After a bit of a delay, here is a new build featuring a rework of the quest system. The first quest I have implemented with the new system is a small intro chain for wizards, giving a few bonuses to mana, influence and gold as the tower is improved, initial research completed, a mana node is discovered, etc.
I am almost done with the hint/tutorial system, that should help introduce how the UI works. There is now a tooltip showing how much movement an army has left and how much it would cost to move into an adjacent hex. The mechanics controlling recruitment, summoning, binding and upkeep of regiments have been improved, and that should soon lead to a much better gameplay flow around building up armies. After the tutorial, I will be adding some ways to increase resource production and giving the followrs something to do. This should allow wizards to actually have the resources to recruit and summon armies without using the cheat menu.
More crash and display bugs have also been fixed.
