I guess Cave Provinces = Darkness, perhaps restricted/prohibited flying, too. But I think they're stretching it as far as archers are concerned... Line of sight etc. Caves so big that they allow heavy cavalry to charge ? Uhh..
I'd rather see something more intresting and probably radical, like size restriction. Creatures size 3+ can't enter. But it won't happen.

Fire Arrows - a bit puzzling. If it works for chakram and shuriken, why not for slingers ? Actually I didn't have a chance to test it with slingers.

Fire Arrows does work with slings.

Since many Agarthans are size 3+, it'd be rather odd if they couldn't enter their native terrain.

It does make sense that in general ranged attacks be much less useful in caverns. I think it's somewhat the case anyway due to the darkness. But a range limit would make sense.

I gave size3 as example because I believe Cavalry is size3. I could be wrong.
Somehow caves feel more appropriate to small parties (read: RPGs), I can't picture big armies fighting there.
Uhhh, it's not all lost ! I hope there's a big supply problem in caves. That would sort of fix it.

I'm happy and suprised because I requested that there would be support for cavernous provinces but IIRC devs didn't say anything about it.

Aren't you more glad that #defmult will work?
I just hope they realize that its not only 20 that doesn't work :X

And regarding caves, I'd expect that a whole civilization living in a cave would have several large open areas (either natural, or artifical through mining), to get together. And also so they can breath :X

I was thinking huge underground caverns, not what we typically associate as 'caves'. If there were actually cramped provinces, it might be sort of messed up.

I'm fairly sure that this is refering to the Cave forts that Argatha and Abyssia have.
