Question: Are we supposed to get experience from attacking and wiping out faction troops?

Questions:

1)  Is there a "maximum" differential set between an Alliance standing and a Personal for a given faction, i.e. for instance you can't expect to personally reach +50 for instance if your alliance's standing sits at -10 ??

2) Are your own cities locations or your alliance's cities locations or even your alliance capital's location at all impact faction standings?

3) Will some factions have monopolistic or otherwise privileged access to currently unavailable "tradable items" like Night Diamond, the "fruits", future unknown spell components etc...

4) Will faction quests in Elgea have also a timeline like it was suggested they would have on the new continent?

5) Will some kind of peaceful "parley" diplomacy be made available when interacting with factions? Will individual players or alliances be allowed for instance to send gifts to factions?

6) Will there be some kind of documented "War, Peace, Treaty" relationships between players' Alliances and factions?

7) Will there be "cascading" effects of players/alliance actions? In other words, if faction A hates faction B and you (and/or your alliance) kills some troops of faction B, will it trigger some change in faction A's standing toward you (or alliance)?

Thanks for taking the time in releasing this critical extension!

Be without fear in the face of your enemies. Be brave and upright, that God may love thee. Speak the truth always, even if it leads to your death. Safeguard the helpless and do no wrong.

According to the interview:

No report about faction encampments have been posted so far and I've found difficult to get one.
As I have one at least, here it is. It does not give many information, though.

No item was dropped.


Victorious battle against NPC units's forces at [-367|11] in Keppen by Sirius's forces from Cosmodrome

Two opposing forces clash against each other.

Cavalry comes into its own when able to strike hostile forces at will, and from unexpected directions - and nowhere is this more feasible than on open plains. Lightly armoured spear units, however, prefer terrain where there's some cover available.

Fighting defensively on open plains, cavalry draws strength from the ability to form and reform their lines of engagement depending on the direction of battle, and it is here where cavalry excels.

Cuirassiers
Human
Cavalry
The Duchy of Keppen believes that its Cuirassiers, less encumbered and more flexible than traditional human Knights, have rendered their knightly forebears archaic. The rest of Illyria remains unconvinced.

It's been a couple weeks, have any additional parts of the Faction AI been turned on?

Are all the factions active or just some factions?  Although I'm sure I could find some activity if I searched the entire map I haven't seen any faction activity in the region of my cities.  It's been a wee bit anticlimactic.

The latest I've heard about factions is that 10 are active and i've seen encampments stay several days.

They're working on a bug with at least one faction bumping harvesters. From what the devs say they're not suppose to be doing that.

Two opposing forces clash against each other.

Swordsmen, and especially cavalry, find attacking into very mountainous terrain difficult - although ranged units can excel.

Narrow passes and gulleys hinder any mounted units' ability to defend adequately. Nimble spear units have no such worries here, and defending bowmen are able to use their height advantage to maximum effect.

Attackers: Unit: Quantity: Casualties: Survivors:
Commander: Glennister Longride Charioteers Charioteer 1 Damaged for 19, 181 health remains.

Defenders: Unit: Quantity: Casualties: Survivors:

Armed Slaves
Human
Spearunit
Children captured by the barbarians are put to hard and gruelling work. Many die as forced labourers, or are killed by capricious masters. Those who live are offered the chance to prove themselves equal 'in strength and cruelty' to their captors. Armed with simple spears, they are set to defensive duties. Those who disappoint or rebel are put to death; most are killed in battle... but the few who excel are given their freedom.

Warborn

Infantry
Bloodmarked Warriors who survive a few battles not only develop superior fighting skills but also learn the advantages of discipline, restraint, and a little armour. Their fellows say that, clearly, they are born to war. Cynics suggest that more simply, they were lucky enough to survive and learn from their earlier recklessness behaviour.
