If there was to be a King of Dragon Pass 2, what additions/changes would you like to see?

I think it goes without saying that I love King of Dragon Pass.  Considering its age, I think its held up really well.  However, if there was to be a King of Dragon Pass 2, what would you like to see in it? 

(I know there is a new KoDP on Ipad/Iphone, but from what I've seen and heard, it is a more refined version of the PC KoDP).

One thing I definitely would like is more choices to individualize my clan.  I love the fact that the choices make the clan feel like its *mine*, but I could also see the need fora lot more choices.

For example, allow me to pick some deity other than Orlanth, Ernalda, or Elmal to follow (some of the other clans do seem to follow other deities, like Vinga, Odayla, Urox, Uralda, etc.   I know I would love to go with a clan dedicated to Babeester Gor ;)

Or, expand the list of ancestral enemies (such as including dwarves, dragonewts, etc.)  Some of the fun is actually playing against your clan's history as well...

I would also allow temples to all deities to go to level 3 (if you wish to invest in building them.)  This could also allow for clan conflict.  Build a level 3 temple to Ernalda, and if another clan claims to have her favor, well there could be fireworks.

Probably the biggest change would be to include more events.  The game does an excellent job for clan vs. clan, and internal politics, but I would like to see some more esoteric/exotic stuff to remind me that Glorantha is a world of magic a bit more.

For that matter, maybe have some more meaningful interactions with the nonhumans as well.  Not all things should be seen through the lens of a conflict, or more rarely trade.  Maybe a centaur comes to your clan for asylum...or a creature that is a Chaos monster is actually honorable in their own right.  Maybe you could make a meaningful trade relationship with a troll tribe.

Maps...definitely better maps.  I actually missed the dwarves the first 3 times I played the game by just going straight to Snakepipe Hollow and the Stinking Forest.  Heck, I could even envision merfolk in the depths of Skyfall Lake...

I agree with all you have mentionned, although I'd have to add more heroquests (for lesser gods for example: Vinga, Barntar, Babeester Gor, etc).

I'd also like to be able to be a "deviant" clan: i.e. a Dragonfriend clan, or a chaos worshipping clan (with Ragnaglar, Thed or Malia as a main god). This, in my mind would be a sort of nightmare mode, seeing as it would be hard to be accepted by the other dragon pass clans.

What would also be fun is to be able to play as another race, like a clan of trolls, ducks, beastfolk, telmori, or even vampires! :P

Oh, and a multiplayer mode, with one player controlling an undead/chaos clan, and the other an honorable Orlanthi clan, with the goal or trying to destroy each other might be kind of fun... :)

Also, having different ways to win the long game. For now there are several ways to loose, but only one way to win...

Heh, I would have added more, but my post was quite lengthy as it was ;) 

Additional heroquests would be a must.  The game even hints at a couple others that do go on (such as the Odaylan hunters running one). 

And alternatives to the core clan would be great.  Heck, you could even have a Chaos clan that isn't 'evil' but does make use of Chaos for enlightenment, etc.  In the pnp (pen and paper) books, there are some nations that even do so. 

Definitely need other ways to win the long game as well.  It would be interesting if you could even pick your end goal conditions.

I agree, expansion into another format would be great.  Heck, I envy those with iOS devices as I read up about some of the new content that will appear eventually.  Although, I understand why the old PC version can't be updated.

Perhaps a remake of the game can be done for PC? With additional stuff included. I bought from GoG and it would be sad if only iOS devices enjoy this masterpiece to full extent!

I've been tempted to get an iOS device for King of Dragon Pass alone.  I know I would love to see an update version.  As David Dunham has stated over at GoG, it would need to be rebuilt from the ground up.  As such, it isn't likely to happen.

I know there were others who would love to have it on Android devices as well.  Still, at least those with PCs can get the GoG version.
