Im sure your talking about the book in which he was trapped in the Old world, I believe he had lost his memories, and was living with Nicci? trust me, while he does spend that book being an idealogical blabbermouth, thats hardly cannon as far as empire building or questing is concerned. It just seemed to be a wasted book. The bible is the best selling book, and they don't include books that don't fit. We don't have to consider books that don't actually add to the characters or story. Basically anything that deviates from the main storyline ... if you wanted to be a purist you could exclude Jenna's non-magical quests as well. Although that might be a "special city" where you can recruit soldiers completely immune to magic (after winning them over with a certain amount of prestige of course) ... I've never seen a mod which included as much Dogma as it did story.
Her name is Jennsen. And I wasn't talking about Faith of the Fallen, it is actually one of the best books in the series. The political agenda works in the context of that particular story.
If you were going to have a "War game" mod, it would only involve non-filler storyline (why he had filler, no-one-knows)... but if you had read past the filler, he goes on to continue the story again, with the same skill and focus that he wrote the first few books. All that book was, was him talking about how he didn't like communism, because he was living in a communist city, under the thumb of his arch-rival emperor no less. If anything it was anti-communist propaganda, not American idealism. There was no manifest destiny, just hints of egalitarianism, which was revered by certain intellectuals among the french far before it was involved in American idealogy.
In other words, no, it wouldn't have to adress ideology, because it did not have a meaningful presence in the series. It was his "soap-box book" I think.
Again I wasn't talking about Faith of the Fallen, and I have read the entire series. Everything including and after Naked Empire is a right wing diatribe. Every character on the "good" side goes on multi-page long rants about ideology. It is central to the story from then on.
And no a mod wouldn't have to include this stuff and could be fun, although I think I would set it during the time of the wizard's war that erected the barrier between the old and new worlds.
