I’m not expecting 'SJW’s haunting this forum but just in case this is a ‘trigger warning’. As a disclaimer I believe in that everyone is equal and everyone deserves to be judged individually not by heritage or associated natural group.
Now that that’s over with I’d like to ask the team or informated people on gender and race controversy. Whilst taking a break from playing I was thinking, will there be any controversy as described in history?
Doing a little research I found out that slavery first became a popular thing in the early 17th century. In short term there would be no reason to include africans. Next on the list is women which from what I’ve been informed by every history class about the middle ages I ever took that they only had submissive roles in medieval-european society, being limited to becoming a maid (or prostitute?) in most cases.
What I personally would really like to see is dialogues that make clear the sole role people believed women had around these times along with enforced christian beliefs. Having the option to convince people that you are not a christian and for this earning the status of heretic (with dramatic consequences) would be very immersive in a medieval society such as you claim to be basing this game around.
With all that said I am a financial backer and you have so far made me very happy with the game. I’m looking forward to getting to play the game in its full glory later this year!
