Finally, an outpost worth building (outside of Archer's tower). Though I still think they should be able to be adjacent. Just seems too restricting.

"May not be placed next to another outpost"

Yeah I wonder what their logic behind that rule is , because the warlord is already hindered a lot by not having access to arcane easily, eliminating that text on all the outposts would make them MUCH more playable. Spamming conjurations takes some time anyway.

I always wanted to ask Patrick why outposts have that restriction............(maybe he will tell me

I'm sure there are balance reasons that just aren't revealed to us as of yet. Possibly something to do with the God of War coming in Forged in Fire.

My guess is just to limit it a little, three outposts is fairly comfortably managable, say barracks, armory and archers tower. Now if you could build close, you'd probably have construction yard as well. Especially early, it'd be great, but for the price you'd be starting to churn out a lot of cheap well protected creatures... and that'd just be on your own corner/4 squares!

Maybe thematically the term outpost seemed a little inappropriate if you build them in a huddle...

Yeah but I just think comparing it to the priestess, another conjuration heavy mage (possibly), temples don't have that restriction, granted they aren't necessarily as powerful, but offset by a cheaper cost than outposts

As someone said, finally, a decent outpost.
Still tricky to manage non-adjacency, but this is a step in the right direction.
