So what's the deal with the big event that comes up when you murder an innocent champion? For those who haven't done this yet, killing champions in 2B leads to the game bringing up an ominous cutscene, proclaiming that the world now sees your sovereign as a cold-blooded monster.
Does this even have diplomacy ramifications? Will traveling champions start to fear you or attack you in later builds? Can we expect more awesome moral ramifications like this throughout the game? There's a lot of potential here for awesomeness.
Destroyed too many trees with your lumber operations? The people who call the woods home would like to have a word with you. Divorced too many wives? You're now known as a womanizer and only the lowliest wenches want to look at you. Sent too many sons to their deaths in war? Sects of your family start to turn against you. Murdered 20 champions? The criminal syndicates of Elemental want to offer you some high-paying, high-risk assassination jobs.
There's just sooooo much you can do with this, Stardock!
