Setup Changes Do Happen
#1
Newer players rarely say anything, but older players that have played for decades sometimes get startled when setups change for kingdoms.  We don't typically announce a change to a kingdom's setup, and I think little things like that help keep the game fresh between new releases or even new variants within a version.

But a few notes here.  Presently, no kingdom starts with more than 13 influence.  The lowest is 9. 

Elves, Dark Elves, Dwarves, and Rangers had minor bumps or a special ability added in the last several months.

Very recently, the Red Dragon has been made stronger in brigade toughness, and the Giant brought into line with that, instead of surpassing the RD fairly significantly which we discovered on the transition.  Again, a single value isn't that useful for ranking brigades.  There is terrain, special abilities, leadership, retreat factors, magic, etc.  But one brigade vs. one brigade with no leaders, magic, in the plains, etc, would see the top several like this:
RD Red Dragon
GI Giants
PH Phoenix
TR Trolls
RA Rangers
WT Wights
OG Ogres
BL Black Dragons

Then there would be perhaps the Ancient Ones, who have great starting leaders and magic, but only a few brigades.  At the very bottom would be Recruits, who would need   perhaps 7 brigades to match 1 Red Dragon brigade in the plains!  Dragon Lords, take heart!  Those with Recruits, you gain a lot by training to Veteran.

We are changing some PC starting values.  In general, you will see more variability.  Villages will be less generic and predictable, such that there may be a key village (or town) in a region worth almost double that of another.  Mountain PC's have a 15% advantage in gold, but are -15% in food production.  Plains PC's produce 20% more food, but 10% less gold. 

Capitals have increased values across - census, defense, gold and food for their terrain, and the capitals of the Sorcerer, Warlock and Witchlord (now) will have about 5k higher defense independent of terrain than other capitals.
