The stone walls all have battlements, right? You don't have to stick all your archers in an arrow tower or anything?
Oh, and is it possible to construct pallisades as a player? Those small openings are pretty nice to stall if you have to. If it's only availiable for some NPC towns...ah well.
Once again, the snow blows me away. Which gives m yet another (last one!) question: How do seasons work? Is it actually particular to the current season in a certain part of the world, or do you guys have some sort of game calender?
Doubtless some of those have been answered, so sorry. But I haven't seen the answers yet. Just curious.
