I continued work on the new faction today, and focused on some of the wearable equipment they have. Similar to DMC guards, it helps to visually distinguish someone based on their clothes, even if it's not 100% reliable. Plus, it means some new toys and customization options for players!
Here's what some of them will look like in the field:
Not all will look exactly like this, of course. But many may wear such clothes and carry recognizable decorations and tools. I still need to sort out their typical loadout list, then setup their spawn region.
After that, I think I'll have enough to work with to setup their trading post. I just remembered today that I'll need to create some conversations for them, too. Even just placeholders, as I'm sure you guys are getting anxious for a new build soon :)
Rest assured that I'm trying to assemble all these pieces as fast as I can. It'll be good to get your feedback on the new faction, lore, backstory, and items!
