The player can’t marry him because it would require that one of them abandon its titles, and neither is willing to do so.(The Northern Prince because he is a dutiful heir, the Player because the game would end). The Northern Prince can only become a “lover” of sorts.
About the number of suitable options for the female noble, there are only two, one which is clearly a “bad move”. I would like to add at least one more.
If you ally yourself with Dullis through marriage, you eventually get help against Lord Noyedas. That doesn’t appear during the first part of the siege, though.
There are a couple of variables that exist for the sole purpose of telling if the player knows about the hints(or the blatant confessions) that Noyedas is up to something, but I noticed the main one wasn’t being set as true during the interaction with the assassin. If that one is set as “true”, you can speak to Jenneht about the ambitions of Lord Noyedas, and it is mentioned during a specific conversation with Meybuk, along with a few brief passages in other scenes. Going to upload the fix now.
I’m aiming to make available a conversation with each member of the council about that(and some other subjects) and what can be done about it.
Probably an increase in morale. I don’t think a single battle can be that efficient in increasing the power of the troops, but perhaps it could serve to turn a number of militia into men at arms.
Thanks for the kind words.
1 - While there are a few layers of intrigue and lies regarding both Nellasha and Sessanah, I think that in the end the ruling lady would rather let you do whatever you please with her sister than to risk maneuver their troops outside of their domain. Giving her back to them would be the best way to get in good terms with the swamp people, at least the noble ones. Regardless, Boglan has a tendency of staying neutral in most conflicts that occur outside of its border.
2 - The path to becoming King/Queen is the main of the main “ending” game, regardless of who you side with or against.
3 - You have to pay 10k and have Social above 50 in order to convince him to join you, but he’ll also accept if you offer 15k regardless of your stats.
Also, let me congratulate you on getting 12k. I didn’t even know it was possible(I still need to test for balance many of the monetary interactions of the game).
