I haven't been following developments too closely but was reading Liu Bei's thing and found it interesting that his initial dilemma involves Tao Qian, then it mentions you can do another confederacy when Liu Biao passes away, and then that you need to think about your heir. For a game that was rumored for a while to start at one point, with that point being when someone like Liu Bei was still relatively young, that suggests the passage of a significant chunk of time in-game. I'd expect the heir issue to be a bigger plot point for Sun Jian, or even possibly Cao Cao I suppose, but not Liu Bei (the last of these three to go) so much.

Apparently Liu Bei is arrow proof, quite accurate to history :lol:
He is also a Wood Elf, you learn something new every day :P

Liu Bei as an elf checks out with the novel:

I knew I hated him for a reason

Appearance is pretty decent, looks middle aged and intelligent, white robes and armour work but the gold edgings and sleeves really detract. I do sort of get nature's ally due to his running away skills but it sounds so weird

I'm still hoping to make Liu Shan heir but be surprised if get that far

Yeah I'm not sure what time frame they're planning for the game but I wouldn't be surprised if they skip Liu Shan and give Liu Bei a randomly generated heir like other Total War games.

Edit:
Guan Yu's poster is up.

Good costume, it is what one expects with beard, long face, certain look but it knits together and looks good. God of War seems like it could be overpowered so I assume there are ways of keeping one-blowing from being overpowered and skills seem well suited to him

Abilities seem to fit. He looks crazed in the poster. :lol:

Zhang Fei looks great! I prefer such insane depictions of him. I suspected they’d incorporate his roar in some way. He seems like he’ll be fun to play with!
Have a question about a book or academic article before you buy it? Maybe I have it!

I really like these portraits! I don't suppose anyone feels confident enough to make avatars out of them?

EDIT: Then they release Zhuge Liang's portrait and it's the first one I don't really like...

I really liked what they did with Zhang Fei (and red background helps), there is indeed something very wild about him, powerful, fierce,I like he has short sword ready just in case, skills set suit him perfectly. I have a suspicion we aren't going to see Zhang Fei the tactical though

Zhuge Liang, well I think they have built up enough "characters more based on novel" that it won't draw too many complaints. I think the costume looks a little too big for the body and cut the hat tails! There is something slightly... poser about him perhaps? He looks alright and it plays on the usual costume with good choice of colours, skills work well for him.
