  1. Hello. I love the game but I find the religious aspect to be a little underplayed. If w elive in a society with many gods why is there not a pantheon to worship instead of just being a follower of one? Maybe even sub-deities would be a good idea, or a kind of hero worship. I feel that priests should be the only ones who really have to choose a particular god to follow. I think that praying to the gods should give different bonuses instead. My favourite religion model in a game was the one in an old sandbox mmo called Roma Victor. Given that it was lacking in many subjects of the game, religion is something i liked the most. You could pray to the gods, and the word was that it might do something, but the reality of it was almost purely based on the players and how they viewed it. It created a whole religious culture in the games that included sacrifices and justifications for other actions. I was reminded when I first saw in my event box that "I feel the presence of ____" of sacred groves. I wish I could see more religious significance in these areas. Unfortunately with the current build of religion in the game, I don't see a lot of ways to achieve this, which is partly why I would love to see what you all have to say! EDIT: Also I'm not sure if there are religious centers besides the white/black light... but there should be one for each god, no?
  2. Hi there. While learning a small amount about the lore and playing the game for a while, I thought that the appalling subject of Libila worship was underplayed. According to early Christian teachings, the Devil often tempted his converts with riches and powers. These converts were said to practice or commence in ceremonies such as the Black Mass in secret under the nose of the European populous and even at times, secretly in Christian places of worship. This is part of Libila's inscription on the Bone Altar: "Let me sharpen you, and let me run you through the heart of my enemies. For this I will reward you greatly. You will be given powers beyond normal mortal possibilities. Exact my revenge anywhere, anytime and anyhow. Make it painful and frightening. Together, let us enter the Forbidden Lands. We are all in our right to do so!" This is not totally different from early Catholic dogma during the Dark Ages used to scare a chaotic European populous into becoming a tighter and more orderly society. With this being said, why are Libila worshipers only confined to being openly part of the HotS? Why can't they worship in secret in return for great powers promised by the dark goddess if certain rituals are met? I can see this implemented in TWO methods, though I'm sure that there are more that I'm not thinking of... 1) On certain days, moon cycles, or whatever else, the cultist should desecrate one of the three light god's domains by commiting actions such as sacrificing a tamed mountain gorilla in the domain of Magranon or desecrating an altar with the taint of Libila. 2) Seeing that players lack religious zealotry of a fictional world enough to convict a religious upstart to a crime, an obvious problem is presented. A way to bypass this problem is to make Libila worship allowed through settlement laws, which brings me to my next point... Throughout medieval history there has not only been wars between kingdoms but also in-fighting between vassals. One of the reasons for the multitudes of these mini-wars was religion. Some went as far as to call them crusades, such as those against the Albigensians or Cathars. Religious in-fighting may be possible through the tolerance of Libila worship or even the securing of holy grounds from other villages. This may even be a jumping off point for the creation of Boroughs, Republics, Duchies, or maybe even kingdoms having sort of leadership. Making a priest or champion gain faith or other bonuses through ousting these cultists (or 'witches') may be another counter-benefit to the witch/witch hunt implementation. Libila cultists, witches, secret priests, fallen priests, etc., could have powers such as a curse of lycanthropy or something while those who devote themselves to hunting these antagonists can have powers or abilities themselves. Please note that when writing this, I intend not to advocate for display a representation of Christianity, witchcraft, or Satanism in the game and do not wish to advocate for any side nor condemn any religion. I also do not intend to advocate for a furthering of historical accuracy in a fantasy game setting. I hope I didn't offend any of you If you have any issues or further suggestions, let them fly!
  3. I should emphasize that the whole computer 'freezes' and not 'shuts down'. Does that change anything?
  4. I've gotten this as well. I belive it's a Java crash report. It apperaed on the desktop. />http://pastebin.com/gGSQvnU1
  5. Hello when I load up the game, after about two minutes, give or take a few, the game not only crashes but the entire computer as well leaving me no other option besides that of a forced restart. I've had the issue before and fixed it by lowering the graphics settings. I've continued to do that with this problem but the issue persists. Heres the dxdiag: />http://pastebin.com/52G0J2ra Any help would be highly appreciated, thanks.

    It worked! Thanks, and sorry for the trouble.

    Ok thanks for the response. Heres the dxdiag: />http://pastebin.com/3sRy8KX4
  8. Freeze

    Hi there, my computer just totally freezes at about the time that everything renders. The sticky says that I should post the console file here so here is the pastebin link. I also have 50gb of free memory left so I don't think that's the problem. Thanks for the help. />http://pastebin.com/wEcvngKT
  9. true but if it's a small area for say a farm, it would make life much easier. Especially for new players and villages.
  10. Hi it would be great to manage who can go into a fenced area instead of shuffling with keys. It would help with personal areas and villaages both. Anyone agree?
