    Re: The EBII of the Medieval Era?

    Is it unfitting for the medieval period, though? The Byzantine restoration under Basil II the Bulgar Slayer brought much of the Balkans and other areas of the Mediterranean under the Eastern Roman...
  3. Are there any units from export_descr_units that aren't used in the game/main campaign?

    Re: Trump repudiates Iran nuclear deal

    I do love that evolution of medieval armor into the early modern period. Some of those helmet types remind me of Rick Moranis' Dark Helmet from Spaceballs, though. :tongue:

    Well, the proof is in the pudding, so to speak, with that vote count so far (13 in favor of ancient times, only 1 in favor of medieval thus far). Perhaps I'll get different results in the Vestigia...
