ooooh, cool analysis-
they differ slightly base stat wise. in growths and class they are different! Plot wise there's a reason you can only pick one. That's gonna be an on going thing in bloodlines, hopefully. Where you have a choice of picking a unit to stay, and in turn not being able to use another.
i don't really know how many chapters there will be at this point for part 4 haha. Its pretty plot heavy and i need chapters to explain stuff. def more than 4 though!
as for playable horses... there's a concept I'm working on: Familiars.
I'm really interested in seeing if there are ways to play with AI so a familiar can be commanded to either attack enemies, or stay in place, or follow the familiar's 'master'.
I'm sure there's a way. @Brendor, is that doable? (I'm also testing the AI's again, since i'm working on another chapter with 3rd factions.) but yeah.
