2) Rock paper shotgun seems to think that 1403 is somehow the end of the HRE.

Yeah, that had me scratching my head. I looked at the pic and said "It doesn't LOOK like an RPG set in the Napoleonic era." Although that would be awesome too. Also, some other guy said "more like the end of the Middle Ages," which I also took issue with.

  Well, I'm all for a game that tries to do something with Central Europe in 1403.  But why as an RPG?  The funny thing about RPGs is that a role is the last thing you have.  You spend the whole game (such as in Skyrim) looking for a role.  I'd be nice if you just got a role the way CK2 does it.

But not much hope of that.  It will be 1403 more or less, but you'll be spending all your time trying to find the right shoes or learning how to repair hats.

Why not an RPG?

I get the impression that they're shooting for something akin to Mount & Blade.  Which is an Action-Strategy-RPG of sorts and a good game. 

Which reminds me.. I need to do some more M&B: Napoleonic Wars multiplayer.   Soooo fun.

  I liked Mount and Blade, but (unlike other RPGs where a role is not something you ever quite have) in Mount and Blade you led a band of quasi-mercenaries IIRC.  If I get to lead a band of armed ruffians in 1403, I will be perfectly happy, but if I have to wade through a lot of wonderful storyline to do that, I'm going to be pretty resigned to being annoyed as per usual in an RPG.

   I can imagine the story now -- You are a happy shoe-maker in Ulmph.  There is tension in Umph between X and Y.  Your uncle warns you about X and gives you a sword and some training.  You run into some nasty X people.  You save a (blank) from the X people.  The X people are after you.  Your uncle gives you a horse and a really crappy suite of crappy armor.  You join the Y people.  They are just as nasty as the X people etc.
   I' rather just skip all that and pop into the game as a reasonably well-trained and well -armed member of the gentry who knows the X y and Z people are all nasty and is as potentially just as nasty as they are.

Just curious, did anyone ever end up backing this game in the Kickstarter....looks like you can still pledge...saw some info they expect the first alpha version in October, for those that pledge a certain level....thinking about jumping in before then, but haven't seen much more.

Meant to include this live stream of the game, seems pretty cool...

Saw this posted on their FaceBook page explaining release timing of the game....

"Alpha September/October 2014, Beta Q3 2015, release Q4 2015. Thank you for your support!"

Seems like a long way too go on this one.....have to say I am pretty tempted jumping in for the Alpha, but I have a few months to decide:)

  Well, the trebuchets alone are too good to pass up.  I'll get some big pistols (like Howtizer, pistol is supposedly a Hussite word, or at least invention) and an adze or an axe or an adxe or mattock and make do with those.  If the Alpha turns up...I'm in there too.

I'll happily wait til it's fully patched and playable, but it does still look like one to get.

Looks like October 22nd is the day for alpha release....this will be made available to people who back the game, I believe for $45...another video below.

I am very close to pulling the trigger on this one....a game without magic and dragons in medieval times, exactly what I would want.
