If I was playing in peaceful (as I have in the past) there would be no undead (though there were in the past) or scattered goblin raids. The problem is that I’ve been doing more building than anything else, and even though my aqueduct looked awesome, it didn’t increase my net worth above 2.x K.
for what its worth, I have found that simple wooden fences, as opposed to impassable stone walls, have kept the wolves at bay… I have time to prepare a party and send them out to destroy any camps that pop up on the outskirts of my settlements…
I think the Game Master AI needs to pick up on when ppl are meta gaming the system eventually. Something simple like a 10 day check to see if the settlement value is mysteriously staying stagnant for many days. After every 10 days check the settlement value and increase the chance to spawn a event by 20% (starting a 0).
Maybe add another mode Peaceful/Casual/Normal eventually? (If you all have this planned already just ignore me :)).
You still could, all it would do is just spawn a event. Doesn’t need to be a forced war event I think they want thing’s to have a multi- approach, were you can settle things with different avenues. For all I know it could be a plague event that effects your village and you need to find the cure.
