Reply To: Failed early ambitions

I don´t really like this timed mechanic at all. Why force the player into a way to play the game if it is the player choice that was intended to be emphasised?

Ambitions is a nice thing to have. Once you choose one you have that ambition and nothing else. Let it be infinite. The way i understand it fullfilling the ambition should be some kind of reward for doing a good job but the way it is right now it feels like a damocles sword over your head in the early game when you have to take an ambition.

Maybe offer the possibility to change it after a longer time without success (this change in plans may then lead to a small morale drop – which is something a player would only choose if he realises he cannot fullfill the current ambition any time soon).
