NPC town placement matches alignment grid

I was looking over the full map and looking at the placement of Riverwatch, Thornkeep, and Fort Inevitable, and it occurred to me that the alignments of the 3 starter cities coordinates with their geographic placement on the map: The lawful good safehold in the top left, the lawful evil on the bottom left (although sliding a bit towards NE?), and the chaotic neutral bandit nest on the middle right.

No real point to make, just thought it was mildly interesting.

But Riverwatch will not be in early EE right?

correct.

Well that is an easier way to remember which is which.

Can anyone imagine the number of variations we're going to hear on "wretched hive of scum and villany"?

That might be on purpose. If the alignment system doesn't work the way they want it to the backup plan might be alignments as a faction wheel.

Will any of the three NPC settlements be available in EE? If so, do we know which ones?

Thornkeep will be available first, probably from the very start of EE. The map will expand south as EE continues, until Fort Inevitable is available. Then the map will expand outward, with Riverwatch being available last.

So at the onset of EE, everyone will begin at Thornkeep, middle right side of the map. As we move through EE, the map will expand southwards and westwards to include Fort Inevitable, then further westwards and northwards to include Riverwatch. Is that what I am envisioning based upon what has been posted by the devs.

And by chance, where would I find that information so I can pass it along to my companies.

First, Thornkeep is dead-center, not middle-right. [Edit] Okay, it's "dead-center" of the coordinate system, not the map itself :)

The Original Land Rush Map and the Land Rush Map both agree on the initial Early Enrollment area, which doesn't include Fort Riverwatch which can be seen in the northwest of A More Detailed Map (even though Lee didn't intend to share that map, and the features outside the Early Enrollment area are likely to change).

Ryan made clear elsewhere that "Fort Inevitable is not on the schedule for the start of Early Enrollment."

It's a very comfortable nest! Full of shiny things!


We have the shiniest things.
