I was delighted a few weeks ago when it was announced that new features are being developed that will (hopefully) breathe some new life into this game! Being able to play as the other factions, each with their own path towards victory, is a very good move, imo.
One thing I'd like to know, however, is if this means there will be racial variety for sovereigns... In other words, if I play as the wraith faction, is my sovereign also a wraith? Because I'd rather not be a human or human-looking leader of an undead faction.
