    Re: Iberian Linen armor

    Most of the "leather" armor was either rawhide or cuirboili (not to mention it was mostly scale/lamellar to capitalize on the greater stiffness of the smaller pieces). Unhardened, soft tanned leather...

    TBH I'd slow down the population growth... If it's possible on the game engine. It's not taking very long for the one's major settlements to turn into the Rome or Alexandreia-rate behemoths.

    You need to simply translate the name to Chinese because the initial stages of government for Greeks and Romans are more-or-less this. "The land taken with a spear" and "regional pacification". I...

    On the other hand, Thureophoroi recruitment is increased by the military reform which has a prerequisite of giving grants of free land to the citizen to increase the amount of citizenry able to serve.

    Well, if Latins can't give me BP then Genuosion is going to stay a Hellenised backwater. I've no need for them if they can't return the investment.

    Is it possible to install a Basilike Patris in Rome, though? It'd be a nice crowning to my current campaign to eventually build it there after the place is properly hellenised.
