Thanks Drifter, this is so cool. I had asked Dresden about this a while back but it wasn’t a priority so I wrote it off. Really cool
to have someone like you taking the initiative. I’m playing now with the barbarian plus Egypt version.

I did want to flag two things for you: first, that even for other factions (I’m playing as Pontus), the female “cursos honorum” matches the general tree rather than the abbreviated female version. Secondly, sending females on diplomatic missions still increases their rank by one point each mission. It’s functioning normally for men. Now I’m not too worried about it because while it creates an easy exploit for the player, I can just abide by house rules not to use it.
