Jeff Spock, Narrative Director at Amplitude Studios, returned again today, bring with him a second focus video, this time providing an overview of the 8 factions in Endless Legend. Not only did this give us nice bits of lore and serve as a great introduction to the game, but it also gave us our first official hints and teaser of The Cultists of the Eternal End.
TL:DW Version? Okay, if you insist… –
Vaulters – High Technology and Good Defense
Wild Walkers – Good Ranged Units and Fast Building. Expansionist.
Broken Lords – Do not use Food. Asymmetrical. More dependent on Dust.
Necrophages – Cannot Use Diplomacy. Gain Population through Warfare.
Roving Clans – Commerce based. Can exert some control over the Marketplace (the shared ‘auction house’ and ‘mercenary hiring house’)
Ardent Mages – No gameplay hints, but Jeff Spock did mention there is a lore connection between the Ardent Mages and Virtual Endless. “Not an accidental occurence.”
The Drakken – Diplomatic Power. Can force treaties on other Factions.
The Cultists of the Eternal End – Community Made Faction. Only has one city. Extend power through minor factions.
