    I would join this competition, if my game wouldn't be disconnecting, but I'm too discouraged right now. I hope the update fixes it. If it does, i will join the competition.

    A female witch warrior. This witch would be dangerous and mysterious and lethal when added to an army. She has powers to destroy and wears armor made of lightening. People both fear her and want her power in their armies. She is beautiful and dangerous. Don't cross the sorceress. EVER

    The Golden Goose - a character equipment item that can be found that doubles coin and food production for the owner and/or the owner's alliance. Allow it to be traded between alliance members or go with the owner as he comes and goes. Allow it to be stolen when owner is defeated in battle. Can only be seen through Economic Espionage. Throw a handful of those out there and watch the feathers fly. Put a timer on it as well. Time runs out Goose gets hidden again.

    This would increase, Robber Barron attacks, Economic Espionage, Troop Production, Tavern Building, and Battle Between Alliances as well as get people searching all day and night.

    The challenger goddess.

    She's a warrior goddess that can be sent by one player to announce a one on one duel challenge to another player.

    If the other player accepts the challenge, both players are kicked from their alliance for 24 hours.
    They then proceed with a one on one battle. They are also in protection during the 24 hours from other attacks.

    The duel either ends when the 24 hours is up or a player fails to successfully defend an attack.

    A specific customisable Unit that can be upgraded and modified throughout the game and your rise to the top.

    Limited one per "empire," these Heroes can fight with your troops, and give out a single advantage or moral boost.

    You could pick between:
    Strategist: Extra slots for attacks/ or 10% more glory from battles
    Warrior: 10% bonus to attacks
    Defender: 10% bonus to defence
    Archer: 10% bonus to ranged attacks
    Cavalier: Troops move 10% faster to Battles.

    These heroes can be fully customisable(1) to add a little bit of edge. You can buy basics and upgrades for the Hero, and obviously special upgrades for those that pay with rubies.

    (1) By customisable I mean clothing, physique, weaponry and discipline(bonus).

    Limited to one per Empire, and they cannot die. If an army loses, the hero will return with a 24 hour penalty to their bonus'.
    What do you think?

    Seigneur de Vauban.

    This historical defence genious comes by the castle, just like the architect does. You can get additional decorations to improve the defences of your castle's courtyard. It improves the courtyard bonus with several percentages each. For this you have to pay coins and stones and wood. For the more exlusive ones rubies and building materials.

    I was thinking of a server pixie who has the ability to keep you connected when more than one attack lands on your alliance but I believe that is a bit too far fetched

    The mad genius.

    Calls round periodically with new inventions that have a 50% failure rate. Cannons that may explode & damage your troops when used, or a new plough that increases food production for a fixed period, but if it doesn't work you lose food. No one will know when they purchase his products whether or not they will work. They will help or hinder your game on a random basis

    The Court Jester

    A funny looking character male or female who comes about now and again to poke some fun. The jester would randomly prank buildings in your castles or outposts by a form of sabotage. Not the traditional sabotages! More like painting buildings goofy colours to discourage workers from working as efficiently. Also the jester would tell jokes about the other characters in the game or other in-game references or jokes. I also thought the jester could interfere with taxes and steal taxes from the collector. And every time he/she did it you'd get the caught thief event but with the jester. And you have the option of taking all the taxes back from him, or letting him keep some. And when you open that window he'd always tell a joke to try and keep some taxes. All in good fun the jester would appear to brighten players days.

    I tried not to be technical but I couldn't help myself. I don't care if this is a contest or if it will be implemented but I felt like my idea may be fun to think about for some people.

    The Sorcerer: One wizard available per player but only when they reach the level of King.
    Would be transferable between castles, able to collect equipment and options to increase abilities.

    Hi guys!

    I loved reading through your characters! Thanks for putting the effort in and I hope you had fun in the process :)

    Now for the difficult part... Picking the top 3 was a tough call but it seems to be the right choice!

    Congratulations to the following three players who have been rewarded with Rubies.


    1st place - 3,000 Rubies
