LOVE THIS GAME! Big Kudos to all the devs that made this happen. I'd like to see a highly customizable character creation system be put in place in future updates, with things like facial/body creation, gender, race/species. Also maybe in the future we can take part in battles/sieges as well as lead followers/minions.
