    So the two main points I got from that is that they are aiming to get sieges working in alpha 1 and that alpha 1 pack will be open for people to buy. All I can say is alpha 1 hype time!!

    The dead do not squabble as this land’s rulers do. The dead have no desires, petty jealousies or ambitions. A world of the dead is a world at peace

    We need a total revamp on races/characters. In my OPINION, they are very bland and similar. Dwarf is very thin and just seems like a human that just got played with the height meter. Great letter though!

    To be continued.

    I'm pretty sure they said they have listened to the feedback and the dwarves would be remodelled. Nothing to worry about.

    Mmm I thought that’s what was mentioned, until he said that, unless that last picture posted with the dwarf in armour is the intent, worried now 😅

    The letter certainly generates the hype. Looking forward to improvements.
    Would love to see more races.

    I agree. Imagine playing as a sexy vampire. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
    Also, your comment gives me some vibes from the Overlord anime.

    Hi everyone,

    In my personal opinion, all races should be made more unique. At the moment it unfortunately looks like a model has only been changed in size and equipped with a few changes. Much more unique models of the races that differ much more would be desirable. Just more fantasy.

    Not just shiny armors that all look like "humans".
