  1. Re: What's your favorite "royal army" to build, and what is the lore/history behind it?

    Katoikoi Thraikes are a worthy supplement/replacement, for sure, although it is a shame to lose the Hyperaspistai, especially if you're playing as Pergamon.
  2. Re: What's your favorite "royal army" to build, and what is the lore/history behind it?

    No, it changes a lot more than that and even affects the royal army listed above, since the "West Anatolian Elite Infantry" (i.e. Hyperaspistai) also disappear and would ostensibly have to be...

    Friendly Reminder

    Hi Akar! This is just a friendly reminder that if you don't have my :wub:ing money by tomorrow, I am going to execute one hostage every hour until my demands are met.

  5. Re: Roman Emperor Project from Daniel Voshart

    Don't believe the fake news media, there were very fine people on both sides, i.e. Julio-Claudian dynasty and the Flavian dynasty. :surprise:

  6. Re: What's your favorite "royal army" to build, and what is the lore/history behind it?

    Cool setup, although you should create a second list for units that exist beyond the Hellenistic Thorakitai reforms that kick in around 222-220 BC. It creates sweeping changes for Hellenistic...

  11. Re: KH being able to build military colonies and Hellenistic poleis

    Nice work! Also, I will have to agree about the last point on natives, having recently played both Koinon Hellenon and Makedonia campaigns where this sort of thing was very noticeable in the Black...

    I agree with blackbirdgriffin and Satapatis, the Illyrians are the most obvious choice for a new faction given how they have tons of existing native units for an almost complete roster (minus a...

  20. Re: Possible portrait of Cleopatra VII from the House of the Orchard in Pompeii

    Not that it's terribly important, but Cleopatra probably looked fine or at the least average looking.

  30. Re: Uighurs in China are Blindfolded and Led to Boxcars in Drone Footage.

    By far the best post in this thread, since the reality here is more nuanced and multifaceted here than just "communism bad" or "communism not guilty". Even the word "communism" in a present-day...
