Welcome to this week's development mini diary for A House Divided. It's a mini diary because it's a Christmas special (which are traditionally associated with small things, like Ewoks). We are currently busy with bug fixing and balancing before going off a few days on Christmas holidays, but I thought it would be nice to have an update for you all.

Next diary is after the holidays and will be about new map modes and other things.
