Here is an updated build. The rework of the hero/follower code is finally complete. There is a bit of improvement on the UI, still need to rename a lot of the references to “followers” and “heroes” – they are all just “characters” now, and have the same code and mechanics. The new task and assignment system also had a lot of work and is almost functional – a bunch of new assignment options are in, with requirements checking, assignability, etc, but the mechanics providing the benefits (income, combat bonuses, strategic modifiers, events, etc.) still need work.
Hopefully it will be a lot more clear in the next build, and better UI for this and some other areas will be a main focus in the next couple of builds.
