It really is illogical to me. It would be better to give the Ninja guy that ability and just leave the FO with challenging and training. I also think the FO is far too good at killing Japanese people he challenges - Unless maybe he shoots them with his pistol when they start drawing their swords! Seems like it.
    I can only assume that by Foreign Advisor and FO you mean the Foreign Veteran, or FV, no?

    At any yet, I agree that a "nanban" sabotaging buildings seems like an amazingly bold thing for a foreigner to be doing at the drop of a hat. Is there any historical precedent for such things occurring during the Boshin War, I wonder.

    I picked FV for the awesome bonuses they give to the army. But Ishin and their counterparts are pretty darn close.

    Agreed humble, I think the Foreign Veteran is too powerful, he's better than the Shinobi at killing enemy generals. I prefer a more specialised agent system like Medieval 2 TBH.

    FV - but agree that he should be restricted to military training etc and shouldn't be acting as an agent otherwise in most respects. Veterancy bonuses are very much welcome and I think in terms of added training they do make sense.
    Man is the only animal that deals in that atrocity of atrocities, War. He is the only one that gathers his brethren about him and goes forth in cold blood and calm pulse to exterminate his kind. He is the only animal that for sordid wages will march out...and help to slaughter strangers of his own species who have done him no harm and with whom he has no quarrel. ..And in the intervals between campaigns he washes the blood off his hands and works for "the universal brotherhood of man"-- with his mouth.

    We the willing, led by the unknowing are doing the impossible for the ungrateful, we have done so much for so long with so little, we are now qualified to do anything with nothing.

    Unless I need to steal a general, My Geishas generally sit in my towns to increase the growth of town wealth. Occasionally, I'll imbed them with an army for a boost to morale, but my preferred agents with an army would be 2 foreign veterans (for boosts to reload, accuracy,ammo quantity, etc and a shinsengumi (for boosts to melee defense).

    duh.

    They're prostitutes that won't put out.
    The worst kind of prostitute.

    Seriously though: In the game they function as more of a building than an agent and are neither as "cool" as the ISHIGUMI, or as funny as the Foreign veteran.
