Long time ago, Frogboy himself talked about some hypotetical presence of characters (Heroes) in GalCiv III. Not a promise but an idea. Since then, I have never been able to forget that. I did forget where I read it though.
Anyway, I bought MoO 1 and 2 long ago in GoG and enjoyed them (mostly 2). And while I haven't played them in a very long time, I do remember being able to hire characters that I could then send to planets for some bonuses or using them in my fleets for similar reasons.
As people loves to speculate, do you think that we will get something like that for GalCiv III? Would you like the idea? Hate it? If it were to be implemented, how do you think it should work?
