The Drunk & The Orderly: Risen 2's Factions

Not everyone inhabiting Risen 2's archipelago will be a pirate, although all players will start that way. But what is a pirate without an authoritarian regime to cock a snook at? The Inquisition, now in a world without magic, are "organised very strictly", which is why they have short haircuts and "walk around in goosestep". Crikey. They're just asking for a carefree buccaneer to rob their precious things. Then there are "the natives", with their shaman, warriors and hunters. Many of them have been enslaved and forced to work on plantations. As for the pirates? They're "drunk most of the time".

Compulsive, thieving gnomes seem like useful companions and I look forward to being a drunken, rambunctious liberator of men and doubloons. If you haven't already, go see the previous video, which shows off the environments this lot will be pillaging and pummeling across.
