    Re: [PREVIEW] New Changing Traits System

    If they don't it'd probably be historically inaccurate - we're talking about a culture that cooked food with lead to give themselves "martial spirit" ;)

    How do you appoint governors?

    I can see AI Roman governors in their provinces, but i can't work out how i'm meant to appoint any myself as Carthaginians.

    How accurate did they need to be though, to hit just a big unit of close formation soldiers? Surely unless they fired over their heads they'd find it hard to miss?
