Star Dynasties First Major Update: New Extort System, Spy Events, and Bug Fixes

Star Dynasties - Intrigue Update
Star Dynasties - Intrigue Update Steam

Star Dynasties recently received a major update that reworked the intrigue mechanic and fixed issues with the honor system. The intrigue system now allows players to get more information, like revealing the target’s residence and getting petty secrets of the character in a location.

Additionally, the developers have added two new changes: extort mechanic and spy events. The extort system is similar to blackmail. Successful extortion always leads to rewards, but bigger rewards are limited to select targets. The spy events present players with some decisions that can give them advantages in their ongoing missions. Players might even get some information about a character with lots of power, which they can take advantage of.
