Hello players of Pathfinder Online! Lisa here, with a sizeable update and roadmap into the future.
These are the Release Notes for Early Enrollment v11.6. This build was deployed to the Live Servers on Friday, February 24, and has been running on the Test Servers since Monday, February 13.
This release adds Siege Engines and Siege Camps, which can be placed like Holdings and Outposts in the hexes surrounding a settlement in order to damage the settlement and ultimately take it over. The recipes to craft the Siege Engines and Camps are available as loot drops, and they’re available in both Tier 2 (Professional’s) and Tier 3 (Master’s) versions. The complete rules for sieging a settlement will be posted shortly, with all the rules and damage calculations handled by GM's. Once those rules are finalized, we'll provide at least 2 weeks of warning before they go into effect. Meanwhile, this update will allow everyone to begin collecting the required recipes and crafting siege equipment in preparation.
The next update, which we hope to release in early February, will add the ability to craft and deploy a new type of holding called a Siege Engine and a new type of outpost called a Siege Camp. By placing a Siege Engine and two Siege Camps in each hex surrounding a settlement, and then feuding the founders, companies can attack the settlement, first destroying bulk goods in the Settlement Upkeep vault, then damaging and destroying the settlement's structures. Once all the structures have been destroyed, the settlement leaders will be removed from power, leaving the settlement unclaimed. Unclaimed settlements can then be claimed by surrounding them with holdings, each supported by two outposts.
