  1. Great to see this from the other side! I hadn't realized it was you who pulled me, that was a great pull! I was totally caught off guard. At the time, I was trying to say that we should form a defense on top of that rock outcropping to the right. But, alas, we just didn't have enough time before you guys hit us. Great job in the fight. We definitely outnumbered you guys, and you still won.
  2. The corridor was adorned with tapestries depicting past battles. Thimble always loved walking through the Hall of Battle. Busts of vessels wielded by heroes of the Citadel dotted the walls as well, each one placed carefully on a pedestal that Stoneborn had shaped and grown out of the walls themselves. Coming to a large set of doors, Thimble pushed them open and entered the chamber beyond. The War Room was large and circular, with several cylindrical tables that were designed to be moved around the room to mimic the configuration of one of the many worlds they visit before the Hunger destr
  3. Actually, this play style sounds like a ton of fun. If I wasn't super busy I'd probably try it out. I imagine there will be no shortage of applicants, so successful merc groups will be able to pick the best, especially if they establish a good rep early on and keep it. In that way, staying small would actually be an advantage.
  4. Do you mean like outside of campaigns? I expect that a successful small mercenary group could definitely have assets. They're going to be making money as well as exporting stuff from campaigns just like anyone else. There will also be public marketplaces where they will be able to get anything they want made, I'm sure. So a group with a lot of coin wouldn't necessarily have to have the same level of logistics as a more all-for-one-and-one-for-all big guild would.
  5. I've been thinking about this ever since a small group came to us and wanted to run with Corvus Citadel without actually joining. I think there absolutely is a place in Crowfall for small guilds. Most obviously is the mechanic mentioned early on where a guild could pledge itself to another guild. I'm not sure how that'll actually work, but I look forward to further design discussion. But aside from that, small groups will thrive as sort of mercenaries, hiring their whole group out to help with Dregs or other campaign types. I imagine that if there's a small group that makes a good name for the
  6. Mysterious link in a post about Trojans with broken English. No thanks.
  7. Did you make this? You should win War Stories hands down. Just awesome.
  8. Alright, I feel like I have to step in here. When SmokinJoker mentions numbers, he's not talking about in one zone; obviously that would be silly because Chaos and Order combined were about 45 people, so the most Balance could have had in the last fight was 55, and it's likely to have been 10 or so less because of random gatherers and spies. Balance has shown regularly that they can field enough to put up a strong defense at two keeps. 100 may be an exaggeration, but I certainly don't think it's more than double the reality. The truth probably lies in between somewhere. That said, pr
  9. A cold wind stirred above the white snow. It swirled and eddied before finding its way to the precipice, coalescing into an invisible wave as it tumbled over the edge. Down it went, leaving the peak in its wake, flowing around trees as it descended. When it reached the bottom, it sped out from the base of the mountain, heading south, losing intensity as it ran into obstacle after obstacle. Finally, nearly depleted in strength, the last tendrils reached out before dying and managed to barely move a banner on the walls of the Sunset Keep. Dark eyes surrounded by fur took notice of the movem
  10. The best feature is Campaigns. This one feature sets Crowfall apart from other similar sandbox territory control games. However, the Crowfall community is the best thing overall about the game. Enemies even have respect for each other, several of our enemies post friendly messages on our Discord almost every day. The smack talking isn't really that toxic, especially compared with other games. Several times I've seen people on opposing factions compliment the guild I'm in, and I've seen lots of positive interactions between individuals as well. A few months ago, when we were finally gettin
  11. News from the front had reached Thimble mere moments ago. He had been busy helping run things at the Citadel and had been unable to help the war effort aside from the occasional flight into the Trial of Kane to quickly craft armor before he had to return. Raising the White Crow had proven to be a more difficult affair than anticipated, but the results would be worth it. As for the news from the front lines, it had been good, to say the least. In the face of overwhelming odds, three small groups of Corvus Citadel forces had managed to secure two keeps from the Winterblades and their vassal
  12. I actually love the game in the current state. I'm so excited for every patch to come, while at the same time enjoying the game for what it is until then. The patches are coming at a pretty good pace, too - about every 3-4 weeks. There are a couple of big changes coming that I think will dramatically improve things, like the character controller. Population, like srathor said, is usually a few hundred during peak times. It can drop down to only a few dozen at off peak times. During keep sieges, the zone cap of 100 is regularly hit in at least one zone and sometimes more than one, so there
  13. I love my Confessor, but I stopped playing it because of Elementalist. One siege I was in I swear I healed the enemy more than I hurt them. I'm playing a different class until something changes. Confessor just isn't viable right now.
  14. Well I've beaten you wearing greens, so not sure where the elitism comes from. But yeah, we have one piece of legendary, which counts for crafting legendary gear.
  15. Corvus Citadel had a great time last wipe. It was extremely exciting, and when the wipe hit we hit the ground running and had a ton of fun blitzing everything. We've been talking excitedly internally about a wipe for weeks now, we can't wait for it to happen. Like I said, we'd prefer a total skills wipe, and our theory is that it's coming - mainly because it's been long enough now that people are max on crafting. But we're even excited about just a gear wipe, even though we've crafted legendary gear. That journey has been exciting, and we look forward to the next. If you adopt the mindset that
