Legion-Brotherhood conflict (lore)
I'm going to outline the plan for this here because all these plans have existed for too long in passing conversations ansd without a written record. Everything here is subject to change depending on developers' needs and wants.
The Legion controls every city in Aemil (Artis, Esperia, Voile'nolen, etc.) The Brotherhood only controls Hurnscald and Nivalis. Tulimshar is run by the local branch of the Thieves guild after the Brotherhood was unable to keep control over the Tonori desert area.
The player can ally either the Legion or the Brotherhood and help them expand their control over other cities/regions. Most of the area would still look the same, but the administrative buildings (like the Legion building in Artis and the Townhall in Hurnscald) would be instanced and NPCs inside would change.
There are two ways to do this:
- Every player has their own tag which determines who controls the city from their perspective
- City control is the same for everyone and it can change in a weekly PvP event that puts Legion-allied players VS Brotherhood-allied players
