    If the Grigori no longer get Adventurer points, how do they get adventurers? Do they just automatically spawn in the capital?

    Yes, just like the Awakeneds spawn in the Scions capital ;)

    It's a welcome change. :goodjob:

    Any way to increase the odds of an adventurer spawning?

    Increase the number of your taverns and adventurers guilds and run the apprenticeship civic (I guess it has been renamed in .24) :)

    Assuming Ahwaric didn't change my setup too much, your capital will give you an initial boost in order to help fight the turn decay... Should start around a 6% chance per turn. After that, it will increase for each tavern, adventurer guild, and whatever other buildings originally supplied Adventurer points... Apprenticeship will boost it as well, or whatever Ahwaric renamed it to. :lol:

    My test games up to 250 I got around 4... Slightly more than I'd have had before the change, but it'll balance out towards the end game... Unless you expand rapidly, it's a pain to keep the counter up.

    Thanks. Perhaps that info will go into the Civilopedia eventually. :)

    I just played a game on Normal speed with the Grigori. I think I got 8 Adventurers in the first 100 turns...

    So what has become of the Grigori World Spell. That used to be a great way of summoning a bunch of adventurers (and the occasionally other GPP) in a time of need.

    Okay, but:

    A) the counter on the screen never went over 4%, I got double that (I know, it's random and only one case, but still)

    B) Adventurers are powerful, getting 8 of them felt too much

    Yeah, seems like we're getting a lot of adventurers... I did spawn four of them in 40 turns :lol: Maybe it is just pure luck?

    Pure luck, like getting a bunch of Awakened at the same time. The one issue I have with how I set it up... I'm really tempted to reduce the chance based on how many living units with the 'Hero' promotion you have.

    Intrigued by what others have reported I just tried a game as Grigori.

    I only got 2 adventurers in the first 100 turns. :(

    Maybe the "natural" Adventurer chance could be reduced, but in return the Grigori could gain the ability upgrade any of their GPs to Adventurers.

    Question: I think that "Apprenticeship" has been renamed to "Vasselage," but when I adopt it, the little counter at the top-left corner (which I assume is the chance per turn to get an adventurer) doesn't go up ... why?

    The Apprenticeship bonus is in my version, not sure it is in Orbis.

    I assume that it's scaled by gamespeed, so were you playing with normal speed?

    Is is just me, or do the AI's not know how to use their adventurers?
    Every time I have the Grigori in a game, they end up being wiped out by the lizardmen or something in the first 150 turns.

    It uses the same gamespeed scaling the Awakened spawning does, because I gutted that code for the Adventurers... Again, assuming Ahwaric used my code and not just the idea behind it. :lol:
