The cheek!
A generic pronoun is 'ones' or 'an' not necessarily your.

Would you accept a generic possessive pronoun then?
Well, generic in the sense that most people would use it without thinking, expecting a reasonable person reading it to understand they just meant a given person's empire


>By the time your empire is big enough for logistics to become onerous...

So, this sentence of Max's could also read: "By the time one's empire is big enough to become onerous..."

And there we have a generic possessive pronoun!

My point exactly!



He was clearly replying to me, so the use of 'your' in that instance was easily taken as a statement regarding how I would run (or should run) an empire.

Anyway, enough of this fest, we all know we're all just kidding right?

Oh no! I'm not kidding at all! This is possibly the most serious discussion I'll have all afternoon! No more smilies from me! Or exclams.

Even as we speak teams of ninjas armed with nazis are rappelling out of helicopters in a convergence pattern on your current location.

Woe betide the one who wished to end the smilieing.

Ninjas armed with Nazis? I'm willing to see that spectacle.

Huzzah! My first thread has generated 6 pages of reply! There are some nicely thought out comments here. I understand that it would be tough and not fun to code for this game. I was merely posting this as a kind of wish. Maybe in the next game.

Also, I took the other poster's advice to try another nation. I chose R'yleh. Going to have to read up on that nation now.

If you chose LA R'lyeh... it's going to be just as bad. Except that you're a water nation, so you either have to teleport your mages or spend many turns moving them to get them out of the water and where you need.

Who has the best movements?
Personally for this I like Arcos since their cap-only mages can cheaply travel (air trapeze) to where I need them.

Probably someone with forest and or mountain survival, like pangaea or ulm (ea). It's a little trickier if you want teleporting mages I suppose. Marverni would work if you only recruited carnutes and boar warriors.

It would just be great to clear out some unnecessary clicking
no sorry i didnt mean to make it sound like you would nitpick the game i was just making a general statement.
