Magic Bazaar.

I do have the expansion, though I haven't played it for quite awhile. I put a lot more hours into the original than the expansion.

That's great that monks will buy the potions at the Bazaar, just commenting that a weapon-wielder would have a lot more to spend their gold on.

Maybe they're both in? We'll have to see.

I'm wondering about the new icons that accompany the screen descriptions:

Dirgo - sword, shield, chest & flagon(?), with the sword lit up red.
Barracks - spear, axe, sword & halberd, with the spear lit up blue.
Palace - flagon, chest, scroll & sword with none lit up.
Temple (not Temple to Dauros, just Temple) - no icons (!?)
Blacksmith - shield, sword, axe, halberd with none lit up.

Any thoughts, wavefront?

Plus, I don't see any indication for building level or research options. Also, I notice that the Majesty's commanding hand is replaced by a pointer that can light up green or red. Oh, the possibilities...

maybe with the barrack you choose the type of follower you want to recruit.

then with the dirgo its a choice of types of flags or something.

and finally with the blacksmith its what type of weapon you wish to research or create

Yeah, the buttons are strange. I was scratching my head trying to figure out the relationships between the buttons and what was displayed to the left of them. I can only state that the whole interface looks like it has been reworked.

I was thinking they might be different types of reward flags as well. The sword could be attack (kill), the shield defend (building, person, area, whatever), the chest could be "go here" (like an explore flag). The flagon? Drink here? Free ale?

Also note that the palace screenshot replaces the shield with a scroll, and the buttons are in a different order.

Well, roads are one thing - but what about those City Walls? I'm assuming that the hexagonal lines around the city are actually walls - they seem thicker and have a different colour from roads. Surely the player must have some control over the building of those walls, and if so, I wonder how Cyberlore has managed to get around the problem of AI-controlled heroes getting stuck behind walled areas - one of the main reasons why we didn't have walls, or rivers, or mountains in the original Majesty.

Oh man, I'll need to get a new computer for this.

another confusing found, Above the head of the amazon in one of the barrack shots ( with peasants ) there is a piece of paper with 2 walking man symbol over the head of the amazon.

reward flags ? thought indicator ? trafic lights ? anyone ?

and crown indicator beside the gold indicator is very new, and very confusing

also, there appeared to be a lot more peasants ( FAST TECH anyone ? FAST tech )

Maybe that means she's single?

I was wondering about the crown thing, too.

Based on the original game, my guess is that the paper is a thought indicator. Looks like she is taking a walk or following somebody.

I saw those red and blue bars with Dirgo's portrait, but those same bars accompany the buildings as well, so that might rule out mana. Since the crown is the symbol of authority, perhaps the Crown 'resource' is some sort of Authority Pool that allows you to perform certain actions in the game, although how it would be replenished is another thing. Perhaps by achieving certain goals? As Dragon mentioned, the symbol above the Amazon looks very similar to the thought bubble that Heroes display before performing an action, which there are probably many more of than the standard ones we are used to. One thing is for sure, everything does look quite different. It's almost as if Cyberlore only hung on to just enough recognizable features so that eveybody would know that this IS Majesty 2, and not an entirely different game.

Maybe the number next to the Crown is a population count.....
