Armchair General

Hampstead, NC, 06 March 2008

The best keeps getting better!  The mad Swedish geniuses behind the multi-award winning Dominions 3: The Awakening, Illwinter Game Design, and their publisher Shrapnel Games (that would be us) would like to announce a brand new patch is available for the game. 

As you’ve come to expect the patch, which is version 3.15, contains a mixture of cool new features and the elimination of a number of bugs.  Players will happily note that one of those eliminated bugs is the scale spread bug that brought woe to some.  Some other notable highlights that should bring a smile to your face and put a spring in your step: MA Ulm and LA Abysia boosted and Ermor domkill at proper levels now.
