So they will be directly related to you. and they are classified as heros so i wonder what else they can do.
It will be very interesting to see as we get more info... It's just there seem to be a missing link to me, because only Gamespot's article mentioned the children being the channeler's own. The others seem to imply that they are just loyal to you (the channeler)
"In Elemental, while you play as an eternal sovereign you do have a noble family at the heart of your faction, and you can marry off sons and daughters to shore up alliances with other factions" (IGN)
-"a" noble family not "your"?
"The sovereign can also amass vassal families as a resource… Either way, the families loyal to your sovereign evolve throughout the game into various generations—and they might even change sides if you marry off one too many children. Also, they can die and will stay dead." (Kotaku and Gamernook)
-The words "amass", "resource", and "loyal" don't sound too family-like to me I guess
Edit: more eye friendly font
