DiscreetPenguin @ A Clash of Kings 2.0 - Low Resolution Version

Question, Cozur: Why is it that Gregor Clegane can be executed? Specifically him? Is it a bad decision to add in the execution option for any captured lord, aside from people screwing up their gameworld by wiping out factions? I don't think that'd take away from the realism, per se.

DiscreetPenguin @ The Reckoning : For M&B

The dog is technically a mount, and since in some instances mounts aren't allowed then the mount's rider (who is invisible so the dog "mount" appears to be just a dog) has to go on foot. That, or the mount was killed but the rider survived to fight on foot. Kind of a spotty system, but it works in some instances.

Apparently not every inch. Look around in a decent radius from Hilltop Farm on the global map, you'll find it. It'll pop up like a bandit hideout in Native.

We'll balance the faction trees. For example, Elves will have better spellcasters, but fewer of them, whereas human nations like Surda will have weaker spellcasters but higher numbers all-around, and stronger in different areas. The Ra'zac are few in number and allied with Galbatorix at the mod's start, but not all are so loyal. Nothing stops you from joining with Galbatorix, if you so choose.

Depends on your machine, I'd say. I run it fine on a three-year old laptop with practically no RAM or disc space. I'd guess you'll run it better: I've never met anyone worse than myself.

This is playable on Warband. Multiplayer may end up being Napoleonic Wars-dependent too, but I'm not sure about that one.

Scening is my vote. That's the foremost obstacle, in my opinion.

Best estimate, from what I've seen/experienced, is anywhere from day 300-500. Enjoy waiting that long. :P

My question, Cozur. You said there were two more Valyrian swords, in one of your recent tweets. I've played through all of these quests and the only one I've found is Blackfyre. Are the others carried by people, or am I not looking hard enough?

It's near Rosby, I think. He's not an actual vassal nor is it a real castle, rather a scenario that pops up. Look for the name of the place in white lettering.

Bastard sword, not a longsword. It's perfectly feasible with a bastard sword.

No worries about the spelling, man. I only rag on native speakers about it. :P

Yeah, I agree with most of that. I'm not entirely sure I'd say that Blood in the West is good work - looked great on paper, but needed some tuning last I played it. I think anticipation is a proper thing to have going, but I personally am happy to wait longer to get the best possible version. I dunno, it's honestly up to them what they do. I'm gonna continue to support Jarvy and expect only improvements out of him. I agree wholeheartedly that people should not expect the alpha to be released exactly on time, and hype it to perfection.

What do you mean, it's unfair to Ivanhoe? That he's not getting the popularity?

I've tried it as stated earlier. It sorta broke my game. Nothing major, but it messed with a couple names in the menus and who controlled what. Just a caveat.

The role shouldn't really change, because up until ASOS (the current season) the Dornish don't really have any role at all. There's no role he can really give them.

DiscreetPenguin @ The Veiled Stars - Lord of the Rings

I've been desperate for good conversation, let's see what we can do with this.

I've seen better mods, that's without question. No, I would not say this is a great mod at the moment. It's a great mod in the works, but I logged about one hour in the very first build and haven't returned since - even that was the custom battles. My thirst was sated, and now I can wait patiently. The single player itself was average at best, I agree. The important part was that you can see the effort is there, as is the makings of a great mod.

As a wise man once told me, when one tells someone else they're ignorant for holding a certain opinion, one is the ignorant. I won't downvote you, because I don't disagree. I believe that you're a bit harsh on people because of an opinion they're holding, but hey. Case and point.

Your turn.

DiscreetPenguin @ Valyrian face

They do, it's just not brightly violet. I know, hard to tell, but that's not something they'd omit.

Yeah, I dunno. If you look back at when Viserys was on the show, he also had dark eyebrows. Can't have been unintentional. Regardless, it's not game-changing to me.

DiscreetPenguin @ Valyrian face

This mod appears to be based visually from the TV show. If you look at the Targs in the show (the only current examples of Valyrians), they don't have white eyebrows. I'm assuming, because of this, that it was a conscious decision on Cozur's part.

Somewhere there's a download that helps you convert save files, but I tried it and it messed with my game. If yours is already screwed up, it won't get any better if you try it.

I'll give you a hint. It's not Daenerys. If I say anything more, it's major spoilers. Go read the books/look at the wiki and it'll all make sense.

Well, it's not 'entirely' Dany. Since Cozur overhauled it, she may be part of it, emphasis on 'may' and 'part'.

Let's all calm down here, gentlemen...start the debate somewhere else, where it makes sense to have it.

There any way you could make it so the trip to Meereen/Yunkai/Slaver's Bay can be repeated, so you can go back to Meereen/etc after the first time you leave? Also, the 'swearing my allegiance' thing with Daenerys doesn't do anything, is it supposed to?

For the time being, you could also just change the Mordor color to be darker. I remember the player faction to be a vivid red; Mordor could be maroon, that'd probably be a five-minute fix.
