When I expanded my little oasis into an outpost and started mining the top of a nearby mountain then attacks started coming from on high. After a while an orc camp showed up right as a defiled church was built… right by one another. They started into a pretty big brawl up on the mountain top!
Here’s the save game if you’re interested!
Also it’s a pretty good little outpost. 33 Hearthlings and running as well as I’d expect. Building up a new, interesting town square with a tall tower. Great place to put down all of the nice things the little Hearthlings are crafting!

OMG…so of course I jump in the fight with my two squads. It’s going OK… but then some trolls and kobolds flank in !!! Crazy fight…
Really hope it’s a feature! It’s actually very interesting to see the other NPC factions going at it. Can even be a strategy. Several times on different games I waited for goblins and orcs to attack the undead before I roll in and mop them both up.
It’s something I’ve noticed and definitely enjoyed watching. It’s fun to see them go at it and then you can pick off the victor.
Although I did find out the hard way that your hearthlings always seem to take priority on their aggro tables. If a goblin has the choice of swinging at your footman or a skeleton, they’ll go for your hearthling.
