(thanks for the Lets Play BTW)

Just seems there should be more of a use for such a ubiquitous weapon.


I think you’re right about needing to have the right skills to use it, but perhaps some recruits should come with one skill, linked to their background. That way, your cheap ‘escaped murder’ would come with sack cloth and a knife, poor stats but otherwise be good-to-go right out of the box (in at least one situation, otherwise he’s just an orc speed hump).


Yes, as i’d like to see the game playable as a lightly armed group of footmen as much as a heavy group of men-at-arms (that are afraid of riding).
