I have created a new race and entered a flavor text. But obviously that text got lost when I changed the sign.

Imagine my surprise when I started a new game, clicked on my new race and the text just said: "Make it good!"

So plz. either take care that the text stays when you chose a sign or even better: Make it possible to edit the text after creation.

You can edit the text after creation. Custom factions (and sovs) are stored as fairly easy to read and understand XML files under "Documents/My Games/Fallen Enchantress" (for Vista anyway, probably similar for 7/8). You might have to start a new game to see the changes. I mean the issue you reported should certainly be fixed, but for now there's at least a way to salvage any races inadvertently mucked up by it without recreating them from scratch.

Quoting Sanati,

Doh, did not even think about editing the file, I've just been deleting and redoing. Took me about my third try before I realised it was changing the banner that caused the text to vanish, definitely annoying. Thank you!
