New dialogs and how rank system inflluences gameplay.

Dialogs. First of all it concerns "greetings" of different groups of units. Having no neutral units (hostile to everyone), with exception of skeletons, bandits and wandering champions, the reaction of different warbands will depend on faction the player belongs to, for example:Chaos player meeting raiders:

Rank defines in what way wandering groups greet player, but that's not all. The higher player's rank the more features available in general, including unique options in dialogs. For example, Chaos player with the highrest rank will be able to join wandering zealots to his party without any limitations, which will allow him to use them as cannon fodder during sieges etc.

Another partially done feature - additional rank "Coward" for chaos player. It's main purpose is to make player's life much harder, for cowards are not to be respected by anybody. Lords will deny speaking to coward, and wandering groups will laught at him. There're some obvious ways to become a coward, like refuse to duel with anybody or flee from a battlefield.

Duels and afterlife.

Duels. Simple as it is - you can challenge every enemy lord for a duel. Providing you won and your opponent's party morale waslow enough, you can decide what to do with his army, e.g. let them go or fight them (in this case they get a severe morale debuff). For every duel won player gets quarter of his opponent renown.

If opponent's party morale is high you'll have fight them anyway, but the morale debuff won't be absent.

If you die in a duel (or in a battle or somewhere else) you'll transform in a a skeleton. At first it won't be the most intresting feature of the mod as skeleton won't be able to visit cities\villages\castles, talk to lords and do other stuff people do, but with further development it gives a great possibility to add third quest line for undead player. But for now undead player will be able to join wandering skeleton parties to his army and plunder stuff.

It's the morale system feature. If you're hit to hard but still alive, your char can run away.

Why not? Morale is also affected by the number of dead allies and enemies around player.

It just sounds a little annoying having your guy randomly cheese it mid-fight. If i was going to run away it would be because i actually need to, not because my dude got a little love tap. It's always funny watching some ai run for the hills but in multiplayer it becomes enraging losing complete control of your guy.

Yep, it's not dead, and we're working on it. But it's not much to show, I mean models and such. We're mostly focusing on scripts.
