    Sticky: Re: [Official] Reform requirements - as at 2.3

    In my experience, the Archon traits seem to occur erratically. Some FMs never become Archons, despite being of the right ethnicity as governors, and being battle-hardened etc. Also, I never got more...

    I think they were going for a lighter, more "whimsical" tone in accordance with the books. That's why everything is more over the top in the Hobbit movies (except perhaps Hogo Weaving's Elrond. He...

    Re: Rad compares units - a thread for balancing.

    Some questions:

    - Indohellenic lancers still have the AP attribute on their lances.
    - What does the "knight" attribute do and why do Armenian cataphracts have it, but not Parthian and Saka ones?...

    Re: Amazon's "Lord of the Rings" series

    Fair enough, I can't remember reading any of these. I'm just skeptical because any fantasy novels I've read so far, not to mention movies, just doesn't compare to Tolkien.
