Hey ho folks!

Today's Friday Update will give you leaks about our new, probably the most unique civ which will coming soon in the next quintessence. Ah, we forgot to explain that first. In the next quintessence, guess what, we will release, among others, three new civs, namely Spanish, Moors, and... jeng jeng jeng... MONGOLS!!!

Folk: Yay, new civ! But wait, why is it unique?

Nah, it is because Mongols have their own buildingset and their own culture! Honestly, Pepp still a bit perplexed with how their culture work. Therefore, Pepp asked Synecdoche, the best historian ever exist in mods, who explains me, barely, like this:

Mongol has three factions, they are [censored 1], [censored 2], and [censored 3]. In age I for example, you have 3 choices of age up politician from each faction. Once you choose one, for example [censored 1]'s, you'll get units and tech. However, if you choose the other faction onto age III, you'll get new unit and tech, but your unit from [censored 1] will stay unupgraded.

Why? Because you betrayed your faction. You got other units upgraded, but the unit from that faction would stay as it was.

And ah, enough for words, we will show you the censored Mongol unit which Robert leaked some moments ago, along with its original concept:

Yeah, currently only two Mongol units plus their lord have been done. And how about Moors'? All have been done except, the secret hash slinging strider... :shadow:

K&B salutes... The Return of the Anglophile, now he can access the forum with IE again, thanks to AOE_Fan.
K&B refutes... Our missing members and the void time since... no one know, there haven't been much thing done... :P

The textures are the same quality as others, it's just that the person who has taken those screenshots ingame hasn't got full resolution switched on.

it looks strange. nothing like an mongolian units or chinese or japanese units. just a mix of them but especially odd.

Well, as said in the Update, Mongols in K&B aren't just one nation but more of mix of several factions. It sounds a bit messy right now but once we get everything more finished, we'll reveal a bit more.
