As stupid as this question sounds, I’m just looking for a more “storyline” support. So are the starting founding villagers the founders of a nation? If so, do villagers just come from the edge of the map? Or will there be some predetermined factions/empires that will occasionally have immigrants that come to settle in your town?
Or if your starting villagers are not the founders of a nation, will there be randomly generated factions/kingdoms that the player can choose to be a part of? That way, it would make sense where the new villagers would come from.
Also, for incoming villagers, will they come will a random set of resources? I’d imagine some immigrants to come with more than clothes on their backs and maybe in a caravan.
