    Yeah, I've been using various means to dump the money. My favorite is making a regional patrol armies from whatever trash troops are available to recruit.

    The only way to keep FMs honest is to keep them out of cities - that means they won't get an education and won't learn to manage cities. Also, the risk of them going rebel increases.
    Just a minor note: not every FM gets corrupted over time. Loyalty and optimism greatly help in keeping corruption traits away; selflessness makes your FM almost immune to corruption (the only exception being the Seleukids and the Pothos trait). It's easy to propagate the trait from father to son though, barred the case in which the son itself has the highest level of selflessness.

Also yes, apparently the governors turn into a bunch of David Lee Roths, Ozzy Osbournes, Vince Neils and Tommy Lees from the 1980s, drinking drano and snorting ants.
    As far as I remember those traits weren't changed lately. This may be a player issue rather than a game version issue: you play more -> you get more experienced -> you figure out how to increase revenue more efficiently -> more corruption triggers kick in due to the larger treasure.

    Yeah, it's not 100%, but it's near enough to annoy me to heck
    I recommend a pugio rather than a spear, because in close quarters combat, a dagger will serve you better than a spear.
