The thread is really long, so these may have been answered.
Will there be a chance to contact existing guilds or help in their creation? When it comes to political influence, money is omnipotent. I’m thinking of a MC who grows deep roots through the economy, and possibly operating secretly as a merchant, collecting wealth and power under a false name. Think in terms of a shell company.
I know violence and fighting were secondary traits next to relationships, but I can’t get the idea of a dramatic scene out of my head. Dignitaries enter from another country, offer greetings and bows, then throw off cloaks. They rush the king and him and his men barely hold on. Then the MC dramatically bursts through a side door, cries “insert personal battle cry” and charges into the fight with his handfull of guards/friends. Nearly dead to a man, they hold on until more guards arive. As he bleeds on the ground, he looks at his father and either says “Do you love me now father?” or " bloody old man cannt even fight properly".
This is the least likley. Founding or joining an organization with international connections. Think the Spider from Game of Thrones or Cerberus from Mass Effect. Say your soon to be married sister is later threatened, twould words organize an escape and return to the kingdom.
(I know this is long)
Will there be a chance to get a servant or guard as a right hand man? Such as casually aproching a guard to teach you to fight, who brutally teaches you as revenge for being royalty, who later respects you for being stuborn. Or maybe a gang of street orphans you save from the guards, who then become “your” gang. Someone you can, through various means, keep on “your” team.
I have other questions, but this is already too long.
To say I am excited about this would be like calling lava hot. Doing a great job!
