Well, here is a quick update on how the inn system works:
1) After capturing an inn you will have a few options. First there will be units available to all factions regardless of choices. Good-Hobbits, Evil-Corsairs.
2) Along with the default units, there will be at least 3 faction alliances available. Each one currently costs 500 and takes 30 seconds. This will be adjusted in the future with different faction alliances costing more or less.
The current faction lists that are available are:
How many alliance factions are available depends on how many I add. Currently there 4 for most. If I can get more units for different factions in game I'd like to add more. I'd love to have enough for Dale, Hobbits, Lorien, Rivendell, Iron Hills, Blue Mountains, & others with Elite Factions and all sorts of options. You can only purchase one faction per map. If you lose the inn and recapture it, the alliance will stay.
3) Once the faction upgrade is purchased you will have a number of units available, currently betwen 3-4 units. Below is a list of all of the units available from the inn currently for WotR era factions:
Gondor - Gondor Soldiers, Gondor Archers, Gondor Towerguards (to be replaced by Gondor Pikemen)
Rohan - Yeoman Soldiers, Yeoman Archers, Rohan Spearmen
South Fiefdom - Spearman of Pelargir, Footman of Ringlo Vale, Bowman of Morthond, Axeman of Lossnarch
Dwarves - Dwarven Guardians, Dwarven Phalanx, Dwarven Axethrowers
Elves - Lorien Warriors, Lorien Archers, Mithlond Sentries
Mordor - Orc Warriors, Orc Archers, Orc Pikmen
Isengard - Uruk-Hai, Uruk Crossbow, Uruk Pikemen
Haradrim - Haradrim Warriors, Haradrim Guardians, Haradrim Archers
Rhun - Easterling Archers, Easterling Pikemen, Easterling Warriors
Goblins - Goblin Fighters, Goblin Archers, Goblin Pikemen
Currently I am working out what options Angmar and Arnor will have.
4) In the future the Inns will gain levels as you produce units. At higher levels you will upgrade more elite troops as well as upgrades that can be purchased. (For example, at level 2 Basic Training might be available for the new factions, level 3 rangers, level 5 fire arrows, level 10 a hero) I have not decided exactly what the exact levels/units/heroes will be, but this is the future of the system
So there it is. This will be in the release this weekend.
