Hello, I dont know if someone allready has asked this question.

I was wondering if you play as an elf is it possible that you can attack a human castle that is controlled by an Npc? and if you can, will there be any side effeckts to the players that are humans if an Npc town gets burned?:p

There will probably be elf quests where you need to deal with a human town.

NPC = non player character

Non-Player Character, basically just AI. Usually used in RPGs and similar genres, to denote other (esp. humanoid) storyline characters.
Darn, JAL, you beat me. Silly Jally-Wally.

Currently there are two skirmish modes in Dawn of Fantasy, Attack and Defend.
With Defend you start off building up your castle town. Gathering resources, building up units and finally your castle walls.
In Attack, you are given a fairly massive amount of troops and siege equipment and attack a fully manned castle.

So, in short, Rykan, yes it is possible to be Elves and attack NPC humans.

I think he was talking about the mmo mode, at least that's what I assumed. :/

Part of the storyline in the elven quest if a full-on war between human and elven realms. So you`ll get your share of siegeing human strongholds there.

One idea we have for the late game-content is for opposite races to mount the attack against other races capital city. Sort of an Epic quest.

so there will not be any mode where both players and AI build their towns?

I don't think in the MMO version, but there should be some type of offline skirmish that you would be able to do, you know, a quick battle against an AI or having an AI partner.

Hmm I would have assumed NPC towns were a give in, Even in MMO.

1. To create buffer zones between you and another player.

2. To give you land to annex without having to start of with immediate pvp.


Well I guess things will be interesting in beta...

Currently we have no all-purpose AI. We will see if there is time for it.

It seemed like to me that he was asking if there were npc towns in the MMO part of the game, and it wasn't directly addressed, or answered. :confused:

It has been answered a few times...

We have no all-purpose AI, meaning that we do not have AI that can build towns, utilize resources, and battle at the same time. It may be added if there is time; we do already have some task-specific AIs.
