Default Warsim: The Realm of Aslona (Procedurally generated kingdom management RPG)

March 18th, 2019, 13:58
Hello all, my name is Huw and for the past 4 or so years now I've been solo developing a game called Warsim, some of you may have heard of it as a large number of those who have played the game are dwarf fortress fans too, Warsim was based on many games I've enjoyed including mount and blade, dwarf fortress, the elder scrolls series and king of dragon pass.

The game has been on steam for a while now and is rated among the 250 best hidden gems on steam steam250.com, this is due to the 97% positive rating it has from 114 reviews, but relatively low sales.



the game features a heavily procedurally generated world as you try to rule the Kingdom of Aslona, a once great land now plagued by rebellion, a united horde of bandits, two strong kingdoms of goblins and five randomly generated independent kingdoms with randomly generated races as well as countless other side factions, I have always loved randomly generated content and so the game is full of it.

* Scores of places to explore including, a giant blackmarket filled with mystery and wonder, hidden cities (that's right multiple of them), Two schools where you can take lessons, one in music and one in history, a procedurally generated newspaper, and tons more, there has been an excessive amount of time spent fleshing out the world, exploration is heavily rewarded.
* An arena which you can takeover and grow, or watch and bet on, holding giant tournaments and rooting for champions as they climb the ranks and get remembered for eternity.
* A unique facial procedural generation system that can produce well over 100 quadrillion different faces for a variety of different races from Humans and orcs, to kobolds and treemen.
* Deal with the throne room, a complex place with thousands of possible encounters and visitors, how will you manage the realm and treat your people?
* Listen to some procedurally generated music, be it the drum solo of a nervous travelling goblin bard, or the proud music prowess of a well trained vampire showing off with his vampyric lute (or find the music guild and try your own hand at playing these instruments)
* Tons of random events, no game will be the same, with the kingdoms, rulers and events always being different and hard to predict.
* Procedurally generated kingdoms, bandit gangs and mercenary groups, never get the same group twice, be they Seafaring Goblins, Fire Orcs, Eyeless Elves or the Famed Half-Turtles of the Western Turtledom, all these races possible and a million more.
* Countless mini-games played in taverns, your throne room, or around in the world to keep you entertained.
* And so much more…

A really good let's play made somewhat recently, though the game has grown greatly since this playthrough

Here's the games steam store page

Feel free to check out our reddit community on /r/WarsimRpg (There is a link in the sidebar to download the old free version of the game)

I am massively open to feedback, I have a tendency to add things that are suggested by players into the game and will respond to pretty much all the comments I get! Happy to answer any questions you guys have and would love feedback of any kind!

Hey guys, so this update has been stewing for a few days and has mainly stemmed from me playing the game and then finding stuff during my playthroughs to update, I spent extensive time messing around with the arena as well as lots of bugfixing and updating, there's quite a bit of new and improved stuff in this update!

**A POLISHED ARENA**

After finishing working on the arena a few updates back I didn't think there was much to improve on, but recent testing and brainstorming has led to massive changes, including reworking the hall of fame which now has 3x longer descriptions for the dead heroes and it's own music. Demotion works differently, special events regarding champions that were previously blocked now happen, there are new screens for buying/taking over the arena, setting arena rules and laws has been improved and upgrades are explained a little better. Bribing the grand champion to fight again will also not cost as much unless you are bigger and more powerful.

* Added new dynamic descriptions to the busts of champions in the hall of fame
* Added new explanation text for Arena size upgrade effects in arena upgrades screen
* Added new screen when demoting a grand champion where you can choose how the replacement is selected (3 options) random replacement, later duel, immediate duel
* Added new system for bribing champion based on aslona lands (under 5 is 500gold)(under 10 is 1000)(under 25 is 1500)(more than 25 is 2500)
* Added 3 variants of resigned path for arena grand champion
* Added Arena champion who joins rebellion joins as a Rebel Lord not a soldier (+2000 gold to rebels)
* Added Arena champion who joins bandit horde joins as disgraced hero not a warlord (+2000 gold to bandits)
* Added new screen for champion refusing to join your personal retinue
* Added new screen for taking the arena from family member
* Added new screen for buying the arena
* Added secret coded 404 in arena to wipe champion and allow for a champion challenge
* Added new ominous loop to hall of fame in arena
* Added new screen for setting arena fights to play by play
* Rewrote arena upgrade text

**GOBLIN DEVELOPMENTS**

This is kind of a silly reference to an older part of the game, in the early days of warsim's exploration screen there was a single region of locations, one of them was a small goblin settlement that could be developed to absurd levels to provide cheap goblin hirelings, well this is similar but not as powerful. Still get to the point where you're raking in up to 2.5k goblin troops per turn. (Note: will be adding issues in the future for any kingdom where the goblins outnumber all others, so this will not be the most viable situation if you aren't also getting lots of other troops)

* Added new kingdom upgrade (Small Goblin Hamlet) 30000 gold (0-35 goblin per turn)
* Added new kingdom upgrade (Goblin Hamlet) 40000 gold (0-45 goblin per turn)
* Added new kingdom upgrade (Large Goblin Hamlet) 55000 gold (0-60 goblin per turn)
* Added new kingdom upgrade (Small Goblin Town) 70000 gold (0-80 goblin per turn)
* Added new kingdom upgrade (Goblin Town) 100000 gold (0-120 goblin per turn)
* Added new kingdom upgrade (Large Goblin Town) 135000 gold (0-150 goblin per turn)
* Added new kingdom upgrade (Small Goblin City) 150000 gold (0-200 goblin per turn)
* Added new kingdom upgrade (Goblin City) 200000 gold (0-250 goblin per turn)
* Added new kingdom upgrade (Large Goblin City) 250000 gold (0-350 goblin per turn)
* Added new kingdom upgrade (Goblin Megacity) 350000 gold (0-500 goblin per turn)
* Added new kingdom upgrade (Huge Goblin Megacity) 500000 gold (0-750 goblin per turn)
* Added new kingdom upgrade (Goblin City-State) 750000 gold (0-1000 goblin per turn)
* Added new kingdom upgrade (Huge Goblin City-State) 1000000 gold (0-2500 goblin per turn)

**NEW SMALLER FEATURES**

Now the throne room has a little more detailed blurb depending on how many visitors there are, there is now a bonus stat in the kingdom stats screen showing which kingdom is most densely populated which was quite interesting to see, now when a civ gets more civilised their people get a little stronger too. I was playtesting recently and in one event an emissary I sent got killed and I was sent his head, now there's dynamic a screen and graphic for that.

* Added Dynamic 19 different possible texts depending on how many visitors you have in throne room
* Added new screen to kingdom stats showing which faction is most densely packed
* Added 5% increase for all units battlescore when their kingdom gets more civilised
* Added new screen for getting sent your emissaries head

**END OF TURN SCREENS**

Continuing on from the last update I've made two more single line end of turn events now have their own screen as they are relevant to the game, though if you haven't discovered the blackmarket you won't get a pop up as it's far less relevant.

* Added special end of turn pop up screen for blackmarket century festival
* Added end of turn small notification of century festival if you haven't discovered the blackmarket
* Added new special end of turn pop up screen for great thundering skies secret event
* Added ability to understand thundering sky event more if your spymaster has a skill of 160+

**NEW SOUNDS**

A bunch of new sounds, now warsim has over 350+ sound files in total, shocked me when I counted them up but I guess the sound file has been growing recently!

* Added marching sound to northwatch reinforcing thickblood event
* Added new deathsound for dead emissary event
* Added gold coin sound effect when giving 1000 gold to cousin in throne room
* Added 4 new sounds for mmm sound
* Added mmm sound effects to 2 broke encounters in throne room
* Added new thundering sound effect
* Added 3 sound effects to dragon wench knight game
* Added grunt sound to arsam the all knowing intro

**NEW REACTIONS**

Only one new one, this is just someone reacting reasonably to you being broke.

* Added new 'what can you do' reaction to having no gold

**BUGFIXES**

So many bug fixes, like so many… Just as I thought my game was bugfree…

Hey guys I'm really happy to finally be able to release this update today, this has been another tough one to code so it look a lot longer than expected but here we are, the Monster Trainer Update. I also recorded a video demonstrating the new monster trainer update features, see it [here](https://youtu.be/AtY4JtKLwc4).



**MONSTER TRAINER UPDATE**

So this was suggested a while ago on audiogames and also recently on steam by Blackenblood and so others so finally I decided to give it a go, now you can build a monster pit and find yourself some procedurally generated monsters either by buying them or sending an expedition of soldiers to capture one for you, captured monsters can fight with eachother, be named, be trained, or be pitted against one of 42 different challengers each with their own procedurally generated beasts, the system was made to be fun and was bugtested more rigorously than new features usually are but let me know of any bugs or suggestions you have for it!

Hey guys so this is an update just working through some of the leftovers of my current warsim to do list before I move on to some promised update work that's going to take a bit longer, lots of different stuff as well as some cool things to see!

**MODDERS TOOLBOX IMPROVED**

I promised I'd develop the modders toolbox a while ago but haven't added anything to it in quite a while, well now you can add animals to the game and the monster mod part system allows for easier part editing, thanks to 71 for bringing my attention to this!

* Added animal creator to modders toolbox
* Updated title of modders toolbox screen
* Added new ability to learn more about monster mod system in the mod menu
* Reworked Monster part maker in modders toolbox (now better guidelines, better previews, reworked screen layouts)

**MINOR NEW FEATURES**

A few little tweaks and things here!

* Added indicator of change from throwing peasants into the lava pit (credit omer)
* Added faction ranking screen to kingdom reports screen
* Added three new graphics for training grounds/barracks/grand barracks (one for each)
* Made normal throne room encounters occur more often than celebration related encounter during celebration

**RACE SYSTEM IMPROVEMENTS**

I wasn't planning on touching the race system again for a while but I had a new influx of ideas poured in and so while actioning them I added some new features to pre-existing races as well as my own new prefixes, now you can have space races that will blast off to space at some point and leave the game world. Also thanks to /u/administrativetreat7 there are now millions more races!

**u/AdministrativeTreat7's RACE SUGGESTIONS**

Thanks to u/AdministrativeTreat7's suggestions we have a total of
2'950'350 new races in the game thanks to this suggestion!

* 2.9 Million new possible races thanks to u/AdministrativeTreat7
* Added new race prefix 'Albino' (white skin and -5 battlescore)

* Added ability to train your monster trainer (credit KenshiraTheTrinity @audiogames.net)

**BUGFIXES**

Lots of bugfixes here including some that have been on my list for quite some time, the most annoying two bugs were grand champions getting killed in a tournment and then not appearing in the hall of fame, after losing a favourite champion of mine in a game to this it got personal, also independent lords not having faces relevant to the race, so eyeless vampires in your throne room, and their leader would be eyeless but the lords would just be regular vampires… not anymore!

* Fixed option tags in specific monster generator (credit 71)
* Fixed ditch race description
* Fixed league of darkness and league of good kingdom status not changing when discovering new lands
* Fixed broken face part

* Fixed tournament mislabeling fighters that kill grand champion as grand champion
* Fixed southern and western explorer encounters saying they were eastern (credit bookrage)
* Fixed champion battle with independent champion skipping a screen
* Fixed grand champion defeated against foreign champ still exists with no name (credit u/timedonutheart)

**EVERYTHING ELSE**

A couple of other changes of varying significance!

* Added coin sound and coin loss screen to garalds city tours
* Changed colour of credits screen
* Updated title of warsim music library extras screen
* Updated hire staff and champions screen to manage staff and champions (credit u/LurkMorePlease)

I picked this up today but haven't had a chance to play it (probably won't until this weekend). I'm excited to check it out, though. After watching a couple of videos of folks on YouTube giving it a spin, it looked like a lot of fun.

Keep up the good work.

Wasn't planning on releasing this as an update but I discovered a game breaking bug with the race generation system and had to release this to ensure it doesn't mess up anyones game, luckily what I'd already worked on prior to the fix is enough for a nice little update!

**MAJOR FEATURES**

Now before a normal random races game, you can choose an additional choice of going like normal and taking what you're given or give yourself the option to review and reject the random races in your world and try for another random set, this allows lots of players to get a true feel for the randomness of the game and to get a game start more suited to them while still being random as hell.

Also in the extras menu generators screen there is now something called 'Advanced Race Generator' which allows you to spawn a big list of however many races you want.

* Added new menu for selecting races before a normal game
* Added new system for kingdom names to include weird proc genned name systems
* Added new graphical end of turn screen for any assassinations ordered by the player
* Added new extras generators race generator page where you can generate as many races as you choose (select a number)

**ANOTHER RACE EXPANSION**

The last few days I've been working through lists of suggestions and ideas for new prefixes for the race system as well as tweaking and adding new abilities to them, this coupled with the new 'taur' system mentioned below has resulted in an additional 10'079'211 races in Warsim. (Was 59'361'042 before, now 69'440'253). Many of these new races will have unique effects such as 3 sets of eyes, fixed leader personalities, longer heads and so on.

**Race prefixes**

* Added new race prefix 'Four-Eyed' (+5 battlescore, 2 sets of eyes)
* Added new race prefix 'Azure' (+1 battlescore, blue skin)

* Added new race prefix 'Metal' (silver skin, +11 battlescore) credit Bookrage from audiogames.net
* Added new race prefix 'Legendary' (10x battlescore, 2x population, +4 civilisation level) credit /u/AdministrativeTreat7
* Added new race prefix 'Mercantile' (always a mercantile leader, +1 civilisation level)
* Added new race prefix 'Underground' (+2 battlescore) credit /u/AdministrativeTreat7

* Added new race prefix 'Dirty' (-2 battlescore, brown skin)

* Added new race prefix 'Happy' (+5 population level, leaders always friendly)
* Added new race prefix 'Strange' (+2 battlescore, leaders are always strange)

**New beast races**

* Added New Race 'Chimpanzee Folk'
* Added New Race 'Chimpanzeemen'
* Added New Race 'Were-Chimpanzees'
* Added New Race 'Evolved Chimpanzees'
* Added New Race 'Half-Chimpanzees'

* Made races using ascended prefix always have neutral personality leaders
* Added +1 battlescore bonus to 'Big-eared' prefix (big ears should assist you a little)
* Made Mud races have brown skin colour (credit u/Nighteye424)

**GOODBYE CENTAARS**

This update contains another huge improvement to the race generator and its randomness, thanks to
a suggeston by u/Nighteye424, the idea was to have half-horse half-(everything) races instead of
just centaurs (half-horse half-man) or our special race of centaars (half-horse half-elf) centaars
were added long ago and well before the randomness of this race generator had picked up but now
they are no longer needed so they have been removed.

In their place however is a system that can generate tons of potential races including stuff like
Goblintaurs, Orctaurs, Elvetaurs, Trowtaurs, Trolltaurs, Cthuultaurs. Each of these races is it's
primary counterpart and half-horse giving them a battle bonus and a new name and description.

Now the races you find in the game can be even more random, though it's still rare to see a 'taur'
type race in game!

* Removed Centaars from the game
* Added new 'taurs' affix that can be added to all non-beast default races (except Men, Folk, Centaurs, Minotaurs, Minotaars, Satyr, Faun) as cool as it would be to see some Mentaurs…

**MINOR FEATURES**

Now King Gurnak has a face, All throne room executions look a little better, and freeing slaves screen has been improved with a new unique graphic!

* Added graphic for king gurnak diplomacy
* Made all executed characters faces turn blood-red during/after execution
* Added new graphic for freeing slaves screen in kingdom options

**BUGFIXES**

* Fixed bug with 4 animals in the race generator
* Fixed making new helmet through general screen kicks you from general screen when done
* Fixed debug and new lands kingdoms still keeping last lands lords and nobles
* Fixed three-headed and two-headed races making everyone two or three headed bug
* Fixed the crowning ceremony text colour bug
* Fixed edge prefix description bug
* Fixed 'colourful' prefix not working
* Fixed losing explore chances when you explore a region you've discovered everything
* Fixed erak screen diplomacy layout
* Fixed totem around it around it text bug (credit u/Telejimes)
* Fixed foreign king encounter text layout
* Fixed text wrap of demon totem text
* Fixed no indication of no peasants for sacrifice demon totem screen

**EVERYTHING ELSE**

* Added new dynamic text for prison labour yard (credit u/LurkMorePlease)

* Added colour to text of default faction's diplomacy screens

**WARSIM GENDER CHOICE UPDATE**

Hey guys, so I'm going to start this update with something I've needed to add for quite some time but just haven't gotten round to, when I first made this game it wasn't meant to be for anyone else, it was just a little test project to play around, because of that I never bothered adding options for how to be referred to, but I realised recently after watching a stream by a female streamer that it can be a little bit immersion breaking for those who want to imagine themselves in those roles being referred to as a King and a Lord, I've now added a system to allow the player to be male or female, but also to set their own titles of referal for anything non-binary or your own wacky titles, more freedom of playstyle is never a bad thing, sorry to anyone who has been waiting a while for this!

* Added new female name generator for choosing random names before game
* Added ability to play as a queen (or custom title) instead of always a king
* Added new graphic for choosing difficulty as a queen
* All references to Mister in game are now dynamic (Mister, Misses, CUSTOM)
* All references to m'lord in game are now dynamic (M'lord, M'lady, CUSTOM)
* All references to lord in game are now dynamic (Lord, Lady, CUSTOM)

P.S. I've tried to replace every single reference to the player being male, but there may be some I've missed so if someone plays as female and spots any I've missed please message me and I will update them to be dynamic! Thanks

**NEW MINOR FEATURES**

Two minor features I couldn't put anywhere else, now you can see the breakdown of unit battlescore in the troop report screen thanks to /u/nolat and there is dynamic text for the mercenary screen now that hopefully clears it up for some who don't click into the mercenary groups under the premise they'll have to pay to do it.

* Added new dynamic battlescore breakdown in troop report (for all troops including independent randomly generated ones) (credit u/Nolat)
* Added new dynamic intro text for mercenary screen

**MONSTER TRAINER UPDATE IMPROVEMENTS**

Nothing major but I've added additional variation for the monster hunting expedition, now it's more random and some groups dynamic text will give them a higher chance of success.

* Added 3 new additional possible dialogues for sending troops on monster capture expedition
* Added some dialogues will result in higher success rates from capturing a monster with no casualties

**CLIMBING ASCENDED**

Was playing recently and had to do the climb up Saaroth and thought the system and
it's presentation were a little lackluster, now there are full sound effects and
new screens making the climbing more of an event!

* Added new screen for mount saaroth climb
* Added sound effects to mount saaroth climb
* Added new troop loss/discover indicators for saaroth climb
* Added new screen for canyon climb
* Added sound effects to canyon climb
* Added new troop loss/discover indicators for canyon climb

* Reworked animal fight pit bet screen to show your gold and the max bettable gold

* Added 7'227'364'320'000 new possible orc faces (7 trillion)

* Added new dynamic intro text to knightly order hall
* Added new screen for leader of knightly order being chosen

I thought of this as a joke and then decided to put it in regardless, if you have a court jester you can pay 100 gold for this but be warned… it won't be easy to play with, every move you make, every step you take, a big royal band will play for you.

* Added ability to pay 100 gold to your court bard to have a trumpet group follow you around and play for every action you make (warning: guarenteed to be unplayable with the sound on for more than 10 minutes)

* Added new graphic to save game screens
* Fixed save game screens spacing and text colour

**TROOP BUYING/SELLING SCREEN REWORKED**

**THE GOBLIN SLAVER EXPANDED**

While looking into the goblins and goblin slavery being banned I realised how flat and shallow the goblin slaver is, it's just a line of text and a random price cost of goblins set at each game start, I figured it could be far far more dynamic and interactive and so I spent the last two days making it just that. Now the goblin slaver isn't just some line of text, it's a real character with their own personality, battlescore, face, and name. You have a relationship with them that can grow and earn you bonuses and each goblin slaver will be different from the last with their own combination of a trait and their battlescores effect, meaning you might find a slaver giving his goblins away, or one selling them for 1000 gold each, or perhaps he's selling a bunch of humans painted green, it's all possible now!

* Added goblin slavers capturing ability tethered to their battlescore
* Added new type of goblin slaver (recruiter) More goblins each turn
* Added new type of goblin slaver (penny pincher) pays you half tribute
* Added new type of goblin slaver (generous) pay you twice tribute
* Added new type of goblin slaver (berserk) instead of selling normal goblins, sells berserkers (but has less slaves)
* Added new type of goblin slaver (mercantile) goblins twice as expensive, tribute is twice as much too
* Added new type of goblin slaver (discounted) goblins twice as cheap, tribute half as much
* Added new type of goblin slaver (coin collector) goblins cost 1 gold each
* Added new type of goblin slaver (misvalued) goblins cost 1000 gold each, tribute is 4x as much
* Added new type of goblin slaver (giver) goblins are free, cannot gain relation, captures less goblins
* Added new type of goblin slaver (berserk and cheap) goblins are berserkers and cost 1 gold each
* Added new type of goblin slaver (slaver) "goblins" are actually human slaves painted green
* Added new type of goblin slaver (efficient) can store 10x as many goblins
* Added new type of goblin slaver (stable) guarenteed at least half of the max capturable goblins each turn instead of full rng
* Added new goblin slaver slot in diplomacy screen
* Added ability to talk to goblin slaver with dynamic dialogue based on stats
* Added chance to gain relation with goblin slaver +1 for every 100 goblins bought (max 100 relation)
* Added global goblin slaver relationship that if hits -100 no goblin slavers will ever come again
* Added ability to have goblin slaver executed (-20 global relationship)
* Added 1015 Cheat (spawn new goblin slaver)
* Added 1016 Cheat (set slavers trait to specific trait from list)
* Added 1017 Cheat (adds 1000 goblin slaves to slavers ranks)
* Now goblin recruitment is based on the lands of Krut and Erak instead of Aslona Lands (so less goblins will be available if you annihilate the goblin clans)
* Added alternate dynamic graphics for goblin berserkers (5 graphics)
* Added alternate dynamic graphics for recruiting slaves painted green (5 graphics)
* Added 1 in 6 chance of goblin hunter fleeing from being hunted by goblin warlord
* Added 1 in 6 chance of goblin revolt (depending how many goblins held)
* Added 1 in 6 chance of goblin slaver being replaced by competitor
* Added full dialogues for goblin slaver (4 questions with dynamic responses)
* Added chance of +2 berserkers gift each year depending on personal relationship with slaver
* Added chance of +2 goblins gift each year depending on personal relationship with slaver
* Added chance of +half standard tribute gift each year depending on personal relationship with slaver
* Added if max relationship then you will get one of the above gifts each year

**BANDIT KING IMPROVEMENT**

I was looking through my to-do list and spotted this feature concept, it makes sense too, as a bandit king you will now recruit a mix of soldiers and bandits (mostly bandits) each turn unless you declare forceful enlistment.

* Added playing as bandit king will give you soldiers and bandits as recruits each turn

**GOBLIN DESERTION REWORK**

It was brought to my attention that the goblin desertion events were happening even with slavery banned, I checked and it was the same for celebrations too, I think it shouldn't be this way so now its fixed and there are new positive events to take its place.

* Made goblin desertion events 50x rarer if you have goblin slavery banned (credit Chara66613)
* Made goblin desertion events 50x rarer if you have goblin celebraiton (credit Chara66613)
* Made goblin desertion events 9999x rarer if you have both goblin celebration and slavery banned (credit Chara66613)
* Added small goblin joining pack end of turn event (if goblin celebration active and goblin slavery banned)

**SPONTANEOUS TOURNAMENTS**

Tournaments are fun and so is the Arena, but for some players tournaments are a far off concept they won't get to see, I thought it would only be fair if the independent arena owners occasionally went and ran their own tournament, so now in the early game you may notice that a tournament is underway and the arena wont function as it normally does, I've also expanded tournaments a little bit with a new introductory screen.

* Added new intro for declaring a tournament
* Added ability for arena not held by the player to hold tournaments too (1 in 6 chance each year)
* Added new pre-tournament text for arena owner dynamic depending on their personality
* Updated layout of bet screen in tournaments

**NEW NAMES**

Not as many as the last update but added a couple more names to keep things fresh.

* Added 5 new faction name generator parts
* Added 10 new female character names
* Added 10 protofolk names

**THE LUCKY GNOME**

What started as a small idea to expand the blackmarket stalls became a multi-pathed questline that took me hours to put in, make sure you swing by and see it for yourself, but beware the consequences.

* Added new mini questline (with multiple diverse outcomes and dynamic systems) 'The Lucky Gnome'
* Added new dynamic change to blackmarket gallows depending on outcome of quest
* Added new economic stagnation effect to blackmarket depending on outcome of quest
* Added new sound effect 'Gnome Squeeze'

**BUGFIXES**

A couple of bugfixes, mainly catching up with missed parts of the last gender update though I feel there are probably some more nested about!

* Fixed 'one true king' intro text error (credit u/Nighteye424)
* Fixed grammar issues in intro court event
* Fixed another king reference in intro text
* Fixed intro text grammar issue
* Fixed bluetrii stand buying and selling layout
* Fixed bluetrii stall owner having blue skin bug
* Fixed cruel ways to rule book visible even before bought (credit KlickPy from Discord)
* Fixed Arena grand champ beaten in a tournament doesn't get his tourney wins counted on his hall of fame record
* Fixed trumpet fail sound effect not working

**EVERYTHING ELSE**

* Added 8 circle flag parts to the faction flag generator
* Added rare chance the recruitment screen main graphic shows an alternate graphic

Day four of the develop-a-thon, today brings a feature I'm in love with, the custom champion creator! This is no joke either, this is real full blown customisation of your own heroes, check this out

* https://i.imgur.com/IfvqYUY.png
* https://i.imgur.com/QfDNCXj.png

**CUSTOM CHAMPION CREATOR**

This was a suggestion by a real life friend of mine who plays warsim, something I can't believe I haven't thought of yet, it allows you to create a custom hero, you can draw/generate or build their face, choose their battlescore, name and origin and then add them to your game, this allows for completely personal champions!

* Added cheat code '6001' opens custom champion creator (credit Dylan)

**LAUNCHING ATTACK PREP IMPROVED**

Finally this pre-attack stuff is updated to fit with the rest of the games design, I've also made the text a little more dynamic and fixed some bugs with it!

* Added 3 new generals dialogues for launching an invasion
* Fixed spymaster before battle textwrap, grammar and misreference of title
* Fixed text colour issue of general text before attacking

* Fixed old forgetful vampire text bugs
* Added new screen for demon painting in Blacktower maze

**NEW FACES**

Now we have a billion possible vampires!

**NEW NAME SUFFIXES**

**THE DEVELOP-A-THON IS OVER**
-
Thank you everyone who's been suggesting ideas, commenting, and supporting me! When I told a friend of this challenge in a pub last week I was told it would be harder than I thought, and it was! it's been a lot of work but I'm glad it's been done, some of the stuff that's come out of this weeks series of updates has definitely improved the game and I've loved the input from everyone!

This will most likely not be the last time Warsim get's a Develop-a-thon!
