After hearing about this game and the wonderful features that is going to be introduced to this game such as skill-based crafting, and living in the medieval sandbox world, I’ve purchased the 40 dollar Baron title and backed this game because of how many of these features remind me of Mount & Blade with improved features and Better High Definition Graphics that has many potential things that can be added into the game.
Player Housing should be in this game for many obvious reason, We live in an medieval world where we have many roles, we can become craftsmen, carpenter, soldier, mason, farmer, priest, and other common roles that we play in the medieval world. We citizens of a nation, should be able to buy land and be able to build our homes via crafting resources, or buy a home that is not occupied. Player Housing is great for people to give a reason to spend some time doing something other then fighting other nation’s army and hunting down bandits, such as decorating, buying crafting station and turn our home into a business which npc’s come by and purchase my crafted goods and catching thieves that steal from me.
I strongly recommend that the developers should implement a strong housing system that I just previously talked about or better, many games including mmo’s are allowing us to have free customization, decorations, and vital improvements in player housing, such as Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, Everquest Next: Landmark, Kenshi, Wildstar, and World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor, Fable, and more. I really don’t see any strong reason to not add any player housing into the game unless the game itself is linear by default.
Taxes has always been a major role in modern and ancient times for many reason’s, the lords and kings uses war taxes to fund the major campaign against a nation, taxes increases and decreases every now and then depending how things are doing in our nation that we live in. Taxes are used by the lord or king to fund things he needed such as mustering troops, keep them supplied, maintain the army, improve the economy, and many more. Taxes helps when prices rises and lowers for the market, when citizens buy their bread, buy their clothes, merchant comes and buy goods and sell them off somewhere that is in demand, and sometimes certain taxes that are too high for them can cause citizens to panic or riot when it is outrageous and causes the nation to poorly be developed if it’s not used for the right things.
This is great for people who want to be the role of a merchant, buying goods that are cheap in the realm and selling it to other nations that are in demand, it causes the market to not be so static with the same price, and actually helps out the town if it’s put to good use. The Supply and Demand system, the property taxes that I have to pay if I bought land and/or a home that belongs to that nation, and causes positive and negative effects that I could witness the city is booming or busting, and see how the citizens will react by rioting if the taxes are way too high or a max exodus to leave the city and move out to somewhere cheaper.
