  1. Re: Japanese emperor expresses remorse over WW2 for the first time

    I guess one could argue that the NS regime was selectively repressive (targeting very specific demographics/groups), while the SU regime was more (seemingly) random (targeting a lot of "ordinary...

    Re: The European Refugee Crisis

    Wait, so is this about immigrants or about refugees? Those are very different categories with very different implications.

    Rohan's general (the model for FMs, with the white cloak) has an oddly-shaped sword. It has a really big handle section, especially the pommel, and its blade, while not very long, is very broad. This...

    I'm not sure if taking Lathron (the city which controls the Argonath) early on is the most sensible move, because it has no economy (no farming, no trade resources, very poor trade). It does offer...
  8. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

  9. Re: Japanese emperor expresses remorse over WW2 for the first time

    I see you're pushing for "German singularity" here. Many Germans do, too. This of course omits the fact that the SU itself did set up camps in Siberia which were little more than death camps. And so...

    Why? They did surrender as soon as Hitler bit the dust.


    Who exactly was liberated by the Soviets? Are you trying to get to people, or prove some retarded point, by making such statements?

    Yeah, but especially in homeland provinces, these buildings drastically increase income, so it actually makes economic sense to build them, anyway.

    With most provinces, you have to build the highest tier of the cultural conversion tree ("Great Lawkeepers" in this case) in order for the alignment to change. It's well worth it in any case, because...
  17. Re: Why are humans assumed to have moved out of africa?

    From what I've heard, that might be because apparently American researchers have long favoured the view that Neanderthals were primitive brutes. Glad to hear that that seems to be changing.
