Pack one, entitled Mongol Families, adds a depth of diversity to the game, providing thousands of unique facial combinations for male and female characters of the Mongol cultures. It also contains seven new sprites: Archers both mounted and unmounted, Pikemen, and Light and Heavy divisions of both Cavalry and Infantrymen.

He enjoys games with a strong emphasis on story, which typically fall into the RPG, Action/Adventure, or Horror genres, though he also has a soft spot for fighting games and has been known, when feeling saucy, to shred on some Guitar Hero or Rock Band.
