The next expansion for Ironfell - Regal Realms is still a week or two away, the super awesome illustrator is currently sick, so be patient with him. :)
The purpose of the Regal Realms expansion is to introduce Policed Realms.
The current realm permissions are:
Private – Only the owner can build or move units into this type of realm. Each users home valley is set to private.
Public – These are safe public realms, anyone can move or build but nobody can attack. Lobby realms are set to public.
PVP – Dangerous, anyone can move, build and attack anywhere. These realms typically have more resources than the other types.
And the new type is:
Policed – Anyone can build, move or attack in this realm. Except the owner of the realm can not be attacked, they are the police and they are invincible within this realm.
Hopefully you’ll think up interesting uses for these policed realms, mazes or combat arena but you’ll definitely use them as bases to launch attacks from. Users have already started talking about the possibilities in the forums: Ironfell.freeforums.org
There’s going to be a new terrain type – Stone Floor. It will be used inside castle realms as the outline / floor plan for the castle.
And here are the new units:
- Stone Walls
- Keep* (aka Small Castle)
- Castle (aka Large Castle)
- Stone Trap
- Stone Gate (to leave a castle)
* A keep is technically the central tower inside a castle. But I can’t find a good word for small castle, and Carrack and Cog while being correct, were confusing. So I’m going to call these small castles Keeps, and the large ones Castles.
