A bunch of bugfixes in this release. Can’t remember all of them, to be honest, but there were a few crashbugs and some bugs related to followers. New recruits are now generated by your towns and fortresses. Wizards with the Warmonger trait gain additional recruits. Started work on attaching followers as companions to Heroes and setting up Heroic Fellowships. Also improved some of the language/name generation code.
