Abomination : Hit points increased from 1475 to 1575. Alliances : None. I do not want the Nerubian path to be good, it'll still be there for those who want to try, but it will never be good. Reason is that if it is appealing and scourge decides to betray and joins Forsaken, Cult will end up with no ally. Even if it was a solo path and Cult is left to be able to join Forsaken, Forsaken could have already chosen another path. Scourge and Cult are too dependent on each other. There will be no paths that allow one to leave the other while he is still in the game. Final note We've been experiencing many crashes in the editor, and because of that, this version doesn't contain all that we wanted to include. You'll find some unfinished works like Honor Hold that have no events attached to it. After the release of 1.29, I worked only to provide the bare minimum for a playable version, and it still took me a long time as there are many changes I had to implement over and over. We'll stop for some time until we figure out how to fix these crashes. Then work will resume as usual. There will still be hotfixes and some balance versions 1.54a..etc that change only numbers.
