  1. Poll: Re: Scottish Independence Referendum is agreed: vote in 2014

    So that's comparable to the UK wide deficit? I guess the counterargument is that included in there are UK wide things like the military that are spent for the benefit of Scotland but that an...
  2. Poll: Re: Scottish Independence Referendum is agreed: vote in 2014

    Sorry, I admit that I'm far less informed than some of you, but this is something I don't understand. By ending the treaty of Union 1707 with England to become two separate countries once again, why...

    Oh sorry, I wasn't talking about language per se, the Anglic tongue was spoken in Scotland, in Lothian, close to the same length of time it has been spoken in England, spreading and diverging from...
  6. Poll: Re: Scottish Independence Referendum is agreed: vote in 2014

    I'm voting yes because Scotland was given only one port (Glasgow) and one town (Dumfries wtf????) in Napoleon total war and everything north of the Forth-Clyde was a wasteland. Not even any...

  8. Re: Anglish - English without non-germanic words

    The Scots dialect is also interesting as it developed as a semi-separate Anglo-Saxon language within the Kingdom of the Gaels as opposed to in the Kingdom of the Normans - if severely blunted by...
  9. Sticky: Re: [Preview] The Kingdom of Aragón and Navarre

    It doesn't differentiate Portuguese from Galician as well, Galician was a Celtic language and in a separate group entirely. I'm not a great expert in Iberia though.

  13. Poll: Re: A Plea to CA for a new engine instead of a soon next Total War game.

    Yes I also voted for a new engine, it really is time in my opinion. Especially if the next game is pre-gunpowder age.

    I'd rather wait for something great than something "okay".

  17. Poll: Re: Scottish Independence Referendum is agreed: vote in 2014

    Thereis no word for "no", you have to use the negative of the verb - in this case think, or believe:
    Cha chreid mi sin. = I don't believe/think that.

    Re: THE TRUTH ABOUT THE BATTLES

    Thing is, the open land battles are fixed enough now to be live up to the previous TW standard of passable, it's the Siege AI and poor politics that Rome2 is most lacking in.

  30. Poll: Re: Splenyi' Realistic Unit Names (Beta Release 0.5) (8/11/2013)

    On second thought it would probably be cleaner to just keep it in one style, either the good Gaulish based version you already have, or consider having a look at what EB:II uses, British rooted...

  35. Re: What is and what should be the most powerful unt?

    The Gallic warrior class were some of the best equipped men in the world at the time and had a good diet high in protein, were a fighting elite just like the Spartans. The Spartans just get more hype.
