Update 1.3 - Pledge your allegiance

Bretonnian and Empire campaigns!

Begin your life as a newly conscripted captain in the Bretonnian or Empire navy. A trickier start than the regular independent game, you'll be commanding either a Buccaneer or a Wargalley.

As a member of your faction's navy you'll be able to capture sea zones and even ports for your home nation, though all your actions will have diplomatic consequences - attack ships from a neutral nation and a war is likely. You'll also have to keep an eye out for relations breaking down depites your actions - a hostile nation suddenly declaring war as you sail through their waters.

Joining the navy has other benefits, with enough loyalty built up with your faction you'll be able to hire elite units such as Sergeants of the Empire and Knights of the Realm.

Elite units come with a special trait (or sometimes several) which make them significantly more powerful than normal crew, but they're not cheap. Bretonnians can also hire Knights of the Realm who gain new traits as they level up, becoming especially powerful at high levels.

You can also hire captains for any spare ships you buy or capture - build your own fleet for an invasion.

Independent captains can also get in on the naval action - if you can build up enough loyalty with a human faction they'll offer to let you join their navy. This comes with all the benefits and downsides above. If you choose you can try leading the Wastelanders to glory or perhaps pledge allegiance to the Pirate Princes of Sartosa.

Beware if you choose to betray the faction you have joined, attacking your own faction's ports, hurting allies of your own faction or just destroying your favour with your own faction by attacking your fellow navy ships will lead to a banishment - you'll forever be hostile to that faction.

Finally, it wouldn't be right to join the navy without flying the correct flags - the sailmaker's shop has now opened at the shipwright's office.

Full list of changes:

- Added Bretonnian start
- Added Imperial Start
- Added military mission to join faction navy (requires high loyalty)

- Joining a faction gives additional discount on ships/refits/repairs
- Feedback messages now appear on map screen

The Old World
A captain in Man O' War: Corsair can sail the coast of a huge continent in the Warhammer world. Visiting over 50 ports from Erengrad to Sartosa, the sea is yours to explore.
A heroic adventurer does not only have enemy ships to contend with. The deep and unexplored oceans hold terrifying creatures that few see and live to tell the tale.
These deadly creatures emerging from the deep sea will chill blood and drop jaws in equal measure. The wise would attempt to flee but those brave enough to tackle such creatures will be famed throughout the world.

Here there be monsters....
