_______________________________________________

Heroes:

Thieves were in a weird spot.
They shared Scouting with their nature allies, and they also shared melee with their Death might allies.
This is all about to change.
By giving Chaos (one of the weaker armies) access to Nobility (with the secondary effect of Nature also getting it by hiring Chaos heroes), this is also a balance act.
Now all factions can get Nobility heroes, though the Order ones are the only ones that also start with Diplomacy and Estates (thus giving basic income unlike Chaos ones)

* Impostors (formerly Thieves):
– Loses Basic Melee
+ Gains Basic Nobility.
* Changed skill level-up weight.
Notes: Impostors impersonate nobles and other royalty. They are also able criminal ringleaders. Now they are the only scout-based class.
* Modified images in combat (look like Chaos Nobles.)

* Outlaws (formerly Travelers):
– Loses Basic Scouting.
+ Gains Basic Melee.
* Changed skill level-up weight.
Notes: This also keeps the wheel more balanced by not having the two Might Melee heroes be in “allied factions”.

This change may be sus to some, but I’m confident it will lead towards a more balanced game.
