Well that logic, though valid and good, would exclude a lot of stuff in the game.


Maybe that could be the point? I'm assuming that we're on the same page here (the same page being her level 10 power being dependant on water terrain).

In my opinion if people are going to be building Suhayr, they're going to take into account of what kind of units that the player plans to have (like corsairs for leadership) and what terrain they plan to play on. I kind of like the fact that Suhayr's level 10 power is dependant on water terrain because it's an original idea. But at the same time I can see how it would be more of a disadvantage.

This is wholly dependent on whether the current heroes would suffice (on land).

What would be more important is that the faction in question doesn't become op'ed.

Unless we add a Corsair Inn faction. I for one would like to see all the normal factions leave the Inn and have special factions that represent the faction be there. So like Southern Fiefdom for Gondor. This gives the Inn an even more unique feel. So the Corsairs could be an evil faction, I would also like to see the Dunlanders as an Inn faction. Not saying that Isenguard should loose their Dunland units, just that they should have more units at the Inn, and more special units too.

Well so far we have a Southern Fiefdoms, a Dunlend, a Corsair, a Lindon, and a Ghundabad Innfaction. Anything else :D

You would have to put that one past Rob. It would be more work, though.

I could get into this idea, actually. But the only thing I'd be concerned about is cookie-cutting. I mean you can only have so many different kinds of archers... This is kind of off-topic.

I don't know about Suhayr's level 10 power. I mean it could work out... Maybe it should just stop at Bribery?

You can have lots of Archers. There are many types of bows. You just would have to make the bows realistic. So Longbows work like real longbows, x-bows behave like real x-bows, axe throwers act like a real axe thrower, and recurve composite bows fire like a real recurve composite bow.

He's saying they get repetetive after a while.

Because that's basically just a stat change...it's like having gondor soldiers and lorien warriors and guardians and yoemen all in one faction...what's the difference, except that some are better and more expensive while others are cheaper?

Well of course that is the difference. Besides looks. I mean I want a ranged unit, so my choices are a long range inaccurate longbow or a short range accurate crossbow? The same applies to any melee weapon. I mean the only difference inbetween a dwarven ax and a Gondor soldier is stats and a model.

Pretty much. And I prefer repetition over a lack of realism.

Too much realism for me. It won't be fun that way :p .


Just because the Good Factions get the option to pick the "Southern Fiefdoms" as an Inn alliance, doesn't mean that the Evil Faction has to mirror that. I think that that is what helps make the Good Factions more different than the Evil Factions. Besides there's not a lot of "need" to add a new Inn faction for the Evil guys either.

But those are just my thoughts.

I think if Suhayr gets into RJ, we should make an easteregg where she turns into a ship if you press S or something. :p

so many things so many work a lot of ideas comes with this topic i seen now

“On a given day, a given circumstance, you think you have a limit. And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit, and you think, 'Okay, this is the limit'. And so you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further. With your mind power, your determination, your instinct, and the experience as well, you can fly very high.” Ayrton Senna
