I’m wrong, that such an alliance would probably be sealed in matrimony. I would be getting my political marriage on, in other words. It could potentionally spell death for my budding romance with my main girl Breden, or come back to bite me with the noble ladies because they don’t want anything to do with a guy who’s screwing around with a peasant girl.

Don’t know if anyone’s mentioned this already, or if you’re already considering this. I couldn’t be bothered to read the whole thread.

Also I was initially confused about what “Arms” meant in the stats screen. It was a while before I realized it was how many warriors I had. You may want to clear this up.

One more thing. In my struggle for a free Shayard, will I be working toward the old monarchy, or will there be options to push for other forms of government?
